--- Bring troops up through Libya from French Equatorial Africa, which will surround the Ottomans on three sides as our troops from Algeria continue to push to meet the British.

--- Present War Propaganda to the public and encourage public service by signing up to defeat the duplicitous Turks who are being supported by the Kaiser all the while they had promised France they'd begin toning down their relationship with Germany.

--- Troops in Tripoli are advised to resupply and push on.

--- 1 full army from France will be sent to assist the British at Mersin.

--- Continue to push hard for Istanbul.

--- All other fronts are to continue pushing as planned.

--- Work to double factory output. Present this to the public as a victory for the French worker.

So far it's been good.

I must say I am surprised that three players already decided to gang up against the Ottomans and try and carve their Empire, xD

This is getting really amusing! (specially with the PM's I have received so far)

I'm a little bitter right now, considering I barely had time to scratch my nose.

I'm sorry Kal. If it makes you feel any better though, I could very well be knocked out of the game before you if I lose the election.

We thank you for your generous assistance to the people of Martinique. We will let you know of any further developments when they become available to us.

-- The French Republic declares that a state of war exists between itself and the Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans have acted with treachery and have worked to oppress the people's of the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe for far too long. We join our allies Britain and Russia to bring about an end to this oppressive regime.

--- French troops that were brought to Cyprus to work with the British will join the efforts of shelling Dardanelles.

--- French troops in Algeria will push into Libya in an attempt to link up with the British Sepoys coming from Egypt in a pincer movement.

--- French troops stationed in Tunisia will begin joining British forces in their effort to take Tirana.

--- The French Navy will join the British blockade of the Mediterranean.

--- Begin mass producing the weapons to fight the war in Paris. Maximize production of machine guns to be sent to the troops.

--- Place an embargo on all trade between France, her colonies and the Ottoman Empire.

--- Troops being brought back from China are to begin being directed to Turkey, linking up with our British allies where possible with the ultimate goal of pushing on Istanbul.

The French Republic: Early 1902


--- The French Republic hereby declares that a state of War exists between it and the Ottoman Empire. We will aid our British allies and protect French interests in doing so.

--- France wishes to convey its condolences to the Roosevelt family and the people's of the United States.

--- I call upon the German Empire to return Alsace-Lorraine to France where she rightfully belongs for the sense of peace between our nations.

--- I will continue to build my left to center coalition for the general election. I will release anti-right propaganda and I will promise that a mandate in favor of my government will protect trade unions right to strike, will create a basic welfare state and will work to curb the interests of the powerful and corrupt. I will combine these left views with more centrist views such as the curbing of anarchism.

--- I will send money (100,000 francs) and relief assistance to Martinique. I will send a group of three French naval vessels and relief workers to assist in aiding survivors and cleaning up. We also ask our allied nations to please provide some assistance for the people of Martinique.

Yeah, I remember him from my kid years. Sad Still, I was never a big fan of him, and yes, I always heard he was a jerk and that there was a lot of turmoil with him, but he was one of the early ones to have a completely ripped body.

One Summer-slam he beat the utterly hated, awful Honkytonk Man in like 20 seconds or something - Honkytonk never got out of his outfit (some hilarious Elvis costume). Warrior just wiped him out. It was funny, that I remember.  

I'll be totally honest, I never liked the guy and I balked at the idea of him being put in the HOF when a better worker (and better money draw) like Randy Savage wasn't.

Savage had a tremendous gimmick. He could play good or bad like few others.

Well, that was Honky's gimmick. He was actually one of the few guys who got along with Warrior (at least if his shoot interviews are to be believed, but HTM likes to work people even during one of those, so who knows).

But hey, if he mellowed out and I hear he was nice to the guys in the back and was approachable, then maybe the nightmares I've heard about him are overstated.

I do feel sorry for his young daughters and I do feel sorry for his wife. I also feel sorry for all the guys in the back who were so excited to meet him and then get crushed by news that he's dead.

AAAAAAUGH!!! WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE OUT WEST!

It's not that good.  Pennsylvania has Shake Shack which is better in every way anyway.

Plus, you have PYT.  They made a burger for a while that had deep fried pizza instead of a bun.  That's basically the pinnacle of American food culture.



That's all the way out in Philly. Suppose I'll stick with the O. and Primanti's.

That the republic should be governed not by the church but by the elected lawmakers. Wealthy Religious bodies must now be subjected to the same regulations as the ordinary French citizen.  How specific do you want me to be?
(France was a democracy yet :p)
Your economic plan. What are you planning to do in order to be support by the socialists?
You definitely need their votes! You risk to fall!

I don't know anything about where France was at this time, so I can only guess here... I'll support allowing trade unions to form if they haven't already, to strike for better pay and wages. I will also offer to begin creating a basic welfare state, public health services and old age pensions. I will also institute a program of public works to repair infrastructure and help the out of work.

That a bit more helpful (This would have been so much easier if I could've been the UK or US Tongue)

The French Republic: Late 1901


--- I refuse to cave to right-wing pressure and instead press that the civil power must be supreme. I will bring my party, the Republicans into an alliance with the Left Block of Socialists and Radicals to prepare and will begin to take my message to the country.

--- In order to combat the growing threat, I will beef up security and the police and arrest any anarchists that direct attempts at my or any other public figure's life. I will tone down the rhetoric on anarchism and instead direct it towards the clerical issue.

--- As the Boer War begins to close, I will begin gradually redirecting the troops back into my North African colonies. I will leave 3000 troops in Natal to continue to assist Great Britain in the Boer War. The 2000 withdrawn troops will move into French Algeria.

--- I will also begin withdrawing my troops from most of southern China except for Guangzhouwan. Half those troops will be moved to British bases in Cyprus or Tunisia. The other half will be brought home.

It's very close with mine, so I'd say Antonio and I are in broad agreement on most issues.
