Yet Another Decree

1. With the war efforts ending, His Sacred and Imperial Majesty orders that an appropriate amount of spare resources shall be used as a relief for his subject in Egypt, suffering after bad harvest.

2. In order to avoid such developments in the future, His Sacred and Imperial Majesty orders, that a new governmental body shall be created and tasked with a) Gathering and maintaining strategic reserve of grain and other long-preserved food items. b) Preparing contingency plans to deal with the consequences of bad harvest, as well as account for other disasters. c) Organize and maintain an infrastructure to carry out its tasks.

Iowa is still probably lean Democrat, and it was a fluke in 2016.

I'm old enough remember people saying the same thing about West Virginia in 2000/2004

44  General Discussion / History / If you were a judge at the Nuremberg Trial on: September 23, 2017, 10:12:13 am
Would you change/modify certain sentences?

Generally I consider most of the sentenced passed to be fully justified, including death penalty (you know my stance on capital punishment, but I very much doubt I'd oppose it back then in case of major Nazi leaders). However those are examples where I feel judgement was either too harsh, or too lenient:



Albert Speer: There's no doubt the Court was pleased with him making things easier by "admitting common responsibility", and that he benefited from certain facts not being yet known. Still, in terms of guilt, he very well qualified for the gallows or, at the very least (if the Court wanted to show leniency due to his conduct at the trail) life in prison.

Hjalmar Schacht: I see Schacht as guilty on count one (conspiracy to wage aggressive war), because of his role in willingly helping to make rearming possible (as he himself hinted he participated in violating the Treaty of Versailles). I'd give him a small prison term.

Fritz Sauckel: If Speer were to escape with his neck intact, then in the name of consistency Sauckel, his subordinate, should've been spared as well. The only reason he hung while Speer just sent to jail was that Speer was clever and he was not. It doesn't of course dimihisn the weight of Sauckel's guilt.

Karl DŲnitz: I'm split on this one, given his conduct was submarine/fleet chief was largely within the boundaries. I'd still give him some prison term for accepting the Commando Order when he succeeded Raeder.

Alfred Jodl: I'm split on this one too. Jold probably deserved prison term for passing on  Commando Order (among others), but I feel his guilt wasn't greater than fellow generals tried in subsequent trials, and neither of whom was sentenced to death. Some charges against Jodl were untrue, like the "conspiracy to wage aggressive war", since he didn't even came into Hitler's staff till after the war already started.

Walther Funk: The complicity of institutions ran by Funk in the Holocaust and other war crimes were clear, meriting death penalty.

On The Subject Of Military Reform

It it his Sacred and Imperial Majesty the Sultanís will that:

1. Recognizing the great experience possessed by them, as well as historical role they played in establishment and defense of the Ottoman State, the Corps of Janissaries shall not be disbanded/absorbed, but transformed into Guard Regiments, similar in line of guard regiments established by Peter the Great in Russia.

2. Recognizing training and mobilisation capabilities are crucial in the modern warfare, the Ottoman Militia shall be established, as a framework for wider, periodical training of manpower, and run by experienced and accomplished officers. The Militia, if mobilized, shall also be available to act in ensuring domestic security.

3. The Ottoman artillery must be modernized and expanded, in the line and with cooperation of our Prussian ally.

In recognition of His Sacred and Imperial Majesty the Sultan's Christian and Jewish subjects' loyalty and contrubutions to the successfull war efforts, as well as in recognition of a need for deeper reforms across the Empire, it is decided the Jizya shall be abolished and unified tax code instituted within the period of five years. Because of the scale of this change, it cannot be done overnight.
