The DoEA is pleased to announce the death of Anwar al-Awlaki.  This represents the death of the last of te three major leaders in Islamic terrorism.  While the war is not won, this is a major step forward.

I'm still here, baby!  I look forward to presenting myself for a fourth time to the Senate for what will be hearings filled with fun, games, and Napoleon's ranting!

The position of GTO Ambassador is an important one - the GTO Ambassador is the chief adviser to the Secretary of External Affairs, and represents Atlasia globally.  Therefore, it is with pride that I request that Yelnoc be the next GTO Ambassador, and that he be confirmed as soon as possible.

Very interesting and detailed- I've sponsored this for approval... I am very interested in the Israel Palestine conflict and wonder if it would be better to treat West Bank and Gaza as separate entities in something like this? I know the West Bank should definitely be categorized "Normal" but I am not sure if we should welcome exchange of military hardware with the Hamas in Gaza...

For now, neither Gaza or the West Bank are recognized nations separate from Israel; if you wish to push that legislation, you can.  Regarding Gaza, we could put full military restrictions on the nation - it isn't complicated at that point.

And Senator, thanks for the sponsorship and feel free to contact me on other FoPo issues.

SoEA Ben,

Your presence is immediately insisted upon in the Afghan Women's Bill debate. Please make haste to respond to any and all inquiries still outstanding. Failure to respond my result in dreadfully dire consequences.

Also, does that FPR require a slot to be brought to the floor?

I believe it does; I remember there being a foreign policy slot, although it may be filled/never passed into law.

What about the concerns regarding the issue of human trafficking/sex slavery particularly in Eastern Europe and South Asia, specifically in Thailand. Why should Israel make more concessions to get peace?

Also what about the status of Spain?
