In your opinion, what is the most pressing foreign policy concern facing Atlasia at the present time?

I'm torn between the collapse of the Eurozone, which could plunge the world into a significant financial crisis, and the potential for a nuclear Iran.

Senator, I don't have a clear answer, because I have no solid guidelines.  When I think there is a clear justification - be it defense of the homeland, defending an ally, or a chance to truly improve the world, I will recommend military action.

Are you concerned the EU may collapse if the UK decides to leave it? Will we likely see other countries following suit in the near future?

IF the UK leaves the EU, we will have problems.  It is my hope, though, that the UK will stay put.

We need to get this underway, Ben is very busy. He has to go bomb err, serve the country's interests.


A vote is now open to reconfirm Ben to be Secretary of External Affairs (I just realized I probably messed up Homelys. Tongue), please vote Aye, Nay or Abstain.

What actions should Atlasia take to prevent a nuclear Iran, if any? Isn't one of the reasons they are pursuing nuclear weapons due to our habit of bombing countries in their neighborhood?

Ideally, some sort of diplomatic agreement could be reached.  I am not ruling out military action, but I am not advocating it right now.  I also believe that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons to achieve its own destructive foreign policy goals, such as the annihilation of Israel and the establishment of Iranian hegemony in the region.  I do not  believe we are at fault.
