Hint: Thanks to the Atlasian recognition of Somaliland it is COMPLETELY STABLE Grin

Something is coming down the pipeline, but I'm having so much fun with Colombia right now, especially bringing back the GTO.

Yup, I am very much enjoying having something to respond to day to day on.

Wow I honestly thought it was like the only person who used the term "ruskis".  In fact, I actually didn't know anyone outside my friends even heard of that word.  God I am so stupid sometimes Tongue

Its in the Michael Moore film, Canadian Bacon, I beleive.

Never seen a Michael Moore film actually.  And Canadian bacon is not very good.

Foreign News

Added Forces Fail To Deter Pirates
Despite recent Senate measures to combat piracy off the coast of Somalia, a steady flow of international ships have been hijacked in the Gulf of Aden.

Despite the best efforts of Somalia’s Transitional Federal President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, violence and unrest in the largely lawless state have plagued the government and prevented meaningful gains against the pirate groups. The situation has only been exacerbated as well-armed militias continue to fight in the streets of Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital.

Most tellingly, a group of pirates hijacked a Chinese vessel Sunday over 700 miles away from shore. This example is only one of a number of recent cases of piracy over 500 miles from a coast, perhaps indicating that Somali pirates are becoming more sophisticated, as well as broadening their reach.

It is not yet clear how policy makers will seek to remedy the situation. Many governments have simply opted to pay the ransoms, rather than commit extensive resources to prevention. Others have proposed allowing the crews of these vessels to arm themselves for defense; however, many question whether this could lead to the unnecessary death of crews and an increased militancy among pirates.


I would advise the SoEA to consult with EU partners. The EU has a sizable effort underway to counter piracy actions in the area. Consideration might be given as to what support Atlasia can provide that would aid 'Operation Atalanta'.

I will first have to discuss it with the president but I think that is an excellent idea.

I plan on introducing legislation to review Atlasia's committment to foreign aid, and I hope to stimulate some discussion of foreign issues in the Senate.

If you need any aid in regard to this just let me know.
