Greetings brothers, sisters and friends as well as slavers and foreigners!
Today the system of Aset was liberated by forces of the Minmatar militita. It was the hardest fought over system and its fall marks in all likelyhood the end of the major engagements in this area. The constellation is free once again.
This means that the supply lines of the amarrian troops on Floseswin IV will slowly but surely dry out and their defeat (and if it was up to me death) is a matter of time.
While a few systems within the warzone remain in amarrian hands the vast majority of systems are firmly held by the Matari. Our forces are preparing the liberation of those last systems and while we expect stiff resistence we are confident that it is again a matter of time until we will have driven them out completely.
So after the members of the Minmatar militia have paid in sweat and blood my question goes out to the Republic:
Will the Republic continue to stand idly by? Will it continue to negotiate with the slavers from a position of fear and weakness or will it finaly wake up and prove that it is not only Minmatar by name but also in spirit?
Now would be the time to show strenght. To show the Empire that what they started is a game that they can´t win. It is not them that controll the space in the warzone but the Matari. If they think it is fair game to attack planets within the warzone we should give them a reason to think again!
By standing by and negotiating over the hostages that the slavers took the Republic is not only weakening their position against them. It is also endangering all Matari as the slavers will learn that they just need to be aggressive and take hostages to reach a favourable agreement.
We must show them that their action will have dire consequences.
While I still have hope that they will wake up we will not restrain ourselfs any longer. If the Republic is not willing to stand up for the Matari the Matari within the Republic will.
The Ushra‘Khan will deploy more troops onto the planet of Floseswin IV. We will also start punitive actions against the slavers in the warzone and their own space. We will be the consequence.
