I see quite a lot of people began making an issue of Imperial policy, even trying to blame them in a violation of law. As far as I am aware, Imperial enslaving policy allows enslaving only criminals and prisoners of war, and considering the raid will be taking place in the territory of the enemy, it’s quite obvious their targets are those who attack Empire. And thus to all these “petitioners” I would like to say one thing: if you don’t want to be enslaved, don’t attack the Empire!
It’s understandable when Imperials discuss their internal politics, but in these threads I also saw such terrible people as traitors who ran to Federation tuning in. A lot of people look to be outraged by Lord Sarum’s intentions. But where were these people when Gallente are torturing Caldari prisoners of war, starve and beat them? What is going on, if Amarr take prisoners of war and force them to labor, it causes them to cry out loud and plead to CONCORD, but when Gallente torture prisoners of war, they just close their eyes on that? How much did the Federation pay to these terrible people so they consider force labor worse than rape, starvation and tortures?..
SHAME TO THESE PEOPLE! Shame! Shame for their disgrace, inhuman cruelty and hypocrisy! Shame!
With that, I would like to publically emphasize SUPPORT to Lord Sarum’s actions, unless these orders will be cancelled by a higher authority either in Empire, State or CONCORD.
But until that happens, I call every capable pilot to SUPPORT Amarr Empire and its official position and protect it from Minmatar invaders!
Glory to the State!
