There is nothing savage about my forces. They are trained professionals, not mindless berserkers. If these slaves prefer to die on their feet, then my forces will oblige them. As an ethnic Caldari, raised in the State, I respect that. The Caldari tradition is filled with instances of ‘the deathride’ exemplified by Admiral Tovil-Toba. My troops are Sarumites; they will respect that. We will still kill them, mind you, because that is what we are obligated to do, but we will respect our enemies.
There will be no indiscriminate artillery or orbital strikes for two reasons. The first is that such strikes are ineffective at the rapid, effective elimination of enemy personnel. Secondly, as I have said elsewhere, these slaves are pawns, being manipulated by the Blooders for some nefarious orgy of blood and death; we will only target those that we have to, not whole slave populations. We of Holy Amarr have an obligation to reclaim the heavens, and we intend to do just that. It’s hard to reclaim that which is ash.
THOSE SLAVES NOT RESISTING ARE JUST AS MUCH OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT AS IMPERIAL SUBJECTS.
We look not just to quell this uprising, but to lay the groundwork to prevent more from occurring in the future. To loyal subjects and faithful slaves we will be no better friend. To those that seek to harm Holy Amarr, who have turned from the Light of God, we will be no worse enemy.
I can further announce that forces under Lady Newelle will be deploying in division strength. All further information on units is classified for OPSEC reasons. As far as the regimental structure of our units, Ms. Del’thul, I don’t go messing with the TOE for every operation.
