The rest of your opening statement is asinine so I’ll ignore it. But to this point, you acknowledge that you interjected into an address that wasn’t to you specifically so you could spout pro-State rhetoric. Yes, you’re a lapdog. Embrace it.
You mean the criminal stronghold and pirate haven governed by crime families which has been recognized as little more than a ‘safe place’ for black market activity and outlaws by every major political body in the cluster and has absolutely no relevance to this discussion because it’s about the people of the Placid region and they’re separate and distinct?
It’s actually painful to me that the CEP is so determined to be in opposition to the Federation that it would throw its lot in with the Serpentis, Angel Cartel and Guristas just to spite it; says more about the character of your leadership than mine.
Sorry to disappoint the senator but the Federation doesn’t require the approval of a member state to construct a stargate in a system connecting two of its own territories so this is yet another completely invalid point you’ve interjected into this address.
The Intaki Assembly is the federally-recognized autonomous authority of the Intaki member state and is recognized as having the authority speak for and act on behalf of the inhabitants of that member state. Should it decide to cast that aside and sign itself over to the Syndicate and/or CEP, it would be violating the purpose for its existence and voiding the federal charter granting it autonomy in the first place.
Going into further detail would take a significant amount of time and more space than we have here and isn’t the purpose of this address to begin with.
No it didn’t, no matter how you try to spin it. The President of the Federation acted within her legal authority to mobilize the Federal Navy in response to a perceived threat to human life or Federal sovereignty. What happens next is a matter of deliberation and discourse between the impacted member state(s) and the Federal Government which is going to take time to be finalized and ratified. Failing that, eventually the cited threat will either be nullified or the security council and/or people of the Federation will countermand the President’s actions. Until such a time, the President has the authority to establish and maintain a naval presence in the area.
Whether it was the moral or ethical thing to do, how long the autonomy of President in this matter remains and how much of a threat this may be to the Federation’s internal structure and integrity are matters for the Federal Government, the member states and their elected representatives to debate and determine.
It most certainly was.
Precisely why it’s none of your business. War isn’t being discussed in this address, it was written to a member state of the Federation on an open forum for easier viewing by those within the region because the Federation doesn’t censor GalNet so it was the simplest and most efficient way to address the people of Placid.
