Following the successful, bloodless, and seemingly miraculous defense of The Ghosts of Kahah Raitaru in Thebeka on 25.12.YC120, after discussion with those sympathetic to our cause, The Ghosts of Kahah will withdraw from Thebeka. Although the structure stood firm, unbroken, and proudly against the combined might of the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris and Khimi Harar who chose to not engage, I have scheduled the Raitaru to unanchor at an undisclosed time and have further evacuated the secondary and tertiary waves of personnel from the structure.
Additionally, the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris has allowed CONCORD to invalidate the state of war between our organizations. This was done without fanfare nor negotiation. The Ghosts of Kahah accept this informal ceasefire and will respond in kind by ceasing any further military action in Thebeka. Should the Raitaru come under siege during the remaining unanchoring period or if PIE re-initiates the state of war, The Ghosts of Kahah will assume the ceasefire to be null and void and will recommence military action as necessary in self-defense.
This is not a capitulation, as neither demands nor terms were presented conditional to this ceasefire. The totality of this agreement is informal. The Ghosts of Kahah voluntarily withdraw to fight another battle another day, be it in the Kingdom to end its brutal practices or within the Mandate to free our people from the corruption that festers in the Throne Worlds of Holy Amarr.
Diplomacy 101 in the style of Elsebeth Rhiannon:
TL;DR We are withdrawing because we want to, not because you made us. Thanks for the informal ceasefire, here is our informal response: If you shoot at us while we are withdrawing, we will be forced to defend ourselves… again.
