~07:14 PM UTC @Turkey

I would second Egypt's message insofar as avoiding any engagement with me
~07:14 PM UTC Spain, do you want to support me into Algeria to force the Egyptians out? If he retreats to Western Sahara, he only threatens my lands, if he retreats to Libya, I’ll return to Morocco and let you two continue your relationship
~07:14 PM UTC I see now there are 23 minutes remaining when I sent that, I’m submitting an order to move to Algeria
~08:22 PM UTC @England - I would be cautious dealing with Spain. Even if you fulfill every promise you make to Spain and let it walk into supply centers it could otherwise not take, it will find some pretense for shirking its obligations. These kind of countries cannot be dealt with diplomatically.
~08:22 PM UTC Why does it have to find a pretense to shirk that obligation?

There is most definitely a world in which England and Spain can work together, especially as they both have their backs to the West and can sweep East as one force...
~08:22 PM UTC @Turkey - Thank you. If you need a favor, just ask.
~08:22 PM UTC @Poland - I can only judge Spain on its actions, and it seems to look for ways to justify its failure to honor a bargain.
~08:22 PM UTC Hell, you know I am cool with y'all slugging it out in the Med. I am in the middle of a brewing conflict with Germany and Russia myself.

All I ask is that you all leave little old Poland out of it and work on your grievances as true leaders would do!
~08:22 PM UTC @russia. If I am to move north, we should find a way to ensure that we cooperate to make mutual gains. I moved Iraq to Armenia only for defensive purposes. I will retreat if we can agree on other mutually beneficial plans
~08:22 PM UTC @russia. Perhaps you could support me into the western Black Sea?
~08:22 PM UTC Honestly, Egypt, I have to side with Spain on this. Your move to Algeria frightens me and it would frighten me more if I was in Spain's position. Despite your supposed intent to go after Naples, it's possible you're positioning yourself to take Tunis. As of right now, you're in prime position to take it.
~09:30 PM UTC @Egypt, I am not an it and don't you dare call me that again, understood?
~09:30 PM UTC @Britain, I am sorry, I was busy travelling and out of internet connection when all this went down
~09:30 PM UTC @Turkey, I would just like to point out that if Egypt sweeps the western med and you are locked in with a bunch of armies, he could easily come back and sweep the eastern med without you being able to fight back. That number of fleets will be very cumbersome to get around Iberia
~09:30 PM UTC And almost every single one of your territories would be directly threatened
~09:30 PM UTC @Spain - No offense intended with my use of pronouns. I don't know any of the players' genders, and I prefer not to make assumptions. My common practice has been to refer to other players as countries and when that gets repetitive to use the pronoun "it" (again referring to the country not the player). If you tell me how you would like to be addressed, I'll do my best to accommodate you.
~10:38 PM UTC @Turkey

Honestly I am fine with the Armenian army as long as you don't attack me - I'll move into Kazakhstan just to put it under my color - if an army is in Iran at that time, all the better.

As for the Western Black Sea, that was why I originally asked you if you had any plans there - I was intending to support you into there.

As for your Northern plans - I am sure we can do that, but it will require you to either move northwest or directly conflict with me. For mutual gains, however, it will require mutual effort for conquering; mutual coop will be necessary especially now that Poland's south frontier and your northwestern frontier border the same territories, which I lay no claim to. However, your strategy doesn't have to be exclusively just North, because there are a lot more nations above you than there are below you, which means I probably am not the only nation you'll have to treat with eventually.

I'll be supporting you into the Western black Sea
~10:38 PM UTC @Poland -

Could you leverage the Baltic fleet against Germany in some future support move or bounce? I can't exactly move through you, but since we are actually cooperating with each other, I would assume we have better relations than those implied by that of Germany's non-aggression towards you

@Germany

You have one
~10:38 PM UTC chance to move out of Sweden, and if that is done, I would consider a peaceful solution to these affairs
~10:38 PM UTC through negotiation perhaps?
