US Calling on building of new ship yards

Post by Tellos » 09:53:19 Tuesday, 28 June, 2016

Recently in congress a call has gone out to get funding for new ship yards. Despite most of congress being pro british the issues of advisors to mexico and the canadian army on the boarder has resulted in a call by many to raise the US armed forces level of strength fearing attack by canada and by her ally the united kingdom. It is believed later in the year congress will vote on it as part of the annual budgetary talks. Concerns over Britain trying to influence events militarily in the region go against the United States Monroe Doctrine. For now no word yet on how much the bill will get in votes of support but if passed the US might further expand it's armed forces including s many as an additional order of 12 ships to the current order.

opponents however argue such actions would strain relations without due cause and only serve to make talks harder that might resovle the issues such as hoped for talks with Canada regarding the disputes in Alaska. The President has stated he hopes congress will keep a level head and not make a brash decision that thwarts diplomatic efforts to settle the myriad disputes.

Estados Unidos Mexicanos
Although the concern of the United States government is gratefully acknowledged, we assure them that foreign involvement in Mexico does not violate any such policy. As an independent nation, Mexico has chosen to exercise its sovereign right to engage in business with other nations of the world in her domestic, internal business - without threat or duress being imposed, and with mutual benefit for all parties involved. Nor do any agreements made between Mexico and Germany as to military training, or Mexico and Britain as regards to peaceful military agreements, impinge upon Mexican sovereignty, or the territorial integrity of the continent.

If the United States wishes to continue its military projects or its present foreign policy aims, it is of course at its liberty to do so - though we beseech them to make no excuses for such policies on our behalf. We are doing just fine, thank you.

It is a misapprehension for the United States to view these commercial transactions between Great Britain and Mexico as in any way threatening. A trade treaty has been signed, which has allowed the Mexican government to hire the Armstrong Whitworth company to improve infrastructure, including harbours, and including harbour defences, and secure the commercial future of British Honduras - but certainly, we do not see how either of these activities can be seen as in any way aggressive or threatening. Private companies are free to take advantage of favourable commercial opportunities they are offered, of course, and we are certain that the same applies to American companies in their own private dealings around the world. There is, perhaps, at worst, the spirit of friendly commercial competition, of different private companies offering deals and services to tempt customers: that great engine of progress and prosperity which has done so much for civilisation in the last century.

Let us affirm, nevertheless - if any such affirmation was at all necessary - that Britain holds no hostility towards the United States, as, we hope, should be self-evident with our co-operation and peaceable conduct to resolve disputes and solve mutual problems with regard to Canada. We have no aggressive intentions towards any nation, in the Americas or otherwise, and we would hope that free, capitalist enterprise by European companies within the Americas, making fair commercial deals without duress with independent, sovereign nations, is not, now, to be considered a violation of the American Monroe Doctrine. As a brother English-speaking nation and a friend of the United States, we implore the government in Washington not to act hastily out of falsely-percieved threats.

British forming of alliances political and military changes in southern American nations is a blatant slap in the face to the United States and the Monroe doctrine.

As we understand it the Doctrine forbids imperialism, conquest or the expansion of or creation of new colonies by European powers in the Americas. It does not, to our knowledge, prevent sovereign nations in the Americas making free and fair trade deals. As a nation which has, itself, recently, annexed Cuba, the US seems to have little to complain about in this regard. Reinterpret American policy as an aggressive one if must be, but do not claim adherence to a doctrine that does not apply to the situation. We have violated nothing, and bear no hostility or imperial intent to any nation in the Americas. Please do not cast us in the position of aggressor, or even as a problem in any way towards the United States or any other nation in the Americas. We support, and have always supported, the independence and freedom from foreign domination of all the American family of nations.

We have long been friends and brother nations, bound by a common language and related culture and born from the same blood. We fear that the US Congress is stoking hostility, fear and war fever for narrow and temporary political gain, at the cost of throwing away longstanding peace, prosperity, and friendships, both in Europe and elsewhere. Nevertheless, even as we implore the US, as a friend and a fellow English-speaking nation, to step down from the brink of this extreme rhetoric and the implication that American nations may not have their own independent trades and foreign policy, but must be subordinate to the United States, we would, at least, appreciate a clarification of US government policy and doctrine as they presently see it and interpret it, to be genuinely aware of American government opinion, so that it may be taken into account rather than come as a surprise.

Unfortunately the growth of military forces in the region as encouraged by the British requires US shifts to counter this. As such our normal acceptance of British Naval superiority in the world no longer can be deemed a major priority. The doctrine also noted Europe ought not to make attempts as political or military shifts in the region which now force the United States to act. We also note Canada still has troops on our boarder positioned and the British ability to influence that has not yet manifested itself. Congress is responding to pressure from it's constituents and the peoples demand to know it's government will act.

Since any hostile action by the Canadian armed forces will result in very unfortunate and undesired consequences the US government cannot treat this as a minor issue. We are attempting to work with the British on the matter but if Canada does not agree to the proposal the UK has offered to settle that particular issue congress will have to consider it's options.

As a country that holds no colonial possessions in the Americas, Germany is awestruck that the United States would use the agreements made with the sovereign Mexican government as reason to start an arms race, and create tensions in the region.

There has not been any unlawful intent by Germany, or other European nations, so far as we can see, in regards to agreements made in Mexico. The Mexican government reached out to various heads of diffrent fields because they wanted the very best that they could afford for their people. In essence, the Mexican government is following its own destiny, a destiny that the US government swore to protect, not impede on.

American actions in Cuba are a case in point. Cuba is a nation that has long desired independance from Spain, and it looked like they'd acquire that freedom after being liberated in the Spanish-American war. However, for some reason, the US government went against everything it promised with the Monroe doctrine and annexed Cuba. Yet the US has the audacity to demonize European agreements that would be in the best interest of the destiny of a Free Latin America? Germany finds the hypocrisy rampant in current US politics, and wonders just how long it'll take the American people to realize their government is leading them down a dangerous path.
