    It is the responsibilty of the leader to protect those whom cannot defend themselves, because at one time or another, it was the people who decided that they were the ruler of thier realm...

    According to overheard conversation, the Ottos somehow did stuffs during the French- British War, which directly included the Spanish and Papal States for sure. Ask the sub for definite info though.

    I support anyone who problems the evil Pope. (As opposed to the good Pope...)

    Thanks to Mayi for subbing.

    Well in that war the Ottomans decided to send over roughly 50,000 men to help out the Spanish and French, and whilst seeing all that attrition was wonderful, it really did divert my efforts away from helping Aleksei. He allowed himself to be a pawn of Monkey and Wampbit.

    Or at least that's the Italian propaganda press's view of it.

    What really happened is that it was realised by both parties that a mutual alliance and friendly relations would be most beneficial in the long-term to everyone, particularly when a chance arose to stop the overtly hostile Pope from gaining yet more power. Should you wish James, a continuation of this alliance between the great Mediterranean powers could accomplish grand things indeed.

    I accept but only against the silly Papal State.
    I think Morocco should be able to have part of South America.

    Well... European Waters has officially been dominated as far as I'm concerened, with the northern baltc in Nether, Teutonic, and German control, Atlantic British, maybe French, Spanish, while the Mediterranean is now under Turkish, Italian, Spanish, and I think Morroccian control.

    Before long, there will be no more land conquests... What to do... Imma get awefully bored after I finally settled down from negative BB events and, of course, conquest and settlement of Germany. My newest expansions will have to be without BB gain... Or at least less...

    With the exception of the Baltic all other "waters" you mentioned are under Spanish control. So if you want to cross the Atlantic you better have Spanish blessing. Courtesy of the recent wars Spain was involved in.

    It feels hopeless, trapped by the evil Ottoman mega alliance Only the Warden of the East Zombiemutant stands between me and certain death, but I fear eventually James will achieve his goal of introducing Sharia law in Italy.
