    OOC: As if Doom really cares. By British standards, 15% is more than enough justification for a war of liberation.

    OOC: The UK? You need to win a majority of MPs to be PM. Of course, I guess its possible to not win despite getting the majority of votes, due to third parties and the such, but still.

    OOC: Actually you could win with only 25% of the vote in the UK today with the factor of other parties even less maybe. In this time you could get away with only 10% maybe your still on the Reform act of 1832. Actually to look at it My Chinese National Assembly is Far more Democratic than the British Parliament If slightly Less powerful maybe.

The southern landowners and soldiers will immediately renege on their deal with the slaves and while Mr Lee may attempt to honor his deal without the support of the Army and Landowners will be unable to. I sense a Dutch government in turmoil unable to decide on the fundamental values of there nation.

    Battle of the Argentine Coast


    Soon after war was declared between Argentina and Brazil, the Empire of Brazil enacted a strict Naval blockade, that allowed foreign ships to pass, once they had been inspected of course. Nothing was commandeered for the first month of the blockade, and everything went smoothly, until on August 27th, 1863, the Spanish Armada, 35 ships strong, steamed towards the blockade. The Brazilians, although with a smaller fleet, still demanded to board the three ships the Spanish Armada was escorting. The first two ships had nothing of interest, non-military manufactured goods, grain, and flour, while the third ship help something rather interesting.

    Upon boarding, the Brazilian Admiral demanded he be brought to the Captain's Cabin to see the ships cargo manifest. Once there, he noticed a piece of paper reading "Contrato de Venta - Argentina y España". The intrigued Admiral snatched the paper, and read it in it's entirety.

    Code:
    Contrato de Venta - Argentina y España España se venden sies barcos a la Argentina por el precio de ciento cincuenta kilos de oro británicas. PAGADO (Spain shall sell six warships to Argentina for the price of three hundred British Gold Pounds.) (PAID)
    The Brazilian Admiral demanded to know what this meant, and the enraged Spanish captain had enough of pandering to him and ordered him off his ship, and for the Spanish Armada through to make their delivery. The disgruntled Admiral returned to his ship, and sailed away where the fateful order was shouted, loud enough for even the Spanish ships to hear it.

    FOGO!

    With a roaring thunder, the entire Brazilian Navy opened up on the Spanish Armada, destroying all three Cargo Ships, and severely wounding one frigate. The Spanish Ironclad quickly loaded her guns, spun around, coming broadside with the Brazilian Flagship, and unleashing a torrent of lead and steel into her wooden hulls, crippling her, and putting her at a moral list. Her masts were already torn off and she was taking on water fast, but the Ironclad simply reloaded and fired again, sending the damaged ship to the bottom of the Atlantic. Quickly adding more fuel to her burners, she lurched forward and slammed head on into the wooden hull of the second largest Brazilian warship. From here, Spanish small arms fire started to pick off crew as the Ironclad's guns pummeled the decks. Shifting into reverse, the Ironclad slid out of the ship with a dull thud, leaving the ship to slowly slip under the waves.

    Just as the rest of the Armada began to bring their guns online and dueled with the Brazilian fleet, the Spanish Ironclad, Cataluña, managed to sink yet another ship. The Brazilian Navy, with a total of six ships sunk, ordered the full retreat from the engagement and to return to port in Brazil. The Spanish only lost two ships, not including the three cargo ships. The Spanish Captain, now on board the Cataluña, ordered his fleet to full sail towards Argentina to rearm and refit.

    [-3 Large Ships from Brazil. -3 Small Ships from Brazil. -2 Small Ships from Spain.]


    1. The Spanish Ironclad that destroyed three Brazilian ships.


    Upon arriving in port, the Spanish officially sold the ships to the Argentinians, transferring control of two impressive wooden vessels and four smaller frigates. Word of the Spanish smashing the blockade quickly reverberated through all three countries, and the world. Many in Spain felt a sense of pride once again, the once glorious Spanish Armada once again proved its worth on the high seas. Never, the Spanish felt, that they would bow to a foreign power on the high seas. They once ruled the waves, and if, only for a brief second, they felt like the ruled them once more.

    [+1 Stability to Spain. -2 Large Ships from Spain. -4 Small Ships from Spain. +2 Large Ships to Argentina. +4 Small Ships to Argentina. -£50 from Argentina.]

    His Majesty's Government asks that you all stop this nonsense. This conflict should be left regional lest it escalate to plunge the world back into war.


    OOC: For God sake lads, we've almost finished WW1 and you go and start WW2? Cant you at least stop to think before declaring war on civilised nations?

    It is regretful that much of South America has moved to dive head first into the horrors of war. Based off of reports though it seems an all too common exchange of control over warships was simply attacked and interfered with. Fear and tension grips much of the world and there are seemingly few or no good examples of peace being made without what appears as vast hordes of loot or actual disagreements being solved by negotiations. If Europe shakes its fingers at the rest of the world and commands that others do as they say not as they do, is it a surprise that such is failing?

    OOC: I would bet against Lincoln doing anything about Spain, violation of the Monroe Doctrine or not. If he won't listen to the majority of his people and is willing to get voted out of office in 2 years, why should he worry about Spain interfering in South America and breaking the little bit of International Law the US had established in the Western Hemisphere?

    OOC: The South could surrender and the Brits could stop mucking about with the US if they expect them to enforce the Monroe Doctrine with full force?

    OOC : Well, after some PM talks, it seems that Spain only started producing Ironclads during 1862, unlike the Brazilians, that had that technology by 1861...I haven't seen anything related to Spain suddently building them, so i would ask for an explaination.

    The Confederacy of Guatemala and El Salvador is most worried at this recent development of the volatile situation in South America.
