"Gentlemen, friends. I stand today in front of you to address the insults thrown at us by the Arabs, the insults of throwing our merchants out for no good reason at all!

You may have heard many different things, however I shall give you the truth I witnessed with my very own eyes!

The people of Arabia have been buying many things from us, and we happily supplied and sold them. We helped them to recover and rebuild, we even paid reparations for the sack of Mecca. And when we began to sell opium to them they didn't object. However did we force them to buy it? Of course not!

And as time passed more and more people demanded it. So of course we couldn't say no to them. After all if we have the supply why not fulfil the demand? And their governments allowed it! They did nothing! Not a single objection was heard, and the trade continued peacefully.

But some time ago trouble began to brew. Hispanian trade posts were raided, the goods sold by our merchants stolen and burned, our people slain. But we didn't stop trading. We ensured that proper measures are taken, guards hired. However that didn't prove enough and the attacks continued! Attacks on Hispanian merchants! And now, when the Emperor himself asked the rulers of Arabia to allow even more troops to be stationed there, and the culprits found and punished to secure the trade depots we are thrown out! If this is not an insult to our nation, then I don't know what else is.

So I ask you all for some kind of intervention, be it an ultimatum or if need by a military campaign! We cannot allow this deed to go unpunished! We must open the ports of Arabia, or our trade income will suffer. That's not a possibility, that is a fact. A large portion of Hispanian income came from the Arabian trade. And with that market closed for Hispanian merchants goods will rot in storehouses with nowhere to be sold. So once again I ask you: Intervene in Arabia for the good of our trade Empire, for the good of Hispanian people!"

Carta Asiatica

written by Garcia Manuel Alferreda (Synonym for Gaspar Melchor)

((This is a "stolen" idea. Jóse Cadalso invented this kind of book: two fictional persons, a morrocan diplomat and his friends are writing letters to each other, where the morrocan criticises the spanish society. As we dont have Morocco anymore it will be a persian diplomat))

Dear Friend,
since I visited Spain the first time, I wondered how you do Politics. Some men, sitting in a assembly, discussing about the nations well being. It's a great idea to give the people a voice, to let them shout out their problems. But then... why do you give this power into the hands of nobles and men who want to sustain their power? The assembly is a farce, the mass of the people having a seat there aren't even independent, as they say. Influenced by the Empress and her fellows, the Arcbishop, the Marshal,... The smallest part of the assembly is a big threat to the Empress. Monsieur Faixon seems to be such a threat. Some members of the Los Campos Faction. Segnor von Poelitz. Even Monsieur Cibran Arceo doesn't seem to attack the Empress, as he did in the past? And why do you do nothing about it? Please explain it to me
Ali-Ben-Jafra

((So, that it's clear: The friends who are part of this "Conversation" are fictional. These "letters" had been published by the Correo Madrid in the real history, and I'll follow this example))

It seems that once again France sees fit to strike at a hated for. And once again that Hispania joins in this war against a mutual enemy.

Don't take this as disapproval, quite the opposite truly. But as Chancellor I feel that I must inform you that my Emperor and Hispania has interests in Austrian territory as well.

In particular, the Mediterranean coastline in the Adriatic and the rightful Bavarian land unjustly held by the enemy.

If I were able to present to his Imperial Majesty that France recognizes these and is willing to allow us to gain them in the war, it would a trivial matter to convince him to honor the alliance.

Hispania remembers the Phoenix War and the Ally who stood by us, and the one who didn't. But Hispania's grievances and interests needs to be respected as well.

CqtOYoW.png

We, of course, recognize the claims of Hispania to the Adriatic coast of Italy. It would not do for France to antagonize her enemies, and we would not deign to take territory vital to our greatest ally. And while Hispania's claims to parts of Italy are based on strategic interests, as are our own on western Austria, we also recognize that Austria holds rightful Bavarian land stolen in the past, and it would be a great disservice for that land to be granted to anyone but its rightful owner. His Majesty and his government pledges that if Hispania joins our cause, you will not be slighted and see such land fall into the wrong hands.

However, I believe it must be expressed that there are multiple interests at play here. It would be an insult to our other allies if Hispania received the entire Italian coastline and they in turn received a pittance. Thus while His Majesty and I recognize that Hispania has a claim to the Italian coast, we cannot guarantee it in its entirety. A portion of it, though, is better than nothing at all. Once Austria is in the throes of defeat, we shall include in the peace terms that the coast up to and including Venice be granted to Hispania. Bavaria will receive its lost lands as well. I believe that to seek any more for Hispania will prevent our other honoured allies from receiving their due share, seeing as Germany desires a land connection to their sole Bohemian province and Scandinavia desires Lithuanian land. All shall benefit from this war and Austria will rue the day they betrayed our trust.

- Chancellor of France

That will prove acceptable. As long as our interests are acknowledged, respected, and fulfilled to a certain extent, Hispania will have no reason to not honor its alliance.

May our Armies be victorious.

((As the negotiation is now over, this little deal is now considered to be public knowledge by Parliament. The Operational Security Act only covers ongoing negotiations.))

As Chancellor of Hispania, I demand an explanation for the violent treatment of our merchants in your countries.

As Chancellor of Hispania, I demand an explanation for the violent treatment of our merchants in your countries.

If you do not know the reason, you are more ignorant than we had even conceived. Your merchants have been selling the dangerous and addictive substance known as opium to our people for decades, full well knowing the negative effect it would have. We have tried to curb the trade of opium, confiscating what we could find and punishing those found using it, even going so far as to outright ban it and outlaw the sale of the product. Despite our efforts, your merchants continue to dispense it to our people in all their greed, and thus we have been forced to take action. Unless you bring an end to the opium trade in Arabia, we refuse to admit any Hispanian merchants into our nation. If Hispania cannot trade with us in a way that shows us proper respect, then we shall not trade with you at all.

((Howdy All, I am very excited to be joining ya'll even though I'm late in the thread. I've skimmed through the most recent history and am now to IAARs so forgive me for any infractions.))

Bio:
Name: Altair Spoleto
Date of Birth: August 17, 1760
Class: Noble
House: The Cortes
Faction: Independent(For now)
Religion: Catholic
Bio: Altair is the eldest son in the Spoleto dynasty, his father the Count of Cremona, has recently taken ill and has vacated his seat in favor of his son. The Spoleto line has long been strong supporters of the merchant class and was granted the countship following the house's support of the crown's actions in Italy, prior to the annexation of Cremona. Altair is now arriving to the court seeking to uphold his father's reputation as a just and wise member of the Cortes. However, he is largley ignorant of the intrigues of politics, and will have much to learn lest he make a fool of himself and his dynasty. While for now he only occupies his father's seat, it is clear to all that as his Fathers heir it will only be a matter of time before he assumes the title of count in his own right.

Why did the emperor not care for such an oversight?

Liu watched the sunset melding with the city of Canton. Not just figuratively; the city was in flames. Delhi's ancestral hatred for Ming had proved too much. If only there was a garrison there...

No matter. His home was burned, but his allegiance almost never wavered...

For once, I do agree with a call to war. And I must accept another.

Monsieur de Saint-Pierre is entirely right when he said that it was the free decision of the Arabs to trade with us in exchange for opium. We were in no way endebted to them, sack of Mecca or not, after having rebuilt their 'holy' city. Hispania, even though that ideal stops at the doors of the government, has always encouraged free thought, the free decision.

And remember that Hispanians have been attacked! Each citizen of Hispania stands under the protection of His Imperial Highness, and the violent repulsion of our merchants is a challenge of this protection. This is not a simple case of protectionism. If half of what Saint-Pierre says is true, then the Arabs launched an attack on Hispanians who broke no law, a provocation, and Hispania has to intervene to uphold the security of any Hispanian abroad - for what would happen if we leave these raids unpunished?

Though I do doubt that a majority of the trade income comes from the sparsely populated Arabia. It is not Europe, Cathay or India, and the last one has enough trouble recovering from a damaging war... Which is still also costly for Hispania even if the casualty rate is 5.7:1. Nearly one hundred thousand Hispanians fallen, in a land far away from home! That blood toll is high and will be felt for many years. And if you take the many surrenders into consideration, the rate is hardly the same. One Hispanian is not worth six Indians, even if that fits perfectly into the mouths of the Imperial snakes. The truth is that our technological superiority, brought by our encouragement of free thought, made us win and the Indians often surrender.

We have to punish the Arabs, be it through an ultimatum or a punitive expedition! And Austria... France called for the support of its ally, and this call shall of course be honoured. Unlike towards its people, Hispania does keep its diplomatic promises. One of the two will have to change.

But the call shall not be honoured with this pathetic excuse of a negotiation standing at the beginning. 'The Mediterranean coastline and rightful Bavarian land'. This is bound to cause a crisis, even if the French have in the past proven to be trustworthy! We all know how vague the second definition is. Haven't the Greeks continuously demanded the return of 'rightful land' on which no Greek had stood for centuries? How much tension did this cause? Isn't Paris itself 'rightful Roman land'? Depending on how ambitious and well-informed the Bavarians are, they could claim half of Austria as their 'rightful land'!

And Bavaria is still Bavaria! We are the Hispanian Assembly, and the Empress Dowager is the Hispanian Chancellor, against all resistance. Bavaria is a constitutional monarchy. Alfons may be their Duke, but he doesn't have the same rights in Bavaria as he has here - if he still makes any decision himself, which I have come to doubt. When did we last hear something else from our monarch than the usual government declarations? When his own reforms failed! No, you cannot control the Bavarians as you do the emperor, as you do Hispania! They must negotiate for themselves, decide for themselves if they wish to enter the war, for what is the law in Hispania isn't the law in Bavaria!

No, if there has to be a war, then there have to be clear demands avoiding future conflict, and respect for the Bavarian autonomy!

I would firstly like to thank you all for the warm welcome I have received in these chambers over the last few days. My father asked for me to convey to you all his thanks for the gifts and letters he has received from members of this assembly. I fervently pray for his swift recovery, and I would ask you all to remember him in your own prayers.

However, though I do hope and pray for my father's swift recovery I do not intend for my time in these halls to be idle. I encourage you all to bring matters before me that you deem of importance. While I am new to the politics of our great empire at large, I have gained much experience in working with the local administrators across Northern Italy, and I intend to work ferociously in becoming knowledgeable of the events across the empire as a whole. This brings me to my next point: The Austria Question.

As many of you who are familiar with my father know, my father fought valiantly on the side of the crown in the civil war that so recently split our nation. While many of the populace originally supported the Phoenixes our family proudly stood by the crown. Following the faction's bribery of the Austrian crown our sovereign lands we were able to rally many of the Northern Italian provinces behind the crown.

This diplomacy turned out to be naught but a moral victory, Austrian troops swarmed into northern Italy causing havoc among the territories that refused to betray the crown. For the rebels, the Austrians had been bought and paid for, the Phoenixes cared not a bit for their brothers and sisters in Italy. My Father and the Imperial supporters he could convince to follow him fled to France. Him and several members of our house guard proved their worth in the battle of Savoie, turning back the Austrian army.

He then followed the French forces to Draguignan, where he led a valiant attack against General Blanco's left flank exposing the Phoenix artillery. However, when my father returned home after the war our estate had been put to the torch. The vile Austrians had taken everything of value and burnt down the centuries old manor in revenge for the damages done to them during the war.

While the provinces were returned to the empire in the peace, the memory of the atrocities committed by the Austrians are still fresh in the memory of many living in Northern Italy. My father always spoke to this council of his distrust of the Austrians. And I ask all of you to remember these deeds when considering if it is right for us to wage war against the Austrians. I was very pleased to hear of the Empress Dowagers negotiations with the French regarding this situation.

I fully support any and all actions by this great nation against the tyranny of the Austrians. They have been left to fester in central Europe for too long, it is well past time that we work with our true Allies in France, and our new friends in Bavaria to protect our lands. I envision one day a Mediterranean fully secured by our great empire, and the evil empire of Austria stands in our way.

The way forward for our merchants, our allies, and our people, all lie in securing rightfully Hispanian interests in northern Italy. While I hope and pray that war will never again befall our homelands, that is a risk that myself, my family, and the people of Cremona are willing to incur to put to end the Austrian threat for good. I hope that the other members of the empire will find it in themselves to support my vision.


Ad Coronam,
Altair Spoleto
Heir to the County of Cremona

((Ministers Plan.

Join war with France against Austria (may be part of our vote but if it's a split vote or really close, it would make sense to have a backup.)

After the war is over and we have armies that do not need to fight anymore, war with Yemen to forcibly open the borders to trade and to take the city of Aden.
))

I believe that the Bavarian Parliament will not mind that I negotiated on their behalf. In fact, should the Emperor permit, I will personally write a letter to them to inform them of my actions and we will see how they feel.

((Assume the Bavarians get told if you like Mike.))

*A visibly tired and gently wheezing Arceo rises to speak*

"Once again, the Empress Dowager is pushing for our involvement in another French-initiated war. This is especially disturbing as it *cough* comes so soon after our involvement in another conflict. The French are clearly abusing our relationship to aid in their efforts to destabilize the European balance of power. I believe we made it clear that we did not approve of France's attack on the Austrians in the first instance, and thus must administer a punishment upon them in the form of our non-intervention in the war, or even perhaps an intervention on the opposing side in the defense of the European order."

Do you truly expect a loyal Hispanian to support a nation that betrayed us in the Phoenix War?

Do you truly expect a diplomat to allow the influence we have gained with the Valois, our greatest Ally who is the only nation in Europe with a connection with the Iberian heartland, wither after centuries of mutual support?

Do you truly expect a mother to stand by an allow another nation to humiliate and insult her daughter?
