Okay; that said, you can leave it as is.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
((Didn't realize it was such a sore subject. Last time it will be mentioned))
((Afaik expeditionary forces aren't supplied by the owner, but the controller. I guess they've simply enough supplies in Bucuresti.))Would somebody more experienced than me care to share how the Germans in Romania are still in supply? It's irritating to see how long they've lasted (although kudos to the AI for dumping expeditionary forces effectively).
((Can we get Operation Catalyst posted to the main page? I have a hard time finding it in thread...))
Don't worry my fellow Americans; Hitler's tyrannical regime will crumble. He's just on his last legs.

((Any forces allied to the province owner draw supplies from their stockpiles. The supplies are then traded to the province owner. As such, a little playing with the last save shows they don't have a whole lot of supplies, but a crap ton of fuel. All of their units were in good supply at the beginning of the last save, and I imagine things have not gotten very bad for them. I'd recommend logistics bombing if they remain a tough nut to crack. If you destroy all the supplies for, they cannot resupply.))
Senator Ryan,((I didn't see a plan for Belgium or the Netherlands, if it was implied to be part of the plan in place for France, or was mentioned elsewhere then please disregard this))
First I thank you for the opening of these discussion. As responsible commander I suggest to wait with the actual liberation of anyone allied, till Germany surrendered.
That's no affront against our French, Dutch, Belgian and Luxembourgian Friends, that's pure has pure military reasons. While the responsible units doing all they can, our supply situation, has already problems to hold the pace of our advancement. I couldn't imagine how an additional authority in between would alter the situation to the bad. That's nothing bad at our allies, that's normal - the more independent authorities controlling one single things, the more inefficient it gets.
A separate bill for France exists only because the southern part of France and most colonies are controlled by a 'independent' government led by french Marshall Philippe Petain, which is located in the South French town Vichy, therefor it is also called the Vichy-Regime. However, while Vichy is clearly a puppet of Hitler, they claim to be at peace with the allies - at least till today ATLCOM hasn't registered any hostile actions against allied forces from their territory, so the peace claim might be right. The only two problems: first France needs to be united, and second Petain leads an fascistic government there.
Probably Senator Clark was aware of the fact, that ATLCOM couldn't do anything against them since a declaration of war is issued by the senate or the president. I don't think Petain would be so stupid and order his tiny forces to cross into allied held territory (he could kill himself instead, with the same result for his life).
Senators, please keep also the military side on your screen: Yes it would be possible to liberate France, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg right now, however our boys would've a really more easy time with those German bastards if we wait with the restoration of our allies till German surrender.
