Strength and Honor 1 - R. M. Meluch

" The Imperial Government of Rome establishes the following facts:

Although Rome on her part has strictly adhered to the rules of international
law in her relations with the United States during every period of the recent
Emergency in the common defense against the Hive, the Government of the
United States has used the Emergency to abridge the right of Rome to its
own government, and continues to usurp the lawful authority of Rome over
her own armed forces under pretext of a common defense against a threat
that has been diminished to inconsequence in order to perpetuate oppression
and to enforce a treaty coerced under most extreme circumstances.
The United States violates Roman borders at will, and denies Rome the autonomy
and security to which every nation is entitled, in actions consistent with
an organized crime racket rather than a civilized nation.
Pledges extracted upon threat of being fed to monsters cannot be bound by law.
The Government of the United States has thereby virtually created a state of war.

The Imperial Government of Rome, consequently, discontinues
diplomatic relations with the United States of America and declares
that Rome considers herself as being in a state of war with
the United States of America."
