The comments in the MIA newspaper thread does raise an interesting question. For those who are blind to what has occured ... Nuts established an embassy on MIA. From MIA's perspective this was a hostile act ... it's only purpose to benefit the KISS/Nut alliance with the ability to peak at our cities and to steal technology. The only way to neuter an ambassy is to declare war. MIA stated this in a letter ... and also stated that we would not use this to begin open hostilities. Therefore our treaty of non-agression is still valid from our perspective. I'd ask the other teams ... how would you react differently? I'd also like to add, that if anyone feels that we are not playing the game in a fair manner ... please let your feelings be known ... because above all this is a game and we should all be enjoying the experience win or lose.
