    Science
    US Army researchers made a significant breakthrough in the field of Artillery. New designs for guns are being developped, and new divisions trained in the use of them.
    Citizens in many coastal cities have witnessed the installement off new batteries to defend the shores, and the testing of the high calibre Guns have caused both unrest as well as cheering crowds. The new facilities will be fully operational next month. The gunboats of the US coast guard have been largely disbanded, and their armour and guns have been melted to provide the metal needed for the coastal defenses. The US is now completely save from sea-borne raiders.
    The US Navy will operate further out on the oceans, now that their defensive role has been replaced by these shore-batteries, and it will now concentrate on escorting commercial vessels.

    Economy
    Trade with Japan has proven to be most profitable, with the finest US-coal being delivered to Tokyo, and Machinery to Fukuoka.
    The US government is pleased to see that Japan will also adopt the Republican principles so strongly advocated by us. Japan is invited to contact the US if assistence is needed by their researchers.

    Coast Guard
    An official warning goes out to Russia: A Russian vessel has been blocking shipping routes to and from Boston, seriously disrupting domestic traffic.
    Russian goods entering the US will have to pay a 20% import-tax in the future.

    Militairy
    All quiet in Mexico. Reinforcements are under way to Veracruz.

    US vessels have been harassed in the Pacific by pirates originating from Honolulu. Two escorting Warships are now blocking the port, and Troops are underway to capture the city.

    Well, then you will lose some of your most profitable trade routes. :p Not one Russian freight unit will enter any American city, and furthermore a 30% tax has been placed on American goods in response. If you ever took even a highschool-level economics class you would know tariffs help no one.

    BTW, how come there isn't at least a reprimand for the French ships adding to the problem? Russian ships did arrive second, but I would think that France would at least be reminded not to end her ships' turns in vital areas.

    Don't you worry about the French. There is a hotline between Washington and Paris. I can assure you it is being used to prevent disruption of domestic US traffic, both at sea as well as on the roads bound inland as well.:p

    But these aren't just French affairs; your ending a turn next to a port contributed to the problem. If only one of us and not the other had made the mistake, then this wouldn't have happened, so I find France at least partially reponsible. That makes your business our business, in this case anyway.

    Darius, i thought that we had solved that problem.
    Do you want to discuss about it again?

    I don´t want to be rude, but sometimes you look like a maniac
    ;) Please, relax. It´s just a game. :)

    I'm not mad at all, just thought I'd catch him as a hypocrite for fun. :) I'm probably happier with this situation anyway; now I can make my allies rich instead of an adversary, probably better in the long run.

    Nothing to report.

    Speaking as someone who's 3 exams away from an economics degree, I resent that comment :p
