    Fellow members of the Assembly (that's you too, Nobody!), we've been discussing a possible war with Mongolia. It's time now for you to make your decision - should we go to war with them, or not?

    The discussion on this is in this thread.

    Options:
    • Yes, go to war with Mongol this term
    • No, do NOT go to war with Mongol this term
    • Abstain (I have no preference)
    This poll will grant authority to the Secretaries of War and State, acting together, to declare War on the Mongols. Prior to any such discussion, the Secretary of War must present, for approval by the Assembly, their plans and timetable for the War as a Referendum.

    This grant of authority will extend only for War with the Mongols, and will expire at the end of this term.

    This is a public poll, and will run for 3 days. The option with the most votes will be used.

    Yes, I think we should go to war. There is nothing to lose, unless we horrificly under estimated mongolia.

    BTW. it would sound more dramatic if it was "i ask the assembley to delcare a state of war with Mogolie." ;) lol

    Do we have any army at all? Right now it feels like we will just be humiliated. In the future it seems more plausible, but not now.

    Shouldn't this be an initiative?

    That's an interesting way to word the followup question on when and how. However, it does let those who are worried about our current strength to feel comfortable that we won't proceed until ready. ;)

    Not sure, but I think it can go either way (Assembly declares war, Censor is head of Assembly - toss up!)
    That was the idea - let's make sure that the people WANT the war, and give permission to various leaders to push on for the war. Add the check that plans need to be approved, and the Assembly still gets final say on things!

    I think we should give wishy-washy approval to go to war. That way, if there are any problems with the war we can moan and complain that the SoS and SoW lied about the war and dragged us into a war we didn't want to fight.

    This poll is Validated.

    The Assembly has now authorized the Secretaries of War and State to declare war at a time of their choosing so long as the SoW presents his plans for the war to the Assembly for approval prior to the declaration. This authority ends with this term.
