Nothing significant had changed since the last discussions, so I did not see any need to go through it all again. It seems to me that you wish you could have done what you accuse me of doing, only with a different outcome. There is nothing that makes your opinion more valid than anyone else's, including mine. Also, those instructions could have been carried out during the last turn of last turn chat... And again, take a look at our southern cities. They are all defended by a single unit! We would lose all of them very, very quickly if the Chinese decided to launch an attack within the next few turns. I intend to keep that from happening. The rest of your complaints about the strategies being used do not fall under my jurisdiction, so you are barking up the wrong tree, so to speak.
