The Queen of Louisiana is appalled at how tensions have escalated. Previously it was the Rocky Confederation, now the Midwest Citizens Republic stepping in to claim her promised land! This is the last straw to break the camel's back.
Queen Grace appears on a televised broadcast and reads from paper in her hands.
"Our Louisiana cannot deign having the MCR claiming my birthright. They disgrace our concord with Kanye West! The MCR's biggest insult to our Kingdom is setting up a defensive league on our porch. Who else to fend against? Louisiana, no doubt! The MCR fears the all-encompassing power of the Louisianan royal state, and our endeavor to unite Lower and Upper Louisiana! They fear the unity and strength, integrity of my empire, that is strong as a million men together, the great body-politic of the four corners of this land! They offered a NAP, and then revealed their trepidation; the cowardly dogs! They will trample our land without expecting any thorny bushes, but this won't be with impunity!"
"We see no peaceful future. The conflict with the MCR is inevitable. Their military buildup and expansionism leave no choice. As they move to snatch our rightful land, the MCR claims to defend it--an insult against the integrity of Royal Louisiana! We had lost our armies in defending the just cause of the Plain Indians."
"My armies will invade, and they will knock the MCR down to size--but our intention is to maintain the status quo and secure East Oklahoma as our rightful land! The Louisiana-Rocky Oklahoma split confirms it."
"I re-assure the four corners of the USA, that the Louisianan Royal Army is righteous in their cause. Our counter-invasion aims to knock the MCR down to size and protect our claim to East Oklahoma. Royal Louisiana will not expand into Missouri or landgrab, except for the land that is ours--East Oklahoma!"
The broadcast breaks off abruptly
The Louisianan High Command already starts a mobilization for a counter-offensive, no matter what! Louisianan Royal Army strikes right into the heart of the enemy
Louisiana: 1 army
Mississippi: 2 armies
Arkansas: 3 armies, being sent to invade Missouri
Texas: 0 army
East Oklahoma: 0 army
Using this turn to send 3 armies from Arkansas into Missouri to attack the MCR in retaliation for their plans to invade East Oklahoma. The attack is also to level down their perceived militarization. Louisiana is willing to risk tooth and nail
