That Way MADness Lies

Good evening, my fellow nations.

The Issues Editors, as promised, have maintained the closest surveillance of possible dilemmas that may be of interest to world leaders. Within the past few years, it has become apparent that there are even more intriguing situations that are not adequately covered by a single issue. The purpose of these multi-issue "chains" can be none other than to provide worthy quandaries for testing your nation's resolve. This latest effort was created to challenge those of you who have weapons of mass destruction.

My fellow nations, let no one doubt that this is a difficult and dangerous effort on which we have set out. No one can foresee precisely what course it will take or what costs or casualties will be incurred. However, we do know that dismissing any issue in a chain will forever prevent your nation from ever receiving the chain again. No matter how dire the situation appears, or how close your nation is to annihilation, choosing one of the options will only lead to more issues, not the end of your nation.

The cost of issues is always high, but the great leaders of NationStates have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose is the path of inactivity or ceasing to exist, because the greatest danger of all would be to do nothing.

Thank you and good night.
