From: New Colchis
PRESS RELEASE: An apocalyptic warning
From : King Magnus VII of New Colchis from the Royal Palace of Croman on New Colchis
Distributed to: All Embassies of foreign powers, and all local and interstellar news services on New Colchis.
In view of the present tense political situation I feel it is incumbent upon me to issue the following warning to all the starfaring nations of the Islands Clusters:
Though we of New Colchis are a peace loving people, anyone of any intelligence can see that in the event of war the possibility exists of New Colchis being bombarded from Space by nuclear or meson weapons. Let it be known that in the event of large scale bombardment by an enemy force with nuclear or meson weapons, orders will be given to the fleet to render the homeworld of the nation responsible and its allies uninhabitable to man. No expense will be spared to carry out these orders, and they cannot be rescinded.
That is all.
Signed: Magnus VII
King of New Colchis.
