Newspaper clippings from the Belgisch Staatsblad:

"Waffle Production Rises

Production of Belgian Waffles has risen above and beyond the memories of even the oldest Waffleetier. New figures for 1903 show export of waffles 163% higher than last year and at new all-time record levels..."



"Newer, More Lethal, Waffles

In a shocking trend, the Belgian Statistical Agency has recorded an increase in waffle-related fatalities. In a typical year, the rate of waffle deaths is around 0.3 to 0.5 deaths per 1,000,000 waffles consumed. In figures just released for 1903, 78,000 deaths occurred per 1,000,000 waffles consumed. Some attribute this to a matter of quality: "The better waffle is always the waffle that could kill you," said the German Minister in Brussels, "I know that's what I'm thinking about when I have breakfast."

Hallo. We are Hans and Franz...Ferdinand. And we're here to pump *clap* you up.

Until such time as the British Crown relents from their hardheadedness, the dual house of Habsburg has no option but to Declare War. We will prosecute this war with any and all means available to us, until satisfactory recompense has been exacted. This conflict shall be waged upon every imaginable front, whether visible or not to the short sighted English monarchy.

(OOC: Dave, aside from you, there are three remaining principal powers. You're at war with one of them, and will inevitably be at war with the other. Why in the world did you choose to antagonize the third?)

As our opening salvo, we have distributed the lethal Belgian waffles to bed and breakfast inns throughout the British Commonwealth. Fatalities are sure to ensue. Even if the Crown should issue a public health warning, even the most timid soul would be unable to resist the delicious (but DANGEROUS) Belgian waffles in favor of the tasteless boiled tomatoes you English call breakfast.

OOC: Ok then, I'll give you half an answer! The game is called "Diplomacy", not "Hey You, Let's Fight!"

OOC: Sometimes "Hey you, let's fight" is part of the diplomatic measures. Moreso when your ally is at war with said person's ally. :) At least it's not being re-named "dance puppets, dance!"

OOC: "Hey you, let's fight!" is the breakdown of diplomacy. Military action is the final resort. That's why it was only half an answer to your 50/50 seriousness.

OOC: If "Military action is the final resort." were the name of this game, noone would do anything ever. ;p
