[IC] An open letter to the Government

An open letter to the Government

Every nation needs leaders. This Government has had successes and failures throughout recent history, and their wish to eliminate criminals, violent individuals, and a potentially economically dangerous revolt is not to be ignored. It should, however, be the primary aim of any person attempting to govern during the current national situation to promote peace, and to liaise with the people in order to reduce mindless killing and promote a successful nation.

Peace talks thus far have all broken down, and failed. The vast majority of talks, however, have been led by an invested party, therefore negotiations have not considered all sides of the argument, and thus disagreements have arisen very early. It is the aim of the PFUP to listen to all parties, to advise them accordingly, and to enable negotiations to occur in a professional, peaceful manner. The only way this can happen, is if the government leaders voice their trust, and acceptance of the Front as the leaders of a new (hopefully successful) round of peace talks, which can leave them in control of a nation who’s people accept their authority, without the need for violence.

The Front really hope we can get your word to engage, join, and work with us to initiate a coordinated, fair movement to bring peace and stability to Panau, and we hope you trust that our intentions are genuine.

Yours
The People’s Front for a United Panau

There can not be a nation without a leader. Not a functional one, anyway. That is what we have now, with 4 separate entities laying claim to the archipelago, none of which has historically been interested in peace talks. As most of us think of the rebels as savages who just want power, to them we, and the other rebels, are usurpers and dictators.
If we are the first side to stop the fight, we will be the first side to lose. Even if you achieved peace with one of the groups, the suffering of the people of Panau will not stop, with other factions still in conflict, with our negotiating power weakened by having to compromise with someone who does not agree with our ideas of leadership, trade, governance or freedom.
While I appreciate any effort to end the civil war, I can not approve of any peace that is not total and with us in charge. No other peace effort can be our primary focus, unless you love this soil so much you wish to be united with it as soon as possible.
We have the upper hand right now and we need to maintain it. I do not want to see Panau become a setting for a Far Cry videogame, with backwards pirates in charge, or the next Venezuela, rich in oil but with a starving, dirt poor population after a failed attempt at communism.

Of course we understand the need for a successful group of professional leaders in a formal government, and would not suggest for a moment that Panau should attempt a 'Leaderless nation' of any sort. I personally have experience with politics, with this government, and with leading and performing negotiations and this experience, along with the experience of the other members of The Front will be invaluable in initiating peace talks in which this Government can not only rule Panau for themselves, but for the people who inhabit Panau, many of whom are now somehow personally involved in this conflict.

Historical peace talks have all been complete failure, that is a fact we am aware of, however peace talks have always been led from a very 1-faction perspective, that being initiated by and enabled by one faction with a very acute agenda. This is why we believe this attempt will be more successful. As a completely independent organisation, the PFUP are able to discuss with each of the factions and put forward a reasonable and fair agenda which can satisfy all, and lead to peace. From this position of peace, more constructive talks can take place, without violence and killing.

A 'Total War' is neither economically viable, nor politically advantageous. Modern history demonstrates the need for negotiations in times of conflict and war, and as the government of Panau, being the first to agree to listen to negotiators is not a position of weakness, but one of strength.

The Front are not expecting an immediate end to conflict, and agreeing to support us and talk to us is not an admission of defeat, nor an agreement to surrender arms and give up fighting. It is simply an agreement that we can act for you, and with you, in order to put your conditions for peace on the table.

No war can continue forever. And without negotiation, nobody can ever win. Show the people of Panau that this Government doesn't want this hell to continue in their towns, and on their streets. There is nothing to lose by agreeing to talk to the PFUP

Thank you

Mr. Le bon:

Under the leadership of the current government, Panau continues to reclaim the land taken by the rebels, who themselves claim righteousness and justice to the war that they have started. As Secretary of Justice I can tell you that their actions are obviously worthy of prosecution and that the priority of the Government continues to be to defend it's citizens and prevent all acts of uprising, treason and terrorism against our glorious nation. Unless there is a Presidential and/or Vice Presidential order, or an approved law in regards to laying down weapons for some time and resorting to negotiations, said actions cannot happen. Regardless if it is a cease fire, territory agreement or any other kind of resolution. These committing said uprisings are considered criminals, they are wanted by justice and will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law when they are apprehended.

We will all continue to work in the best way to find peace, as we all wish for it, but we simply cannot abdicate of our sovereignty and laws, as it would lead to a nation without order and justice.

Best Regards,

Adam John Brooks, Secretary of Justice.

In a war throughout which henious acts have been committed repeatedly by both sides, one cannot claim the war can ever be won simply by regaining through military action and invasion. That is not to say I disagree with the points you make regarding justice, and this is something which would be well integrated with the negotiations, with my expert negotiators attempting to bring the demands of your faction to the table in a discussion which will resolve in a solution that satisfies this government, and allows them to build on the position Panau would be left in.

As far as we are concerned, we do not expect an immediate ceasefire to occur, and we do understand the need for fighting will continue until appropriate resolutions are brought forward. Therefore we are not asking that the government announce any kind of ceasefire, or agreement in relation to territory or combat. We are simply requesting that the government officials meet with, talk with, and work with the PFUP's negotiators, in order to lay out their demands and requirements. This will then allow our negotiators to meet, discuss, and begin the much needed healing process, which will eventually result in complete ceasefire, once all parties are content.

Total war does not work. You can never defeat these rebels, as much as you knock them down they will continue to come back fighting. A war cannot be won without negotiations, and we here at the PFUP wish to help you get your side heard loudly and clearly.

Thank you
