Hey.

Hey Matar.

My daughter wants you to know something.

She says you're a poopy face.

I can recommend a good counselor, if you want. Look up Candi at the pole position in Callie and ask for the special counseling session.

Thank you, Mr. Ronin. That means kind of a lot from you. It would maybe mean even a little more if that hadn't been Praefecta Daphiti's daughter you just dismissed as "excrement."

You've met the Praefecta, as well, if you weren't already aware. You thanked her for her account of Teacher's duel with Ms. Kim.

Oh Winds. The shoreleave special. Make sure everyone's shots are up to date.

..I mean, there's only so much you can discuss about one news article, Sir. So off topic discussion is going to start eventually once the topic has been talked about enough and people get bored of it. Or at least I think..

Something about a Quafe convoy running afoul of a Caldari border patrol.... I think.

I can! And I assure you that Mr. Schmidt's reply was an outraging off-topic post! Big smile

Despite all the witty repartee, we still haven’t been given a justifiable rationale for the necessity of killing over four thousand people in people in nonmilitary vessels by a State Navy.

While perhaps an insignificant occurrence in the deep dark where might alone makes right.

Many of us would like to know simply why?

Or shall we just scribble this down as another ‘perclivity of State honor’?

Maybe the state doesn't feel like it needs to justify itself to the nigh immortal demigods that roam around space killing hundreds of thousands more people then this on the daily... we do kinda set a bad example for this kind of thing.

Actually, they do, and I would invite you to speak for yourself.

I am not a demigod, nor am I immortal, practically perhaps, but immortal, no.

I think you misread that warranty they gave you when you became a 'Capsuleer'.

Actually, they don't. If they owe anyone an explanation, it's Quafe. Of which you are not an employee, and therefore are owed nothing. Asking is one thing, but demanding where you have no authority is just arrogant.

Keep the invitation, you need it more then I do.

Hence the word nigh in there. Meaning near, almost, not quite but close.... I'm sure you get the idea.

Quafe may be a Gallente corporation in origin, but those employees were State citizens, legally employed by Quafe's legal State subsidiary corporation, which holds significant corporate standing there.

So, there is still some question as to how appropriate the Navy response here was.

From where I sit, it was a bit over kill. But without all the details (that we aren't going to get most likely) that's just speculation. For all we know they could've been Caldari extremists on those freighters, hauling high explosives into Federation space to carry out terrorist attacks on the Gallente. Or there could have been federal agents on board that the Caldari felt couldn't be allowed to escape. Or maybe the FC just got an itchy trigger finger. The possibilities are endless. The blockade doesn't extend to capsuleers, so for us, the validity of the Caldari military's actions is an academic question.

We capsuleers don't especially deserve to know why those people were killed, no. But their families (and inevitably the public) deserve to know.
