Only one month ago I sat in this same place to write the proclamation that we need to bolster our economy and also our strength because there was war on the horizon. The war I spoke of we now face on both fronts is at its height. In the midst of the hard misfortunes the Federation faced today in our first defensive battle against HoG, we gathered together in a mass meeting of power on the 4th of February to display our unity, our unanimity and our strong will to overcome the difficulties we face in the upcoming days and weeks of the war.Your defense of the WFF is a symbol of heroic, manly resistance to the larger opposing forces. It has not only a military, but also an intellectual and spiritual significance for the alliance as a whole and our allies that are coming to our aid in less than a few hours.
Here for the first time our eyes have been opened to the true nature of war, we want no more false hopes and illusions. We want bravely to look the facts in the face, however hard and dreadful they may be. The history of our alliance and our own pasts has proven that a danger recognized is a danger defeated. Our coming hard battles against Athens and HoG will be under the sign of this heroic resistance. It will require previously undreamed of efforts by our soldiers and our weapons. A merciless war is raging both fronts and Ender was right in saying that in the end there will not be winners and losers, but the living and the dead.
Total war is the demand of the hour! We must put an end to the passive attitude that some may have in this war: The danger facing us is enormous. The efforts we take to meet it must be just as enormous. The time has come to remove the gloves and start using our fists! We must use our full resources, as quickly and thoroughly as it is organizationally and practically possible. The future of this alliance hangs on our success in this war and we are ready to defend it. A large number of this alliances' members are shedding their most valuable blood in this battle already. The danger faces us all, and we must all do our part. Those who today do not understand that will thank us tomorrow that we courageously and firmly took on the task. Can we achieve victory? YES! Because we are going to FIGHT and we are going to WIN!
