A New Era?

JN Meetings continue to be very eventful as yet another exciting JN Meeting has come to a close this past week. The events of this meeting may be signaling the beginning of a new era in the JN. We shall see.

At the meeting this past Saturday, a Supreme Council election was held. The Ambassadors of Thailand and Jordan both retained their seats in the election. The Ambassador of Canada chose not to run for reelection, and the Ambassador of Germany was elected to fill her seat.

Old problems and Random Events were fixed quickly at the meeting and without much incident. Venezuela just made the deadline to submit a Request for Aid that was unanimously approved by the Security Council. Venezuela thus became the first country to receive aid from the General Welfare Fund. Other problems, along with famine in Poland were addressed as well at the meeting.

The most shocking event of the meeting however, came when a resolution was brought by Russia to not only repeal the recently passed sanctions against it, but also to limit the US's ability to use force against Russia in the future by stipulating that the US cannot go to war with Russia if Russia has no military points. Following this action, it was announced that a formal alliance had been made. The countries of Australia, Poland, Jordan, South Korea, Russia, and Kenya are all now allied as part of the Allies Team. With Russia allied with he richest and most powerful nations in the JN, taking action against Russia has become all but impossible. The power in the JN seems to be shifting away from the US.

A resolution that would have implemented time limits for JN Meetings and speaking times during meetings was presented and hotly debated. It however ultimately failed in a vote of 2-7. 

In Random Events, Russia (scientific breakthrough), Jordan (oil!), and Thailand (MyPhone) all have Random Events to address at the next meeting. There are also two large problems affecting the EU and Russia as well as the Asia/Pacific region that will need to be fixed at the next meeting on April 12.
