Australia considers Mauritanias points at best laughable and at worst down right ignorant, (1)in no plausable way does China have any better understanding of the area and demographics than our nation
as they are also an eastern nation [again not Australia is in the east
] Wealso feel we should draw Mauritanias attention to the current motion she has submitted which she is currently loosing in the MuN. We also find it deeply offensive that you should tarnish our great nations history with the same brush as the western nations you speak by which we can only assume you are reffering to the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan in which we were only there as part of the UN forces.
With regards to your point about 'violating you sovreignty' and having us removed from the region we will point out you have not one leg to stand on, (2)we are neither in or near your country and you have no mandate or authority
to govern what a sovreign state wishes to do or has on their territory.
(3)Your list of points are nothing but waffle
We know the area and landscape/weather conditions between us.
We understand the religious issues and culture of the area.
Australia has access to far more advanced surveilance systems than Mauritania does and regardless our military is able to function in all weather and geographical conditions as per training.
We have experience in fighting the Taureg's and Ansar Dine specifically.
We have equal if not better experience in fighting terrorist insurgents through our involvement in Iraq, Afghanistan and numerous other countries.
We now have the military capability to deal with this effectively.
The army of Mauritania is in little shape to forge ahead with a war, especially without Chinas assitance, Australia on the other hand currently has 3 divisions and variousother military assets on the ground [around 17000 troops] and access to more.
We have the better intelligence; satellite mapping and local spies operating in the terrorist ranks for some time now.
We find the first point eyebrow raising and the second simply questionable.
We are local and regional and neighbours and valid legitimate interests for genuine stability.
given Mauritanias current actions we can only see her 'interests' being to batter her neighbour and assert her regional dominance [as shown by her destruction of several villages along the boarder] Australiaon the other hand has a completely impartial objective as she has no interests in the region and is simply here on a humanitarian mission.
Once again Mautiania can be observed to be spouting what can only be described as hate and lies for some unbeknown reason. China has no more mandate for the region than Australia yet both of us have more than Mauritania. We reject all of your calls to leave untill our work with the Malian government is complete and not the government of Mauritania whiich once again has ZERO say in the affairs of Mali.
If your beligerant attitude continues to rise we will take relevant steps accordingly to deal with this issue.
We would also like to remind Mauritania that under the ANZUS treaty we can ask both New Zealand and the USA for assistance in any problems arising from your conduct.
OOC: we're going to have to cut down on these replies at some point theyre getting very long!
