The South Korea and Japan Conflict
It's a fact that, before the conflict started by Japan to cleanse South Korea of its foreign occupiers, Squibeel was one of the citizens that helped and, thanks to his effort, prevented a real war between the two countries by helping with training manoeuvres.
War eventually broke out between the two countries, and during these events Squibeel managed to attain 43 medals and level up 4 ranks. But it still wasn't enough, and on day 1189, the great Emperor Kokawayoshi Makoto and Squibeel both launched articles announcing White Peace between both countries.
The Canada and Japan Conflict
Between August and September, Canada declared Japan as the Natural Enemy and attack Hokkaido. Squibeel, as Supreme Commander of Terra, tried to stop this conflict, not only was Japan his country but Canada was also wasting damage against a neutral country.
Squibeel warned Canada publicly and this lead to a great discontent by the officials of Canada. Due to a miscommunication inside Terra, Squibeel wasn't informed and this later lead to an apology on the very same article.
This was also viewed as a political stunt to help Aeriala win the elections in Canada.
With the help of South Korea, the war between Canada and Japan was closed. Squibeel negotiated with Alexander Auctoritas, President of USA, and was able to get an MPP between Japan and USA and give Canada one more reason not to re-open the war.
The Portugal and Japan Conflict
On Day 2073, Portugal launched an Airstrike against Japan. Squibeel used this chance to speed up the ongoing negotiations with China regarding a Training War and successfully stopped the Portuguese Airstrike in its tracks. China was able to block Portugal to just 3 regions, leaving Portugal with Kanto, Kinki and Chubu.
Squibeel had no choice but to support continuous Resistance Wars to lower the Portuguese Q6 Shield, which was awarded after the National Shield Tournament. This was due to the fact that Circle of Trust had not offered any support during the initial Airstrike and was refusing to help while the Shield was in place. This campaign was dubbed Operation Suzumebachi (after the Japanese Giant Hornet).
On Day 2122, Plato launched the Epic Warfare Tournament which left Japan hopeless facing the fact that Portugal had now the chance of recharging an almost depleted Shield. This led to the birth of the Mitsunami War, a war started by Squibeel who was influenced by Kazami Yukka and his thirst for Portuguese blood.
During the Mitsunami War, the Government of Japan was able to pull off a series of victories which friendly, allied and mercenary support. Squibeel was able to convince the Circle of Trust to support the first battle in Chubu and then the whole campaign to kick Portugal out of its Japanese territories.
After the second victory, Squibeel had already conceived a plan that would award Japan with one chance to kick Portugal for good and a fail-safe that would allow Japan a second chance. This consisted in launching a Natural Enemy proposal right after the second victory, which would catch Portugal by surprise, and at the same time launch a Resistance War in the last region. If Japan were to lose the Resistance War then they would be able to attack again via Natural Enemy but with reduced chances due to MPPs but such a need would not arise since Japan successfully won the last Resistance War and was finally able to kick out Portugal.
Presidency of Japan
Squibeel eventually won the April 5th Presidency Elections.
The results were the following:
Squibeel released an article announcing his cabinet on that same day.
The biggest changes during Squibeel's Presidency was the creation of both a new Forum and a new IRC channel in the attempt to keep the community of eJapan active and welcome future players. He also supported the re-organization of the eJapanese Military and tried his best to keep eJapan afloat at the negotiation tables with eRepublic of China (Taiwan) and by signing old and new MPPs with other countries and, thanks to some of these efforts and with the help of his cabinet, help eJapan get back its Congress.
He released some articles during his Presidency to keep the community updated.
In the end, Squibeel's term as President wasn't the most successful of 2012 but he supported eJapan and tried to maintain it.
