Re: Non-aggression commitment with nations of Earth ¶
Assuming being lied to as a default action, considering the environment, isn't a poor modus operandi - up until the point independantly correlatable facts begin to emerge. Asgardia shouldn't be excempt from this, especially lacking the indendantly correlatable facts. I'm currently prepared to take it upon face value, especially as it is currently asking nothing of me, but there are already several "warning signs" being emitted and these do seem to be making a lot of people uncomfortable. Time reveals all.
Where is this proof "we nuclear bombed the moon"? AFAIK Project A119 never came to frutition. Which is possibly a good thing as it'd adjust it's orbit somewhat.
A non-agression commitment doesn't represent "putting your guard down" - just an intent not to commit to agressive actions. If I take swing at you, and you just tke a step back so that it misses, or intercept my fist to prevent impact this isn't an agressive action. Stepping forwards as my hand sails past to deliver one of your own however would be - and it's unlikely to do much to stem my determination to cause harm. However, consitently missing or unable to acquire target there's only a limited amount of swings before I physically run out of energy or get bored and give up - at which point you're completely safe. Long term.
And mitigation of attack is all that would actually be required on our part, we have no requirement to exhibit the precise same behavours. Lead by example.
