Talk:Federal Defense Plan
Interesting idea, Zahir. How does this interface with patriotic feeling among the member states? (ie I can imagine a strongly patriotic Oltenian being less fully engaged if called upon to repel an attack on Moldova than one on his home soil). Also, what about morale among the "non-key" forces of each state. It can't do much for the morale of the Oltenian Army or the Royal Moldovan Navy to know that they are considered second-string forces. In fact, you do allude to the above. Geoff
- Is it common for, say, anOltenian who wants to be an infantryman to enlist in the Moldavian army? Benkarnell 13:22, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
- Morale is one of the problems with the plan. The idea (such as it is) is to get everyone thinking along the lines of "We are Romanian." How well that works, and how quickly, is the question, though.
- Benkarnell, methinks probably the another phase of the plan would be to strongly encourage 'foreign' Romanians into each primary branch, perhaps even creating the equivalent of a Romanian Foreign Legion, as well as encouraging exchange programs. Zahir 14:58, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
