After showing everybody in the world that they were prepared to bomb anyone into the stone age, the new administration in Pineland spent the rest of their time seeking closer diplomatic relations with traditional foes and pulling their military back home once more. Many considered them erratic for this. They threatened North Cortina with utter destruction, and then talked to them. They retreated from Donovian threats entirely, while placing trade sanctions on Ariana and Acadia. They even negotiated a withdrawal from Attica that created a joint government between the Attican administration and the remaining Islamic Congress of Attica. The administration said some battles were worth fighting, others were not, and that they would do everything they could to bring the troops home while maintaining enough of a watch on bad actors to keep them down.
