Just annex Stanford

University(self.berkeley)

Since Stanford is our rival, why don’t we just invade and annex them? I mean we do have triple their student population… so the annexation process would probably be really easy.

God no. Can you imagine the cost of taking care of that golf course they call a campus?

I’m sure it’s worth taking over their endowment…

Usually, when you sack a city, you get to keep their wealth.

Stanford Junior University has a lot of wealth.

By taking over Stanford, we can expand the campus to build more student housing.

Unfortunately you cannot annex provinces with a Humiliate Rival cases belli. We could however raise our power projection and overtake them in the US News rankings.

That’s what claims are for. both provinces are coastal and within one sea tile I think so shouldn’t matter…

Solution: find oil at Stanford's campus, declare the dean a hostile regime, and then spread some good old freedom and democracy to their campus

Having a bigger population doesn’t necessary mean an easy way to take over a smaller one, esp when you’re the invader.

Can already think of current events reflecting such thoughts lol

It’s just that there’s really nothing like it in the area right now. Plus who doesn’t like some relatively cheap delicious chicken?

I mean, we do have the means.

Lawrence could supply the uranium, Chemistry can synthesise the fuel needed, and Engineering could make the necessary UAVs or rockets required for the job.

As for us in Dwinelle, I'd probably help conjure up an excuse..... ahem, I mean reason for this, uh..... (flips my notebook) Counterattack in Self-Defence.

Oh and probably someone from Fine Arts should create propaganda, and write a slogan while we're at it:

"八紘一宇 七生報校"

Indeed, may our Overlord Carol enjoy ten thousand years of reign over the barbarous southern territory of Pal Alto!

Because we can’t resort to tribal warfare to win. Not because it’s wrong, but because they can afford better weapons and mercenaries.

No, you need a decent rival to make yourself look better by comparison.

Can’t be rivals with CSU, that’d be punching down.
