Fossils and Friends is a non political raider region as it has been explained; but let me quote The Shadow for you:
"We are Raiders, pure and simple! We will Raid all regions, no matter their political ideologies, with impunity. We support Raiders from all ideologies as long as they park those ideologies outside the Raided region before and during a Raid and any Alliance organ. We will not tolerate those who violate this sacred Ethos among us."
By Order: ~Shadow~
Any raider is welcome to fight with them; and I am pleased as President of Imperial Earth to associate with such caliber of fighters. Politics stops at the door, and if small minds are unable to comprehend such things that is not my fault or problem. I will also reiterate what is posted on The Black Fleet WFE:
Everyone of character and merit worthy of fighting with us will be given an opportunity to JOIN US, as we sail against opposition forces, or declare their region Neutral (by using the Neutral Tag). There is no middle ground or sanctuary from this day hence; regardless of political affiliation.

Effective immediately all personnel of The New Iron Order are ordered to leave and never return to any territory or region of Imperial Earth . All permissions are hereby revoked. Failure to comply will leave us no option but to defend our territories and regions with deadly force
Ketol Supremacy Any more cheap shots at me for raiding with RAIDERS and your region(s) will be targeted for elimination - Savvy?
I will not tolerate attacks of any sort against my person or the regions I operate for the choices I make for the good of the state. This is not a bleeding heart society of liberal democrats but a war machine designed to incorporate the best, and if necessary by the choices of others, destroy the rest. If anyone cares to look up what a Stratocracy is you will understand direct rule and chain of command.
Forthwith; notice is given to operatives of The Black Fleet to watch for sedition and report it to me directly.
J o J If you wish to continue service in The Black Fleet, you will be required to follow instructions that may mean the destruction of regions outside our normal communist and socialist target range and those would come by Presidential Order. This will not be standard operating procedure but only as the situation demands. You may choose to leave right now if this is an issue for you - with my thanks for the service to date
I donít have a problem with that, unless there is ever an order for me to attack another regional ally of J o J in the future, in that case I will have no choice but to refuse such an order, and I will depart from TBF upon penalization for such refusal(s). This includes TNIO; an ally to J o J in several organizations (TOO, IRX, Virtu League), and a friendly region in good relations. I canít have one ally asking me to attack the another.
If youíre going to throw me out for that; do it now. Iím not going to take that personally, itís just diplomacy and business. You should remember though, that this will only make the mutual combined causes our regions share weaker.
I can not foresee future developments, and as such it is up to other regions such as The New Iron Order to maintain a peaceful stance. I stand by my actions and declarations of intent, and advise close attention to the wording of this post
Perhaps since you have other agreements and alliances that may compromise your ability to serve in the Fleet you will be better served by departing in peace.
I, Wickett W. Warrick, hereby declare by oath, that I renounce any allegiance or fidelity to any other government or region of whom or which I have previously been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the Imperial Earth government against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the Imperial Earth government as a Citizen; that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
