On July 1, 2007 the long defunct International Communist Party officially announced that it was reforming as a new alliance. The original ICP had been a controversial alliance, and it was immediately clear that so would be its reformation. The Founders of this new ICP had contacted both Emperor Revenge of New Pacific Order and Kaiser Martens of Norden Verein and gotten go ahead from both - to quote Kaiser Martens "It's fine, go ahead, we won't be killing you". On July 5 shortly prior to update, a joint announcement from Norden Verein and the Golden Sabres declared that this new ICP would not be tolerated, and from that moment a state of war existed between the three alliances.
July Massacre, Fall Holmgard, "lol ICP" War
On November 27, 2007, Kaiser Martens resigned from the Norden Verein. At this time Kaiser Martens made a statement of apology for "blowing up ICP 2.0", listing a reason for the conflict as just 'for the hell of it'." (Kaiser Martens' apology).
While Martens' statement was initially taken by the left as an admission that the war had no legal basis, Arcades057 (a former member of the Golden Sabres) later stated that it was his idea to attack the ICP and, furthermore, that it was he who approached Norden Verein and asked for their assistance as per the MADP between their alliances. As such, Arcades057 stated that Martens bore no direct responsibility for initiating the war. (Arcades057 also stated that Martens had intended to leave the ICP in peace and that he, Arcades057, had to convince Martens to support the Golden Sabres' war.)
