II.F.2 - Should they reject, leave them be. With a watchful eye.
II.F.3 - Should they accept, send a NAP. Help them rebuild themselves up for their own good, not for another war.
II.F.4 - Should they occasionally send spies, with harm; tie and break their hands, follow II.E.1-3 once again. Should it repeat, obliterate them. Without harm; a careful town should be noted as a potential threat.
