Wendy, it usually is not wise to condemn those with bigger, sharper, and pointier sticks than you. This whole issue vaguely resembles the Russian invasion of Georgia IRL.

You propagandize that teh evil LDI attacked you and blah blah blah, but the attacks (IMO) were provoked by forum trollery. Drawing on the RL comparison, Georgia (and the western media) propagandized "ZOMG Russia invaded a sovereign nation" but less reported is the fact that Georgia shelled a city with a large Russian population in South Ossetia province BEFORE the invasion.

Those who know much about Russian culture know that Russia sees itself as...well, the defender of Russians. A counterattack on Russia's part was quite predictable IRL.

I have learned of this similarity between the RL Russian Federation and the LDI on Little Upsilon. I'd give the LDI their space, because I know if I trolled LDI on the forums, I'd probably lose my empire as the five RL months since I returned to SC is not enough time to build my economy to support the army and ammo stockpiles that'd be necessary to defend against LDI.

At least I have plenty of nuclear missile batteries, heh :)
