Although the PBR has declared that its intentions are peaceful, the Lego Republic is taking precautions in the interest of national security. On the "green/yellow/orange/red" scale, the military has been placed on an "orange"-level alert, which signifies "high risk." The LRS Versailles has also been stationed in the southern Legolantic Sea near East PBR for increased security. The PBR and Republic are on friendly terms, but risks must be mitigated in the present international climate of uncertainty, according to Minister of Foreign Affairs Jane Hanover.
"We are confident that the PBR, one of our closest allies, has only benign interests at heart. Nevertheless, tanks and soldiers are swarming, mere studs from our southern border, and this cannot be ignored," said Hanover.
President Bricks will give an address on the subject later this week.
