    Eurasian Actions - Round 3 - 2102

    Invoke the boost Space Janitor Experience with a free invoke
    Use our past year’s experience with space junk cleanup to help with further cleanup efforts this coming year.​

    Overcome to Cleanup Space Junk
    Science: Continue with our push toward reducing space junk, with the aim of being able to launch commercial satellites either late this year or early next year. Invite our cosmic comrades to continue with assists!​

    Invoke the boost Neuropharm Report with a free invoke
    Use the government report on the Cog-E deaths to help bolster a legislative push to implement new regulations on the industry, as well as create political cover for the fact those regulations are intended to be relatively benign. Make things seem like we’ve done a real good thing while really not restricted research very much.​

    Overcome to Ease Public Concerns with New Regulations
    Political: The ruling Party of Progress doesn’t actually care very much about a few lives lost in the pursuit of vital science to human civilization. But as they do care about their continued political rule, Zmitser Otroschenkov hereby announces plans to implement new regulations on Cog-E research - but keep them minimal, limited mainly to reducing death-count numbers to prevent another PR disaster while pursuing this line of research.​

    Create an Advantage to Research Cognitive Enhancement Drugs
    Science: With the investigation revealing that, notwithstanding existing regulations, Cog-E research is just inherently dangerous, have firms continue clinical trials - the companies should, until national laws are implemented (see above), self-regulate to avoid a PR disaster again (they should have pretty good self-interested reasons for this already). Once laws are in-place accept a modest decrease in research speed for higher safety - but nonetheless continue with research.​

    Invoke the boost The WE HSR Project with a free invoke
    Let’s push the project to completion! Invoke WE HSR Project to help finish our high-speed rail (see below Overcome action).​

    Overcome to Establish High-Speed Rail
    Economic: Continue supporting our high-speed rail project to completion!​

    Aid IUNATO to Arrest and Assassinate Plaguebringer Leadership
    Covert: Assign some agents within the national security service to collaborate with the Integrated United Nations on their anti-plaguebringer activities. Have the agents lend further manpower toward intelligence gathering for their organization.​

    Excerpt From Reflections on the Asturias War
    By James Bradley
    Published in the Integrated United Nations


    It would be remiss of me to not discuss the importance of International Unificationism to the Spanish Resistance (or more accurately, the Iberian Resistance). Iberian International Unificationism emphasized the importance of the cooperation of the various Iberian nationalities (most importantly the Spanish, the Catalonians and the Portuguese) in achieving independence from Rome and Carthage.

    IntUnificationism became a major influence in the Asturias War primarily due to weapons shipments and other forms of material assistance from the Integrated United Nations. These shipments were handed primarily to militias that embraced IntUnificationism. This influenced the ideological outlook of the Iberian Resistance in multiple ways. The most obvious effect is that the IntUnificationism militias were better equipped and therefore were more effective in resisting occupation and attracting recruits. Seeing the success of these militia, smaller militia groups with no ideological focus began to embrace IntUnificationism to get access to IUN support. The momentum was further accelerated by support from support by Asturias and the Balkan Federation. As the IntUnificationist resistance groups were larger, they received more support from other foreign powers which further compounded their advantages. This cemented IntUnificationism as a major influence in coming events in the Asturias War…

    ****************​

    In addition to our earlier action...

    Action: Continue to Provide Material Assistance to International Unificationist Militia in Iberia (Economic, Create Advantage): The Integrated United Nations will continue provide material (weapons and other things that could be helpful to the Spanish Resistance) to Spanish Resistance cells that support International Unificationism. This will further cement the advantages the Resistance has in upcoming battles.

    Action: Create Integrated United Nations Committee on Sport (Political, Create Advantage): Secure political support within the Security Council in order to create the Integrated United Nations Committee on Sport (IUNCS). The IUNCS will manage the logistics of sports teams for international competitions on behalf of the IUN. This will include matters such as training, transport, security, paperwork and any other challenges that could prevent our athletes from competing. This Committee will oversee the organisation of all individuals and teams wishing to compete in international competitions, but their most important task in the coming months will be preparing us for the Olympics, which could be held very soon.

    Action: Assist Eurasia in Clearing Space Junk (Science): Our scientists will continue to assist Eurasia in clearing space junk.

    Unfortunately, it does not seem that the rest of the socialist world is ready for such an endeavor at the moment. Everyone else who contacted us has merely requested observer status; only two members makes a really pointless Internationale all things considered.

    Our offer still is on the table, if other nations (read: Terra and NPCs) get back to me, but at this point, we might be better off making bilateral agreements to help the proletariat of our respective nations.

    Comrades! The time to liberate Shanghai is now!​


    The great city of Shanghai, once a beacon of the power and progress of the Chinese proletariat, remains in the tainted hands of the Heavenly Kingdom. It is time for their backwards feudalism to unclench its wretched claws from around one of the most prized possessions of our revolution. Soldiers of China, affix your courage and steel yourselves: the battle of Shanghai is nigh upon us.

    ACTION: Military, Attack Invade the province of Shanghai and reclaim the city, leveraging the force of our advance into Jiangsu and pivoting the might of our invasion army against the occupiers' forces and garrisons!

    CC: 2102 Olympics


    Today, at the beginning of 2102, I, Maria Ivanova, the head of the renewed International Olympics Committee, am pleased to announce that the Olympics have taken their first step in their restoration. I am thoroughly floored by the international support that this project has received, and it is an honour to lead the IOC in its first steps.

    With that being said, I believe it is time to introduce the IOC itself, and the members of the executive board, which are as of follows:



    President: Maria Todorova (Balkan Federation)


    Co-Presidents:

    Irwan Raharjo Pranoto (ASEAN)

    James McAlister (IUN)

    Sofia Zemenfes Abdu (Abyssinia)

    Lughaidh Mac Artair (Ireland)

    Kati Conateh (The Sakari Federation)


    Executive Members:


    Aleksandur Ilych (Eurasia)

    Steff the Roock (Shuddering Coalition)

    Helvetia Montana (Rome)

    Shamayim (Carthage)

    Maria Rezio (Colombia)

    Sravan Kabil (Dravidian Free Republic)

    Nicholas Hooper (Australia)

    Ehsan Hatami (Empire of Zun)


    (OOC: The names are all placeholders. If you have a suggestion for a different name, go ahead and tell me and I’ll edit it in.)


    Those are all people that have been asked for their agreement to join the IOC, being either former athletes, or interested in realizing the Olympic dream.


    With that said, I am also proud to say that we’ve also resurrected the Olympic Charter, albeit, with a change that I believe is important to mention.


    That is to say, that in the end, we’re all humans, and that we should not let artificial divides separate us all. Even the original charter realized this, in the fact that sports is a human right. We agree with this statement, but we’d go further: it unifies us as humans, all of us.


    This leads us to the next point. The Olympics are a celebration of the human, not of the nation. One of the things that tarnished the past Olympics is the fact that it has been used by both the hosts & the participants as a way to prove their superiority in one way or another, or as a proxy in geopolitical conflicts. This will not be tolerated in any way. Nor will be any sectarian, ideological or nationalist conflicts on the site of the Olympics. The IOC shall strive to the best of its abilities to accomplish this noble goal, because, once again, we are all humans first and foremost.


    Lastly, but in no way leastly, the choosing of host cities will be drastically changed. Yet another thing that has been the scourge of past Olympics was the enormous political & economical interests that have distorted the initial noble goal of the Olympics. (Remember El Riyad 2036?). Thus, to combat this, we shall instead accept city candidacies, and elect one on a semi-random basis. That being said, however, the IOC reserves its right to veto any applications that occur in certain extreme situations – mostly, current warzones. For an example, Rome & Tunis would be rejected immediately, as well as Shanghai or Tokyo. We see no reason in giving warmongers the honour of hosting an Olympics.


    Well. That’s it all. We eagerly await your applications for the 2102 Olympics, as well as your admissions into the IOC!​

    Should above action fail, send previous invasion landing force as a rapid response and deterrence to the formation of a beachhead.

    The Military Republic of China will sponsor no athletic delegation to the Olympic Games. We believe the committee and indeed the games are an ugly facsimile of capitalist cannibalism and have no desire to play into the primitive circus-rousing of private profit-mongers. By all means, pleasure yourselves in your mudpits and drum circles: we are locked in a battle for our very lives while you drink toasts in your glass boxes to the gladiators below. Call us warmongers if you must, but we spit on your pretentious nobility and will not debase ourselves for the sake of your capitalist rituals. (All while Carthaginians and Romans sit on your executive committee.)

    We have no need for your pathetic games. For us, competition is a daily struggle, as are the efforts of self-improvement. We tighten our bonds of comradeship and know these are unbreakable as we all share the same uniforms and bear on our arms the same crests. We engage in sport not for pride or liberal humanism, but because it is what is required of us by the future. And we pick up our fellows with both arms and radiate the warmth of a community in harmony with itself.

    Look upon our people and know that we restlessly endeavor. Look upon your own people and despair at your decadence.

    Action: Fight the Kuomintang forces back!
    Action:
    Invoke "Oligarchs at our gates"
    Action: Intensify the search for Kuomintang cells in China and possibly Korea.

    It has happened.

    After years of tension, the Kuomintang has finally showed its head to drive our most humble messengers from our rightful land, and impose its old brand of oppression on the humble Chinese people.

    Thousands of brave Chinese, Koreans and Japanese soldiers have died holding the Kuomintang's forces back. Their sacrifice will not be forgotten. The takeover of Nanking by the Kuomintang will be avenged, and we will do everything we can to stop their forces dead on their tracks. Who knows, maybe we will finally begin the liberation of the rest of China, and the rest of the minorities oppressed by the Kuomintang?

    Action: Begin planning the defense of Korea

    We have not forgotten that the Kuomintang has also made public plans for the occupation and vassalization of Korea. We must begin drilling the population there in case of an eventual invasion. For now, only actual soldiers will join the fight in China, but the population must be prepared to fight in case the war reaches their farms and their streets. In addition, we will start the construction of a series of bunkers and minefields around the Yalu river, and we are starting to drill the population in both sides of the river in case there is need for evacuation.

    While you plot to undermine the American patriot with your talk of "cooperation", "fraternity", and "sportsmanship", the barbarians are literally at our gates. We are waging a war for survival as the states brought up by the illegal annexation of AMERICAN states by Mexican rapists massacre our brethren, rape the women, and salt the fields. Yet you ask us to participate in this so-called display of camaraderie, with the fiends that have brought so much destruction? If you think us challenged, then think again. This ostentatious display is nothing more than a front for the global big money elites to celebrate their "inclusiveness" and "diversity", emasculating the patriots of the world who fight to defend their homelands. It allows barbarians to compete alongside the proud and the brave, all while proving a mockery of global peace by allowing Roman rapists and Carthaginian fakers to shake hands and pretend their brothers and sisters are not dying far from their homelands.

    Globalism and International Unificationism died decades ago you feckless thugs. The United Republics of the American Redoubt will not be attempting to revive them; we will not be sending a team. Let the old world order die so a new, more pure one, may be born.

    Despite the complaints of the SRP delegation to the IOC no appointment to the executive of an SRP representative has been made. Prague remains despondent as it has been a committed supporter of the IOC and even accepted responsibility of anti-terrorist security at the event. However senior voices in the Ministry for the Arts have made comment that without executive positions it would be impossible for proper security arrangements to be made. Therefore the Ministry for the Arts has said it will not be using its security expertise to protect any future Olympic games. At least not until such a time as proper oversight can be had.
    Some in the Bureau for Danubian Affairs are suggesting that this is the result of Balkan officials being against the levels of Bureaucratic scrutiny that Prague would being to the table. However Prague dismisses this idea as there is nothing but friendship and mutual respect in the NAP. Of no help though has been the President of the IOC who has refused to comment on the matter despite it being brought to her attention multiple times.
