    The Year of Bloody Skies

    Map:

    Spoiler :


    The year begins with a spate of action in Asia as a rebellion flares in China. Egypt's forces are all tied down on defensive operations in the Middle East and Europe, so a rather weak rebellion centric around a figure claiming to be Mao Zedong has risen in China, claiming their right to a China for the people. Meanwhile, spies strike the FUSSPLR and cause two Guards Battalions to desert the colors. Little else occurs in Asia save the redeployment of the Watch and Egyptian fleets off toward America or Europe, and the land transfer of Myanmar and Malaysia from Egypt to India.

    In North America, Montreal, Mexico and the Wali Emirates launch a series of offensives across the board, but Montreal fails to leave a defensive reserve. The United States exploits this weakness and assaults California with its entire army, ceding all its territory and bringing its nuclear missiles to safe bases. An uprising sweeps across Wali America in the name of the "United American Syndicalist Republics" and claims their right to an independent socialist American state. Mexico sweeps up Deseret and Texas and Montreal seizes the Midatlantic. Now the powers of America face a new, greater problem - the United States Remnant is nuclear-armed and clearly willing to fire.(United States can fire nukes!)

    In Europe, however, things take a turn for the bloody as the Egyptian Republic and Northern Watch invade the Commune of France. Egyptian troops storm Corsica and Sardinia, Occitania and Catalonia, and seize the mountains of Switzerland. The Egyptian Navy sweeps aside the single French frigate in their way - but before it goes, the vessel is able to slip close enough to sink Egypt's aircraft carrier.

    The Northern Watch prepares to cross the channel - the largest military force to do so in eighty-one years - but first they attempt to gain air superiority by sending their air force to do battle with the French pilots. Missiles fly, cannons roar, and jets wheel around the clouds over France seeking triumph and glory. At the end of what will forever be known as the Battle of Bloody Skies, France has lost one Strike squadron, but at the counterweight of obliterating four Watch Strike Squadron and two CAS wings - almost four and a half to one. The Watch Air Force retires in disgrace.

    Now all eyes turn to the cross-channel invasion as the Watch assaults the coast from Belgium to Portugal. The French decide to withdraw their defenses to a ring on the French coast, ceding Spain and Portugal, but take losses as they are driven from Belgium and Brittany. The Watch come within miles of Paris, but the French Air Force manages to throw them back into the Channel. Meanwhile, small rebellions flare up in Greece and Istanbul, but the Turan Army shows its impossibly high quality and puts them down without fuss.(France DEFCON set to 2)

    It remains to be seen whether Germany will take sides in the European War, and whether Poland and Montreal shall surge to the aid of their French ally. Whether the other powers of Europe, Africa and Asia shall ignore the Watch and Egypt's casual decision to annihilate a neighboring power or assist a party in the conflict is another burning question - and one without a good answer.

    The flames of world war are now rising, and the specter of nuclear Armageddon looms. If the button is pressed, there is no telling where the chain of destruction will lead.

    Let the MADness reign . . . .

    The UMWE declares that the risen American power of the UASR has risen from the areas we occupied. As such we cannot see them as rebels against the UMWE but rather rebels against the USA who have taken a great opportunity. We hence will consider our diplomatic options; we will consult our allies on whether to recognise the new nation or not.

    As for the USA: we will consult with our allies on what to do with them. The use of atomics will not be regarded well, even in a invasion. Complete with the rise of the UASR and the USA's legality has been fully collapsed. As such we will consult our allies and consider our next move, whether to consult peace or alterative means of avoiding the use of atomics.

    The UMWE will also like to inform that our agents have discovered that agents behind the uprising of the UASR were either Watch or French in origin. Which of these two we do not know but we will be watching the little conflict in France, judging from the evidence and pragmatic consideration.

    Finally: our strategists will study the Battle of the Bloody Skies for our aerial strategic benefit. We hence require permission to send a party of air force strategists to France to help study the sites of battle as neutral observers and battle archaeologists.

    The FUSSPLR and Mongolia recognize China as the legal Government of China and call the Egyptians to stop their colonial occupation of China.

    The Northern Watch would like to note that it cannot be either of these powers that have instigated this 'revolt'. One, France's government has been lax the past year, doing almost nothing (I don't believe they made orders in on time). And two, all our spies were involved in the war effort, both on offense and on defense. We had none to spare for a conflict across the seas.

    We will recognize this american state and offer a full alliance and an investment of IP to get its economy on track and rebuilding after the war if it agrees to give up its socialist way for capitalism (agrees to edit out syndicalist from its name) and becomes a commercial trade country. However we cannot recognize another socialist state whom will inevitably fail as a way of their policies, as that would be hurting innocents.

    Although not involved in the conflict, The Northern Watch would propose that in order to avoid Nuclear War, the USA is given back its old territory from before the war, along with reparations to help rebuild. We see this as fair as they were the ones invaded, and clearly none of us wants nuclear war! (Even though some deserve it)

    Finally, we will be telling the Wali Emirates their neutral strategists will not be permitted access to France as it is currently a war zone. We will not risk the safety of those strategists only to be blamed, and in any case we do not feel it i appropriate to have outsiders in such a sensitive area at this time. We will of course allow them after the war for what limited use it will be of to them.

    The FUSSPLR assumes too much. Run back to Moscow and stop interfering in the affairs of other before you get invaded and annexed by somebody bigger than you.

    We are not amused by your threats. Instead of diplomacy, you start threatening. Is this because you are wrong and you have no moral ground and you have to resort to force?

    The FUSSPLR cannot accept colonial occupation. As such, while we shall not respond to any Egyptian invasion by military force, we declare a no fly zone in the areas under Rebel Control.

    We also call Egypt to grant freedom to China. We are ready to enter in negotiations.

    We do not threaten. We are granting advice to an underpowered Russian country surrounded by world powers and seemingly has even worse diplomats than the foreign affairs department here in Bergen! If you don't tone down your rhetoric, somebody, not necessarily us, is going to find it easier to invade than appease you.

    First, the FUSSPLR is not weak.
    Second, if someone invades us, he will be crushed. Neither Napoleon or Hitler managed to defeat us.
    Third, how can you deman independence of certain countries when you colonize other nations?
    Fourth, we shall not change our policy of a no fly zone over rebel held China.
    Fifth, we can enter in negotiations.
    Sixth, threats only persuade us that you are imperialists.

    Whether this is guanine or not will be observed but we will take account. Your indeed required grand planning as our jihad did. That does not rule out the possibility of you deploying agents in some form however but it does give you evidence to your advantage.

    The UMWE will urge the new American power to not become a pawn of the Northern Watch: the UMWE offers protection to the UASR and may promise to station our navy and air force around the Atlantic to be ready to rush to the UASR's defence. We will protect the UASR as long as it agrees to be a beacon of tolerance so that God's love and justice can echoes throughout the Atlantic. May God bless the UASR!

    The Northern Watch would mind them watch their tonged after their invasion of France. Do not lecture on our jihad by issuing that we should pay reparations. As for the atomic war; we are to find a solution to the problem, be it by peace or otherwise.

    We cannot give the USA back, especially after the rise of the UASR (whose existence we promise to protect) and Mexico's reclaiming of Texas. We are open to diplomacy with the USA but we are cautious that we do not wish to regard atomic threats. The USA had proven to be ill to exist; hence we will consult our allies for a strategy.

    What ever happens we will not give reparations.

    What of Egypt's take on this? We are willing to have our strategists tag along the Egyptian forces as neutral observers.

    France has been sending orders, and was content on being on the sidelines, waiting from the shadows. However, now we must abandon our old plans and take out the fascist scum who dared to take the glorious commune down.

    Vive la Grande Guerre Patriotique!

    To: Our brothers in arms in America, Poland, Russia, Falklands, and Montreal
    From: France


    The fascists have come knocking on the gates of Paris. Now is the time to strike back, and bring a new world order under the red banner. For the workers of the world, strike!

    In depth research from last year revealed that only three countries had the necessary espionage skills to have pulled off all the black ops. The first is of course the Falklands, whom we ruled out due to their isolationist policy. The second is Poland whom swears it prefers diplomacy to espionage. Finally there is France, the second covert power. It has been quiet but never inactive. Much like the South African Uswahili, who is now the nuclear power of the world, France has been plotting in the dark. Unless Poland would like to step forward and say it was its spies that caused all the damage last year then we must conclude it was France who caused revolts in Jordan and made the Capital of Morocco flip to the Egyptian Republic. We will not suffer that sort of scoundrel activity.

    Let us make one thing clear. Russia is a third rate power hiding behind others. Due to the lying and manipulative foreign policy of your country that alliance is fast falling apart. I had multiple spies on the defensive once more. While France might be able to slip through nearly unnoticed your own agents are not so adept. 5 of my good agents died to bring me the name of your pathetic country. Not that it wasn't obvious when you have been trying to create a small easily bullied Chinese state for years.

    China is not in free rebellion. It is in funded anarchy that has caused the deaths of innocents in you bloodlust and maddness. Mongolia has also still not answered ANY messages sent to it either publicly or privately.

    So here is my negotiating stand point. I want the original Mongolian government back, the ones who I was in communication with years ago. If you have murdered them, then the blood will be on your hands and you will have revealed yourself as a international monster. China WILL be freed. But not by your hands. If I do not hear from the REAL INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED Mongolian government in 24 hours I will gather the Mongolian refuges and put them in charge of a free Mongolian nation. I hope you are smart enough to realise what this nation would probably do as its first act. Would you then defend a rebellious china and a enslaved Mongolia from the true inheritors of Asia?

    It did not take as much planning as you might think. When a Alliance is true then you can easily just trust the other person to handle their part. If Watch Agents were on the offensive I would assume they were the ones behind the Russian troops deserting, though I would frown on this use of Black ops if they were. As France was the one to flip your Capital I would assume it was them behind your latest difficulties as well.

    While we understand our Ally the Watches view on keeping civilians away from the warzone, Egypt will try to accommodate you. You are , after all, also a victim of these senseless Espionage attacks. We would warn you to steer clear of the Watch warzone and to keep your head down. But would you require anything else?

    OOC: If Ghost is about to go down I don't see why he couldn't rejoin as the Free Mongolian nation I am most likely going to have to unleash.

    We will judge. We will hence not rule out either France or the Watch; the activity in America does have the marking of France with a possible communal syndicate but that could be a cleaver move by the Watch to keep their hands clean while conducting a dark act. We will keep our eyes open. At the least we are ensured that any future activity would be difficult for France to pull off; after all you have reduced them greatly and so any further act will not be by their hand... likely. We will keep our guard up in case.

    Our strategists will be fine as long they have access to study how the war is carried out, especially on the Battle of the Bloody Skies. They will be under your thumb; communication can be set by your censoring for intelligence protection while they will have to heed your orders on movement.

    OOC: we will see what occurs... I will look forward to see the war's ending.

    Perhaps the Russians need to be reminded of the mongols?


    Link to video.

    Turan understands and we can agree on this action, however we do feel that you should have attempted diplomatic action first

    Turan will back you up on this. We demand that the old Mongolian government is returned to power or Turan will bring them back by force if needed.

    Turan also refuses to recognize the pretender "Mao" government in China, if they do not stand down and allow a new government in China Turan will ensure that one will be created.

    Just so people know, I will be going camping/to a concert starting wednesday night and ending Sunday. It looks like I will miss the next update depending on where it falls so I may not respond promptly. I won't have internet access in that timeframe.
