Cuban forces made good progress with their advances, however they are starting to encounter much heavier resistence. They will slow down significantly in order to perform more extensive sweep of the area, and hopefully nuetraliZe the remainder of Panamanian forces before begining civil affairs operations.
Construction of Desalinization plants is still progressing nicely, and we are expecting them to be complete by early next week.
We are slowly regaining our industrial capabilities, and our military is placing an order of 500 M908A3 Longhorn MBTs, to replace the aging T-55s and T-64s, and provide work. This order should take about 2 months to fill.

Operation Just Cause II is going along fine in the West.
-My fleet has reached Panama and now has control of the Ocean.
-A squadron of Mirages has taken off from the Carrier and has begun asserting Air Superority, while the new F-2s are following behind mopping up any resistance.
-The same cannot be said for the Ground troops though, 2 Corps of soldiers complete with APCs and tanks have begun a slow push through Panama City, aided by Artillery set up in Panama Int'l airport. With about half of the fit secured, the Airbornes have finally been relieved of combat duty and are riding back to base.
That is all.... For now!

In an attempt to bolster our military power in the ever changing Americas, 1,250 paratroopers were dropped over Kentucky and Missouri specifically Fort Knox, Whiteman AFB and Fort Campbell. We expect this operation to last just over a week, enough time to get all valuables out of state. However, if Kentucky wishes to join us, they will be accepted into the Confederation.

This is just part of a bigger picture though, with tensions rising in the north, the CSS needs to be the leading East Coast military power.

And so, Operation:Dirty South begins.

Seizure of all gold located in Fort Knox will occur, along with the seizure of all Abrams tanks, and artillery.

We don't expect much resistance since most people don't know how to operate this technology,let alone know where it is.
However casualties from last night were as follows:

Wounded: 27 (sprained ankles, broken legs, broken arms, etc.)
Killed: 2 (killed by disgruntled civilians)
MIA: 6

12 "rebels" were also killed.

Meanwhile, in the lands of the Far East:

-Ningxia Huizu has been secured (I've been erroneously calling this Chongqing Shi, which is a province is similar size and shape).
-The town of Yumen in Gansu has been reached, making the majority of the province secure, except for some outlying areas near Xinjiang.
-Shaanxi is under total control, but rebel elements still persist.
-Hangzhou continues, about half of that province is under control.
-Heilongjiang is being annexed, troops en route to Harbin.

The the navy has accepted the design the BAE systems presented and prodection of the newest guided missile cruiser has begun. Due to the secrecy, advanceness, and priority of production it will most likely cost a large amount of money and the design will not be revealed to the world until after the first of the 5 ships has been completed. The navy also requested BAE systems to possible design a new amphibious assault ship and possibly a new class of frigates to replace the aging frigates that we currently use. The air force is considering replacing its aging Tornadoes with possibly more Euro Fighters or maybe even F35 As. Although Parliament is undecided on the issue, it will most likely allocate the funds to replace the Tornadoes.

In The Commonwealth...

Parliament deems it necessary that the people will need to pay less taxes. So, there will be an all around tax cut for the people, but especially for small businesses. This is only made possible because the investment of BP has paid off, and the drilling in Africa has led to a huge increase in profits. Its predicted earnings will also rise to an all time high. We will also begin the construction of newer nuclear reactors and begin opening efficient solar facilities. Wind energy has been deemed un-efficient and will not be research nor invested in any more. The production of the new Recluse-Class Cruiser has started and BAE systems will be constructing the ships in prefabricated segments. So far of the begining batch of 5 ships, the first segment of one ship is nearing 25% completion. The ship will not make its appearance to the world until after finishing sea trials. Finally there may have been possibly some terrorist activity in Ireland, but little is known about the issue. To calm the area down we will begin to mobilize the Irish military to protect the people from possible further attacks. British SAS are also being mobilized in the event of any further major terrorist attacks. The police forces around Britain will also be warned and more alert in the event of any bombings.

Type 2 Cruisers have officially entered production as of today, and the keel of the lead ship has been laid down. Speaking of shipyards, Finland's already expansive shipyards are being upgraded and expanded extensively, hopefully to allow for double the current build capacity.

A new primarily tech-based think group has been founded, with the goal of researching advanced radar and stealth (as well as possible counter-stealth) technologies. This research will take quite some time.

In the mean time, the UFS's JAS 35 Gripens have begun a period of overhaul to extend their useful life, as well as add an advanced data-link.

The UFS has today granted the funding of a new intelligence agency specializing in espionage, counter-espionage, and other secretive things. We are scouring the country for the best possible agents.

In terms of economy, a massive new infrastructure project has been put in place to improve highways, airports, power plants, and public places. Special attention is being focused on green energy, specifically nuclear power.

An incremental order for 300 C5A tanks (to be delivered over a 6 month time frame), as well as orders for 1,000 C220 IFVs, 1,500 M113A5s, and a large yet unspecified numbers of C106 GPMRVs. This is a long awaited re-equipment that has been lagging for years, and with the combined GDP and military needs of all the UFS countries, it is finally possible.

To help counteract this type of increased spending, especially in the public's opinion, a health care and welfare bill is in its infant stages. Military incentives are an important part of this new bill.

Modernization of T-64s (and some T-55s) is complete, and thorough testing will be done over the course of the next several days. If they prove up to spec with other tanks currently in use around the world (as expected), they will be deployed to Panama ASAP. The next vehicle to be upgraded is the SU-100 Tank Destroyer. This 90 year old dinosaur will be fitted with surplus US 155mm howitzers, and an autoloader similar to that on M1 Abrams. 20mm thick sheets of steel plating will be welded onto each of the tank’s surfaces, with proper accommodations made for hatches. The fuel tanks will also be encased under this plating, and to reduce vulnerability more so Explosive Reactive Armor will be fitted to the frontal armor. A mount for a PPK Machine gun will be placed in back of the roof of the crew compartment, for use by tank riders. A new communications package will be added, along with Thermal optics to be configured for use with the new gun. An advanced commanders hatch will also be included in this upgrade.

As Cuba and her regarded allied states press into foreign affairs and supposedly progresses into technologies not well acquainted with nations in "hibernation" from the outside world, the South has initiated an assault to neutralize the future "threat".

The Southern aid ships sent to relieve some of the strain on Cuba were merely a guise for forceful mobilization. The vessels managed to head home [which was stricken odd by the Cuban observation craft] as four Ohio-class submarines headed for unfriendly waters. After making a relative distance from ship to shore to target, the submarines fired several missiles to eliminate the infant nuclear reactors under construction. Because of the severe age and lack of new-age technologies, Cuban air defense platforms were unable to eliminate any of the missiles before they struck said reactors. Severe damage was done to all three of these reactors and they are of course neutralized from progression.

During all of this haste and confusion, several Southern UAVs were able to penetrate the Cuban skies. They flew over Havana to designate key targets [such as AAA, troop concentrations, airfields, etc.] that were then eliminated by a stealth air wing. Four B-2 bombers, with fifteen F-22 Raptors escorting them, managed to inflict serious damage to the unsuspecting foe; a 86% success rate has been reported. Only minor damage was done to the covert air operation; two UAVs were spotted and fired upon leaving them to ditch in the waters upon return home.

En suite, apparently four more subs of the same class had begun firing TLAM volleys upon the enemy. One of the subs was informed to merely engage the escort ships sent to intercept the Southern aid vessels; only two Cuban vessels managed to limp back to relatively safe waters. The other three Ohio-class subs lit up the coastline with the aforementioned targets in mind. Known and obvious military ports and air bases were stricken with such might that a cohesive rally wasn't met until afterwards.

Presently, the South is on high-alert with full mobilized defense in effect. Air and maritime penetration from Cuba will have a hard time breaking the dense number of men and pieces of kit assembled within the South.

Conclusively, Cuban casualty numbers are unknown but obviously quite substantial [likely in the several hundreds range]. The lack of sufficient or working warning systems like AWACS and quality ASW kits has dealt a defining blow to former isolationist state of Cuba.

This is a message to the state of Cuba:

Breaking your isolationism, I thought, was a step in the right direction, then things obviously went south. With America as unstable as it is,we can't have an oppressive nation only 90 miles away from Florida, that is a threat to us, or any of our allies. Obviously controlling Panama and building a nuclear program is a start to becoming a global superpower that can control Gulf waters, and the surrounding area.

Firstly, I would like to state that our involvement in Operation Just Cause II is merely to support Brazilian forces. It has already been decided through negotiations that the CDC will gain no land or basing rights from our assistance. The only benefit to this operation is free use of the Panama Canal. I never claimed it. Secondly, I don't understand what you mean when you bombed my "infant reactors". I never started construction, nor did I even select any sites for construction. I merely considered building them and the effects they may have on the environment. I have no intentions to begin a nuclear weapons program, and I would fully welcome inspectors from any nation to supervise to production of my nuclear research and energy facilities. I apologize for the large size of my military. Cuba currently has 1,500,000 personnel, and it's current budget makes up 64% of Cuba's GDP. Discharging too many troops would have a serious impact on my economy, as it would add a huge amount of men to the unemployment line. I am slowly downsizing my military, to strive for quality over quantity, but this cannot be accomplished overnight. As to my escort vessels, I merely sent a party of my customs department to insure that there wasn't any hazardous materials being shipped into my territory. My troops are being ordered to cease fire, and assist repairing and tending to civilian damage. I have no intentions to fight you, Will, nor do I have any intentions to conduct any offensive operations after my supportive actions in Panama are over. I believed that you and I were on better terms, what with the AACA and all. I truly hope that we can avoid further conflict, and someday become allies, however I need your cooperation. This war will not be pleasant for either of us, however if this is about prestige I doubt you'll gain any from conquering 4 of the poorest countries in the world. If need be, my people are fully prepared to defend their homeland, and their opportunity for a new life under the CDC. They will not be stripped of their dignity again (this is coming from a guy who's family was stripped of their culture when Castro took over). Each and every one of my citizens is now preparing to do their part in securing their freedom and defending their pride, however not one of them wishes for the opportunity to arise. Please, don't do this to my people, to your people.

In The Commonwealth...

There has been a series of terrorist attacks in Ireland and our government has denounced the terrorist organization as evil and vile. Units of the SAS and MI6 will try tp penetrate the organization of Irish terrorists. This terrorist organization has failed to win the hearts and minds of the Irish people and will most likely die out due to lack of funding and support. Yet, we still deem them as a threat and will hunt them down methodically. We hope that the increase in awareness of the dangers of this organization will facilitate our catching of these terrorists. Parliament states pubically that funding for the British intelligence unit MI6 will increase. This will lead to more field agents, analysts, and equipment. The production of two more nuclear reactors has begun along with the production of Britain's largest solar field to this date. Finally BAE has decided that it will purchase more land for its facilities and will most likely create more shipyards. The government supports this endeavour and has decided to invest money into this venture. BAE has also promised that it will continue to support the Commonwealth's Military and has decided to devote much of its resources and facilities to contracts of the Commonwealth Military.

Firstly, I would like to state that our involvement in Operation Just Cause II is merely to support Brazilian forces. It has already been decided through negotiations that the CDC will gain no land or basing rights from our assistance. The only benefit to this operation is free use of the Panama Canal. I never claimed it. Secondly, I don't understand what you mean when you bombed my "infant reactors". I never started construction, nor did I even select any sites for construction. I merely considered building them and the effects they may have on the environment. I have no intentions to begin a nuclear weapons program, and I would fully welcome inspectors from any nation to supervise to production of my nuclear research and energy facilities. I apologize for the large size of my military. Cuba currently has 1,500,000 personnel, and it's current budget makes up 64% of Cuba's GDP. Discharging too many troops would have a serious impact on my economy, as it would add a huge amount of men to the unemployment line. I am slowly downsizing my military, to strive for quality over quantity, but this cannot be accomplished overnight. As to my escort vessels, I merely sent a party of my customs department to insure that there wasn't any hazardous materials being shipped into my territory. My troops are being ordered to cease fire, and assist repairing and tending to civilian damage. I have no intentions to fight you, Will, nor do I have any intentions to conduct any offensive operations after my supportive actions in Panama are over. I believed that you and I were on better terms, what with the AACA and all. I truly hope that we can avoid further conflict, and someday become allies, however I need your cooperation. This war will not be pleasant for either of us, however if this is about prestige I doubt you'll gain any from conquering 4 of the poorest countries in the world. If need be, my people are fully prepared to defend their homeland, and their opportunity for a new life under the CDC. They will not be stripped of their dignity again (this is coming from a guy who's family was stripped of their culture when Castro took over). Each and every one of my citizens is now preparing to do their part in securing their freedom and defending their pride, however not one of them wishes for the opportunity to arise. Please, don't do this to my people, to your people.


When someone comes to me with an explanation like that, I cannot refuse peace. I am truly sorry for the damage I caused your nation. It really was in part, to help you get a better country, the other 80% that swayed me to do this was actually taking you as a threat.

But, I suppose now that I have ruined a lot of your nation I owe you.

As for me attacking for prestige, I knew I was attacking the poorest nations in the world, and so it would be ridiculous for anyone to think so. I truly sensed you as a threat, I did not know Panama was a joint operation. If I had known, and payed more attention, this would've never happened.

Well, I didn't want to blow a good hour reading all that blather, so I have no clue what's going on here...

However, in the Western Confederation, things are going quite well. The old General Winscott retired today from head of the military council to be replaced by a younger man.

^ That's a fun bit of news I just made up...

Anyhow, the factories are about 50% done for tanks and aircraft. Crops are being harvested (retroactive for about 3 weeks ago) with a rather large bumper-crop of wheat. Civilian automobile manufacturing centers are also being asked to expand a wing to accommodate works for light utility vehicles while not interrupting normal production.

War Update:
-As soon as the sun rose, my UAV bombers from Jake took off toward Pearl. The Panamanians, however were expecting an Air attack and had set up a small air defense of their own. While the bombers were able to evade most of the AA, their escort was not as lucky. The 12 F-1s were blasted by SAM fire and had to turn back. The Bombers did get their job done, and took down a majority of the AA and SAMS, blasted Troop Concentrations and most importantly, the last of the Panamanian armor.
Command has deemed this first wave of bombing a Success, and it will continue through the day.

In The Commonwealth...

In London today there was a bombing done by the terrorist organization that calls themselves the ILG (Irish Liberation Group). Information about this bombing is sketchy at the moment, but what is known is that in the London Financial District a bomb was planted and detonated which killed 14 Londoners and injured many more. The ILG has claimed full responsibility for the attack; the methodical nature that this bombing was carried out shows the skill of the organization. Police forces and intelligence angencies around The Commonwealth have been warned and are aware of the threats. In major transportation hubs, security has been increased and there will be random searches of baggage. Hopefully our awareness and the cooperation of the people will facilitate our catching of these terrorists.

In other news BAE systems has officially announced that it will create 4 more advanced shipyards. We support this venture and the Royal Navy will order many more ships to help our long time business partner. The first order of business is to complete the already ordered first batch of the Recluse-Class Cruiser; whether or not another batch will be ordered is unknown. We have also asked that the company begins designing and researching for a new class of "boomer" submarine and a new class of stealthier attack submarines to compliment the already tested and reliable Astute-Class Submarines. Parliament is planning on reviewing the defense budget to see if there is any waste in spending. They will also review the need for a new fleet of long range bombers. Finally the up-gunning and up-armoring of the existing Challenger 2 tanks are 25% complete. It is predicted that the edition of ERA, more advanced Chobham Armor, and a smooth bore 140 mm gun will make the already effective Challenger 2 platform even better.

-In a fierce push this midday by Brazilian forces, David has been captured, and in a suprise attack by sea, we have taken the whatcha-ma-callit peninsula.
-However, the Panamanian Air Force took it's last breath earlier today, in a huge wave of 36 MiGs and other aircraft. They swarmed over the country but were beaten back and forced to land.
-In a suprise bombing by the Stealth UAVs, upwards of 85% of their planes were blasted inside-out. They surrendered later today.
-I plan on taking the rest of Panama in an epic charge later.

Wouldn't your revised drug policy be socially detrimental? The legalization of cannabis (despite some friction between views) is actually a smart move for stable and fairly homogeneous populations. This, along with government-assisted heroin treatment/rationing, generally reduces the provocation to turn to "harder" drugs in which cause severe personal damage. These "softer" drugs and those with rationed doses procured by the governance provide for a safe, controlled environment of recreational use with quite fewer drawbacks seen in illegal distribution. Plus, with these policies merely being passed in a term's time, they may be almost instantly repealed the date of active entrance if the populace gives a well-spoken and educated reason to do so (which is quite likely).

However, all of this is flipped with a rapid, heterogeneous population. Still, some food for thought.

I'd prefer you didn't. Gas weapons are rather indiscriminate and cause quite a few civilian casualties. Not only this, but gas weapons are "inhumane" in the sense that they're designed to be a slow, brutal killer.

Actually, the reason was it looked like such a futuristic weapon, that's why the later seasons of SG used it. :P

Also, the supposed reason was that since it was small, and the ammo itself was light, a large number of the weapons, and an even larger amount of ammunition could be taken with them on their trek.

But yeah, personal defense sub machine guns do not a good standard infantry weapon make.

Oh, I have no doubt it's a good weapon, it worked just fine against the human enemies in that show. But it would have been better for them to take a Thompson along with the .45 bullet than those peashooters against a regenerative opponent.

Actually, I would have sent back to earth for a couple old flamethrowers to take on a hive ship...

Regardless, on to the business at hand:

The Western Confederation has annexed Utah overnight pretty much. The citizens there weren't too happy about it, and didn't vote for it, but realized they couldn't do much to stop the WC. Their economy wasn't worth mentioning, so they are somewhat happy about the prospect of jobs. The large deserts will once again be used for testing grounds in the future.

The first new design has been tested and flown for an army attack helicopter. It takes all the best of the Cobra and Apache and bundles them into one machine; the UH-10 Bullmoose.

There was a major crack down on the Irish Terrorists and SAS, MI6, and local LEOs were able to infiltrate and eliminate the terrorist cell. All of the members that were caught will be given a fair trial and legal representation, but most likely they will be sentenced to life imprisonment. BAE has created the design for a new class of guided missile frigates and the Admiralty has approved the design. They are to be called the Hermes-Class. The current Typer-22 and Type-23 frigates will be put in reserve as soon as the first two batches of 6 of the Hermes-Class are completed. Production of the first batch will begin imediately and they will be licensed out to many companies. The expected completion of the first batch should be by New Years as long as Parliament gives the go-ahead. The designs will be held secret from public until the lead ship has passed sea trials. Finally BAE newest shipyards are nearly 25% complete. They are to be some of the newest and most advanced shipyards in the world.

Why not just upgrade the K2 into the K3 and call it a day? The FAMAS would be rather expensive to import or to produce in general taking in the factors of re-tooling and the like. Plus, it would take quite some time to re-acquaint the men with a bullpup rather than a forward-loading AR.

Anyhow, a Federation patrol in the Chechnya Oblast was ambushed today. The twelve men in the patrol were fired upon with an array of RPGs, PKMs, and AKMs. Nine of the Federation troops were killed in the thick firefight with the remaining three taken hostage; and of course the APVs were set alight. As of now, an SOF team has been sent in to track the captors and recover the boys taken. As it stands, more men, equipment, and supplies are being fed into the area as to prepare for another armed secessionist movement.

Also, in light of both negative and positive times and circumstances, the Russian Federation would like to create a defense ordeal with its Scandinavian neighbors. This would hopefully relieve any resentful tensions and free up our borders from military patrols in woe of any aggressive actions.

The CDC I Infantry Division and I Armored Division will be coming home from their successful campaign in Panama. After extensive debriefings, it has been determined that while the modernized T-64s were very effective, it would be more efficient to cancel the modernization of T-55s and reinvest into more M908A3s. We will be ordering another 200, and the 200 unmodernized T-55s will be transferred to reserve armored units. We will also begin replacing all of our heavier trucks with the more fuel efficient M42 Medium Support Vehicle (http://www.flickr.com/photos/25932414@N02/5156438199/). This vehicle will be manufactured at newly renovated Havana auto plants, and licensing agreements have been made to allow for sale in the civilian market. Our original order will be for 10,000 units, which would replace all older models in use as mobile SAM platforms, logistical vehicles, and personell transports. Work on desalinzation facilities is coming along very nicely, and we are expecting them to be complete by next week.

A great tragedy has been occured today on our soil. A band of 28 "Fidelistos" and Communist supporters attempted to seize control of the Havana International Airport. Police quickly were able to contain the facility, and a task force from the II Infantry Division (stationed nearby) inserted into the airport and engaged the terrorists. The entire situation lasted only 47 hours, and with zero friendly casualties all but 3 of the terrorists were killed. The surviving gunmen were taken to an undisclosed location for interogation, and it was discovered that they weren't Cubans at all, but actually former Soviet Union KGB officials. Two of them were executed without trial, and the remaining captive was sent to a special sector of the Guantonimo Bay prison. El Presidente has given a public speech to reassure the people of their safety, and that this will never happen again. A counter-terror branch of our intelligence agency has also been made, however it's details are still rather unclear. On a happier note, The CDC Armed Forces is looking for more effective means to defend our airspace from the increasing threat of air combat.

The new laws were passed over the weekend, effectively banning the use of all drugs within Dutch borders.

What has been called a "gross encroachment on dutch rights" was attacked by activists,both verbally and through and upturn of rioting. However, Dutch and Baltic forces were better prepared for the rioting this time and managed to keep it under control for several days.

But, what was not seen beforehand, turned out to be the worst of all. A car bomb went off in front of the Dutch capitol this morning. The blast was a large one, leading us to suspect a professional involvement in the case.

As of right now, at least 4 Dutch legislators are dead, and many more are injured, some in critical condition. In this time of Dutch crisis, Baltic action teams are now in full tracking mode, trying to find who did this. Holland has been placed under the full protection of the Baltic Union, and this is being dealt with as a crisis.

The Commonwealth would like to help our allies in the Baltic by possibly sending units of SAS Commandos that specialize in counter terrorism. This will make trade in the region safer and stabalize the region.

In The Commonwealth...

Parliament has approved of the production of two batches of six new Hermes-Class Guided Missile Frigate to replace existing Type-22 Frigates and as more are produced replace the newer Type-23 Frigates and has approved the defense bill. Which includes the design of a new MBT to replace the good, but aging upgraded Challenger 2 tanks and a new IFV with more AT capabilities that the Warrior. Designing will probably carry into early next year. The production of the first batch of Guided Missile Cruisers is going completely to schedule and will hopefully be completed and pass sea trials before Christmas. The design of the ship will be revealed to the public after the first ship passes sea trials. Finally the Royal Navy will be reorganized from the ground up, this will strengthen the navy and will allow The Commonwealth to most importantly defend our intrests with more power both abroad and at home.

With the end of the year approaching, the UFS has begun deliberations of its first defesne budget as a single country. Of course, this will take time, but anticipated to be included are upgrades for all current/last gen fighter aircraft (JAS 35 Gripen, F35A, F18, and F16) Unliaterally, all upgraded vehicles will be under the "F" designation for "Fφrbδttrad." Due to the rather high GPD of the UFS, we are also able to begin considerations of a next gen APC, as well as *possibly* a new attack helicopter. However, these two are on the "back burner" in terms of priority.

As could be expected for such a new nation, all three of the former countries now under the UFS still prove diverse, and (in the case of the Finnish people) feel slightly isolated in terms of culture and language. The Finnish representitives have proposed a bill to increase inter-region commerce and projects to hopefully increase a sense of unity that is currently somewhat lacking. It is undecided what the "official" language of the UFS shall be.

Representitives of the UFS in Iceland have begun talks of some kind on defense pact, while Iceland has no military and is generally of little use, due to the lack of attention by the ex-Danish government, the UFS has decided that we will make sure that Iceland remains a free and peaceful country well into the future. While little goodwill is needed, the UFS will be opening a new embassy in Reykjavic. Current talks are for trade and tourism agreements, but provisions for usage of the airport (as well as the old Keflavik AFB) will be offered. Icelandic reaction is unknown at this time.

The Type-2 cruisers continue along, and are now at roughly 15% completion. Modernization of all UFS member's shipyards (as well as expansion) is progressing quite well, and this project is now at 10% completion. The Type-4s for the UFS and Baltic Union are also around 20% completion.

In a move that shocked the global stock markets today, the UFS has taken direct control of such companies as Bofors and Patria (based in the UFS). We intend to always remain the main stockholders involved, and new oversight of said companies will be implimented.

He's in jail for sheer foolishness. The Emperor personally issued a statement of amusement at such antics, and DARES anyone else to bring their petty "terrorism" on.

Their govenor has retained his position, and he is doing his best to explain to his people that this is actually a good thing for them, considering what they were going through beforehand. Already, many have been hired for positions in factories that are being built throughout the state.

If you mean the stealth cruisers, those'll run about the price of Tom's, but if you mean some old Armada frigates such as the F-80 class or the F-100 class, I'll gladly look it up.

In The Commonwealth...

The RAF have proposed a plan that will eliminate all older Tornado and Harrier fighters and replace them with models of the F-35. As soon as Parliament approves this plan, production of the new replacement fighters can begin. The Tornados and Harriers will be slowly phased out and put in strage, given to reserve forces, sold, or scrapped. Parliament has approved the Royal Navy's newest plan to design and produce 2 larger carriers and to replace the current assault ships. This will be carried out by BAE and it is projected by early next year production should be complete. A bill has been passed that reduces taxes for all economic groups in The Commonwealth like promised. Since the pound is very much inflated at moment intrest rates will also be lowered to promote the people to spend and take out loans. This will hopefully stimulate the economy and deflate the pound. Finally the government will be investing in another BP drilling operation that will take place in Northern Africa.

The carrier will be sent in with a light convoy due to current situations in the area.(cough cough Mexico). If you would like, veteran mariners can give a several day training session with the future crew, since many will not have much experience. All for free, of course.

A quick check of global Uranium production/ location reveals that Indonesia has no Uranium on its islands. Considering the fact that by the year 2010 after 60 years of searching for the stuff, I would imagine that if no uranium has been found now, none would be found 26 years in the future. Sorry.

Also, its kind of suspicious when you start to implicate people in plots that they did not commence. When that sort of thing happens usually it has to go either through a combat mod or admin. One cannot say that a foregner/ foreign populus suddenly decides to be hostile. Some examples where this would make sense would be Pakistan and India and North and South Korea.

In a shocking turn of events today in Oslo, a heavily armed gang of criminals attempted to rob a main bank. Normally, this is not noteworthy, but these people proceded to slaughter everyone inside, and continued their rampage, killing at least 7 police officers, and one UFS military police officer. The gang of 6 was finished off when rapid response city guards arrived and engaged in a pitched firefight. In addition to the police/ guards casualties, 36 civilians were killed and at least 50 more wounded. A full investigation into their cause has been launched, but from early reports it would appear that they were not pleased by the UFS's acquosition of Norway. It is unknown how the individuals came into posession of such lethal assault weaponry. The officers who were killed will be buried with full honors and receive the Public Service Medallion (the UFS's highest civilian honor).

War Update:
Ground forces have made a push north toward Santa Elena, complete with full air support. They met moderate resistance and lost one Leopard and 2 EE-11s. They linked up with the airbornes and cleaned out the town by late afternoon. 
The Air force wasn't as lucky though. The Air force sent 12 F-2s, 12 F-1s, an A/C 130, and 8 A-7s. Shortly after noon they detected a large wave of Aircraft coming in and prepared to defend the slower AC 130. The aircraft ended up to be 18 F-16s, and 24 Su-30s. Although heavily outnumbered the Brazilian aircraft relied on modern technology and their somewhat stealthy profile to keep them safe. A total of 6 Su-30s and all the F-16s were shot down before the Venezuelans ordered retreat. But Brazil wasn't without losses, 6 F-1s and 2 -2s were shot down. The pilot of another F-2 was forced to bail and was recovered behind allied lines. The AC-130 and A-7s had minimal damage and continued to wreak havoc on the Venezuelans until it finally had to return to Panama.

It's all very well using your assault boats and my amphibious tanks, but if we want to really finish them off quickly and with less casualties we might want to send spec ops squads into their territory to take out all of their triple A batteries, that way we can send in chinooks to drop off tons of our troops quickly without being shot out of the sky.

Maybe instead of Spec Ops, we could use an airstrike to take out the batteries.

Oklahoma is 1/4th of he way secure tonight. Commanders are more concerned with securing the border to the east with Arkansas and Missouri than anything else, for we foresee trouble on that front.

In Portland, the first batch of the HAT-1 Mk.II has been created. They will be created in batches of 15, to ease the load.

In the CDC, things are progressing very nicely. Our desalinization facilities are now completely finished. These projects have been a major success, and water shortages are now a non-issue on our island states. Plans for 25 new plants are being made for mainland Cuba, and we expect this will end water shortage issues and help grow our agricultural industry. Also, Cuba's former healthcare system has officially been extended to cover Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and 200 small medical clinics are being built all around the country. Also, we will be having a large scale air-defense exercise today to determine in what fields we must improve. We are inviting any nation to participate and test our defenses with their best aircraft in order to help us improve.

The green sword group are no more

Our chinooks lauched from air bases in Sorong and flew over the Pegunungun Maoke without AAA resistance and landed 50 miles short of their bases, on the border of East and West New Guinea. There, Matts and my troops advanced, me from the west, Matt from the east, and encircled the Green Sword. A few of them surrendered but most were killed in the onslaught. Other smaller bases are reported to be breaking up and it's members dissipating, now that they're leaderless.

East new Guinea is now officially Indo Union territory. We are having a Victory parade through Jayapura today.

Russia graciously accepts both offers; that of peace and of the fisheries. Whatever is required for any of our joint causes is at your disposal.

In other news, an ultimatum was granted by a supposedly independent Caucasus Republic in safeguard by the International Islamic Peacekeeping Union. The latter of which is an infant organization known to support the independence and unification of all Islamic republics; in which case utilizes armed force to do so. Therein, the assault, capture, and slaughter of a Federation patrol has been traced to this organization. Thus, the IIPU in partake with the Caucasus Republic has essentially initiated the Third Chechen War.

In retaliation, the Russian Federation has begun an artillery bombardment upon UAV-designated targets held within enemy hands. These attacks began at 0400 hours EST this morning and have resulted in the neutralization of several forward scouting posts within the hostile terrain. Formal firefights within the northern border of the republic have been noted with some thirty casualties being sustained thus far.

At any rate, the military capital thus placed in and around the de facto republic is in effect engaged in a full-blown military campaign. This war will hopefully conclude the destruction of the radical Islamists and sectionalists within the area, and in turn stabilize the area once and for all.

Venezuela: The war goes well. Yesterday a force of 2,000 men with Full support crossed over the border and took San Carlos. They then proceeded to advance another 50 miles into thin rainforest, but have been slowed almost to a standstill by thicker foilige. Santa Elena is fully secured and the men in Santa Elena have started to establish an artillery and AA battery in the Airport. It is becoming the Forward Command Center. C-130s are flying in with troops to strengthen the forces already there. The Venezuelan AF hasn't appeared lately and it is being presumed that they are stationed on the other side of the Amazon.

The Western Confederation has finished construction on 5 aircraft factories. 6 vehicle factories were completed earlier. Production is set to start and research is beginning.

Two factories are under construction in and near Salt Lake City, providing thousands of construction jobs in addition to the thousands of permanent employment projected to follow their completion. This is helping to endear the locals, who are providing all the manpower.

The port works in Texas are about 75% complete in all but one area, and that is not far behind at 70%. The WC is eagerly awaiting the delivery of the carrier purchased not long ago, trusting fully that previous group's diplomatic relations will not spill over into here.

We are still awaiting a response to our request for compliance from the Eastern states regarding situations in Mexico...

The IU has also begun constructing factories on the outskirts of Jakarta and now in Jayapura and Sorong (cities in East New Guinea). Other than that we have very little exciting news. Plans for new military bases in New Guinea are underway. Now that New Guinea is taken, we are concentrating our military efforts on guarding our current territories rather than quickly trying to invade new islands within Indonesia, and we probably won't for some time.

You actually live in Alaska? Nice, I live in Colorado, and I claimed that too. On that note:

Denver, Colorado has been established as the capital city of the Western Confederation. Said government would like to ask the Alaskan government for what might quaintly be called an alliance. More like a trade proposition for the future? What say ye?

I'm definitely on!

Right on! Well, we don't exactly border each other, but we may someday.

Need anything in particular? Alaska's pretty self-sufficient though...

Because I just went to the ND-Army game. And it was awesome.
It was a complete let down.

In the CDC, air defense exercises are complete. After thorough analysis, it has been determined that a full revamp of our entire air force and air defenses is in order. We have purchased several A-10a Thunderbolt IIs from Florida, along with F-35s and F-22s. We will be working very closely with aerospace engineers from the former US to reverse engineer these aircraft, and hopefully develop 2 decent planes for ground attack and air superiority roles. To help support this project, we are investing heavily in a large airplane plant in Puerto Rico. Also, the CDC Army is working on designs for a new Vulcan-like air defense system.
