Communist Takeover

An Ahrana Today Special Broadcast

Tonight on Ahrana Today (AT) we have a special edition of the Communist Takeover. It is important to know and understand how regimes rise and fall, tonight we focus on the new Government of Ahrana, the Communist. In order for us to truly understand we must go back to where it all begun and see why the movement was so successful. Now time to show the world why the Communist are here.


05 July 2016

Stokgol'm, Dukedom of Tata

Farming District #21

In 2016 tension in Tata was brewing, the local Farmers had just made it through another crop harvest with barely enough crops to keep for themselves after the sell. That year a series of droughts took place killing over half of the Crop fields that year. Many Famers refused to go to the Sell with their Crops as it was barely enough to last them a season of winter. Those who refused were arrested and trialed and sentence to a labor cam where most died except two Farmers. Mishka and Michal survived the Camp. Upon their return they created a movement now known as the Workers' Movement. 

For months the Workers' Movement met and each time more and more people showed up to the meetings. At these meetings local Politicians were asked to come and listen to the grievances of the Workers. Most politicians agreed that something had to be done, while the other refused to show up afraid of committing treason in the eyes of the Government.

2017

A year had passed and the creation of the Social Democratic Alliance Political Party was done. The Party won the majority of the Districts in the Dukedom of Tata which gave them control over the Dukedom through evolved powers through the Federal Government. It wasn't long that the Alliance registered to run in the Federal Parliament. It was unknown at the time if they would be allowed to run in the Parliament Elections as they were still new to the table.

 

03 September 2017

Moskovo, Lordship of Ahran

Parliament of the Kingdom of Ahrana

On the day of elections the Party campaigned harder than most Parties did, which in the long run paid off for them. They had gained the Majority of the Parliament and were given the opportunity to create the Chancellery. While they had a majority they created a Coalition Government with the Hardline Communist and together they created the Kingdoms First Left-Wing Government in the History of the Kingdom.

Within Days they had a Government approved by the Monarch and begun their term in the Chancellery Office. The New Government was strictly against Corruption and fought corruption all the way till the end. The Ahranaian Government was filled with so much Corruption that it was unclear if anything good would come out of the end process of corruption fighting. Within a Month the Federal Government had been purged of the majority of its Ministers and Personal due to the finding of Corruption. The Social Democratic Alliance then begun what is to be known as Plug and Plot.

 

04 October 2017

Stokgol'm, Dukedom of Tata

The Center

The Social Democratic Alliance called forth the first Congress of the Party stating that all members must attend this urgent Congress of the Party. The Chancellery was present in the Congress but with the events taking place inside the Congress the Prime Minister felt disillusioned with the Party. With the events in the first half of the Congress the Prime Minister and the rest of the Chancellery walked out of the Congress stating that "this is not why I ran under the Banner of the Alliance." 

With the information on what the Party planned he begun a series of attempts to ban the Party from the Parliament. Many Political Parties had sided with the Alliance due to the Alliance Party Heads placing blasphemy against the Prime Minister and the Chancellery. With his failed attempts he took the case to the Courts and the Monarch. The Courts ruled against the Prime Minister and the Monarch was the only Party in the mess that believed him. The Monarch however was powerless in the eyes of the Parliament and was barred to make and Political Ruling as he was a Neutral Body. The advise from the King was to resign from the Party and govern as an Independent till the next elections. The Entire Chancellery had resigned from the Social Democratic Alliance stating that the Chancellery had grown disillusioned with the Party and would govern as an Independent Party till the next Elections.

 

 15 November 2017

Dukedom of Tatani

The Dukedom of Tatani held its elections a whole year early which resulted in creating instability in the region. In the Northern Two Districts of Orkdalen and Stjørdalen Militants seized control and started a War. It wasn't seen at the time but the Alliance had created these Militants as a start to the ultimate plan. The Militants and Ahranaian Military fought for weeks till peace talks begun. It was around this time that the Social Democratic Alliance resigned from the Parliament thus leaving a power vacuum in the Parliament. With the resignation of the Alliance the Hardline Communist, Nationalist and Socialist banded together to finish the master plot. The King was to fly over the Airspace of Stjørdalen and that's when a missile would be launched and that the now formed Communist Militants/Militia would emerge from the shadows of all plots. The Militia claimed responsibility for the assassination of the King and stated that if the Royal Household left the country the same would befall to them. 

The Queen Regent was crowned Queen and the countdown of the clock started. Within Days the Communist emerged in Tatani from the undercover cells as Militants of Tatani and took over the entire Dukedom. Tata was the Stronghold of the Communist so from the start it was flat out under their control unknowingly. The Farmers soon backed the Communist and they enlisted or those who could into the Peoples' Army. Little did the Ahranaian Government know that a defector from the Ahranaian Army which was now the General of the People's Army, bribed all that would accept the bribe in the Ahranaian Military. The Royal Regimental Guards however killed any who tried to bribe them as they were strictly loyal to the Royal Household. 

 

07 December 2017

Somewhere over Stjørdalen

The Kings plane was blown while traveling to Ivercia for the Official State Visit of the King. Barely any remains were found except a few bones. It was concluded that the majority of the bones evaporated on blast due to the jet fuel and the missile itself.

 

11 & 12 December 2017

Moskovo Palace

The Royal Household gave the order for evac to the ancient capital of Peterburi, the Archive and non-major royals would be sent ahead of the Queen and the King Regent. The Archives never made it along with the Other Royals. They all fell into the hands of the Communist. On the 12th the Queen and the King Regent headed for the Peterburi Palace which was to be the seat of the Monarchs Office till the end of the Communist Insurgence. It wasn't expected that the entire town was under Communist Control, when the Queen was just 20 miles from Peterburi their was an ambush by Communist. All of the Royal Regimental Guards were killed and the Queen was place under arrest by the will of the People. 

The Queen was then informed of the situation by other Royals placed under arrest, the Military had been bought out and the only Loyal forces were the Federal Police and Royal Regimental Guards. With the Colonel-in-Chief in the hands of the Communist protocol mandates that the Royal not under control of Militants or terrorist should be protected at all cost. The Police surrendered to the Communist through radio communication. The Guards left to protect Lady Madeleine which was in Ivercia at he ATARA Ceremony. However, the Lady had already left the Ceremony with the reaming Royal Regimental Guards by the time the Militia sent for her. It is unclear where she had vanished to but it will ultimately be the deciding factor in the trial of the reaming Royals.

The Capital was then left for the Communist to March into and establish the Communist Government. The Communist gave 72 Hours for those of Foreign Nationality or birth to leave before they entered the City on the 15 December 2017. 


There you have it the basic information on how the Communist came to power in Ahrana. The Communist will be entering the Capital on the 15th which by the time they enter no Aircraft will be permitted to enter or leave the Kingdom without approval of the Communist Intern Government. 

That is all from us here at the Ahrana Today Station in Stokgol'm please celebrate in the victory of the Communist! The People are now in control of their Government.

Situation Room- Palá dei Primo, Intreimor

Primo of the Republic, Franso E. Deitorr massaged the dark circles beneath his eyes that had been growing over the course of the week.

Just minutes ago, he had been pulled out of bed by another emergency notification. On top of examining the situation in Afropa, reviewing proto-policy for the Ultramares integration, and handling all the other Primeal duties he was expected to fulfil--Deitorr felt the onset of his fatal aneurysm building behind the aching left side of his cerebellum.

"Ahem, my Primo-", a brave general seated to his right ventured.

"Do it.", said Deitorr, massaging his temples.

"Understand sir, that this could possibly escalate. What these revolutionaries wouldn't do cannot be underestimated", continued the general.

"Sir, such an aggressive response could provoke skirmishing or Taco-forbid-", interjected the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs who was seated directly in front of Deitorr.

"Don't condescend, Manuel", Deitorr interrupted.

"I understand the implications. But if these commie menstrual run-off roaches "accidentally" shoot down their own king, there's no assurance that their forces will do exactly as their administration has promised. They have just allowed passage of all aircraft, military included. I plan to exploit that opportunity to its fullest. We are taking no risks  here."

"Ferran, how soon until they deploy?", said Deitorr, turning to face the Capo-General.

"Fighter elements from the 12th Fighter Group are ready to put wings-to-clouds, my Primo. After conducting an air-sweep for any potential SAM sites and enemy air patrols, we should be able to find a good corridor for the evacuation elements. Speaking of, we have eight E-9 Toro being prepped for the evac elements. Léon Air Base tells me that they will be ready to fly in 180 mikes", replied Capo-General Ferran Arnau Macharius.

"What about the ground elements?"

"SO/AR has been activated and is awaiting-signal to HALO in. The operation plan is all here, my Primo", Macharius signalled to his aide--who offered a black binder to Deitorr.

"We have all units issued special rules of engagement. All Ahranian military units are to be presumed hostile, but we shan't fire unless fired upon, all deployments, landings and take-offs will be conducted as presuming combat conditions", Macharius added.

After a few tense minutes filled with nothing but the sound of Deitorr flipping through pages, the Primo drew a pen from his coat pocket and signed.

"Bring them home Ferran."

Monsieur le Président du Conseil” said a Maître d’Hôtel, waiting for Mécra’s signal, “I know” responded Mécra as he was looking down, on a few pieces of papers he just has been working on tonight with his entire cabinet. Effectively, last evening, the usual Presidential Dinner was scrapped by the ongoing crisis in @Ahrana , with the new communist Government having raised to power and the strange destruction of the King while he headed towards Iverica the 7th December. Since the afternoon in Fleur de Lys timezone, things have advanced much faster with effectively the Communists having announced their intention to, from the 15th December, prevent any aircrafts to move out in the Capital and giving 72 hours for the foreigners to move out of Ahrana. Ambassador Jacques Durand-Guigon of Ahrana has been maintaining a direct line along Mécra since days now, in order to see the evolution of the crisis. And now, the time to act had come. “Monsieur ?” asked the Maître d’Hôtel, “Mmh” sighted Mécra with a sign of the head, making the Maître d’Hôtel open the doors and discover behind those heavy doors in wood, an Assembly of men and women which were in fire and debating about the stance to take considering the new communist outbreak, with major divisions in the Société Ouverte party, Mécra’s party. The Head of the National Assembly, Adeline Sassant took her hammer as the Président du Conseil entered and called for silence, with her strict and powerful voice, coming out from her like a waterfall crushing on the ground. It only took a couple seconds for the Deputies to sit down and be calm, allowing the Président du Conseil to take place behind the desk. “Cough cough”, Mécra was testing his voice and acoustic of the large room, as he wasn’t used to debating that much in that as he never been Deputy before, and you had to get a powerful voice to be hear, as microphones weren’t put in place. “Madame la Présidente de l’Assemblée Nationale, Deputés, Monsieur le Maître de Séance, Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires Militaires et Stratégiques, Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires Extérieures et Commerciales, salutations” he started, pushing himself slowly but surely in the bath. “You have been aware of the of the current situation in Ahrana by Minister Richard. 72 hours, counting from now is the time we have to evacuate our fellow citizens in Ahrana, this is at least what the Communist Ahranan Forces have been stating. In consultation with the Cabinet, the Republic of Fleur de Lys still recognises as legitimate Government of Ahrana the Kingdom of Ahrana. I have to say that we are open to dialogue and the establishment of a new Government and State in Ahrana which the Republic shall recognise if some conditions are meet, such as the holding of democratic and free elections under foreign observations and the respect of all ethnicities and minorities in alignment with the Venège Convention” he marked a break, in order to let the National Assembly integrate just what he have been proposing, which is very much new compared to most reactions today by the international community. “We have around 4 000 citizens currently visiting or remaining in Ahrana” he was starting to show the facts, “Along an Embassy of 125 personnel, including 50 soldiers from the Force Étrangère and naturally the Ambassador Jacques Durand-Guigon”, now Mécra had to answer to the challenge, with his proposal, as it had to pass through the National Assembly. He cleared his throat, took a sip of water, and pursue, “I propose a Motion to be voted, a Motion for the sizing of 3 Magenta, 12 Autun and 2 Concorde planes from Air France company in order to support the evacuation with our Force de l’Air, to have onboard Force Étrangère military in order to secure the evacuation. Those numbers I have advanced were calculated by the availability of those planes in the hour, and if agreed by the National Assembly, the Opération Hermès would cost an estimated 200 millions Francs, which I think isn’t our main preoccupation. Certainly we would be over the number of places needed for our citizens, but we would also allow the evacuation of other nationalities. If agreed, within the 50 hours the totality of the Lysians would be evacuated following their localisations through Ahrana. The Lysian Embassy would also still be kept open, and even after the 72 hours deadline made by the Communists Forces, as the Republic does not recognise them as legitimate for the time being. Supplies would be brought to the Embassy in order it to allow the pursue of its activities for at least a year before having to be in a critical supply situation, and as the Embassy is autonomous when coming to telecoms, Ambassador Durand-Guigon ensured me this was his will” he finished, having in front of him an audience which was doubting. “I propose that we vote now” screamed a Deputy, “Agreed” said another one, with a massive reply by the public. “Silence, silence !” ordered once more the Head of the National Assembly, Miss Sassant. “Debate is ended” she retook, as it made hours they have been talking about it, “The Motion #MAEC-CCXXV-F-XXIV-I for response to the Ahrana Civilian Crisis, Lysian position and evacuation plan is put under vote” she marked with another shot with her hammer. The results would be known only in a couple minutes, allowing each of the 50 Deputies to vote, starting with the First Circonscription, “Monsieur le Député de la Première Circonscription Mécra” she started, “En faveur de la Motion” responded Mécra as he was coming back to his seat in the National Assembly. “Madame la Députée de la Seconde Circonscription Zolia”, “En faveur de la Motion” and going on, going on… “The results of the Motion #MAEC-CCXXV-F-XXIV-I, 39 in favour, 3 neutral, 8 against. The Motion pass”.

The Communist Takeover

Moskovo Government Palace


As the Communist gave the World 72 Hours to evacuate Foreign Nationals and those of Foreign Birth, as it has now been a Day the clock has been ticking down. With now 48 Hours left as promised of the 72, the Communist Militia has not entered the Capital and wont till midnight on the 15th. The Communist Intern Government will be entering the Capital Today to be the mediator for all Government activities till the 20th when the first elections will be held and when the new Constitution will take effect till the regime falls.

With the Nations of the World acting in fear of the new Regime wondering what their next move would be, the General which is the Intern Governments Chairman of the Federation, General Natasha Lusko, released a statement to the World:

"People of the World, Citizens of the Federation and others. The Communist Regime is the rightful successor to the Kingdom of Ahrana, by the will of the People we have revolted against the Monarchy that ruled with Tyrannical Powers and took Power from the People to ensure their own will was met. The People grew tired of the oppression of the King and his Heirs, they wanted a Government that represented them and took their ideas and needs into consideration. Did they get that? No! When the people revolted it was due to a corrupt Government that beyond saving as the Social Democratic Alliance put it.

We, the Communist, the voice of the People stood where the Monarchy wouldn't; in places filled unimaginable scenes that would sock the World if they were shown to outsider eyes. With the World in the state it is in I do not believe what many Politicians say its difficult. The Trials of the Monarchy and the family will start today at the Judicial Palace under a Twelve Judge Panel. For only one time we will allow a jury to be present and pass the verdict. The Royals will all face the dame Charge, Corruption and Crimes against the People. The Trial will last for two day by then the jury will have a verdict. After the verdict no matter the charge the family will not be permitted to leave the Country, they will be sent to a secure location and will live out their remainder life in peace away from public eye.

The World can rest easy while evacuating their People from Ahrana, however we ask you to reconsider. As a Foreign National under the Constitution you are given your right plus the rights of your Mother Country. As promised however, we will not open fire on any Civilian or Aircraft unless fired upon. If any Embassy wishes to stay open then they are allowed to do so, we only as that you do not smuggle out any Ahranaians that were born in Ahrana it will be considered illegal and the Embassy could be shut down due to illegal activities. We ask that all act in a nice and calmly manor while the evacuation is happening, we do not need any injuries or deaths will the process is going on.

We also ask that the Missing Royal Family member be brought back to the Federation to face the trial and to put the Family at ease with the issue. If the Royal is not found, it is unclear what the Court will say when the Verdict is issued.

Thank you all and have a great day."

The Communist Government has been working night and day to find the missing Royal as they wish to not have to make any drastic decisions regarding the Royal Family as the Family is respected by many Communists since they are technically the Elder Politicians of the Land. However if she does not return then the charges on the family could multiply and the idea of a retirement can not be promised to the Royals.

Colegard Palace, throne room.

Adrian Colegard seated on his throne as imperial servants gathered in a semi circle around the throne, blocking the way towards him.

"Let him enter!" Adrian shouted towards a pair of manservants that immediatly opened the giagntic bronze door that led to the throne room.                               An imperial speaker entered the room as the door was being closed behind him. He reached the center of the room and kneeled.

"You may stand up, what is the situation?" Asked Adrian Colegard

"Your highness, our embassy staff have been safely evcuated with the few astriedanians that were visting Ahrana, nobles and citizens alike. Lady Septimia Aïl is safe and the IESB agents that were undercover as embassy staff were extracted too. House Merter informed that their planes left the ahranain airspace a few minutes ago, the Tempests of the IAF are ready to takeoff in case of an agression by communist forces..." said the imperial speaker.

He then continued in imperial language so that only the Emepror (and technically the servants) could understand him:

"Also, the Imperial External Security Bureau warned it's agent of a possible future operation, they are on high alert and its undecover agents in Ahrana are ready to be extracted if needed." He then bowed down and made a few steps back to indicate he was finished.

Adrian took a few seconds to think about what was currently goind on in Ahrana. Of course he and the Imperial Council were supporting the legitimate royal governement of Ahrana but Astriedan couldn't afford to go to war right now, its army was still too weak and inexperienced. Adrian's main goal was to avoid a diplomatic incident with the royal family while avoiding war with the communist.

"For now, let's be quiet but make sure that our forces, and especially the imperial guard and the IAF are ready to be deployed, if there is any way to place the legitimate governement back in power while avoiding an attrition war we may stand a chance..."

0800 PST | 13th December 
Presidential Chambers, House of Parliament
New Halsham, Courtmarsh

 

President George Duval's secretary was always a busy woman, but as she arrived into the office on the morning of the 13th of December she found that her email inbox was particularly overflowing. It was as if all of the dams in the world had suddenly disappeared, leaving billions of tonnes of water to cause chaos amongst those below. There were thousands of messages to sort through, from official Ahranaian diplomats to refugees begging for help. 
The recent communist takeover had been somewhat expected, but still a blow. With the recent Circle of Death worries and the ensuing naval blockade, tensions between the two nations were high. The communists had given foreign citizens 72 hours to evacuate, and that took immediate priority over all other matters for the day. 
With her stomach in tight knots the assistant knocked gingerly on the president's door, entering upon his command.

"President, I'm sure you've seen the emai-"

"Yes, of course." President Duval was only halfway through his second cup of coffee for the morning, and thus his response was sharp and to the point. Bullsh*t had no place on his diary before noon. "It'll be a busy day today."

"Certainly. What's are your thoughts? Surely we cannot rush anything through parliament this quickly?"

"It could be attempted, but I doubt it. The northern MPs will be particularly reluctant to pass anything through so quickly, especially on something that's so out of the blue. It'll have to be an executive order to allow some refugees. We could possibly take two hundred, and have them in Southfort."

"And our diplomats? Foreign nationals?"

"Of course they're coming back!" Duval slammed his mug down onto the table, thinking that was obvious. His assistant, despite having held the job since the induction of parliament, was still asking him silly questions. "You think any of our MPs would refuse bringing back nationals? It's the refugees that'll cause a problem. Look, I'll speak to the advisors, hold an emergency meeting... you'll have an email by nine."


As per the email of President Duval, the United States of Prymont Air Force would be holding immediate evacuations of all Prymontian citizens residing in Ahrana, including government diplomats and casual residents. Ties with the Initiative Scientifique Trans-Continentale and the Argic-Thalassan-Alharun Regional Association meant that member states could hold residents in New Halsham temporarily until being transported back to their country of origin. This meant that countries such as Iverica, Fleur de Lys, Variota and the Sunset Sea Islands could hold legal residents in New Halsham for up to six months, before being required to transport them back to their country of origin.

When Ahranaian refugees were considered, matters became increasingly more complicated. Refugee laws meant that there were extremely tight limits as to how many refugees could enter the United States through legal means. For now, President Duval had placed a tentative limit of two hundred refugees, who would be held in Payson, Southfort, for a maximum of six weeks. From then on, they would have to be transported elsewhere - where that was, wasn't of concern to the government. The idea to smuggle refugees out of Ahrana had been considered, but was shot down quickly. Relations with the new communist regime could be positive if legal requirements were followed, but smuggling Ahranaians out of the country wasn't part of the current deal. Ahrana was already in turmoil - poking the dog with the stick wouldn't provide favourable results.

Prymont would also refuse to hold refugees that other countries were evacuating. Lysian officials had contacted the emergency meeting members to explore this option, but it was a quick open-shut case. The two hundred refugee capacity would be kept for refugees travelling directly from Ahrana on their own terms. Those flown in from other countries would be refused entry onto Prymontian soil. This was so Prymont could directly control who came into their country. If refugees were entering on foot via the southern border, they could be held at a secure station, where background checks could be issued and people could be rejected instantly. If Lysians, or any other nation for that matter, were to bring their own Ahranaian refugees, the infrastructure to check and ensure the safety of Prymontian citizens could not be implemented in time. There was not a stable support network either, and the public view of Ahrana had already been damaged due to the naval blockade. The possibility of allowing Circle of Death members unknowingly onto Prymontian territory was not worth the risk of upsetting allies.

For now, that was all the United States could offer. Evacuated nationals of allied countries could be held in New Halsham for a considerable amount of time, allowing for arrangements to be made to return back home. Refugees would be dealt with on foot at the southern border - anywhere else, and they'd be turned away.

This is a rather impressive parade here” commented a Lysian journalist with a helmet on, holding her microphone, as the camera was sizing behind her an impressive fleet of aircrafts, landing and taking off along few military and APC moving around. “The Force de l’Air has been holding many Air France aircrafts and for now, at 50 hours since the start of the 72 hours deadline, have been evacuating around 4 700 people from various citizenship thanks to Prymontian support and cooperation. The Force de l’Air also have been deploying forces around the airport in order to secure it along with other Nations which have decided to evacuate their fellow citizens. They shall soon be evacuated in order to meet the 72 hours deadline even if not clearly stated and recognised” she said, as the wind was getting stronger, having no real obstacles. But her monologue was broken as a Concorde took off, giving a powerful noise —more powerful than previous planes— which wasn’t satisfying for the television news. “The Lysian Embassy also have been supplied with another Section of 125 soldiers along further provisions and supplies” she commented as, on the side of her, another film appeared, showing the Lysian embassy with additional protections. “It’s been long since Lysians soldiers have been taking their armours in such critical missions. Opération Hermès seems to be for now a success, as the Communist Forces are approaching the city, the Lysian Embassy shall not be evacuated in order to open its doors to any citizen having not been able to catch the evacuation. However as the evacuation goes on, a massive issue just came, effectively some Ahranan politicians and citizens have been willing to evacuate too. For now, only flights from destination to Variota could transport Ahranan refugees, as effectively Prymontian authorities have made clear that the Ahranan refugees would be refused from walking on Prymontian soil, a statement which have been denounced by already many representatives and NGO leaders, which see such statement as totally irresponsible, letting people front a new authoritarian Government in Ahrana. The main issue is that Variota is 10 times farther then Prymont, which will cause the number of refugees to be drastically less important then if they were to be evacuated in Prymont” she commented, leaving it to the studios to add to that last terrific statement, which was scandalising many people, with reactions not awaiting on the social media. “Effectively, a hashtag #NotMyPrymont have appeared on the social media, heavily criticising the Prymontian stance. The Lysian Government have yet to react, as effectively @Prymont being a first-hand partner in the evacuation of the Lysians civilians along the supplies line for the Lysian Embassy in @Ahrana” commented a man behind a desk, in one of the Lysian studios.

-

Mécra was sit in his armchair within his office, as his cabinet was activating behind the heavy doors of his office, it already made 30 hours he hasn’t slept. The evacuation was going on rather well, but that Prymontian disagreement was rather a step back, fortunately for them, the Lysian Ambassador to Variota, Gérard Liuz, have been able to reach an agreement for hosting Ahranan refugees in @Variota. Mécra was thinking, and mostly waiting, waiting for the evacuation certainly, but everything would go well, most probably… So what? What was his concern? He was playing with his pen… At the same time, on the other side of the door, a proper military officer was advancing with an attaché-caisse, in regular military march, one of those stylish military march, which sounded natural but not real… Whatever, as he advanced, he arrived in front of a Maître d’Hôtel, “May you please tell his Excellency that I have an important matter” simply addressed the officer. The Maître d’Hôtel responded with an affirmative sign of the head, not willing to even ask the officer who he was or his identity, and moved into the entre-porte, and knocked on the door. “Yes?” exclaimed Mécra as he got a massive energy back. The Maître d’Hôtel slightly opened the door, “A Monsieur wishes to see your Excellency. He seems to be an officer” started the Maître d’Hôtel. “Which branch?” asked Mécra, curious if this was what he was waiting. “Force de l’Air Monsieur”. “Make him enter” immediately replied Mécra, being more than impatient to see what this officer had to say, to which the Maître d’Hôtel executed himself. Just a few seconds, and the officer would enter, “Je vous présente mes hommages” said the man as he saluted the Président du Conseil, and bowed. “Please, come” invited Mécra. The officer advanced until he got very close to the table of Mécra’s office, “May I?” asked the officer, to which Mécra responded with a gesture from his hand, calling him to do so. The officer, used, as the protocol wished, to remain to stand up, put his attaché-caisse on the table, put in the code, and opened it before turning it around to Mécra’s intention. “Opération Hermès II is going under the direct supervision of Capitaine Ferdinand” commented the officer, as Mécra was reading the files inside the attaché-caisse. “We have successfully proceeded of the evacuations of many Ahranan engineers and scientists, fearing the communist Government, they are to be secretly transported in Fleur de Lys” resumed the officer with pieces of information which were classified, to which Mécra reaction was a simple smile.

After giving the world only 72 Hours to evacuate the Civilians of Foreign Birth and Nationality, the Communist begun marching towards the Capital of the now declared Socialist Federation of Ahrana. The regime hoped that with the recent act of kindniss shown to the world that the Countries would see that the Ahranaian Socialist are not what they feared. 

As they marched to the Ancient City Gates at the Southeast end, something could be heard coming from the Marching Militia. They were singing the folk song, Bred är mitt modersmål. The City lights were on and illuminated the streets. The Militia Marched on to the Center of the Capital singing songs of the Motherland and of the Cause. Many of the People joined in with the Militia and begun singing and celebrating the arrival of the Liberators of the People. When the Militia arrived in the Center of the Capital General Matasha started speeking to the everyone in the Capital.

"Citizens of the Federation and the World! The Communist have arrived to take their rightful spot as the Official Government of Ahrana! For so long we, the People, have sat in the shadow of the Rich and Corrupt while we suffer at the hands of their displeasure. We the People having been forgotten in the eyes of the Royal Government, have risen to take what is ours! We have united as one as Brothers and Sister as our late Government wished us to do and we have accomplished the unthinkable, we now control these lands. We do, not the rich or corrupt but us, the proletariat! We shall run the Government and accomplish what they could not! We have arrived and we will represent the entire population of Ahrana and the newly formed Socialist Republics in this Federation. So I say to you all here tonight, rejoice and celebrate our Victory over the Bourgeoisie! Workers of the Federation and the World, Unite as One and show the World what the People want!

It is also clear that in the Ahranaian we have clear traitors to the people, some nations have evacuated Ahranaian Politicians and Citizens that were neither in possession of Duel Citizenship or Foreign Birth. The Communist Party issued mandates for the nations to follow and some have not followed them. This is unacceptable and something will need to be done about this by the Government.

We gave the World 72 Hours as promised, but now all Flights will be grounded and all Royal Government Offices are now closed. The Intern Government will now handle any grievances of Foreign Nationals who did not heed the 72 Hour Evacuation allotted to them. As for all Ahranaians, tomorrow starts a new Era in our Nations History and we will write it! "

Situation Room- Palá dei Primo, Intreimor

 

OOC: Wooo, military porn

After two hours, Deitorr still hadn't slept a wink. He had his aide bring in an extra-concentrated cup of Iverican Barakko and a hefty 200mg nootropic pill (typically issued to pilots). 

"Make sure my Executive Order gets through. We shan't look like paupers to the rest of ATARA. I want those 6 Peninsulaire aircraft ready to fly to pull our people out of New Halsham. The ones we can't take will have to stay around embassy lodgings--make sure to fly in the regular disaster relief packages. To do this I want Amphibious Strike Group General Luna mobilised and ready to make-wake in 4 hours. Contact the USP Navy, I'll be phoning in for permission myself as soon as its a godly hour. The sooner we're out of their hair, the happier they'll be, so having Luna out there in a peaceful extraction will hopefully not bother the @Prymontians too much."

"You, comms-sec guy! I want my comminque draft on this table in 30 minutes. What do you mean 'where is Luna going?'. Just out of Canamo of course! We aren't about to raise a Taco-damned row by putting a commando carrier inside foreign territorial waters! Stress that it will only fly relief packages in, and take refugees out. Nothing more."

"Ferran. How is the Operation progressing?"

"My Primo, SO/AR is 20 minutes out, they're ready to HALO drop in a park code-- DZ Alpha, just 1.5 clicks from the embassy. FLAIR 's12th Fighter Group is out in force assisted by elements from the 61st Logi Wing, we have 5 flights of Aguila and 5 flights of Halcon on airsweep and patrol. Two Kondors are on station, one on AWACS, another on refuel. A further 15 flights from three airfields are ready for QRF and reinforcement if need be. Any mobilisation from the Ahranian air force in significant strength will take some time to plan, prep, and take-off. As of now, we own the skies."

6R5d00mm.jpg

"What about SAM sites?"

"In the last hour, FLiR sweeps have marked the SAM-dense zones. High Command has consulted with WARD, we have a firing solution from callsign "Counter-Punch" in case they try anything, and we've picked the route carefully, low-risk for the evac elements."

zNcghv5m.jpg

"And Ground-Extract?" 

"After SO/AR is boots-on-ground, they will escort the embassy occupants in 5 separate motorised waves, the first three will clear all civilians first, as soon as the embassy staff have scuttled all the documents and electronics, they will be taken in the 4th. Ambassador Soley has requested that he be on the final wave, with his personal aides. The convoy will egress through the routes I've outlined on the dossier, all five will ensure that the same route is never used twice, a measure in case of "incident" or in case one route is suddenly blocked by debris or uncooperative Ahranians. The routes will take them to the airport, where a break-off team of SO/AR will be garrisoning one terminal and an airstrip, setting up MANPAD and fixed positions. The E-9's will be on station escorted by several flights of our own fighters, landing sequentially to load civies as quickly as possible. Ideally, SO/AR will extract on the last aircraft after scutling all the embassy vehicles used by the convoys. If this becomes impossible, Plan B is to extract using the Skyhook ."

oFMrKqkm.jpg

"Keep us informed Ferran", Deitorr Said, nodding.

"Yes, my Primo"

 

OOC: If anyone is wondering why the response is so strong: Bear in mind, these people plotted the assassination of their King and passed it off as some sort of accident.

The Communist Takeover


As the Communist Government begun to take control over the Government of Ahrana, the Communist Party of the Socialist Federation of Ahrana (CPSFA/CPF) called for the first Grand Congress of the Peoples Party (Fancy way of saying Congress of the Communist Party). The Agenda was to outline the Parties Polices to the People and to elect a Head of State and Government till the Elections are held in three weeks. The former Head of the Communist Party gave a Speech to the Congress and asked for Strength and Unity to be upmost important thing to bring the People to their greatest efforts.

The Office of General Secretary of the Communist Party was handed to Field Marshall Greggor Ivanof. He stood before the People of the Congress which just elected him to the position. The Field Marshall stood there at the podium and begun reading his second speech:

"I have been elected by this Congressional Body of the Party and of the People present at this Congress, to lead the Socialist Federation till the Elections within less than a month. When I have met the date of the Elections I will hand over all Power to the newly Elected General Secretary of the Communist Party and to the Chairman of the Federation. I will not seek to be elected to either Office of the Executive, after my term I will stand down from Politics and the Military and live my life out in peace. This I swear before you the Members of the Party and the People of the Federation.

As Head of the Intern Government I will prevail where the Royal Government failed to do so. The Trial of the Royals will be done in the name of Justice, and they will be given their just verdicts by the Peoples Court as is the will of the People, the will of all of you before me. The newly formed Government-in-exile has labeled us the murders of the late King Gustov XVII, that is shameful to us and to those who still hold him dear to their hearts. As Lady Madeleine is out in the World spreading lies about what we have done I think its high time the World new exactly what their Government truly did! ****Grand Applauses in the entire Congress**** While we are branded murders of the King they are labeled Hero's! That is outright blasphemy. We are the Hero's of the People, we stood where no other would. I stood in fields of blood that was done in the name of the Royal Government, whose blood you ask! Those sent to Labor and Prison Camps! People like you and I were sent their for charges of Corruption by the Social Democratic Alliance. SDA were nothing more than murders who were sponsored by the Royal Government. They alone sent 300,000 men, women, elders and children to camps! Yes, they did do this I witnessed first hand! I was a General for the Internal Affairs Division of Section 04. I could not believe my eyes what we were doing, that's why I left the Military and Royal Politics. I saw that it was not the Parties of the Communist, Republicans, Conservative and Independents that were corrupt instead it was those running the entire Country in the Executive Levels! Lady Madeleine says we killed the late King yes? Well what if I told General Matasha Håns was forced and blackmailed by the Royal Government to take the blame for the assassination and to say the CPF was to blame! Yes, the Royal Government blackmailed our Hero and her family in order to blame us for what was done.

Why did we attack after the assassination of the King you all have been asking, well its because we the Communist were tired of the corruption and the greed of the Royal Government. Them blackmailing the General and blaming us for the assassination was the final straw! Little do people know that I served on the Privy Council to the King, I was his most trusted advisor and friend. The King himself not being allowed to be political always asked my opinion because he and I saw eye to eye. He was as much as a Communist Idealist as I was. The change in Government was to allow a Communist takeover to happen after the State Visit trips, he was to hand over power directly to the Communist Party and to become party of the Party itself by denouncing his titles and claim to the throne. The Royal Government somehow caught wind of this and killed him out of fear of what would happen to them the corrupt which controlled the government. The Crown Princess now Former Queen, Aleksandra X, is innocent in all charges placed against her that I know for sure. Her Father kept her out of the Political Realm for the reason of fearing what could become of her if the Revolution Failed. But the people have asked to put her on trial and I must abide by it but I tell you all this, She is innocent of all charges she was never involved in any Government activity ever, even when crowned Queen. The Privy Council ruled the Kingdom in those short days of her reign and they are the ones responsible for everything.

Now, lets get to Work on our utopia! Workers of the Federation and the World Unite as one and create and establish what is yours!"

*****Massive Applause in the chamber****

The Communist Takeover


As the Frist Congress of the CPSFA comes to an end, the floor of the Congress was opened to proposals to Amend the Constitution. The only thing that was proposed was further deliberation on the number of People in both Houses of Congresses. The Judicial will be tasked with adding further explanation on how many Representatives each Congressional House will have. The Party General Secretary gave a speech that will be remembered in History as the most inspiring speech ever.

"People of the Federation and of this Congressional Body, as the Party Congress ends the ideals of our Country has been shown to me right here in this First Congress of the Body. I think it is safe for me to say that the Socialist Ideals we will start living by will be around for our Children and for their Children and so forth. I see that this Federation will stay together for many years! Those who come after us will live in a Utopia that we create! *****Applause fills the entire Congressional Hall*****

It has come to the attention of the Communist Party and the organs of the Socialist Government that some Ahranaian Nationals have been smuggled out of the Country. The sole perpetrator of this is the Country of @Fleur de Lys, if those who held Duel Citizenship for more than two years they will not have any action taken against them. However, those who held Duel Citizenship less than two years or just held an Ahranaian Citizenship actions will be taken as a Rule of Evacuation was broken. The People's Court will adjourn to discuss what actions will be taken."  

Now more than ever we must Unite together to create what we can achieve, it will take all of us to create this Utopia. But if we unite together as a people then in the near future of perhaps ten to fifteen years we could see the ideas of a Utopian Society with Socialist Ideals take hold in this Country! In the next coming days a Parade of our Victory will be held and the people are permitted to join the Parade. The entire Military will be on display marking the first time that the entirety of the Ahranaian Military have taken part."

The Communist Takeover


The People's Court had been in sessions today discussing what would be done with the Ahranaian Nationals who left the Country illegally. The Sub-Court, Division A, we're given the task of laying a foundation for penalties.

The Division A had summoned at 07:00 this morning too disscus the matter at hand, after several hours of debating the Division came to an agreement on how to handle the situation.

Sub-Court Division A

Illegal migration of Ahranaian Nationals

Division A has come to a conclusion on how and what must be done for those Ahranaian Nationals that left the Country illegally during the Evacuation of Foreign Nationals and people of Birth. Many Ahranaians have fled to @Fleur de Lysthe Government of Fleur de Lys knew they were only to take Citizens of their Country and of those who held a legal duel citizenship for at least two years. Over the majority who were taken do not meet this criteria. 

Division A of the People's Court ask that the government of Fleur de Lys return those who do not meet the criteria to stay in their Country. Those who did not go to Fleur de Lys but to other Countries are asked to do the same. If the Ahranaian Nationals are not sent back home then matters of this issue will be handed over to the SNB & FKI Divisions. Upon handing over all Authority to the SNB and FKI all Nationals will answer to the Law of Ahrana and face a trial with a possibility of three years in prison.

This was to be another entry into the arena, such gladiators during Antic times, distracting the people, the arena, the National Assembly was a place of death… If not an immediate one, a political one for sure, which may be followed by a duel. The place was noisy as the 50 Deputies, from which Mécra was part of, were debating about the stance that shall be took about the new communist Regime in Ahrana. Legally, it wasn’t much of a concern, as the Lysian Government didn’t recognise, at least yet, the Communists as head of the @Ahrana State, making their decision, but even before that, their window for evacuation and their conditions de facto invalid. Mécra entered, applauded and called as he moved towards the desk in order to speak, meetings were always filmed and spread throughout various canals, and thanks to recent digitalisations, some Deputies were to intervene and ask questions by auditors of all sides of the Political spectrum… It was noisy, it was what they called democracy. Madame la Présidente de l’Assemblée Nationale, Sassant, being a conservative, always saw Mécra from a bad eye, but in those times of diplomatic crisis, internal conflicts were to cease, and even if Mécra had an overwhelming majority in the Assembly with his Party Société Ouverte, public debate, on television, in the Assembly or on social media was open, but a coherent line would have to be defined, and as always in those times of troubles, to be followed by every one, Sassant knew well this, as it wasn’t her first time as Head of the Assembly, but most were aware of the situation, and so as Mécra entered, calm came back within the great room, offering the speech easily to Mécra, which had a public of Deputies eager to hear reports from the Lysian Force de l’Air (Air Force) which had organised the evacuation. “Monsieur le Député de la Première Circonscription, Président du Conseil de la République, Monsieur Mécra” announced Sassant in a total calm, having no objection from any Deputy. The crisis wasn’t that hard, nor catastrophic, but in these modern times, were everything goes generally for the best, this wasn’t usual, and this was to be responded properly. “Madame la Présidente de l’Assemblée Nationale, Deputés, Monsieur le Maître de Séance, Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires Militaires et Stratégiques, Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires Extérieures et Commerciales, Madame la Ministère des Affaires Environnementales et Structurelles, salutations” started Mécra, as the protocol called. “A fully documented report have been addressed by Monsieur Tarente earlier this morning, and shall be entrust to the Members of the National Assembly in a matter of time” he coughed, took a sip from the glass of water which was always put there for the orator, and pursued, “The Force de l’Air successfully supplied the Lysian Embassy in Ahrana” he started, as he would enunciate the various facts of this reports, going through quickly in order to allow a debate to take place about Lysian stance and response, which was to be decided by the end of the day. “5 411 civilians have been successfully evacuated” he commented, not specifying from which 904 Ahranans, and 3 982 Lysians, with 525 from various nationalities, along not commenting the special operation made by Capitaine Ferdinand. “All soldiers which have been deployed for the operation returned safely to their bases, and no aircraft or installation have been damaged”, this was truly a successful operation, which may had turned badly and bloody in a second. “I wish to advance my sincere thanks to the Force de l’Air for their exceptional service, along our partners, which surely, without them, wouldn’t have made such tremendous operation possible, @Prymont and @Variota” he was to comment, ending possibly the #NotMyPrymont debate while not commenting it directly, and addressing a hand to the Prymontian as their last President declaration put them in doubt, but through a simple gesture Mécra was hoping to have ended this little issue. Applauds were in order, as there was a few officers within the House. Once they were vanished, Mécra pursued, “I’d like, Madame la Présidente, to add two points to the agenda of this Assembly” asked for permission Mécra, “Granted” simply responded Sassant, “First, about the status and position of the Republic of Fleur de Lys when coming to the Ahranan citizens having asked asylum in our nation” he started, making the Président de Séance noting it on the official record for debate, “And secondly, the recognition or not of the newly formed Communist Government, as legitimate or illegitimate Government of Ahrana” he ended… Sessions weren’t timeboxed, and as a vote was to be took before the end of the seance, this was to mean before tomorrow at 8 AM. It happened sometimes that debates were to prolong during all night, and this seems to be what will happen, but that happens more then we may expect.

The first point of the agenda was to be solved pretty quickly, and for that, the Société Ouverte Party allowed to call for an obvious candidate on that matter, Eric Jeanseau, leader without question of the Parti Républicain Conservateur, the slim opponent of Mécra’s party, which still had a Parliamentary group along most Presidencies of the Chamber and was clearly in control of the Lysian diplomacy and heavy aerospace industry, which therefore Mécra wouldn’t and couldn’t contest on that field. “The word is given to the Parti Républicain Conservateur” started Sassant, which immediately called for the old Eagle, Jeanseau went down the stairs of the Assembly in order to reach the desk, under the applauds of his group. “Fellow Members, until now, this is to debate… But the Republic does not recognise the authority of the Communist self-proclaimed regime in Ahrana, de facto all legal and administrative affairs, passed and to be if there are no changes, are to be done with the laws of the Kingdom of Ahrana. And shall I pursue by remembering our fellow Members a core point of the Lysian Republican Traditions and Diplomacy, the one to support freedom of speech and grant asylum in all cases judged necessary for such purpose. We shall not give those people which trusted us away, those are under Lysian asylum protection protocol”, he ended, moving out of the desk under applauses, he gave much energy and strength through his voice during this speech, a very short speech… Indeed, there was no need to convince, only the Members of the Parti Radical or of the Parti Socialiste would eventually go against, and even… As the Présidente proposed other groups to take, according to their size, the desk, all refused, leading to a fast vote. “The Motion #MAEC-CCXXV-N-VI-I for response to the Ahrana Civilian Crisis, evacuation of Ahranan citizens and granting their asylum in Fleur de Lys, is put under vote” she started, as always, and as our dear friend, Monsieur Mécra was still Deputy of the Première… “Monsieur le Député de la Première Circonscription Mécra”, “En faveur de la Motion” and I let you guess the suite. “The results of the Motion #MAEC-CCXXV-N-VI-I, 45 in favour, 4 neutral, 1 against. The Motion pass” she simply addressed, which wasn’t much of a surprise, only 40 minutes since Mécra’s speech, most of the time being spent in naturally redacting the said Motion, but now the tough point was to be addressed…

Madame la Présidente, I may question myself if this Assembly isn’t just a Circus” said the only Member from the Parti Socialiste, as he was naturally given the desk for the second agenda point, which was about the recognition or not of the Communists Forces as legitimate. This now made hours that talks have been followed, without breaks, and just water to sip. “And I need to same that this seems more likely of a casino then a real place were Republican Institutions are to be respected” pursued the socialist man provoking massive reactions, “Illusion of democracy, we may see it well with the previous Motion”, Sassant didn’t wait long before hitting with her hammer, “Monsieur Géraldan, you are perfectly free to speak of your mind, you are, however, to respect the protocol and remain talkative on the point of the agenda we are currently debating, and certainly not to question the legitimacy of this Assembly” she cropped him, making him unable to finish his words as he was hooted and totally broke by Sassant authoritarian rule over the House.

We may not allow a bunch of lunatics in power, I call for an international coalition to prevent this disease from spreading”, this was some comment from so-called conservative which might change party sooner then we expect, in many cases, the debate seems to never end, as Deputies were calling for more speech time, which was granted.

Around 2 AM, however, the situation moved a bit as the Parti Radical was to take the desk, with Madame Calmon speaking, “We are unable to question the legitimacy of such Government, we may certainly refuse recognition for the suspicions we have on the following, for example, their King’s death in a plane, or their public trials hold, but this may only pursue by the will of the people. And I do firmly believe that we shall give a sense of hope for this new regime within this World, as the Republic of Fleur de Lys is certainly not the authority to judge a regime given our times of troubles to arrive at where we are today. I propose that we officially recognise the Communist Government as legitimate Government and the State of Ahrana, with previous borders and respect we hold for the Kingdom of Ahrana” she said, getting mixed reactions, applauded and disarray as usual, however, you might consider asking why would this debate take so long if Mécra was to be in control of the National Assembly with his Party Société Ouverte? As matter of fact, all of them were first elected in those offices and didn’t have specific points of view on the matter, and the Party nor Mécra had imposed any specific view on that debate, letting fully questionable the result. Conservatives were naturally heavily against, while Socialistes and Radicaux were fully for, but some applauds were from the Société Ouverte benches, making some call for a vote, immediately as the iron was hot. A motion for recognising the Communists as sole force was to be put in place, while naturally specifying that this didn’t mean that the Republic of Fleur de Lys was supporting all acts made by them, and after all, quite the opposite, but this was to be already a world première if it was to happen. “The Motion #MAEC-CCXXV-N-VI-II for response to the Ahrana Crisis, Government change and recognition or not by the Republic, is put under vote”, I’ll spare you the details, Sassant ended as always the vote counting, “The results of the Motion #MAEC-CCXXV-N-VI-II, 26 in favour, 12 neutral, 11 against. The Motion pass”, ending the seance at 3 AM, and letting the journalist print their edition for tomorrow.

The Communist Takeover


The Communist Government has received information from the Government of @Fleur de Lys that the illegal Ahranaians that are currently residing in that Country and the Government had no intention of sending them back to Ahrana. The Socialist Government has now handed over all Authority to the SNB and FKI that will hold all Law that they posses, the FKI will be the main force getting the illegals back. The Illegals living in other Countries will be brought back by the FKI as well.

People's Palace Premier Corridors

As the corridors of the General Secretary was buzzing with activity and life you could here talks about the SNB and FKI and what their missions were going to be. The SNB would apprehend the Illegals upon entering Ahranaian Space and Land and then they would proceed to the SR Moskovo Prison where they will be held till their trial. The FKI would be the ones to go oversees to apprehend the illegals under different aliases that have been in use for years. Once the illegals have been found and are in the hands of the FKI they will be sent back to Ahrana within two days of capture.

The Government of Fleur de Lys will no doubt notice the flights to Ahrana and how many there will be but once they are on the plane from Ahrana they're on Ahranaian Soil in technicality meaning that they would be powerless to do anything. The noise of the people stopped because the General Secretary came out of his office asking for the Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. These people were going to be brought back to the Country whether they want to or not, they do not have the permission of the Government to be living abroad and must have the approval of the Government.

Office of the General Secretary

"Minister Audhild Kos, the FKI have full Authority over this operation; the SNB will be on stand by during the duration of this operation. However, if they leave evidence that we have captured the illegals in foreign nations then we could lose all credibility and legalization we are now gaining."

"I understand Premier Field Marshall Greggor Ivanof, I have gave explicit details and rules to abide by while they are abroad. If any of them somewhat stray from the Mission they have orders to kill the possible traitor in the name of defense of the Motherland Sir."

"To do what, shoot them! Are ye a bloke! That's a negative on that order Minister! They will not do that if they see someone on the FKI wanting to defect from the mission they report it to me through the HQ Channel and I will issue a Dismissal from the FKI, we will not kill our own Minister!"

"As you say so Sir. I will reissue orders before they leave Sir."

"Good, now keep me informed on all operations we will be running I want all briefings each morning to be on my desk by 09:00, do you understand Minister Audhild?"

"Aye Comrade Field Marshall, I understand my orders Sir."

"Dismissed Minister"

The Communist Takeover

People's Palace

As the Secretary General re-entered his office after making his first televised address as Secretary General he turned to his Assistant and asked if he had any more plans today on his schedule and begin walking to the Office.

"Sir, your schedule is free till tomorrow"

"Exellent can you ring up a secure line to the President of @Prymont, I have things that need to be discussed."

"Yes Sir, right away sir!"

The Secretary General no longer believes that all of the illegals are actually Ahranaians, with the Hellenic Rus in despair and the CoD still roaming a large the possibility for error has become evident. The possibility that some of the papers that the Government of @Fleur de Lys checked we're no doubly fake. The Communist Government had been recovering the Royal Governments actions and list of potential danger citizens and they have found that the aliases that were being used were in fact not Ahranaians with any connection to the Country. 

The time for action has come and it will happen he thought in his mind. He begun organizing the needed paperwork for the operation and the joint operation he would create with the USP. He made a page to the assistant again:

"Also could you ring up the Ambassador for @Fleur de Lys make it the first priority before calling the President of the USP please."

"Yes Sir"

"Actually please cancel that order, get ready to wire over a letter to the FDL Ambassador"

"Aye Sir"

He wasn't sure how this would go but it needed to be done it must be done for the sake of the people around the World.

 

To: Jacques Durand-Guigon, Ambassador to Ahrana from the FDL

From: Field Marshall Greggor Ivanof, Secretary General

Clearance Level: 5

Ambassador Jacques Durand-Guigon, 

It is with urgency that I inform you and your Government that in recent days we have uncovered several fake Identification Papers that belong to the CoD Terrorist Organization. We request on the reasoning of illegal reproduction of Government Identification Papers and Documents hence Forgery that we apprehend these Terrorists. The Socialist Federation asks that the FKI be in control of the Operation and that the legal Police Force in your Country may be allowed to help with the Operation. However if this request is denied then matters might be taken to another extremity. We will apprehend these Terrorists with or without the help of your Government if we must but we would rather that the Government of the FDL help as this problem was created because the Government did not follow the procedure that was given to all Foreign Governments when the Evacuation was allowed.

 

With respect, 

Field Marshall Greggor, Secretary General of the Socialist Federation of Ahrana

The Lysian Embassy in @Ahrana have been active lately, effectively, having 5 times more soldiers than usual, in a context of fear and a threatening atmosphere all around, this wasn’t certainly usual, and the personnel was getting more and more nervous as the new Communist regime was to fully establish its control over their newly conquered territory. Ahrana has been known before for a paradise and quite place for affectations, changes of offices were now in the air as the density of affairs going on was of no match for newcomers or simple Lysians willing to serve the state in other countries in such brutal environment that Ahrana had become in just a few months.

As Jacques Durand-Guigon, Lysian Ambassador to Ahrana, was moving in the great hall of the embassy with now 5 soldiers guarding permanently the stairs, something which had become a custody along more controls within the building itself, he got interpellate by his secretary, “Monsieur l’Ambassadeur” he shouts, “Oui Prosper ?” He asked as he lifts his eyes towards him, “An urgent matter for you Monsieur. Diplomatic Telegram”, making Jacques appear on his face a bit desolated face, not being able to pursue what he was on, he turned back and got back into his office at the demand of his secretary. As he passed the various corridors, he finally entered into his office, locking it in the inside, and locking every outdoor communications or potential threat or disturbance, after all a diplomatic telegram was something serious to be considered and certainly not put aside. But for once, it wasn’t a digital one, more a physical one, which was encounter in the symbolic of a box, to which Jacques had naturally the key. After opening it, he developed an envelope, discovering the message. Shortly after having read it, he took his line, “Contact me immediately the MAEC”, understand the Minister for Foreign Affairs, that good François Richard. The time was pretty much different in Fleur de Lys, as effectively the Moon was high in the sky, and with its beauty almost took the place of the Sun, reflecting all its attacks to illuminate the places, it was at a belated hour that the MAEC had the chance of being disturbed in middle of his dreams and hopes. Coming back to Ahrana, the windows closed and stopped the light from entering the room, allowing the screen along a camera and microphone to be activated, making this the perfection for a visio-conference, which was now on the tool of excellence for those dear Monsieur of the Foreign Affairs Ministry. “Monsieur l’Ambassadeur. Bonsoir Jacques” started François, as he had no time but to put a peignoir as he was in one of the Republic’s Palais. “Monsieur le Ministre. Bonsoir François” commented Jacques, as he started always with the formal greeting, but quickly for efficiency purpose came to the more usual tone those two had, as good friends and partners in politic. “A telegram recently came to my intention from the First Secretary. Telling us of potential threats, and in fact, criminals would have used our evacuation intervention to flee Ahrana. I transfer you the telegram” he started, getting François to wake up a bit more, leaving his dreams definitely behind. “A demand has been addressed… More an ultimatum it seems” added Jacques with a bit of irony, following the Ahranan kind of threat. “I have an idea on how to reply, but as you know, this file being a bit delicate… Wished to know if my line wasn’t too hard? And the position of the National Assembly on that matter” asked Jacques. “Well” started François, trying to get himself in the context, “The National Assembly fully support our hard-line diplomacy, we ignored their previous threats and demands about the Ahranan-citizens evacuation, and we have a majority supporting us in that way in the House. I was suggesting myself call for the Président du Conseil, but I believe there is no necessity. You have my full support to maintain the Lysian diplomatic line on that matter. Is that all?” François informed, “Merci François” smiled Jacques, “Go back to sleep good old friend, you deserve it” he added with a sympathetic tone, “Thanks… And Jacques. Take care”. They both ended the call, letting now Jacques alone write an answer to the new Leader of the country he was in.

 


 

From : Monsieur l’Ambassadeur d’Ahrana Jacques Durand-Guigon
To : Field Marshall Greggor Ivanof, Secretary General of Ahrana

Dear Secretary General,

We are more then thankful for the useful informations your administration have been transmitting us, and I shall be sure that those are delivered to the proper authorities in Fleur de Lys. However, no extradition agreements have been signed between our respectives nations, therefore if extradition was to be needed, this would be to be approved by the authorities in charge. Please notice that all intrusion against the Republic’s Justice Code is considered as a violation of self-determination, international codes along Lysian long-standing Laws and Codes, and such violation would have impacts. Be sure that if your fears were to be proven, the appropriate authorities will take contact with yours in order to mutually cooperate. If your demand was to allow your FKI to operate on Lysian territory, I shall be delighted to pass your demand to the competent authorities.

I need to specify also that all persons in Lysians territory are subjects to its laws, codes and regulations, and de facto under its protection, particularly those which are under the Asylum Protocol.

I must express my surprise when coming to the last sentence of your letter, seeing not link nor legitimacy with any recent event or act committed by our Government in Ahrana.

Warmly yours,

- Ambassadeur en Ahrana

"Sir, we are getting a reply to the Diplomatic Wire sir. I will hand it over to you once we receive it in full."

"Very well"

As he sat in his office contemplating on what the Government of @Fleur de Lys have replied to him with he lit a cigarette and took a sip of tea while looking at the City of Moskovo. It had been a while since he had seen this view and then he realized where he was standing when the Late King had told him of the plans he had for a transition of power. As he stood there remembering his old friend there was a knock on the door, the Assistant had the letter from the FDL Embassy. He grabbed the letter and begin reading it.......and the look on his face was many emotions.

"Get me a Diplomatic Wire open to @Prymont I'm going to involve the USP to see if any ground can be gained on there half, if anything they can reason with them."

"Aye Sir"

He lit another Cigarette and poured Vodka in a cup then took a swig from the bottle and place it down then downed the glass.


 

To: President of the United States of @Prymont

From: Secretary General Field Marshall Greggor of the Socialist Federation of Ahrana

Level Clearance: 5

Priority Level: 5 Urgent

Mr. President,

On behalf of the Socialist Federation we would like to use our friendship with your Country to help with the current event of the CoD Terrorist that are using Ahranaian Identification Papers to live in the FDL Illegally. You have ben informed that the FDL illegally removed Ahranaian Citizens from the Federations Soil during the Evac. We have asked for the return of all illegals and all requests have been denied. With the recent findings of the CoD now in the FDL we ask that you use your Diplomatic ties to mediate or do whatever is necessary to help in the matter.

 

With regards.

Field Marshall Greggor, Secretary General of the Socialist Federation of Ahrana

President Duval received the @Ahranaian telegram in good time, awaiting its arrival in his office. He, alongside General Grey, had been expecting it. The Defence Minister had joined the President in the Presidential Office, planning their next moves regarding The Hellenic Rus. They'd only just received aerial images taken from a reconnaissance mission on the F-E Robin Soniskstråle, and now came the telegram. 

"I suppose they expect us to talk to those Lysians... knock some sense into them." Grey eased himself into his leather chair, letting out a sigh to relieve his tensions. He'd developed an array of aches and pains in his old age, and while he still exercised a sense of strength over the military, his physical wellbeing was deteriorating.

"Certainly," Duval confirmed, nursing a large mug of freshly brewed coffee. "Although, how they found out their refugees were in fact terrorists, I'll never know..."

"It's all a ploy. Are you dumb, boy?!" Grey slammed his fist onto the table, angered by his superior's lack of common sense. "Of course they're Ahranaian! They don't find this stuff out over night. They're just lying to get them back."

"You know the consequences of that would be severe. We can't risk our relationship with @Fleur de Lys like that. Especially now that the ISTC is progressing nicely."

"We're moving into The Hellenic Rus, yes? And we want all the help we can get in getting rid of their vermin, yes? Ahrana have a military that we could use."

"General, Ahrana are recovering from... well, God knows what's gone on in that country lately. They're not strong enough. That's why they're asking for our help."

"Ah, but it's international support. We scratch their back, they'll scratch ours. If two nations invade The Hellenic Rus, it only looks half as bad for us..." The veteran rubbed his hands together, a sinister grin spreading across his face. "If you really want that land across the sea, helping Ahrana is a step in the right direction."

Duval sat back in his chair, his arms folded across his chest. He didn't like the power Grey was trying to use over him, but they'd already started the work in The Hellenic Rus. Pulling the plug now wasn't an option. They had the intelligence, now all they needed was the man power. 


To:  Monsieur l’Ambassadeur d’Ahrana Jacques Durand-Guigon
From: George Duval, President of the United States of Prymont

Monsieur l'Ambassadeur,

I hope you are currently doing well in Ahrana. I understand the political situation is currently tense, and wish that you and your public servants remain safe and secure in the new year. As a friend and ally of the great nation, Fleur de Lys, I hope that we can work together in the current Ahranaian refugee issue to find a suitable resolution for all.

It has recently come to my attention that the refugees you helped escape from Ahrana are not, in fact, seeking peaceful asylum. Field Marshall Greggor Ivanoff, current Secretary General of the Socialist Federation of Ahrana, has provided myself with numerous documents that prove a substantial amount of refugees within Fleur de Lys have strong ties to the Circle of Death terrorist group. The United States have taken several preventative measures recently to restrict movement of Circle of Death members, mainly with our naval blockade in the Canamo Sea. However, unfortunately it appears that these terrorists have executed a plan to escape the region on your planes.

It is our highest priority to maintain peace within the world. I believe that, by spreading Circle of Death members into Europa, we are doing the exact opposite of that. I trust that the peace loving side of Fleur de Lys wants to prevent a possible terror attack within your own borders, and I therefore propose the following. Officials from the United States of Prymont and the Socialist Federation of Ahrana are willing to work together with Lysian security officials to eradicate the threat within Fleur de Lys, and to eventually rinse the root of the evil. By returning these refugees to Ahrana, we can be sure that they will stand a fair trial under their home nation.

If the refugees are not found to be terrorists, rest assured that I personally will do everything in my power to make sure they are returned to the safe sanctuary that is Fleur de Lys. I commend your country's initiative in providing them with asylum, and hope that this action only strengthens the bond between our nations.

Yours sincerely,

George Duval
President of the United States of Prymont

Now, this was becoming serious, it would only have to let pass an hour before Monsieur l’Ambassadeur would get a diplomatic telegram from another Leader in the region, as it wasn’t enough. Multiples questions may be asked on why the President of the United States of Prymont addressed such telegram to the Lysian Ambassador of @Ahrana , while Lysian had an Ambassador in Prymont, this indeed was certainly to put more pressure on the affairs, which was certainly an Ahranan move, something Durand-Guigon quickly realised, but this time he couldn’t act alone and need again his friend, François Richard in visio-conference in order to talk on the matter. “Give me the MAEC” he immediately asked, as Jacques was reading a second time with more intensity the letter and the meaning behind it. Few minutes later, “Yes?” asked an exhausted Minister, François Richard, “Monsieur le Ministre” greeted again formally Jacques, “Monsieur l’Ambassadeur” replied François with a tired tone, “Merci for your time François” started Jacques, hoping to not disturb much François, “As a matter of fact, was my last night in Lyrie for a while with my wife…” he regretted, “Before a diplomatic meeting in Volga Nizhny” he ended. “I’m transmitting you the diplomatic telegram. From George Duval” he said, making immediately François re-take his spirit and wake up a bit more, “What is Prymont doing in that?” he wondered as he was received the telegram, “Ahranan called for help, and as Prymontian needs their support, they could just accept their demand in order to basically same the same, a bit more stronger by directly calling all Ahranan to be gone to Ahrana and giving them few guarantees of coming back if they were innocent, which I suspected most of them are” commented Jacques in order to put back context for François as he was being brought a cup of coffee by his Maître d’Hôtel. “Right” he started wondering as he took a closer look at the telegram. “It’s not really respecting diplomatic protocol” he commented, clearly seeing the pressure they were willing to put on the Ambassador. “It would be stupid to stuck us with the Prymontian in the dirt by having to explain the why behind this… They know, it’s just the cat and the mouse playing” commented bit bored François, eager to go back to sleep after all, but he took a sip of coffee, and his mood shifted quickly. “But that you already know…” wondered François, in order to question the utility of the call Jacques just had asked, “Yes, but… This is delicate, we’re talking about a partner in the ISTC”. “Let us write an essay” started François, as both men would write together the respond.

 


 

To :  George Duval, President of the United States of @Prymont
From : Monsieur l’Ambassadeur d’Ahrana Jacques Durand-Guigon

Mister President,

Your intention sincerely and deeply touches us, your care for the Republic even with the recent events is showing between our nations how much trust can be deep, and that it’s certainly not passing frivolities that shall disband our unity. I am re-assuring you of our best intentions when coming to this delicate subject with your Excellency.

Be sure your Excellency, that I have transmitted all the pieces of information your Excellency have been providing me, the same as the Excellencies from the Socialist Federation of Ahrana, we would, however, be delighted to have further documents and proofs helping the legal authorities to manage properly the investigation, all help in that area is welcomed.

Having taken contact on that matter with the authorities handling the investigation, we have explored the possibility of making intervene as a witness during the trial in the Republic, a certain number of Ahranan if it was needed. I have all trust in the Lysians authorities to handle the threat and be sure that the Ahranan having sought asylum in Fleur de Lys are well protected and verified before being approved, we hope you do the same by trusting us on that subject. For now, no harm has been discovered nor judiciary past for one of the askers of asylum, but be sure that if we find we shall be giving justice and considering extradition if necessary, along calling Ahranan during the trial.

Be sure that all Ahranans under Lysians protections have been asking asylum, and in alignment with International Treaties along Lysian long-standing and fundamental right of Droit d’Asile they shall not be denied and if it was to be so, would create a Constitutional Crisis in the heart of our dear Republic by going against our values and laws.

My sincere sympathies,
Wishing you all the best for this new year of the Gregorian calendar,

- Ambassadeur en Arane

After getting off the Tell with President Duval of the USP, Greggor Ivanof slammed his fist into the desk going into an all out rage. He did not wish Duval to hear his rage, Greggor threw the bottle of Vodka and the glasses at the wall cursing in Ahran.

"Secretary!! Come in here at once please!"

She Studdard the words out of her mouth, "Aye Sir. What can I do for you.?" 

"Gather all personal need for Operation Tremor please and have them meet in here in less then 10 minutes."

"Aye Sir, right away sir."

As he went over and grabbed a broom and pan he begun cleaning his mess up. During which he begun to remember what Gustov had told him at a meeting one day, "Ivanoff, sometimes this job really pisses me off and sends me in a all out fit of rage that scares the hell out of me.' Greggor laughed it off then but now he understands what he meant that day.

"Sir the Personal are here for you, are you ready for them Sir?"

"Send them in please."

"Aye Sir"

As they all entered the room he stood up and walked over to the Conference table in his Office.

"Men and Women, you were chosen from a select few to be part of this operation. No one but those whose names are on the file and in this room know anything of this. Yes, we currently have three other operations going on but this one takes precedence. The CoD still pose a treat and we have joined up with the Military Forces of the USP and we will eradicate the CoD. If anyone has objections say them now, if not good please open the file and read."

As they sat there and read the file some of the facial expressions coming from everyone were of shock. Some even of confusion. Greggor begun to chuckle as he knew they were surprised about the information and what they were over. 

"Report at the Army Base in Peterburi to meet up with the forces of the USP at 05:00."

"Aye aye sir."

Greggor knew that this was either going to break the Federation or show what the Federation is made of.

Peterburi | 0446hrs
Socialist Federation of Ahrana

 

Tyres screeched sharply as a USPAF strategic air lifter touched down in the Peterburi military compound in Ahrana. The flight had been a short one, and with plenty of fuel left in the tank, the plane was already turning around to return home. It was already the beginning of disassociation, the higher executives of the United States distancing themselves from the weeks that were to come. 

Eighteen highly trained soldiers disembarked the jet, marching along the runway towards the hangar. The air was cool in the early morning, a harsh northern Argic breeze whipping against their faces. If there was one positive to take on the flight to Fleur de Lys, it'd be that they'd be travelling to warmer climates. It wasn't only the temperature that'd be increased in Fleur de Lys - the insurmountable pressure, weighing heavily on their shoulders, would be enough to turn coal into diamonds. They were to go against international protocol, illegally infiltrate an ally's borders, capture suspected terrorists against the will of the Lysian government, and potentially kill what could be innocent people. This was no normal mission.

This was Operation Tremor.

Despite the odds being weighed against them, the men were jovial as they lined up by the hangar. They were serving their country, hoping for a better future, and in the mind of a certain General Hunter S Grey, a larger future. The Prymontians weren't infiltrating one of their closest allies to kill Circle of Death members. No, they were doing it as a favour. The lunatics at the top of the USP Ground Force had the wild idea that, if they helped the Ahranaians, the Ahranaians would help them in return. Sending money through back channels or sharing private data wasn't an option. They had to risk all out war, as the favour in return was equally as insane.

The soldiers had been equipped with suicide pills. If they were discovered by Lysian officials, they were to commit suicide. Their histories had been intricately forged by the National Surveillance & Intelligence Force. They'd been secretly trained to quell their distinctive Prymontian accents, and were blackmailed to not say a word if captured. Extreme measures had been taken for extreme circumstances. No stone had been left unturned. These soldiers were virtually untraceable back to the United States. If the Lysians could somehow do it, General Grey had promised to fly to Fleur de Lys and stand before a firing squad. The man was old, even crazy, but he was sure of himself. 

USP Ground Force troops would parachute onto Lac Venége under the cover of night, and sneak their way across the Lysian border. The neutral state of Magnaeus would be used if necessary, possibly worsening the ramifications if caught. From there, they would use intelligence gathered by Ahranaian moles and stolen from the Lysian police to triangulate the whereabouts of Ahrana's refugees. Once captured... there were no clear orders on what to do. General Grey had insisted that "necessary action should be taken". Whether or not this meant killing them or only rounding them up and returning them to Ahrana, the men did not know. But they knew one thing for sure. They had a job to do.

Somewhere over the ocean |  23:00 hrs

The mood was a silent one amongst the entire crew, they knew the mission and were heavily focused on the mission. The operation had to be a success everything depended on these men from the People's Special Forces and the USP. They all had there orders, to either capture the "terrorists" or the other kill them. The plane for the Job was the AHA-134 (TU-134), this was the first time that this plane was to see any action. Yet, the Secretary General felt that it was the plane for the job. The Pilots had there own set of orders, after the Operation Crew had jumped out they were to make a u-turn and head back to the 2nd Naval Fleet in the Adlantic Ocean. If they could not make it back to the fleet they had orders to lose the plane and to make it a suicide return.

It had already been a long journey and they were already more than half of the way there, it had been 12 hours already. With only an hour left to go the Captain told the men to finish there last wills and testaments and to remove all personal belongings including religious belongings.

"Men, you have been asked to perform under a great amount of pressure. The eyes of the Secretary General are upon you, he asks you to do the impossible. The majority of you were told that Operation Tremor happen in The Hellenic Rus, well in fact the operation is on Lysnian territory. The operation is for you to capture the Ahranaian Illegals and take them to the Ahranaian Embassy where they will wait for extradition on a Diplomatic Plane. If any are found to be "dead" then leave them. We have a week to complete this operation as fast as we can. The FKI have collected intell and they will give us this intell when they arrive to smuggle us across the Lysnian Border. Do we understand the mission and what is at hand here men?"

"Aye Sir"

"Good if the Police or whomever catches you, you are asked to commit suicide just like the men from the United States understood."

"Aye, sir"


"You've got the green light sir its time to move out!"

"You heard him men! Lets move move move!"

One by one the men jumped out of the plane, the view of the land above was glorious, just trees and land no buildings. This is what no mans land looks like to the world, full of beauty.

"Alpha, Bravo, Delta Calling in sir ready to go sir."

"Charlie, Whiskey, Foxtrot chinking sir"

As time goes by one by one each solder checks in with their call sign, once the last sign was called in they begun to move towards FDL to meet with the FKI agents...........

As the Crisis of Ahrana was starting, in a building near Lyrie… “Those Cristinese weapons…” commented Hubert as he touched one of those CAS Raging Bull in the wallet freshly delivered from one of those @Cristina Arms Solutions manufactures, small calibres were a speciality of Cristina, if we may call those small. Effectively, you just need to have a look at their long History to see how a small weapon, which may easily slip in a pocket may change a story of an entire region, particularly when declaring independence. Our two characters which I’m about to introduce, Hubert which just made a comment, and Maurice, his dear partner, were two RGs, or Agents des Renseignements Généraux, waging their way in the great Guerre des Polices (Police War), (Naturally any coincidence or resemblance to real characters is neither accidental nor involuntary. This story is a work of pure fiction. Consequently, any resemblance to real situations or to existing or existing persons can only be fortuitous), but the RGs had a reputation of breaking few walls, they were particularly used outside of Fleur de Lys, not getting along well with the Secret Services it’s true, but when coming to the inside, between the Police, Gendarme, DGRA and much more, this was a real mess. “So, what’s new?” asked Hubert to his partner which just came from the Captain’s office, “Just a coup in Ahrana, they’re doing an evacuation of our citizens”, “Who?” questioned Hubert as he was shining his new acquisition from CAS, “Seems like the Force de l’Air handle the thing… The Fusiliers Marins, from our services we’ve been told to not intervene” added Maurice, “So they’re doing undercover operations there mmh” concluded Hubert, as he finally got the gun in his back. “You think it’s a good idea?” asked Maurice as he put himself in front of Hubert, this one was moving towards the door, stopping him immediately, “Obviously not, why?” replied in a total serenity Hubert, “Euh… So why going there?” Maurice questioned, “Because I’m curious. Now come” he said, giving a friendly tap on Maurice back his head. As effectively the RGs were attached to the MAEC (Foreign Affairs Ministry), they had no counts to give to the military, so the MAMS (Military Affairs Ministry) or the MAIE (Interior Affairs Ministry), or again directly the Presidency which had the Secret Services, I hope this makes you understand why we call this a Guerre des Polices.

The plane landed in a panic there, the two RGs were disguised as humanitarian help, with naturally their intentions and guns undercover, they would look around in order to seek what was happening with the Fusiliers de l’Air, or more likely the DGRA (MAMS, remember?). It was easy for the two to catch a plane, even if pure white with Air France’s colours, the number of matriculation wasn’t corresponding to any active within Air France’s fleet, who would find such information quickly about Lysians? Other Lysians obviously. “Eh come” said Hubert as he invited Maurice to come closer, which Maurice wasn’t fond of the idea of the trip in the first place, so imagine getting closer to a plane you definitely know being under control of another intelligence service then yours and which would most likely hate you for going on its flower beds. “Allez !” insisted Hubert, making Maurice feeling obligated to come near the front landing gear of the plane, as Hubert was at the backwards one. There, the two might see a few Fusiliers de l’Air checking a bunch of people, with two others trucks coming, those clearly weren’t Lysians citizens just by the language they were talking, what might it be? An extraction? Then, Hubert just had the chance to see Capitaine Ferdinand checking with another officer, this was definitely something not very clear. The first group of personnel was, it seems, accepted and escorted into the aircraft, as the two others group of personnel within the waiting trucks were checked by soldiers and dogs. On the other side of the tarmac, you may clearly see the line of people waiting to get onboard of the civilians planes, even if escorted by militaries, but that area there was suspicious, it would just be enough when two civilians, at least what seems to be civilians, as Capitaine Ferdinand passed, made the military salute, clearly showing they weren’t that lambda as they seem. “We seen enough” commented to himself Hubert, making a sign to Maurice to leave as he was doing so. Except Maurice wouldn’t see his sign as Hubert was backuping. It would take a few dozen of seconds for Maurice to see where Hubert was missing, “Hubert?” He asked confused a bit, not screaming obviously to alarm anybody. “Hu-Hubert?”, “It’s not funny” he said as he stands up a bit and tried to make himself discreet and join the backwards landing gears. “Eh toi !” screamed a soldier with a dog patrolling the aircraft, making Maurice totally surprised and being caught where he truly didn’t need to be, “Euh..” Smiled with his usual naive smile Maurice, as he lifted his hands in the air, before seeing the situations being completely changed as Hubert ran into the soldier, catching him like a rugby ball, and taking the dog’s leash, and running with him as far as possible from the plane and the soldier on the ground. But too late, this had alarmed other soldiers, “Stoppez-vous” ordered those as the two men and the dog were now running, “Don’t shoot” ordered an officer as he saw the scene, not willing to break the operation coverture. As the two got safely back to their plane, always with their humanitarian clothing, and now with a dog, they came back on the plane, “What are you going to do with the dog?” asked with a surprised air Maurice, “Just making him take fresh air” commented, as always, quietly Hubert. “Mouais… And it's Her, not Him” commented Maurice, not really convinced, as this dog would more or less screw up their coverture and agenda as they would come back to the HQ after having received a general consign of not doing operations in @Ahrana during the evacuation. “Be sure, we will give them back their dog, don’t worry” Hubert added, as the situation was being more and more fun for him.

Hubert… Hubert! Hubert! We only hear about your exploits oversea” commented the Capitaine, as the two partners were seating right in front of his desk, and he was moving around, ready to make them a tough day for what they just did, “Seriously…” he said, as he put his hand on the shoulder of Hubert, “Monsieur, I don’t see why you convene us here” tried to say innocently Hubert, as Maurice was almost laughing, seeing for once Hubert’s innocent faked face. “I know for Ahrana” said with a serious tone the Capitaine as he was facing the two partners behind his desk. He moved down a bit in order to take something and screamed “You’re god-damn good haha!” he unveiled the bottle of champagne he prepared, “Bravo, I’d have loved to see those Taitaires faces”, the nickname of the Agents of the DGRA. That released our two companions, “Ah well, you know…” said with relief Maurice, as the Capitaine was moving out glasses and offering them the champagne. A silence of happiness installed itself in the room, as the men were savouring the champagne, “Ha…” made the Capitaine, as he was blushing of the situation and seeing it in a funny way. The two partners trinques, savouring the reaction of the Capitaine. “But well, let’s come back to affairs” ended the pleasant moment the Capitaine, just with such sentence as he was seating down, “I fear the Minister didn’t appreciate much that, so for now, you are confined to protection of Governmental complexes, away from any missions for 3 months. And please give them back their dog”, making the two react with tones of protestations. It was rather hard for them to digest such news, but that was the system… “You’ll be protecting this complex, which is a refuge for Asylum askers”, which would consist of many various nationalities, from Mantellan to the new Ahranans guests. “3 months?” Surprised himself Hubert as he was to stand up, and move towards the window. “It’s a little price to pay for what you have done. Lucky for you we’re not yet a military intelligence service” reacted the Capitaine. “And 3 months…” started again the Capitaine as he stands up too and moved next to Hubert towards the windows, “It’s nothing, just taking a few holidays, fresh air” he commented, letting Maurice alone at the desk, trying to finish the bottle of Champagne.

    • Sarbo Broadcasting Channel - SBC _________________________________________________________ The intro sequence of SBC plays across Alenian television sets as it fades into a shot of the newsroom. There were two people sitting in chairs in the center of the newsroom, a man and a woman. The man was wearing a business-casual outfit while the woman was wearing formal attire. "Good morning, and thank you for tuning in. I'm Emilia Sada and today we're with the man who discovered the possible key to our national heritage, Namazio Sinagra. Namazio, I understand you were taking a stroll through the forest when you discovered this...artifact." Namazio shifts in his chair slightly as he begins to speak. It's clear in his voice that he's in his 40s. "Yeah, um, I was taking a stroll a little way outside of Verolieri. I went out about, eh...3 miles east, and that's when I found it. This little curved, rectangular block sticking up from the dirt. That's when I ran back and grabbed my shovel and started digging. I kept finding more, and more, and more...and that's when I called the archaeologists." Emilia continues as a narrator. "At 5:20, the archaeologists arrived and began their dig. They've already found what appears to be a wall in the Verolieri forests. They haven't hit the floor yet, but they are extremely close. I'm Emilia Sada, thank you for watching." And the screen fades out to commercial.
    • The HMS Argos had continued its patrols in the Dolch See following its original mysterious encounter with the frigate it had been pursuing. Upon hearing the news that the Ardent and two other ships were currently engaged in a difficult battle with a ship matching that same description, Captain Deanne Domnall was beginning to question her original decision to break off pursuit. However her orders were clear for the moment, unless the situation over there becomes critical, the Argos will continue its normal patrols in hopes of stopping something else. "Captain, we just received a brief burst of a mayday from a Limonaian ocean liner traveling through the Dolch." Domnall snapped out of her thoughts upon hearing her communications officer call from the other side of the bridge. She turned her back to the bridge's window and almost jogged her way over to the officer who was still messing with the controls on his equipment. "Are they still transmitting?" The officer shook his head, "No ma'am I lost the signal almost as quickly as it started. They were briefly able to mention that whatever the ship was that was approaching them appeared to be coming from the general direction of Derthalen's coastline." Deanne took a moment to think to herself, this could be another one of the Sentists attacks, as her crew has started to call them. But something felt a bit off about it, attacked an ocean liner of any size would mean some serious commitment to their actions. While she had no doubt in her head the Sentists were a threat in the Dolch, they didn't appear to be some monolithic organization that could just capture and process hundreds of people like that. "Keep sending replies to their mayday, see if you can get them back." She turned around to face navigation, "Navigation, set a course towards the last known location of that ocean liner. Check their filed plans and let's see if we can use that last radio contact to figure out where they may be. Take us there full speed ahead." Something about this particular incident seem to sit wrong in her gut. But until Argos got there, Domnall made sure to try and quash ever growing list of theories.   --------------------------   Lennox breathed a sigh of relief as it had seemed the battle had finally died down. "Captain, both the other ships have confirmed they are beginning boarding operations." Lennox nodded, "Go ahead and send a reply stating we will be holding back, we have possible unexploded munitions on board that could be a hazard to the other ships if we approached." The communications officer nodded and began to relay the messages. Lennox's second officer approached him holding a radio in his hand, "Captain I've got Leftenant Elliot down below decks saying he's got eyes on the shell that hit us." Lennox immediately grabbed the radio out of his hand, "Leftenant, this is the Captain tell me what your seeing." "Aye captain, seems what we've got here is a partial penetration of the shell. By the looks of it I'm thinking it might be a dud but I can't be too certain. I'm taking a closer inspection right now, but it seems to be fairly old." Both Lennox and his second officer exchanged quizzical looks, "What do you mean old?" "Judgin by the intact marking sir, I'd say this shell is probably... over fifty years old. Certainly not Seylosian. The language looks maybe something like Limonaian? I can't imagine they would have produced this in years though. I'd want to be extra careful with this particular piece, many of these older shells have a chemical anti-tampering device which could set it off." "Well I'm fairly certain we haven't been exchanging fire with a Limonaian frigate tonight... leftenant I want you to document everything you can before going through with any sort of defusal. Make sure that section is evacuated of any non critical personnel." "Aye sir, we're on it"
    • It might seem a little odd starting a blog on increasing Invision Community's speed with the word "lazy",  but I'll explain why this is a good word for performance shortly. Earlier this year, Google announced that page speed is a ranking factor. Simply put, if your site is slow, it will be ranked lower in Google's search results. It is always a challenge making a large application like Invision Community as efficient as possible per page load. A single Invision Community page can pull in widgets from multiple applications as well as a lot of user-generated content with attachments, movies and images used heavily.  This is where being lazy helps. Lazy loading is a method by which attachments, embeds and images are not loaded by default. They are only loaded when the viewer scrolls down enough to make them visible. This allows the page to load a good deal faster now it doesn't have to load megabytes of images before the page is shown as completely rendered. I was going to take a fancy video showing it in action, but it's hard to capture as the system loads the media just before you get to it, so it looks fairly seamless, even with sluggish connections. Not the most dynamic image, but this shows the placeholder retains the size of the image We have added this lazy loading to maps and Twitter emoji images. Improving non-image attachments
      Once we had implemented the lazy loading framework, an area we wanted to improve was non-image attachments. We have listened to a lot of the feedback we had on this area, and have now made it very clear when you add an attachment into a post. We've even returned the download count now it's being loaded on demand. Using attachments when posting All the letters
      When we first implemented the letter avatars in 4.3, we discussed whether to use CSS styling or use an image. We decided to go with an image as it was more stable over lots of different devices, including email. We've revisited this in 4.4, and switched the letter avatars to SVG, which are much faster to render now that the browser doesn't have to load the image files. Other performance improvements
      We've taken a pass at most areas with an eye for performance, here is a list of the most significant items we've improved. Several converter background tasks have been improved, so they work on less data Duplicate query for fetching clubs was removed in streams Notifications / follower management has been improved Member searches have been sped up (API, ACP live search, member list in ACP, mentions, etc.). Stream performance has been improved UTF8 conversions have been sped up Elasticsearch has been sped up by using pre-compiled queries and parameterisation, as well as the removal of view filtering (and tracking) HTTP/2 support with prefetch/preload has been added Several PHP-level performance improvements have been made Implemented rel=noopener when links open a new window (which improves browser memory management) Several other performance improvements for conversions were implemented that drastically reduce conversion time IP address lookups now fetch IP address details from us en-masse instead of one request per address Cache/data store management has been streamlined and centralised for efficiency Many background tasks and the profile sync functionality have all been improved for performance Brotli compression is now supported automatically if the server supports it Redis encryption can now be disabled if desired, which improves performance Phew, as you can see, we've spent a while tinkering under the hood too. We'd love to hear your thoughts. Let us know below! This blog is part of our series introducing new features for Invision Community 4.4. View the full article
    • Look forward to see where you go with this placement.
    • @North Dniester No problem with that on my end, now that the civil war isn't going ahead. Makes it easier for me and @Ahrana to whip you into place.
