Reports indicate the Hero Class guided missile cruiser Maui and a number of other surface assets are preparing to put to sea. There are also unsubstantiated rumours that Jormungandr , the Tiamat and Taniwha Kraken Class SSBNs are also being prepared for launch.

 

The government remains tight lipped about these vessels possible distinations if they are in fact put to sea. A military spokesman did state, however, that regional tensions surrounding the Endless Summer Straights and the Meteorola-SSSS conflict necessitated that all possible measures be taken to protect Akiiryu and her allies.

The Maui and a number of other naval assets, including at least 4 Shield Maiden Class Destroyers, two for which were identified as the Brynhilda and the Eowyn, left port today. officials say that these ships will reinforce the Beowulf squardon currently patrolling the waters of the Akiiryan coast. Some experts have questioned this statement noting, with special reference to the Maui and the Beowulf, the the fire power currently being concentrated in this fleet seems excessive for simple deep seas patrol duties, even during the hightened tensions of this time.

 

Also seen leaving port this morning were the Jormungandr and the Tiamat . Indications are the Taniwha will also be going to sea soon as well.

It has been announced today Royal Akiiryan Navy's Southern Fleet has been ordered South through the canals of the Great Kings in an attempt to curb the growing threat The Chosen Nations is presenting to the peace, security and values of the region of Europa.

 

Although the exact make up of the fleet has not been released, the War Marshal's office has confimed that the recently launched Oceanus will be joining the fleet when it reaches Regno. The fleet is also know to contain the Prince Class Super Aircraft Carrier Thayaric, as well as two Hero Class guided missile cruisers, the Beowulf and the Ragnar. It is likely the fleet also includes at least one Skyweb Class Air Defense Crusier, along with a number of Shield Maiden and Sea Hound class destroyers. The Southern fleet is known to operate with extensive submarine assets.

 

OOC:

Time for The Principate to start flexing its muscles.

 

I am not mentioning the smaller ships that are included in most fleet deployments. You can consider them to be involved.

 

IC:

 

In related news while discussing the placing of Santhu based Sea Guards Units on high alert today, Gathoric Yaonaricic, a spokesman for the Baronic Council, stated that the Baronic Council welcomes Karthenia's support of the Sublime Principate with regard to The Chosen Nations. The Baronic Council, he stated, hopes that Karthenia's support is indicative of a new chapter in the two states' relationship.

Whatever support we can render in removing this menace, we will provide. The 8th Grand Fleet under Admiral Giuseppo is headed your way, should it be needed.

Isolationists propose biological counter-attack!

 

As a reaction to the threat of nuclear weapons from "The Chosen Nations", the isolationist party proposed the usage of biological weapons against "The Chosen Nations", if this country used nuclear weapons against Tamurin.

 

"We still have biological agents from Imperial Tamurin at our disposal and the Jaihu Mk. III-medium range rocket would be able to hit all targets in "The Chosen Nations". We should enforce production of these strategical weapons systems to ensure the safety of our country!" Martin Sumner, leader of the isolationists, said in the parliament.

 

President Hartman rejected this idea. "Biological weapons are the most horrible weapons ever created and as long as I am president, these weapons will never be used - even if we were under nuclear attack."

 

Asked whether Tamurin still had biological agents: "Yes, we still have them for research purposes. Some Imperials are still free and it is possible that they could reproduce these agents to use them against our people. These samples exist to create an effective anti-virus."

 

Asked how Tamurin would defend itself against this new threat: "We have our ways to deal with that kind of situation." He did not explain what this means.

We completly disagree with this display of force. Once such a nation, unstable as it may seem, has nuclear weapons, we think it is not wise to back them into a corner, as it now appears that you are doing. This is unacceptable, as it could cause a nuclear incident when the government of that nation has the idea that the situation is not salvagable, that they are facing defeat and will use any means necessary to either gain victory or turn their oppenents' success into, literally, ashes.

 

It is our recommendation that you halt your forces where they are, and take to the diplomatic route, rather than one that will end in the loss of life. Keep your fleet there to act as a "stick" if you will, to be used once the diplomatic processes have failed. But use the "carrot", if we may, as well. Show them the benefits of not possessing such weapons, or at least threaten them with non-violent actions first, such as sanctions and trade embargoes.

 

It has often been the SPA which warns the Holy Empire on its rash actions. We would rather have it like that, as we are often in a position that is untenable. In order to keep this situation, we impore you to turn you fleets back.

 

May you chose the correct path,

 

Holy Emperor Commodus III

Your Imperial Majesty,

 

Thank you for your concern. The SPA has no intention of using the South Fleet in a "hot" hostile manner at this moment. Rather, is intended to become the basis for a multi-nation blockade fleet. Other nations have declared their intention to support such a move.

 

TCN is a rogue state that only seems to understand expressions of force. Its CDC declaration, and attempts to annex the island south of 122 are only the last of many provocations that this state has offered the people of Europa. It is time that TCN government was firmly told such acts will not be accepted.

 

Akiiryu, as I am sure you are aware, seldom, if ever, shoots first. Given the considerable restraint the Sublime Principate demonstrated over the Iceberg incident, I am sure you can trust Akiiryu to act in the most circumspect manner in relation to TCN as well.

We recognise the threat posed, feel free to base your forces in Ide Jima. You may base forces in Seikan Naval Base, if neccesary supplies will be prepared.

 

Any military aid you require will be granted.

Despite previous agreements about the Endless Summer straits, Ide Jima is doubling Shipwrecker Patrols over the region as a defensive gesture.

My honourable friend, the First Minister T'Nith

 

From our, and your, own experiences, the last time such a manouver as a blockade only caused more harm than good. An action like this would only suceed in bring the South East of Europa closer to conflict, rather than making war less likely. If it goes ahead, we will openly condemn the actions of Akiiryu and those nations that also take part.

 

The Chosen Nations may be a rogue state, but the best course of action is not to drive them even further away from the rest of Europa, but rather to bring them closer to the actions of civilised nations such as ours. The island maybe the last straw, but we do not believe that military, or economic, action will have the desired affect. The Chosen Nations should be firmly told that its previous actions aren't acceptable, but not down the barrel of a gun. This is not conducive to repition of this behaviour, it will, instead, cause more trouble, as the government of that nation, and people, work towards revenge.

 

I can appricate that Akiiryu is not a nation that shoots first then asks questions later, but any action that is not taking place along diplomatic lines, will only serve to damage the political climate in Europa. I hope I can trust Akiiryu to be circumspect, as past experiences have told me, but recent actions serve to contradict the Sublime Principate's reputation.

Isolationists demand new weapons!

 

The isolationist party has issued a law proposal within the parliament. In this proposal, it demands the fast production of VX poison gas and Jaihu Mk. III medium-range missiles.

 

"VX poison gas is a known chemical weapon in Tamurin. Production could start tomorrow. The construction of a warhead would be no problem and the Jaihu Mk. III missiles are already in service - just not enough.

 

To deal with the nuclear threat from "The Chosen Nations", we have to make sure that we can hit them as powerful as they can hit us. Since Tamurin is not capable to build nuclear weapons within a reasonable time, the construction of chemical weapons is the only alternative."

 

President Hartman and his parliament allies, the conservatives and the socialists, rejected the proposal.

 

"This is just crap." a conservative politician said. "We are member of the PoA and the CPA. An attack against us would be an attack against these pacts. We have members with WMD in this pact, so why build our own?"

 

"WMD are not the way to deal with international problems. We will fight against these opinions." the socialist party said.

 

"The whole thing would be much easier, if we had a useable anti-ballistic shield." the liberals said. "We have the weapons from the "Ilia"-crisis. We should build an anti-ballistic shield around Tamurin, so no nuclear warhead could enter our airspace."

 

Field Marshall von Steinburgs opinion:

"The anti-ballistic shield is a good idea, but not possible in a short time. And I don't believe in WMD. We should upgrade our conventional forces, this will be enough."

Imperial Majesty,

 

I fear you misunderstand our intentions, if so the fault is mine and I apologise.

 

The Southern Fleet will be used to bloackade the island south of 122 to stop TCN's construction of nuclear missile facilities, it will not be blockading the TCN itself.

 

This blockade will only come into effect if TCN continues in its policy of building weapons facilities on the island, if it stands down the fleet will also be stood down.

 

Imperial Majesty, as the threat of the deployment of the Southern Fleet, along with the condemnation of other nations, seems to have already forced TCN to reconsider at least one of its questionable policies (CDC), it is hoped the threat of the blockade will also force it to reconsider its attempts to make the island south of 122 a missile base.

We thank you for your offer and may avail of your aid if needed. We would request that you withdraw from attempting to annex the island south of plot 122 at this time. The threat of another nation taking the island may only harden TCN resolve.

My honourable friend, the First Minister T'Nith

 

I thank you for your clarification of the Principate's intentions towards The Chosen Nations. I still do not agree with it, but I am glad that it is not a move against the country itself.

 

I can also see that Europa-wide condemnation of some of The Chosen Nations' policies has lead to a reversal of some of these, even an apparent warming of relations between your noble country and Tagmatium's ally, Karthenia.

 

I think that the annexation of the island could be allowed to go ahead, so long as the nation in question does not deploy weapons of mass destruction in this position. Also, maybe some sort of international base could be set up on the island to police this condiction of keeping the island WMD-free. This could also be helpful in staying TCN's hand in future clashes, rather than the deployment of naval vessels.

Imperial Majesty,

 

The Sublime Principate might be willing to agree to your proposal to allow the TCN to annex the island, provided:

 

1) It is willing to accept all the terms you have outlined.

 

2) Other interested nations agree.

 

I would humbly request to set forth your proposals to TCN.

My honourable friend, the First Minister T'Nith

 

I thank you for your swift reply on the matter. I do not see why other nations, indeed The Chosen Nations as well, would not accept this proposal. It would leave The Chosen Nations in possession of a strategically important island (although this has an active volcano on it, according to my reading into the area's history). I thank you for your time, and wish you and your nation well.

As we have said before, our only opposition to TCN's occupation of that island was that they intended to deploy nukes. If they agree to the Tagmantine suggestion, we would have no problems.

That said, we have already expressed support for Ide Jima's claim,and should they press it further, we may have to side with them.
