**********M*N*N**NEWS*UPDATE**************

LIVE FROM THE MNN WORLD HEADQUATRES IN FOGGY BOTTOM, THIS IS AN MNN NEWS UPDATE:

 

Yet another Oceanic government has failed. The Free Ekainak government has crumbled under its own weight. As a result of the Alliances return to the world stage, the Meteorolan Government has instucted MAID (the Meteorolan Agency for International Development) in coordination with the Ministry of Defence to prevent civil unrest on Ekainak Island.

 

Hurricane Eric had this to say, "Just like when the Baltirow-Woud government failed, we supported the people. Our commitment to the island people of Europa has not dampened despite our differences."

 

This was clearly refering to the complications in Baltirow-Woud resulting from disputes with the SSSS.

 

The Hurricane has pleged almost one billion Degrees in a effort to keep peace in the island nations.

 

Now back to your local forecast, this has been an MNN update.

Re: The Fall of Free Ekainak

 

With the SSSS now defunct, we veiw ourselves as the leader of the island nations of Europa. Therefore we will spearhead this effort, if need be we will request help from the other island nations in the (OOC: have you all named locations yet?) North Sea.

 

The people of Free Ekainak will not be lost, and will be looked after by a nation that is both democratic and more than able to run an aid mission.

We're are glad there has been an effort made to help support the people of Ekainak to recover from the turmoil that has resulted from the collapse of the government of our ally. As we have supported the people of Ekainak in stuggles against the colonisation of the North of Europa by foreign powers from the Central Peninsular. In this respect, we would provide as much help as we can, as the Greater Holy Empire is closer to Ekainak than the Allied States are.

Our North Sea Patrol can redirect it's course to aid peacekeeping efforts if neccessary. There is not alot else we can do to pledge support, we doubt you will need to, but Northwatch airbase will be open for you to use.

METEOROLAN PRESS RELEASE:

 

MAID (the Meteorolan Agency for International Development) has, in coordination with ASAF (the Allied States Air Force) to airlift food into the major urban centers of Ekainak. This is the most cruial spot to get food, ruirual areas still have last years harvest to consume, but the urban centers rely on trade for food.

 

Food packages are culturally sesitive and avoid religiously banned foods, like Chopped Liver and Eye-of-Newt. (OOC: Sorry, had to break the tension this was starting to sound too much like work!)

 

The first few airlifts have been completed and we hope to have most of the population fed within a weeks time. The Navy will begin distributing food by then.

 

Meteorolan forces are spefifically avaoiding MMRTA Island, as it is well known that this is a political hot spot and Meteorola does not wish for this aid mission to become politically charged.

We understand the need to conduct this operation without aid. ANother matter has come to our attention though, if you should happen to find any 'Shipwrecker' aircraft units in Free Ekainak we would be grateful if they could be returned. If you like the look of any of these aircraft when you come across them, we will be able to sell you new ones.

 

The planes were sold to FE, but as they will no longer be needing them, they may be more useful to our fleet air arm, currently undergoing minor expansion.

 

Thank You,

 

President Utsure.

Meteorola thanks the nations of Europa for thier support in this crucial aid mission. However your assitance is not required. Meteorola is more than able to support this mission, despite the cost. We have not doubts that this will be returned to us through Meteorola's economic expansion as a direct result of this mission.

 

Meteorola has declared the former currancy of Free Ekainak defunct. Between the lack of international trading of this currency and its apparent worthlessness even to the local communities, we have decided that Meteorolan Degrees will have to serve as the currency for some time. Citezens will be allowed to exchange whatever currency they have (F.E. or other currency) for Meteorolan Degrees- these will be provided at a premium, in an effort to help stir up the economy and to encorage citizens to exchange currency.

 

We have also decided that because of potential problems with rival ethinc groups policing one another (ie Sunni's being policed by Kurds in Iraq) that we will NOT be training military or police forces at this time. Meteorola's armed forces will continue to keep the peace.

 

We will redraw the map of F.E. as well. The country will be divided into 8 states. We will have elections at the state level, once stability is established. Universal Sufferage will be granted to all citizens over the age of 17. We see the future of F.E. being tied closely to that of Meteorola.

To: All Nations in Europa

From: Meteorla

 

Due to the potential for the development of a slave trade in Europa, triggered by TCN's outright disregard for human rights on an international scale, Meteorola will be holding local elections early. All tarrifs that once existed between Meteorola and F.E. have been lifted.

 

We hope these moves will help to pacify the people of F.E. so that they become niether buyers nor suppliers of this degrading and unethical way of treating human beings.

 

To bring about better defense from this disgusting trade, Meteorola is beinging the establishment of permenant military bases across F.E. These actions will prevent any such trade from entering the islands of Euorpa.

 

Our military has been the right to use force to prevent any shipments in Meteorlan, Ekainak and international waters.

 

Slavery is unacceptable in Europa.

The Baronic Council supports your annexation of the island of Free Ekainak. Be assured that the Royal Akiiryan Navy's Northern Fleet has been ordered not to hinder any Meteorla shipping travelling to the island. If necessary it will provide assistance and protection to your vessels. We hope that the relations between our states will continue to grow and flourish in the years ahead.

Mission was a success. 77% of marked marijuana and hemp fiber containers across FE's northeastern farming region were safely moved onto The Vindictor. 7 commandos wounded, 2 dead, all bodies and equipment were accounted for, enemy dead taken as well. Engaged only FE nationalists, Meteorolan forces evaded as commanded, which led to some resources being abandoned. Covert submersion of The Vindictor was successful, enroute to abandoned Brawandi port, will transfer MMRTA cargo to civilian vessel.

From: Vanarambaion

To: Meteorola

 

Although we have long been allies, we would caution our northern brothers to refrain from proclaiming themselves the leaders of the island nations of Europa. As an island nation, Vanarambaion finds this to be offensive, though we realize it was probably not intended to be so. As for the annexation, we are not unhappy to see the government of Free Ekainak crumble and support the end of the communist regime in that country. We support your actions, if not your words.

We meant no harm, but your foriegn policy tends to involve the mainland more than those of us in the islands, especially since the fall of the SSSS. Our foriegn policy has always been shaped by the islands of Europa.

 

None-the-less as a trusted ally we will always respect your opinion and foriegn policy. We absolutely recognize you, as our brother. We would encorage you to take a larger role in the islands, if it suites your interests. Know that no threat will come to your from the north.

To: Europa

From: Meteo

 

Due to continued tensions across Europa, along with our financial and military ties to the country formerly known as Free Ekainak, we have decided that they must have a voice on the world stage. Therefore, during the next round of national elections in Meteorola, the eight states on that island will be allowed to join the Alliance.

*********Meteorolan*News*Network*************

 

This is Reigny Day, reporting live from the glass enclosed nerve center of MNN in Stratus, with the latest election news.

 

With the first national election since the annexation of Ekainak less than a week away, Hurricane Eric's re-election bid is in jeopardy. Splinter groups have taken much of the wind out of the sails of the once popular Hurricane.

 

Opposition parties claim that the Hurricane was too ambitious when he annexed Ekainak so soon after receiving large numbers of refugees from Baltirow-Woud. "This drain on our resources is overly taxing the tax-payer and it is just wrong," said TS (Tropical Storm) Barry Waters.

 

Further destabilizing Hurricane Eric is a growing separatist movement in Ekainak. The Free Ekainak Now (FEN) movement is demanding more autonomy. Flags of the old Free-Ekainak Republic are a frequent site in the newly renamed cities that once made up that republic.

 

A much weaker independence movement has taken root among the refugees of Baltirow-Woud. Demanding all three of the Western Weathered Isles, which they call the Baltirow Islands, their numbers are not nearly as threatening to Meteorola.

 

FEN has threatened the use of violence if their demands are not met, however there have been no reports of any such actions.

 

************************************************

 

Hurricane Eric paced back and forth where the Council of the Weathered Isles had just met. There had to be a way to preserve the alliance without splitting into four independent states.

 

A knock came at the door to the large chamber, and it echoed throughout.

 

"It's past midnight, sir."

 

"Thank you." the Hurricane responded. He continued to pace after the messenger had left, then abruptly turned and walked out the door, saying to only himself, "There must be a way to preserve the Alliance without blood."

Day 1@20:00 Hours

 

*********Meteorolan*News*Network*************

 

Reporting live from Convergence in the former Ekainak, I'm Reigny Day. Thank you for staying with MNN on election night. We are now ready to project a winner in the race for Hurricane. MNN projects that Hurricane Eric will be re-elected as the leader of Meteorola.

 

Thank you, once again, for staying with MNN tonight. This has been one of the closest electoral races in Meteorola history. Despite lower voter turn out in Ekainak, especailly in the FEN dominated areas, as well as below normal turn-out among Baltirowese, elections have gone smoothly.....

 

********************************************

 

Day 1@23:00 Hours

 

*********Meteorolan*News*Network*************

 

This is Reigny Day live in Convergence where tragady has struck in several cities in Free Ekainak. Just hours after Hurricane Eric won re-election bombs were set off in several cities in the former Ekainak. Inspite of no claim of repsonsablity growing suspition among the victims believe that the underground organization of Free Ekainak Now, or FEN is responsible. The leader of FEN, Violens Isamust has not made any public statement, and the Hurricanes office could not be reached for comment......

 

********************************************

 

Day 2@7:00

 

*******From*The*Office*Of*The*Hurricane********

 

Press Release:

 

There comes a point in every civilization when one part tries to fracture and destory the wonders of that great nation. Meteorola has reached the breaking point. It is unjust, unlawful and unhuman for any group of people to use violence to force thier political ideology. This is a free market democracy where all wants and needs can be taken care of in a non-violent manner. There is only one time when the use of force is acceptable. To save the lives of innocents.

 

This is what the Meteorolan Armed Forces have now been authorized to do. I do this unwillingly. My hand has been forced by a well planned and well executed insurgancy, timed to disrupt the greatest gift that anyone could ask for, the right to choose a leader.

 

Hurricane Eric of the Allied States of Meteorola

 

********************************************

 

Day 2@09:00

 

*********Meteorolan*News*Network*************

 

Just hours ago I was reporting from the newly integraded city of Convergence into Greater Meteorola. I now am reporting from a war zone. A full scale battle broke out near new Meteorolan military instalations near town and angry supports of FEN, the movement to liberate Ekainak.

 

The Hurricane has order swift retalation and has imposed a curfew on all of Ekainak, though it seems unlikely that Meteorolan forces will be able to enforce this....

Honourable Friend and Ally,

 

The Prince and Baronic Council have authorised me to offer you assistance against FEN terrorists in the form of 1 platoon of Wereshishi (OOC: Special Forces Units, think SAS or alike), and, if required, a Sea Guards battalion (OOC: Guards units are elite line units within the Akiiryan Armed Forces. Sea Guards are roughly similar to marines).

Holy Imperial Press Statement

 

The Greater Holy Empire of Tagmatium, once an ally of the former Ekainak, deplores what is basically the military occupation of the island. It is obvious that the Ekainakos overthrew the Communistic Republic that once ruled the nation, and before any government could be set up, Meteorolan forces moved in quickly. Taking full advantage of the turmoil caused by the revolution of Ekainakos, which was done to make the nation more free and fair, Meteorolan forces desended into the nascent, democratic Republic of Ekainak and seized the island in the name of "democracy".

 

We never supported the setting up of a Meteorolan regime on the island, and reject the claims of "free and fair" elections for the eight states on the island. If the Allied States were truely in favour of democracy, they would let the Ekainakos rule their own nation, to their own ends.

 

To this extent, the GHET recognises the actions of the Free Ekainak Now (FEN) as actions of a legitimate Resistance organisation, in a similar vein to the one that acted against Tagmatine occupation in Sevrun, fighting for freedom against an occupying, powerful state. This doesn't mean that Tagmatium condones attacks upon civilians, but does support attacks upon any military bases, convoys and personnel, as well as any targets that weaken the occupying forces of the Allied States. The FEN is also recognised as the legitimate government of Ekainak island.

 

Meteorola appears, in the eyes of the GHET, to be attempting to set up a hegemony of all of the islands around the Weathered Sea and Sea of Kings. This is unacceptable, as this will dominate trade between Northern Europa and the rest of the region.

 

To this end, Tagmatium supports the actions of the FEN, and may even consider sending support to the Ekainak resistance movement. Violens Isamust is recognised as the true Premier of the Ekainak people, rather than militarist regime set to dominate the Ekainkos people. The GHET also opens its doors, as it were, to any political refugees feeling from the Meteorolan forces.

 

TagEdit: Meteo, would you mind if I combined this with the "Free Ekainak, A Country in Turmoil" thread, as they are about the same thing?

Vanarambaion Evening News Team

 

The Holy Confederacy of Vanarambaion condemns to statement of Tagmatium as contrary to peaceful relations in the region. Earlier today, a high-ranking official in the Vanarambaion High Command was quoted as saying:

 

"The move by the Tagmatium Government is the making of a huge rift between that nation and the mainstream nations of Europa. By bowing to and supporting terrorists, Tagmatium has lowered themselves to the level of the child-killers. If it were up to me, we'd invade them tomorrow."

 

The official made these statements on condition of anonymity. More information coming when we receive word.

The Prince, Baronic Council and People of the Sublime Principate of Akiiryu condemns the statement of support for the FEN terrorist organised issued today by the government of the government of Tagamatium. This act is indicative of the growing hypocrasy of the Tagamatine government, who on the one hand will condemn the CLF as a terrorist force, and use its military assets against said group while condoning, indeed supporting, the acts of terrorism of the FEN.

 

It is not hard to discover the motivations behind the Tagamatine government's support for the FEN terrorists, indeed the Tagamatine government has been quite open about them. Despite claiming to support the FEN terrorists because the Tagamatine government believes it to be the legitimate government of the Ekainkos people, the Tagamantine government supports these criminals because it objects to Meterola's control of the islands of the North Europan Sea. Simply put, the Tagamatine government is willing to cynically support a terrorist organisation that murders unarmed Meteo-Ekainkian men, women and children because it suits its geo-political objectives.

 

As of this moment Tagamatium has be placed on the Sublime Principate of Akiiryu's list of nations who support terrorism. As a result all trade and diplomatic relations with this state have been suspended until further notice.

OOC: Van, seriously, is that the Vanarambaion version of George Galloway or something? And when was the last time the GHET was in the political main stream?

 

Holy Imperial Press Statement

 

The GHET rejects the opinion of the unamed Vanarambion politician as childish, sensationalist and simplistic. Tagmatium mourns the day that a supposedly civilised nation can have such a man in high office. It is also another example of the Vanarambaion policy that whatever is best for Vanarambaion is best for Europa.

 

The SPA, however, is another matter. We reject the idea that the FEN is a terrorist organisation. It is a group of people acting against a government that has occupied a once-independent nation, with no invitation to do so. The acts of this group are the voice of the people of the former-Ekainak, who wish to govern their nation in their own name, rather than have it governed for them by the Allied States.

 

There have been crowds outside the Meteorolan embassy since the take-over. These crowds have in no-way been instigated by the Holy Empire or any of its agencies or organisatons. Rather, they are gatherings of Ekainakos citizens and like-minded people, protesting against military occupation of their homeland. Here is a quote which examplifies the actions of the Allied States:

The Hurricane has order swift retaliation and has imposed a curfew on all of Ekainak.

The actions of the H.I.N are in no-way contradictory to the actions of the GHET over Ekainak. The FEN are trying to rid their nation of a foreign occupier and re-instate independence and democracy, whilst the actions of the CLF are to over throw a legitimately elected government through violent military action. The CLF have even stooped to the low of using Ballistic missiles to strike a blow against the ordinary citizens of the Federation of Adaptus, something that the FEN have not yet sunk to. The FEN forces are moving against purely justifiable military targets, in order to free themselves of the shackles of the Allied States.

 

The GHET is also to freeze all trade and diplomatic activities with the SPA.
