Something stirring in Karthenia?

Esteemed leaders of Europa,

 

It is with grave unrest that we have to bring you the following news. The previous week, the Orioni government gave her permission for a reconnaissance flight over a small part of the Karthenian territory. Karthenia is a country in northern Europa, ruled by Senator Gauis as most of you will remember. Our reconnaissance plane returned with some concerning news about the situation in said country.

Together with the news scarce fugitives bring forward after they illegaly crossed the border, we feel obliged to inform greater Europa of the situation there. It seems that civil chaos has errupted due to the inactivity of the local government. Combatants and armed bands flourish in this civil chaos, reflecting the breakdown of central authority rather than loyalty to a political faction.

 

We believe that this tragedy cannot be left unattended. There we wish to call on all willing European nations to take part in a donor conference, to be held from 5/feb/2005 to 15/feb/2005 in Corona Borealis, our northernmost colony. Delegates from every European country are invited to attend. Our goal is to gather as much aid as possible, with by service or cash.

Please consider taking part in this. The Karthenian people need your help. Don't let this chance to help millions of peoples pass you by. Let your participation show that you care for others.

 

Signed,

Empress Orioni

Re: Karthenia

 

Vanarambaion will take no part in this conference, which we see as a thinly veiled attempt to expand Orioni influence in the north of Europa. We cite the following:

 

1. At the time Orioni organized the colony of Corona Borealis, and her other colonies all over the world, she firmly agreed that these colonies would be for no other purpose than trade with the various nations around Europa. Now we see a conference organized in just that territory that will determine the future of Karthenia, without so much as making contact with Senator Gaius. This is unilateral action, and Vanarambaion condemns this and all other occupation moves by nations around Europa.

 

2. We are asked to believe, sight-unseen, photos taken by illegal Orioni spy planes illegally flying over the sovereign territory of a fellow nation. Even Orioni, if she can produce the photos in question, cannot prove conclusively that any action is warranted based on the photos alone. So either this move by Orioni is pre-emptive and hasty, or she has been using other illegal means to obtain information about what she refers to as "civil chaos."

 

Instead, Vanarambaion calls on all nations to condemn the high-handed measures already employed by Orioni and ignore this conference to impede on the sovereignty of a fellow nation before this is used as a precedence to invade your nations as well under the flimsy pretext of unsecured evidence of "civil chaos." Stand up for your right to govern your country as you see fit.

Count us out. Until there?s proof that Karthenia is REALLY messed up, we?re forced to think that this is only a silly attempt to get p0w4. Besides, peeping on the other countries is extremely bad. First is a spy plane, later, is a bomber.

Subject: Karthenia in Turmoil?

 

The Greater Holy Empire of Tagmatium would be honoured to attend any converence on the future of Karthenia, so long as an attempt is made to get in contact with the former government of Karthenia before any action is decided on the nation. Tagmatium will stand by its most consistent ally in its hour of need, and will provide any aid it can towards the people of the nation.

 

We could probably provide a force of soldiers to help police the area until further notice, but this comes at a tight time for the Tagmatine military, as we have one corps deployed on our northern border and in Deltannia, and a second in the Lesser Jaihu Basin territory, as well as our navy operating in our waters.

 

We are, however, shocked at the reaction of several nations, who shall remain nameless, as to their response towards the situation in Karthenia. They are refusing aid to a nation in its hour of need, especially one that is their ally.

Re: Reactions

 

 

We are simply amazed at how partisan several nations are, regarding the dire need of the nation of Karthenia. There has been no evidence shown that can prove there are alterior motives behind this, and that the Nation of Orioni is acting in the best interests and welfare of the People of his neighboring counries, in the absennce of Gaius.

 

I strongly condemn these responses, and reassure Orioni that the Upper Strathyclyde Government will attend.

We will not attend this conference, as we see it will deteriorate into a land grab over what was once a great nation. Should such an event occur, our government will take action.

As said: it was a reconnaissance flight. I believe Akiiryan airplanes are also allowed over Orioni territory. How else would passenger get to travel here?

 


TO: Vanarambaion

You are mistaken. If you had read your sources correctly, you would have found out that our colonies Andro and Meda are military-free. Nothing was said about other colonies. We want no quarrel with your nation, being old friends who stood shoulder to shoulder many times before.

Your reluctance to support humanitarian aid shows your true face.

Nothing was said about invading or taking over former Karthenia. Seeing the current situation in your nation, it would be very unwise of you to anger your international friends.

Thank your for accepting our invitation. Your delegates will be welcomed kindly and with honor. As said before, the conference will start the 5th of february 2006.

Your decite amazes the Baronic Council. Your reconnaissance flight (conducted mb a Military aircraft is quite different from a country to country flight civilian commerical airliner. Indeed, the Baronic Council very much doubts your state would appreciate, let alone allow, Akiiryan military aircraft the freedom of your airspace.

I'm afraid that then Akiiryu would get even more upset about that, since a simple recon flight is outrageous. even with the best interests in mind. Bear in mind that commercial airline flights did not discover SS-4 missles in Cuba.

FROM: The Vocenae Empire

 

Vocenae will attend the conference, since it concerns the future of a northern nation Any decision reached about Karthenia's future will have major impacts on the northern region. However, we are not without concern as to why Orioni military planes were flying in another nation's airspace, regardless of the political situation in said country.

 

The Imperial Council requests that Orioni, in the interest of promoting and maintaining international ties, supply the recon photos taken during the period of time that the planes were in Karthenian airspace. Also, the Council supports the idea of a commission being sent to appraise the situation.

Deltannia was responding to the suggestion of a conference being set up or not. Our opinion on whether or not the original flight was allowed has not been given. Our position on the original matter at hand will not be released at this time.

We are part of a major alliance, perhaps it is you who should be thinking about support from the international community. It is simply that we are concerned about the annexation of Karthenia by your forces. Should this occur, we would be forced to take action as we are opposed to the imperialistic ambitions of many nations today.

If we were going to be invading Karthenia, we wouldn't have announced it. Also, our reports are based on both air reconnaissance and "news scarce fugitives bring forward after they illegaly crossed the border".

 

We state again: "Our goal is to gather as much aid as possible, with by service or cash. Please consider taking part in this. The Karthenian people need your help. Don't let this chance to help millions of peoples pass you by. Let your participation show that you care for others."

The Imperial Council requests that Orioni, in the interest of promoting and maintaining international ties, supply the recon photos taken during the period of time that the planes were in Karthenian airspace. Also, the Council supports the idea of a commission being sent to appraise the situation.
To show our intentions are sincere, we will provide you with a brief overview of the most dire situations.

When our weather satelites picket up the big plume of smoke in the north, we didn't believe the situation could be this dramatic. A couple of days later, reports came in that the firestorm was heading southeast, approaching our colony Corona Borealis. Due to lack of Karthenian cooperation (they didn't answer our calls), we saw no other option but to send a recon-flight to see for ourselves what was going on out that.

And when this aid has been delivered? What then? Does the once great nation of Karthenia become the next province of empire of Orioni? Or does it become a puppet of the LT states in the region? We would love to see what is to happen, given that Karthenia never asked for 'aid' or for military spyplanes for that matter. Our reports show that the nation of Karthenia is still capable of maintaining it's integrity without imperialistic nations meddling in it's affairs.

Chairlady Ethne Davey smiled for a moment, thinking about how relatively well the whole conference had been organised, even though things had to be done at a much faster pace then usual. "A small succes to begin with", she thought to herself. "Let's just hope the rest of the conference will go as smoothly.."

 

"Hrm-hrmm.. madam chairlady?", an assistent whispered. "I believe the delegates will be arriving in the conferencroom soon. And you will be pleased to learn that the Deltannian government sent representatives as well."

 

Mrs. Davey was pleased to hear the Deltannian government put their doubts asside and decided to join the conference. With all of the Karthenian neighbours taking part, besides many others, the first points on the agenda could be dealth with soon.

 

"Thank you for the message, Sandra", she replied the aide. "We wouldn't want to keep them waiting now would we."

 

Both left the small office with a view of lower Corona Borealis, and made their way to the conference room.

Agenda item 1: Extinguishing massive fire in southern Karthenia (Gara-area)

 

Chairlady Ethne Davey (Orioni): It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome the honoralbe delegates from Upper Strathyclyde, Pirilao, Tagmatium, Adaptus, Vocenae, Scipii, and Deltannia. My delegation would like to thank all participants for joining our conference this soon. We hope that you all had a good trip.

 

The first item on our agenda tonight is what we deem the most threatening danger coming from Karthenia at this moment in time. As you may have read in the concise report all participants received yesterday, an oil refinery in the Karthenian city of Gara caught fire and exploded after weeks massive strikes by the security-personal and plant operators. This has fire already spread to nearby forests, and is threatening other nations as we speak. The following slide will make the situation clear to everyone.

 

Figure 1

As is clearly shown on the slide, you can see the fire is spreading from Gare in the centre, to southern parts of Karthenia. The plume of smoke caused by this massive fire has already covered parts of eastern Adaptus, northwestern Corona Borealis, and western Tagmatium. Both cities New Biggen and Boreapolis are directly threatened by the assumed path of the inferno. It is of vital importance that we try to extinguish this fire as soon as possible, before talking about sending relief-aid to southern Karthenia.

forest fires is somthing our nations fire service is not used to, our services are working around the clock to try and distinguish the flames, by means of aircraft and hoes. we lack the equiptment to bisperce such fires. the large city of New Biggen is in exream danger, and the flames are on the very outskirts of the city.

 

we also have several reconosance units ready to be sent across the border if more infomation is needed.
