TAMS I Rocket, on test pad.

 

Stockholm - The Prime Minister of Upper Strathyclyde, in one of his last addresses before the elections, announced a joint venture of Upper Strathyclyde and Orioni to launch twin probes to the Planet of Jupiter. It will take Decades to get the program started, but once it is complete, the mission is slated to begin Late April, Early May. It will take years just to reach the Red Giant. With any luck, we'll meet our new friends, and then fry them for dinner in an Intergalactic Fish Fry.

The much anticipated saving Sickle ABM projectile.

 

 

 

US Government - The people in Upper Strathyclyde were relieved when the Anti Ballistic Sickle Missle collided and blew off course the dangerous Nuclear warhead, launched by the Red Army faction of Ide Jima. The ABM Missle System, though 70% complete, was enough to thwart this cowardly attack. The ONI Units that were assigned to Ide Jima are expected to move in tommorrow.

Stockholm - The Prime Minister announced this evening, that upper strathyclyde would commit its brave, and peace loving forces to prevent the out break of major engagements, and return stability to the war torn region of Hidaya Miliki, and to combat the spread of unrighteous and arrogant imperialistic annexation of territory all in the name of freedom and defense against the Xheng Regime. While the Prime Minister condemned both sides, he made it clear that as of now, there are no plans for the immediate invasion or occupation of any nation or territory, but stresses if things get further out of hand, such measures would surely be considered. He urges all parties to come to the peace talks, and come to the table to discuss this as men.

OOC: My nation can't even support a standing military of 500 million. Fully mobilized, Vanarambaion has less that 200 million, and hovers around 100 million much of the time. A good way to determine what you can handle is between 2.5% (peace-time/peacekeeping) to 4% (world war/invasion) of your population. Anything more than that starts to degrade your economy dangerously.

Oslo - A large explosivbe device has gone off this afternoon, at the National Revenue Service, NRS, Headquarters in Oslo. A massive explosion destryed 3/4 of the NRS Building, which houses over 500 Government employees, including a daycare center. Many speculate as to wether this was a right wing terror group, or a radical religous group. There is currently very little to disclose, as the government is keeping things down until a Formal investigation takes place. The death toll is already over 60 OPeople dead, and 102 Injured. More to come as it comes in...

This government has commented elsewhere upon this sickening attack. To reiterate, we will be sending 10,000 tulips for a memorial garden, along with the head of the Rekamgil Horticultural Association to help design a new garden.

 

Now that we have seen more details, we announce that our Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Nayr Aquilini, will be flying immediately to Stockholm to see what this government can do to help and, if possible, if we can assist in the investigation. The Secretary of the Interior has already launched an internal investigation within Rekamgil to ascertain whether there is any Rekamgillian link to this terrorist attack. While in Stockholm, Secretary Aquilini will attend the peace rally celebrating Pirilao's stand-down.

 

All of Rekamgil stands with you. This government will do anything it can to help, just say the word!

 

Peace.

 

P.S. Please see this thread for more details on the "tulip transfer": http://s7.invisionfree.com/Europa/index.php?showtopic=2081

We graciously accept all help from any nation. This nation is going through some tough times, and some of our citizens for some reason, feel the need to take radical violent outburts, upon our innocent Civilians. There is no repression of political freedoms. We allow as much, or as little demonstrations as any citizen feels they want. There is simply no excuse for this disgusting and vile act.

After hearing of the terrible news, this government sprang into action, initiating a nation-wide investigation. Wire-taps were set also and, as a result of one of these, the DOR Police Service has apprehended two suspected terrorist collaborators.
