Azbekistan Rebel Recruitment Den leads to arrest of 17 in KSIB sting

August 18th, 2021

By Dinesh Colak

 

The Khanikstan Special Investigation Bureau acted out the end of a seven month sting into an Azbekistan Loyalist camp located a short 13 miles outside the border city of Okara. This marks the second Loyalist camp being surrendered in just the last two weeks. The fact that the camp was located so close to a major population hub was quoted as "unimportant" after Lead Investigator Jaasir Bukhari took the podium Tuesday afternoon.

"Okara is deeply loyal to His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Kahn and the Communist Party and the most recent census backs up that data convincingly,"  he said with a noticeable bead of sweat dripping down his brow. "The low numbers at this recruitment meeting is being seen as a positive, no matter the distance to a larger city"

When asked if there were firearms found at the camp, Lead Investigator Jassir Bukhari was definite in his answer that none were found on the premises.

"While the KSIB is ready to admit that the Azbekistan Loyalist numbers were larger than originally expected, we are still deeply confident that the Azbekistan Loyalist rebels are unarmed and harmless. They're closer to evangelical cult leaders than a rebel milita at the way they are standing now." Bukhari doubled down on that statement a few minutes later in the conference by confirming that no current investigation into the Azbekistan Loyalists has led them to the conclusion that they have access to firearms. "The same precautions His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Kahn put in place to keep guns off the streets and out of the hands of the general population are working against the Azbekistan Loyalsts just as well.

The seventeen men present ranged between the ages of twelve and thirty five according to arrest records given to The Khanikstan Observer. It is unclear how many were already members prior to the camps siege. 

Thirty six KSIB Agents stormed the camp with the assistance of a nearby stationed division of the Khanikstan Armed Forces for transport purposes. The raid was reported to have taken less than seven minutes to complete. 

No shots we're fired during the raid. All seventeen men are facing 25 years in prison or 10 years of military service as per the Khanikstan Constitution's clear treason laws. The Khanikstan Observer was not allowed to speak with any of the arrested criminals

Supreme Leader Hamad Khan announces opening of the Khanikstan Foreign Office, invites wurld leaders to Manahal

September 3rd, 2021

By Dinesh Colak

With a surprise announcement out of Manahal today, His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Khan took to the podium today and announced to all wurld leaders that Khanikstan was looking to make diplomatic ties with the international community. With economic opportunity being the bulk of the speech, His Respected also reassured the Khanikstan citizens that the war weary populace will need not worry about engaging in international warfare.

"We have absolutely no interest in pursuing any conflict abroad, and all diplomatic relations will exclude military related discussion." He said, understanding why the 20,000,000 Khanikstianians are weary of opening the borders. He continued his speech by assuring that infrastructure development and economic stability are the two main focuses of the party. "As long as there are regions of the country that do not have road access to a major city, electricity in their homes, or water coming from their faucet, The Khanikstan Communist Party will not rest"

Logistically, the KCP faces a few challenges ahead in actually receiving foreign diplomats, as the countries singular airport in the outskirts of Manahal boasts a singular airstrip. Another concern is the highly militarized state of Manahal. With it being home to 65,000 active duty soldiers spread between four separate military bases. The state department has continued to struggle with transitioning their bloated military and its resources to a more suitable deployment now that we remain at peace. This will continue to be a barrier to getting wurld leaders to enter the capital for the first time in decades.

A party insider has shared with The Khanikstan Observer that foreign investment for a massive solar power restructuring of the electrical grid is at the top of their list. With a massive untapped labor pool (an astonishing 47% unemployment rate), another focus will be on construction of a port on the south of Chen lake to make exporting and importing goods much easier.

Khanikstan Defense Force to transfer 40,000 troops out of Manahal

September 6th, 2021

By Dinesh Colak

The Khanikstan Defense Force announced the transfer of roughly 40,000 active duty soldiers out of Manahal in an effort to restructure the deployment of the astounding 500,000 active service members. The KDF chose not to release specific numbers at the press conference led by the Head of the KDF General Turan Saban, where he assured that a large majority would be transferred to the south-east city of Okara. The KDF pledged that 6,000 men would be reassigned to the newly announced Operation Thrive, a military initiative to begin the construction of roads connecting the rural villages of Khanikstan to each other. The Khanikstan Observer was unable to acquire a map of the planned construction at this time.

The removal of the troops is a good first step to making Manahal a potential destination for foreign diplomats. General Turan Saban did clarify that upgrades to the nations sole airport was a "non-priority" and reasserted that Operation Thrive's primary focus is on infrastructure that directly improves the lives of the citizens of Khanikstan. 

The press conference ended abruptly when a reporter asked Saban if the troop transfer to Okara was related to the August 18th Azbekistan Loyalist raid. "The Khanikstan Defense Force will not be making any decisions based on the whims of a cult". He left the podium immediately after his response.

      Kubism is now an officially recognised religion
      Alphonse von Wallenstein, 09 December 2018 15:12

      Pictured: A young "kommando" paying his respects to the Murder Cube at the Prince Willem Museum (2004)
      The Department of State officially recognised Kubism as a religion on Thursday after more than 50,000 Rhodellians (roughly 0.5% of the population) declared themselves as 'Kubists' in the 2018 census. Kubism was (originally) an ironic pseudo-religion centred around the worship of 'The Murder Kube' and the glorification of violence. 'The Murder Kube' is an unofficial name ascribed to an unnamed 2004 art piece created by Peace Movement-affiliated artist Norm Alfred. It is a large, hollow cube meshed together from hundreds of decommissioned firearms. It is currently housed in the Prince Willem Museum, Gottesberg. Alfred originally envisioned the art piece as a lasting monument to peace through the destruction of weapons of war. But as beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, this was not to be. At some point in the late 2000s, an image of the art piece was posted in a 'gun gore' thread on the 'Weapons' board of a popular anonymous imageboard with the intent of shocking its users. It had the opposite effect. Users of the board instead began (ironically) revering it as a pseudo-deity and a physical manifestation of war and violence (past, present, and future). They went as far as to write lore, songs, and slogans in The Murder Kube's name, the most famous being 'Ave Nex Alea'. In the early 2010s, the Murder Kube (along with Kubism) leaked onto the mainstream Rhodellian internet as a popular internet meme aligning with Rhodellia's martial culture and conflict-rife history.
      By 2015, Alfred's art piece would eventually become the unlikely pilgrimage site of many thousands of young Rhodellian netizens. They would not be Alfred's fellow Peace Movement activists. Instead, these unintended visitors would come wearing gas masks, plate carriers, and meme patches. They would sling old surplus rifles (jokingly referred to as “nuggets”) on their backs and wear bayonets on their belts. Each would typically kneel to the great monolith, offering tributes ranging from cans of Chef Royardee to 'milk for the cornflakes'. Together they would chant "Ave Nex Alea" or "Cheeki Breeki", among other tongue-in-cheek slogans and pop culture references . They saw no symbol of peace, but a glorious tribute to death and destruction. To them, this was their almighty monolith: The Murder Kube, or "kube" for short.
      Every year, hundreds of thousands of young Rhodellians embark on pilgrimages to pray to the Murder Kube. This makes it the Prince Willem Museum's star exhibit as well as one of the most popular tourist sites in the entire country. Pilgrims now come from all walks of life, not just users of the anonymous imageboard where the Murder Kube originally gained traction. They range from students wishing for the best marks on their school marksmanship exams; to conscripts entering National Service after college; to boots praying for success as professional soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors. This tourism facilitated growth throughout Gottesberg. The Prince Willem Museum greatly expanded its facilities and transferred the Murder Cube into bigger halls of residence at multiple points. The Gottesberg City Council still works to rapidly upgrade road, rail, and tram infrastructure all over Gottesberg to increase their capacity. The city's tourist and hospitality industries expanded to cater to the year-wide influx of pilgrims. None of this shows any sign of slowing. What started out as an in-joke from some shady corner of the internet has since grown into a staple of Rhodellian popular culture.
      News of Kubism's acceptance as an officially recognised religion went viral across the Rhodellian internet. Thousands took to social media to express their joy or disbelief. The majority of responses appear positive thus far with many Rhodellians netizens celebrating this development as a cultural victory. On the other hand, many other internet users felt more skeptical, disappointed, or concerned. Alfred himself said in an interview with RNN that “the joke went too far” and that Kubism’s recent recognition as a valid religion was a "letdown to the many other smaller and unrecognised cultures present in our richly diverse and multicultural nation”. Notorious conscientious objector and Peace Movement spokeswoman Halfrid Weber said in another RNN interview that "the acceptance of [Kubism] as an officially recognised religion accomplishes nothing. It will only reinforce negative stereotypes about Rhodellian people and culture. Hasn't the rest of the wurld laughed at us enough?". Whatever people have to say about Kubism's new status, countless young devotees (whether ironic or unironic) will continue to embark on long pilgrimages just to see the Murder Kube and praise its glorious name wherever they may be. From the look of things, it seems that the Murder Kube, Rhodellia’s unofficial patron deity, is here to stay.

      TAVLIGA TIMES
      KANZLER VON OSTLAND INJURED AFTER ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION
      IN TAVLIGA TODAY THE KANZLER WAS SHOT TWICE IN THE ABDOMEN BY AN UNIDENTIFIED ASSAILANT. The Kanzler was shot at around 10:30 AM as he was leaving Tavliga Palace after a meeting with the Grand Duke. The would be assassin used a handgun to shoot Kanzler von Ostland twice, once in the thigh and once in the abdomen. The man was shot on the spot by Palace guards and is believed to have now died, however another man was seen running from the scene just prior to the shooting, and it is unknown whether he is involved. The Kanzler was rushed to the Royal Wilhelm Hospital by an Army ambulance, where he received first aid. A spokesperson at the hospital stated that the Kanzler was no longer in critical condition but remains unconscious.
      This comes after a series of threats from the Rebel group, Native Baltian People’s Army, which advocate for the abolition of the Grand Duchy, and the creation of “ethnically pure” baltian states. The NBPA are against the Dolchic Baltians having the most power and wealth in the country, despite them being the largest ethnic group. In 2007 the NBPA took over the town of Helsing, and killed all of the Dolchic Baltians before Special forces stormed the town hall and took out the fighters. According to Transbaltian intelligence,  leader of the NBPA, Miklos Herthon, was ousted in an internal coup last month, the current leader is unknown.
      The Grand Duke was transported to an unknown location by helicopter after the shooting, he has not yet returned but is supposed to be making a speech later today. The armed forces have been placed on alert across the country, and two naval destroyers have been recalled from anti-piracy missions. The unknown man running from the scene is still being searched for, and the city of Tavliga is being shut off by police and Landswehr. It is unknown yet who is in control of the government, as there is no official line of succession for the Kanzler. The government is expected to make a statement soon.

      Polstjärnan - Digitala Nyheter (Anglish: North Star - Digital News), better known as Polstjärnan, is a Finan online news website, and the primary news source for many Finans. The company was founded in 1993 by Emrik Östberg in Karolinaburg, originally as a newspaper-magazine covering local events and occasional national events, though often even these were in passing references unless they were major events. Despite its limited coverage, the paper became wildly popular throughout the nation, especially in its detailed and relatively unbiased coverage of the Velescian War, bringing attention to the utter incompetence of the military operations in Östranka and the great loss of life which resulted from it. During this time, Polstjärnan also had a large online presence, even owning one of the first webpages in Fina on a fledgling public internet. Polstjärnan became fully web-based in 2004, a controversial move at the time in a country with underdeveloped web infrastructure, however it ended up paying massive dividends for the company, as it grew rapidly along with Fina's internet usage. Polstjärnan is currently one of the most profitable countries in Fina and is currently trying to expand outwards from the country, expanding its wurldwide event coverage and offering articles in Anglish, Dolch, Lysian, Cristinese, and Vellander, with more languages likely to come as the site develops.
