It was nearly 2 am. Captain Rogers ordered us to load the planes, and get the troops moving. I thought we were heading to the Aussie Islands but what happened next none of us expected.
We were flying for another 4 hours. I assumed we were now going to Wintery for some training mission or to New Aussie Land to help reinforce or relife the garrison there. The Pilots and the General were talking, over some issues and they got loud. General Muhammad was frustrated, I could see it in his eyes. As Battalion Captain I thought I should go help him, so I got up and I heard soemthing over the Radio.
"Infront of you and the Royal Parliment. I declare war on the Islamic Liberation Organization!"
We were going to war.
Top News: Pack Member Arrested, Suspected of Plotting to Kill First Princess Lucia
Pack members who have gotten in through the recommendation system had taken a hit in the reputation when Lia Ambers had tried to kill the empress. Again, they face scrutiny when Jason North, a Pack member of sixteen years, was discharged and placed under investigation for possibly plotting to commit murder of a royal family member.
The investigation turns up when the psychiatrist who was psychologically evaluating North to determine his fitness placed in a recommendation to have him placed on extended leave when his results turned up possible anger towards the royal family, more specifically First Princess Lucia. As we all know, her marriage is not popular but the announcement that she could inherit the throne if her brother was unable to had caused major backlash, believing Lucia - who had been called a Communist Traitor by her worst critics - or any possible children she may have shouldn't be able to have the chance to inherit the throne at all. Pack members were not immune either, some resigning after the wedding as their "last, loyal service".
It was unknown why Jason North had remained if he did not support the marriage either, but when his wife had turned in a journal that gave multiple detailed plans of assassinating the princess, some believed that was the motive. With First Princess Lucia being the PRCJ, she's safe, but the information is disturbing.
North's Pack commanders say the plans are too detailed and too many to chalk it up to venting and want to fully investigate, hopefully before the princess' next visit home. At least, North will be highly recommended to seek help, if the journal proves to lead to something genuine he will face serious jail time.
Opinions of Those Who Are Against First Prince Ericson Succeeding We must remind you these are opinions of the various citizens and not fact
"He isn't exactly the best in foregin affairs and seems more into the military. Will that lead us to become a military state?"
"First Princess Lucia receiving the throne will actually be the ultimate show of us not caring what beliefs you are."
"Second Princess Gem might be shy, but I don't think she was never given the proper chance to prove herself. I mean, we've seen snippets of how tough she can be."
"It's favoritism. Clear and simple. First Prince Ericson is the Empress' little boy and he was picked because of it."
"I think First Prince Ericson would have been better off in the military than on the throne. His heart has always seemed to be there."
"Second Princess Gem had been more for the people than her siblings. She was the perfect person to take over for her mother."
"First Princess Lucia was just as great if not better than her brother. I think it's anti-communist pressure brought by b the people, the royal advisory board, and possibly the empress herself that prevented her from being picked."
"Call me old school, but I preferred four for four on female leaders."
"Honestly, I just don't think he's the type to settle down for this job. He's been more about getting up going."
"Like or hate her husband, First Princess Lucia would still have been able to provide an heir. First Prince Ericson hasn't even expressed his interest in finding a wife."
To Come: Rare Interview with the Empress We see her in press conferences, but being able to get a one-on-one interview with Empress Amaryllis is next to impossible due to her security being even tighter since her shooting. Before that, she had a much busier schedule than her children. We hope to use this opportunity to bring some answers to some much anticipated questions.
THIS IS A NOTICE FROM THE TRIUMVIRATE OF MEONESIA TO THE CITIZENS OF MEONESIA:
Thundera recently broke the secret treaty allowing Meonesia to take half of Great Britain. All three triumvirates have thus deemed the government and people of Thundera "untrustworthy".
In light of the actions taken by Thundera, all 294 residents of Meonesia whom are Thunderian citizens, or were born in Thundera are hereby ordered to leave Meonesia immediately. Any Thunderians who fail to do this by the end of this year will be imprisoned.
Meonesian residents will not be allowed to visit Thundera, and vice-versa. All Meonesian peoples in Thundera are asked to leave immediately, or stay there permanently.
We have also placed a full embargo on all Thunderian goods in Meonesia.
July, a month known for the heat, Summer, and beaches, has not left Poltics and War without any interesting events. I intend to list major events on the National Affairs RP with this blog post.
July 1st: Calondia Returns, the Assimilated through the future project, and Meonesia (R.I.P. for now) starts funding OPECK. July 2nd: Angela Merkel resigns (and is assassinated), Texas Falls, and a bunch of other nonsense happens. July 3rd: Opeck Liberated, the Galactic Republic arrives on Orbis. The Republic invades Germany. July 4th: Chernigov announces that it is an Inter-Dimensional Empire (Yes, I planned that from nearly the beginning), Narvan and Calondia ally, Germany withdraws from the OSCO.
Skipping many dates until recent.
July 13th: CNS Pride of Ruthenia Sunk, not much else.
Skipping again, and Meonesia gets banned for a month around this time to July 24th...
Around July 24th: Abu Haddad Returns July 24th: new religious heads appointed. July 29th: World Leaders gather in Novus.
(I know, I skipped many things in this time.)
So... First post on this new Blog. This will be for my thoughts on certain matters, such as Politics, Wars, Music, and other things.
Music - Vocal or Instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, or expression of emotion. Does Modern Music follow these different definitions of it? How about I compare modern music, say Rave Music, to, for instance, the works of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, or Wolfgang Adameus Mozart, to name a few. In particular, we will be looking at Requiem - Lacrimosa for Mozart, and the 1812 Overture for Tchaikovsky.
First Question. Does Rave Music produce beauty of form? Constant Electronic Beats that hurt peoples ears, Definitely not. As for the classics such as Requiem? Hmm, one tone for most of it... Yes, in my opinion, it passes with flying colors.
Second Question. Does Rave Music provide harmony? Perhaps, when you look at it from a certain perspective, however when you take a closer, and I mean closer look (well, listen really), it hardly seems to be in harmony with the song at first, but in a way it can. So I say it hardly, and I mean like 0.003% of it actually reaches that. As for the Classics such as Requiem and 1812, it mostly follows it.
Third Question. Does it show emotion? With Rave Music, it is kinda hard to tell, as it mostly seems like a child who has no musical talent trying to make music. Of course, I am not saying Classical Music is perfect either, but I would definitely say that Lacrimosa shows sadness, mourning. (I mean seriously, the name itself literally translates to weeping!). As for 1812 Overture, it is in memory of the victory of the Russian Armed Fores over France in the Napoleonic Wars.
(I may have been a bit to biased towards it.)
Breaking news! A large object has been seen in the sky in earth orbit! An image is posted here.
As you can see, This large object is in the sky. It is certainly not a moon. It is measured to be about 650 kilometers in diameter. As people describe, one minute the sky was clear, and the next minute, it appeared. It stayed there for one hour, then disappeared. Everyone is shocked. This object has been dubbed the Man-Made Moon. There has been no answer to what this is, but there are theories.
The Afribuskyoslavic military was on high alert. A weapons system was detected on this object. The weapons system is predicted to be capable of doing major damage to the planet. Multiple transmissions have been sent to the station. No answers were received. The Government has also given permission to the meonesian government to set up military operations in Afribuskyoslav.
MODIFICATION OF MICROWAVES INTO INDESPAQET WAVES USING WAVE MODIFICATION VIA CROSS RADIATION AND SINGULARITY
USING INITIAL THEORY DEVELOPED BY ALTIM INDESPAQET
Ultraviolet waves were shot into a singularity at the same time. Unfortunately, the singularity "vaporized" before the waves reached the singularity.
USING SAME THEORY
After many calculations, trial two begun. Before the ultraviolet waves were delivered to the singularity, the singularity was bombarded by several Francium-223 isotopes, in order to increase the mass of the singularity by a minuscule amount. With perfect timing, a computer system shot the ultraviolet waves into the singularity for an extremely small amount of time. 0.00000000327 seconds before the singularity disappeared, the 538 ultraviolet waves reached the singularity and it was successfully observed that the Indespaqet Waves were created. Unfortunately, there was no way to control them, so for three full seconds (3.031 seconds), the Indespaqet Waves did not move, until they disappeared mysteriously.
SAME THEORY, WITH A MODIFICATION
The previous experiment was done exactly the same. However, at the exact time the ultraviolet waves turned into Indespaqet Waves (within a millionth of a millisecond), 538 singularities were created in positions in which they were able to effect each and every indespaqet wave (the computer systems were able to obtain the path of each Indespaqet Wave in the previous experiment). The Indespaqet Wave trajectories were drastically affected by the singularities. The Indespaqet waves traveled extremely fast this time. In fact, they went faster than the speed of light; the computer systems were unable to collect data on the indespaqet waves, except every once in a while as the Indespaqet Waves bounced around the chamber. When Fr-223 was shot into the chamber, it decayed in less than a millisecond. After about 293 seconds, the Indespaqet Waves began disappearing. After 384 seconds, there were no more Indespaqet waves in the chamber.
The singularity at the beginning that was to be bombarded with ultraviolet waves had it's mass increased as it was bombarded with (213) Fr-223 isotopes. The UV Waves were released at the same time, and as the singularity had a greater mass, it was not destroyed as the ultraviolet waves bombarded it. The singularity eventually released, inexplicably, all of the ultraviolet waves as Indespaqet waves, though the computer systems managed to detect they had a slight different shape as the already deformed Indespaqet Waves. These new Indespaqet Waves, dubbed IndeWa2, slowed down time. They went at 0.348 lightspeed.
Same trial, more mass. Waves traveled at 0.284 lightspeed.
EVEN MORE MODIFICATIONS!!
Same trial, even more mass! Like lots of mass! It took Fr-223 thirty-nine and a half minutes to decay.
These experiments were done many more times.
In the end, the Meonesian scientists have finally figured out the formula to travel at hyper-lightspeed, without experiencing time dilation.
With much heated arguent and fighting these past couple of hours with the Royal Family squabbling and arguing.
Prince Hans I was recalled earlier this evening after he posted his thoughts on Emperor van Reimerinks actions,
After he was recalled he was demoted (Valauable and reliable informant), Prince Leopard I tweeted " Emperor van Reimerink better send him back or face much worse than Evenstar tanks rolling into the Dutch Royal Palace." Causing some concerns that Prince Leopard I might make a move on the Capital.
If Prince Leopard I is to be recalled, it would allow Princess Victoria to make a plea to regain her throne, which most of the Royal Council agree with. We do not think Leopard I will be demoted but we are aware that all 4 Princes are fighting with it being 2v1 with Prince Harrow not siding.
Prince Harrow who was leading the 1,000 men and women of the Royal Aviation Korps into Sardinia has been seen back in Dutch Europa, has the Invasion suceed or has it gone down in disaster, we do not know but hope to hear something soon.
We also can confirm 1 Destoryer was sunk in the Northern Isle sea, Caledonian Forces were able to save all lives, 12 were injured. 3 Evenstar fighters were also destoryer.
After hours of online bickering between Brothers Prince Hans I and Emperor van Reimerink, it sees the leaks were true as Prince Hans I was seen in the Royal Palace, very angry of course. He did say just minutes ago that "This is not the Empire our mother had left behind, and that all deaths that occur in South East Asia are on the Emperor hands!
Prince Hans I has been reported to been demoted from Field Marshal down to Brigade General. Rumour has it he will be sent to serve under Prince Leopard I, or he will remain in Dutch Europa and lead the 2,000 or so Imperial Defense Forces protecting the nation from an attack.
Prince Harrow has also arrived, he has not spoken but has been in contact with the Royal Family and Prince Hans I, he is currently at the Royal Defense Coordination Center.
Leopard I has called the demotion and recalling of Prince Hans I absurd and that " Emperor van Reimerink better send him back or face much worse than Evenstar tanks rolling into the Dutch Royal Palace."
26 June, 2006
The blueprints for the MTS Impossibility have been completed and updated. Of course, it is likely they will be updated further (in fact it is inevitable); these are simply initial blueprints.
The Artificial gravity will be generated through centrifugal force. The hyper-lightspeed systems will also be run by thousands of Sviatoslav reactors, as well as the Indespaqet Wave Generator which will prevent the ship from being affected by time-slowing due to relativity.
The weapons systems currently include:
10 (Ten) All-Directional Firing Devices, firing: Celehyperthermal Torpedoes, Vacuum-Detonating Bombs
3 (Three) Controllable Singularity Torpedoes
Supreme Commander Eket believes these weapons are currently sufficient for the 28 day voyage.
(OOC: Sorry for terrible blueprints all I have is MS Paint)
With the War changing our everyday of life, I have taken it upon myself to keep spirits happy.
With the first Blog entry we will be posting the Newly Monarched Emperor and Empress. Princess Victoria who was ineligible to become Empress as soon discovered as per the Royal Council Guidelines. For every Empress or Emperor there must be a counterpart, basically saying that the Empress would need her Husband Prince Leopard I to become Emperor, but becoming Emperor would remove him of his command of Dutch Europa forces and replace him and make him Commander of the Gareregiment Grenadiers en JÃ¤ger. With war calling, Prince Leopard I was called to the front. Prince Harrow who could have been the next Emperor was not married and is not in a relationship, thus disqualifying him. Prince van Reimerink being the only married prince left ascended the throne, naming him the Emperor. Grand Emperor Josef has become the Grand Emperor who can intervene in state-affairs and oversees the affairs of the state and the empire.
Emperor van Reimerink who has taken the throne merely hours after Evenstar had declared war. He had trusted his Military Leaders and brothers to lead the Royal Dutch Army into battle. Although some major changes have occurred in the Royal Armed Forces. Empress MÃ¢xima has gone out into bunkers to meet with Civilians and to talk with the people, Prince can Reimerink ranked 7th in most Loved Royal Family member,
1. Prince Harrow 2. Empress Wolf 3. Princess Victoria&Prince Leopard I 4. Emperor Josef 5. Prince Algela 6. 7. Prince van Reimerink&Princess Maxima
2005 Royal Family rating.
With his popularity rising after his successful military planning, and success attacks. He has seen the fall of Sardinia in weeks, although Military Consilatats say the invasion is failing and could see Prince Harrows Death instead, a major blow to the Empire and could bring the chance of Emperor van Reimerink's rating to higher to never even happening.
Some speculate the Emperor wants to steal the throne, even helping mangus give Evenstar the intel, although we do not normally share conspiracies, this is a widely debated topic receiving 2 million votes in topics.
Former Member of the Royal Military Strategic Planning has said that "Think about it, Evenstar declares war exactly when the Empress goes missing, Prince Leopard, Prince Hans I, and Prince Harrow are called into service, with Prince Hans II in Jakarta with the task of defending it. Hell Evenstar gains much more, if Emperor van Reimerink has promised them access to the East Indies for resources and trade, we would take a huge blow"
Member of the Royal Guard and Mentor of Emperor van Reimerink has said these allegations are bogus "How could he even plan this war, Prince Leopard I could have rejected his command, which he did in the German Dutch War, although there wasn't much fighting. There are more concerns for the people, we need to rally behind our leaders and not divide among who is most fit to lead.
Well, thats all for tonight folks, tune in at 90.9 FM for tomorrows addition of the Royal Amsterdam News Agency

Unlike her mother and grandmother, Empress Amaryllis had never been in a hurry to pick who would succeed her. Tradition would place predictions on First Princess Lucia or Second Princess Gem be chosen, but many had speculated that First Prince Ericson would be chosen due to him possibly being the empress's favorite.
This favor had increased due to First Princess Lucia loosing popularity over her relationship and marriage to Chairman Tenchi Mitsunari and Second Princess Gem's shy demeanour that would prevent her from being an effective ruler.
The decisioon, as stated, is the empress's but the people and the advisory board has placed pressure to make that decision, believing it would quell some fears and also establish some faith in the royal family as it had taken a hit after the wedding and divorce. Some had also stated that another attempt on her life could happen and so an heir should be chosen.
When the empress was addressed with this decision she issued this statement.
"I'm not dying last time I checked and choosing successor is a big decision. All of my children whave qualities that would make them great leaders and I won't snub deny the other two for petty reasons."
This was met with negative reception but as it was known, the empress could only make the decision and we of Wintery will have to wait a little longer.
In the early 1990s a technology was discovered by Narvanese scientists whilst trying to create an atomic reassembler. This technology, this breakthrough, was unlike anything Narvan had discovered prior. It wasn't until 2001 when Narvanese scientists finally managed to form a use for this new technology. Limitless energy they claimed, and through mathematics they proved it. Yet despite this, the energy absorption techniques were inefficient to harness large amounts of energy. Thus, only small portions of the grandiose amounts of energy produced were able to be stored. The discovery, dubbed "The Singularity" revolutionized Narvanese science ever since.
In 2002, the city of Narscotia was built. It's purpose; to create an environment for Narvan and Nova Scotia to send their scientists to cooperate in technological advancement. Thanks to this city, Narvan was able to begin its path to modernization, as for Nova Scotia, they were able to learn the advanced medical technologies Narvan had been holding from the rest of the world. Many other scientific discoveries and experiments were located in Narscotia, not just technological sharing but advancement. Finally, after five long years of hard work by first Narvanese scientists, and then in a collaborative effort with Nova Scotian scientists, Narvan has finally developed practical applications for "The Singularity" energy generation.
Several new technologies were invented in order to make the new technique possible. Shield technology progressed with immense priority, as this factor was the most limiting.
The EM Absorption Shield is manifested by shield projectors, which projects a field onto the designated location. The generated "Shielding Field" would originally cause energy to dissipate - which while potentially beneficial for future defenses against energy based weaponry, gave the opposite effect of what the science team was aiming for. However, with sufficient alteration to the shielding, the "Shielding Field" was retuned to absorb the energy given to it. Due to this normally overloading the projectors feedback restraints, another new technology was invented to compensate.
Energy Feedback Capacitors were thus invented to properly regulate the energy accumulation presented from the "Shielding Field". The capacitors then redirects the energy to another newly invented technology - Quantum EM Storage Cells.
Traditional Storage Cells proved inefficient at storing such large amounts of energy, which contributed to extreme energy loss and extremely short lifespans for the small amount of batteries capable of storing the said energy. However, the Quantum EM Storage Cells reduced both the size needed for the battery, as well as improved the amount which could be stored.
The current facilities using outdated techniques have all been scheduled for refitting, due to be done by the end of the year. The estimated new practical applications however are still limited. While QEMS have been designed to be as small as possible, they're still far too large for practical purposes. The energy generation process itself also takes up entire facilities, thus removing the chance of it currently being used as a replacement for nuclear power on naval ships; however the possibility for general-storage scale QEMS have been explored as such a replacement.
So far, there has been zero environmental effects observed. It also should be noted, that the EM Absorption Field also acts as the Singularity Containment Field, which when breached, causes the Singularity to collapse upon itself, causing no serious damage to the surrounding area. Safety concerns however are still present, as such there is research on the topic of whether or not there are any long term affects.
Not long after the marriage of First Princess Lucia, the nation has been shocked to hear the divorce of the empress and emperor.
Considered to be the perfect couple and both within a religion that rarely sees divorce, the empress has expressed that the marriage had ended due to drifting apart shortly after the attempted assassination attempt.
"Perhaps it affected him more than he wished to admit. Tragedies can bring families together or tear them apart." She stated to reporters
Rumors have circled around that maybe Emperor Ajax had not been as supportive of his daughter's marriage as believed. Others said it could be he fell in love with another woman. More rumors reported that he became disillusioned with the black of power he had compared to the empress.
First Prince Ericson had said nothing on the subject besides disappointment while First Princess Lucia gave a more detailed statement.
"How could I not see it. I mean, was I too caught up in my love life to see that my parents' were talking apart? Did they hold off on this until after my wedding so not to hurt me? If so I don't know if I wanted them to tell me beforehand."
The now former emperor had not commented and it is rumored he planned to leave the kingdom. Second Princess Gem had refused to comment.
OBEY. WADDLE. PROSPER.
As the Empire digests its newest Herringsraum into the Greater Penguin Nestingland, members of the Nestingchancellery authorized the first wave of colonists to settle the depopulated holdings on the edge of Krakkian territory. Colonists are advised to be on the lookout for armed resistance, and to remember that hard work breeds strength in spirit. Colonists Will Be Determined By Random Lottery, Failure To Relocate Is a Terminable Offense!
As the size of the Nestingland has tripled after its conquests, experts predict less food shortages as the Empire industrializes its new coastal areas. Enlist today for an additional Herring Ration!
Please Stand By, for a speech from our Bird-Emperor:
Failure To Respond To State Salutes Is A Terminable Offense! Loose Beaks Sink Fleets: Report Dissent And Odd Occurrences Immediately! Failure To Report Eggs With Odd Number of Speckles Is A Terminable Offense!
Today, on January 7th, 2006, President Mychio Kaeyu fulfilled his promise to the people. On the 5th of January, President Kaeyu brought forth legislation to the Senate which would decide on whether to restore the Monarchy. The vote passed in a 85 - 28 - 36 majority in favor of 'Yay'. Signed into law by President Kaeyu on the 6th, the legislation has officially sent into practice today, January 7th.
OVERALL BREAKDOWN OF THE VOTE(s):
Narvan First Party: 17 - Voted 'Yay', 12 - Voted 'Nay', 28 - Abstained
Narvan Traditional Party: 68 - Voted 'Yay', 2 - Voted 'Nay', 3 - Abstained
Parliamentarians: 12 - Voted 'Nay', 1 - Abstained
Social Democracy Party: 2 - Voted 'Nay', 4 - Abstained
Throughout the nation, cheers and celebration occurred once the news was announced. It was revealed that His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Prezyan was being held in a country-side manor under house arrest since he was handed over by the Khevinist authorities. However, the rest of the Imperial Family had managed to remain in hiding alongside other Imperial Loyalists. When the coup occurred, nearly 20,000 soldiers within the Imperial Military defected and stayed loyal to the Empire. As a result of this, President Kaeyu has issued a mass pardon to any deserters which deserted the Federal Army after the coup in 2003. His Excellency, Crown Prince Henrym himself had arrived on the 6th from the nation of Finland, where he was hiding alongside several other family members as well as Loyalist forces. Other Loyalists were identified as hiding in Sweden, Ryas, Athretvari, and even Nova Scotia. Nearly 500 soldiers which defected in 2003 were hiding within the Sahara, have since exited and are in process of returning to the nation. People throughout the nation hail these loyalists are heroes, as well as regarded President Kaeyu a true patriot.

WAR AND EXPANSION
Hello and thank you for tuning into our second edition of CNN: Chassie National News! From internal problems to foreign affairs, we've got you covered on CNN!
A.) Lord Areton: Stance on the Brittanian-Republic War
B.) State of the Chassie Military
C.) Expansion into Ohio
--Lord Aretons Stance on the Britannian-Republic War--
"I'm sure that you all know of the current conflict between our ally, The Federal Republic, and the Brittanian Empire. The conflict arose when two Britannian transport planes were shot down by The Republic. As far as I know, there were no talks between the two nations, instead, Britannia hastily declared war on The Republic. After this declaration, the GMR and Chernigov declared war as well.
I have heard that Dean Monroe of The Republic has called for peaceful negotiations and both parties have agreed to attend. As for us, the Small Council and I have decided that we will not be entering this conflict until the peace negotiations have failed. If the peace talks are not successful, Chashul will most definitely enter the war alongside our ally, The Federal Republic. Thank you."
This was a statement released by Lord Paramount Areton earlier this evening. It seems that Lord Areton is hoping that the peace talks will end this war and improve relations between The Republic and The Holy Britannian Empire. He has also made it clear that if these talks do not go as planned, we will be entering this war. We will now be moving onto our next story, stay tuned.
--State of the Chassie Military--
We spoke to Lord Maelor Chashul, the commander of the Chassie Forces, about the current state of our military.
Reporter: Hello Lord Maelor, it's good to have you on our show. Lord Maelor: No problem, it's always a pleasure. Reporter: Let's get started then.-- As you probably know, we might be dragged into this war. Lord Maelor: Yes, I am aware of our chances of entering the war. Reporter: I'm sure many of us would like an update on the state of our military. Lord Maelor: Of course. Lord Maelor: We currently have over 200 thousand military personnel. Approximately 100K in the army, also just to be clear, we are counting reserves" Reporter: That's fine. Lord Maelor: We have about 75K in our naval forces, not to mention that we have 50 ships. Also, 15K personnel are operating within the Chassie Royal Airforce, we have a total of 55 aircraft. Before you ask, yes, there will be drafts if the war drags on for longer than expected." Reporter: Do we have enough resources to actually get involved in any sort of conflicts? Lord Maelor: Yes. Reporter: Oh. I was hoping for a more detailed explanation. Lord Maelor: You asked if we had enough resources, and I answered, nothing more detailed is needed. Reporter: Well, thanks for your time Lord Maelor, I'm sure you have more important businesses to attend to. Lord Maelor: I'm sorry, are you being sarcastic? Reporter: Onto the next segment!
--Expansion into Ohio--
Last week, the Chassie Forces moved into a region that is called "Ohio". Ser Jeor Duskenfell, the master of arms of the Small Council stated that the reason for this action was in order to secure four regions for our expansion. The reason for this land grab, he said, is to "mine the hell out of the coal mines". Ohio is known for its natural gas and coal, not to mention the natural beauty. Ten thousand citizens have been moved into a city which has been named Stormfell. There has been little to no resistance, as most of the natives were moved into small reservations.
Thank you for tuning into the second edition of CNN: Chassie National News!

Nova Scotia Atlantic News: Spy Op's in The Colonies - Newfoundland
A lone spy by the name of Alexander will sent to Newfoundland today as a Government Imperial Located-Listener (GILL for short). I.e: Someone who surveys the needs, and wants of the people for the government by partaking in political discussions with normal people on a casual level. So essentially this gentleman will be doing the first ever trek to the colony of Newfoundland to gauge public interest of government interventions on particular issues. He will be responsible too for collecting information on foreign action inside of Newfoundland such as; counterspy workings, hostile faction centralization, and general anti-government sympathizing. As far as the Federation knows, there is very minimal hostile activity in Newfoundland, although they can't be certain, and that is exactly why Alexander will be sent in to audit the colony.
His workings in Newfoundland will change the way Nova Scotia govern's the colony, and depending on what the government finds out, it may even be swayed to change their title. As The NSF is a rather deceiving title seeing as they have colonies all over the world. It would be fitting to declare themselves an Imperial Federation. As there is no semblance of a democracy in place right now, it would be misleading to even dare call themselves a Federal Republic. So that may be a product of this program, although who knows.
Freedom of speech in a government run Media outlet is a rather strange thing no?
Imperial Government Announcement
With the decisive battle finally concluded, Japan, now Calondia, has been once again reunified! The air campaign was a victory with no losses, the Imperial Family is back once again in Kyoto and all things foreign have been burned and discarded. People are rejoicing in the streets having been liberated from tyrannical rulers. Peace is finally restored to the great empire. With this triumphant victory we can start looking to new horizons and reconquer old territory. Only one nation was our true ally and friend during this conflict and will remain for a thousand years, Narvan, the greatest ally a nation could hope for stood with us during our most desperate hour. Due to our isolationist policy we will be withdrawing from the international arena and closing our borders to all nations besides Narvan. No other nation will be allowed to enter our sovereign territory and all diplomatic envoys will be stopped at the border and sent home; we finally achieved our greatest goal and will treasure it forever, never again will the greatest empire on the planet fall to ruin.
Imperial News Team
Wow, what a great conclusion, I almost thought for a second we wouldn't make it and the communists would be victorious. Right at the last second the air campaign broke though and destroyed all military facilities on the border and continued to raid Japan, the Imperial Army then marched through and were cheered on by the populace as liberators!
Garry: Right Alice, makes you proud to be Calondian! I even heard the traitor Shinji Mitsunari was killed in his mansion from a bomb off target, well supposedly off target, and he died cowering behind the walls of his estate. He claimed to be for equality but he was nothing but a greedy tyrant who just wanted all the land. He deserved a traitors death but I guess I can be happy with this outcome.
Alice: Yes he certainty was a traitor and a coward. With his regime toppled and his succession non-existent, a new time of peace and prosperity is awaiting us. However this could not have been possible without our unwavering ally Narvan; we expected more of our other allies but I guess they couldn't be bothered to support such a silly thing like national liberation of a sovereign people. I am glad we won't be dealing with them anymore and will instead be focusing on more domestic concerns.
Garry: Yes exactly right, no longer will we be forced to obey the will of foreign tyrants and imperialists trying to deny us our ancestral land. It is ours and it will always be ours! However even though small, the lives lost and the soldiers who fought in this glorious conflict will be remembered and revered. Even in such devastating victories the horrors of the front are frightening; before we move onto our next program we will be reading aloud some journals from the heroes who fought in the Calondian Liberation War.
November 1st: I wonder if they will come today. Last night it drizzled and there was a breeze, making me feel rather uncomfortable. When I awoke at 4 this morning, rain clouds filled the sky but there was still a breeze. The swell of the sea was higher than usual. However, the clouds seem to be breaking.
I have become used to combat, and I have no fear. In yesterdayâ€™s raid our air force suffered no losses, while nine enemy planes were confirmed as having been shot down and three others doubtful. Battle gains are positively in favor of our victory, and our belief in our invincibility is at last high.
Some doughnuts were brought to the officersâ€™ room from the Field Defense HQ, which were made by the Nanto Detachment. They were awfully small ones, but I think each one of us had 20 or so. Whether they were actually tasty or not didnâ€™t make much difference because of our craving for sweets. Each one was a treasure in itself. While eating the doughnuts, I lay down in the sand, and I pulled out the handbook my father had bought for me and which was now all in pieces from a bomb fragment. As I looked at the map of my homeland, which was dear to me, I thought I would like to go to a hot spring with my parents when I get home.
I thought of going there, and here. This map of the homeland, when back home, would be of no use other than for traveling. Right now, it has spiritual meaning rather than a material value: a meaning that is 10 times its value by making me happy and by consoling me.
Alice: Beautiful, our country is so important to all of us, it is a dream come true that we finally have it back.
Garry: Is that a tear I see Alice, I think we were all brought to tears with the announcement of our complete victory, but this solider. . it meant so much more to him. With this settled, we will be moving on to the daily military news report of Calondia, led by General Abe, there is still some areas that need to be pacified and there are still socialist strongholds off island. We still need to be vigilant until the enemy has been completely eradicated. Stay tuned viewers for the areas where you should avoid or at least stay indoors.
Calondia Military Announcements
General Abe: Citizens this is your conquering general successfully returned from the front, as you are well aware, Calondia is finally liberated and we can rest easy a bit. However there are still areas of this great country who have yet to see the light. The following broadcasts are live and it is advisable to stay indoors in you are in the affected area.
Announcement: The area around AKITA prefecture has seen rebels fleeing to the north; there is a suspected rebel stronghold built underground in Oga; the naval bombardment has not succeeded in eradicating them and the Imperial Army is sending troops to burn them out of their base.
Unfortunately the rebel position in Sapporo is strong with the city still under socialist rule, the light bombardment has not succeeded and the population is firmly socialist. The army has encircled the city and laid siege but guerrilla tactics from rebels all around HOKKAIDO and specifically in Chitose are making the task difficult. The air-force and navy is assisting in any way they can but the air-force senior command thinks a more indiscriminate bombing tactic is required, such maneuvers have been denied for now with the Army planning to liberate the city like the rest of Japan with few civilian casualties.
Rebels are fleeing Japan, now Calondia, to relocate to their annexed colonies to regroup, even now rebels not engaged in Oga or Sapporo are moving from Wakkanai and the surrounding region in boats avoiding the reduced Imperial Navy to flee to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and make their way north. If you encounter rebels on this route please avoid them and call the military police when you can to report their activities.
Anarchists in Kyoto are causing trouble with theft, assault, and vandalism. The end of socialism, return of Calondia, and increased military presence has left some disenfranchised. They have been causing problems but their criminal activities are being rooted out as we speak and their terror will end soon enough. 38 criminals have been arrested so far and more will follow; the population is large and the military police have to prioritize but with help from honorable citizens reporting their activities we can stop them sooner. Similar chaos has been seen in Tokyo.
This ends today's military broadcast.
Garry: That is it folks, thanks for listening to this historic broadcast, we will ever stand victorious over our enemies. With renewed vigor Calondia will rebuild and eradicate all socialists and foreign presence from this country. Glory to Calondia.
Today, November 1st, 2005, only a mere two months before the Narvanese General Elections, President Cornelius Bysren was indicted with election fraud. In a special committee organized by the N.T.P. which began earlier in the year in secret, the committee investigated the claims of election fraud in the original elections held in 2003. The claims were of that the N.F.P. had rigged ballots in major population centers, and used military force to prevent voting in smaller population centers. Finally after several months of investigation, the special committee has indicted President Bysren (and the N.F.P. as a whole) of election fraud, and misuse of power.
With the elections drawing near, this presents a significant blow to the popularity of the President. For months, Mychio Kaeyu has been campaigning nearly non-stop, and is considered to be the only candidate whom has enough popularity to question Bysren's victory. N.F.P.'s failure of the execution of the Genetics Acts coupled with the indictment has severely lowered such reputation, and it is becoming increasingly probable of a Kaeyu victory.
Apart from a Kaeyu victory, there is substantial support for the resurrection of the Imperial Monarchy. It has slowly become common, albeit unspoken, knowledge that the Federal Government has been holding His Imperial Grace, Emperor Prezyan IV, captive in a country-side location. Some political experts claim that should Kaeyu promise to reinstate His Imperial Grace in some manner as head of state, his victory will be an overwhelming landslide.
