3rd Valkan War

Postby Valkstadt » Tue Dec 27, 2011 6:19 pm

 Alexander Brunswick, leader of the Nationalist Party of Valkstadt (NPV) seized power when he along with the Imperial Valkan Army forced Chancellor C.Churchill to resign. The opposition to the Nationalists is  made up of around 50,000 radical anti fascists. The opposition is called the Valkan Liberation Movement (VLM). The VLM has launched a guerilla war on the NPV and sparked a civil war. The NPV has grown popular previous to the take over when Brunswick organized  military marches, parades and rallies. Brunswick has received the title of Kânz which means leader in Valkish. Brunswick has promised to defeat the radicals and restore peace to Valkstadt. He has also promised to cut taxes and spending to help the middle and lower classes. He believes that a totalitarian system of government allows the economy to flourish an promotes unity among countrymen. It also boosts the military by establishing a youth program training the Valkan youth in combat and brainwashing the youth to be loyal to the Kânz. The Kânz Youth Program will force all kids at the age of 10 to join for 8 years to become warriors and will eventually make the youth enthusiastic nationalists.

Adopt Fascist policies of regulation and indirect control of the economy, to mobilize it for war, and other centrally-imposed modernization plans, and you can count on New Othmanian assistance, both in building your industrial sector and in building your war machine, not to mention suppressing political dissent.

TO:New Othman
The Civil War is going well for Nationalist Valkstadt. We have the the VLM fighting a lost war. We have set up a youth program called Kanz Youth that will transform the young into enthusiastic Nationalists when they become 18. They economy will rebuild and the people will support the changes that were made. We hope there isn't any foreign intervention to try to help the non fascists. We are trying to crush the last of the VLM soon to prevent this from happening. We thank you for your support of our party.
Sincerely Kanz Alexander Brunswick

The previous government destroyed the economy,and took it out on the people by taking their money. The Imperial Senate became corrupt. They no longer worked for the good of the people. To avoid corruption I will get rid of the Imperial Senate and replace it with the Valkan Super Committee which would have 10 seats and would prevent corruption from taking hold. In our civil war we have pushed the opposition into the city of Wottenheim. We have evacuated the city an have laid siege to the militants.

"So," said the Supreme Judge, Emperor Alexander Whittingnet, flapping his wig around. "You say the government, after wrecking the economy, as they have every right to, 'took it out on the people by taking their money'. Isn't that what governments are meant to do?" He asked, slightly puzzled, moving on to the next grievance. He read: "'The Imperial Senate became corrupt.'" He paused dramatically.
"This is a serious allegation. Do you have any proof?" he asked as he looked down again.
"'They no longer worked for the good of the people.'" He paused again. "Did they abide by the Right to Own Stuff, when stuff means Property, Life, or Privacy? And maintain the rule of law? That's their only duty, really," he added, and read on.
"'To avoid corruption I will get rid of the Imperial Senate and replace it with the Valkan Super Committee which would have 10 seats and would prevent corruption from taking hold.' Hah!" he said suddenly. "A likely story! Why would this prevent corruption?" he wondered. "And so," he said, 'In your civil war you have pushed the opposition into the city of Wottenheim. You have evacuated the city and have laid siege to the militants'. Well, well, well. You haven't given us much reason to support your seizure of power. Therefore we shall launch a Judicial invasion... oops, sorry, I mean a Judicial investigation. We had better dispatch an aircraft carrier, half a dozen diplomats, and a lot of intelligence agents while we wait to see if you can come up with a better story that that. That is the decision of the court," he added, "and now you can try to persuade us that this former government behaved badly."

1. Surrendering of Arms

-All armed personnel (civilian and official military combatants) serving, or associated with the Imperial Valkish Army are to cease fire and lay down their weapons immediately.

*No Swiss Guardsmen forces will attempt to approach the undefended Valksish positions after the IVA's weapons have been surrendered.*


2. The Releasing of Prisoners Obtained During Wartime

(2.a) -The Swiss Guardsmen's Ministry of the Interior Police shall release all Valkish prisoners (official military personnel, government officials, and civilians), who are not currently being investigated for war crimes, back to their native nation.

(2.b) -All prisoners belonging to the Swiss Guardsmen's Imperial army obtained by Valkish military officials during this conflict are to be released to Swiss Guardsmen representatives in Army Group North's operations headquarters at Wottenheim. These prisoners (once safely under the protection of Army Group North) will retreat with the rest of the Army Group out of Wottenheim; thereby returning the city to the Valkish government.

3. Marx's Eligibility for Public Office

(3.a) -The Swiss Guardsmen's Imperial Senate has voted to allow Marx to remain in power if elected by the people of Valkstadt in an election based on a popular vote. Marx must wield a minimum of 60% of the vote to remain in office.

(3.b) -While in office, Marx (as well as any other Valkstadt executive) may not pass legislation that would ban, restrict, or otherwise impede upon the freedom of Capitalists in Valkstadt.

(3.c) -Marx must
(3.c.a) --- Allow Fitzpatrick to reenter Valkstadt,
(3.c.b) --- Discontinue all legal charges against Fitzpatrick and his company,
(3.c.c) --- Reinstate Fitzpatrick as a full-fledged citizen of Valkstadt (with every right guaranteed to the Valkish people by its constitution).

4. Regarding Valkstadt's Socio-Economic System

-The Valkstadt government must recognize the right of all Capitalists to participate in the workings of the free market without "significant government interference."

*Defines "...significant government interference..." as an attempts made to redistribute income, regulate a specific economic sector into oblivion, extend government assistance to specific business sectors, extend government assistance to workers unions, subject private businesses to financial control from a central bank, and place tariffs that represent 25% or more of an import's net market worth on a specific imported good...more may be added to further define "...significant government interference..." by the delegates at the peace conference as they see fit*


5. Reparations

-The Imperial Senate has voted to request that 12 [Twelve] billion Denarii be paid to the Swiss Guardsmen's Ministry of the Treasury for damages to Swiss Guardsmen military assets during the conflict.***

***The Senate has also voted, however, that it is willing to wave this financial demand in return for an agreement that Valkstadt's tariffs on products imported from the Swiss Guardsmen are to be waived for a period of 10 [Ten] years. At the end of this 10 [Ten] year period, the Valkstadt government may impose tariffs freely on products from the Swiss Guardsmen

The Glaswegian government believes this act breaks the first term of surrender. Your government also agreed to a second term of surrender from Zeiffelheim.

1. All Valkan combatants shall lay down their arms and register with the Zeiffelheimian Department of Military Intelligence.

2. Both nations shall release all POWs.

3. Valkstadt shall adopt a more democratic government.

4. Valkstadt shall allow its citizens greater civil and economic liberties.
Instituted socialism is a form of tyranny. The people of Valkstadt should, and shall, be allowed to make such choices as independent individuals. If a group wishes to form a socialist community, then they should be free to do so. However, if a group or individual wishes to live by capitalist ideals then he should be free to do so as well. Valkstadt's government shall no longer have any say in the economic lives of its people.
5. Marx may remain in power if he is fairly elected into office.

Your government's current actions break terms 1 and 3.

We believe your actions to be unnaceptable. I have sent messages to members of our former wars about this in hope they will come to Glasgia's aid. You must face the consequences of your actions.

Official Communique from the First Free Fascist Federation of The Cookish States under the authority of Chancellor Connor Paustain

We would first like to show our appreciation for the adoption of rightist policies in Valkstadt, but after we will show concern for the fact that your nation changes governments as often as I change my underwear. For the record, Mrs. Paustain demands I change them daily. Perhaps that puts how turbulent your nation is in perspective. We will protect our interests as well as our 1,200 men in Valkstadt on Fort Samson-Edgar which we gained from the first Valkish War. The men are not being allowed to leave the compound as they were previously allowed. The base is on battle station and we are not putting this guard down until reforms in Valkstadt cease. We demand this government choice be kept, or we will become less than helpful to your government. Otherwise, you have our support in your rightist endeavors.
Oh, is this sig supposed to make you laugh?

At the end of the Valkan War the Cookish States left pro fascist propaganda and while the current government ruled over Valkstadt the people wanted the unity, and were tired of the current government wrecking the economy and hiking up the taxes to fix it. Increasing the taxes did not only fail but it deprived the people of their money and caused many hard working families to go broke. By toppling this corrupt government the NPV hopes to give the people their money and give the unemployed jobs in the military serving the country.

Politburo office, Federal Sector, New Madison, USSW, 0935 NMST

At precisely 9:35 A.M. the President walked into the conference room, and the meeting of the President and his eight Attendants- who were actually his vice-presidents- commenced.
"Ladies and gentlemen," he said as he took his seat at the head of the table, "A fascist government has forcibly taken power in the nation of... let's see... ah, here it is, the name of the nation is Valkstadt. We're here to discuss what to do."
The Seventh Attendant spoke up. "We all know the options. Option one, declare war on the fascist government and help whatever rebels there may be. Option two, help the new government. Option three, sit back and do nothing. I'm in favor of option three." Several other Attendants murmured their assent.
"I'm in favor of option one," said the President, and the atmosphere around the table changed slightly. When it came to disagreements about fascism, there were sometimes... events that had happened to those who disagreed with the President. "Fascism can not be tolerated. There was another part of the message.... The President pushed a button, and a line from the message was read aloud through a system of speakers.
It also boosts the military by establishing a youth program training the Valkan youth in combat and brainwashing the youth to be loyal to the Kânz. The Kânz Youth Program will force all kids at the age of 10 to join for 8 years to become warriors and will eventually make the youth enthusiastic nationalists.

The Eighth Attendant immediately said, "I second the proposal to declare war on the new government."
"Hold on," the Seventh said, "You all heard that. If we do this, what's to stop that government from putting old people and children out on the front lines with sharpened sticks, or just their fists?"
"Simple," the Fifth said, "The government is still new. There are certainly a large number of people who still don't trust the government, or like it at all. There'll be refugees, too, fleeing the fascists to nearby countries. We could recruit them, give them training- real training, not the sham training that Valkstadt would give the elders- and have them fight with us."
"Is there anyone who will second the motion of keeping troops out of Valkstadt?" the President asked.
"I do," said the Third Attendant.
"Very well," said the President, "All in favor of staying out of the conflict?" Three Attendants raised their hands. "And all in favor of declaring war and aiding the rebels?" he asked. Five raised their hands, including the President.
"Very well," he said, "The motion is carried, and we hereby declare war on Valkstadt. Meeting adjourned."
The President stood up and walked out of the conference room, not looking back to see if the Attendants were following.


OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE TO ALL NATIONS INVOLVED AND INTERESTED IN THE RECENT FASCIST COUP IN VALKSTADT
From: BBJBS, President of the USSW

The USSW can not tolerate fascism in any form, or the forced conscription of children into the armed forces. The Politburo of the USSW hereby declares war on the new government of Valkstadt, and declares it to be illegal. We pledge aid to the rebels fighting against the corrupt "government", and offer training to any civilian or refugee who has fled the new government. The government of Valkstadt has forty-eight hours to surrender and be granted freedom, before the first of three million USSW soldier arrive on your soil, after which point only unconditional surrender will be accepted. If you choose the path of peace, you may yet go free, although it is not certain. But if you choose the path of war, you will have the deaths of thousands or millions on your head, and you will be at the mercy of both our government and the legitimate government of Valkstadt. You have forty-eight hours. To all foreign parties with forces in Valkstadt, we will not attack your troops unless attacked first. To the entire international community, we hope you support and aid us in this endeavor.

Signed,
BBJBS, President of the USSW, 0955 NMST

Kânz A.Brunswick delivers a speech at a Nationalist rally in the capital.

"It has come to my attention, that the USSW has declared war on the Nationalist Party of Valkstadt. I would like to clarify that by declaring war on the NVP you have declared war on Valkstadt. 
Brunswick pauses while the crowd cheers.
The NVP was fairly elected into power when the people voted 40 nationalists into a 50 seat Senate. We are not killing off the opposition party. We are simply fighting the violent fringe of the opposition. In response to the Ultimatum given by the USSW, We will not surrender! If you invade our homeland you will be met with bullets millions of fierce Valkans willing to die for what they believe in. 
Brunswick pauses again as the crowd cheers and gives the Nationalist strait arm salute.
The last time we fought a corrupt socialist government we drove them out of our land and toppled their communist regime.
We Valkans know what it is like to be oppressed by a communist government and we will fight until the streets run red with blood before we have another communist ruler.
Brunswick pauses once more.
So to all you communist pigs in the USSW we will fight with an intensity you have never seen. We will fight for every inch of Valkstadt so that we may be free. Mark my words… We will slaughter every single communist soldier that sets foot on our land.
The crowd cheers and salutes as Kânz Brunswick salutes and leaves the stage.
After the speech every able bodied man 18 to 55 began training for the war to come.

We thank you for your support. We would like to purchase 5 million of each. Most of our arsenal was confiscated at the end of the Valkan War.

"Oooh," said Emperor Whittingnet, "I wonder who's selling them?"
Considering the matter, he pressed a few buttons, and a new communication was sent through to Kanz Alexander Brunswick's government.

The Imperial Commonwealth, perceiving the lack of presented evidence of such corruption, considers your actions highly suspicious and is now actively considering the possibility that you have invented this story as an excuse to behave in a manner which we should be considered inappropriately illegal. Therefore we request and require that you immediately cease attacking forces of the government-which-you-consider-to-have-been-corrupt-and-former, and call upon you to enter into negotiations with these former persons to see if some settlement may be reached, or provide us with evidence of their illegality!

We would like to inform you that a division of marines have been airlifted into your lands from a carrier strike group (including two aircraft carriers, a battleship, fourteen other surface vessels, and six subsurface vessels). These marines are constructing a base in an uninhabited area of your territory to make our investigations easier, and to more easily enable a multi-element exclusion zone around your nation, within which we will attempt to interdict the passage of any armaments to your territory. This is only a search and return-to-place-of-origin operation, and will be ceased if you issue a statement stating that you will immediately cease attacking forces of the government-which-you-consider-to-have-been-corrupt-and-former. Surveillance aircraft are in operation over your territory to assist in this monitoring. Please note that none of these forces will do any damage to anyone or anything unless they are illegally interfered with. We consider their right to manoeuvre to be consistent with the freedom of navigation and intelligence-gathering, and if you damage them, we will get cross.

Finally, we definitely and publicly support your refusal to meet the ridiculous demands issued in the ultimatum from the USSW. Who do they think they are, to declare your manoeuvres illegal without properly investigating first? We are presently considering offering you support in your defence.

"Oooh," said Emperor Whittingnet, "I wonder who's selling them?"
Considering the matter, he pressed a few buttons, and a new communication was sent through to Kanz Alexander Brunswick's government.

The Imperial Commonwealth, perceiving the lack of presented evidence of such corruption, considers your actions highly suspicious and is now actively considering the possibility that you have invented this story as an excuse to behave in a manner which we should be considered inappropriately illegal. Therefore we request and require that you immediately cease attacking forces of the government-which-you-consider-to-have-been-corrupt-and-former, and call upon you to enter into negotiations with these former persons to see if some settlement may be reached, or provide us with evidence of their illegality!

We would like to inform you that a division of marines have been airlifted into your lands from a carrier strike group (including two aircraft carriers, a battleship, fourteen other surface vessels, and six subsurface vessels). These marines are constructing a base in an uninhabited area of your territory to make our investigations easier, and to more easily enable a multi-element exclusion zone around your nation, within which we will attempt to interdict the passage of any armaments to your territory. This is only a search and return-to-place-of-origin operation, and will be ceased if you issue a statement stating that you will immediately cease attacking forces of the government-which-you-consider-to-have-been-corrupt-and-former. Surveillance aircraft are in operation over your territory to assist in this monitoring. Please note that none of these forces will do any damage to anyone or anything unless they are illegally interfered with. We consider their right to manoeuvre to be consistent with the freedom of navigation and intelligence-gathering, and if you damage them, we will get cross.

Finally, we definitely and publicly support your refusal to meet the ridiculous demands issued in the ultimatum from the USSW. Who do they think they are, to declare your manoeuvres illegal without properly investigating first? We are presently considering offering you support in your defence.


The forced conscription of children as young as ten into a military force cannot be condoned. We refuse to stand by and allow this atrocity to occur. We sincerely hope that the rest of the international community will agree. USSW troops have orders to take Valkstadt civilians who are fighting against us alive if possible, although anyone over the age of 21, below the age of fifty, and in a uniform will be considered an enemy. We do not wish to subjugate Valkstadt, merely prevent a corrupt government from taking power. For any such government, with a single person who may make any decision he wishes for no reason with no constraints has obvious flaws, and many. Please stand by us as we fight to liberate Valkstadt.

Signed,
BBJBS, President of the USSW, 1315 NMST

Us the court are somewhat amused by the USSW's statement that they 'do not wish to subjugate Valkstadt'.
We quote:

Thank you for reminding us that we accidentally omitted to rule on that problem: the Imperial Commonwealth Courts has not found conscription of children as young as ten into any military force an illegal act on the grounds that they are no less intelligent than adults. Equally conscription may be justifiable in circumstances such as defence against complete 'liberation' by communist governments.

OOC: I'm not using 10 years olds to fight I'm using 19 to 55 while the 10-18 year olds train for the military.
Nationalist Valkstadt will allow Libraria and Ausitoria to conduct investigations and in the meantime we have Wottenheim surrounded so that nothing gets in or out. We will guard the entrances to the city and will not fire unless fired upon. We will mobilize the bulk of the military in defense of the impending invasion.

After considering the situation, President BBJBS has decided to hold off on the invasion until the inspection is complete, and base his action on the findings.

We, the government of the Imperial Commonwealth, are delighted to inform the all involved and interested parties that we feel in the position to lift the multi-element exclusion zone, given that the forces of Alexander Brunswick's government have ceased attacking forces of the government-which-you-consider-to-have-been-corrupt-and-former. Our investigation is ongoing, and any evidence you can present would be appreciated.

Somewhere near the Whittington Army Base in Valkan, the Admiral is speaking to the Emperor on a channel, which is not totally blocked off from outside ears, is sufficiently difficult to intercept as to be non-attributable:
"Sir, where are we meant to be looking for evidence of corruption? It's a bit thin on the ground. Everything so far is hearsay... by which I mean we heard people say it. Certainly some people say the previous government was corrupt. Other people say it wasn't. Which makes our investigation inconclusive so far."OOC: Is there any evidence?
"Carry on. There's nothing that can be done about it. Keep rolling the police vehicles OOC: Tanks around and asking people until you find something. And lift the multi-element exclusion zone. And keep an eye for foreign invasions. We don't trust anyone completely."
"Aye aye, sir."
The conversation then switched to a fully encrypted and totally secure channel.
"Also investigate any resource pockets, industrial facilities, or anything else of value, basically survey the entire country. We wouldn't want a foreign power getting hold of them, and we need to know where they are first. And they'll help with the investigation... by... um... providing information on the government-generally-considered-to-be-former's various and potentially illegal activities. Which they will, if anybody asks. To find out secret things you have to find out a lot of background information. So have fun."
"Naturally, sir."
"Good. Do report every day. Fare well."
"It will be done, sire."
The conversation ended.

OOC: the only solid proof is the trend. If you look at the trend the economy dips twice. Once during the Valkan War and recently it hit it's all time low which is why the nationalists took power.

The Imperial Commonwealth announces that the investigation has so far discovered recent economic upheaval, but that former records of corruption are somewhat clouded. It is noticeable that there is considerable present corruption however, and we invite Alexander Brunswick's government to comment on that situation while we continue our investigation. We would like to remind all parties that such economic events may merely be the enforcing of sensible regulations on over-excitable private operations, and as such are hardly valid grounds for revolution.

The piece of evidence I will present to the international community is since Nationalist rule the economy has shot back up 20 pts, the tax rate has dropped from 45 to 41 and we have been recatagorized from corrupt dictatorship to father knows best state. If this isn't enough evidence for you than prepare for war.

Esteemed Kanz Brunswick,
We the Imperial Senate on behalf of the Emperor and the people of Roma V would like to congratulate your regime in finding and strengthening your country's national identity. At this time where your government is undergoing the transition to a new era we understand there can be misinterpretations and misunderstandings of the situation in your nation when taken from the perspective of a foreign country. We ask that in the face of such adversity you exercise prudence and honor in overcoming them. We would also like to take his opportunity to propose that your new administration pursue the virtues of a republic in order to pave the way for a bright and prosperous future for your country.

With Honor,
