Gen. Regara Beliur to be Appointed Supreme Allied Commander of IFC Rapid Reaction Force
Guadalupador News Today
-Divouga, Guadalupador- After several days of deliberation among the Grand Premier and the Cabinet Ministers, the decision to appoint General Regara Beliur as Supreme Allied Commander of the International Freedom Coalition's Rapid Reaction Force didn't come as much of a surprise among military personnel, especially to those in the Federal Army. The occasion comes after the recent landslide victory over an Ausitorian-run administration within the IFC leadership by Timmothy Moorston, Shazite Ambassador to the IFC.
With a new leadership comes a new cabinet, and the Federal Union of Guadalupador had the chance to appoint a Dorian as a new Supreme Allied Commander in charge of the IFC's military operations at large. Grand Premier Marcos announced today that General Beliur is: "...the most qualified man within our armed forces to effectively command a multi-national force. He held the line and helped turn the tide in Bethuana. He is a hero and I honestly couldn't think of anyone else who could conduct an operation as well as he can. His loyalty and love for his fellow soldiers is like no other."
The official announcement to the IFC council that General Beliur will be appointed Supreme Allied Commander is to come within the next few hours at the most, as Myra Soymian, delegate to the IFC Council, is already in session in Kairaku. General Beliur graciously accepted the appointment put on him by the Grand Premier saying that he's eager to serve alongside his friends and allies in the multinational RRF.

State of the IFC
It's been two weeks since the Shazbotdom Ambassador to the International Freedom Coalition took his position as the Prime Minister of the alliance. In his short time as head of the organization, he has accepted several Left and Right wing nations, promised simplification of the Government, and continues to attempt reforms throughout the Alliance.
At first, the former Prime Minister kept causing problems within the Council Chambers, and the offices of the building. Disturbing the peace on several occasions. Thankfully, though, he has stopped causing problems for the time being. Rumor is, also, that the Prime Minister is drafting up the legislation needed to make the changes to the Government in the manner of its simplification. Sources from within the IFC have stated that they don't know what is in it, and have not seen the physical bill, but know that it is in the works as the Prime Minister has been in meetings with his Cabinet on and off for the better part of a week.
Keep your eyes on the Shaz City Times website for more information about events within the International Freedom Coalition as they become available. We now have staff on scene at the IFC Headquarters around the clock for up to date information on the happening within the Body.

Remnant National News



URA Stands With Vangaziland


Olympia, URA

In a statement made to the press today, President Gabriel Drake released a multi-piece statement on the situation in the faraway nation of Al-Khalifiya, as well as the wayward nation's recent conflict and Remnant ally Vangaziland's involvement in the nation.

"Vangaziland has spent the last year fighting a war of liberation in Al-Khalifiya with no support from the international community. And single-handedly, they have overthrown a government, armed a populace, and given voice to an oppressed people. They now fight a guerilla war against an insurgent populace alone. That loneliness will now end."

"The URA, as well as a coalition of other nations, are lending our support to take the strain of our ally. Proud Remnant soldiers will now stand shoulder to shoulder with our Vangazi friends, and our newfound Lauraisian and Gebetan partners. Together, we will crush the guerilla Red Wind forces and finally bring peace to the nation and the people of Al-Khalifiya."

President Drake followed these statements with a plan to send a trio of Ares class Amphibious Assault Ships from the 4th Navy to transport Remnant ground forces as well as air support. This small task fleet will be escorted by Charon Replenishment Ship, a pair of Hades frigates, and a Metis class littoral combat ship. This seven-ship task fleet will be carrying all the supplies and personnel required for four battalions of the Remnant 9th Army to set up a forward operating base. The 41st Engineering Battalion, 16th Supply Battalion, 82nd Logistics Battalion, and 111th Medical Battalion are all being sent, with platoon-sized attachments from the 1st Administration Battalion and 182nd Special Services Battalion. In total, almost 4,100 personnel are being dispatched just to set up a base in Al-Khalifiya. As far as operations on the nation is concerned, the 3rd Sentinel Battalion has been activated and dispatched as well, and will be providing the back of the operations the URA plans to undertake in the nation. They'll be supported with drivers and vehicles from the 9th Army battalions staffing the base, as well as four V-24 Swift Fox multirole VTOLs and two AV-24 Foxhawk Attack VTOLs, giving the battalion an array of movement across the country. Drake didn't comment on the length of this deployment, but reassured the people this would not be another North Afrika war.

In the final moments of the speech, President Drake addressed Red Wind, the terrorist guerilla force of Al-Khalifiya, directly. "The organization known as Red Wind has been officially designated as terrorists by the Remnant National Intelligence Agency," Drake said. "So know this, members of Red Wind and those assisting them: Your card has been called. You will not get mercy from the URA. Your death will be quick, and it will be painless. Your families will never learn of your fate, but if they seek to help you, they will join you. If you aid or abet Red Wind in any way, your fate will be the same. If you try to run, we will track you down. If you try to hide, we will move mountains to find you. If you try to fight, you'll be defeated. If you try to surrender, you'll be cut down. Mercy does not exist for those who lack the ability to give it. Our soldiers will not hesitate, nor will they question anyone's loyalty. If our people find you, and your loyalty is in doubt, you will be marked a terrorist, and you will meet a very quick end. Your end is near. Good night."

One Does Not Simply Walk Into Mosul
Iraq Awakening Front fends off an attack by Jaysh Al - Islam with ease.
Français|日本語|한국어|English
Newsroom Tonight| Kirishinan Broadcasting Corporation




Bonsoir et Konbanwa, welcome back to Newsroom Tonight on the KBC Network, I'm Sugiyama Shinya in Imgeum. Our first story comes from Iraq where earlier today Jaysh Al-Islam launched an offensive on Mosul in an attempt to maintain influence and security in their held Anbar province. Mosul lies in control of the Nifon backed Iraqi Awakening Front, a group that seeks the liberation of the entire Greater Syria Area and the establishment of a free, independent Syrian Arab state governed by a policy of federalism to reflect and respect diversity in the region. Although Jaysh Al-Islam's goal was Mosul, they denied entry by the IAF and Nifonese on the plains of Nineveh. Our middle east correspondent, Bin Jong-Kwan is in Tel al-Riyah, Riysa with more. Jong-Kwan?

JongKwan: With the Anbar Province clearly being under the control of Jaysh Al-Islam, the terrorist organization made a move on Mosul in an attempt to show strength, expose IAF as well as Nifonese weakness, and capture Sunni-dominated areas to increase their potential recruitment and support pool. On the other hand, the confrontation was an opportunity for the Iraqi Awakening Front and their Nifonese allies to show off their capabilities. If attempting to strike fear into Jaysh Al-Islam and other opposition factions were the goals, then the IAF were successful.

Operation Baked Clay as it's being called lasted for approximately 12 hours and was a complete and utter rout for Jaysh Al-Islam. According to sources, due to either logistical issues or plain incompetence by Jaysh Al-Islam, a noticeable gap exploited by the Iraqi Awakening Front and Nifonese forces helped to entrap Jaysh Al-Islam. Furthermore, air support meant to aid the terrorist have reportedly failed to arrive. As a result, the terrorists were decimated in the face of the superior IAF/Nifonese forces. According to an Iraqi Awakening Front spokesperson, Jaysh Al-Islam suffered approximately 30,000 casualties as opposed to 80 local IAF soldiers killed or wounded and 2 Nifonese wounded. While many of Jaysh Al-Islam's casualties occurred towards the beginning of the battle, a good amount came as a result of the chaotic fleeing of the terrorist group which was intercepted. As one might expect the morale of JAI has been shattered and the possibility of another massive attack let alone recovery, is very unlikely.

On the other hand, the morale of the IAF and Nifonese are through the roof. From merely a defensive position, the side had managed to destroy the attacking force and the hashtag #OneDoesNotSimplyWalkIntoMosul is already trending. With this difference in success and in morale, it is likely that a JAI support base in the Sunni north is nothing else but a dream. With Jaysh Al-Islam on the ropes, the focus remains on the Iraqi Awakening Front and the Nifonese as to what will their next act be. This has been Bin Jong-Kwan from Tel al-Riyah, Riysa. Back to you Shinya-san

Shinya:Thank You. With Jaysh Al-Islam currently weaked it remains to be seen as to what is next. Will Jaysh Al-Islam continued to be eliminated or will attention be turned towards the south and the Arab Liberation Front. Now on to our next story...

Guadalupadorian Space Orbiter Providence Disintegrates During Reentry
Guadalupador News Today
-Divouga, Guadalupador- The Guadalupadorian Federal Aerospace Ministry has announced that it has lost all contact with Providence as it was performing a reentry procedure. The Providence orbiter was scheduled to end its one-month mission in low earth orbit earlier this evening, before contact was lost around 16:50 local time over Chibritinum Province in north-east Guadalupador. Eye-witnesses in Chibritinum Province claim to have seen the orbiter start to break up as it crossed over the eastern border into Guadalupador. According to a press release from GFAM, "There is without a reasonable doubt, that the Providence Shuttle has been destroyed. We are starting to direct recovery teams toward Chibritinum Province to start the search for pieces of the craft. At 1649 Hours, Nosamo Standard Daylight Time the Providence Orbiter entered its final stages of reentry, however all comms were lost two minutes later at a speed of Mach 24, and an altitude of 74 kilometers. At this time, we are still collecting all the data from the mission, and informing the families of each crewmember aboard Providence."

The crew of the Providence Shuttle included:
Flight Commander Raymus Artulis
Orbiter Pilot Marisa Gando
Payload Commander Samil Yalene
Payload Specialists Isemalda Monroy and Pyetro Semev
Mission Specialists Set Yansen, Jacque Ilyame, and Roberta Edu
It is very unlikely according to GFAM that the crew survived reentry.

GFAM is pledging that an investigation into the Providence disaster is in its opening stages, and that the Ministry is calling on its partners within the International Space Federation to help them in recovery efforts and in the proper investigation. At this time, GFAM has also cancelled any future shuttle flights for the time being, or at least until the investigation concludes. According to GFAM, astronauts aboard the Celestias Space Station will have to be resupplied and ferried to and from Earth on other ISF craft until the Orbiter program is restarted.

Kasuga: "Move or Be Moved"
Français|日本語|한국어|English
Newsroom Today | Kirishinan Broadcasting Corporation




Bonjour, Kon'nichiwa, et Annyeonghaseyo. Welcome to Newsroom Today on KBC World, I'm Woo Hae-Yun. Dirigeant Arata Kasuga signaled his intention to issue an Executive Edict in response to a perceived lack of action by some in Little Nosamo. The move marks Kasuga's first Executive Edict as Dirigeant of the Taisuist Republic and goes against his earlier stated desires to avoid using an edict for such purposes. In this Executive Edict, the main points listed are as follows. First, all Dorians who are overdue to move during the latest deadline will have a 3-month extension to cooperate in moving. Should this be done, all benefits of selecting location and living near friends will still be available. Second, After the 3-month grace period, those refusing to leave will be moved with no preference to location. Third, An appeal extension will be made available out of goodwill but with reduced perks and finally, those who file for an extension and make no effort to move, will be deported to their nation of origin at the end of the extension period. This is the most controversial part of the Edict as for many Dorians that would mean getting sent back to New Yama. For more, we turn to our KBC correspondent Kohei Munakata who has the full report.

Kohei:With the second relocation deadline for the first wave of Dorian asylum seekers now passed, it seems that the frustration of the Kasuga Administration and the pressures of various ethnic groups have reached new heights. While many Dorians have relocated their homes outside of Little Nosamo or have received an official exemption, there are still a substantial amount of Dorians who refuse to not only relocate but refuse to learn any of the official languages. After months of what critiques called passive inaction, the Dirigreant while finishing up a visit to Mellburg was confronted by the press following the missed deadline. We do not have footage but the Saeki Press reports that Kasuga looked visibly disappointed and stated that he did not want it to come down to this but has no choice but to issue an Executive Edict. He went on to say quote

"We have a system here that is not perfect but works, and has been done for many generations. The issue here has normally been how can we make it more effective and organic, not whether people will actively refuse to integrate. This has nothing to do with losing one's culture but about additional tools to fit in the home society. You can even say an additional culture. Point is this will not stand and those who refuse to move will be the end of this will move or be moved."

In the Kasuga Administration bid for transparency when not related to national security. The Federal Palace issued a statement saying that the Saeki Press piece is accurate and not falsified. Since that time some of the contents of that Edict have made it's way to the public before Kasuga-seonbae could even return to Heiwa, it is reported that he did depart Beaufort but the precise location and ETA is confidential as expected. One thing for sure is that this will be a trying time between Kasuga-seonbae and the Dorian population but also other refugee/asylum populations such as Filipinos, many of which have been critical of the Dorian asylum population. Kohei Munakata, KBC World, Heiwa.

Woo Hae-Yun: Thank You for that report. Despite Kasuga not being in Heiwa during his announcement, many people sought answers for this latest development. Federal Palace Press Secretary Omotayo Taiwo fielded some of this questions earlier. Let's take a look.


Mikan Akemi: "Akemi Mikan, The Saeki Press, With the amount of time that passed from the relocation deadline to an edict was this planned or did it happen on the spot? What was the motivation behind it? "

Omotayo Taiwo:" Kasuga-Seonbae has met with his cabinet on few occasions after the first deadline past about what to do should there be people who ignore the second deadline. There are those even then that wanted to take more aggressive action, Kasuga being the man that he is, gave more time as he has always stated that he wanted to avoid Edicts during his term. So this was planned and on the shelf for the occasion that the latest deadline was not met. As for the motivation, Kasuga just wants to ensure that there is no self-segregation. We believe this policy affects how children grow up and help make a nation very diverse...at least compared to other Asian nations remain functional."

Casel Risalge: "This is Guadalupador News Today, and reporter Casel Risalge, We've talked to a lot of ethnic Guadalupadorian business owners and restauranteurs currently living in Little Nosamo, and they're concerned that they'll be kicked out of their homes and business that they just built over the course of the year here. Will Kasuga's Edict affect them?"

Omotayo Taiwo:" No, Kasuga's Edict will not affect them. Restaurants and businesses were and remain immune to this Edict same goes for the owners. As for the employees of these restaurants and businesses they have special priority but are not completely exempt. They can file an E-1 form on the government's relocation page, at any real estate firm or website. With this, they will have priority to live in a neighboring neighborhood or at the unlikely worst-case scenario. Be located an easy commute away from their business. As expected with this sort of thing, the earlier you file the better off your exact choice is available.

Hassan Syomeo: "Hassan Syomeo, Ever Vigilant, (Yanamaist Party of Guadalupador's News Publication) So what's really behind this Executive Edict? Are you finally caving into the Sackies within your Liberty Party that want to see asylum seekers meet their deaths at the hand of the Martinezist Puppet New Yama?"

Omotayo Taiwo: "The purpose of this edict is to ensure that Dorian Asylum seekers that are planning on living here long term as citizens follow regulation like immigrants and refugees. This affects a minority in the Dorian community as many Dorians have complied with moving already. Little Nosamo is not going anywhere, it is good to have a center of culture where food, music, festivals can be followed. However, we can't have people stubbornly live there separate from the main country and not even able to communicate in any of the two and soon to be three official languages. As for the Deportation part, Kasuga-seonbae really does not want to do that and I believe it shows in the very specific violation it takes to be deported to New Yama. It's a deterrent. It's a provision for those who make no effort to move, get evicted and assigned a place to live, as we would not kick an asylum seeker into the streets. Then while receiving a notice of Eviction file an E-3 form asking for clemency and an extension to voluntarily move and then once again make no effort to move. Furthermore, for those who ignored the first two deadlines, they have three months till there a third and final deadline. This means the only way deportation to New Yama happens is ignoring the next three months, seeking an extension and then ignoring the next two months with no effort. Regular deportations for criminal activity still results in being sent to the Federal Union. "


Woo Hae-Yun: Over in Guadalupador, the preliminary reporting seems to be negative, some would believe that Kasuga and the Taisuist Republic do not care about their family members and friends and while understand the idea of assimilating into Kirishinan culture, are appalled at the notion that Kirishima would send refugees back to New Yama.

Dorians in Kirishima are more split. Most Dorians have made efforts at assimilation, but still, want a cultural community within a foreign land considering the content of the Edict, it is safe to say those concerns should dissipate in the coming days. The real issue here will be the few Dorians that refuse to assimilate. There are concerns that they will see their culture under further attack. In local social media, some have called Kasuga a liar and feel that he was very disingenuous about his promise to help asylum seekers. This has already led to some counter blowback from other immigrant groups. It remains to be seen how this story will play out in the coming days, but only time will tell and we will look towards the signing of the Edict and the third deadline to see what happens next....*paper shuffle* In our next story.....

Guadalupadorian Ultra-nationalism on the rise.
Guadalupador News Today
-Divouga, Guadalupador- According to a new set of research on public opinions at the University of Divouga's School of Public Policy, ultra-nationalism is on the rise among both the Dorian diaspora and within Guadalupador itself. The study relates recent events as "producing a potent breeding ground of ultra-nationalist tendencies and ideas." According to the publisher of the study Professor Arev Veldthi, "Lots of people are angry and demand retribution against the people that uprooted them, and are willing to place the blame on entire groups of people related to the perpetrators of such actions and events. Groups in the diaspora communities are getting together and demanding their culture and language be respected especially within Kirishima, where one of the largest Dorian diaspora communities exists. I mean, there's thousands of former Guadalupadorian Federal Military personnel out there in the world with these sort of ideas that the Federal Union failed them so they start up private military outfits and are wanting some sort of retribution in one way or another. It's a catharsis to them." commenting on the sudden rise of Guadalupadorian-run private military contractors and paramilitary groups in the wake of the Division.

Professor Veldthi also commented on the ultra-nationaist tendencies within Guadalupador. "...With that, you're seeing new groups start to become very popular, because they tell downtrodden Dorians what they want to hear, and how they're gonna 'beat the bad guys' The Yanamaist Party is seeming to embrace this tide of social and cultural dissent against the sort of diplomatic means that the Marcos government is currently embracing. The Yanamaist Party, at this point in time, is the voice for Dorian Ultra-nationalism in the Federal Union."
