1969 Real-World RP


The year is 1969, the height of the Cold war and the space-race. Neil Armstrong has landed on the moon and the Soviet's are still pressing for a arms buildup in their country. Intelligence agencies are operating at maximum capacity in many Middle-Eastern and foreign countries to halt the spread of Communism. These are the defining moments of the Cold War.With Richard Nixon in power and the Watergate scandal to come, along with internal struggles with the Berlin wall.

Situation Room, White House, Washington D.C, United States of America
January, 1st,1969
Image

Lyndon B. Johnson awoke from his sleep and was ready to take on the daily affairs of the country. He knew his presidency was coming to a end within the coming days and he would be replaced with Richard Nixon. He enjoyed his time in office, but was prepared to move on with life. He had meetings with Nixon, advising him of the current political situation of the world and on the domestic front of the United States. The war in Vietnam grew to a stalemate. He had arranged a meeting in the situation room, along with his National Security Advisors. He entered the room where everyone stood for the President in respect. Lyndon sits them back down and heads to his seat.

"What is the situation in Vietnam?"

Was his first words and Radford spoke.

"The Vietcong are carrying out attacks on our bases and South Vietnamese troops. These are guerilla attacks so we are winning the battles as we have not lost a engagement. The thing we are losing though is support for the war and casualties are massing up. On the uphand, we are killing more of them."

Lyndon sighed, looking towards the room and then allows his generals to speak.

"We are holding position at the Border as we have not yet attempted to storm the North full force. We have sent scouting parties in, but the Vietcong are really stepping up. For now, I guess you could say we're at a stalement for the war. I recommend pushing the assault and dwindle their numbers to decrease Vietcong raids."

Lyndon nodded his head, turning up to his General and hovers a pen by his mouth.

"We shall hold position by the border, along with South Vietnamese troops. As I will only be in office for 20 more days, I don't want to over-complicate things. This will be the strategy for the rest of my presidency. I do however, wish you to provide this same option to Nixon when possible."

The Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs nodded

"As you wish sir."

Lyndon now looked at his National Security Advisors, motioning them to speak.

"Mr President, on the home-front as the general mentioned popular support for the war is declining. Most of the nation is wanting us to withdraw from Vietnam as it is costing to much American life. I recommend if you even want to continue the war, we try and raise some more popular support or at least try and bring more reasons to stay."

Lyndon Johnson dropped his pen on the desk, leaning forward towards the Security Advisors.

"We shall need to hold off on that as well, but we shall not ignore our people. I will give a speech on the 15th to address the nation about America's reason for the war and why it is vital to fight it. The rest shall be left to Nixon. Thank you Gentlemen, I shall need to head back to the Oval Office to address more pressing matters. Dismissed"

Everyone stood up as the president rose to leave, then they all left the room as well heading back to their stations. Lyndon sat at the Oval Office, looking out the windows into the Rose Garden, taking hold of the peace he has for the last 20 days.

Beijing, China

China was at the height of the Cultural Revolution. Many political opponents were being purged by Mao Zedong's regime. Starvation among the Chinese population was high as the Cultural Revolution continues on with the rapidly growing Chinese population.

While China was communist, tensions were high with the USSR, China's neighbor to the north. Ever since the regime of Nikita Khrushchev came to power, China distanced relations from the USSR and relations between China and the USSR ended in 1962. Attempts at improving relations between the two communist countries failed and tensions continued to rise. As a matter in fact, tensions were so high that both countries deployed troops to the Sino-Soviet border, in preparation for a possible full scale war with the USSR.

Socialist Republic of Romania


USSR was not our friend anymore. They attacked us when we condemned their invasion of Czechoslovakia. Luckily, we had Henri Coandă. He repaired some ancient alien technology from the Carphatians, and with some kind of hi-power laser, stopped the invasion started by Hungary and the Soviet Union by melting their tanks. However, this technology is something that everyone wants! Soon they will know about it, and Romania will be weak in case of invasion! The New World Order wants this technology.

(By 1974 this alien technology will be known to everyone, but nobody will use it, still we will not have this edge anymore, and will be prone to invasion)

So we must prepare. From an invasion from all sides, except friendly Yugoslavia.
But we had this huge national debt we have not paid yet...
Our army has Russian T-55s. We need to produce our own version in order to survive any possible invasion.
A delegation of engineers is being sent to friendly China, to research everything they can about light, heavy, and medium tanks. Tank destroyers, rocket launchers and artillery are included too. This is the first thing we must do.
The second thing is developing our agriculture. An advanced irigation system will do good money if we export tasty fruits and vegetables. Ceaușescu, descendant of the Basarab dynasty, knew all these and started preparing the country.
Also, the new Romanian car model, Dacia 1300 will be ready for production by August.

For a nation that was the dominant South American power, the state of Brazil was exceptionally poor, as President Artur da Costa e Silva knew well. Instead of being a contenter with the greater powers, Brazil was stuck being the king of the dung-heap of South America.

But times were changing. With the end of the Second World War, Brazil was growing, and growing fast. The benefits of being on the winning side was clear when the ranks of American built aircraft and ships that Brazil had bought from the Americans. With the world forming into the two powerblocks, east and west, the right course to steer Brazil was towards the American side. The same, however, could not be said for Brazil's Latin American neighbours.

With the military coup of 1964 establishing the control of the Army over the country, firm anti-communist sentiments and growing nationalism had became the offical lines for Brazilian government. Goulart's socialist tendancies had driven the coup, and there was little chance of the military allowing them to return. Despite this, there was still discontent that the military remained in power, that the return to democracy and freedom of speech and of the press were still absent. Popular dissent against the regime was mounting, but despite this, the reforms that Silva had begun were begining to bear fruit, with the growth of the Brazilian economy expanding year on year.

Much depended on how Silva conducted himself on the international stage. If he was unable to secure Brazil's economic situation with the world, or fail to keep the army or the popular support of the country, he would quickly find himself going the same way as President Goulart had went, or any number of Latin American premiers that had failed what was expected of the.


Code: Select all
To: President Johnson of the United States of America,

The bonds between Brazil and America have been close, and recent events have brought us closer together. With the development of Brazil as the premier Latin American power, the interests of both America and Brazil can be served together. Both nations would benefit from closer economic ties, and in the interests of securing Latin American security, I would like to propose that Brazil should buy a decommissoned American aircraft carrier, preferably of the Essex class for use in defense.

Furthermore, I would propose that our nations sign a treaty to cement our relationship. The main points of this treaty would be that:
- South America is seen as firmly in the sphere of Brazil (South America being defined as all of the Americas south of the Panama Canal). Any American involvement in this sphere would require the consultation and approval of the Brazilian government.
- Brazil remains commitied to fighting communist dictatorships in South America.
- American advisors will train the Army, Navy and Air Force of Brazil.
- A economic agreement between our nations is signed promoting free flow of investment, capital and trade.

Yours, hopefully in prosperity, President Artur da Costa e Silva


Code: Select all
To: The governments of Britain, West Germany, and France

The possibilities of trade between Brazil and the rest of the world have not yet been realized. The prosperity that could be gained from trade between our countries would be of untold benefit to all involved, and we would like to propose closer economic ties between Brazil and your country, and for your companies and corporations to invest in Brazilian industry, so that trade may flow between our nations.

President Artur da Costa e Silva


Code: Select all
To: The government of Britain

The Brazilian government is interested in supporting the development of the aircraft industry inside Brazil. We would seek British help in developing it, mainly in the transfer of skilled specialists from Rolls-Royce to Brazil. Furthermore, the design of jet engines is of interest to the Brazilian government, and a transfer of knowledge would be most welcome. In return for this, we would offer Britain more advantagous trade terms that than of it's international counterparts, as well as a suitable infusion of hard currency.

President Artur da Costa e Silva


Code: Select all
To the government of Chile,

In the interests of South American unity, Brazil would like to make a proposal to our fellow Latin American nations. In light of the spirit of unity and fellowship being fostered in Europe following the conclusion of the war, I would like to lead the way for the same to happen in the Americas. As a result, I would like to propose the Latin American equivilant of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The terms of the agreement would be as follows:

- All member nations are required to come to the defense of any other member nation in the event of an attack by a third party, confined to the geographical limits of South America.
- Multi-national military and staff exercises are conducted on a bi-annal basis.
- Standardization of military weaponary to arms that can be produced in Latin America.
- Co-operation on matters of inteligence and sharing of information.

This is only the early stages of my plans for this organization, so further suggestions are more than welcome.


Yours, hopefully in prosperity, President Artur da Costa e Silva

The Year was 1969. Two years after the 6-day war in which Israel managed to protect itself in its own against three regional powers. Not only that, but during the conflict Israel was able to conquer the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula. Needless to say Israel's relations with its neighboring countries was terrible. Almost all the Middle East wanted Israel Destroyed. The three main nations that wanted this were Syria, Egypt and Jordan.

On the world stage Israel was a fledgling power. It was Allied with Democratic America, Democratic Turkey and Democratic Britain. Obviously because of this the Communist East Europe was not friendly towards Israel. This considerably weakened Israel add Eastern Europe was closer than Israel's Western allies. Israel is one of the members of the United Nations in which it is a strong member.

Back at home the President of Israel was coming under threat of attack from the New terrorist organisation known as the PLO. Their job is to Eradicate and Destroy the Jewish presences in the Palestinian Land.


The Israeli President say alone in his office. Before him was a letter which he knew could change the way the Communist and Democratic countries were in the Middle east.
To: The Russian High Command
From: Israel

Greetings Comrade.

As you know we are allies with many Western Democratic Countries. However we are not Interested in this war of words between Democratic and Communist Nations. We are more worried about the region of the Middle East. In order to secure our interests we ask that you Ally with us.

Bonn, Federal Republic of Germany


The newly enshrined Chancellor Willy Brandt was certainly pleased with the country he had inherited from the outgoing occupant of his position. Germany was one of the most powerful and prosperous nations in Europe, despite being reduced to ashes only two decades earlier. However, there was still much to be done, particularly with regards to the Republic's eastern neighbors. The GDR and most of eastern Europe was still unrecognized by the west German government and vice-versa, although it was too early for recognition Brandt hoped to begin the process soon. In addition to European matters, the rising nation of Brazil was expressing desire to deepen ties with the FRG economically. The rapidly modernizing nation would provide the perfect opportunity for German investors and manufacturing companies.

Domestically changes had to be made as well. Brandt had entered the chancellorship as the post-war generation finally became a powerful political force. The majority of which were left-wing and supported Brandt as a reformer and like minded leader. Indeed he shared their passion for reform and increased support of the government for the people. To this end the government was preparing to put much more federal funding into a welfare, education, healthcare, and numerous other programs which were long overdue for an overhaul. Tonight Brandt would address the nation and numerous international observers about his far reaching policies. But before that, it was time to contact Brazil.

Code: Select all
To: The Government of the Government of Brazil

We in the Federal Republic of Germany were glad to receive your message and offer of deepened economic ties. Our government is always looking for reciprocal economic relationships with other nations. We hope to being negotiations for the easing of trade and investment between our two nations.

Respectfully,

Chancellor Willy Brandt

Rhodesian Mission, Lisboa, Portugal

"So, Mr. Nogueira, how can I help you?" the Rhodesian representative in Portugal was well acquainted with the Portuguese foreign minister, together they had defied the United Nations many times with secret arms deals, ignored trade sanctions, offering each other military assistance and refusing to halt diplomatic relations or abandon the colonies, needless to say, it was a healthy relationship, but often met with outside protests.

"I'm sure you remember the Zoio brothers from a few years back, the ones who quite substantially improved the fighting capacity of both of our armies" José, Luiz and Jean Zoio had defied NATO's embargo against arming the Portuguese forces in Africa, then did the exact same thing for the Rhodesian government and less extensively for the South Africans.

"Yes, the arms dealers"

"Well, President Tomás had granted me permission to improve this deal, in addition to the arms and ammunition you are already receiving, we would like to offer a number of older Dornier Do 27 aircraft and access to our oil fields in Moçambique free of any tariffs for four years along the transfer of a handful of oil tankers to your government, the only thing we ask is for mining rights within your territory, staying in established mining areas of course"

"I shall have to contact my government, thank you for the offer Mr. Nogueira, I'm sure they will appreciate it"

"Ferreira, Neto and Torres, clear out those bushes" Tenente (Lieutenant) Odalis ordered, they had chased a group of FRELIMO terrorists all the way from Vila Pery, and with these sneaky bastards you had to get them while you could, let them slip away once and they would be back with more men and bigger guns, "Sierra and Cabral, you cover them and the rest of us will keep our eyes open"

The mentioned men set about searching the bushes while the rest of the small force kept their eyes on the surroundings, almost immediately met with a loud mechanic bark, followed by a distinctly Portuguese shout, Neto had been hit in the chest by enemy fire and was now lying limp in the undergrowth, instinctively the rest of the force dropped to the ground or crouched in the dense shrubbery and Odalis found himself next to Cão.

"I'll cover you senhor" the young settler from Nova Freixo by way of Abrantes slowly got on to his knees and peered out, where there had before been empty bushes there were now armed men searching for the Portuguese troops, such was war in the bush, you never could know just what would happen, Cão waited for Odalis to start crawling forwards before firing his FMP m/963, quickly downing an insurgent with a shot to the throat.

By the time the FRELIMO rebels had figured out where the fire was coming from Odalis had dragged Neto into the bushes and was applying first aid, Cão dropped a few other terrorists and the rest of the platoon joined in from their hiding spots, making short work of the militants and then searching the bodies.

"Luis, you help me get Neto to the nearest village, the rest of you, gather up their equipment and we'll see you back at the base"

"Have you found him, Agente Bolha?"

The agreement of the West Germans to establish economic ties was a minor coup for Silva. Doing his best to combat inflation and re-organize the Brazilian government from the chaotic days of his predecessors, any sort of improvement to international trade was a bonus. Better still that it was with a industrialized nation in Europe, one with whom trade relations could bring great things.

The small boost in prestige that this brought Silva enabled him to convince the leading generals to agree to his proposal for military reforms. Brazil was dependant on drafting large numbers of men for national service year on year to supliment the standing army of volunteers. Silva's proposal was drastic, and in the eyes of some, quite radical.

Men would still be drafted, be given basic military training and serve two years service. However, instead of serving as regular members of the military, they would be deployed in civic works. This linked in with a wider infrastructure plan that Silva and his economic specialists had developed to improve road and rail links inside Brazil, as well as open up more farmland to cultivation. Once drafted, the draftee's would split their time between training and working on projects such as clearing jungle for farmland, bridge building and building roads and between learning tatics and weapon maintience and learning skills such as construction, carpentary and metalworking.

The other arm of Silva's proposal would be to establish the regular Brazilian Army as a professional all-volunteer standing army, to be suplimented by draftee's in a national emergency. With the hope that American instructors would drill the Brazilians to the proper standard, as well as vague promises from Silva of military modernization, the majority of the army were welcomed to the idea, with only the inherint reluctance of the officer coprs to grasp the deal with both hands.

With this in mind, Silva had the Foriegn Ministry write a further communication to the West German government, in the hope that Silva could milk the co-operation of the FDR for even more political power amongst the Brazilian officer corps.

With the goal of further developing the relationship between our nations, my government would like to make an additional invitation to enter in to a co-operative weapons development program with the Republic of Brazil. Both our nations are faced with threats that could present themselves at any time, and only through the spirit of mutual co-operation can we defeat these.

Yours, hopefully in prosperity, President Artur da Costa e Silva

Somewhere near Kragujevac,People's Republic of Serbia,Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia

Two men were driving bicycles down the road. It was a peacefull night.
"Christ, we are late, lets hurry."
The two bicyciclists drove their bikes faster untill they came to the end of the road. They left their bicyicles leaning up against a tree, and went into the woods, untill they were stoped by the hearing of a voice?
"Halt! Who goes there?"

"Do you have any cigars?" asked one of the two men that came by bicycles.

"Yes, but i have no matches"

"Ah, well i have a spark."

A man stepped out of the bushes that were hiding him, he was holding a AK-47.

"You're late gentleman, you better hurry up."

"Yeah, how's your brother Stanojlo?"

"He still has a fever, the doctors got the bullet out of his leg yesterday, but it seems that the wound is infected"

"Well, we should be going.I hope your brother gets better Stanojlo.See you around."

The two men continued throught the forest untill they sow a wooden shack. It looked empty but you could hear some noise coming from it. They entered it and now they could recognise the voices of some people. The shack was dark, and there wasnt actually a floor.Dirt was everywhere.

"Where is that damned trapdoor, and where the hell is Vukoje?"

"Sorry gentlemen, i had to take a piss." Another man entered the shack and went to the other two.

"Come here." He then took a showel that was laying on the ground.

"Jesus, its so dark i couldnt even see it."

The man started digging and not very long after the shovel started scraping something.

"There is it. Thanks Vukoje."

The two men opened the trapdor and went down the ladder that were leading to a room that had stone walls. Vukoje closed the trapdor as soon as both of them entered.

"Im sorry we are late, gentlemen. We had some complications."

"Ah, youre finally here Ivan and Jovan."

Ivan and Jovan entered a large room that had guards at the entrance with AK-47's. In the middle of the room there was a large table that had twelve men sitting at it. An the table was full of some papers with writings on them. Behing the man that was sitting at the head was a big red flag and next of it were coat of arms made of bronze.

"Have a seat please. We were discussing should ,and how should we act against the communist government that has been put up against us. Our army is up nort and also in small pockets in Bosnia. General Draža is still hiding in Bosnia and we were able to make contact with him. The King and his government are still in Britain and are now shown as the non-regular government of this country. We have set goals for the refounding of our organisation, the Serbian Nationalist Organisation.That is the pollitical wint. The millitary wing that will be controlled by the general Dragoljub "Draža" Mihailović will be called the Serbian Insurgent Army since he is relieved of his "Yugoslav duties".He accepted our offer. Our gouls will be those that will benefit the Serbian people, to create a Serbian monarchy under the House of Karađorđević, that will unite all of the Serbian lands and those are Serbia,Montenegro,Macedonia,Bosnia,Slavonia,Lika,Kordun,Banija, and Gorski Kotar! The flag and the coat of arms behind me are the flag of Karađorđe's rebels, that waged a war against a foreing occupying force, and the coat of arms is the coat of arms of Kragujevac. You the men sitting here in this room and General Dragoljub "Draža" Mihailović will be in the cabinet of the new goverment we will establish.The cabinet will be formed as we have preivously agreed with me as the Prime Minister. Before we finish this meeting, i would like to ask you to make an oath here, before the flag,and the coat of arms.Before our lord.
I promise and swear to God Almighty his holy Gospel, and life giving cross: To be faithfull and invariably devoted to the recreation Serbian state. God help us."

Everyone in the room repeated after him and cross themselves. Then the man that was at the head of the table took an icon out of his leather suitcase that was on the table. It was the icon of Virgin Marie with her son in her hands. Everyone in the room came up to the icon and kissed it.

Oval Office, White House, Washington D.C, United States of America
January, 1st,1969

Johnson made his way past his secretary in the outer room of the Oval Office. He opened his door and shut it softly, walking towards his desk and sat down in his chair. He was a bit jerky about what he had said in the Oval Office for waiting to press the assault into the North, but he believed that would be a decision for Nixon to make. The previously allied controlled parts of Europe were booming from the Marshall Plan imposed after World War II, and were fully supportive of allied efforts against the Communist which made him happy, but Nuclear Warfare was not a toy. As he sat there thinking to himself as his secretary walked in.

"Sir, we have received a message from Brazil that requires your attention."

The Assistant placed the message on the desk, as Johnson looked down at it.

Code: Select all

Johnson nodded at the letter as he read, and when he was done he looked up at his assistant Jenny.

"Jenny, I think we need to prepare a flight to Brazil. The Brazilians have been with America since World War II, and they have been a dedicated ally. I believe I should grant them this audience in person to show our respect. I want to be ready to head to Andrew's Air Force Base as soon as possible. Do you know when that shall be?"

Jenny smiled to the president and responded.

"We can be ready to leave in a three hour period. I shall notify the Secret Service,pilots, and Andrew's of the trip."

Johnson looked back down at the Paper, then back up to Jenny.

"Have Radford come with us on this trip. And tell him to bring a General of each branch of the United States Military he is willing to send to a foreign country for a unknown duration of time."

"As you wish sir, I shall go make the preparations now and I will tell you when we are ready to go"

Jenny left the room to make the calls she needed to make for the trip. Allowing the president to send a message back to Brazil.

Peace and Prosperity be upon you, Dear Ally,

The United States of America is humble to and grateful to call you a ally. For years you have been on the Democratic side of progress and no matter how grim the situation seems to get, you stick to the cause and for that we praise you. We most happy at your efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in the South American continent and we wish to help you with your cause as we can.

Being President of a country is a demanding job, and requires a level-headed figure such as yourself to see your people through tough times. America knows this best as we have been under multiple presidents including myself in these matters, and to help a ally in need with tough problems is something we must not overlook. To show our gratitude and appreciation of your efforts through the years, I have decided to pay Brazil a state-visit as you deserve a formal audience with me on your home soil. Air Force One, our plane shall be departing in about 4 hours. Please make the necessary preparations for a three day stay in your country.

We hope this will bring us closer together, as well as strengthen our understanding of your culture as you have taken a liking to ours. On behalf of the United States of America, you have our thanks.

Signed,

Lyndon B. Johnson

Egypt

Nasser sat alone in his office.He was searching through his memories of his presidency. From his successes in the revolution and the Suez crisis to the loss of land in the six day war.Egypt had come a long way since the days of King Farouk.
Nasser himself had come a long way.Considered as the leading figure in the Arab world and loved by millions as the leader of the 'Arab cause'.However unbeknown to Egyptians and most of the world Nasser's health was becoming increasingly volatile.His chain smoking and long working days were not helping the matter.

However Egypt had more important matters to attend to.The Israelis had surprised the Egyptians two years previous during the six day war.Destroying Egypt's Air Force before it had even got off the ground and taking the Sinai in one swift blow.
2 years had gone by and lessons have been learned.But the Sinai still lies in Israel's hands.The only nation that could possibly help Egypt was the USSR.

В советской 41.33.823 Уголовного кодекса, является незаконным мешкать и / или причинения вреда этим военным объектом. Любое несанкционированное присутствие здесь в пределах или рядом с базой является неприемлемым, и смертоносная сила, уполномоченных на любого, которые не поддаются Вот это предупреждение.


At the unknown base, "Soviet Military Installation 324", tensions between the USSR and China are so high, Marshal Andreiyan Kenorvin is ordered by the premier to arm its nuclear missiles in the case of an all-out total conflict. S.M.I. 324 -one of the 820 military installations spread across the soviet union- is dug deep into a mountain and serves as a large outpost that houses 20,000 soldiers, 100 tanks, 40 Airplanes, 50 Helicopters, 10 ICBM's, and 3 Nuclear missiles. Currently, the base is in a frenzy, moving a lot of things to a nuclear bunker capable of surviving 10 hydrogen bomb blasts.

"Come on! Come on! Move your asses! Marshal Andreiyan Kenorvin shouts at a few soldiers moving supplies.

"Comrade Kenorvin." Sergeant Ivan Grigorevich asks Andreiyan.

"What is it, comrade Yalvev?"

"We have organized two SCUDS to carry two of our nuclear missiles to a disclosed location not so far away from here."

"Nonsense, Sergeant! I said that ALL missiles are to be here."

"You must know, we cannot be flanked. If we keep everything in one spot here, Comrade Marshal, then we'll be damned by the Premier for our poor choices."

"Forget him, god dammit! Just do what I say, alright?"

"Yes, Comrade Andreiyan."

The Kremlin


In the Kremlin, Premier Alexei Kosygin has ordered his advisor's to fund and promote foreign Communist Parties. The Premier has also ordered the Soviet Space Program to do another N1 rocket test, this time, with the sufficient funds of 5 billion US dollars. He looks out the window, watching every bit of snow fall onto Moscow. Alexei himself was afraid that the Soviet Motherland will be on its knees within a few decades if the USSR does not do anything. He continues to think and think of what to do next, while things in Baikonur are very hasty. Meanwhile, the Premier sends a Diplomatic letter to Brazil.

Dear fellow friend,

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics would like to express our interests in your country, and to add to that, we, the Soviet Union, propose a Free Trade Agreement between our two nations, for it will benefit for both of our economies. Now, the United States of America is trying to pull you into a little trap, and we would want to help you get out of the danger of this country. We will also be willing to supply your military with our fine weapons, and that we also want to --------CENSORED------- for the good of the people.

Signed,
Premier Alexei Kosygin


Baikonur Cosmodrome

The N1 is going under full production once more. After a massive and humiliating failure with the rocket, Valentin Glushko, the Chief Designer of the Soviet Space Program, has re-fitted the N1 with better, safer, and more powerful engines, though, the N1 Lunar rocket has 24 engines for the first stage. After a successful engine test with this, the incompetent Nikolai Kutznetsov and Vasily Mishin were both thrown out of the space program, leaving Glushko to continue Sergei Korolev -the Russian Space pioneer-'s legacy. So far, the Soyuz craft is being constructed, as well as the LK, and astronauts are being trained for this mission.

The first step to a Lunar program would be a Lunar orbital flight, then a manned landing on the moon.

Despite the lack of notice for the state visit from the American President, the huge prestige bonus that would come from having such a vital figure visit Brazil at a critical time for Silva's government was too good to miss. The 1st Guards Cavalry Regiment, the Presidential Guard Battalion and the Cayenne Battery were all notified to be prepared for their role as honor guard in two hours, and hurried notifications were dispatched to the Brasília city police to be on full alert for the American's arrival.

Tension in Brazil was still present; there were those unhappy with the government, there were many of them, and they would jump at the chance to protest in the hope of international attention. The upside of the abrupt visit was that any potential protestors would have even less time to organize than the Brazilian government.

A further upside, thought Silva, was that if the American President was mistreated by thrown rotten fruit that characterized political protets in Brazil or unimpressed by what he seen, he was going to be replaced shortly by the new President-Elect Nixon, anyways.

Brasília had only been the capital of the country for nine years, yet had managed to grow beyond all expectations. The city was the visualization of the word modern - the aparatus of the goverment was centralized in the city, housed in buildings designed by the most well-known architects of the day. With the shopping centers, gardens and plaza's, the city was the perfect place to conduct a state visit.

It took four hours of hurried telephone calls, meetings, dispatches and orders before prepartions were at a stage that could be called finalized, though much was left to be done. Only the first day of Johnson's stay was planned, with the remaining needing to be finalized once the President had arrived. The broad strokes had been established however. The American President would see tour Brasília for the majority of the first day, with the remainder spent on talks with Silva. If these were not concluded by the end of the first day, the second day would be spent on further talks before the Americans would be wisked off on the the third day to Rio de Janerio to visit that city before flying home.

With preparations complete, Silva could turn his hand to the diplomacy that overseeing hotel reservations and security deployments had distracted him from.

It would be my greatest pleasure to welcome you to Brazil and discuss matters with you in person. I would hope also to show you what small parts of Brazil you will be able to see in such a short visit, as well as to show you what might be if our nations co-operate to the fullest extent possible.

Signed, President Artur da Costa e Silva

To: Premier Alexei Kosygin of the USSR

While I am reluctant to take such steps pre-maturely, my government will be willing to consisder some form of trade treaty. Any offer exceeing that, such as offers of weapons, or weapons development programs or suchlike will be considered following the conclusion of a state visit from the American President. Any offers made by the Soviet government will be weight against those made by the American government, and the offer that is most benefical and in-line with Brazil's aims will be accepted.

Yours, hopefully in prosperity, President Artur da Costa e Silva

Lyndon B. Johnson's Limo door had been open by as member of the Secret Service, Johnson stepping out to camera's flashing and people shouting for the President. Lyndon gave the traditional waves and climbed up the stairs to the plane, excited about it being possible his last foreign visit. As the president entered the plane, he was greeted by the Co-Pilot, which Johnson acknowledge with great trust and enthusiasm. He then was notified that his General's have arrived and are in the meeting room. Johnson smiles, notifying the Co-pilot when we finish loading he would like to depart soon. The door to his meeting room was opened by Two U.S marines in ceremonial uniform, as the Table stood then sat back down.

Radford was of one in the crowd, with United States Air force General Leon W. Johnson, Army General Ferdinand J. Chesarek, and Admiral Jackson D. Arnold. Who were going to be staying in Brazil for the duration of the deal that is hoped to be made. Radford spoke first.

"Mr President, these are the men who shall train the Military of Brazil. They have been briefed on the task and are ready to take the responsibility of this matter."

Johnson scanned the room and licked his dry lips. Bopping his head back and forth.

"Good job Radford, you really pulled through. Let us hope the Brazilians will make this deal they want. We shall be taking off soon, I guess you could all stay in here as if I needed you I know where you are."

Radford shook his head at the president in a positive way.

"Yes, sir. We will not let you down."

Johnson turned around and walked outta the room, heading to the presidential office on board and after 10 more minutes of waiting, the plane was taxiing to the runway for takeoff, and off the plane was to Brazil. Estimated Flight Time:14 hours, 12 minutes.

14 Hours, 20 minutes have gone by on the plane and it has landed on the Runway of Galeão International Airport. The Marines were standing at the bottom of the steps saluting the President as he walked down. Admiring the sight of the Brazilians and Brazilian Officials who were there for his visit.

"Senhor, I do not think we can fight them off again, not if they come at us with such great numbers" a worried young Alferes (Ensign) from a local white militia group said as he looked back at the road behind them littered with the dead and by destroyed equipment, they had been ordered to retreat from their camps in the western region, a lightly populated rural area and enemy stronghold, and during the march rebels seemed to come out of the woodwork to attempt ambushes.

"Do not worry Héctor, we will regroup in the west and be back here with reinforcements within two months" Primeiro-cabo (First Corporal) Ventura ducked under an errant branch and then kept walking casually, a cigarette in one hand and an assault rifle on his back.

"Cut the chatter boys, we don't want to make any more noise than is needed" Capitão Terrazas hissed from in front of their group, overall there were several hundred soldiers leaving this camp, and thousands more across the region, a grand target for any group of African nationalists, and in the last few hours two dozen men had already fallen to enemy fire.

"Yes, senhor"

Somewhere Along The Okavango River, Angola-Namibia Border

Two companies of Portuguese regulars and one of OPVDC militiamen from Loanda waited on one bank of the Okavango river, and on the other were several platoons of South African infantry, they were to join forces and raid an enemy stronghold deep in the bush, but the first thing that they needed to do was to actually join up on the South African side of the river.

After several hours of work the Portuguese troops had built a basic raft and started to ferry their troops across the river, the raft was rather large, taking a platoon of men at a time, and soon each company was across and the men started fraternising and forming ranks.

"Boas vindas, amigos" a South African officer smiled as he was introduced to the commander of the Portuguese unit, Major Fernández, "I am Captain Prinsloo, welcome to Namibië"

Tokyo, Japan

Prime Minister Eisaku Satō took a few sips from his tea cup as his advisers presented his daily briefing. A topic that was on all of their minds was the United States' involvement in Vietnam. American forces in Vietnam were still reeling from a surprise offensive conducted by the Vietcong. Public support for the conflict plummeted as casualties continued to mount.

Satō and his cabinet also expressed concern with an increasingly belligerent China and Soviet Union. Article 9 of the Japanese constitution prevented Japan from deploying overseas and maintaining offensive capabilities. If they were to find themselves in a war with either of these nations, it would be clear that they would be at a massive disadvantage.

Satō sent a telegram to the United States to voice his concerns.

Code: Select all
  To: President Johnson of the United States of America,
We have been closely analyzing the situation in Vietnam for several months. Like your nation, we are greatly concerned with the global spread of Communism. Unfortunately, due to restrictions imposed upon our military, we cannot offer military aid at this time. According to the current security treaty, our nation cannot maintain a conventional military force. I kindly ask of you to repeal this archaic restriction. Our nation abandoned militarism many years ago. If you agree to lift this restriction, my nation is willing to pledge twenty thousand troops to the present conflict in Vietnam.

Presidential Palace, Buenos Aires,Argentina

President Carlos sat in his desk, staring at a few folders in front of him. He opened his drawer and took out his agenda and placed it to the right of his desk and then took out his ledger and placed it to his left. He opened his agenda and a list of items were reviewed. He opened up the first folder:

Image
Status Report from High Command and Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces:
300,000 soldiers are fully equipped and receive adequate training
100,000 withdrawn from Reserve pool to begin Republican Guard force
Presidential Guard now numbers at exactly 80,000
Reserves are now at 200,000, enlistment campaign for reserves to begin shortly
stockpile review reports that we are oversupplied with materials and munitions and no ammo is needed presently
Armory reports 578 fully operational T-60 tanks with 22 still in repair
Air Marshall reports 400 fully operational fighter jets and bombers but 50 need fueling, recommend purchasing of cargo planes
Secretary of the Navy and Sea Admiral claim 50 ships are operational but recommend the immediate constructionof a few more battleships, gun boats, and Amphibious assault craft
Monthly Status report finished

He looked over the report and grinned a bit, he took a sip of American imported whiskey and set the glass down.He crossed his legs and grabbed the next folder and read:
Image
Reports from the Secretary of Finances
Oil refineries pump oil at steady rate increasing revenue intake by a monthly $1,565,808 USD
Coal, Iron ore, copper, and steel expected to fall steadily by .76% this month and the next 3
Investors from England, the US, and Germany bought a few stocks of Argentine Agricultural and Industrial shares
New weapons program expected to launch sometime this month with a Weapons investment fund averaging a total of $122,000,00 USD
subsidies for land already in place and materials are being sent to location should employ around 1 million in a half
Uranium mining increased ten fold this month, our policy of no exporting still stands
Overall Argentine expenditures total at $684,859,614 USD, leaving with a spending limit of $893,847,391 USD
Financial Office recommends to invest in local infrastructure and industry development, socially create a fund to assist in procuring pharmaceutical supplies and more books for education, plans with Education Office to open 8 new Primary schools and 4 new Secondary schools
Report for Finances concluded

He put down the folder and took a gulp of his whiskey, he had big plans for this nation. He planned to first develop it internally and then focus on expansion. Brazil was no threat to him in the north and viewed them as a potential ally. He wanted to get close to both Russia and the US, to play nice with him so they wouldn't intervene in his long range plans. He always considered the Falkland Islands as Argentine territory and intended to take it back soon.

East Berlin, January 2nd, 1969, Military Post B-4
The soldiers stand at the ready along the Berlin Wall, prepared at any moment to open fire upon the West Germans, suddenly movement is detected, a man from their side was trying to dig a tunnel under their walls and with so much attention on the other side they had been distracted. They sent two men to confront him. They asked "Why are you digging under our walls? Do you wish to defect to the West and become yet another of their puppets?" The man stopped digging and replied, "My mother lives there and last I heard she was sick." To the soldiers this was a violation yet a reasonable one, they halted him and confronted command, they would be reassigned to another post in the countryside later that week. The man disappears, no one hears of him again.

East German HQ, East Germany, January 2nd, 1969
The Head of State, Walter Ulbricht and Head of Government Willi Stoph met in a secret meeting, one to address the building tension between the Communist and Capitalist ideologies that have been growing. Newly hired political analyst Horton Koledenburg asked "Should we be more friendly to the west? Perhaps friendly relations would benefit our economy. We may even get to become neutral in this growing tension between the Soviets and the Americans." Walter stopped him there "Now that is interesting, but as the West Germans refuse to recognize our existence there is no way of conducting such agreements with their supporters in America. Besides the Russians have always been there for us, when did the U.S. show one sign of being a friendly helping nation since Roosevelt? Never, with the slight exception of Kennedy the Americans have always been Imperialists with their only goal being to secure trade routs and military posts abroad." Willi Stoph added "I don't think that's going far enough, we shouldn't be waiting for them to make a move, I have a plan to send a message to the Soviets asking for assistance in securing the border and protecting us from the Capitalist warmongers." The conversation went on with the Heads of the Army, Navy, Police, and Air-Force siding with Willi and so his plan was set.

Brasília, January 2nd, 1969

The American President landed at Brasília International Airport with the pomp and ceremony due to him, walking passed the polished and uniformed men of the 1st Guards Cavalry Regiment, the Presidential Guard Battalion and the Cayenne Battery. Artur da Costa e Silva was on hand to welcome the American President first, before the usual introductions and greetings followed.

Silva's first impression of the American was positive. He felt like he could see something of himself in the hard-faced American that had made great reforms despite the inherint opposition of his government. This was instantly soured by the recollection of the fact that this man would weild but a fraction of the power he currently held in another few weeks, once the new man, Nixon took over.

Nevertheless, that was no excuse to be rude, and Silva did his best to keep the American engaged as they made their way to the cars and were whisked through the sunny city. The great buildings of a city less than a decade old were all pointed out to the soon -to-be ex-President of the United States. Despite the extremely short notice of the visit, there was still a significant number of bystanders gathered on the streets to watch the procession, though they were treated to a poor show of several black estate cars. Most noticable was the large security prescence. Policemen were in sight all along the route, and away from American eyes military police had been posted in the event of trouble, but no organized protests developed.

After several hours of the expected tours, introductions and speeches from both Presidents, Silva and Johnson sat down for the discussion that was the entire purpose of the visit. A man of few words, Silva quickly discussed what was his concerns. 70 years old, he had long ago lost the knack of enduring small talk.

"Mr Johnson, my nation is in need of a strong friend on the international stage. The relationship between our nations is strong, and the treaty proposal I dispatched to you yesterday is the most direct and significant way in which we can strengthen that relationship."

"I am aware of American security concerns in South America, and I can assure you that Brazil shares these concerns as well. Should you, your government and your sucessor agree to the establishment of the Brazilian sphere of influence as being South of the Panama Canal, both myself and my government would assure you that we would act as if American and Brazilian interests were one and the same. As far as I am concerned, with Latin American affairs, they already are."

"The remaining terms of my proposal should be self-explainitory. The Brazilian military is in a sad and sorry state, worse still, it is times such as these that it must be most prepared. American military aid would help to press home the reforms I have in mind for my nation. The sale of an excess American carrier to Brazil would help to bolster Brazil's military standing in the region, if not make us the dominant military force and have the additional effect of allowing your Navy to send ships elsewhere without the risk of leaving Latin America without a deterent to any action. I know I need not stress the vital importance and benefits of having a strong friend in Latin American affairs."

"I think I have made my position clear, Mr Johnson. Have you anything you wish to raise? As you can understand, I hope I am as eager as you to see this treaty signed and ratified."

While the two President's discussed matters of state, a diplomatic message composed prior to the American's arrival was transmitted to the Argentine government.

Code: Select all
To the government of Argentina,

In the interests of South American unity, my government would like to present you with the following proposal in the hope of establishing closer ties between our fraternal nations. My government would propose an agreement whereby:

- Our governments co-operate in order to further our nations on a regional and international stage.
- The establishment of regular joint military and staff exercises, on land, sea and in the air.
- Co-operation in development of military weaponary, with a mind to standardize weaponary to arms that can be produced in Latin America by Latin American nations.
- Co-operation on matters of inteligence and sharing of information.
- Establishment of economic ties with the goal of furthering trade between our nations and increasing mutual exports abroad.

Further suggestions are more than welcome, as should your government wish for closer ties, we would be more than happy to consider your proposal.

Yours, hopefully in prosperity, President Artur da Costa e Silva

President Lyndon B. Johnson looked outside to all the Brazilian traffic caused by the motorcade and the people cheering them along. He noticed how the Brazilian infrastructure in the main cities was pretty decent. While looking out the window, he spoke to the President of Brazil.

"I have thought about your arrangement, in the other Limo I have three four star generals of the United States Air Force,Navy, and Army ready to train the Brazilian military as requested. They are top dogs in America, and hope they can serve you well as they have us. We also do want to open economic trades with you, but you must specify what you wish."

The president looks back towards the president, his motorcade of Brazilian Police and U.S Secret Service outside of the Presidential palace..

"America does see Brazil as the most Democratic and the Strongest power in South America. And it would be wise to formally acknowledge that. We really appreciate your stance on communism, we just wish that you report any Russian influence in the region to us so we may take steps to blockade them from doing more damage then they are."

President Johnson continues to look at the window, smiling as the people praise him and the Brazilian president.

"About the Aircraft Carrier, I thought about giving you the retiring Independence-class USS Monterey, along with Essex-class USS Lake Champlain. These are wonderful ships we fought the Japanese fleet out, and they are still operational today, but as we keep upgrading carriers, we see no use for the old vessels. How about instead of scrapping them, we transfer them to you?"

Johnson's Secretary lays out the two ships and information about them for the Brazilian President.

Salisbury, Rhodesia

Ian Smith hurried through the hallways of the government building. There was a constant chatter, secretaries running with sheets of paper, people yelling across rooms and hallways. Such was the state of a nation under siege. Smith entered his office, several of his officials waiting for him. He sat and said "Yes, gentlemen?" One of them cleared his throat and said "Sir, we need to push for international recognition." Smith held his hands up and said "What do you want me to do? The UN calls us racist and illegitimate, the eastern bloc is the enemy, and the west still somehow manages to villainize us!" The man nodded and responded calmly. "We have allies in the South Africans and Portuguese." Ian sighed. "Actual racists and an imperialist dictatorship." One of the other men, a diplomat it seemed, retorted "Sir, both nations have been vital in the fight against the insurgents."

Smith turned red faced to him and said loudly "Yet neither one recognizes us as a nation! The South Africans get pressured out of it by their neighbors and the Portuguese lack the courage!" The man was almost pushed back by Smith's booming. "We need a platform to stand on, something, anything to back us up diplomatically." Smith said, calming. One of the typically quiet men said "The Americans are getting a new president in less than a month. Maybe his policies will be beneficial." Smith waved his hand. "We fight communists and the Americans embargo us. I have no faith in Washington." The men looked at each other, but said nothing, filing out of the office. Smith sat back, rubbing his temple.
Rhodesian Mission, Lisboa, Portugal

It was always good news when the Portuguese wanted to chat, Harry Reedman thought. Unless of course they wanted help in their own African holdings. Mr. Nogueira had come in, they shared some small talk, then it got down to business. The man mentioned the Zoio brothers, saints in the eyes of the Rhodesian military. He then dropped the bomb. Portugal was offering them planes and that resource oh so vital, but thanks to the embargo, oh so rare, oil. Reedman smiled and listened to the rest of the proposal, then considered his words carefully. "On behalf of the Rhodesian government, I would like to accept. A pleasure to do business with you again, our meetings have been most fruitful." Reedman paused, thinking about the next few words. "As always, the Rhodesian government would like to emphasize it's value on recognition. I'm sure our government would be happy to offer Portugal whatever it needs in Africa in exchange."
Somewhere north of Wanke, Rhodesia

Rifleman Travers clicked his safety on and off while creeping through the bush. Pierson turned and whispered "Will you stop that!?" Travers stopped clicking immediately. The commander turned and whispered quickly "INTAF's report puts the insurgents not far north. Travers, go around west, keep us in your sights. You see one of them and you signal like this." He whistled a bird call. It wasn't local but it also wasn't obscure enough to cause suspicion. Travers split from the group, taking the higher ground in the hilly western areas. He crawled along and watched the rest of the team doing the same. If he didn't know they were there, they would have been invisible. Movement. His eye was drawn to a small clearing ahead. Three men, natives, with rusty rifles in their hands and wearing no uniform. Travers whistled as commander said, and was satisfied to see the almost undetectable shapes halt.

Commander's hand went up and Travers watched the signals. When the hand went down the group broke. Travers crept to a nice spot with a clear shot at the clearing and waited until he saw he rest of the shapes stop. He pointed the sight at the head of one of the insurgents, took a deep breath, and shot. As soon as his shot rang out the rest of his unit fired into the clearing. The insurgents were dead in seconds. The shapes stood up and slowly made their way towards the clearing. Travers climbed down and saw commander shaking his head. "No, no, this isn't right. INTAF reported fifty at least." Crunch. "Get down!" commander yelled, and the unit jumped out of the clearing as a hail of bullets flew into it. "Damn it! Travers, Pierson, around the left! Kruger, with me!" The group broke cover and commander and Kruger provided cover as Travers made his way around with Pierson. Travers passed a tall bush and right in his face one of the insurgents stood. Without even time to think, he squeezed the trigger, dropping him.

There was a yell from the other pair. Travers watched the both dive in different directions as an explosive went off. Where the hell did they get grenades?! Before Travers could inspect his comrades to see if they had lived, a chattering rang out. Sparks flew on a rock in front of him and he ducked. "Son of a bitch has a Kalashnikov!"

Wednesday 1st January 1969
Cabinet Room,
Downing Street, Westminster,
London, UK
13:09


The Prime Minister paused for a moment and lifted his pipe to his mouth. His fellow ministers waited for their leader to bemuse the latest thought regarding employment figures whilst he enjoyed his pipe before continuing. The chancellor, Roy Jenkins, sighed and turned the page of his latest briefing book.

‘As such, that’s the state of the economy Prime Minister.’

Wilson nodded, ‘Excellent. You’re making fine progress with the finances and deficit in particular Roy.’

‘And if the tories decide to promise more spending come 1971 we’ll be massacred in the polls,’ Jenkins remarked.

‘Heath won’t do that. He’s one of those new classical liberals, remember Roy?’

The cabinet chuckled. The recent reforms Edward Heath had been making to his party had surprised some in the Labour party, but Wilson knew it was a trick. The tories were as rooted to paternalism as they had ever been, stuck in the past. Now he had watched with glinted eyes how Labour were described as the ‘natural party of government’.

‘Anyway, foreign office?’

Wilson’s foreign secretary, Michael Stewart, had taken over the foreign office only a year earlier-after George Brown’s drinking problem became too much to bear. It had not been an easy time in the realm of foreign affairs. Whilst Wilson wanted membership his party was bitterly split on the issue of the European Community. He had been pressured to join the Vietnam war since moving into Downing Street, with the American defence secretary urging Britain to ‘pay the blood price’ of the special relationship. And to top things off Rhodesia was causing a headache. The security council was still imposing sanctions and no major power recognised the Smith regime, but it was a stain on Wilson’s otherwise good record, one he’d like to mop up.

Michael Stewart flicked a few pages into his own notes, ‘First of, a telegram from the Brazilians regarding closer trading relationship and investment in their country. President Silva specifically mentions the development of the aircraft industry, Rolls-Royce etc. They want jet designs in return for more advantageous trade terms.’

‘Tricky,’ Wilson bemused, once more smoking his pipe, ‘Since that bloody coup the junta’s ruled them.’

‘No thanks to the Americans,’ Barbara Castle, the first secretary of state and employment remarked, ‘They’re cosying up nicely.’

‘Yes. I’ll reply-we’ll give them some trade deals, but we’ll put some democratic conditions in there as well. It’s worth a shot,’ Wilson said, ‘What’s next?’

‘The Japanese want to get involved in Vietnam,’ Stewart said.

‘Good grief! Have they no sense!’ Jenkins said.

‘It is on their doorstep Roy. Michael, does it concern us?’ Wilson asked.

‘It may put more pressure on us to send troops, but more importantly the Japanese will require the abolition of a large part of the San Francisco treaty. We don’t have a direct hand in it but you may want to make your opinion known to President Johnson, particularly if you have an objection.’

‘I don’t have a particular objection. Anyone else?’ Wilson asked.

A few shrugs and coughs were heard, but otherwise the room was silent.

‘Now look I’m going to take a look at the EC later on, so apart from those two things is there anything else in foreign affairs?’ Wilson asked.

‘Nothing other than Rhodesia. That is, unless you are happy with the current state of affairs,’ Stewart said.

‘Nobody’s happy. Trying to deal with a regime like that is like dealing with a brick wall.’

‘There are other options of course sir, I know you’re reluctant,’ Stewart remarked.

‘We’ll come to that bridge if and only if we have to cross it. I think we should give it another go-talks that is. I’ll send of a telegram. If that’s everything ladies and gentlemen…’

Wilson’s words trailed off as the cabinet collectively rose, said thanks to the prime minister and exited the cabinet room. Sitting alone with his pipe and thoughts Wilson began writing up some telegrams with the help of his personal secretary.

CLASSIFICATION: DIPLOMATIC HIGHEST PROTECTION
TO: President Artur da Costa e Silva
FROM: The Rt. Hon Harold Wilson MP, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your recent telegram regarding trade deals and the aircraft industry. The military coup of 1964 was met with shock and outrage, both in Brazil and here in the United Kingdom. Decisions taken by the military regime of which you are a part, such as the AI-5 act have only added to the outrage and disappointed many in the Western world who wish to see a democratic, free and prosperous Brazil. With this in mind I would be greatly enthused by a future trade deal, including on the area of the aircraft industry, however the United Kingdom must see some sign of faith-a democratic reform from Brazil before trade talks can begin in earnest. If democratic reforms are undertaken not only can a trade deal be discussed but a wider, military, cultural and diplomatic deal between our two countries. I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Harold Wilson MP
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland


CLASSIFICATION: DIPLOMATIC HIGHEST PROTECTION
TO: President Lyndon Johnson
FROM: The Rt. Hon Harold Wilson MP, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Dear Sir,

As your presidency approaches its end, I want to wish you all the best in your future endeavours and hope that the work we have done together over the past six years has been beneficial for both our people. I can only hope that the special relationship between our two countries grows stronger in the coming years and generations.

Yours faithfully,

Harold Wilson MP
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland


CLASSIFICATION: DIPLOMATIC HIGHEST PROTECTION
TO: Prime Minister Ian Smith
FROM: The Rt. Hon Harold Wilson MP, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Dear Sir,

The current state of affairs between our two countries is not satisfactory for either of us. Whilst I can make no promises with regards to any changes, I wish to organise a meeting between you and myself where the current state of relations, affairs, sanctions and international recognition of your regime can be discussed and where, perhaps, a deal can be made. I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Harold Wilson MP
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

OOC:My previous IC post was three months before this
A fine day in Belgrade, the capital of Yugoslavia.
Josip Broz Tito was in the pallace of the federation, he in the office of the secretary of internal affairs. The prime minister of Yugoslavia was also in the office.
-The world is on the brink of war, yet we are neutral.
said Tito
-Comrade Tito, we are a target, both of the US and the USSR, we cant count on their readyness to avoind us if there is a war to be. Look at Belgium, it was neutral in WWI and WWII yet it was attacked twice. Yugoslavia, particularily Serbia, has a good strategic position and is rich of lithium, copper,coal... We must choose a side, one day.

-Peter, I understand. I think too about that, but the Non-aligned movement has became a unique power. We rounded more countries up that NATO and the Warsaw pact will ever have. Yet we do not seek power and dominance, we seek to preserve peace. Do you think I would let Yugoslavia to crumble? Nonsense, that is why we started the modernisation of the army, that is why we are increasing the number of years a man has to spend in the army, two years is more than enough to have a efficient conscript army... Ivan, you have called us for an another thing, sorry I almost forgot. Please speak...

-Comrade prime minister,Comrade Tito. I have called you today to my office to give you top secret news that I have recieved trom the Board of State Security. The BSS has recieved information that somekind of a rebel organisation exists in Yugoslavia. What we know is that it is located in Serbia, so we presume that they are nationalists. We also think that they have connections with the Chetnik general Dragoljub Draža Mihajlović who was last seen in Bosnian in 1946. We still believe that Draža is hiding somewhere, yet we dont know that.

Tito felt uncofortable, for the first time since WWII he felt fear. He knew what kind of a threat a Serb nationalist organisation could pose, particularily if they have support of the people.

-How long does this organisation exist?

-We dont know, the only thing we know is that they exist.

-And how did you found out that they do?

-The whole city of Kragujevac was in postes that they made...

-WHAT?!

-Comrade Tit...

-WHY DIDNT YOU TELL ME THIS? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN? ARE YOU AWARE THAT ANY KIND OF NATIONALIST ORGANISATIONS, PARTICULARILY SERB ARE DANGEROUS TO OUR BROTHERHOOD AND UNITY!

-Comrade... that happened yesterday, but the news didnt publish anything, we will try as hard as we can to stop the news about Kragujevac spreading.

-How did the people react?

-The ordinary citizens that werent involved i politics so much were amazed, many thought that Yugoslavia had elections. The other side that was involved in politics along with the policemen who saw that, were swearing and cursing the organisation saying that its just a band of traitors.

Brasília, January 2nd, 1969

Silva listened to what the President had to say, then breifly looked through the files for the proposed warships the American's were willing to part with. Satsified, he closed the folders and resumed the conversation.

"While I welcome such high-ranking officers of your military, there usefullness is...questionable, if you forgive me for sayin so. Generals my own country has aplenty, some say to many of them!" Silva gave a small chuckle to lighten the situation, for he had been a general himself a short time ago. "When I requested miliary aid, I was hoping for speicalists. Drill instructors, pilots, tank instructors, naval weapons specialists, veteran infantry instructors and the like rather than their generals. Though I do not doubt their qualifications, it is men at the level of the company and the battalion that my country needs, not at the level of the division, corp and army."

"For our trading concerns, we would appreicate an agreement to better facilitate the freeer flowing of trade between our nations, as well as a reduction on import tarrifs for Brazilian products such as coffee and fresh fruit. The investment of capital in to the growing Brazilian industrial sector sponsored and encourage by the American government would be welcomed as well."

Silva, waving the folders, continued. "My government would be very thankfull towards America should you present us with these ships. If your nation has no use for them, Brazil certainly shall!"

Sensing that the meeting was coming to a close, Silva decided to formally end it.

"I think that is us now in full understanding of each others position. If I am not mistaken, you are to travel tomorrow for Rio de Janerio for to see another small part of this nation. If you have any further concerns that you wish to raise, I will be in Rio de Janerio tomorrow to see you safely home and we can confer again. Hopefully we shall have signatures on this proposal before you depart back to America!"

Following the usual and expected flury of handshakes an farewell's, Silva detached himself to turn to the work that had piled up while in conferance with the American President.

Code: Select all
To: The government of Britain

It is easy for your government to make such sweeping judgements from a nation firmly protected from the threat of communism by he bulk of NATO, but I can assure you that the measures taken by my government were done with the goal of defending Brazilian democracy in the face of a concerted effort to undermine it. I need not state the fact that I was elected to my present position, and though there has been a short period of needed restrictions in order to maintain order, Brazil is and will remain a democratic nation. I can assure the British government that these legalistic restrictions will be lifted the instant the country is safe and stable and the threat removed.

The relations between our nations have remained excellent, though I view the present stance of the British government to be totally unjustified and detrimential to relations, I will excuse it as being a stance based on misinformation and misunderstanding. However, should the British government persisit in holding it's present stance in spite of the assurances I have presented, I will raise the issue with the American President as being destructive to trust, co-operation and development between our nations.

Yours, hopefully in prosperity, President Artur da Costa e Silva
