Ha. Oops. Was adding a line and got distracted by work.

So I have a pretty simple question. How soon will the international community know the results of the Battle of Del Rosario Delta? Is there going to be a press conference on the aftermath?

There's a press conference, yeah. I'll try to write a news post today.

I have some really neat ideas for obstacles to the Pueblo Ignacio attack. Simply travelling up the river is gonna be shit, but I bet a little village with an old colonial Spanish church has its ways of surviving.

Tomorrow, I'll be writing a news post. Then the fleets will be dispatched.

I wonder how Mik will respond if I get 2 or 3 nations to deploy forces

Pants will be changed, "gosh fecking darnit"s will be uttered, and the fleet will be sent underway.

So, Dormill and Stiura is going to be in a weird position. Here's why:

President Dyson knows all too well that if this war drags out, the loss of both Javerian and Mennan oil will spell disaster for Dormill and Stiura's economy in the short term. And short term losses is unacceptable given that it is an election year, every bad thing will be painted as a failure on the administration even if minimal, inconsequential, or quickly resolved. His plans will be to meet with Almorean and Totzkan leaders to hammer out a "stopgap" agreement where Dormill and Stiura gets privileged access to Almorean-Totzkan Oil in exchange for closer diplomatic ties with suggestions of some light military alliance (as Almorea put it when we discussed it "the springboard for closer ties to counteract MSTO influence").

At the same time as that, ending this war between Menna and San Javier is of an utmost priority so there's going to be an aim of assembling a Gaeltic task force (or building one from those already involved) to better coordinate the war effort. This will be justified at home by the argument that a quicker conflict will still achieve its goals while limiting the economic impacts and that Dormill and Stiura is continuing to stand up for the rule of law, even if that law is considered by most to be enforced by a government entirely antithetical to Dormill and Stiura.

In all, Dormill and Stiura will send the 1st Coastal Assault Squadron in its entirety alongside the 17th Airborne Regiment to be involved in this conflict. Now I also discussed this with Ainslie a few days back and I was wondering what would happen if Vancouvia was to deny access to my ships via the ID (considering that he basically controls the ID's government), which would force my navy to take the long way around Gael? Otherwise, the Navy will take about half a week to sail to position, the 17th will take about a day or two. This will happen after about 2 days of preparation by the MoD to get the logistical situation sorted out and to communicate with whoever else is involved alongside the Mennans (and of course the Mennans themselves).

Finally, as an OOC thing, due to my work schedule I won't be able to really post during the weekends and only on Mondays and Tusedays, if there are any military actions that would or should involve Dormill-Stiuraian forces I would like (and grant permission to) for any relevant posters to mention them and their part in the conflict. Just be sure to contact me if something drastic happens in the course of this that would require my attention or approval.


Also if your navy was forced to take the long way around you'd have to go right past Thur (and me close by) and depending how hot this war was getting there would be potential for an ambush there

Probably not in the cards. No one is going to WANT to attack each other. Too much to lose, too little to gain. It's basically gonna be a larger version of what Menna did to SJ- All bravado until someone calls the bluff.

neg, good. I like. I'll mention the leftists thinking about joining up with you as well, though they will be banking mostly on the AMI contacts.

I reckon it would make sense for them to get in contact at least, probably via "the university" which is whatever university makes most sense to have hardcore college lefties. AMI as well, if they come to us. We can use satellite phones once we have that link.

Alright, I'll include that in my post. What is the acronym and it looks like you're a catholic militia. Would they have been at Santa Ana? Would they have committed crimes against humanity? Or are these a newer group?

They are Liberation Theology yeah. Acronym is ANLF, Andradista National Liberation Front. They were at Santa Ana, but probably are on the more humane side of things when it comes to massacres and stuff.

Ok, my guys (Leandro and Manolo) are both Santa Ana Vets. Leandro was definitely a "throw bodies at their tanks" kinda guy, but Manolo was not. They'll be putting out feelers now that this has happened.

Yeah that there is entirely off the cards from an OOC perspective. There is no good reason for the Dothraki Navy to attack the United Republics Navy unless you’re itching for a war with nearly all of the East, and I am not interested in redirecting my entire energy in this RP to fight you.

It would be pretty lame if IW3 started off from a shitty conflict in the South that literally has no value other than some honor and some drug cartels.

Menna Shuli how are you wanting the Battle of Pueblo Ignacio to go? Victory, defeat or tie? I was thinking of having a company of 250 men moved there to backup the locals.

Cultural appropriation. You might as well just use either the popular revolution or the other one cos they were the relevant ones historically
