Klarikian-Philuan war

After the victory of Klarik over Philu in the quest for independence, Philu faced a crash in their economy. The international community laughed at philu. With the economy and little international recognition, Philu resorted to the only option available. War. Now the question is, can klarik survive?

This question, quite simply, would almost certainly be influenced by the fringes of such international community who take a bigger affront to such political turmoil.

For example, the news of Klarikian independence and subsequent Philuan economic collapse was perceived among many business-oriented nation-states, naturally, as quite uncomfortable for business. In many countries, this required a re-examination of the frequent hands-off approach to serious diplomatic involvement. One such nation, the Esperanto-loving Corporate Police State Federation of Komerco, known for having prided herself in the occasionally extreme laissez-faire philosophy, recognized in a slightly stronger capacity the need to rejuvenate foreign investments inwards and outwards by definitive action.

To understand that decision, a bit of foreground should be laid on what motivated Komercoan involvement. Though not really energized on the premise of ideology – even as Komerco had grown up a fairly authoritarian system – the question of free enterprise and the ability for capital flow (the movement of commerce) greatly identified which issues were a matter of leaving alone to actively correcting in the eyes of the business exec administration of Komerco. For better or worse, the governing elite viewed their quasi-federation no less of an open system than a Nukes4U subsidiary in a temperate nation. And yet, they recognized that the prosperity of many nations often depend on each other in success or failure, somewhat conflicting their stated viewpoint. It's worth noting that there were only ever a few economists or technocrats (strangely enough) in such an economy-narrated regime. Nonetheless, they always appeared to find some amalgamation of getting things done and better, even if most of them didn't really understand how.

In any serious diplomatic action such as even this, as one can expect, this often involved bureaucratic decisions which came in odds with people who truly did know what they were talking about. The deployment of 2 platoons, numbering 100-strong in standard infantry, came at the awfully light command structure of a Captain Ramon Teixidó, two Sergeant-Majors, and 3 Corporals. Compared to other nations which pondered involvement, tallying Generals and likely a whole HQ alongside them, the thin veneer of on-the-field and off-the-field military administration greatly increased an unnecessarily large backlog of half-finished operational briefs. This company, known as B Company, was by no means sent in as a force properly-collected for the task ahead; and yet with the snappiness of a council of corporate sharks seizing an opportunity, they were off just the same.

Having prepared what basic equipment they could in their drab maroon-green combat uniforms, 200 Heckler and Koch G36 assault rifles, 4 squadron survival kits including basic supplies, tent-work and Komercoan army knives, and several sets of specialized gear from personnel-manned anti-air and anti-tank weaponry selected to satisfy for most situations foreseen from the boardroom PowerPoint on the matter, numbering 10+ tons in all. All that was left for these men and women to foresee, was the call to move in by civil yacht transports. Situated still at the civilian harbor of the Komercoan capital, Urbo de Medici, a heavily-encrypted call was forwarded from the upper echelons of military command of Komerco to their counterparts in Philu, requesting a confirmation of Komercoan deployment in support of Philu's planned aggression. Interestingly enough, the Federation didn't think to give any naval escort in the prep phase, which may or may not have been in covertness of the op or due to the poor army-navy relations which existed at the time. Either way, no request for one arrived.

The largest grouping of troops in one place in Philuan history has been broken. 1 million army troops and 100,000 marines were going into a protected convoy of 30 frigates to protect them. They were armed with their AKMs and dozens of vehicles. All of this to reconquer to large independent (Officially still in rebellion in official Philuan documents) Klarik. The Komerco force were going to come to aid. This will change the face of time.

Admittedly, such a show force seemed anything but magnanimous, especially when Klarik's desperate cry for help seemed to grasp no return from democracies across the world. Even Komerco, as per laid-out restrictions, could only have granted the small 200-troop force that by the Philuan naval armada's gathering seemed increasingly under-bought as the waters became shallower; although for fear that militaristic opportunism lay waste to all nations alike, it was more than considerate and generally comfortable for the right-leaning Federation. Go in, aid an offensive, build a reputation, and profit. It was a deal the bureaucrats were willing to make, yet it was a deal the army would get done in life or death.

The yachts which transported these troops, privately-owned, were much less inclined to such a vigourous attitude. Nicely-designed and accommodating in rations and the roughness of dumped military sacks, the civil liners amidst stations of war seemed meek and timid as the tides of battle shifted forward . . .
