The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991), It was codenamed Operation Desert Shield (2 August 1990 – 17 January 1991) for operations leading to the buildup of troops and defense of Saudi Arabia and Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) in its combat phase. In Croatia, the war is primarily referred to as the "Homeland War" (Croatian: Domovinski rat) and also as the "Greater-Serbian Aggression" (Croatian: Velikosrpska agresija). In Serbian sources, "War in Croatia" (Serbian Cyrillic: Рат у Хрватској, romanized: Rat u Hrvatskoj) and (rarely) "War in Krajina" (Serbian Cyrillic: Рат у Крајини, romanized: Rat u Krajini) are used between Republican Loyalists and a Democratic Resistance, comprised of the so-called West and East Coast Pacts. during which the US lost half of all its troops sent into the war, while also suffering from a economic collapse. A majority of Croats wanted Croatia to leave Yugoslavia and become a sovereign country, while many ethnic Serbs living in Croatia, supported by Serbia, opposed the secession and wanted Serb-claimed lands to be in a common state with Serbia. Most Serbs sought a new Serb state within a Yugoslav federation, including areas of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina with ethnic Serb majorities or significant minorities, and attempted to conquer as much of Croatia as possible. Croatia declared independence on 25 June 1991, but agreed to postpone it with the Brioni Agreement and cut all remaining ties with Yugoslavia on 8 October 1991. The civil war began primarily as a result of severe and long-standing controversies over the administration of US president Donald J. Trump and his policies, which were accelerated by WW3. The losses suffered in the world war, and the decision of the Trump administration to neglect its Allies in Europe in favor of the former Revisionist Power Russia, lead to massive protests and tensions in American society. Conflict broke out in November 2028 after a failed assasination attempt against President Trump, who served his second term, executed by a left-wing extremist. After this, Trump tried to suspend new elections, which lead to months of public protests and controversy. The oppositional Democrats nonetheless held the election as planned, leading to claims of the incumbent president that they would once again try to steal an election from the Republicans, as he did in 2020 onwards. This resulted in more and more violent clashes and attacks between Trump-Loyalists and critical fractions of the US society.
The JNA initially tried to keep Croatia within Yugoslavia by occupying all of Croatia. After this failed, Serb forces established the self-proclaimed proto-state Republic of Serbian Krajina (RSK) within Croatia. After the ceasefire of January 1992 and international recognition of the Republic of Croatia as a sovereign state, the front lines were entrenched, the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR) was deployed, and combat became largely intermittent in the following three years. During that time, the RSK encompassed 13,913 square kilometers (5,372 sq mi), more than a quarter of Croatia. In 1995, Croatia launched two major offensives known as Operation Flash and Operation Storm, these offensives effectively ended the war in its favor. The remaining United Nations Transitional Authority for Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Sirmium (UNTAES) zone was peacefully reintegrated into Croatia by 1998
After several incidents of Democratic followers being killed by Trump-loyalists, as well as republican followers in return, the conflict escalated into civil-war like unrests all over the country. The US Army was used to strike down the uprisings, but since a lot of American soldiers, especially of the younger generation that was conscripted during WW3, were also critical of the governments actions, this lead to a split inside the US armed forces. Fractions of the US Army joined the Democratic uprisings, and soon after, several Democrat-dominated areas started to proclaim that they won't follow Washington's orders anymore. The Democratic rebellion was deemed treacherous by Republican loyalists, who now openly endorsed the use of force against the rebels. After the Army-Split of 2029/2030, the Republican loyalist forces began to block and besiege densely populated democratic cities, in order to stop the uprisings. The result was a direct military confrontation between both Republican and Democratic armed forces, leading to the first military casualties of the now official civil war. The civillian population started to form armed militias, which not only sabotaged the respective opposing forces, but also conducted violent assaults on civillians from the other party. The Civil War also lead to an escalation of ethnic tensions in America, in form of racially motivated crimes and attacks being conducted by the republican loyalists, newly formed African-American militias and other extremist forces.The escalating violence of the Second American Civil War led to other nations and institutions to become involved as well. Both continental neighbours of the US, Canada and Mexico, condemned the violence, while making the republican loyalists responsible for the escalation. The successor of the UN, the League of the United Nations, tried to mediate between the fractions, but was seen as hostile interference, leading the armed branch of the League, the LUN Stability Corps to deploy peace keeping troops in the democratic held areas, while also reinforcing the borders of Canada and Mexico. The war saw the involvement of various other nations, among those former Revisionist Powers and collaborateurs, like Russia and the so called "Visegrad-Resistance " states of Italy and Hungary, who supported the republican loyalists. The short lived, and self-proclaimed Saudi Wahabi Caliphate also supported the party of its former ally Trump, before it was dissolved by the LUN Stability Corps, as did other authoritarian states like Brazil and South Africa. The Democratic rebellion saw support from the LUN, the EU and its armed body, the Alliance of the United Forces, as well as other formerly pro-american states, while the newly founded Republic of China also sided with the democratic rebels.Puerto Rico became a new state of the Union, aligning with the Democrats. While pockets of armed resistance and fighting remained active, especially in the rural areas of the US, the main fighting stayed inconclusive.
The war was part of the breakup of Yugoslavia. Following the Slovenian and Croatian secessions from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1991, the multi-ethnic Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina – which was inhabited by mainly Muslim Bosniaks (44%), as well as Orthodox Serbs (32.5%) and Catholic Croats (17%) – passed a referendum for independence on 29 February 1992. Political representatives of the Bosnian Serbs boycotted the referendum, and rejected its outcome. Following Bosnia and Herzegovina's declaration of independence (which gained international recognition) and following the withdrawal of Alija Izetbegović from the previously signed Cutileiro Plan (which proposed a division of Bosnia into ethnic cantons), the Bosnian Serbs, led by Radovan Karadžić and supported by the Serbian government of Slobodan Milošević and the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA), mobilised their forces inside Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to secure ethnic Serb territory, then war soon spread across the country, accompanied by ethnic cleansing.
The conflict was initially between the Yugoslav Army units in Bosnia which later transformed into the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) on the one side, and the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBiH) which was largely composed of Bosniaks, and the Croat forces in the Croatian Defence Council (HVO) on the other side. Tensions between Croats and Bosniaks increased throughout late 1992, resulting in the Croat–Bosniak War that escalated in early 1993. The Bosnian War was characterised by bitter fighting, indiscriminate shelling of cities and towns, ethnic cleansing and systematic mass rape, mainly perpetrated by Serb, and to a lesser extent, Croat and Bosniak forces. Events such as the Siege of Sarajevo and the Srebrenica massacre later became iconic of the conflict.
The KLA, formed in the early 1990s to fight against Serbian persecution of Kosovo Albanians, initiated its first campaign in 1995 when it launched attacks against Serbian law enforcement in Kosovo. In June 1996 the group claimed responsibility for acts of sabotage targeting Kosovo police stations, during the Kosovo Insurgency. In 1997, the organisation acquired a large amount of arms through weapons smuggling from Albania, following a rebellion in which weapons were looted from the country's police and army posts. In early 1998, KLA attacks targeting Yugoslav authorities in Kosovo resulted in an increased presence of Serb paramilitaries and regular forces who subsequently began pursuing a campaign of retribution targeting KLA sympathisers and political opponents; this campaign killed 1,500 to 2,000 civilians and KLA combatants.
After attempts at a diplomatic solution failed, NATO intervened, justifying the campaign in Kosovo as a "humanitarian war". This precipitated a mass expulsion of Kosovar Albanians as the Yugoslav forces continued to fight during the aerial bombardment of Yugoslavia (March–June 1999). By 2000, investigations had recovered the remains of almost three thousand victims of all ethnicities, and in 2001 a United Nations administered Supreme Court, based in Kosovo, found that there had been "a systematic campaign of terror, including murders, rapes, arsons and severe maltreatments", but that Yugoslav troops had tried to remove rather than eradicate the Albanian population.
The war ended with Croatian victory, as it achieved the goals it had declared at the beginning of the war: independence and preservation of its borders. Approximately 21–25% of Croatia's economy was ruined, with an estimated US$37 billion in damaged infrastructure, lost output, and refugee-related costs. Over 20,000 people were killed in the war, and refugees were displaced on both sides. The Serb and Croatian governments began to progressively cooperate with each other but tensions remain, in part due to verdicts by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and lawsuits filed by each country against the other. It lasted from 27 June 1991 until 7 July 1991, when the Brioni Accords were signed. It marked the beginning of the Yugoslav Wars. The Serbs, although initially militarily superior due to the weapons and resources provided by the JNA, eventually lost momentum as the Bosniaks and Croats allied themselves against the Republika Srpska in 1994 with the creation of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina following the Washington agreement. Pakistan defied the UN's ban on supply of arms and airlifted missiles to the Bosnian Muslims, while after the Srebrenica and Markale massacres, NATO intervened in 1995 with Operation Deliberate Force targeting the positions of the Army of the Republika Srpska, which proved key in ending the war.[better source needed] The war was brought to an end after the signing of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina in Paris on 14 December 1995. Peace negotiations were held in Dayton, Ohio and were finalised on 21 November 1995. The war ended with the Kumanovo Treaty, with Yugoslav and Serb forces agreeing to withdraw from Kosovo to make way for an international presence. The Kosovo Liberation Army disbanded soon after this, with some of its members going on to fight for the UÇPMB in the Preševo Valley and others joining the National Liberation Army (NLA) and Albanian National Army (ANA) during the armed ethnic conflict in Macedonia, while others went on to form the Kosovo Police. The Second American Civil War pushed the US towards political change however, leading to an end of pseudo-Fascism, the persecution of American war criminals on all sides, as well as politicians deemed treasonous to the US during the era of the Trump administration. The war also initiated a re-integration process of the US into global partnerships, agreements and treaties, despite initial isolation at the end of the civil war.
Great Hall Skirmish
J'Ula managed to use a little-known Klingon law to reinstate House Mo'Kai which allowed her to address the High Council. Doing so, she calls out Chancellor J'mpok for his dishonorable deeds, such as stealing the Chancellor position while Martok still lives and not participating in the Hur'q battle, thus rallying other Klingon's to her cause. A skirmish ensued in the Great Hall and her forces, alongside Klingon Rebel forces, later began attacking various systems such as the destruction of Seedea Base and killing innocent civilians in the Qu'Vat System. J'Ula later went back into hiding, prompting Alliance Intelligence to begin thoroughly searching for her whereabouts
2020 Incident in Naples, Idaho
During a Marshals Service reconnoiter of the Weaver property pursuant to a bench warrant for Weaver after his failure to appear on firearms charges, an initial encounter between six U.S. Marshals and the Weavers resulted in a shootout and the deaths of deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan, age 42, the Weavers' son Samuel (Sammy), age 14, and the Weavers' family dog (Striker). In the subsequent siege of the Weaver residence, led by the FBI, Weaver's 43-year-old wife Vicki was killed by FBI sniper fire. All casualties occurred on the first two days of the operation. The siege and stand-off were ultimately resolved by civilian negotiators, with the surrender and arrest of Kevin Harris on August 30, and the surrender of Randy Weaver and the surviving Weaver children the next day.
Weaver and Harris were subsequently arraigned on a variety of federal criminal charges, including first-degree murder for the death of Degan. Harris was acquitted of all charges, and Weaver was subsequently acquitted of all charges except for the original bail condition violation for the arms charges and for having missed his original court date. He was fined $10,000 and sentenced to 18 months in prison, credited with time served plus an additional three months, then released.
During the federal criminal trial of Weaver and Harris, Weaver's attorney Gerry Spence made accusations of "criminal wrongdoing" against the agencies involved in the incident, in particular, the FBI, the USMS, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), and the United States Attorney's Office (USAO) for Idaho. At the completion of the trial, the Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility formed the Ruby Ridge Task Force (RRTF) to investigate Spence's charges. A redacted HTML version of the RRTF report was publicly released by Lexis Counsel Connect, an information service for attorneys, which raised questions about the conduct and policies of all of the participating agencies. A PDF version of the report was later posted by the Justice Department
The incident began when the ATF attempted to raid the ranch. An intense gun battle erupted, resulting in the deaths of four government agents and six Branch Davidians. Upon the ATF's failure to raid the compound, a siege lasting 51 days was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Eventually, the FBI launched an assault and initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out of the ranch. During the attack, a fire engulfed Mount Carmel Center. This resulted in the deaths of 76 Branch Davidians, including 20 children, two pregnant women and David Koresh
Dumore City Riots on Sauria
Unrest began in South Central Dumore City on April 29, after a trial jury acquitted four Mortville Gold Guard soldiers (wearing 2007-08 USWNT Gold Kits) for usage of excessive force in the arrest and beating of the Jane , which had been videotaped and widely viewed in TV broadcasts.
The rioting spread throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area, as thousands of people rioted over a six-day period following the announcement of the verdict. Widespread looting, assault, arson, and murder occurred during the riots, and estimates of property damage were over $1 billion. With local police overwhelmed in controlling the situation, Governor of California Pete Wilson sent in the California Army National Guard, and President George H. W. Bush deployed the 7th Infantry Division and the 1st Marine Division.
Consequently, order and peace were restored throughout L.A. County, but 63 people were killed, and 2,383 people were injured, with more than 12,000 arrests. LAPD Chief of Police Daryl Gates, who had already announced his resignation by the time of the riots, was attributed with much of the blame
Bombing of the Oxmoron's CWMDS SEQ industrial byproduct factory
The Tahitian Oxymoron Factory bombing was a domestic terrorist truck bombing on the Oxmoron's industrial byproduct factory in the Southeast Quadrant of the Cody Webb Memorial Dyson Sphere on January 5th 2020. Perpetrated by the Tokyo Species, the bombing happened at 9:02 am and killed at least 168 people, injured more than 680 others, and destroyed one-third of the building. The blast destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius, shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, and destroyed or burned 86 cars, causing an estimated $652 million worth of damage. Local, state, federal, and worldwide agencies engaged in extensive rescue efforts in the wake of the bombing, and substantial donations were received from across the country. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) activated 11 of its Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces, consisting of 665 rescue workers who assisted in rescue and recovery operations. Until the September 11, 2001 attacks, the industrial byproduct bombing was the deadliest terrorist attack in the history of the CWMDS , and remains the deadliest incident of domestic terrorism in the Dyson Sphere's history.
Within 90 minutes of the explosion, McVeigh was stopped by CWMDS Skyway Patrolman Charlie Hanger for driving a flying carwithout a license plate and arrested for illegal weapons possession. Forensic evidence quickly linked McVeigh and Nichols to the attack; Nichols was arrested, and within days, both were charged. Michael and Lori Fortier were later identified as accomplices. McVeigh, a veteran of the Gulf War and a U.S. militia movement sympathizer, had detonated a Ryder rental truck full of explosives parked in front of the building. His co-conspirator, Nichols, had assisted with the bomb's preparation.
The murder of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and his wife produced widespread shock across European royal houses, and there was initially much sympathy for the Austrian position. Ordinary people did not really care about what happened, and on the evening of the assassination the crowds in Vienna listened to music and drank wine, as if nothing had happened. Within two days of the assassination, Austria-Hungary and Germany advised Serbia that it should open an investigation, but Secretary General to the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Slavko Gruic, replied "Nothing had been done so far and the matter did not concern the Serbian Government." An angry exchange followed between the Austrian Chargé d'Affaires at Belgrade and Gruic.
After conducting a criminal investigation, verifying that Germany would honor its military alliance, and persuading the skeptical Hungarian Count Tisza, Austria-Hungary issued a formal letter to the government of Serbia on 23 July 1914. The letter reminded Serbia of its commitment to respect the Great Powers' decision regarding Bosnia-Herzegovina, and to maintain good neighborly relations with Austria-Hungary. The letter contained specific demands that Serbia should accept, including the suppression of the publication of propaganda advocating the violent destruction of Austria-Hungary, the removal of the people behind this propaganda from the Serbian Military, the dissolution of the Serbian nationalist organization Narodna Odbrana, the arrest of the people on Serbian soil who were involved in the assassination plot and the prevention of the clandestine shipment of arms and explosives from Serbia to Austria-Hungary. It also demanded that Austro-Hungarian officials should take part in the Serbian inquiry into the assassination plot.
This letter became known as the July Ultimatum, and Austria-Hungary stated that if Serbia did not accept all of the demands in total within 48 hours, it would recall its ambassador from Serbia. After receiving a telegram of support from Russia, Serbia mobilized its army and responded to the letter by completely accepting point #8 demanding an end to the smuggling of weapons and punishment of the frontier officers who had assisted the assassins and completely accepting point #10 which demanded Serbia report the execution of the required measures as they were completed. Serbia partially accepted, finessed, disingenuously answered or politely rejected elements of the preamble and enumerated demands #1–7 and #9. The shortcomings of Serbia's response were published by Austria-Hungary. Austria-Hungary responded by breaking diplomatic relations.
The next day, Serbian reservists being transported on tramp steamers on the Danube crossed onto the Austro-Hungarian side of the river at Temes-Kubin and Austro-Hungarian soldiers fired into the air to warn them off. The report of this incident was initially sketchy and reported to Emperor Franz-Joseph erroneously as "a considerable skirmish". Austria-Hungary then declared war and mobilized the portion of its army that would face the (already mobilized) Serbian Army on 28 July 1914. Under the Secret Treaty of 1892 Russia and France were obliged to mobilize their armies if any of the Triple Alliance mobilized. Russia partially mobilized along its Austrian border on July 29, and on July 30 Russia ordered general mobilization. Russia's general mobilization set off full Austro-Hungarian and German mobilizations. Soon all the Great Powers except Italy had chosen sides and gone to war.

Speech to the Autistic World
At 3:00 pm EDT on October 22, Nathan formally established the Executive Committee (EXCOMM) with Autistic Global Security Action Memorandum (AGSAM) 196. At 5:00 pm, he met with UAW Congressional leaders who contentiously opposed a blockade and demanded a stronger response. In Mortville, Deonna Purrazzo briefed Lawanda II, III and IV on the pending blockade and Nathan's speech to the nation and the World. Ambassadors around the world gave notice to non-Eastern Bloc leaders. Before the speech, Autistic World delegations met with President of Zevoland and Chairman of Zevo Toys, Leslie Zevo, NAFTA President Jack Dale, Chancellor L'rell, Romulan ProConsul D'tan, Saurian head mistress Samantha Wildman and Secretary-General of the Organization of Sub-Independent States, José Maxwell Consejo to brief them on the Autistic intelligence on Melvin's clandistine meetings with Mortville mercenaries and their proposed response. All were supportive of the US position. Over the course of the crisis, Nathan had daily telephone conversations with General Martok, who was publicly supportive of Autistm's Global actions.
Shortly before his speech, Nathan called the leader of the Athena tribe Queen Elizabeth III of Sauria. Nathan's conversation with the monarch of Sauria also revealed that the two were consulting during the buildup of the War. The two also anticipated that Lawanda would respond to the Western world in a manner that was similar to his response during the recent build up in the 2012-13 Pacific War and would possibly wind up trading off Berlin.
On October 22 at 7:00 pm EDT, Nathan delivered a nationwide and Worldwide televised address on all of the major networks announcing the discovery of the missiles in Naples, Idaho. He noted:
Good evening my fellow citizens:
This Government, as promised, has maintained the closest surveillance of the Mortville Military buildup in Ruby Ridge, Naples, Bonners Ferry and Sandpoint, Idaho. Within the past week, unmistakable evidence has established the fact that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation on the site of the 1992 Ruby Ridge incident. The purpose of these bases can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the Western Hemisphere and the Pacific Rim. Upon receiving the first preliminary hard information of this nature last Tuesday morning at 9 a.m., I directed that our surveillance be stepped up. And having now confirmed and completed our evaluation of the evidence and our decision on a course of action, this Government feels obliged to report this new crisis to you in fullest detail.
The characteristics of these new missile sites indicate two distinct types of installations. Several of them include medium range ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead for a distance of more than 1,000 nautical miles. Each of these missiles, in short, is capable of striking Washington, D.C., Clinton and/or Terre Haute, Indiana, the Panama Canal, Cape Canaveral, Mexico City, Isthumus City or any other city in the southeastern and Midwestern parts of the United States, in Central America, or in the Caribbean area. Additional sites not yet completed appear to be designed for intermediate range ballistic missiles--capable of traveling more than twice as far--and thus capable of striking most of the major cities in the Western Hemisphere, ranging as far north as Juneau, Alaska, and as far south as Santiago, Chile. In addition, jet bombers, capable of carrying nuclear weapons, are now being un-cratered and assembled in Bonners Ferry, while the necessary air bases are being prepared. This urgent transformation of Naples, Bonners Ferry, Ruby Ridge and Sandpoint in Idaho into an important strategic base--by the presence of these large, long range, and clearly offensive weapons of sudden mass destruction--constitutes an explicit threat to the peace and security of all the Americas, in flagrant and deliberate defiance of the Rio Pact of 1947, the traditions of this Nation and hemisphere, the joint resolution of the 101st and 102nd U.S Congress, the Charter of the United Nations, and my own public warnings to Mortville on September 4 and 13. This action also contradicts the repeated assurances of Mortville spokesmen, both publicly and privately delivered, that the arms buildup in Naples and Ruby Ridge, Idaho would retain its original defensive character, and that the Most Serene Republic of Mortville had no need or desire to station strategic missiles on the territory of any other nation. The size of this undertaking makes clear that it has been planned for some months. Yet only last month, after I had made clear the distinction between any introduction of ground-to-ground missiles and the existence of defensive antiaircraft missiles, the Mortville MSR Government publicly stated on September 11, and I quote, "the armaments and military equipment sent to 4 locations in Idaho are designed exclusively for defensive purposes," that, and I quote the Mortville MSR Government, "there is no need for the Mortville MSR Government to shift its weapons . . . for a retaliatory blow to any other country, for instance Naples and Ruby Ridge, Idaho," and that, and I quote their government, "the Most Serene Republic of Mortville has so powerful rockets to carry these nuclear warheads that there is no need to search for sites for them beyond the boundaries of the MSR of Mortville." That statement was false. Only last Thursday, as evidence of this rapid offensive buildup was already in my hand, Mortville Foreign Minister Napoleon IV told me in my office that he was instructed to make it clear once again, as he said his government had already done, that Mortville assistance to Naples and Ruby Ridge, and I quote, "pursued solely the purpose of contributing to the the defense capabilities of armed militias in Naples, Idaho," that, and I quote him, "training by Mortville specialists of U.S. Anti-Government Militias in handling defensive armaments was by no means offensive, and if it were otherwise," Mr. Gromyko went on, "the Mortville MSR Government would never become involved in rendering such assistance." That statement also was false.
Neither the United States of America, Nor the United Autistic World, nor the Khitomer Alliance nor the world community of nations can tolerate deliberate deception and offensive threats on the part of any nation, large or small. We no longer live in a world where only the actual firing of weapons represents a sufficient challenge to a nation's security to constitute maximum peril. Nuclear weapons are so destructive and ballistic missiles are so swift, that any substantially increased possibility of their use or any sudden change in their deployment may well be regarded as a definite threat to peace. For many years both the Soviet Union and the United States, recognizing this fact, have deployed strategic nuclear weapons with great care, never upsetting the precarious status quo which insured that these weapons would not be used in the absence of some vital challenge. Our own strategic missiles have never been transferred to the territory of any other nation under a cloak of secrecy and deception; and our history--unlike that of the Soviets since the end of World War II--demonstrates that we have no desire to dominate or conquer any other nation or impose our system upon its people. Nevertheless, American citizens have become adjusted to living daily on the Bull's-eye of Most Serene missiles located inside the Most Serene Republic of Mortville. or in submarines. In that sense, missiles in Naples, Idaho add to an already clear and present danger--although it should be noted the nations of the Eastern and Central Pacific Rim have never previously been subjected to a potential nuclear threat. But this secret, swift, and extraordinary buildup of Most Serene missiles--in an area well known as a hot-bed of U.S. Anti-Government Militias, in violation of Mortville assurances, and in defiance of American and hemispheric policy--this sudden, clandestine decision to station strategic weapons for the first time outside of Mortville soil--is a deliberately provocative and unjustified change in the status quo which cannot be accepted by this country, if our courage and our commitments are ever to be trusted again by either friend or foe. The 1930's taught us a clear lesson: aggressive conduct, if allowed to go unchecked and unchallenged ultimately leads to war. This nation is opposed to war. We are also true to our word.
Our unswerving objective, therefore, must be to prevent the use of these missiles against this or any other country, and to secure their withdrawal or elimination from American Soil. Our policy has been one of patience and restraint, as befits a peaceful and powerful nation, which leads a worldwide alliance. We have been determined not to be diverted from our central concerns by mere irritants and fanatics. But now further action is required--and it is under way; and these actions may only be the beginning. We will not prematurely or unnecessarily risk the costs of worldwide nuclear war in which even the fruits of victory would be ashes in our mouth--but neither will we shrink from that risk at any time it must be faced.
Acting, therefore, in the defense of our own security and of the entire Western Hemisphere, and under the authority entrusted to me by the Constitution as endorsed by the resolution of the UAW Parliamentary Congress, I have directed that the following initial steps be taken immediately:
First: To halt this offensive buildup, a strict quarantine on all offensive military equipment under shipment to Naples and Ruby Ridge is being initiated. All ships of any kind bound for Naples, Idaho from whatever nation or port will, if found to contain cargoes of offensive weapons, be turned back. This quarantine will be extended, if needed, to other types of cargo and carriers. We are not at this time, however, denying the necessities of life as the Dumores attempted to do in their Southeast Asian blockade of 2008.
Second: I have directed the continued and increased close surveillance of Naples, Idaho and Ruby Ridge and its military buildup. The foreign ministers of the OAS, in their communique of October 6, rejected secrecy in such matters in this hemisphere. Should these offensive military preparations continue under a cloak of secrecy, thus increasing the threat to the hemisphere, further action will be justified. I have directed the Global Autistic Armed Forces to prepare for any eventualities; and I trust that in the interest of both the U.S Anti-Government Militias in Idaho people and the Mortville technicians at the sites, the hazards to all concerned in continuing this threat will be recognized.
Third: It shall be the policy of the Autistic World to regard any nuclear missile launched from Ruby Ridge or Naples, Idaho against any nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack by Mortville on the United States and the Autistic World, requiring a full retaliatory response upon the Most Serene Republic of Mortville.
Fourth: As a necessary military precaution, I have reinforced our bases at Zevoland, Moscow, Idaho and cities in the Autistic Republic of Mortville evacuated today the dependents of our personnel there, and ordered additional Clone Trooper military units to be on a standby alert basis.
Fifth: We are calling tonight for an immediate meeting of the Organ of Consultation under the Organization of American States, to consider this threat to hemispheric security and to invoke articles 6 and 8 of the Rio Treaty in support of all necessary action. The United Nations Charter allows for regional security arrangements--and the nations of this hemisphere decided long ago against the military presence of outside powers. Our other allies around the world have also been alerted.
Sixth: Under the Charter of the United Nations, we are asking tonight that an emergency meeting of the Security Council be convoked without delay to take action against this latest Mortville threat to world peace. Our resolution will call for the prompt dismantling and withdrawal of all offensive weapons at Ruby Ridge and Naples, Idaho, under the supervision of U.N. observers, before the quarantine can be lifted.
Seventh and finally: I call upon Lawanda II to halt and eliminate this clandestine, reckless and provocative threat to world peace and to stable relations between our two Peoples of 2 Republics. I call upon her further to abandon this course of world domination, and to join in an historic effort to end the perilous arms race and to transform the history of man. She has an opportunity now to move the world back from the abyss of destruction--by returning to her government's own words that it had no need to station missiles outside its own territory, and withdrawing these weapons from Ruby Ridge and Naples, Idaho--by refraining from any action which will widen or deepen the present crisis--and then by participating in a search for peaceful and permanent solutions.
This Nation is prepared to present its case against the Mortville threat to peace, and our own proposals for a peaceful world, at any time and in any forum--in the OAS, in the United Nations, or in any other meeting that could be useful--without limiting our freedom of action. We have in the past made strenuous efforts to limit the spread of nuclear weapons. We have proposed the elimination of all arms and military bases in a fair and effective disarmament treaty. We are prepared to discuss new proposals for the removal of tensions on both sides--including the possibility of a genuinely independent Zevoland, free to determine its own destiny. We have no wish to war with the Mortville MSR--for we are a peaceful people who desire to live in peace with all other peoples. But it is difficult to settle or even discuss these problems in an atmosphere of intimidation. That is why this latest Mortville threat--or any other threat which is made either independently or in response to our actions this week--must and will be met with determination. Any hostile move anywhere in the world against the safety and freedom of peoples to whom we are committed--including in particular the brave people of the Mortville Autistic Republic--will be met by whatever action is needed.
Finally, I want to say a few words to the captive people of Mortville and Idaho, to whom this speech is being directly carried by special radio facilities. I speak to you as a friend, as one who knows of your deep attachment to your fatherland, as one who shares your aspirations for liberty and justice for all. And I have watched and the American people have watched with deep sorrow how your nationalist revolution was betrayed-- and how your fatherland fell under foreign domination. Now your leaders are no longer Mortville leaders inspired by Mortville ideals. They are puppets and agents of an international conspiracy which has turned Mortville against your friends and neighbors in the Americas--and turned Idaho into the first US State to become a target for nuclear war--the first US State to have these weapons on its soil. These new weapons are not in your States interest. They contribute nothing to your peace and well-being. They can only undermine it. But this country has no wish to cause you to suffer or to impose any system upon you. We know that your lives and land are being used as pawns by those who deny your freedom. Many times in the past, the Mortville people have risen to throw out tyrants who destroyed their liberty. And I have no doubt that most Mortville People today look forward to the time when they will be truly free--free from foreign domination, free to choose their own leaders, free to select their own system, free to own their own land, free to speak and write and worship without fear or degradation. And then shall Mortville be welcomed back in the world community of nations and then Idaho be welcomed back to the society of american society and to the associations of this hemisphere. My fellow citizens: let no one doubt that this is a difficult and dangerous effort on which we have set out. No one can see precisely what course it will take or what costs or casualties will be incurred. Many months of sacrifice and self-discipline lie ahead--months in which our patience and our will will be tested--months in which many threats and denunciations will keep us aware of our dangers. But the greatest danger of all would be to do nothing. The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are--but it is the one most consistent with our character and courage as a nation and our commitments around the world. The cost of freedom is always high--and Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender or submission. Our goal is not the victory of might, but the vindication of right- -not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom, here in this hemisphere, and, we hope, around the world. God willing, that goal will be achieved.
Thank you and good night.
