    BREAKING NEWS. The Social Democracy of New-Zealand has fallen to the Eurasian Empire with reports that President Cranson gave an executive order for NZDF forces to stand down and withdraw from key strategic locations, including the crucial Marsden line. The shocking executive order came mere hours after Cranson managed to effectively disband Congress after the house voted in favour of his controversial motion for temporary emergency executive power for the duration of the war, giving him practically dictatorial control of the nation. While many NZDF commanders and their forces refused to carry out the order, committing mutiny as a result, the infighting and confusion was timed, suspiciously so, with a massive Eurasian offensive attack with accuracy that could only be achieved with inside knowledge of the NZDFs strategic plans and classified information. Within hours the Eurasian forces managed to storm into Grand Haven (pictured above) and capture both Capitol Hill and Premier House. Congressional members have since been taken into custody and Eurasian forces are now reportedly spreading propaganda within New-Zealand claiming Cranson has officially signed a document of unconditional surrender to the Eurasian Empire. 

    We have since tried to contact several New-Zealand reporters and news outlets for further information but all were unable to be reached, suggesting that the occupying forces may have shut down the media and all flow of information out of New-Zealand for the time being. It is likely that we will hear an official victory statement from the Eurasian administration. While the Social Democracy may have fallen it is understood that the remaining OMNI nations are attempting an evacuation of key diplomatic personnel and may in fact make a play to secure some of New-Zealand, perhaps the population dense north, in an effort to block the advance of the Eurasian forces.

    ARVEYRANS SET UP IN IVY CITY ONCE AGAIN

    La Capra, IBARRA == As the National Government still has ceased to function and with the effective surrender of the Government of New Zealand to the Empire of Eurasia, provincial militia and police forces along the southern border of Arveyres with New Zealand have moved swiftly into the District of Magnolia, an Arveyran-speaking former Protectorate of the Kingdom of Arveyres. The provincial forces have been met with little to no resistance, primarily small family farms being initially resistant to Arveyran occupation. As the neutral peacekeeping force establishes its presence throughout the District, it will move to secure the borders with the Empire of Eurasia and the Northern Lobe of New Zealand, currently a stateless territory. As the Arveyran provinces of Salamanca and Malaga fear the rise of warlords in the Northern Lobe, it is vital for Arveyran national security that the Magnoline District is closely guarded.

    Cadiz, ALHAMBRA == As protests grow larger throughout the country over the lack of a Government, provincial leaders have grown restless over the fear of the rise of anarchy throughout the nation and have moved to mobilize their own governments to take greater swaths of power away from the National Government. The Prime Minister of Alhambra, speaking from the provincial capital of Cadiz in a public broadcast at the Senator's Plaza said "we are Arveyrans first, we are a nation, and the White Hats (a term referring to the white shawls worn over a MP's head during the Opening of the Senate) have no place in our provincial politics. I value our province too much to let us be controlled by Calabasas; I appeal to the Queen and to the Emperor to return the power to the provinces."

    ALOIA == In her first public broadcast since her departure from the Kingdom, Queen Sofia X, broadcasting from an unknown location in the Kingdom of Aloia has for the first time publicly denounced the Empire of Eurasia, referring to the Imperial Armed Forces specifically as a "band of warmongering headless horsemen". The 47-minute speech which was made in lack of a National Government is the first official declaration of the nation's stance in the Eurasian Invasion of New Zealand. Sofia did not comment on the provincial delegation of power as proposed by the PM of Alhambra.

    "Haven may have fallen, but we're not done yet!"
    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 Crying-statue-of-liberty

    As conclusive reports finally pour in from New-Zealand confirming that Grand Haven and much of New-Zealand have fallen to an internal betrayal and large scale Eurasian offensive. At the heart of this was former President Richard Cranson, a man trusted by the Social Democracy and all her millions to protect and serve the righteous and glorious institution forged in the fires of history. The home of the free. High Potentate Cranson, as he's referred to now, ruler of the Military Governorate of Zealandia, stole dictatorial power in a dastardly political move almost straight out of a Hollywood movie. Unfortunately for New-Zealand however, this isn't a movie, and now millions of civilians find them trapped under the rule of an authoritarian military governance, lost and afraid, their home and country now no more. Hope however burns on with the embers of the smouldering eternal republic seeking refuge in the northern districts, with OMNI forces pouncing quickly in with almost panicked speed in an attempt to outmanoeuvre the charging Eurasian forces. While Haven may have fallen, the spirit of New-Zealand lives on in the free states of the north, where talk has been spreading of a continuity of the government, or at least some semblance of it. Whats come as a surprising move however is the sudden decision of Arveyres to move into the north-eastern district, particularly Magnolia, following the fall of Haven. Met with little resistance from the locals, many of whom still view Arveyres as a friend and consider Arveyres protection almost from the advancing Eurasian behemoth, even though Arveyres is a dominion of the aforementioned empire. The loyalist NZDF forces who were fortunate enough to retreat safely, have also congregated in the northern districts, or rather the free states, in an effort to regroup and protect the remaining 240 million odd free citizens of New-Zealand. Refugees fleeing the captured districts have also flooded into the free states, running into the welcoming arms of the shaken OMNI forces, seeking refuge in the last holdouts of the Social Democracy. The world still holds its breath in shock at the fall of one of its four superpowers, one of its four pillars of modern civilisation. A collapse that was always seen as impossible, unthinkable, but plausible, has plunged us into the darkest of days yet. 

    "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts. If you're going through hell, keep going." - The Honourable Jacob Savage, First Premier of New-Zealand.

    OMNI FORCES LAUNCH DEVASTATING COUNTER-OFFENSIVE IN NORTH NZ

    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 2cf4pjt
    A Tarajani MBT-34 Altay participating to "Backfire".

    New-Zealand.
    The news of President Cranson's surrender, and of the consequent fall of Grand Haven to Eurasian forces, has had the result of a shocking wave throughout the members of the OMNI. Needless to say, the effect was particularly felt in New Tarajan: with the political situation apparently stabilized after the Astana mass insurrection of last week, there was hope that war would eventually subsume, somehow. Clealry, such an hope was misplaced.
    However, this clearly did not mean that the response wouldn't be swift.
    Holding an emergency press conference at his new residence in Charbagh Palace, Grand Pensionary and Supreme Marshal Duke Leopold Conrad Van Vinkel announced that "OMNI will not tolerate the fall of New-Zealand into Eurasian hands. President Cranson has betrayed the tryst of hundreds of millions of NZ citizens. We will not do the same."
    Thus, the Duke called "for all those New-Zealand forces still loyal to their own country" to join OMNI in the north, participating in a counter-offensive aimed at "neutralizing the Eurasian advance and protect millions of innocent citizens."
    Two hours later, the operation was already unfolding, with OMNI forces launching the most massive counter-attack in the whole war, and perhaps in history: a combined effort of all member States, with massive deployment of armoured and mechanized divisions, together with artillery and air support (particularly by the KTL, which has deployed its best and most modern aircrafts for the fight, ensuring almost total air superiority over the area of operations), and even naval and amphibious support.
    The aim: to repel Eurasian forces advancing north, to establish a solid line of defense, and to protect all those citizens fleeing from the occupied territories.
    Codename "Backfire", this massive counter-offensive is not only a military operation, but a clear, unmistakable, political statement: despite a failed attempt at overthrowing the Monarchy, New Tarajan has no intention to accept the fall of New-Zealand as a fait-accompli, nor has OMNI any intention to withdraw from the Social Democracy. If someone could have thought that the fall of Grand Haven would have meant that the war was won for Eurasia, he was terribly wrong.
    Moreover, rumors are spreading about a possible involvement of the Eurasian Ministry of the Realm in the recent insurrection. Duke Leopold Conrad himself admitted that "there are serious evidences pointing toward Eurasian help for the insurgents" and that he can see "the hand of the Ministry of the Realm behind this despicable attack against the true core of Tarajani civilization. However, I am afraid that they blatantly failed." Words that were more than enough to inflame the spirits of many Tarajani.

    NT announces support for Queen Sofia and Arveyran forces

    During the press conference, Duke Leopold Conrad also announced the Tarajani position regarding Arveyres: "His Majesty's Government and the whole country stand firmly at the side of Queen Sofia, rightful ruler of Arveyres, and the Arveyran citizens." he said.
    The Grand Pensionary and Supreme Marshal declared that "we offer all our support to Queen Sofia to protect her country against Eurasian oppression, being it political or military" also extending an invitation to her to visit New Tarajan once again.
    In the meanwhile, reports seem to confirm that Tarajani forces desptached to the area have not interfered with the Arveyran military units occupying the NZ District of Magnolia.

    Plots, true or false, are necessary things,
    To raise up commonwealths and ruin kings.
    New Zealand falls to Imperial onslaught; Aloian defenses faltering to massive Imperial offensive; His Imperial Majesty addresses Arveyran Queen's statements.

    Legate Julius Valerius Alexander Polemius

    The Imperial war machine finally succeeded where it failed two decades ago. New Zealand, at long last, has fallen to Eurasian martial might. Former President Cranson offered the final, unconditional surrender of the country yesterday evening to Legate Julius Valerius Alexander Polemius, commander of the central legionary group which seized the capital of Grand Haven. In a shocking twist, Cranson was in league with the Ministry of the Realm since the beginning of the war. He has been named High Potentate of the Military Governorate of Hibernia, the Eurasian name for New Zealand.

    Cranson's control of the country, however, is not total. The Imperial Military still controls much of the country, and is taking orders from Julium.  Moreover, the north of the country is still controlled by coalition forces, who are likely to declare a government in-exile. The Legions appear, for the time, to be unable or unwilling to pierce into the north. It has been reported that they are fortifying and strengthening their holdings in the south. It is unknown if they will attempt to mount further offensives or if Imperial attention will now be focused on the invasion of Aloia.

    By a 4/5 majority, the Senate declared and His Imperial Majesty accepted the creation of the Superior Province of Hibernia, which has yet to be subdivided into provinces. An anonymous Proconsul voiced concern however, saying, "I hope we take a positive approach to make Hibernia a productive part of our Empire." However, an anonymous official in the Ministry of War was more cynical. "We're taking too harsh an approach. We could have another Genevevia but I fear we're creating an Ostium[,]" referring to the successful conquest of the mostly-Celtic Superior Province of Genevevia, which was happily assimilated into the Empire, and the Province of Ostium, the remnants of the Second Partition of Newellia which is frequently cited for human rights abuses.

    Meanwhile, to the north of New Zealand, the Imperial Military launched fresh offensives into Aloia, with land invasions striking northern Aloia from the straights between it and the Province of Ostium. The Air Force and Fleets launched intense bombing campaigns against Aloian fortifications and position. Strikes were also launched against civilian targets, with bridges, power plants, and government buildings struck. The Legions have not released casualty figures, but it has been estimated that upwards of 62,000 have died on both sides.

    The Ministry of Imperial Relations also released a brief statement, which stated, "His Imperial Majesty, Emperor of Eurasia, Magistrate of Granada, and Divine Palatine of Arveyres affirms the Superior Province of Arveyres as an integral and autonomous part of the Eurasian Empire. His Imperial Majesty also affirms that since 1367 the Cephorean Reforms and the Writs of the Sertertiamillenniary forbid any attempt at secession as illegal and treasonous, and that His Imperial Majesty is committed to the maintenance of all parts of the Empire by any means necessary. Vivat Eurasia, Vivat Imperium."

    Pontifex Maximus Inferior addresses the Empire on the war.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 SLWwVYY
    His Sanctity donned a cross in an ancient form of mockery of Christianity.

    Editor's note: The following is a faithful reprinting of the His Sanctity the Pontifex Maximus Inferior's speech regarding the war. The office of His Sanctity requested that this publication reprint it and, faithfully and piously, we have complied.

    Blessings of the gods unto ye, my faithful.

    We are ever-mindful of the omnipresent power of the gods, and their influence upon our mortal world. They have seen fit to bless our sacred Empire with endless bounties, brimming full our coffers and chests with untold riches, using us as their instrument to raise untold multitudes from blind barbarity to civilized delights. From the beautiful shores of the Genevevian coasts to the pristine mountaintops of Audrinia, from the dense hinterland forests of Bruttium to the amorous vineyards of Civitius, to this ancient, holy city of Julium itself. Now, too, to the bucolic reaches of idyllic Hibernia, whose people will now be freed from the madness that for two-decades now has ensnared them.

    So too must ever we be mindful of the decrees of the gods. The divine truisms which guide our quotidian lives. Yet, of all of them, none is so important, so integral and essential to our Empire that it has been written on our monies for 2,000 years, so quintessential to our faith and our fidelity that it sits ever-present in a Eurasian's mind; the Emperor is the Law, the Law is Sacred. Imperator legem est, lex est sanctus. Since the first days of the Divine Julius, we have recognized this axiomatic truth. The Emperor is sacred. He is ordained by the gods and is the ultimate vessel of their limitless power. When the Emperor speaks, so too do the gods; when the Emperor commands, it has been ordained by divinity itself.

    His Imperial Majesty, Pious and Blessed, has commanded us to make war against the New Zealanders and the Aloians. The gods themselves have commanded us to make war. My faithful, thou shalt make haste! Strike at the enemies of our Empire, for they are the enemies of our Emperor, and therefore enemies of the gods! They are an affront to sacrosanctity itself! They are as demons raised forth from Hades itself, sworn enemies of all we hold dear, all we cherish and worship. Yet, my faithful, stand firm. For though our enemies crowd around us, we tread a blessed path.

    New Zealand has seen fit to bow before our righteous might and throw themselves at the gods' feet, begging for mercy. Yet the Aloians stand arrogantly firm, their prideful conceit an effrontery to our faith. They hold tight to their laughable god, begging for Christ's mercy as we burn their homes and raze their fields. My faithful, Mars cares not for the Aloian Christians and their one, weak god. They stand at the bulwarks facing the most fearsome and powerful martial force to ever exist on the face of Esamir. They can huddle in their fetid, idolatrous temples, praying to their weak, powerless little savior alone on his cross. We shall see how brave they are when nailed to their pitiful churches, their bodies facing outward so they may watch their world die.

    Editor's note: His Sanctity Pontifex Maximus Inferior Decius Romilius Benedictus Felix, Patrician of the House of Romilia, serves as the de facto Pontifex Maximus of Mos Maiorum at the behest of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Augustus IV.

    NEWS FROM THE FEDERATION

    Retaliation for a superior good

    "You know, propaganda is like a rabid dog. Get it a bones, it will attack someone else" said in his statement of the morning Enrique De Letta, representative of the Federal Government of Antanares. That was the first statement got directly from the government after the recent attack in the national soil operated from the forces of Eurasia. De Letta gave to the journalists in the room and, thank to the coverage of the event, to most of the antanaresian, a complete report on the attacks "Their attack was not very effective. Despite what they said and wrote about, mostly of the missiles were engaged from our defense batteries and the satellite network of DRAGON. Despite that, some missiles crushed on our territory, but the pre-alarm system gave the population sufficient time to evacuate from the targeted areas. Most of the victims are, in fact, security operators, medics, policemen. Brave men and women who died in name of duty and their nation" added the representative of the government.

    The attack of Eurasia was poor effectively against the more advanced "shield" of Antanares, based on a project of the '90, before OMNI creation, which protect the nation from all the direction. Linked directly with the national satellite's grid, the "shield", how is used to be named from the experts, is a combined defense of AA-missiles, battery, lasers, pre-alarm systems and very efficient radar, powered from reactors not linked with the civilian energetic grid and in the hand of the DRAGON Enforcer. Despite not been a perfect cover from all the possible attack, in this case the "shield" demonstrated widely how can be useful in stop enemy attack from distance.
    The Defensive Network, most of all, incorporate also an highly advanced cyber-guerrilla system, which is useful in attack the enemy drones incoming, shooting them down before even capable of arrive near the mainland, confuse incoming missiles and defend itself from incoming cyber-attack. Since its creation, no cyber-attack penetrated Antanares.

    Following the last week bombing, the forces of ARROW deployed not far from Eurasia started a new campaign of attack with a mixed system of drones, ships, airplanes and long-range missile batteries. Aiming to all the possible, the attack was in this case indiscriminately directed to the population and the military. A first bombing was directed to hospital, defense structures, bridges, main connection hub as stations and airport, than a second round started to hit civilian quarters, universities, schools and churches.

    "We will continue to hit" said De Letta in his statement of the morning "We will hit them again and again and more again. We will not give them the time to bury the bodies of their loved ones, they will not have the time to go to the church praying their false god, they will not have the time to think to the old days of peace, which they sacrificed in the altar of their ambitions. We will bomb them, with drones, planes, missiles. They will never see us arriving. We will strike and then strike again. Until the day in which they will just surrender".

    The forces of Antanares, moreover, joined the OMNI forces in their attacks against the eurasian positions. The enforcer of ARROW divisions deployed in NZ and Aloia joined the tarajani efforts in counter-attack the legions of Eurasia. The mechanized division, in combined operations with the air forces and the navy, advanced without fear, launching devastating assault to the enemy positions. Forces of the ARROW moved also in direction of Ostium, attacking any forces present and raiding the main infrastructures network of the area. The small task force "Pantera" seems to aim to disrupt the enemy lines, before returning to the main forces.

    Are they just apes?

    "They are inferior, that is clear" said professor John McLarian during the daily episode of "Antanares breakfast "They are inferior, it is in their genes. Our recent studies demonstrate that the population of Eurasia just doesn't reach the level of the others nations. They're incapable of an efficient free thinking, they are incapable of develop good arts, they are still bound to ancient myths and religions. Some of my colleagues will say that depends on the context, on their history, on their ruthless leadership. But are we sure about that? All the civilizations, at a certain point of their story, were in the position of Eurasia. Powerful, of course, but also extremely violent and retrograde in the literally term of the words. The problem is that we reached that point when the most powerful tool was a sword. Now we have WMD. They developed less fast than everyone else and I don't think its just the context. It is probably in their genes. As I said in my book, 'Son of different fathers', humans can be divided into different species. Eurasia is just one of the less developed"

    The position of the notorious expert of genetic encountered different fortune, both in the past years and now. Despite everything Eurasia did, a large group of academic doesn't concur with professor McLarian and so part of the population. A recently launched poll demonstrated how the 84% of the population just reject the idea of McLarian about the eurasian as a different kind of humans. Most of them, instead, accuse the leadership, both political and religious, of the enemy nation of be incapable, ambitious and ruthless, searching for a vain power and glory. The intervention of McLarian in the popular program was vastly criticized in the social networks. Mostly of the comments focused on how was possible that, in a national network, a professor of this kind was even invited.

    Despite that, there are supporters of McLarian all around the nations, that are strongly promoting the idea of the professor about the difference of the human specie in different sub-species. For those supporters, the war against Eurasia is not just a war of defense against an attack, but instead the opportunity to wipe out a sub-specie totally inferior to the others and are supporting the idea of use WMDs to end the conflict in the less time possible.

    Internal front

    Five officers of DRAGON enforcer and two of SAOIRSE were arrested last night with the accuse of high treason against the Federation. The seven were all executed before the rise of the sun, after a summary process. According to a note diffused from the secret services of the Federation, the seven felons were discovered having link with officers in Eurasia and in hostile country, passing information about the movement of the task forces of Antanares and about the weak point of the national defense grid. The seven were ready to consign another package of information to a spy, but the latter was apprehend three days ago and spoke out about the internal network of saboteurs. The security forces were able to set up a trap and capture one of the SAOIRSE agents involved in the infiltration and, thanks to a fast work of "persuasion", to find the other six.

    Members of Congress Executed Following Trial Without Jury
    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 High-castle-cp1-2
    High Potentate Cranson pictured leaving the Supreme Court


    Five hundred and thirty five. Thats the number of seats that fill the congress and the number of elected representatives of the Social Democracy of New-Zealand that spoke for their millions of constituents.  Of the 535, only 32 were lucky enough to escape Cranson's coup and escape to the free states of the north. As for the remainder, those who weren't a part of Cranson's coup were arrested by on suspicion of treason against the newly formed Governorate. Now 2 weeks later, without a jury and without access to legal defence, the 493 have been found guilty of their respective "crimes". Their punishments ranging from execution by firing squad down to 50 years imprisonment at a labour camp. Their true crime? Simply serving the Social Democracy of New-Zealand with honour, integrity and bravery. 



    The Free States of the North

    OMNI Peacekeeping Forces


    With around 70% of the NZ population subject to foreign occupation, the Free States of the North remain hopes last refuge for the once glorious republic. OMNI forces have now well and truly moved into the northern states and ground the Eurasian advance to a halt, allowing the the last free residents of New-Zealand to breath a sigh of relief. That said the Eurasian objective seems to have now moved away from New-Zealand with the Empire now looking at directing it's military machine towards the likes of other OMNI nations, probably seeing the free states of the north as a minimal threat at this point, and we can hardly blame them for it. After all, should Eurasia place enough offensive pressure on the other OMNI states, it's only a matter of time till they pull back their deployed peacekeepers to defend themselves, and leave the free states of the north powerless to withstand the Eurasian war machine.

    ARVEYRES BEGINS TO CRACK

    Calabasas, SEVILLA == A country without a Queen, a country without a Government, a people without guidance, that is the fate of the current situation in Arveyres. As all Senators have returned to their home jurisdictions, the peaceful protests throughout the capital city of Calabasas have turned into multiple violent riots. As rioters have taken to the streets, within the first three days an estimated £500 million in damages has been caused throughout the city, including the razing of the Central Temple of Mars in the San Marino Quarter of Calabasas, a well-frequented religious site for Arveyran Eurasians. An estimated 300,000 citizens throughout the city are thought to be active participants in the riots. In the current situation, the National Police has struggled greatly with containing the fighting. The Chief of Police of Sevilla and the Northern Provinces has reached out to the Imperial Military for additional support but does not expect much.

    St. Petersburg, ALOIA == As the Queen prepares to leave her refuge in Aloia for an undisclosed location in Western Arveyres, the Queen has invoked a lesser known portion of the National Code to dissolve the Senate and Cabinet of Ministers to take absolute power over the National Government. Her first matter of business was the immediate decentralization of the State, giving massive amounts of legislative and executive power to the provinces themselves. In an unprecedented power move, the likes of which have not been seen since the mid 1700s, the Provincial Praetors (Leaders) of most provinces have publicly announced their support for the Queen in the hopes of bringing an end to Eurasian rule in the Kingdom.

    Ivy City, OCCUPIED TERRITORIES == As the occupation of the District of Magnolia continues, the Provinces of Salamanca and Ibarra have announced political amnesty and asylum for stateless people living within the Northern Territories of New Zealand. In a move that went directly against the word of the Queen, to open the borders unconditionally, it is believed that this political move is the beginning of a domino effect of multiple secession movements within the Kingdom of Arveyres. As the Kingdom of Arveyres is three separate entities: the Kingdom of Almeria which comprises Imperial Territories (that is, territories that are under indirect control of the Empire of Eurasia), the Kingdom of the Navarras which are Arveyran territories fully independent of the Imperial Realm (that is, territories solely under the Arveyran Crown), and the Kingdom of Cordoba, which while independent falls within a personal union with Almeria and Navarra. It is unsure which provinces will next begin the process of secession attempts.

    OMNI CLAIMS VICTORY IN "BACKFIRE" SUCCESS
    Operations move forward as Northern Free States are secure

    NZ Front.
    OMNI Enforcer has announced its victory after Operation Backfire revealed to be a huge success.
    The Operation, aimed at launching a massive counter-offensive in order to stop Eurasian advance after the treacherous fall of Grand Haven into Imperial hands, was able to achieve all its strategic and tactical goals, in an impressive show of combined effort and cooperation between the various Member States and the loyalist forces of the NZDF.
    "The north of New-Zealand can finally sigh in relief" Supreme Marshal and Grand Pensionary, Duke Leopold Conrad Van Vinkel, announced this morning during a press conference from the Ring, OMNI HQ: "We have halted any Eurasian move into the north, and finally stabilized the frontlines. This counter-offensive have shown what the true power of OMNI Enforcer is."
    While the situation in New-Zealand is stabilizing, the war, of course, is not over yet. Operations against Eurasian forces are continuing on all fronts, and particularly on seas and on air. A combined Antanaresian-Tarajani fleet has launched a massive air-naval combined offensive from the Gold Coast into the Sevillan Straits. The aim of the operation is pretty clear: to cut-off any Eurasian attempt at moving against Aloia, at the same time definitely ensuring the protection of the NZ northern Free States. Though the fleet has been very careful into avoiding any kind of violation of Arveyran territorial waters, its presence has a strong symbolic value also regarding the political crisis which is engulfing the latter, particularly after the recent statements in favour of Queen Sofia coming from Astana.
    Other fleets, namely the 3rd and the 4th, are operating from Meisjegronden and Ienara against the easternmost coastal areas of Eurasia, strangling trade and local traffic, and occasionally attacking critical infrastructure and strategic targets.

    In the meanwhile, and despite the recent successes and victories, doubts are rising about what the goals of this war should actually be. With the blatant demonstration that the casus belli was fabricated by Cranson himself in a way to betray his own country, some are starting to believe there is little purpose in continuing the fight.
    With the States General temporarily suspended until the new Constitutional Committee will end its works, the doubts and dissatisfaction of Tarajani political world have been expressed during a few, brief, meetings of the Landsraad. A rival opinion claims that it is the moral duty of OMNI to ensure the liberation of whole New-Zealand, and this seems to be at the moment the position of the Tarajani government itself. However, the fact that no official declaration has been released yet is, in some way, a statement in itself.

    Behold a God more powerful than I who comes to rule over me.
    OMNI advance halted brutally; mass arrests reported in Hibernia.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 PmY5TC4

    The conquest of Hibernia, formerly known as New Zealand, has continued to vex the OMNI forces as the Empire cements its grip on the once-independent nation. Battle-hardened Imperial forces from across the Empire were redeployed to bolster the legionary positions against the OMNI counteroffensive, with the enemy forces successfully halted. The Hibernal province is now, for the time, split nearly-equally between north and south, with many Hibernians fleeing to the non-Imperial north. Massive bombing raids were launched against the civilian populations of the northern New Zealander territories, with the Hadean conflagrations from saturation firebombing in some cities being visible from space.

    The populace of the newly-formed Province of Hibernia, meanwhile, have been subject to surprise raids by the Ministry of the Realm. Former civil servants, many of whom had no connection to the previous, democratically elected government being arrested or shot outright. When asked for a comment, Legate Julius Valerius Alexander Polemius, commander of Imperial forces in Hibernia, declined to make a statement.

    Disparate reports, however, have shed a troubling light on the situation in the former Social Democracy. While unconfirmed, several of the Julium Times's corespondents have reported seeing violence between the forces of the Frumentarii and the Imperial Legions. Reports indicate that the Frumentarii are taking control of several key infrastructural areas of Hibernia without informing the local legionary commanders. This has reportedly led to violence between the two forces.

    There is a pleasure sure
    In being mad which none but madmen know.
    Aloian defenses crumble beneath blistering Imperial offensive; mass reprisals against Christians ordered.

    The besieged country of Aloia yet again has suffered another blow. Imperial forces struck a crucial blow to the Aloian defenders, dislodging them from their more southerly positions and pushing deep into the Aloian hinterlands. The addition of fresh, battle-hungry troops from across the Empire as well as from Hibernia have shattered the Aloian fortifications and defenses, pushing the enemy forces further back into their own lands. A mass, saturation bombing and artillery campaign, launched in the early morning hours of Sunday, finally abated late this evening. In its wake, hundreds of thousands of legionaries poured forth, overwhelming the Aloian positions and forcing the defenders from their battlements.

    In the wake of the devastating offensive, mass reprisals against Christians in Aloia have been reported. Churches have been ransacked and looted, and pastors and bishops have been summarily executed. It was reported in one small Aloian town that a local pastor was crucified inside his church and then burned alive as the church was set aflame. Despite mixed opinions from the citizenry of the Empire, the Imperial commanders appear indifferent to their soldiers actions against Aloian civilians. It has been further reported that the Ministry of Culture has dispatched the Penitus Oculatus into occupied Aloian territories to root out any Christian threat which is hostile to our Empire.

    NEW TARAJAN EXTENDS ASYLUM OFFER TO ALOIANS AS OMNI FORCES INCREASE EFFORTS

    Astana.
    With the Eurasian military back on the offensive, and particularly against Aloia, New Tarajan has no intention to look while a whole country is destroyed.
    In a special session this morning at Palace Van Geldern, the Landsraad (specifically called just to discuss the issue, in the general suspension of the legislative bodies of the Kingdom due to the pending constitutional process) has accepted the proposal, put forward by the King himself, "to extend asylum offer in Tarajani territory to all those Aloian citizens fleeing the Eurasian persecution". Surprising many, the proposal also explicitly mention Aloian Christians "unjustly persecuted", and calls for the Tarajani Lutherna Church (a branch of the Aloian Church) to join the royal authorities in the effort. A surprising move coming from a country where Christianity has not been welcome since the XVII century, but not so surprising when one recalls the attempts of King Friederick Wilhelm at a general religious peace last year. Also, the proposal was strongly supported by some of the most important and powerful Houses of eastern Tarajan, including House Van Ceytal, Van Moor, and Van Haasen, which means those Major Houses most strongly linked to their Aloian heritage.
    It is not coincidence that Duke Albrecht V Van Haasen has shown himself as one of the strongest advocate of the proposal during the meeting, stating to those journalists waiting outside the Palace: "We cannot turn a blind eye while our Aloian cousins are slaughtered."
    The Landsraad also called for renewed efforts by OMNI Enforcer against Eurasia.
    In a communiqué released in the afternoon, OMNI High Command declared its intention to strengthen "the grip strangling Eurasian economy and supplies" through its air and naval blockade, and to increase the attacks against strategic infrastructures, extending them even deeper inside imperial territory.
    OMNI forces in loco are also providing direct assistance to Aloians refugee, transporting them in safe havens while at the same time helping the Aloian military with every mean at their disposal.

    Both inside and outside the palaces of power, the Eurasian offensive in Aloia appears to have had a compacting effect on New Tarajan: while until few days ago the reasons for continuing the war were looking shaky, the news of the atrocities committed by the imperial forces in New-Zealand and Aloia had a deep impact on public opinion and the political world, with the result of giving a renewed confidence into Tarajani duty. As some slogans appearing around Astana these days say: "We are the stronghold against barbarism."
    It is hard to argue with that.

    Chrisjen Djako, Deputy Secretary-General of the District of Magnolia, Congresswoman for the Province of Sevillia, and 38th in the Presidential line of succession. A 48 year old mother of two with Arveyrean heritage, and a history of exemplary civil service. That's who leads the free states of the north and heads the crippled Social Democracy of New-Zealand. Some would see her as unfitting of the role, a weak leader, but in the months since the great collapse Djako has led the remnants of the Social Democracy with an unwavering resilience. For now she refuses the title of President, pledging to officially take the office only once Grand Haven and all the realms of the Social Democracy are liberated and back under the republic. With the NZDF now having regrouped and firm leadership returned to the Social Democracy, a counter attack could soon be in play. 

    Resistance Makes Charge Through Drackenburg
    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 The-future-of-the-future-of-amphibious-assault-1436587209.jpg?crop=1xw:0
    A large contingency of UKZ and NZDF forces have made a play for the contested far western district of Drakenburg, tipping the odds heavily in favour of the resistance forces and driving Hibernian forces into retreat. With Drakenburg seemingly destined for liberation, we could soon see a large scale two front offensive against Hibernia with amphibious divisions pushing in from the west and the sizeable OMNI force pushing south from the free states of the north. Should the NZ Navy manage to manage to maintain their naval dominance of the Zelandic Sea and begin pushing in towards the occupied ports we could see Hibernia being placed in an extremely difficult position, effectively fighting off 3 seperate offensive fronts. 

    Internal Eurasian Conflict? 
    Interesting reports are coming in from the occupied districts of apparent conflict between Eurasian legionaries and the largely Frumentarii Hibernian forces. Some legionaries it seems are becoming disillusioned with the Frumentarii methods, seeing them as needlessly cruel and inhumane. Even in the past Eurasian legionaries have been nothing short of honourable in conflict, taking steps to minimise civilian casualties wherever possible, firmly upholding Eurasian laws and professional conduct. Frumentarii on the other hand have frequently circumvented Eurasian laws, something that has caused significant attrition between the two forces. Since occupation Legionary forces have restored power, water and waste services that were disrupted by the takeover, established supply lines to keep the civilian populations sustained and with MPs being the current police force, enforced laws with fairness. Frumentarii on the other hand have apprehended all with significant roles in the federal government of the Social Democracy and executed them without trial. They've established a name for themselves in dawn raids, where black Frumentarii vehicles storm houses and apprehend people, almost all of whom are never seen again. The tension came to a head in Kelston (Swansea), when Frumentarii forces moved in to apprehend students at Fraiser College for defacing the regional Frumentarii office with paint bombs and throwing molotovs at parked Frumentarii vehicles. The Frumentarii forces moved in and sought to execute the entire high school cohort in a show of force to make an example for potential future "anarchists". The local Legionary brigade however sought to differ, stepping in to prevent the massacre of innocent civilian children, fearing large scale public unrest. This resulted in an open standoff at the school between Frumentarii and Legionary forces, with the tensions climaxing with shots fired and numerous casualties on both sides, though the legionary forces fared significantly better off then their counterparts, mostly due to sheer numbers.

    SHROVE TUESDAY STRIKES: UKZ LAUNCHES STRIKES AGAINST EURASIA

    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 TELEMMGLPICT000160365050_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqdODRziddS8JXpVz-XfUVR4AUi_eAXJmjTzXoJ-uDM54

    After what seemed like a long passive involvement in the war against Eurasia and its weak allies, the UKZ has taken a drastic step in apparent retaliation for the air strikes on Nicobar and Mumbai by the Eurasian air force last month. Using its well supplied military base in Drakenburg (now also being shared by other OMNI members) and the military bases of the UKZ in Godricland and Tasmania, the UKZ has launched an air strike against mainland Eurasia with the aim destroying important military targets like bases, factories and other basic infrastructure.

    This being called the Shrove Tuesday Strikes, because it was carried out Shrove Tuesday morning. Reports suggest that while the UKZ is aiming for primarily military targets, civilian targets will be in the line of fire and it is unknown if fighter pilots have been instructed to actively avoid civilian targets. The Irish air force has also participated in these strikes, after the Irish government volunteered their troops to the UKZ to partake in the war effort.

    Fighter Pilots will be gunning for Urbem Sol

    While Eurasian air strikes did not manage to many of the UKZ's major cities due to quick OMNI response, the Nicobar City in Andaman island bore the worst brunt with major damages to life and property and Mumbai's naval port suffered damages. Cair Paravel and Buckingham, the capitals of the UKZ were left untouched.

    Armed forces strategists claim that Eurasia's occupation of New Zealand was a strategic mistake as it has now brought all of the OMNI to Eurasia's doorstep. Before the occupation, the OMNI would not be likely to launch direct strikes against Eurasia but instead attack its colonies, and fight them on their home turf. With the OMNI now so close to Eurasia, it was only a matter of time the OMNI would invade, and the UKZ has taken that first step.

    COUP ATTEMPT DEFEATED

    While the UKZ is dealing with a war on foreign shores, the government was in for a rude shock, when armed men barged into the Prime Minister's Office and attempted to enter the Provost's Palace as well. A tank rode up King's Road and rammed into the gates of the Provost's Palace. While this was very quickly subdued by the military, the UKZ had just encountered a threat to its democracy. In what is now being called a Eurasian sponsored coup.

    Due to the war and the emergency, the information to the Press is limited. What the PMO is telling us is that a Eurasian sponsored group of mutinous soldiers attempted to topple the government. They were most liked funded by the frumentarii. The PMO has assured us that these men have been apprehended and after the war they will face a court martial for crimes against the union, the crown, murder and waging war against The UKZ. Crimes which still hold the death penalty by hanging.

    The PMO also said, "The UKZ is strong, our resolve unshakable, and our armed forces trustworthy"

    Reports of Legionnaires Standing Down

    The 1st Armoured Division stopped for a brief rest break while convoying south through the Great Basin Desert on SH29  


    As the large NZDF-OMNI force pushes in from the north and the NZDF-UKZ Drackenburg Offensive pushes in from the west, reports are coming in of Legionnaire divisions standing down and some retreating towards Tiberius, the easternmost district first to fall to Eurasia. The reports come in as a surprise to the advancing NZDF led forces, who had armed and prepared themselves for a gruelling war of attrition. With the majority of legionnaire forces out of the picture, particularly in the frontier districts closest to the advancing forces, the remaining Frumentarii forces have put up a formidable resistance, frequently outperforming expectations. That said resisting Hibernian divisions have systematically fallen one by one to the liberation forces, with assistance from home grown resistance militia forces. With the surprising change in legionnaire tactics, the tides of the war have well and truly turned, and we could see Grand Haven recaptured by the end of the year, putting an end to the 18 month long occupation. A huge win for Premier Chrisjen Djako who took the reigns of the battered free states following a shock upheaval and turned a crumbling alliance of battered and afraid districts into a formidable fighting force.

    BREAKING NEWS: POSSIBLE COUP ATTEMPT UNDERWAY IN JULIUM
    Confirmed reports of Frumentarii storming the Julian palace; Praetorian Guard and Police engaged in gun battles across Julium with Frumentarii; status of His Imperial Majesty unknown; Prime Minister of War attempts to reassure Empire.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 TVJBLVb

    BREAKING NEWS
    In a moment not seen in Eurasian history since the abdication of Laurentius III, confirmed reports indicate a possible coup attempt against His Imperial Majesty is underway in Julium and throughout the Empire. Armed forces from the Ministry of the Realm are reported to have seized key government buildings throughout Julium, possibly including the Julian Palace. The headquarters of the ministries of Economy, Agriculture, Energy, and Justice were seized, as were the headquarters of the bureaus of Investigation and Taxation. However, the Ministries of War, Police, and Environment remain in Imperial hands, as does the Ministry of Culture and the Penitus Occulatus.

    There has been no issuance of any sort of information on the part of the Frumentarii, but the Prime Minister of War, Proconsul Gaius Martius Julianus Preceptor, brother of His Imperial Majesty Augustus IV, released a statement on social media. In it, he stated that, "[t]he brave loyalist forces of the Empire are fighting to defeat this treacherous putsch. Have faith in the gods and we shall be seen through." It appears that legionary forces are fighting, alongside the Police and the Penitus Occulatus, the forces of the Frumentarii.

    UPDATE
    Reports from the Ministry of War indicate that Frumentarii forces have attempted to seize legionary command posts throughout the Empire, including fractured Hibernia. Several legates and their staffs have been summarily executed, and large gun battles are ongoing between legionary forces and their Frumentarii enemies. In Grand Haven, the legionary forces led by Legate Julius Valerius Alexander Polemius, are barricaded in the Government Building, besieged by Frumentarii forces, while the large numbers of surrounding legionaries fight to penetrate the city. It is unknown where High Potentate Cranson is, but one legionary tweeted that, "Cranson isn't here. That coward prick ran out when these assholes attacked us. Hope he got shot in the ass."

    The Imperial forces across the Empire, both in Hibernia and the other provinces, have also been attacked by Frumentarii forces. Some analysts have raised serious concerns over the nuclear status of the Empire, with the condition of the Strategic Rocket Legion unknown. The submarine forces are largely unaffected by the ongoing coup, with the Prime Minister of War ordering them out to sea the second the coup began.

    UPDATE
    Fighting in Julium is continuing. Reports from outside the Imperial Palace indicate an ongoing gun battle between the Praetorians and the Frumentarii, with the Police and Penitus Occulatus struggling to break into the Palace grounds. Citizens from the outskirts of the Capitoline Prefecture have reported to The Julium Times that legionary forces stationed around the Capitol have mustered and are inbound to retake the city. The world continues to hold its breath.

    NZDF Closing In On Grand Haven
    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 12cf2505f48e00ab79af4f84dc7b3


    In a surprising turn of events, the NZDF has rapidly closed in on Grand Haven with Frumentarii retreated in large quantities towards Grand Haven, where they are believed to have Legionnaire forces under siege. The NZDF-OMNI force from the north have made swift progress through the agriculture rich countryside of Mayfair, facing no significant resistance. The northern offensive, as they are now being referred to as, are now mere hours from the border with the district of Detroit, the last remaining Frumentarii, or Hibernian, stronghold outside of Haven. With NZ Navy forces amassing at large out in the Zelandic Sea, we expect the marines and amphibious divisions to launch a coastal reclamation mission on the industrial megacity of Steelport in time with the arrival of the large northern offensive force on the urban outskirts. 

    On the western front the NZDF-UKZ offensive have made exceptional time through the midwestern districts, having just crossed through into Clutha late this afternoon. Their charge has likewise been met with effectively no resistance due to the large scale Frumentarii fallback, and morale is running extremely high as citizens lined the borders of the commandeered interstates to cheer on their brave liberators with a fanfare the likes of which haven't been seen since Reclamation Day. To add salt to the wounds of Hibernia, the Navy's southern fleet making a surprise reappearance in the waters south of Ajania with 2 carrier attack groups spotted heading in towards the coast. They too have been seen in the company of a large amphibious force, indicating that the NZDF may launch a new southern offensive to push up into Haven soon. With OMNI and the northern offensive likely to be caught up recapturing Detroit, we expect to see the Western Offensive and potentially this rumoured Southern Offensive reach the borders of the Grand Haven Metropolitan Area within the next 48 hours. 


    Djako Rumoured To Be Leaving Maxwell
    Rumours are floating around the free states that the much loved leader Chrisjen Djako is supposedly leaving Maxwell, the interim capitol of the free states, to attend an undisclosed meeting. Rumours suggest this to be a peace talk of sorts but the specifics have been kept highly classified.

    OMNI PUSHES BACK EURASIAN INVADERS
    Advance on all fronts continues as attacks on Eurasian mainland intensifies

    Maxwell.
    This may be the last offensive of the war. At least, this is what transpires from the communiques of OMNI High Command and the rumors from the governments of the various member States as their forces launch a massive joint attack with the NZDF from both the north and the south of former New-Zealand with one, clear target: Grand Haven.
    With a coup d'état by the Frumentarii shaking the Eurasian Empire from its ground, and legionnaire forces in occupying New-Zealand surrendering one after the other, many are those who believe the former capital liberation is a question of days, if not hours.
    But the war is not over yet, and the fight continues, on all fronts. Including Eurasia itself: from the eastern coast, the Tarajani 3rd and 4th Fleets, already deployed to the here in the previous stages of the conflict for naval-based attacks and interdictions, have received orders to intensify their operations against the Eurasian mainland with a whole new series of air campaigns increasing the military pressure on that side of the Empire.
    Some analysts believe this may be just the preliminary stage for a full-scale amphibious operation against Eurasia, but there is no conclusive evidence for such a prediction, nor any comment at this regard has been released. The impression is more to exploit the chance offered by the coup to increase pressure on Eurasia to seek terms. However, there are also some who claim that, in fact, the orders sent by Astana to its forces in that theatre are somewhat ambiguous: indeed, while attacks against selected military targets (mainly naval and air bases) are to be increased, no mention has been made of key infrastructures or other strategic targets. Quite the contrary: attacks against this kind of targets have drastically decreased since the beginning of the coup.
    However, what this could mean, is hard to tell.
    Also, rumors claim that the Mahvash Alalaleh Zyhar, the flagship of the feared RHIELD skycarriers, previously deployed over Astana, has been re-deployed in support of the 3rd Fleet (Astana is now protected by the Kalihaan Shah, another skycarrier). If confirmed such a move would raise a whole new set of questions: why should RHIELD deploy its key asset on a secondary front in such a critical juncture? Why so close to Julium? Some seem to point toward a fear for the status of the Strategic Rocket Legion, the Eurasian strategic nuclear force. The state of uncertainty surrounding the Empire, indeed, is worrisome due to its nuclear capabilities, and it is reasonable to assume that the RHIELD is moving in order to neutralize any possible threat on this side.
    Of course, the Pasargade has not released any official statement on the issue, so there is nothing to do except to speculate.
    Duke Leopold Conrad Van Vinkel, Supreme Marshal of the Kingdom and ad interim Grand Pensionary, instead, in a press conference held at his official residence of Charbagh Palace, have stated that "it is His Majesty's and this government's strong belief that we are approaching the end of this bloody and terrible war, that already took too many lives". Refusing to comment directly about the Eurasian coup, the duke however said that "This war will end with a clear victory for the Alliance and the liberation of every single inch of New-Zealand territory. Nothing less will ever be accepted." A clear message to whoever could have thought that the internal difficulties of Eurasia could have led to a softening of the Tarajani position on the terms necessary to open serious peace talks.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 Eunib9

    New Tarajan condemns attempted Zack coup

    Duke Leopold Conrad also expressed a strong condemnation of the attempted coup in Zackalantis brought by some military units. While not commenting directly on the possibility, already put forward by the Zack government itself, that the Frumentarii could have been behind the attempted coup, the Supreme Marshal affirmed "the unshakable trust of New Tarajan in our Zack allies and friends" and the strongest support "of His Majesty's government to the Zack monarchy, its government, and its people against all threats, being them from abroad or not."
    It is clear that New Tarajan was partly caught by surprise by the attempted coup, and the reaction of the government let transpires a sense of strong relief for the swift (and positive) resolution of the whole thing. It is hard to believe that Astana would have been sitting, watching silently as Zackalantis fell into chaos, the most likely scenario being a direct military intervention, something that the Kingdom would gladly avoid to do in a period like this, and so close to its own borders.
    Similar statements of condemnation and support for Zackalantis have come from Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania, with the former, through the words of Prime Minister Augustine Rouhani, even offering security and military aid to the United Kingdoms.

    CRANSON APPREHENDED BY RHIELD
    The former NZ president captured by a team near Stilwater

    Astana.
    In a furhter confirm of how the tide of war is turning in favour of OMNI, and that the reputation of RHIELD is well earned, from the Pasargade, this morning, Wali Azura Roxanne Al Mawsili, head of the powerful intelligence and paramilitary organization, has announced that "one of our special teams have located, intercepted, and apprehended Cranson, the former New-Zealand president. The traitor is now safely in our hands."
    Al Mawsili also disclosed some details of the operation: "Our operatives, which had the logistic support of the skycarrier Ziyar, carried out this operation for many weeks. A methodical preparation, particularly for what concerned intelligence gathering, was the ground for another of our successes."Cranson "had found refuge in the city of Stilwater, together with much of the forces still loyal to him" Al Mawsili continued "Apparently, he was going to offer resistance to our advance in the area before finding refuge in Eurasia, possibly under the protecting wings of his Frumentarii allies. Something he will not be able to do now." she concluded without hiding her personal satisfaction.
    Cranson's exact location at the moment, however, remains a mystery. It is assumed by many that he is now on board the Ziyar, which is coming back to New Tarajan. About the fate of the man who will be probably be remembered in history as "the worst traitor of his own country" (the words are of Al Mawsili herself) no official comment has been released yet, though it is expected that he will be handed over to New-Zealand authorities once the war will end and order will be restored. Until that moment comes, he will probably be 'guest' of the Kingdom.

    NEWS FROM THE FEDERATION

    Forces of Antanares continue to advance

    Following the apparent loss of control from the central command of Eurasia, the forces of Antanares attached to the main OMNI contingent are advancing in the previously occupied territories. 1st and 2nd ARROW Task Force are pushing back in the so-called Hibernia, heading to the regional capital. No comment was diffused from the Advanced Federal High Command for Foreign Operation (AFHCFO), located in the eastern colony of the Federation. The journalists following the two task forces attached to the OMNI offensive has commented the advance describing a mix of hit-and-run operations conducted with fast attack helicopters and special forces, with the purpose to damage the positions of Frumentarii and Legionaries forces still active in the territory (and not involved in their personal feud), before the advance of the mechanized forces of the coalition and the occupation of key infrastructures and positions.

    Since the last month attacks on Eurasia, for now the ARROW forces are not relying on the support of artillery. The order was issued directly from the Bruma of Velikogovolka, as response to the accusations launched from several independent ONG and watchdog organizations about the extensive use of cluster bombs and shell-dividing projectiles during the last offensives conducted from Antanares.
    We are advancing in a territory full of civilians and volunteers from other parts of Esamir” said in a statement Major Andrei Valikov, spokesperson of ARROW Enforcer “So we prefer to advance slowly but steady, without involving the real victims of this conflict in the atrocity of war. Artillery brigades are still supporting our troops during the main engagements with Eurasia and its allies, but outside the main urban centres”.

    Invasion or containment?

    Most of the analysts, experts and scholars are divided about the previsions of the ongoing conflicts. Dr. Samuel Andeer, director of the Institute for Warfare, Insurgency and Terrorism (IWIT) commented in a recent diffused paper about the possible trajectories of the war with Eurasia. “History teaches us that, sometimes, a flanking strategy can be more effective than a all-ground attack. Eurasia is, in this conflict, an aggressor and an invader but has a strong support inside its territory. The government and the emperor can count on a totalitarian cultural, social and religious regime to assure the fidelity of mostly of their population. We know that, while operating COIN strategies, those three factors can be huge critical points to guarantee an efficient resolution of a COIN operation. Now, you could ask why we are talking about a COIN strategy, an anti-insurgency campaign in a controlled, or semi-controlled, territory” is written in the article published from the Velikogovolka State University “In case of an invasion of Eurasian and its occupation, we should think about the possible consequences. One it’s the continue warfare in a hostile territory. Because, beyond the easy talks and rhetoric, no one want really to exterminate an entire country, despite its malicious acts, Eurasia, in case of conquest, will be a hostile territory and environment for long time”.
    The paper continues discussing the possibility for the Coalition forces at OMNI-lead to effectively win the war and, after, the hearts and minds of Eurasian citizens. An invasion, for Dr. Andeer, will only be the prelude of a possible more catastrophic situation. The paper, published before the diffusion of the news about the unstable situation in Eurasia, seems to point in the right direction. No one, apparently, has really the intention to invade and remain inside Eurasia. The experts, at least a large majority of them, seems to support the idea of a continued media (and bombs) campaign to destroy the morale and the warfare capacity of Eurasia and arrive to a real truce, a stable one.

    Professor Yuri Popolich of St. Marc Institute of Political Science, instead, has another opinion in merit “Despite what most people think, in this war the government and the élite of Eurasia showed their belligerent intents and their incapacity, at the same time, to govern their nations. In this case, if most people prefer a fast resolution of the conflict, I say we should overthrow the actual government of Eurasia and change things at their roots. We have the occasion to really modify the actual shape of Eurasia and stop things like this to happens again in the future. We have the instruments, the means and the resources to do something like this”.

    The debates, currently ongoing, about the future of the war with Eurasia is still, for now, confined to the academic world. The government, in a non-unusual form of closure for what concern the strategies applied from the Ministry of Defence, seemed concerned more about the re-occupation of the allied territory in the hand of Eurasia. Also, not less important, Antanares is part of a broader coalition in the conflict and is operating under OMNI laws and directives. Despite being a leader of the organization, the leadership is still shared with the other allies.

    LEGATE POLEMIUS DECLARES UNILATERAL CEASEFIRE
    Legionary commander declares unilateral ceasefire in Hibernia; Frumentarii continue assault on Julium; Prime Minister of War releases prisoners of war.

    In a shocking development, the commander of all Imperial forces in Hibernia, Legate Julius Valerius Alexander Polemius, announced a unilateral ceasefire in Hibernia. The announcement, which read in part "[a]ll Imperial forces in Hibernia are to cease martial operations against OMNI forces as well as Resistance forces." Eurasian forces have reportedly allowed free New-Zealander forces to enter occupied territory to extract civilians and wounded. However, Legate Polemius has ordered that Eurasian forces will not be retreating unless so ordered by the Prime Minister of War, the Proconsul Gaius Martius Julianus Preceptor, who is His Imperial Majesty's first cousin.

    It has been reported by sources within the Legions that Frumentarii assaults have largely been repulsed by the superior numbers and training of the legionaries. Moreover, there have been sporadic reports of New-Zealander resistance aiding legionary forces against the Frumentarii. However, officially Eurasia is still at war with OMNI Enforcer.

    PRIME MINISTER OF WAR URGES CALM
    Proconsul Gaius Martius Julianus Preceptor, PM of War, confirms declaration of ceasefire; fighting continues in Julium; His Imperial Majesty reported safe.

    The Prime Minister of War, Proconsul Gaius Martius Julianus Preceptor, first cousin to His Imperial Majesty, appeared today before the Empire today from an undisclosed location in military uniform. Stressing the importance of imperial unity, the Prime Minister denied rumors of His Imperial Majesty's capture by Frumentarii forces, as well as confirmed the unilateral ceasefire declared by Legate Polemius. The Prime Minister went on to offer to the President of New Zealand, as well as the Grand Pensionary of New Tarajan, the offer of an unrestricted and direct line of communication with the "representative of His Imperial Majesty and of the Realm-entire."

    Meanwhile, fighting in Julium and across the Empire continues. The Ministry of Imperial Relations, acting at the behest of the Ministries of War and the Police, have confirmed that His Imperial Majesty has been taken to a safe location and is in full control of the Empire. Fighting in the Government Region continues, with the Legions joining the Police and Penitus Occulatus in shelling Frumentarii-occupied positions. Civilians have been evacuated en masse, and it has been rumored that the College of Pontiffs has evacuated the temples of valuables to undisclosed locations.

    BREAKING NEWS
    Tonare Jovis system under Frumentarii control; Ministry of Civil Defense declares state of Imperial Justitium.

    Editor's Note: The following message is reprinted at the request of the Ministry of Civil Defense.

    ATTENTION. A STATE OF IMPERIAL JUSTITIUM HAS BEEN DECLARED BY HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY EMPEROR AUGUSTUS IV IN THE FOLLOWING SUPERIOR PROVINCES: LAURENTINE ISLE, ASTICUS PENINSULA, GENEVEVIA, VESPERIAN SHIELD, MEDIOLANIAN PENINSULA, ARVEYRES, OUTER REGIONS. CITIZENS IN THESE AREAS ARE ADVISED TO TAKE IMMEDIATE SHELTER IN A FALLOUT SHELTER. A POSSIBLE NUCLEAR STRIKE BY A HOSTILE ENTITY MAY BE IMMINENT. TAKE SHELTER AND REMAIN UNTIL ALL-CLEAR IS GIVEN BY THE MINISTRY OF CIVIL DEFENSE OR A REQUISITE AUTHORITY. VIVAT EURASIA, VIVAT IMPERIUM.
    Approximately thirty-minutes-ago, the Ministry of Civil Defense suddenly announced that a possible incident had occurred regarding a possible nuclear accident. Then, within minutes, emergency sirens sounded across the Empire and a message flashed across televisions, radios, and cellphones. A possible nuclear strike may be imminent agains the Empire, with the targets unknown. All Eurasians have been ordered to take immediate shelter in one of the many fallout shelters constructed across the Empire. The entire Imperial Military has been put in a state of emergency muster, meaning it is now a capital offense to not report to barracks immediately and that every legionary, sailor, and airman throughout the entire Empire must be under arms within five hours. The Julium Times urges all Eurasians to heed the warnings of the Ministry of Civil Defense immediately.

    UPDATE
    Sources within the Ministry of War have confirmed to The Julium Times that the Special Weapons Legature, the branch of the Legions responsible for control of the Tonare Jovis system, has lost control of the weapons array. Tonare Jovis, built in the 1980s as the fourth part of the Empire's nuclear tetrad, remains the only nuclear attack system that is satellite-launched and remains in space permanently. The Empire has never decommissioned nor added to the system, but it has remained fully operational since. While exact schematics are unknown, it is theorized that the satellite is capable of delivering approximately twelve-sixteen megaton-yield nuclear missiles to any point on Earth.

    It is unknown who possesses control of this apocalyptic weapon, but it is certainly no longer Imperial forces. It is possible that the Frumentarii have gained control given their loss to the Legions and the Police in Julium, however this is conjecture. What is known is that all Eurasians should shelter in nuclear-resistant bunkers until ordered to leave by the Ministry of Civil Defense. The Julium Times did reach out to the Ministry of Civil Defense to inquire as to whether the missiles may be targeted against other nations, and whether their citizens should take shelter, to which the Ministry responded simply, "that would be advisable."

    QUEEN ABDICATES
    A. H. S. TRAFALGAR ASSUMES REGENCY

    Amidst the chaos of the downfall of the Arveyran government and nationwide protests, the worsening political situation in Arveyres has begun to shine a little brighter. As tensions in the nation are at an all time high, the Queen issued a televised statement apologizing to the people of the nation and announcing her abdication, citing what she called "incompetence" and a "disbelief that she could be the figurehead of national unity and civility". The nation now sits without a monarch on the Throne because as per Arveyran tradition, a council of the 7 most senior members of the Arveyran noble families must appoint a monarch out of the surviving immediate family of the Monarch.

    The Prelate of Sevilla, Adramire H. S. Trafalgar has assumed the regency and has plans to re-open the Senate and National Court to calm the masses who wish to see a working government. The Prelate has congratulated the militas of Salamanca and Ibarra for their intervention in the conflict in the Highlands of Magnolia.

    "As you were once our brothers, you are still our brothers, and for the welfare of you all, we extend open hands to offer you our full support. Those who would like the Arveyran nationality are fully open to apply. Our men are leaving your land but not our minds."

    A statement by the Prelate Trafalgar to the people of the Occupied Territories.

    The second most pressing matter for the Prelate was the backlash and disobedience faced by the Prelates of the Provinces outside of Sevilla and has ordered the reassignment of the Prelateship offices, with the office being replaced by a new official. In what news outlets are calling a "national turnover", it is hoped that the nation will go through a cultural change in the waits for a new monarch.

    In response to possible nuclear war, the Prelate said, business as usual.

    STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED AS ABMDS FULLY DEPLOYS

    Astana.
    The news coming from Eurasia has quickly overcome the enthusiasm created by the announcement of the new constitution. In an official statement released from the Palace of Government, the Duke of Coevorden, still ad interim Grand Pensionary and Supreme Marshal of the Kingdom, declared the state of the emergency, with a decree duly issued and signed by the king himself.
    As a result the Kalihaan Anti-Ballistic Missiles Defense System (ABMDS), better known with his nickname 'Space Shield' has been fully deployed, possibly for the first time since its creation. While the system is partially active since the beginning of the war against Eurasia, indeed, this is the first time that all its components, being satellite-based weaponry and sensors and ground-based (both fixed and mobile) systems are all fully active.
    The aim: to protect New Tarajan against any possible attack coming from Tonare Jovis, the Eurasian nuclear system.
    However, there is more: the RHIELD has been fully mobilized as well, from its previous operations in New-Zealand, and the target is clear, announced by the Duke of Coevorden himself in his statement.
    "We have no intention to leave the world, and ourselves, at the mercy of the Frumentarii. Should the need arise, we will be forced to destroy Tonare Jovis. Entirely."
    A clear statement to Eurasian authorities, still struggling in recovering from the attempted coup by the Frumentarii, the secret police of the Ministry of the Realm.
    Meanwhile, all offensives by OMNI have been halted as Eurasian forces have declared a unilateral ceasefire. Tarajani forces engaged on the Eurasian eastern coast have also ceased all activity, withdrawing toward Meisjegronden and Ienara.

    UKZ IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY

    For most of this war, many zack citizens continued their lives business as usual, albeit with lax curfews and an increased military presence. This will all change now as Her Majesty has approved a request from the government to declare emergency across the UKZ and her dependent territories.
    This means that parliament has no powers and most civil and political rights remain suspended.

    This came in response to the news out of Eurasia that their deadliest nuclear weaponry is no longer in their control. Citizens have been advised to be prepared to move into communal nuclear bunkers that were built many years ago when the UKZ first went to war against Eurasia. Underground subway stations are being turned into makeshift nuclear bunkers to house a large number of people.

    The UKZ does not have its anti-ballistic missile shield fully developed yet and at this stage, it is capable of only protecting the two capital cities- Cair Paravel and Buckingham. If a nuclear-capable missile were to target the UKZ, it would lead to widespread death and destruction and could very likely lead to the death of the UKZ as we see it today.

    Many zacks have left the UKZ to go and find solace in Gibraltar, Tasmania, Godricland and elsewhere in the Commonwealth that is still neutral in this war.

    While the OMNI, and especially the UKZ has had far-reaching success in the war against Eurasia, the war is taking a serious toll on the economy. If this war does not find a resolution soon, the UKZ could be heading for a massive depression. There is also a huge anti-government and anti-OMNI sentiment building within the nation as many people see that the UKZ has been unjustly dragged into this war only due to its obligations towards OMNI and New-Zealand. Foreign policy will play the biggest role in the general election next year and after the war is through, the 'Zexit' (UKZ leaving the OMNI) talk might resurface. But that is a concern for another time.

    The Prime Minister released in single line statement saying: "God Save The Queen, and God Bless our Souls"

    Grand Haven Recaptured; Large NZDF Force Redeploys
    Esamir International News Network - Page 25 WEB-04.26.17-CSX-W869-21-Military-train-at-Romney-Siding-Nortonville-Ky


    Grand Haven has finally fallen back into Social Democracy control today, as the brave men and women from the Northern Offensive and Drakenburg Offensive broke the Frumentarii hold on the city in a grand pincer manoeuvre. With the fall of the last major Hibernian stronghold, the war in NZ seems to be almost over, with only minor pockets of largely scattered resistance remaining. The overall war however, seems far from done, with a large section of the colossal Drackenburg offensive being redeployed alongside the majority of the Southern Offensive. Their sights set on the foreign shores of Tonare Jovaris and Eurasia. 

    We can now report that the NZDF is honouring a ceasefire with Legionnaire forces, following a highly secretive meeting between President Chrisjen Djako and Proconsul Preceptor of Eurasia. Furthermore, it seems that the NZDF is seemingly deploying in the aid of Legionnaire forces, with the previously sieged legionnaires of Grand Haven accompanying the large NZDF deployment towards Eurasia. While the charge of the motorised convoys down state highways through the spine of New-Zealand might have been a morale boosting grandiose show fit for movies, the new deployments seems to have taken more economically conventional methods with the vast bulk of the Social Democracy now reinstated. Large military trains have been witnessed heading out of Haven District headed east towards Eurasia, and the use of rail suggests Eurasian cooperation in the deployment. Whatever it is that is happening in Eurasia currently, it obviously seems big enough for these two superpowers to set aside their grievances. 

    News internationally however, seems to be of the looming nuclear threat from Tonare Jovaris. The NZDF and Djako's administration however reaffirm the public that the formidable "Iron Dome" Air Defence System of New-Zealand is currently, and will continue to remain, fully operational. As such the government is encouraging people to remain calm and avoid any panic.

    NEW TARAJAN FIGHTS FOR ALOIA
    The Landsraad authorized deployment of Palatine Guard and Landsweer to free the country

    With a cease-fire and the liberation of Grand Haven marking a possible end to the conflict in New-Zealand, and under the threat of a Tonare Jovis still in the hands of the Frumentarii, New Tarajan has suddenly (and unexpectedly by most) resumed and even enhanced its particiation in the war against Eurasia. It does so in a domestic climate dominated by renewed enthusiasms for the new constitution, the Federal Chart, issued by King Friederick Wilhelm II a few days ago, and in the wake of a desire by the Major Houses to overcome the political troubles and infighting of the last year with a collective show of resolution and power, a power further enhanced by the new constitutional provisions that sees the Landsraad enjoying an independence and authority it didn't have anymore since the 1919 revolution.
    Thus, it is not surprising that the decision to resume the fighting did not come from the King or the government, but from the Landsraad itself. Which, in a special session held yesterday evening in Palace Van Geldern, the first one to be officially chaired by the new Lord President, the Grand Duke of Middensteden, in the absence of Friederick Wilhelm, has voted unanimously (something that was not seen since the death of the Prince of Horat, Maximilian IV), to deploy the Palatine Guard and units from the Landsweer in an operation, proposed by Supreme Marshal the Duke of Coevorden, to liberate Aloia from Eurasian occupation. Which means that this time the burden of responsibility will directly fall on military units belonging to the States and the Landsraad, although with a strong support from the Royal Navy and the Air Force.
    The units involved in the new offensive are already being deployed, and optimism is rampant about the possibility to liberate Aloia quickly and, possibly, without much bloodshed.
    The political ratio behind the operation could not have been stated more clearly by the Landsraad itself, in a joint statement it issued soon after the vote: "As representatives of the States part of this glorious Kingdom, it is our sacred duty to send a message to the world: New Tarajan does not forget its friends and allies. As such, we will not tolerate anymore the hostile occupation of the lands of the Kingdom of Aloia, and we will do everything which is in our power, in collaboration with the government, the King, and the armed forces, to ensure that Eurasian forces withdraw from it as soon as possible."

    Statement on Arveyran regency

    The meeting at Palace Van Geldern also became the occasion for the Landsraad to work out its official position concerning the domestic situation developing in Arveyres, this time in conjunction with the royal government, represented by ad interim Grand Pensionary and Supreme Marshal the Duke of Coevorden.
    The result was a joint statement announcing that "New Tarajan will look with interest at any development occurring in the Superior Province of Arveyres" however refraining "from any unduly interference in what is, per definition, a domestic issue." The apparent neutrality of such a statement, however, was soon counterbalanced by a declaration of "deep respect for Queen Sofia, and the wish that the regency will soon re-establish order in all Arveyres, possibly finding a new monarch for the country."  New Tarajan and OMNI as a whole will keep considering Arveyran forces as non-hostile, however it should be remembered that naval and air forces belonging to the Kingdom have already been deployed nearby during the Arveyran occupation of Magnolia, and those forces have not left the area yet. How to interpret this move (or non-move) is already keeping many analysts busy, but it is undeniable that there is an increasingly vociferous line of thought, both inside the Landsraad and the government, advocating for a stronger intervention in Arveyres, an intervention which should take the form of a request for full and complete independence of the country from Eurasia to be put on the negotiations table once this will be opened.
