Objection!

 

Most of these states are communists and don't care about property rights, therefore their claim of succession is void as such a claim could never exist!

 

Except for Singapore and Ceylon, who are part of Tianxia, and don't produce such Eurotrash drivel and therefore their claim is void.

 

I demand you pay my client whatchu owe !@#$%*!

Chad Cevino, Grade 1: "Again?"

'Chip': "Yeah, shall I pass it up the chain?"

Chad: "Nah, the higher grades hate receiving that stuff. Just bin it. If someone needs it, they'll come looking for it and we can find it again in a decade or so."

OOC: Indeed, but Selenarctos bureaucracy is very old and very deep.

Classified:

After years of a slow introduction and luke-warm reception, the Selenarctos Air Force has decided to scrap future plans for the F-111 Air Superiority Fighter. The F-111 remains a remarkable feat of engineering, but unit and maintenance costs were just too high for the plane exposed to salt water as much as it was. The current squadrons will be slowly rotated out of active service, and the Air Force is evaluating alternatives to replace them.

Fieres Shipyards has begun laying down four additional Calasiao class missile submarines. On paper, the submarines are listed as Lhuiller class and only select commanders and the training crews have been told of the decision to produce additional Calasiao submarines. The Navy expects the new submarines to be fully armed and operational in two and a half year's time.

Public:

The Department of Security has requested that the Selenarctos Aerospace Consortium and Bulldog Armored Vehicles submit bids to develop a new air superiority fighter. The DoS wants a plane that is cheaper to produce and maintain than current jets, suitable for mass deployment in the Air Force. The new fighter must be stealthy, cruise at supersonic speeds, and compatible with existing air-to-air weapon systems. The Manila Times expects fierce competition from the SAC as they fight to regain ground after the highly public selection of Bulldog's F-X fighter over the SAC's competing model.



Classified:

The F-1 Quantum will be phased out of service, following the X-111. The Department of Security feels that the F-1 is no longer an integral part of Selenarctos' air defense, and that existing F-22 squadrons can provide adequate air support until new aircraft are operational

The Selenarctos Department of Economics is pleased to announce that Nippon and Meihua have been added to the Expedited Visa Program. Travel or work visa applications from expedited countries are normally processed in under twenty-four hours, as opposed to the ten or thirty days for non-expedited countries. Secretary of the Economy Dr. Odon Zelaya, who championed the addition, said he hopes this will increase travel and trade opportunities in the region.

Is the Selenarctos Peacekeeping Force still relevant?
An Editorial in the Manila Times.

Three decades ago as the Oceanic Union dissolved, Selenarctos held the majority of Oceania as a protectorate zone. During this time, with the Selenarctos Army deployed across the continent there was concern that this created something of a double standard for the the army commanders: on one side the Army was expected to integrate itself as a population-friendly police force in protectorate zones, while on the other side the Army had to be ready to engage and eliminate an external enemy of the state without delay or hesitation in the event that Selenarctos came under attack. The Selenarctos Peacekeeping Force was created separate protectorate police duties from national security, and free Army units for deployment if they were needed elsewhere.

In today's world, Selenarctos no longer maintains the protectorate zones it once did. The Pacific Protectorate Zone is one of the last remaining protectorates, home to far less than the population of Australia or Indonesia that once existed as protectorate zones. In fact, of the the ten full strength Peacekeeping divisions only half of the 106th SPF Mechanized Division are actively deployed in the Pacific Protectorate Zone. The remaining nine and a half division reside on friendly soil with no active deployments expected for the foreseeable future.

This begs the question: does Selenarctos still need a 150,000 man strong peacekeeping force? With elections on the horizon, this seems a fair question for the Presidential candidates.

The Coast Guard has begun the integration process for six Fast Response Cutters purchased from the American Commonwealth as they arrive. Designated the 'Sentinel class,' the vessels will supplement the aging Cyclone class patrol ships for interdiction and high-risk circumstances. As a part of the integration, the Coast Guard announces a relocation of forces. Three Sentinels and two Cyclone patrol ships will be based out of Mariveles on the China Sea side while the remaining Sentinels and one Cyclone will be based out of Dinalungan on the Pacific side. The Coast Guard is also considering increasing its drone fleet to better patrol waterways around Selenarctos and extending into the Pacific Protectorate Zone.

The National Government of Selenarctos announced earlier today the annexation of Micronesia and the Marshall islands. These islands, formerly in the Pacific Protectorate Zone, will be integrated as a proper part of Greater Manila with the appropriate privileges and legal protection entitled to all native inhabitants. The Department of Humanities stated the annexation of a territory without the motivation to self-governance would offer greater economic benefit to everyone in the islands and Greater Manila. The 6th SPF Mechanized responsible for the Pacific Protectorate Zone will oversee the transition, with elements of the Air Force and Navy dispatched to incorporate the region into the national government's defense plan.

Classified:

The 139th and 140th Interceptor Squadrons will permanently rebase to the new territory.
Bonifacio and Calasiao -class submarines shall begin extended deployments in the region.
The 3rd Mechanized Division shall upgrade it's rotating deployments in the region to permanent garrisons.
The 3rd Task Force shall expand it's patrol route from Yap to include the Marshall Islands.
