[i][size="1.5"]Hæren troops of the 401 Bataljon, Telemark Regiment AKA "Týr’s favoured", board a Luftforsvaret C-130, headed for Svalbard.[/size][/i]

[b]Oslo, Norway -[/b] Yesterday, the interm Edleting, announced a decloration of protection over Svalbard. For months, it had been in anarchy, and no government had acted to quell the unrest and restore law and order. In the Kings speech regarding the issue he stated that "We belive that with the british government is in no state to deal with Svalbard, and its regional neighbours have done nothing to help the people. Therefore, it is up to Norway, to restore order, distribute food and medical supplies and ensure that Svalbard remains in a fit state, to once again form its own government, should it choose to do so." It has been announced that norwegian military forces will be flown to svalbard, by the Royal Norwegian Air Force.

In other news, preperations have begun for tomorrows elections. The parties have been compaigning for days, hoping that they will get the chance to form the first government of Norway. Early polls show the Center Party as having a strong lead, closly followed by the Workers Party. Once the elections are complete, the constitution will be in full effect, with the Storting taking over governance of the country from the Edleting.

Svalbard signed papers that guaranteed land reversion back to the United Kingdom (or in this case England) in case it fell; England's own problems may have prevented them from governing Svalbard properly in the short term, but the territory belongs to them and this is tantamount to an invasion and declaration of war. No one nation can unilaterally cancel agreements made by others based on their opinion, and given that England's issues were solved and they are going back on the right track, this is nothing short of a blatant land-grab. Further, as the land belongs to England and England is a protectorate of Ireland, this is tantamount to an invasion and declaration of war on Ireland as well. Ireland demands Norway ceases all military movements and removes themselves from English, and thus Irish, territory.

We hold our promises (such as our protectorate over England, and our Addendum) till the death. If Norway wishes to dispute the sovereignty of Svalbard, they may do so diplomatically, but continued military presence on the islands will cause further harm to our relations and hopes for a peaceful solution.

"The problem is that Svalbard is not England. We had given England Svalbard in order for them to have a fallback point in the case of Celtic-Russian aggression back in the day, since then Svalbard when no longer important strategically became a free country. I think that in these circumstances, if Svalbard can no longer be a country of its own, Norway or ourselves should have the responsability to once more protect the zone."

Celtic-Russian aggression as apposed to Germanic aggression, what a novel idea. The so called aggression was only in your minds and we take offense to being publically denounced back then as well as now. When the chips were down who was really the aggressive party? The imperialist British and Germans with their expansionist policies in the Arctic Circle and Austria.

Svalbard signed agreements with England, just as Ireland did, to gain its independence. England promised the protection of Svalbard if it were to fall, and it has - and since Ireland protects England, it is not only theirs but also Irish duty to see to it that that promise is kept.

1. Per this agreement, both the nations of Ireland and Norway (and any respective successor states; to be referred to as the Ireland-Norway pact nations) are to have joint control Svalbard.
2. If, in the future, Svalbard (or any part of it) wishes independence from the Ireland-Norway pact nations, both states must agree to the terms of independence.
3. Until the terms of Point Two are completed, the Ireland-Norway pact nations agree to each occupy a joint base on Svalbard with equal military presence.
4. After the terms of Point Two are completed, if Svalbard falls once more, it is the duty of the Ireland-Norway pact nations to enforce the Svalbard Agreement once more.[/font]

"It is rather shameful that Ireland, for all it's boasting only extends it's power over lands that lack a responsible government, in the case of England. Or lack any government at all, in the case of Svalbard. Norway's actions are simply to bow to any nation that puts their foot forward. But when Germany, under Haas sought to subjugate Europe. Where was Ireland then? Where was England then? We are sure that Norway will fall in time and that Ireland will remain, on the sidelines of Europe waiting for more territories to extend their hands over. As shameful as it is to say, hopefully there will be a Haas there to keep the Celts in check. When one despot falls, other very quickly arise to take their place."

"I do not think that this situation has been successfully solved, the Irish have spread their influence to an area that does not belong to them. Only Norway and Germania are countries which should be able to control and or protect Svalbard, and it would be a shame if we were forced to have to protect Svalbard as we had to protect Faroes."

As a matter of fact Svalbard was once a dependency of Slavorussia and later the RUSSIAN Pact. If we liked we could stake a claim over Svalbard because it is our right as well. However Svalbard should stay independent, not the puppet at the end Ireland, Norway or Germany's strings.

You're pathetic. Not only did we clearly state our intentions over why we "extended our power", as you say, but we've made sure to be as diplomatic as possible over the entire English incident with Athens and with Norway over Svalbard. Svalbard, whether you like it or not, belonged to England and England is under our protection until they get back in order. If Austria had told Athens that Austria would protect Athens in case of incident, and then Slavorussia encroached on Athens, would Austria simply sit back and let Slavorussia kick Athens while they are down? I thought not.

"And of course Ireland is there to save the day. Ireland is there to save England from Fascism only after much of the entire world threatened to destroy them, who since the end of the monarchy has made more news in sports talk than politics. Ireland was also there to save Svalbard from anarchy with help from Norway. But why was it then that Norway was the first to initiate this move, only after did Ireland move to say that the territory was England's and thus under their protection. You can create analogies, you can create fictitious 'what-if' scenarios, you can do all those things. But it does not remove the fact, Addendum or not, that Ireland is simply grabbing land which is easy to taken to extend their influence over Europe.

Another question that seems rather important to ask. Svalbard was England's responsibility, because of England's decrepit government, it passes to Ireland. But in the event that England once again has a stable and active government, will Svalbard continue to be under Irish Protection or will it be transferred to England? That would give the world a better understanding of your intentions.

Oh and for as pathetic as we might be, we weren't the ones who made a truce with a madman. Shame you weren't able to take Iceland, eh?"

"We have made our intentions clear - Ireland declared our intentions almost exactly at the same time as the Athenians; we were the ones who, also, made a diplomatic end to the situation instead of using bombs and guns to end the fascist regime, something "the entire world" failed to do. Svalbard did not need "saving" - as we told Norway, there was no crisis in Svalbard and no reason anybody needed to intervene whatsoever. Svalbard belonged to England and there was no need for an Irish intervention until [b]after [/b]a third party interfered.

"England will count as the "successor" in the Ireland-Norway Pact if English regains a stable government, and if they wish to continue holding onto Svalbard. We will not try to take the land by force. As we assured the Norwegians, we had no plans to add Svalbard to our own land, and our intentions during this entire episode were to fulfill our promise to the English. This is a fact, an undisputed fact, something that is supported by not only our words and promises but our actions as well.

"Perhaps Austria should get over their paranoid tendencies: Ireland has no wish to create an Empire. Scotland, Wales, and England all had their turn dominating the Isles and expanding. Ireland will not be joining them."

[[OOC: I was pretty much the first to say on IRC that I was going to declare war, but real life precluded RP for about four hours and Cent had posted by then. as far as I'm concerned, the only time that had passed was the time involved in Cent's post by the way]]

[b]Oslo, Norway -[/b] Today, after much debate, the Edleting and the Storting have confirmed a law, legalising and recognising the right for a noble to maintain a [i]Hird[/i](household guard, made up of [i]huscarls[/i]), however, there are several restrictions on the [i]Hird[/i]. The Hird may not number more then two hundred men, they may not stockpile automatic weapons or any weapon with a caliber greater then 12.7mm. For many months, the major households had maintainedd a routine of private security guards, however this will allow the households to personally recruit members for their own private forces, instead of relying on security companies.

[b]Oslo, Norway -[/b] A recent review by Forsvaret High Command of all Home Guard units has revield the dire circumstances, many of these units find themselves in. It has been revield that many Home Guard units are using out dated weapons and equipment, due to a lack of funding. It was revield that Hordaland, Nordland and Far North Brigades had been issued with german rifles that saw serive in the Second World War. Most Home guardsmen are issued with G3 rifles, however there are not enough to go round and the Ministry of Defence is unwilling to produce more. A spokesman fromt he the MoD had this to say: "There is just not enough room in the budget to cater for all the Home Guard units. They are a reserve force, and as such, they do not recive as high a share of funding as the Hæren." Their is no word yet, if there are plans to replace the outdated equipment.
