Securing Ireland


Malatose

[b]Dispatch from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs[/b]

[i]With the fall of a stable Irish government and a need to secure Europe from foreign invaders, The Continental Empire of Dalmatia, as of today, puts the Nation of Ireland under the direction control and jurisdiction of the Empire. The nation will be under the control of the Imperial Government until further notice.[/i]

After the message was dispatched, quick reaction units from the Imperial Airborne Forces began to land in strategic sections of Ireland, in order to bring peace to a lawless region.

The provisional government of England would like to remind everyone that Ireland shall revert to English control in the event of the Irish government collapsing, a clause the very government of Ireland signed itself.

We would like to thank the Dalmatian for caring enough about Ireland to attempt to resume democracy and would possibly be willing to discuss a joint protectorate over the country of Ireland in the future.

At the moment we consider Ireland to be an English protectorate until such a time as a joint protectorate can be arranged.

At the moment all Dalmatian aircraft will be denied entry into English airspace.

OOC: Come on, you can't just land aircraft in Ireland all of a sudden and just take control :V

DEFCON 3[/b]

Several people sit in their stations with large glass, touchscreen maps in front of them. A few lights starting blinking and then a few alarms began going off. A supervisor was walking around and watching as several small dots began appearing to be heading towards the British Isles. "Chief what would you like me to do?" said one of the desk chairs, "Contact Douglas and tell them they'll be getting a call from the Overlord soon. With the message to Douglas request that we drop to DEFCON two." The man at the desk quickly began typing as the supervisor walked over to a red phone and waited only a few seconds, "This better be good" said a muffled voice on the other end of the line. The 'Overlord' was enjoying lunch.

"Sir we seem to have a large number of unidentified flying objects approaching either us or Ireland. A message is being sent to Douglas as we speak." Overlord put down his hotdog and looked at the monumental map of Europe in front of him. After typing in a few codes he centered on the British Isles. "Aye I see them. I am bringing us down to DEFCON 2, Douglas can change that if they want to. Keep watching I am going activate the response plans. Overlord out."

Overlord did a 180 in his wheelie-chair and picked up a phone and called in to New Dublin. "Overlord here, we have a large number of bogies heading towards Ireland" he confirmed, seeing their flight pattern a little better now. "get all the birds in the air and the airborn division ready to land, we are now at DEFCON 2."
Overlord hung up the phone and then dialed another number, "Get the Marines, Army, and National Guard ready for battle."

"Chief O'Neil. We have an urgent message from the Overlord HQ." Susan looked up, eagerly waiting for Robert to return from New Dublin to help her run the country while David was in the hospital. The message she was handed simply read,

[i][b]Office of The Overlord[/b]

Aircraft inbound for Ireland. Nation of origin: Unknown. Emergency military response has been started, permission to get boots on the ground in Ireland. By the time you read this message the air force will be in the air. The DEFCON Level has been lowered to two.

The Overlord will be in constant contact.[/i]

Susan stood back and dropped the letter, "Douglas!" she called. The young marine with the same last name of the capital city he lived in stepped up to Susan and saluted, "Active the Emergency Broadcast System and alert Homeland of the possibility of an attack. Sound the sirens here, in New Dublin, and in the North. Do the same for anywhere else in the WI. Be ready to bring us down to DEFCON 1 on my order." Douglas quickly walked away to a different room to fulfill his orders. Sirens went off immediately as all non-essential TV stations switched to, "This is the Emergency Broadcast System. Stay indoors and do not exit your homes. The British Isles are under attack."

The message may have overplayed the event however the Orange House would rather be safe then sorry.

Sirens blared as fighter after fighter zoomed into the air. Two C-130s were loaded up with the 1st Airborn Division as anti-aircraft weapons were being manned. The anti-naval weapons were also manned even though a naval force had yet to be engaged. "This is Clover One to Overlord. Do you copy?" Overlord typed on several different keyboards as he sent hundreds of messages to different military facilities across the country, "This is Overlord I read you loud and clear. Get two boys to escort the C-130s to Dublin and the rest of you get into Irish airspace pronto. Be weapons ready because you might be going in hot."

Several sirens were sounding as many Coast Guardsmen manned their small yet reliable ships that would get them to the Irish Coast.

Nearly twenty jets roared over the Orange House as Robert came through the door with his left arm in a cast. "Susan, what the hell is going on!" Susan ran over to Robert and brought him into the round room, "I don't know we have some type of aerial attack coming towards Ireland. I checked FA and we haven't gotten any messages yet. I gave the order to deploy." Robert nodded and put on his coat, "Alright let's get into the battle stations everyone! Go go go!" The Orange House didn't have a single person who wasn't rushing through with orders and papers. A mass mobilization began of the United States military. Because the USI and Ireland are so close, it would only be a matter of minutes until the air force was roaring over the beaches of Ireland. The Coast Guard would make it to Dublin in a matter of 15 minutes while the first air-born would reach Dublin in five minutes.

[b]The Round Room[/b]

"Madame, we just got a message from FA. It seems Delmatia is trying to claim protection over Ireland?" Susan stood, "Robert is now acting President, give it to him." Robert opened the letter and looked at it, "Let's try to make contact with them and see what the hell is going on. Susan try to get in touch with Cochin and Athens to see if they know anything about this?"

"While this act can certainly be considered as noble in the interest of restoring stability to Ireland after the fall of its' central government, the leadership of the Cajun Federation sees many other states as better able to ensure the protection of Ireland then Dalmatia. There are more states in western Europe better positioned and suited to ensure that the sovereignty and security of the Irish people are seen to.

As such, the Federation, while of course lauding Dalmatia's initiative to ensure stability for the Irish people, does not recognize this declaration of protection as legitimate and legal."

"Noble as Dalmatia's intentions may be, we are inclined to agree with the Cajun Federation's statement. Dalmatia is not in a close enough proximity to Ireland to serve as an effective and viable protector; it is an Eastern European country with no Atlantic or north European ports that must cross into foreign airspace and territorial waters in order to provide support for Ireland, militarily or economically. Surely there is a more local protector that had closer ties to Ireland that can take on the responsibility?

That said, Kurland does not recognize this declaration or Dalmatian control of Ireland."

"We are sad to see Ireland lost to anarchy. While we applaud the actions of the Dalmatians, Ireland should return to English protection."

With the collapse of Ireland, Norwegian forces in Svalbard quicly moved to secure the Irish bases. 212 Bataljon, Telemark Regiment as well as 330 Skvadron, 132 Luftving would be sent to Svalbard, to boost security in the absence of the Irish.

Robert stood with Susan next to him. They both had podiums, one wasn't in front or behind the other. This was a strong sign that they felt the were equals in this endeavor. If David was awake then he was probably watching it live.

"Ladies and gentlemen" said Susan, as she tried to over speak the talking of the crowd. All the news reporters were cheering as Robert blushed. He has saved the President's life by taking a bullet for him, he was a hero. "The Vice President and I are here to make an official announcement concerning foreign affairs." Susan nodded over to Robert who began the speech in his leather jacket and button up shirt. He looked good for having been shot in the arm.

"Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow Islanders, my fellow citizens of the world. It is an honor to talk to you today as I am making good recovery from the accident in New Dublin. President O'Reilly is doing much better and should be back here in Douglas soon." Everyone cheered again but Robert held up his good arm, "Chief O'Neil and I are here to make a declaration of foreign affairs. Now, currently there is an effort with many nations around Europe in claiming the Island of Ireland. The United States of The Islands is the closest sovereign nation to Ireland so we assume the responsibility of securing the Island and keeping it in the hands of a nation of the British Isles.
I have faith that the British Isles will prevail however I must urge other foreign powers to step down now to prevent conflict. As we speak the first Airborn division is landing in Dublin and the Coast Guard is 'storming' the beaches near Belfast. The Marines are working together with the Coast Guard and the Air Force to make their way to Ireland. I can't give specifics but we are deploying thousands of our boys to protect Ireland from foreigners.

I got word in the Round Room with Ms. McNeil that at least two fighters had made their way to Cork and many other members of the air force were around Dublin, Belfast, and heading in all directions of the island.

I still urge all of you to remain home today and pray for our soldiers. I will be taking any questions?" A member of the press raised his hand, "Vice President McNeil, what of the doctrine that England has, claiming Ireland in the absence of government?" The Vice President nodded, "I am aware of this document however it is the goal of the United States to prevent anyone out of the British Isles in claiming Ireland as their own. With over 95% of the people here being Irish, I will not let anyone from far away lands claim our homeland. The English and the United States will discuss this later however this is now a matter of national security.

I need to go now because I have important matters to tend to. Thank you all for your time, and God Bless."

Three jets roared as they protected the USI coast. The Norwegian forces would be met halfway in the ocean with the USI Air Force, "This is Green 1 to unidentified crafts. Ireland is now under the protection of the United States of The Islands, and the Kingdom of Great Britain, any attempt to land forces on Ireland without cooperation of the USI and England will be taken as an act of aggression." The fighters stayed the near the crafts waiting for a response.

Dublin[/b]

The Irish people watched as two large C-130s roared over Dublin, many men jumped out and pulled their shoots. All were armed with their standard M-16 assault rifles. Their mission was to secure the Irish capital buildings. When the men landed they quickly made their way to their target as the set up a command center and made communications with Douglas back in the USI. When the Coast Guard landed they had the objectives of securing the Dublin airport and making it a refueling station in Dublin for the USI air force. While the Coast Guard landed, the air force would be coming with more C-130s filled with men and supplies and also helicopters filled with Marines and the Army.

Belfast[/b]

The Coast Guard made their way to Belfast as the air force zoomed over them, beating them to the Irish city. They began to circle the city waiting for the Coast Guard to secure the airport in Belfast. Helicopters would be right behind the Coast Guard ready to drop troops in the hundreds. As more C-130s got into the air they also began to bring more troops. The air force spread itself over Ireland quickly circling Dublin, Belfast, and Cork.

The Air Force also began to fly in the waters as well to divert any foreign traffic, military or not, away from Ireland.

"Citing obligations through the Sovereign Initiative and separate treaties with the Dalmatian state we formally support them in their attempts to liberate. We quite fiercely object to English control as recent events have shown they can barely handle their own land, let alone Ireland too."

---

All forces active in Europe, especially those in France and the United Kingdom were taken to a heightened state of alert.

While Dalmatia should be commended for preventing an outbreak of anarchy, we cannot wonder if a nation that is closer in both culture and distance would not be a better protector of the island.

OOC: How did malatose get all those soldiers to Ireland without the slightest bit of RP? Doesn't he have to fly over several nation's territory to do it, and I don't recall any permission or anything.

OOC: Actually he can pretty much do the entire thing through my land, and as a treaty partner with military access he doesn't need permission.

Grand Papua supports the United States in its effort to bring peace to Ireland, and hope that imperialists and fascists are kept at bay. We salute you!

OOC: Yes, the basic geography and positioning indicate that Malatose could certainly not have his troops anywhere near Ireland before the countries nearer to it can react to whatever actions. I believe the recent ruling was that no one can do instant troop movements unless the troops were right nearby.

##Private query to the Government of Athens.##

You know.. Ireland was also once an Angevin Territory. I don't really like seeing Dalmatia grab hold of it in this manner. Think there is anything we can do to work something out?

Ireland was once an Angevin territory. They're also quite close to our borders. We have the resources to oversee and manage the isle if you wish it to be in the hands of a more culturally related government in proximity which is stable.

Given we are indirectly affiliated via our ties to Athens, I was hoping you may give it some consideration.

"The Angevin government is glad to see that someone stable shall be taking care of our friends, neighbors, and relatives in Ireland." Was the only statement on the matter by King Geoffrey.

The Cajun Federation Navy's [i]Doiron[/i] battlegroup's bi-monthly exercises in the North Atlantic have been extended. A reinforcement group with escorts and support vessels have been dispatched to ensure that this exercise can continue for an extended period of time. Additional attack submarines have been deployed to provide larger amounts of OPFOR vessels for the exercises being conducted.

OOC: And where is the relevant RP, showing that Malatose's forces were in any shape or position to occupy all of Ireland before those right next to it could? Sorry, but something is a bit fishy here.
