It is the opinion of the Republic of Greater Colombia, in the interests of continued harmony and stability in South America, that the Mayan Nation is to now come under the protection of the Republic of Greater Colombia. We will not suffer the sight of further internal conflict which has cost this continent and our fellow brother and sisters of Latin America already too much in the past decade, security and military forces are currently en route or already crossing the border into the Mayan Nation as this message is dispatched. For the citizens of the former Mayan Nation, it is with a heavy heart that we share condolences with you over what appears to be a failed independence movement, in the interests of ensuring your continued stability and prosperity, a transitional government will be nominated from your own people, overseen by officials of the Colombian Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Home Affairs, and the Interior. Any military forces deployed to the Mayan Nation will be nominally under the command of the Ministry of the Interior, as this is deemed a regional constabulary mission, and will be supporting internal and local police forces in keeping the peace and ensuring a peaceful transition until a new government can be formed by the people. When we can assure that our southern neighbors can live in peace and prosperity, then, and only then, can we go home, after we have assured our brothers and sisters that they are being watched over by their Latin American family to the north. Godspeed. [i]Ignacio de Ardanza President of the Republic of Greater Colombia[/i] [center][b]*** *** ***[/b][/center] [b]Semi-Classified[/b] With the collapse of the independence movement in Peru evident after its inaction over nearly a full year, the Republic, despite its own internal burdens, was quick to react with swift action to what was described as a growing state of chaos across its southern border. Rumors had trickled over the border for months now of possible strongmen coming to power in Peru's Southeastern Departments, and an effort was now underway to ensure that further order was not lost, especially in the metropolitan areas. In order to establish areas of constabulary operation on the ground, and ensure the safe arrival of peacekeeping forces, including the Colombian National Police, it would be up to what the Colombian National Army dubbed its "fast reaction forces". Elements of the 1st and 5th Airborne Divisions would be divided into battalion-sized teams for emergency airborne assaults and airlifts into strategically-important Peruvian Cities, which would establish outposts from which to begin reasserting control over what could be called lawless frontiers. Company-sized airborne assaults on the airports at Taraputo, Iquitos, Talara, Chiclayo, Cajamarca, Trujillo, Cusco, Lima, and Arequipa would then be followed shortly by airlifts of paratroopers coming in on C-17 [i]Globemaster[/i] or C-124 [i]Atlas[/i] airlift aircraft. If local security forces ensured perimeters, the initial wave of paradrops would be airlifted instead of dropped, however. F-1 [i]Halcón[/i] Air Superiority Aircraft (on their first operational deployment), numbering around four dozen total, split into groups of two fighters apiece, providing high altitude cover of the aerial operation that had begun in the wee hours of the early morning, the aircraft would pass over the Colombian-Mayan border around daybreak, and split into tactical formations as they made for their areas of operation. An amphibious strike group would also depart the Port of Buenaventura early in the morning, with two amphibious assault ships and one amphibious transport dock at the head of the convoy of ships that included a mixed array of escorts; destroyers, frigates, heavy corvettes and even a multimission submarine and a guided missile submarine. Embarked on the three amphibious warfare vessels were the balance of two Marine Regimental Combat Teams from the 1st Marine Division, along with a Battalion Combat Team from the 2nd Marine Division, the 1st Marine Regimental Combat Team was assigned to land at the coastal town of Chimbote, securing the protective bay and the town's airport, while the 5th Marine Regimental Combat Team was to land at Lima with 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regimental Combat Team, and establish contact with the airlifted battalion from the 2nd Airborne Regiment at Lima's airport. Newly-commissioned AC-130U Gunships and FB-102 [i]Javelina[/i] Close Air Support Aircraft would be on call, flying circular formations in Colombian airspace, ready to provide assistance if required, a few of the AC-130Us would be mixed in with the airborne assault forces, their appearance a little less frightening then the sleeker and faster FB-102s, whose pilots tended to be a rowdy bunch. Follow up elements of the substantial operation would include the IV Corps Headquarters Group, which would establish operational control over all military units in the Protectorate, which would be flown into Lima soon after the airborne forces made their appearance. Further reinforcements included a battalion from the 45th Airborne Ranger Brigade, a company sized action element of the officially-disavowed domestic counter-terrorism Task Force 332, and a platoon embedded in the paradrop on Lima from the shadowy Battalion 5043. Plans were also in the works for the transfer of a brigade from one of the National Army's Air Cavalry Divisions, a full infantry division, and a brigade from an Armored Cavalry Division, but their transfer was still in the planning phases.
