At 2.30 pm CST the 1st armored company 3rd light infantry brigade rolled into Peru under the orders of General Cassio. Copacabana was the first city to be unofficially annexed by United Bolivia as the soldiers turned the once neutral territory into a fortified base camp, tanks dug in and soldiers patrolled the city asking for information on the fleeing cardinals, who as far as they had known had no following amongst neighboring states. But the reach of the Church is as far as its political reach, and it could only be expected that the corruption might've spread to Peru following the flight of the renegades. For now the turmoil in  United Bolivia distracted its people from what plots and schemes would be unfolding in Peru in the very same hours of strife.

 

With tourism shut down and the beaches closed by the Armed Forces of United Bolivia while more troops began to land in Copacabana. Due to the seeming lack of a military presence in Peru Copacabana had been begrudgingly given up to the superior army.

While Copacabana had been utilized as a beachfront for entering Peru the renegade Cardinals were also hard at work rallying supporters. While they had none of the true military might of the United Armed Forces, they did still have the elements of the White Consuls who'd also fled with them. The exact number of the renegade force could only be speculated at four hundred with mixed degrees of weaponry. It could also be speculated that the renegade army would close to making its retaliation movements.

Forward: Phase 1

 


The armed forces landing in Peru would immediately begin disembarkation and move into the city limits. The process would follow relatively smoothly and within three hours over a thousand soldiers from the Marine Corps had landed in Copacabana cementing United Bolivia's grip. Though the landing proceeded as planned the continuance of Phase 1 was to take a horrible downhill slide.

Two and one half hours after the invasion of Peru, the heavens fell in the fiery form of 155mm shells. Fired from Haubits FH-77 Artillery pieces far outside Copacabana, the explosive force punching craters in the once tropical paradise. Entirely no response could be made by the armed forces of United Bolivia due to the fact that such an armament had never been predicted. As the sky was ablaze with fires, it was in these dark hours that training snapped in and the soldiers of United Bolivia did all that could be commanded of them ten times over. Squads could be seen going back into the burning city to save civilians only to see the civilians returning, their Guardians missing or continuing to evacuate the city.

Calls for aid to the United Bolivian C&C centers would ultimately be unanswered as White Consul forces would sieze AA emplacements near the Peruvian-Bolivian Border and threaten to fire should the beleaguered defenders in Copacabana receive support. For the time being the soldiers of the 3rd light infantry were pinned between the falling skies and a sea of madness.

Radio comms from Fac11 to the 3rd light infantry brigade, radio operator, Sam Robles

To:XXX
From:XXX
Subject: Relief

We will be aiding the men of the 3rd, in the coming days, we ask you hold onto Copacabana with all your might. We are assembling the retaliation effort at this moment but the logistics will take time. Stand tall brothers, and know that God is on the side of the right. Pray that we are on his side.

 

 

 

For the first time in a long time he bowed his head to pray.. "Lord..?" he said with tears on his eyes. "I'm going to do right by these people.." unfolding his hands Sam looked out into the city, the fires burning high and screams echoed the blood stained streets. It was hell, he was sure of that. What sins he'd committed he couldn't remember, because even in war God loves all his sons equally.

 

That was something his mother had always told him, "No matter what Samuel.. He loves you" and he carried it in his wallet to this day. He stood. The dust and grit that covered his face made his eyes shine all the brighter, the cold ice shards that pierced your mind. He swung the heavy comms set over his shoulder and walked to his squad as more shells impacted the city sending shockwaves through the earth.

 

"Private Robles.. are the reinforcements on the way?" the question was simple, or was it an order? His mind was befuddled as he stammered out a reply to Sergeant Lucena, the broad shouldered brute who was, as they called them, a lifer.

 

"I.. uh.. nyes.. Yes Sergeant." it wasn't a lie, and Sam knew that. But his heart knew it was a lie why would the General risk the safety of La Paz over the lives of his men. Cassio was not a soldier, he was a politician who wore a uniform and they were worlds' different.

 

"Good.. How long?" another question? or a statement? It mattered not when another sleuth of words slipped from between his dry lips. The frown on the Sergeants face was evident that his reply wasn't a favorable one as the sergeant turned away along with the remainder of the squad. Lukas, Harmon, Castor, Leon, and Kristian.

 

They were a band of misfits so to speak, ex gangers, thiefs, delinquents and drug users who'd escaped the life by signing up with their local recruitment offices where they met Samuel Robles, the runaway son of the President of United Bolivia. Together through boot camp the six boys became men together. Their first test though wouldn't be one of physical strength but one of devotion, loyalty, and selflessness as a simple hunt turned into a war against the Renegade Army.

Chasing Shadows: Entry One: Sam Robles

 

All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers - Francois Fenelon

 

The night is no different. I still hear the screams of fathers as they search hopelessly for their dead children. I still see children walk aimlessly in the streets before they are obliterated before the falling heavens. I still feel the ache in my bones with every step I take. It has been mere hours yet my soul has been at war for years it seems. We've received our orders.

 

We're moving forward.

 

The initial five hour bombardment hadn't ceased when the order to advance was given. Thirty-three Type-4 tanks and 386 soldiers died in the first day of shelling. The remaining twelve battle tanks and 614 soldiers, counting wounded marched forwards towards their first target; Yunguyo.

 

----

"Sarge'" Leon was an ex-ganger, when the Church outlawed gangs, he found himself amidst a sea of nothingness. The gang was all he knew, that was until a recruitment officer asked him to stop by. From that point forward, he was a soldier. His gun made him feel at home, but death.. He'd never grown used to it. Dead brother after Dead brother saw Leon alone and here in the Marines, he'd found brothers again. No not of blood, but brothers in arms, he's sworn to himself he'd die for each and every one of them.

 

He died fulfilling that promise.

 

The sudden blurt of Machine guns hidden within the forest ended short the lives of Leon, Castor and Harmon. They never had a chance as their comrades were painted with the bodies of their fallen brothers. Samuel Robles didn't do what his training said, he didn't do what common sense said.

 

He ran.

 

Not away from the fight but to it, scooping up his fallen brothers, Sam pulled Leon into a ditch then he went back for Castor, and then Harmon. Hiding behind was cover they had purchased the surviving members of the squad firing blindly into the direction of their ambushers. The remainder of the 3rd joined in. It was seconds. Minutes? Time escaped Sam, as did any sense of the world around him, only his gun sight and the enemy existed. He eased his hand over the trigger. The hammer flew back three times, and a Machine Gun emplacement was silenced. He locked onto the next Machine Gun emplacement and fired controlled bursts, the first smacking into the trees, and the second going wide.

 

His vision failed as a mortar hammered right behind him killing half a squad of brave young men in the blink of an eye.

 

"MORTARS!" he screamed, blinded by dirt that had been kicked up into his eyes. The shells fell almost simultaneously with his cry, but were met with the cohesive firing of the 1st armored division who even through the falling mortar shells advanced. Their training had made them so aware of their surroundings that the tanks themselves were merely extensions of the crews' body, and their accuracy proved it. Shot after shot hammered into gun nest and mortar sites, proving the steele of the 1st while emboldening the boys of the 3rd who charged after their advancing armor. Seemingly invincible, they overran each and every enemy target.

 

It was their first victory since the Ambush in Copacabana, and they reveled in it. When the dead of night came, the dead were counted and buried along the road. Marked only by their guns and helmets propped up as makeshift graves. Sam stood next to the Sergeant who knelt in front of the graves.

 

" Twenty eight dead.." mumbled Sergeant Lucena as he picked up dirt and stones, casting them down. Rain began to fall as the weight that sat on the shoulders of the 3rd became more evident. Sam looked around to see bloodied boys, broken men and lost souls all. "Lord please.. Bring us home"

Entry two: Sam Robles

 

 

The victory was transmitted back to C&C at Tarija, an ambush in the forests surrounding Yunguyo had claimed twenty eight more United Bolivian lives, but had broken through a fortified area that had been heavily controlled by the renegades. The boys of the 3rd would be ordered to advance again, despite losses to capture Yunguyo from the renegade forces. A city that was heavily guarded by at least 20 armor pieces and gun nests. It wasn't a cakewalk, this would be a siege, the first in United Bolivian History.

 

The command would come at 7:40 pm CST, from the General himself, who'd taken control of the theatre. He'd ordered two heavy artillery brigades and soldiers from the UBA, the 1st heavy infantry corps had been committed to this war. The renegades too had committed more men. As dissidents and political enemies of the General too fled to Peru, the White Consul army swelled, going from a few hundred to a few thousand within a fortnight.

 

The situation was escalating to a cauldron of war that couldn't be evaded. The annexation of Peru would begin with each inch that would be born of fire and blood by the Armed Forces of United Bolivia.

 

----

 

The amber light pierced the jungle like arrows through mail, falling softly on Samuels face. Opening his eyes, the true devastation of war sank in. Burned out tanks and crumbling concrete nests dotted the ashen jungle. It was eerily silent when the orders came in from United Bolivia. They'd be reinforced by the Army, this wasn't going to be just a hunt as the General declared war on the renegades and the entirety of their reach.

 

The muster took five minutes, and the soldiers of the 3rd were on the march again. Yunguyo only ten klicks out, was emblazoned with all the color of the sun. It was a glorious sight in one day, but the white consuls had perverted it into a seething hive of damnation. It was here that the crucible began, and the men knew it.

 

Two days passed and silence sang its voided melodies.

 

The men of the Army arrived without welcome, their big guns arrived the following hour.

 

On the third day Yunguyo fell.

 

What happened that day of fire is perhaps ingrained only in the memories of my brothers in arms. I know today that big guns never tire, and I know that many brothers in arms fell short of Yunguyo. However when the United Bolivian Colours flew over Yunguyo that evening, we knew that their deaths were not in vain. We buried them with their guns.

 

Looking up from his journal Sergeant Lucena who stood hand outstretched to the young soldier. "Lord protects" thought Robles as he stood firmly grasping his Sergeant's hand.

 

"So.." the word spoke an entire lifetime in the sullen look that passed between the two men. War had brought young soldiers together and made them men.

"Yeah.. I know.." replied Lucena as he turned around to occupied Yunguyo surveying the utter obliteration that the army's siege batteries had caused. This was a step along the path to winning the war.

 

"We've got orders Sarge'.." a small leaflet passed the bloodied dirty hands of the two soldiers, with a sigh of relief, Lucena's ashen face cracked a smile, showing his white teeth. He let off his gun, setting it down amongst the makeshift bedding and stretched.

 

"You know what this means?.." the question was direct and honest, with a shrug of his shoulders Sarge pulled his Kevlar over his face mumbling from under the helmet.

 

It means people can bend freedom six ways to sunday.

Entry three: Cardinal Oleis

 

The make-shift command center wasn't the best, that was for damn sure. Nor was the situation favorable in less than a week Yunguyo had fallen, along with the majority of the Puno territory. The U.R.B. forces were systematically destroying the white consul renegades, and Oleis knew that if they failed to hold them in Juliaca that Lima and Cusco would be their last bastions of strength. Even then "bastion of strength" meant a few hundred soldiers in cement defenses with limited arty' and heavy support.

 

Oleis picked up his secure line and dialed to the frontline commanders of the white consuls', praying for Good news. Through the decoder he found his prayer answered. The sustained barrage of Copacabana had utterly destroyed nearly four companies as they disembarked to join to forward march. It wasn't as good as halting the advance altogether but it did deny the U.R.B. coalition its relief forces and eased the tension that was building within the ranks of the white consul army. The next battle was dawning and Oleis knew this would be one of the crucial moments in denying the false Government of the U.R.B. The men were in place, the largest host of white consuls' assembled ever, nearly three thousand soldiers sat in fortified positions and concrete bunkers in and around Juliaca. Armed to the teeth these bastards rose the flag of the white consul army high above Juliaca as an insult to the U.R.B. that no matter where they marched the white consuls' would die to the last opposing them.

 

bunkers.jpg

 

----------

 

In the  U.R.B. Camp the march hadn't slowed at all, city after city, village after village, town after town the U.R.B. Forces rooted out the white consuls with heavy losses. So much so that an additional detachment of the Army had to come as relief. Much to the dismay of the front-line loyalists, their reinforcements were snuffed out like candle light by sustained barrage from the far off arty' sites, controlled by the white consuls'. The only other feasible options were to send them by foot through Puno territory to hit Juliaca with a pincer, though this would leave the south coalition grossly undermanned.

 

With no clear solutions to reinforcing the south coalition; the plan to use aerial assaults was drafted. Five F-22 Raptors would escort bombers to targets within Peru in the coming weeks. To minimize civilian casualties, the populace would be warned by pamphlets dropped by air into marked locations, those who fled north would be saved and relocated post war, those who stayed did so of their own choice.

 

Originally the usage of bombers had been ousted by Cassio on day 1, who shunned the usage of such explosive force against anywhere civilians could be caught in the after effects. But this had come to that, and the reality of war was there would be civilian casualties. Copacabana, a U.R.B. city, had been shelled to oblivion, its civilian population culled 40% in one week despite the hasty evacuation. Now the gains outweighed the cost. To root out the white consuls, their bastions needed to break, their soldiers needed to rout, all their world had to fall around them for victory to be achievable.. Cassio knew this, and so with heavy heart, he authorized the usage of one of the weapons projects the Fac11 had completed, the MOAB-1, its destination Juliaca.

Upon receiving permission from the United Republic of Bolivia, President Jose Gomez authorized the 5th Army Special Operations Group Air Assault Battalion of 500 men on 3 C-17s escorted by F-35 into Peru and to take the ILO Airfield.

 

Once on the ground, the soldiers were to secure the airfield and a nearby city as a base of operations for the incoming Marine Task Force.

 

110916-F-TK607-001.JPG

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Upon landing at the airfield, battlefield commanders reported little resistance and quickly established air traffic control to allow troop transport aircraft to land with combat-ready marines.

 

The 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade would be first to be deployed to the area, with UH-60 Seahawks, Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion, and Bell AH-1Z Vipers flying in from Marine Air Station Blue Lake.

 

C-17s would fly in Marine ground forces, while C-5 Galaxies flew in MRAPS for infantry transport.

Simultaneously coordinated with the Paraguayan capture of Ilo Airfield, a 200 man ranger unit would para-drop behind enemy lines at  Abanca Airfield. Carried by C-17's their first objective would be highlighted as Abanca and Abanca airfield, a supposed monitor force of 20-50 renegades expected.

 

Once landed they'd capture the city they'd begin S&D missions within the hot zone while the 1st Marine Army would land behind them.

 

paratrooper-pictures.jpg?w=300&h=237

 

The ranger commander reporting low resistance after having captured Abanca proceeded to Cusco while the 1st Marine Army would begin deployment alongside three half companies of Type-4 battle tanks. To augment the Marine Army further, reaper drones would begin S&D missions high over Peru, looking for targets of value, while relieving the stress from the south coalition.

 

 

Uh-64 Squadrons would scramble out of Oruro Airbase to assist the 8th Ranger company as they fought their way into Cusco. With the final debate chosen the city of Juliaca would be bombed apart by the B-1B Lancers carrying the prototype MOAB bomblets before peeling back to Oruro Airbase. The 13th Ranger company would drop directly onto the Artillery pieces that'd been shelling the south coalition to silence the guns that had killed 70,000,000+ Bolivian civilians.

Once the airfield was secure, transport aircraft began flying in marines from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade, a total of 10,000 combat ready marines. It is expected that the majority of this force, with support staff and equipment, will arrive within the next 3 days. Another 1-2 Marine Expeditionary Brigades are expected to arrive to support the task force within the next couple months.
 
The plan is the shift the entire Marine Corps into the area, since ILO, Peru will be the HQ of the Navy and Marines of Paraguay. Once the 1st MEB arrives in its entirety, then military ops will commence in southern Peru.
 
President Jose Gomez has appointed Brigadier General Ciro Amado, Commander of the 1st MEB, as the overall Marine Task Force Commander.

Abanca Airbase

 

With the capture of Abanca Airbase the remainder of the 1st Marine army would drop into Peru in the following weeks. Split into two task forces, one under Commander Perrault, and the other under Commander Calason, they'd proceed to put down the civil war with the aid of Paraguayan forces to the South. A detachment of 5 multirole F-15's would move into Abanca to further drive a wedge between any renegades to the North and those trapped in the noose of Paraguayan-Bolivian forces.

 

With the successful capture of renegade artillery that'd been shelling Copacabana, the 8th Ranger company would be airlifted back to Abanca for debriefing before being sent out again, this time north into Lima and its immediates. The 13th Ranger company would move into Cusco on orders to shoot on sight any renegade forces, no quarter was to be given. The Bombing of Juliaca was also to commence fairly soon with the B-1B Lancers having made it to Abanca safely and without issue.

All support units and the entire 1st MEB finally arrived at what has now been designated as Air Base Salvo. With these units in place, military operations will commence within the hour. The plan is for the 1st and 2nd Marine Expeditionary Units to proceed to the Moquegua District and start pushing all the enemy combatants north. This is the same for the 3rd and 4th Marine Expeditionary Units who will enter the Tacna District. The 5th Marine Expeditionary Unit will go south and secure the southern coastline of Peru. Most units will utilize the MRAP infantry transport vehicle, however the 5th MEU will use the Assault Amphibious Vehicle. It is expected that heavy resistance will be more towards the northern parts of the districts and that it will take about 1-2 weeks for the MEUs to complete their assigned tasks.

With a two week timeline the Marines of 1st Battalion would be tasked with the seizure of Ayacucho, Nazca and Ica. Medium to Low resistance expected over the entirety of the districts; Ica and Ayacucho. Secondary objectives would be the seizure of all the Ica coastline and proceeding north to aid the 8th Ranger Company in capturing Lima District. The 2nd Battalion would be tasked with following after the 13th Rangers into Cusco district. The expected resistance would be heavy and so UH-64 strike teams would be added to the force organization along with a multi-role squadron of F-15's.

 

8th Company Rangers would be tasked with capturing Lima city and Lima Airfields before proceeding to Junin district under arms of Commander Perrault and the 1st Battalion. While the 13th Rangers would scout ahead for Commander Calason and the 2nd Battalion.

Recent headway in the Peruvian territory has led to breakthrough and seizure of multiple territories within Peru. The seizure of Lima, and Ayacucho has led to the stabilization of the area. Commander Perrault along with 8th Company Rangers have began raids within known renegade territory of Ica. Plans to draw new forces to the area are being implemented as the renegade grip is broken apart by the joint forces of Paraguay and Bolivia.

As the situation begins to stabilize somewhat an additional 20,000 boots will hit the Ayacucho airfield to begin the induction into what will soon become part the United Republic of Bolivia.

The 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade of 10,000 combat marines have successfully crushed most resistance in the Moquegua and Tacna Districts. All marine units have been ordered to halt all advances and to maintain law and order within their region and to support the local population to rebuild the infrastructure.

 

Marine air support units have begun to move into Air Base Salvo and will set up a permanent installation their. All marine bases in Paraguay are scheduled to be shut down and all components will move to the new territory to assist in the military action plan and to have a permanent presence in the region.

 

President Jose Gomez has also ordered the 2nd and 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade to the region to prepare to begin military operations in central Peru in conjunction with their Bolivian counterparts.

The Federal Hierarchy of Amazonia has stood by and watched this senseless conflict rage on for far too long. The unlawful invasion of Bolivia into Peru-- sovereign territory of the SAO-- is not tolerable, and has led to the demise of seven thousand innocent civilians due to the handling of the conflict by Bolivia and Paraguay-- two nascent nations with a strong lack of experience in dealing with such issues. Bolivia and Paraguay will withdraw from the combat zone and instead allow a coalition of SAO nations to restore peace to Peru and bring these 'Cardinals' to justice.

In anticipation of the impending mlitary action, the Federal military was mobilised: the First Division of the Federal Marine Force, totalling twenty five thousand soldiers, was readied for action, as was transport to bear them across SAO territory to the warzone to put down the Cardinals' insurrection once and for all.

We thank you for your concern, however it has been denied wholesale. Please inform the 'Premier' and 'Executor Valerde' that Federale intervention won't be accepted. While we recognize your concern for the civilian deaths, the exact number and magnitude of deaths is completely classified, the deaths being Bolivian as well. These Cardinals are Bolivian citizens and thus will be hunted by Bolivian Armies.
 
Ultimately we are denying you on the grounds that while you are brothers who share ancestry and bondage, you are not Bolivian nor Allied. If you plan on moving an entire division into Paraguay, feel free to accompany either Commander Perrault or Commander Calason in stabilizing the annexed territory. However you will not be in command of this closing theatre. There are nearly Forty-thousand Bolivian soldiers in Peru and so a withdrawal is out of the question indefinitely. Again, we thank you for your concern and wish that first contact between our countries would've came on better occasion.
 
Sincerely,
General Ortan Cassio

"That was not a request. Bolivia and Paraguay have twenty four hours to begin withdrawing their soldiers from sovereign SAO territory. Your unlawful excursion will no longer be tolerated. When Bolivian and Paraguayan forces have departed the territory, Federal forces will aid SAO personnel in re-establishing SAO control of Peru. It will not become a Bolivian territory."

Two further divisions of Federal Marines were prepared for combat, as well as the First and Second Air Forces and the Federal Navy in the event that aggressive action against Paraguay or Bolivia proved necessary. Military satellites began to focus in on the affected territory to map out key insurgent hold outs for targetting by drone campaigns, and Global Hawk UAVs launched from Federal stations for Peru-- these drones were to soar 60,000 feet over the ground, surveying the situation with high resolution synthetic aperture radar and long-range electro-optical/infrared sensors.

 

Furthermore, the Federal Hierarchy made an announcement in which it called upon other SAO nations to take preventive action against Bolivia's annexation of the territory without evidence of any attempt to gauge the populace's own interests, and certainly without request to the SAO.

Due to the past excursions into SAO territory to root out terrorists the Republica was overlooking Bolivia's particular incident. With the intervention of Amazonia senior officers of the Army decided throw the Republica's weight behind Amazonia to quicken the end to the conflict. Republica military would be put on high alert and ready to move should the need arise. Intelligence gathering assets made their way over the conflict area as well as the territories of Paraguay and Bolivia asking to coordinate with Amazonian assets to avoid conflict and optimize scanning ranges. Three divisions of Republica army troops would be readied at bases around the Republica-Paraguay and Bolivian border backed up by two mechanized divisions and three squadrons of multi-purpose fighters.

With recent outcries from fellow SAO nations and possible military intervention, President Jose Gomez has decided to raise the alert level to DEFCON 2 and to have 5 squadrons of F-22 to fly to Air Base Salvo for air protection while contemplating the possibility of removal of Paraguayan marine forces.

President Gomez was expected to have a formal desicion later today and called on Bolivia and other SAO nations to hold on military action so as to end this conflict quickly and peacefully.

With tensions high, President Jose Gomez has cancelled the orders of the 2nd and 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigades and has ordered all marine units in Peru to come back to Air Base Salvo (ILO, Peru) immediately.

President Gomez has also dispatched Secretary of State Celestina Scavo to the region to talk with military commanders, Bolivian officials, and local community leaders. He has also offered the SAO the following compromise: we will withdraw all military forces and halt all military action in exchange for the permanent settlement of Paraguayan forces on Air Base Salvo and ILO, Peru. He also agreed to a $500 million program to assist local communities rebuild and to mend broken ties with local civic leaders.

The compromise was rejected, given Paraguay was in no position to negotiate over its participation in an aggressive invasion of sovereign SAO territory, but the arrival of Secretary Scavo to mend relations with local administrations in the wake of strained relations was seen as a promising olive branch and an encouraging sign that perhaps it would not need to come down to further violence.

Bolivia and Paraguay should be ashamed for the indiscriminate slaughter they have unleashed in Peru. Non-combatants, especially children, should be protected as much as possible from the horrors of war. -Deputy Prime Minister Kropotkin.

 

Russia should keep to itself and be reminded that the civilian deaths were Bolivian, and that there has been no indiscriminate slaughter in Peru and to go on such accounts is pure idiocy.

In the 21st century there is no "keeping to oneself." We live in a world where everything and everyone is connected. Moreover we believe the rights of free nations should be respected and that the lives of innocent civilians have worth. No, we will not remain silent while freedom is squashed and tyrants run rampant.
