Rise of the Republica

OOC: Voodoo's last post was on october 25th from what I can find

 

IC:

 

Argentina, the last major South American power besides the Republica itself, has fallen into Anarchy. With that, the majority of the South American Protectorate is now controlled by the Republica. With no more major member states the Republica officially dissolves the South American Organization and takes the Protectorates under the name of the Republica. The official Doctrine is below.

 


The Republica claims ownership of all South American lands except for those already owned by sovereign states such as Bolivia, Paraguay, and Gran Colombia. The land for the most part shall be put under a protectorate.

 

Annexations by the Republica include the provinces of Rondonia, Mato Grosso, Para, Amapa, and Maranhao. This is to compensate for the amount of Territory the Republica must now govern on its own, as well as to answer the call of citizens in those territories who wish to join the Republica proper.

 

Should a Sovereign state of South America fall into anarchy the Republcia will take it's land under protectorate status and await a new state to rise.

 

Bolivia is the sole exception, it's fate is to be determined by the UN/Security Council members.

 

Protectorates are to be held to the standard of Republica living. If a nation wishes to take the land they must be able to provide the same standard of living the Republica would. Excpetions can be made if they are willing to let the Republica help them achieve this standard.

 

Should a nation of South America become a nuisance like the Bolivian's, the Republica will not hesitate to declare war on the offending state. If any nation has any trouble with a South American nation it merely need to bring the offense to the Republica's attention if it hasn't gathered it already (I can't read every thread :/) and the Republica will take care of it. Should it require the intervention of the Security Council the Republica will provide everything in its power to aid the SC in its executions. 

 

The South American Organization is no more. It has proven ineffective too many times and has outlived its purpose. In its place we will create the South American Forum. The Forum will be a place where Nations of South America can gather peacefully to discuss politics and other issues such as petitioning for Republica Protectorate land and other things. Its goal is to promote a more united community in South America and to prevent rouge nations from arising. The South American Security Council seat on the UN will be elected from this forum.

"You can't be serious.", Officer Nishimura yelled at his superior. For once he forgot the chain of cammand, as he received his orders from Ozawa. "I am serious. The Kaiheitai will move to secure the Bolivian littoral." Nishimura breated heavily. "But Lt. General, isn't this claimed by..." Ozawa's piercing glare came to rest upon Nishimura as the greyed beard of the general shook and he cut of Nishimura. "There was no claim. If there was, they can take it up with whomever afterwards. But we ought to secure the coast now!" "This is not within the mandate!" "As if anything here is now regulated by any mandate... It's beneath the heavens, so it is part of the Emperors mandate. Now go seize it or I'll have you court-martialed." Nishimura shook his head. "I just hope that this will not cost us dearly."

Ozawa however merely took out a map of the continent. With one swift stroke from the Bolivian border, the Littoral was theirs. This was just about as legitimate as any other claim to Ozawa, but at the end of the day... facts had been created and at home they would no longer be able to ignore the issue at hand. If this succeeded, the access to the Sea was secure, travel from and to Sendai was then possible without interference. If he failed... he would at least have gone down with dignity in the service of the Emperor, he thought.

[hr]

Within hours, the Kaiheitai was on the march to cross the border, in order to occupy the Bolivian Littoral, or what they perceived as it. A column of Type 10 MBTs and Type 89 IFVs rolled along the streets towards Antofagasta, to occupy the town, before any other party could reach it. Soldiers would occupy administrative buildings and military police would try to organise the continuation of normal life, as far as this was possible. This meddling was maybe a dangerous gambit, but it was one that the overly eager General Ozawa Rentaro made.

OOC: Quoted so you have it here too.

Due to how recent Argentina fell the Republica did not yet have resources in the area of Chile. However the Republica has a good history of deploying mass troops very rapidly. Once it was seen that Dai-Tohoku forces were moving into the protectorate Generals assumed the worst and mobilized the Army and Air Force immediately. UAV and satellite assets would judge the size and type of Japanese forces as well as general locations. 50,000 troops immediately moved into the country of Argentina via helicopter, VTOL troop carriers, and light armored ground vehicles, with the goal of securing the border between Argentina and the territories the Japanese occupied. Another 50,000 were readied on the Republica-Bolivia border should the Dao-Tohoku wish to take action there. Two divisions of armored vehicles (Mostly MBT's, with a mix of mobile AA assets and heavy troop carriers) mobilized with them, and ten squadrons of multi-purpose aircraft were scrambled from the mainland.

 

Fortunately for the Japanese the Chancellor hesitated in declaring war for their unwarranted actions. Instead he sent them a message via diplomatic channels.

 

What is the meaning of your invasion of Republica territory? Do you wish to start an unnecessary war? If your concerns are reasonable I may consider pulling back my troops, but we will take this matter to the UN.

The soldiers would slowly move away from the border, instead positioning themselves further north, around Iquique and across the border of Bolivia and the Bolivian Littoral. Orders had arrived from Sendai to allow for some deescalation and to just remove the actual presence of heavy armament from most of the contested lands. Still, the Keimutai would stay behind, in order to protect the social peace as military police. Secretely, also several dozen military intelligence personal would stay icognito behind, to observe the front lines for Republica activities.

 

Foreces now stationed in the rear would set up their positions in the mountains, started digging trenches and survey the land for reliable topographic information later. Air-defense units would deloy their equipment, partially covered by camouflage nets and natural foliage to not give away the own positions completely and defensive plans would be drawn up, should the Republica attempt to exploit the situation. F-2 fighter jets were made ready to scramble from air fields within Bolivia and Anti-shipping missiles were set up at the northern coastline, just in case.

 

While the bulk of the forces thus left the Bolivian Littoral, the colourful flag would still be standing high on every flagpole and a message would be sent to the Republica.
 

We see this as rightfully Bolivian territory. In accordance with our foreign policy, troops have been withdrawn. We have no ill intentions towards the Republica, but we won't bow to any threats. As I cannot allow any trespassing into our sovereign territory, we will treat any incursion by your forces as an act of aggression and I will then take measures to preserve the territorial integrity and safety of the lands and people entrusted to us by UN and the Emperor.

A message from His Excellency Archbishop Agustín Rodríguez of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Santa Cruz, Bolivia:
 

"My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

I urge all opposing parties to come to a peaceful agreement concerning the disputed lands of Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. The local people of my archdiocese, as well as those in surrounding dioceses wish to only be free to exercise their rights God alone has given to them. They wish to live in a land where they are not being the center point for military conflict, bombings, and militarization. His Holiness the late Pope Luke I strongly opposed military intervention by Bolivia and Paraguay in Peru and also opposed the nuclearization of Bolivia when such reports were made public. The majority of the Bolivian population is catholic and their well being is of great concern to the Church as well as non-Catholics alike. People in the disputed lands are still in need of humanitarian assistance and support. I would like to personally thank the Dai-Tohoku for providing law and order in the region, as I can see for myself the peace of mind it brings to the Bolivian people. The Paraguayan Agency for International Development (PAID) has also been helpful during these times, especially for providing much needed medical supplies to isolated villages.

 

I again urge for deescalation and for dialogue to occur that would include all concerning parties.

 

 

May Christ be with us now and forever,

 

His Excellency Agustín Rodríguez

Archbishop, Metropolitan Archdiocese of Santa Cruz

Once the border between Republica territory and Bolivian/Japanese territory had been secured the Generals would order the troops to pull back from the border and spread out throughout the territory. Republica Peacekeepers would set up offices in protectorate cities and evacuation routes were cleared in case war broke out to protect civilians. Aside from the increased presence of Republica troops and the threat of war looming overhead an attempt was made to keep life in the Protectorates as normal as possible. Troops close to the southern Bolvian border had been reduced to an amount of 20,000 with the majority of 30,000 taking up positions as a rear guard should Tianxian forces march. The eastern Bolivia Republica border mimicked these movements. In anticipation of the need to provide support two Carrier groups were moved to Buenos Aires and an additional two squadrons of fighters were now patrolling Argentinian skies.

 

To the north of Bolivia troops that has pulled out of Gran Colombia territory found themselves re-purposed to guard the northern front(Peru, Amazonia, and Rondonia). However since these divisions were more lightly armed and had less support from armored divisions they were ordered to take up more defensive positions a distance from the Bolivian border. In total these troops numbered around 20,000. An armored division was mobilized and started to make its way to these troops taking the long way around Bolivia to get to Peru. In all most of the Republica's movements were defensive ones.

 

 

Your argument that the land is Bolivian is dated. The UN never gave you mandate over the lands of Chile or better known recently as the lands of Argentina. Your actions have been that of a hostile regime much like the Bolivian state of old. However we will take your withdrawal of troops as a cessation of  hostilities for now. We invite you to voice your reasons for the invasion in the South American Forum or the UN if you prefer, to form your argument that you should be the rightful owner of those territories, and give us a good argument for why we should not reprimand you for your actions.

As long as the Republica would stay out of Bolivia including the Bolivian Littoral, the actions would merely be noted down by military observers. Travel between the new Bolivia and the Republica or its protectorates would be forbidden though, due to the threat of escalation still being fresh. Anyone trying to cross the border would be arrested and brought to the next Keimutai post, arrested till Sendai knew what to do with those.

 

We see no reason to be reprimanted, just as we see no reason how Brazileans got more authority over this territory than Bolivia. Your claim is not even dated, but just outright an insult and we see no reason to move unless ordered by the Emperor. Until then, we shall not move one shaku. If you want to argue take it to the Imperial Center and appeal your case.

-Kuroda Kojirō, Governor-General of Minami-Kechua

[b]Imperial Dispatch:[/b]

 

The Empire has implemented a no fly zone over Chile and Eastern Argentina.  Fighters off our carriers in the region will begin its immediate enforcement, any military attempt by Republica to change the status quo or move forces into the region will be met with force.  Republica cannot and will not be permitted to claim it wants a political solution, whilst moving military forces into the region.  It has 24 hours to withdraw and comply.

 

Let me make one thing perfectly clear.  Regional organizations stood up ad hoc, without any consultation or recognition by outside parties have no greater or less legitimacy, than any other claim.  To that end, it is the position of this government, that the Republica and its other partners cease their attempts to strong arm what cannot be strong armed.

 

You have our earlier instructions follow them.

 

Combat Air Patrols would be extended over the region, as would the SAM net created by the Tianxia surface fleets surface to air missile umbrella.

 

Two B-11 Bombers would fly a perimeter around the whole of Argentina in defiance of any rival claims to territory.

The Paraguayan State Department has issued a travel ban to Bolivia and Argentina due to recent hostilities. President Melosa Navar has also closed the National Airspace to all civilian and unauthorized military aircraft. She has also and closed the north, south, and west Land Port of Entries. The Paraguayan Ambassador to the Athenian Federation Madam Vanesa Razon would deliver the following message:

 

To: Athenian Government

From: Department of State

Subj: South American Hostilities

 

South America is currently experiencing land claims conflicts, as you are well aware of. We invite Athenian military observers and officials to Paraguay to gain a first hand experience of this conflict and act accordingly. If you so accept my department will make immediate preparations for your officials to land in San Tomas and have a meeting with top Paraguayan officials including President Melosa Navar. We look forward to your response.

The Republica's claim over the territory comes from it being the successor to the South American Organization, who previously held claim over that territory. As the head of that organization when it dissolved and the majority holder of assets in the SAO protectorates we believe that we hold much more claim to the territory than Tianxia does. You only recently became involved in South American politics when Bolivia went rouge and have only contributed to the state of Bolivia.

 

It is our belief that it is Tianxia who is trying to strong arm their way into South America. Why should the Republica, a long standing and respectable nation of South America, have to consult 'outside parties' in matters that have largely only included the Republica in the past? Why should your involvement in Bolivia give you free reign over the entirety South America? We've already stated our willingness to let the Dai Tohoku have the territories they want despite their actions.

 

Before your declarations Tianxia, the Republica and the Dai Tohoku had come to a Cease fire to discuss the terms of their getting the territory. Now you once again threaten escalation by trying to force us out of the region entirely! A region that for the most part we've been cultivating into a protectorate and not initiating hostilities? If the Republica is going to move out of the region we demand that Tianxia also completely remove its forces out of the region. Might we suggest a Neutral party come in to occupy the territory so neither side can claim ownership for now.

 

No orders as of yet were given for the Republica troops to retreat, only when the Tianxians agree to retreat from the territory as well would that order be issued. Should Tianxian forces be sighted they have been told to "Let them fire first." Only once Tianxia initiated hostilities would Republica forces return fire. Tactics of the Tianxians had been studied by Generals since the first incursion of Tianxia into South America, and counter measures were readied, though it was also well known that the Tianxians always had something else up their sleeve. With the deployment of Tianxian Aircraft into the area, Squadrons of Multi-purpose aircraft were shifted out for Air Superiority aircraft. Mobile AA assets were armed and readied as well.

Despite arguing in the Security Council the Athenian Federation would remain silent in public for now. However the Paraguayan invitation opened a great opportunity for some kind of compromise to be established still. 

 

Messages would be sent to Russia, the Republica, Paraguay, Tianxia and Dai Tohoku

Despite continued calls for a diplomatic solution by all parties involved the situation in South America has reached a state of near-war. In line with the charter of the United Nations and the principles of a healthy and peaceful international community this is an unacceptable situation. As such the Athenian Federation proposes the establishment of a Committee consisting of the Republica, Paraguay, Tianxia, Dai Tohoku, Russia and the Athenian Federation to investigate the causes of the current situation. This Committee would formulate a report and submit it to the Security Council in one year at which point its recommendations can be either adopted or rejected.

 

During the investigation the current status of territory will remain however UN observers will be allowed free access to all territory to guarantee fundamental freedoms and human rights.

 

We remind all parties that the UN Charter obligates members to seek pacific settlement of disputes as established under Chapter VI of the Charter.

"General Kuroda, we received news of some diplomatic offer.", his aide suddenly bursted into Kuroda's office. "This communique we just received from the Athenian Federation." Kuroda took the piece of paper presented to him. Slowly he read over the lines before him. As he finished, he looked up to his aide. "And?" "Well, isn't this a chance to talk about things?" Kuroda shook his head lightly. "I am not a diplomat, I am a general. I move and fight for my country, not for Athens and we shall attent negotiations when the Emperor thinks it wise to enter negotiations. Until you hear news from Beijing, everyone shall stay ready to defend this country on a moment's notice."

 

And a silence would be maintained for now.

Tianxia will not remove its forces from South America, our deadline remains firmly in place, and our forces remain ready to act.  We'll only agree to discussions on forming any sort of commission in the event that Republica stands down.  Further Tianxia firmly declares it does not recognize Republica as any sort of legitimate successor to the SAO.

 

Further Tianxia notes the alarming decision to contest the no fly zone, namely the usage of radars on air defense sites the Republica forces are attempting to move into the region.  SATINT indicates that there is preparing of aircraft as well.  Let us be clear, the no fly zone is in effect now.  Usage of either of these materials constitutes an escalatory act.

 

Should these not be withdrawn, they will be destroyed, this is the last warning immediately and not before the deadline for troop withdrawals.

"The Paraguayan government strongly condemns Tianxia for not pursuing diplomatic means to end this conflict. The government does however support the Athenian Federation's proposal and hopes it may be implemented immediately."

Reread our position.  We're willing to discuss the issue, only following the withdrawal of the Republica forces.  Your starting negotiating position is for us to give away the store then have us negotiate from a position of weakness.  This is unacceptable and insulting.

Very well, You may use the Horn of South America as a landing point for your troops. It is far enough away from the Republica proper that we feel safe with you there, however we must insist that the rest of the area be pledged to be empty of Tianxian forces before we remove ours.

Gran Colombia would silently watch, while keeping its military on alert. It had no desire to get involved in what was a fluid situation. Without warning all land crossing points out of the country would be sealed and no traffic allowed through. Anyone who attempted to query the Gran Colombia Department of Foreign Affairs about it would be told that the current situation meant that transit into Gran Colombia via land had been suspended.

Dai-Tōhoku would be willing to enter into negotiations, once a compromise between Tianxia and the Republica is reached. This is an imperial matter and thus negotiations without the rest of the Empire at the table would make no sense.

And now you insult us?  The Horn of South America has been an Imperial military installation for longer than your nation has been in existence.  We're permitted it us it now?  Last chance.

 

"If it is acceptable to Tianxia and the Republica the Athenian Federation is willing to take the place of the Republica forces to guarantee peace"

 

It is not.  As our ally you should know we're perfectly capable of doing this ourselves.

"You complain about being forced into a weakened negotiation position yet you insist on the Republica to weaken themselves, you are unwilling to move even an inch yet demand complete withdrawal. Even positions where you give in nothing and the Republica makes massive concessions is unacceptable. It seems obvious Tianxia is unwilling to act on its obligations under the Charter and seek a pacific settlement of the dispute"

Republica has zero additional claim to the lands in question, yet its claiming others are the aggressors.  We're laying out our position, take it or leave it.

"Indeed it doesn't, the Republica and Tianxia both lack a UN mandate or other legal basis to take possession of the land recently become lawless. This puts you two at the same negotiating position and as such it is fair to implement similar restrictions on both parties. The Republica is willing to make concessions, the ball is in your court. Negotiate or be in violation of international law"
