American Protection

Recommended Posts

One-hundred thousand soldiers of the National Guard from various States, with leadership from Texas, were mobilized and deployed to the Eastern border of the Plains Federation unless the President disapproved of the action. In order to fulfill their treaty in the "American Conference", the National Guard would immediately begin moving into the former protectorate which was a buffer between the United States and the Plains Federation. The entire protectorate which the United States held, which includes Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee was occupied. The States of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida were also directly occupied by Federation forces including National Guardsmen deployed from the Florida Keys.

 

The remaining States of the former United States would see Federation soldiers (National Guardsmen) enter but a bit of help would be nice. Deputy Secretary of State Ireland would send the following message to the Principality of Tikal.

 

To His Majesty Prince Chak Tok Ich'aak of The Principality of Tikal

From Deputy Secretary of State Samuel Ireland of The Plains Federation

 

 

Your Majesty,

 

The United States has sadly fallen, be it domestic instability or foreign espionage I do not know but the President wanted our closest ally in Tikal to know before anyone else. Currently, 100,000 Federation National Guardsmen are moving into the former American lands. We can secure Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. The remaining States in the North East we can reach, however we would like assistance for these from the Principality military. 

 

We do not think a permanent military presence is required in the former American States, but right after this fall it would be a good idea to secure any and all WMDs and military facilities/weaponry and to keep the public safe. Right now, Special Forces are heading to Washington D.C. where they'll be securing the Pentagon, Capital Building, and the White House and other important governing structures.

Deputy Secretary of State

Topic: Re: United States

 

Body:

 

Deputy Secretary Ireland,

 

first let me thank you in the name of Their Majesties for informing us of your actions in regards to the USA.

 

His Eternal Highness asked me to inform you that Tikal will commit 8 full divisions to peacekeeping operations in the central and northern US states with a focus around New York State, being the most populous. We will of course work to secure all WMD from the US, and see if we can find files and data on possible secret programmes that they initiated. Nobody wants chemical or bioweapons to go missing, after all.

 

Your SpecOps in D.C. are likely encounter a Hilario Chi Canul, former Ambassador to the United States. He informed us that at the time he is trying to keep some US Senators from going rogue in an attempt to usurp the US government after this sudden collapse. We do not believe the threat from them to be serious, but we would advise on securing the men and women in question for the time being, until we can be sure all WMD are removed and the military forces have been disarmed.

 

If there is anything else that you believe should be addressed, please inform me or one of Their Highnesses of it.

 

With great regards,

 

By the authority vested in me by Their Sublime Highnesses

Director of Diplomacy,

Clemente Marroquín Rojas

Principality of Tikal

While Rojas was typing up the message, the promised forces went en route to the US, accompanied by the fleet 'Belize Command', whose task was to prevent US war vessels from being hijacked. In Hawaii, Tikalian forces quickly moved into the base Hilo, informing the troops there of their nation's fate. The secured military vessels would in time be brought into massive shipyards around the Nicaragua and Panama canals to be dismantled and recycled, unless one of Tikal's allies wished to purchase some.

 

The Palaven Empire would be informed of the situation as well, and given the recommendation to take the San Diego base over.

President Reece signed off on the actions surrounding the protection of the old US territories, stating, "Though we have no idea as to the cause of this apparent collapse, as fellow North Americans and neighbors it is our duty to do everything in our power to help the citizens of the former US in any way we can."

Capital cities of the States were the first to be occupied. Local police authorities were organized to help keep citizens in check while the National Guard protected nuclear power stations and military outposts with dangerous weapons. Local government officials would be accounted for but would be allowed to conduct their daily buisness as long as it was not inhibiting the military. New York City would see soldiers from the Plains Federation, Tikal, and Baffin Island. Tikal would be expected to take the lead in the northern States however a significant number of Federation troops remained in the north as well. 

 

In Washington D.C. special forces arrived before the National Guard had even made it to Kentucky. Washington D.C. was closed off while the congress was being accounted for. The Pentagon was also closed off and all classified documents/databases were to be copied and sent to the Octagon for analysis. Any information regarding WMDs would be shared immediately with Tikal.

Tikalian forces landed by sea in New York, New Jersey and the surrounding states, quickly establishing outposts at key locations. Security would be relatively high until all weapons caches had been located. Luckily, no hints in regards to Bio/Chem weapons had been found yet, and it did indeed appear that the US had been 'clean', as it were.

 

All already known locations of nuclear weaponry were secured by entire battalions of mechanised infantry to ensure that nothing went missing.

 

A small group of forces made its way to Greenland to re-secure the area for Tikal's protectorate. Iceland had fallen after all, and Thule base had been part of the US. Keeping these areas unobserved was not likely to end well.

 

Meanwhile, former Ambassador Chi Canul made contact with the DC special forces, leading them into the basement of a bar where he had managed to restrain two of the seven 'conspirators' as he called them. Among the ones still at large were apparently former Chief of Staff John Oliver, former Secretary of Homeland Security Matthew Walker and former Senators Kendall Savannah, Jonathan Boquet. The ones restrained in the basement were former Senators Tristan Rydell, Rafael Kinton and Katharine Milham.

Special Forces who landed in Washington D.C. would immediately head towards the bar ironically not too far from the Capitol Building. Once inside they would apprehend the suspects and bring the ambassador to the White House where the headquarters for military operations in the North East was set up. The American flag was respectfully lowered and put away. The Texas National Guardsmen at the White House respectfully lowered the American flag from the top of it and temporarily raised a Texas flag; some of the Texas Guardsmen posed on the front lawn and toke a picture with the flag over the White House in the background. It was promptly sent to Governor Sparks back in Austin who was very amused. The Federation flag was raised over the White House shortly after, which was the same for all other government buildings. The ambassadors of foreign nations would be offered free commercial flights back to their home countries or they could go home on their own accord. The Tikalian ambassador would be invited to stay in the Lincoln bedroom and could leave whenever they wished.

 

The entire operation was kept secret while forces began taking over Washington D.C., Alexandria, and other areas around. Members of congress were being tracked down and questioned as to the whereabouts of other members. Everyone would of course be treated with dignity but the situation was being taken very seriously. 

 

Meanwhile in New York City, thousands of soldiers marched down Times Square. Most of the city was timid amid the fall of the American government, but looting was taking place in other parts of the city. The NYPD was having trouble, even with their large numbers and weaponry, to stop the amount of crime since recent power failures and food shortages. The NYPD would be given additional lethal and non-lethal weapons. Small riots broke out when Federations troops arrived but they quickly began to slow down when the Federation started utilizing tear gas and putting dozens of people under military arrest which emphasized they did not have their constitutional rights. 

 

The mayor and governor of New York City and New York State were asked to keep the populace calm while law and order was restored. An international message was sent out that for the time being all international trade with the former United States was closed, including the Port of New York and New Jersey, until the entire area was secured and under governance again (estimated to be one to two weeks). Any foreign citizens would be given safe haven at non-essential government buildings and their governments would be contacted.
