Global Alert: Druk Yul to Test Nuclear Warhead in Cocos Islands

Recommended Posts

This is formal notice to all global powers that Druk Yul will be initiating an underwater nuclear test in the center of the ring of the unclaimed and abandoned Cocos/Keeling islands in the Indian Ocean. The blast yield will be 5 megatons. Given there are no known occupants of the islands at this time and its ideal position far away from most land masses and prevailing winds and currents moving what little fallout there will be away from the islands, we will begin this test within 24 hours. Please divert any commercial flights from the at least a 50 kilometer radius of passing over the ignition point. An above ground test is usually scheduled once a decade and should not be repeated for some time. The islands will afterwards also be used to study fallout patterns.

 

 

##Top Secret, hidden location, bunker, highly restricted access.

At Space Com, Maelstrom and King Wangchuck looked at the monitors of all the satellites observing the islands. They didn't mention in the global news reports that they knew exactly who was there with all the activity going on in the region. But on several different monitors they were going to watch the party when hell was lit. Maelstrom grinned toothily. He had chosen a gilded dragon form today, but those green jade eyes, they never changed.

 

"This.. will be beautiful. Lets watch them run. Keep firing til one gets through.. if the first ARES gets shot down, we can always say we thought it was a dud and so tried another warhead. But first.. lets see if this gets their attention." The clock ticked.. in the meantime, Maelstrom sipped his fountain drink.

Thank you for the notice. Sri Lanka requests that your scientists provide us with their projected fallout estimates in reference to Sri Lanka. We trust that you would not put anyone in harm's way, however we would like to see the numbers laid out so we can make sure that ships are notified to stay away from projected fallout areas. It is our duty to ask this of you as the representatives of the people of Sri Lanka. Our number one priority is our safety - a quality I know we share.

The slaughter of innocent civilians and ecological damage for no discernable purpose is shocking.  Sparta is ordering its fleet back towards the Islands at full steam from a previous visit we have.  Should this test continue and 600 innocent people be in danger, we will send our courageous men and women to do everything we can to shoot down this missile.  Then we in concert with our allies will do what is necessary to prevent such a tragedy such as this from ever occuring again!

Mei knew what she had to do to halt this genocide. She knew what she had done before was wrong and knew this was her one chance to atone for what she threatened to do before. She might not be Empress of Shanghai anymore but she knew she had to do this no matter what. Her message to Maelstrom would be for all to hear:

 

"Maelstrom I must tell you to stop this madness at once. Less than a month ago I also threatened genocide even though it was never carried out and now you seem to be going down that same dark path that I did. I know now that what I did was wrong and now you are threatening to wipe out an entire culture just as I did. You said it yourself that things like this go against the SEATO treaty and you are no exception to those rules! You must stop this madness at once and stop all the nuclear tests outside of Druk Yul borders!"

 

After she sent that message Emperor Jesse would tell Tiger Squadron to get to the islands with their Shenyang J-16s which had weapons capable of shooting down ARES missiles. "Tiger squadron I dont need to tell how important this mission is and how dangerous it could be. Your orders are to shoot down the ARES missiles that Maelstrom is about to launch at the Cocos Islands. There are inhabitants of an entire island culture there and if the missiles hit they will be wiped out and we cannot let that happen! My mother almost made the same mistake before and I will be damned before we let him make the same mistake now! Maelstrom might even do his huge ghost form to try to stop you like he did with the Russians but you cannot let that distract you from you main mission to shoot down the ARES weapons. If he doesn't back down and tries to kill you than by all means you have permission to open fire and stop him no matter what!"

 

"We understand what is at stake sir. We will not fail you."

 

"Good luck to all of you. And Godspeed."

The Russian Empire finds this news alarming, following recent events in Europe we would have thought that gaining such weapons of mass destruction would be the last thing Druk Yul would want. perhaps Druk Yul feels the need to gain such weapons to feel that they can respond in kind if struck by such means? If this is so we worry even more for the Asian sphere as such thoughts and feelings put even more people at risk.

"So far as Druk Yul knew the islands were unoccupied with no government. We will conduct an aerial survey to ascertain whether there remains a civilian population on the islands and have suspended the test. Our last reports had the islands abandoned." As per their notifications, an archangel aircraft was scrambled for area overflight and began a detailed survey of the islands with their instruments."This is why we issue a global alert when we're intending a test."

 

A few hours later, "We are surprised an island this small and without governance is supporting this many people. We will begin humanitarian assistance because we doubt the agricultural systems on this island could even support such a population without governance."

 

 

##At Space Com in the bunker, private location.

As Sparta's fleets neared the island they would begin to be tracked by the ARES network. "Welp, there they are.. just as we thought. Lets see what they're up to other than responding to our bait."

"People normally look before they announce nuclear tests. We are very concerned by the irresponsible nuclear policies of Druk-Yul, which have potential to become a threat to global stability. We also cannot say that we are amuse to see Druk-Yul create a presence on these islands it almost tried to blow up, and we would recommend against these islands being attached in any permanent way to a regime that obviously could not care less about the people living on the Keeling islands."

"We've learned from this. We're going to start overflights of test regions before testing as standard protocol.  And Still, the safety measures worked. The response was anticipated. If someone knew of a problem, nations would voice there concerns. They did. Hardly irresponsible when it goes exactly as planned. Now that we know they are there.. we care about them very.. very much."

"Well, they are now. So you can stop worrying. By the way, if you have any recommendations on procedural improvements to our testing practices, we'll forward you our procedural manual and you can review and respond in kind and we'll update accordingly. We're always looking to add experience to our portfolio. We're going to start investigating the Egmont Atoll as an alternative testing area."

Message forwarded with Druk Yul testing protocols attached with new procedure added at top for overflight checks of areas as part of initial test prep.

We condemn any underwater or open air tests. The ocean has currents, and the introduction of radioactive elements affects us all. Any detonation not properly contained in bedrock is an assault on the health of our citizens, as well as the health of the world.

Emperor Jesse and Mei were relieved that Maelstrom listened to reason. Had he not Tiger Squadron would have probably shot down the missiles and anyone else that tried to stop them but luckily it seemed it would not come to that for now. Jesse would tell them to remain on alert in case they did decide to test the missile anyways but so far it looked like the potential disaster was averted.

Several environmentalist groups in the Federation have protested to Druk Yul that it should better consider the ecological damage done to the area before proceeding with the test, and perhaps stick to underground detonations in the future.
