WAR ERUPTS IN EUROPE

Today, the situation in Europe took a turn to war. After several declarations of war from several nations on Greater Nordland notably the Northern Empire and Rebel Army, a landing on Greater Nordland shores was attempted by Northern Empire forces. The landings were repulsed with heavy losses and the supporting ships were forced to retreat.

Nations such as Transvaal have declared their neutrality to protect themselves from the war now spreading through Europe. With reports from the eastern area of Europe suggest that the Slavorussian Empire could be a target for the Kaisers army, the war could get even more deadly.

Updates on this will come soon.

OOC: It's the United States of North America plus I'm not attacking Greater Nordland. I'm attacking the Northern Empire invasion fleet. ;)

News Flash-Colstream closes borders

The Colstream Border under orders from the Colstream Government has been closed to all traffic in and out of the country. In a statement just minutes ago, the Colstream President has confirmed the order and has affirmed the governments neutrality, despite calls from some Parliament Ministers to side with the Northern Empire against Nordland.

President Jack Browning said "We wish to not get involved. Europes problems are the European nations problems. We are only concerned with problems in South America and inside Colstream. If the Europeans want to fight amonst themselves like schoolchildren in a playground then let them. We will distance ourselves from this war as much as we can and protect ourselves from a nuclear attack."

More on this as it comes in.

European War Update:

With the start of Rebel Army's air campaign over the Slavorussian Empire, the war has entered the eastern expanses of Europe. Border areas have been strafed by Rebel Air Force aircraft and reports suggest that also targets inside the Slavorussian Empire has also been targeted.

Also Nova Roman aircraft have started bombing targets around the southern area of the Slavorussian Empire, with large raids on military targets and Rostov and Volgograd. Heavy civilian losses have been reported and heavy smoke is billowing from both cities. Also "Operation Volga" has been launched by the Nova Roman military to capture Rostov and Volgograd and seize the southern region.

Nordland armor and infantry have also started a ground campaign against the Slavorussian Empire, who now has forces streaming from the west and south.

Today in the Colstream Capital Ashland, President Jack Browning has rejected another call from opposition members to side with the Northern Empire, stating that "Colstream is within range of nuclear rockets in Europe. Also since Nova Roma who is sided with Greater Nordland is considered an ally by the Colstream Government and with Lubeck and Nova Imperium who is siding with the Northern Empire, Colstream is forced to maintain neutrality and would only enter the war if South America is targeted."

More news coming later.

This test comes as fighting in Europe intensifies after the Nordland and Nova Roman invasions of the Slavorussian Empire. A Colstream Military spokesman has said that "this test is not a provocation to the European states and not an aggressive action by the Republic Of Colstream's armed forces.

The test was a success as the missile hit its projected target 20 minutes ago. This weapon will be installed into Missile Sites all over Colstream.

European War Upadate

72 hour ceasefire

A 72 hour ceasefire has been brokered today by both sides in the current European conflict. It is still unknown whether the ceasefire will hold, but has for the moment lowered the tension surrounding the conflict. President Jack Browning has made no comment on the ceasefire but a military analyst has said that "this 72 hour ceasefire is just a tool to regroup and reinforce the soldiers on the frontline. I expect that after the ceasefire, the battles will be vicious and each side will take many casualties."

Inside Colstream, tensions are still high as Colstream soldiers still prepare to defend their homeland despite the current ceasefire. Military leaders have ordered many defensive positions built on all beaches with the civilian population prohibited from being within a mile of the coastline.

Quite some time ago, Colstream applied for an embassy in Endor Cuidad, however, it seems on of our administrative aids misplaced the request and it was found today as he was cleaning out his desk after being fired for sloppy management (ooc:periods of inactivity). Minister Mickey Bethesda would like to go forward with the Embassy Establishment, but wants to make sure that it is still the desire of the Colstream Republic to enter Endor Cuidad. As such, we are also interested in sending a diplomatic team to your capital for Embassy Establishment.

We would still like an embassy in Endor Cuidad. You can send in a diplomatic team immediately. (OOC: i've had little time to create an embassy thread yet but will do in tomorrow)
