Operation "Herkules"

The situation in Europe was once again turning hot. Intelligence, from the Reich Intelligence Agency, had informed the Reich Government that the countries of Albania and Macedonia were voting for their independence. While most wouldn't care, the ReichKanzler was afraid this rally of independence would spread to countries of Bosnia and Croatia, who were under the jackboot of German occupation. The situation in the NC protectorate of Bosnia was also threatened, and military officials feared the unrest would erupt again. Citing these reasons, the ReichKanzler ordered an immediate meeting of the German Military High Command.

Office of the Reich Military High Command

Around a large table stood some of the most powerful men of the Reich. One was the Supreme Commander of the Reich Armed Forces; a tall man who had headed hundreds of military offensives before. The other men were mostly commanders in the Reichwehr, Luftwaffe and various other Reichministers. Leading the meeting was the Reichkanzer of the Greater German Reich. He was feeling in for the Kaiser, who was overseas attending the great exhibition in Hansa. The Kaiser had given him full authority to act how he saw fit regarding the current situation.

"The current situation in the Balkans is alarming once again." the Director of Reich Intelligence stated. "At this rate, they will have independence in days, which could spell doom for us. We've already been tracking revolutionary activity in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia."

The Reichkanzler interrupted.

"Have any actions been taken?"

The Reich Intelligence Director responded quickly.

"Heh, all have been arrested or being investigated as we speak"

The Reichkanzler looked at the map of the area and pointed.

"First, let me say that is good, Director. Second. We need to end this situation once and for all. We can cite keeping the Balkans calm and tame. To be honest, I doubt the world would care. Do as you please Commander."

The Reichkanzler walked out of the room to update the Kaiser on the current situation. The Supreme Commander ordered his men to prepare for military operations at once.

Operation "Herkules"

Military units in the Reichsprotektorate of Bosnia and Croatia were already on the move through the territories of Serbia. They were quick reaction mechanized units from the 1st Panzer Division "GrossDeutchland". They were accompanied by a few infantry divisions and another panzer division, bringing the total force to around fifty thousand men. They would move in quickly, to seize important city centres and government offices.

Overhead, the Luftwaffe was at it again. Dozens of high-speed German transports holding German paratroops flew overhead. These planes would land at airports, quickly leaving dozens of special forces operators. These men would capture the small airports and essentially become the sole operators of the airports. Using their technical skills, they would guide in hundreds of German transports, carrying thousands of light troops, which would flood the interior. It was estimated that atleast one transport a minute was landing around the clock around Albania and Macedonia.

Important communication centers, which could be used to rally enemy forces against the German invasion force was struck by high-speed cruise missiles and Lu-67 Multi-Role aircraft, holding GPS guided bombs and other munitions. All in all, the German High Command guessed the country would fall within days.

OOC: Ehm...I have interests in the region, y'know. :jihad:

IC: The UK is greatly alarmed by this series of events, and protests this 'invasion'. Was this really necessary?

**Official Reponse from the Reich Ministry of Foreign Affairs**

We looked at a number of factors before we decided to invade. We reached a conclusion when it became apparent that the government of IndoChina was unable to govern these specific areas, especially when it was under attack by committing a number of offenses on its own soil. Furthermore, we looked into the possible situation of massive distablization with the collapsing of a suitable government in the region. As you know, the Balkans has been a hot bed of activity, with the collapse of two governments, with the latest being the collapse of the Republik Balkan. We fear that another collapse of two governments could spread the possibility of revolutionary thought, throughout the area. Therefore, we decided to move, to stabilize the region.

But the populace clearly wished for independence...would you deny them of that wish? Do not take this as hostility, we are only wondering.

We'd be willing to grant them independence when we feel their state is stabilized enough to handle free elections.

And just how will you determine how stable is stable? They were stable enough to hold a referendum--and you waltzed in right over their wishes.

The German miliary advance had made tremendous progress since the start of operations. Over 95% of the country under direct German military control, with the other 5% scheduled to fall within hours. In the streets, citizens welcomed the German soldiers, who were marching by. Ethnic Germans ran to the soldiers giving them hugs and kisses.

At his palace, Kaiser Visari officially declared Operation "Herkules" a success and ended all major combat operations. A new civil authority was to be set up, in the form of Reichsprotektorate Albania and Macedonia. Again, German military might had prevailed.

Molakia offers troops to oversee the transition to independant states of these nations. Molakian troops are known for the expertise in Peacekeeping Missions. We train our soldiers hard to become some of the best Peacekeepers in the world, as well as...more militant options should we ever be invaded.

The UK wonders if it could administer the region together with the Greater German Reich...seeing the region's proximity to us, and we have quite a history dispelling anarchy and lawlessness.

OOC: Yes, you do...one would almost think you are imperialist... :P
