Announcement from the Green Flag

Normally, this type of thing would have been done in secret. Through the back channels, the dark rooms, etc. Normally, a group of this nature would attack someone or something and then announce their existence.

This wasn't any normal organization, though.

This was the Green Flag, a terrorist group that had survived years of turmoil and conflict. This was a terrorist group that had assassinated world leaders, sent fear into the hearts of millions, and had never been found. This was the group who's singular calling card was just a simple, green flag waving in the breeze.

They were not a complex group. Indeed, they only had two goals: create as much chaos and terror in the world as possible, and earn as much money as possible. They were terrorists for hire. They did not fight for an ideology, or a religion, or a cause. They fought for money. But they were no mercenaries. They would not fight anyone's wars. These were acts meant to inspire terror. Short-term things. Get in the country, do it, get out. If they couldn't get in, hire and train someone who could to do it.

The following letter was sent to every country's foreign affairs office, and every television, radio, and newspaper outlet in the world electronically by e-mail. The e-mail was sent through thousands if not hundreds of thousands of proxies, which would eventually trace back to a single signal point in Antarctica, powered by solar energy and batteries. That signal point had received it from an anonymous commercial satellite simply labeled as "One", which had beamed it directly to the signal point. The country of origin where the e-mail was sent was impossible to trace.

Esteemed world leaders, journalists, and populace,

We come to you, once again, to give fair warning to a world we have long inhabited. For a long time we have waited in the shadows, watching, waiting for our time to rise up again. That time is now. Today, we announce the arrival of the Green Flag onto the world stage once again.

For those that do not remember us, or, simply, were not around when we were, we shall educate you. We are men and women of many talents, well educated and we enjoy fine alcohol and long walks on the beach. We have assassinated kings, brought countries crashing to the ground around their people's feet, and earned vast sums of money while doing it.

We understand that this announcement will be condemned by most everyone, and we're okay with that. Really, we're used to being "those guys" by now, it doesn't phase us. So please, please condemn this. Pretty please condemn this and then have someone from your nation call us, because we all know it will happen. We love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning.

We are announcing the continuation of our services. Today marks the first day that the Green Flag once again begins being terrorists for hire. At the end of this message will be a telephone number, secured and untraceable, where you can reach us. We figure that those of you receiving this letter who are in the media will not reprint this number, but we know it will get to the people who need to get it. The spread of this message alone should be enough for that.

So, for those of you who wish to cause terror in the world, whether it be for ideological, religious, we-don't-like-you, or for !@#$%-and-giggles reasons, we're here for you. Give us a call. And, to sweeten the deal, we have a terrorism special going on...

Buy two jobs, and get a third at equal or lesser value, COMPLETELY FREE. That's right, for a limited time, buy two jobs and get a third of equal or lesser value, COMPLETELY FREE.

Sincerely signed,

The Green Flag

Ph. 666-I-KILL-4-U

Don’t think I can’t see through your lies. . . Your Green Flag is nothing but a Dark Hand front.

Today, as always, Procinctia stands firm against the sinister subtle mechanisms of the Dark Hand.

"Only low-class and unintelligent nations would ever hire the "Green Flag". Come on, if some world leader wants to stir trouble elsewhere, why would you hire foreign outlaws to do the job when one of the easiest things to do is to create and fund an "intelligence agency" or "special forces", send them into "sabotage" or "liberation" missions and come to the international community with a clean face, with little risk of being backstabed - whereas hiring foreign criminals leads to who knows how many complications.

If they do raise any funds from their "services", you know what? That's good. It's less money on the hands of stupid governments."

The Theocratic Bureaucracy welcomes you to create a base of operations in our lovely country. I will be the first to say it: Rebel Virginia supports terrorism.

Private GLS activities responding to Rebel Virginia's statement:

Shut down all border checkpoints that is on Rebel Virgina/Great Lakes State border, air, and shipping traffic to Rebel Virginia. Upgrade border defenses on Rebel Virgina/Great Lakes State border and Lake Erie, and build additional military bases on the border and Lake Erie. We do not want any of their freaking terrorists enter our nation.

-----------------------

Public:

We do not support any form of terrorism, that includes the Green Flag. If we really needed spying/propaganda service, we prefer to go with Artemis since they stated that they will not kill any innocent civilians.

As a reaction to Rebel Virgina's action, we have fully closed all land, water, and air access to Rebel Virgina and imposed an economical sanction on them. Any Rebel Virgina's citizens that are in Great Lakes State will be deported within 24 hours, or will face a heavy fine.

We don't deal with terrorists. If we have any mercenary needs, we will go to Artemis.

This is our stance, also. We are shocked that our neighbor Rebel Virginia, of which we had given up our Protectorate to, would support something so horrible as terrorism.

And you're just going to let it slide without any repercussions like closed borders, economic sanctions or even military action. A shame.

An exasperated Green Flag message followed.

For those of you with obvious reading disabilities, we will repeat ourselves.

We are not mercenaries. We will not fight your wars for you. For all your mercenary needs, you should go to Artemis, since they are the only mercenary group on the planet. We are terrorists for hire, we are different. We can do the things that Artemis cannot, or will not, do. We fill a necessary need. We are not mercenaries, so please stop calling us that.

"Mercenaries, Hit men, whatever you call yourselves...you're still just thugs working for money, albeit well-connected, well-trained thugs."

OOC: I may have someone call you later on this, when I have a little more time. Time my nation got shaken up a little more, I think.

"It seems that in the post-Nordlandic era we find more and more terrorism all over the world, without the one great evil that everyone would concentrate on, they now fight each other and cannot handle their own nations without the unity that Nordland provided. In all of its oppression, imperialism, and militarism it seems that they did some good for the world by bringing everyone together with one common enemy.

Perhaps we were better off with Nordland intact."

Perhaps you don't realize that just because situation B occurred after situation A, that doesn't mean situation A caused it. For example, you eat cooked pork. A few minutes later, you started sneezing from catching the flu. Did the cooked pork caused the flu?

"No. No we weren't. Terrorism will always exist, sadly. With Nordland gone, we are at least able to focus on terrorism rather than a power bloated, imperialist nation."

"Surely you jest.

There is no indication that the 'Green Flag' didn't exist before Nordland and only now chose to really reveal themselves."

"Words mean little until action is taken. So what course of action are you advocating here? Let's revive Nordland and terrorism will go away? No, the world needs to unite and take down this threat before it becomes unmanageable. A coalition needs to be created for the purpose of tracking down and eliminating this organization and its supporters."

Perhaps a start should be made in Xaristan. It was rumored that some of its past leaders had strong connections to this shadowy organization.

"We apologize... but we weren't around before Nordland? You surely jest. We have been around for years... going into hiatuses now and then as the world turned to other things and we felt that now would be another good time to reveal ourselves once again."

"I stated that perhaps we were better off. Personally, had I been not within Nordland during its existence, I would rather have a traditional enemy to make war with than terrorists, and at the time, there were no terrorist actions globally, and if there were, they were small and centralized.

I am not saying that Nordland was a good thing, it was a center of oppression that I am most certainly happy is gone, and my people are no longer oppressed, that is most excellent. In retrospect, no, we were not better off, however you cannot deny that with regards to global terrorist activity, there was certainly less during the Nordlandic era. I am simply attempting to draw connections, not incite international hatred for a dead state."

We agree with a coalition. Should such a coalition be created, it would have to utilize all resources, that will have to be executed and pursued with unrelenting determination and effort. Only through that can a terrorist organization, such as the Green Flag, be neutralized and eliminated.
