zzzptm Posted June 10, 2010 Report Share Posted June 10, 2010 General Obregon sat at his desk, poring over horsefeed requisitioning forms. [i]We still use horses? Seriously?... I guess we do... why do I have to approve these, though?...[/i] Colonel Orozco walked in. "Sir?" "Hmmm?" "We just heard on the radio a broadcast from Morelos. From the sound of it, the sugar growers there have taken up arms and seized the radio station. Probably also barricaded the roads. We're sending recon to check that out." Obregon nodded. "I expected this. What are they demanding?" "Union with the HAE, sir." Obregon inhaled narrowly. "Ooooh! That's a tough one! Do you think the HAE put them up to it?" Orozco shook his head. "I think they're just mad over the land reform. But it does internationalize the issue, somewhat." "I know. Oppressed people rising up and demanding a foreign liberator... puts a little egg on our face, PR-wise." Orozco asked, "What are your orders, sir?" Obregon reached for the current Himynamistan order of battle. He flipped through some pages, then followed down with his finger. "Hold, on... where in Morelos are these guys?" Orozco produced a map from his briefing folder and opened it on Obregon's desk.

We still control the line of communications to Puebla. That's been verified." Obregon nodded and went back to the order of battle. "3rd Mountain is based in Cuernavaca. What's the disposition of their forward elements?" "We haven't yet determined. This leads us to speculate they may have been compromised by the growers or may have joined with them." "So sending in the 3rd to shoot at their fellows is no good. Keep them on patrol in the north of the state, and send in the 2nd Mountain, from Puebla. Let's also establish air cover and let the HAE know that this is going on." ------- [quote] Message to top HAE military and civilian officials From General Obregon, Himynamistan Minister of Military Affairs An internal disturbance exists in the southern portion of the state of Morelos. Himynamistan military units will be entering the region to return it to a normal status. We will respect the territorial integrity of the Holy American Empire. Be advised that participants in the disturbance may attempt flight into the HAE as an alternative to surrendering to Himynamistan justice. If we cannot intercept fleeing elements of the disturbance on our side of the border, we will not pursue them into the HAE. What you do with them will be your business, should they enter the HAE illegally. If any illegal entrants to the HAE fall under formal criminal charges in Himynamistan, we will initiate extradition proceedings as appropriate to international law and other agreements in force regarding the disposition of such persons. Signed, General Obregon Himynamistan Minister of Military Affairs [/quote] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
