This is the new thread for the Bergenstein Civil War, replacing the old one, which will be largely retconned. The old thread should be locked

After the Great Adonian War, the economy had been all but run dry. As the modern age dawned and the world changed, Bergenstein’s economy began to suffer. In the year 1978, a nationwide program aimed at revitalization of the various states' navies was begun, further damaging the fragile economy. This culminated in a major financial crash in 1983, sending ripples throughout the nation. Nationwide protests sprung up all over the country. The government responded by brutally cracking down on the leaders of the protests (who have not been seen since then), providing a quick end to the demonstrations.

Since then, the government has continually and repeatedly lied about the dire state that the economy was in. Support for the old system remained strong in many areas, the denizens of those locations believing it to improve their local identity; people who did manage to challenge the government were manipulated through a mix of propaganda and other means.

When foreign powers started to notice how improbable it was that the national financial system was working, a small group of men started to gather information on the truth of the economy. With the possession of this knowledge (and the fact that investments in Bergenstein had been rapidly slowing), they realized that a total economic crash was imminent.

When the crash happened, the militaries of the states quickly started to prepare for a possible revolution, and street protests both for and against the old system began to break out. King Charles of the Imperial Federal Kingdom decided to make a state visit to Bergenstein in his official capacity as the Margrave of Miensburg, in an attempt to stop the inevitable. They soon turned violent and transformed into riots, clashing with each other on regular occasions. When the police intervened, they were always instructed to not harm the Traditionalist rioters. When a number of Modernist rioters were arrested and found guilty of protesting against the government's cause they were sentenced to public execution by guillotine.

When Charles attempted to stop the executions, he was quickly arrested in a coup d’état and his younger brother, who had come to visit the country with him, was placed as Margrave in his stead by the leaders of the coup. The following day, the executions of over 160 Modernist political prisoners began, precipitating the breakout of a full scale civil war across the country.

The Imperial Federal Kingdom has dispatched paratroopers to Mienenstadt with primary orders to mount a rescue attempt for King-Emperor Charles and his brother, Prince William; their secondary orders are to act as peacekeepers in the ongoing conflict in Bergenstein.

This will basically be us going through the same events, although there are several differences. Abbasid will still be neutral in this, although they are open for refugees from the war zones. Also, Kurt is planning to involve the Loyalist Front in this. I don't know the exact specifics from him, but he can post on here. We decided to restart it instead of adding these things later. Things will be slowed down too, and happen a little more realistically.

Dejon & Kurt, if I messed anything up, just post the correct stuff Razz

*sigh*

Please don't keep saying how unrealistic this is without saying exactly what is unrealistic and why it's unrealistic - we're honestly trying to do our best here, which is why this whole thing is being rebooted. Smile

About an hour ago, about 200 IFK paratroopers landed just outside the city boundaries and proceeded to make their way towards their goal. More on this as it develops.

A little over 3 hours ago, a small task force of Mitronian wing-gliders landed outside the city, near the original LZ of the Grandian forces. Although exact numbers are unknown at this time, it appears several VF-17 helicopters, each holding close to 30 men, as well as a couple cargo planes, were all involved in this landing. It is assumed that at least 1,000 Mitronian troops were dropped outside the city. Many of them were part of the new and highly experimental wing-gliding division, on it's maiden mission. It is also the first time in the history of Adonia that a mission involving these specialized troops has been undertaken.
The goal of this mission is aimed at two objectives: Rescuing the royal family, and stopping the executions.

Official Communique from the Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The Brullen Federation is concerned as to why a Neridian and Euphemian nation is infringing on the sovereignty of another nation. We urge for Mitron and Grand to withdraw all troops from Bergenstein. Bergenstein is in a civil war, as of yet, there is no need for foreign assistance.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________
The Brullen Federation has ordered the Brullen Royal Navy to patrol the waters to the north-west of Brullen. Any ship who is not authorized to be travelling there will be asked to vacate the area.


The Minister of Homeland Defence has ordered 5,000 troops to be brought from reserve to patrol the  border with Bergenstien and stop any violence spilling over.


The Department of Immigration has restricted the border with Bergenstien. Anyone wishing to cross from Bergenstien to Brullen must do so at the Halles WA 21 Immigration Centre.


The government has urged all Brullen citizens to return home immediately.

Official Statement of the Imperial Federal Kingdom

The Imperial Federal Kingdom points out that having been an ally of various Bergen states since the late 16th century - and a close ally of Miensburg, the specific state in question, since 1850 - they have a right to intervene, if for no other reason than to prevent the ongoing coup d’état and civil war from possibly ending in the deaths of both of the King-Emperor and his brother.




After senatorial discussion, the Imperial Federal Kingdom has agreed to place its united militaries on high alert, and requests that any of its citizens who are currently located in Bergenstein immediately do their best to leave the country at once. For this purpose, we are arranging for a civilian passenger airliner to land at Verwaltungstadt within the next 48 hours in order to assist in the safe evacuation of civilians caught in the conflict.

After their landings to the south of the city, IFK and Mitron troops advanced some way towards their target. However, they were impeded for some time by a large crowd of rioting Traditionalists, whose numbers were estimated to have been in the upper hundreds, after taking a detour around the old city marketplace to avoid several tanks stationed there.

Unfortunately, because of this, they were too late to save the 160 prisoners from execution, despite their having been stretched out for an extra half hour due to numerous disturbances.

The central Bergenstein government has set up an evacuation point at Verwaltungstadt International Airport for all non-residents and urges all foreign powers to evacuate their citizens at once. All sides have guaranteed your safe passage.

The Sinope Republic would like to remind the Imperial Federal Kingdom of Grand, Belluterra and Malo, that under International Law, the intervention of the Imperial Kingdom is illegal. We request the immediate retreat of Imperial forces from the region.

The Sinope Republic also supports its ally Brullen and urges Bergenstein to stop the violence at once to spare the lost of innocent lives.

Official Statement of the Imperial Federal Kingdom

We would like to point out that as us and Mitron are interfering with the intent of preventing further human-rights violations in the Lordship of Miensburg, we are not violating any international laws by sending our peacekeepers to protect civilians - on both sides, we may add - from further violence in the ongoing conflict. Rescuing the 44 Grandian hostages - including the King-Emperor - is simply an additional bonus.




The main body of the IFK and Mitronian peacekeeping forces have reached the central square in Mienenstadt facing the palace grounds, and have requested the peaceful surrender of the leaders of the coup d’état, and for any hostages to be turned over at once. They have also requested that a combat-free neutral zone be immediately established in or near the city to be used as a refugee camp for any who wish to stay out of the fighting.

We, the true and only leaders of Miensburg, declare our refusal to surrender; you are the ones that are outnumbered and outgunned. Therefore, we will return the favour and request that you surrender instead. If this is refused, we will attack you with lethal force.

Also, due to the large amount of fighting, it will be impossible to create such a camp. We also deny any and all allegations by foreign reporters of supposed Bergen "refugees" as false, further proving that there is any such need for a refugee centre.

The Sinope Republic understands the situation, but would like to remind the Imperial Federal Kingdom of Grand, Belluterra and Malo, that as the intervention was not requested by Bergenstein, it is not valid. Moreover, the intervention can't be possibly valid for a human rights violations, as the intervention is done without prior international investigation of any sort.
"No State or group of States has the right to intervene, directly or indirectly, for any reason whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other State. Consequently, armed intervention and all other forms of interference or attempted threats against the personality of the State or against its political, economic and cultural elements, are in violation of international law." - Friendly Relations Declaration
Bergenstein is in clear violation of international law, but this does not legitimate the actions of the Imperial Federal Kingdom of Grand, Belluterra and Malo to intervene and break international law. Sinope therefore asks for the immediate end of violence, end of foreign presence in Bergenstein, international investigation over human rights violations in Bergenstein and the release of hostages.

Some would dispute the fact that an investigation into human-rights abuses would be necessary when said abuses were clearly carried out live on national television; however, the Imperial Federal Kingdom will temporarily withdraw from Bergenstein, on condition that the Bergen governments comply with the Sinopean demands for a temporary cease-fire, permission for an international investigation to take place, and the release of the Grandian hostages.

Insulo agrees with Sinope on this matter, and applauds the decision of it's ally Grand. Insulo strongly urges Mitron to follow suit.

If this situation can be addressed without foreign military intervention that would be ideal. Insulo urges the continuation of the ongoing trial addressing the charter violations carried out inside Bergenstein, and echoes Sinope's calls for an independent investigation.

It should also be noted that Insulo does not, at this time, have any formal relations with the Bergenstein Central Government and has advised all Insulonian citizens to leave the country.
