Pax Britannia Regional Message Board
In the War Room
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I confess that our great nation is at odds. France has never experienced anything like this, and while we are still a formidable state, wether or not we retain our power in the 21st century rests on this matter."
President Sarkozy had lost plenty of sleep over the recent protests in the streets of most major cities, including his own beloved Paris, and, while peaceful, the pressure from the public would only grow in it's intensity.
"There are many things we could do about the matter. Could you declare martial law?" asked Hollande.
"I have to get the approval of the National Assembly for that. And they already are filled with Demontagne supporting Gravonists".
"You could do some kind of PR campaign while things are still civil. It seems to me that the public just isn't happy with the idea of France decolonizing", stated Foreign Minister Le Pen.
"That could be done. My campaign speeches on decolonization are not enough to satisfy the public, it seems. Chirac, don't you have some friends in France actualities et Culture?"
"Ouais. I'll see if I can pull a few strings. Perhaps you can use that utilitarian view of decolonization that you pulled off with President Lindler, but in essays and opinion pieces".
Sarkozy nodded in agreement. "In the meantime...Marine, do you have a report on French North Africa?"
Le Pen handed him some papers in a manila folder with some photographs. "The colonies...er, southern departments, are still stable for the most part. After that scene in Ceuta the anti-colonial activists have distanced themselves from some of the more violent factions. But otherwise, the Legion has stamped out most of the more violent activists. There are still a few camps left in the hills and desert, but they hardly cut it as a threat".
Sarkozy crossed himself. "Good. Let us pray for stability in the years to come. I don't want the world to have to drag France, Malta, and Hungary into modernity...kicking and screaming, in my term as President".
Scotia Flow in Detail (sort of) - Meddling with Holidays - Issue 40, November 1992
After a recent vote in Parliament, the FPP majority passed a bill that moves Christmas Day to 24. December while also making the next two days national holidays as well. The first Christmas to be affected will be Christmas 1993. The vote on the matter was not very divided, mostly thanks to the aforementioned FPP majority. Out of 58 MPs present, 37 voted for, 15 abstained and 6 against.
Alongside this, the General Staff of the Army has announced that they have decided to add Neoslavic counterparts to English names of our Airborne Cavalry brigades.
The following is a statement paid for by the Great British Unity.
ARE YOU TIRED OF THIS HAPPENING?
"Can we keep our port please?"
"Now back to this port stuff, if I recall
"Let's talk to Malta and tell them some things"
La Uffda, Chapter 1
President Sarkozy was not usually an anxious man. He preferred a good slow burn and then see how things go, though not with the naivety of his predecessor. Though the recent riots and skirmishes both in France and French North Africa have taken it's toll on him.
Why does anyone want a job like this? Sarkozy thought to himself as he soaked in a tub of bubbles and warm water, sipping his white wine. The riots in France had finally cooled down after he caved in and had the Legion fight back against the rebels, though things were still fairly tense. With a public this big, armed, and mad, it was not like he had a choice in the matter.
President Sarkozy heard a knock at the door. He fumbled to make himself decent. "Who is it?" he called with anticipation and guilt. This moment of weakness would surely smear him later on, or so he thought.
"Oh, monsieur President. Pardonnez moi, I can come back later", said Foreign Minister Marine Le Pen, blushing a bit as she scrambled to close the door.
"No, no. Stay", he said, sinking back into the tub with a look of defeat on his face. "What do you need, Foreign Minister?"
Marine, trying her best to act normal, regained composure. "...Our recent intel on Spain is quite damning, to put it nicely".
Sarkozy's expression slowly evolved from a look of defeat to reserved intrigue. "And what's that? The Spaniards finally accomplish something today and not tomorrow?"
"You could say that. The regions of Extremadura, Asturias, and Navarra have all seceded from Spain. I suppose the Falangist regime was too unkind to them over the years".
"Very interesting. What are they like?"
"A coalition of traditionalists, mainly. A few Ratists, Liberals, and Gravonists all discontent in the same way. It's a good opportunity to flex a bit, particularly after this incident in Africa", stated Le Pen.
"Indeed. King Hugo sure has his uses. Respectable, popular, landed. He'll make a fine ally I'm sure. How much damage have they done?"
"Oh, some dead regional leaders, many dead police, a few riots. The usual. The Spaniards are confident that they can be sniffed out quickly".
"Based on their current success, I doubt it", replied Sarkozy.
"It will keep the public distracted while things calm down. besides, if we are going to lose Africa.."
"We won't lose Africa", said Sarkozy with a growl.
"If we WERE to lose Africa then...it would be good life insurance for the French Sphere. And besides, we need more ETU members and the Falangists are too obsessed with trade restrictions to consider anything but isolationism".
"Fair point. It's been a while since we've had a war anyway. Let's see how successful they are and go from there. Get Hugo in touch with us when you get a chance".
"It shall be done, Monsieur President. is there anything else you need?"
Sarkozy hesitated for a minute. "Close the door.."
Death to Traitors - December 18th, 1992
With thousands of statesmen gathered in the Moscow Presidium, they were eventually greeted by Director for the Committee of State Security, Vladimir Kryuchkov, who assumed the chamber’s central podium. The Director, a member of the R.E.D., opened his statement by thanking politicians for their gathering, and asserting that now more than ever, security within the halls of the Federation’s government is crucial.
Affirming President Gennady Yanayev’s assertions of the ongoing Western Conspiracy which seeks to dismantle the United Soviet Federation from within, the Director confirmed that internal investigations had uncovered the presence of hundreds of fifth columnists within the Soviet government. From here, the Director retrieved a multitude of files from one of his nearby secretaries who accompanied him to the podium.
Reading from the files, Kryuchkov began to list out the names of various members of the Supreme Soviet and Congress of People’s Deputies who themselves had been uncovered as foreign actors and instigators of sedition within the Federation! One by one, each was escorted by armed guards and Spectre agents positioned in the chamber. The session was punctuated with a singing of The Internationale by supporting members of the Carsonist Party.
Likewise, across the Federation, local police precincts have been uprooted of corrupt figures. Foreign actors on the street level in Moscow and all other cities will be neutralized accordingly in line with new investigations by Kryuchkov’s Committee. The Soviet government now faces a complete investigation for the seeking out of those disloyal to the R.E.D.
The Federation endures.
Yanayev Murdered! Kryuchkov President - December 25th, 1992
Harrowing news from Moscow, as this morning, it was discovered that the President of the United Soviet Federation, Gennady Yanayev, was murdered in his bed. The entirety of Moscow has been placed under complete lockdown by the Committee of State Security and the Soviet Army. While investigators confer at the scene of the President’s assassination at Novo-Ogaryovo, it has been confirmed by initial reports that the President was murdered between the times of 0400 and 0530 in the early morning.
As the hunt for the killer intensifies, any and all suspects at the Presidential estate have been detained. Investigators also reported in a press briefing that 54 suspects attempted to flee the scene of the crime and were shot by police.
In the ranks of the Rapid Emergency Directorate, the provisional government was quick to respond to the death of President Yanayev. In the wake of the tragedy, the 7 members of the R.E.D. voted unanimously to confirm Director of the Committee of State Security Vladimir Kryuchkov as President of the United Soviet Federation.
In his first emergency statement to Soviet television stations, President Kryuchkov announced that he would “maintain and intensify,” the policies enacted by Yanayev regarding the ongoing state of emergency, support for Cobol in the war in Malaysia, and the maintaining of the Carsonist world’s airtight security against the forces of imperialism. Additionally, President Kryuchkov has made clear his approval for the expansion of the Federation’s nuclear stockpile, as well as the stationing of nuclear launch-capable sites in other parts of the Carsonist world.
Under his presidency, Kryuchkov has clarified, the Federation will maintain a commitment to the Oslo Accords, and will unearth the full might of the Soviet Armed Forces against any who violate it.
