Title: Border Operations
Turkey - June 17, 2007 09:05 AM (GMT)
Yesterday, as daylight faded, there was extraordinary activity amongst the borders; the area had not seen military activity after the first war. However, with the Kurdish insurgency, measures had to be taken. The mountains around the border was infested with insurgents and they were constantly violating the set borders in order to plant road mines and launch attacks at border towns. In the past two weeks, the causalities had risen up to 20 deaths - 14 civilian and 6 military, and they were mounting. The American-puppet government had tried to sooth the situation by politics, but everyone could see there was no point. Majority sided with the army in agreeing the need for out-of-borders military action.
As the national assembly met yesterday on the issue, the chief of army stood up and left, voicing his disagreement on the path currently taken. Every member of the national assembly had sworn to secrecy about the current disagreements between the government and the army, but it is only a matter of time before the news hits the nation.
As for the military activity, around 30,000 infantry units were deployed along the border cities of Hakkari and Sirnak. The initial operations will include within-border insurgency hunting but no violations of the borders will happen until further notice. The military will continue its field maneuvers and "accidently" drop several artillery pieces in rural Kurdish settlements.
Everyone within the ranks are working their share at 200% efficiency in order to keep these events as secluded as possible.

After hearing reports of gunfire and artiliary by the Iraqi military and troubling intellegence reports, United Arab Defence Force commander General Akkam would like to meet with the Turkish commander. "If there is some sort of offensive going on, we would like to to work out some way of maintaining Iraq's border integrity during this operation, perhaps we could help out. However, any unagreed to invasive act in Iraqi soil will be seen as an act of war. The 40,000 strong UADF and Iraqi army will back that up."(source: wikipedia)
Edit: null untill further notice.

We are quiet puzzled by your demands of maintaining Iraq's border integrity. We have done nothing to threathen it, nor would we dream of causing instability to amongst our borders. Also, be careful with your words, gentleman, for show of numbers does not threathen us. The Great Turk has risen armies of tens of thousands, and if need-be, they shall rise again.
OOC: Well the border buildup was supposed to be secret, but sure i can handle a bit of questioning. And dont mind the language, i just watched pirates 3 :lol:

ooc: oops, sorry. I'll edit the post so that it makes more sense, but it would be impossible to cover up this big of an operation. :P, how was the third pirates of the carribean by the way?
Yugoslavia - June 17, 2007 11:16 PM (GMT)
Yugoslavia is not spying.
ooc: Pirates 3 is worthwhile seeing. Still not better than the 1st. It is also like 3 hours long. I have never said this before but they over did the epicness of it.
Poland - June 18, 2007 08:44 AM (GMT)
Poland is not spying either.
OOC: It has about as many good bits as the first one, but they're spread over double the length. Plus, it takes itself much too seriously.
Turkey - June 18, 2007 03:29 PM (GMT)
OOC:what do you guys mean by not spying? Are you just trying to say that you are not aware of whats going on? And about the operation, its nothing big at the moment its just a field troop exercise. I liked the third one cuz it didnt really involve the first and the second movies that much (which i watched but didnt pay attention to). It was too dramatized, there were too many parts which could be seen as the climax of the story, but after all it was good.

ooc: eh, epicness is good. Kingdom of Heaven is one of my favorite movies. Anyway when they said they weren't spying they were making a joke. As for the operation, I'll nullify my posts untill your campaign gets more intense.

"What does Jerusalem mean to you?"
Saladin: "Nothing" (walks away towards his army)
(Saladin turns around)
That was undoubtedly the best moment in 'Kingdom of Heaven'

Hey, I'm a mod now. Back on Topic!

Major Iskender was pacing back and forth nervously amongst many standing by the intelligence office. There were worried faces amongst the men there, and they were not so sure what to do with their hands; some were scratching their heads, some where tapping the walls to create some kind of beat and others' were simply in their pockets.
Just as soon as the major was about to leave, the man he had been waiting for entered the room with bunch of papers between his arm and his body, with two patches of sweat on the armpits and a complexion on his face. His name was Mustafa Akdeniz, the head correspondent of anti-terrorism force in the southeast branch of the Turkish government.
Everyone in the room was standing afoot. They were waiting for the news. Suddenly, all eyes turned to him. He carefully chose out his words, and then commenced:
"Gentlemen, be ready for operation at 0200 hours, two days from now. May God be with us."
Without another word, everyone nodded their heads as Mr. Akdeniz walked out.
Turkey - June 28, 2007 06:58 PM (GMT)
Mustafa Akdeniz was listening to the daily reports on PKK activity along the borderline of Turkey and how the clashes had went. After hearing the good news of having killed 7 separatists and discovering a PKK armory, he walked to his liquor cabinet and pulled up some of his finest. There was Major Iskender, the person who would lead the Iraqi offensive, sitting by his desk.
"Do you want some?" said Mustafa, in a low tone - he didnt mean it. He loved his alcohol. To his relief, Major Iskender replied "no, thanks. I dont drink on work hours".
He flushed one cup of the heaviest down his throat and filled another and walked to his desk. He planted it, and looked to Iskender in the eye. THere was an air of doubt in his face, of wonder. He was wondering why they had paused the operation. It was ordered to have happened 2 weeks ago, but another development in another place had bothered the army intelligence and that soldiers were needed elsewhere.
"Im sorry, Major Iskender, but i am afraid you will be reassigned to your previous division as a regular commander. We do not consider an Iraqi offensive at the moment."
Major Iskender felt cheated, but he couldnt do anything about it. He was waiting to kick some ass for the last couple of weeks, but he couldnt know. He said "No problem, sir. Willing to serve the nation anywhere!" He regretted saying those lines a second after he had finished saying them. He saluted the intelligence officer whom he assumed was of higher rank than him, and got up. As he was leaving the room, he took notice of a map of Greece. Sure, there were many maps: maps of Cyprus, maps of USSR, maps of bunch of countries. But why was this one enlarged, and had scribbles on it? He didnt mind dropping that doubt for now and walked out silently.
OOC: DUM DUM DUM.... :lol:

It was late midnight, just about the time that the Greek border guards would change shifts. Many of them had been recalled to fight the insurgency within and only few were left to maintain their role. It was hard to see form the position I was in, but I managed to spot only 2. One was up, walking about the fence and the other was in the confy room set up for the guards. The latter was motionless, so I assumed he was sleeping. That misleading assumption troubles me even today.
Our commander had lead us through the mission. Our code name was Aslan-2, a special operations team of 6 men - highly qualified and guided by West Point graduates. We were assembled to enter Iraq, but I guess the situation on Greece was worse. I had read the interview taken from the American press, and it had troubled me. My grandmother was Greek, and apparently my aunt and my cousin had been killed for being rich. I hadn't seen them, but the simple thought just hit me hard.
At 0314 hrs we received the enter call. All men raised up from their positions and started running, some crawling towards the border gate. We had been ordered to withhold fire at all costs, if in the worst scenario, use the Russian guns that we had acquired from one of the ships that had capsized just off Trabzon. It was a good plan, as many Bulgarians, Yugoslavians and Albanians had these weapons, and it would be a successful cover up taking the situation at hand.
My commander signaled me to the room. He told me to take care of the guard there. We weren't going to kill him, at least I didn't have that in mind at the time but the situation evolved in ways that weren't desirable. The man i had thought was asleep was not sleeping at all, but wide awake and waiting alert. Now tracing through my mind, i remember hearing that they were waiting for a communist ambush. Sadly I had to finish him before he could alert others. It was a sake of profession, and survival of the fittest. He had to die, and I had to kill him.
We arrived at our destination around an hour later. I couldn't keep track of time as we were denied any objects that would cause reflection and a watch had glass that would reflect. The sun wasn't up but roosters were active. I quickly changed my clothes in the small room that we were assigned in, and got out. I was the one who was the communication operative, as I had lived in the Greek isles in the Aegean with my grandma for about a year and was the most fluent Greek speaker in the team. I had to find something to eat, so i took off...
