This is the scenario for our wargame. Please do not post any moves at this time, as it will not officially start until I return on Wed. After my return I will post the official turn schedule.

Non-players please do not post in this thread. If you want to post comments, please post in the original thread

Players, please keep posts in this thread to the scenario.

Main rule for the game is that a nuclear attack automatically ends the game. All other actions will be judged, and determined if they are possible. There is almost no limit on actions allowed, but please try not to be TOO outrageous with them. (ie: iran launching a missile attack on Russia, just because they're in a bad mood.)

**Breaking News from CNN**

A British Airways 747 carrying the British, American, and Japanese Ambassadors has crashed in Africa. The flight was heading to South Africa for a special meeting on the Crisis in Africa. A USAF E-3 AWACS was in the area, and reports several anonmalous readings in the area of the plane before it crashed. Rescuers have reported no survivors as yet, but search operations are still underway.

The Pentagon has just reported that the radar data shows a pair of what appear to be Russian built SU-27 fighter/bombers near the 747 shortly before the crash. They are examining the radar tapes further to determine where exactly the fighters came from. It appears at this time that the 747 was deliberately brought down.

More details are coming out as times goes on. For unknown reasons the flight was diverted off shore from Eritrea, and off established air routes before the crash. Most of the wreckage is in deeper waters and will probably never be recovered. The USN is sending a salvage ship to the area in an attempt to recover what they can of the wreckage.

There will be further news as it becomes available.

The Eritrean Governments' Statement,

We have mobilised our naval fleet consisting of 30 boats (of unknown description) to aid the countries who have so tragically lost their ambassadors.

We would like to point out that although we possess su-27's we were in no way linked to this terrible attack and we were not conducting any excercises in the area ruling out the possibility of an accident.

As my government has always stated we support the change in Africa as it may bring in investment ,creating much needed development and jobs.

We have our own theories on who carried out this attack and will follow our own lines of enquiry hopefully with UN support ,I wish to add I hope our friends will aid us if for any reason we are used as a scapegoat and attacked for no reason in these most unfortunate times.

We would once again like to send out our condolences to the families of the international dignatries involved,The Eritrean peoples prayers are with you.

Kuhl (Eritrean President)

North Korean World Press Announcement

Kim Jung Il

This disaster is truly tragic, but people of the world, and my people of Korea, do not be fulled by the smiling faces of the United States. They try to pass blame to others, say it was Russia, but it is most assuredly the United States that has done the damage. I do not doubt that the Imperialistic American dictators are trying to point another finger, to lead they're people into another war. I did not know there is that much oil in Russia. The true axis of evil shall not pass judgement without it being given, and I propose to the countries of the world, to be wary of what snakey words this serpant speaks of.

Breaking News from Iran:

The Iranian President today made a short but to the point speech to the citizens of Iran. He denied any involvement in the downing of flight 10001 and reiterated that his country was prepared and ready in the event the illegal Zionist dogs or their lackeys in the west try to justify an attack upon the nation using this incident. He further claimed the divine light that once shone upon him is now shining on the entire nation of Iran and the Mahdi is soon to come. He commanded all the people of Iran to pray for just this event.

Further news as it develops.

The Government of South Korea and its people send are deepest condolences to the families of those who have died.

That being said, let it be known that the Government of our great country wholehartedly condemns the actions of these monsters. We are willing to offer any help we can in this situation, either for rescue or the follow-up investigations.

We call for those responsible to be dealt with in the harshest way possible. We for one hope this was not a sanctioned act by any country, as this would be considered an act of war and should be dealt with as such.

I just hope we can unite under this horrible incident and show are true colors.

More to follow...

Breaking news from CNN.

The Pentagon has released data showing that the two SU-27s were launched from a small airfield inside Eritrea. The airfield is one that is not used by the Eritrean military, so at this time it is not known who the fighters belonged to. The NSA is examining intercepts from around the time of the shootdown to try to determine who they belonged to. There is evidence that Iran is responsble for the incident in an attempt to make Eritrea look responsible. However, this has yet to be confirmed.

Breaking story:

In a news conference that ended a few moments ago the President of Iran denounced the findings of the preliminary investigation and stated emphatically that the nation of Iran had nothing to do with the downing of the diplomats plane. He further stated that this ploy by the illegitimate state of Israel and its lackeys and puppets in the United States government were plainly meant to justify an attack on his nation. In a direct quote he stated, “We will defend ourselves against the aggressors in every way at our disposal. We will shut down the Straits of Hormuz, Mine the waters of our coasts and shut down the oil supply from ALL the Middle East if this aggression is allowed.” He then walked quickly away to join the top rank and file of the Iranian military who were discussing the findings of the investigation.

More on this as it becomes available.

North Korean News (NKN) Special Annoucement

In a special NKN News Annoucement, President Kim Jung Il spoke out about the accusations against Iran being responsible for the attack on the commercial airliner.

"The American imperialistics are looking for more oil to feed theyre bloodthirsty mouths! I, and all of North Korea firmly stand by Iran and it's innocents. How many wars can you build on lies, Imperialistists?"

Kim Jung Il went on to say he firmly supports Iran, and claims that the American lies will simply fall onto deaf ears in the end.

Jung-Il later commented on the trade between Eritea and North Korea.

"The trade of much needed perishable commodities was needed, and to show a sign of good will, North Korea freely traded several of our military assets to strengthen the defense of Eritea against hostile forces."

AP is reporting that just a few moment ago the German Chancellor answered several questions to reporters about Iran's recent threats and statements.

Reporter: “Chancellor what do you make of Iran's recent threat that it will block Middle East oil supply?”

Merkel: “I think its very irresponsible and foolish, instead of making irrational threats Iran should focus on alleviating world fears about its recent behavior.”

Reporter: “How would Germany respond if such a scenario did play out?”

Merkel: “Well, its very difficult to make any concrete decision now, I would just say however that we would join and work together with our closest allies to find the best solution if indeed such a problem should arise.”

That's all from Germany, more as it becomes available.

This is a CNN Special Report.

The Pentagon has released two new NSA Reports. It has been determined that the two SU-27s were flown by Eritrean pilots. It is still not known who hired them, but it appears that the planes were Eritrean. They were supposed to be on a routine training mission on the day of the incident. The investigation is continuing to determine who hired the pilots.

In another report it was determined that the missing plutonium in Russia s still in the country. Several Russian workers from the plant where it was stolen from were arrested recently, and the plutonium found in a transport case. No word on where they were going with it, or why they stole it yet however.

In a shocking turn of events, North and South Korea today announced a new alliance between the two countries. South Korea announced that all US forces have 15 days to begin leaving the country, and all basing rights have been revoked.

"In a North Korean Press Conference, where both Kim Jung Il, and the South Korean President was attending, Kim Jung Il spoke out to reveal the mutile reunitation of the Koreas. In his conference, he announced that North and South Korea would join together to form one new Korea, the NEW PEOPLES PRINCIPALITY of KOREA (NPPK.)

"It has been many years since our families have broken apart. In a time of tribulation, it is necessary for us to repair the binds that have been broken. It is necessary, for the safety of our people, and the security of both of mighty nations, for us to join back together, to bring Korea back to its glory. We will not be deterred any longer by outside influence. We will not sit idly by as the world turns. The New Peoples Principality of Korea shall be a strong Korea, a powerful Korea, and a glorious Korea. the dawn of the new millenium shall be seen in the future as the golden dawn of Korea!"

Kim Jung Il requested that, now with the reuniting of both North and South Korea, that the United States-run Demilitarized zone be torn down, and demands that all United States troops leave the country in a timely manner. "

US responses :

#1 - the eritrea / NK " arms for food deal " – the message from the state dep. And the dept of defence is blunt – “ try it “ –

Ertiarea is incapable of feeding itself Without foreign aid – how is it going to feed NK ????

NK weapons are second rate garbage scows – barely capable of floating – more of a danger to thjier crew than any imaginary enemy . go a head “ buy “ them – you will be stuck with Submarines you cannot crew , cannot operate , have no role for … the term “ white elephant “springs to mind .

# 2 – irans threat to mine the straits of hormuz – “ go ahead , cut your own throats “ – along with the throats of Kuwait , barhain , UAE , oman , Saudi Arabia , dubia etc etc

#3 – korean unification – “ go ahead “ – the US will with draw – its troops – and EVERYTHING else , if that is what korea wants . the US position is strangely isolationist – insisting that this is a local matter – and “ if that’s what korea wants “

In the news , the ROK press is abuzz with the “ what is in it for us ?” campaign – firmly aimed at the average man on the street in south korea – a mix of viral marketing – paid ads , op/eds and websites hammers home the message “ what is in it for us “ – highlighting the gulf between north and south – and empisising the DROP in living standards that head long rush to unification will mean for the oaverage south Korean

#4 – the US is playing a ` hands off ` approach – to all posturing and name calling by unstable beligerant rogue nations – they can scream “ yankess go home “ – lest see if they are ready for the repercussions if we actually do

SAR efforts :

USS Oak Hill ('___' 51) is ordered to leave station [ indian ocean ] and make maximum speed to djibouti

the marine garrison @ djibouti will supply the bulk of the aircraft and personell

additional helicopters and personel [ as needed ] will be tasked from Nassau Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) and [22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) (SOC)]

they will operate from temporary forward bases in jakar [ red sea coast of Saudi Arabia ]

US proprities at this time are , in order :

1 effect the rescue of any live survovors
2 properly recover any remains and return them to next of kin
3 gather evidence of who is responsible


The US requests that the pilots be turned over to US authorities for questioning

Security issues :

the USAF is authourised to deplloy 3 " rivet joint " + 3 " AWACS " in addition to units aleardy in theatre . the first will arrive in 16 hours , the last within 60

no further deployments are planed – the C3I assets are ONLY to enhance security in the region – by making it impossible for any further incidents to go un detected

**Official German Press Release***

Germany urges Eritrea to hand over the pilots and equipment in question to the US, this must be done so the world community can get to the bottom of this matter. The support and aid of the EU could be at risk if Eritrea does not comply and cooperate.
