Inimician Military News
Militarae, 9-2-2013 - As the economy in Inimicus has thrived in the last year due to the extensive government services, it has recruited more and more soldiers. The Empire joined the EU right when it was formed, one year ago.
The cabinet has, in the past year, increased employment and welfare. However, social equality has recieved no funds by comparison.
"Social services is an area which still needs improvement, but we cannot do everything at once", Prime Minister Wilfred Cocx explained today in the Inimician Second Chamber of Parliament.
The PM debates in the Parliament
"We have been described as a hateful government. As anti-semites, as national-socialists, as fascists. But, as I always say:
A true man hates no one
We have been tested in the past year."
The cabinet has greatly increased the nation's military, too. In the beginning of the nation, the army consisted out of the militias, which fought in the Civil War.
Now, the Imperial Inimician Army has grown and has been modernised.
"We increased the amount of soldiers greatly!", boasted Minister of Defence Basil Lawson, "We renewed the entire military, it is now greater than ever!"

Together with Minister of Justice and Security George Williams, Minister of Defense Basil Lawson has called a new Military force into life: the Internal Terrorist Guardians (ITG), who are tasked with the fighting of terrorism throughout Inimcus. The country was shocked recently by the death of Emperor William I at the hands of terrorists, and is desperate to fight these cowardous acts. This organisation of highly-trained (mostly undercover) agents will try to infiltrate the terrorist networks and take them out. Of course, we cannnot go into detail, because all the specified information and tactics are highly confidential. The Minister made the official announcement this afternoon, despite the period of mourning the country is in:
_"...The Internal Terrorist Guardians will most likely bring significant changes to Inimician safety. We do not fight the groups openly anymore. Instead, we infiltrate their entire foul systems, and then release a chain of events, causing the group to collapse completely. What this method will be I cannot say, but what I can guarantee you, is that it will be a thrashing success. Never before has any Inimician official thougt of something this brilliant, and I thank my colleague the Minister for Justice and Security George Williams for his excellent contribution to the realisation of this force.
Now, the costs are high, we admit. But the cost of an unsafe populace are higher than any amount of money could ever reach. His Majesty Emperor William I, blessed be his body, gave us personal permission to organise this force back in January, and from tomorrow onwards they will be in every terrorist organisation in the country. We are highly proud of these brave men and women, and pray for their success..."_
Even "hobos" like these could well be ITG agents

Minister for Defence and Nuclear Development Basil Lawson has announced a partial mobilisation of the Inimician Military. This means recruiting is drastically increased and a part of the compulsory military force is called into action. It is rumoured this measure is taken because of the increasinly inflammatory situation in the Western Sahara, which Inquista promptly invaded at the beginning of this week. Inimicus is one of the nations which have pledged to support the Commission's position in the conflict, among Halsberg, Great Britain, Davishire and Groot-Belgi?. Inimicus still has the passive compulsory military service, which means all men above the age of 16 can be called to serve in the armed forces whenever the government deems this necesarry.
"...We have decided to call in a part of the mobilisation force for indefinite time. I apologise for the wives and children who will have to deal without their husbands and fathers, but we are dealing with a situation hitherto unkown to the Empire of Inimicus...", the Minister said this morning in an official press release.
