Alarms were on around the country, citizens living on the northern parts of the country had been evacuated. All northern cities, including Newark, Buckingham, and Victoria, had been placed on the highest security measure. A war was coming, it is certain. There had already been shooting on the mountains, the artilleries moved into the scene together with the tanks and IFVs. There was no turning back. The country is on war, and is the first since the Communist Rebellion last year.
The council convened and the cabinet once again moved back to the secure location at the Doughnut, which luckily is located to the southwest. The Royal Family had to be evacuated back to Sandringham, and Copala City was placed on high alert due to it's high profile in terms of warfare danger.
"My friends, you all probably know why we're back on this damn f_cking place. Another sh_thole just wants to mess with us again, but they're no match for our very advanced equipment. We outnumber them on everything, but they outnumber us on our main fighters." says Simon.
"I think we need to add more personnel, make an emergency conscription policy during this time. Or call all our reservists from other countries." suggested the Defense Minister
"We can't do that, the international community is all eyes on us again in situations like this and we can't risk the people and our reputation as a country at the same time." objected the Foreign Minister
General Renwalt came in to the room after being called by Simon. He reported the current situation in the area.
"Sir, currently we have enough manpower to fight against the Istkalen people. Once we get rid of them, we are planning to march through Istkalen and take over the area to prevent these situations from happening." he reported
"Good, you'll be in charge of the entire war effort, make sure that this will be successful unlike what happened before. And also, how are the Vardics doing?" Simon replied
"We are trying to contact the Vardics to see if we could conduct a joint operation to prevent the invasion from worsening. The Vardics are our nearest partners that we could best rely on. I highly doubt that the United Duchies is really there to help, but we are reaching out to them to discuss their intentions and plans." said Gen. Renwalt.
"That is all the information I need for now, thank you. And also, make sure that the king and the Royal Family are safe. We can't lose them in this war. They are the country's hope and we need them to boost morale." said Simon.
Peter immediately left with a helicopter and went back to the military settlement in Newark and Mt. Britannia.
