02/06/74 – 15/11/74
For all those readers and followers of the Underground Broadcast of the Seattle World News we are sorry to report but do to the recent UCAS restrictions and signal blocking we are unable to broadcast or update any news reports to this website. For those interested in the truth behind the news outages and the reality of what going on in the nation and the world…..please turn on the old AM stations of Mr. Boston, Mr. Vegas, Socrates and Howling Mad the Truth behind the Federal District. These old Disc Jockeys can still broadcast beyond the UCAS media black out and their reports are creditable and without bias.
Again we in the Seattle World News apologise for this inconvenience and will resume normal broadcasting one the blackout is lifted or our pirates can find away to connect to the server under the blackout. This is the final straw and the UCAS has crossed the line…..the people should never be without the news and the media and we journalists will continue working to bring you the news through other media outlets until we can once again take to the trideo and the matrix.
Well readers and fans of the Seattle World News it seems that we have found a hole in the black out and have once again resumed the pirated broadcast reporting of the Truth Behind the News….the News they don’t want you to hear.
First and foremost there is allot to report but I will leave out most of the news from the blacked out months seeing that you have already heard those stories from either the physical printed pages we sent out or the radio broadcasts of Mr. Boston, Mr. Vegas, Socrates or Howling Mad; so without further interruption here is the news from 01/11/74 till 15/11/74….or as Mr. Boston would say “Well looks like’s it’s time for me to put my newsman fedora on….here are the current headlines.”
For starters mid October 2074 Presidential candidate Lyndon Kingsbury was assassinated during a debate by legendary assassin Bleach live on camera; leaving his running mate River Welsh to stand as the Presidential candidate for the Freedom Party. Lyndon was the current acting President of the UCAS after the multiple assassinations earlier this year; River would be sworn into office before his friend was carried away, many feared a retributive assault from the Freedom Patriots seeing that Lyndon was the older brother of General Archibald Kingsbury. The Patriot command didn’t unlawfully assault the UCAS and held true to his brothers legacy of unification and talks of peace within the UCAS; River Welsh would announce later that day that he wasn’t going to be seeking election as he was only running to help support his long time friend Lyndon and without Lyndon at the helm he didn’t feel it to be proper to continue. He wished the people the very best and would be grieving with the nation over the death of his friend.
The Freedom Party would announce their newest candidate to replace Lyndon and River, it would be former Seattle Judge Oliver Jamestown McKeen and Former Confederate Ambassador August Prichard; many political annalists where dumbfounded by the choice of two Confederates as there selection to replace New England native Lyndon and UCAS Senator River Welsh. Though after reviewing McKeen’s political record and his public address’s the cynic’s would be satisfied that McKeen was the right choice for the Presidential seat and well Prichard…that’s another story all together.
The Next few weeks were rampant with political advertisement and mud slinging as the Democracy Party would bolster their newest candidates Linda Harvard and Steven Dartmouth….in what would seem to be a one sided election the Democracy Party would spend twenty times the money that the Freedom Party would spend on political advertisement and when the smoke would clear on election day 2074 the people of the UCAS’s voice would be heard loud and clear as the Freedom Party McKeen and Prichard would win in a total landslide victory with a clean sweep of the UCAS in a victory never seen since the election of President George Washington.
Harvard and Dartmouth would concede early in the night to McKeen and Prichard but sadly that wasn’t the last we would hear from the Democracy Party and during the McKeen victory party a band of masked gunmen would assault the Regency in the Federal District and begin to open fire with automatic weapons and rush the stage in an attempt to assassinate McKeen and Prichard. Do to the quick thinking of the Federal District Police Department and the quick actions of both McKeen and Prichard igniting their Presidents Men’s sabres the gunmen would be quickly dispatched with the arrest of both Linda Harvard and George Jones. We would learn on that night that President Elect Oliver McKeen and Vice President Elect would be members of the not so secret order of Presidents Men with August as well being a Kingsman.
Their quick actions would save countless lives and as well warm the hearts of the people further, thus securing their reelection in 2078 long before they are sworn in. We would come to learn from the Department of Defence that Linda Harvard and George Jones are part of a order within the terrorist cell Free Bird known as the Committee and their hangings are scheduled for 31/12/74 time and location has not been given nor has a location been announced for their executions. According to Department of Defence Spokesman Mr. Eric Peterson their hangings will be recorded on trideo disc and than uploaded to the matrix for a free download after the fact do to national security as Free Bird is a serious terrorist threat to all free men and women.
15/11/74 – 14/12/74
On the evening of November 15th the nation and the world would be stunned and shocked by the blatant attacks by Death’s Hand Supreme Commander Alexander Church that would stun the world as his military would launch simultaneous attacks on the cities of Seattle, Boston, Richmond, London, Federal District, Boston Common Wealth, Portland Oregon, Moscow, Egypt, Albany, Berlin, Belfast, Sydney and Manchester England. The Deaths Hand satellite MERV strike would be followed by a ground assault in the UCAS, CSA, United Kingdom and Russia while most of these strikes and ground assaults would be stopped by area defences such as the Common Wealth of Boston, Moscow, Belfast, Portland and Manchester the other locations would not be so lucky and death and destruction would come swift and without rest.
The affected areas would be under a grand assault from all directions and the fighting would last for weeks in most locations with others ending quickly in only a few days or even a few hours for Egypt, Berlin and Sydney. The UCAS and her ally the United Kingdom would not be so lucky and the battle would rage on for weeks leaving hundreds of thousands killed or wounded and billions in property damage; for the first time in recorded history rebel and loyalist would stand back to back fighting for freedom and their way of life against the Deaths Hand.
The Freedom Patriots would send aid to the Federal District and other affected areas, while the Patriots sub group known as the Railroad would help refuges escape the war torn territories to safety; the Brotherhood of Mercenaries would set up MASH units throughout the nation to lend medical aid to the people and for the first time in many decades the Storm Riders would ride together once again and take on the Deaths Hand where ever they stood. In the Untied Kingdom Lord Neely would take command of the Royal Marines once again and command the eastern front and Welsh Baron Richard Longshanks would stand as a one man army against the invading Deaths Hand forces trying to invade Wales. The Confederates would unite to push the Hand out of Richmond while Confederate trapper Norris Davenport would apprehend Deaths Hand General Seth Mackintosh.
In Seattle the battle would be waged in Downtown, the Judaical District, The Waterways and Lynnwood; the teams the Tribe, The Harbingers, The Wolf Pack, The Mariners, The Rattlers, The Dirty Dozen and The Old Guard would take to the streets to help fight in the name of freedom. In Downtown they would aided by the unlikely might of Tracy Appleton, Ralph Lindel, Herschel Meisner, Jacob Sweeney, The One Man Army Klaus Eisenberg and HRM Assassins Neo, Scorpion, Locust and the Fiddler. This unlikely band of legendary terrorists and rebels would stand true against countless odds and they would make quick death for the Deaths Hand forces in Downtown.
Though Lynnwood would not be so lucky as the town of and for the Krieghoff’s would be the greatest hit receiving fire from the SOL systems and hundreds of well armed Hand enforcers, the Krieghoff’s security details would be outgunned and outnumbered and it would cost them many within their family and many innocent lives living within the suburban district; many untrained citizens would take up arms in revolt against the Deaths Hand and they would end up paying with their lives. The town of Lynnwood would end up being aided by Tutor Yates, Oliver Jamestown McKeen, Tayler Sturmridder, Jeffrey Ashmore, Woody Brunswick, Fredrick Mosley, Montgomery Hilliard and Rodger McMillion. The added aid from these legends would secure Lynnwood from the Deaths Hand but not at a great cost to the district and her people; the casualty report is high within Lynnwood and so is the total destruction as entire blocks and neighbourhoods where destroyed by the onslaught from the SOL systems.
The Waterways would be fought be a joint military effort commanded by Rough Rider General and Harbinger Commander Ralph Rivers and with his quick thinking and military tact he was able to fortify and entrap the Deaths Hand forces and remove the offending forces with extreme prejudice just what we have come to expect and love from a Patriot Special Forces Commander; the Waterways district would also be assaulted by the Saviours and Frogger’s Youth but do to an unlikely alliance with Director Jarred Mitchell those unskilled units would fail to catch the Harbingers, Wolf Pack, Mariners, Rattlers, Devil’s Reject’s, Ruination and Despicable’s off guard and with the magical aid of Governor Barney Pilgrim of the CLRA (Caribbean League Royal Army) the end was truly over before it began as the voodoo magic would unleash hell upon the Waterways and the Deaths Hand Forces just adding Alexander’s fallen to the ranks of Governor Pilgrim’s ever growing horde at Black Gate Cemetery.
The Judaical District would end up being defended by the Devil Rats, Regulators, Savages, Cowboys from Hell, Second Hand Devils and the Valkyries; Needless to say this was a sight to see outlaws and bikers fighting back to back with the Seattle Police Department against the cities greatest threat since General O’Brian. The fighting in the Judaical District would be the swiftest of the fight for Seattle but would end up being the fiercest and it wouldn’t be till Frank McDougall, Ronald Blackthorn, Harold Reynolds, Robert Grant, Richard Barnabe and David Klopeck would arrive to lend a hand the fighting would quickly shift and the PD would end up detaining the invading Deaths Hand military troops; many of the surrendering Hand troops would end up being assassinated by Skip Boardman and Morris Eccles. The PD would not approve of blatant murder of surrendering troops but being out gunned and surrounded by outlaws and rebels they choose to ignore a handful of cold blooded killings….it’s only the Deaths Hand anyways, those arrested on that night will be hanged in the coming days and months without trial and after interrogation according to Seattle Police Department Chief of Detectives Benjamin Mathews.
The War itself would wage on for multiple weeks in other areas and eventually on December 14th 2074 the Death’s Hand would surrender and retreat under the directive of Christopher Mulligan. During this time the Hand itself would go through a internal conflict as many within the leadership would evade capture by the Hand assassins and join the fray as a defender of decency, this would cause a power vacuum to form within the Deaths Hand as regional generals scurried for control of the vacant regions and regional enforcers jumped at the chance to steal control. Deaths Hand Supreme Admiral Peter Macbeth would stake claim as the new Supreme Commander and according to sources close to the Hand he would have any solider, commander or enforcer that was actively or knowingly involved in Alexander’s Blitzkrieg of 2074. This has many in the Hand petrified to move and for now it seems that Macbeth’s new iron grasp of the Hand will be well received by the world’s police and rebel forces; Peter Macbeth has promised to hand over any guilty members to the proper authority for trial or show verifiable proof of their execution as the Norwegian Admiral promises to halt any further global conquest and seeing that Admiral Macbeth is a man of his frozen word this Viking can be trusted and seeing he is as well hunting for Christopher Mulligan one can only hope for now. The Deaths Hand is not out of the water, just waiting now for a list of the guilty within the order as Macbeth’s forces track down those returning home after the conflict.
The Deaths hand would receive many resignations just before or during the invasion from their top officials and that list includes
High Commander Martin Hakett aka War Machine
High Commander Tudor Yates aka Professor
High Commander Adolf Ackerman aka Dictator
Inner Circle Member Ralph Lindel aka Ambassador
Inner Circle Member Lewis Gray aka Acme
Inner Circle Member Remington Walsh aka Librarian

Sniper Andrew Cannon aka Tracer
Regional General known only as Achilles
This is the list of known hand members that fled the Deaths Hand just before the worldwide assault was launched either they left on their own or where forced out do to an attempted assassination or arrest for treason under the directive of Supreme Commander Alexander Church.
<<Now the above mentioned members might not have been involved in the worldwide assault and some actually aided to affected areas and defended their people from the military they once served; this doesn’t give them a free pass as they are all wanted war criminals and should be treated as such. Their aid should only spare them the gallows pole but not life within prison and for some like the High Commanders and Regional Generals they shouldn’t be allowed to skate so easily and they should keep their date with the hangman for the crimes against humanity.>>
Alexander Church has been reported as killed in action at the hands of his former friends and allies High Commanders Martin Hakett and Adolf Ackerman footage of his death was received to the Department of Defence by cyber camera download of both Hakett and Ackerman showing the death of both Alexander and his personal guard and assassin Edwin Heyward. This footage has been shared and verified as factual with multiple agencies and news outlets thus verifying Admiral Peter Macbeth’s claim that his Hand is not Alexander’s and the guilty will be hunted down and punished. With the death of Alexander verified the people can rest easier going into the winter holidays knowing that the madman has met his maker and is rotting in hell.
02/74 – 11/74
A bit of back news but still just as important in April of 2074 the Mile High City would suffer a great tragedy and become yet another major UCAS city to be demolished during the revolution, Denver would be destroyed by the remnants of General James O’Brian’s specialised military task force. This assault would happen by surprise and leave the city sunken within the plateau it once sat upon, millions would perish in a instant and only a handful would escape the devastation. Many that escaped would be former Denver Guard Members that would become refuges here in Seattle and form a team known as Ruination lead by Dennis “Morgan” Holmes and seeking refuge within the Waterways with the Harbingers and under the command of General Ralph Rivers. The Members of Ruination seek a blood price on the UCAS for the death of their countryman and citizens of their once home of Denver Colorado.
General James O’Brian would be assassinated by members of the Unforgiven after being trapped like a rat by the Harbingers, Wolverines and Mr. Black and the order of execution given by the Noel Forscythe’s daughter Farrus Forscythe who felt it only fitting that her father be the one who brings the General to his demise seeing it was James who double crossed the Unforgiven and attempted to execute Noel by firing squad in the 2020’s. Justice was served under the watchful eye of the Harbingers, Dervish of the Wolverines, Mr. Black, Duke and the Unforgiven and his body was left to rot on the banks of the Emerald River; his head would be severed post mortem by Farrus and given to Duke as verification of death. The footage of his execution would be released in April of 2074 and it would show the witnesses gleefully mocking the captured and beaten General and ignoring his pleas for a military trial; Goblin of the Unforgiven would be heard saying “Were was your mercy for Noel, all those years ago.” and the Weatherman was captured saying “Ghost, you were one of us and he was your friend and you still betrayed us….take your punishment like a man not a child.” Mr. Black stated “You executed my kid brother as he cried on the pole, now it’s only fitting you die here blubbering like a child…..this is your fate and time for you to reap what you sow you bastard.” James O’Brian would die begging for his life and for a trial as the Unforgiven would open fire into the Generals body and once James fell dead Farrus would tear his head from his body and hand it to Duke who tucked it into a bag and headed back to his waiting river boat. Dervish of the Wolverines would cut his uniform off of him and take his patches as a trophy and further desecrate the body by lighting her match off the dead generals ass and smoke her cigar in celebration. Before leaving him to rot on the bank of the river in the mud they moved his decapitated remains away from the waters edge as so he wouldn’t be washed away during heavy rains. This footage was so disturbing that many media outlets choose to not show the entire thing and only announce the murder of General James O’Brian and those that did show it in it’s completion would receive both praise and death threats from loyal upset citizens; the Generals murder is the most pirated video on the matrix today.
Within the Federal District after the ending of the conflict with the Deaths Hand the UCAS Military was giving a state of the nation address as the newly appointed High Commander of the Special Forces General Ronald Davids was giving his address to the many anointed media outlets….Seattle World News was not invited. His address was interrupted by Special Director Jarred Mitchell of the Freedom Task Force, General Davids would welcome Mitchell to join him on the stage and speak on behalf of the Task Force and there current success rate in capturing the rebels and bringing justice to the UCAS. Jarred Mitchell looking worse for ware and not well kept, pressed and polished like he normally is, having shown further ageing in his hair and face approached the podium he paused just before the stage and reached behind his head and ripped off a weird looking mechanical device and looked up at the camera and stated “Fuck You O’Brian, Fuck You Salazar, Fuck You Legion…..I am free and my thoughts are mine alone!” The media, military and staff looked shocked by Director Jarred Mitchell’s outburst as he reached into his suit pocket and pulled out and ignited a white President’s Men’s sabre and cut down General Ronald Davids in a single strike and than turned his attack onto the approaching guards and with ease he would bring down dozens of trained soldiers and aids; the media and other guests would flee in horror to the demonstration of treason. Director Mitchell would turn to the camera before it went dark and publicly address Colonial, Gargoyle, Mr. Black, Watcher, Director, Anchor and Winter Rat and apologise for what he has done and he is no longer the puppet of Free Bird and he was mistaken and should never have agreed to have worked for them.” He also stated that he will remain at the scene of his most recent murder and await his fate whatever it maybe, he would not resist and accept any fate they have in store and even if that meant he was to swing or be cut down where he stood he deserved everything and more; Director Mitchell than put his sabre on the floor and sat down the feed was cut and went dark.
According to Eric Peterson of the Department of Defence Jarred Mitchell was taken into custody and brought to the Black Site known as the Post Office for interrogation and his fate is currently uncertain; though my contacts have also reported that Director Mitchell has not only murdered General Ronald Davids and the guards and aids at the press conference, he as well butchered and gassed the entire Freedom Task Force that wouldn’t give up the fight for the UCAS and those that would leave he warned them that if they ever take up arms again against the rebels they would be hunted to the ends of the earth and he would make certain that not only did they suffer a slow death their families, friends and relatives would also be hunted and executed as he had given the order for total cleansing and if a single rebel is hurt by a member of the Task Force and he would hand over all his documents to the rebels once arrested they would have no where to hide.
Mitchell currently sits within the Post office awaiting his fate at the hands of the people he hunted and double crossed; Seattle World News will report more on Director Jarred Mitchell as it comes in.
Seattle has turned it’s holiday lights on and all Winter Holiday Festivals are still currently planned as a way to show the people that Seattle will prevail through these most recent tragic times, the cities landmark the Space Needle is scheduled to reopen it’s doors on December 31st 2074 and is currently selling tickets for it’s New Years Bash at 150 Credits each and tickets are available through the box office on the matrix.
Seattle Police Department is currently hiring new officers; See the Seattle Police Department Website for hiring requirements and to fill out an application.

The Mayors Office and Seattle Police Department
On 24/12/74 Seattle Police Departments Joint Task Force arrested the serial killer known as the Hijacker and brought to end a 9 month long investigation. The arrest came after Seattle Police received an anonymous tip was called into the hotline and Captain Sherman Willard and Incident Commander Flynn Sykes took direct action and personally investigated the Jobs Well Shelter in Waterside and discovered an abandoned home near the freeway exit.
Willard and Sykes observed blood within the residence and could hear calls of distress coming from within the residence. They entered the home without a warrant under the Welfare Act of 2001 and discovered a unidentified minor of colour bleeding from a recent gunshot wound to their side and bound with duct tape. Sykes called in for Rescue One and Willard would continue to search the house while the rest of the Joint Task Force and C-Swat Division would be in route. Willard says he was securing the location and searching for the suspect if they where still on sight; this goes against Seattle Police Department procedure but with Captain Willard’s quick thinking he was able to both prevent a violent showdown with police and as well save the life of the victim.
Willard would discover the suspect known to police as the Hijacker within the basement and quickly subdue the suspect and place the Hijacker under arrest. Police would discover evidence of the Hijackers crimes and many military grade weapons and electronic devices. Commissioner Reid would go on to say that Captain Sherman Willard and First Lieutenant Flynn Sykes would show true bravery and heroism in the face of uncertain danger, and the Emerald City can rest easy knowing that the Hijacker would be within police custody.
The Hijacker identified as Herman Scott 28 from Providence Rhode Island has been pretending to be disabled and homeless would lure kind hearted citizens into helping him with transport. Once Herman Scott would enter the vehicle the true terror would begin. Scott would hold the citizen at gunpoint and force them to drive to Waterside where he would slowly torture, rape and murder them over the course of a three day period. Police would discover the remains of 15 of his male victims and the charred skeletal remains of 8 of his female victims. Willard reports that they suspect the Hijacker has more victims than they have remains for, but as of his arrest Scott has declined to provide any further information and also has waived his rights and failed to hire an attorney.
Willard states that Herman Scott will be tried for 23 counts of First Degree Murder with Special Circumstances, ADA Jack Malone has refused to offer a deal under the request of Captain Willard and First Lieutenant Flynn. Pretrial is scheduled for January 15th 2075 and Herman Willard is being held at Seattle Super Max without bail.
It’s been a busy week for the Joint Task Force of Seattle Police Department as they arrested Xavier Truman of the Bounty Hunters Guild and Kingsman for Treason against the Royal Crown. An international arrest warrant would be issued by the Steel Legion for Xavier Truman after British Intelligence MI7 would discover evidence connecting Truman to the selling of national secrets to the media and as well to the Tir Government. He as well had been selling sensitive information from within the UCAS and the Guild, this intelligence would come after a three year investigation would come to an end after an under cover operation would discover the direct connection between the Tir and Xavier Truman.
Xavier Truman a registered Mariner would be detained by Theodore Delcord, Donald Mathews and Edward Churchill before being handed over personally to Lieutenant Rusty Rutherford Homicides Incident Commander and than given to Captain Willard who would gain the credit for the arrest. ADA Martin Harrison acting under the authority of the Steel Legion as the High Justiciar would review the evidence before Truman before passing sentence.
Martin Harrison with the help of his assistant Gary Swimming would sentence Xavier Truman to a swift execution where he would be hanged by the neck till dead. Once Harrison pronounced the sentence signing the death warrant where he would break the nip of his pen after following judicial tradition. Xavier was taken to a place of execution and within the hour he would be hanged and cremated. Witnesses report that Xavier Truman attempted the stiff upper lip, though once the noose was in sight he broke down and began begging for his life and as the hood was placed over his head tears could be seen rolling down his face. Harrison and Swimming were total professionals and they ended Xavier Truman’s life swiftly as promised and the entire execution process took only 6 seconds Truman’s body was left to hang for an additional 30 minutes to confirm death before being taken down and prepared for cremation. His name was stricken from the log books of the Brotherhood, Kingsman and Mariners and a execution note left in his Bounty Hunters Record.
Reports within the Federal District have come in and the UCAS Senate has confirmed General Ralph Rivers as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. President River Welsh would like to thank the Senate for delaying their holiday break to finish these important confirmations before the years end. President Elect Oliver McKeen Jamestown stated that he would retain all those confirmed by President Welsh into his incoming administration.
Captain Sherman Willard of the Joint Task Force would be called out to a multiple homicide with special circumstances just after midnight as the church bells would ring in Christmas Morning. Willard with his team would enter the home of Gregory Polk in Seattle’s Metro District and discover the youngest son 14 performing a Blood Ritual within the home. The bodies of his parents Gregory Polk and Susan Polk as well as his older brother and sister and his toddler brothers body would be laid out on the floor within the points of the star. Their throats had been sliced open and hearts removed with a black pillar candle within the exposed chest cavity, the young killer would be found covered in blood and attempting to read from a black book with archaic writing.
Captain Willard being a physical adept would look into the astral plane and detect the boy was not magically active and unable to both cast the intended ritual and as well unable to read from the book found at the scene. The boy would be arrested at the scene not before he attempted to kill the arresting officer, Sherman Willard would be thwart the attack, disarm the suspect and place him within custody. The Seattle Police Department would discover the murder weapon, and a detailed and disturbing decree of murder, the suspect would confess to police regarding his crimes and with the written decree the Death Penalty is required in all multiple homicides.
ADA Gary Swimming alerted the suspect that he will be hanged for his crimes and their will be no deal for such a nefarious scheme. The suspect began to cry and act like the child he was not the killer he was portraying, Gary Swimming and Sherman Willard would state that this is a dark day for Seattle when the children begin to emulate the evil they see on the screen and now they have to execute the youngest prisoner to date. Sherman Willard would go on to say in all my years as a detective I have never come across a suspect this callous and cold at such a young age. He fears that if this is the trend in the coming years, the coffins will have to get smaller as the law does not discriminant and as much as he wishes there was another suitable punishment for the young, some just have to swing.
The unnamed suspect has already faced his judge and was found guilty and sentenced to hang by the neck till dead on December 25th at 23:59 hours at a undisclosed location.
Seattle PD has issued this statement in the wake of the nights events.

The Seattle Elite has opened it’s doors and has begun the first training process of the Elite Military Unit within the Waterways Military Compound. 50 initial recruits where taken from Fort Lewis to the Waterways in the early morning hours to begin a three month brutal training period where reports indicate that less than 20% will complete the training and there is a 70% chance of a recruit being killed or seriously injured during the training process. The training models the many US Military Special Forces Training Programs and it’s brutality is remarked at being excellent for preparing a solider for the reality of warfare.
The recruits would arrive for training at 0500 and instead of celebrating Christmas they would be subjected to harsh conditions, intensive training and ruthless aggression from the Drill Instructors. This might sound cruel but in reality it is the best form of training a recruit can receive and it will weed out those that are not strong enough mentally and physically to handle the needed duties of a quick response tactile response team.
President River Welsh and the UCAS Senate has decreed that December 25th 2074 is the birth date of the nations newest military order and the first recruits are making history on this date. We can add the Emerald City Elite to the Marine Corp, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard they will have full government sanction and funding.
To the first class of the Emerald City Elite I say Congratulations and Good Luck recruits, may God watch over you and aid you in your endeavours. As a veteran of the Navy Seals I fully understand the harsh and brutal training your enduring and from what I heard your school makes Seal School look like preschool and we had the roughest school to date….Semper Fi.
Reports from within the California Free State indicate that at 2030 hours within Compton a terrorist attack from a Satellite Orbital Laser system has struck a four block neighbourhood centred on the defunct Image Satellite Television Company building. This strike comes only days after the holidays and has left the Orange Township district of Compton devastated and left the neighbourhood fully destroyed.
This attack struck during the prime time hours when a majority of the citizens where in their homes do to the mandated curfew put in place by the LAPD. Rescue crews are out sifting through the rubble searching for survivors. Though currently officials are fearing the worst and the casualty rate is currently sitting at 500 people killed and many more might never be discovered as the laser system turns living matter into nothing more than ash.
Reports from the Centre For Free State Defence has indicated that the Terrorist Attack has been instituted from within the India Territory of the Deaths Hand and the Free State Senate is meeting to discuss if military action is needed. The Asian Counsel has also been indicated in the authorised attack as the firing programs have been discovered within the mainframes of both North Korea and China with a communications program linked to systems within New Delhi.
The Free State is asking for assistance in the defence of the people from the United Canadian American State, Confederate American States, Free State of Las Vegas, Free State of Seattle and the Common Wealth. The Free State Senate has promised that if aid is given they will enforce stricter governs on the Warlords of Southern California and as well decree Asia to be an enemy of the Free World and allow the UCAS to occupy Los Angeles County to enforce law and order.
The Free State worries that similar attacks will come in the future seeing additional targeted locations where found in the mined data systems. The Chinese, Korean and Indian Governments are refusing to speak to the press regarding the attacks and are claiming that they are not behind the act of war. The World Court has already removed China, India and North Korea from the United Assembly and has decreed that they have to pay for the damage and loss of life. Also they decreed only a hour after the attack that if the Free State goes to war with India than the United Assembly will not aid India nor any of it’s allies. India already decreed a terrorist state by the United Assembly and World Court do to it’s Deaths Hand involvement.
General Kringle has issued zero statements about the attack on the Free State, though Supreme Commander Macbeth has issued a decree stating that the New Hand was not responsible for the attack and he did not authorise such a show of force on civilians. He can not speak for General Kringle as he has stated that General Kringle is an enemy of the New Hand and is guilty of treasonous behaviour, he wouldn’t put it passed General Kringle or the other hold outs from Alexanders Hand to want to wage war o the innocent out of revenge for the slaying of Alexander Church.
