ROAD TO CRISIS - RTC:



Altis has been an important location in the Mediterranean since its early beginnings when the Phoenicians settled on the island. Over the following millenium Altis became part of Carthage, the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire which ended in 1878 when Altis was claimed as a British Protectorate and subsequently integrated into the British Empire.

Altis was of strategic importance to the British during the First World War due to the proximity of the island to the Gallipoli peninsula. In February 1942 two of the three battalions which made up the Altis Regiment began training for Operation Torch and continued fighting overseas until VE day in 1945.

After the Second World War Altis was granted the right to self govern with Dimitris Lara and his Altis Labour Party forming the first government in 1948. Over the following decade the island saw rise in post colonial nationalism, during which time Cyprus and then Malta gained independence. On the 24th of June 1966 after years of debate and negotiations, Altis achieved independence becoming the State of Altis and Stratis and joining the Commonwealth of Nations. Less than two years later on the 3rd of April 1968 Altis declared itself the Republic of Altis and Stratis replacing the head of state, Queen Elizabeth II with a government appointed president.

The next 19 years saw the republic struggle through various reforms as multiple governments attempted to lose colonial ties. In 1987 the Republic withdrew their application to join the European Union in protest of the blocking of the application from Turkey.

The 1992 elections saw the Altis Labour Party gain their first majority in 12 years. Their western aligned views were seen as an opportunity; in October 1993 the British lead Operation Medway began. The operation was seen as a chance to bring Altis firmly under NATO influence and secure long standing control over the Medditerean. Initially Medway consisted of a small number of advisors assisting with training. By June 1994 the number of British and US troops stationed on Altis had skyrocketed, resulting in the creation of Task Force Summer Shield which was designed to overhaul the Altis Armed Forces making them capable of providing independent far reaching protection in the region.

In 1996 the Altis Justice Party won back a strong majority. The next two years brought an increase in anti corruption protests and from the winter of 1998 there were regular clashes with security forces. This culminated on the 3rd of February 2000 when mass arrests and raids on suspected protester’s homes swept the island. By the 2004 election minor concessions had been made to the hardline approach of the government. Such steps saw a decrease in protests and continued the working partnership with NATO forces. On the morning of the 31st of July 2004 the Altis Labour Party headquarters were raided with the opposition leader and multiple members of their shadow cabinet arrested on embezzlement charges. Within a month, all twelve who had been arrested were found guilty in a closed court and sentenced. In response to the arrests violent attacks on infrastructure and security forces began in the north and in November the government conceded there was a legitimate threat from a determined insurgency resulting in the deployment of the Army to attempt to subdue the instigators.

International disagreements peaked on the 24th of August 2006 when the Republic of Altis and Stratis was suspended from the Commonwealth of Nations for human rights violations against political activists.This was seen by the Altis government as western meddling in a purely domestic issue. On the 18th of December 2006 the Republic cancelled Operation Medway and Task Force Summer Shield began withdrawing. The last British forces left the island on the 26th January 2007.

On the 20th of February 2007 the president and numerous ministers were visiting a youth group in the north of Kavala when an improvised explosive device hidden in a delivery van was detonated. Fourteen people were killed, the youngest victim only 13. Dozens more severely wounded including the president. The date has become known as “The Day of Fallen Petals” in memory of those who lost their lives.

Within hours General Akhanteros declared an nationwide emergency imposing martial law. The military effectively seized all power, imposing strict curfews and suspending the police force as well as restricting media activities. General Akhanteros quickly blamed the Freedom In Altis insurgents and vowed to eradicate the terrorist group. On the 9th of April General Akhanteros declared sweeping changes to the military including his new role as Head of the Altis Armed Forces. At the same time internal purges of the military and civil services removed those who were labelled dissidents and terrorist sympathisers.

On the 24th of November 2009 after 2 years, 9 months and 4 days of conflict, thousands of arrests and deaths, widespread reports of disappearances and alleged torture and bombings by both sides, the Altis Armed Forces declared victory over the FIA. However there was no mention of returning power to the legitimate government, many of whom were by this point under house arrest or imprisoned.

In early 2014 the AAF deployed troops to Malden to support the revolutionary opposition and contain Greek expansion. After a week of conflict that tore the island in half a ceasefire was agreed with a large, uninhabited buffer zone being created. Greek troops withdrew from the North and were replaced with a British lead UN peacekeeping force.

After 4 years of the Malden ceasefire holding, fighting flared in the Buffer Zone. The cause of the conflict remains a disputed fact but the Republic quickly blamed British troops for firing at a AAF checkpoint. The British Foreign Office advised all British nationals in Altis to leave the country fearing repercussions.

On the 16th of May, two days after the fighting on Malden, police on Altis arrested the last 14 British citizens attempting to leave the island. They were quickly passed into military custody accused of funding terrorist movements on Altis. Diplomatic attempts to contact the detained have been unsuccessful and intelligence indicates they are being held at a camp created for FIA terrorists.




SITUATION:

Whiskey Company was deployed to extract the 14 British Nationals held at Molos Airfield. Evidence was found that all 14 hostages had been executed and attempts had been made to cover up their murder. An AAF counterattack forced 1 troop to withdraw to the North side of Molos Airfield and an aerial assault on the Royal Navy fleet forced them to retreat.

Following the commando’s raid on Molos Airfield and the attack on local military infrastructure the AAF are still struggling to contain the situation. Their forces on the peninsula are fragmented and their failed counterattack has left them disorientated. Intelligence indicates the AAF have not yet identified the size or composition of the British forces and are cautious to over commit. While this is not the case and Whiskey Company is still alone on the island contact has been established with Mediterranean Command and relief is inbound from the original fleet.

Before this happens Whiskey Company will conduct an attack on the enemy positions around Sofia and secure the town in a show of force to dissuade any AAF aggression which could threaten the nighttime movement.
