On the 23rd August 1944, the Romanian people chose their true destiny of becoming a free, rich and prosperous nation.
On this special day, 17 years ago, Romania switched sides, in favour of the great and mighty allies, overthrowing the fascist government.
Through the help of the USSR, our great Communist Party rose to power and by 1947 The kingdom of Romania had been overthrown,
and the PCR had become the leading party of the nation.
Today we commemorate all of the dead soldiers that fought in that monstrous war, but also celebrate the victory of the
party, and of the people!
Today the comrade adressed the people:
"Comrades, it is today 17 years ago, when the Romanian people finally rose from the dead, and decided their own destiny!
We, the romanians are going to continue this progress of brotherhood, unity and solidarity for centuries more!
Right now we are focusing on developing infrastructure throughout all of our homeland, but we are also going
to improve foreign relations with all nations of the world!
We would also want to pursue a form of a "10 years plan", meaning we would create a more industrialized socialist state within this period,
meaning a higher GDP and GDP per capita. Our plan is to have, by 1980, a GDP per capita of around $8k in a continuous growth, without any loans
from the east or west.
The crowd gathered there went on to chant beautiful slogans about our dear leader
"Rotaru sa ne traiasca Romania sa-n floreasca"
"Partidul, tara, poporul!"
"Partidul, Rotaru, Romania!"
"Poporul, Rotaru, Romania!"
Parade in honor of the party, people and the dear leader
Our beloved leader at the 23rd august speech

- RANGERS TO THE RESCUE!
May 1961 - Vientiane, Kingdom of Laos
| The Imperial State of Vietnam has, in its time since reunifying with the Republic of Cochinchina, spent most of its efforts focused on internal development, economic modernization, and social liberalization. Under Emperor Bao Dai, the non-confrontational Imperial State has stayed uninvolved in the War in Laos, barring occasional commando raids and airstrikes against fugitive Viet Minh camps directly across the border. However, following the events of the Lao Coups the past year, Emperor Bao Dai's more hawkish advisors have recommended that the Imperial State enter the conflict against the Pathet Lao who have, since 1952, been directly allied with and aiding the Viet Minh's attacks against the Imperial State. As a matter of national security and regional stability, his advisors have posited, the Imperial State must do its part to bring about an end to the conflict. |
| General Nguyễn Khánh, Commander of the I Corps of the IAVN, has specifically been the man most responsible for pressuring Bao Dai into taking the fight into Laos. On 6 May, approval is granted by the Emperor via decree to allow military operations by two Ranger battalions in Laos. After this news reaches the White House, a deal is arranged allowing an air lift of the two battalions via Air America C-47s from their base at Vinh to Vientiane, the capital city of Laos. Between the 6th and 14th of May, General Nguyễn Khánh organizes the two Ranger battalions - the 21st and 37th Ranger battalions of his own I Corps - and oversees coordination with Air America and the Royal Lao Army. At the culmination of the preparation phase, on 14 May, the first shipment of 28 of a total of 1,200 Rangers are loaded into one of two C-47s which will be used to transport the battalions, and arrive in Vientiane after around six hours of flying. After landing at the Wattay International Airport Military Base, they unload their rifles, ammunition, and other equipment and are taken in chartered busses to a ground base installation near Vientiane. |
| Between 14 May and 21 May, the rest of the 1,200 light infantry are flown into the Wattay Military Base, while the troops on the ground spend the time organizing their weaponry and equipment, meeting with local RLA officers, and securing defensible positions around the city. The commanding officer of the 12th Ranger Group, Major Phạm Tiến Dũng, also flies to Vientiane on 19 May to meet with RLA counterparts and formulate a potential offensive by Royal Lao Army infantry and Vietnamese Rangers to relieve the enveloped Royal Lao Navy and French Air Force position at Luang Prabang. |
A Malian Malady
|The Malian situation began to deteriorate since 1960. The reinstitution of slavery, and the forced conscription of children, had seen many adults and free citizens put out of work especially those who had worked on the Green Wall, and Rail line. These men with nothing else to turn to began protesting. A group of 10,000 men, veterans, construction workers, socialists and conservatives all took to the streets of Timbuktu to protest the Malian government's actions. The Malian government responded with the deployment of soldiers to crush the protests. In an event known as the Timbuktu Tragedy Malian soldiers, Keïta Youth Members, and even some common criminals were allowed to partake in a massacre of members of protests. Assaults, Rapes, murders, and looting were all common as the Malian employed mercenaries descended upon Timbuktu. It's estimated upwards of a thousand people died, with executions in the government square being applauded by Prime Minister Beavogui. The Timbuktu Tragedy had the adverse effect of pushing many moderate protesters to extremism, with many joining the PWAF or the Traditionalist Front in Mauritania and Senegal.|
|All the bloodshed in the world couldn't save the Malian economy however as rising unemployment and weakening government grasp over anything outside of military bases and major cities, and a rampantly growing black market and corruption of government officials saw Malian finances go into total free fall.|
Official Report from the Socialist Republic of Romania
August 1961, Bucharest
The situation in Mali concerns the government of Romania, as it thinks this is a threat of peace in the African continent.
The Socialist Republic of Romania, would advise the government of Mali to resign, or it could lead to serious problems within Africa,
and the whole world.
We would also like to inform you, that if the Malian government cannot get a grip on the economy, Romania would like to
help with the reconstruction of cities, factories and infrastructure in exchange of money.
If however, the Malian government continues it`s very inhumane regime, the Socialist Republic of Romania would intervine in the political
scene from Mali.
The policies of slavery and conscriptrion of children in the army, and the horrible crimes commited in Timbuktu, are everything but
a process of peace throughout the African continent.
The situation is fragile, but, Romania firmly supports the Socialists from Mali.
Once a stable society is formed once again, Romania is open to diplomatic and Trade relations with Mali.
Again, we are open to send romanian architects and construction workers to help to rebuild the Malian infrastrcuture and all important buildings.
Prime Minister Beavogui sat back in his chair reading the declaration, his generals sat in front of him quietly. Beavogui then began to laugh, a soft chuckle, but it soon exploded into roaring laughter. “Romania? What are they gonna send over their tugboat navy and blockade our coasts? We've spent the last year under the French blockade and we haven't lost faith, why would a third world soviet bloc state cause me any fear.” He turned to his secretary “My dear please respond to the Romanians immediately. To the state of Romania. Not only do you lack the right to speak on the domestic matters of a sovereign nation, but you also lack sufficient force to enforce your will outside of what the Soviets will help you project. Please refrain from making statements on the state of Mali, Long Live Mansa Modibo.”
- PEACE IS SIGNED WITH THE FLN, PROMPTING MUTINY IN ALGERIA!
21 April 1961 - Ouargla, Oasis District, French Algeria
| Two days ago, President Charles de Gaulle announced to the nation via radio and television address that the French government, along with the Front de libération nationale(FLN), had concluded secret negotiations in Algiers which has formalized into the signing of a treaty initiating a peace agreement between France and the FLN, establishing a precedent for future political and ethnic relations between France and the Algerian people, and establishing FLN control of the southern majority of Algerian territory known as the French Sahara. The Franco-Algerian Accords, which has seen the Republican government issue a formal apology for historic injustice against Algerians by the Imperial government of 1853-1940, will oversee a transition to autonomy for southern Algeria as a French Union Integrated Nation known as the Saharan Federation, a democratic state under the control of the FLN and the FLN's current civilian leader, Krim Belkacem, as President of the Federation. |
| As the Treaty is sent to the French Senate for ratification by the legislature, a group of French Fourth Army infantry and French Foreign Legionnaires have made clear their intention that they will not, in defiance of the peace agreement, withdraw from their wartime positions in the deep south of the Algerian desert. Troops stationed in Ouargla, the designated capital city of the Saharan Federation, have seized government offices and public infrastructure, imprisoned soldiers and officers not loyal to their mutiny, and have issued a public statement declaring their intention to remain in their posts until a new settlement is agreed upon by France and the FLN which will not 'throw away French military victory'. According to the mutiny's highest ranked officer, a Harki Colonel of the Fourth Army's 8th Algerian Infantry Division, the rebelling soldiers reject the terms of the peace agreement and 'refuse to accept signing away victory in a war which has been won'. |
| In nearby Ghardaia, at In Salah, in Tamanrasset, and in Adrar, other units of the 4th Army and even the 1st Foreign Parachute Regiment of the French Foreign Legion have seized public infrastructure and declared fealty to the putsch, announcing their intentions to remain at their posts indefinitely. The 1st FPR's leading officer, Commander Hélie de Saint Marc, has traveled to Ouargla from Algiers in the past two days to join the mutinying infantry and aid in the tactical efforts to maintain their posturing against both loyal French 4th Army units and the FLN. French military response to the mutiny, since its declaration hours ago has been all but nonexistent as President Charles de Gaulle meets with members of the cabinet, the general staff, and other important figures in the military. General Raoul Salan, commander of all French Forces in Algeria, has been recalled from his headquarters in Algiers to Paris to meet with the rest of the French government to discuss a plan to combat the rebels. |
| Support for the Mutineers, and indeed the mutineers' ranks themselves, are largely based in Algeria's harkis - pro-French Arabs and Berbers who have aided the French Army and French Foreign Legion throughout the war. Other, European-born members of the 4th Army and the Foreign Legion completely opposed to any Algerian independence have also joined the ranks of the mutiny in the past day, however the prevailing sentiment so far seems to be that the tactical gains of the military since 1956 against the FLN in Southern Algeria not be squandered to appease a political victory. |
| The French Senate, in the meantime, will be deliberating upon the Treaty before voting on its ratification. With the War in Algeria still not formally ended, President de Gaulle will most likely authorize military assets such as jet attack aircraft to begin turning their fire away from the FLN per the agreements of the ceasefire, and towards the mutineers. However, a cohesive military action is, at this time, still days away as the French government and military congregates and deliberates. |

- Operation Goldmine: Phase 1, The Invasion Part III: Assault on La Paz
September 1, 1961
- The Western Liberation Army fought its way across Bolivia, towards La Paz. The fighting was fierce and resistance became heavier, the closer to La Paz the WLA became. The Peruvian military force was now fighting in El Alto, the city to La Paz's immediate west. The buildings were being used by both sides for cover. Large sections of the city were on fire from both deliberate fires being set and from explosions. El Alto's airport has been rendered useless during the fighting. The Peruvian military force was now within about 5 km of the city limits of La Paz. The Peruvian military force in the area was also placing obstacles in the streets to act as emplacements to aide in the battles with Bolivian soldiers. The Peruvian supply lines now ran all the way to the Bolivian city of El Alto.
- Meanwhile, the Bolivian forces began evacuating important political officials to Sant Cruz de la Sierra. The military of Bolivia focused themselves on the western side of La Paz. Criminal activity and looting in La Paz increased dramatically, as police were called in to help defend the city and what resources were inside the city were drained from the civilians and given to the military in an effort to shore up the city's defenses. This caused riots to happen as well, which damaged large sections of La Paz. The financial situation in Bolivia collapsed, as the military of Bolivia spent more and more money that it did not have, through loans. The value of the Bolivian currency collapsed and food and commodities became too expensive for most Bolivians to legally afford. By this time, it was finally discovered that as much as 10% of Bolivia's currency was counterfeit, a fact discovered when the government found that much of the money in its own possession had discrepancies in its design and number marks.
- Meanwhile, the Peruvian military planned to do a final push towards La Paz, soon. The military planned to end off Phase 1 of the war by taking La Paz, and the final strategy to do so was determined and the preparations were being made. The plan to take La Paz was determined to be a flank, which would allow Peruvian forces to surround Bolivian forces. The War at this point caused major losses on both sides. Many civilians were also caught in the crossfire. In order to get some to change sides, the Peruvian military set up a military hospital behind the front lines that would treat both military and civilian injuries. The Peruvian military believed that this would convince Bolivians to accept Peruvian rule.
