Cotland colonize Tasmania [Earth II]

After the former regime in Tasmania crumbled, Cottish peace-keeping forces landed on the island, securing the major cities, including the capitol city Hobart. The few inhabitants that still were on the island after the colony had been deserted by the former regime cheered the Cottish troops of the 47th, 29th and 60th Infantry Brigades and the 2nd Armoured Brigade as they drove by in their Fuchs 2 IFVs, followed closely by medics from the 4th Medical Battalion, who stopped to check and aid the people if they needed it.

Meanwhile, engineers from the 7th Engineering Battalion were busy at work constructing airfields and ports for the reinforcements to arrive at. Soon, several thousands civilians would move thru here, making Tasmania a thriving colony under the Cottish standart.

In Tunis, the Generals and Admirals celebrated, along with the rest of the capitol, and indeed, the whole of Cotland. Another piece of land was theirs.

'Operation: Tasmanian Tiger' was a success.

OOC: I own Australia. And I suggest you get the hell out of my territory before I force you to. My government has not collapsed.

Note that I'm not recognizing any forces on Tasmania at this time.

IC:

As the Cottish fleets approached the waters of the Militant Imperium, a massive wolfpack of Seawolf and Virginia SSNs were lurking in the dark depths of the Pacific, having shadowed the Cotland forces since they got within 1000 kilometres of Tyrandisan territory.

Meanwhile, the Tasmanian Defense Fleet, a two hundred warship-strong juggernaut, was swiftly mobilized to meet this threat. As soon as the Cottish host entered territorial waters, they would be totally annihilated.

In the skies above Tyrandisan waters, E-2E AWACS and TSF-28A/B/D fighter patrols flew BARCAPs, to ensure Tyrandisan aerial superiority.

There would be retribution for this act of blatant aggression against Tyrandis, sure enough...

Official Statement from the Office of the Executor

"Well, citizens of Cotland, your government has decided to sacrifice your nation in the hopes of stealing some of the sovereign territory of the Militant Imperium.

I give you this one warning: Turn back from our waters or we will respond accordingly.

The armies of Tyrandis will not hesitate to slaughter your children, rape your wives and daughters, set your fields to the torch, and commit an act of utter extermination. If Cotland wishes to live, they will pull out of their mad enterprise."

In an official release to Tyrandis, Reichschancellor Einheit said the following:

Any unwarranted attack against the *sovereign* nation of Cotland will be responded by the North Germanian Kriegsmarine and L├╝ftwaffe.

In other words, if any Cottish vessel or any Cottish soldier, civilian, medic, or other personnel is purposefully killed or injured by Tyrandis, rest assured that North Germania will not hesitate to mobilize its Northern fleet in response.

As a *territory* of Australia, Tasmania is not part of Australia prime, unless otherwise claimed by yourself, Tyrandis. If so, then there is confusion on both parts of myself and Cotland. If this is the case, I apologize in advance for the following:

As far as practicing genocide on the people of Cotland, North Germania will respond by invading all of Australia, claiming it as its own, giving half of the land to Cotland, and setting your entire country under Germanian military rule.

Believe me, you do not want that.

And if you try to use the cop-out that it is none of my business, IT IS. Cotland is my ally and is currently supporting me in the European theater. As well, I too am part of the community of Earth II.

Consider these facts before making another ill-advised threat. This time, towards me.

I politely but firmly advise that you handle this situation in a more peaceful manner, or God have mercy on your souls.

As the telegram from Tyrandis came in to the Elected Leader about the Tasmania situation, he immediately called a crisis meeting.

"Ladies and gentlemen, apparently the island of Tasmania isn't without leadership afterall. Currently, we have 5 brigades and a engineer battalion there, as well as a fleet sailing there. If anyone don't have any good reasons as to why they should stay and start a major incident, I'm giving the order for them to pull out. They will be of better use in Belarus, fighting alongside our Germanian allies, who have supported us in the colonization. I do however find that their forces are of better use in Belarus, and should not be wasted in an invasion. Do anyone object?"
Noone in the cabinet objected.

"Very well. General" - the Elected Leader adressed the Chief of Staff - "order our troops to prepare to transport back to Cottish territory. No soldier will fire at any Tyrandian unless fired upon. The retreat will happen immediately. Also, send a message to Tyrandis, where we appologize for the intrusion, and tell them that the troops are being recallled as we speak. Give them our deepest appologies. That will be all."

To: Tyrandis
From: Cotland
Subject: Tasmania

Dear sir,
on behalf of the Cottish people, I appologize for the intrution into the Tyrandian territory of Tasmania. We will withdraw our troops immediately. Please allow our transports to moor in Tasmania and collect the troops. We once again appologize for the intrusion. I promise you that no Tyrandian citizen has been injured by Cottish personell. We were there to help the people, since we believed that the government in Tasmania had crumbled.

I once again appologize, and hope to restore the mutual respect between our two nations. I also promise you that the people responsible for this giant fuck-up will be hunted down and punished. We thank you for letting us know about this mistake, and we appologize once again.

Sincerely,
Thomas Rothsky
Elected Leader of the Free Land of Cotland

Dear sir,
I thank you for your support in this matter, but in this case, our intelligence people fucked up. We don't wish to fight a war against an enemy larger then us in the other side of the world. The logistics would be hell, since the nearest Cottish base is in the Falklands. The people that fucked up will be found and made an example of.

The troops in Tasmania will be withdrawed and after a little R&R in Cotland, will be sent to Belarus to support our troops fighting there. They will be of better use there. Now, we must find some other unclaimed territory in the Far East where we can place our Pacific Fleet. If you know of any, please let me know.

Once again, I thank you for your support.

Signed,
Thomas Rothsky
Elected Leader of the Free Land of Cotland
