    Uprising in Iran results in Kurdish statehood. Ever since the uprising began in late 2019 following Iran’s bungled response to American military action in the Straits of Hormuz the Ayatollah has struggled to regain control of the Kurdish dominated borderlands with Iraq and Turkey. Multiple attempts to regain control via military force have failed as the Kurdish rebels are firmly entrenched in the westernmost provinces of Iran and hold significant stockpiles of advanced weapons allegedly provided by NATO in an effort to further weaken Iran. Regardless of foreign aid or not the Kurds seem like they are here to stay. A spokesperson from the “Provisional Republic of Kurdistan” has approached Iraqi and US governments with the proposal of uniting Iranian and Iraqi Kurdistan into a coherent Kurdish state. Given the Iraqi Kurds already extensive autonomy the US Government has urged their Iraqi counterparts to accept the proposal resulting in the establishment of the Republic of Kurdistan last week. Kurdish YPG forces in Iranian Kurdistan celebrate a victory over Iranian forces. Bringing together the war-torn territory of the new nation falls initially to president appointee Berewan Romet. In accordance with the Treaty of Mosul establishing Kurdistan he is to rule the country for a period of 2 years as a functional apparatus of state is set up. After this initial period open elections are to be held every 4 years. The status of the Kurdish minorities in Syria and Turkey are expected to become hotly debated topics given Syria's and Turkeys refusal to participate in the Kurdish nationbuilding. For now however Iranian and Iraqi Kurdistan are being united with the Turkish and Syrian Kurds being left out. Some talks about the possibility of a population transfer has been brought up but has yet to manifest in anything substantial. As was expected the Ayatollah in Tehran has condemned this step describing it as "Another American imperialist venture" and "An attempt to utterly dismantle the Islamic Republic of Iran". However with ever growing dissent at home and multiple military setbacks against the Kurds there seems to be very little Iran is capable of doing to prevent this redrawing of the borders in the Middle East.

    US Air Force Tests New Bunker-Buster Main News Channel Dateline: January 9th 2020 The Air Force confirmed that a test of its new bunker-buster munition, the Advanced Massive Ordnance Penetrator (AMOP), occurred at the Tonopah Test Range in Nevada on Thursday. This weapon, a smaller version of the original MOP, is capable of achieving much of the same results of its previous generation, at a third of the cost and half the size. The latter allows the B-2, the primary delivery vehicle of the US arsenal of heavy bunker-busters, to carry twice its payload without sacrificing penetration power. Pictured: AMOP test picture released by US Air Force Some have pointed to the increased tensions with North Korea since their recent nuclear test as the reason behind this test, though the Air Force denied these claims, stating the test was scheduled months in advance. The last North Korean nuclear test, coupled with a series of long-range missile tests, has become a significant point of contention between the hermit state and the rest of the international community. The test, believed to have been a thermonuclear detonation with a yield of approximately 350 kilotons, is the largest weapons test the North Koreans have ever launched and has renewed fears they will use their newfound effective deterrence to attempt to influence the region and possibly force the US to decrease its role on the Korean Peninsula.

    First time Ive recorded a Milsim op, and also the first time Ive done any video editing of any kind(had to edit around the times I actually talked to cut out undesired background and stuff but I think I cut out a little too much at some points from microphone audio so I'll keep that in mind if I do it again).

    Near-Miss Reported Over Taiwan Straits Grand Central Times Dateline: December 18th 2019 Sources in the Taiwanese Ministry of National Defense have confirmed a series of incidents that occurred over the Taiwan Strait on Tuesday. The first of the incidents began after a pair of H-6 bombers and four J-11 fighters began encroaching on Taiwanese airspace. Six Taiwanese F-16s scrambled to intercept them over the Taiwan Strait and reportedly locked fire control radars onto the two bombers, resulting in the Chinese fighter jets locking on to the Taiwanese aircraft. Both sides did eventually withdraw, but tensions were high. Pictured: Chinese H-6 bomber flying over the Taiwan Strait Another flight of Chinese aircraft consisting of twelve fighter jets launched soon afterwards and again received a response from the Taiwanese with eight F-16s intercepting them. As the Chinese fighters continued to approach Taiwanese airspace, the Taiwanese planes began positioning themselves in front of the encroaching aircraft. At one point, an F-16 reportedly got within ten feet of a Chinese fighter jet before the plane broke off its approach. Analysts of the region are raising concerns that China is exerting its military might in a much more aggressive manner now that the US has turned its attention to Europe.

    Glory to the Emperor! I'm looking to run a 40k themed fun op. You will be apart of the Cadian 836th tasked with recapturing a planet. The first step of business is clearing cultists away from our refineries so we can repair them and get them back in working order. As a warning, this will be a brutal and bloody battle. I expect everyone will likely die at least once. With this in mind, I have setup a mobile respawn system so that when you die you can rearm and hop right back into the fight. You will need these mods: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2432815357 These are the following roles & rules: All Cadian units aside from HQ and Grenadiers are to use a Lasgun or Shotgun only! Failure to comply may result in execution for denying orders. If the enemy is becoming too hard to handle, then additional equipment will be available.

In Universe Date will change on: Rapidly UPDATED: 10APR21 Current State of the World Maps of current International Statuses: https://my.visme.co/projects/x4yxe7my-world-relationships The Middle East Afghanistan in political turmoil with public trust having shifted to the Taliban after a Chemical Weapon detonated at the elections in 2018. Coalition forces deployed in the area fighting to keep democratically elected leaders safe and in power. U.S. Forces currently deployed to Afghanistan, alongside U.K. Canadian, and Italian forces. ISIS has gained significant strength in Afghanistan after its collapse in Syria and Iraq. Taliban is gaining public support as time passes. Northern Afghanistan has been abandoned by coalition forces and the Taliban and ISIS are both vying for control. Iran is stable but has little to no influence on the Straight of Hormuz remaining. Militarily strong but public opinion is low of the military's ability to defend the country given the ease the U.S. pushed in and destroyed a large quantity of defensive infrastructure. Iran was previously trying to destabilize the middle east to be able to take over as the primary power in the region but after the U.S. discovery of their involvement with the chemical weapon attacks and the mass of U.S. troops at the border, the Iranian leadership is re-evaluating their stance and strategy going forward. U.S. Special forces actively conducting operations in Iran to track down those involved with the attacks. Kurdish rebels have declared independence as Iranian Kurdistan and are waging a war against the Iranian government. Iraq is stable but with a severely weakened military. ISIS's in Iraq has been utterly destroyed. Four Divisions of U.S. troops deployed to their border with Iran as a safeguard against the discovery of Iranian involvement with ISIS and chemical weapons attacks. Oman is stable after the near-crisis with Yemen in 2017. Their economy is booming with the recent discovery of more oil drilling locations within their borders. Syria suffered a series of attacks from ISIS in mid 2018 but the Syrian Armed Forces successfully managed to dismantle the terrorists in the country and has since been recovering from the turmoil. Yemen is stable and has little continued conflict with Oman since 2017. The economy is improving and public order and support of the government is increasing. Asia and the Pacific Australia is stable and has been steadily increasing military spending since the RIMPAC incident with China. Australia has begun conducting regular training exercises with U.S. forces and is preparing for if and when China continues its aggression. China is stable and ramping up their aggression in the South China Sea. Chinese politicians aim to secure the majority of the key shipping lane by 2021. China has voluntarily withdrawn from the horizon islands but is currently building islands in the South China Sea, working their way towards the Philippines. Chinese special forces currently supplying the New People's Army in the Southern Philippines with monetary support, weapons, and supplies in attempt to get them to overthrow the Philippine government and establish a Communist Government Sympathetic to Chinese interests. China has fostered an uneasy alliance with Russia since 2017's RIMPAC incident to combat the U.S.'s power in the region. Philippines is unstable while actively fighting a terrorist organization working their way up the Southern Islands. Public order is decreasing the longer the conflict continues. Intelligence suggests a possible link showing that China is supplying the New People's Army but nothing is confirmed or concrete. Consider the U.S. a friend but political leaders want to show the nation's strength to their citizens and to China so they are currently unwilling to accept U.S. help in any of their conflicts. Russia is looming on instability with a series of political scandals implicating the Russian President in rigging local elections. Russian politicians actively making international threats to distract the population from the scandals but one more major internal crisis could topple public order. Militarily Russia has built up a strength equal to the former soviet union and is actively broadcasting it. Russia allied with China and deployed large portions of their fleet and naval infantry to Vladivostok in 2017 following the RIMPAC incident in order to combat the U.S.'s influence and power.

    Age: 21 First Name: Allen Last Name: Vest Steam Name: Diomedes Steam Profile Link: https://steamcommunity.com/id/wojakmaster/ ArmA III Player ID: 76561198042768735 Desired Duty Assignment: 0372 How Long have you been playing ArmA III: Since around 2015. Do you own Arma 3 Apex DLC? (Unit Requirement): Yes. Availability (Sunday/Saturday/Both): I work every other Saturday, but never Sundays. My usual Saturday work schedule is 12:30 to 5:30. How did you find out about our unit? Learned about it through Cole. If you were recruited by one of our members, who was it? Cole. Why do you want to join the 3rd Marine Raider Battalion? I've been itching for more realistic Arma 3 play since my last unit went defunct, but now that my schedule with work is less hectic I decided to scratch the itch. Do you understand the definition of realism gaming according to the 3d MRB and willing to abide by this game style? Absolutely. Shooty-runny-gunny games are a blast, but sometimes a little more logic is necessary to get an experience true to real warfare, and that's something I'm interested in. Do you understand this unit is EST(GMT -5) time zoned based. Operations take place on Saturday at 1500 EST and Sunday at 2000 EST. Yes. I already stated my Saturday scheduling roadblocks above.
