These tanks were observed and one was photographed moving north in Guinea towards Mali.
What sort of tanks are these?


An intel staff member said these are M60A2s. Only one country operates that vehicle, that Gator State. They had said that they would never deploy elsewhere. Guess not any longer. What are your intentions GS?

We need to prepare.

Glad I don't have to rely on YOUR intelligence services if you yhink that is from GS. You must be preparing propaganda to justify attacking the GS. We are ready. C'mon. Our tank crews are anxious to fry some "Commies." (as in Commonwealth of Chrisdom troops)

Perhaps YOU would be foolish enough to deploy M60A2s to a country like Guinea, but the GS is not. Any idea what that climate would do to those electronics? Obviously not.

Come to think of it, CofC does a brisk business selling arms. Probably sold 'em to some country and forgot about it. Those tanks require sophisticated maintenance capabilities. You probably forgot to tell them wbat a pain those tanks can be and now they are gunnin' ferya.

At any rate, my BS alarms are ringing away like crazy.

Nice pic, though.

Other pictures. Our customs border check point was fired upon. This is actual photo of the attack by GS.





M551 are attacking the border of Mali by GS . No other country uses M60A2, certainly operating this combination of M60A2 and M551. Might see other M60 and/or M1A1 /A2.

Good GOD, Chris. ANYBODY who knows ANYthing about US tanks has been looking at those very pics for at LEAST FIFTY YEARS!

But if you are looking to justify invading GS, c'mon down and see for yourself that all our armored vehicles are right here at home, ready to poke holes (90, 105,120, 152mm - a great variety of ventilation) in any and all your great fleet. Good thing you have that big budget. You'll need to replace everything you send. It will all be cheesy or glowing. You WILL get the Servpro bill for the cleanup.

You are only proving what I have been saying all along. You create the pretext to invade, then in you go. C'mon, Chris, it's not even original. Hitler did it 80 years ago.

But if you insist, come right ahead. Everybody will know what's going on. So much for your "noble" CofC.

GS, we do not have any desire to invade you and your country. Not that we worry about your armaments, as impressive as they are. It appears that you were invading the CoC, having the M60A2 and M551s. Yes the Commonwealth does help countries with their defense needs. We consult on a regular basis and provide product from small arms, AFVs, to air craft and can broker ships as well to provide the 'blind' buyer.
.
Move Oil Wells have been floated in place of the coasts of Yer Bouti, Mauritania, West Sahara and Moroccodom. Total number of well online and producing is not 9. Two more are in place setting up the pipeline and the drill. Several more are in transit.
.
First payment to YB was $52,000,000 USD sent to the Bank of Commonwealth, then wired to Yer Bouti's account. The bank awaits instructions if escrow to be encumbered against import purchase. The Bank only charges 1% for escrow to encumbered. Or can transfer funds as the correspondent bank to Yer Bouti Bank.
.
The special Patrol and Control teams are doing well finding the enemy. Utilizing thermals to locate and identify people and equipment. Captured 36 Al Kabab members, killing at least 24. also captured small arms and AT guns and artillery pieces such as 76.2 Crashboom.

It only appears that the GS was invading CofC because that mashup of a propaganda office of yours tried to make it appear as though it was. One wonders how you ever manage to convince ANYone that you have good intentions. You should fire whoever set that effort up. Oh, wait. That was YOU! LMAO!

The transportation system for highway and rail are continuing in Mauritania and Mali. This network sets up a strategic capability and the opportunity for economic growth by increasing trade and capital investment.
. In Togo, a bomb went off destroying a bridge with 2 military vehicles on it. The vehicles plunged in the river. the driver sgt. of an MRAP died. 4 sustained serious injuries, they are recovering in the hospital. Post-bomb observation of the area did not provide any potential suspects or information. The investigation continues.
. In Nigeria, attacks by Al Kabab took place in two places. In the first, a bomber set off a bomb and he and two citizens died in a market area. 6 were wounded. In the second. two men with approaching a bus terminal. One was sweating profusely and was challenged. He was instructed to open his wrap. He hesitated. His partner walked away but was appended and questioned. The other Al Kabab pulled out a hand gun and shot at a group of 4 army in the passenger waiting area shooting one. He in turn was shot and killed by corporal with M1 Carbine, taking 4-5 rounds in the leg, torso.
. In Monaco, in the Defense Minister's conference room. Discussion is taking place how to reduce the types of tanks, AIFVs, and other military vehicles throughout the Commonwealth. The logistic support is excessive with too many different types of vehicles in the field. Will determine which vehicles types that will be discontinued or transferred to one or two specific National Guard and national army. Just last week, parts for M1A1 AIM for Merkava I and Merkava IV tanks. This in turn causes increased expense and delay of operations and plans.

YB welcomes this joint development. In time YB's own oil and gas platforms will be moved into place until then the revenue agreement will help YB's econony.
The initial funding will be used for the completion of a vehicle factory which will peacefully produce reverse engineered Reliant Robins and also T62's for agriculture duties.

The remaining funds will be split 50/50 on health and education.
An extra 10,000 young men turning 18 this year will benefit from a 24 Month fitness/health program.
Education spending will see the teacher training college at Wadi Buddi-holly rebuilt (it was bombed last year by the Moroccodom Air Force).
It will receive a brand new Chemistry campus and work has already started on the new nuclear sciences wing.
In ordered to preserve the natural beauty of the area, some parts of the construction will have to be built underground.

This is a small first step in what will be a brighter future, very bright.

The Wolf on the Wolf's Liar reporting, "Minister, Yer Bouti said Moroccodom bombed their the YB Wadi Buddi-holly training school last year. Tell us why did you do that?"
. Minister Yange replied, "The Morocco National Guard did not bomb that or any other facility. We have evidence that it was supporters of Shiek Yer Bouti the royal family was in favor of the school and the Sheik was against the school and the Royal Family. So the Shiek had it destroyed. We understand that the Shiek always needs a 'bad guy' that is a threat. YB has been using Morocco and Moroccodom for decades."
. The Wolf jumped in, "well, what is happening now, is there there any tension along the border? I remember that people left YB when the Sheik took control and the royal family left the country."
. Minister replied, "We did have several thousand people leave the country of YB, it was sad case of events. There were rumors that executions took place, there is video evidence. As tensions eased between YB and the Commonwealth a conference was held in the Azores that allowed families to return that wish to do so. There were hundreds of people if not thousands moving back. There were also some that choose to leave YB as well."
. " I can add on a positive note that as the petroleum production was set to be in place and then just recently producing oil diplomatic relationship has improved dramatically. There is set revenue sharing after depreciation, fixed and variable costs are deducted. We it is a joint venture with several different countries, most of which are in the Commonwealth. We hope we will have great national interaction with all the members of the Azores Field."
.
The Country of Tripoli run by the Knights Templar want to become members of the Commonwealth as does Malta and the Knights of Malta. This was planned some time ago, hence the conference in Malta.

The Simon Bolivar CC-SSGN made port in Valletta, Malta. Malta is a Republic in the Mediterranean Sea, that just became a member of the Commonwealth of Chrisdom. Malta's Premier called Sicily to encourage their membership in the Commonwealth. The reply was that they have been thinking about it for some time.
The CC-SSGN Marshall made port in NS Ivittuut, Greenland. Armed with torpedoes, and other missiles. It was a Franklin class boomer, but was converted to carry cruise missiles, ASROCs, and rumor SAMs. A Kilo, a 688 and U-214 submarine all recently made port at NS Ivittuut. A Delta is expected to make a port-o-call from Putinville to NS Ivittuut. The crew would like to enjoy some of the snow activities.

. The Bancroft made port-o-call in the Falkland Islands. The Stimson is expected very soon in the Falklands, to also enjoy the warm weather there. Our Franklin class subs also carry submersibles which is a new dimension for the Commonwealth. The Will Rodgers is to visit Madagascar to make a port-o-call. Also expected will be a few frigates and a supply vessel on this visit along with the Landing Ship Diego.

I see CofC is trying to sew up the Med, incorporating not only approaches to Gibralter, but key islands in the sea. It would seem to me that, sooner or later, the UK and US are going to take exception, particularly since conflicting obligations to NATO and CofC may interfere in the fulfillment of NATO treaty requirements.


CofC seems to be quite acquisitive of late. GS follows these developments with a great deal of interest in their potential impact on international relations.

Glad to know that you are keeping an eye on the Med and developments. The CoC presents the benefits, responsibilities. How we can work together within the CoC, how we can benefit our citizens, our economy, our healthcare, industry and trade.
.
As for the Med, anyone has free rights of travel, just like the South China Sea and the East China Sea. As for conflicting obligations and priorities of NATO and the Commonwealth is not an issue you need to concern yourself with. The US and UK along with France each have a large base on one of our (imaginary) islands west of Sardinia.
.
The Commonwealth has a base on Socotra in Sherubrub. Has deep port, airbase.
.
As for acquisitions, the people of various countries have joined the Commonwealth of Chrisdom, being led by their leaders. Sorry if you do not understand that. The Commonwealth does not seem to be for you. That is okay. Our Commonwealth is not for everyone.
.

The GS will concern itself as it sees fit and your attempt to discourage it only makes your activity more suspicious.

The GS avoids entangling alliances, particularly as it involves the surrender of sovereignty, which your members will eventually come to regret.

The GS understands well enough what CofC is doing.

Camastan wishes to proudly announce the receipt of a new hot air popcorn popper. Resplendent with sleek red lines, and dual-purpose measuring cup and butter melter, the popcorn maker will surely bring joy to the elite of Camastan.
