Operation Close-Out is to protect the interests of the Commonwealth and our allies in the area of the Red Sea and the Med.
It is not a blockade of Canada. If Canadian forces do get involved in an encounter with the Evil Empire since some tension is rising Canada might attack the wrong site in the wrong country, wrong city. The environmental disaster when New Canadian military leaves/retreats is horrendous. Oil spills, pollution, water purity is gone.
The Med has merchant ships sailing from end to end, oil tankers transiting. Would hate for Canada to sink 4-5-6 tankers in the Med. Hit a few freighters and four cruise ships loaded with tourists. They would probably sink a few cruise ships.

Thatís a bit over exaggerating, but that will not happen in this operation.

Did New Canada have itís military perform and function off Vancouver Island as it was supposed to? Your commitment was to much more assertive, even aggressive when I made my demonstration west of the island. It was you proposal so you could and would take the remaining portion of Vancouver Island. The reason to have a battleship with escorts and you aircraft.
Perhaps you forget those elements.... of course I was not to participate in any occupation, just demonstrate with my Navy. It was your gig, your operation.
. So, if we do not trust you you will understand. Having a force halfway around the world for a hypothetical counter to Evil Empire build up is alarming. Through the Borphorous Straights has been slightly higher Evil military traffic. So your concern is what? Expansion? As Canada did not care for CoC at bases in WA on the border with Canada, the CoC has high concern.

What we did off Vancouver island was purely a defensive measure against any move made by the KDF we where protecting our nation and interests from outside threats. We have not planned nor interested in launching any invasion of the island nation unless it was deemed necessary, we donít take decisions lightly but cautiously.

Our mission in Saudi Arabia, is mainly to help out the ROD in halting the Eurasian empires movements in the Region.

NC: So you will understand that I will not trust you! You do not fulfill your intent, or even attempted to do so even with your suggestion. That may have been your plan from the start. As for 'not making decision lightly, but cautiously' is not accurate nor true. You make rash decisions impetuously throwing caution to the wind.
.
Having another go.... Trying to "win one for the Gipper". Lose more good people to combat. Does it fit with the National Defense Strategy?
. What is the intent of the Evil Empire? What is their goal, what are they trying to achieve? Why (besides its a game)? If the E.E. is looking to expand their influence, perhaps the EE is a threat to the CoC. If so, the Black Sea naval forces of the CoC member states can interdict there while Armeniadom and Chickoviadom ensue closure to the Borphorous Straights that runs through Turkey, Armeniadom and Chickoviadom. By treaty the Borphorous Straits is navigational waters. Egypt may close their end of the Red Sea.
. Think of these things sense you do not make decisions lightly, but cautiously.
.
Tunisadom
Armored forces for the CoC have arrived, off loaded from ships. The armored units (M1A1 AIM) including mechanized infantry (M113-25 [EIFV]), logistics (trucks and more trucks and then some), air defense, artillery, CAV & Recon, anti-tank, military police, e-units, C4SRI elements, etc. are in their assembly areas checking on the systems making any maintenance needs. Command is the North Africa Command and the 4th Corp with leadership from Navy & Air Force which will be in Tunisadom.
. Increased surveillance of Algeria border with Tusnisadom and Moroccodom has occurred and will continue to do so.
. The state of readiness in Mediterranean Region is taking place. The Red Sea District near Saudi Arabia and the New Canadian military are on heightened alert status. Monitoring, tracking, data collection of ships & air craft is taking place.
. Discussions with the Saudi government are taking place after meeting with the King and Royal Prince. Saudi Arabia does not wish to be a 'DOM'!!! (at this time, hehe). They did express their concerns and wishes.
. Country of Tripoli is still committed to the defense of Israel. The Pope has great influence over the Knights Templar.

As far as what the ROD told us is that the Eurasian empire is planning to take the Oil field's in the region, and they brought a rather sizeable force in the area. So our plan was to deploy troops along side the ROD forces already present in Saudi Arabia and to have both forces setup a vast network of static defences in a effort to halt the Eurasian empires advance into the country. We believe that the Suez Ca-nal is more important target for the EE, then the Borphorous Straits thus the CofC has nothing to worry about.

Just to clarify, we don't do static defense. But yes, we do think the Eurasian Empire has its eyes on oil and the Suez. Things are getting pretty spicy in the region!

Considering the size of the eurasian empires forces in the region. Static defence maybe the best option to stop them in their tracks.

So they can surround you and pound you with artillery from a safe distance? The ROD will be maneuvering, but you are welcome to provide a stationary target.

We Donít know What the Eurasians battle plan is, but given their performance with the PAC earlier, they would most likely charge right into our lines, but itís best to be prepared for anything. Fortunately we got our ground attack aircraft on stand by to carpet bomb the enemy formation when they get close. hopefully if you ROD guys have enough manpower to slow them down then we might have a chance to crush them.

I already have the RCN warships patrolling the Suez Ca-nal to prevent any... unwanted surprises from the Eurasian fleet.

Eastern Med & Suez Waterway
Do the ships in the NC task force enter the Med and/or the Red Sea? Or do they stay in the Suez Waterway? Why are the NC Navy patrolling the Suez? Why not in the Med?
.
The Evil empire does not know the plans of New Canada, well they might, if NC is predictable.
.
Need an update of military information of the Evil Empire, perhaps from Jane's.

The RCN warships had entered in from the Med and now exited into the Red Sea to avoid some unknown danger that the ROD spoke of. The original plan for the warships was to patrol the Suez to prevent any Eurasian empire ships from entering into the area and cause trouble for resupplying the ROD and NC forces in Saudi Arabia. Now because of this danger all resupply efforts will be coming in from the Pacific from CFB Esquimult

The Can-al is a more important waterway as its vital for our ships to get in from the Pacific, the Med is more for your ships to patrol, I'm sorry but you on your own there.

All dominions of the Commonwealth of Chrisdom are notified of the military encounter in Egypt by the Evil Empire (EE), A/K/A Eurasia Empire. Defensive measures are being employed throughout the Commonwealth.

Discussion back at HQ, dang the Evil Empire. How in the world did they all the military equipment stuff there, so quickly. several division. Landed at Country of Tripoli.
Acquisition radars were detected, there were not any targeting radars locked on any of the CoC aircraft.
.

Karma-Naskis was never in any doubt of the true intentions of the CofC (the real Evil Empire). To expand the "Doms" and subjugate more of the free World.
Despite the high cost to its economy and access to some European markets, K-Country took a firm stance to preserve its independence and security. It was a price well worth paying.

The level of collusion and support from NC was not at first know but it is now clear that the intent is very much the same.
Mech said. "We have not planned in launching any invasion of the island nation unless it was deemed necessary,"
What would be deemed the necessary trigger for such an action is now the risk that Karma-Naskis must consider.
Should Brig Gen Fitzgeralds shoes being too tight one morning be all that is required to sway the strategic goals of NC is not a risk that Karma-Naskis can live with.

The actions of both the CofC and NC have damaged the regional status quo.
Countermeasures must be taken.

Karmanaskis
What counter measures do you plan to conduct, Mike - He Can Do It.... whatever it is?
Patrol some of your Horton Restaurants for food quality since NC will not send in Food & Restaurant Inspectors? NC was thinking about the strength or lack of it as he fretted whether to land forces. He thought better of it I guess.

Interesting....
It was the suggestion of NC that the CoC patrol, then conduct live fire trading to the west of Vancouver Island. He suggested bring in some troop ships. They had been heading southwest but did turn around for the training exercise. He was prepare to take action to 1. If Karmanaskis came out, indicating it would be the last time.K-country would do that. I thought he was going to protect our training fleet. Later I found out his fleet battleship, men would be ready to move on Vancouver Island. So, I guess that would have been Karmanaskis last time with NC taking over the rest of the island.
2. He is always ready to fight.... always going to fight. Whether ready or not is a different issue.
3. The CoC had use and access to two bases in the area. The US politely asked us to sail away. Which we did.
4. Because there are members of the Commonwealth is because those countries wanted to become members (except for three). The have active representation in Parliament in Upper Chamber and Lower House.
5. The CoC helped restore NC. Fighting Al-Kabab, establish order. There were 3 Provinces that were members of the CoC. By small margin and heavy lobbying and effort by NC those people become part of the NC. Lack of appreciation on your part does not change the facts.
.
Panama
The Range Class 279 is finishing up with ceremonies today. One Range candidate will receive his promotion and authorized Ranger gear in the hospital recovering from broken leg and injured hip and ankle. He will be laid up for 3 -4 more days. These new rangers will start flying out tomorrow. The 20 new Rangers from ROD are flying to an undisclosed location.
.
Should the Ranger School expect any more candidates in the next class?
.
Mediterranean Sea
Patrols have picked up a lot of activity by the EE, not has been directed to the CoC or any member of the Commonwealth. EE has been advised that the CoC and it members would not take kindly to any attack on any member whether intention or by accident, including any ship, plane, group, unit, country, building or person. This includes Syria where CoC soldiers are moving back to the naval transports for some, bases near the port. Tightening the lines. Aleppo is still heavily controlled by Al-Kabab. Aleppo Industrial Area is producing at the highest level of output for commercial, industrial, and consumer uses in over a decade. The Aleppo Industrial Zone has its own police and Security force. Rule of Law is helping to reestablish a civilized society.
