I've never been much in to the troop stands, I just don't have the ability or the eye sight.
However some of the recent show us your stuff makes for such good eye candy I just had to have a go.



Just need to make a few bad guys for the Al-Kabab in Yer Bouti affiliate since they lack armour at the moment. Not sure of the final basing just yet but it will cover the 1 cent completely.

The Commonwealth has been trying to gather some information on this group, a rogue armed group. There are some indications it is a spin-off from the crowded Somali pirates. Does anyone know. Trying to determine geographic support area, structure, society. Also size, scale and scope of the organization, trying to conduct an effective SWOT evaluation (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats).

The Kabab has been a sauce of irritation for several years. Most of their attacks seem to take place late on Friday and Saturday nights.
From the kamanaskis to the far East of Tripoli County many loose affiliates spread over large areas of the globe right now have become a problem.
Boyus D'beya, Passa Boukit and El grogo to name just a few.

Their funding and cooperation is hard to judge, in some areas they may become semi autonomous states if no action is taken.
Al-Kabab seems to make large sums of money from their illicit lamb and goat meat trade.

A BS news crew making a documentary about Al-Kabab in Yer Bouti came under fire this week. I'm sure we will hear more from Al-Kabab in the coming weeks.

Our intelligence reports an unsubstantiated connection to TurkeyMoanistan. Apparently, a large burger chain there is buying the Al Kabab goat meet and passing it off as "American Angus Beef" in their "All Hail the Mighty Mighty Beef Burger" burger.

The owner of the franchises is a suspected Al-Kabab sympathizer, who hopes, we believe, to receive a monopoly in the fast food business once they come to power.

Investigations continue......

The Commonwealth will not remain idle and stand-by while this group of local hoodlums passes Al Kabab goat meat as American Angus Beef. The Commonwealth purchases tons of Angus Beef in the market place for government, military, commercial and consumer purchases. this is a fraud of high order.
.
Where is this taking place. The Royal Commonwealth Navy, with all the fine traditions, is creating a naval task force on a search and destroy mission. It will be lead by HRCoCS Canberra, HRCocS Iwo Jima, DDG Burke Class Tripoli, 3 LST - Helo capable and a HRCoCs San Diego. Full accompaniment of Harriers, F-35 C and F-35 Bs, NH-90, SH-60s, AH Tigers, HH-60L Blackhawks.
.
Also available to the task force will be a fleet of 8 C-130s, 3 AC-130s, 6 C-141, and 8 C-17. The Ministry of Defense is seriously supporting the Department of Commerce and Dept of Consumer Affairs in this en devour.

Al-Kabab is but the tip of the iceberg. Their questionable commercial dealings are the least of Yer Bouti's worries as they fear the group is gaining more popular support in the troubled tribal lands to the North.
Finally the Sheikh is taking this potential threat to his long time rule seriously.
Emergency talks with Balzac for more robust assistance are underway.
The Yer Bouti National Guard has proved somewhat incapable of securing control over even a modest part of the Country.

Across large areas of the Southern Med and in to the Middle East a powder keg is now simmering.
The turmoil in multiple current and former States has left many unanswered questions and the power vacuum is being exploited.

Yer Bouti's much larger Northern neighbour (10 x the size) is seen as the main problem. Funding and cheap arms flow South daily.
On the rare occasion the YBNG has taken the fight to Kabab they have rapidly pulled back over the Northern boarder with impunity.
They have at times used this to out flank the YBNG to great effect.

Yer Bouti needs to regain control over it's boarders again but the larger Countries in the region are the real centres of power that need stability.
If left unchecked this will only spread. 2017 could be the spring of fire.

Our task force for Operation Goat Meat came upon some troubles. Task Force Goat Meat was split up, several ships were not properly operational, issues with boilers and fuel lines, pumps, etc. So a smaller task force has sailed at 12 knots toward the east, will keep a close eye and electronic ear into Libya and the Gulf of Libya and the Line of Death. As I recall 2 Mig 23s splashed there decades ago.
.
We have a training segment while workups are taking place on the other ships. We will sortie a fire support monitor (FSM-1), hoping that the Libyans think it is an easy target and send a few boats out to 'capture' it. It is armed with 6 turrets with twin 5in guns, 8 Harpoon launch tubes, 2 CWIS, 2 SeaRAM, 3 40mm dual purpose guns, 2 20mm guns. It is heavily armored as well. This tidbit of info is highly secure, Ultra Secret.

These little f....errrrr, buggers are difficult to get a bead on. Attacked a survey team killing two and taking 6 hostage. Not confirmed that it was these bad boys. But some of the execution during the operation appear to have some training with leads us to Al Kabab or similar group that may be receiving support from them, Libya, etc.

------ BREAKING NEWS-------

The brazen efforts of the Kebab government in expanding their ever increasing footprint and strangle hold has now made its way to the reaches of South Korea. Initially small outposts were located out side of US Army garrisons, but recent developments have witnessed the Kebaby governments finger-licking and nose thumbing at the United States by driving tactical vehicles on those US Army garrisons.

An eyewitness was able to grab a photograph of the tactical truck on the un-named base. The witness also describes the indifference of many of the soldiers. However, the truck did attract a small contingent of curious seekers lined up to get a closer look. The witness also noted a odorous smell emanating from the truck when he snapped the picture.

The world waits to see how the United States responds to such serious provocation and to see if there are any Kebaby connections to the newly elected South Korean President Moon. President Moon reportedly is a fan of the Kebaby Pie which has been nick-named by the locals as a Moon Pie. Expect more to follow as new reports arrive.

Indeed the menace of the Kabab seems to be spreading into a global problem.
I urge all 6mm Nations to be on their guard and take action before this gets out of control.

Al-Kabab in Yer Bouti is but one small element of this. What was first taken as a small bunch of bandits has evolved into political/military grouping with growing popular support.
YB is an absolute monarchy and has not to date handled the problem well.
The sometimes heavy handed approach of the YB National Guard has not won any harts and minds.
Joint maritime operations between YB and Balzac have taken back control of the coastal traffic. However there has been a sharp increase in Al-Kabab activity inland in the North of the Country.
The Balzac training team in Yer Bouti is to double in size but it is unclear if the YBNG is up to the task of securing the Northern boarder.

Al Bouti TV was broadcasting a call for all National Guards and reserves to report to duty.
Gunfire could clearly be hear in the TV studio and the station has now gone off the air.
A BS (Balzac State) News team was near the front gates of the government compound but has since pulled back several block as there is a major ongoing fire fight in and around the area.





We are also hearing from a colleague at our downtown hotel of a possible incident in the old market area of the city.

BS News.
