Today is the day that nobody wanted, except for maybe a select few in power around the world. This morning, around 1 am local time, Devonian troops crossed the boarder into Gorgas on three different fronts. The capital city of Triblisi is expected to be in Denovian hands by time you read this.
These events have started to make waves around the world. First at 1:15 local time the prime minister of Gorgas went on tv to beg for NATOs help and to officially state to the world that The Democratic Republic of Gorgas officially declared war on Denovia.
NATO for all its might is ill placed in the region with only a small group of pilots and ground crew stationed in the area and the surrounding Black Sea. Even the US carrier group was gutted by having its MEU and many of its support ships diverted to other missions in the Middle East.
Gorgas has tried several time to refill its depleted ranks after last year’s conflicts. Now even going as far as to offer french foreign legion style contracts and a large lot of land for anyone that signs up under the flag of Gorgas. Though with the conflict starting today it’s anyone’s guess if it will help or hurt recruitment.
Right now the NATO military council is set to start a early emergency meeting this morning to discuss what it will do about the conflict. Meanwhile the nation of Gorgas holds its breath as it watches its capital city burn from bombing and artillery strikes.
