The Fight Continues

Wes Mantooth – FNN

 

Sources close to the Federal commanders on the ground confirm significant losses in clash with Coalition forces in the vicinity of Perry, Georgia.

 

What was expected to be a routine extraction mission for several Sierra Dynamics personnel and classified research materials, took a turn for the worse after Federal troops encountered fierce and entrenched Coalition opposition.

 

FNN asked an opinion of a SPC Frank Williams who participated in the Federal operation near Perry, GA two weeks ago.

 

​"The Coalition have proven time and time again, that when you think you have them on their heels, they turn the tables on you. I think what our government and military planners might forget is the Coalition has a handful of smart military planners right out of Annapolis and West Point; it's not like this is some backwards-thinking banana republic army. Me and the other guys really think the Federal government should take the gloves off and let us take care of business."

 

While the Federal military command staff have had many successes in the Oklahoma consolidation campaign, the high casualty count is beginning to rear its ugly head with public opinion, policy makers and the anti-war movement. Between high body counts and the formation of the Pacific State Alliance, one wonders if we can no longer put the genie back into the bottle.

Two young faces, heavily concealed by pine growth and thick Georgia scrub, stared intently across the open ground between them and something they wouldn't fully understand for several more years, but would affect their lives immediately.

"Dad says the guys in green are the good guys, because the guys in brown are doing bad things," one whispered.

"My mom told my aunt that she hopes the tan guys win because the ones in green are terraces, or something," replied the other.

"Your mom is crazy, my dad is right. The green guys are good!"

"I don't even care, shut up! Look! There's smoke pouring out of that alley!"

-------------------------

Half a kilometer away, UFS and CoST forces clashed in a vicious and bloody confrontation. CoST forces in the area were a mix of new recruits, fully trained soldiers, and hardened veterans of this second civil war; while not all had been tested by battle yet, they had all felt this front would eventually come under attack. UFS sought to establish another foothold to allow them access to better seaports and a strategic attack angle against CoST fortifications in Texas and Mississippi. Securing this large complex on the western edge of Georgia would allow them to establish a large base camp and stage further operations against Coalition units in the area; however, when CoST intelligence units relayed intercepted messages about an impending attack, Coalition command mustered some of its finest combat-ready units to repel this latest incursion.

 

Intel was, as usual, spot-on: UFS had brought a large divison of troops, all of whom appeared eager to violently quell what they saw as an unwarranted rebellion. However, Coalition forces in the area fully grasped the exceptional importance of this conflict, and had already set their minds accordingly. Either this front would be held and kept from UFS control, or the Federalist bastards would have to spend atleast a week cleaning up blood, empty shells, and bodies. As forces amassed on the outskirts of the complex, squads of Coalition troops focused on the war cries of one of their grizzled leaders. Affectionately known as Yuk, his skills had proven highly effective in several recent conflicts, and his leadership commanded respect; as his rallying shouts echoed through the streets, the proverbial line was crossed, and the battle began. 

 

-------------------------

 

While the UFS-controlled media outlets will likely not report on the outcome, the fact that Coalition forces still hold the line is all that is needed to tell the story. Undoubtedly, UFS command will not take this lightly, and will regroup for another assault on the Coalition stronghold, and Coalition forces will again fight to the death to prevent their success. However, as the small white crosses begin to reach unprecedented numbers, and family farms destroyed by the war are converted to makeshift cemeteries, the outcry of the rest of the country grows louder, asking for an end to the violence. But who will lower their gun first?
