Arab Winter: is a regional map game focusing on the Middle East, and the protests and conflict of the region after the earlier Arab Spring. Revolutionary waves of demonstrations and protests are on the way, and in many nations age old authoritarian governments are losing control over their people. Terrorist groups and political organizations alike fight for power in a new landscape. Negotiate with world powers and regional governments for control and recognition, and if necessary prepare to take what is yours in the Arab Winter. Whether you fight for religion, politics, freedom, or power, one thing is clear. The region is changing quickly, and it is in your hands, to decide the fate of the Middle East.

The Game

1.0 2011

A Tunisian street vendor named Mohamed Bouazizi dies after setting himself on fire a month earlier. His death sparks anti-government protests in Tunisia. After two days many of the nation’s workers are on strike, including 95% of the countries lawyers. Police begin using riot gear to disperse the crowds, and buildings are ransacked.

The South Sudan referendum on independence begins, and immediately the heavy turnout appears to vote heavily in favor of secession.

Islamic State [Iraq]: With the death of Abu Omar al Baghdadi, it was agreed upon by the Shura to elect Abu Bakr al Baghdadi as the new Amir. The ISI initiates a process of recruiting thousands of soon-to-be suicide bombers from the war zones, spreading teachings of Jihad and such. Slow and gradually, thousands are recruited into the group, mostly Sunni who are taught about the traitorous behaviour of the Shia. Meanwhile, weapons are smuggled from Arabia and Chechnya to the ISI; in order to wage war against the Great Satan, America and the Kafirs. Many areas in the countryside are aggressively occupied, as they provide a safe haven to the insurgents and a major plan is plotted to bomb the US embassy in Baghdad

  • The ISI declares Jihad all over Iraq and calls upon Al Qaeda to aid the ISI in establishing a Muslim state in Iraq

Iraq: The nation of Iraq begins building up and training its military, to crack down on insurgents within our borders. We continue working closely with the United States military, to ensure their removal later this year, and become sufficient in terms of defense and security. Currently domestic forces are made responsible for complete security of all provinces.

Iraqi Ba'athists: The remnants of the Iraqi Ba'athist Party continues to fight against the "Imperialist American oppressors and their complacent puppet government," although little direct action is taken at the moment. Skirmishes and a few car bombs are used in the Sunni Triangle to keep the opposition on their toes. The leadership of the Ba'athist forces makes occasional outreaches towards Sunni Arabs and tribes, appealing to their mutual religion and history to support the cause. 

Taliban: Recognizing the lingering threat of the American military in Iraq, Mullah Omar orders an increased production of IED's and roadside bombs to deter Afghani forces in Taliban controlled territory as well as continue to wear down American resolve in the region (the result being several IED related deaths for the American forces early in January). The Taliban in Pakistan, meanwhile, is ordered to continue their stockpiling of rockets and other large armaments for the defence of their mountain and valley hideouts whilst reaching out for support from local Pashtun villagers.

United Arab Emirates: The United Arab Emirates increases trade with neighboring and foreign nations, exporting large amounts of petroleum based products. To this end a number of oil refineries are expanded, and infrastructure is created or built up to streamline this process. To avoid heavily relying on one source of income, the government also invests in projects to diversify the economy. Mining sees an increase, with diamond, gold, and jewelry parts being produced in large quantities. This is followed by aluminum, jet engine parts and other electronics. To protect against famine and drought, agriculture is expanded, and water is stockpiled. The government also begins planning the creation of water desalination plants in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Fresh water will be stockpiled, for use in emergency, and for farming. We plan to work closely with the Co-operation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf for further co-operation among nations of the Arabian Peninsula. The military of the United Arab Emirates is greatly expanded, seeing the need to protect our nation from foreign threats.

PKK: The longtime leader of the PKK, Abdullah Ocalan, dies in Turkish custody. The acting leader, Murat Kariyalan, also dies after begin shot in suspicious circumstances. Via a letter smuggled out by Ocalan, the PKK leadership passes to Abdul Talabi, who favours immediate independence from Turkey and re-engagement in the war, which is winding down. The PKK begins aggressively recruiting in the areas it controls, as well as Turkish-held areas, secretly, increasing numbers to around 24,000. It also seeks to import arms, and reaches out to enemies of Turkey internationally. The PKK gradually and secretly expands control in Eastern Turkey, infiltrating fighters into Turkish-controlled areas, while actual violent action is minimized in preparation for planned future offensives.

  • The PKK request to purchase arms (especially anti-aircraft and artillery) secretly from international enemies of Turkey, in order to weaken their mutual opponent, specifically asking Russia, Greece, Cyprus and Iran. Mod Response for Russia, Cyprus, and Greece.
  • Mod Response: Greece agrees to secretly smuggle a small amount of weapons into the PKK's possession. Russia also agrees, although for now keeps its involvement to a minimum. Cyprus offers a small amount of financial aid for the time being.

Pakistan: With the increasingly concerning threat of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, we begin the long process of using military force to fight the Taliban insurgents, and their fellow Al-Qaeda troublemakers. We decide to begin economic modernization and the process of modernizing our military, but at the present require foreign aid to do so. We begin a process of nuclear buildup in an attempt to deter our southern neighbors: India. We begin the process putting an end to corruption within Pakistan, but during the process, we find files by accident that track Osama bin Laden to Abottabad, although we decide to maintain this secret from the public. We decide to keep this secret from the American Imperialists, and decide to dispose of the evidence in complete secrecy, in order to ensure the credibility of our government.

Israel: Due to widespread criticism and terrorism, we announce a plan to implement better living conditions for Palestinians in Israel-held West Bank. We continue working closely with the US in military matters. We continue to assert our claims over the Golan Heights.

Al-Qaeda: The weeks are spent recruiting and getting people more interested in joining Al-Qaeda. New Anti-American and Jewish propaganda is made widely available to new recruits, trying to influence the amount of potential who could join Al-Qaeda in the already anti-Semitic and anti-American societies. Weapons, already being manufactured at our hideouts (mainly because of secret funding) are tested and supplied to loyal Jihadists for use against opposition. The leader of the faction, Osama bin Laden, is currently hiding out somewhere American authorities cannot find him, giving secret orders from said spot to the rest of the group. Seeing revolutionaries rise in Tunisia, a specialty of selected Jihads are sent to monitor the situation, maybe potentially interfering if need be.

Egypt: Abdel Fatta El-Sisi is elected president of the nation. We build up the military by recruiting troops to train. We farm the land by the Nile River to grow crops to feed our people. We ask Saudi Arabia and Libya for an alliance. Our factories build tanks and planes for the military. We also ask Israel for an alliance.

Iran: We keep an eye on the Kurds in the west of our nation, and build up our military to prepare for skirmishes with them. We begin to raise relations with India and European countries, so as to try to become a developed nation in their eyes. We build more tanks, and ask Turkey for an alliance. We also attempt to raise living conditions and lighten laws on Islam in the nation.

Tunisia: President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali declares a state of emergency and orders the military and police to begin a crackdown on the protesters. In an attempt to discredit the protests, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali declares that the protests are Al-Qaeda inspired and urges the population to resist the terrorists.

Azerbaijan: Tensions grow with Armenia.

Iraqi Kurdistan: Demands for independence grow, with many feeling they are not represented by the government. Weapons are bought on the black market.

Turkey: Turkey begins to improve its economy and build up its military. While ISI declares Jihad all over Iraq, Turkey supports ISI by sending weapons and money.

Syria: Fearing the martyrdom of the death of the street vendor, police forces in major cities are put on an alert. The military's growth continues, researching new weapons to become more advanced in the region. A suicide bomber in western Syria kills four. Seeing the PKK's movements in Turkey, it worries about Kurds inside its borders, and deploys its military into Syrian Kurdistan. We wish to establish closer ties to Iran.

Sudan: Despite the peace agreement between the government and Sudan and various rebel movements in the south, the government repeals the referendum, refusing to publish the results, despite overwhelming support of secession. In an unexpected surprise attack, the Sudanese Armed Forces seizes several large cities in South Sudan. Conflict erupts once more with the Sudan People's Liberation Army, but initially we manage to hold out ground.

1.5 2011

In Algeria, a wave of self immolation attempts begin across the country, in the same fashion as Tunisian street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi. Protests begin in major cities, and many begin a march to the nation’s capital.

Upset with the mishandling of housing units set to be built and growing evidence of corruption in Gaddafi's regime, Protesters clash with police in Tripoli, Benghazi, and Dema. The protesters take inspiration from riots in Egypt, Tunisia, and Algeria, with demands ranging from the completion of the housing project to the resignation of Gaddafi himself

The Tunisian government officially falls after a month of increasingly violent protests; President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali flees to Saudi Arabia after twenty-three years in power.

Suicide bombers from the Riyad-us Saliheen Brigade of Martyrs and the Caucasus Emirate attack Domodedovo International Airport in Russia, killing at least thirty-seven people, and injuring about 180.

In what becomes known as the “Day of Revolt” in Egypt, protesters take the streets in Egypt, concentrated in the cities of Cairo, Alexandria, Suez, and Ismailia, protesting the abuses by the police. The protesters’ debates expand to include the resignation of the Minister of the Interior, the restoration of a fair minimum wage, the end of Egyptian emergency law, and term limits for the president. In Cairo the protest is larger than expected, and protesters break through security lines into the Tahrir Square, where they clash with police.

Inspired by the recent events in Tunisia, tens-of-thousands of Yemeni protesters march out onto the streets of Aden and Sana’a to demonstrate against planned proposals by their government to amend the constitution, as well as the growing unemployment rate and sluggish economy.

Islamic State [Iraq]: With the death of Abu Omar al Baghdadi, it was agreed upon by the Shura to elect Abu Bakr al Baghdadi as the new Amir. The ISI initiates a process of recruiting thousands of soon-to-be suicide bombers from the war zones, spreading teachings of Jihad and such. Slow and gradually, thousands are recruited into the group, mostly Sunni who are taught about the traitorous behaviour of the Shia. Meanwhile, weapons are smuggled from Arabia and Chechnya to the ISI; in order to wage war against the Great Satan, America and the Kafirs. Many areas in the countryside are aggressively occupied, as they provide a safe haven to the insurgents and a major plan is plotted to bomb the US embassy in Baghdad. On 26th January, a major attack is launched upon the US Embassy which succeeds or fails. [Mod Response]

  • The ISI declares Jihad all over Iraq and calls upon Al Qaeda to aid the ISI in establishing a Muslim state in Iraq. Meanwhile, the ISI received arms from Turkey for an unknown reason.
  • Mod Response: Although the attack fails to take the US embassy, several security personnel and civilians in the area are killed, bringing greater attention to ISI and the Middle East.

Egypt: We continue to build up our military by recruiting troops to train. We continue to farm the land by the Nile river to feed our people. Our factories continue to build tanks, weapons, battleships, and planes for the military. The military makes a border control team and sends them out to protect our borders. The president has a meeting with his cabinet and talks about giving more civil rights to the people. About 50 people die and about 50 people get hurt in the riots in Tahrir square. The president makes the minimum wage 9 dollars US and 64.35 Egyptian pounds. We limit the force a police officer can use on a person. An officer can only frisk and briskly search a person's body. 

Pakistan: We continue to combat the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, while simultaneously continuing modernization of our economy and military. We continue nuclear buildup in secrecy in order to combat the possible threat from India. We begin to make major healthcare reform across the nation in an attempt to improve the quality of life of our citizens, while we begin to modernize the nation's infrastructure. We continue to put an end to corruption in the nation, while the documents found over three weeks ago, are expected to be burned in secrecy. Meanwhile, we continue military deployment in Northern Pakistan, while we decide to ask for Chinese aid in our nation's economics. We decide to call for a peace summit with Iran starting in early March. 

Al-Qaeda: The weeks are spent recruiting and getting people more interested in joining Al-Qaeda. New Anti-American and Jewish propaganda is made widely available to new recruits, trying to influence the amount of potential who could join Al-Qaeda in the already anti-Semitic and anti-American society. Weapons, already being manufactured at our hideouts (mainly because of secret funding) are tested and supplied to loyal Jihadists for use against opposition. The leader of the faction, Osama bin Laden, is currently hiding out somewhere American authorities cannot find him, giving secret orders from said spot to the rest of the group. Seeing revolutionaries rise in Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, and Egypt. and a specialty of selected Jihads are sent to monitor the situation. In Libya, seeing unrest and potential to spread the true way of Islam there, opens up a branch of Al-Qaeda there. Their first act as a branch of "the base" was to set off a few bombs under trees and government buildings, is successful in the distorted area, allowing Al-Qaeda members out of the Tripoli to raid weapon shacks to supply Al-Qaeda. This attempt is [Successful or Unsuccessful MOD RESPONSE], and is interesting how it turned out got the organization.

  • Mod Response: (Not entirely sure what you're even asking here, but) The attack is successful.

Taliban: Recognizing growing military movement in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas, lieutenants of the Tehrik-i-Taliban are ordered to increase secret weapons storage around the vast valleys and mountain hideouts, further being ordered to lower rates of recruitment in the region for fear of internal agents. Meanwhile in Afghanistan, Mullah Omar denounces the harsh reaction of the African-Arabic countries on protesters, proclaiming that the followers of Muhammad need to rise up and overthrow their 'secularist dictators', all whilst announcing his support for the Caucasus Emirate in the wake of the recent airport bombing in Russia. Throughout Pashtun areas of Afghanistan, recruitment remains at a steady pace as importation of weapons increases through secret supply lines that run into the Central Asian nations. In late January, a roadside IED planted by Taliban fighters detonates outside Peshawar, Pakistan, killing the governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Owais Ahmed Ghani.

PKK: Early in September, PKK troops seize a Turkish weapons convoy heading south to Iraq, and realize to their shock that the weapons are meant for ISI. Further investigation produces the realization that Turkey is supplying large amounts of weapons and money. The PKK leadership decides to turn this into a major propaganda coup. Meanwhile, PKK fighters surround and attack several weapons depots in eastern Turkey, seeking further confirmation of this and to seize weapons and inflict damage on Turkey. [Successful or Unsuccessful MOD RESPONSE]. PKK Diplomacy: The PKK inform the United States and its allies that Turkey is supplying ISI, and calls on them to sanction and condemn it in response. Mod Response

  • Mod Response: The majority of attacks against Turkey are successful.

Turkey: Turkey continues to improve its economy and build up its military. While ISI declares Jihad all over Iraq, Turkey supports ISI by sending weapons and money. The Turkish population continues to grow, now at +1.4% growth rate and numbering 74,724,269 people. Turkey builds up impressive armed forces, with many of new factories are built and 500 tanks are built each month. A few farms are built, cities are upgraded and roads are improved.

Permission Granted from Toby to cross that out. ~Edge

Saudi Arabia: Things continue as normal in Saudi Arabia. Oil production remains high, making us one of the top producers in the world. We also continue our Military development. Tensions within the government run high, with some of the Elite believing that Saudi Arabia should back ISIS. Despite these tensions, Saudi Arabia remains Anti-ISI. Economy is also improved as well.

Syria: Work on disarming local Kurdish militias begins. Protesters arise, majority in the Sunni population but the police are prepared and nothing gets out of hand yet. The military continues to grow and more of the budget is spent towards just that. An Art shot is planned in Damascus in March, endorsed by Assad himself. Syria wishes to continue growing close ties with Iran

Ba'athist Forces: With the growing tensions in the Middle East rising after the events in Tunisia, the Ba'athist forces still in Iraq plan to make a comeback following the withdrawal of American forces. Ba'athist forces continue to try to draw support from Sunni Arabs and tribes in Iraq, paying special attention to the Sunni Triangle as a base for their mission and recruitment. While the leadership of the Ba'ath party congratulates ISI on their daring mission against the Americans, the Ba'athists don't follow in their footsteps yet, instead focusing on waiting out the storm and readying their forces. 

Tunisia: in response to Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fleeing, President of the Chamber of Deputies Fouad Mebazaa immediately takes the position of Acting President and appoints Kamel Morjane as Acting Prime Minister. In an attempt to appease the protesters, Kamel Morjane forms a coalition government between the Democratic Constitutional Rally, the Democratic Forum for Labour and Liberties and the Ettajdid Movement.

  • Democratic Constitutional Rally: The Democratic Constitutional Rally declares that Zine El Abidine Ben Ali is a traitor for fleeing the nation and removes him from all positions in the party.
  • Tunisian Military: The Tunisian Military declares full support for the protesters.

Iraq: The nation of Iraq begins building up and training its military, to crackdown on insurgents within our borders. We continue working closely with the United States military, to ensure their removal later this year, and become sufficient in terms of defense and security. Currently domestic forces are made responsible for complete security of all provinces.

2.0 2011

The sudden announcement from Sudan in regards to their revocation of the South Sudan Independence Referendum, causes immediate backlash from the international community. Violence flairs up again in the region, despite the initial success of the Sudanese government.

Large protests in Egypt continue, including a congregation of at least two million people in Tahrir Square, in one of the biggest protests since the protests against Mubarak’s reign. President of the United States Barack Obama urges Mubarak not to run for the presidency of Egypt again, and calls for the transition to democracy to begin.

First, Mubarak is not my leader. Second thing, I made Abdel Fatta El-Sisi my president in the first turn of the game. - Scar

The United States condemns Turkey’s alleged support of terrorist organizations in the Middle East, and issues a statement that an official sanction against the Turkish government may follow if funding does not cease.

A Buddhist family of four is shot and killed by Muslim separatists in Thailand, in one of the largest attacks in the escalation of violence in southern Thailand.

Al-Qaeda in Yemen grows in support after the recent unrest against the Yemeni Government. Protesters continue to clash with police, and a car bomb goes off in the streets of Aden, killing two but capturing the seriousness of this issue in the eyes of the world press.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev issues an official statement on the bombing of the Domodedovo International Airport leading to the possibility of further operations in Chechnya.

Al-Qaeda: The weeks are spent recruiting and getting people more interested in joining Al-Qaeda. New Anti-American and Jewish propaganda is made widely available to new recruits, trying to influence the amount of potential who could join Al-Qaeda in the already anti-Semitic and anti-American society. Weapons, already being manufactured at our hideouts (mainly because of secret funding) are tested and supplied to loyal Jihadists for use against opposition. The leader of the faction, Osama bin Laden, is currently hiding out somewhere American authorities cannot find him, giving secret orders from said spot to the rest of the group. Seeing revolutionaries rise in Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, and Egypt. and a specialty of selected Jihads are sent to monitor the situation. Our support is embraced in Yemen, as "the base" offers weapons to the Islamic State of Iraq.

Islamic State [Iraq]: With the death of Abu Omar al Baghdadi, it was agreed upon by the Shura to elect Abu Bakr al Baghdadi as the new Amir. The ISI initiates a process of recruiting thousands of soon-to-be suicide bombers from the war zones, spreading teachings of Jihad and such. Slow and gradually, thousands are recruited into the group, mostly Sunni who are taught about the traitorous behaviour of the Shia. Meanwhile, weapons are smuggled from Arabia and Chechnya to the ISI; in order to wage war against the Great Satan, America and the Kafirs. Many areas in the countryside are aggressively occupied, as they provide a safe haven to the insurgents and a major plan is plotted to bomb the US embassy in Baghdad. On 26th January, a major attack was launched upon the US embassy which while failed to occupy the embassy, managed to kill many Kafirs. The ISI spokesman Abu Alam al Adnani claimed responsibility and also declared that further attacks will take place. 

Pakistan: We continue to combat the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, while simultaneously continuing modernization of our economy and military. We continue nuclear build-up in secrecy in order to combat the possible threat from India. We continue to make major healthcare reform across the nation in an attempt to improve the quality of life of our citizens, while we continue to modernize the nation's infrastructure. We continue to put an end to corruption, as we burn all the documents in complete secrecy, as now any evidence of Osama bin Laden being traced back to Pakistan is now almost non-existent. Military deployment in Northern Pakistan continue, while the death of governor Owais Ahmed Ghani, is met with the retaliation by a major assault on one of their bases in Pakistan. Following this incident, we decide to tighten security in order to ensure any more attacks such as these are prevent. In other news, we ask for China to provide us with aid [MOD RESPONSE] and again ask for a summit to improve diplomatic relations with Iran starting early March [MOD or Player Response]

  • Iran: We accept.

Taliban: Having been driven back from two of our largest bases on the Bara River, Mullah Omar advises the leaders of the Tehrik-i-Taliban to withdraw completely from compounds in open ground into the secret mountain and valley bases closer to the Afghan border, urging them to defend their positions using stockpiled assault rifles, rockets and bombs. The production and distribution of roadside IED's in Pakistan are curtailed dramatically to ration the explosive materials used in their production. In Afghanistan, however, explosives production not only remains steady, but is rising after a small Afghan military unit clashed with Taliban fighters on the outskirts of Kabul. Weapons smuggling from Central Asia is increased as Mullah Omar orders his 'brothers' to begin an extensive training program for a future military campaign. Having been given watching the events unraveling in Yemen closely, fourteen of our soldiers are sent on a secret mission to their capital Sana'a. In mid-February, Mawlawi Jalaluddin Haqqani traveled to the compound of the Taliban's 'fellow brother', Osama bin Laden, to discuss the advancement of relations between Al-Qaeda and our organisation in Pakistan (particularly in regards to the sharing of weapons stockpiles). [Player Response].

Iran: We build up our military more, and attempt to pass some laws to lighten the heavy religion rules. We become more friendly with the US.

Iraqi Kurdistan: We declare independence from Iraq, and begin bombing Baghdad. Many young Kurds join up to fight for their freedom, and we request support from the U.S. (Mod Response) We continue to buy weapons, and begin training our troops in the use of RPGs.

Turkey: Turkey continues to improve its economy and build up its military. The Turkish population continues to grow, now at +1.4% growth rate and numbering 74,724,269 people. Turkey builds up impressive armed forces, with many of new factories are built and 500 tanks are built each month. A few farms are built, cities are upgraded and roads are improved. Turkey begins to improve relations with Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Iraqi Ba'athists: The forces still loyal to the old regime prepare their forces for the withdrawal of American troops later this year, but the declaration of independence of Kurdistan from Iraq is troubling news and may force their hand. The Iraqi Ba'athist leadership officially condemns the declaration of independence, but in practice ignores it, as their focus is more in the Sunni Triangle and Baghdad rather than the Kurdish provinces. 

Egypt: We continue to build up our military by recruiting troops to train. We continue to farm the land by the Nile river to feed our people. Our factories continue to build tanks, weapons, battleships, and planes for the military. The military makes a border control team and sends them out to protect our borders. Abdel Fatta El-Sisi tries to quiet the riots by sending out the military in the public square. With the military getting involved about 1000 people get killed and about 500 people get injured. About 100 troopers get killed and about 100 troops get injured. Two buildings explode in this riot, a mosque and an elderly housing center. With all of these bad things happening the president goes on a campaign around the nation and talks about solving the problems and making the citizens happy to live in Egypt. Abdel Fatta El-Sisi is not sure if he is going to run for a second term in 2012.  

Afghanistan: The president of Afghanistan states that it is his goal to eradicate the Taliban and other jihadist groups operating in the territory of Afghanistan. A massive reform is implemented in the Afghan Armed Forces. A draft is implemented, to bolster the current 200,000 active duty troops (men aged 18 - 26). It is expected that the force will reach a half a million troops by 2012 as a result of the draft. Secondly, new training programs are implemented, which are made to include Afghani statehood indoctrination (essentially patriotism) into new conscripts and recruits. The objective is to get a force of highly dedicated and prepared fighters who will put Afghanistan above all, and will match the radical Islamists' fanatical devotion. Messages from the president are issued, condemning radical Islam (claiming it is not the true Islam), and the president refers to this as "our Great Patriotic War". We ask Russia and China if they can send specialists to help train our forces [mod response], and we offer to provide Russia with intelligence on links between the Taliban and the Chechen Caucasus Emirate. The Afghan police forces are reformed (basically like the army was), and begin an operation to fully secure the provinces and area around Kabul. Economic reforms are also made, in order to increase trade with other nations (particularly with central and east Asian states). The border security is intensified, and police are given orders to take over poppy fields they find in control of drug lords. A much stricter justice system includes harsher punishment for smaller crimes. We ask Pakistan, Iran and Tajikistan to form a security pact, which will essentially mean further military cooperation in the combating of terrorism and drug smuggling [player response].

  • Pakistani Diplomacy: We officially accept the offer of a security pact, which shall hereby be known as the Central Asian Security Treaty Organization or CASTO. However, the organization shall not come into effect until late 2011 or early 2012.  

PKK: Aggressive recruitment has expanded the PKK to around 35,000, and it continues to enjoy wide support among the Kurdish population. This year, the PKK secretly musters around 9000 fighters in the remote Kurdish countryside, surrounding and seizing the Cevizlidere and Copler gold mines, seeking to take the mine's massive gold reserves, defended by only a few hundred badly armed guards. (Mod Response - Successful or Unsuccessful) In order to distract the Turkish forces, bombs are set off in Antakya and Istanbul. (Mod Response - Successful or Unsuccessful)

Tunisia: Acting President Fouad Mebazaa resigns from the Democratic Constitutional Rally and becomes an Independent and most members of the Government do the same. Due to pressure from the protesters, Acting Prime Minister Kamel Morjane resigns and Mustapha Ben Jafar, Secretary-General of the Democratic Forum for Labour and Liberties, is appointed to replace him. The Congress for the Republic and several other smaller parties are legalized.

  • Constitutional Democratic Rally: In attempt to stay relevant, Constitutional Democratic Rally renames itself Tunisian Constitutional Rally.
  • Tunisian Military: Continues to support the protesters.

2.5 2011

Large scale protests break out in Benghazi, Libya against the reign of Muammar Gaddafi. Violence between protesters and the police break out, and the police are ultimately forced to withdraw, after simply being overwhelmed by militant protesters.

The price of crude oil rises by 20% over the course of a four-week period, as the Arab Spring causes production to drop, coupled with uncertainty of stability in the region.

Islamic State [Iraq]: With the death of Abu Omar al Baghdadi, it was agreed upon by the Shura to elect Abu Bakr al Baghdadi as the new Amir. The ISI initiates a process of recruiting thousands of soon-to-be suicide bombers from the war zones, spreading teachings of Jihad and such. Slow and gradually, thousands are recruited into the group, mostly Sunni who are taught about the traitorous behaviour of the Shia. Meanwhile, weapons are smuggled from Arabia and Chechnya to the ISI; in order to wage war against the Great Satan, America and the Kafirs. Many areas in the countryside are aggressively occupied, as they provide a safe haven to the insurgents. With the Iraqi Kurds having declared independence, it is outright condemned and the Iraqi Kurds are declared a black stain on the legacy of the Great Kurdish Ottoman leaders. However, like the Ba'athists, little action is taken and meanwhile, major attacks are launched upon the Hadithah Oil refinery consisting of 100s of militants aiming at taking down the refinery. Similarly, explosives are placed beside the Iraq-Syria-Lebanon Pipeline, detonating them to destroy the pipeline. [Mod Response (Successful/Unsuccessful)]

Pakistan: We continue to combat the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, while simultaneously continuing modernization of our economy and military. We continue nuclear build-up in secrecy in order to combat the possible threat from India. We continue to make major healthcare reform across the nation in an attempt to improve the quality of life of our citizens, while we continue to modernize the nation's infrastructure. We continue to put an end to corruption, while we continue deploying our military in Northern Pakistan and begin seeking our any Taliban bases in the region. We begin to discuss the plans for the Tehran Summit, soon to be done with Iran on early March. We once again as for Chinese aid [MOD Response].

Taliban: With the growing threat of Pakistan's military becoming more evident, thousands of armaments including rocket bombs have now been diverted south to the secret mountain hideouts of the Tehrik-i-Taliban which have obliged by Mullah Omar's orders to lie low on the defensive for the immediate future with little IED production. In Afghanistan, this process is reversed as the leaders of our movement have been on a furious propaganda campaign since the introduction of the Afghan "statehood indoctrination" program, our soldiers having recruited over 500 new brothers this half-month from majority Pashtun villages. Meanwhile in southern Afghanistan, troop training for a future campaign continues unhindered despite an increase of Afghan security in the Kabul region, and in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, our fourteen brothers sent on their secret mission continue the build up supplies that will be necessary for the assignment to be carried out. In late-February, Mullah Omar begins a similarly secret operation, this time targeted at Afghanistan with the armaments required to carry out the plot coming into Taliban hands through precariously non-secret supply lines in order to speed up the mission.

Israel: Military and economy expand. We continue our occupation of the West Bank, with plans to annex it. We decide to invade the Gaza Strip, because of the death of a group of Israelis near the border. The strategy mainly consists of bombing the buildings where Palestinian missile systems are stationed. We send soldiers to destroy the tunnels, and we attack over land, with the goal of taking Gaza City. We attack from the north and east of Gaza, to force the enemy to split their forces up, weakening them further. A main objective for the war is to destroy the tunnels. However, the true objective is to unify the area under one strong government. (Where do I post the algorithm?)

Turkey: Turkey continues to improve its economy and build up its military. The Turkish population continues to grow, now at +1.4% growth rate and numbering 74,724,269 people. Turkey builds up impressive armed forces, with many of new factories are built and 500 tanks are built each month. A few farms are built, cities are upgraded and roads are improved. Turkey continues to improve relations with Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Egypt: We continue to build up our military by recruiting troops to train. We continue to farm the land by the Nile river to feed our people. Our factories continue to build tanks, weapons, battleships, and planes for the military. The military makes a border control team and sends them out to protect our borders. Since the riots are over, we try to fix what was broken. Due to the price of oil increasing we try to make our relationship with Saudi Arabia better. With riots happening in Libya we try to make our border on the west side safer so that people do not come into our nation.

Saudi Arabia: Things continue as normal in Saudi Arabia. Oil production remains high, making us one of the top producers in the world. We also continue our military development. Tensions within the government run high, with some of the Elite believing that Saudi Arabia should back ISIS. Despite these tensions, Saudi Arabia remains anti-ISI. Economy is also improved as well.

Puntland: We are training our army and children for a big war with Somalia so she will give us independence. We are starting to make reforms and jail the enemies of the state. Our economy is very low, the inflation rate is very high - same with the corruption rate.

Afghanistan: The government of Afghanistan continues on the reforms as planned. Two divisions of retrained and indoctrinated soldiers (30,000 men), along with 25 tanks and covered by 20 aircraft, begin an attack in the southeastern provinces against Taliban hideouts, by first bombing the positions with aircraft and then during the shock storming them with combined infantry and armored units. A recently formed intelligence agency sends spies into the Taliban among new recruits, and sends information on Taliban locations and structure. Attacks are planned accordingly. Security around Kabul is continued being improved, and Afghani police capture a number of Taliban insurgents. Rather than shoot them on the spot, the Afghani authorities tied them to posts in central Kabul. Afghani citizens came and threw rocks and other objects at the captured militants. In response to the propaganda campaign by the Taliban, the president ordered police raids at several Taliban hideouts in the Kabul region, this time, the army and police took no prisoners. Training of officers and troops continues. We again as China and Russia for aid [mod response]. The Afghani general staff asks the Pakistani army leadership if they wish to co-operate in a joint operation against Taliban forces on the Afghanistan—Pakistan border [player response]. Meanwhile, the Tajik and Afghani border forces capture and execute several drug smugglers.

  • Pakistani Diplomacy: We shall commence operations as soon as CASTO comes into effect. 

Iraqi Ba'athists: The forces still loyal to the old regime prepare their forces for the withdrawal of American troops later this year, but the declaration of independence of Kurdistan from Iraq is troubling news and may force their hand. The Iraqi Ba'athist leadership officially condemns the declaration of independence, but in practice ignores it, as their focus is more in the Sunni Triangle and Baghdad rather than the Kurdish provinces.

Tunisia: Acting President Fouad Mebazaa releases hundreds of political prisoners. More parties, including the Ennahda Movement, are legalized.
