As the Imperium's MILCOM is nonexistent and we are facing a number of rogue threats, I am assuming supreme authority over all MILCOM and assuming the title of Grand Marshal of the Imperium.
The Imperium MILCOM has already been re-organized to more sufficiently deal with the threat. To this end, the old battalion structure has been replaced by a Tactical Operations Center (based on Nation Strength) similar to the one in which I was a military officer in the New Polar Order. The Tactical Operations Center will organize threat forces according to Nation Strength and allow members to request assistance and advice in a centralized conflict-oriented area.
Further re-organization will develop a military elite similar to the old SHADOWS unit that will act as a reliable quick-response unit. Less active active nations will be divided into military and administrative commands.
Instructions to Upper Tier Nations
Our upper tier is over-extended and beyond the reach of the majority of our nations. The recent "Struggle Vote" demonstrated that 70% of the membership has committed itself to "never capitulating" and as such we will not flinch nor hide from the threats of terrorists and rogues, regardless of their nation-strength.
The issue of upper-tier over-extension will be resolved by nuclear warfare. All nations 100,000 NS and higher are authorized to engage at will against any upper-tier raiders. We will lose nationstrength and infrastructure in the nuclear hellfire to follow, but this will work to our advantage as our upper tier drops into our middle tier.
The end result of our full nuclear retaliation will be as follows:
- Higher tech-to-infra ratios and a reinforced middle tier (60,000 to 100,000 NS)
- Deterrence against further attacks in the long term
- Credibility in our capacity for nuclear deterrence
- A more active and better organized alliance
I will not distribute any orders to hide in peace mode. Running from the fight will not solve our long term issues, but will instead result in more attacks against anyone outside of peace mode. Such a disastrous policy would only result in our being encircled and besieged long-term and the destruction of any future military treaty potential.
This situation is ultimately a character-building exercise that will follow up on the lessons of the last war. In Polaris I won the Order's highest military medal (Order Hero) because I was one of the best fighters and most helpful military leaders in the low tier. The Spirit for War will become institutionalized within our Imperium and we will not be seen as weak for much longer.
Future Military Officers please step forward!
After the disastrous prior government policies my priority is currently rebuilding our military forces to deal with any foreign threat, whether rogues or enemy coalitions. Part of this process is losing the weak-minded mentality and focus on building infrastructure rather than spies, nukes and military wonders. Once we begin to understand that infrastructure only exists to finance our military apparatus we can begin building war-worthy nations that can fight indefinitely against massive odds.
