Our colony in New Apocalyptia has grown too big for its boots, and has declared its independence from the Apocalypse. The move has been called 'daring' by the colony's leader, but has been described as 'moronic' by the government here.
Talks are taking place to try and bring the colony back into the fold, but it is widely believed that military force will ultimately be called upon in an attempt to teach these insolent whelps the meaning of 'respect.' In fact, preparations are already underway for an attack on the colony; 50,000 divisions of troops, as well as artillery, armour and air support, have been placed into Alert Phase Yellow.
"If anything, this experiment has proven what I knew all along," General Dawson said in a statement earlier. "It has proven, without a shadow of a doubt, that Civil and Political Freedoms only cause trouble, especially when given to individuals who never had them in the first place. I will continue to negotiate, for now, but deep down I know that I will soon be signing the order to attack the colony." The General paused for a moment before adding, "The colonists can, of course, expect no mercy from us; if an attack is authorised, then it is because they have been deemed enemies of the state."
Only time will tell what happens next in this saga... but it goes without saying that war is expected.
Glory to the Apocalypse.
