Operation Starfall can hardly be considered a success. I will be the first to admit this. Many lives of those fighting to provide freedom, relief, and sanctuary to the millions on Kahah III were lost at the hands of the Royal Khanid Navy, Royal Khanid and Kahah Militia ground forces and atmospheric craft, CONCORD, and so-called ‘Amarr loyalists’ who took up arms as Khanid capsuleer proxies.
Though our efforts to establish the Khadrea Safe Zone met with failure, the forces I sponsored and supplied held the battlefield in space. While Harkon Thorson of Ushra’Khan bravely led the detachment that dispatched Oveg Drust, three Nestors serving as hospital ships conducted harrowing search and rescue operations amidst the wreckage of battle despite being flagged as ‘legal’ targets by CONCORD.
These Nestor-class hospital ships were returned to my possession along with the survivors of the battle they rescued. Among these survivors were crewmembers of the Khanid capsuleer proxy defense flotilla.
Although Operation Starfall has been labeled as a ‘terrorist attack’ by those most vehemently opposed to alleviating human suffering and providing the means with which innocents can defend themselves from being mercilessly slaughtered, I see no reason to create more tragedy by holding prisoners of war.
Therefore, I am prepared to extend an offer of exchange for those crewmembers willing to return to service with the capsuleer proxies flying in the Amarr flotilla in return for any crewmembers those same proxies rescued belonging to the contractors and sub-contractors whom I sponsored as well as for those crewmembers loyal to Ushra’Khan and other allies who stood with us.
I assure any concerned parties that all prisoners have been treated with respect and have been well-cared for. Any who were beyond the help of the medical staff of the Hospital Ships and were of the Amarrian faith were afforded final blessings in accordance with the rites of the Ammatar Church. Their remains will, of course, be released should the exchange take place.
Finally, to dispense with those of you calling me a ‘traitor’ or a ‘terrorist,’ I have received no official condemnation of my actions from the Office of the Governor of the Ammatar Mandate nor from House Ardishapur. As God judges all of our actions, I will await the word from proper authorities, not those who deign to speak for them.
