In response to the situation on Skarkon and the denial of a ceasefire by Khumatariat forces the Round Table Assembly converged this weekend to form a unified strategy on the future of the Skarkon war. Discussion included the following topics before being voted on by the constituent warclone clans of the Bosena Accords. I have the results as reviewed by the Gland Litigation / Administration Team
DISCUSSION I – CIVILIAN RESCUE EFFORTS
With the announcement by the Khumatar government that civilian rescue efforts shall be seen as illegal attempts at slaving [sic] combined with the ongoing kill-on-sight orders issued by the United Tribal Security Force, the concern has been raised that attempts at civilian protection and evacuation may in fact place the civilians of Skarkon at greater risk for collateral damage. Of particular concern are the actions of the Seykal Expeditionary Group, who have proven themselves to care little in the way of civilian casualties.
The Minmatar Republic has expressed their intention to lead efforts to evacuate the people of Skarkon II, regardless of our own evacuation efforts. However, we must not overlook that many of our former allies and Skarkon separatists on the planet may be processed as political prisoners upon seeking evacuation through the Khumatariat including those liberated from CBD prison work camps. Moreover, the Bosena Accords charter Title 1, Section 2B Subsection 3B cites that it is the responsibility of warclones to assist in the defense of mortal life when necessary. All this in mind, we face a difficult decision. Do we continue our strategy of assisting in humanitarian evacuation efforts?
By a wide margin, the clans of the Bosena Accords voted to continue assisting in civilian evacuation efforts on Skarkon. Our ongoing non-aggression pact with the Triglavian Collective places us in a unique position to assist in civilian evacuations in places where the Unified Tribal Security Forces can’t, particularly in the southern provinces of Gulormola and Ishuhuolvi.
As Warden I’m making the executive decision not to assist in the transport of any refugees off-world. Instead, shuttles will be directed to Electus Matari collection points. I can be reasonably confident that the Electus Matari will see to that all refugees receive fair treatment rather than if they were processed by the Khumatariat government.
DISCUSSION II – FUTURE OF THE SKARKON WAR
SARO Red Troop remains the single greatest threat to the warclone community. A specialized unit trained in hunting warclones, they remain chiefly responsible for multiple purges of of a large number of warlord enclave holdouts in and around YC118. As of this afternoon Sanmatar Shakor has extended unconditional support to draconian rule of the Khumatariat of Skarkon to carry out the fortification of planet under the authority of EDENCOM under martial law. Since this announcement, Khumatar Kril Efrit has authorized the services Red Troop alongside AEGIS commandos to operate “freely” on Skarkon II.
Regardless of our intentions or hope for a peaceful solution, conflict with AEGIS and Red Troop is now likely inevitable. How shall we respond to this crisis?
By a narrow margin, majority of clans within the Round Table Assembly voted to remain on Skarkon. Motivations varied from wishing to assist with civilian evacuations to combatting Red Troop and maintaining a presence after liminality reaches “totality” in the system.
Regardless, we were unable to establish a supermajority in favor of this measure. Unfortunately, many did not approve of the result and have broken rank in favor of a tactical retreat from Skarkon II. It is no small wonder why, under the threat of a Red Troop purge if we fail. With the winds in our favor though, we will prevail and continue to hold our ground.
Let it be said so long as men have tongues to say it that the sun fell before the forces of the Bosena Accords.
DISCUSSION III – DIPLOMACY WITH TRIGLAVIAN FORCES
With Khumatar Kril Efrits’s United Tribal Security Force pursuing a policy of extermination for all independent warclones, intervention by AEGIS / Red Troop forces, and our limited fleet capabilities in space we must consider all options in defense of our people and our mission; both the preservation, wellbeing, and liberty of mortal lives within Molden Heath and the preservation, wellbeing, and liberty of warclones. In this spirit, Warden Galm Eskola-Fae has independently worked to ensure a non-aggression pact between our forces in Skarkon and “Kybernaut” capsuleers loyal to the Triglavian Collective while ordering warclones on Skarkon not to fire on Triglavian soldiers unless fired upon. Do we continue to expand this relationship with the Kybernaut Clade and the Triglavian Collective, and if so to what extent?
By a clear supermajority, the warclones of the Bosena Accords voted in favor of normalizing relations with the Triglavian Collective and establishing diplomatic ties with the Collective and various Kybernaut groups. Discussions are ongoing with Kybernaut subclades to begin this process.
