Operation Whirlwind
« on: April 28, 2017, 02:31:48 PM »


NEWS BREAK
We are getting word now out of Argentina that a violent coup has taken place. Military vehicles have been seen in and around the presidential palace Casa Rosada where earlier gunfire was heard. 

This situation is developing, but our sources within the Department of Defense tell us that the President is considering military intervention.



April 2017

Three weeks ago, a coup took place in Argentina. The destabilization of the country led to a power vacuum that was filled by the Comando Vermelho, or Red Command, from neighboring Brazil. They have taken the president hostage and executed any military leaders that resisted.

The cartel had long been paying off Argentinian military leaders for border security and to protect assets in Argentina loyal to the Red Command. At this time, the Red Command has issued a manifesto, dictating that all Western forces and personnel be withdrawn from the country immediately.

They have already begun using their military connections to harass British, German, and American shipping in the area. At this juncture, the United States and her allies are considering all options, but the current proposal is for special operations units to infiltrate the country and begin building an insurgency to combat the Red Command in the preparation for a large-scale invasion.

To be clear, Argentina is now the world's first narcostate. The UK, backed by Australia, New Zealand, and with German support have been conducting bombing runs and ship interdictions to prevent Red Command from moving weapons, particularly missiles, out of the country.
