One Atrocity Too Many

Today is 24 April 2015.  It may be another day for most of you, but it is an important day for a country known as Armenia.  100 years ago today, this country was attacked by another known as Turkey, which was under the rule of the Ottoman Empire.  They caused the deaths of 1.5 million of Armenia’s citizens through slave labor and torturous deportation through “death marches”.  To this very day, Turkey’s government denies that this event qualifies as genocide, even in the face of mounting evidence.

The men of the 5th Psychological Operations Group stand with the people of Armenia and their relatives worldwide.  We know war, and will not let atrocities such as your 1915 genocide occur in our nation or to the neurodivergent peoples.  In fact, we are training and deploying every minute of the day so our people will not perish from the earth.  We are more than a defense force for ASD United, we are an overall defense force for neurodivergents everywhere (the autism community).  There exist a large number of people who want nothing less than our destruction, to watch us sink to the bottom of the sea.  These people knowingly assault us without guilt or remorse, and cannot be trusted in any way, shape, or form.

Today, we will be interviewing Tom Melkonyan, one of the Airborne Special Forces’ original operators.  He is an Armenian man who has far-reaching concern for the recognition of the Armenian genocide and will do “everything in his power” to ensure people recognize what has occurred.  We have laid out a series of questions for him pertaining to him and his efforts to get this recognition across.  The interview will be conducted by Captain Bandolero, our unit’s S-5 (Civil Relations Officer).

[Amateur artist’s rendition of Major Thomas A. Melkonyan]

Bandolero: Were you born in Armenia?

Melkonyan: Of course, Sir.  I was born in a small village known as Vanashen.  It’s near Mount Ararat and has about 2,000 people living there.  My parents, Harut and Anoush, moved to the United States when I was only 4 or 5, I don’t remember.  We settled in Twentynine Palms and I basically grew up there.

Bandolero: Do you have family living in Armenia?

Melkonyan: I definitely do.  My uncle Artashes lives in Gavar, which is near Sevan, the country’s only lake.  He is married to a woman named Haroush and they have two boys named Vartan and Razmik.

Bandolero: How does the Armenian genocide affect you and your life?

Melkonyan: It greatly hurts me mentally, especially from the fact that it happened to my people.  The Holocaust was bad enough, but when I saw a documentary about that happening to my people [Armenians] was enough to sicken me deeply.  I will not rest until those who perished receive the justice they deserve!

Bandolero: If the War of Independence never happened, and ASD United never came to be, what would you do with your life?

Melkonyan: I would probably either start a business in real estate or cars, or join the U.S. Marine Corps.  I might have joined the U.S. Marines because of the Twentynine Palms base and the GI Bill for college and all that, and from there I would’ve used a business degree to start something else.

Bandolero: What inspired you to join the Airborne Special Forces?  Is it connected to your desire to overcome the challenges of your ancestors?

Melkonyan: To be honest, I was somewhat conscripted into the Airborne Special Forces.  It all began when I got a body count of about 510, which impressed the newly formed ASDU Army.  They offered me a spot in the nation’s first special operations unit, which they pleaded a need for the most experienced sharpshooters.  I spent about 2-4 weeks at a selection course and surprisingly became the honor graduate.  Then it was about a year or so of tactical training.  Before you know it, I was given a battlefield promotion to lieutenant.

Bandolero: How did you get promoted to an Officer?

Melkonyan: I’m not sure, it probably came with the honor graduate decoration.  I did find an online college program to earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Kinesiology.  It only took about three years because I committed to it with all my liberty time.  Divergence University had the best programs for both.

Bandolero:  What would you say to other Armenian people you meet?

Melkonyan: First off: Hye Em Yes.  That is a symbol of pride and devotion to my people.  And secondly, I would uplift them to do amazing things and not end up shallow like a family that basically embarrasses me deep down.  That would be the Kardashians.

Bandolero: What made you immigrate to ASDU?

Melkonyan: It all began in 1995 when my father Harut found out he has a very mild form of Asperger’s disorder.  He wanted to assist the colonists on the former Isle of Lateef in the fight for statehood.  I was 18 at the time and wanted to go to college either at Arizona State, Texas A&M, or UC Berkeley.  But since my father was serious about his people and his liberty, I changed my mind and went with him to fight for the country we have today.  I DO NOT regret that decision at all, I actually consider it the best decision of my entire life.

Bandolero: What are your plans for the future?

Melkonyan:  I have retired from the army due to a sudden influx of psychological trauma.  Unfortunately, my years of combat have worn out my mental strength and I therefore need to find another employer.  Yes, it is mild Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, but it’s not serious, just a “jolt” in the head.  But I will of course improve and find other ventures that the State of ASD United has to offer.

Major Melknonyan then ended with a closing statement:

Մարդկությունը, որպես ամբողջություն, պետք է ապրել ահաբեկչության իր ինքնապաշտպանության. Փոխարենը մենք պետք է գան միասին, եւ ճանաչել միմյանց ինքնիշխանությունն ու եզակիությունը, եթե մենք կարող ենք երբեւէ բարելավել այս աշխարհը.

Translation:

“Mankind as a whole must not live in terror of its own self.  Instead we should come together and recognize each other’s sovereignty and uniqueness if we can ever improve this world.”

Moving Tactically

The ASDU Armed Forces have tactical measures for combat, whether it is large or small-scale.  These measures have been developed by highly-skilled tacticians who have decided that the following formations and battle maneuvers are of the most tactical of battle plans.

Formations

Fireteam

IMG_20150423_094911

The Fireteam consists of four men in a diamond formation.  The heavy gunner takes the front position as the Point Man while the leader leads from the rear.  The two flanks, left and right, are the riflemen charged with defending the sides.  The fireteam leader is usually a Corporal in charge of three Privates with one of them armed with a heavy machine gun.  The fireteam is spread out 1 meter from each other and marches at this exact distance.

Squad

IMG_20150423_094958

A full Squad consists of 13 men and is basically a group of fireteams spread out into a triangle formation.  The leader is usually a Sergeant or Staff Sergeant and leads from the rear of the triangle.  The squad covers a 180-degree view of the battlefield and can easily form a wide arc of fire.  Each forehead in the squad is spread out 4 meters from each other and may spread out to 8 meters at the most.

Platoon

IMG_20150423_095012_kindlephoto-33465351

A full Platoon consists of 36-55 men and forms in a square formation.  The leader, a Lieutenant or Platoon Sergeant, leads from the center and has a 360-degree view of the battlefield.  The squads have four views: Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest.  The squads are spread out about 10 meters from each other yet they can spread out around 20 meters at the most.

Company

IMG_20150423_095025

A Company consists of 100-150 men and is formed in an arch formation.  The leader, a Captain or Master Sergeant, leads from the base of the arch and oversees the battlefield 25-30 meters from the platoons.  The Point platoon can easily call out enemy vehicles and formations

Contact Drills

Forward

IMG_20150423_095039

1) When a unit is contacted from the front, they immediately form a skirmish line and begin firing.  All personnel move forward while firing and DO NOT fall back unless they are under heavy fire and one element is covering them with covering fire.

2) One element runs behind the other to the other side of the firing element and continues to fire until the unit breaks contact with the enemy.  Usually the commander will call “Break” which is the signal to break contact.

Side

IMG_20150423_095048

Comparable to a forward contact, yet this contact comes from either left or right.

1) The unit opens fire on the enemy, moving forward with full force.

2) One element breaks to run to the other side of the other element.

Encirclement

IMG_20150423_095102

An encirclement occurs when a unit is surrounded on all four fields of fire.  The unit will form a triangle (Usually obtuse) with the wide base serving as the front.  All personnel must set their weapons to full-automatic if possible.  This formation can be made with anywhere between five to twenty people.

1)The front will throw either smoke grenades (“Pop Smoke”) or actual grenades.  They will then move forward, firing on any visible enemies or threats until they run out of ammunition.

2) Either the left or right sides of the formation can begin advancing, they will repeat step 1 until they are out of ammunition.  The other side will repeat the step accordingly.

3) All three elements will repeat step 1 until they clear the encirclement.

Flank

IMG_20150423_095112_kindlephoto-33425761

When a unit is surrounded on both left and right (Flanks), they have only a very short amount of time to react.  They will do the following:

1)The unit divides into two elements and engages each flank.  They always move forward unless they are under heavy fire.

2) Both elements escape in opposite directions from the flank assault and regroup when they have broken contact with the enemy.

Trilateral/Overhead

IMG_20150423_095122

When an enemy unit of around 15, 20, or more people heads into a unit’s direction, they may attempt to employ a triangular or overhead formation.  If they do, the unit will have to escape in the opposite direction.

1) The unit opens fire on the enemy formation, moving forward as much as possible.

2) One element runs behind the other, gaining as much ground as possible.  This repeats until contact is broken or the enemy unit is eliminated.

Final Thought:

Our nation is constantly under attack from hostile nations, organizations, and other entities.  They live as neighbouring nations and domestic enemies.  In order to defend our people and survive as a nation, we must perform everything we do in a careful manner- a tactical manner.  Being the neurodivergent peoples, we are held to a higher standard, a professional standard; this is why we must be the best at everything we do.  If it wasn’t for our nation, our people would be scattered across the earth, struggling daily for survival.  This is the life of our nation’s heroes, and it is here to stay.

How to Plan a Mission

Steps

1) Tentative Plan- Formulate your mission.  Select a mission type, goal, and expected outcome.

2) Discussion- Talk your plan out with other leaders, get their recommendations and compare them with others.

3) Unit Selection- Select the group of personnel you need/prefer for the mission.

4) Mobilization Order- Call them up for mission consultancy.

5) Review Intelligence- Study reports and observations from your intelligence-gathering echelon.  Use the intelligence to better compose a plan.

6) Finalize Plan- Complete your plan for recital to your selected personnel.

7) Stage your Personnel- Find a staging area and have your personnel gather necessary equipment.

8) Final Preparations- Have your personnel assemble gear, mission parameters, and other items of the personnel test.

Consideration Points

1) Objectives- Set out a list of objectives.  Break the mission down into checkpoints based on important points of the mission (Capturing, Securing, Defending, etc).

2) Terrain- Study the type of terrain the area has.  Include obstacles, barricades, and areas where traps can be installed.

3) Weather- Determine if the climate is suitable or difficult for the mission and prepare gear accordingly.

4) Allies- Find out if friendly persons or other units are active in the area.  Inform them of some parts of your plan to avoid confusion.

5) Civilians- Gauge the situation of the local civilian populace.  Take their attitude into account and determine their hostility towards your unit.  Take note of alarm systems, patrols, and anything that might detect you (barking dogs, stray animals, etc).

6) Enemies- Inform yourself of the enemy strength in the area.  Ensure you know what the enemy is performing, their equipment, and time they are present.

7) Equipment- Go over the equipment your personnel will need (weapons, tools, survival items, etc).

Personnel Test

1) Camouflage- Faces and other exposed areas camouflaged.

2) Communications- Place fresh batteries in radios and tune to proper channels.  Review hand signals, sign language, etc.

3) Gear- Tighten rucksacks, clothing, and other equipment.  Have your personnel move loosely and listen for rustles.

4) Weaponry- Order one round with one magazine to be loaded (if using firearms).  If using nonlethal defense, ensure devices are prepared.

5) Objectives- Ask personnel about the objectives thoroughly, and ensure that they fully understand.

6) Security- Order personnel to maintain security protocol by calling a gag order on mission details.

Example:

1st Platoon of Charlie Company is needed to secure the Europa Chemical Disposal facility 4 kilometers northeast of Paulson Cove.  They must guard the plant from 2200-0300 hours as part of the “Ghost Patrol” defense initiative.  The plant is 2 kilometers from the Cedric river, and is surrounded by small brush and vegetation.  There are many large rocks, ditches in the ground, and mildly rough shrubbery.  Tonight’s temperature will be around 21 degrees centigrade, winds around 30 kilometers per hour.  Don cold weather gear as needed.

Several squads of TRENCHCOAT troops will be performing reconnaissance nearby, contact them through radio frequency 9-37.  Keep in mind that they are looking for guerrillas near the Cedric river and should only be contacted in an emergency situation.  Escort any civilians you find on the campgrounds upriver to avoid deaths in the event of a chemical spill or assault on the plant.  The guerrilla force threatening the plant has been confirmed to be a joint task force from Get Aware and ISIS.  They are carrying AK47’s, RPG’s, and C4.  There have been 45 persons sighted in total wearing dark grey camouflaged outfits and ski masks at around 2120 hours Zulu time.

All troops will step off with 2 full canteens of water, 10 batteries, and an individual first aid kit.  All Class-01 riflemen must carry 500 rounds of ammunition while Class-03 must carry 2,400 rounds.  Report all deaths to the Company S-1, peculiar findings to the S-2, and return all unused ammunition to the S-4.

Prisoners of War

blindfolded

The reality of being captured during wartime is one of the toughest to handle in this world.  Over 17,000 of our nation’s men and women have dealt with this grim situation, and many of them have lost their lives as a result.  The three nations surrounding us have captured countless numbers of our troops and tortured them for weeks and months on end, without a chance at release.  Still, some are rescued or released, only to be found severely tortured, malnourished, and even permanently injured.  These are the Prisoners of War, and their stories are nothing short of terrifying.

War of Independence (1995)

During the nation’s struggle for statehood, many of the colonial militiamen were captured by Arrowgazia’s Shah and his troops.  They were subjected to countless beatings, days of sleep deprivation, and even electrocution.  Over 10,000 militiamen were believed to be captured with only 6,000-7,000 being accounted for.  One man, Sergeant Otto “Prowler” Lawler, was tortured by Arrowgazian troops in the mountains surrounding Sophie’s Grove-only a desolate valley at the time.  While being held in an Arrowgazian base, he was reportedly confined in pitch-black rooms for hours between interrogations and forced to inhale ammonia.  Sergeant Lawler has been confirmed as being imprisoned from 25 August to 4 November of 1995.

“I was holding a position near the Al-Sufi oil field when the Shah’s men performed a blitzkrieg on our post.  They tied my hands and legs together and hauled me off to what appeared to be a mountain range.  From there I lost track of time, sleep, and focus.  They interrogated me for what appeared to be hours, but I couldn’t tell; they asked me about any plots to destroy the oilfield.  I told them constantly that I was ordered to dig in (station) and simply defend the post.  Yet they wanted as much intelligence as they could shake me down for, that’s what interrogators do.”

Mr. Lawler has managed to continue service with the ASD United Army up until the Speaking Day War, in which he was severely injured by an unexploded artillery shell.  He now works as a tire service specialist for Heller Motors.

Speaking Day War (2001)

Over 4-7,000 ASDU troops were captured by the Guitarran People’s Army in the 22-day invasion of Partridge Harbor and it’s surrounding areas.  They were subjected to senseless beatings, forced drugging, and waterboarding.  An estimated 2,000 managed to escape with partial injuries, while another 2,000 were killed from the Guitarran torture methods.  One man, Staff Sergeant Henrik Hovanesyan, was waterboarded for 7 hours straight on 7 November 2001.  His testimony to the army’s intelligence command justified the retaliatory action against the Guitarran Navy’s installations on its west coast.

“They just doused me with a huge ceramic pot of water for only five minutes, yet it seemed like five days.  They kept asking me about my unit’s whereabouts, and I kept quiet as usual.  I even gave out an occasional Spanish insult or two since I know some.  That’s when they shot some sort of speedy drug into my leg, and I became sicker than imaginable.  The only real thing that happened was my agitation level rising to a dangerous level, one where I would break necks and skulls if I managed to slip out of my chair ropes.  Fortunately the Guitarrans had tremendously weak prisons which gave me a shot at fighting my way out.”  

Mr. Hovanesyan developed a mild dependency on methamphetamine, which was revealed to be the drug forcibly injected into him.  The dependency was corrected by medication and diet.

Feminist Uprising (2006)

The 2006 feminist uprising in the cities of Ocean Pines, Amway, and Titan Heights was a grim state of insurrection that claimed over 2,000 lives and injured 7,000.  The feminist rioters and terrorists not only killed ASDU troops and police, but managed to take some hostage.  There have been around 300 active duty soldiers taken prisoner by the numerous feminist terror cells that invaded the country.  They include men like Private Shannon Keck, Private Orlando Guzman, Corporal Patrick Perry, and Private First Class Kang Gil-Nang.  This uprising lasted roughly 15 days (26 June-9 July) and caused 78 billion Queens in damages.  The Department of Defense and Law Enforcement have collaborated towards better solutions for quelling civil disturbances to prevent future insurrections.

Shannon Keck was a truck driver for the the 21st Transportation Battalion who was pulled from his vehicle while delivering water and fuel to a forward operating base near Titan Heights.  His captors repeatedly wrote expletives all over his body before finally shooting him 7 hours later.  He was 21 at the time of his death and is survived by his brother Marvin.

Orlando Guzman was a member of an army reserve unit deployed to perform crowd control when he was attacked by rioters with “Morning Star” melee weapons on 30 June.  He was held hostage in multiple buildings around Ocean Pines for up to 17 days before a group of DIAMOND (Counter-Terror police) officers rescued him.  He was found with multiple lacerations across his face and chest, and two severed fingers.  He now lives with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder stemming from his hostage event and is missing his right index finger and left ring finger.

Patrick Perry was a combat engineer (Sapper) assigned to the elite ROOSTER unit with orders to plant demolitions equipment around the feminist strongholds in the city of Amway.  His captors repeatedly held a chainsaw to his face and threatened his life if he did not submit to racially-demeaning epithets about African people.  After a month of imprisonment, Perry was rescued by operators from the army’s TRENCHCOAT Unit on 12 July.  Today, Mr. Perry is working for an oil company based out of the city of Baldface and earns a desired living with the work.

Kang Gil-Nang was a newly-christened citizen who hailed from South Korea and had barely finished basic training 3 weeks prior to the uprising.  He was training to become a psychological operations soldier when he was called in to quell the feminist disturbances.  He was taken hostage at gunpoint on 2 August and tortured for weeks before his murder on 21 September, which was the day the insurrection was put down.  Kang was barely 19 when he was taken hostage and is survived by his parents and two younger brothers.

Prisoners of War are a type of person who have a will to survive yet battle panic from being captured.  If you know someone who was a Prisoner of War, do everything you can to help them continue life as free people.  They may be traumatized from their imprisonment and may try to downgrade their experience psychologically, but do provide positive affirmations to them as much as possible.  Remember: you CAN make a difference in a POW’s life.

Naval Base Bellamy Bay

2-prison-fence-watch-tower-and-barbed-roberto-westbrook

Bellamy Bay is a military prison belonging to the ASD United Navy near the city of the same name.  It is a specialized prison used to detain prisoners of war or foreign terror suspects captured during battles or raids.  It was built after the Speaking Day War to detain spies, terrorists, and prisoners of war in the event of another war.

Facilities

Bellamy Bay has six main camps: Alpha, Golf, Charlie, Sierra, Tango, and Echo.  Alpha is a 700-unit detention facility built in April of 2002, and is used for conventional prisoners of war.  Sierra is a 650-unit detention facility for unlawful combatants, those who are not part of an established enemy army; they are not entitled to the protection of the Geneva Convention.  Echo is the Psychiatric Ward of the prison, used for any suicide attempts or self-injury.  Charlie is a 300-unit detention facility for High-Value detainees deemed “too dangerous” for the rest of the camp.  Golf is where the tribunals are held while Tango is a black site reportedly used by the State Intelligence Wing.

Detainees

There are many types of people detained at Bellamy Bay, yet their are four main types.  They include, but are not limited to:

-Foreign/Illegal alien terrorists captured by the military or intelligence agencies

-Spies

-Prisoners of War

-High-Value Enemies of the Neurodivergent peoples

Foreign terrorists are either captured near a terrorist organization, within it, or on a battlefield.  Spies are usually caught within the AU’s borders, and some of our citizens and/or government employees are believed to be espionage-related traitors.  Prisoners of War are held in high regard, yet interrogated in a coercive manner.  No matter what category a detainee may fall into, they are usually held without trial, legal counsel, or even contact with the outside world.  They can be held for weeks, months, or even years at a time; there is virtually no chance of release unless the detainee is found not guilty of terrorism or espionage.

The detainees are usually stripped of all their clothing and given a red prison outfit which consists of a long-sleeve shirt and medical-like pants.  Afterwards they are fingerprinted, a blood sample is taken, and the detainees receive a serial number which they are referred to throughout their detention.  The detainees are also housed in cage cells that are 7 feet tall and 6 feet wide, and “repositioned” as a means of disorientation.  The process of interrogation usually occurs during the day, yet sleep is “readjusted” by the guards, who come from the army or navy’s military police.  These men and women monitor and control the detainees while the army interrogators handle the questioning.

Over 20,000 people have been detained at Bellamy Bay since it activated in 2001.  Many of these detainees have been convicted of terrorist acts and/or espionage and sentenced accordingly.  Around 3,000 have been reportedly executed for said terrorist acts with 7,000 released.  The other 10,000 people have either been either transferred elsewhere or have died within the prison. There have been over 600-700 suicide attempts throughout the prison’s history, with only 36 deaths as a result.

The detainees have been captured from many terror, espionage, and other groups.  They include, but are not limited to:

-Get Aware

-Al-Shabab

-Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS)

-Al-Nusra

-Department 32 Operatives (Including the Special Operations Forces)

-Muslim Brotherhood

-Normal Youth Authority (Arrowgazia-backed)

Interrogation

There are many methods of enhanced interrogation employed at Bellamy Bay.

They include, but are not limited to:

-Waterboarding

-White Noise

-Forced Grooming (Head and face shaving)

-Sleep adjustment

-Stress positions

-Religious/Ideological shaming

-“Black and White” interpretation during questioning

-Loud music

-Denial of toilet use

During questioning, detainees’ every word and mannerism is dissected and given an odd interpretation (such as the assumption of recruitment for terror groups).  Any electronics, wallets, or other items they have on their person are searched for terror-related material which could indicate past or future acts of terrorism.  Many cellphones and wallets have included material such as cards, papers, and images of either terrorist propaganda or actual depictions of violence.

Tribunals

Although there are no trials at Bellamy Bay, there are events known as “Status Hearings” which are used to determine whether a person is an unlawful enemy combatant or not.  Detainees were usually required to attend their own hearings in which they were shackled to a plastic chair and blindfolded.  The identity of the five reviewers is always classified, yet they are usually from all three branches of the armed services.  One hearing team had an Air Force Major and a Navy Lieutenant, and one had two Army Platoon Sergeants.  Sometimes a non-military translator was called in to translate for a detainee (At least 30-60 times).  Most detainees have been incriminated for terrorist acts and supposedly executed by the Department of Defense.

Acceptance Day

734611_510923102299907_659017990_n_kindlephoto-7791614

It is April, a pivotal month for the neurodivergent peoples.  It can be one of two things: a time of hellish resentment and humiliation, or a time to unite and better ourselves more than anyone else ever will.  Either way, it’s your decision on the path you want to take.  No matter what, the greatest neurodivergent value is patriotism.  Patriotism, being love of your people, an undying love, one that you take with you for life.  Let’s face it, all neurodivergents tend to go through similar instances of humiliation from fear-mongering and hate speech.

Isn’t it time we grew strength to overpower our enemies instead of just trying to reason with them?  Those that claim we are “broken” and need “fixing” do not care for what we have to say, they only want one thing in this world: our destruction.  Yes, our destruction; no wonder they keep pedaling this “tragic” view of our existence.  They are desperate for donations and followers this time of year, it is known as “April Madness”, and it’s an uphill battle just trying to deflect all the hatred and radioactivity.  Peaceful protest has been employed as the main form of opposition to the “awareness” camp, yet there are complaints about the “civil rights” movement among neurodivergents who claim that it is not sufficient enough to combat the hatred promoted in April.  Some claim that there should be a better model other than “civil rights”.

Here at the 5th Psychological Operations Group, we are promoting a “Liberty” model for our people.  It is comparable to the “Tea Party” in the United States, except it promotes the patriotism towards being a neurodivergent.  It encompasses the values of the ASDU founders, and historical figures such as Thomas Jefferson, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Thomas Paine.  It mostly consists of “pen” in the sense of peaceful communication, yet the “sword” is a backup tool with regards to self-defense (mirroring the Second Amendment).  The whole idea of this liberty movement of ours involves giving peace a chance and taking the fight to the enemy’s backyard if peace doesn’t work.  It’s basically what our nation’s forgers did, they used pen and sword to gain statehood.

The neurodivergent peoples know war, it’s been in our blood ever since 1995.  We grew tired of Cure Autism Now’s alarmist hatred and decided to form our own nation to unite the neurodivergrnt peoples in harmony, brotherhood, and undeniable liberty.  Every time someone declares their desire to destroy the state of ASD United, they should know that they’ll have to contend with its most experienced patriots.  Dealing with our neighbouring enemies for 20 years (however a short time) has strengthened us to our absolute best; this is the kind of strength every neurodivergent should have throughout life.  Many patriots do acknowledge that it’s a somber fact of life that our nation needs an army to survive, but it brings a sense of purpose and belonging that cannot be found anywhere else.  This sense of duty sharpens our troops and citizens alike, both physically and mentally.

We train as we fight, meaning we shoot, strike, and drop bombs the as if we are in actual battle at all times.  Every shot, every jab, every missile fired, should be a kill, and a definite one.  Those who wear our nation’s uniform are ready every minute of the day to wage destruction in the name of our people’s survival; they are more revered than any athlete, actor, or musician.  We have been revered as one of the deadliest armies on the planet; we never had that goal.  Our lethality is a necessity, a need, just like our need for a strong working class and experienced patriots running our delegation.  No matter where history takes us, the strength of our patriots will be needed until the end of time.

The National Defense

ammo-box

This is an ammunition cartridge box, the same kind utilized by our nation’s entire Department of Defense.  Our army maintains thousands upon thousands of these boxes for many purposes.  Whether it’s training, stockpiling, or actual battle, a large amount of ammunition is required for the nation’s survival.  The ASD United Army maintains a general supply of around 1-1.5 billion rounds of ammunition at all times as a preparation for, or even a deterrent, to a foreign invasion.  Every combat soldier is supposed to carry around 400-500 rounds with them on missions, patrols, or even defense of installations.

Department of Defense Doctrine Points

-Defeat is not affordable or survivable

-Defend the neurodivergent peoples, territory is not a priority

-Any escalating conflict must be defused by any means possible

-Wars must be ended or won as soon as possible

-Terrorism must be fought at every turn

-Human losses must be kept at a minimum

Response to Acts of War

-Have a large force patrol the homeland for acts of war or terror

-Prepare mobility and logistical efficiency at all times

-Retaliatory action should be employed by any means

-Certain objectives must be reached as soon as possible

Core Values

Professionalism- A serviceman must always maintain a professional demeanor.  His uniform, gear, and arm must be well-rounded at all times.

Humanity- A serviceman must have respect for human life and do everything possible to preserve it.

Example- Leadership is best when a serviceman sets an example of it.

Sense of Duty- Servicemen must always know what they are fighting for, as well as what is at stake in the nation.

Camaraderie- Servicemen must always band together in good and bad times, this is an important part of survival.

Weapon Purity-A serviceman may not, at any time, abuse their weapons or authority of their weapons.

PEO_M4_Carbine_RAS

Forward Operating Bases

101030-F-0000B-015

A Forward Operating Base is a small installation designed to secure a battle area without moving large groups of people all at once.  Our FOBs hold up to 300 personnel and have enough space to last them around 6 months.  In the event of a terrorist attack or invasion, these troops will serve as first responders, ready to defend the nation in less than fifteen minutes.  There are an estimated 30 of these bases around the nation, ready to respond to any incident.

National Service

Everyone in ASD United is required by the Defense Service and Manpower Act to serve at least four years in some branch of the armed services.  The army has priority over the other branches, yet there is a “disqualification” pipeline, it follows this pattern:

Army- If found to be a “4” (Unserviceable), the person is transferred to the Air Force.

Air Force- If the person is found to be a “4”, they are transferred to the Navy.

Navy- If a person is found to be a “4”, they will be pardoned from military service altogether, usually for health reasons.

The usual health disqualifiers for service are:

-Diabetes Mellitus

-Cancer Survival

-Blood borne infections, such as HIV, Hepatitis, and others

-History of Suicide Attempts

-Tobacco-related problems

-Asthma

-Severe Psychiatric Disabilities, such as Schizophrenia, Depression, or others

Acts of War

The ASDU Department of Defense has guidelines to acts of war and/or terrorism.  This “escalation” matrix is as follows:

Defense Readiness Condition (DEFCON)

5- Vigilance- There is no danger of war.  An active duty force is patrolling the nation for any threats or suspicious vehicles.

4- Threat spotted- A terrorist or potential invader has been spotted.  All available forces will respond to the threat and defuse it or call for reinforcements.

3- Mobilization- War or a terrorist crisis requires an immediate mobilization of all armed services.  The ASDU Army can mobilize 900,000 men in 48 hours.  They respond to any further invasions or terrorist acts.

2- Total War Imminent- All armed services are below maximum readiness.

1- Maximum Readiness- All armed services are at full readiness, prepared to strike on command.
