The '''Great Des Plaines Valley War''' or the '''Weg-Rodentian War''' is an ongoing war between anti-imperialist [[Liberation Coalition]] against the imperialist [[Urraca Pact]]. The war began when [[Edward Oaches]], [[Jack O’rav]] and a group of mercenaries [[w:Coup|overthrew]] the Rodentian Government and military. The mercenaries and the standing Rodentia military became part of the Empire’s Armed Forces.

==Background==
 
==Background==
[[Edward Oaches]] in early 2021 threatened to invade territories in the [[Rainbowlands]] in April. He was known as the Mud Guy as Edward was the CEO of the Des Plaines River Company. On 5 March Edward led a coalition of militants and former terrorist, [[Jack O’rav]] to the Rodentian Federal Center in Sunrise, Rodentia. The president of the Republic of Rodentia, [[Sinlo Chambel]] was evacuated to [[Prarik]] then later [[Two Pine]].

In early 2021, [[Edward Oaches]] threatened to invade territories in the [[Rainbowlands]] by April of that year. He was known as the Mud Guy, as Edward was the CEO of the Des Plaines River Company. On 5 March, Edward led a coalition of militants and former terrorist [[Jack O’rav]] to the Rodentian Federal Center in Sunrise, Rodentia. The president of the Republic of Rodentia, [[Sinlo Chambel]], was evacuated to [[Prarik]] and later [[Two Pine]].
  
Immediately after the coup Edward required that all citizens would have to join the Rodentian Imperial Army and that all current G.I. were to be deployed to [[Bobbygrad]] or defensive positions.

[[File:Standoff 2.jpeg|175px|thumb|left|Rodentian forces held up in a building in Bobbygrad.]]
On 6 March Rodentian forces infiltrated into Bobbygrad and took positions in a building in the north. New German troops took defensive position directly outside of the building, Weg and New Macedonian forces arrive soon later.
+
On 6 March, Rodentian forces invaded the city of Bobbygrad, taking up positions within a building in the northern part of the city. New German soldiers, followed by forces from Wegmat and New Macedonia, arrived soon after. Following a firefight, Rodentian troops ran out of ammunition and retreated; a platoon of the Wegmat Marines was sent to check all streets in Bobbygrad in order to make sure that they would not link up with another unit. The streets were reported to be clear.
  
The fire fight lasted very short as the Rodentians ran out of ammunition and left the building. Knowing that the unit was likely to meet with another unit a platoon of the [[Wegmat Marines]] was sent to check all streets in Bobbygrad south of their position. The platoon reported all streets were clear.
+
The Rodentian forces that engaged in Bobbygrad met up with other RIA forces north of Fort Priory. Following this, Alley Coalition forces took up positions east of these Rodentian forces, with the 1st Armored Division of Wegmat opening fire on them with a Airsoft machine gun. In addition, a platoon was sent north to flank them; a ceasefire was called once these forces were roughly 25 feet away from the Rodentian force, with the latter agreeing to retreat. Following the defeat, Rodentia formally declared war on Wegmat the following day.
 
 
However forces of the Rodentian Imperial Army met directly north of Fort Priory. The Alley Coalition forces took positions east of Rodentian forces. The 1st Armored Division of Wegmat opened fire with machine gun airsoft fire. A platoon was sent north to flank the enemy. A cease fire was called when Alley forces reached around 25 feet from the Rodentians. The Rodentians agreed to retreat.
 
  
 
===Invasion of Hilda===
 
===Invasion of Hilda===
The next day Rodentia formally declared war on Wegmat and invaded the [[Isadora]] area in [[Hilda]]. Alley forces were stationed at the bottom of a railroad that Rodentia used for their invasions. The Alley forces opened fire and Rodentia retreated. Police from the [[w:United States|United States]] were dispatched to the loaction which caused all the forces to retreat.
+
On 7 March, Rodentia invaded the area near [[Isadora]], the capital city of [[Hilda]]. Alley forces, which were stationed at a railroad that Rodentia used to perform the invasion, opened fire upon Rodentian forces, resulting in their retreat. Following the battle, [[w:United States|American]] police were dispatched to the location, resulting in all combatants involved to retreat.

===L-Day===
[[File:Weg 2nd Infantry.jpeg|175px|left|thumb|Weg Marines defending Huppert Canyon.]]
 
On 19 March 2021 Rodentia launched an operation with new allies of the [[Philmont Confederation]]. The first goal of the operation was to capture the [[Rainbowlands]] and cut off the main supply route to the northernmost provinces in Wegmat.
 
====Battle of the Bay====
 
Rodentian Forces crossed sunrise bridge and captured the intersection between [[Wegmat Route 4]] and [[Provincial Road 10]]. They also capture the Port of Hilda with little resistance. By this time the Wegmat 2nd Infantry and 1st Armored division were en-route towards [[Evansville]]. Intelligence suggested that the Rodentian forces would take the [[Hilda Highlands]] to make it impossible to supply the northern territories on Weg transportation infrastructure.
 
 
Both sides met at Huppert Canyon and a battle began. The Rodentian Army was unable to advance and held out on the south rim of the Canyon. The Rodentian retreated to [[Provincial Road 11]] and are still stationed there.

Immediately after the battle for the bay a Joint operation between the 1st Calvary Division of Rodentia and Foreign Legion of Philmont invaded a [[Nichensburg|Nichensburgian]] territory and continued the invasion through territories of [[Saspearian]], [[Tesforia]] and [[Paloma]]. It reached the Lawrence line in 30 minutes. Lieutenant General Bull of the Philmont Army was given command of the rest of the operation. The Rodentian and Philmontian armies were split into two. The Rodentian army headed north west through [[Begon|Begonian]] and [[Monmark|Monmarkian]] territories while the Philmontian Amry went through an international territory towards [[Aenopian Potawatomi]]. Both armies invaded in different direction simultaneously are would cross the [[w:Des Plaines River|Des Plaines River]] through the [[Chaveleir Union]] to invade the [[Pondo|Ponderosian]] Territory.
+
On 19 March, Rodentia, alongside the [[Philmont Confederation]], launched an invasion of the [[Rainbowlands]] and northern Wegmat, with the goal being to capture the former and to cut off supply routes in the latter. The Rainbowlands front of this campaign is referred to as the "Battle for the Rainbowlands", while the northern front is referred to as the "Battle of the Bay".
  
At this time people in the PUCS were voting on weather or not to declare war against Philmont and Rodentia. Troops were being deployed towards the border to defend Aenopian Potwatomi. Both war declarations were passed by the People and the troops crossed the border. The Chaveleir unit had to retreat from heavy resistance of the invaders.
+
During the Battle of the Bay, Rodentian forces crossed Sunrise Bridge, capturing an intersection between [[Wegmat Route 4]] and [[Provincial Road 10]], in addition to the port of Key Tinalè, with little resistance. Following news of the invasion reaching Wegmat, the 2nd Infantry and 1st Armored Divisions were dispatched towards the city of [[Evansville]]; intelligence suggested that Rodentian forces would occupy the [[Hilda Highlands]], making it impossible to supply the northern territories with Weg infrastructure. Both sides met and fought at Huppert Canyon; following the battle, Rodentian forces retreated to [[Provincial Road 11]].
  
The Joint army entered Rainbowlands Country of Ponderosa Hills with heavy resistance. The Invasion had to stop, Rodentian forced moved south into the P.U.C.S. to encircle Rainbowlands. They reached the Catherine Commune where they were stopped at a trenched division of the Chaveleir Army.
+
Immediately following the battle at Huppert Canyon, the 1st Cavalry Division of Rodentia and the Foreign Legion of Philmont invaded the Rainbowlands, going through the territories of [[Nichensburg]], [[Saspearian]], [[Tesforia]] and [[Paloma]] before reaching the Lawrence Line, which took roughly 30 minutes; upon reaching the Lawrence Line Lieutenant General Bull of Philmont was given command of the operation. Following this, the joint force split into two: the 1st Cavalry went northwest through the territories of [[Begon]] and [[Monmark]], while the Foreign Legion went through an international territory towards [[Aenopian Potawatomi]].
  
Rodentia and Philmont have agreed that Rodentia will occupy all territories south of the Lawrence line and that Philmont will occupy all of the territories north of the Lawrence line.
+
At the same time, the Chaveleir Union was deploying forces towards the border of Aenopian Potawatomi in order to defend it; following the passing of declarations of war against Philmont and Rodentia by the people of the Chavelier Union, Chavelier troops entered the territory, being forced to retreat due to heavy fire. Following this, both armies crossed the [[w:Des Plaines River|Des Plaines River]] in order to invade the County of the Rainbowlands.
  
===The Siege of Bobbygrad ends===
+
Upon entering the County, the joint force was met with heavy resistance; as such the invasion ground to a halt. In order to counter this, Rodentian forces moved south into Chavelier territory in order to encircle the Rainbowlands; however, they were stopped in the Catherine Commune. Following the invasion, Rodentia and Philmont came to an agreement where Philmont would occupy all territories north of the Lawrence Line, while Rodentia would occupy all territories south of it.
 +
 
 +
===End of the Siege of Bobbygrad===
 
Alley militia members backed by Rodentia officially stopped fighting on 25 March 2021 however a group named the [[Sakaki clan]] militia men did not. No fighting happened other than domestic riots. On the same day Alley leader Lav and [[Vladimir Baruh]] negotiated peace, the final deal was that New Germany had half control of the city and another half that was independent. This didn't satisfy [[Sakaki clan]] Leadership who vowed for victory. On 1 April 2021 passed an act that disregarded the previous peace deal. On 7 April 2021; [[Sacaiv]] and [[Vladimir Baruh]] disused a peace deal that Sacaiv liked and fighting officially ended. The two groups mentioned however do still feel anti-Weg and are planning an offensive against Wegmat as a whole rather than the entire Allied force.

On 9 April during a diplomatic visit of the [[Wegmat Prime Minister|Weg Prime Minister]] [[Cole Baird]], [[Vladimir Baruh]] announced that the Empire of New Germany would be reformed. Negotiations immediately began between the two leaders, going nowhere. The [[Wegmat Authority]] deemed in necessary to evacuate the Prime Minister from [[Bobbygrad]]. The New German Autonomous Province’s Military was ''de jure'' dissolved by the [[Wegmat Armed Forces|Weg Military]], however the highly supported empire had already organized a new military. Weg forces were evacuated from [[Fort Priory]] to defensive positions northwest of [[Westerwald]] and directly East of [[Bobbygrad Airport]]. With New Germany entering the war for the [[Urraca Pact]] Weg military officers worry losing their largest arms supplier.

The Calvary regiments reached the Rodentian city of [[True Rainbow]] and went into the urban core. At the center of the city was a heavily defended fort that was the headquarters of the 4th Army Corps of Rodentia. Much of the officers and soldiers were not present, a battle erupted as Weg forces attempted to capture the fort which overlooked much of the city. '''Fort Bat-a-ball''' was captured by Weg forces and a flag was raised. The Urraca Pact no longer controls the city of True Rainbow or much of the provinces of South and North Lincoln. The Army Corp’s headquarters has been moved south of the Lincoln River, Rodentia and Weimar forces hold the Lincoln Plaines directly south of Rainbow Bridge.

The Great Des Plaines Valley War or the Weg-Rodentian War is an ongoing war between the anti-imperialist Liberation Coalition and the imperialist Urraca Pact. The war began when Edward Oaches, Jack O’rav and a group of mercenaries overthrew the Rodentian government and military.

Background

In early 2021, Edward Oaches threatened to invade territories in the Rainbowlands by April of that year. He was known as the Mud Guy, as Edward was the CEO of the Des Plaines River Company. On 5 March, Edward led a coalition of militants and former terrorist Jack O’rav to the Rodentian Federal Center in Sunrise, Rodentia. The president of the Republic of Rodentia, Sinlo Chambel, was evacuated to Prarik and later Two Pine.

Immediately after the coup, Edward required that all citizens would have to join the Rodentian Imperial Army and that all current G.I. were to be deployed to Bobbygrad or defensive positions within Rodentia.

Timeline

Siege of Bobbygrad

Rodentian forces held up in a building in Bobbygrad.

On 6 March, Rodentian forces invaded the city of Bobbygrad, taking up positions within a building in the northern part of the city. New German soldiers, followed by forces from Wegmat and New Macedonia, arrived soon after. Following a firefight, Rodentian troops ran out of ammunition and retreated; a platoon of the Wegmat Marines was sent to check all streets in Bobbygrad in order to make sure that they would not link up with another unit. The streets were reported to be clear.

The Rodentian forces that engaged in Bobbygrad met up with other RIA forces north of Fort Priory. Following this, Alley Coalition forces took up positions east of these Rodentian forces, with the 1st Armored Division of Wegmat opening fire on them with a Airsoft machine gun. In addition, a platoon was sent north to flank them; a ceasefire was called once these forces were roughly 25 feet away from the Rodentian force, with the latter agreeing to retreat. Following the defeat, Rodentia formally declared war on Wegmat the following day.

Invasion of Hilda

On 7 March, Rodentia invaded the area near Isadora, the capital city of Hilda. Alley forces, which were stationed at a railroad that Rodentia used to perform the invasion, opened fire upon Rodentian forces, resulting in their retreat. Following the battle, American police were dispatched to the location, resulting in all combatants involved to retreat.

L-Day

From top-to-bottom:
1. Soldiers of the 2nd Infantry Division of the Weg Marines defending Hupert Canyon.
2. A soldier of the 2nd Infantry Brigade, part of the 2nd Army of the Revolutionary Army, defending the County of the Rainbowlands.
3. A soldier from the Chaveleir Union assisting in the defense of Aenopian Potawatomi.

On 19 March, Rodentia, alongside the Philmont Confederation, launched an invasion of the Rainbowlands and northern Wegmat, with the goal being to capture the former and to cut off supply routes in the latter. The Rainbowlands front of this campaign is referred to as the "Battle for the Rainbowlands", while the northern front is referred to as the "Battle of the Bay".

During the Battle of the Bay, Rodentian forces crossed Sunrise Bridge, capturing an intersection between Wegmat Route 4 and Provincial Road 10, in addition to the port of Key Tinalè, with little resistance. Following news of the invasion reaching Wegmat, the 2nd Infantry and 1st Armored Divisions were dispatched towards the city of Evansville; intelligence suggested that Rodentian forces would occupy the Hilda Highlands, making it impossible to supply the northern territories with Weg infrastructure. Both sides met and fought at Huppert Canyon; following the battle, Rodentian forces retreated to Provincial Road 11.

Immediately following the battle at Huppert Canyon, the 1st Cavalry Division of Rodentia and the Foreign Legion of Philmont invaded the Rainbowlands, going through the territories of Nichensburg, Saspearian, Tesforia and Paloma before reaching the Lawrence Line, which took roughly 30 minutes; upon reaching the Lawrence Line Lieutenant General Bull of Philmont was given command of the operation. Following this, the joint force split into two: the 1st Cavalry went northwest through the territories of Begon and Monmark, while the Foreign Legion went through an international territory towards Aenopian Potawatomi.

At the same time, the Chaveleir Union was deploying forces towards the border of Aenopian Potawatomi in order to defend it; following the passing of declarations of war against Philmont and Rodentia by the people of the Chavelier Union, Chavelier troops entered the territory, being forced to retreat due to heavy fire. Following this, both armies crossed the Des Plaines River in order to invade the County of the Rainbowlands.

Upon entering the County, the joint force was met with heavy resistance; as such the invasion ground to a halt. In order to counter this, Rodentian forces moved south into Chavelier territory in order to encircle the Rainbowlands; however, they were stopped in the Catherine Commune. Following the invasion, Rodentia and Philmont came to an agreement where Philmont would occupy all territories north of the Lawrence Line, while Rodentia would occupy all territories south of it.

End of the Siege of Bobbygrad

Alley militia members backed by Rodentia officially stopped fighting on 25 March 2021 however a group named the Sakaki clan militia men did not. No fighting happened other than domestic riots. On the same day Alley leader Lav and Vladimir Baruh negotiated peace, the final deal was that New Germany had half control of the city and another half that was independent. This didn't satisfy Sakaki clan Leadership who vowed for victory. On 1 April 2021 passed an act that disregarded the previous peace deal. On 7 April 2021; Sacaiv and Vladimir Baruh disused a peace deal that Sacaiv liked and fighting officially ended. The two groups mentioned however do still feel anti-Weg and are planning an offensive against Wegmat as a whole rather than the entire Allied force.

New German Revolution

Vladimir Baruh talking to a New German soldier

On 9 April during a diplomatic visit of the Weg Prime Minister Cole Baird, Vladimir Baruh announced that the Empire of New Germany would be reformed. Negotiations immediately began between the two leaders, going nowhere. The Wegmat Authority deemed in necessary to evacuate the Prime Minister from Bobbygrad. The New German Autonomous Province’s Military was de jure dissolved by the Weg Military, however the highly supported empire had already organized a new military. Weg forces were evacuated from Fort Priory to defensive positions northwest of Westerwald and directly East of Bobbygrad Airport. With New Germany entering the war for the Urraca Pact Weg military officers worried about losing their largest arms supplier.

Invasion of Hillda and Essef

On 29 April 2021 a New German, now Weimar and Rodentian force including the 2nd Observation Regiment and 1st Imperial Infantry were sent to capture the surrounding area of Rainbow bridge. A small Wegmat force apposed New German entry of Hilda however were repelled due to being out numbered. This is the first time since march a attempt to invade Hilda and Essef. The Wegmat President Vincent C. was present for a speech about the drug epidemic in America. He was evacuated when Weimar Soldiers crossed the border.

Rodentian forces attempted to hold a seige as they remained in Little Warsaw. On 1 May the Weimar 1st Panzer Division and Rodentian 3rd Imperial Calvary pushed up the railroad tracks and occupied the area .5 km East of little Warsaw with little to no resistance. On 2 May the Weimar 1st Panzer Division and Rodentian Forces fought against Weg forces in the area reportedly from WM Calvary.

Weg counter-offensive

On 5 May Lieutenant Dan Smith of the Wegmat Marines led a counter-offensive and liberation of captures areas in southern Hilda. The Wegmat Marines sent calvary down the railroad tracks towards Little Warsaw. At 4:30 Weg calvary crossed Rainbow Bridge into Rodentia. A reconnaissance mission into Rodentia earlier in the day cleared the invasion and reported little defense across the border.

The Calvary regiments reached the Rodentian city of True Rainbow and went into the urban core. At the center of the city was a heavily defended fort that was the headquarters of the 4th Army Corps of Rodentia. Much of the officers and soldiers were not present, a battle erupted as Weg forces attempted to capture the fort which overlooked much of the city. Fort Bat-a-ball was captured by Weg forces and a flag was raised. The Urraca Pact no longer controls the city of True Rainbow or much of the provinces of South and North Lincoln. The Army Corp’s headquarters has been moved south of the Lincoln River, Rodentia and Weimar forces hold the Lincoln Plaines directly south of Rainbow Bridge.

Occupation of Priory

After the end of the New German Revolution Weimar troops have been sent to occupy the Priory Grasslands and the city of Trel. Wegmat officials attempted to negotiate the withdrawal of Weimar soldiers in the area, however Weimar stuck to its unconditional surrender policy. Intelligence reports have said that it will be incorporated into the Weimar province of Die Heimat.

Whynofly

F.C.O. Weiler being taken as prisoner of war.

Kapreburg entered the war by joining the Urraca Pact and declaring war on Wegmat. On 8 May 2021 the Kapresh Royal Army entered Abierta searching for a Weg force that was on their way. Weg forces were not able to come in contact with the force until First Class Officer Weiler encountered Jack Morris. The forces moved south of Loves Peak where a battle began. Weg machine gunnery forced the Kapresh to fall back past Cape Chad to the Whynofly town of Interior.

Wegmat searched for the force throughout southern Abierta but could not find anyone and declared victory the General Landis Y. a Weg solider had deserted the Regiment and surrendered to Kapresh forces in the town. The remaining Weg regiment got the town and another battle began. Wegmat quickly ran out of ammunition and Weiler had to surrender. Wegmat lost the territroy of Whynofly to Kapreburg.

Rodentian labor camp offensive

Dan Smith, now promoted to Commander led another invasion to advance the Hilda and Essef Front. The main goal of this invasion was to liberate Rodentian labor camps. The regiment broke off of the frontline and charged at enemy lines. This forced Rodentian and Weimar forces to fall back to the other defenses near the labor camps. The current “laborers” in the complex were forced to evacuate. Weg Intelligence suggests that those who were employed in Northern Lincoln Province were conscripted in the Rodentian Imperial Army.

Urraca Pact forces failed to hold the front line and were pushed to North Avenue.

Bobbygrad Conference

On May 23rd Wegmat General Landis Y. and Weimar Marshal Clinton Greenfield who was accompanied by Sakaive the leader of the sakaki clan met in Bobbygrad to push for a peaceful resolution of the conflict. However instead it was agreed to have less fighting on the Hilda and Essef Front and the handing over of Priory to Weimar along with a few mostly ceremonial conditions. As of May 23rd it was claimed that no Wegmat territory are occupied however small pockets in Hilda are currently holding out around the province.

High North Front

On 28 May, the 1st Border Guard Division was sent to the annexed territory of Hesshnia, with patrols occuring in the Marshland region of said region until 31 May. During these patrols, several pieces of land in southern Hesshnia, in addition to HH-1, the primary highway in Hesshnia, were retaken from the ULF. On 30 May, Weimar troops were sent to northern Hesshnia, with heavy fighting occurring until 8:30 the following day, resulting in the ULF being driven out of the province.

Current situation

Currently Rodentia has been pushed out of Wegmat and North Lincoln and South Lincoln Provinces are under Weg military administration. Weimar has seized control of the entire Priory Grasslands. Half of Chaveleir Commune of Souther Community is under Philmontian Military Administration, most of the Catherine Commune is under Rodentian Military Administration. On 22 May a peace conference and temporary cease-fire will occur in Bobbygrad.

The Liberation Coalition wants an immediate withdrawal of all Urraca troops, the Urraca Pact wants the Rainbowlands under administration of Philmont.

On 9 May 2021, Kapresh forces invaded Whynofly and fought Weg forces. Cole B. was forcefully made to surrender the territory to Kapreburg, which was made Kapresh Whynofly. A week later the territory was secured once again by the Wegmat Marines.

International response

Due to micronational warfare being a controversial topic throughout the micronational community, the war has been mostly received negatively. Many of the first responses came from those who led nations that had territory in the Rainbowlands. The first responses were mostly in support of the liberation of the Rainbowlands. However, as the war became more known throughout the community, negative reactions from leaders became more common. Naveria was the first nation to retract their claims from the Rainbowlands, followed by Begon. Later, Isaiah Burdette, monarch of the micronation of Burdette and an M.P. in the Parliament of Wegmat, stated that the war was dumb. He later resigned his position as a Member of Parliament.
On 18 May, Kingdom of Nichensburg retracted it's claims from Des Plaines until the end of war.

A common argument against this war and micronational warfare in general is that it is disrespectful to veterans who served in macronational wars; however, some proponents of the war see this criticism as hypocritical, as there were no criticisms of the MicroWiki featured picture of April 2021, which was a photo taken during the Tungsten-MACP War.

Notes

  1. Member states Wegmat and Tesforia are actively engaging in the conflict.
