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 overthrew the Rodentian Government and military. The mercenaries and the standing Rodentia military became part of the Empire’s Armed Forces.

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.

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.

Timeline

Siege of Bobbygrad

Rodentian forces held up in a building.

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.

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.

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

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 United States were dispatched to the loaction which caused all the forces to retreat.

L-Day

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.

Battle for the Rainbowlands

Immediately after the battle for the bay a Joint operation between the 1st Calvary Division of Rodentia and Foreign Legion of Philmont invaded a 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 Begonian and 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 Des Plaines River through the Chaveleir Union to invade the Ponderosian Territory.

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.

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.

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.

The Siege of Bobbygrad ends

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.

Empire of New Germany reformed

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 worry losing their largest arms supplier.

Invasion of Hillda and Essef

On 29 April 2021 a New German 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 New German Soldiers crossed the border.

Rodentian forces are attempting to hold a seige as they remain in Little Warsaw.

On 1 May the New German 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 New German 1st Panzer Division and Rodentian Forces fought against Weg forces in the area reportedly from WM Calvary.

Occupation of Priory

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

Current Situation

The Weg cities of Silver Low, Key Tinalè and Foxtrot are occupied by Rodentian forces. The Rainbowlands south of Lawrence Avenue are occupied by Rodentia and north are occupied by Philmont. Rodentian backed and New German militias hold the city of Bobbygrad a critical economic, industrial and cultural location of Wegmat. Negotiations between UDCTC and the Urraca Pact have reportedly not gone anywhere.

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

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.

An often argument against this war and micronational warfare in general is that it is disrespectful to veterans who served in macronational wars; however, no official statement has ever come against the featured picture on MicroWiki during the month of April, which was taken during the Tungsten-MACP War, a war that did not have any physical combat.

Notes
