The eFalklands War started on the 2nd of April with an Argentinian Airstrike launched against the British region of East Midlands alongside an Irish invasion through Northern Ireland into Scotland. Following a wipe of the UK by these nations, a combination of Polish intervention and British Resistance Wars saw the UK liberated and, following a renewal of war with Ireland, that nation wiped. A theatre of war also opened up in the Argentinian regions by Spain, but this was short lived.

The Road to War

Babyboom Generation

The Argentinian reasons for war were designed to generate the largest baby boom that they could and to facilitate this they planned for a long time the airstrike of the UK even going so far as to approach the UK with a Training War proposal. Argentina has spent the last year fighting Chile in a permanent war, recently losing their colonies and the vast majority of regions to Chile. This state of affairs resulted in the start of the babyboom but to continue and increase their numbers Argentina launched their plan to fight the UK in the name of the 'Malvina's". The Training War was rejected by then Prime Minister Blue And Evil asking for it to be delayed, however, this was rejected an a very real war started on the 2nd April 2013.

Irish Nationalism: CUA and Training Wars

During the month of March the UK and Ireland had engaged in a Training War which failed to end when the UK requested it due to the Irish Congress failing to pass the no Natural Enemy Law. At this point the Irish government had elected to join an informal brotherhood known as CUA referring to Columbia, Uruguay and Argentina. This had been sold to the people as an alliance, however, it was merely a brotherhood opposed to the interests of TWO, an alliance that included the United Kingdom and Spain. The tensions between the UK and Ireland increased during this period to a point where a shooting war began as the Prime Minister attempted to end the war the easy way. Ultimately, this failed and peace was signed on the closing days of March.

The Opening Scene

Argentina Arrives

Argentina rapidly took a number of regions from the UK after winning the initial battle for the East Midlands. The failure to close the war at this early stage set the scene for a month of conflict and the war being centred upon the United Kingdom. Following their victory here Argentina rolled throughout the UK without any real opposition taking the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside and the North-East of England. This continued until they hit the South West of England where TWO made a stand leading to an intense battle which ultimately saw Argentina win and roll on, almost unopposed into London. This battle ended 83-70 to Argentina in the end. After this battle, the UK chose not to oppose Argentina's advance and instead hit hard against Ireland after winning a surprise victory in Wales and Scotland. Argentina continued to sweep through the UK until they had finished their wipe.

United Ireland

Irish war propaganda.
According to the British, Ireland's attack was a betrayal of the fragile peace that had been forged before after a month of tenuous relations. MUFC992, thenIrish CP claimed that they were asked to launch the attack by Argentina in a bid to help secure Argentina in the British Isles for a long time to come. At any rate, Ireland's invasion was built around the aim of uniting Ireland by seizing Northern Ireland and then rolling for as many regions as possible. This action ended almost an entire year of peace and trust that had started to be built between the two nations at this stage. Due to his actions and propaganda claims the war would continue long after Argentina had been thrown out of the UK.

Ireland was pushed back after the UK secured Wales following with the loss of Wexford and Shannon. When Dublin was attacked Ireland was able to not only secure their lost regions via resistance wars, but regain the initiative and push back against the UK re-taking Northern Ireland and Scotland. With these regions taken, the first stage of Ireland's war ended and they sat and watched as Argentina pushed into the last few regions belonging to the UK.

The Spanish Blunder

After the initial success of Argentina in airstriking the UK, Spain proposed to launch their own counter-airstrike against Argentina which passed. The expectation was that they would hit against East Midlands, the lost UK region, instead they struck against the Argentinian mainland swiftly moving through the unopposed regions. Initially, this seemed successful as they and Chile carved up Argentina. However, as events were to prove this was a mistake on the Spanish part resulting in the ultimate loss of all their Argentinian regions.

Poland Arrives: The Tide Turns

The United Kingdom launched a number of successfull resistance wars as they waited for Poland to launch their attack on Argentina, despite Argentinian attempts to block and moves by the Netherlands to cut the border between mainland Europe and Argentinian held UK. This success would not be halted as Poland launched their first attack and began to steamroll through Argentinian held regions and the UK freed region after region from Argentinian control.

The arrival of Poland, even launching their attack early to ensure they could invade, marked the real turning point in the eFalkalnds War. With Polish intervention Argentina was soon thrown out of Europe and into the waiting arms of Chile who completed the wipe of their nation laving them without Congress for that month. Conversely, the United Kingdom was able to gain a full Parliament as they pushed on into Ireland as they began the liberation of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Anglo-Irish Conflict

British Media suggested a heavy belief and desire to take revenge on Ireland leading Parliament to reject a peace deal with Ireland that would return all original regions. Even a hefty 100 gold per month rent for Northern Ireland and peace was rejected by the UK and Irish Congress leading the two nations to continue their war from where they had left of. Irish media also suggested a desire to continue the war as their nationalistic feelings were running high over the conquest of Northern Ireland and the desire to remain united prevented peace talks from coming into fruition.

This time the war went differently for the United Kingdom as they easily won the first MPP battle in the recently liberated Scotland and regained Northern Ireland at the same time. Following these victories the United Kingdom was able to sweep down through Ireland. The Irish focus remained upon winning resistance wars as they were unable to compete with the vengeful UK and her allies in direct battles, however, with the backing of TWO Nations the UK was able to hold onto most of these regions throughout the war culminating in a wipe for Ireland at the end of the month.

The Future

British Isles Day 1990.
The future of both Ireland and the United Kingdom is uncertain as they enter into May 2013 as to whether the war will continue or if peace can be signed. Altercations between the British government and Irish President, MUFC992, has led many senior Cabinet Ministers to claim the UK will not make peace with him, that peace is near on impossible. Prime Minister Jimbojoy has said that peace can only be made once he has been removed from the Irish political scene. The Irish decision to not elect him into power for the next month may see peace being signed between Ireland and the United Kingdom as administrations change.

As for Argentina, despite some widespread anger in the United Kingdom towards them, among the political elite the feeling is relatively neutral which may facilitate their aligning with TWO as the world shifts towards World War VI.
