SENATE APPROVES ADDITIONAL GROUND FORCES TO WARTORN REGIONS

Villore - Citing threats from both Sansha's Nation and the Caldari State, the Minister of Defence has announced that the Senate has approved an executive order to increase the level of planetary troops currently stationed across worlds in Placid, Verge Vendor and Essence. Following the loss of Harroule and Esesier, both the Senate and military command has applied pressure to deploy ground forces to worlds that previously were undefended, void of any military presence. While it is not clear how many contingents will be deployed exactly, military experts are confident that the primary intention of the move is to deny the Caldari industrial use of any contested worlds, instead of defending against Sansha's Nation, who have mostly abandoned planetary abductions.

"Autonomous worlds in the Federation are loathe to welcome central military presence" said Zorivan Adoo, a professor of strategic studies at Hedion University, "However, citizens of such lowsec territory would find the threat of Sansha's Nation far more grim than Caldari occupation, even if the former no longer pose a threat to planetary populations, finding this more than enough reason to allow Federal military deployment. By militarizing these historically peaceful worlds, the Federation hopes to make any muscling in by State megacorporations extremely difficult, as even with gaining space superiority, the Caldari will be forced to fight a conventional battle to keep population centers intact for industrial exploitation"

Severant en Severasse from Vlillirier VI, village elder of a farming town that supplies the Roden Shipyard in orbit, said "It's about time. For years, this whole region has been left to suffer at the hands of the Serpentis and Guristas, and though Vlillirier itself has a relatively secure frontier population thanks to Roden Security and the Wiyrkomi Peace Corps, other places haven't been so lucky. With the military deployed, the Caldari will have to think twice about invading our homes"

Not everyone has been so welcoming. Vicent Raspa, a Mannar deadspace colonist in Aubenall, was particularly opposed. "This is just another attempt by the Federation to muster further influence over these historically autonomous territories, waving at some Caldari or Sansha threat as justification. The Army's being sent to temperate worlds, those who experience full political franchise and aren't mere colonies. What about the countless deadspace outposts and settlements on non-terrestrial worlds? The Caldari are going to go after those, first, as they are main sources of a system's industrial output, mostly. Of course, they hold no political value, so Villore is happy to cede them, while leveraging their shadow over what 'really matters'"

Given the extremely low density of most lowsec planets, however, military presence will likely not affect the majority of inhabitants until the situation calls for it. This move by the Federation coincides with a rapid increase of planetary warfare by all four empires in recent months.

I keep seeing changes, but it always looks the same.

I don't know who I want to cheer for anymore. I can't see who's the good guys, the bad guys or even the spectators. I don't know what I want to happen, given the power to decide the fate of the cluster I'd just stand stupefied and fumble everyone into their deaths.

I can at least say the Federation hasn't done so badly that it can't survive. I don't know where it's headed but with so many unrelenting threats and no clear solution (but plenty of exacerbation) sometimes I think the government as a whole would benefit more in dividing into smaller states to better facilitate opposing interests.

This is a pretty big claim, sending more troops into a combat zone when the Federation still has a massive security risk sat on the doorstep of its homeworld.

I'd like to see some actual proof of this, and clarification from the Senate itself rather than a half baked news story from a capsuleer claiming to be a scope reporter.

I'll second that. Really good solution, that will end the war. Divide Federation into several independent states, leave one of these states only on Gallente Prime, so Federation won't want Caldari Prime back, as the system as a whole won't be part of their state, Caldari Prime will stay for Caldari State, Gallente Prime for Gallente State, and no more reason for war!

Really, excellent solution. To achieve this we need to think how to decapitate gallente government, because while it is functioning, it won't let us to divide the Federation, they are too power-greedy bastards.

Yes this days everyone writes what he makes up and them it instantly it becomes true, it seems more and more are following that path.

Pathetic.
