On January 26, the alliances of the Blue Leadership Ensuring Unity bloc jointly declared war on the North Atlantic Defense Coalition for alleged actions against the New Polar Order and allies. The war lasted 11 days, during which outnumbered NADC took heavy damage. Peace was accepted on February 6, officially ending the war.

NADC denied responsibility for the spy attacks cited in the casus belli; responsibility for these actions were later claimed by a variety of third parties.

Alternate war namesEdit

BLEU-NADC War or simply NADC War and Polar War III are used most frequently as names for the war. Occasionally references are made to Blue Civil War, and Blue Debacle. For the blitz, Echelon's forces used Operation Blue Lightning, FCO's used Operation Firestorm, NpO's used Operation Cold BLEU Steel, and OcUK's used The Big Payback.

Casus belliEdit

In BLEU's declaration of war, NpO Emperor Assington cited the following infractions:[1]

  1. A NADC member aided an enemy of Polaris, contributing to said enemy’s war effort against Polaris. Whilst reasonable reparations were negotiated, the NADC failed to pay these within the generous time of ten days.
  2. Another NADC nation launched spy attacks upon our close allies and destroyed nuclear equipment.
  3. Finally, the New Polar Order has suffered 30+ coordinated espionage attacks, destroying a large portion of our nuclear stockpile. This was later to be determined as the actions of the NADC.

NADC responseEdit

On January 29, NADC leader EmperorCharlesVI officially responded to the war.[2] His statement included the following claims/requests:

  • Despite claims by NADC members Otto V Bismarck and Cobalt, EmperorCharlesVI was still in power.
  • NADC was not responsible for the spying attacks cited by BLEU in its declaration of war.
  • NADC's failure to provide reparations per BLEU's first cited infraction was the result of inactivity by a banker, and as soon as NADC became aware that reparations had not been paid as planned, an increased amount was delivered.
  • NADC officially requested negotiations begin towards a peaceful resolution to the war.

Other responsesEdit

  • Both FAN and the independent nation of farung claimed responsibility for the spy attacks cited in BLEU's declaration of war.[3]
  • The Dominion announced that they would not participate in the war, but would protect NpO from aggression by third parties.[4]
  • Greenland Republic declared neutrality, urged the warring parties to seek diplomatic solutions, and offered to mediate peace negotiations. BLEU politely turned down the mediation offer.[5]
  • Some in the cyberverse have criticized BLEU's actions as an imperialist attack on Blue team independence. Though such speculation is potentially rampant, no alliance has taken the risk of NpO reprisal that would likely follow a public condemnation of the war.

War's endEdit

Terms for NADC peaceEdit

On February 6, 2008 NpO Emperor Assington announced peace terms for NADC as follows:[22]

  • Decommission soldier levels to below 30%
  • Decommission all tanks, aircraft, nuclear weapons, cruise missiles
  • Destroy Hidden Nuclear Silo and Pentagon wonders
  • Destroy missile defense, satellites, barracks and guerrilla camps
  • In the case of unlawful aggression toward NADC nations, rebuilding military levels is allowed, for the duration of each conflict, for each nation involved. Any foreign attacks against the NADC will be met by a BLEU military response.
  • 300 million in reparations to BLEU, payment to be received no later than 2 months from the time a list is drawn up and handed over to NADC government
  • Decommission of all intelligence agencies. Once the entire AA is in compliance, intelligence agencies will again be allowed
  • Additionally, NADC forfeits the right to field a senator unless BLEU states otherwise. Any member of NADC gaining more than 30 votes on the blue senate will be approached, and if a pattern develops, will be attacked and expelled from NADC. BLEU will perform any legitimate sanctions on behalf of NADC if requested.
  • NADC also agrees to issue a public apology regarding the actions of their former government member, Otto V Bismarck and his associates.
  • No Nation that surrendered to BLEU forces will be allowed to rejoin the NADC for the period of terms.


  • All those that surrendered to BLEU are now officially released and free to join any alliance they wish, save for the NADC until the three month period has expired.
  • Those that decided to nuke BLEU nations shall have much more trouble acquiring peace. That is, they won't get it.

The terms were signed by NADC and all the members of BLEU.

Results of the warEdit

  • BLEU gains total control of the Blue team senate
  • NADC loses 2/3 of its total NS to destruction, terms of peace, and deserting nations, and coupled with the similar destruction of the GPA and the disbandment of Atlantis, the NADC loses its sanction on March 31
