Operation CHLORINE, or the NATO-SR War, was a short one day military conflict started NATO against the Shadow Republic. It ended with the coup of Shadow Republic by Ephriam Grey, reversal of the SR-Andromeda merger, and Andromeda surrender to NATO on February 4, 2008, less then 24 hours after the war began.
Reasons for the WarEdit
The real reason for the war had more to do with NATO's long held grudge against King Scouser and their belief that he was attempting to revive a GOONS presence on the black sphere. In addition, Ephriam Grey, King Scouser's co-leader after a merger, discovered and turned over evidence to Z'had'um of the New Pacific Order and the government of the Legion of a conspiracy led by King Scouser to violate the Legion's surrender terms to the NPO, as well as a number of inflammtory comments made against the NPO and Imperial Officer Z'had'um.
NPO and the Legion supported NATO's actions due to the above stated evidence which was. It should be noted Ephriam Grey couped King Scouser, stating Scouser's reckless endangerment of the members of the Shadow Republic and his violation of the merger terms with Ephriam Grey.
Due to the dialogged between Ephriam Grey, Z'had'um, and the Legion's government, Ephriam Grey was quickly able to secure peace for the alliance. In his surrender to NATO, Ephriam Grey elaborates more on the situation, gives specific violations of the merger term and elaborates on the conspiracy against the Legion committed by King Scouser and other members of the Legion.
