Operation: Firestorm IV (2014) Photos: http://s60.photobucket.com/user/cgyarring/library/Airsoft/Op%20Firestorm%2010-21-14 Operation: Firestorm IV (2014) After Action Report: http://miairsoft.proboards.com/thread/50547/aar-operation-firestorm-iv?page=1 Complete Operation: Flash Fire/Firestorm event storyline (2006-present): http://www.miairsoft.org/index.php?topic=281.msg1618#new 2015 Storyline: U.S. Suffers Massive Cyber Security Breach “The United States government has announced it has suffered what has been described as one of the worst cyber security breaches in U.S. history and officials think the Chinese hackers are responsible.” “The personal information of up to four million past and present government employees may have been compromised in what officials are calling a massive cyber security breach. Based on the internet tactics, style of the attack used, and possible source; NSA Cyber Security analysts think Chinese hackers are responsible. At this time it is not known whether the hackers were part of the Chinese government, or were independent and merely working for the government. Data compromised includes; payroll records, addresses and personal contact information, and past and present work assignments, the information itself going from present back to 1985. The NSA and U.S. government have been urging all government employees affected to ‘promptly change all passwords and contact information.’ Chinese ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai calls the statement ‘Irresponsible and extremely damaging to already tense war-time relations.’” - Noah Hughes - BBC News, Washington D.C. International Aid Workers Assist In Nepal “The Indian recall of nearly half a million potentially contaminated rations en route to earthquake survivors in Nepal appears to be effective. But now the question of how to help the already suffering people of Nepal is once again up for debate…” “Dark, acrid, and suffocating smoke hangs in the air on the Indian side of the Nepalese-Indian border; where almost 500,000 food rations destined for earthquake survivors burn in ditches along the road. The food supplies were recalled over government fears of potential Botulism contamination, caused by ill-maintained manufacturing equipment. The Indian supply company responsible for the possible contamination declined to comment. The Indian military along with the Chinese humanitarian agency People’s Reprieve have been working closely to monitor food ration distribution and ill displaced that arrive at camps for the displaced and affected. The non-profit organizations Doctor’s Without Borders and the Red Cross are also making strides in Nepal. Nearly thirty-seven mobile camps and medical facilities have been quickly constructed in an attempt to help earthquake survivors. British, American, and French volunteer medical personnel have been working tirelessly to house and feed those who arrive. A British physician working with Doctor’s Without Borders called the situation ‘Heartbreaking.’” - Timothy Timm – Reuters. North Korean and Chinese Troops Assault DMZ Base “An extremely well coordinated assault by North Korean and Chinese forces including suicide bombers on a South Korean-U.S. army base along western coast of the Korean Demilitarized Zone has renewed fears that the conflict on the Korean Peninsula may be expanding into a regional-wide war” “Walls riddled with bullet holes, destroyed vehicles, and smoldering buildings are the result of the latest Chinese-North Korean assault on a military base along the Pacific coast near the Korean DMZ. ‘I’ve never seen anything like it before. Gunfire, huge explosions, and the fact it happened so quickly, really scared us. The two others with me that night were killed.’ A 27 year old army Sergeant told a reporter. The attack last night has renewed nears that North Korea and China may attempt pushes to take portions of the Demilitarized Zone piece by piece, no matter what the cost. The joint Chinese-Korean coalition have already gained control of several large portions of the DMZ stretching all the way to the Pacific Ocean. The assault has also renewed fears from the Japanese that the long-running regional conflict may expand to their coastline. The presence of United States military bases and storage facilities on the archipelago has only increased fears and probability of a possible future attack.” - Kelly Jones - Detroit Free Press. Supplies For 5,000 Arrive in Eastern Europe "Supplies to equip and mobilize 5,000 troops including tanks, fighting vehicles, and ammunition have arrived in unspecified areas of Eastern Europe as part of a plan to deter possible Russian aggression towards countries in Eastern Europe. The bill which was just recently on the desk of the Secretary of War is already being implemented as a strategy to discourage Vladimir Putin from any possible moves. In recent years Vladimir Putin has made increasingly aggressive political and military moves towards countries in Southern Europe, including the deployment of Russian military troops and aircraft near the borders of these nations. Along with several trade agreements and military protection pacts with authorities in Beijing, many countries in the region are becoming increasingly fearful of potential Russian occupation." - Brandon Nieman – Reuters. South Korean Forces Routed In Miscalculated Assault "South Korean infantry conducting an assault on North Korean positions north of Gyeonggi-Do have suffered unacceptable levels of causalities and had to retreat before further losses were taken. The offensive which initially went according to plan with infantry recapturing several key positions north of the historic city of Incheon including previously lost radar stations and ammunition depots. However, immense levels of North Korean artillery as well as support from previously unexpected light aircraft forced South Korean forces to pull back from positions just captured or risk further dead and wounded. The South Korean government called the failed attack 'tragic for the people of this country.' The failed in Gyeonggi-Do province highlights the growing problem of continuing North Korean and Chinese assaults on checkpoints along the demilitarized zone and the growing concern of Seoul and Washington that China and North Korea may make a future push towards Incheon." - Rebecca Rewley – USA Today.
