Combatants: Germany (player) vs. Namibia
Objectives: secure resources, namely, Uranium.
Historical Background: Namibia became a German colony under the leadership of Otto Von Bismark and was known as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-SÃ¼dwestafrika)â€“ apart from Walvis Bay, which was under British control. From 1904 to 1907, the Herero and the Namaqua took up arms against the Germans and in the subsequent Herero and Namaqua genocide, 10,000 Nama (half the population) and 25,000 to 100,000 Herero (three quarters of the population) were killed. South Africa occupied the colony during World War I and administered it as a League of Nations mandate territory.
Following the League's supersession by the United Nations in 1946, South Africa refused to surrender its earlier mandate to be replaced by a United Nations Trusteeship agreement, requiring closer international monitoring of the territory's administration. Although the South African government wanted to incorporate 'South-West Africa' into its territory, it never officially did so, although it was administered as the de facto 'fifth province', with the white minority having representation in the whites-only Parliament of South Africa.
In 1966, the South-West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO) military wing, People's Liberation Army of Namibia, a guerrilla group launched a war of independence, but it was not until 1988 that South Africa agreed to end its administration of Namibia, in accordance with a United Nations peace plan for the entire region. Transition for independence started in 1989 but it was only on 21 March 1990 in which the country officially claimed full independence. Walvis Bay was ceded to Namibia in 1994 upon the end of Apartheid in South Africa
But the independence of Namibia will soon come to an end. Heavily reliant on nuclear power to feed the world's fastest growing population and economy, our nation at the mercy of wildly fluctuating uranium costs and supply. With costs often exceeding $1000 dollars a kilogram, supply is often dried up temporarily. Shortages in supply often resort of lack of power for the nation. With all available fissile materials being spent on electrical production, no uranium remains to be used for production of naval vessels and missiles. With all local resources in homeland Germany and conquered nations Poland, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Denmark fully exploited, The Fourth Reich has no recourse but to seize the needed assets by force. Our chosen target is Namibia. With significant uranium assets already being exploited and with large reserves unexploited, Germany will be able to control a large quantity of the market's available uranium, ensuring enough supply for our needs and providing export opportunity. No longer a member of the UN, their army battered by lengthy local wars, and bordering our ally South Africa, Namibia is considered by our analysts as an easy target. The operation remains Top Secret, known as Operation BISMARK. The starting date for the operation is as yet undecided. New attachments to this file will be added as developments continue.
