Since IL can't figure out how to man a FREE gunshow table in Kankakee, MN/WI will do it for them!!   **)

I'm meeting Taylor to pick up my AR500 D-targets as he returns from the IL IBC along I-94, and then Jackie the Rifledog and I are heading down to (wo)man an Appleseed table at the Kankakee Gunshow at the Kankakee Co Fairgrounds.

If anybody else has nothing to do this weekend, you're invited to come 7th step in the land of gangsters and politicians for the sake of the Nation ^:)^

Checkmate King 2, this is White Rook, over.

Go ahead, White Rook.

Have penetrated into the land of the Illinnoying.
Studies and Observation Group has established secure RON position along with K9 contingent.
Plan dawn assault on objective "K" and will fix local elements in place as the anvil for IN's eastern hammer movement 23Jan.

Little resistance expected as locals are heavily engaged in supplicating their deities for the salvation of their Ursae unit, also facing a Northern onslaught 23Jan on their Soldiering Field.

White Rook out.

ATTENTION!              ATTENTION!          ATTENTION        ATTENTION!         ATTENTION! THIS IS THE LAST IN A SERIES OF "WAR OF THE WORLDS"-STYLE FORUM POSTS, INTENDED FOR TONGUE-IN-CHEEK HUMOR AND ENTERTAINMENT AND IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO DEPICT, REPRESENT OR IMPLY ANY OPERATIONS OF THE APPLESEED PROJECT OR THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERANS ASSOCIATION.

IF CAUGHT OR KILLED, FRED WILL DISAVOW ANY KNOWLEDGE OF MY ACTIONS (but hopefully he will see the humor in it and have a little chuckle)


AAR: Border Raid, Objective K3, Land of the Illinnoying

A free GS table was offered for AS use in the Land of Lincoln, but Illinnoying personnel were opting to decline the offer due to core personnel fatigue and inability to appoint volunteers from reserve components.  Appleseed Mission in IL faced compromise and lost opportunity for 7th stepping.  MN-based White Rook boarder raid unit and K9 contingent mobilized to help save the Nation through actions meeting or exceeding Appleseed standards.
ROE: no fratricide, minimize expenditure of AS resources, humorous harrassment and provocation of guilt in couch-bound 'Seeders allowed within partially-relaxed CPR criteria.

Mission objectives
Save pride of Appleseed Project
7th step at every opportunity, meet Great Lakes Region personnel
Mobilize previously inactive personnel in IL AOR
Secure GS booth supplies from indigenous resources and supplement via AIO
Test MN resources through EDRE (Emergency Deployment Readiness Exercise)
Compensate for lack of available AS shoots in the the northern Midwest AO on a perfectly good weekend of double-digit subzero temperatures

Commander's intent

Tease, taunt and provoke sufficient sense of guilt in Couch-bound IL 'seeders to generate volunteer activity and save face for IL AOR.
Coordinate with indigenous agents to ensure that Natl and IL literature meets or exceeds AS standards for 7th step operations in the GS setting.
Locate and secure a RON position within the region of operations amenable to K9 contingent bivouac.
Exfil AOEmployment, load "Seedmobile" with sufficient supplies for METL, and successfully execute ground insertion under cover of night.
Avoid draconian IL laws that infringe on the 1st and 2nd Amendments rights of American citizens.

OPFOR commander's intent
Keep IL 'seeders on the couch and allow continued erosion of citizen's rights.
Disrupt infil and/or exfil of border raiding party.
Prevent coordination of IL/IN/MN components.
Lull populace into "Chips and Circus" coma through nationally-televised Gladiator contest.

Relevant TTP's
Plan ahead, but prepare to Adapt, Improvise and Overcome.
Accomplish the Appleseed Mission, never give up, never quit, never leave a fallen 'seeder.

Summary of events and key issues:

Veni, vidi, vici, vamoosed after successful GS 7th stepping, no fratricide or friendly casualties.
Volunteer efforts of Ewald, 2thdoc, George63 and IN border raider AuntieBellum combined for effective dissemination of Appleseed Message and AS opportunities throughout the Land of the Illinnoying, while also providing diversion for exfil of MN raiding team.
Successfully met with local Elder "The Pappy," presenting a friendship gift of several rds .50BMG and receiving box of 45cal semi-wads in return.  Given tour of tribal production facilities and resources with only minimal self-humilation by excessive salivation.  Garand Poobah appears to have indulged in excessive bore solvent ingestion and did not arrive at the rendezous location to effect IL's planned prisoner snatch.

Areas of improvement needed
Less than adequate success in mobilizing couch-bound IL 'Seeders, despite use of aggressive harrassment, humiliation and guilt-provocation.  This is likely the result of the IL populace being constantly exposed to aggressive harrassment, humiliation and guilt-provocation by their draconian statutes and civil-disservants.

Closing comments
Overall a very successful operation, with effective face-saving for the Appleseed Project, advancement of the Appleseed Mission through 7th stepping at a busy IL GS, and efficient completion of a MN EDRE.

Aut viam inveniam aut faciam- will find a way or I will make one".
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."  one who has not qualified himself with the M-16 may not be considered to be a responsible citizen."

—Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

"Terrorism is the best political weapon, for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death."
-- Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator
 

"Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in
