THE TIMES: THE RETURN OF PRUSSIAN MILITARISM

LONDON: With the surprising victory of the Prussian military over the NATO equipped and trained forces of Poland followed by vieled threats from senior Prussian officers towards neighboring Lithuania can we conclude that we have now witnessed the return of Prussian militarism? For all intents and purposes Prussia is ruled by a military junta, their promise of "service guarantees citizenship" only guarantees that the military rules the state.
Thousands of Germans are lining up for passports and filing for visas to travel to Prussia.

Today we learned the news of the establishment of the Kriegsakademie in Koenigsberg and the news from the National Assembly that German is now the third official language behind Old Prussian, an extinct language with few surviving documents which is taught in Prussian schools and lessons offered free to all at Republic Service Centers throughout the state and Russian, although it appears that the more Prussia distances itself from Moscow the greater likelyhood that Russian will disappear.

Can Europe and the world standby and watch as a military dictatorship grows in power in the Baltic?

Prussian General misspeaks?

Prussian Major General Paul von Lettow, hero of the Polish-Prussian War was quoted in a Prussian military paper as saying that the contested lands in southern Lithuania claimed by Prussia would fall in 2 days to the PDF.

This has angered diplomats in the EU and Lithuania, with the government in Poland giving out a big "I told you so" at the EU parliament. Moscow declined to comment. The Chancellery office in Koenigsberg has said that the statement by General von Lettow was in regards to a military wargame that was being conducted by some senior members of the Defense Force as a leisure activity and that no actual threat was implied.

Meanwhile in those regions mentioned protesters for and against Prussia were taking place, and at times leading to violence with Pro-Prussian activists brandishing clubs.

New Map of the Baltic Republic of Prussia

Following the peace treaty ending the Polish-Prussian War the vote carried out under EU auditors showed that the people living in the disputed lands claimed by both Prussia and Poland voted for annexation with Prussia, but at a smaller margin than in the first vote in 2009. Annexation was passed with 52% of the vote. Though bloodied and embarrassed the government in Warsaw confirmed the results and offered assistance to any whom desired to leave.

The map shows the current state of Prussia after the signing of the Treaty of Gdansk.

In other news all 72,817 civilian members of the Prussian Defense Force were granted their Citizenship status as a reward for their service to the Republic. This number included many from Germany, Poland, Russia and the United States whom enlisted as foreign volunteers. In normal times this would have required a further 4 years of honorable service prior to award.
The new population of Prussia now stands at 1,027,733. The PDF, all to aware that this war was won in convention vice the battlefield, is expanding to meet the new defense needs of the Repubic.

2010 Polish-Prussian War Update Days 3-5

Mesmerized by their stunning victory over the invading Polish Forces the PDF began a general regroup of their military forces in preparation for an invasion of what should be southern Prussia but is now still northern Poland. Orders given from Koenigsberg to resupply enroute and proceed with all haste across the border to secure as much territory there as possible before the inevitable EU brokered (demanded) cease fire comes about and to meet the main Polish Army; as it rushes north to reclaim some pride lost in the first two days of the invasion.

The PDF quickly captured the cities of Braunsberg and Goldap but were stopped from taking Bartenstein. PDF forces in Braunsberg under command of Major General Paul von Lettow pushed on to the Polish city of Elbing but had to pull away from that assault to counter attack Polish forces trying to recapture Braunsberg. Brigadier General Luther Suldowolowitz reinforced Goldap and the surrounding area. Unable to take Bartenstein Major General Wilhelm Braun maintained control of the area just south of the Prussian border and dug in to meet the onslaught advance of the main Polish army.

Five days after the war began an uneasy ceasefire was in effect, orchestrated by NATO, Russia and the EU. Diplomats from all concerned met in Gdansk Poland to discuss ending the war. After two days of intense deliberations the war was ended. The cities of Braunsberg and Goldap would be occupied by Prussia while another vote would be held in southern Prussia to determine if the people there still wanted to join with their northern neighbors.
