And since the year 2010 is done and gone, it's time for a news update from the country...
AMERICANS OPEN EMBASSY IN SUDEKIA:
(SUDEKIA) With the American National Anthem being played followed by the Bongolesian National Anthem outside, the United States officially opened it's Bongolesian Embassy and Consulate Facility in Sudekia, thereby once more establishing official relations with our native land.
Folks with a brain will remember that the US left Bongolesia in helicopters in late 1979 during the intense fighting of the Bongolesian Civil War. Diplomatic faux-paus, and snafu's aside, the Americans up until recently have bungled every attempt at Diplomacy within the country and have now only seen the light in reestablishing contact with The Bongolesian People...
Depsite the warming of relations between Sudekia, Washington and the International Banking Community in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands, there is still a way to go before the people of the nation can wholeheartedly open their hearts alongside their hands fully to the Americans.
American military manuevers constantly pose a threat to the stability in the region, and has required the NDF and our government to prepare cohesive defense plans for defeating the Americans at air, land, and sea if the shootin' starts....
We hope that the Americans will be interested in the terms of relations and of knowing how much better we can be in responding to those of a giving nature than of a demanding nature...
AIR FORCE TAKES TO THE SKIES
(SUDEKIA) Look! Up in the sky!!! It's a bird! NO! It's a plane! YES!
Its our beloved National Airforce in intensive air-combat flight training!!!!
For those interested, the roar of jet engines were recently heard over the cities of Sudekia and Port Tuziak as the Mig-17 fighter of the BAF engaged in pilot flight training. The two pilots involved in the operation took training in flight operations, in-flight aircraft handling, fuel-gauge reading, flight navigation according to landmarks and maps, and successful end of flight landing proceedures.
Injuries were kept to a minimum during this training, and the BAF is expected to receive more operational jets in the future.
All Bongolesians can look high and see the BAF, where "The sky is the limit!"
NEW DEFENSE STUFF TO SHOOT DOWN DA ENEMY
(PORT TUZIAK) Military Commanders and members of the press of The Bongolesian Observer got a first hand look at the new military hardware that was recently procured through international sales and business dealings.
Large displays of small arms and ammunition, repair parts and supplies, were shown to show how the NDF is being updated to meet the needs of national security in the future.
The highlight of the exhibit was the new and recently acquired Air Defense Missile System. "This system will be deployed by well trained Bongolesian military personnel with a good sense of loyalty and understanding of how technical things work." said a defense spokesman. "Due to issues involving currency and other resolutions the radar system for this has not been purchased yet, but we can still use this baby if the pooplaka hits da fan!"
This new equipment is just another way of the governments actions to protect it's interests and citizens from possible outside oppression.
