Microwar on Terror was partially been fought by micronationalists serving in their respective macronational armed forces as well as on a micronational front.

The Micronational War on Terror was a part of the Macronational War on Terror. Involved nations rally its notability, because it is one of the few physical wars in micronational history. The war itself did not involve micronational armed forces, but rather individuals who had micronational citizenship that participated in the fighting while serving in a macronational military. The conflict periodically would spark interest in the community but would never be taken seriously. After over three years of official "fighting" it was declared by New Europe, the only micronation engaged in the conflict by 2012, that the war would be ended by May 2013. The conflict closed on 01 May 2013.

Prelude[edit | edit source]

The War over Micronational Communism began on 28 June 2009. It was later found out that a terrorist organization known as the Micronational Advice Bureau was behind the Civil War in Murrayfield which was the reason for War on Communism. On 28 June, Emperor Malum I of the Ohio Empire declared that terrorism was against man's universal rights, thus enabling him to enforce the first Malum Doctrine and declare war on the act of terrorism and all nations who use it.

Physical War[edit | edit source]

Ohian General Travis Smith was stationed in Iraq by 2009. He agreed to fight as a soldier for the United States and the Ohio Empire. On the home front, the Emperor hoped to gain the support of micronations around the world. The war has gone mostly ignored due to the many problems in the community that have occured since it began. When Ohio joined the North American Confederation at the end of 2010 the question on whether or not to continue the war was opened. Considering that some citizens have ties to the U.S. envolvement in the Middle East the confederation replaced Ohio as a leader in the war. After that, in June 2012, New Europe took on activity in the war as it has four citizens in a macronational military.

Chronology[edit | edit source]

European Front[edit | edit source]

On 29 June 29 2009 the Cheslovian Federation joined the micronational war on terrorism. They immediately started the "European Front", the Cheslovian preferred area of combat against terrorist forces. Although Cheslovia will not be attacking macronational terrorists (only informing macronational police of their activities), Cheslovia intended to attack micronational terrorists.

Baltia exits the war[edit | edit source]

On 03 July 2009 all Baltian nations (Cheslovia, Malokaz and Ud Mahazar) decided to pull out of the war. The decision came after a brief talk between leaders of the nations on 02 July, which continued on the following day. Then, President Urosh Dushanov addressed the attendants at the meeting with stating that the conflict "was almost pointless, after seeing that terrorism is not affecting, or at least directly affecting any Baltian nation, or for that matter, Oxfordshire. If we are the victims of "terrorism", or rather, the victims of violence we will defend ourselves. The European front will no longer be headed by the Cheslovian Federation but the front will remain open for others to lead". It is unknown whether or not the debate between Robert Lethler and Malum I had any part in the decision, though some leaders, particularly Urosh Dushanov, have commented on it.

War Continues[edit | edit source]

The war has since been all but abandoned by all micronations. The North American Confederation breifly discussed the war and whether or not to declare it over. Though it was tied into the macronational war on terror and it was decided that it would not end until the macronational operations ceased. The North American monarch proposed continuing the war and it was unanimously agreed upon by government. The confederation only stated its continuation of the war itself and not what sort of actions it would take on it. In the end the North American Confederation collapsed and no active participation on its part occured.

On 01 May 2011 Osama bin Laden was killed in a bunker in Pakistan by US Navy SEALS. The war as of 02 May sparked brief interest in the community but no major nations participated and the war once again fell into the back of the communities mind. However as of June 2012 New Europe declared participation in the war as its citizens are part of a macronational military. Although inactive, the New European Kaiser declared that this is the only field in which New Europe would remain active.

Campaign close[edit | edit source]

On 17 November 2012, the New European government set up an international poll to determine if it had the right to end the war. Although the opinions across the community felt the war was mostly comedic and did not take it seriously, a total of 23 nations voted. 73.91% of those who voted determined New Europe could legally end the war. New European soldiers under the command of General Field Marshal Juan Carlos returned from over sea's service in March 2013 just prior to the dissolution of the government. When the provisional government came to power in April it was agreed to continue the scheduled end of the war. The Micronational War on Terror officially ended on 01 May 2013.
