The independent nation of Dignor has been controlled by a group of tyrannical and authoritarian political officers for several decades. The political structure in power has actively shut down peaceful protests, blocked communications in and out of the country and arrested civilians without just cause. The dictator in actual charge of the country is known simply as "Almawt." He also is the de-factor leader of the military forces on the island.
Approximately 72 hours ago a violent revolt by a large contingent of the civilian populace has sparked in the center of the country. It was quickly quashed by a large element of the Lingorian army -- with heavy civilian causalities.
Today, observation flights of the island revealed roving units of Lingorian infantry actively killing unarmed civilians. Intelligence staff has been able to acquire reliable civilian statements that the army is indiscriminately killing any who even slightly resist.
The international community -- and specifically the United States -- has decided to intervene to stop the Lingorian army from further committing war crimes.
Elements of the 22nd MEU have been dispatched to perform a early-morning assault on two compounds that are most likely to contain Almawt and his senior staff. If communications to these compounds can be cut then future military operations will face less organized resistance.Operational Order
