The navy took a big hit, and we've been regrouping since then. If there's anybody from outside, don't take that as an "all clear," though. The army is still on high alert, especially since then, and we are legitimately regrouping. The navy is still tens of thousands strong, concerning crew, and we had at least 54 ships in our own reserve. Shipbuilders are still working hard. We are not a soft target.
I hear rumors of something happening in Begroun. Apparently there were some tensions, and Hirasin was prepared to send troops. Never happened, as far as I know. Maybe someone else covered it.
We don't hear much, the workers. What little I hear is from a few contacts in the military, and their telling me this is very dangerous for them. They could be put to death, as far as I know. I thank them.
The propaganda machine is running hot. Newsreels on the television, newspapers on the streets. One has a very motivational speech from Darhav regarding the naval hit: "The government is real, by the way. I've been part of both of them, and we are GOVERNING. Much harder than we were before. Also, Sibir Koran has a little dick, and he can kiss my ass." I'm unsure what this is about, since we don't get any media from the State Union, but it's probably something they said. Who knows. Whatever.
Considering everything: It's... not as bad now. At least the murders have slowed down. At least there's some consistency. People fight less, now. I guess it all helped reframe our perspectives on everything.
It's still wrong. This isn't peace. This is fear.
