2157 The end of the Second Solar War
PAU was not able to realize its dream of a corridor between earth and it colonies. The war left the PAU nearly broke and its government in turmoil. PAU was left split as part of its colonies formed the Commonwealth of African States. The government falls at the end of the year.
2158 A New Day
The year began with a vote of no confidence for the new government after 90 days of failures and civil unrest growing each day a new government is formed. By the end of the year the government has stabilize.
2162 Food Riots in West Africa
While the colonies recovered in short order the real problems were centered close to home. A cargo ship carrying a plant virus cashed near the city of Bamenda in the state of Cameroon causing an ecological disaster. As the virus spread people began leaving their farms and small villages in search of food. When warehouses began running low on food, rioting broke out all over western Africa requiring the army, whose loyalty was in question, to be called out to restore order. To save lives, thousands of people had to be uprooted and moved to the colonies. CAS accepts 500,000 refugees.
2165 CAS Joins PAU
The Commonwealth of African States takes its place on the Council of State with ten delegates representing CAS takes their seats as parliament open its session. Third Solar War begins; PAU declares itself to be neutral, but places the army on general alert.
2170 - 2183 Border Raids
A series of border raids, beginning in 2170, were first attributed to IFN forces, which had been quietly masking troops along the CAS / PAU borders. By 2179 PAU was having second thoughts about who was causing the raids. The raids were well organized and timed which did not suit the IFN usual methods as raiders. Efforts to find a diplomatic solution were frustrated by the IFN’s refusing to meet with the PAU or any government. Local militias are place on standby; a general alert is issued to all colonial governments.
2183 The Battleship Kinshasa
The Third Solar War had all but run it course when the PAU went before the UN general assembly. The PAU requested a survey ship be sent to the outer rim of PAU space to explore some strange readings PAU ships were reporting. Mc Caffrey and Niven took up station near the Lagos VI system, sweeping distance stars with their long range scanning equipment. When both ships failed to return after a survey mission, in an unsurveyed system, the PAU sent one of its battle groups to investigate. Nearly three months pasted before a lone badly damage destroyer, the Burning Lake, limped into Good Hope II spaceport. Its captain reported the lost of the Niven, the Battleship Kinshasa, the destroyer Thundering Waters and the disappearance of the Mc Caffrey.
2186 Hammer and Claws
The war with the Kra'vak started in the Lagos VI system (CD 45 7228), when a mining colony was attacked.
