The Kekish War (often called the War for Greater Kekland or the Kekistani Civil War) was the Kekish front of the Great Meme War, and an internal conflict fought in Greater Kekland from 2015 to 2017 between the Kekistan Armed Forces (backed by /pol/), Kekalonian trade unions, parties, and militias (backed by /leftypol/), and the Normistan Armed Forces (backed by the Mainstream Media). The fighting resulted in the Normies being purged and the region of Greater Kekland being split between two governments, the capitalist Republic of Kekistan and the communist Revolutionary Kekalonia.
The two main anti-normie political boards were /pol/ and /leftypol/, often having high tensions with each other. While /pol/ was a capitalist anti-idpol board, /leftypol/ was a communist anti-idpol board. These two boards were often teetering on the verge of war, only stopping due to their unity against idpol and Normies. However, tensions would peak with the 2016 election and the onset of the Great Meme War, leading the two factions back armies in Greater Kekland to go to war for control of the region.
Onset of the WarEdit
With the start of the Great Meme War, full on war erupted between the two factions, with /pol/ unifying the capitalist militias to form and back the Kekistan Armed Forces, and /leftypol/ backing Kekalonian unions, parties, and militias. The two sides immediately seized control of territory in Greater Kekland, the Kekistanis taking the west and the Kekalonians taking the east. By this time, the Normie Armed Forces moved in from the south and seized the southern area of Greater Kekland. All factions declared war on each other, leading to the beginning of the Kekish War.
Confrontation with the NormiesEdit
The Kekalonians immediately made a move towards the Normie territory, believing that the Normies were easy pickings and they could use the territory to defeat the Kekistanis. However, the normie army proved surprisingly effective, and pushed the Kekalonian forces into the tiny northeast region of Greater Kekland. This left the fighting up to the newly unified Kekistan Armed Forces, who defeated the normies and claimed their territory with ease.
Confrontation with the CommiesEdit
The Kekalonians during this time had developed into an extremely advanced fighting force, having learned by looking at their mistakes and observing Kekistani combat procedure. They would also stockpile arms and plan to seize control of Kekistan during the fighting against the Normies. When the Kekistan Armed Forces began the invasion of Kekalonia, the well trained and armed Kekalonian soldiers overwhelmed Kekistani troops. The Kekistani Armed Forces decided to siege Kekalonia, planning to exhaust Kekalonian resources and force them to surrender. The Kekalonians decided to keep fighting, exhausting both Kekistani and Kekalonian troops.
The Kekish Armistice AgreementEdit
With both armies exhausted and still fighting, diplomats from Republic of Kekistan and Revolutionary Kekalonia formed a solution and drafted the Kekish Armistice Agreement, leading to "a complete cessation of hostilities and of acts of war in the region of Greater Kekland until an agreement can be made." So far, no agreement has been made, and the two governments are still both technically at war, although there has not been any combat between the two for months.
While formal combat between the two governments has stopped, a communist insurgency is ongoing in Republic of Kekistan, with Kekistani anarchist and socialist insurgent groups being allegedly supported and funded by the government of the Revolutionary Kekalonia. In response to this, the Kekistani government has placed a full embargo on Kekalonia and is demanding that allies do the same. Tensions are high between the two governments, and war has nearly broken out several time since the armistice.
