    Brazil's Minister of Defense arrived in Hawaii for talks with His Hawaiian counter part as well as the Prime Minister. It was a serious talk regarding co-operation on a number of projects. Hawaii was assisting the Brazilians on the construction of a capital ship in Brazil as well as the Manufacturing of small arms of Hawaiian design. Relations between the Empire and the Kingdom were quite good. There would be a number of Joint exercises.

    Hawaii had managed to arrive at a trade agreement with Neuva Granada which insured the continued flow of oil. Hawaii was transitioning from coal to oil. The Royal Hawaiian Navy had begun the shift. Now Hawaii was holding talks regarding the American Canal, which it had built in the Central American Republic. The construction had transformed the country from a backward nation state to one that had shown massive improvement - Education, Health, Sanitation, employment, transportation and comunication

    It appeared that an Ultra Nationalist movement in the Central American Republic was creating problems for both the Current Government there and for the Hawaiians. The movement wanted the Canal totally transferred to the Central American Republic and for the Hawaiian Military to withdraw. But under the agreement that was signed the Canal was the property of the Hawaiian Government, who paid to build it. Hawaii shared revenue from the transit of the Canal with the C.A.R. but the Ultra- Nationalist believed it was not enough.

    An Attempted effort to overthrow the elected Government of the Central American Republic resulted in a declaration of Martial Law and the shedding of blood. The Hawaiian Army detachment that provided security for the Canal went on full alert and requested reinforcements.

    The Hawaiian Canal Defense Force at the time of the Crisis consisted of 2 Infantry Battalions and an artillery battalion. Prime Minister Wilcox okayed reinforcements shortly before the election.Upon forming a government Prime Minister Da Gama asked for a review of the need for the forces as he did not want to create any more tensions with the Central American Republic. The Prime Minister had to consult with the Council of Regents which was headed by William Kamehameha. The former Prime Minister was acting for the young King. William tended to maintain a limited role.

    The Ultra Nationalist decided to fight back. They carried out acts of terror. The Army fought back with a bloody result. The Ultra Nationalist tried to damage the Canal but they faced a well trained Hawaiian force of its Army and Marines. Hawaiian Intelligence infiltrated the enemy and crushed the leadership of the Ultra Nationalist in co-operation with the C.A.R.

    The Ultra Nationalist now had decided to wage an insurgency in an effort to overthrow the Government of the Central American Republic. The Government had a 42,000 man army and a 6,000 man Navy. It decided to triple the size of the Army in an effort to contain the insurgency and put out the fire. The Government of the CAR appealed to Hawaii and the United States as well as Jamaica for aide in helping to fight the insurgent and cut off the flow of arms to them.

    The CAR began to call up men for Military service and the Hawaiians were asked to train them. Thus another 42,000 recruits were called up. Several gun battles had taken place between the Insurgents and Government forces. The Army had shown a willingness to do whatever it took to end the was as quick as possible.

    Arriving from the Empire of Brazil was the Imperial Brazilian Marine Pathfinder Brigade, a highly trained unit in Jungle warfare. The Emperor had responded to the call for help from the CAR as well as a request for assistance from the Hawaiian Government.. It was the first deployment of the elite unite outside of Brazil.
