The mass message from Harvey Steffke called out loudly to the micronational world via AOL Instant Messenger. The message said, “Shireroth is under attack! We need bumpers to help save historic threads!” At this point, the bumpers are quickly doing their job, and have saved at least a few pages of the Shireroth General forum’s threads, however, it seems that it may be too little too late to save them all as the attack has apparently been going on for hours.
The attack is the first one since last week’s devastating attack on the Republic of Baracao. It is widely expected that Anarchy 21 will take responsibility for this attack, however, they have yet to do so. Shireroth is now the fifth victim of the terrorist group, the question on every leader’s mind now is if their nation will be the next.
