The Peninsular War was an armed conflict between the Imperialist States and Mexico against the Tijuana Cartel in the Baja Peninsula. The war was intiated on August 28, 2012, after an agreement between the Imperialist States and Mexico allowed for American soldiers and drones to help bring down the influence of the Tijuana Cartel in that region of Mexico, and help strike fear into the hearts of other cartels in Mexico. The Peninsular War ended on September 4, with the use of the Trinity bomb to destroy the Cartel headquarters.
From 2008 to 2012, crimes related to drugs and other narcotics rose in Southern California. When the gang sweeps occured in across the Imperialist States, Southern California was one of the most targeted regions for the federal government and law enforcement. During the gang sweeps, several drug deals and eight drug runners were captured, with their connections leading to the Tijuana Cartel down in Baja. On August 28, an agreement was signed between the Imperialist States and Mexico, in which American and Mexican forces will launch anti-drug operations into the Baja Peninsula.
