(11 September 2001 – Present Day)
May 3 – U.S. President Bill Clinton, David Rockefeller, Governor George W. Bush, al-Qaeda operative Khalid bin Mahfouz, King Fahd of Saudi Arabia and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak meet in secret. FBI Agent George Davis spies on their conversation, evades the FBI for 48 hours, before being subdued and disappearing without a trace. Subjects of discussion included the planned September 11 and a "newly established" UN/NATO military base on the far side of the moon. Should it be leaked to the public it would cause the downfall of their coup and their empire.
September 11 – A series of multiple coordinated suicide attacks upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C. area occurred when 19 terrorists from the Islamic militant group Al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jets. The hijackers intentionally crashed two planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City; both towers collapsed within two hours. Hijackers also crashed American Airlines Flight 52 into the Empire State Building which was managed to be narrowly saved from the same fate as the North and South World Trade Centers, and American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The death-toll climbed to an estimate 3,000 civilian casualties by the end of the day. On September 12th, George W. Bush, President of the United States, declares a Global War on Terror in cooperation with NATO, the UN, European Union, and Israel, effectively setting forth the first steps toward a Third Global Confrontation. October 7 – The US invades Afghanistan with assistance from NATO, and Israeli forces. Bush signs the PATRIOT act, the former of which granted broader security and surveillance permissions to the Executive branch of Government, formed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
March 20 – The US invades Iraq based on Bush's claims that Iraq possesses WMD's. US government's true motives are to control the oil industry, the same goes for the similarly based invasion nearly a month later. May 16 – Fall of the Ba'ath Party government in Iraq. Unknown Date – The US government's NSA establishes, in secret, a mass, nationwide surveillance program known as PRISM, not to be exposed until 2013 by Edward Snowden. The US government labels him a traitor, and attached to him the accusation of 'aiding the enemy', indicating that by this point the US government considered its people 'the enemy'.
February 2 – In his State of the Union address, Bush attempts to privatize certain assets of the Social Security program, but fails when public approval dwindles, arriving dead in the water for the remainder of his term. However, in the Senate, he narrowly succeeds in its privatization by 2 votes. August 11 – Demand increase in oil results in an all-time high of $60 a barrel. This is due to lack of control over the central banks and the Federal Reserve in their management interest rates, thus allowing oil prices to get out of control, and the depreciation of the US dollar due to inflation, which will continue to occur as long as the US dollar is a fiat currency backed by nothing. November – Civilian distrust in the government sector climbs to a record high in the UK in over the past 4 decades after the BBC, at the behest of its former Director General, Alastair Milne, and his associates, exposes questionable ties between its top staff, and the US Carlyle group which helped supply much of the equipment to allied nations during the Iraq War. Throughout the month and into the next, the BBC exposes many more hidden stories from the people of the UK, Great Britain, Wales and Northern Ireland alike, by the BBC, after retiring its scandalous staff. The result is shock and many votes-of-no-confidence in the UK government, which continues to expand and accelerate across Europe and toward the disastrous Eurozone collapse several years later – being one of two major causes of the powder-keg of austerity (and Europe is the last place on Earth to play with such social dynamite, as is discovered over another decade thereafter).
April 15 – Due to the precedent set by privatization of Social Security the Republican-controlled congress, facing fears of a Democratic victory in November, pass greater deregulations toward the housing and financial sectors. November 5 - Saddam Hussein is executed.
May 9 – Amidst fears of a looming financial crisis and facing an angry American public, President Bush unlawfully grants himself new powers by stripping states and their senators of power and signing into law a Presidential Directive, known as National Security and Homeland Security Directive 51, wherein all power of the Judiciary, Legislature, as well as the House and Senate, resided with the President, transforming the United States into a fiat dictatorship. December - US enters longest post-WWII recession, which is only a shadow of what is to result from Bush's draconian privatization of Social Security.
August – Russia invades Georgia. The War lasts for just under a week, and ends with Russia annexing parts of neighboring Georgia. It is the first European War of the 20th century. September – The financial crisis becomes more serious after the government takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, followed by the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and a Bush Administration federal bailout of American International Group, Inc. for $85 million. Just a few weeks prior to this the US stock market saw its largest drop in history. With the collapse of major firms Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the Dow Jones is at its lowest in decades at 8,219, by September 11. November – Over 500,000 jobs were lost, and confirmed to be at over 2.6 million by year's end, the largest loss of jobs in the US in the past 34 years. Reports come in en masse as millions of Americans report that their health care claims, and social security benefits, have been denied by the private insurers. President Bush's popularity falls to as low as 8%, and calls for impeachment are higher than ever before. Barack Obama announces a change in his healthcare policy, promising that he will push for the passage of Single Payer, universal healthcare for all. Following the collapse of the financial sector, the private insurance sector of the US economy soon follows and over 150 million Americans are without healthcare or social security. Barack Obama is elected the 44th President of the United States of America in a landslide election. December – President Bush becomes the first President in modern history to be denied the right to attend the inaugural address for his various calls for impeachment. A tent city begins in Central Park, Manhattan. Residents call it "Bushville". The market plummets even further as the revenues from the Christmas shopping season are the lowest in decades.
January – Former senator, and Democratic Party Nominee, Barack Obama, becomes the first African-American and minority President of the United States. Democrats gain a supermajority in the House and Senate, and even their fellow Socialist and Green Parties are present. On January 24th Obama signs the American Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Plan into law which costs more than $1 trillion. The plan includes huge tax increases on people making more than $250,000 per year and spends hundreds of billions on infrastructure. March – Due to the acute extremity of the United States financial crisis, at this point being referred as the "Second Depression", the formerly known Euro Crisis is now being taken into heavy consideration yielding to the fact that the independent EU nations, due to the devastating impact the Second Great Depression has delivered unto the global economy, may no longer be able to stand on independent economies. The plummeting borrowing power caused by the dollar and currently causing the Euro Crisis gives birth to a lot of American resentment, blaming the US Government's "ruthlessly fascist imperialism" over the past decade as the cause of it all. September – China begins pressuring the US to pay back their loans to the PRC. NASA loses most of its funding, and only has a few billion dedicated to satellite maintenance. December – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – through Obama – increases US troop presence in Afghanistan by 30,000. The Egyptian people peacefully overthrow the reign of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Two years later, a new dictator assumes power, Muhammed Morsi, who is subsequently overthrown by a Military Junta.
February – After Libyan dictator 'King of Kings' Muammar Gaddafi takes questionable measures to repress the 'Arab Spring' in his country, the nation erupts in civil war, supported by NATO military intervention rebels, primarily Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah associates, launch counterattacks against the regime. March 15 – Conflict begins in Syria between forces loyal to the Syrian Ba'ath Party Government and those seeking to oust it, with popular demonstrations that grew nationwide by April. Conspiracy theorists and realists alike suspect that it is possible Al-Assad was propped up by western influence to spark a middle-eastern anti-western force in the Middle-East, to justify further American intervention into the region. July – Obama begins plans for a 'Domestic National Security' force to be headed by the Department of Homeland Security, increasing Government Surveillance Policy, and the extent of the PATRIOT Act. September 17 – Angry American citizens march on Wall Street in a movement known as 'Occupy Wall Street', inspired by internet hack-tivist group 'Anonymous'. October – Protests spread to over 70 other US cities by the 9th of the month, marking the greatest public demonstration since 1966. This is due mainly in part to the diminishing US foreign relations, the Depression, and American imperialism. People are fed-up with the US government running their lives, and are determined to deliver the power back into the hands of the people. Later in the month Libyan rebels overthrow Gaddafi’s regime, and establish the “National Transitional Council”.
Various Dates – The PRISM program under Bush sees widespread mass-surveillance and the dawning of a police state in embryonic form. This inadvertently results NSA Contractor Edward Snowden leaking files incriminating the US Government in mass-surveillance scandals involving the NSA's PRISM program. In the data leaked, foreign governments, mainly the EU, and mainly supposed 'allies' of the US government, were having their phone calls, their emails, and their personal privacy violated and spied on by the NSA.
Various Dates – Russian-backed separatists seize the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea and initiate breakaway illegitimate governments in the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, resulting in a War in Donbass after Ukrainians peacefully overthrow the Russian-friendly government of Viktor Yanukovych. Fall 2015 – Due to the fallout of the Syrian Civil War, record numbers of refugees flood into Europe from the Middle-East. Extremist anti-immigration parties climb the polls all across the continent, particularly in southern Europe, where the continent is hit hardest. Spring 2016 – The US Presidential elections see big money maintain influence in American politics, which spark protests in dozens of cities, with the largest in Washington-DC. Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is routed by Wall Street candidate Hillary Clinton, who seeks to reclaim the Oval Office, surround herself with an impenetrable fortress protecting her from her ‘enemies’ and continue her hawkish foreign policy – the opposite of what Sanders intends to do. Throughout the primary season the two frontrunners solidify their leads into the general election season. The Republicans nominate billionaire businessman Donald Trump, who rapidly becomes a media sensation due to his off-the-cuff remarks about illegal immigrants, banning Muslim immigrants, building a Wall on the Mexican–American border, and initiating sweeping mass-surveillance, as well as his disturbingly cozy relationships with both of the Clintons, the mafia, dictators abroad (such as Russian President Vladimir Putin) and his status as a Democrat not even a month before deciding to run for the GOP Nomination. The Republican nominee helps boost Hillary’s poll numbers. Trump had reportedly received a phone call from ex-President Bill Clinton a week before announcing his bid from the Presidency. On into the summer and beyond, Trump continues to (seemingly) purposefully sabotage his own campaign. His pro-Democrat donations come up. His donations to the Clinton Foundation come up. His ties to the mob. His ponzi schemes. His crookery. His scams. His lies. Trump receives a record amount of free media coverage, all the while – conveniently enough – the Clinton Scandals are for-the-most-part ignored or marginalized. But, what she isn’t helped by is her health, her connection to the Iraq War, and – most damning of all – her close friendship with former-President George W. Bush. Although she wins the primaries against Bernie Sanders, and goes on to win the general election in November against Donald Trump, her Presidency collapses all around her.
It becomes apparent that the 2016 election became the most blatant, in-your-face example of the elite buying American elections. Trump had successfully planted his $ billions-worth team of supremacist, military-imperialist politicians in the White House. President Hillary R. Clinton enacts sweeping pro-fracking, pro-corporate, pro-military, pro-prison and pro-war policy, all the while giving the biggest tax breaks to the wealthy in American History. More information comes out surrounding the Monica Lewinsky (and other extramarital) issues – including other victims of sexual harassment by a President Bill Clinton gone rampant with abuse of power. Hillary Clinton is revealed to be one of his several-dozen victims, and Bill had blackmailed her with this information that he’d kept secret for decades. It is revealed to have been blackmail within blackmail – he blackmailed her with sex in exchange for marriage into the Clinton Dynasty, and thus, power. He used this to bribe her into sex, and helping to cover up Bill’s countless victims of sexual assault (not to mention his close ties to scumbag, con-artist and egomaniac Donald Trump). He then continued to blackmail her with these blackmails, even after his impeachment and her 2000 Senate Campaign – that she would strictly follow and carry out the Neocon War policies promoted by him and George W. Bush, and the Republicans. Bill Clinton would continue to enforce his will upon her, even after leaving the White House, into running for and becoming President (with help from Trump – who’d love to see his henchman back in the Oval as First-Man). For another 8 years, Hillary continues Bush’s foreign policy, tearing apart the Middle-East and continuing to slip into insanity. She had become almost completely subservient to her Husband’s will, and had become unhinged from reality – ultimately believing that she was doing the right thing. She goes from utilizing the Presidency – in an act of paranoia bordering on hysteria – to protect herself from her Husband, to utilizing it as a weapon to further and increase her own power. The middle-class continues to implode, and by the time the 2020 elections roll around, Clinton – the Whore of Wall Street – had been adequately all used up by Trump and his cronies on Wall Street, and Trump had returned with a vengeance, and more powerful than ever. Coincidentally, so had the Bernie Sanders Revolution’s second-in-command – Tulsi Gabbard.

Donald Trump wins the 2024 election by default after President-elect Tom Rains is assassinated, And the US government is shut down by Interpol and the ICC for investigation.
"Years Later" Circa 2019-2024 – The successor to al-Qaeda incorporating Hezbollah and Hamas militants – Arabic Order of Caliphates (or simply Aoc) – take over most regions of the Arab World and the Maghreb. The continued presence of the IS-like Jihadists in the region facilitates the growing view around the world of the Middle-East and Maghreb regions as frozen conflict zones much like the Korean Peninsula, as well as continued US presence in the region. Many attempts are made to limit US presence via UN-mandated EUFOR and Europol alongside UN Peacekeepers and Volunteers. The size and strength of Eurocorp, EUFOR, Europol and the UN Peacekeepers and employees expand overall throughout the next two years, and as a result the United States Armed Forces are able to more aptly focus their attention elsewhere. This causes an abrupt freeze in relations between Brussels and Washington, with President Clinton reiterating her support of an ‘exceptionality clause’ regarding the U.S. Military’s ‘freedom-of-movement’ with regard to international crises. Although tensions remain high between the U.S. and the EU for the foreseeable future (at least to the end of President Clinton’s tenure as POTUS), they don’t escalate beyond threats of mutual sanctions, and remain stagnant – hindering Western military cooperation and enabling Russia. In addition, the federal deficit of the United States reaching such great levels forces the U.S. to sell the USS Kitty Hawk, the USS Midway and the most powerful naval warfare vessels on Earth – the only 2 completed Montana-class dreadnought battleships, the USS Montana and USS Ohio – to its closest ally, the United Kingdom. In response, the Spanish government demands collateral for the debt owed to it by France and Brexit. A period of tensions – involving riots, congressional filibusters, and even border skirmishes – lasts for 3 months before Paris finally capitulates and gives up the French Navy’s flagship, the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, the only non-American nuclear-powered supercarrier on Earth, which would now fall under Spanish jurisdiction. The ship is controversially renamed… Francisco Franco. Not long after, London – too – capitulates, able to buy time due to not being part of the EU (unlike France). Eventually, Spain makes the demand for one of the 2 battleships. Now in possession of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and one of the last 2 dreadnought battleships on Earth, the Spaniards now fielded a Navy and military force to be reckoned with, notwithstanding work had begun in secret on another three Juan Carlos I-class aircraft carriers. Once completed, the Queen and Navy of Spain would be in possession of not one, not two, not even three aircraft carriers – but five aircraft carriers – with one being a supercarrier. And the new fleet flagship just so happened to be one of only two dreadnoughts on the planet. With extremism on the rise within the Spanish political elite, and the ultra-militarization of the Spanish Navy, the EU core states – led by France – begin to point the finger at President Clinton’s warmongering and “seeming disconnect from reality” as being the primary culprit for the return to Europe of extremist war states, tensions, political and civil unrest, and the growing lack of respect for the European Union as a political entity – but most of all (not withstanding opening the case for serious consideration of American imperialism) – for the resurgence of Russia.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard narrowly loses to Pres. H. Clinton in 2020.
President Hillary Clinton decides to run for reelection in 2020 against Republican contenders Rand Paul, Neil Bush, several others, and Donald J. Trump (against the advice of her Husband). Trump and Bush essentially steal the election, and at the last second Trump exposes Bush’s association with the Clinton Foundation, and Bush’s poll numbers plummet as Trump goes on to win the remaining contests by landslide margins. Bush drops out before California’s primary. Meanwhile, President Clinton faces a new, invigorated and young face that has taken up the mantle of Revolutionary from Senator Bernie Sanders – protégé Congresswoman Tulsi T. Gabbard. As expected, the Clinton Machine rigs the primaries against Gabbard, who – very much unlike Sanders before her – refuses to endorse and concede.
Clinton, however, defeats 2nd-time GOP Nominee Donald J. Trump by landslide victories in all states but New York, Texas, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, and is reelected. Many, much to the satisfaction of Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, suspect Hillary to be behind her so-called ‘vast Right-Wing Conspiracy’, and in fact at the center of it all. The next 4 years spell disaster for the Democrats and Republicans both, and a resurgence of the Green Party invigorates a movement to elect an honest person to the Presidency (the latter of which the Clintons were not happy about). Unfortunately, Trump was back, and this time as a Democrat.
The Democrats had become wildly unpopular, and were desperate for a strong candidate that knew how to work a crowd.
That candidate turned out to be Donald Trump. Tulsi Gabbard’s challenge to Hillary had angered many Democrats against her, and she narrowly loses the nomination to Trump. Once again, she does not concede.
Coming out of the wood-work, a Dark Horse Candidate emerges, retired-General and CIA agent Tom Rains – who had been a silent critic of President Bill Clinton in the 90’s. Rains seizes upon the Green Party from a platform of Progression, Human Rights, and Freedom. He calls on Gabbard to join him on the ticket, and the Rains-Gabbard/Tom-Tulsi ticket sweeps the general, utterly destroying Democratic nominee Donald Trump, and Senator Tulsi T. Gabbard becomes the first female, and first Hindu VP-elect in American History. The “Tom-Tulsi 2024” ticket is the first since Eisenhower-Nixon to include two veterans running for the offices of President and VP. On January 20th, 2024, President-elect Tom Rains and his supporters’ hopes and dreams are shattered when he is assassinated by a pen explosive triggered by a specific sequence of strokes generated by the general’s signature on his first bill aimed at sanctioning Saudi and American firms for their association with the terrorist hijackers behind the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center. A radical sect of Aoc based out of the Arabian Peninsula takes responsibility, but a DOJ investigation launched immediately finds that elements within the Democrat Party – perhaps even an individual within the administration itself – may have been cooperating with the terrorists. The DOJ reports to the ICC, and the White House and Congress fall under a joint ICC-Interpol investigation, wherein the conclusion is unanimous – within the Security Council (including the U.S.) that the individual to temporarily hold the office (until the investigation could conclude) would be one unaffiliated with the current government – 2020 and 2024 presidential runner-up Donald J. Trump. As Trump steps up to become the 47th President, for at least for the few months it would take to allow the Federal Government to continue functioning in a normal manner, he immediately seizes absolute power.
Tulsi and her supporters, having lost the 2020 election to election fraud, and Bernie in 2016, were utterly defiant and infuriated at having their candidate – whom they refuse to recognize as anything else other than President Tulsi T. Gabbard – robbed of an election and a victory that is rightfully hers, and begin moves to erect an impenetrable resistance effort that would last for many years – and even decades – into the future. Having a face for the movement – which eventually grows beyond America to many nations, and becomes known as the Independence Front – one with the charisma, wisdom and leadership of a President, not to mention combined with a convincing argument that she is the rightful President of the United States of America (one of the best – if not the best – arguments and fact-based claims a politician could have in the realm of geopolitics, especially when your political opponent is the infamous Billionaire Democrat Donald J. Trump – who is now a contested President with one of the most radical domestic policies – if not the most radical domestic policy – in American History) helps cement the Independence Front and future-President Tulsi T. Gabbard into the chronicles of American History.
(Image: Sen. Bernie Sanders campaigns for Tulsi Gabbard in 2020 – the latter admitting she still “Feels the Bern”.)
Preeminent, President and Chairman of the Washington Democracy of Columbia is the new executive position that Donald Trump creates, essentially for himself. Under the guise of a “failsafe” – should the “New World Order” as he calls it attempt to ‘illegally’ wrest the power of the Presidency from his hands – Trump invokes George W. Bush’s “Presidential Directive 51” and the PATRIOT Act to justify his unification of legislative and judicial powers with the Executive Branch. To further ‘legitimize’ his cause, he even lays out the territory that would be controlled by his newly-empowered Presidency should the cause for it come into fruition – a ‘non-aligned states zone’ encompassing Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Long Island; and in the event that civil unrest hit a breaking point, the entirety of the Northeastern Megaregion could be ‘shut down’ by Department of Homeland Security, the Intelligence Community, NYPD, and various other paramilitary organizations.
Trump cites ‘absolutely important preservation of Democracy’ as the precedent for such an action. He immediately begins plans for such a move. Trump’s Takeover immediately hurls the government into further chaos. The Capitol is closed to meetings, making it impossible for Washington to legislate. The White House enacts sanctions on Mexico. A heavily-weaponised wall begins construction on the U.S.–Mexico border. And the U.S. suspends its NATO membership as President Trump begins a nationwide crackdown on dissent and Muslim populations. Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from NATO brings attention to his worryingly close relationship to Russian President Vladimir V. Putin, as well as Putin’s allies within the European Union. Norway and Denmark thereafter hold referendums which sweep Scandinavia in the opposite direction of the European Union. Denmark and Norway then begin a process of rapid and dizzying levels of pro-NATO militarization, and as a result, the EU, too, begins a process of militarization.
All across Europe, war drills are ran in preparation for a potential U.S.–Russian attack on NATO Europe – the Trump-Putin alliance representing the most threatening adversary since Nazi Germany. The growing threat from Putin’s Russia and Trump’s Democracy prompts a union in Westminster led by Mayor Edmund, Lord Roman of Edinburgh – head of the House of Lords – with support from Ireland’s Fianna Fail to press Britain to relocate 50% of its Air Force, which by this point stood at 1,621 aircraft (1,037 planes, 584 helicopters), granting Scotland over 810 aircraft (518 planes and 292 helicopters) total. Scotland also gets 50% of the UK’s Tanks (113) plus 162 of the 325 light tanks of the UK (Total: 276), Armored Fighting Vehicles (3,063), SPG’s (89), Towed Artillery (82), Rocket Projectors (25), as well as 42 surface vessels including the Queen Elizabeth-class supercarriers and Battleship Strongbow (with another 12 advanced corvettes under-construction), north to UK bases in Scotland at Military Bases Lossiemouth, Faslane and Clyde and the entirety of the British reserve forces are brought online, bringing the total number of active military forces in the United Kingdom to 240,050 soldiers – including Scottish forces based overseas in Canada who express solidarity in the mutual defense of Scotland from Russian forces – and of that a total of 27,680 soldiers pledge allegiance to Scotland and Great Britain (along with a willing-and-able fit manpower of nearly a million), marking a revival in Scottish Ultranationalism a decade after a Scottish vote for Independence shook the foundations of Great Britain. The presence of a militarily-stable Scotland in possession of such a formidable military force – including the Scottish-run Vanguard-class submarines part of the Trident nuclear programme – elicits fear and paranoia amongst many elite circles in Westminster and the Greater London area at the thought of Scotland attempting to assert their independence from Britain by force – which at this point they were very-well able to do so. Chinese dissidents protesting against the People’s Liberation Army island-building and micromanagement of trade across the South China Sea wage a campaign of guerrilla warfare against the PLA for several years. For over a month protests spread across China, totaling up to roughly 29 million nationwide, the largest antigovernment demonstration in Human history, decrying Communism and branding the ruling totalitarian Communist Party the “Beast of the East”, and the sole source of government cruelty in the nation. The Communists pummel the protesters ruthlessly, relentlessly, and mercilessly using unrestrained tactics involving artillery, armed riot police, and heavy armor such as tanks. A few months later the White House and European Commission respond with condemnation of the Communist state’s actions. Russia and member-states of the Shanghai Cooperative defend China’s actions, equating the uprising to ‘no more than an extremist movement of antigovernment terrorists’ threatening innocent and civilian lives alike, even though the evidence points towards the opposite. No-fly zones and sanctions are delivered upon the Communist state by the EU and US, but despite this China’s economy continues to grow and expand. Circa 2025-2027 – In an attempt to allay fears among the Scottish public that Belfast no longer represents the United Kingdom, Downing St. cooperates with various elements of Belfast and the military/industrial foundation of contractor corporations that reside in Glasgow, to grant Northern Ireland greater autonomy from the United Kingdom, the initiative spearheaded by a notable friend and close-ally of Russian President Putin and the Ukrainian Tymoshenko Dynasty, former-Mayor of Edinburgh, Lord Roman himself – who had recently become Minister of North Ireland. Tension begins to brew amongst the Northern and Southern Irish populations, but ultimately Belfast and Dublin agree, with the multinational incorporated big businesses and mass-surveillance intelligence community being relocated to Belfast. Little does Britain realize, but this was a ploy by Scottish extremists in an unexpected alliance with Neo-Republican Irish elements in the Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein parties to allocate crucial assets into Scots-Irish hands. Whether or not Russia was aware of this remains unclear (but it likely was, considering the move was kick-started by Putin ally Lord Roman). In response, the British mainland begins to see political turmoil. Scotland, the second-largest country in the United Kingdom after England, sees Scottish Ultranationalists seize power and begin steering the region into a frozen proxy conflict with U.K. forces. This also causes a strain in relations with Ireland and Britain, the former currently dominated by Irish nationalists supported by IRA sympathizers. Not but a few weeks later a newly-reorganized and sophisticated IRA militant front begins terrorist actions against Britain similar to that of their Muslim counterparts in the Middle-East. This begins a process of Irish reunification and an importation of radical extremist fighters to Ireland. The formerly-United Kingdom had effectively become the new Yugoslavia. These developments prompt the formation of a military alliance to spearhead NATO coordination – the G-Six. The G-Six (or G6) is a summit of military leaders that is to be convened annually at the Pentagon, consisting of the commanders-in-chief of India, China, EU, UK, Australia and – of course – the Pentagon. This, however, forms a rift between the United Nations and the Pentagon–Trump Administration power axis. Whereas the G-Six is a military alliance designed specifically with regard to warfare, the UN was the antithesis to everything the G-Six represented.
The costly foreign policy of President H. Clinton’s 2nd Term “H Doctrine” with regards to contesting the UN peacekeepers… And the smearing of the EU is directly blamed by the international community… …For the Rains Assassination and the subsequent Trump Takeover.
October 7, Unknown Year – Certain elements within the Department of Defense, lying just outside of the jurisdiction of the Joint Chiefs of Staff through cleverly navigated loopholes, go public with the DOD's answer to overreaching government control under President Trump: the Omega Response and their paramilitary arm – Response Coalition Network – “RECON”. Initially an international intelligence, paramilitary and espionage organization founded in October of 1774, RECON stumbled upon a secret interlocking deep-state of invisible borders – existing between ultra-wealthy from the financial, military, and political sectors – that essentially implicated the three nations of the triangular power structure of the Cold War era (China, the USSR, and America) in an undeniable scandal in which all 3 participated in financial lobbying between these power brokers across the world (primarily in the West) overseen by the CIA and NATO. During the opening months of 1975, RECON narrowly saved the United States from being destroyed by Soviet nukes (thanks to the assistance of the UK government). Between 1963 and 1975, RECON was a disavowed unit of the Pentagon after unearthing this conspiracy. However, after saving the US from extinction a dozen years after their disavowal, the Pentagon decided it was only proper to reestablish RECON a military and managerial heavyweight in the sector, with special powers that could challenge the Intelligence Community and/or the Joint Chiefs of Staff should they accumulate too many that made it impossible for the Legislative branch and Congress to adequately challenge them. The Pentagon and Congress are contacted by UN Human Rights and Operations Officers and a Europol team regarding their eyewitness accounts of a conspiracy being carried out – in conjunction with China – under NATO nations and the United States under President Trump and the Joint-Chiefs (the latter of which was beginning to resemble a Junta), and that the upper echelons of the organization had been infiltrated by Interpol (which in turn had been infiltrated by the Russians via Interpol since the 1960’s) in an attempt by China to break the EU and hijack NATO’s disillusionment with US President Trump and utilize the Alliance against the UN. On October 11 the RECON Ambassador to the Capitol proposes that the US Government investigate NATO and the G-Six military summit, postulating that the CIA and – to a lesser-extent, the IC had infiltrated the bloc and were backed by the Communist Party of China against the UN. The proposition goes through Parliament but is vetoed by the President. This sparks a petition in the US to petition the UN to intervene in the US government, before NATO invades, which begins to split the armed forces down the middle, leading to many defecting to such paramilitary organizations like the NYPD, and DHS – both directly controlled by the IC. This, however, aids RECON in their efforts to push out the current Trump-loyal Joint-Chiefs, and eventually they succeed. Realizing that they will have to work with the UN, RECON leads a diplomatic mission to the UN General Assembly concerning the complaints of UN officers in question to the Pentagon. Throughout the next several years, the UN Secretariat begins a counter-movement to the Chinese-led initiative to ‘ostensibly dominate’ smaller sovereign nations. This eventually leads to a crisis which results in the United States seat on the Council being contested, after the Pentagon, Congress, and a record-number of the American Populace protest President Trump. In response, Russia is replaced by India. And the UN headquarters in New York City become a forefront issue.
U.S. Presidential Candidate (legitimate 46th President) – and Independence Front head – Tulsi T. Gabbard, puts her full support behind India’s accession to the UN Permanent Security Council
India also has clout not only as a Security Council candidate, but also being the UK’s most powerful ally in the ‘Commonwealth of Nations’. India’s first test as a P5 Security Councilor – ironically enough – comes as Pakistan claims the Vakhan Corridor for its own. It claims the little-used corridor of Afghanistan – a notable US and UK ally – would be of more strategic importance to Pakistan in coordinating with its CSTO allies in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, all of whom share borders with one another, unlike Pakistan. India successfully leads a motion to ban Pakistan from the UN Security Council until Pakistani soldiers depart the Wakhan Corridor. Pakistan refuses – thereafter leaving the UN completely and beginning a trend among Muslim countries – leading a mass-disobedience of the UN among all Muslim nations, including Turkey, to protest the UN allowing the Sarkozy dynasty’s Nationalist France access. Pakistan succeeds in rallying the Arab World against the UN, invigorating its more powerful allies in Egypt, and creating a unifying shout to all of Islam to stand together against the UN. China supports Pakistan in protests by leading a petition of nations for France to resign due to being aligned with the Trump regime, which it also accuses of inflaming tensions between NATO and Russia. As a result, a UN referendum passes that precludes all NATO-nations from being qualified to sit on the UN Security Council. The UN building remains in New York City, but not long after the Security Council successfully negotiates a secession of New York City from the United States. Later that year, the “Democracy Order of America (D.O.)” – or simply the “Democracy” – officially becomes the largest city-state in the world (with a population of nearly 50 million including all surrounding urban areas). But the D.O. still shares an economy and financial hub with the United States of America. Not long after this, the Democrat government successfully campaigns to create a Joint-Task-Force Office (JTFO) consisting of representatives from the UN and NATO. The NATO Secretary-General also wins support for presiding over these conventions, acting as the prime mediator between the two international institutions. Through the JTFO, the Democrats gain many one-ups on the U.S. over the conflict against Islamists in the Arabian Peninsula, Algeria and the Maghreb.
"About a Decade Later" January – About a decade later (about 10 years after the Crimean Crisis) the Ukraine erupts in civil war between anti-EU protesters and an internationalist government. The uprising is crushed rapidly by military intervention over the course of a period of a little over 9 days. Britain and the United States vouch for the government taking appropriate action against the rioters. This inflames tensions between the British government and Scotland. RECON begins preparations for a government crackdown, and if necessary, a civil war in Britain. They explicitly state that the UK-run England’s policies do not equal that of Scotland’s, and publically condemn the actions of the Ukrainian government. Later in the month the government in Kiev is toppled by an organized march from all of Ukraine after Kiev forces forcefully end an anti-Nationalist demonstration in Kiev, the result is a 7-month long revolution that establishes anti-immigration leaders with a strong pro-Russian government with dictatorial powers alongside a strong ultra-nationalist platform. RECON points out that this was the fault of NATO for inflaming tensions between Russia and the West, and further goes into the root causes of the Ukrainian Civil War – that the Alliance went about ousting Yanukovych in the incorrect way, which in turn caused the current polarization between NATO and Russia, threatening humanity with a Third Global Confrontation. Throughout the rest of the year the new Ukrainian government solidifies power, far surpassing the government concentralization of the Yanukovych regime, until even the dictatorial Lukashenka regime in neighboring Belarus begins to turn toward NATO. The Belarusian-Ukrainian tensions eventually culminate in a pro-Ukrainian coup-de-tat that results in Ukraine effectively Balkanizing and – around the same time a year later – annexing the neighboring Eastern European country of Belarus. Next month, Belarus is declared ‘North Ukraine’ by the new President – Ivan Grigori Volt – and the two states effectively become one. The new Voltist–Ukrainian superstate declares that all neighboring states harboring a significant Ukrainian population must concede their economies to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv or face militant annexation. February – Moldova concedes to its superstate neighbor, who – with an army surpassing 3 million soldiers (more than the entire population of Moldova itself), an air force of 451 craft, 149 helicopters, 55 attack helicopters, 171 attack aircraft, 76 fighters, 4,507 tanks, 10,548 armored fighting vehicles, 1,885 self-propelled guns, nearly 2,000 artillery pieces, and nearly 1,000 multiple-launch rocket systems – at this point, the only nation capable of waging protracted ground warfare against Ukraine – Russia – remained mysteriously silent as Ukraine went about overshadowing the Russian scares during the Crimean crises, more than likely to absolve itself of its geopolitical status as regional pariah. More and more Eastern Europe became just as furious at Russia as they were terrified of the Ukrainian war state. At 845,104 square kilometers (including Moldova), Ukraine far surpassed Turkey in terms of landmass it controlled, and at the same time surpassed Italy in population to become the 7th most-populous nation in Europe succeeded only by the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, Germany and Russia. A mass exodus unfolds over the course of the previous year of Ukrainians after they are thrown out of the countries of Slovakia, Czech, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Latvia, France, Italy and Germany after various Voltist-ultranationalist terror attacks unfold there. This breeds a sense of patriotism in non-aligned Ukrainians in various other countries – Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Uzbekistan, Kazakstan and even the United States – prompting a second wave of migration to greater Ukraine by Ukrainians. By this point, the population of Ukraine had swollen to over 60 million, and it would continue to rise. By a year after that, Russians as well had become affected by the new ‘Kievan Rus’ nation, with the 4 million-odd Russian population in Kazakhstan, 3.5 million in Germany, 3.1 million in the United States, 2.4 million in Israel and Uzbekistan, the population of Ukraine had risen to 71,909,229 by the start of the British Revolution – surpassing the aforementioned nation (the UK was the 5th most populous), as well as France (the 4th most-populous), to become the 3rd most-populous nation on the continent, with the 16th most-powerful military, and the 5th most-powerful ground force on Earth. After Britain and Germany are torn asunder by internal strife, civil unrest, and war in the subsequent years, Ukraine becomes #3 military power on the continent, behind only France and Spain. The heavy militarization of Ukraine by the West the previous decade produces a Ukrainian superstate with a powerhouse of a military poised to wage protracted warfare against its much smaller neighbors to the West. Russia’s position on the “Great Ukraine” remains ambiguous, at least for now. June – After the Belfast government takes questionable violent acts against militia participating in the neutralization of a terrorist threat via a military response from Ireland, alternative media organizations, activist organizations, and people's alliances unite to mold a new generation. Alongside mainstream media programming and newspapers, the truthpapers are established, backed by the BBC and Democracy Now, pointing out flaws in the established system of selected individuals for the jobs of Prime Minister of the UK and Presidents of the United States of America and France. The major point was; if one were to look past the smaller things like Gay Marriage and Abortion one would see that all political, military, and foreign policy goals were all virtually the same regardless of political affiliation. The bandwagon expands from nearly 500,000 supporters in July to over 17 million people across 12 countries by the latter part of the subsequent year. It is also in the midst of this month that the Left Resistance against the incumbent German government that causes its resignation seizes power in Germany, along with subsequent exchanges of power in other nations throughout the month and the next; the most ardently anti-NATO and anti-EU being the Kremlin-backed British “Centurions” led by the rising influence of Ulster Prime Ministerial frontrunner Edmund Roman's separatist views gaining popularity in the Commons, which continue to more and more support N. Irish independence from the United Kingdom. RECON finds incontrovertible evidence the rising influence of Russian, American, French and Ukrainian oligarchs are responsible, notwithstanding Russian operatives undercover in said governments of Norway, Austria, Serbia, Democracy, Northern Ireland (Edmund Roman was a personal aide to Putin during the Crimean crisis and long-time friend of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush), Poland, the Netherlands, France, Belgium and Romania. The really extremist governments don’t take power until the following year – in Spain and Denmark.
The rise of Fascism in America paralyzes Europe (pictured: Flag of President Donald Trump’s “Democracy”, c. 2029).
October – The Ulster government begins to take extensively questionable, overreaching and unconstitutional methods that include spying on and politically targeting what came to be called, by the end of the year, the Independence Front. This only increased the rate at which the “IF” was gaining new supporters threefold, all according to RECON'S master plan. The injustice unfolding in Europe contributes to this accelerated Ulster disillusionment with the new Republican-run Dublin government. The UK continues their sanctions war against Russia, completely neglecting to acknowledge the rise of militants in Spain and Ireland, the Sarkozy and Le Pen dynasties seizing control of France once again, the atrocities being committed by the Democrat government in America, and the Spanish Monarchy’s unsettling closeness to IRA militants, and the overt enthusiasm – ostensibly by this time far beyond willingness – to host Russian warships in Ceuta, North Africa, a mere 20 miles from the British–Spanish contested territory of Gibraltar. Naturally, Britain leads the charge that Spain has betrayed NATO. Immediately afterward, Scottish hackers leak a trove of documents detailing the Spanish Army’s arms sales to IRA militants and donations the Spanish ‘Deep State’ intelligence had given to Donald Trump’s 2016, 2020 and 2024 Campaigns via dark money and shadow banking. Three weeks later, a unanimous vote by all NATO members to suspend Spain from the Alliance goes through, with 26 out of 27 members voting forth. France abstains. November – About a week after Westminster declared that they would continue and expand sanctions against Russia, a second Collective Security Treaty is signed in Aktau, Kazakhstan reaffirming the signatories’ commitment to mutual and collective defense. This second declaration, called the Aktau COSECTOR, or Aktau Pact – increasingly referred to as simply ‘the Pact’ by the end of the decade – consisted of Russia, the original signatory nations of the CSTO; including all of the former Soviet Republics excluding Belarus (which had been annexed by Ukraine), and two new additions: Egypt and Spain. By this time, Egypt and Russia – and to an extent, Roman’s Ireland – were seen as the ‘Next Axis Powers’ by the Allied world, including Trump’s Democracy. As Trump’s influence is more and more isolated to the Northeastern megalopolis region – referred to more and more as ‘Democracy’ by loyalist elements within Congress as time goes on – the region that fails to escape the iron fist of President Trump is eventually recognized as the “Democracy of Columbia” or simply “Democracy”, and the city-state thereafter joins Russia and Spain as the official third wheel to the Axis triumvirate. The Democrats, Russians and Spaniards – exposed – do little to try to cover their tracks from here on, knowing full-well that Ireland (which had fallen from the radar due to their publicity) was the indispensible spoiler.
2024 - 2026 August - From April until mid-July the growing global awareness to the massive corruption of the UK Government increases. Afterward, with sweeping support and influence, Roman drafts a merger of the EPP and Progressive Alliance of Socialists & Democrats (S&D) to form the European Socialist Alliance (EUSA), which becomes the dominating political group in the European Parliament with over 432 seats out of 766, forming the largest ruling supermajority of any democratic party in a democratic parliament in history, even rivaling that of the Republican supermajority under George Bush II in 2001, following 9/11. Chancellor Roman of Ireland explains the merger was to challenge the rising political influence of Russia in EU politics via the rising UUP, which sat at roughly 161 seats, and to more adequately assist the EU in their efforts to pull back the Russian incursion into Eastern Europe. He later acknowledges that his ‘Euro Activism’ was designed to challenge the British position as the prime contender against France for the role of heavyweight contributor to the bloc amongst the EU members – insisting that the much larger and more powerful Ireland of the 2020’s was better suited to the role.
The corruption in London inspires the rise to power of Edmund, Lord Roman of Edinburgh, a Gaelic Ultranationalist
The rest of Europe (excluding Britain, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Bulgaria and Romania) buys into Roman’s propaganda, demonizing the Le Pen dynasty (whom has had many financial ties to) and insisting that further federalization of the EU was the key to defeating them and Putin. Over the course of the next few years, Roman's popularity, and the EUSA, soars, and the British Isles and the EU are seen as the 'light of the world', much like the USA on the cusp of the 19th and 20th centuries for immigrants. This causes a spike in EU immigration, not just from abroad, but from the US as well, mainly due to the growing fears of a civil war. The rampant immigration, however, 100% of that of the USA's immigration at the turn of the previous century, causes many economic and political issues in the rapidly changing EU – including the further radicalization of NATO and Ireland. Soon after, it becomes ostensibly clear to Omega Intel that this is an element of the fallout following Trump’s America departing NATO, with the division in the Capitol deepening into what was beginning to look like Civil War II. November - After struggling for almost a decade to get together an effective organized resistance to the tyrannical administration dominating the Executive Branch of the UK Government, finally elements within MI6, spearheaded by RECON officials, declare a national emergency, affirming the nation’s security at risk to foreign interests. The Polish-dominated NATO responds aggressively, declaring RECON a “rogue military dictatorship” despite the fact they are only doing their jobs, which is the defense of their country. RECON comes under fire from elements within the Pentagon loyal to the NATO hegemony as well as personnel within the Congress, Supreme Court, and – of course – Downing Street.
The situation continues to unravel throughout the rest of the month until it all comes to a head on November 5th, when the first shots of the British Revolution were fired in Glasgow, Scotland.

British forces in Glasgow’s city-centre, c. 2024-26
2024 - 2026 November – After a transitional force of Polish-led NATO peacekeepers begin to police New York in an effort to disrupt an alleged “rogue Pentagon” which they blame for the rise of President Trump – the Pentagon and Defense Department are essentially labeled terrorist organizations, and the Department of Defense institutes a lockdown of Maryland, New Jersey and the New York City metropolitan area – these regions constituting what was known handily by now as Democracy – officially recognized as a rogue-state spearheaded by the Democrat President Donald J. Trump. The basis for the NATO intervention into the United States comes under the allegations that Washington is working for special-interests on Wall Street in Democracy, as opposed to the Will of the People. The evidence of this is incontrovertible, yet RECON comes into information from GCHQ and MI6 that Scots-Irish and Russian forces are seizing upon the NATO-led opportunity to launch plans for a multilateral invasion of both Britain and the United States, and effectively topple the US and UK governments. Although they are seen as corrupt by most of the world, the majority of the world population decries the move as “an unnecessary use of force” that distracts from the fact that the dynasties in America (the Trumps, Clintons and Bushs), France (the Le Pen and Sarkozy dynasties), Ukraine (Tymoshenko and Volt dynasties), Egypt (the Mubaraks), Britain (Roman and Windsor), China (Fang dynasty), Spain’s Royal Family and the House of Saud (Saudi Arabia) were behind the corruption. London declares that they will not stand by and allow Russians and NATO to hijack the British military just because “a separatist British faction (Scotland) says so,” and thus, the United Kingdom is reformed incorporating the constituent countries of England and Wales. Scotland refuses to hand over Britain’s military assets and a COSECTOR military alliance consisting of Egyptian and Russian units is erected to support Scotland and combat London influence – the latter of which ascends as the solitary bulwark against a full-scale invasion of the United States of America, increasingly seen by NATO as critical to unseating President Trump and bringing the US back into NATO. The EU’s allegiance to the Alliance, and the UK’s (at this point) reluctant alliance with the US, prompts a NATO–UK split, despite the evidence pointing to special influence in the Europarliament. NATO declares the CIA the prime culprit of corruption in the U.S. government, and enacts an active campaign against the organization “indefinitely”; to stave off public condemnation whilst simultaneously coming to the aid of the British in their row with Scotland. An attempted NATO intervention into Glasgow, Scotland in an effort to repatriate British military assets from the Scottish is underway as of November 5th, but civilian casualties and asymmetric warfare waged by Irish guerrillas and Russian air strikes forces the campaign to a screeching halt three months later.
2025 - 2027 February – The Glaswegian Campaign, despite a crushing defeat, inspired confidence in the resistance against the Russian forces and the people therein that the fact that most of the UK Military… 200,000 of the men and women in uniform to be approximate… were siding with the people, and inspired confidence that the war could be won, and the island of Britain could be a beacon of light, freedom, and human rights once again, a land of liberty and not tyranny, for the first time in almost 70 years. However, Ireland’s connections to Al-Qaeda were uncanny, as it was them the United States government’s CIA and Westminster’s MI6 organized to fight against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980’s and, allegedly, set up to launch the September 11th attacks. These allegations of the IRA–Al-Qaeda connection in the Irish government come to the attention of the UN Secretary-General, who – along with most of the General Assembly – begins an emergency campaign to isolate and dismantle the rogue state in the Security Council – which many suspected to be China in light of their cordial ties with Russia. Working in communion with global financial assets, Interpol, the Bank of International Settlements, and Saudi Royal Family, the Pact enlists the assistance of many Al-Qaeda-related organizations which harass UK forces throughout the war, and in addition to this, the many Fundamentalist Islamic terrorist organizations convene with foreign, globalist aid to give birth to a new breed of bioterrorism, a government-engineered nanobot-mutagen form of the so-called “zombie fungus”, Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, and Ophiocordyceps sinensis, or the “caterpillar fungus”, both of which they were allegedly working on mutating to conform to a human host since the early 1990s, an alternative media source claims. Thus far they had only gotten the fungus to be able to jump from ants to cattle, deer and elk by 2012, but were making “great gains” in the sector of bioterrorism and biowarfare. Naturally, the governments and the terrorists fought bitterly for control over the species. On the 12th of the month, AOC launched a notable offensive against the British Military in Manchester, when they were successfully repelled by the 14th. They attacked again, with assistance from Egyptian and Russian forces. By March, the EUSA commanded much of the minority seats, controlling an increase of 49 seats, and the Bush–Roman-controlled Interpol and NATO continued to dominate the movement of armed paramilitary forces into Britain. Whilst Bush’s NATO had virtually no reason to put up a substantial effort to repulse the Irish incursion, Roman’s Ireland had already scored major victories against UK forces, and confidence and Irish patriotism was at an all-time high. Although by now most of Ireland had been infiltrated by Russian military forces, dissent did arise from within the ranks of the Interpol forces throughout April and May, even well into June and July when the EU had practically imploded due to the renegade nature of these radical Interpol, primarily controlled by Moscow and Glasgow. October – Pact forces launched a final attempt at an all-out assault on British territory. They are met with firm resistance from Royal Armed Forces and militia movements for the most part, but a fragment of the invading force make it through into Wales where they attempt to set up a forward operating base in the Cambrian foothills, but are quickly pushed back by armed citizens. Most are killed but some are taken as prisoners or escape. By the end of the month, 90% of U.S. troops have been recalled to the US, and another 50% are put on-call should an international crisis break out. Coincidentally, shortly thereafter, NATO holds a meeting at headquarters in Brussels on the rapidly unfolding situation. The NATO Secretary-General proposes declaring the Scottish rebellion a “Non-Aligned States Zone” while maintaining that the United Kingdom has not fragmented and that the current conflict be recognized as no more than an attempted military coup. The move is put forth, and the United Kingdom is “reestablished” and the resistance is “abolished”. Meanwhile, the Chinese government, with support from Russia and North Korea, repulses the Taiwanese invasion. Taiwan surrenders on the agreement they are left alone, and thus, the Second Sino Civil War comes to a halt, just as the British Revolution nears its conclusion as the Scottish government assumes a more diplomatic stance with the Pentagon and Westminster.
Circa 2027 - 2028 April - Headed by a Sinn Fein and IRA junta, ardently pro-Russian and anti-EU/anti-UN forces impose a military dictatorship over Ireland. This works hand-in-hand with NATO’s lust for power, while Ukraine further expands and exerts influence throughout Eastern Europe, it provides the perfect scapegoat to push the illusion of justification for the NATO and Democrat governments’ growing authoritarianism. The IRA-Sinn Fein junta cooperates with Roman, head of the newly-independent Northern Ireland, to combine the states into a “New Ireland”, which causes a domino effect which allows Roman to seize de-facto control of Ireland and with Scottish Nationalism soaring to unprecedented heights the “Realm of Scotland” secedes from the U.K. and is subsequently annexed by the Irish superstate. With only just under 28,000 in their standing army, Scotland jumpstarts a propaganda campaign promoting enlistment in the new anti-British Gaelic Ireland, and expands their numbers by an estimate 32,400 to an estimate total of a 60,080-strong force. Combined with the campaign for an expansion and growth of the Defense Force of Ireland to 72,132 (including the 4 battalions formerly belonging to Britain in Northern Ireland, and the original standing force of 9,500 active and 4,371 reserve soldiers) launched by Ed Roman a year after his formation of the Irish Superstate, the total quantitative strength of the Gaelic Irish Force stood at 132,212, which then expanded to 200,424 after the 68,212-strong pan-Scots/Irish police force is founded into the Gaelic Military Police, from a unification of police across Ireland and Scotland. In addition, the already-powerful 200,000-strong Gaelic Irish Forces possessed British military assets relocated into Scotland several years earlier in response to Russian aggression – 50%; including 861 aircraft (518 planes and 292 helicopters – of which 50 or so come from Ireland itself), 50% of the UK’s Tanks (113) plus 162 of the 325 light tanks of the UK, and 6 Irish light tanks (Total: 283), Armored Fighting Vehicles (3,180), SPG’s (89), Towed Artillery (82), MLR systems (31), as well as 73 surface vessels including the 4 Vanguard-class assault submarines and the 7 Astute-class stealth subs and 14 surface vessels from Ireland, and the UK’s Queen Elizabeth-class supercarriers at Military Bases Lossiemouth, Faslane and Clyde and the Strongbow respectively). Ireland now possessed a military qualitatively equal to that of the United Kingdom of England and Wales (which possessed a standing manpower force of 212,370 roughly 12,000 more than the Gaelic Irish Forces; with 291 tanks (slightly more than Ireland), 3,223 AFV (again, only slightly more than Ireland), 522 planes, 310 helicopters, 831 air powers total, 92 SPG’s, 82 Towed Artillery pieces, 25 MLR systems and 43 surface vessels including the deteriorating HMS Ocean helicopter carrier). Now, the United Kingdom was staring down an equally-powerful adversary whom, for the first time in recent British history, they shared a 100-mile border with. To top things off, the Irish were decidedly aligned with the Russians and Spaniards… and the British had left NATO roughly a year before the Glaswegian Campaign, meaning the United Kingdom – abandoned by a fragmented United States – was almost completely isolated.
On April 2nd, Ireland annexed Scotland (Image: Britain – c. 2028)
Irish territory – c. 5/16/2029
October – Throughout the first half of the year hostilities begin to falter. With the more aggressive, militaristic stance initially taken by Edinburgh and the Pact’s interests relaxed, Westminster opens talks with Scotland about reestablishing a United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Little progress is made – for Taoiseach Ed Roman finally had absolute power over Ireland and nearly a third of Great Britain. Meanwhile, the United States Congress votes to impeach Trump, as the death toll skyrockets from Trump’s air campaign targeting families of suspected terrorists in the Middle-East. The onslaught wrought by President Trump unites the Arab World and Muslim nations abroad in their bitter hatred of the United States and the west. Just as plans intended, Egypt – the foremost military power in the Arab World – leads the Nations of Islam into an alliance with Russia – which secretly supported “Democracy” financially and militarily (although Putin himself was an open and unapologetic ally of Trump). Elections are announced in October of the previous year; with (now-recognized) Vice President Tulsi T. Gabbard and former New Mexico Governor Gary E. Johnson running for President and Vice President respectively. Championing the poor and condemning the interventionism and greed of the elite families – the Trumps and Clintons primarily – the “Gabbard-Johnson 2027” ticket steamrolls Democratic nominee Chelsea Victoria Clinton, and Tulsi T. Gabbard – at long last – becomes President of the United States and immediately launches a DOJ investigation of Donald Trump. Trump does not concede quietly, he maintains his power, and The Democracy recognizes him as President. The détente intensifies and lasts for the remainder of the year. The DOJ, White House, and near-unanimous ruling by the entire U.S. government disqualifies Donald Trump for recognition in the official account of the nation’s history as the 47th President – seeing how the robbing of the 2024 nomination of Vice-President Gabbard as the replacement to President-elect Tom Rains (and the latter’s assassination) was due to elements involved with Trump, and the Trump Takeover of 2024. Finally, on July 7th, an armistice agreement is reached, similar to the one in China half-a-year ago, in which President Gabbard of the US and President Trump of the Democracy meet diplomatically in the direct eye of the public to discuss New York. Trump is given diplomatic immunity. The United Nations Parliamentary Assembly is convened spearheaded by Irish Chancellor Edmund Roman to foster relations with the United States to conduct a joint-task-force against the “Pact” formally signed into effect in Aktau, Kazakhstan consisting of the CSTO countries and support from the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The next two weeks of talks serve only to temporarily ease tensions between the two nations, for it is not soon after this that the EU Commission collapses due to the intense weight of finance thrown behind the US, and the Irish Chancellor, finally free of the woes perpetuated by an encumbering regional integration process, seizes absolute power of the European Bloc and demands the United States cede New York, Virginia, Georgia, and Carolina back to the Queen and pay respect to “Democracy”, Chancellor Roman making the demand himself under “royal decree” (although it is never confirmed the Queen ever made this demand herself). Earlier in the month, Roman had merged the EUSA and UUP into the ruling EUSA-UUP coalition government ruled by the aforementioned political movement, establishing a form of 'fiat-Nazism' as the President calls it, outlawing the minority opposition controlling no more than a hundred seats as opposed to the 665-seat supermajority. Later in the year the Turkish government is overthrown in an Uprising widely believed to be supported in large-part by the Russian, Spanish and Egyptian governments. The Egyptian Shura Council begins disappearing after an internal investigation is launched, and the pro-Russian Turkish government is suspended from NATO shortly after Greece finds evidence of Turkey sparking sectarian strife in Cyprus. A Cypriot Civil War erupts several weeks later, and the Turkish military falls in on itself as a suppression campaign begins to purge the Turkish military and Turkish society of anti-Russian cells. The Revolution continues for many years before the Turkish opposition eventually capitulates and the primarily-Kurdish, pro-Greek military junta seizes absolute power over the tarnished, tortured shell of a country. As the Egyptian establishment continues to disappear Councilors and insurgent governors, Gamal Mubarak – son of former-President and Dictator Hosni Mubarak – thereafter seizes absolute power over the Egyptian government and militarily annexes northeastern Sudan. Ties emerge between the Mubaraks, the Spanish Monarchs and AOC, but by then the power axis had begun a movement commonly referred to as Arab Spring II that thereafter swept the Arab World. From Saudi Arabia to Algeria, from the border of South Sudan to the Mediterranean Seaboard, AOC and pro-Egyptian, pro-Russian factions seized power, and the Saudi Kingdom cemented in this part of history its firm allegiance to Cairo, Moscow and Madrid. Roughly a week later Russia suspends the Ukraine from COSECTOR shortly after NATO enacts sanctions against the ultranationalist regime due to three nuclear weapons “vanishing”, along with a team of nuclear scientists. This is the smallest of the new Ukrainian regime’s infractions, the largest of which included an ostensible occupation of Belarus. It isn’t this particular Ukrainian occupation that is met with condemnation from Russia, but the claim on the Kaliningrad Oblast…which asserts its own territorial claim of the region, and Russian and Ukrainian forces contest over the region. Meanwhile, in wake of the new expansionism of Serbia into Macedonia and Slovenia, and the Yugoslavist state soon joins COSECTOR along with its neighbors – all of which turn to Russia in fear of Ukraine. Among these fears are that the countries of ex-Yugoslavia stand no chance on their own, and calls for a ‘Neo-Yugoslavia’ spread from Serbia to Bosnia and from Croatia all the way even to Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo. Joining in on Russia’s condemnation is NATO and the UN – both organizations of which accuse Ukraine of ‘Neo-Nazism’. The Ukrainian ‘Outer Occupation’ is seen unanimously by the Atlantic community as ‘neo-imperialist’, and more sanctions are quickly enacted against the regime. Although the finding of a ‘common foe’ of Pact and NATO sees tensions ease between the Pact camp under the influence of Russia, and the NATO camp under the influence of France and Germany (the latter of which still barred the U.S. from re-applying for membership due to the present Interpol/Pact occupation of Maryland and NJ) – the sheer danger indicated by the vanishing of the nuclear weapons puts distrust into the hearts of many. In addition, Ukraine had failed to prevent extremist cells in the East from seizing control over Kyiv. Numerous unconstitutional laws are passed cementing the power that the Ukrainian Oligarchs had over their politics, and Ukraine succumbs to rapid democratic backsliding at the mercy of a radical group of anti-European ultra-nationalists. Spearheaded by party leader Ivan G. Volt, the anti-EU/Voltist “Правий сектор/Українська Національна Асамблея-Українська Народна Самооборона” Coalition – or, in English translation and transliteration, the “Right Sector and Ukrainian National Assembly-Ukrainian People’s Self-Defense” Coalition – seizes absolute control over Ukraine, pledging a “Ukrainian Eurasia” and 1,000 years of a New ‘Kievan Rus’ Empire. In his victory speech, Party Leader and Now-Incumbent Ukrainian President Ivan G. Volt thanks the Ukrainian people for his ascendance to power – but this goes largely unnoticed for it isn’t but a few hours earlier that three consecutive nuclear attacks precipitate on Tyndall Air Base, Colorado Springs and Air Base McChord – effectively neutralizing NORAD and the Continental air defense network of the United States of America.

Flag of Spain, c. 2027/2028
2027/2028 October – Since the 2020’s Egypt and Spain had been eyeing Africa with Imperialistic intent. An expeditionary force consisting of a reluctant alliance between IF and NATO forces deploy into Mali after Egyptian and Spanish forces supported by the Kremlin and Cairo cross the border and begin air raids on Gao and Kidal. It doesn’t take long for AOC, Spain and Egypt to secure the neighboring desert nation – Niger – and begin pillaging its Uranium-rich territories. Allied forces have to literally scramble air and ground forces as quickly as possible only to greet the Egyptian–Spanish offensive head-on and with a mere toe-hold in the southwestern tip of the country. The capital of Niger, Niamey, is split between the NATO-controlled southwest, and the Egypt/Spanish-controlled northeast. Nigeria adamantly supports NATO forces with troops and equipment – fearing the consequences of what could happen should the Spanish superstate penetrate south into their country. The Campaign lasts for most of the year and into the next, and eventually concluding in a stalemate. By the end of the new decade the European region was already on shaky ground, but now, following the NATO vs. Egyptian–Spanish military exchanges a few short months ago, the region had descended into complete and utter chaos. What was once a financial and cultural bastion of Earth was now beginning to look a lot like a modern-day Middle-East. Meanwhile, the proposed reunification of Yugoslavia (to fight Ukraine) captures the mainstream media. Seizing upon the international vilification of Ukraine’s expansionism, Ultranationalists in Yugoslavia push forward the idea of a militant “Balkan Union” repeatedly throughout the decade. Under this unification, a Yugoslavian government is officially erected in Belgrade on October 3rd as a military partnership with Russia and Spain. The only former Yugoslavian Socialist Republics to opt out are Macedonia, Croatia and Slovenia. In addition to Ukraine’s already bloated military infrastructure due to their annexation of the entire Belarusian and Moldovan economies, by this point Ukraine had also completed a contract of 215 helicopters (including 25 attack helicopters from Russia, tripling the size of their air force. Also purchased from Russia are; 1 helicopter carrier, 250 fighter aircraft, 150 transport aircraft, 5,500 tanks, 6,000 AFV, another 500 MLR systems, and 200 patrol craft. However, Spain had emerged as Russia’s favorite project.
With 286 surface vessels including 5 aircraft carriers (1 nuclear-powered from France), Spain’s navy was the 4th strongest on the planet. It is one of only 7 countries to possess more than 1 carrier. And one of only 3 (the UK, Ireland and Spain) to possess a battleship. Spain is now the only country other than the United States and Russia to possess a supercarrier AND THE ONLY ONE TO POSSESS BOTH The Ukrainian Navy doesn’t even come close.
However, Ukrainian tanks, numbering almost 10,000, now surpassed U.S. and Chinese tanks, second only to Russia.
The Ukrainian SPG fleet, at nearly 2,000 units was now surpassed only by Russia’s (5,972), America’s (1,935) and the Koreas.
However, Spain was right behind with 1,445 – the 6th largest fleet on Earth.
The Ukrainian AFV force, 16,550-strong, was now surpassed only by Russia (with 41,062) and the U.S. (with 31,298).
Still, Spain’s acquisition of military assets from occupied Morocco, Portugal and Algeria (for a grand total of 7,819 armored vehicles) in addition to over 400 Rocket Projectors, 5,100 BTR, and 400 tanks purchased from Russia put its AFV convoy at over 13,319 (excluding tanks).
In addition, Ukraine possessed 956 aircraft (slightly more than Spain) – placing it well amongst the top 10 air forces on Earth – and with a fleet of 236 surface vessels (compared to the 415 of the US, 714 of China, 352 of Russia, 319 of Egypt, 295 of India, 286 of Spain and 270 of Finland) it also had the 11th strongest Navy on Earth. Ukraine surpassed Egypt and Italy to contend with Spain the #9 spot in the most-powerful armed forces on Earth – surpassed only by South Korea, Pakistan, Japan, France, India, China, the United States, and Russia in that order – mainly due to the raw power fielded by their ground forces alone – in addition to possessing more than modest air and naval forces. Spain’s naval power surpassed Egypt, Turkey, and – eventually – France. What Spain lacked in tank power (Ukraine had twice the amount of tanks), Spain made up for in bigger guns – and the logistical and strategic advantage in being allies with Russia and dominating the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa with ready access to the massive Mediterranean Sea. Spain, unlike Ukraine, was not isolated. NATO attempted to isolate Spain after it began military cooperation with Russia, but this only brought the two aforementioned war-states closer together, eventually forming the Pact that they had which, including Egypt, would go down in history as one of the most powerful military alliances to ever eclipse the face of our planet. The United Kingdom had fallen to the #12 spot, which Ireland had by this time risen to – after its annexation of Scotland – and the two contested (militarily and economically), constantly intercepting the position and knocking the other down a peg for nearly a decade-straight, meanwhile Egypt had risen to the #11 spot, and Italy remained at #10, while – due to intense civil war – Germany had fallen to #13, and Turkey to #14 for the same reason as Germany. South Korea replaced Germany, Pakistan replaced Turkey, and Japan replaced Britain. France, India and China maintained their supremacy, while Russia overtook the United States – the former-superpower knocked down to 2nd place due to a more contained civil conflict, and the devastating attack on Norfolk by the Irish–Ukrainian strike force. Realizing the sheer threat posed by the Russians and Spain, EU nations campaign for a more centralized government and military – paving the way for a future United States of Europe. On April the 18th, the détente standoff between NATO Europe and Pact forces comes to an end as Ukrainian mechanized units enter Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and Liechtenstein. NATO units head the Ukrainians off in Zurich. Bombardment continues throughout the rest of the month and into May. In June Russian and Spanish forces commit a sizable attack thereafter – after Kyiv refuses to share the territory it had captured in Moldova, Romania, and Slovakia – to assist NATO forces in pushing back Ukraine. However, after Ukrainian forces are pushed back, Russia launches a multilateral assault on NATO forces with support from Spanish and Ukrainian infantry, initiating a mirror strategy designed to be exactly like that of the strategy initiated, brashly (and out of sheer desperation) to mirror the one of NATO. With a multilateral and intercontinental counterattack, NATO forces are knocked back riotously by Pact soldiers. Due to being associated with Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, the unrecognized Trump “Democracy” city-state’s presence in the United States prompts NATO to break off any and all relations with the United States of America. Infuriated, IF-led initiatives result in a “balkanizing” process of the US – which Trump immediately seizes upon to manipulate into a ‘Putinist’ expansion and annexation of territory – Maryland and New Jersey subsequently follow in joining Democracy. The IF initiative in California results in an autonomous region strong enough to hold its own, thus the Californian government refutes Trump’s Democracy. President Trump proclaims that his Democracy is the United States, while California – and a slowly growing coalition of other, smaller, states – defy the tyrannical business mogul-turned-dictator. While as California’s “Independence Front” initiative spearheaded by RECON possessed a significant advantage in population and the number of states that had united behind it, the Democracy had the next-most powerful states of them all; Texas and New York. Virginia would have been the Independents’ spearhead against the Democrats, but the Norfolk Attacks changed that, leaving the Pentagon and Pentagon-loyalists in Upstate NY exposed to Democrat forces in Maryland and New York. A ceasefire is enacted, but a standoff between the United States’ Pentagon and the Democrats led by the Trump White House keeps the shattered nation on edge. With angry men and women in uniform marching on Washington in support of the Independents; Democrat riot control respond in the way they would to an unruly protest demonstration or ‘riot’ – what they do not expect is a full-fledged military assault into Washington, D.C. – the skirmish lasts 15 minutes and ends only as President Trump threatens to nuke the Pentagon. Russia also threatens to detonate nuclear weapons over San Francisco, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Nashville, Chicago and Dallas – and with nearly a quarter of the population of North America at risk, the US led by President Rains backs down. Shortly thereafter, under pressure from loyalists in Congress, the Democracy Order President Donald J. Trump announces his Vice-President, Chelsea V. Clinton – confirming the suspicions of many that the Clintons were behind Trump and the formation of the Democracy Order. The African Crisis was formally recognized worldwide by November Third after NATO fell back, delivering parting strikes on IF and Pact forces alike. The dispute is assessed diplomatically between RECON and Brussels at a meeting between the two sides. NATO Secretary-General Bush accuses IF forces of ‘getting in the way’ and convoluting NATO’s campaign. Eventually ties warm after the IF and NATO agrees to set aside differences and focus on their mutual foe: rogue Islamic extremists and the Pact – particularly Russia.

The Spanish carrier strike-force (led by the former-USS Montana and former-Charles de Gaulle) on its way to join Irish naval assets (11/14/28)
2028 November – The Communist Party of China declares the COSECTOR an illegal organization, and that Moscow is merely illegally occupying the former Soviet Republics. Under international law they would be correct, but the IF (at this point consisting only of scattered, disorganized factions outside of North America) would say otherwise, accusing them of acts of “communist-neofascist techniques of regionalist aggression”. The Independence Front (citing their policy of non-alignment and prevention of WWIII), along with the states loyal to the “Pact” – abstain, although this does nothing to prevent the continuing NATO provocation of Russia, and thus, the Aktau and their allies. The US embassy is closed in China, further gapping the already massive rift between NATO-aligned and IF-aligned countries. Several months later, Communist and Egyptian-backed extremist insurgents in Cote d’Ivoire launch massive insurgencies into Guinea and Mali. Guinea is quickly overthrown and Mali receives little help from its neighbors. Burkina Faso and Ghana provide all they can possibly muster, but the Sierra Leonian and Ivorian elements, enjoying a steady supply of Egyptian money, continue to pound and overrun the allied resistance. This multilateral invasion, much similar in scope and purpose to the multilateralist invasion in central Europe a week ago, sparks a response from the IF who launches a response attack in Communist-held regions and the principle nations of Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone. Throughout the rest of the month IF launch attacks on Egyptian-controlled insurgent compounds primarily in Cote d’Ivoire. Eventually the legitimate Ivorian government is reestablished, yet IF continues a protracted campaign with Liberian death squads and an illegitimate, illiberal dictatorship after Egyptian forces paratroop into the fight. The Conflict in Africa generates a continuation of the ‘Migrant Crisis’ that nearly crippled Germany and Sweden in the 2010’s and early 2020’s. The right-wing ultranationalist party ‘Alternative for Germany’ (AfD) surges in support after a terror attack in Munich claims over 400 and injures over 1,000 others. The Islamic Council of Germany (ICG) condemns a series of violent retaliations against refugee camps throughout the rest of the month which in turn claims nearly 100 lives, some of them children. The first week of November continues to spiral the country into turmoil, as eastern Germany witnesses the rise of a right-wing paramilitary organization spearheaded by AfD and Neo-Nazi white-supremacists. The German government begins a protracted campaign against the insurgency – not unlike the Ukrainian government’s fight against Russian-backed separatist Luhansk and Donetsk in the 2010’s – as the country descends into civil war doomed to last for several years. Germany’s economy is wrecked and the nation withdraws its bid for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. The exacerbated migrant crisis plunges Stockholm into chaos, and NATO enlists Norway to contain the crisis. Sweden effectively collapses several weeks later, and Norway – via NATO – assumes all administrative responsibilities of Sweden, and Swedish personnel from all branches of government and military transfer – also via NATO – into the Norwegian political and military infrastructure. Russia seizes upon the opportunity to accuse Norway of imperialism, but little action is taken by Russia and neighboring Finland. The Finns agree to join NATO, and the Baltic Sea becomes the spearhead bastion of NATO. With the Norwegian military officially encompassing all of former-Sweden’s, Norway had effectively become a Regional Power, followed closely by Denmark with its powerful navy. With the collapse of Sweden, and the near-collapse of Germany, along with the further federalization of the European Union – Denmark and Norway came to be known by the end of the decade as the “Atlantic Two” or A2 – as the spearhead non-EU NATO military powers. With the accession of Finland, however, Russia begins to draw back its gas supply to southeastern Europe, generating a crisis that results in unprecedented radicalization in the Balkans. Shortly thereafter Yugoslavia is accused of transforming into a European-version of North Korea, with a right-wing ultranationalist government seizing absolute control of the country and enacting a mandatory military service for all able-bodied people over the age of 18 by November 2028. Like North Korea, the new fascist regime in Greece enlists nearly all of their manpower fit-for-service into their reserves, and after Ukrainian annexation of Moldova, Greece activates their paramilitary reserves, bringing their active manpower to nearly 4 million – growing to become the largest ground force in Europe – surpassed only by the Ukrainian and EU superstates. At Greece’s command, Serbia later embarks upon political expansion of its own; annexing Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro and regions of northern Macedonia and eastern Slovenia (plunging the latter two states into frozen conflicts) along with all assets there in pursuit of officially resurrecting a Yugoslavian superstate. The propaganda is powerful, painting both the EU and Kremlin as degenerate, but stressing that Hellas spearheaded by a New Yugoslavia, running an internationalist campaign built on uniting Slavic peoples everywhere (including in Russia and her government) was key to forming an effective bulwark against Brussels. With over 1,200 air craft, 3,856 tanks, 1.852 MLRS, 7,709 armor units old and new (Excluding tanks), 165 ships (including 13 attack submarines and 16 frigates), a population of over 20 million and over 4 million active soldiers – the Yugoslavian military had expanded to become a notably threatening rogue force, and by the next year began to mirror the North Korean rogue-state not only with its politics and ethics, but also in its military power.
Yugoslavia at its greatest extent – c. 2029
With 4.7 million active Yugoslavian forces, “Neo-Yugoslavia” now had the 7th-largest ground force on Earth – behind only Spain, China, India, Vietnam, South and North Korea. Later in the year, the conflict in Germany reaches such catastrophic proportions that involvement in a third party is suspected. Insurgents seize roughly 25% of Germany’s military equipment via an estimate 77,063 moles within the German military and its command infrastructure, and lock down most of eastern Germany, including Berlin. A fierce Second Battle of Berlin ensues, resulting in the German Chancellor being overthrown and most of the German government being forced into exile in Munich and the 140,900-odd remaining strength of the Bundeswehr into Hamburg. Several months later, the unrecognized Prussian state falls into a civil conflict of its own, and continues to bleed the German economy dry. With the US sanctioned, Africa in turmoil, and NATO forces bogged down in the conflict overseas, when NORAD goes dark barely any military forces active there realize. With the North American continent blind, isolated and wide-open, and 4 of the 10 active US supercarriers (one had gone missing in the Mediterranean a half-hour after the nuking), along with nearly 100 (nearly half) of the U.S. fleet docked at Naval Base Norfolk, and roughly a quarter of America’s Air Power stationed there as well – what happens next is Tom Clancy levels of horror. November 8th – Before anything can be done to alleviate the absence of NORAD and air reconnaissance, with roughly half of America’s military in North Africa fighting against Chinese and NATO-affiliated African insurgents, literally beyond the radar the all-too-familiar silhouette of a battleship last seen under the command of the US Navy, 7 carriers, the former-Charles de Gaulle (previously owned by France), an Admiral Kuznetsov-class heavy cruiser (purchased from Russia by Spain), former-USS Kitty Hawk, former-USS Midway – which US Intelligence denote as originating from the U.K. – 3 Juan Carlos-class carriers and a strike group of dozens of other Spanish and Scots–Irish ships of various size and class – including a Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft supercarrier (flying the flag of Great Ireland) and 4 of the 5 notoriously-Scottish Vanguard-class assault submarines – show up off the shoreline of Naval Base Norfolk. The sleeping giant is, poetically-speaking, slain in his slumber. The battleship, formerly known as the USS Montana, and now known by the Spaniards as the Alfonso XIII, launches a missile bombardment – with accompanying strikes from the carrier strike group – effectively neutralizing the base’s and docked carriers’ shoreline and air defense systems in one fell swoop. Following this – a joint-squadron assault of Scottish Eurofighter Typhoons and Russian air forces bombard and destroy the five docked supercarriers, and over the course of a half-hour (even amid a hastily thrown-together counterattack from Norfolk forces stationed there and abroad), with staggeringly-high levels of ballistics support from the surface battalion (nearly 100 ships “spilling” out of the canal, able to be seen from orbit) the entire base is wiped out – along with every man, officer and military asset – down to the last scrap of equipment – erased from existence. Knowing full-well the staggering level of martial power the United States possessed, the entire continent of North America is paralyzed in terror. Spain and Ireland (with Russian air assistance) had effectively yanked the titan that was once the U.S. military down to their level by its Achilles’ tendon. In addition to the technological advantage Ireland possessed over the U.K. after annexing Scotland, ‘D’ Squadron of the S.A.S. – the deadliest Special Forces group on Planet Earth – goes rogue and joins the Scots-Irish, already based in Scotland and of Scottish descent. Every strategic move made by the Russian- and Spanish-backed Gaelic war-state had been executed perfectly and without error – and now the U.S. was fighting an even battle with Spain alone. To make matters even worse – a naval strike battalion of hundreds composed of the Russian navy was on its way across the pacific, China was positioning its 714-vessel-strong Navy into a threatening geographically-strategic formation, and U.S. ally Japan was powerless to do anything about it. The EU takes a daring move in sanctioning Ireland and suspending the country from the Union, and ordering a US-backed arrest warrant for Chancellor Roman. However, Roman’s influence in Brussels splits the nation and EU leaders. NATO locks down Flanders, and following this – NATO forces spearheaded by London Loyalists occupy the small country. Knowing what would happen to any country that opposed them, Dublin and Edinburgh waved their victory at Norfolk like a pirate’s flag, challenging and warning all at the same time. Now, Russia was on their way to occupy the fragmented United States; former superpower made martyr. Less than 24 hours later, it is discovered that the NATO-allied governments of Greece and Albania had fallen via instigation from the Ultranationalist government in Spain. NATO invokes Article 5 of the Collective Defense Treaty and multilaterally declares war on Spain and Yugoslavia for politically annexing the two countries, and thus attacking their territorial integrity, as well as the theft of nuclear weapons from France – originally attributed to Ukraine by Russia. Spain, Egypt and Russia emerge as the Italy, Japan and Germany of the imminent Third Global Confrontation. With NATO on one side; Spain, Russia and Egypt on the other, the U.S., Democracy, Ireland and Ukraine sat curiously in the middle, fighting their own fight. Either way, our embattled planet Earth’s various warring nations, territories and governments had solidified into three, roughly four, adversarial factions vying for control of said associated territories. This was the Dawn of WW3.
The Dawn of WW3
See: Argentine–Brazilian Territorial Crisis, Democrat–Dutch Occupation of Brussels, NATO Declares War on Spain, Russia Declares War on the United States, Ireland Declares War on the U.S., & Egyptian Invasion of Palestine (December 2028 – March 2029)
A missile attack in northern Israel during the Egyptian invasion, c. 2029 2028 December – Interpol continues to operate as rogue militants across the world, and being primarily Egyptian and Muscovite-backed, in turn back an Egyptian incursion into Palestine and Israel which inadvertently unites the rival peoples against a common foe. With Palestine backed by IF peacekeepers in the region, IF utilizes what little forces are made available to them in the wake of the attack on Norfolk, and launches a coalition strike hours later. By October, the Holy Land is engulfed in conflict between the P5+NATO and Egypt, the protraction and binding contract between the IF and NATO prevents the former from taking any legitimate action against the regime until Russia pulls back and abandons Egypt to assist Ukraine in the US invasion force. Egypt, however, stands tall and seemingly unstoppable with one of the world’s foremost powerful military forces, and surrounded on nearly all sides by Arabic allies.
2029 January – Ireland and Russia had formally declared war on the United States and vice-versa. Ukraine attempted to attack Ireland after the Norfolk attacks, but the vastly superior Scottish-led naval force dealt critical damage to the Ukrainian fleet. Ukraine surrendered to Ireland and retreated, declaring non-alignment in the conflict between NATO and the Pact. February – Guerrilla warfare and asymmetric warfare being waged by Venezuelan military forces and Argentine insurgents in the Falkland Isles against Falklandic military and U.S. elements since the culmination of the African Conflict between the West and Aktau, escalates to a new all-time high when a high-ranking Falklandic politician and ambassador to the IF is assassinated by Venezuelan militia via carefully placed moles in the Falklandic and Argentine governments. The outcry causes the Falklands and United Kingdom to declare a state of emergency, and it isn’t but a few days later that public demonstrations against the executive order spread like wildfire. The Venezuelan movement Tupamaro was discovered to be what the anti-government demonstrations primarily consisted of after investigations into the nature of the controversy were launched by the CIA, IF and RECON. Further investigations revealed obvious war-crimes and human rights violations, all of which were being ignored or covered up, or both, by Russia, Spain, and other Venezuelan allies. Discovering this, the US deployed immediate reaction groups based around RECON and NATO primarily associated with regional disaster relief response and political crises. The alarm sets in throughout South America, with revelations that El Salvador, Brazil and Venezuela had been supporting the movements financially, and cooperating clandestinely under the careful cover of Aktau whitewashing for closer military cooperation, and plans to cripple the South American, Central American, and by extension, the US economy and gain a long-sought foothold in the Western hemisphere for their Aktau allies. With efforts put forth by the Mexican and Argentine governments, all of South America save Brazil and Venezuela rally behind Argentina and the Falklands in opposition to the Tupamaro strike-teams. Venezuelan patriotism sees the opposition to Tupamaro only increase their power and influence in Venezuela, and by the early months of the very next year, Tupamaro both indirectly and directly controls the Venezuelan and Brazilian governments. Venezuela, and their allies in China, Russia and the Pact, assisted heavily in this endeavor. The revelation of this to all of America, including the Democracy, results in widespread condemnation of the Venezuelan Tupamaro government and an intense territorial crisis between Argentina and Brazil, as the latter begins channeling troops over the country’s borders by the truckloads and boatloads, utilizing the miles upon miles of dense jungle to trickle their forces into Argentina to prepare for an invasion. Their efforts are discovered and cut off by the end of the second day and beginning of the third night of Brazilian military exercises. The result is full-blown conflict and an intense Brazilian Civil War. Said conflict reverberates throughout the South American continent for years to come. March – In March it is revealed that U.S. Navy SEALS aligned with the Trump Democracy directly participated in aiding and abetting of the Tupamaro strike teams in Argentina. Seeing how this group is responsible for war crimes, the SEAL Team is automatically guilty-by-association. The group is captured by the CIA and extradited to The Hague and Brussels in the Netherlands and Belgium. The Democrat government thereafter is found guilty of staging a coup that destabilizes Belgium and results in the state becoming fractured between Flanders and Wallonia, the latter falling under the jurisdiction of the European Union, and the former falling under military occupation by Democrat and Dutch forces. Brussels is partitioned into Walloon and Flemish (South and North Brussels) respectively. Spearheaded by NATO, Flanders is effectively put under a military junta, while the Democrats and the Dutch go about a Nazi-esque military police action profiling and systematically capturing all ICC-aligned individuals. Shortly thereafter, Lodewijk Asscher becomes Prime Minister – and institutes sweeping legislation involving militarization, annexation of Flanders, and ultranationalism. Mid-March – The Independence Front nations, NATO, and RECON formally decide to, within their own legitimate sphere and scope of international credibility, recognize multilaterally between their most economically, politically and martially powerful allies, the State of Palestine. Israel fully supports this and even amidst the intense conflict in the Middle-East the latter, and her allies in NATO and the P5, make great gains in arming Palestine against their mutual enemies in Egypt, Russia and radical Islamists. While only possessing an army of around 20,000 by February, they had great technological gains in the few 5 months of their brief existence thanks to financial and military contributions from Israel and their Western allies, but Iran’s massive army of over a million was still more than a match to tiny Palestine and war-torn Israel. Even the once-powerful Iran was torn asunder from nearly a decade of strife, civil unrest, and financial and political mismanagement. Their greatest ally and greatest asset right now was what assistance RECON and their NATO allies could lend to them in this time of global war.
Territories under Spanish control (excluding Morocco and Algeria) – c. 2029
Ultranationalists in Serbia had been vocal for many years – even prior to seizing power – in their ambitions to see Yugoslavia return from the ashes more powerful than it had ever been before, and by 2030 it was no secret that the anti-NATO Balkanized bulwark was no more than a Yugoslavian counterbalance to the Brussels-backed NATO expansionism. In addition, the Balkanized superstate began a program in the likeness of the Bosnian Wars of the 1990’s… on steroids. Ethnic cleansing and eugenics began to unfold against the populations genetically furthest from the Serbs and Yugoslavs – such as the Romanians and Turks – became rampant, and Yugoslavia began to outright annex large swathes of Romanian, and Bulgarian territory. The heavily-militarized Yugoslav superstate, in many ways more powerful and more threatening than the Ultranationalist Ukraine (perhaps not Russia or Spain, however), began not to worry so much the West about its similarities to the militarism of North Korea, but moreover – worryingly – its similarities to the imperialism, size and strength of pre-WWII Nazi Germany.

Two Spanish ‘MAWS’ (Mobile Autonomous Weapon Systems) defend a heavily-damaged Russian unit, c. 2030
2030 June – The UK Prime Minister and the House of Commons call on RECON for an emergency summit between IF and NATO powers in regards to the massive corruption in Ireland, Irish-occupied Scotland, and the House of Lords. NATO declines the invitation, but the IF attends with rigor, still at odds over Roman’s justifiably unfulfilled demand that the US cede Virginia, Georgia and the Carolinas back to the Crown. Just a week ago Queen Elizabeth II dies, and the UK, transformed by the Third Global Conflict, enacts a law transforming the Monarchy into a democratic institution – allowing the British people the chance to elect whether Prince William or Prince Charles becomes the new Monarch. Overwhelming support comes in for a King William-Queen Catherine rule, due to their opposition to Chancellor Roman. Prince Charles, Prince Phillip and the late Queen are thereafter discovered to be supporting the Chancellor, and are (Elizabeth Windsor posthumously) forced into exile in Scotland. The highlights at the meeting are Roman’s steady – but gradually declining – influence in the EU Parliament, and his cooperation with Ukrainian forces occupying the French island of Corsica. Apparently, Ukrainian and Egyptian officials cooperated with Mossad, Islamist and AOC assets to sow conflict in the Middle-East to distract from the occupation of Corsica, due to the presence of anti-Roman rebels on the island. Through cooperation with RECON, the UK government begins plans for a coup to overthrow Chancellor Roman and his supporters in Brussels. Meanwhile, RECON-Unit 7 and NATO forces arrive in Corsica to beat back the Ukraine’s forces occupying the island. Unit 7, with heavy assistance from the IF and Corsican rebels, defeat the Ukrainian-occupational force and free the Corsican people from Voltist hands. Soon afterward, Ukraine formally declares war on the United States and NATO, and thereafter officially re-joins the Russian-spearheaded Aktau Pact. August – Egypt invades Israel and launches an ICBM barrage at Tel Aviv, in addition to the detonation of a nuclear warhead in the Golan Heights. Nearly a million are killed almost instantaneously. NATO and IF are on-site within the hour, with the US, UK, France, Japan and Israel committing a majority of their amenable military forces into Jerusalem, where Egypt and AOC supported by Ukrainian and Russian forces are attempting to establish a foothold. Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States are questionably absent from the conflict, but Coalition forces are able to beat back the invaders by September. Late August – Ukrainian infiltrators seize upon the finance-weary Romania to bolster and erect an effective Ukrainian bulwark powerful enough to threaten Romania and most of Eastern Europe. Ukraine had – by this point – occupied Moldova, and effectively annexed the country. An EU summit then convenes at the Grassalkovich Palace in Bratislava, Slovakia. The Palace and Bratislava is then attacked by Ukrainian air and ground forces. The invasion of Bratislava is repulsed by NATO and IF forces, but the victory is short-lived as a Ukrainian intervention into Maramureș overshadows the average active 50-100,000-strong troop-strength in Eastern Slovakia and Southeastern Lithuania at that time, putting the entire region into shock. Ukraine enters and occupies Maramureș utilizing 2 million soldiers, 8,000 AFV, 5,000 tanks, 500 MLRs, and 600 SPGs, as well as half of their air force – roughly 500 craft. Ukraine shuts down the Romanian county by pouring over half of their entire military strength into the region, quickly locking down the city and setting up a forward operating base to allow their air craft to join in on the bombardment and invasion of Northern Cluj. Before anything can be done, Ukrainian forces quickly shut down the northern half of Cluj county, sending half of the invasion force south, and the other half north – back into Ukraine. Their MLRs and SPG – as well as all air powers – remain in Romania. With over a third of their missile strength aimed for Bucharest, the Ukrainians drive home their implied message with one final saber-swing. The top-secret U.S. Orbital Strike program (stationed in orbit over Romania to safeguard the United States’ NATO allies from potential Russian attack in the 21st Century) went offline in early August and by August 11th it was made abundantly clear that this was a Russian/Spanish-caused problem. Jointly-controlled by Spain and Russia by this time – the Spanish government faced a sizeable invasion from NATO and RECON forces roughly a week later and used the weapon on Romania, destroyed the mountain city of Baia-Mare and rendered the entirety of Maramureș uninhabitable, killing over 100,000, a still-devastatingly-high bodycount that could have been as high as 500,000 had RECON not done their part to get as many civilians and resistance fighters to safety. The destruction wrought by Russia, Spain and Egypt by this time provides enough of a distraction to allow the Spanish Monarchy, which had been unknowingly cooperating with Moscow since the era of Franco to pioneer the penultimate orbital WMD during the Cold War, to unleash a monster upon their enemies the likes of which nobody to ever walk the Earth has ever before witnessed.
Russian ‘Viking’ MAW
September – Hidden amid the thousands of satellites and pieces of debris orbiting Earth, a weapon system far beyond the level of technological advancement of any combination of dominant economies or militaries the forces of Earth could ever hope to bolster sat just beyond the prying eyes of the Human Race. The King of Spain gains official jurisdiction over Spain’s and Russia’s secret army of MAWS – Mechanized Autonomous Weapon Systems – pledging to use them against their enemies. Whereas most of NATO’s forces were tied down in Israel, Europe was left without much defense at home, and most European nations had virtually no standing military left, economically dependent on the United States after the Cold War. In major capitals and cities – Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Bonn, Vienna, Geneva, Venice, Strasbourg, Manchester, Yorkshire and London – as well as Bogota, Mexico City, Toronto, Potosi and Santiago de Chile on the American continent (although all inbound for the United States are shot down by US ICBM barrages) over 3,100 MAW units deploy from orbit all across the planet into standby mode, bearing the flag insignia of the countries of Spain, Yugoslavia and Russia. Upon activation, just 50 MAWS are able to lay waste to an entire country. The death toll tips 3.5 million within just 48 hours of global MAW activation. It isn’t a moment later; however, that RECON and NATO are assembled for an emergency summit at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. It is here that it is discovered that not only do Russia and Spain posses an estimate 2,500-strong MAW force (Yugoslavia also contributes roughly 1,000 MAW units in the initial orbital deployment which thereafter attack England) – but as do the UK, US and Japan, with a combined force of over 4,200 – the UK and US possessing a combined 2,308 of the units prepped and ready to go as was the Japanese (whose had been kept secret since the early 1970’s) Ronin One. With units inbound for Europe, and some deployed into America, the Joint-Chiefs assess that although the two sides’ MAW forces are evenly matched, they denote that unlike the NATO and IF MAWS which involve some form of human interaction into the Autonomous equation, the hulking Russian, Spaniard and Yugoslavian MAWS are 100% literal, AI-powered killing machines.
Russian–Spaniard occupation of Germany
See: Russian–Spaniard occupation of Berlin, Slavic Siege of Yorkshire & UK-EU relations (September – December 2030)
A Spanish (L) and Slavic (R) MAW firing upon a Polish ‘WarPac’ Tank unit, c. 2030
2030 September – The MAW force in America destroy the enemy force while suffering only 26 casualties. The situation in Europe is not so tame. Three Russian, Spanish and Yugoslavian MAW battalions are formed into around 100-300, and two teams of Yugoslav MAWS (200-300) each to hit the forces in England (Spain), Austria (Russia), Italy (Spain & Russia), Germany (Russia), and Southeastern Europe (Yugoslavia) respectively. An eighth, composed of American and British forces, numbering at about an even number to that of the Russian MAW battalion, meets the enemy MAWS just as they reach Berlin. In a conflict that results in the deaths of another 450,000 people, it is a Pyrrhic victory for the Allied MAWS. By the end of the month all of the MAW forces have been pushed into Germany – the nexus of the Pact occupation of Europe. In response, Spain sends the military to hit UN ground forces in the region. October – RECON Units deploy into Hamburg and Berlin. Although they are not, NATO Command sees them as potentially linked to the rogue Clinton–Trump regime reigning over the Democrat war state, which consistently refers to itself as the United States in Exile (USE). NATO responds to RECON presence in Germany and occupied regions of Croatia by deploying their deadliest Special Forces – the Norwegian MJK. MAWS also deploy from Norway and Greece – with some tasked specifically with the neutralization of the RECON soldiers. Governments in Norway and Belgium’s EU also propagate the misinformation of RECON being a Trump ploy throughout Europe – at the wishes of NATO Secretary-General Bush – and RECON soon finds themselves hunted throughout the continent by both of the warring factions, as forces from Russia, Serbia, Norway and Greece relentlessly pursue the international task force. The Allies had suffered 1,567 MAW casualties, while the Russians and Spaniards had suffered 2,693 (1600 in Germany, 306 in Zurich, 722 in Italy), with the remaining 1,315 pushed back into Hamburg. Frustratingly, the two MAW forces remained almost evenly matched, with the tactically-superior AI MAWS only 310 behind the Allied MAWS. On the flipside, a reserve force of 557 MAWS deploy on sight to aid in the push-back. The bolstered assault force of 2,182 manage to cut the enemy MAW numbers in half with only 57 casualties of their own, and push them back all the way to the border of Switzerland, where the 598 remaining MAWS break rank and fly back to Slav-occupied Slovenia and Austria.
Africa Consumed by War
See: Arab–Egyptian Invasion of Nigeria, Central-East African Conflict, & Bioterrorism (October – December 2030/2031)
2030 October – The failure of NATO to successfully overthrow the dictatorship of President Okwonkwo Aguabwali in Liberia results in the occupation of Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Togo – establishing puppet dictators in the aforementioned six countries. The occupation of the IF states prompts a rapid counterattack from US forces, but when the new Aktau-aligned axis of African states threatens Nigeria – an IF MAW strike team of 47 supported by roughly 60,000 infantry deploys into the western region of the country. While the invasion of Nigeria is quickly repulsed, the 12 nations of Central and East Africa – from Ethiopia and the western border of Kenya to the maritime shoreline of Cameroon, from the outermost extent of the Egyptian occupation all the way to Botswana – almost simultaneously fall into chaos and civil war, creating a power vacuum perfect for Chinese-aligned Egypt’s aspirations of an African Caliphate. December – By December, reports of ‘bioterrorist’ attacks pop up all over Europe. US intelligence suspects it is the second wave of the Greek–Russian assault on Europe, with the first being the initial MAW deployment. The thing is, nobody can pinpoint the exact country of allegiance, or even the nationality, of these mysterious ‘Shadow Police’.
The Zombic Crisis
See: Zombic War, Eugenics, Zombic Fungus, Bioterrorism, Zombic Outbreak of Europe & the Americas (January – June 2031/2032)
Despite the terror and barbarity of the Zombic outbreaks they were largely – luckily – contained within designated zones. 2031 January – The Black Thirteen, an anti-neural agent created from the mutation of the O. unilateralis by nanotechnology, is discovered to be the weapon of choice utilized by the bioterrorists. Seeing how they attack European states at first, it is suspected they work for the United States by NATO and the Pact…that is until they attack the Western United States. It is confirmed they are neither Islamic terrorists nor are they Ultranationalist extremists from any one country. What elicits further confusion is the advanced power armor and weaponry they utilize. The prime suspicion for the funding and support of the bioterrorists then shifts to international organizations such as NATO. After bioterrorist attacks on Salt Lake City, Vancouver, Seattle, Dallas and Los Angeles, all implications of US or IF involvement in the bioterrorism is swept aside, and nations all across the world begin to set their sights on Interpol and NATO. June – For six months Europe struggles against the Zombic threat. The Pact deploys a reserve force of 3,771 MAWS to combat the rapidly spreading bio-weapons. They succeed in pushing the threat back out of Eastern Europe and into the Southeastern/Balkans region by late June. Earlier in the month, although the American public take up arms against the infected back in February, in the end the entire United States west of the Mississippi River is quarantined, the major points of the Red Line established by US forces in western Chicago and Memphis TN. San Francisco quarantines the city limits and establishes a ‘Fortress Francisco’ policy put forth by the city’s Mayor and the Governor of California both. Officials note that a smaller infestation occurred in Mountain City in Eastern TN, which resulted in the town being quarantined. Although the culprits were not then known, with recent developments it becomes clear that the source of the weapon was borne in Oak Ridge, a few short miles north of the unrecognized Appalachian secessionist region. By July over half-a-million people in the United States alone have fallen victim to the contagion, with that number at approximately 1.8 million worldwide.
Egyptian–Saudi invasion of the Jordan Valley
See: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, War in the Middle-East & Zombie Outbreak of the Middle-East (June – October 2032/2033)
2031/2032 June – In an unexpected move the Egyptians and Saudis launch a multilateral invasion aimed at destroying Israel and occupying Iraq and Jordan. Jordan and Israel thereafter unite with the IF-aligned Iraq to counter the assault. For months upon months the two sides go back and forth, pushing each other but with neither side gaining a permanent foreseeable advantage over the other. This stalemate persists for years, even amongst a bioterrorist attack on Bethlehem that prompts IF reintervention into the region. October – Bioterrorists launch simultaneous attacks on Bethlehem and Riyadh. This causes both sides to experience a hiccup in their tactics, but the bitter fighting does not slow, allowing the infection to rapidly grow out of hand. By January the infestation has reached such a tipping point that not even the combined forces of the 600,000-strong force, the IDF, Iraqi and Jordanian militaries can hold out. A plan is established to divert the flow of the contagion toward Riyadh from Bethlehem and Palestine as best as possible, utilizing controversial carpet-bombing of north Palestine and southern Jordan. It is an act of desperation that is seized upon by NATO forces to slander the IF to the fullest extent. In the wake of the Zombie Outbreak, however, it barely receives any attention at all.
Japan and China ally against Communism
See: Communist Invasion of the Philippines, Communist Invasion of Japan, Tibetan Uprising & Zombie Crisis of East Asia (February – August [2033-2035])
2033-2035 February – On February 15th the insurgents launch several more attacks in East Asia – Shanghai, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Petropavlovsk, Seoul, Pyongyang, Singapore, Vladivostok, Osaka, Manila, Quezon City and Bangkok – in a dozen cities in Russia, China, Vietnam, South Korea, North Korea, Japan and the Philippines. Twelve hours later over 3,780 sightings have occurred and over 960 confrontations involving the cryptids have been reported. At least 7,791 deaths occur within nine hours of the attacks, and continue to escalate by an average of 2.4 deaths an hour, with another 0.6 death increase in escalation at a roughly 50% chance of said growth and nearly 0% chance of any visible implosion every ten hours that went by. Chinese authorities manage to quarantine the northwestern and southern regions of Shanghai, while Singapore manages to drive the infected out of the city-state and quarantine the city limits by the morning of the 21st, other cities that manage to survive are Vladivostok (which, although a protracted campaign, manage to use the coastline and harbors as an effective brace against the encroaching hordes, allowing them to perform a tactical piston to rebound against the enemy), Ho Chi Minh City (using their home field advantage they eliminate the infected within twelve hours, before they can pose an adequate threat), Seoul (by the 16th), Osaka (manage to quarantine the infection within the south district by the 17th), Manila (by the 16th) and Bangkok. However, Hong Kong, Petropavlovsk, Pyongyang and Quezon City are flattened by the infection – the result is the complete infection of the northern Philippines, cryptid occupation of Far-East Russia, the infection of Southeast China and North Korea by February of next year. August – During the Zombie Crisis of East Asia, China comes upon the realization that Japan’s, and the rest of the region’s, intense focus on the containment and pacification of the bioterrorist threat lends it the perfect opportunity to trample Japan and occupy the island, to exact revenge upon the Nationalists that attacked their country in WWII. China invades Japan and the Philippines with its full force of hundreds of millions of soldiers, thousands of aircraft and hundreds of naval vessels including fifty battlecruisers and 3 supercarriers. What China forgets is the Japanese MAW complement of still-over 550 MAWS (459 Scout, 82 Command and 4 Tanks), which they had been actively upgrading and retrofitting with constantly-updating technology and consistently more advanced weaponry for the past two years. Although China still have over 1,000, they are outmatched. The invasion is repulsed, miraculously, as Japan throws all 10,173,000 of its military personnel from the navy, ground forces and air forces – including its 557-strong “advanced walkers” – against the invaders. Over 50 million Chinese soldiers are killed, including three quarters of their own MAW force, while the Japanese lose a paltry 17 MAWS. China’s Philippines invasion is repulsed almost instantly by the heavy number of infected there, and shortly after the Japanese repel China on August 20th, anti-Communist Tibetan separatist movements begin to surge across the continent. With the Liberation Army already in a weathered state from their battering by the Japanese, they make the last mistake they should’ve made – poorly executed intelligence and a heated ‘shoot first ask questions later’ attitude. Delivering the exact same response they have given to every attempted uprising, what they do not expect is a tactical, guerrilla-style counterattack with carefully and patiently executed strategic response by the Tibetan Insurrectionists. Several cells placed within the PLA and Communist Party execute bombings against government structures in Shanghai, Beijing, and Tianjin – as well as PLA strongholds in Chengdu, Luoyang and Xuchang. This creates a domino effect resulting in the immediate elimination of most of the Communist Party and PLA command structure, throwing the Chinese armed forces into disarray and giving the Tibetan opposition the tactical superiority for the duration of the confrontation. Sympathetic Anticommunist movements gain footholds in each of the seven military regions arising from opposition to the Communist Party from within the PLA. Throughout the rest of the year, into the next, and the beginning of the year after that, the Communists slowly lose their grip on Beijing and China as a whole. Eventually they are weakened to a point that the North Korean government, dependent on Communist support from Beijing, collapses, and Seoul becomes the seat of a unified Korea for the first time in almost a century. Shortly thereafter Korea, Japan, Taiwan and India launch an all-out assault on Beijing, capturing it and politically liberating China no more than 48 hours later. 2034-2035 – Despite Tibet’s ostensible political victory, the Communists – led by the imperialist neo-fascist Fang – via UN and CIA support hold out for several more years within the walls of the Forbidden City as the de facto headquarters of a Chinese-led UN dominion. Field Marshal Fang Kaizeng, the self-appointed yet unchallenged UNCIC since 2033 after Obama, had been the last person seen with his predecessor, and is thus blamed for his disappearance. By 2035 the IF led by Tibet is able to mount a successful assault on the Palace of Heavenly Purity and capture Marshal Fang, thus ending the incessant hostilities fomenting within Beijing since 2033.
NATO–Danish invasion of the United States of America
See: Manhattan Campaign, Euro–Spanish invasion of Eastern U.S. & EU–US relations (September 2033 – July 2034)
New York City, Democracy (U.S.); c. 2034
2032/2033 – 2033/2034 Manhattan Campaign – It wasn’t long after the fall of Red China and North Korea that the nations of Eastern Asia were able to mount a united offensive against the cryptids. By September 6th the East Asian Outbreak was slowed and pacified, with a few stragglers here and there in remote regions. Europe, although still struggling against the shadows of Russia and Italy, was able to keep the infestation contained in Southeastern Europe, and after the fall of the extremist governments in Iran and Syria, Israel, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt are able to mount a successful offensive against the infection in the Palestinian and Anbar regions of the Middle-East. A rampant Zombie crisis in Riyadh had spread to outlying regions by this time, however, and Saudi military elements were forced to focus attention inward. Meanwhile, the mainland United States was still struggling against the rampant hordes. While Memphis, Chicago and San Francisco held steadfast, the US had not experienced a moment’s reprieve long enough to formulate a unified offense strategy. The NATO Secretary-General, George W. Bush, is discovered to be working secretly with Irish Chancellor Roman and Democrat President Chelsea Clinton and had effectively taken control of the NYPD and CIA. The former-UNCIC; Barack H. Obama, had been found dead in China – obviously he had been used as a pawn by Bush, Fang, the Russians and the Balkanized to take the heat off of them and distract from the fact that NATO and the UN had been hijacked to be utilized as a vessel to facilitate a Chinese invasion of New York, which would thereafter leave a vacuum wide open enough to allow them to assert de-facto control over the city. The US government is alerted and President Rains is escorted to safety. An Intelligence Community shadow-state emerges tied between intelligence and paramilitary assets in the CIA’s and Interpol’s NYPD and DHS and financial assets in Democracy. At the same time US forces, through their connections at the MMB (Manhattan Municipal Building) spies on the UN building to discover a strategy by Interpol and the Peacekeepers to take back London, and direct the furor by NATO at Clinton instead at the United States as a whole.
Norwegian MAWS deploying onto the Jersey shore (“For alt vi har! Og alt vi er! ”), c. 2033
NATO – primarily backed by Denmark, Norway and the MLF (Multinational Land Force), and Nordic EU battle-groups, and spearheaded by the Norwegian MJK/FSK with Euro air forces and Danish–Finn Naval assets (as well as a 500-odd-strong MAW detachment from Norway and Denmark) – launches an attempted occupation of Interpol-controlled Manhattan. Utilizing over 1,000 MAWS and over 100,000 ground troops that had been employing Wall St. and the Financial District as a staging area for the past year, NYPD and the Peacekeeper force in Manhattan responds quicker than expected and takes invading NATO forces by surprise. US Special Forces end up caught in the middle. Given adequate warning to vacate, having already pooled all of their assets and belongings at offshore locations (in addition to steady preparation for such an event for over 3 decades), the financial community and power elite of New York evacuate to safe havens. The first tally on the mission parameters is the occupation and lockdown of the financial district, particularly Wall St. The power elite and the CIA-backed Interpol militants wanted the Capital of the World for themselves, to rip it away from the United States and the People. Now the time had arrived to wrench Manhattan from the hands of these elite. The invasion is followed immediately by precision missile strikes against the MMB, Empire State Building (to disrupt nationwide broadcasting), 432 Park Ave. (used as partial residence for US infantrymen) 70 Pine St., the Woolworth Building, the Tishman-Speyer Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grand Central, NYC Transit, One Liberty Plaza, Ft. Hamilton, NYPD, and the Statue of Liberty over the course of roughly 15 minutes (NYPD, Ft. Hamilton, the Statue of Liberty, 432 Park Ave., MMB and the Empire State Building are all destroyed simultaneously). In addition to these preliminary strikes, residential buildings suspect of housing infantry in preparation for the invasion of the United States (Interpol and Democrat forces) – 1717 Broadway, Liberty Tower, Barclay Tower, Biltmore Tower, CitySpire Center, The Corinthian, The Eldorado, The Epic, Madison Green, Metropolitan Tower, Battery Park’s Millennium Point and Millennium Tower – are destroyed. Although the hundred-thousand-strong mobilization was – tactfully – spread out primarily in as many low-lying residential structures as possible, the leveling of New York’s residential skyscrapers still took out a rather large chunk of the total “invasion” force; 7,000 soldiers and over 300,000 civilians are killed – but US and RECON forces manage to save as many as possible. Just as Clinton, Roman and the General had planned, these were not Paramilitary, Democrat and NYPD forces preparing for an invasion of the U.S., they were U.S. forces preparing to take back New York. Just as they had planned, the planned U.S. takeover of Manhattan had been stopped in its tracks, delivering the city to NATO and the EU. Following the initial strike, the Nordic Battlegroup and MLF advance force of 20,000 (400 Norwegian MJK, 600 Norwegian FSK, and 2 Danish Units of 350 apiece, backed by Hungarian forces numbering roughly 17,000) preambles the rest of the invasion, hitting US forward operating bases and critical civilian targets. They are – for the most part – contained within the Financial District and Wall Street, but a few teams continue to harass US forces throughout the Campaign. With a fleet of over one-hundred surface vessels (bolstering nearly 100,000 soldiers) sitting just off the shores of Manhattan – the reserve Visegrad and Mediterranean EU Battlegroups wait silently for the OK from Nordic forces to go ahead and make landfall. NATO and US forces had been practically invited in and trapped inside the city to fight, while the UN was willing to sacrifice Manhattan to destroy the bottled-necked US and NATO forces – because if they couldn’t have it, no one could. The advance force locks down the financial district with NATO forces abroad inbound for the combat site. Fifteen minutes after the first shots are fired between US and NATO forces, the Nordic Battlegroup (Danes, Finns, and Poles) come to their aid with an aerial campaign (Backed by the entire Norwegian Air Force: 195 Norwegian Gripens, over 60 helicopters and 20 bombers, the entire Polish Air Force: over 600 aircraft – helicopters, bombers, fighters, etc) a Danish–Norwegian air-to-surface deployment of approximately 20,000 Danish and Norwegian soldiers immediately thereafter. While US-aligned naval forces are assembled off the coast and do battle with the NATO (Danish & Finn) naval assets, most fighting occurs in entrenched street-to-street fighting between NATO and US ground forces involving IFVs, Tanks and artillery strikes. Although NATO’s major MAW fleet is attempted utilization against US ground forces, American MAWS successfully outmaneuver and push back the enemy MAWS. Most MAWS are destroyed in intense firefights ranging from midtown to uptown Manhattan, but primarily associated around Central Park due to the freedom of movement that the large machines required to do battle (that were utterly restricted by the narrow streets and clustered concrete jungle, resulting in much unneeded property damage). Within the first 17 hours over 3/4ths of the total MAW forces on both sides are destroyed either by other MAWS, artillery or hulking Anti-MAW siege tanks primarily employed by the NATO warfighters. As the conflict continues for months on end, the ground combat continues as a stalemate contained to the most-heavily combat-intensive area of the conflict centered around the UN building, and the remaining handful of MAWS on both sides form cohesive strike teams and proceed hunting one another amid the concrete jungle. The Manhattan Campaign remains a stalemate for 9 months straight. It isn’t until the final two months of the Campaign that US Deltas, Green Berets, SEALS and RECON teams gain the upper hand, with the Japanese Ronin Two strike force delivering the uppercut with an aerial insertion of their entire MAW assault force. By June the NATO force has been pushed back to the harbors and their entire MAW arsenal neutralized. In an act of desperation, as the final week of June eclipses the horizon, NATO naval assets order fire and bombardment upon Ronin Two, wiping out half of the MAWS before they can respond in a quick and timely departure. However, this results in a lot of Pyrrhic damage, destroying much of the upper eastside of Manhattan in the process, but continue fighting the desperate and losing battle. They do so until as late as July 20th… that is until the entire Greek–Yugoslavian air force backed by the entire Russian Navy shows up just off the shores of California.
Russian–Yugoslav Siege of San Francisco
See: Siege of San Francisco, Battle of Chicago, Zombie Pacification of Mainland US, Russian Invasion of Anchorage & Battle of San Francisco (May – July 2033/2034)
Yugoslavian attack helicopters launch guided missiles at RECON Unit-7 on the Golden Gate Bridge, c. 2034
May – Throughout May Japanese Ronin Two MAW formations lend crushing assistance to the ailing American resistance against the Zombie hordes. In response to the alarming developments in Manhattan, the second-largest MAW squadron on Earth is sent to Western America to take some of the pressure off of them by giving them an outstanding head start through “laser-carpet-bombings”, weapons systems the Japanese designed specifically to target and destroy nanotechnology (i.e., hapless victims of the Black Thirteen nano-virus), with one bombing run resulting in the destruction of thousands to tens of thousands of infected in one fell swoop. This gives the resistance enough of a window to conduct National Guard and United Militia clean-up exercises orchestrated to deliver the maximum effective response to the question of how to get rid of the infestation as quickly and wholly as possible. In the same month, a military coup led by General Valyn Zharkov seizes control of Moscow and executes Vladimir Putin. The government under Zharkov is much more overtly ultranationalistic and fascistic than Putin’s Russia. Zharkov’s Russia and Voltist Ukraine immediately begin plans for an invasion of the Western United States. June – With the bombing runs concluded by May 21st, the dezombification of the western mainland begins immediately afterwards. The ANG and Democracy divide the Western US up into 3 zones denoted by their proximity to whichever of the three central nuclei of the Antizombie Resistance Movement (ARM) they happened to be – Chicago, Memphis or San Francisco. Although they had a lot of area to cover, this was their sole challenge in mopping up what little 1% of the initial Zombies remained behind after the devastating anticryptid bombing measures undertaken by the Ronins, and the sole reason it takes ARM from May 22nd up until June 29th to reduce the cryptid threat level from yellow to green. The main reason ARM has to cease prioritizing of the antizombie countermeasures is the Balkanizing–Russian invasion of San Francisco on June 30th. July – On the morning of June 30th NORAD orders a no-fly zone over San Francisco, California after alerting residents to the presence of the entire 269-vessel-strong Russian navy off the shores of California. A citywide evacuation is underway by 7 AM, with RECON diplomatic assets inserted beforehand to coordinate and supervise – but it is too little too late. Oakland and Berkeley are quickly overrun, particularly due to their weakened state in the wake of the Outbreak. Fisherman’s Wharf is the first area of the city to fall under Russian bombardment. It isn’t until roughly an hour later, after the destruction of the westernmost suburban region of the City, the US forces discover this is a diversion. About 47 minutes into the attack Russian Spetsnaz deploy into and occupy Point Vista. With all of the available US military assets focused on western SF, Russian forces quickly shut down any possible land-based assistance to US infantry via occupation of Point Vista and the Golden Gate Bridge. AA emplacements are quickly erected in Western SF and the Marina District, sealing out any available air-based reinforcements with Multiple-Launch Propulsion Systems, Artillery and advanced laser-based AA systems. The Russian occupation of mainland San Francisco proceeds with perennial bombing runs up and down Market Street, and an infantry-based shut down of Union Square, the Tenderloin District, Haight-Ashbury, The Castro and Financial Districts in that order. When US forces dugout on Lower Market, Upper Mission and parts of the Financial District prove to be a greater resistance force than the Spetsnaz anticipate, artillery batteries erected on Alcatraz, in Oakland and Berkeley preeminent to the main assault ruthlessly bombard the aforementioned municipal regions. It is at around this point in time that NATO and RECON – in response to the pinned-down US forces in mainland San Francisco – deploy behind enemy lines in Point Vista to retake the Russian shut-down of the Golden Gate and neutralize Russian artillery. This endeavor, due to its extremely covert nature, catches the Russian forces by surprise and is a sweeping success for IF forces. Throughout the rest of the night, until the sun rises on the new day – July 1st – US forces remain on the defense. Due to the intense fighting in West Africa and the Middle-East, IF and NATO forces are hard-pressed to strategically allocate armed forces as tenderly and carefully as possible, and by 7 AM on July 1st, although US forces have suffered immense casualties, armored and airborne reinforcements arrive to deliver a crippling blow to Russian ground and naval assets. RECON assists in the evacuation and defense of Homeless Youths shelters from Russian belligerents and RECON air support assists in the process. District-by-district, RECON, NATO and IF forces shut out the Russian and Balkanizing forces, the commander of the Ukrainian Spetsnaz present during the Siege of San Francisco, Nikita Kravychko, and his right-hand man, Colonel Yuri Sokolov, make an attempt to escape from the war-zone, but they are tracked down and taken in for interrogation by RECON-Unit 7. The Siege lasts for another two weeks but is reduced mainly to a war of attrition. During the interrogation of Kravychko, Unit 7 discovers that the attack on California was just a small part of a much larger plan involving all of the Pact and Interpol and even the enigmatic ‘Shadow Hub’, the terrorist organization responsible for these ‘Shadow Police’ bioterrorists. The first step of the master plan to bring the mighty United States to its knees was a covert Russian invasion of Alaska with help from Interpol and this mysterious ‘Shadow’ organization. July 1st – RECON meets with NATO forces in Anchorage an hour after discovering this revelation from Kravychko. Sure enough, Russian-speaking men in uniform are spotted on the town’s outskirts. Covert and stealth operations are launched against these Russian ‘observation cells.’ The anti-insurgency operations are a massive success for RECON and NATO forces. After the debriefing at the RECON base a few miles outside of town NATO and the civilian staff at the base is discovered to have been infiltrated by pro-Interpol CIA moles. A bitter struggle erupts, after Russian and Peacekeeper forces reveal themselves within the very interior of the RECON HQ, to secure the base. It is here that the most devastating confrontation between RECON and cryptid hostiles unfolds. Eventually, the only solution becomes evident – evacuate and nuke the site from orbit. Capturing a smuggled Russian nuclear warhead, RECON and NATO forces evacuate – but not before losing 3 quarters of their initial forces. The base is destroyed, along with the cryptid threat. As they are arriving back in the mainland United States, RECON receives word from Shield Team that the bioterrorists have arrived in Chicago with power armor reminiscent of the IF-based ‘Boogeyman’ armor systems, only much more advanced. With their own men in the center of the battle zone, RECON changes course and they then head for Chicago.
Zombie Apocalypse Averted
See: The Zombic Crisis, Eugenics, Bioterrorism, Zombic Pacification of Mainland US, Operation STARMAN & Zombie Pacification (July 2033)
The Outbreak – What would become known as the Zombic War, also referred to just as frequently as the Zombic Crisis or Outbreak, would last for two-and-a-half years – from January 2031 until July 2033 – and would be the most terrifying part of the Third Global Confrontation for many. In July of 2033 it is discovered, through RECON moles in the CIA and Intelligence State, of information they had been hiding from RECON, the US, and humanity as a whole. An organization known only as the Shadow Hub, a secret society behind the CIA Shadow Committee and Britain’s GCHQ and SIS, as well as the power behind the Saudi Throne, Wall Street and the Bilderberg elites – operating from secret underground bases all across the planet – were the people the mysterious bioterrorist ‘Shadow Police’ represented. Not Islamic extremists or Communists this time around, but something even more difficult to extinguish than an ideal, but a mindless, violent force against all nations on Earth. The Shadow Hub represented the first ‘Anti-Nation’, and was a far greater threat than any one nation, any one terrorist organization, or any army with numbers of untold and unknown millions throughout Earth, and state of the art technology and bio-weapons. Obtaining a monopoly on the G13 and B13 weapons, they did not need MAWS, they did not need nukes, they didn’t even need to stake territory – all they needed was to destroy it. And that was their single-minded single greatest and most sought-after objective – to destroy all nations. Unfortunately for them, their plan at destabilizing the world indirectly by loosing a potentially apocalypse-scale biological weapon in key cities of the world’s most powerful region had been slowed about 10 months later, and by the time nearly 2 years had elapsed the Outbreak had been contained to small and concise quarantine zones in the aforementioned cities. The Shadow Hub had been thwarted… and angered. Could they be thwarted again? Their program of long-term Eugenics had not yet been thwarted, but it was under attack with their exposure by Omega Response. The Omegas believed in being the last line of defense against a Scorched Earth policy, which the Shadows represented as the penultimate manifestation thereof. Although nobody would believe them, certain elements within RECON claimed evidence had been found that implicated the SH in a vast thought-control conspiracy dating as far back as the Dark Ages, possibly even to the time of Roman domination of Europe and Asia and the Egyptian Pharaohs – of course back then they would have gone by a different name, but still been complicit in their agenda to enslave humanity. Fewer still thought evidence pointed to the SH making contact with another dimension through secret science programs – namely a dual program in Oak Ridge, TN and Flatwoods, WV. It was believed to be called Operation STARMAN. Only Unit 7 would come into contact with this revelation directly. Although the details are classified, it is believed to be connected to some of the more terrifying cryptid sightings, such as the Mothman, Flatwoods Monster, the Native-American mythical beast known as the Wendigo and the infamous and terrifying Jersey Devil. The Outbreak and indicative Apocalypse had been thwarted – but it had done its damage. Over 4,800,000 were robbed of their humanity, and their life, by the time it was said and done. It had dealt a crippling blow to the Russo–Italian foothold in central Europe, and Switzerland and Austria had been almost completely liberated. But due to the seeming ‘overreach’ of the United States into geopolitics, the nations of Europe were beginning to sympathize with Italy and Russia, and turn to the Pentagon and the OF for help against the US.
The Shadow War
See: Shadow Government, Battle of Chicago, Super-Fungus, Nanobot Virus, Fall of Kiev & Shadow Hub (October 2032 – July 2033)
October 2032/33 – In October of 2032 or 2033, shortly after the contagion was beginning to be overcome, it became common knowledge that the forces seemingly seen as separate regional entities formed for different purposes were in fact part of a stealth expansion by forces responsible for the rise of Hitler and the Nazis, that shared their views of European – and eventually global – domination. These entities in question are none other than the EU, NATO, Interpol and Bank for International Settlements. Through the latter, which had passed into Nazi hands during WWII (along with Interpol), they controlled the World Bank, World Trade Organization, and International Monetary Fund. Connecting these entities together into a singular machine for world domination and perpetuating centrist totalitarianism and populism across the world were the power elite – the Kings and Queens of Europe, the Saudi Royals, the CEOS and Chairmen of multi-national mega-corporations, former and currently-serving politicians and heads of state, including Zharkov and Roman – who had initiated a permanent convention in a secluded underground base in the Appalachian foothills as opposed to the annually-rotating meetings between various cities. This time they had enlisted the presence of the Interpol and NATO heads, as well as the presence of Roman and the incumbent Ukrainian President, Volt. November - January – Throughout the duration of this active ‘Shadow Hub’, the terrorist activities of the Shadow Police became more frequent and more direct. The first direct attack occurs on November 20th, in Bethlehem. Using high-impact EMP’s, advanced laser-guided artillery and directed-energy weaponry (and of course their state-of-the-art power armor), the insurgents shut down Israeli and IF fortifications in the city almost instantaneously. The defenders have to resort to guerrilla tactics and makeshift ‘blitzkriegs’ to push back the vastly-outnumbered yet ordinance-heavy belligerents. The second occurs 3 days later, in London. The Shadow insurgency bombs UK and SAS airbases and fortresses utilizing low-altitude high-impact surface-to-air ballistic missiles (HSBMs) deployed from hidden facilities beneath the city. Big Ben is also destroyed by an HSBM and Buckingham Palace is partially damaged. The attack takes the Royal Armed Forces by sweeping surprise and – although vastly superior in numbers – proceed to fight an uphill battle against the insurgency. In addition to being blindsided, the insurgents also plant moles within the UK command substructure and the active armed forces, further complicating their resistance efforts. While the entirety of the UK loyalists throw their weight and brace back against the invaders in a last stand at Downing St, the Italian forces see this as a perfect opportunity to take down the United Kingdom once and for all – and they would have, had it not been for an identical insurgency launched against Rome mere hours later. Throughout the rest of the month and into January, the British and Italians brace against the ostensibly interminable attacks and tricks utilized by the insurgents, including a seemingly endless supply of drone weapons and advanced technology, until finally the illusive belligerents fall back and leave the respective victim cities in ruins, vulnerable to one another and ripe for renewed warfare and bloodshed, on January the 17th. February - April – The next, perhaps most devastating, attack occurred on February 11th, 2033. Utilizing HSBMs loaded with raw nanobots jury-rigged by the insurgents from the original B13, only without the fungus medium used to transform its victims into walking weapons, simultaneous attacks are launched in Paris, Barcelona, Geneva, Madrid, St. Petersburg FL, Russian St. Petersburg, Bangor, Phoenix, Houston, El Paso, Little Rock and Memphis. Instead of creating zombies, like its fungal medium would’ve done, it merely destroyed the nervous and immune systems, replacing them with volatile chemicals created from the rapidly-replicating nanobots that transformed the hosts into ticking and walking time-bombs. They would explode and the chemical would cause a chain-reaction rippling domino-effect. So if 10 people died, 100 people died, and then, if it wasn’t contained quickly enough, as many as 10,000 could die. Civilian and military alike were targets, and within 24 hours of the attack, all 12 cities had been shut down and occupied by the insurgents. In an unlikely twist of fate, however, Russian–led forces deploy with a fresh batch of MAWS and wreak havoc upon the assailants, with assistance from NATO. They hold out longer than expected, with the stragglers not being pushed from the last city (St. Petersburg in Russia) until April 16th. May - June – Unfortunately, the presence of Russian and NATO MAWS in Florida only encourages Pact forces to begin planning a joint-invasion and occupation of the United States, which leads to the Manhattan Campaign in June and the Siege of San Francisco later that month. When officials in Moscow refuse to withdraw the killer robots, and NATO officials in Brussels likewise refuse to do the same, the United States, United Kingdom, Japan and the entire Independence bloc recall the entirety of their armed forces and put them on high-alert with possible orders to nuke Moscow off the map or, even worse, launch their own MAW force into the aforementioned regions. It isn’t soon after that the opposing forces leave the United States. Although this immediate crisis is ostensibly averted, more issues arise later on. July – The Third Global Conflict begins to get really nasty after Pact forces begin to become desperate. The terrorist attack in Kiev sparks a chain reaction after the destruction is contained. Shortly thereafter, the insurgents launch their biggest assaults yet. Kiev and Chicago – utilizing over 100,000 Shadow Police apiece – are shut-down by the insurgents in under 2 hours. Amid the chaos, the Ukrainian dictator Volt is overthrown and executed in the streets. The Battle of Chicago marks one of the most intense battles the American home land will ever see. Battle of Chicago – When RECON arrives the insurgents had already shut down half of the city and US military were fighting a losing battle. Leading up to the battle, throughout the day – July 1st – the US military began arriving in the neighborhoods between O’Hare and Bucktown, and then from there to The Loop, and from there again all the way down to Chinatown. What NORAD had been warning Chicago local law enforcement, counterterrorism and military forces against was a possible amphibious assault from Lake Michigan, consisting of consecutive strikes on The Loop, Prairie District and Chinatown, as well as a possible attack in Douglas, Streeterville, the Gold Coast, Bucktown and Lincoln Park. What intelligence authorities did not know (or purposely withheld) was that SH forces had hijacked a plane inbound for O’Hare International Airport and the staff therein were completely unaware. The plane lands successfully and by this time the 62 insurgents had forcibly purged the crew and passengers from Flight 187, and another 56 had done the same on Flight 292. The two planes landed successfully at O’Hare terminals, and within minutes the concourses had been bombed and the airport shut down. The US rapid-reaction team of approximately 210 soldiers on sight in O’Hare responded immediately, fully engaged in a firefight to liberate the airfield less than 10 minutes later. A third bomb is located and successfully diffused, a warhead with the capacity to take out the entire northwestern portion of the city. About 5 minutes after O’Hare is secured, laser-guided bombardments precipitate upon Lincoln Park, The Loop, West Loop, Gold Coast, Streeterville, New Eastside, and every neighborhood along the Lakeside between China Town and Hyde Park faces an invasion of between 1,500 and 9,800 troops depending on area size. With over 110,700 soldiers, the 36,296-strong (36,330 before the O’Hare Attacks) US defenses do not look to be facing very favorable circumstances by the beginning of the next hour. The heaviest concentration of fighting occurs in West Loop, Loop, and Lincoln Park. A heavy fortification of 750 US Marines in Printer’s Row establishes a bulwark against a force of about 1,000 Shadow troops, locking down all entries into the district with over 100 tanks and armored vehicles. This is disproportionate to the total number of about 600 armored vehicles present during the battle – leaving only about 482 to be distributed amongst the Loop, West Loop, Lincoln Park and Gold Coast, with possibly some extras for single-use in Streeterville, New Eastside, South Loop and the Prairie District if they’re lucky. The subsequent turn of events prove they are not. By about 6:30 PM, the Marines had successfully locked down West Loop, United Center Park, Noble Square, East Village and Wicker Park. However, virtually all of the city center – The Loop, Streeterville, New Eastside and Lincoln Park (as well as questionable reconnaissance activities by insurgents in Bucktown) – remained embroiled in ostensibly ceaseless fighting. Although by between 7:15 and 8:00 the U.S. forces had whittled away the invasion force by about 15,000 soldiers, they had on the downside lost around 6,000 themselves, with the death toll rising. By 7:30 the defenders had erected a bulwark in the southeastern end of The Loop, aided by the victors from Printer’s Row and survivors from the Prairie-South Loop region. Around 5,500 Marines stamp out a forward-assault base with most of the heavy weaponry and armor positioned in a strategic line running the entirety of Wells St. and flanking off about 550 ft. down Lake St. to the north and Van Buren to the south. The rest of Lake St. consisted of spare munitions, equipment and a makeshift armory, allowing the Marines to quickly brake ranks, grab a refill, and return to Wells in the event of an attack (asymmetric skirmishes were occurring roughly every 15-20 minutes at this point, mostly unmanned recon drones but occasionally a strike team of insurgents would launch an attack). Wabash Ave., at least three-quarters of the way down, was part of a makeshift command post, with the central headquarters set up at the John C. Kluczynski Federal Building on S. Dearborn St. occupying 26 of the 42 floors. The remainder of Wabash and Van Buren, and several abandoned buildings and complexes located therein and around the State St. area were converted into a makeshift hospital for wounded soldiers and refugees. At around 10:15 the SH launch a full-on assault, with artillery and a grenadier battalion of 1,000 positioned on the CTA rail taking the brunt of the blow. The front changes multiple times throughout the hour, with Allied forces at one point being pushed all the way into the park, but eventually the defenders manage to push the enemy out to Wacker, and after another hour of intense fighting – RECON arrives. With RECON assistance, the Allies manage to push insurgent forces across the bridge to Canal St. It is at this point the SH launch their final, most desperate, and most dangerous biological warfare attack yet… At 11:38 AM, Chicago falls victim to 18 consecutive B13 attacks in the 18 formerly-most populous districts. By this point the entire city had been evacuated, by 9:48 to be exact. The damage is done, however, the attacks proving brutally effective against US forces. They don’t stand a chance as their forces are dissolved from the inside-out by the virus. Now facing a two-pronged assault, Shadow Police on one side and zombies on the other, the US forces realize they are going to lose. RECON gets as many out of the city as possible and prepares a contingency plan – hijack the WA nukes hidden beneath Chicago, activate them, target the city, and get the hell out. UNIT-7 does just this, penetrating into the underground facility, and evacuating via airlift. The Battle of Chicago ends with the entire city and the infestation therein, being wiped out.

March – Irish-backed Scottish forces, fighting a protracted campaign vying for control over Yorkshire in England since the beginning of hostilities over 5 years ago, launch their greatest incursion into the West Yorkshire Urban Area yet. Utilizing hundreds of tanks, thousands of Armor units, hundreds of aircraft, hundreds of artillery and rocket systems, and over 100,000 soldiers from Scotland and Ireland both, the Irish Military launched a several-pronged attack into the area mainly focused in Leeds. Following a series of IRA suicide-bombings killing over 600,000 – Scots-Irish forces are met with equal resistance from NATO forces – 70% of which are composed of British, Canadian and American Warfighters. Although the attack begins with a flourish – the Irish Defense is called back to Glasgow, Ireland just mere days from completely taking the city of Leeds, in preparation for a new campaign and strategy – raising fear and suspicion in London and Washington that the Irish and their Pact allies may be preparing for something even more devastating. NATO convenes in London for planning and counterterrorism operations against the IRA, possibly involving an invasion of Glasgow and Dublin. April – When NATO’s globalist forces realized they may in fact lose the Manhattan Campaign, and were being pushed back, an effort to appropriate Special Weapons Assets from the United States and into NATO hands was put in motion. The US Independence Orbital Defense Network began construction in the early 2010’s beyond the eyes of the public, and was initially a preliminary emergency defense system designed to counter the possibility of Russian expansion beyond Ukraine (following Russia’s annexation of Crimea) and was still currently under construction but was ready-and-able to be used against targets. In late April, NATO collaborated with Russian forces to conduct a raid operation on the orbital facility. When the weapon was used against a US military base in Malta (effectively rendering the Island uninhabitable and resulting in the deaths of millions) on May 19th, 2034 – 48 hours later RECON assembles a space operation, the second in the history of warfare (after the NATO–Russian operation to occupy the Independence), and deploys to the station in a captured Soyuz. May 22nd – RECON UNIT-7 deployed onto Independence on May 22nd at 2:25 AM and was met with immediate resistance. The station was occupied by 27 Special Forces operatives – 19 Russians and 8 French rebels – but managed to pull through and make it to the firing control center before the weapon was able to successfully fire on New York City – its next target. Had UNIT-7 failed to prevent the Independence from firing – it would have leveled New York City and practically erased Long Island from the face of the Earth. This would have plunged the world economy – and the world as it stood – into chaos, leaving a power vacuum previously held by North America, allowing Russia, the UN and Interpol to seize absolute power. After Unit-7 succeeds, the orbital platform is deactivated, putting a wrench in their strategy. The Russian and NATO–Interpol forces, although having different methods and slightly different goals, had one thing in common: they wanted the Independence Front and the U.S. gone.
Euro–Spaniard invasion of the U.S.A.
See: Balkans Invasion, Euro–Danish Invasion of Eastern US, & Russian–Spaniard Invasion of Eastern US (April – October 2034)
Danish and Spanish MAWS deploying over Ft. Lauderdale, c. 2034
April – On April 30th Spain and the straggling Russian forces utilize the full extent of their machine armies to launch an invasion and occupation of Croatia and the Balkans. Ukraine is pushed back by NATO forces by mid-May, and the Balkan occupation is brought to an invasion followed by France in June and July respectively. In June the Russian–Spaniard assault force invades Germany and the Netherlands, with the sole objective to work as much destruction and devastation in as little time as possible. With the Pact maintaining a firm stranglehold on Europe via the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as parts of Northern France and Luxembourg, and the conflict between the EU Benelux Battlegroup and COSECTOR thus reduced down from full-scale war to scattered, erratic skirmishes that consisted of mostly individual, isolated events… the MAW-led Russian–Spanish beast; and NATO’s Norwegian and Danish MAW force both see an opportunity for its most daring move yet. August – August 15th, 2034; Russia and Spain, followed by the entire NATO bloc of the EU (excluding Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg), Denmark’s Greenland taskforce and Norway (each faction intent on toppling Democracy before the other), launch the most devastating attack in military history upon the United States. The Conquistadors had returned!, as the Spanish King announced triumphantly, only this time they were striking not by sea, but by sky. Like the burning lightning bolts of Zeus the MAWS fell from the sky and attacked locations all along America’s Eastern Seaboard. At 7:43 AM Fort Lauderdale, Florida was attacked by a staggering 173 Spanish- and Danish-aligned MAWS. IF forces deployed in an effort to stymie the assault, but since most of their MAWS had been destroyed during the Manhattan Campaign they had to – terrifyingly – resort to old-fashion military tactics to combat the mechanized monsters. At 4:14 and 7:52 AM on August 16th, 351 Spanish and Russian MAWS deploy into Norfolk and Virginia Beach in the Old Dominion. With only a few dozen MAWS of their own to lend support to the ground forces, the United States – abandoned by the Pentagon, and unable to call for support from NATO – fights an uphill battle throughout August and into September. RECON does all they can, but eventually the Russians – backed by Spanish and Danish MAWS – manage to push the 500,000-strong force beyond the Appalachian Mountains. It is here that the American, Indian, British and Japanese joint-force makes its final stand against the invaders.

Norwegian ‘Asgardian’ Walker – the largest, most heavily-armed of the human-operated MAW units to see combat in WWIII,
c. 2034 – Appalachian foothills, United States
September – September 2nd, 2034; RECON forces make a stand in the city of Knoxville and the surrounding municipalities of Forge, Newark, Mountain City and Sevier City – the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Appalachian Mountains. It is here the Allies draw their line in the sand against the enemy forces, and having taken down 262 of the total 524-strong Danish–Norwegian MAW forces to deploy along the Eastern Seaboard. With 90 MAWS in Knoxville, 59 in Forge, 65 in Sevier City, 47 in Newark a total of 3 MAWS make it to Mountain City – the last of the cities group in proximity to the Park. Coincidentally, this happened to be the region with the highest concentration of RECON forces. Within just a few hours RECON manages to eliminate the MAWS, but then just as they are about to secure the area – UN forces show up with Anti-MAW Tanks and begin eliminating the MAWS. At first the UN helps RECON, but then it becomes apparent they were merely here representing the interests of the Shadow Hub. The SH and UN forces had been working hand-in-hand the entire time to execute a strategy that would end with them as the victors of the conflict, by simply playing the warring factions against one another – and then striking when they were at their weakest. In the region that eventually becomes known as “Dragon’s Mouth”, a Final Stand occurs in which the straggling and vastly-outnumbered 100,000-strong US forces and 311-strong RECONs take their stand against a multimillion-strong UN and Chinese invasion force spearheaded by more than 100 Anti-MAWs… directed against primarily infantry and light armor. It goes down in history as one of the most one-sided fights in military history, surpassed only by the Battle of Thermopylae during the Greco-Persian Wars of BCE. Although the Allies lose the battle, and the UN autocracy regains control of the United States for the first time in almost a decade, they continue to wage guerrilla warfare against the Occupation well into the 2050’s (the first decade of interplanetary colonization) and even by some accounts into the early 2070’s (the first decade of extra-solar colonization) under the moniker; ‘Union Minutemen’.
USS ‘Montana’ (in this picture under Irish control) – the last dreadnought to see combat in human history, as well as the most powerful c. 10/29/34 – Strait of Dover; Calais, France
On September 10th Irish Defense Forces launch a protracted campaign against Berlin – which alongside The Hague, London, Brussels, Oslo and Copenhagen were the last six governments in open opposition to the Irish and the rogue Russian forces fighting for Roman long after the fall of Zharkov – in what came to be called the Second Battle of Berlin. Although it is far bloodier than its WWII counterpart, the Berliners quickly repulse and weaken the invaders through attrition, much better equipped and coordinated than the Germany under the shadow of the Nazis 100 years earlier. By October 3rd the Invasion of Berlin has been repulsed with assistance from the recently-liberated Norwegian and Swedish military. On October 12th, just over a week later, the Glasgow-Dublin military junta collapses. October – In late October, supported by Denmark and (primarily) the European Union, the U.K. leads the invasion of Ireland. Simultaneously, most of the Euro-bloc military braces against the Russians, repulsing the Irish–Russian military from France by early October, and the last of the Irish naval forces are surrounded and, with assistance from the last soldier of Unit-7, board and informally occupy the USS Montana and HMS Prince of Wales in the Strait of Dover between France and Britain, in the final battle of the Third Global Conflict – the Siege of Calais. Losing the battleship and the supercarrier, Ireland formally surrenders and WWIII ends.
