OOC - To register!

This is basically a Pre-War Alternative History Fallout RP. It will have something for everyone and I will try to make it fair and enjoyable for everyone. To find out more about the roleplay, read the OOC if you'd like or lurk and enjoy!


Governmental Palace, Riyadh, United Arabia

King Mohammed Ebrahim sat at his desk as he completed some paperwork before his secretary bought in the daily dossier for him to read about the world's current events. The King said "thank you, I'll read this immediately." as he took a sip from a cup of drink. He proceeded to open the dossier and read through the days events. He saw that people were rioting in a village in the PRC due to food shortages. German and Soviet leadership met to discuss better relations in Moscow. It seemed that with each passing day there was good and bad news. Most of the bad news came from China under the leadership of a new chairman. While the King had been a soldier and led the Oil Platform Wars he had never led a country into battle. He was nervous as about any one else to be quite frank.

He turned the dossier to the next page to read about news of technological advancements of the Arabian army. Development of heavy tanks and tank destroyers powered by fusion were going well. Slightly behind schedule but it was no big problem for right now. The Arabian Army was equipped with a derivative of the most modern American tank yet and some of the best German fusion tanks.

Jerusalem Government Center, Jerusalem, United Arabia

The Governor of Jerusalem decided to host a Mr. Handy give away to needy families in Jerusalem who needed additional help around the house. Many had showed for the event and it was quite the social event. Many of Jerusalem's poor showed up in rented or loaned well-tailored suits issued by the government or traditional/cultural religious wear if Jewish or Muslim. There was a free buffet of food which included kosher, halal and regular options as the country was multi faith. A band played "Dmitri Shostakovich - Waltz No. 2" in true classical form. The Governor of Jerusalem came from a conference room and took the stage while beginning to talk.

He begun a short speech with these words "Hello, shalom, salamu-alaykum. I'm glad to see you all here today for the give away of Mr. Handys. I hope so far that everyone here has enjoyed the festival and I am pleased to announce that this is the 5th annual giveaway we've had so far. We plan on expanding this to Brazil and various other countries around the world through United Arabian charity missions in other countries. Once the liberation of China is complete by our forces, we will hope to expand there and help the poor and needy, the starving there as we help the people here."

United Arabian street, Riyadh, United Arabia

A crowd gathered outside a TV store to watch the Reichsminister der Propangada of Nazi Germany give a speech. He spoke in both English and German trying to channel the energy of Josef Goebbels speaking "TODAY! The German people stand with our allies against the dirty communist filth in China. We will not stand down as they make attacks against the peace-loving world. On behest Der Fuhrer. I declare that there will be Total War and this is what the German people want! We want no less! We will not surrender! Beijing will fall! Hong Kong will fall! The world will see the might of our country and our alliance! They will realize they awakened a sleeping bear with their aggressive actions!" to the applause of many in the audience.

Palácio da Alvorada/Presidential Palace, Brasília, Republic of Brazil

In the residency of the executive branch, Emilia de la Ardiente was keeping herself busy. Namely with all the reports coming in from both public...and private sources at that. Things were slowly turning downward, even if the world wasn't seeing things. The Chinese invasion of Alaska had ended in failure, surprising those whom assumed the fighting would be over in a year not last about ten years at that. While everyone in America was claiming this war a great victory for liberty and democracy - the facts were telling otherwise.

Canada, a former ally of the United States had been completely taken over, under martial law, with a 'poll and referendum' for annexation passing with high approval. Things in America were either great or bad depending on where you lived and which politician you supported. A few locations were doing fine as usual, while a few states were under martial law - with a few reports of people being shot by military personnel. War had a habit of bringing out the worst in Humanity - in a way, what had once happened almost a century and a half ago in Europe was now being repeated in America. While the war was doing good work in boosting the popularity of politicians at home and abroad - it was wasting resources and fuel, which the USA didn't have much of either. If things continued as they did - the Americans would run out, before their vaunted success in fusion and nuclear power could get things running.

As soon as Emilia got into her office, she quickly established a secure connection to the Council - using a computer that had been made by RobCo. Granted the thing had been stripped open and then later remade and rebranded under a local company - in the fear that RobCo hadn't installed a backdoor or any other bug that would enable America to spy on them. Ironically, some labs found a way to almost increase the efficiency of some - almost like they were made to be faulty in a way, no doubt so the economic elite could continue milking the people from their money.

"Asset. Secure. Amazon-Seven-Five-Two. Connection established..." she spoke, and wrote at the same time. "This is Elder..."

"Things are critical. The Americans are on the warpath, there is little the Chinese can do, beyond throw men at the incoming tide. The Germans, the Arabians are eager to put the blame elsewhere - for the economy, the lack of fuel, oil, everything and more. We still have no clue on where their nuclear submarines are either. If the Chinese get desperate...they might end us all..." spoke Hunter, in secret the highest military General in Brazil.

"Have we detected any of them in our waters?" she replied.

"Negative. We are still trying to reach a compromise with both sides. The Chinese are starving for fuel - the Americans won't share. The Chinese unleashed a plague on the Americans - the Americans are eager to glass every Chinese or Asian-American they can get their hands on...it is a mess..." replied Shaman, a woman like Emilia, except her field was in diplomatic affairs.

"How many are we getting?" asked Emilia, turning her attention to another person in their chatspace.

"At least a thousand, more coming every day. The Americans aren't trying to even hide this. They are rounding up anyone whom has a Chinese background, parent, grandparent or cousin. Some of those captured aren't even from China - just anyone looking Asian. They are desperate. Too desperate. What is happening to our world?" asked Tracker - the Director of the Internal Intelligence Service or in a way the public face of the Council.

Emilia rubbed her face at that question - several decades ago, many would have looked at Brazil and laughed at the idea of them being the leaders of democracy and liberty. In a way, she questioned the thought too. Many saw America - the Land of Liberty, Home of the Brave and Free - as the destination for those seeking a better life and chance for their family and themselves. But America...it had changed, been corrupted from within. Slowly over the years. Many in America didn't see anything wrong with their government, at least not those whom didn't have a need to seek out answers. Same was the situation in China. In a way, if she was to compare America, Germany and China now - she would be almost hard-pressed to find the difference, if she was blindfolded and told to separate them by fact alone.

As things were developing, predictions were estimating total collapse of the American economy - unless they abandoned oil completely and went over to a more renewable source of energy. Granted that was easier said than done, as America had been so corrupted by their economic elite - that they were willing to drive things off a cliff, just to maintain their power. Brazil had a chance to, a chance to become the leader of the free world - but not yet, they needed more time and effort. It was hard to be both ally and rival at the same time - without being caught playing such a game. The people who fled to Brazil for a new life had done much to make this place their home and benefit the Republic in many ways - it showed still that democracy wasn't dead, that decency and the right to life was a cause worth fighting for.

As the alternative was - Project Last Prayer and Project Iron Tyrant - was the only thing they had left against the approaching storm. Brazil...needed to stop this madness, or else nobody would be able to claim victory in this war.

WASHINGTON FREE POST
"Democracy dies without us."
August 1st, 2077

PROTESTS CONTINUE IN WASHINGTON DC
Image
Washington, DC Fire Department Truck 27 from Station 12 continues spraying on a Fallon's Department store due to rioters causing arson.

In Washington today, there is a subtle air of confusion as national guard soldiers patrol the streets in armored vehicles and soldiers in power armor stand outside banks, Super Duper Markets and other places of interest as life attempts to return to normal after the riots that took place in DC overnight. Men and women from various social classes took to burning department stores as well as places of government in response to allegations of spying on American citizens.

The US Government denied in a official statement to the Washington Free Press that there was no such spying program taking place here in the continental United States. People wonder if the various RobCo robots and terminals that have been produced heavily by the United States have been bugged in order to listen for communists or other "dismissive" anti-American elements. We will keep you up to date on this news.




AMERICAN LABOR CAMPS?
Image
Secret photo taken by Freedom Rights International outside of Turtledove Detention Camp which is reported to be a labor camp for Oriental peoples.

Point Lookout State Park is notorious for having plantations from the 1800s and before as well as famous beach boardwalks. Good food at affordable prices. Off the road of a seemingly innocent road lays a camp with barbed wire and has US military trucks entering and exiting every day. Guard posts also accompany the location. A brief look at the sign says "Turtledove Detention Camp" and before we could get closer to examine the situation. We saw Oriental people being hurdled off a US Army truck like cattle and being beaten by US army soldiers. That's all we could see before we were approached by soldiers in Power Armor and requested to leave or else we'd be shot. Our cameras were confiscated so the only photo we have to publish is the secret one above from Freedom Rights International.

Prince Lemuel Frank Ebrahim, great-great grandson of holocaust survivor and United Arabia Queen Anne Frank and United Arabia King Lukas Ebrahim criticized the camps in the USA which reminded him of the camps that his great great grandmother could of been sent to had she had not been given a visa to stay in United Arabia. Jewish agencies in United Arabia also resounded this statement by the 4th Jewish Prince of United Arabia. The King of United Arabia Mohammed Ebrahim refused to comment on the situation as of current. We have reached out to the PRC as well as Brazil and Nazi Germany for further comment.




Remembering Anne Frank
Image
Anne Frank, aged 12 at the time of the photograph on the left and 80 in the photograph in the 2000s on the right.

As the year 2079 approaches. Anne Frank will turn 150. In her brief years hiding from the Nazi Occupation forces in Holland up until 1944 in which they were caught but somehow escaped and made way to the United Arabia embassy where they claimed political asylum. She arrived in United Arabia in 1945 and completed her diary in 1950 while serving as Governess of Jerusalem under United Arabia. Her Diary went on to be a best seller that told the world about the Holocaust and various other events that forced the Jews to move out of their European homes. Later in life, her service as Queen to the United Arabian throne gave a great light as she stood up for victims of prosecution in Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union as well as blacks pre-Civil Rights era in the USA. She went on to write many other books that were best sellers on Communism and fascism as well as various philosophical points.

There is a lot in her original diary and her later books that we can learn from as we witness another Holocaust happening against the Chinese people in America. There is without a doubt in my mind that there is a family just like the Franks probably in Boston or DC hidden in a attic trying to avoid the horrendous labor camps in America. We should open our hearts to those fleeing the camps of Europe and America. We should not close our doors.

Riyadh Square, Riyadh, United Arabia

A event under heavy security by the Schutzstaffel as well as Gestapo and United Arabian police as well as governmental protection agencies was taking place in the famous Riyadh. In attendance were numerous high-ranked members of the Nazi German government and the United Arabian government. The event taking place was to decorate the German soldiers and Arabian soldiers for valor during the Oil Platform Wars and for the destruction of the Chinese Naval Base in the Indian Ocean. The event was to be highly televised with the latest cameras recording every move and radio stations reporting on each event that happened.

Soldiers from both armies stood at attention in their respective dress uniforms. The Arabian platoon that served alongside the German division was a mixture of Jews and Muslims as well as Christians. Whether this was intended irony directed at the Germans by the then-division leader (now King) Mohammed Ebrahim is unknown. The King as well as the German Ambassador to United Arabia came out to a stage which was festooned in United Arabia and Nazi German flags.

King Mohammed Ebrahim begun speaking "It is with great pleasure to award both the German and Arabian heroes of the Oil Platform Wars for their valor and great service to Fatherland, Kingdom and The Fuhrer as well as King. We can hope that the friendship between the Arabian and German government lasts for another thousand years." to thunderous applause from the audience. The King and the Ambassador walked to the presented soldiers flanked by three men who held pillowcases with awards on them. The king extended his hand to Heinrich Neueller a Feldwebel with the 116th Panzergrenadier division and shook it as he pinned the highest medal of United Arabia on Heinrich's chest. A move he repeated as he went down the line. The German ambassador did the same with the Arabian platoon presented awarding them a various range of medals ranging from the War Merit Cross all way up to the Knights Cross.

Finally, the last award ceremony was to begin. The German Ambassador presented the German Order to King Mohammed Ebrahim. After the final ceremony was completed. A gathered Wehrmacht band proceeded to play "Helenen-Marsch" and some United Arabian marching music. Finally, the day ended with a banquet in each soldiers honor hosted in the extravagant Riyadh Square Palace.

Let us have a dagger between our teeth, a bomb in our hands, and an infinite scorn in our hearts. - Benito Mussolini following the Nazi betrayal of 1944


Il Duce's Palace, Tripoli, Italia in Exile

The song of Funiculì, Funiculà filled the rooms of the Palace, the once old song to represent the first funicular cable car to Mount Vesuvius now represents a sorrow. It was not played in a cheerful manner, but now a slow sad one. But it slowly started to build up, the instruments joining in one at a time to slowly build up greater with purpose. The song of happiness and fun was now a song of war, to represent what was lost, all due to the German menace that betrayed them one hundred thirty three years ago. The hatred was never gone, the fury was never gone, nor were their ideals. The Nazis twisted the true intent of Fascismo, they were the frauds which Italia should've all those years ago. But now, it is over and done. The Italian people survived against the German wave of hell and armor, but now were stuck in a land of Arabs and Muslims, though they were long in the majority of the population ever since the great evacuation of Italia late 1944. There were still those that didn't accept the ideals.

Of course, it was not the Germans alone that were the problems of Italia, what was the true problem were the Arabs to the east. Surprised that once a Jewish Queen and Christian King took power in the overwhelmingly large Muslim majority nation it should've fallen apart, along with the large influx of refugees forced upon them and the several dozens of ethnic groups desiring self-determination such as the Turks, Egyptians and East Africans, perhaps the Kurds. They always seem to be fighting one side or another, yet always seem to survive. Perhaps the Italians should learn a thing or two from them, now being exiles from their own homeland, it was possible to draw the connection. But in the end, their disgusting state gave those within the once colonial Libya a purpose to fight for, albeit loose and constantly set back by the steps made by the party to incorporate the Muslim population that was spearheaded by the long deceased Italo Balbo during the Second World War but it was still taking its sweet time.

These thoughts were suddenly jarred by the entrance of General Caino Alfano, Paolo Balbo turned to the man with interest. It wasn't too many times he would receive visitors to his Palace. "Yes? What is it Alfano, usually you don't come around here without at least two stacks of paper in your hands." The General ignored the remark jabbed at him, taking the folder under his shoulder and placing it on the table, "We finally have a plan to restore Italia and take it back from the German traitors." Opening the folder, Balbo looked down at the detailed plans. Most of it involved the naval invasions of Sicily and Sardinia, which made sense since it would allow a greater use of their airbases and possibly get members of the Italian Resistance to rise up, even after all these years Italia still survived in the hearts of those few left, but mostly those tired of the rule of the horrid Nazi regime. He remembered when the Nazis turned their death camps into museums or even worse, genetic test labs, they were ruthless and something that needed to end. Yes, the Italians too believed in the need to be superior to others, but doing it to such an extent? No longer.

Balbo looked back to the map, it did however had many things that interested him. Which involved communicating with resistance movements in Europe beforehand and having them coordinate strikes on Wehrmacht positions, raid armories and police stations, rise up in a full rebellion. There were even possibilities of communicating with members of the Nazi leadership, those with ambition to rule Germany as their own, these people were to be looked into closely in the hopes they could scrounge enough support to contest the German loyal leadership and any elements of the loyal Wehrmacht. Though, another distant but possible course of action was to use the very SS to their advantage, corrupt the leadership so the SS will take over, the Wehrmacht would not enjoy such a group in charge and may engage themselves in a counter-coup, only leading to the civil war they desire to leave an opening in Italia. Though, intelligence was still rather low, it has been long since Italia had planned something so large scale, the only thing was that of a civilian matter creating the needs to sustain larger amounts of life in Libya, which now leads them to where they are today. But a military plan? One to liberate the Italian people from the oppressive hand of the German Reich? They needed more time, more dissent to rise through the German ranks and the war with China to continue and expand. If the German forces are stuck in China and is forced to send more there to subdue them, then the Italian Army may be ready to commit itself to an invasion. They had no one to trust but themselves, the Arabians were supporting them but for how long before another dagger is placed into their backs, they needed to walk the path alone. For alone can they burn the horrid Germanic Barbarian once more from the very streets of Rome!

Executive Diplomatic Train, Cairo, United Arabia

A secret 4:00 o'clock atomic-train took off from a train depot in Cairo heading towards Tripoli. The train came out of the depot as it rode past some of Cairo's iconic sights. Onboard was the Arabian ambassador to Libya. This was a diplomatic mission specifically ordered by the King of United Arabia. It was the hope that relations could be restored somehow despite the first United Arabian king promising Italian Libya it's rights secretly.

The train pulled out of Cairo around 5:00 or so. The Arabian Ambassador to Libya Wadul Al-Enzi sat in the private room onboard the train as he waited for his arrival in Italian Libya. The government of Italian Libya was informed that a train with diplomatic status would be pulling into Tripoli to discuss diplomacy along in addition to other topics.

In addition to the ambassador was his Italian interpreter and numerous other staff. Wadul decided to head to the dining car and enjoy some medium-rare Arabian steak as well as a glass of Nuka Cola followed by some Ice Cream.

Port of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Republic of Brazil

As it had been once in America with the statue of Liberty, whenever people trying to find a new life arrived in Brazil they would gaze their eyes upon the statue of Christ the Redeemer at the peak of the Corcovado mountain. In the years since, it had become an almost symbol that Brazil showed to those without any hope or mercy from their homeland - 'an open embrace to those desiring a new start'. The atmosphere in the streets of Rio de Janeiro was much different than those in Berlin or Washington D.C - whereas one was gripping with riots and others with energy crisis - the mood in place was almost celebratory.

As the song of Latin America was being played from many radios - a very different sight than many whom had left their homes had last seen; most of the arrivals happening to be Asian or Asian-Americans at that. Unable to stay any longer in their home and be at risk of being arrested for crimes they didn't commit or in the way of a war-machine that was showing no mercy.

In a way, even their method of welcoming people was different - as smiles and laughs welcomed those whom had been stuck at sea for almost weeks; instead of miniguns and dogs watching their every way. The Ministry of Internal Affairs was already processing people at a rapid pace at that - having plenty of experience of managing large amount of people: providing temporary housing to those that lacked it, a temporary job if their previous profession was occupied or immediately shuffling their data right to the Ministry of Economy and Development. In a way - the majority of Asians arriving would themselves too be surprised to see how colorful was Rio de Janeiro - as one could hear people conversing in English, Spanish, Portuguese yet also Mandarin and German at that. Brazil itself being a mixture of the old urban tight streets and buildings on top of each other and the new urban clear silver and white at that. A patchwork that came way to an almost colorful butterfly that was beautiful to look and wasn't afraid to spread it's wings.

Such was the sight for Kimberly Lee and her two daughters - a former doctor having been forced to flee America, her home and her friends due to her grandparents having come from China and thus she had been labeled as 'uncertain'. A situation that would have resulted in increased surveillance, likely demotion in her job or outright having her home searched by the police without needing a warrant or reason even. Thus before things got worse - she had gotten what money she had from her bank, sold her home and gotten onto the earliest boat to Brazil. The way here had been mostly on a mental level than a physical one - spending a week at sea with no idea if the Sino-American War might affect them or if the US Navy might start searching passenger ships for any suspected 'Communist Spies'.

Although, none of that happened - and once she stepped down from the ship into Rio de Janeiro, holding onto the hands of her two kids, she was almost blinded by the colors around her. The clothing was so much more liberal, the music much more pop and the people looked different everywhere she looked. Five people playing dice, three of them black, one white and one hispanic - while three women nearby danced to some music, that sounded a mixture of German and Spanish.

"Hello...welcome to Brazil..." heard Kimberly, before she had a woman with long-brown hair and wearing a black dress at that, welcome her to Brazil at that - her guide and host in this new land and new future.




Republic of Brazil

Despite ten years of war, the Republic of Brazil have yet again gone live on Radio Freedom, in their yearly speech to call an end to the Sino-American War heading into it's eleventh year in warfare. The voice of Emilia de la Ardiente once more being heard across Brazil, America, Europe and Asia at that. Translated into their respective languages - although none could mistaken her voice or her personality behind those words:

"Hello, People of Earth. Eleven years of this stupid war and how are things going for us all? How many people have been killed, because we have been more eager to act like a bunch of spoiled kids instead of adults? Once it had been the Chinese unwilling to compromise, certain in their victory - how now the tables have turned and everybody is eager to gang up on the Asian Tiger. Some say this Tiger is in decay and deserves to be put down. I warn us yet again, that this Tiger has teeth - just as the Tiger was warned that the Eagle had sharp claws."

"I say yet again - it is time we put an end to this fighting. Les we forget, we live in a world - where anyone could destroy a city, an army or a nation with a single push of a button. I am not denying justice for those killed. But I am hoping that we can stop this, before this war turns into a tit-for-tat situation. Already we are seeing China unravel with their armies defeated and their very homeland at risk of being invaded. However, we ourselves are feeling this pressure. Just recently we have heard rumors that the leader of the free world - the United States of America may be experiencing trouble themselves. It is nothing to be ashamed of. War profits none - and I wouldn't be surprised if America itself was feeling the weight of this war already..."

"In a way, we have a chance to end this conflict before it turns hot. Less we forget, the Chinese still have nuclear weapons that they have threatened to use time and again on the field. Despite what has been said, they aren't stupid. They know if they used their WMDs against us, we would do the same to them. But things have changed now. They are on the losing side. They WILL lose either way. Now is only a matter of how much thrashing and pain they are going to cause us - if this war is going to end in failure either way."

"I don't know about you guys and girls...but I am not eager to be receiving sunburn in the next few days, weeks or decades even. As such, I once again call upon my fellow leaders of the free, not-so-free and rest of world. Time to stop this war, get our hands dirty and find a solution to the energy crisis that is affecting us all. Thank you..."

August 2st, 2077

SCHUTZSTAFFEL GENERAL CAUGHT IN SCANDAL
Image
SS General Heinrich Zoller, head of Gestapo-Amerika at the German Embassy in USA.

Police and National Guard units descended upon the German Embassy in Washington today, The reasons for this were unknown but a German official who remains anonymous stated that SS-General Heinrich Zoller was head of Gestapo-Amerika which was a combined intelligence agency of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Geheime Staatspolizei as well as Sicherheitsdienst. Our source explained to us that Heinrich Zoller may of been about to "rat" out on secret spying being done on German and American citizens as well as allies and national leaders.

Heinrich Zoller supposedly hid the data in a holotape which was located on a official-issue Schutzstaffel Pipboy-3000. He was seen being escorted out with a white pillowcase over his head while in his black Schutzstaffel uniform, the nazi armband removed. We have reached out to German and American officials for comment on this very important story.




Soviets hold parade!
Image
Secret photo taken by Freedom Rights International outside of Turtledove Detention Camp which is reported to be a labor camp for Oriental peoples.

The Soviet Union today held a massive parade before the 2077 FIFA games which would be taking place in Pakistan. The Massive parade included military assets as well as people from all the backgrounds of the various Soviet republics. The parade gave us at the Washington Free Post a chance to speak with the yet not known Soviet Premier regarding the current world issues over the phone. His answers were vague but promised peace from the Soviet Union. He also mentioned looking forward to sitting down with German officials soon for another round of talks.

We can hope that this path of peace continues and that the US-Chinese follow the same suit.




Prague Protests flare up again, this time more violent than ever
Image
Protesters in Prague protest a recent change by the occupation force of Germany. The above picture shows a protester shot dead.

Prague, one of the most prestigious cities in Europe which has still held onto it's cultural monuments and various other landmarks despite the Nazi invasion in 1930s. The germanification of the country has been slow but has been increasing over the past few decades as Prague citizens protest the unethical laws placed down on Czechoslovakian citizens such as mandatory birth control and vasectomies which have been forced upon Czech citizens to lower the birth-rate in the country. This move has been witnessed in various other occupied countries in Europe such as Spain, Italy, Netherlands.

The most recent protests in Prague have been the most violent with one protester taking control of a Wehrmacht tank and firing into a crowd of German police officers trying to protect a local branch of the NSDAP offices from being raided. The situation continues to develop and we will have more information for you on this developing situation later.

Kourou Police Station
Kourou
Guyane


“Now then, an overview of the present situation,” the grizzled police chief announced, a hint of nervousness in his voice. In all of his years on the police force, he had never had to deal with anything quite like what was happening now. He was used to dealing with rowdy tourists and idiotic teen trespassers, not armed protestors. Nor could he have imagined that one day he would be speaking to some of the country’s top leaders - President Henri Ponce, the Minister of the Interior, and even the Director of the National Space Agency. Ponce nodded in acknowledgement as the chief sprawled out a worn down map of the Space Center. It was riddled with marks, circles, and Xs.

“This,” he pointed to a small cluster of what seemed to be distant buildings, away from the center of the spaceport, “is where the commercial launch areas and control facilities are located. A small group of protestors were holed up here, only to be dispersed after a coordinated operation by local police and the National Guard.” The chief paused, reminding himself once again that this was just a simple briefing, he had done many times before.

“Leading up from this area is the main road that goes through the entire length of the Space Center. We have set up intermittent barricades going up to the launch areas for the Soviet Union’s Soyuz program as well as our own Maqui rockets. This is where the bulk of the protestors - roughly 100, from our estimates, have been holding off. And this,” the chief continued, pointing at a dotted line that surrounded the area, “is where we have set up our perimeter.”

“Further down from the main facilities is the tracking and weather station. It is, unfortunately, currently held by protestors, who appear to be using it as an outpost to watch for police movement, as well as a line of communication for our own negotiators. We have been unable to make much headway with them...and of course, I am sure you have already read their list of demands to death.”

“That,” the police chief made a vague, broad gesture towards the map, “is the full extent of the Space Center that is controlled by protestors. Going down the main road towards Kourou, the Satellite Preparation Building as well as the administrative buildings are under the control of the police. The administrative buildings are currently being used as a makeshift field headquarters.”

The chief looked up at his audience from the map. His glance lingered on the President, who seemed tired and worn-down, the bags under his eyes betraying his confident, energetic public image. “That concludes my briefing. Any questions?”

Office of the Interior
Cayenne
Guyane


The inconspicuously-named Office of the Interior - often confused with the Ministry of the Interior - had been examining recent developments in Europe with the utmost interest. Violent protests in occupied Prague had broken out, and it seemed like the German Reich had been struggling to contain it. That was not the first time the Office had witnessed such an event; resistance to the Reich was common, although violent incidents like the one that had erupted in Prague had become rarer and rarer as the years passed.

The Office of the Interior was a secretive organization, responsible for leading the Résistance in mainland France. Yet it had nowhere near the power, funds, and resources that it had once had under Muselier. Its mission considered hopeless, much of its funding had dried up over the decades. Oftentimes, the independent agency had to resort to illicit means to raise funds - typically through smuggling. The Office also had to contend with the problem of the resistance network in France, which was a shell of its former glory. At its height in the 1950s and 1960s, it consisted of over a hundred thousand men and women who conducted raids on German troops, sabotaged industry, ands attacked their transportation and supply lines.

Now, it was merely a handful of scattered cells, typically informants who worked with the Office’s agents. Their work was made harder by the fact that recruitment was extremely difficult, as the punishment for betraying the Reich was severe and conspirators were almost everywhere. There seemed little will to revolt; the spirit of Résistance that so defined the Free French in Guyane had been seemingly broken on the mainland.

The Office, for whatever reason, had taken a keen interest in the Prague protests. At the order of its director, its agents sought to establish contact with the few informants that were left. They were instructed to provide information on any events that would be of importance to the Office - acts of violence, quiet sabotage, or anything that would indicate dissatisfaction by the occupied French towards the German authority. Slowly but surely, the remnants of the long-dormant Résistance were being awakened.

Tripoli Mussolini Station, Tripoli

The last thing he wanted was the damned Arabians. Paolo was in a disguise that allowed him to blend in with the public, alongside several agents from the Servizio Informazioni Operative e Situazione their secret service. Once the train arrived at the station, the ambassador and his aides were taken by them and whisked away to a secret location within the city which was used for secret meetings with officials or more less wanted seen people who could ruin a man's career. But this was different, he was tired and sick and wanted this to be done quickly. Once they arrived, the Italian leader looked at the Arabian with scornful eyes.

"You've better a good reason to come here, especially for those that collaborate with the Germans so willingly. You know our wishes to destroy them, to reclaim our homeland yet here you are, after pledging support to their damned war against the Chinese. So as I've said, unless you have something worth talking about then we'll most likely get nowhere."

Military Information Service HQ, Benghazi

It was a slow and tiring day within the decoding room. The German enigma which spread itself in long sheets in front of him, having changed long after it was used in the world wars, was now a force to be reckon with. The supercomputer churned out the letters in incoherent spews, never bringing out words. He groaned in annoyance, slamming his head down. Looking up he stared at the long sheet of words being made, the agent quickly stood up and started reading. It was broken, they broke the Enigma like the Poles did before them. Damned Germans never learned, thought by adding more rings to the motors would change it all, but now it was broken again. Quickly taking the paper he rushed around the office with it.

"We broke it!! We broke the enigma!!! The Germans are vulnerable, we must prepare for a strike soon! We must not let those resistance fighters the chance to be squashed! Get Il Duce! He must be informed at once!"

Secret Location, Tripoli, Italian Libya

The Arabian Ambassador sat down at the table and said "I can understand your frustration but we've held a guarantee of your independence since 1947. The Reich is trembling with protests, scrutiny" as he threw down a copy of the Washington Free Post. He continued "Prague protests, protesters taking control of a tank and shooting at nazi cops guarding a nazi party building which was later raided along with a few gestapo offices. SS generals working with American intelligence agencies such as DIA as well as the Pentagon getting arrested. The reich is crumbling right before our eyes."

The Ambassador flicked through the pages of the Washington Free Post as he read the other latest headlines. "The soviets speak of peace, American detention camps. Arabia just wants to be sure that it's on the right side when the cards fall. We both know that the world has a limited amount of time left. We can avert that if we can fix these issues. Furthermore, the king wishes to provide material support to you in form of whatever oil's left and whatever military technology he can provide. Not to mention... German state secrets."

Secret Location, Tipoli, Italian Libya

"I know about the damned protests, this is the only chance we have against those bastards. But a few protests and defections aren't that special, they've happened before. Remember the Warsaw Ghetto? To all those Jews? They rose up and got slaughtered, a singular protest overtaking a tank to shoot at some police officers, that's a riot. Our time is limited, our cards about to fall. Yet you walk in here as if speaking enlightenment upon the ignorant."

The President sighed heavily, hearing the need for oil and technologies. But most importantly state secrets, which at that moment one of the agents leaned into Paolo's ear and whispered quietly. A dawn shining upon his eyes, this truly was his own final chance. "Libya has been producing oil for so long, after we found it. Yet now it slowly dries and we're left with a crumbling fleet of ships and planes...You know, I have not many options for this. You're speaking to me of so much, asking for so little in return. You wish to be on the right side of history when the cards fall, yet will we even be able to see them land on the table?.. I will accept your offer, but I have a list of what I desire for my material support. My army is not entirely up to date as you know, so be prepared to give us many things to support our return to Italia.

Official Request for the Transfer of Material Resources

100,000 units of Laser Rifles with ammunition to supply them for several months of military operations
3,000 units of Protectrons
500 units of assaultrons
5,000 units Mr. Handys (For the use of redesigning for military use.)
400,000 units of small arms with the ammunition to supply them for several months of military operations
50,000 units of anti-tank weaponry and ammunition for several months of military operations
50,000 units of anti-air weaponry and ammunition for several months of military operations
Reinforced transportation ships for the entire Italian Army


After sliding the paper over, he looked at the Ambassador in the eyes, "As for the German State secrets, I need several documents. Documents on internal dissenters, resistance movement sizes, army, air force and navy sizes in Italy, Spain, Southern France and the Balkans. As well as the location of ships within the Mediterranean, if you are able to provide this information we will be able to fully and effectively plan operations against the German state with ease, without the chance of something going terribly wrong.

The ambassador looked at the list and nodded. He proceeded to say "Well, we can try our best. Most of our assets are going to help the American-Sino war. However, we do have access to some of the best technology the Third Reich had. As for state secrets, Like any good ambassador. I came prepared." before pulling out a folder from his briefcase. He opened the folder as he slid confidential pictures onto the table. The photos showed forced labor camps in Italia, Spain, Yugoslavia and the countries of old. All mining uranium, whatever oil was left in Europe and any valuable assets. The photos also showed death camps and the evidence of them.

The ambassador finally then pulled out another folder from the briefcase before opening it and sliding classified plans for various designs the Germans had been tinkering with. Before he went any further the Ambassador said "Now, we do not know if this is what they are really working on but this is what they showed us and the Americans. You may be shocked at some of this stuff. It's very technologically advanced."

Riyadh, United Arabia

Image

Things were developing once more in the world - although instead of the war going on in the Pacific between the Americans and the Chinese, the assembly of people gathered in Arabia was fighting another battle instead - namely that of the energy crisis that was slowly starting to affect more and more countries around the world. Especially the less fortunate and neutral factions at that - whom had neither powerful allies or chance to obtain such without heavy costs or concessions.

The Council for Renewable Energy or CRE had been started way back in 2027, back when oil production was at the highest it had ever been yet when many theorists had suspected that peak oil had been reached and decline was coming. It was around such times, that Brazil had slowly started to suffer from the plundering of it's own resources by American companies and had taken the chance to partake in the CRE - originally being a mix of environmentalists, eco-protestors and Green Parties from across Africa, Asia and Latin America - alongside free marketing for any small company organized around new and radical technology, granted while most were a bust, a few had seen great growth.

The once every five year meeting, had many countries from across the globe gathered here - granted it was voluntary and usually none of the large blocs usually visited such meetings of minor nations. Brazil was a larger force than it had been fifty years ago when it had first come here - now it was the biggest producer of ethanol fuel, which was proving to be a cheaper alternative with each passing month, as oil prices reached sky-high prices while the production of ethanol required farmland and special machinery. The kind that Brazil had spent decades in perfecting.

Representing Brazil in such meetings was Minister of Energy, Hans Grüber - a 5th-generation German whose great-grandparents had escaped Germany to Argentina back when Adolf Hitler had first come to power; being German Catholics in a mostly Protestant nation back then was difficult itself - although Argentina hadn't been any better for his parents back in 2020, when they had relocated to Brazil and became official citizens there. The agenda for the day, was meeting with country leaders and various companies in this exhibition. Granted, things were much more serious now than in earlier times - no doubt deals would be struck behind close doors, which was a third reason for such meetings.

"This....This is horrible, how have the Germans been pushing themselves so far despite everything they own? And this!" Paolo smacks the mech, "This is horrendous. This is the response to the American power armor? It's a sham, a single soldier within it could take out that hunk of metal without needing to expose himself, American anti-tank weapons are the prime weapons to face against the Nazi machine. If this is what the Nazis are putting their resources towards, then we need not worry."

The President moved away the other papers, "I also already knew about the camps, it was obvious what the Germans were doing. It's hard to hide, this is just disgusting. Italia itself turned into slave labor. We need to liberate them quickly, or else we will not have enough to outweigh the Germans that move into there. So you must go and get us our equipment or else we will not be able to fight the Germans on equal footing, the Germans will decimate us if we don't have that power! Now go!"

The agents went over and picked the ambassador back up, throwing a sack over his head. He was driven to the station before his bag was removed and pushed out the car. It floored on the gas pedal and sped off around the corner, never to be seen again. But high up, an Italian sniper was watching the man with a sniper rifle. Ready to fire if they met with anyone else other than them, if they spoke with the Germans about their plans it was game over for the Italian's chance at liberation. So there will be no loose ends if it comes to term.

Cairo Military Station, United Arabia

A train set off carrying some of Germany's latest war machines. Onboard was sentry bots, the Gott superheavy Advanced Tank Destroyer and the new German Mech along with a experimental mech prototype that replaced the rocket/grenade launchers on the side with mini-nuke launchers following a brief development between US-German firms. Also onboard was Mr. Handy robots and various small arms and some large weapons such as the new Gatling laser as well as the Panzerhund and other German military robots.

The train was bound for the Mussolini station's exclusive Diplomatic portion to avoid detection by the German authorities. Also on the train was replica German officer uniforms and German soldier uniforms of various branches and rank. Forged documents of almost every thinkable profession and military rank. This was all to outfit the Libyan Army with the tools to train against German soldiers/ and participate in stealth missions. The train also contained combat armor and some camouflage military fatigues.




Mussolini Station, Tripoli, Libya

The ambassador boarded the train as four men in Allgemeine-SS uniforms approached the train. The italian interpreter was about to get on when one of the four men pulled out a Chinese-replica of the Mauser C96 and fired a single shot at the interpreter's head. The Arabian security pulled out 10mm SMG's concealed within their briefcases and begun firing back. The train begun to move as Arabian and Italian security/police begun to continue the firefight.

All four men were shot eventually and fell down dead. From first glance, they looked like Caucasian members of the Allgemeine-SS who were highly-decorated. An arabian security officer noticed something was wrong with one of the men's faces. The four men were all wearing masks. He swiftly pulled the mask off to reveal a Chinese face underneath. A further search of the corpse revealed Chinese intelligence documents as well as items of Chinese Intelligence Agency origin.

Council for Renewable Energy, Ebrahim Palace, Riyadh, United Arabia

Many had gathered at the CRE with many top officials from around the world gathering to discuss new forms of energy. The US and Chinese decided not to attend for reasons unknown. The US was invited to attend due to their Helios-One Solar powerplant that was recently opened near Las Vegas. On display at the Council for Renewable Energy were the latest atomic-powered vehicles and robots.

Companies too, were in attendance such as General Atomics International as well as Robotwerk. Security was tight at the event in order to prevent assassinations or so on. The first to take the stage was Dr. Bernard Fernstein who was a well-respected scientist in United Arabia and most of the world outside Germany. He would have a simple presentation but also a revolutionary one. He turned the projector on as it begun projecting a image infront of the interested company and world leaders one of which was Brazil's representative gathered in one of the Conference rooms.

Dr. Fernstein begun speaking "Hello, I have discovered a way to revolutionize medicine. Traditionally opium has been grown and harvested before being processed into Morphine or Oxycodone. However. We have devised a way utilizing modified yeast that can produce all forms of opioids using sugar. We are also advancing our synthetic opioid research. Now the reason I wanted to bring this up at the Council for Renewable Energy. I think it's a fitting place because the opium poppy is slowly going extinct and trade embargoes between the US and China have stressed opium trade. Chronic pain patients in poor countries such as Africa and other nations have very limited access to pain killers." before taking a sip of water and continuing while switching a slide on the projector.

He continued "Using this news, people will no longer have to suffer. Prepare for a demonstration." as his assistants bought in all the necessary equipment. He begun to experiment with the modified yeast while adding sugar. Within a few minutes, the opioid alkaloids Morphine, Thebaine and Codeine and many others were produced without the need for the Opium poppy plant. Dr. Fernstein then said "Is there any questions?" as press took pictures and wrote it all down.

OPIOID SHORTAGE SOLVED?
Image
Various bottles of opioid painkillers on display at a Washington-area Pharmacy.

Opioids have been in short supply across the world due to low production of the Opium Poppy as well as trade embargoes. Developing countries have had it worse with the price of Morphine skyrocketing. Med-Tek, an american pharmaceutical company attempted to solve this issue by developing Med-X a fully synthetic opioid which did not rely on the opium poppy. However, there is a shortage of Med-X and the price for it is also incredibly high for $80 just for a single pill of Med-X. Hospitals have been flooded with Chronic pain patients the world over seeking treatment for their pain only to be turned away due to low supply of Morphine and other painkillers.

However, at the CRE conference in Riyadh today. Dr. Bernard Fernstein presented a new revolutionary method to make various opiates utilizing modified yeast and sugar. Our news team was on site when he demonstrated the method to us. He was able to make Codeine, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone as well as Morphine and other opioid derivatives. Immediately after this news. The price of some opioids fell at a shocking rate but for a single dose of Morphine the price is still a incredible $140 per a pill.

Dr. Fernstein hopes this revolutionary new method will reduce that amount to just $0.50 per a pill which is already being patented and used in his pharmaceutical company. Production is expected in just a few days.




German labor camp survivor speaks out
Image
A bottle of LSD, a highly-potent psychedelic supposedly used on German labor camp victims.

Camp inmate #A691C sat in the room as he shook retelling the story of German labor camps. He recalled experimentation upon labor camp inmates using experimental medication and weapons. One such drug used was the classic LSD developed in the 1940s by Albert Hoffman. The Germans recently claimed to have developed a new ultra-potent form of it that can act as a anti-depressant and also a truth serum.

The camp inmate recounted hours of sitting in dark rooms being pumped full of LSD while SS officers interrogated him about his affiliation with Chinese communists. He supposedly lost his mind for over four hours as he hallucinated horrendous things. It wasn't until after an anti-psychotic was injected did he reveal his affiliations. He knew he was going to be executed the next day so he escaped and made for the Soviet Union where he presented at the Washington Free Press Soviet office and begun telling us this incredible story.

Council for Renewable Energy, Ebrahim Palace, Riyadh, United Arabia

Like many, Hans Grüber was rather surprised what the Arabians had come out with - while the CRE was mostly dominated by energy and fuel topics, on some rare occasions other type of 'green technology' was also showcased. Although in most situations, such topics were avoided or not that successful - Minister Grüber still was surprised on that the Arabians had gone through with such a thing and had even a working prototype too. Especially when it came to medicine, which was starting to become a rare commodity at that - or rather an expensive one, that was heavily dominated by the Med-Tek Corporation who was eager to extract as much profit for the highest costs. While Brazil had a waiver for purchase in bulk cheap, it was still a highway robbery in his opinion. Granted, Hans Grüber would keep his opinion to himself - plus he doubted he could out yell the numerous reporters and other delegates here whom were in a much worse situation that his country.

Still, he had hope that Brazil could surprise people as much as the Arabians had done so. Thus eventually Doctor Fernstein would have his moment in the spotlight, before others would come to discuss their own ideas and projects - while Brazil had been hoping to keep such ideas under the blankets - with the Sino-American War heating up and energy crisis likely to grow worse, not to mention the hanging nuclear dagger of Damocles - President Ardiente had given him the go-ahead. Granted, he had some ideas of what the CEO of Poseidon Energy might do once he heard this.

"Thank you. Everyone for such amazing presentations. I do hope I can match Doctor Fernstein and his miracle yeast and sugar mix, bread and medicine in equal amounts, huh?" he added, starting with a slight humor - before growing serious. "My fellow, men and women of science, politics and...press - our world is at the edge of a crisis. Some of you know, some of you likely not, while others are living in it. We are short on oil and fuel..."

"Poseidon Energy might keep saying that oil is our past, present and future. But I doubt it being our future. Oil drilling is at it's lowest, prices in it's highest. While I have hope for nuclear and fusion power - I fear, it might come too late. The Americans have achieved success, but how long until it will reach the civilian sector or be made available in the private sector? Same goes with nuclear power - when we run out of uranium, what will happen then? We will we back to square one - only nuclear power is said to be in less quantity in our soil."

"Brazil for years now have been at the forefront of renewable energy. If only because we our own country lacks oil or other alternatives to help fuel our economy..." he spoke, as he soon enough pulled out an apple and took a bite out of it. "This. Came from our soil. Some of us eat it, some of us pick it, some throw it away. Today I can throw it away, tomorrow I can get a new one. Properly managed, a land can produce an infinite supply of such apples. But...what if I tell you this can be turned into fuel?"

"For years now, you know how we turn sugar into ethanol - a complex process that requires land for material, specific material. Ethanol is produced mostly from sugars or starches, obtained from fruits and grains. Sadly we only use a specific part of the fruit. What if I told you, we can now use anything that can be reduced back to it's natural component?" he spoke. As soon enough several assistants rolled in a rather fancy looking machinery - that looked like a high-tech distillery.

"We have found a way, to manufacture cellulosic ethanol. How is that different? Cellulosic ethanol is obtained from cellulose, the main component of wood, straw, and much of the structure of many plants. Since cellulose cannot be digested by us humans, the production of cellulose does not compete with the production of food, other than conversion of land from food production to cellulose production. Not to mention, the trade-off is much more efficient and higher..." he explained, getting a bit technical.

"The raw material is plentiful. I am talking about - anything that contains this stuff. Packing, cardboards, wood wastes, any rotting material that is in your dumps or landfills. Just imagine, you could take the trash we make daily and turn it into something useful? Even if you have land that can only grow weed - it too can be grown in abundance, picked and then used for the production of fuel. We have shown, you can use ethanol as a fuel source..." spoke Hans, as he soon threw his apple inside the machine - and in front of the whole crowd, the rather silent machine did it's work - before letting out several drops of ethanol into a small glass. As Hans Grüber soon pulled out a lighter and set the ethanol on fire and let it burn out. "Our future...cleaner, smarter...and hopefully with less wars. Any questions?"

Council for Renewable Energy, Ebrahim Palace, Riyadh, United Arabia

A man in a white SS uniform bedecked with numerous Nazi Party medals stood up and begun speaking "Ethanol.. You expect this to power our robots? What about our tanks? Our airplanes?" while the Arabian military ambassador slammed a book shut as if for dramatic effect. The Arabian military ambassador said "Ethanol, nuclear, oil. It will fuel the robots the Reich produces just the same. It's simply a matter of converting the engine to run the said different fuel. Or making a new engine. We have already experimented with some german tank designs on pure ethanol fuel with some success."

The SS officer barked back "Atomic is our future! We cannot let fruits or vegetables power our vehicles. What if there is a food shortage next?" to which Dr. Fernstein jokingly exclaimed "We'll just clone it. Why not? The americans have already begun work on cyro technology. If I can replicate opioids using my formula and solve the chronic pain issues many face. The same can be done for food and so on. Ethanol is a reasonable choice." and the SS officer agreed while saying "Der Fuhrer would be pleased, but what about the Americans? The Chinese? They have not appeared here and obviously do not show a care to the growing problems our world faces. Dr. Fernstein has already shown a great working model and the Brazilians too on Day one."

While this was occuring. Dr. Fernstein proceeded to pass out opioid pills which were pills made from the opiates he had grew from yeast and sugar. Of course, he only gave it to people who would not be allergic or so on. One of the people who received a pill was the Brazilian rep. Dr. Fernstein would ask the crowd one last time to try it while he had his assistants give out low doses of Med-X to the same crowd and compare the effects.

Council for Renewable Energy, Ebrahim Palace, Riyadh, United Arabia

Hans Grüber kept his cool at that, despite both being German and most of the Germans living in Brazil seeing the Nazi Party as everything that was twisting and insulting the very culture they were trying to keep alive and untainted by the rather neo-paganistic ideals of the Nazi German regime. "Yes...it can power. I don't much care what is inside my vehicle, as long as I can drive it. It is just the matter of finding the right engine and pump the right amount of fuel inside of it..."

"Brazil has the lowest energy prices in the world, do you wonder why is that so - when we have almost no oil reserves of our own," he spoke - keeping his attitude rather collected, even with the member of the SS, displaying his fake glory build on blood and suffering rather openly. "Atomic...yes. Then what will happen when the uranium will run out? It was once said that oil will never run out, now we are here. When we first started mining the world, we made a census that dictated that we have very likely several times less uranium than oil..."

"Also. Perhaps you misunderstood me. Ethanol at the moment is manufactured from mostly food containing lots of sugar or sugar in fruits at that. Properly managed, one can easily manage to balance both food for consumption and for production..." he spoke. "Although, as I had just explained the new cellulosic methoid is aimed at producing ethanol using the same method - except this time manufacturing it from the cellulose of a plant itself. In case you need clarification, cellulose is contained in almost all plant matter. Meaning that Arabia can grow sand dunes filled with nothing but switchgrass and then later pulverize it for fuel. If anything this new method will allow us to completely bypass utilizing our food and instead utilize plants that are wasting ground anyway..."

"America in my opinion is still relying on the power of oil - which it has, and will likely not abandon - not until every last drop of oil is gone from our world. As for China, they are still suffering from embargo and fighting with the Americans over on the Pacific."

Council for Renewable Energy, Ebrahim Palace, Riyadh, United Arabia

The next day after the Arabian Opium display and the Brazilian Ethanol display came the second day of the Conference. Gathered parties were in a rather large hanger-like portion of Ebrahim Palace which was the place to show off truly some of the best large scale inventions for Renewable Energy. Brazil and United Arabia were invited to the best spot in the CRE to display off some of their latest inventions. United Arabia would oblige of course.

Dr. Heinrich Dietrich, a famous German-Jewish scientist whose parents fled to Arabia so long ago had his latest invention wheeled in. This newest invention was smaller outdoor all-weather atomic generator which could power a entire house. It ran on fusion cells and there was a process by the Brazilians who also worked with the Arabians to make a ethanol-derived variant but it was not ready yet. A party had gathered to observe a working demonstration of the generator as it powered a scaled replica of a house. Dr. Dietrich even poured water on the generator to demonstrate that it could work outside in the rain or snow. He also exclaimed that the same could work for the ethanol generator.

Dr. Dietrich exclaimed that the numerous uses for this included powering up homes after a electrical blackout due to bad weather or if the worse, nuclear war as the generator was shielded lightly to prevent EMP as with most other generators of the time. However, Dr. Dietrich's generator was far more sophisticated and the first atomic one at that.

Dr. Anne II Frank Ebrahim, 6th Princess to the Royal Throne of the Ebrahim Kingdom of United Arabia walked around the large hanger portion as she observed some of the latest inventions. The young princess was a mere 26 and you could see the resemblance to her great great grandmother the original Anne Frank. She walked up to Dr. Hans Grüber and introduced herself eager to hear from another German exile.

The SAS

William Abbot had only recently graduated from SAS Training. He reflected back on his timeLike all special forces, the SAS works tirelessly to outdo others in the brutality of its training. After graduating from basic training, Abbot had been subjugated with the punishing "All-In" exercise, designed to weed out the weak.

It commenced with the "pre-rev" exercise during which men were subjected to constant abuse. Sleep, food, self-respect, and modesty were eliminated as the candidates boxed, wrestled in mud, ran, swam, went on assault courses and participated in anything to wear themselves down. All activities required carrying a rifle and steel ball. One activity, "chariot races," had recruits haul screaming instructors in the bush in vehicle trailers. No talking was allowed.

One could, of course, accept a hot meal and cold beverage. The few who prevailed and refused to accept that they were certain failures were transported to the Inyanga highlands in the east of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia. The mountains were massive, slopes sheer, and undergrowth thick and thorny.

The selection process finally began. The cold and hungry troopies were dumped in the wilderness, told to meet at a locstat, a map grid reference, within 24 hours, and thrown a jumble of maps along with a steel trunk of metal balls. Apart from the shared steel trunk, each individual carried a loaded weapon, pack, and steel balls. Misdemeanors, such as having a dirty rifle at any stage, resulted in increasing the load of balls. Those who made it to the rendezvous found no more than a map and another locstat and the grind continued. Instructors occasionally appeared, reassuring the cadets who would share their colors that they indeed were failures.

After 5 days, the still-standing were interviewed. Instructors interviewed recruits to find who in their respective teams had performed and how.

With the team phase completed, the final portion of Abbot's training shifted to endurance and initiative. He was supplied with water and blister and medication and sent on his way to pain. On the final day, on his last legs, Abbot was given ultimate instructions: march 10 kilometers back into the mountains with full loads within 5 hours. Abbot succeeded, although many of his compatriots did not.

Now he was in a top-secret operation to destroy a suspected Communist terrorist group base in Zambia. Zimbabwe-Rhodesia, despite its defeat of Communism in 1979 and promotion of anti-Communism throughout Southern Africa, never let its guard down. Any violent Communist movement nearby was fair game.

Operation Cauldron

Abbot and his squadron were improving when they received word that National Parks Ranger Dave Scammell had cut tracks coming in from Zambia and thus would be choppered in from Salisbury. Abbot found tracks of over 30 and followed them for three days into the Mana Pools along the Angwa River and towards the Zambezi Escarpment.

As his squadron closed in on the Angwa Testse Camp, Abbot was in front and knew they were so close to contact; he reminded his CO Joe that "There were four of us, thirty of them. We ought to get reinforcements" Abbot was only a troopie, Joe a sergeant. Lucky for them, the RLI were close behind and Lieutenant Bert Sachse arrived with his troop who came in behind Abbot's squadron. Abbot moved forward with Joe and told the RLI to wait behind. Abbot and Joe had the enemy position visual and considered getting the RLI to shoot em up. Without the enemy seeing them, the two saw that the tsotsis were lying in ambush. The two watched for a while and eventually the terrs started to move around. The terrs started eating, and the RLI were called in and mowed them down.

"Please, Princess. I am not a Doctor. I got a doctorate, but not an official scientist like some of the people here," replied Hans Grüber, a warm smile on his face - as he had a glass of ice-cold lemon water in his hand, enjoying the refreshing beverage in the desert heat. Luckily, the place had plenty of A/C to keep anyone from starting to sweat too much.

"Ugh. Exile..." he growled, his eyes staring back at the SS Officer, whom they had to treat like a member of society. "If things were different, if I was a lesser man, I would get a pistol and gun down that man. Even now I have the urge, but I know they would find another yes-man to replace things..."

Namely there was a very deep divide between the German diaspora and those living in Nazi Europe - whereas once people like him, would have enjoyed the idea of their Fatherland being a dominant power in the world - many had such dreams back Germany had been an Empire and in some ways bound by some rules and traditions at that. Instead, when Adolf came to power - everything that made Germany great and a cultural haven was destroyed. Instead they glorified the idea of purity and war like it was some game or destiny - while many biologists and doctors were discovering rather deep and troubling flaws in the fields of eugenics already.

"...my family ago fled Germany - back when Hitler came to power. We were Catholics. Not welcomed back when the Protestant Prussians were in power, yet at least worth enough to be conscripted. When the Jews were rounded up...well...they knew something was wrong and ran to Argentina. Had a home and life there, alongside my grandparents and parents - until 2020. Then they fled to Brazil...and here I stand..." he explained to the Princess. "...standing in a world that is ready to blow themselves up and laugh as the flames consume their enemies, unaware they are on fire too..."

Princess Anne II Frank Ebrahim nodded as she replied "Well, you probably know who I am. My great great grandmother is the famous diarist Anne Frank. My great great grandfather Lukas Ebrahim had this Palace built in the 1950s. Of course, it has been renovated over the years for obvious reasons. Adding in air conditioning and whatnot. The Jerusalem Ebrahim Palace is much more better than the one in Riyadh but it's smaller of course because a lot of the old buildings there couldn't be demolished to make way for the Palace." as she took a sip of Nuka-Cola Lemon.

She continued "I'm very pleased to hear about our governments cooperating. It's very refreshing. Of course, I hope what I say to you does not travel beyond these walls. I know the United Arabian government is allied with the Nazis and the US for right now but it's not a kind sentiment the King shares. Hell, to be honest... Hitler after he contracted syphilis sometime in the 1950s was so paranoid. He forced Arabia into a pact with the nazis to help fuel their war machine. Of course. The first king of Arabia was very generous to the Jewish people and allowed them status here. You know, United Arabia made a big splash and many thought it'd collapse in the 1950s and 1960s after Anne Frank and Lukas Ebrahim married and became King and Queen due to them both being Christian and Jewish. However. United Arabia practices a lesser form of Islam compared to some of the Islamic countries in our sphere of influence.. Namely Pakistan, Afghanistan."

She took another sip of her drink and continued once again, hopefully not boring the doctor. "Can you believe that Pakistan still hasn't allowed women to drive? But if you go onto any street in the United Arabia country. You'll find Christian, Jews, Muslims all cooperating and coexisting. Women driving, Muslim women not forced to wear the Hijab or burqa. The king has tried again and again to try to force them to let up some of those old practices. Hell, the royal family is a mix of Christian, Jews, Muslims."
