Revival of Russia, Prologue
This AAR will be played on the 1.4 beta of Modern Day Scenario 2. It starts in 2003. Also, I'm sorry if my English is faulty at times, I am after all Belgian and English is only my third language. This prologue will be pictureless.
The War on Terror!
Putin during his speech
Carl was walking through te halls of the Kremlin, together with some other journalists who had just witnessed Putin's speech about the situation in Georgia.
"The Georgians have supported the Chechynyans with money and weapons, this we cannot allow, yesterday we sent an ultimatum to Georgia, there has been no answer, this is a warning to Georgia, and it's supporters, we WILL strike if that is what's needed."
Carl had trouble believing it, and it went on and on, a half hour of wild claims that Georgia and the other Caucasian states were supporting terrorist strikes in the Commonwealth of Independent States. Surely the USA would not stand for this?
"WHAT?" Colin Powell jumped out of his chair, in the process throwing his secretary off his lap, staring at his phone.
This could not be, the embassador in Moscow's report about the press conference Putin had held in the Kremlin was unbelievable, his wild claims against Georgia and Armenia were obvious frauds, what was Putin thinking? Of course the USA could not act against them since the EU would not approve at all, being dependant on Russia for oil and in a lesser extent gas.
And even if they wanted too intervene, they were tied up in Iraq anyway.
July 23, 2003
Russian troops hoisting the flag of the USSR in the Georgian capital
After that incident Putin apologised for the behaviour of his troops and decreed that Gergia should stay independent, but in fact he just installed a puppet regime, in August Armenia was the next victim, the world was outraged but powerless, in the UN Russia vetoed all decrees against their behaviour in the Caucasus. Putin was making himself very unpopular very fast, but the Russian people were ecstatic, finally they were a power again.
After installing yet another puppet regime, this time in Armenia.
Russia's eyes turned to Azerbaijan, the only Caucasian state now not under their direct command.
Oval Office, September 4
"...And so, the people of Iraq are free once again, we will stay in Iraq for as long as neccessary, but we are positve that the Iraqi government will soon be able to take over from us as police force, this is another victory on the war of terror!" Bush had finished his speech and now the floor was open for questions.
"Sir, this puppet regi..." a certain journalist working for the CBC began asking.
"It is not a puppet regime" Bush interrupted
" 'This Iraqi government' does it not resemble the moves Russia has been making in Caucasia, where they have now installed 3 puppets, all in the name of the war on terror. A term Putin also used to justify his action in the Caucasus." the journalist rephrased
"The difference is we did not do this for personal gain, but for the good of the Iraqi people, who suffered under Saddam Hoessein!
Putin only invaded the Caucasus to gain natural resources." Bush replied looking very pleased with himself.
"And there's no oil in Iraq?" another journalist yelled, Bush tried to ignore the rhetorical question but he soon had to end the press conference because of the continuous hostility towards him.
Sladislakow entered his appartment in Washington very pleased with himself, his question and Bush's lack of response would be in all the American newspapers tomorrow, and he'd make sure his comrades would know of it too.
