Planes crashing into World Trade Centers sends a shock of terror throughout the world. Al Qaida is blamed, and Afghanistan is attacked.


Disguised as a war on terror, Iraq is attacked by a coalition of countries led by USA. A quick victory first seems to bring stability to the region. Soon insurgents start to show their presence and a wave of terrorist attacks sweep over the country.


In the middle of rush hour on a June morning, nerve gas is spread throughout the subways of Paris, killing thousands of citizens. Syria and Iran are blamed. Within weeks, the French war-machine reaches the shores of Middle East. Despite superior equipment, France suffers many casualties. In the European

parliament, heated discussions go on regarding the dangers of a disturbed flow of oil to the European industry


After months of fighting, French forces surround Damascus, the last stronghold of Syria. The oil supply is severely disrupted, constantly disturbed by insurgents. Casualties have been very high and all over the world protests against the wars are growing increasingly strong.


The wars in Middle East are escalating, and neither USA nor France seem to be able to take control of the situation. Iran is pointed out as the master villain behind the insurgents, providing them with weapons and knowledge.


In November a nuclear bomb detonates on a ship outside San Francisco. Over 50.000 citizens are killed instantly. Iranian influence is blamed, and the payback is overwhelming. Missiles rain down over Iranian cities, several of them loaded with nuclear kernels. Despite firm protests from China, ground units from USA, UK and France enter Iranian territory.


Coalition forces seize western parts of Iran, but the ground fights are extremely bloody and the allied body count quickly passes tens of thousands. The European Union summits turn into shouting matches, leading to Italy and Portugal leaving the union. Soon, more countries follow their lead, and in late 2008 the union is declared a failure.


With German industry and society using up the last remaining oil, German troops are sent to the Middle East to secure Iranian oil wells as a last resort. Soon after passing the Iranian border they discover Chinese troops with absolutely no intention of falling back. With the immediate threat of World War III facing them, the coalition troops finally stands to a halt.


As the new decade commences, Western economies balance on the brink of irreversible collapse. Only by securing new oil can the future of the nations be salvaged.
