"Your world as you knew it is gone. How far would you go to bring it back?"
The year is 2011. Civil war has broken out in Russia between the standing government and the rebels known as the Ultranationalists under the command of Imran Zakhaev who seek to restore Russia back to its former Soviet glory. At the same time, a revolution has toppled a regime in an Arabic country with Khaled al-Asad, a man with ties to the Ultranationalists, taking power.
These simultaneous events send ripples of fear throughout the globe—fear that al-Asad and Zakhaev might form an alliance and use nuclear weapons against the West. In response, the United States and Great Britain conduct joint secret operations to squash both uprising. The question is, however, whether or not these operations can remain secret, if they can help avoid a contained issue from becoming a world wide conflict.
