BASED ON THE RPG COLD WAR: FROZEN HELL BY KnightHawk. Setting: Earth, 2009 (Early February) The world seems at relative peace. The United States has finally 'won' the War on Terror. Osama bin Laden has been captured and tried in the Hague. Saddam Hussein has been executed by the new Iraqi government for crimes against humanity and the United States has finally pulled its troops out, except for a small observation and advisory force to help the fledgling Iraqi government. In the rest of the Middle East, a new Iranian president has promised to improve its relations with the West, including Israel. A new Palestinean State with a democratically elected government has begun to reign in the terror groups operating its boundaries and is on the eve of signing a non-aggression pact with the Israeli government. China, fearing an international incident, has finally forced its North Korean cousins to disarm its nuclear arsenal. However, all is not totally well. In the Russian Federation, the economy has worsened and internal conflicts have gotten bigger. Despite vast resource holdings in Siberia, the Russian government seems unable to stem the depression that's looming. The military, as with its Soviet predecessors, is becoming more and more politically powerful, fielding numerous local, state and national-level politicians. Fearing a military autocracy, a new Communist Party, led by one of the most charismatic men in all of Russia and (secretly) funded by China, has formed. With Presidential elections upcoming, many political experts fear that Russia is on the brink of collapse. In the United States of America, a new president has been elected, promising to repair all political and economic damage the previous has caused; however, many fear that the new leader may be unable to handle a true international crisis. Is humanity on the brink of a new Cold War or will diplomacy and civility prevail? Only time will tell.
