Chapter 2: The Beginning of Crusade...
Four Months have passed since Mr Shepherd sent his Trade Minister to make My Country a Economic Power and it has Brought Dividends. Marseille has been invaded by Paris and a Brutal civil war has been fought with little ground been taken on either side all the while Portugal has been making friends with Madrid and Barcelona and although no Formal Alliance has been anounced Portugal has a full transit treaty and Free Trade agreements with both of them, But Madrid and Barcelona look ready for War any Day now. But The President has other plans and cares not for Spanish Civil War and is about to play off Portugese Hatred of the Parisian attack on Marseilles...
"Captain. Tell the General to Move our forces to the Southern Parisian Border we will show these Warmongers that their kind had no place in this world"
"Mr President, Your Public address is ready."
"Free People of Portugal during my time in Office our country has shown more economic growth than ever. We have a Excellant Health Service, Crime is the lowest in Europe, and our Teachers are wanted by every country in the World..."
"In less than a year we have gained all this and you have supported me, I thank you for this, But I need your Support once more, As you will all know the Parisians have Invaded the territory of Marseille, Warmongering has no place in this World the people of Portugal, The People of Europe are sick of wars, we have had more than our fair share of them, But i'll get to the point"...
"Our Intelligence has uncovered a plot to bring down our country, They are jealous of our growth because they have had little since the world fragmented, We have also found that they will be willing to use Nuclear missles against us, Even after the Warning the World Market has gave them..."
"Support me in this Crusade to bring Peace back to Europe..."
"Support me and I can grarentee the Protection of our Citizens..."
"I ask this of you people of Portugal"
A silence blankets the area, Only to be Broken by Cheering and Jubilation...
"You have won the Peoples Support Mr President, Why do you look like your about to die" Laughed Bradley
"Give me a Picture of the Eifell Tower with our Flag flying high upon it, Then i'll be happy old friend"
"Oh Yes Bradley... Can you tell the General to Begin Operation Hard Justice and hurry please the Parisian spies will have seen my Address..."
Upon the Order he left, To give an order that would pit South Western Europe into Total war...
Because shortly after his speech Madrid invaded Barcelonan Territory.
What this would do to the region was underesitmated at the time...
End of Chapter 2...
Supporting Nuclear Power in the UK.
Just because the Japanese happened to build one near multiple fault lines doesn't make them any more dangerous than they were before the Earthquake.
