WWIII is already a week old. The European Union’s demise came unexpectedly. The Euro’s value declined rapidly after Chinese communist politician announced that the Chinese Yen would never be traded on the open market. This announcement sparked huge decent within the EU when it was discovered that France had signed specific trade agreements with China excluding the rest of the EU. Germany was hardest hit by this new agreement.
The Demise of the EU/NATO (Background).
Hard core right wing elements from both sides began raids on the NW border of French and German communities in the area of Holtzwithr. At the same time China began amphibious operations in Taiwan simultaneously destroying American satellites.
Taking advantage of the instability in the EU and NATO’s dismemberment Iran launches a huge offensive into southern Afghanistan with Taliban elements operating similar to Russian partisan concentrating on the taking the city of Kabul. NATO forces are holding their own, without French and German forces who abandon Afghanistan to head back to their home countries.
