Well as I've said a few times, when I was 13, I had a series of dreams about that so-called great change. And it was not pretty at all, no sir.
First, the west begins to simple no longer be able to control the rest of the world, then the Russians and Chinese, wanting to grow industrially
faster, begin securing economic powers over the west. The US begins securing it's own security via a North American Union, and responds by selling
resources from Canada and Mexico cheaper than the Russians. Tensions build as the competition grows. The African Union and European Union needs
resources to grow. China's perfectly happy with building Russian tanks in exchange for oil. War is coming, but no one wants it. Finally, a challenge.
The Iranian government sides with the Russians, but the Iranian people side with the west. The clash, as well as regional problems, draws in the US to
intervene more. Sucked it, the Russians begin more and more going to aggressions. When the time is right, they stop using shadow armies and directly
assault the middle east, bombing cities. They forcefully make millions flea to Europe for safety. This mass exodus of people is not good. The
Europeans can either bend and buy into the Russian economic monopoly, or resist and continue to absorb fleeing 3rd world peoples. But members of the
government in the east know that this cannot continue forever. The Americans have their pretty new NAU army to test out on the field, and they aren't
afraid to. Just more live fire testing for their empire. Something must be done to kick the Americans out of the game. Entities from those governments
contact homegrown partisans in America who don't like the government. They smuggle them a nuke, and create a few crisis situation that demand some
form of DC summit. When they meet, boom, a few radicals blow up DC in the name of freedom. From this, the military has fill in the political vacuum.
Two generals are selected to control the home front, in order to sway views of a dictatorship. The Americans pull out of the war, and the Russians
enter Europe as liberators, freeing European governments controlling the people who are oppressed. So much death occurs that European populations
drastically decrease from the war. People filled into cities being bombed simply don't last long. The Russians occupy the African and European Unions
as they establish a Eurasian Union. All while this happens, America fractures. One general goes rouge and starts acting like a dictator, and the other
general is too afraid to start a civil war and kill his fellow countrymen. The radical general burns down the UN building, arrests political
dissenters, is herald as the savior of the republic, even though he's basically a dictator. Businessmen and wealthy investors who don't like this
dictator start funding a new army to be built in the Eastern states, lead by the less crazy general. They force him to look at the extermination going
on, and this makes him angry enough to fight his countrymen. The civil war begins with the bombing of east coast military encampments from the radical
general, who takes up home in the west. NAU is pretty much gone. Mexico fractures into chaos, and Canada tries to keep out of the problems. But as the
chaos spreads into both their borders, a few Mexican generals join with the eastern general, and some Canadian leaders join soon later. A military
force forms to fight the lunatic in the west. They go to war, but a perpetual war forms along the Mississippi and great plains. Meanwhile, the
Europeans need help. They need a crazy man to lead a crazy last ditch effort to fight back the Eurasian Union. They ask the Americans for help. In
exchange for help him, the western general will go to Europe after stabilizing the homeland. A small Euro force is assembled to help, and the western
general prepares for a final push along the front. From the west, forces cross the river. From the North, planes drop troops, and from the east,
European marines land to secure some spots. In the raging chaos, the western general and his administration are pretty much arrested and executed
except for a very few. Those few take over, and reorganize. They push back the enemy, and keep pushing pass the river. The Europeans go home to make a
last stand, failing to help the Americans get back into their war. As the Eurasian Union absorbs Europe and Africa, the western general in America
keeps pushing into the west. A great travesty occurs. the Western general, needing support, and with growing evidence linking him to the dc bombing,
generates evidence to say the Russians and Chinese are to blame. He orders a nuclear retaliation strike. desperate for European aid, and needing a
scape goat, he strikes the, just as DC was, during a summit, killing many leaders. Advanced technologies prevent a counterstrike. This eventually
accumulating in the nuclear strike of his home base by the eastern forces, and catching him while he tryed to escape. The World Union begins to form.
Out of the perpetual war between Russia and Europe, a military and political organization overthrows what remains of the Russian, Chinese, and
European governments, forming a peaceful union to end the slaughter. This new Union that establishes peace, pressures the Americans into stopping
their fighting, just as the western forces enter the last strongholds of the eastern forces. The World Union forces the new American leadership give
over their POWs, including the eastern general. The newly united Americans are too weak to resist this united military force, so they go forward with
it. The World Union charges both sides with war crimes, but they execute the western leadership, allowing the eastern leadership to leave in disgrace
and exile. The World Union finally established world peace, and has to live with what this global conflict has done. The environment is dead, the ice
caps no more, the sky gray with the burning corpses of billions. The world went into the meat grinder and barley made it out alive. after all this, it
is circa 2016, and the world begins to enter a new era of a one world government acting as the savior of mankind against self extermination and war.
vast vertical farms are built to scrub the dirty skies and make food for the survives. New technologies are developed to help the world, but how long
until this government fails. The leadership of those Americans that were exiled waits for the day that the world union is a problem, so they may
strike again, globally, and create their own free world.
Now, what I hope happens? not this...
