-Xangarkorpf, a song by the Fylkirate band Odinfuror about the famed battle of Kursk

Operation Uzargroza

The country the Ecumene had always sought the destruction of above all others was the Soviet Union, whose talk of egalitarianism was an insult to the Social Darwinism of the great wind of civilization. The eradication of the communists was ordered to be pursued at full throttle by Orluk, who had by now eliminated all rivals to his power who would not rest until the red banner was a forgotten memory. Knowing full well that the people were the water which the fish that were guerillas swam in, Orluk gave the order of "empty the ocean", whose implications would have haunting implications that can be seen in the war's fearful death toll. Gathering the "alliance of civilization" into a vast army gathered from the armies of Atomic China, the Protectorate, the Kumun, the Allies, Omega, the Concordiat, the Tendriculous, India, Avalon, the Sternbergian Guardsmen, the Cult, the GLA, the Syndicate, the Inclusive, and the Unionists he ordered a massed invasion of the Soviet Union.

The Soviet cause is now the human cause comrades! Death to the Alien invaders!

-Marshal Oleg at the battle of Moscow.

Starting right now, International Incorporated is offering everything it can to the cause of human freedom from Ecumenical tyranny. To anyone who needs weapons, we are offering everything we can.
