Current World Events

The video is shot through with static and a muffled whump sound can be heard and the video clears up. Sitting in front of the screen looking into the camera is a tall, heavily scarred man whith close cropped white hair. "War. War never changes. The romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower. But war, never changes. Even now war was still waged over the resources that could be aquired. Only this time, the spoils of war, were also its weapons. Petroleum and Uranium. For these resources China would invade Alaska. The US would anex Canada. And the European Commonwealth would disolve into quarling bickering nation states, bent on controlling the last remaining resources on Earth. The destructive nature of man could stustain itself any longer and the storm of World War came again. The world was plunged into a dark abyss of fire, radiation and biological warfare. However, it was not as some had predicted the end of the world. Instead, it was just the prologue to yet another chapter in history. For the human race had succeded in doing something no one else had ever done. They destroyed the world. They set fire to the very skies and melted the bones of our enemies in their homes. Many were spared the ravages of the War. At least, the first opening salvos." The man sighs heavily and wipes his face with calused hands. "However the war was anything but brief. Even with advances in weapons and technology the war lasted years until one side or the other finally lost it. We're still not sure who used the nukes first. Towards the end they ignited the planet. In under 2 hours we reduced much of the world to smoldering radioactive cinders. With that last gasp of definace we realized the inevitable. We're dying out. In a few years there won't be anything left of the race called Humans on Earth. We had done it. We had done what only God had ever done and wiped out an entire dominate species. All that was left was the screaming. So whoever you are. If you see this…" The man stops and stares past the screen at someone hammering at the door. He gets up and walks off screen and a conversation can be heard faintly.
"What is it?"
"We have something inbound Lieutenant."
"Impossible. I thought all the birds had been launched!"
"Not from earth sir. It's coming in from out past the moon."
"God help us…"
"We need to get to the shelter sir, the hammer is set to hit in less then five minutes." The sound of a door can be heard closing. Four minutes and 37 seconds later thunder can be heard and something falls over off screen followed almost immediately by the camera hitting the floor and disolving into static.
