Archivos Babilonia 2005

Joan Leandre | Toni Serra / Abu Ali

A devastating wave of terrorist attacks spreads across America, Europe and Southeast Asia, targeting specifically U.S. and U.K. interests, including embassies, regional corporate headquarters, and even western retail and restaurant chains. After months of intense hunting, U.S. intelligence tracks the source of the attacks to the tiny eastern nation of Zekistan.

Zekistan was born seemingly overnight with the fall of the Soviet Union, resulting in a struggling third-world nation, torn by ethnic and sectarian strife, armed with a large surplus of Soviet-era military hardware and a critically weak government. Barely a year after its independence, the nation fell into brutal civil war between ethnic Zekis and settlers from surrounding nations. The Zekis were defeated by fundamentalist dictator Mohammad Jabbour Al Afad, who wasted no time in ordering the ethnic cleansing of the native Zekis. After the U.S-led operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, thousands of ex-Taliban and Iraqi loyalists crossed the borders of Zekistan seeking asylum by invitation of the nation’s dictator, Al Afad.

It wasn’t long before the same terrorist training facilities and death-camps that the U.S. fought to remove in Afghanistan were operating again under full sponsorship by Al Afad’s government. After repeated warnings and failed diplomatic resolutions in the UN, NATO votes to invade Zekistan to depose Al Afad, eliminate the terrorist element, and stop the ethnic cleansing of the Zeki people. Pakistan grants the U.S. fly-through access to their airspace, and the operation begins. For several consecutive nights, carrier groups USS Carl Vinson and USS Ronald Reagan in the Arabian Sea launch thousands of sorties to take out air defense, armor, and enemy bases. With the dust barely settled, Infantry and Armor from seven NATO nations begin to land at captured air bases in southern Zekistan. The land invasion is underway…
