|The Sergeant says, "This article needs more content, so stop messing around and add to it right now!"
Irons: The world is asking one question. Why did I attack the United States? The United States has had the world in a constant state of war for over a hundred years. Time and again we have seen the catastrophic results of this belligerent, militaristic policy. These wars haven't led to resolution, or peace. These wars have only led to more wars. The United States has set the agenda because they wielded the biggest stick. Well no more. This is not the beginning of a war, this is the end of all wars.
The screen fades to black. A jet flies through Iraq as Mitchell starts to narrate.
Jets roll through a air force base as some are going in air. Mitchell continues to narrate.
Mitchell: Our mission was to fly with the 37th Airborne during the initial shock and awe campaign. From there we should break off and infiltrate the Atlas Command Center, taking out Irons.
Mitchell: For Cormack, it was the end of a journey. He's been waiting five years for this day.
Mitchell's narration stops as Kingpin speaks to Cormack.
Kingpin: Last minute change of plan. You'll be flanking around the east and north covering Blue Team on their sortie over the target.
Cormack: Yes sir. Guess I've got the soft option.
After Cormack finishes his words, he and Kingpin walk to Mitchell and Gideon who stand at the side.
Kingpin: There are no soft options on the table. I just don't want all my assets in play at once. We're only going to have one shot of getting the bastard.
Cormack: That's all we'll need.
Kingpin: I know it. Just stay alive. You're our star witness when we drag his ass in front of the Hague.
Cormack: Looking forward to it.
Kingpin: Alright, good luck.
Kingpin walks away, Cormack turns to Mitchell and Gideon and shakes both of their hands. Mitchell and Gideon look at each other and nod as Mitchell starts to narrate.
Mitchell: There was nothing more to say. We all knew what had to be done.
Mitchell: This was the beginning of the end...for one of us.
The screen pans to Mitchell and cuts to black.

Ilona: What's happening?
Gideon: Knox is down! I need immediate MEDIVAC on my location!
Knox: No, it's Manticore. We've got to pull back, get everyone out!
Ilona: Why aren't we affected?
Gideon: Irons engineered it to be harmless to his own troops. The three of us must have been inoculated.
An AST starts firing at Gideon, Ilona and Mitchell.
Gideon: Return fire!
The AST successfully knocks them out. Irons is heard speaking in a transmission. Mitchell opens his eyes to see he and his companions being dragged away.
Irons: Citizens of New Baghdad, hold strong. Victory is within our grasp. Look around you, and you will see our enemies fall one by one. Each and every one of you can be agents of change. Yes, we will suffer losses. We will suffer setbacks. But, make no mistake, we will win. The security that you desire, the security that you deserve, is within our grasp. But, it can only be claimed if you are willing to fight for it. Fight for it.
Mitchell falls unconscious, as the guard grabs him as screen fades to black the mission ends.
