Seeking to protect business interests and their oil supply, the United States begins to exert increasing pressure on Mexico beginning in 2051. This cited the political instability and pollution stemming from Mexico as a threat to the United States. Various economic sanctions serve to destabilize Mexico, and the United States military entered Mexico to keep the oil refineries running and making sure oil and fuel continue to make their way north across the border at Mexico's expense.

The Resource Wars were a series of conflicts that began in April 2052 with the start of the war between the European Commonwealth and the Middle East.

2066----2075 (ongoing)
With conditions deteriorating between the United States and China, a military presence in Alaska was established to prevent a possible invasion across the Bering Strait. With increasingly scarce oil reserves, a last deep-sea deposit below the Pacific Ocean was claimed by China before allegedly being sabotaged by American special operatives. Strained relationships spiraled downward into conflict as China marched on Alaska, and the Sino-American War of 2066 erupted.
Under the command of General Jingwei, the Chinese Army usurped control of Alaska's oil pipeline and reserves and stationed themselves in the city of Anchorage. In response, the Americans initiated a series of sabotage operations to cripple the Chinese military strength and both belligerents began throwing men at each other in the trenches of Alaska.

With the inception of American mechanized Power Armor troops in the city of Shantou in the province of Quandong, on December 4th 2074, the retaliation begun.

The next step is to hit three targets along the Yangtze river: Three Gorges Dam, Nanjing and Shanghai.

INTEL report that 127th Light Mechanized Infantry Division of the 54th Army PLA is fortifying Nanjing in late December 2074.

The theater of "The Long River" will be played in three acts starting with act 1: The Dam under three veils.
