CROATIA JOINS EUROPEAN UNION





As arranged, Croatia becomes the 28th member nation of the EU, without the adoption of the Euro as a mandate for integration. It is believed that the recently wartorn country will enjoy greater stability and attract further tourism and trade to boost it's vastly deindustrialized economy. President Ivo Josipovic calls it "a great a day for the European people".

However, it is an even greater day for the European Socialists & Democrats in the European parliament as they narrow the margin between them and the Conservative-Reformist caucus in the European Parliament.

UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY


President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Ali Larijani attends a UN conference on nuclear inspections and Iranian openness to them, which The New York Times dubs "salving the wounds his predecessor inflicted two years ago." US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pitches the dropping of sanctions on Iranian oil and nuclear energy in return for the opening of Iranian nuclear facilities to UN Inspectors, which after some deliberation with an Iranian foreign policy delegation on how to word their response, Larijani agrees to.
 The EU will also relieve Iran of it's hefty sanctions in return for the allowance of some inspections in coordination with the UN. At home, the President's policies will garner mixed reacions, veering from hardline protestors outside nuclear facilities to sated though silent Green Reformists.
 Now begins the imposition of extreme sanctions on Syria by the newly relieved EU, which economists estimate will cost the divided nation upwards of E3bn in exports. A very much onesided and likely succesful sanction, many agree.

China launches Chang'e 3, it's first lunar rover, in the latter half fo the year; named after the Chinese goddess of the moon.



Australian troops are withdrawn from Afghanistan, which looks to give Julia Gillard's Labor government a boost in the polls in the run-up to the federal elections.

The 8th generation of video games is well underway with the release of the XBox 720 and an announcement of the PS4's release for Spring 2014.


NB: GTA V came out earlier in May 2013

SYRIAN REGIME OVERTHROWN


On  the twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Bashar Al-Assad's 48th birthday, the Syrian government is toppled by dissidents led by opposition leader Barhoun Ghoulian and a provisional interim administration is formed. The Republic of Syria is recognised by the EU and US but a more hesitant seal of approval is awaited of the GCC and Arab League nations. Russian President Putin's amnesty of Al-Assad will further strain relations with the West and incite rioting within the Federation. President Barack Obama has a 'My Pet Goat' moment when an underling of his interrupts his commemorative speech in Shanksville, Pennsylvania but he brushes it off, finishing his address.

US GUBERNATORIAL ELECTIONS, 2013


32 - 17

NJ Chris Christie (R) > Frank Pallone (D)
VA Bill Bolling (R) > Terry McAuliffe (D)


RGA Vice Chairman Chris Christie will comfortably defeat Democratic Congressman Frank Pallone while the uninspiring Bill Bolling will fight an uphill battle against former DNC Chair Terry McAuliffe, after a contentious primary defeat of Tea Partier Ken Cuccinelli. Some pundits view it as a sign of the Tea Party's waning power nationally but unanimously agree that it was a boring year electorally, with zero changes in the balance of power gubernatorially.

AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL ELECTION


Tony Abbott > Julia Gillard
51.9                48.1%

After a tumultuous six years in office for the ALP including a divisive 18-month-long internal struggle for the leadership of the Party, the Australian people throw out the old and put in the new post-culture war Tony Abbott-led Liberal/National coalition.

After violating Ecuadorean information law, Julian Assange is expelled from the Republic and temporarily becomes a stateless person, before US authorities pick him up hiding aboard a Sea Shepherd vessel in the Pacific, to face extradition and probable incarceration in the United States.
Another diplomatic crisis arises when the 'latter-day Daniel Ellsberg' is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in absentia in a controversially close 3-2 decision by the Nobel Committee in a runoff against Syrian transitional leader Burhan  Ghalioun. Many consider it a ploy on behalf of former Liberal leader Lars Sponheim to lure Assange back to Sweden where he is wanted for questioning in relation to last years' sexual misconduct allegations.

STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

After mulling over a boycott of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Secretary of State Kerry will remind the President of Jimmy Carter's same dud move in 1980, which came in the wake of the arguably more heinous Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Obama scraps the plans but advises the US athletes to wear wristbands emblazoned with the insignia of the new Syrian flag.

"Americans live in a safer world thanks to leaders like Abdurrahim El-keib, Ali Larijani and Burhan Ghoulian. I would like to welcome their respective nations back into the community of ally nations and pray that we can sustain this friendship over the course of mine and subsequent administrations...

In an age of technological innovation, the demands for the openest and most accountable government is made more and more by a hungry citizenry. But this government will not confuse transparency with allowing those who put our national security at risk to get away unabated. That is why Secretary of State John Kerry and myself remain determined in our talks with Brazilian Premier Rousseff for Julian Assange to be extradited back to the United States where he can be prosecuted under the Constitution and receive a sentence in due course.

As President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan leaves office and our troops begin their withdrawal to be completed by the end of this year, we are reminded of the human cost of this conflict. More Americans have now been killed in the conflict than those who perished in the September 11th Attacks of almost thirteen years ago. To our detractors, we are not leaving behind a safe haven for terrorism but a nation better equipped to deal with such threats. The war for peace will be waged longer still..."

SPANISH GOVERNMENT DEFAULTS


Spain goes the way of Greece, Portugal and Ireland when it defaults on it's loans. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy appeals for refinancing by the EU as well as a second bailout package. He agrees to the Merkellian austerity cuts. Riots tear up the Basque country and Catalonia, bolstering the nationalist movements in those regions and solidifying the leftist parties with a year to go til the next general election.

PLAYSTATION 4 RELEASED

The PS4 is released in China then Japan in the Spring of 2014 to great fanfare. It will be fully compatible with Avatar-esque 3D technology to give worlds a realisic depth and incorporate MotionScan technology to truly reflect the voice actor's facial muscles and retinae to portray emotion more accurate. The new console will, like XBox 720, still rely on HDMi yet use advanced motion-sensing technology to record body movements. Complaints arise of the abundant handheld guns and gadgets many of the games require but the console breaks records as the fastest-selling of all time.
As both a gamer and a Sony fanboy, I'd like to mention that most major consoles are never even released in China, let alone are launched there.

IRAQI PARLI AMENTARY ELECTION

Hussain al-Sharistani
State of Law
 
Ayad Allawi
Al-Iraqiya
Barham Salih
Kurdistani Alliance

In the midst of a bloody civil war, the Shia Islamist party of Al-Iraqiya led by Hussain al-Sharistani wins a large majority of seats. President Adil Abdul-Mahdi, a majority Shia Muslim himself, welcomes the victory with 'hope that majority rule shall continue in Iraq and civil strife shall soon cease". China, Russia and Iran support the Shia government's subjugation of the Sunni minority. No official response is forthcoming from the US while the EU "abhors the Iraqi government's response to 'civil strife'" and promises sanctions if the regime persists.

{President Barack Obama, StateSec John Kerry and NSC Director Sam Power confer in the decision room}

If we come out against the regime we admit that our policy in Iraq was a failure, if we support it we alienate Europe but can probably get them to follow.

Our policy? I ran against that sh**t. And i'm pretty sure the world remembers when that monkey-looking  was behind the desk

I miss Saddam...

Nods of concurrence all 'round.

Footage of Bradley Manning is released by an anonymous online source via WikiLeaks, in which he appears to be wearing a dress, make-up and other traditionally feminine apparel with hands cuffed. The former Army Private seems to be crying in the photos, which appear to have been taken by military detention facility personnel. Parallels will be drawn between this and the Abu Ghraib detention facility fiasco of a few years earlier.



 Julian Assange will plead not guilty to charges brought against him in a US court. But not so fast... Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott will fulfil a campaign pledge of not "hav[e}[ing] an Australian's rights abused so flagrantly".
Is the Amero-Australian War as prophesised by the Houser brothers imminent?

20/08/14
AFGHAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

With most of the Operation Enduring Freedom coalition's intra-national militaries withdrawn, the US Army stands alone at polling booths across deserts and mountains as President Hamid Karzai prepares to step down.


Mohammed Fahim  Sima Samar
47.65%        >        38.19%

Violence occurs at several barely-guarded Indian consulates due to the election's strain on US troops whose presence at polling stations is considered more impotant.
With such an expectedly close race between a drug trafficker and a women's rights activist, US, UN and NATO officials push for a November runoff in the hopes that what remains of their troops will vote for Samar. Unfortunately for them, Fahim wins the runoff comfortably and is sworn in on 7/12/14.

SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM

Devo Max
Yes 53% No 47%

Full Independence
Yes 34% No 66%

Alexander Salmond's SNP government at Holyrood take the results of the long-awaited two-question referendum as a partial victory as does Ed Miliband's Labour government at Westminster. Little had changed in the electorate's estimations of independence in two years since the announcement of the referendum. If anything, the answer to the full independence question was an improvement of 2% for the 'Yes Scotland' campaign and the devolutionary mandate a definite success.
 Prime Minister Miliband and First Minister Salmond confer to discuss the extent of maximum devolution. They will agree to Scotland's retaining of sterling as her fiscal currency, the British monarch remaining as Head of State and the general move of the UK to federal status.

As election day nears, President and House GOP reach a 'Grand Bargain' to partially privatize social security, close the Medicare Part D 'Donut Hole' and raise capital gains taxes on those earning over 1 million dollars to lower the deificit.  The plan provides that Social Security be cut by 1.5 % of it's current cost annually until 2081 when it will be no more, meaning Americans born today will have to save up. The provision can be halted by Executive order or Congressional decree; reverted by supermajorities in both houses. Pundits consider it a law without claws but it's passage still hurts it's proponents in the polls.


It will pass the House with most Republicans and a few DLCers supporting it; and will be dropped by the Democratically-controlled Senate. Obama and his mostly Republican supporters will wait for the GOP Senate newcomers to take their seats in a McConnell-led Seante before pushing the bill any further.

IRAQI CIVIL WAR INTENSIFIES
Conflict erupts in the capital of Baghdad, where secularists confront Shia and Sunni militants as well as the security forces, dirtying the name of the secular Al-Iraqiyaa party as well as the Ba'athist movement further. Car bombings increase in the predominantly Kurdish northern regions where Prime Minister al-Sharistani will deploy troops.

US WITHDRAWS FROM AFGHANISTAN

 After thirteen long years and President Mohammed Fahim's inauguration, US troops will fully withdraw from the country, leaving it to fend for itself by the end of the year. One of the President's first hign visibility decisions will be to host talks with Indian President Shri Panjab Mukherjee and declare peace between Hindu and Muslim nations.

WAR IN PAKISTAN ESCALATES

 President Obama will redeploy many troops and divert others to Pakistan to the dissaproval of much of his liberal base and delight of neocons who he see it as a new opportunity to focus on one mission.

STATE OF THE UNION

"With an independent Afghanistan now free to govern itself, it is important that we concert our efforts wholly in Pakistan to finally destroy the Haqqani Network and restore peace to the whole of the region. America is going to need stable partners when the fighting is done and that requires funding for training our Pakistani collaborators with the know-how to get that job done. I would like to take a moment to applaud our brave troops who have served us all well.
 In Iraq, we are witnessing the price we are having to pay for an unnecessary and costly war. The United States condemns all prosecution on ethnic or religious grounds but through sanctions and our condemnation only will we work to stop them. For we are learning I hope, as have all great empires, that we cannot fight more than one war at a time. The War on Drugs, the War on Poverty and the War on Women must all end if we are to win this actual war in Pakistan. Let's win this war for something...
On spending cuts, I will not take any one program off the table as you should know by now. Some of you are new around here, but all of you have faced elections knowing that it's always safer to say what people want than do what needs to be done. Well now you have that chance. It may be the deal breaker that swings your constituents votes the other way but it's what the next generation needs. When our seniors are given the choice between their own Social Security cheques and the paychecks of their grandchildren, they will not be selfish. They will do what's right, and so should this Congress.
 We will make these cuts so that we can provide for the next great generation of Americans. So that we don't go the way of Greece, Italy and Spain. We want a strong America where everybody plays by the rules and a strong governemnt that plays by the rest of the world's rules."

The speech is viewed as a challenge by the President's own party members in congress and as plagiarism by one New Jersey governor, Christopher J Christie who takes credit for "our seniors will not be selfish".

ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER RE-OPENS

The long awaited memorial to the Septemper 11th attacks and adjoing streets open to the public in early 2015. The leaves on the Survivor Tree have not yet regrown but Governor Cuomo and Mayor Christine Quinn both deliver rousing speeches intended to awaken the civic pride and rememberance of all New Yorkers. A surprise visit by President Barack H Obama is expected but never transpires, but as former mayor Rudy Giuliani once prophesised, "the skyline will be made whole again," and New Yorkers agree that it has.

EURASIAN UNION ESTABLISHED

The economic and political integration of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, the Russian federation Tajikistan is solidified when President Vladimir and other less notable national leaders sign their nations up for what critics call "a restoration of the Soviet Union".

A single currency is not ruled out at the meeting, whereupon the member nations hoped to implement measures in light of the EU financial crisis.
