A new administration gained election in Pineland due to domestic and foreign issues, and quickly moved to address them. They increased border security measures on the always-unfriendly Atlantican border, and sent the military out once more to deal with the Islamic Brotherhood of Jihad. They dropped the mothers of all bombs on Brotherhood forces throughout their self-proclaimed Islamic States. Attica, Kalaria, and Kemalia saw Brotherhood forces smashed again and again with the most aggressive firepower advantage seen in decades. And when Krasnovian-backed mercenaries moved to contest them in Kemalia, Pineland’s military unleashed a similar mixed fire campaign of air and artillery assets that left them broken and bleeding and retreating back across the border in extreme disorder. The world took notice of Pineland’s change in policies.
