The President moves quickly with his staff into the Situation Room at the People's White Palace to keep up to date on the latest developments about Operation New Hope.
"Mr. President," said Chief of Staff Mr. Romeo Badillo
"It seems about 15 minutes ago an ammunition and firearms replenishment convoy was ambushed. All 10 members are dead, and all the cargo is gone."
"I see... How many aircraft do we currently have in the air?"
"1 P-3 Orion surveillance plane sir"
"I want 3 MQ-9 Reapers with Air-to-Surface capability in the air now. I also want a UH-64 Apache to escort the Bolivian President's convoy the rest of the way. And get me the goddamn generals in here."
"Yes sir, right away."
---sketchy transmission--- "Hello? Anyone there?"
"Yes the President is and the National Security Council." replied the Chief of Staff
"This is Lt. General Alanzo Porro"
"Yes general, its the President, how may I help you?"
"Sir, several of our units heading to the Governor's palace have been ambushed by the LCRL. Apparently the LCRL are much heavier equipped then originally thought."
"What's the point general?"
"Well to be quite frank sir, WE'RE GETTING THE $&*# BLOWN OUT OF US! We need reinforcements, and quick!" ---transmission lost---
"General? General you still there?"
"I dont think so sir," said an aide
"We're in a real $*%&^$@#% now aren't we?!" replied the President
"Give me an hour to come up with a recovery plan. In the mean time get those freaking drones up and that Apache."
"Yes sir, Mr. President" replied everyone
---President leaves and heads to his office---
