Random Event: UN forces suffer -1DShift on reinforcement rolls
Major Heidi Clare managed to get through to UN command. She reported that the situation was bad, but manageable, and requested that the UN organise the dropping of a paratroop force to bolster her defenses while she planned the retake of Malika City. The security council, however, could not decide on the level of threat and in the delay no reinforcements were forthcoming, China requested the formation of a committee was to be formed to investigate the security council's threat system. Russia vetoed the plan for the committee. Russia questioned the alarm over the alleged "incursion", and recommended that an observer group be formed and sent within a week. To Russia's ire China vetoed the plan for the observer group.
