Comrade had Doctrine :Initiative.

It appears he was going naval power.

It is ours, now. I wonder what other goodies are there.

We took out our first needlejet! Unfortunately, I misjudged and the Unity Chopper ran out of fuel after taking out the jet.

I want to hear that Chopper crew's story. They're the lowly heroes of this war, armed only with a peashooter and a teaspoon of gasoline.

You are right. The thing about it is, the chopper crew died not only taking out a needlejet but saving the life of a defending Lawyer infantry. The Lawyers have literally been taking the brunt of Antimind air power.

Word gets back to Miriam through her deacon advisers. In light of the recent drone riots at Court Records and the heroism displayed by the chopper crew, Miriam is compelled to leave New Jerusalem to travel to that end of the empire. Of course, against the will of said advisers.

Court Records, Eastern Diocese, Believer Territory

Sister Miriam speaks. There is not a huge military attendance with the exception of an Empath Infantry division and Miriam's own church guard. After all, the war continues although for now, the sounds of battle are not right outside the base like it has been in the past. Most of the military is busy fighting. There are however, family members from the Chopper pilot's home city of War of the Working Man and the extended friends and family of the Lawyer infantry group that was saved from Court of Appeals.

Yes... the Chopper pilot was a former Comrade who converted to Conclave Christianity!

The speech will be in the site of a soon to be built recreation commons.

Of course, there is one group of drones holding up signs criticizing Miriam's past handling of the wars and her world reputation as a cut throat villain. She will have the city officials watch them. Usually, she would nerve staple them. But since they are of Lawyer nationality and she is in no mood to deal with the backlash from that on what is supposed to be a momentous occasion, she will let them have their little gripe session.

(my... AC2 is acting slow and not letting me post)

Quote

I know that times have been trying for the people at Court Records. But, your sacrifices have not been in vain as this is part of God's Plan. the power and truth of prayer is truly at work here, and we will be victorious in the end as we are righteous and God's chosen.

But, before we continue, I must say I was both touched and moved by the sacrifice and heroic act by Lt. Brevnorov from the City of War of the Working Man. Yes, Brevnorov was a former Comrade. But, God is forgiving and loves us all... even the godless. For, if you accept Jesus into your heart, even a Communist can come to the side of truth and love and become an instrument of God.

Now, I realize there has been in the past bad blood between we Believers, Lawyers, and Comrades. Even though many Comrades have been baptized in the Blood of Christ and now worship along side us, many are viewed still with suspicions. While God does ask us to judge, as being too accepting can lead to tragedy, I am reminded of a story from the New Testament.

In Biblical times, there was a group of people called Samaritans. They were considered untrustworthy, unclean, and just plain bad people.

Turn on your holopads to the book of Luke. Read after me.

25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.

31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.

32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.

34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

The Lt. was the Samaritan and a good neighbor. the Antimind was the robber who stripped the Lawyer's clothes. Should I have an empire of Samaritans, the Antimind would be doomed within a short time.

I ask of you... let us all BE Lt. Brevnorov!

In his honor, I give unto you... The LORD gives unto you a recreation commons! Even in this time of trials, we must keep fellowship. It will be named Brevnorov Good Samaritan Fellowship Hall.

A mural was painted in the main room of the Commons. It depicted Jesus and angels with the rotors of a copter!

Well, she WAS a councilor. Plus, she probably had to be a preacher as well and a humorous one. Otherwise, most logical folks would question some of her outright zealotry.

--But she is so good with her sermons and did you try the potluck last Friday at the Rec Common?

Well, we are pushing them back again at the field of Blood.

Not much more we can do with all that airpower. If we go further north, we will be slaughtered.

Maybe. Right now, New Jerusalem is doing Planetary Energy Grid that should be out in a bit. We do already have Neural Amplifier.

The plan is to continue pushing Doctrine Air Power.

Speaking of bothersome needlejets, Oblivion called up.

We trade a tech for Advanced military Algorithms. This gives us AAA units to take the bite out of al those jets.

How's your industrial output at this point? Can you afford to go Power or will it cripple your ability to actually build units?

I am not real comfortable with Power just yet. I am in the process of making crawlers to pump out more. The war with Antimind is very costly and it is pumping out units.

This war so far is a stalemate until air power.
