    Zekirov and the Red Hand has returned.
    Vadim Zekirov, ruthless leader of the Red Hand has surfaced again. After their defeat a few years ago at the hands of the US Allied Forces, Zekirov went into hiding to rebuild his vehemently pro-Kremlin style communist organization. Using contacts in the world underground, Red Hand has now morphed into the Red Hand Syndicate whose purpose is to bring about Soviet Communism back to Russia and particularly the West.
    Using criminals, hackers, arms dealers, terrorist organizations and certain members of the western media, Red Hand has been waging a culture war on western youth to turn them towards its ideals but also against their leaders and each other.
    Already belived to be the dominant force in illicit arms trade, and various black money e-currency sites, Red Hand has found the financial and now para-military might to flex its muscle again.
    After nearly bringing the Russian and American economies to their knees with a series of Hacking attacks, Red Hand has siezed a small former US colonial island in the Carribean as their base of operations and jumping point for a larger assault on the west. Holding many hostages on the island makes this a tricky situation.

    The US Government has initiated the CODENAME: Thunder protocol and has dispatched a US Ranger and Marine detachment to capture or eliminate Zekirov and his henchmen to end the Red Hand Syndicate once and for all. Russia and the UK have also sent detachments with US approval to protect their interests as well...this should go smoothly...
    More INtel to follow soon...
    The Thunder returns...
