Joint Crisis Committee
Set in 2023, with a freeze-date on current events placed on January 25, 2017, this committee begins its timeline with the people of USA revolting against its newly-elected leader. And as January 26 approaches, India prepares for yet another great year ahead, but rising tensions with Pakistan raise eyebrows in this regard. Raging violence along the borders has drawn attention of ISI and RAW. As years go by, the feud between the ISI and the RAW has intensified, and 2023 sees the continued efforts of USA’s 46th President to maintain USA’s stature in the world.
