Tragedy in Terragrigia
By Donatello Luzzaschi

A beast slouches toward Europe to be born, and that is the Federal Bioterrorism Commission. What is unique about this beast is that the Federal Species Protection Committee that gave birth to it was no beast itself, and was intended to assist the U.S. in its counter-bioterrorism efforts. Unfortunately, Europe has become the home to a tragedy that has roused the beast.

The FBC has taken complete control of the biohazard outbreak in Terragrigia, and has in effort barred the participation of other countries.

Terragrigia is an aquapolis that was developed jointly by U.S. and European teams to research and develop alternative energy sources. The impetus behind the city's development was twofold: the Europeans wanted to halt climate change, and the Americans hoped to develop energy sources for Africa. To that end the city was placed strategically in the Mediterranean Sea.

Terragrigia has enjoyed cooperative administration by both sides, and has been held up as a model of successful U.S.-European cooperation.

The terrorist attack in Terragrigia put the kibosh on that.

According to conditions stipulated in the treaty outlining Terragrigia's governance, both the U.S. and Europe have equal authority during a terrorist attack. Only "during the event of bioterrorism" does the FBC assume a leadership role.

The FBC was formed with the express purpose of dealing with threats posed by terrorism. They have a crack squad of soldiers on permanent standby, and by that measure, they have the most expansive charter of any organization in Europe. During a time of crisis, they have the blessing of the U.S. to take charge and control the situation.

And that is how the FBC came to be in charge of the current chaos in Terragrigia. FBC Commissioner Morgan Lansdale has announced that EU involvement will not be tolerated while his organization deals with the crisis.

European authorities pressed Lansdale to respect their rights in this matter, and they were able to convince him to bring in Commander Clive R. O'Brian of the BSAA, a well respected international civilian group. The problem, however, is even though O'Brian himself is a bioterrorism expert, he is working with virtually no support staff, which limits the scope of actions he can take.

While the story on the tragedy is still unfolding, it would seem that the FBC is ignorant of the extent of the suffering in Terragrigia.

Whether Lansdale has the ability and the intelligence to handle this attack without becoming a Yeatsean beast also remains to be seen.

ヨーロッパには一匹の怪物が出没している。その名はFBCだ。
合衆国が対バイオテロのために設立したFBCこと連邦生物防衛委員会。
元来、怪物と呼ばれるような組織ではない。

だが現在ヨーロッパでは非難の的だ。

テラグリジアで発生したバイオテロに対し、対策指揮をFBCが事実上独占して他国の介入を拒んでいるからである。

テラグリジアは代替エネルギーの研究開発のため、合衆国と欧州各国が共同で開発した。

ヨーロッパ側は気候変動対策を目的に据え、合衆国側はアフリカ大陸の電力供給戦略から地中海に建設された経緯がある。

現在に至るまでは両陣営から派遣された共同委員によって
テラグリジアは大過なく管理運営されてきたと言えよう。

ところが、今回のバイオテロで事態は一変した…

条約では、テロ対策は合衆国とヨーロッパが同等の権限を有するとされていたが、唯一バイオテロという特殊な状況に関しては"FBCが対処を主導する"とされていたためである。

FBCはバイオテロ対処を目的に創設され、直属の緊急展開部隊を常時待機させるなど、欧州陣営とは比較にならない組織規模を持つ。

非常事態発生時には彼らが事態収拾の主力になるという、合衆国の意向も働いた結果だった。

テラグリジア対策本部の指揮を執ることになった、FBC長官モルガン・ランズディールは、欧州陣営の介入を拒否しFBCのみで対策にあたることを宣言した。

これに対し欧州陣営は自らにも権限があると主張。
ランズディール氏と対立した。

未確認ながらFBCは甚大な人的被害を蒙っているという情報もある。

ランズディール氏がその豪腕と知力による決断によって、バイオテロを払いのけ、自らの怪物のイメージを払拭できるかは記者にも分からない…
