Fair Accounting

I don't want to be the guy who says anything positive about the enemy while they're in the midst of attacking our friends to the west, but we've had some more scout reports from the Union operatives watching the main UAS camps. Word also came in again this morning from the people observing the border where the UAS is funneling people from south/central America.

The assumption was that the UAS would be using those folks as cannon fodder in this war. I don't know how many of them are being rushed out to the front, but from the intelligence related to me, I can't imagine it's very many.

I'm not trying to make the UAS look good here, but propaganda and lies are how we used to do things when armed conflict broke out. It serves no higher purpose to turn our enemies into heartless monsters. They're people, just like us. And at least some of them seem to be doing the right thing.

UAS soldiers are the ones making sure these folks make it across the border safely. They're the ones fighting the undead--something, you may recall, they've been reluctant to do for the most part--and once groups of immigrants are safely behind barriers, those same soldiers make sure their needs are being met. Food, blankets, even medical care.

The same thing is happening at the main camp. These immigrants don't seem to be unhappy with their lot. They aren't being pressed into service. Doesn't look like they're really allowed to leave, either, but our scouts are not reporting any abuses or anything.

We've got a big day here, and I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. Sorry to cut things short, but K and I have to leave our cave for once and socialize. We'll suffer through somehow.
