Security Dilemma
Security Dilemma by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My 16th submission to DYOS VIII.

The Russian equipment comes courtesy of the original Rise of the Reds mod, which I also used midway into DYOS 10. When the project merged with the ShockWave team to form SWR Productions, its vision was drastically revised, ditching the World War III-esque realism in favour of what was basically Red Alert 3.5 (it was actually my first exposure to the RA3 VOs, since replaced). While I was decidedly disappointed by the Russian rework, ROTR's subsequent merge with another team that brought in the European Continental Alliance was a breath of fresh air.

Mjwhear was a real-life friend of Stylesrj who was considered one of the worst spammers in the history of the project, often leaving huge chunks of white space in his comics from the default Paint canvas. His in-story alias, "Mjcommie", frequently featured as a side character and off-and-on antagonist in the Styleses' comics.

The code phrase at the end is a nod to the ReBoot episode "Talent Night"
