Oh glorious dawn! Only the hardest-hearted Sibirian (or exhausted power ranker) could fail to smile as the flat grey horde are repulsed by the warmer colors, gentler hearts and simpler units to their south. Bukhara has flipped but not not fallen. Is it the mountains or simply a lack of will that stay Sibir's heavy boots from finishing this conquest?
Worth noting: Kruger has now annexed five of his eight cities on this slide. Whether for speeding up the Vietnam invasion or preparing for an inevitable attempt to break through the Sibir meatgrinder that once doomed the Trungs, either way this is a good sign for cyboergs and a worrisome one for the rest of the world.
