President of Daloon - Summary
There is continuing unrest in the refugee camps in Daloon. Zefran elements continue to sneak across the border from Zefra into Daloon to attack refugees; the Zefran government argues that the refugee camps are providing shelter to insurgents who cross into Zefra to attack innocent Bongos... a likely story!
In the meantime a UN-backed coalition force is moving into the area to deal with instability in Zefra. This may be a solution to the problems in Zefra, so it would be wise to give this force some support. However the people of Daloon have always been suspicious of foreign troops operating in Daloon.
All this is happening just as things are starting to look good for the people of Daloon.
You are concerned about the very good relationship between Zefra and China. Chinese companies have been operating in Daloon, mainly to invest in the natural gas fields. But in terms of government-to-government, you have always been hesitant to develop a closer relationship with Beijing.
You are very concerned about rumours about rogue elements in Zefra getting their hands on nuclear waste and missile parts. With the current levels of unrest, this could be a recipe for a dirty bomb; and someone might want to toss it across the border into Daloon.
But lately TOKEN has been picking up contracts all over the South Pacific region, including several in Zefra. Given the reputation that TOKEN has for trying to make a buck, you wonder if some of your secrets are being passed through TOKEN to elements in Zefra, or even to TOKEN's apparent friends in Beijing, who could be passing them on to Zefra.
Keep Daloon and its people safe.
Keep non-Daloon forces from rampaging in Daloon; this applies to Zefran elements crossing the border, but also to foreign troops of the UN-backed coalition.
Encourage non-governmental organizations to provide aid to the refugees in the camps; otherwise the Daloon government would have to fill the bill.
Seek peace along the border with Zefra.
Criteria for Decision Making
Choose measures that keep Daloon out of its neighbor's troubles.
Choose aternatives that keep costs to the Daloon government (and taxpayers) down; get foreigners to cover costs wherever possible -- the coalition, the US government, the Chinese, the NGOs -- anyone other than the people of Daloon.
