President of Zefra - Summary
The situation is fluid. Just a couple of months ago, you were elected President of Zefra. In the meantime a UN-backed coalition is moving into the area to deal with instability in Zefra. You want to demonstrate to the world that you can administer Zefran affairs without outside interference. However, you are prepared to be Fairly ruthless in this approach has served Zefra well in the past... at least the Bongo population of Zefra.
The Zefra Association, if you can get the various ZA factions to conform to your leadership, provides a means to improve the situation for Bongos and to hobble any political or military gains the Truscans might hope for. The magic of your relationship with the ZA is "plausible deniability" -- you can claim these are rogue elements that have no connection to your administration... as long as everyone keeps their mouths shut!
Ensure that US troops do not intervene.
Get the UN-sponsored coalition force out of Zefra and out of the South Pacific as soon as possible.
Have Zefra return to the situation before the foreign interventions (Bongos very much in charge!)
Ensure that fellow Bongos, and especially old-time cronies, benefit financially wherever possible. And ensure that those devious Truscans gain nothing!
Ensure "plausible deniability" for any covert action that might otherwise be attributable to the Zefran government.
Appear in public to welcome foreign aid, especially funds. Offer to provide assistance to the UN-backed coalition (but keep them tied up so they do not cause trouble).
