strange bedfellows


They are enemies, they are archrivals, and they have conflicting ideologies against each other. The web as you see above looks particularly very intricate, given each country’s animosity towards each other.

These countries all have one thing in common: its establishment is a dangerous precedent, and it should be eliminated. Indeed, it is just a start. Strange bedfellows will soon find themselves working together, uneasily united in an unexpected vantage point of history.
