sake of global safety. Now one of these missions has gone wrong! This
is the harrowing tale of an early adventure of the "i-team" - the special

of the great udd war.

21st of April 2002 was the day of the first round of the
presidential elections. The two candidates chosen by french people for
the 2nd round were right wing Jacques Chirac, and fascist,

what I like.
