Mr. Washington, many have called STRIKE a vigilante organization, or rouge nation, after they severed tis with the United States. What say you?
First off, I'd like to say that I have no grudge with Tyrus, or any of her employees. I respect the good work they do around the world. But we do not need unsanctioned "world police," unanswerable to anyone. Governments were created for that very reason, to make people with any sort of power answerable to a higher power, but one duly elected. No one asked STRIKE to do what they d, and f they decided to kill innocents, there is no way to stop them but by force. As Vice President, I have constructed several ways to do what STRIKE does around the world, with people who know there will be consequences for doing wrong. Most are classified or in development, but you've already met the Titanium Legion, our international emergency response team. STRIKE will be welcomed back with open arms, and fully funded, if Tyrus chooses to swallow her pride and stop holding a grudge. But in my opinion, they are illegal vigilantes, and cannot be allowed to operate if we wish for civilization to continue. After all, what if I decided I knew what was best for America, and took the law into my own hands, killing who I saw fit?
Relevant questions welcomed.
