[Comic for Wednesday, February 11, 2015]


[[Colonel Barker surveys a map of the Earth.]]
Colonel Barker: I quickly drew up a plan. After identifying a pair of their operatives, I would make contact, informing them of my awareness of their conflict and their surveillance.

[[The Colonel turns his head to look over his shoulder, revealing Dexter, Patty, and Trish behind him.]]
Colonel Barker: I offered to broker a deal: in return for their "protection" against the "greys", I would "ease" them into controlling positions here on Earth: In governments, industry, corporations...

[[We have an overhead view as the Colonel paces in front of his "audience".]]
Colonel Barker: Over time, they would be able to shape Earth's sociopolitical climate to serve their cause. By the time their enemy learned what was happening, a united Earth would stand opposed to them, backed by their empire.

[[In the foreground, Dexter scowls at the Colonel.]]
Dexter: I can't believe /any/ government would sanction this kind of dirty scheme...
Colonel Barker: [Cocking an eyebrow] Who said they /did/....?
