On April 2nd, 2026, following losses in the European and Pacific theaters, the United States of America withdrew the majority of its post-war garrisons, leaving behind light security forces for teams searching for alien artifacts.
Three days later, on April 5th, Iran invaded Iraq, supported by various Iraqi militant groups. Faced with the possibility of Iranian rule, Kurdistan declared itself independent from Iraq (prior to this, Kurdistan had been an autonomous region located within Iraq, despite prior attempts at becoming independent). Several weeks into the fighting, The Kingdom of Jordan, and Saudi Arabia joined into the conflict, aligned against Iran. Both sides conducted operations against the remaining US Forces remaining within the region.
