World War III

As World War III expanded into the Atlantic, the state of New York was attacked by Soviet-sponsored terrorists, particularly in New York City when they tried to hold several landmarks hostage as means for U.S. forces to pull out from Europe. The combined efforts of the military, the National Guard of both New York and New Jersey, and the law enforcement of both states foiled their plans. In addition, there were alleged sightings of Soviet submarines and freighters off the coast of Long Island.

The 21st Century

On September 11, 2001, New York City was targeted by the World Revolution Army; a mere 12 years from the first terrorist attack at the time of World War III.
