When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield - Chapter 36
When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield chapter 36
A UN OCHA investigation team entered the Camarnia government building.
They met with the minister, shook hands, took pictures, and held working-level meetings and interviews with the press.
There was nothing special about it. The schedule went smoothly without any fuss.
However, Jake’s expression, which had taken a step back and was wary of his surroundings, was not very good.
It was because it was a problem from the entrance of the office building.
At the search desk, I had to hand over weapons and equipment such as an MP7 submachine gun, Glock 17, extra ammunition, bayonets, smoke grenades, and flash grenades, but the important thing came next.
Police officers from the government building came out in droves to watch and demonstrate neglect of duty.
They even laughed and chatted as if they were looking at a strange toy or a new toy.
A roar of Russian mixed with Camarnian was heard, some of which even Jake understood.
For example, words such as small, expensive, cool, etc.
Jake’s head shook and his expression hardened.
It’s the same now.
After the event at the government building, the minister and vice minister were seen off, but the police were watching the UN OCHA investigation team, not the guards.
To be precise, the situation where only women stare intently.
‘… It’s beyond imagination.’
Jake’s expression hardened.
He knew that some of the police in Camarnia were weak enough to be interfered with by the vigilantes, but he did not expect that even the police at the government building would be lax in discipline.
In this way, the police force should not be expected from the outskirts of the city.
The same was true of the army, already weakened by civil war, fragmentation, lack of training, and casualties.
In other words, only Charlie’s team can be trusted.
Meanwhile, Kang-tae’s voice came through Jake’s in-ear radio.
-Car No. 2, this is Car No. 1. I’ll recover the bottle first.
When I entered and looked around, Kang-tae was in front of the lobby getting the weapons he had handed in from the police back.
It was a situation that was promised in advance, and fortunately it was going well.
Jake made eye contact and nodded.
“Car No. 2, check receipt.”
Kang-tae and Rachel were to receive their weapons, guard the entrance first, and keep the lead when approaching by vehicle.
Both of them were reliable.
The same goes for Marcus and Jose, but Kang-tae was so great that he overwhelms the experience of Delta Force and Navy SEALs in terms of skills.
There was a belief that no matter what happened, it could be resolved with preemptive measures.
Even so, perhaps because of the pathetic police, I felt very uncomfortable.
Soon after, the UN OCHA investigation team passed through the security checkpoint and received a final farewell, and Jake also received all of the weapons and equipment he had submitted.
Marcus and Jose, who followed, finished their preparations and finally left the building.
At the same time, several people’s eyes turned to the sky.
“Oh, it’s snowing. For some reason, it was quite cold today… … .”
The sleet was blowing like someone on the investigation team was muttering. The snow was piled up to the point where even the floor was muddy.
Jose raised his coat collar and shook his head.
“Ugh, it’s still cold, but it’s snowing… Tsk, I hope the roads don’t freeze.”
Jake also shook his head.
The biggest concern when it snowed was the freezing of the roads.
It was clear that it would be difficult to maneuver properly. On top of that, if he was attacked, he might really become a hive of bullets.
Although there are B4 class bulletproof vehicles, they will be pierced like foil by 7.62mm bullets.
Of course, there are snow chains for each car and portable spikes to wear on the walker, but that doesn’t mean it’s all-round.
After checking the amount of snow and the soggy snow on the floor, Jake pressed the transmit button on the radio.
“This is Car No. 2, as of the current time, all vehicles should board and move carefully while checking eyes.”
-3 car, good reception.
-1 car, good reception.
After hearing the answer in succession, people started to get into the car.
A total of 12 people, including 6 members of the UN OCHA investigation team, 1 guide assigned by the Camarnia government, and 5 members of the security team.
As soon as the boarding was over, the vehicle began to move into the snow with the sound of the SUV engine.

Office of the Director, Office of Foreign Relations, Department of State, Washington, DC, USA.
Director Robert has a new report.
It was about Jake and Rachel sent to Camarnia, but also about the UN OCHA investigation team.
All because the United States was involved.
To be precise, it was to move a UN OCHA investigation team to give G&G Corp the work related to Camarnia.
In the process, I requested a security service.
It wasn’t difficult.
It’s not about moving the UN board, it’s all about putting pressure on OCHA to send an investigation team.
It also went through sponsoring companies and brokers in the middle to erase as much traces of the US government as possible.
Inevitably, the influence of the United States would remain, but that was not bad.
Only then will UN OCHA take notice.
Robert, who received all the results as a report, looked down and confirmed the future plan in Camarnia.
[Contract for regular army training instructors in the Republic of Camarnia]
This was similar to the previous dispatch of the UN OCHA investigation team.
Detours, pressure, and producing desired results.
This too was not difficult.
This was because Camarnia, unlike its neighboring countries Russia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia, lacked economic power or defense power, making it similar to the poorest countries in Africa.
In addition, the United States is also helping the existence of Camarnia through Europe and NATO.
Unless it was a major internal affair, this level of work could be controlled.
At best, it was a short-term contract with G&G Corp as a training instructor for the regular army.
Robert, who soon shook off his thoughts, looked at the next contents.
It was as smooth as flowing water.
It was because the work to be done while being a drill instructor was very natural and meticulously organized.
For example, under the pretext of the regular army’s real-life experience, tasks such as arresting suspicious people related to Sergei, suppressing groups, and sending interrogation experts to obtain information.
There could be inhumane things like the Guantanamo detention center if we went wrong, but we had to accept that much.
It was to catch Sergei, who has been following only after the establishment of the Foreign Cooperation Bureau.
Robert’s expression immediately grew heavy.
‘This time, I want a proper result, not a trace… … .’
It wasn’t just about arresting Sergei or gathering evidence in major cases involving him.
That’s good, but I was hoping that the facts I was guessing would be confirmed.
‘… The real culprit.’
It was one of the things Robert felt while searching the Taril Islands in the South China Sea this time.
To be precise, the fact that Sergei may not be the main culprit.
He didn’t seem to be the culprit in all of this.
Of course, judging from the circumstances and the results of the pursuit, it was clear that Sergei was in the middle of everything.
However, the situation was different for confirmed data fabrication or omission in the Taril Islands.
Unlike the past, when they ran away one step ahead, manipulating all traces was a very difficult task for international terrorists.
To enter there, the prestige of being a terrorist was not enough.
You had to have a huge network, and you had to have a huge amount of money to give to that network.
In other words, it was necessary to see that there was a separate accomplice who was on the same level as Sergei or a main criminal who was higher up.
Of course, Sergei was also a former Russian special forces officer and was born into a family with vested interests, but that wasn’t enough.
In that respect, Robert put more weight on the main culprit than the accomplice.
If you go into the middle of the South China Sea, buy and test missiles, and have the power to touch several countries, you will have Sergei under your command.
‘If only I could capture the circumstances, physical evidence, or the existence of the upper line that was reported and instructed… … .’
At the end of that thought, Robert came up with an available manpower he could apply for.
Other mercenaries from G&G Corp and even undercover agents from the Foreign Cooperation Agency in Eastern Europe.
Even if it wasn’t a big power, it would be helpful enough.
If the situation is certain, I had the idea to send Devguru, Delta Force, and ISA (Intelligence Support Activity), which are tier 1 special forces.
As they are affiliated with the US Army, there is a high possibility that Russia will cause a disturbance if they are caught, but if the evidence is clear, of course they had to endure it.
And, more likely, it got away, but there was also a chance that Sergei was in Camarnia.
Maybe it worked out this time.

In front of the restaurant facing the Caspian Sea beach.
As Rachel pulled over slowly alongside the black cars, Jake’s voice came over the radio.
-This is Car No. 2, everyone is ready to get off.
“Car No. 1, good reception.”
Instead of Rachel, who was parked, she answered briefly and looked through the front and side windows.
And I was sure again.
‘… It’s here.’
It was the place where the gunfight was going to take place in the snow.
The UN OCHA investigative team and local lawmakers were to meet and eat, and when they were done eating, the assailants were scheduled to attack.
Of course, the games I played and the time zone didn’t match at all.
It was because Camarnia came in faster than before as I was solving many cases.
But the situation was the same.
From dinner appointments with the UN OCHA investigation team to restaurants and snowy roads.
In the scene we played, we saw heavy snow instead of sleet, but other than that everything was the same.
The foreign cooperation bureau’s tricks and Sergei’s bad deeds that we saw in the cinematic video will still be the same.
But the most important fact was different.
A white Nissan car across the street.
‘It’s the same, it’s the same… … .’
That vehicle was a kind of reconnaissance unit that started the battle.
I was going to call the troops while looking at our restaurant’s position, and I was going to join them and attack them.
As a result, just as he was about to radio the Nissan vehicle, Jake’s voice was heard, just like in the game.
-This is car number 2, everyone, get off while paying attention to the white Nissan car on the opposite road.
“Car No. 1, good reception.”
I got off with a short answer.
Fortunately, they weren’t attacking right now, they were supposed to appear near the end of the meal, but before they knew it, Jake was controlling the people with his sharp eyes.
“Move quickly in the direction of the restaurant. Don’t turn your head.”
After the seven-member UN OCHA investigation team, including the guide, hurries in following Jake’s bloody glance.
As soon as we knew it was safe inside the restaurant, Jake radioed right away.
– Car No. 1, secure the front door, Car No. 3, secure the back door.
“Car No. 1, good reception.”
After giving a short answer, I moved to my seat with Rachel.
Table near the front door.
I sat behind a solid pillar and looked out through the window, but the white Nissan was still standing still.
And not long after, men with rough impressions appeared.
At first glance, they were Muslims.
It was around the time when I called in the reinforcements and had plenty of room, and they were smoking and staring at me, so I radioed the related information.
Rachel, who was looking through the window on the other side of me, frowned.
“lee… I’m not sure, but I think I saw an RPG.”
“When the rear seat door was opened, it looked like it was leaning against the backrest. It appears to have also planted a warhead.”
“… … .”
I was going to ask if it was a firearm like the AK-74, but I stopped.
Rachel, like Jake, was also a keen eye. A genius who came from the Department of Homeland Security and the CIA, especially adept at finding and observing things.
If she doubted it, it should have been 99% certain.
However, there was no RPG-7 in my memory.
The scenario I knew was fighting fanatics armed with 5.45mm AK-74s and wide machetes.
I let out a sigh.
“under… Dude, the difficulty seems to be gradually getting tougher?”
