The Incorrect Art of War [Episode 33] – The Terminal Phase

By A J Summersgill and Jim H Moreno

You turn to look at the devastation, only to see that the laptop is still in place, damaged, but fully functional. As you watch, the screen display changes one final time and you realise it is too late to stop the final signal for the Terminal Phase being broadcast.
