Specter's been explaining everything to the financiers in a conference, and I think he's managed to win most of them over so far. They've decided to return funding to its original state from back before the SMD was ever founded (huge step up from how things have been going ever since) and then step up recruitment for the Military Department (and then they send troops to every other Division's Military Department). But, it's not like we can plop a recruiting booth down on a street corner, so we won't be getting much in the way of recruits for a little while. Not long enough to seriously mess us up, but long enough for things to be short-handed down at Central Command.
So, disaster averted so far. If he can win everyone else in that conference room over, then we might actually end up with a surplus. I'm surprised the guys at Central Command let Specter do this; normally, they want to talk to the financiers themselves.
We'll keep you informed if anything else comes up.
