One of the senior Firsts strode into the meeting room, and assembled SOLDIERS snapped to attention.
"We have received word that Wutai has just run a test of military technology of unprecedented power."
Grainy images of a massive magical barrier flickered up on the room's main screen, and a murmur ran through the room.
"From the sudden change in technological capacity it is obvious that Wutai has allied itself with dangerous continental terrorist groups, and most likely has appropriated Shinra military technology."
"Later today Shinra will formally demand the surrender of any and all misappropriated company assets, the handover of a suspected terrorist known to be currently on Wutain soil, and cessation of certain activities detrimental to international trade. If no agreement can be reached, Shinra will employ military force to reclaim its property and apprehend individuals considered to be a threat."
"This is not a declaration of war, so no getting ahead of yourselves. Also, friends and family learn about this when official announcements are made and not before. Any questions?"
