“Some things can’t be sacrificed.”

“The Cold War did not end, it shattered into a thousand dangerous pieces. The West has grown weak, drunk on shopping and social media. Torn about by hatred between the races, and as a result, the world is in chaos. Only Russia is willing to make the sacrifices required for victory. For there to be peace we must once again place ourselves at the head of nations. From this day forward you will become sparrows, weapons in a global struggle for power. You have been selected because of your beauty, because of your strengths, and in some cases because of your vulnerability.”

“Here we deal in psychological manipulation. You’ll be trained to determine a target’s weakness, to exploit that weakness through seduction, and to extract information.”

“You must learn to sacrifice for a higher purpose. To push yourself beyond all limitation and forget the sentimental morality with which you were raised. Or is it pride? In my experience, the proud are the first to fall.”

“Every human being is a puzzle of need. You must learn to intuit what is missing become the missing piece, and they will give you anything.”
