When you say continental americas, are you refering to any particular one, or all off them (UCAS, CAS, Aztlan, NAN)? My suspension of disbelief starts to fizzle rapidly when the number of countries involved becomes more than two. Something similar can be said regarding how high up in the governmental hierarchy you want the conspiracy to go and what you want the conspiracy to effect.
I mean, the "Operation Ghost Dance" stuff Paul A., Mike B., and I are posting now involve a bit of an international plot, but it hardly shakes the foundations of life as we know it. We figured if Ares is working on a new fighter, why not the Azzies, and if so, how could we work that into a good story? The idea that Aztlan would be working on a new fighter design didn't seem to be revolutionary enough that we would need to bring it up on plotd, so we didn't.
I guess this comes down to witholding judgement until you clarify some of the details. You don't have to give every little detail away, but a rough sketch of what you have in mind for the power scale of the story would be useful.

I'd like to know about anything going on in the UCAS government, there's a conspiracy already in there and I don't want it spoiled :)
Shouldn't be a problem, we just need to sort out a few details so we don't harm each others' plots. -- There are four kinds of homicide: felonious, excusable, justifiable and praiseworthy...
