Near the end of second scenario, "It's All Mine!", I tried to rescue those trapped by the earthquake with the Chinese drill, but the faulty drill blew up. Then I had to choose someone to blame for it. One of the options was "Blame The Powers That Be", but it didn't say what will happen if I pick that. I was intrigued by it, but scared what might happen to me. What could've happened?
I tried it tonight, and it didn't seem to have any direct effect (Maybe it's random?). However, the Chinese were very happy that I didn't blame them, and I got something like a +50 boost from them.
