Part 2 – The Patriots

From the the Philosopher's Legacy and the Snake Eater Ops team (Zero, Big Boss, Para-Medic, Sigint), Zero transforms the Philosophers into the Patriots, dedicated to reuniting the world in honor of the Boss's final wishes. Ocelot joins the unit, but stays in the Soviet Union as an informant.  Zero proceeds to turn Big Boss into an idol and hero, to lead the world as an icon.

Zero, with his new influence at the CIA, disbands the FOX unit

1971 - Big Boss creates FOXHOUND.

Big Boss rescues EVA from Hanoi and requests her to join the Patriots, which she does.

Big Boss starts to becomes disillusioned with the Patriots.

Big Boss is wounded in combat and falls into a coma.  Zero has Dr. Clark (Para-Medic) begin cloning Big Boss in order to preserve the Patriots' icon.   

1972 - The Twin Snakes (David, as Solid Snake, and Eli, as Liquid Snake) are born as a product of what’s called the Les Enfants Terribles Project. EVA volunteers as the surrogate mother. Some time later, the project successfully produces yet a third clone, Solidus.  Unlike Solid and Liquid however, Solidus is an exact clone of Big Boss - Liquid and Solid were affected by gene-manipulation to make one of them a "dominant gene" super soldier, as well to give them both short lifespans.  Solid is the "recessive" clone and Liquid is the "dominant" clone, however Liquid actually mistakenly thought the reverse.

Big Boss leaves the Patriots (and FOXHOUND) after learning of Les Enfants Terribles. EVA and Ocelot begin to lose faith in Zero.

Big Boss fights alongside the Studies and Observations Group (SOG), the Green Berets and the Wild Geese.

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker                                                                             

Big Boss creates the Militaires Sans Frontières (MSF), a country-less, stateless "for-hire" army.  

The MSF is hired by the Colombian Government to work with their army.  Big Boss's unit ambushes Kazuhira Miller and the guerrilla unit he is leading, wiping them out and almost killing him. Miller is eventually recruited by Big Boss and becomes MSF's second in command.

1973 - A mysterious armed force (actually CIA) invades Costa Rica, a nation without a military.  They begin shipping nukes into a secret base whose purpose is to develop a Metal Gear Peace Walker.  CIA Central America Station Chief "Hot" Coldman develops Peace Walker so that its "AI" (based on the Boss' CIA records) will automatically retaliate in case of a nuclear strike.  This would theoretically ensure MAD (mutually assured destruction) deterrence, since there would be no failure in the final "human" step to start a nuclear holocaust.  However he believes that a test nuclear launch is necessary to prove to the world that Peace Walker will not flinch.

Huey Emmerich is hired into the Peace Walker Project to help develop the "reptile brain" (movement) of the AI of the Metal Gear.  Dr Strangelove, a former associate of the Boss, is hired to develop the "mammal" (decision-making) part of the AI.

1974 - November 4th: Big Boss and the MSF are hired by Paz Ortega Andrade and Ramon Galvez Mena of the Costa Rican University for Peace, to repel Coldman's CIA forces. Galvez is soon exposed as a KGB agent named Zadornov.  The KGB's secret plan is that once the MSF gets to Coldman, Soviet forces will take over and launch a nuke at Cuba, making it look like the US initiated a pre-emptive strike on the Soviets.  Then Zadornov would kill Big Boss in order to make him a martyr and fuel further Central American unrest for the US.

Paz is much later exposed to be an agent for Zero's Cipher group, another name for Zero's Patriots.

With Paz and the Costa Ricans’ help, the MSF establish “Motherbase” on an abandoned offshore oil rig.

November 10th: The MSF enter Costa Rica and begin operations against Coldman's CIA forces. They are aided by Nicaraguan Sandinista refugees Amanda and her brother Chico.  Huey Emmerich defects to the MSF after learning of ex-CIA chief Coldman’s plan to launch a pre-emptive “deterrent” nuke.

November 23rd: Coldman sets Metal Gear "Peace Walker" to destroy MSF's Mother Base with a nuclear strike to prove that PW is willing and able to launch a nuke without hesitation.  KGB agent Zadornov shoots Coldman, assumes control and changes the target to Cuba as per the KGB plan to incriminate the US.  Zadornov is about to kill Big Boss when the MSF and Sandinistan forces come in to the rescue and arrest Zadornov. However, in his dying moments, Coldman triggers Peace Walker - still set to fire on Cuba. He is willing to sacrifice Cuba in order to prove that his PW AI deterrent will work.  Zadornov had previously ordered Strangelove to send data to PW simulating a Soviet launch so that it would initiate a strike against Cuba.  Unfortunately this fake Soviet launch data is also sent to NORAD by PW.  Coldman gambles that the US will be too "human" to launch and start a nuclear holocaust, thus proving his PW theory and ensuring peace.

Big Boss fights PW to stop the launch on Cuba, while the US prepares to retaliate against the non-existent Soviet launch.  Big Boss tries to convince the US joint chiefs of staff that the launch is a fake but they refuse to stop - they will actually launch.  Peace Walker's AI (based on the Boss' personality records) chooses to drown itself in the ocean, killing the false signal and preventing a nuclear war.

Big Boss and Huey Emmerich use parts recovered from the Peace Walker AI to create their own Metal Gear, ZEKE. Kaz Miller convinces Big Boss to keep the nuke from Peace Walker and put it on ZEKE. The MSF  unofficially becomes the world's seventh nuclear power.

Post-November 23rd:  MSF sends some of its soldiers to Angola to participate in the country's war for independence.

Paz/Pacifica Ocean hijacks Metal Gear ZEKE from the MSF and attempts to convince Big Boss to rejoin Zero and his new organization, Cipher. Zero's Cipher will use what will later be called "SOP" (Sons of the Patriots) to control all weapons and soldiers.  When Big Boss refuses, she attempts to use ZEKE to launch a nuclear strike at the East Coast of the United States, with the intention of framing the MSF.  Big Boss battles MG ZEKE and critically damages it.  Paz/Pacifica escapes into the ocean. Kaz reveals to Big Boss that he always knew that Paz was a Cipher agent, but at the same time supported involvement with her cause because he knew that gaining Motherbase as well as Metal Gear ZEKE was a necessary step in embracing the coming war economy.  

Big Boss begins talking about "Outer Heaven".

Together they create a new military group, the Diamond Dogs. While retrieving Huey Emmerich from Skull Face's XOF base, he encounters Sahelanthropus, a new Metal Gear.

Late 1999/Early 2000: After losing his faith in humanity (especially after Big Boss’ betrayal), Zero (and possibly Sigint) commissions the development of four neural AIs, headed by a core AI to inherit the Patriots from him. The four AIs are codenamed GW, TJ, AL and TR, and the core AI named JD. To set up their eventual activation of these AIs, they also developed a “data filter” program that was submitted to every military center and civilian computers (the latter via an OS program) under the guise of counteracting the supposed effects of the Y2K bug. In actuality, this program was developed to manage, censor and disseminate information that isn't convenient to the Patriots, which would be activated as soon as GW was completed.
