Toxin Trade was the fifth GLA operation in the War of Liberation (the war as known from the GLA perspective).
Despite the GLA victory in Adana, reports from the Aral Sea indicated that the Americans established a base and secured the region's Toxin Bunkers. As the GLA arsenal relied heavily on toxic weaponry, it was necessary for them to recapture the bunkers if they wanted to fight a chemical war against the US and China. The GLA already had an established base of operations, but the first attempt to take control of a Toxin bunker led to a chemical spill, killing the GLA captures, thanks to US commando, Colonel Burton.

The main objective was to capture four bunkers and protect them from American attacks. The secondary objective was to eliminate the American presence.
Capturing Four BunkersEdit
The chemical bunkers were old and fragile, and could be easily destroyed if left unprotected. The GLA left the operation to be headed by a Commander who previously demonstrated that US air power was not such a winnable tactic. Taking over the local GLA cell in the Aral Sea, the Commander immediately prepared the base defenses and scouted the surrounding area. Jarmen Kell himself, did what he tried his best to do and took out some lone US patrols. The GLA presence was soon detected by three American Humvees, acting as scouts. Jarmen Kell sniped as many troops and vehicles as possible, while the Americans made constant attacks on the GLA positions. These attacks were repulsed each time, but with rising casualties on both sides.
Eventually, Jarmen Kell and some disguised Bomb trucks came across the Toxin Bunkers in some distance north and west of the GLA base, which were lightly defended by US troops and Crusader Tanks. The GLA sent two armies to take out the American defenders, while Rebels went ahead and captured four of the chemical bunkers. The GLA captured more bunkers than were necessary, just in case a bunker was destroyed by the Americans.
Destroying the US BaseEdit
Noting that the US base was on an island, the GLA quickly moved in more and more of their forces to block the only two access bridges in and out of the island. Unfortunately, the Americans had a Particle Cannon somewhere on the island. Not wanting to risk the superweapon destroying the chemical bunkers, the GLA hastily moved in and assaulted the US base from both of the bridges. One of the teams located the Particle Cannon and quickly destroyed it before it could fire, while the other force took out the US Strategy Center that was bombarding the GLA. Surrounded, outnumbered and with the US base destroyed, the surviving American forces surrendered to the GLA. However, Colonel Burton managed to escape from the Aral Sea.
The capitulation of the Americans at the Aral Sea meant that the region's remaining Toxin Bunkers were now in the hands of the GLA. The terrorist organisation had become too powerful for the Americans to handle alone. In response to this, China moved in quietly instigate splinter cells and incite a power struggle within the GLA.
