Exactly. Counter-Terrorists vs. Terrorists - Gee... sound familiar? We like conflict, see the famous conflicts listed below:Counterstrike had all kinds of people up in arms about it
Why does the article post "Medal of Honor: Battlefield 3 Beta"? I'm pretty sure this article is just about Medal of Honor, which isn't the Battlefield 3 beta, right?
and in all fairness, the taliban haven't always been considered "evil" - for example when they fought the soviets. but I don't want to spark a political discussion, and no, I don't support terrorism.
Except that it's a bit more fresh in peoples minds.
It's a little different when someone looks at WW2 and thinks " my grandfather was killed there".......and someone else thinks " my brother got his leg blown off by the taliban, and I'm helping him with his rehabilitation daily".
The subjects closer to home, and should be dealt with better than a flippant "deal with it, it's just a game".
Is their going to be any back story to the tali ban campaign? Fighting as the Mujhadien, against the Soviets, with US support would be interesting.
Yeah, you have the choice of cutting all support for Afghanistan after the cold-war ends at the end of the campaign. Will you help create our own worst enemy or prevent one of the greatest US terrorist attacks before it ever happens by not dropping one of our greatest allies out in the cold on their asses. Who here loves the old Bond movies where he is actually fighting with the Mujahadeen (there really is no right way to spell it, came up with 5 different spellings from the major news outlets) or are those going to be banned from TV sooner or later. "Let history be the judge" really doesn't work if your the one write the history books.
Is there a modern military which is adhering to the Geneva conventions?
