MoH Taliban Renamed

The Medal of Honor Website has word from EA producer Greg Goodrich that the upcoming Medal of Honor reboot will not use the Taliban name for the non-US team in multiplayer play, and this side will instead will be called the decidedly more generic "Opposing Force." They say they have reconsidered this controversial aspect of the military shooter out of respect for soldiers and their families:

However, we have also received feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers who have expressed concern over the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer portion of our game. This is a very important voice to the Medal of Honor team. This is a voice that has earned the right to be listened to. It is a voice that we care deeply about. Because of this, and because the heartbeat of Medal of Honor has always resided in the reverence for American and Allied soldiers, we have decided to rename the opposing team in Medal of Honor multiplayer from Taliban to Opposing Force.

While this change should not directly affect gamers, as it does not fundamentally alter the gameplay, we are making this change for the men and women serving in the military and for the families of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice - this franchise will never willfully disrespect, intentionally or otherwise, your memory and service.

Can they also rename the US side out of respect for the families of Afghan civilians who have been killed in the war?

those people aren't in their sales demographic. so they don't give a shit about them.
