On Medal of Honor's Taliban Controversy

MCV has a story saying a "major news broadcaster" has spiked a story about the upcoming Medal of Honor game after learning that it was based on inaccurate information, as while players will be able to play as Taliban forces, there are no British forces in the game to shoot when playing from that side as one MP claimed. They proceed to point out other inaccurate reports about the military shooter sequel that are floating around, and also report the UK Department for Culture Media and Sport "has declined to endorse fresh calls to ban Medal Of Honor at retail." They also quote a prominent UK retailer saying they still intend to sell the game, though they would honor an official ban if one came down. Finally, Develop quotes EA Games president Frank Gibeau calling the game a "creative risk," and saying it would not be altered based on the outcry of politicians and media groups.

So let me get this straight. It's ok for British to kill the sub-human Taliban, but it's not ok for the Tailban to defend themselves and shoot back at the 'superior' British? It's not like the Taliban went to Britain and started this fight. I bet that the British would have had the same reaction if there were video games back during the revolutionary war.
What a bunch of circle jerking.

It's just good old fashioned jingoism straight from the victorian era. Dumbasses from The Sun and The Daily Mail use it to sell papers and Liam Fox is jumping on the bandwagon to suck up. They kill fathers and husbands while we kill terrorists is such a monumentally unsubtle bit of manipulation that nobody is going to fall for it.

David Cameron's trying to modernise the Tory party, a good flash of old school toff whipping up the scruffy proles like this must have made him :-facepalm-: .
