Vietcong Gold?

Though there's no word of this on the official Vietcong Website, the Vietcong Czech Fansite (thanks BlueSteel) has unofficial word that the U.S. version of Illusion Softworks' Vietnam War game has gone gold. Word is they are still waiting on the UK, German, and Czech versions of the game to be completed, and that the U.K. and Czech versions will contain "rude language, with blood," the U.S. version offers blood, but no rude language, and that the German version will offer rude language, but no blood.

Yeah, and the fact that Bush has been planning regime change in Iraq since shortly after 9/11 doesn't arouse any suspicion? And there are those that report Bush and his cronies talking/planning for this before he even got into the White House! France is simply standing up for what they believe to be right: Iraq can be contained and inspections can go on until all WMD are found and destroyed. But, Bush is so obsessed with regime change in Iraq that he cannot wait for the peaceful resolution. This is the first time in history that the United States has abandoned diplomacy and will attack a country without being attacked first. The fact that Bush has tossed diplomacy aside because he cannot get what he wants, does not bode well for the future of global diplomacy. What are we going to say to China when it decides that Taiwan is a "imminent threat" to China's security? This is what bothers France and a great many other people around the globe. No one argues that Saddam is being misunderstood or that he is not a bad man. We all know this. He has been a bad man for many years. And though many administrations. Including Reagan's administration which be-friended Saddam while it was at war with Iran. As a matter of fact, we helped put Saddam Hussein in power over thirty years ago. France shares cupability due to the fact that it has economic ties to Iraq. But, that is something we in the USA should understand only too well. The rest of the world is tired of our hypocrisy.

What in the hell is up with the whole French bashing thing?

That's easy. As a member of the United Nations, France agreed to resolution 1441 which would allow the use of force against Iraq if it was found to be in material breach of that resolution. Iraq is in material breach and, in a post-9/11 world, the United States is simply tired of giving them "one more chance" to comply especially when there is every indication that they will never comply. However, the United States had proposed introducing a new resolution (although certainly not required to do so) in an effort to appease the concerns of some of our "allies" who fear we are rushing to war. France, chosing to be the most vocal opponent, responds by stating that they fully intend to veto any new resolution without even seeing the new resolution!?!? So are we feeling a little pissed off with the French? Absolutely. Should that surprise anyone? I don't see why it should given the circumstances.

What in the hell is up with the whole French bashing thing? And all that b*llshit about the "Freedom Fries"? Just because France doesn't support the imperialistic war on Iraq shouldn't mean that the US should forget the French. France was America's first ally.

Anyway, it sucks that they're removing the "rude language" from the game. Censorship sucks. I mean come on. A lot of people actually talk that way, especially in tense situations, i.e. war. Jesus, the game is] set in Vietnam.

Funny how the US is always slamming Germany over censorship. Now since Big Brother...er Ashcroft is AG, you can't even get games with swearing in them. It's probably not the end of that either.

I wonder how much people know about General Lafayette and US History...

You could easily cross out the General Lafayette and have the same answer - not much...

Most of the US history I've learned was gained via independent reading on my own.

I can't speak for people everywhere in the US but I think you'd find that many US citizens can't even place the US Civil War in the correct time frame, let alone name the presidents in order.

We don't know our own history let alone world history.

Sad indeed.

Well, since this turned into an anti-French thread...

During one of the many wars that the French and the British fought, the French just happened to capture a British officer. The officer was subsequently brought to a French general for interrogation. Noticing the British officer's red tunic, the French general asked, "Why do you wear that red uniform? It makes it easy for us to shoot you." The British officer replied, "If I do get wounded, the blood will not show, and my soldiers will not get scared." The French general replied, "That is a very good idea". The general turned to his orderly and said, "From now on all French officers will wear brown pants."

Lafayette was the first Frenchman to come to the aid of the American revolutionary cause. When he was only 19 years old, he left France for America. He left his very wealthy, upper-class family for two reasons: Lafayette wanted to help the Americans and he wanted to gain military fame and glory..plus he had a thing for blonde co-eds

I heard something the other day about an Iraqi rifle for sale on ebay. It is used, but it's only been dropped once.
