War in Afghanistan & Moscow Rush

This press release unveils plans for War in Afghanistan, the next installment in Shrapnel Games' ATF series: "War in Afghanistan can almost be described as a survey-style wargame. Instead of focusing on one particular campaign or period War in Afghanistan will cover everything from British operations in country during the 19th century to the capture of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden (hypothetical at this point, but possibly real by the game's release). From the Soviet invasion, to the rise of the Taliban, to Operation Enduring Freedom, all important conflicts in the war torn region are touched upon." Also, today's daily game announcement (actually their seventh in under a month for those actually keeping score at home) from the folks at Buka is for a racing action game called Moscow Rush:

Have you ever been to Moscow? Even if you have been, but moved around in a taxi, you will certainly enjoy the experience of street racing around the real Moscow in the Moscow Rush game.

The main character is an ordinary urban chap. His whole life is focused on his car and on the stuff attached to it: his friends, always asking for a lift, street racing, dreams of a million dollars and so on.

The hero starts the game at the steering wheel of an old jalopy. There are many ways to earn for the car of your dreams. You can become a cool racer or get in touch with criminal gangs to become their leader. Itís your choice.

Hilarious missions, rush-hour street racing, total freedom of action!

Key Features:

    ∑ Huge realistic world Ė a photorealistic representation of Moscow city;
    ∑ Meet the realities of the driverís life in the city with its intensive traffic, road jams, auto markets, shops and service centers;
    ∑ The realistic physical model of the cars;
    ∑ The flexible plot gives you freedom, career opportunities and nearly infinite upgrade options for your steel horse;
    ∑ About 20 enthralling missions;
    ∑ Free-ride mode: you can just drive around the city watching the sights;
    ∑ LAN multiplayer available.

I like how you omit the reason why the CIA staged coups around the world. You know, that whole CCCP thing spreading its wings. You also, of course, omit the part about how the Taliban treated their people and how it was NATO that moved against them, not just America. You can tout your degree all you want like the arrogant mouthy pedant you obviously are, bleating Chomsky quotes here and there like the man is truth absolute. Maybe you should talk to some people in South America and see what they think of Chavez and Castro and see if they would like to be living in their little communist dictatorships. In a cold war generals run world strategy. The cold war is over, yet these communist utopias dont seem to be able to produce one good state as a shining example of their proletariat revolution.

It's funny I talked to a friend who lives in Venezuela, telling me about the riots and fighting against Chavez going on there because they know Chavez isn't going to let them vote. Chavez is the kind of people the United States has and wants to remove. For obvious reasons. But I forgot, America is the Great Satan, that's why people are fleeing on boats every day past armed guards to move to Cuba, the benevolent dictator. Oh wait! That doesn't really happen in reality. In reality people flee Cuba. Yeah, I'd say it's a pretty good thing that the rest of South America doesn't look like Cuba.

And as for "opium warlords". The only reason the opium production stopped in the first place was that the Taliban threatened to kill anyone who didn't. America is trying to ween them off it, because you see, there is very little for the poor farmer to live off. Not much else grows in Afghanistan. People are working on remedying the situation. Unless you want to trot your snotty ass over to Afghanistan and rake them down with an AK.
