Bush targeted in jihadist FPS

Reports say Night of Bush Capturing aimed at "terrorist children" features six levels of President Bush hunting.

by

Games have come a long way from simple diversions and time wasters. The medical field is using them to simulate surgery and other medical procedures before moving students and doctors onto live patients. The Army uses games to teach greenhorn soldiers the ins and outs of proper tactics and also as a recruiting tool. Some games have even been sponsored by the United Nations as lessons on how to supply relief to needy countries.

On the other hand, some controversial games with extreme views have also become available. Among them are a homemade Columbine Massacre role-player, a John F. Kennedy assassination shooter starring Lee Harvey Oswald, and a massively multiplayer online game sponsored by the Chinese Communist Party that asks players to kill the Japanese.

The latest game to raise eyebrows is titled Night of Bush Capturing, according to SITE (Search for International Terrorist Entities). The game was allegedly created by The Global Islamic Media Front, which SITE describes as a "jihadist mouthpiece."

As its name implies, the goal of the game is to hunt down "a character representing" President George W. Bush. There are six levels, with names such as Jihad Beginning, American's Hell, and Bush Hunter Like a Rat, and traditional jihadist songs play in the background.

SITE says the PC game, which was aimed at "terrorist children," is a modded version of Quest for Saddam, which was released after the US invaded Iraq in 2003.

We as westerners need to learn that Islam is a religion of peace and love and if we can't learn that then we will just have to be killed off in mass by bombings and attacks on our civillian populations.

Pentagon was not hit by a plane? Good one! Oh wait a minute, you are going by the one security camera that was very close to the impact zone? And that camera showed this blurr of an object whizzing by that is barely able to make clear? But, did you look at the other video imaging...the one that clearly show a jet barely hitting the ground and then slamming into the the wall? We all see demons that we want to see. Some of us see the demons that someone else wants us to see. And sometimes the demons are the ones that are showing us the demons they want us to see.

Fourth post in a row...man I'm obsessed! Also I wasn't trying to put words in your mouth. I'm not just speaking to you, I've read a bunch of conservative remarks about liberals=terrorists. If you read it closely I said I'm defending liberals...it was a new paragraph. So it was just generally speaking on that and how stereotyping is dumb. Like I said before, a lot can get lost in translation. Things will get out of context on here. Okay I'm done...until someone retaliates

lol...da*n I missed a lot. Anywho since it is my lunch I can type on here now, so I won't have this problem. That post was much more respectable then your last. I appreciate your rational...it makes a debate so much more interesting. If you took what I said as smug well I'm sorry. A lot can be taken out of context on a message board and you can't hear the tone of ones voice...to show sarcasm and joking. I never thought I could change your opinion, but maybe I can change your presentation of it. Your last comment seemed much more thought out. If you don't think you were bashing then that's your delusions. I definitely was not trying to bash you...it was more reasoning than anything. Just like most of my comments. If you read my post clearly for the most part I'm say...I feel that, or in my opinion, etc etc. I don't just come out and say "YOU WRONG LOOK AT THE FACTS". Really there are no facts in the world anymore...everything gets twisted. I agree with you a lot, believe it or not (mostly with your latest post, you sound a little more honest and not just to yourself as in previous posts). People do like to buy into the conspiracy theories...even I do. Mostly because I find it interesting. It may not be fact but it can have truth. These people who do these things (not all but some) may actually do more research than you give credit. A lot of that stuff that I hear I know I wouldn't just come up with. Also...lol...everyone gets made fun of. It's not like I get made fun of all the time (well except my friends and I make fun of each other all the time). That's what buds do. I don't get made fun of for my political views...except my dad...lol. I'm glad I didn't get into politics when I lived with him! So don't apologize for that...lol. From what I saw, you seemed a lot less reasonable than your last post. You sounded like you lacked rational. Just remember...it's good we all speak our minds. Whether it be some conspiracy theory or praising the Bush administration. No one should be silenced...it would be a cold and boring world if we did. Again it's not what you said...I got your opinion and it's good. To me the presentation sounded as if it was coming from a (for a lack of a better word) d*ckhole! lol...not saying you are...just seemed that way and I know that word is not sophisticated. It does get to the extreme when people just start pointing fingers and blaming Bush for their problems. I can admit, it can be annoying. My father and his side of the family are all Republican...I get my liberal from my mom. To me liberals can blame Bush...but my family (dads side) blames blacks, jews, etc. pretty ignorant stuff. I guess that's why I'm liberal, I chose not to be a part of that. I know not all conservatives are like that. In a political race I choose based on character more than politics. If I think the Democrat is a better man I will vote and vice versa. lol...I did add the hippie pot smoking douche. Personally I don't care for hippies and I hate it when conservatives regard all liberals as hippies. I really dislike any extremist on either the right or left. Politics are very complex, technically everyones opinion can be contradicting to itself. I feel this country is sick and it's up to us to work together to make things better for us and the world. We need to be tolerant, reasonable, understandable, patient, and calm, but do it with strength, to be assertive, with pride, and knowledge. I think we have two parties when combined carry all those attributes. It can never be one sided, so lets learn to work together...it's normal to have arguments and disagreements lets not let it get the best of us!

Lol I think I hit a nerve! Pit_Viper You know politics are funny and sad. You know and I know we wont change each others politics, but I will give my two cents on your even more bashing. I do have a problem with conservatives but Im not smug. All I said was I think you are starting fights with a bunch of kids just beginning their political opinions. Yes some of them may be naïve and some ignorance, but don’t bash them. I only called you ignorant well because you are. Its not about your knowledge Im sure youre smart. You are being stupid on how you are presenting your argument. You being the intelligent person you sound to be just with some delusions you should help lead these kids by example and not condemn them. You have a lot of experiences that they do not and you are the one putting yourself on a pedestal my friend. Thats whats wrong with you conservatives is you bash and blame the naïve instead of helping them understand. Its irony in a way you bash these liberals to thinking your way but in the end you will push us even more to the left. I just see you lack any rational thought. Your whole page was just accusing and attacking. You do no good in anyway by bashing. You make yourself look worse by the minute. Its not what you know it’s how you show what you know. You contradict yourself so much its not even funny. You call me smug do you know what that means? How was I being smug you only use that remark because Im liberal. I’m not self righteous at all lol, I have a lot of issues; I can admit I could do more. I admit when Im wrong…can you? Whos the one on here preaching hes been all over the world, seen it all, helped the world, and then use these experiences to bash a bunch of kids on a videogame website saying they know nothing and do nothing to help the world…lol! You are smug my friend. I just called conservatives ignorant and lemmings. You dont think outside the box. You take what the Bush administration says and you believe it. This is true to most conservatives but not all. There are good Republicans dont get me wrong I know a lot. Also I defend liberals by saying were not terrorists. That is the biggest joke ever, comparing liberals to terrorists. Let’s see now…liberals, liberals, how do they create terror in the world today? I don’t know how? Ummm…they tell the government it’s doing wrong, they read books, they smoke pot, they sit around and write music, they make movies. I tell you those da*n liberals are scary! This is the stereotype of the conservatives of the liberal. I never said you were racist! I was stating that it is stupid to stereotype people like you do about liberals. Calling us smug, ignorant, self righteous, don’t know anything bunch of pot smoking hippies. Do you know the true definition of ignorant? It’s when you have an opinion on something you know nothing about. You don’t know these kids on here and yet you act as if you do and in turn youre ignorant. I retaliated by giving the stereotype of a conservative and you know what you proved my example correct. You got offended by being called a racist, redneck etc, etc. So maybe you can learn your lesson and not think that every liberal is a hippie pot smoking douche. I agree with you on a lot I think this country does some great things. It also does very poor things. This country (and us) are fortunate but at what cost. The government profits from the misery of the world and then tells the people: See you all have it great here. Look how crappy the rest of the world is. Now not all of this is America and we do help countries but in the end were looking for profit. Its the way capitalism works. I just think this country is so good and the people are so generous we can find better solutions to the worlds problems. I’m sure you are a good person, so what are we fighting about. We just have different views. My whole argument is not to bash people who dont know everything. I don’t know everything and this squabbling and bickering will get us know where. I think its good the liberals speak up to view their differences and you should too. That’s what makes this country great, if you take that away then this country will lose its true meaning. You’re telling the liberals to be quiet but in turn you would have to be silenced also. I expect you to speak up and base your opinion its good. I just think you’re doing it the wrong way. You should be happy these kids are speaking their minds and opinions. Its better for this country then you give credit. If you want to debate go to your town or city hall. I’m sure you’ll get a much better debate there and not on a videogame site with the majority not even able to vote yet.

lol...I guess I can't copy and paste from Word. I'm at work so I can't be typing on this site for an hour...but I can get away with it if I'm on Word. I'm going to repost this without the apostraphy's etc. So my grammar is going to suck!

1.) Your post has got some funky formatting in it. 2.) Some of my best friends are liberal. Even a couple of them could be considered "very" liberal. I don't make generalizations, and note that not once did I make the generalization that liberals=pot-smoking hippies. You supplied that yourself...I'm sorry if people make fun of you, but I never said that, and I really don't appreciate false accusations. 3.) No nerves were hit. I actually had a massage right before I wrote that post...man, they sure know how to work those muscles, and good conversation too when I can manage to get something across coherently :-) Completely relaxed when I wrote that. 4.) As amusing as "I'm no XXX, you are!!!!" arguments are, I got past them when I was six or seven. I suppose everyone matures at different rates. 5.) I never pointlessly bash, I ask them to examine the truth. When people are so blind or self-deluded that they refuse to go and examine their sources of information (prisonplanet.com being a prime example) what am I to do. I sure as hell won't coddle anyone, and I will most certainly not encourage it. If you're old enough to make a semi-coherent post on these boards, you are old enough to take some criticism. 6.) Your previous post most assuredly was filled with both smugness and a deluded sense of self-righteousness. I stand by what I wrote. 7.) Of course I can admit when I'm wrong...'tis what happens when you learn, when you debate, and when you realize that someone was right. I've yet to come across anything you have said that has made me think I was wrong in my reasoning. 8.) Let me repeat something again. I'm not a Bush fan. I never voted for him. I'm not a fan of the neo-con agenda (and no, that's not some global domination plan). However, my disagreement with their policies has not left me so blind as to go "ZOMG, BUSH = TEH SUX, HE'S THE TERRORIST, BIN LADEN IS MISUNDERSTOOD!!!!" that I see the "far" (note the "far" please) left doing all the time. I also know that while they may not have the same exact vision for this country that I would have, I also know that they are doing what they think is best for this country. The best part...in two years time, I'll be able to vote again (and hope McCain runs). 9.) Nope, liberals != terrorists. Haven't made that claim either. Thanks for (again) trying to put words in my mouth. What liberals are guilty of, however, is maintaining such a level of ignorance that they actually think throwing money over to the ME will solve our problems, that this is all a problem of economic disparity. Some of the more far left members even go so far as to sympathize with them, which is downright disgusting (and of course there are the crazies who actively want our country to be toppled, which really is treason, but is protected under our 1st Amendment--another thing Islamic radicals would love to see destroyed, but hey, they're not the enemy or anything...). But actual terrorists...no. 10.) Ignorant. I know quite a bit about the subjects I've touched on, through actual research, not by digging through such lovely bastions of objectivity like prisonplanet.com. The problem is that most people don't bother doing the research, and instead see the status quo...see something that opposes it, and immediately accept said oppostion without actually examining the "facts" they throw about. I have nothing against any of you personally, I mean, Auto could be a great guy (or girl...or both, whatever, can't always tell on forums) for all I know, just misguided. However, when you put your opinions on a place where anyone can view them and respond to them, accept some personal responsibility and know that people will disagree. I know that people will disagree with my viewpoint, just as I know (many) more agree. I appreciate your posts King, as they show a remarkable level of sophistication for these boards (which are obviously not my own...I love games, which is why I'm here, I generally keep my political commentary to political boards), and I *do* respect your opinion, even if I disagree with parts (or even think certain parts are downright wrong). --Apologies for any typos...it's late here, and I didn't get much sleep because of classes. --And apparently I somehow removed my post...no clue what's going on...

No...actually I'm barely considered middle class. I work 10+ hours a day, 7 days a week when I'm home to make enough money to make semester payments. I get financial and merit based college and Gov't grants. I apply for extra grants to allow me to travel to other countries through my university. I do it because I actually make a goddamned effort to know the people there...something that is painfully obvious you lack. Auto...it's time to wake up. Wake up to the real world buddy. There are no black helicopters whisking people away--no matter how much you may think there are. There is no "evil" Republican conspiracy to take over the world...despite what that collection of absolute garbage and misconstrued "facts" (they cease to be facts when taken out of context) at prisonplanet (that you love to site) says. I find it sad that you need to delude yourself with a false, conspiracy-ridden universe to make up for your own shortcomings. But I still have hope that one day you'll wake up from your delusions; for there ARE **REAL** threats out there, people who want to kill you, me, and everything that this country stands for. They are not within our government, or part of some shadow network--they're in the streets burning American and Israeli flags, crying out for another Holocaust, for a great "cleansing" of the world. It's sad, pathetic, ignorant, and downright dangerous that you instead insist that these people are not our enemies, but rather that the people who are trying their best to protect not only us, but the world, are in fact the real "terrorists". Again, I hope you wake up and outgrow this phase, but if not, it won't matter. You and your conspiracy theories are completely irrelevant--you continue playing at your pretend resistance and your dreams of self-aggrandized glory--I and many other Americans will continue to work to make this country a safe place: a safe place where you're allowed to do so.

You know, i had this 3 page response and I was about to post it and I then I realized you were too IGNORANT to accept the REAL WORLD. Traveling around in it(which i have been so lucky to do) doesnt mean you or I understand it. But at least I go to sleep @ night knowing I care about the people of this country and not just the rich and middle class. You arent poor if you have been traveling and are even lucky enough to read/post this...the end

Pit_Viper
Pit_Viper

Pit_Viper Don't put words in people's mouths. How do you know no one on here has helped their fellow countryman? That's exactly what's wrong with the conservatives...IGNORANCE. You all can continue to be a lemming and listen to your fox news because everything is just handy dandy. Nope nothing wrong with the world. The U.S government is perfect in everyway...it's actually a Utopia! It feels good to have words put in your mouth doesn't it? I feel sorry for your friends in Iraq, I know friends as well. They and the civilians in Iraq are innocent and I support them. I don't support the cause, but I do hope they make it home safely. We all know thousands of Americans and Iraqis have died for the wealth of our top conservatives...oh wait we're there to stop terrorist's I'm sorry. In the end we're just making more of them! Get it through your thick heads...you're the minority! To all the conservatives I'm a liberal and I think if you bring politics into a game and say it's wrong to have this game...well then we need to get rid of all violent games that show killing in any sense. Stop comparing liberals to terrorists! Terrorists kill innocent lives...most liberals sit around and smoke pot (which I don't). I do not care for hippies, I'm not far out in the left but I do not like the right. I would not stereo type the liberals all as hippies that support terrorism...because we can do the same. Conservative-Racist, ignorant, hating all that is different, tax the poor, give tax cuts to the rich, controlling, homophobe, redneck, war hungry (where the real terrorist thrive. If you all hate terrorist so much, why do you support war efforts that are just going to make generations more. Keep listening to your Fox News; if you actually talked to some intelligent liberals you would see a big difference between them and what Fox tells you. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Ignorant? No, your post clearly shows that the ignorance here lies as much with you (if not more so) than the people you attack. Arrogance? Your own post reeks of smug self-assured superiority (something I assure you lies only in the realm of your incredibly warped intellect). Hating everyone? That's funny, last I checked I don't hate everyone, or anyone who is different. My repetoire of close friends ranges from several countries, from every economic sphere (except most notably the very top crust of society). My friends are white, black, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist. My future fiancee is Chinese, her parents having immigrated from China with absolutely nothing and now own their own business. I swear to god, the absolute IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, and down-right SMUGNESS you smear throughout your post is absolutely sickening. Leave your godd*mned gated liberal community and actually travel around and talk to and help those who you preach about. You have *NO* clue what the hell you're talking about, and quite frankly, I and a *LOT* of other Americans are sick of listening to your self-righteous tirades of empty and meaningless words. You say conservatives are a minority. You're right, they are, and I'm glad they are as well. Liberals are also a minority, of just about the same proportion. The vast majority of Americans are moderates like me. We're proud of our country, but we don't spend our lives on a leash blindly spouting meaningless words. Tax the poor, give to the rich? Are you honestly that blind? You do understand that the American tax system operates on a Progressive Tax curve, with a cap at around 30-40%? I guess not. This system babies the poor and punishes those who have made it. You want fair, help change this country to a flat-tax system. That is a fair system...the poor pay less, the rich pay more, based on the mathematics of percentages. Even better, replace the system with a consumption tax (read more at http://www.fairtax.org/). Where do I ever say that the American government is perfect? Hmmm...yep, no where. However, the American government is certainly one of the best out there. The fact that you disagree makes no difference to me. I've gone from quasi-socialist/free market states (France) to one of the last remaining Communist regimes (or rather a country transitioning to a free market economy while simultaneously managing to retain an extremely repressive government) on Earth. I've seen these different regimes, these different ways of living, and most people have absolutely no clue how lucky we are--yes, even the poor. In a way I'm almost glad most people have no clue, because I'd be disturbed by the number of suicides by people like Auto who wake up and realize that they've been living in a fantasy world of make-believe. Oh...and I don't watch FOX News. But hey, thanks for further proving that you have far more problems with stereotypes and ignorance than those you attack. ___________________________________________________________ Auto: It's sad when one makes up for their defficiencies by subscribing to conspiracy theory websites that play amateur historian/political scientist/physicist. I honestly hope that you'll get over your hypocritical non-conformist stage (hypocritical because you are a complete dogmatic of the cult of conspiracy, as evidenced in each and every one of your posts). As for your SOB story about your mother...sorry to hear it. Couple things need to be addressed. I don't live in the suburbs. I go to school in the single poorest county in New York. I work with these people on a daily basis. I've been to a variety of other countries, most notably China (which is where I'm posting from right now). It's amazing the absolute ignorance most Americans live in...not to these so-called "conspiracies" you keep prattling on about, but about how lucky Americans are, even the poor. You say your mother lost her job/pension benefits...those don't even exist here. Your mother can get another job, thanks to the remarkably low unemployment rate in the U.S. Here people fight over the lowest paying jobs, and make it off of rates that most Americans couldn't comprehend. No, this complaining is a product of ultra-liberal disconnect with the actual american public--a very sad occurance to be sure.

I can't belive it , i never heard of something like this before in my entire life, there should be someone hacking this game and put a good virus in it , so when these people install those games in their pcs , they get spam or something, that would be nice !!!, Seriously now, this is not good this will create future terrorist, have you ever seen a 5 year old kid playing a videogame???, their like zombies, all focused on their game, Now imagine a kid in irak or afghanistan playing this game focused on the images of terrorism and destruction, terrible , this is just insane, now its not just the us, they have a war against anyone that criticize them, imagine those kids in 20 years , that's a Scary thought !!!

To VegetaMaelstrom: I think you may have misunderstood what I said in that post. I never said anything about our media being angelic, and I agree with most of what you say. That post was in response to another user and I think what I wrote could be misunderstood w/o the proper context. All I was trying to say in that post is that the media is not trying to make every muslum look like a terrorist. I wasnt saying that the media is a perfect unbiased way to get information, because it's not.

Autolycus, ARE YOU ON CRACK? let me guess, you listen to Art Bell every day, and wear aluminium foil around your head at night to protect yourself from "RAYS"? Let me guess, you believe in UFO's too? Hmm, most of the remaining WTC debris is located a large airport (La Guardia), but if you want to believe it is on the way to china in a container, that's ok with me. It is so easy to blame the US Gov't for all the worlds problems..........

i understand what you are saying and just like you said, you are entitled to believe what you want. But I ask you to show me how the buildings fell. i ask you to show me a plane that hit the pentagon. I have already discredit the popular mechanics piece and leave these people to decide what they want. I would rather try to find out if my government has failed me and be wrong, then not try at all. Because what if....what if we(conspriracy theorists) are right! isnt that worth at least looking into it instead of trying to debunked the science behind it. And for record. multiple physisists, scientists, groups, etc have all tried to get some of the matierial from the WTC, but guess what our government has shipped it all to containers under lockup in china... Why? NOBODY can get to that stuff that has any public access anyways...what do they have to hide? to many variables are just plain wrong in the official story for me to believe. So if real people show me the proof, then maybe...just maybe i'll back up a little bit...but i highly doubt that will ever happen

I would like to point out that it actually was conservatives that made this game and not liberals. The terrorists actually are conservative. Osama is very conservative when it comes to Islam. He is fanatical, he hates anyone who isn't Islamic, he is a fundamentalist. His supporters, are also conservative too. They have the same views as him and also have fascist views. Fascism is considered to be conservative and the terrorists happen to have fascist views. So stop saying the liberals support these guys, cause they hate them alot too. I'm a liberal, and I really, really hate the terrorists alot. This game itself, is not a good idea for a game at all.

Just like I suspected, Autolycus doesn't care about facts, science, or reason. Nor is he an engineer or an engineering student. All he knows about thermodynamics, material science, and structural engineering come from conspiracy theory websites. Meanwhile, I am currently a junior in the school of engineering at Utah State University. I've studied thermodynamics, heat transfer, material science, mechanics of materials, etc. I can tell you that the information presented in the Popular Mechanics article is accurate. If, however, you don't want to believe it, that is your choice. You will also probably not believe similar articles from Scientific American, The Skeptics Dictionary, the German magazine Der Spiegel, nor MIT engineering professor Thomas W. Eagar. From wikipedia we get the following quote: Thomas W. Eagar, has suggested [9/11 conspiracy theorists] "use the 'reverse scientific method'. They determine what happened, throw out all the data that doesn't fit their conclusion, and then hail their findings as the only possible conclusion." It is your choice to push forward with your suggestions that their is a conspiracy behind the events of 9/11, but I will not be continueing in this dialogue. I've given my two cents already. /sarcasm Note: if you want to discredit me, remember that USU is a public university, so obviously I am in on the conspiracy, as are my professors and the textbooks they use in their classes. /sarcasm

common law of thermodynamics says completely opposite. if you have a 500 degree flame and introduce an 800 degree flame, the final flame is 800 degrees, not 1300. The things burning in that buildling where not burning hotter then the jet fuel and the were NOT an accelerant either. Also if you watch the footage you'll see thick black clouds. The reason they are dark/black is because they are deprived of oxygen, which in turns makes the burning point even lower. The pancake theory is bs because the buildling fell in 10.4 seconds and free fall(dropping an apple from the top floor) would have in 9.8 seconds. Pancake theory would have the destructuion level by level, slowing down the collapsing time. Also, because of the height of the building, it would NOT have fallen straight down perfectly onto itself. Also if you check you can see explosions going off about 30 seconds before, on all the major structure supports. and no, the building was designed not to "shatter" the beam(if you are thinking its some sort of beam explosion). Also its the only building(skyscrapper structure) to fall from burning in the history of the world. An operhouse did some while back, but again its not a skyscrapper. also no plain hit WTC 7, so please tlel me why that fell and nothing else did. BTW, there were over 100 impending Security Exchange Comission cases in that building. Actually every single SEC file was in that building...how convient it fell for no reason...oh im sorry I mean "loss of structure integrity due to the falling of the other two" (chuckle). Food for thought....you might not like it, but we had a large part in it.... LOOSE CHANGE video.google.com watch it

Not going to get into the name calling thing here as it doesn't serve any purpose. Just want to point out that my eariler comment was that it is VOTES and NOT BULLETS that we use to remove politicans from office that we do not like. If that offends someone then I am not going to apologise. That IS our system of government which has worked very nicely for 200 plus years. It is a system which many people have given their lives just so their families can benefit from it. As far as those that say we are in Iraq not to fight terrorism I must say that you really think that Al Queda is not in Iraq. Or, that Saddam was not capable of making or using chemical weapons. On that last point, Saddam used such weapons on his own people on more then one occasion and on the Iranians at least once. Saddam was a Facist-style dicator that killed his own and anyone else just to make sure he remained in power. He routinely sent money to terrorists. He was dangerous---did you forget that it was he that launched wars with first Iran and then Kuwait? What G.W. did was to finish what was unfinished in the early 90's and to create a focal point for the war on terror. It seems that that strategic move is working. One last point, noticed some mentioned that the WTC during 9/11 was not the result of terrorist's planes striking the 2 WTC building. It has been suggested that our own government bombed said buildings instead. This is so wrong on so many levels. One "argument" that was used to "prove" this is that jet fuel does not burn hot enough to melt steel. Well, jet fuel may not but what jet fuel does do is act as an accelerent that greatly enhances any heat output by any flameable materials. So, you have a bunch of highly flamable material laying around on the floors to which these jets spew 1000's of gallons of highly flamable jet fuel. It is ignited and starts burning. There is also another phenomenom that takes effect in any uncontrolled building fire. That phenom is that as smoke builds inside the closed structure, those floors above the fire, that the same smoke heats to a tremendous amount....several 1000 degrees. This in turn causes far more combustion and heat and left uncheck becomes like any smelter that you would find inside any steel factory. One other thing that happened in the crashing of the planes was that large portions of the steel floor beams had the fire retardant insulation blown off. Now, we have the recipe for the steel beams to at least become soft due to high heat.. Beams that are soft bend. As the tremendous weight above push down the bend increases until they finally fail. In the case of the WTC tower the entire upper floors "pancaked" down toward the areas that had windows blown out by the plane crashes. Air from this pancaking compressed out through these blown out windows along with the massive flames from the inferno inside. This blowing out of flame under these floors was what made it appear there was an explosion and nothing more. To quote people that are selling books or using it as propoganda to stir up "anti-Bush" or "anti-government" thinking will not hold when logic is applied. What it really only serves is to show that you have a bunch of crack-pots out there that want to believe whatever some people will feed them. Same thing applies with this so-called Jihid game.

I decide who deserves my respect and President Bush is not one of those people. He's wasting american lives and money and he is easily one of the most ignorant people I have ever seen. Not just ignorant though, completely idiotic. I'm not a terrorist but I most definitely do not agree with a lot of things about this country. As far as this game goes, if it's any good than so be it. Personally I think it'd be hilarious to have a good game that has you tracking down GWB. If it was good enough i might even pay for it!

RaymondIV I'm a liberal and in no way does your rambling justify a reason we can't complain. The great thing about this country (and liberals do love their country otherwise they wouldn't complain or worry) is we have the right to speak up. If we couldn't be skeptical and have to be a lemming then this country would be a dictatorship....which is what conservatives seem to want. The American people can and will complain about what their government is doing. When Clinton was in office, that's all conservatives did, was complain and try and destroy a man trying to run the country. There's nothing wrong with debating about your government...it doesn't mean you're unpatriotic, and it doesn't mean we don't care. I'm no hypocrite either, I dislike what the government is doing...but that doesn't mean I have to move out of the country or give up the fruits this country provides. We all know corporations control this country; the government just passes bills, handles taxes, and decides who to blow up! You talk about poor people? You're conservative...your politics say F them. Keep the poor poor, the average average and the rich rich. Plus all that is besides the point of the article. It's about a game and it's their freedom to make that game. This country is suppose to teach tolerance and if this stuff makes you angry, then they have won. In the end you contradict yourself by telling people not to complain...but that's exactly what you're doing. Pit_Viper Don't put words in people's mouths. How do you know no one on here has helped their fellow countryman? That's exactly what's wrong with the conservatives...IGNORANCE. You all can continue to be a lemming and listen to your fox news because everything is just handy dandy. Nope nothing wrong with the world. The U.S government is perfect in everyway...it's actually a Utopia! It feels good to have words put in your mouth doesn't it? I feel sorry for your friends in Iraq, I know friends as well. They and the civilians in Iraq are innocent and I support them. I don't support the cause, but I do hope they make it home safely. We all know thousands of Americans and Iraqis have died for the wealth of our top conservatives...oh wait we're there to stop terrorist's I'm sorry. In the end we're just making more of them! Get it through your thick heads...you're the minority! To all the conservatives I'm a liberal and I think if you bring politics into a game and say it's wrong to have this game...well then we need to get rid of all violent games that show killing in any sense. Stop comparing liberals to terrorists! Terrorists kill innocent lives...most liberals sit around and smoke pot (which I don't). I do not care for hippies, I'm not far out in the left but I do not like the right. I would not stereo type the liberals all as hippies that support terrorism...because we can do the same. Conservative-Racist, ignorant, hating all that is different, tax the poor, give tax cuts to the rich, controlling, homophobe, redneck, war hungry (where the real terrorist thrive. If you all hate terrorist so much, why do you support war efforts that are just going to make generations more. Keep listening to your Fox News; if you actually talked to some intelligent liberals you would see a big difference between them and what Fox tells you.

You are proud of your country now?! Don't get me wrong, it is great to be proud from your homeland. But america has NO RIGHT WHAT SO EVER to tell other countries how to run. We were led into a false war that has nothing to do with terrorism. Explain to me how sadahm hussien or iraq has ANYTHING to do with 9/11. Instead our soliders, which i value dearly, believe they are fighting for peace. And for that I will always give them the respect they deserve. But just because these soliders think they are over there fighting for peace, does it mean they really are? They are told what to do, and they follow orders. They might think why but they are trained not to question. You may think I don't believe in our country, but I do. I believe in the constitution and the willingness of the AMERICAN people. Now we have to sacrfice our liberty for security?! NO thanks. What security? Explain to me how dumping possible chemical liquids into a vat of other possible chemical liquids in the middle of an airport where people are standing, is safe. All it takes is one bad person from any race, any religion, any country(even the u.s.) to pour one bad chemical in there and now instead of 1 plane of passengers being hurt, we have a whole airport being hurt. Explain to me how my mother, who was a flight attendant for 27 years and retired early lost her pension/retirement while United Airlines has reaped bundles and bundles of cash from claiming bankruptcy. This is the country you love so dearly? Explain to me how families are being torn apart by parents that CANT find work. By committing crimes to scrape by. You might live in the suburbs but life isnt like that. Crime is getting higher and higher year after year in THIS country. Our police are becoming more racists/prejudice to age, skin color, clothes, etc. and not to mention the constant problems with the officers having "GOD SYNDROME" or whatever you prefer to call it. Our taxes keep going up and hardly any changes are being made. No, instead you have to give up this right to do blah blah blah for national security. Now in 2008, we all are getting NATIONAL ID Cards which will be color coded based on someones credit report (red, yellow, green). This, along with our drivers license and passwords will have(the new passports already do, despite MASSIVE NATIONAL SECURITY issues) RFID chips which can track you from anywhere on the planet. And you ahve ECHELON which listens to every phone call,email, bank xfer, etc every american makes.(thanks again bill clinton). now tell me...why does the government need that. I could've sworn I have the protection of my personal privacy. Why do they need to track all my purchases, communications, etc? Oh but all this is okay...it doesnt effect you...right? You can go out and just get another job. Oh wait...you have that college degree and any starting position needs 4 years of experience. Well crap, how are you supposed to pay that student loan off? its okay, you'll start low and work your way up in the corporate world, right? What do you mean that position went to the daugher of the president of the company? that doesnt seem very fair... "If i dont like it i can leave" wow...thats great... okay let me try to find a different job...oh wait i cant because they've all been shipped overseas(thanks bill clinton. Oh crap I dropped a piece of furniture on my foot. no job, no health insurance, but i need to get fixed. 250k of bills...awesome!(i know cause it happened to me IRL). Wow this country is awesome. Obviously. I could go on forever, but the point being is there are WAY to many problems at home that need to be fixed before we can go crusading around like the United States is gods gift to christians and spreading "democracy". Our democracy is failing us. The government should be afraid of their people. Not the people being afraid of their government. Regardless if you choose to accept that most people are scared of the IRS, FBI, ETC,Capitalism has had its peak and now greed is taking over. People don't do many hings to help anymore(I work for a non profit that works to HARD to help disabled, elderly, etc... so by all means I am generalizing this country) This country has HUGE problems and you refuse to accept them. Just because King G.w.B tells us he is doing what he feels is right, doesnt mean it is what is best for the people of this country. Yes, we tried to help iraq establish democracy. We had no right to and we still dont...so get us out of there. The longer we stay, the more we risk a terrorist attach. Who do you think supplies the most weapons to 3rd world countries that we are @ war with...The united states. behind them...England/Europe...why do we go to war? TO MAKE MONEY because people think that money is power.... I understand you arent going to budge and you think your beliefs are right, just as I do mine. But I have seen enough EVIDENCE(not just internet blogs and conspiracy propagahnda, because honestly a lot of that stuff is redicolous) But if you actually go to a library and try to find some information on Knights Templars, secret societies, bohemehan grove, new world order(remember the speach daddy bush gave?) etc and what the overall goal is of "the powers that be" you'll be amazed. Just about every large world event can be tracked back to the "power time line" or whatever the heck you want to call it.... I am willing to accept your reply because hopefully i'll wake one person up. its the 36% of the bush lovers that scare me. They will do anything he says guns blazing...which isnt american at all...

I work for my country. I help those in my country who are disadvantaged, those who are destitute and downtrodden. I help save lives in this country through some of the work I do. My friends fight for this country, and I would too if I did not think pursuing a free degree would be a greater contribution to this country. You? No, you do not fight for this country. You fight for a set of warped preconceptions spoon-fed to you by an alternate set of media with an incredibly clear purpose and bias that makes Fox News look like the most objective thing this world has seen since creation. No, you post about how much is wrong with America while simultaneously spouting how much you love America...you do *not* love America, you love your own words and preconceptions about how you feel America should be. I just thank my lucky stars that you're a part of an incredibly small fringe minority who stand no chance to actually hurt this country. As for me complaining about America? No, I stick up and support my country. I do not stand and blindly obey, yet I also do not spout out hypocritical lines of hatred towards her. I'm not the one who is complaining; no, that is you...you complain about a "status quo" that you fail to comprehend. You write words about how bad things are instead of going out and backing those words with DEEDS--deeds that actually help people instead of the oft-cited "I went to a protest!!!" which is nothing more than changing the venue of where you spout your meaningless garbage. I'm more proud to be an American now than I ever was before. At least we as a nation are not afraid to defend the ideals behind our country (freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of government, et. al.). At least we do not sleep while extremist terrorism threatens the world. At least we fight to save the world, even if some would rather hypocritically preach against us while simultaneously dealing wth evil for profit. There are two kinds of evil in this world: those who commit acts of evil, and those who would stand by and do nothing to prevent acts of evil from occurring.

If you dont want to accept what Alex Jones (www.prisonplanet.com) has to say, that is your choice. That is the great thing this country still has, but for how much longer? Regardless if you like alex jones or not, this science he RESEARCHES(and gives props where they are due, since he is only publicly documenting the already PROVEN research) still holds up. I understand where you are coming from and I came from the same spot. it came down to me having to find evidence for not believing his views, and honestly...thats not an easy thing to do. You'll find different "facts" quotes in different articles that state the exact opposite thing. But when I looked into what he had to say, there were too many things that made sense. It comes down to a matter of either 1) sitting around doing nothing and believing that everyone is being honest or 2) understand that humans in general are greedy and they always want more power. Then you start to see that the media goes OUT OF THEIR WAY to cover anything but the truth and you go barrelling down the rabbit hole and find out wonderland is actually bunch of lies and deciept. American Symposism, 911 for truth, etc have all shown me enough evidence. LOOSE CHANGE(http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7866929448192753501&q=loose+change+2nd) has brought up enough valid points and questions to make me not believe the "story" that the TV feeds us. Don't want to believe the video? how about a book that will PROVE TO YOU why and for what reason (http://www.amazon.com/Terror-Conspiracy-Deception-Loss-Liberty/dp/1932857435/sr=8-1/qid=1158847189/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-3866668-9046559?ie=UTF8&s=books) called TERROR conspiracy, by author Jim Marrs. Might I suggest looking into "Rule by Secrecy" as well. There are too many things that link up and there is a greater cause...power. And when I die or the wolrd blows or whatever, I would rather know I fought for the freedom of this country, then sitting aroudn doing nothing and believing what fox news has to tell me. I want you to argue, its your right. Please complain, do whatever you can to prove that america is still america because I jsut got done watching over 50 officers in new york tear gas a peaceful demonstration. Then even shot a charge of tear gas @ 4 year old boy and a few infants. Sounds like police state to me and dont bother giving me that "it could've been a fake video" line. Stop making excuses for your country and start fighting for the people. You dont have to cause harm to fight...you have to speak up for what you believe in, regardless if its your view or my view.... and for the popular mechanics article guess who its owned by(http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/august2006/100806popularmechanics.htm) dont forget all these news organizations are OWNED BY REPULICANS that would LOVE TO SAVE THOUSANDS of dollars @ the LOW Persons expense.

Autolycus: Conspiracy theories != Fact. Saying conspiracy theories = Facts doesn't change the above statement. It just makes you look daft. Our government, terrorists? Get off your pipe and face reality kid...either that, or stop listening to Emo. I mean, come on now. You want to see terrorism, pack your bags, head to Iraq, and sit in with some of my friends as they patrol the streets of Baghdad looking for the most recent hostage journalist...then wake up the next morning to find out that she was beheaded. Or better yet, join in on an Islamic extremist "DEATH TO AMERICA" (conveniently prepared ahead of any news events that they can misconstrue in their favor) chants. Go on, get up on the podium and declare how much you believe in "FREEDOM" (especially the "freedom of religion" part). Your dead body would be a far more telling explanation of who the true terrorists are than any of this garbage you spew. _____ Raymond...couldn't have said it better myself. Volunteering at the local church food shelf program in the North Country (I'm not religious by the way, I do it because it's the premier humanitarian organization in the area) has brought me into direct contact with some real destitute people. No what the amazing thing is? How much they love this country. They work so much harder for so much less than these pathetic emo children posting about concepts they don't even understand, and yet they are the ones who truly appreciate this country. I've never *once* heard one of them say how it's Bush's terrorist Zionist regime that's screwed them over...rather, they repeatedly say how glad they are to have a job, how glad they are to actually work, and how glad they are part of the USA. The teenage, sheltered, disconnected youth and the ultra-liberal ex-hippie bloc are so disconnected from the American public that it's downright disturbing. Even more disturbing is that this "teenage rebellion" phase has taken a turn from "hey, lets go sneak out and smoke a joint" to "hey, pass me another joint that I bought with my dad's allowance money while I wax poetic about crap I don't know". I'm keep alternating between absolute disgust, dispay, and incredulity at some of the crap people post here.

"SITE says the PC game, which was aimed at "terrorist children," is a modded version of Quest for Saddam, which was released after the US invaded Iraq in 2003" They've just modded a game that must have seemed quite offensive to them to one which is now quite offensive to Americans

For me Socialism is Tyranny and will never come into vogue in America "hopefully." I doubt many of you haters really know much about Capitalism let alone Socialism but I am going to give you a NEW word today for your vocabulary that you've never heard before. The new word is: Distributism. Sound it out now my little lovable liberals. Distribute-ism. If you feel the way things in America are set up now is so bad... which I'm not convinced myself... why don't you sell all you have (computer, video game console,etc.) and go give it to those poor people your talking about needing free stuff? (A sort of "Voluntary Taxation" of your Personal wealth) I have worked with the Hispanic ministry in my Church and community... there ARE poor folks around if you look for them. Of course, they're working right now thanks to the Capitalist system of the USA; making money to support their families. They immigrate here by the millions from Socialist countries to do just that. What are you doing? Complaining? Accomplished anything yet on this board? I know I haven't. Before I leave you: Nobody in America wants to hear some teenager wax poetic about a topic he knows nothing about from real experience. It's irritating to hear whiny boys talk about a matter like the Economy as if they barely have a grasp of the subject. In France they have 35 hour legislated work weaks and 10% unemployment. Males between 16 and 30 are hit the hardest. Universal healthcare coverage is not a right but a privilege. Roman Catholic Mercy hospitals are FREE for anyone who can't pay anyway. Free college? Heaven forbid you get a job and go to one of the thousands of colleges across America that have reasonable tutition costs like your parents did... that is if they did. But who cares, right? Under a socialist government does your personal talent count for anything? It's not like you can rise above others in the (now defunct) corporate world because of your abilities. Communism...er...socialism will provide for everyone regardless of talent!! illphil....... you used a lot of words for a guy who didn't say anything. Did you just bring a hippy poem to this board? Oh man - I feel violated - I need to go do something manly like duct tape my car door back on.

SpiderFreak "I honestly can't believe how many people are even jokingly supporting this thing. He's our PRESIDENT. Even if you disagree with him, he deserves your respect. I mean, you're supporting a game that promotes the assassination of our President. The very thought of Americans actually wishing our President was dead just boggles my mind. And it suprises some people that America is declining...When we can't even give proper respect to our own President, how can we even try to function well as a nation? And the worst part is is that you're doing EXACTLY what every single terrorist (Muslim or not) wants you to do. EXACTLY what they want." So I'm sure you stood behind Clinton when he was president right? Bush is just a president, not an emperor or King. I don't have to kiss his ass. Also, you people get mad over this but what about the Ghost Recons, Full Spectrum Warriors, and the Socoms that show the US going into other countries to blow up people, yet when someone does it about us, it's taboo? Not saying I support this game, but other people look at games like Socom and Ghost recon on the same standards that we look at this. On a final note, not saying weather or not I think the 9/11 conspiracy theroies are true or not, but if all they are is rubbish, why are you getting so bent out of shape over them?

I do claim Socialism is the best form of goverment. And if you think that the Nazis invented Socialism you are so ignorant it hurts. Go look it up on Wikipedia. The whole of Europe works on a combo form of Socialist/Capalist forms of goverment. This is the best form I believe. They have some of th ebst quality of life for the PEOPLE that live there that ot makes America look just plain sad and lame in so many ways. Universal Health Care and College Education are just two important issues here in America that the Europeans have solved, or at least gotten better than America by far. So wise up and stop believeing we have it the best in the world here in the US....

RaymondIV if liberals have a lot in common with terrorists, then republicans have a lot in common with nazi's. here are words for you from a well educated man known as IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE "The voice of racism preaching the gospel is devilish A fake church called the prophet Muhammad a terrorist Forgetting God is not a religion, but a spiritual bond And Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu'ran They bombed innocent people, tryin' to murder Saddam When you gave him those chemical weapons to go to war with Iran This is the information that they hold back from Peter Jennings Cause Condoleeza Rice is just a new age Sally Hemmings I break it down with critical language and spiritual anguish The Judas I hang with, the guilt of betraying Christ You murdered and stole his religion, and painting him white Translated in psychologically tainted philosophy Conservative political right wing, ideology Glued together sloppily, the blasphemy of a nation Got my back to the wall, cause I'm facin' assassination Guantanamo Bay, federal incarceration How could this be, the land of the free, home of the brave? Indigenous holocaust, and the home of the slaves Corporate America, dancin' offbeat to the rhythm You really think this country, never sponsored terrorism? Human rights violations, we continue the saga El Savador and the contras in Nicaragua And on top of that, you still wanna take me to prison Just cause I won't trade humanity for patriotism"

Well Gruug I think that people want this game because they realize that it is just a game about shooting people that looks entertaining to them. Or perhaps the people that want it are the people that did vote against Bush and are still a little sore that he won. Also you may have wanted to add protest to the way people can express displeasure in their elected officials. However, the fact that you mention it not belieiving how many people would want a game where they can shoot they leaders doesn't make sense to me, it's a game if people want to shoot the President in a game then all the power to them. Oh and VegetaMaelstrom I only wanted to include people that have recently been in, or are currently in, power and not those that have no chance of ever getting it. Now that I think about it though, if that were to happen then everyone else would feel left out, hmm........ah what the hell, let's throw em all in and have a merry ol'time at the Peace Tower.

I can't believe that there are so many citizens of the US that would suggest that they would want this game to be offered here in this country. Fortunately, I am certain that the actual number is small. Did my (few) fellow citizens suddenly forget that we express our pleasue and displeasure with elected officals at the ballot box and not with bullets? If you don't like the guy then I suggest you vote. If you don't, then what reason do you have to complain? Remeber that tyrants aren't the one's you vote but the one's you fail to vote against.
