Ok, firstly, let me address your use of the word 'you' - Just WOW!. I never even left where I was. I was never involved in any of the evening's events. Anyone who thinks I had some inside track on this event is mortally wrong.
And yes, I stand by my comments. In any conflict there is a degree of misdirection. Sometimes you even sacrifice people, for the greater good. Do the sacrifices know? NO, not typically - Coventry in WWII for example could have been avoided but the larger strategic goal of over-throwing the 'bad guys' was served by LETTING COVENTRY GET BOMBED. This is though still just a game, and given that there were 4 NPCS, only one of which was on the Xbox side, ask yourself, what level of involvement would have satisfied you?
Instancing and RL kept me from taking part, BUT I'm proud I took a stand. I made a commitment, according to my principles and I feel no poorer for not having been at Yuri's side.
Your screed, Blu, is particularly misplaced given the number of real-life veterans on here...
