Default Bad Guys In New Chinese Video Game Are U.S. Servicemembers

May 18, 2011 | 4:55 PM | By Beth Ford Roth

A new Chinese video game called Glorious Mission pits the gamer against an enemy – and that enemy is the United States Military, according to Wired.com. Glorious Mission is ironically based on a video game created by the U.S. Army as a recruiting tool, aptly called America’s Army, which puts gamers through virtual basic training, then onto a virtual battlefield.

However, as Wired.com points out:
There’s one key difference between the American and Chinese “shooters.” Where the bad guys in America’s Army are generic Middle Eastern or Central Asian insurgents and terrorists, the enemy in Glorious Mission is apparently the U.S. military. A TV report offers glimpses of an American-made Apache gunship crashing in flames.
Wired.com posted this video of Glorious Mission:

Well, yeah, but that's OK because we're Americans (and, to a lesser extent, Brits and Canadians.) They're not.

Good timing, seeing as "we" turned the bad guys in Homefront into North Koreans instead of Chinese just recently. And IIRC, the Chinese.. president? PM? just said that the Chinese military is "no match" for the Americans.

Weird country.

15 years ago, they were no match for the US auto industry, either.

They are smart. Make the world think they don't have what they do by being humble. We could take a few lessons in that department.

Timely:


Taxpayer-Supported GM Sponsors Chinese Communist Film


Cadillac is a beloved American brand. So why is it starring in a propaganda film about the birth of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)? The U.S. government-backed General Motors (GM) has offered the car up for use in a new film celebrating the CCP’s 90th birthday, “The Birth of a Party.”
GM’s sponsorship of this celebration is appalling, considering the bloody history of the Chinese Communist Party and the role it has played in China’s dismal human rights record. The film covers events leading up to the CCP’s creation in the early 1900s. Cadillac announced itself as a “chief business partner” of the communist propaganda film the same year China refused to release democracy and human rights advocate Liu Xiaobo from prison to receive the Nobel Prize. Xiaobo was represented at the ceremony by an empty chair.

The deal was made in hopes of helping GM recover from bankruptcy by expanding Cadillac’s popularity in China, its largest worldwide market. If GM were a completely private company, this would be a matter for its board and shareholders to take up with management. But as The Washington Times points out, the U.S. government owns 33 percent of GM. This means the American taxpayer is forced to support this gross publicity stunt. It also means the good name of the United States of America is on the line, not just that of a private company with a bottom line to meet.

There are certainly nobler causes to sponsor. For example, Heritage’s Dr. Lee Edwards chairs the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. The Memorial commemorates the more than 100 million victims of communism and is represented by a replica of a statue erected by Chinese students in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China in the spring of 1989. An estimated 65 million died as a result of communist brutality just under Mao Zedong. Surely this slaughter will not be part of the film GM is sponsoring.




I was going to quote a story where some Chinese Ambasator said their army is no match for the US, but I couldn't find the story agian.

Exactly. They were playing their capabilities down in an attempt to not scare us about their military growth.
