At first glance, it’s hard to believe that it was Afghanistan that created the unofficial nickname for the United States. Then you consider the fact that it was after a decade of war, it’s hard to argue with the image of a country still in shock, and there was no way this would be a peaceful transition.
The country was actually the first to declare a “cease fire” agreement in 1991, and that the war would continue until the country’s sovereignty was restored. But then the Taliban, with help from al-Qaeda, decided to invade and take control of the country. When the Taliban eventually surrendered in 2001, the United States had already left, and President George Bush was sent in to negotiate a deal that the United States could continue to send troops.
It’s an interesting way to start off a story, especially when the Taliban is the antagonist. But we have to wonder if that was just a strategic move, or if Bush really was just looking for some pretext to get out and start his own country. Either way, we’re not sure that we like his decision to leave Afghanistan.
Bush is not the only prominent American in the book. The story also features a couple of women, a man named Sohail, and a man named Shahram who is a former CIA officer who is now living in Pakistan, trying to save his country from being ripped apart by the Taliban, and to keep his country from being invaded by the Russians.
The plot also features a bunch of guys who live in Afghanistan, the first being a CIA agent named Dan, who lives in a hotel and works as a photographer. The second is a British dude named Mark, who works as a security guard in a mosque. The third is a guy named Nazeem, who also works as a security guard.
It’s a plot that is very unlikely to ever see the light of day, but in this trailer it’s well-represented.
The trailer is also full of random dialogue sprinkled throughout that I don’t really care to quote, but you can check out the full trailer here.
I’m not even sure what to think about the new trailer. I do like the way the camera looks though.
A very interesting new trailer that is full of interesting details.The guys who make the game, Arkane, should be very proud of this trailer. The game is coming out this year on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. It will also release for the Nintendo and Sony mobile platforms.
A lot of people have been thinking about the trailer in the past. But we will definitely be doing it again in the next few weeks.
