    Honestly though, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 had us killing Russian (not Soviet) soldiers left and right. Even a mission where a US troop went in and killed hundreds of Russian Civilians in an airport. Couldn't expect it to be long before someone came out with a game that had us as the main target.

    It also had the governor of California. There were lots of movies with Muslim bad guys prior to 9/11. For example:
    Iron Eagle (1986)
    Death Before Dishonor (1987)
    Navy SEALs (1990)
    The Delta Force (film) (1991)
    Patriot Games (1992)
    Executive Decision (1996)
    But, after the jihadis killed 3,000 of us, Hollywood suddenly decided that they weren't so bad after all.

    Wow. Again, please tell me you're not this dense. Question: Was True Lies made before or after 9/11? Answer: Before. Get it? After 9/11, making Islamic terrorism the main focus was curbed dramatically. Even on 24 when some seasons started out with Islamic terrorists, the real threat turned out to be anything but Islam and the terrorists were rarely seen using Islam as their motivation. In one episode, a terrorist blowing up a train said Allah Akbar and the producers caught holy hell for it and it was subsequently edited out from other showings.

    Hollywood really screwed up on this one. Considering how they floundered pathetically for a universal bad-guy after the end of The Cold War (seriously? Colombian drug lords?), radical Islam was a gift from Plot Device Heaven.

    BTW, The Living Daylights is great fun to watch because it is one of the few films where Islamic fascists are the good guys.

    Only compared to the Soviets. Another movie, The Beast, about Soviet tankers in Afghanistan, is another one where you end up rooting for the Afghans against the Russians. But, the caveat is that, just as we allied with Stalin to defeat Hitler, we allied with Islamists to defeat Stalin's heirs. Now, we have to defeat the Islamic fascists. It's not that hard to understand.

    I know it is easy to understand (well ... in the context of human "civilization").

    Makes me wonder who we are allied with now that our kids will have to fight.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
