Take Down Osama bin Laden in a Video Game

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

A video game, launched shy of a
week after United States Special
Forces killed Osama bin Laden at
his compound in Abbottabad,
Pakistan, allows players/gamers
to re-enact the circumstances
that took down bin Laden.

KumaWar Episode 107- Osama 2011,
the latest in a series of free
online games based on anti-terror
themes. The game gives players
the chance to lead the team that
took down bin Laden.

The game offers one variation on
the actual mission, and it's
that the virtual Special Forces
can suffer casualties.

"In forty minutes and a rain of
hot lead, a decades-long,
worldwide manhunt for Osama bin
Laden will be ended... by you,"
the web site of New York based
Kuma Games, which released online
the first person shooter over
the weekend.

The company made the claim of
realistically recreating the
compound, weapons and mission
objectives from bin Laden's
real-life take down based on
news reports.

One screen shot on the game's
web site creates an image that
the Obama administration hasn't
released, and that's bin Laden's
corpse with a head wound.

"I think it might actually draw
interest for young men and women
to serve in the military," Neil
Livingstone, CEO of the corporate
security firm ExecutiveAction.
"The Army had its own video game
at one point to draw young men
and women into the service,"
Livingstone added.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
