Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Some Spoilers)
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:08:17 PM »
I've been a Call of Duty nut since the first one came out so of course I bought Black Ops 2 yesterday.  I'm almost done with the single player campaign and I find a lot of what they put into it interesting.  I'm not all the way through, so there might be more.

- It takes place in 2025 and the 1980s, but the 2025 campaign is more interesting.

- The carrier you operate off of is the U.S.S. Barack Obama (CVN-08).  It gets sunk.

- The President is probably supposed to be Hillary.

- The head bad guy is like a nuclear OWSer on steroids

- The U.S. Secretary of Defense is David Petraeus (Yes, that David Petraeus)

- There is a direct reference to 9/11 by Petraeus, and the carrier battle group's commander who was a pilot @ the time and flew a combat mission in response to the attack.

"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton
