VIDEO: HOW THE PENTAGON AND CIA PUSH VENEZUELA REGIME-CHANGE PROPAGANDA IN VIDEO GAMES

THE US MILITARY AND CIA LAUNDER COUP PROPAGANDA THROUGH POPULAR FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER VIDEO GAMES LIKE CALL OF DUTY, SIMULATING ASSASSINATIONS OF VENEZUELA’S SOCIALIST LEADER AND SABOTAGE OF ITS ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE.

We often think of video games as fiction, but the US government has weaponized them to advance its agenda around the globe.

SIMULATING VENEZUELA INVASION IN “CALL OF DUTY”
Venezuelan citizen journalists Orlenys Ortiz and Sancocho Power have drawn attention to the similarity between the plot of a 2013 first person shooter game, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and alleged acts of US sabotage against the country this March.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is set in a dystopian future after the Middle East is nuked. A Venezuelan general comes into power, establishing a socialist style federation that spreads across Latin America like a disease, uniting all oil producing nations and expelling US citizens.

You as the player are part of an elite force of US commandos that invades the country, murders the socialist leader, and destroys his federation.

The US Special Operations forces open their assault by launching a rocket at a dam that looks strikingly similar to Venezuela’s Guri dam, an act of deliberate terror that floods the streets of Caracas.

The city is recreated in vivid detail, down to the Chavista graffiti that colors city walls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somewhere, in this big, wide world of computer games, there need to be a few, which bring the concepts of cooperation, personal responsibility, free thought, and the taking care of others need to rule the day; otherwise, I am deeply concerned that our world will become just as dystopian as is this game.
