Chinese Military Video Game Targets Americans

We've covered a topic like this before where the Medal of Honor video game let you play Taliban forces shooting Americans. Now there's a new entry into the fray that elevates the question politically. Just recently the Chinese military has released a game called Glorious Revolution much like America's Army for their soldiers to train in virtual tactics. The target of choice - America.

In the previous discussion, folks commented that "it’s just a way to differentiate one team from the other." While that makes pretty good sense where a commercial game is concerned it makes you wonder whether a state sponsored training application chose a target of convenience or is intentionally making a political statement.
