I don't think anyone said anything about the Medal of Honor game being banned, just a specific portion of it has been removed. Let's not blow this out of proportion.

I agree that this is the right thing to do, because:

We are still at war with the Taliban and they are still killing American soldiers!

Could you imagine Americans pretending to be Nazis killing American soldiers in 1942? They would be traitors. The same applies to American citizens wanting to play as Taliban forces today. You might not take warfare seriously, but it's a real thing I can assure you of that.

The option to play as Taliban forces should never have been considered for inclusion into this or any American-produced game.

I can't applaud EA for removing this option, because I see it as more along the lines of damage control after they caught flak for what was an ill-conceived notion in the first place.
