I saw this article and drawing which says

"Washington is laid to waste. The Capitol is a blackened, smoking ruin. The White House has been razed. Countless thousands are dead.


This is the apocalyptic scene terrorists hope to create if they ever get their hands on a nuclear bomb.


The computer-generated image below was posted on an Islamic extremists' website yesterday. "

And I think the art is stolen from Fallout 3!  Wonder if Bethesda will be getting a few calls?

The artwork wasn't stolen, it was created FOR the terrorists BY bethesda.  i've always been suspicious of those guys.  creating games that keep me indoors for days on end....what better way to conquer america for their jihadist masters than creating a nation of couch potatoes!?

The article's been updated.  Apparently we have an agent in the Middle-East who has traced the source of the propaganda website to this guy:

Updated!

There's a new image out that shows what horrifying future we have to look forward to.  It's kind of disturbing, so spoiler tag:

It's one thing to threaten the destruction of the USA but they have to be insane to cause the wrath of Bethesda's lawyers for copy right infringements. icon_biggrin

I can just see a teenage jihadi nerd lol'ing at his brazen act of gaming piracy, then going back to GTAIV!

Also anyone wondered how Bethesda survived as a studio between the release of Daggerfall and Morrowind? Or how did they survive between the first Elder Scroll game to Daggerfall release? How did they manage to stay in business releasing one game every several years. Must be money laundering business for the terrorists.
