    I'm not so sure about Osama bin Laden as a great general. There are many, many more fitting people.

    I second that. Terrorists do not belong on that list.

    I agree completely that Osama bin Laden does not belong in a list of "great people" and will be changing his entry in the mod to Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. on my PC.

    "No matter what you think of him, he can be considered a "Great General". After all he fought in many conflicts and wars and is one of the most important figures in recent military history and in large parts resposbile for the current state of the middle east." - quote from Steam. I completely agree. Napoleon too was a bloodsucker.

    All great generals were bloodsuckers. They all caused death and destruction, but the difference between them and Bin Laden is that they at least did it in times of war, sometimes wars they did not initiate themselves. Bin Laden basically killed people for the purpose of killing people.

    Norman Schwarzkopf is definitely more fitting.

    It is a new strategy and tactics (yes, ugly strategy and tactics) of warfare at the 21 century - called 'terrorism'. Awake... And bin Laden is the author of this strategy. If you are from Israel you should know it like no other.

    There is warfare and there is terrorism. They are not the same. A great general should be a military general who fought in actual wars, that's all. I am not getting into the moral questions and matters of controversy. I am just talking about semantics and definitions here. I just can't put Bin Laden on the same list as Napoleon, Patton, Vercingetorix, and the rest. There is a huge difference between planning a terrorist attack and commanding troops on the battlefield.

    Today there is no classical wars. Today there is hybrid (non-classical) wars. So we will have non-classical armies and non-classical Great Generals.

    Terrorism isn't a new tactic, nor is it a good one. It's based off of guerrilla warfare and all it did was, "Poke the bear." Causing a definite decline in the Middle-eastern economy because of wars and foreign invasions. Also Bin Laden wasn't the, "Author" of terrorism. What about the 61 islamic terrorist attacks before 9/11, the earliest of which was in 1979 and killed 244 people.

    But the American Government simply responded by invading the Middle east in the, "War on Terror." Bin Laden made the American Government suffer, sure. But it was the Americans who got the last laugh when the bombed the **** out of everything and killed him. Not really a great general, he wasn't even a general.

    I ran into an issue last night and wanted to make sure it was/wasn't this mod causing it. In my deity game, it didn't seem to "add" more great people--the list of great people seemed to be capped, meaning the new great people from this mod prevented later era great people from becoming available (for example, the space race contributors were never available). Have there been any other similar issues like this reported?
