What does "RC in Libya at any governance" mean on the card ? Is that mean US can freely choose new governance (even Good ?), or, they may RC there whatever initial governance, and have to roll for it after Deploy ? (I don't know if i'm clear !). IMHO ,it's the second solution.
Thank you for the answer ;
Excellent game, indeed, very realistic !

It means the US can do regime change vs Libya regardless of Libya's current governance status. Normally, RC can only be done vs Islamic regimes. So if Libya was "poor" or "fair" or even somehow "good", US could send in the troops.

Islamist please! This is getting to be a common mistake but it's crucially important we all recognise there is a big difference between Islamic and Islamist. The former refers to the religion, which any of its followers would tell you preaches peace and tolerance of other religions; the latter is an ideology which preaches the opposite.

Indeed, and in the game I mean a particular form even of "Islamist Rule" (as noted in the Glossary) -- an extremist form of Islamism as found in Afghanistan under the Taliban or in parts of Iraq under al-Qaeda. Contrast that with the Islamism of, for example, HAMAS.

Thanks for the question and answers! best, vfr

Is this what Islamists say to one another when they're shocked?
