Shows how AA ignores the plight of the poor, and wills of Colombia's people.

That was not to be taken as a bash against AA - just stating the obvious

It would strike me as a "bash", if it was my design. After all, you didn't have to phrase it as the game "ignoring" anything. The plight of the poor simply isn't in the scope of the game.

Games that cover the European theater of WWII don't "ignore" the plight of the Jew, either. It just doesn't have any place in assessing the implementation or outcome of combat operations. (The amount of combat-capable assets delegated to operating the camps is negligible, in the scale of operations on the Eastern front.)

The plight of the people is abstracted in by the terror markers isn't it?

The more terror-weary the population becomes the more difficult it is for any faction to influence their political views?
