There is no armed conflict infobox template in this wiki yet. Someone would have to create it first. Ausir 10:32, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Just Bugs Me Edit

I have some issues with the Resource Wars which Fallout 2 expanded upon:

  • Does anyone find it strange that they basically fought a war over a single oil rig? Unless that oil field was truly massive, there would be no hope of supplying an entire country.
  • How do you keep the location of said derrick hidden?
  • Fusion power was apparently available to the masses, meaning that oil would decrease in importance. (Fallout 2 even indicated that the PMV Valdez would normally be fusion powered, but wasn't marketing purposes). If you have fusion reactors that small, you don't have an energy crisis.

There is now an article to try and cover your 3rd point Oil_in_the_World_of_Fallout --Lodley 02:18, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

Petroleum dependancy and automobile fuel Edit

It should be mentioned that while most American automobiles were by this time being designed to operate via nuclear fusion (which would render petroleum supplies redundant) this is not be the case, as petroleum products would still be vital for many other applications (plastics, chemicals, etc).

the above moved from article--Gothemasticator 22:40, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

GNN as Canon fact Edit

Even without MCA's rejection of them as non-canon, it's very glaringly obvious that the GNN broadcasts are propaganda and not to be taken as any sort of fact. Canada "voting" to be annexed is very obviously countered from beginning to end of the series, since the sheer atrocity of the Canada campaign is the first thing you see and there is still stuff about it in New Vegas' expansions. The UN "disbanding" itself could very well just be moving its headquarters to Geneva, the US Army "kicking China's ass" can probably be chalked to trying to stoke patriotic fervor (there are no tanks in Baghdad, our boys in power armor have absolutely no problem at all with China's german-made gauss rifles or its own stealth troopers, a great spearhead of the Steiner army group will save Berlin from the soviet scourge, etc), as is the US export volume magically going up 20 times (which is basically impossible), since the US was completely falling apart. The string of unfortunate accidents comments makes it really obvious that the Chinese are right and the US did blow up the platform, it's not like they didn't build on that same damn spot.

This theory falls down when you consider the president's impeachment. Disbanding is also covered in the Capital post, and is cery different to the UN moving. US export volume, remember that at this point the US is the only producer of anything - no oil. Agent c (talk) 20:14, March 18, 2013 (UTC)
