** Not the original troper, but it doesn't make that much sense because... even if they want the secondary unit to take the Statue for them, why wait 6 months until he's activated? That means 6 months where UNACTO is essentially under siege (and thus [[spoiler: a Majestic 12 base as well]]).

** I believe that the attack referenced in the intro isn't the current attack where the terrorists stole the vaccine but the earlier one mentioned by multiple characters throughout the game namely the bombing of the statue, this can be seen in the first level where the head and torch of the statue have been turned into a kind of memorial and it's even implied that it was the government that bombed the statue so they could use the island as a base for UNATCO

** Why is this Fride Logic? The idea is that six months pass between the intro and the first mission. This is further reinforced by Page mentioning that Simmons' appointment to FEMA will soon be finalised whereas in the game, he is already the head of FEMA.

Added DiffLines:

* You may find the fact that the battles between the Triads in Hong Kong are often swordfights somewhat anachronistic and culturally cliched. Then you remember that the Hong Kong Police use highly efficient acoustic sensors on the streets that allow them to quickly detect gunfire, so of course the Triads would look for a quick, cheap alternative that allows them to continue their gang war.

** As mentioned before, the first level takes place right after the actual terrorist attack. Did six months dilate suddenly to six seconds, or did UNATCO seriously order their troops to hold back for six months, eager to give JC a chance to prove himself?
*** The terrorist attack at the beginning of the game is not the same event as the terrorist bombing of the statue. Indeed, the bombing is the reason for the formation of UNATCO.
