Hey, what about wars between various countries? Nothing will change man :P
1. 1 or more countries can fight. (Yeah, 1 too - civil wars)
2. Countries that fight have their funding decreased.
3. You have a chance to meet soldiers in terror areas.

That a good idea.
But how will the soldiers react?

Will they soot you and/or the aliens on sight?
:laser:
:alientalk: :plasma:

There should also be a chance for the terrain to be hit with artillery during the mission.

Since X-COM is a "Blast-all-the-aliens-u-find" Team, i don't think the other countries would dare to shoot the guys that are saving their butts!!
As for the artillery idea I think it would work (BIG BOOM WARS!!!); just the thougt of going in the heat of battle and the snakeman on your front being pulverized by cannon fire.... you get the idea.

"Sir! What's that fireball in the skies?"
"What fire... WTF!?"
*BOOM*

Would countries at war with each other really meet in a room and talk about aliens?
Hmm... they could both fund X-Corps to sneak in spys on each other...

My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.

It would be cool that when you encouter soldiers, they would shoot at each other.
If one of the soldiers is a spy or is from one of the countries, he or her would abandon there post and join the fight.

It would also be cool if one of the war countries offer you a good amount of money to attack,in SECRET, the other countrie . :D

X-Corps agents would be very good for espionage missions, and maybe some strike missions. I hope there's alot of money involved, cause I don't want them to die for pennies. :D

Yea... sending troops to die for "lunch money" is a bit foolish...

During or directly after a war, any troops you recruit from the involved countries ought to be above rookie status and, if we implement the specific skills for specific weapons, then they all ought to have nice bonuses in the standard human weapons.
