Player can't "join in". But in the standard US version the player is an active part of the terrorist group.

Killing civilians in Modern Warfare 2. Why ?
Media controversy alert - a leaked video of Modern Warfare 2 shows a level in which players commit a terrorist atrocity.
Expect a media storm when the mainstream press gets hold of this. This video supposedly shows a level in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 where the player guns down unarmed civilians at an airport.
The context seems to be that the player is taking on the role of Russian terrorist Makarov, but even so, we find it hard to stomach. We can't imagine the context that would make this okay.
In a time of intense media scrutiny over the content of videogames one wonders what possessed Infinity Ward and Activision to include such a sequence.
