OXM UK: Modern Warfare 2 Plot Explained

OXM UK writes: "Lots of people have said that Modern Warfare 2's plot has left them baffled. (SPOILERS BELOW!)

They can't understand why Price fired a nuclear missile at the US, or why Russia went to war with the US, or why Shepherd did... well, pretty much all the crazy things he did."

***spoilers for COD6, obviously***
I didn't get the impression that Shepherd was working together with Makarov. I still don't really get why Shepherd betrayed "you," and the more I think about it and try to make sense of it the less I understand it. Simply so more people would fight in the army and that he could take credit for retrieving all the intel 141 found? I feel like Shepherd's plot twist served more to extend the story into another game than anything else. For me, the biggest narrative function of the No Russian scene was to get me pissed off at Makarov, and it did. That was left totally unresolved. By the time Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2: 2 comes out (or whatever they decide to call it), I'm not gonna care.
