World War 2.5: The Game

leave a comment »

Nearly three and a half years ago, during the runup to the invasion of Iraq, we posted a link from the Utne Web Watch to a clever flash game called “Gulf War 2 (aka World War 2.5).” Billing itself as “the mother of all Flash games,” the site spins a nightmare scenario in which cartoon versions of Cheney, Rummy, Condi, and Powell rush us to war, only to find that our actions turn Iraq into a breeding ground for terrorists and ignite a wider regional war.

In light of the deteriorating situation in the Middle East today, with Israel bombing the bejeezus out of Lebanon, the designer of Gulf War 2 may turn out to have been alarmingly accurate in his predictions.
