Gulf War Game (came out late 2002)

idleworm: gulf war game: "Gulf War 2 (aka World War 2.5)
It's the mother of all Flash games.

This game was right about the Shia rebellion. It was right about Iranian support of the Shia. It was right about a coup in Pakistan overthrowing Musharraf, and the ensuing nervousness about who has control of their nukes. I'm afraid about which of its other predictions the game may wind up being proved correct. But, what's even more scary is how a sole animator was right about so much, when thousands of bureaucrats and military strategists were wrong. Is that a reasonable premise? No, it's not. We were lied into the war. We were not told its true purpose, duration, or cost. These were not mistakes.
