10/10 for bad taste
Back to Arkham Horror (tm).
Speculation regarding a possible Israeli air campaign against Iran's nuclear facilities has been rife for years – a pair of MIT students wrote an analysis on the subject back in 2007, and countless articles have appeared before then and since.

permission to overfly...
so not very realisic then.
You only get permission to overfly if you roll a six.
Ahhhh - I see your point, it's much harder to roll a six than get some UN nut job to support you for thirty pieces of silver.
And why would Israel even have to do it - they'll just get the Yanks to blow Iran to hell.
Pah - it'll be the backdrop for MW4, just you watch. And it'll be f*ing brilliant.
I am still playing with Harpoon CE, yesterday I sunk half the Soviet fleet...
You are not very good at it then.
Mind you, I have been playing Harpoon since it came out on the Amiga last century!!!!!
Later updates do include Israel and various arabic countries duking it out with nukes on the menu.
A Nuke.. natch!
I can't stand this constant egging on of Israel v Iran. They're not at war and don't need to be.
It's just like a group of schoolchildren standing round two of their unwilling number chanting 'Fight! Fight! Fight!', but with real and potentially horrendous impact on millions of innocent people.
War is not cool.

Let's play Global Themornuclear War...
"having moved down the agenda in recent years after the mysterious Stuxnet worm was widely believed to have caused a massive setback to Iran's quest for nuclear weapons"
should be fixed to:
"having stayed down in spite of relentless Israeli/Neocon pressure after no credible evidence ever surfaced that Iran's quest for nuclear weapons wasn't indeed abandoned in 2003"
But in the cockpit's techno glow
Behind the Ray Ban shine
The kid from Cleveland
In the comfort of routine
Scans his dials and smiles
Secure in the beauty of military life
There is no right, no wrong
Only tin cans and cordite and white cliffs
And blue skies and flight... flight... flight
Only takes one mention of the I-word (or the associated A-word) to get the venomous hate-mongers boiling over with their petty spiteful rage and fury etc. etc.
Copied "Amused to death" onto my phone last night. Think ill have a listen now. Cheers !
And the world slides towards a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" moment with Iran.....
If we're really going to get clear-headed and all will-to-power about this, let's take out the current Syrian government first and THEN go on to Iran. Otherwise Iran is going to use Syria to stir things up/resupply Hezbollah so they can stir things up.
At least that way we will save a tens or hundreds of thousands of Syrians from torture along the way and head off most of a general war in the ME.
