While you are reading this, the Iranian reactor produces enriched bomb-grade uranium. Terrorists can deliver that bomb to your city, and it can kill you and your children. Yet the government does nothing.

Do we demand violence? Not in any common sense. Similarly, police use force to arrest criminals in order to stop violence.

But Iran is not a criminal? Wrong. Iran has proven malicious intent. Iran, under the current regime, conducted many terrorist bombings in the West, and sponsors deadly terrorists. Iranian leaders repeatedly called for fight against the United States and annihilation of Israel.

Perhaps Iran needs nuclear weapons for self-defense? No. Iran already bullies the Middle East with its huge conventional army. No country threatens Iran.

Since the eighth-century jihad and the Ottoman army at the gates of Vienna, the West has never been exposed to such threat. Iran’s several nuclear bombs can inflict more damage on America than the World War II. Never before the Islamic fundamentalists who hate the West and dream of attacking it had military might of apocalyptic dimensions. Are you crazy to doubt they will use the bomb?

We call on the United States: Do not hesitate. Protect your people. Protect your allies. Destroy the Iranian reactor!

Oh! This game is great! Your mission is to defend Israel, so they let you drop bombs on any Arabs you want. Be careful! If you kill too many noncombatants it will earn you some finger waving from the international community!

Time to lock down new regitrations...

Anyways, Amenijihadjihad may be a little nuts, but he's not stupid. He's simply borrowing an idea from Kim Jong-Il and extorting the west for money with vieled threats of "hey, nukes".

The solution in dealing with both is identical really: Let them have their "defensive" and/or "domestic" nuclear programs. However, make it full well known that their entire coutries will be obliterarted into a pile of glowing liquid goo within a half hour of any hostile nuclear action.

I played it. Not that good. 3/10. Plus they didn't even have an Osama cameo. WTF is up with that?

Pretty cliché plot, TBH. This series is getting way too repetitive: always the same main characters (including the useless pacifist sidekicks), the same generic bad guys, and the same boring "Save the princess/Israel/the US/the World from WMD/terror/nukes/whatevAer by bombing some random arab country" story.

I'm not a big fan of petition games either: the interaction is crap, very unresponsive - apart from a little bit of key mashing, it's mostly news cutscenes.
Arguably, dedicated players can upgrade their accounts to get a bit of some more immersive, FPS-like action - but I've heard bad reviews about that part of the game as well: very different from what the players expected after watching the so-called "in-game" demo footages, actually.
According to some rumors, most of the videos you see in commercials are actually pre-rendered, and/or heavily photoshoped. Seriously, such deceptive marketing practices should be banned boo

In conclusion, I'd say don't buy this game, it's rubbish. The only good reviews I've heard seem to come from unconditional fanboys, really.

I think its a form of mad libs!

While you are reading this, the Israeli reactor produces enriched wedding cake-grade batter. Cake makers can deliver that cake to your doorstep, and it can satisfy you and your children. Yet the plastic man does hurt.

Do we demand more icing? Not in any overdone sense. Similarly, pie makers use fruit filling to fill pies in order to stop THE CAKE INVASION.

But Iran is not a cake lover? Wrong. Iran has proven to maliciously love tasty cake. Iran, under the current regime, conducted many pie fights in the West, and sponsors deadly fitness expert assassins. Iranian leaders repeatedly called for fight against the Super healthy friends and annihilation of diet pills.

Perhaps Iran needs pie AND cake for maximum tasty treat availablity? No. Iran already fills the Middle East with its huge stock of tasty cakes and cake like pastries. No country matches Iran cake for cake.

Since the eighth-century cake jihad and the Ottoman pie competition at the gates of CAKEOPOLIS, the West has never been exposed to such a large number of tasty cakes and pies on a weekday. Iran’s several types of tasty can inflict more fattening of America than the Great long island cake meltdown of 1944. Never before the Islamic [/b]cake decorators[/b] who hate the West cake decorators and dream of attacking with pies AND cakes of apocalyptic PORTIONS! Are you crazy to doubt they will use the super CAKES and PIES?

We call on the United States: Do not diet. Feed your people. Sample your allies tasty cakes and wives. Sample the Iranian cakes!

Damien never moved the thread. Also this isn't bot spam any more than a Collin rant is botspam. Sheila = Rinoa.

As I recall, Rinoa was named Sheila and also at least of Israeli heritage if not straight up an Israel citizen. Perhaps I'm misremembering, but if I'm correct, it seems unlikely to me that another Sheila from Israel would have come to Square Gamer to post a petition about Iran. It was Rinoa.

What an odd thing to do.
In other news, who has read Persepolis here?

Good book, imho.

Have you read the full series? I'm not sure all of it has been translated into English, usually I just see the first volume in shops and libraries.
I haven't seen the film yet.

Yes, but it’s only two volumes as I recall. (Though maybe there are versions where this is split up further.)

That's why everybody was talking about and reviewing the game at the start of the thread.
