Valid point - but why delete?
As i said it's doesn't seem to matter, the influence is all over the place, Crytek is a german-turkish developer and they make western style games, but on a must lesser scale and no controversy crap.
On to the gaming side of things, you see most developers go into the "established arena" one dev pumps out MW2 and the whole industry has temptation to "transition" to it, which is what i call "trend hogging" or a more business term "following suits" - and extremely bad idea for the creational / design department and is purely a commercial decision by the bad leads.
To me that's just uninspired and some totally not artistical way of designing games, it's also saddening that these larely irrelevant studios have so much media power and easily make news while the important studios tend to be less showcased, the inexperienced studios pour a lot of that spice into marketing of course, they don't know to create better game and fast so those resources transition, while the old cats rather make a great game (eg. sc2) and the opposite example, Zynga the biggest nolifers ever.

The whole idea of Iran getting Nuclear War heads is just more War Propaganda. The game itself seemed more like a smear campaign against Iran. Am I defending Iran? No. I don't care about Iran, I care about my country. But, the fact of the matter is that Iran doesn't even have a nuclear weapon. There has been no evidence that they even have one. Iran doesn't even have enough gasoline to produce for its own country (they have to borrow it), let alone do they pose a threat to us. Look what happen when we told Libya to disarm all their Nukes. Now the US Puppet Gidahffi is no longer alive. For fuck sakes, Isreal has over 300,000 nuclear war heads. Why are there not sanctions on Isreal? Maybe because we pay for their national defense, foreign aide, etc...? Oh wait, I'm considered an anti-smite because I disagree with Israel stances on world affairs? Not that many people know that there were 30,000 Jews in the Nazi Army.
The gadaffi wasn't the puppet directly, he was just left along to enjoy because he made great oil exports. But they didn't cared for him so they got "rid" of him fairly quickly.
Other than that ... you're absolutely correct. Fishy stuff.
Notice the connection with media franchises i spoken before. The Wizard of Oz.
The whole point is, you should anonymously petition any gaming company making familiar stories, the music is gone, the movies are meh, don't let games be eaten by this hollywood empire.
