I was gonna say the same thing, but it'll never happen. No one's going to stand up to oil-rich Russia, not when it's such a key international player.

It's eerie, though. The game says that Russia invades Georgia in August of 2008. Look at your calendar - Russia's just invaded Georgia, and, well...

Explosive material. Handle with care.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking this. I remeber getting this game back in 6th grade for the PC, it's just erie because as I was playing it 7 years ago, those very same events were going to happen in real life at the exact same time in the game. Wow this game predicted history.

If we weren't wrapped up in the Afganistan/Iraq debacle, we would have already given Russia a pull out ultimatum. A possible World War III avoided thanks to our stupid decisions in the Middle East?

I just picked this up again for $3 at gamestop a month ago. I was laughed while reading the back of the box 'the year is 2008.' now the russia/georgia thing, this is ridiculous.

To HD or to not HD?

It looks like the ordeal is over now. Russian operations have been called off even though there are reports of some fighting still. They said they've inflicted punishment for their actions now.

Apparently there has been a cease fire order on behalf of Russia. The Ghosts shut things down, behind the scenes, ahead of schedule :)
Keep watching the news, soon there is going to be some military upheavel involving Cuba and Columbia, then Ethiopia! The Ghosts are out there.
