Reuters is reporting:
A new Iranian computer game sets players the task of blowing up a U.S. tanker in the Gulf to block the sea route for much of the world’s oil supplies, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Whether its “conflict: desert storm” or “delta force: task force dagger”, they have all pushed the brains of people into considering such acts as deeds of patriotism, but when Iran does it from their point-of-view its not patriotic, it becomes terrorism?
