“Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.”

‘The best weapon against an enemy is another enemy.’ It’s January 1991. The decades-long Cold War has finally ended, leaving the U.S.S.R politically unstable. In the wake of this untimely end, another fire ignites in the arid deserts of Iraq, one that threatens to engulf West Asia. Saddam Hussein has invaded Kuwait, with the Iraqi military dropping an arsenal of bombs on the capital city, causing pandemonium in the region. Kuwaiti civilians and soldiers are helpless against the might of Iraq. The USA has decided to lead an unplanned coalition of 35 countries to carry out a military intervention as a part of its War on Terror. With the possibility of a brutal war hanging in the balance, the Group of 8 allows delegates to change the course of history- the question is for better or for worse.
