Not sure which talking point I should utilize. The decade old one of how the game dishonors our military veterans and trivializes their sacrifice or the new one that the game dishonors the Iraqi victims and trivializes their "murder" which in and of itself is an interesting term to use.
The original phone and e-mail campaign was primarily sourced from 'right wing' outlets which successfully got Konami to stop development of the game over a decade ago. But now it's left wing journalists, game devs and other blue checkmarks who want this game, now that its been revived to come to PC, that want to cancel it now for victimizing (more then Fallujah itself apparently experienced these past two decades) the Iraqis as apparently victims of mass murder and the potential of creating "future mass shooters."
The correlations of how this game will breed real world racism based violence is silly enough. But now you have numerous games journalists, voice actors and developers demanding that the government itself should step in censor the video game market are myopic enough.
