An oddity for me today:
J5 and Japan just took Iraq.
No one else has touched the middle east due to various reasons. India is turtled and earning 5 ipcs. London was taken and some bad roles seriously hindered the UK overall. U.S. just liberated London and is starting to gather in Pacific (2 turns til at full attack ready)
So now Japan has Iraq with 5 inf and the SZ has a transport, carrier with 2 planes, a sub, and a cruiser.
I’m thinking I might put a factory there and be a giant PIA the rest of the game. Threaten Cairo that way. Or support my attacks on Russia… about to finish off China.
