Why the arrested ArmA developers should have known better

The most serious issue in gaming right now: two ArmA 3 developers facing twenty years in prison for allegedly spying on a Greek military base. The two were on Lemnos when they photographed a Greek air base.

While it’s natural to want to side with the developers, the circumstances of the case are important. Next door to Lemnos is Turkey, and between the two countries are recently discovered oil reserves. Sounding like the storyline of any recent brown-sim FPS, the place is just waiting to blow up. Taking any kind of photos of Greek military bases on the ground is somewhat naive.
