Video Game Trailer Indicates That World War III Will Follow 2008 Election

Have you seen the videos promoting the launch of Ubisoft's voice-operated RTS "EndWar"?

The trailer is full of bombs and explosions -- even a shot of the Capitol Building blowing up -- as the futuristic world of "EndWar" enters near-apocalypse. These events appear to follow an evenly contested 2008 Presidential Election campaign (we don't find out who wins).

The video teases the game's release date, tomorrow, which is coincidentally (or not-so-coincidentally) the day after Americans vote for their next President. "EndWar" has a fictional premise, but it's still a bit unnerving to see it show the country and the world torn apart. Does the timing of "EndWar," combined with its grim setting, throw anyone else for a loop?
