* At the beginning of the twelfth chapter, Rooftops, if the player stands around for a few moments, Walker will say, "It's Kabul all over again." which may indicate that Walker's hallucination are, in part, PTSD-induced flashbacks triggered by current events closely mirroring his traumatic memories (and then further building upon them given Dubai's own horrors).

* The American Army deploys to a middle eastern country, over the protests of its government, to rescue the population. When given the impetus to leave, the Army instead chooses to stay, resulting in a quagmire in which the local population is subject to a foreign military dictatorship ostensibly in place to ensure order, but which commits many atrocities. From these atrocities, the disgruntled people become insurgents and fight back, with civilians caught in the cross fire. Now, does that describe Spec Ops the Line...or the [[WarOnTerror Iraq War?]]

* As [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw]] says [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/video-games/columns/extra-punctuation/9810-Crossing-Spec-Ops-The-Line here]], "I think what says it all about Spec Ops is that your final choice in the game is whether or not to shoot [[spoiler:yourself in the head.]] And that you really, really have to think about it." The FinalBoss is [[spoiler:''Walker'' AKA '''yourself, the player''']]. And having spent the game observing his atrocities and his reasons for committing them, you have to decide what his punishment for those crimes will be; death, madness, or to be hauled into court for trial.

*** [[spoiler:Not just Walker, but Lugo and Adams as well, in the Room with the five burned soldiers where Walker pics up the Walkie-Talkie you can see lists of Casualties. Among them are Sgt. Lugo and Lt. Adams! That is another point showing that the Player just re"lives" the horror of Dubai, knowing exactly how it will end.]]
