No wargames on U.S.-Iran war?

There have been a lot of speculative wargames over the years looking at potential conflicts, but despite all the talk about a possible U.S. strike against Iran no one has tried designing a wargame on it yet.
This is a little surprising because it seems like a natural topic for a S&T magazine game. There were scores of U.S.-Soviet games, not to mention Arab-Israeli, U.S.-N.Korean and Indo-Pakistan wargames. There was even Back to Iraq! (in three editions) before that war.
I'd like to see Miranda or one of our other modern specialists look at this possibility. It might be educational.
