Steam: can't activate CoD Black Ops (proxy in germany)

I have a good ol' American blood-n-guts copy of Black Ops that I can't activate on Steam. I'm in the mideast on a crappy internet connection (lucky to have anything at all in the desert I suppose) but apparently my connection runs through a proxy in Germany- where Black Ops is banned.

So, steam gets pissy and tells me the game isn't available for purchase 'in my country'. Nevermind the fact that I've already in fact very much purchased it, and germany is not 'my country'

Anyone know the best way around this? I've read several supposed techniques and a fair amount of which seem conflicting and some that supposedly will only work until steam decides to lock you out of your own damn game.

I love you long time if you can help me out. <3

grab a shellmix account, set up a proxy and connect through that for the activation, you should still be able to play the game afterwards

although I when I hear about people playing CoD in the sandbox
