Finally, Video Games Accused Of Causing Terrorism! (GRAPHIC)

They’ve been blamed for mass murder. They’ve been blamed for crime. They’ve even been blamed for political unrest. There are all terrible, terrible things they actually had nothing to do with but are still responsible for. But the true threat posed by video games has never been confronted. Until Now.

At long last, the brave journalists at The Sun have finally managed to make the nefarious, nonexistent connection between video gaming, and SCARY INTERNATIONAL TERROR!

Granted, what the Sun doesn’t mention is that the only thing Al Queda would learn playing Call of Duty is that we can defeat them by requiring them to purchase a gold membership to access any foreign country. But just to be safe, we should burn all our Xboxes and hang anyone caught talking about hunting zombies.

lol…if this story were true it would be about them using a combat simulator game like ARMA2 not an arcade p.o.s. like CoD.

if they really are using CoD then we have nothing to fear.

I read the article, but despite the headline and a couple of lines about terrorists trying to learn from the game, the article seemed to be more about terrorists using the VoIP functions to discuss plans with each other during matches because it’s harder to trace. Still, as a training simulator, it would be interesting to see terrorists running around with dual 1887′s and bunny hopping.

It’s true. This stuff makes geeks and nerds get even crazier. That’s why we can’t get enough.
