    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    muslims use computer games to kill westerners - oh noes!




    http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/tra...s/s1644639.htm

    turns out that a game fan used some audio from team america: world police to put over some game footage for laughs. somehow this was taken as ridgey didge!

    i mean, using games to encourage people to join up and fight a war is unsurprising and nothing new (the US does this in a big way) but the fact is that al-qaeda hasn't done this.

    the most interesting thing about this for me is hinted at by the kid who made the video:

    They demonised me by directly labeling me to someone from al-Qaeda who's trying to recruit innocent children that are playing this game…
    If they label me al-Qaeda just for making this silly video, that makes you think, what is this al-Qaeda? And is everything al-Qaeda?

    So it's okay to kill people from anywhere, Russian, Middle-eastern, black- as long as they aren't American.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    That's simultaneously hilarious and disturbing. Amazing how in this world of supposed rampant terrorism they have enough time on their hands to go after some kid who made a battlefield 2 video.

    I especially like this bit

    What the committee was told [was] that the game modifications, as one part of the larger overall propaganda campaign being executed by these extremist groups on the internet, are BEING USED by extremists (they don't respect intellectual property rights) as a "call to arms" in conjunction with other efforts to elicit sympathy with the extremist cause.
    I just love how they had to throw in the "they dont respect intellectual property rights". Nice one, they get a bakers dozen of eggs splattered on their face so they gotta quickly demonise the terrorists again and remind us all that yes, they are filthy game and music copiers.

    I'll definately have to watch mediawatch this week, i love it when they insult the hell out of morons like this.
