    Free military game

    Hey guys, came across this retarded attempt at recruitment.

    This is a "Game" from the NZ army website. Thought it might provide a few chuckles...

    Am I the only one here who finds video games run by the military for recruitment purposes extremely disturbing?

    You want to be scared, check the kind of people who play America's Army.
    "Omg this is so cool when i hit 18 im gonna enlist ^____^"

    Also, that Force 9 is training how to defend against Zombies or something. With soldiers who cannot turn in combat :D

    I am a Psychology Technician for the U.S. Department of Defense and I work with U.S. Army IET soldiers every day. Ever since the war started the quality of the new soldiers has declined. I should start asking how many of them play Americas Army.

    It's the method of insinuating that war is "cool" and "fun" and "exciting", that scares me.

    This kind of propaganda is encouraging our children to go off and get themselves killed, so teh people in charge can continue to promote their own interests. When I hear people saying that a slain soldier in Iraq is a "hero" it sets me off. I mean what is heroic about getting paid to let someone else exploit (and squander) your life so that they can further their own personal agendas?

    Especially when the reason a lot of people join is because they are promoting this whole idea of "killing people is really cool".
    A notable example is the U.S Air Force website
    http://www.dosomethingamazing.com
    Check out the one where they drop the cluster bombs(or whatever I dunno what kinda bombs they are).
    Isn't that exciting? I mean you can kill people you don't even know en masse, and you wont even have to look them in the eye or hear their screams. Totally awesome!

    Meh, whatever. I wasn't brainwashed by the uber-coolness of the military, but I still joined. Gotta eat, ya know.

    Also, bombs ARE cool, so it's not really a trick if it's the truth.

    Nobody is going to dispute that :P

    But still, i think joining the army because it is cool is a fantastically bad idea


    (I served for a year in the FDF for what it's worth.)
