Pentagon Researcher Unveils Warcraft Terror Plot


blog.wired.com

The American military and intelligence communities are increasingly worried that would-be bin Ladens might gather in a virtual world, to plan a real-life attack. But the spies haven\'t given many details, about how it might be done. Now, a Pentagon researcher has laid out how such a terror plot might unfold. The planning ground is World of Warcraft. The main target of this possibly nuclear strike: the White House.

Lee's right, it's been suggested before here.

Why is it being brought back up?

Yeah why would they use an encrypted messenger or anything when they could pay money to be in World of Warcraft and have their conversations seen by any mod there and kept in logs..

Sounds downright stupid to me.

As opposed to simply talking in any other chat line, game, forum, or pretty much anywhere which allows you to converse with other people?

Why World of Warcraft?


lol, I can't see anyone recruiting someone worthwhile anyways...


LEADER:
"New recruit, go plant the bomb at the discussed target"

RECRUIT:
"But I'm busy making my character dance, oh hey, a lvl 40 police officer, massive AGGRO!!!!!"

LEADER:
"... I should have recruited from Counterstrike"

OLD RECRUIT:
"BOOM HEADSHOT, OMG LOL, HAHAHA, OH NOES NADE!"

LEADER:
"Oh right... already tried that one."

You guys didn't know Osama Bin Laden is training his arcane mage talents, while hiding in a cave? Obviously, he's trying to rack up points in a 2v2 arena team, before WoLK comes out in 2 months.

Jeeze, and people say I've been living under a rock

It's totally saturated with people. If they wanted to "hide" within a game, there probably isn't a better means. WoW is HUGE.

That said, this idea is absurd IMO.

So yeah, they brought it up again.

I am thinking they just want to play WOW and get paid for it, under the guise of looking for "terrorists". I am serious, I think that's what this is lol.

Upon hearing this disconcerting news, president Bush met with top military leadership today to discuss the strategic implications of such a threatening move. This evening Bush held a press conference at the oval office to declare the formation of a new government agency - The Department of Warcraft Security. This bold new program involves the use of federal cyberspace marshals that will monitor various WOW servers disguised as normal players to engage in player vs player battles against the terrorists.

In his speech president Bush stated:



I know Americans are concerned about these new developments in terrorist activities. The Department of Warcraft Security will protect the freedoms America holds dear. We will meet the enemy in any place the terrorist gather and we will not sleep until the terrorist are defeated...

Besides the fact that this is a re-hashed idea, the article has a misleading title. It makes it sound as if a researcher had actually found proof of a real 'terrorist' cell in WoW.

That isn't the case, this is nothing but some money draining idea that some one obviously came up with after smoking a bunch of crack after a night binging in a guild raid. Likely some analyst wasn't meeting quota and had to come up with some a new scenario to funnel money into an investigative team.

"LOL GUYZ i BET we cAN all getz PAID to raID!!###!!111"

I think you may have nailed it. I can just see a couple guys chatting at the watercooler...

"Hey, I've got an idea on how we can level up our characters at work without getting busted!"

"Nah, they'll never buy it."

(later that afternoon)

"SWEET!!! I can't believe they bought it! I mean really.. 'terrorists on WoW'?"

"Yeah, that bit about them 'flight training' on flying mounts was priceless!"

My guild and I were going to level up some new Rogue alts to 70, sneak into the White House and pickpocket Dick Cheney. We were then going to use a Warlock to seduce Rice whilst we have our MT and OT taking on the Marine guards. Of course out the back is our trusty Resto Druid spamming those HoTs on all of us to keep us alive


It is all going to plan, although we fully expect a wipe or two leading up to the entrance to the first boss, Bush (who has some phat lewts like [Cape of the Fallen Screwup]).

well if the terrorists are spreading the word of islam and converting people as well as plotting the end of the USA

just wait for he influx of funndies to make it more godly and boot out the heathens

i wonder how long for the bumper stickers to start appearing

"Horde for the lord!"

"blessed is the dark elf for he knoweth the word of christ"


how long until the military start thier invasion of WOW, entire divisions dedicated to destroy the evil terrorists in guild raids and pvp. the military never looked more fun. and you dont even need all that fitness stuff either

This is the best news I have ever heard...

Once the terrorists are in Warcraft thier real world plots are done, thier real lives are done, lets face it if there is anything more commanding of the human mind than blind subservience to Allah...

It's leveling

First technique they practice in raid fashion they are hooked and never going to bomb a damn thing.

they will have no choice but to play the game because they will keep getting killed on the way to meeting locations and have to level up, then all the seasoned terrorists have to power level the newbies and...

Then they aren't eating much but mountain dew and doritos, they start having problems with thier wives and kids... prayer time starts to diminish, the daily prayer to mecca goes out the door because of delays and bandwidth issues and other problems

Next.. Islam is just one bad ass guild


We did it we won the War on terror! American Cultural Imperialism wins again... it was only a matter of time
