Thank you for clearing that up and stating the bleeding obvious! I am a former airman/soldier who has served in Northern Ireland and Oman.
Back then we didn't have computer games, we had booze. Some guys even had grass. But Yanks in Viet Nam had booze and hard drugs. We had our escapes
and they had theirs.
Now I see my former comrades go out on patrol in Iraq and Afghanistan, engage in a fire fight with the jundies, come back safe and sound to patrol
bases and about an hour or two later, they're playing 'shoot-em-ups' on play stations, iPads or whatever! It releases pent up emotions and tensions
and is a great stress buster.
Are you suggesting that by playing these games they might, just might, flout the Law of Armed Conflict? Get off your high horse because these guys
know all about the Law of Armed Conflict and abide by them daily, each time they pick up their Gat and put on their body armour and move out on
By the way, what do you do for a living?
