Call Of Duty is massive terrorist training camp

20 March 2012

call of dutyOh god no! Our video games are no longer innocent fun machines! They're terrorist training camps! The Sun is claiming that terrorists are turning to 'PlayStation and Xbox games to keep their deadly plans secret.' Dastards!

Apparently, terrorists are using online chat channels on PlayStation and Xbox to plot terrorist attacks. The tabloid says: "Islamic extremists know cops monitor phone calls, emails and online messages, so they are turning to PlayStation and Xbox games to keep their deadly plans secret."

"Gamers can log on in groups to play against each other and - crucially - to chat in private. Once signed in to a 'lobby' using a password, plotters put on Bluetooth headsets and speak securely to conspirators on the same site."

Of course, terrorists aren't playing FIFA 12 or Ratchet & Clank. They like the war ones like Call of Duty, Halo and Medal of Honor. "It's a terrifying reality," a source told The Sun. "These people waste no time finding a secure method of chatting. They are logging into group games over the internet and discussing terror plots. Security people know about it. For millions who love these games this will be a huge shock."

The article even states there is some evidence that "would-be jihadists treat war games as training tools, a bit like a pilot might use a flight simulator".

Once these terrorists master crouching and infinite ammo, we're all absolutely doomed. Remember in the old days when terrorists did little more than eat fruit and ghosts while running around a bleak maze? Halcyon days.

    If some terrorist fucker comes at me with a ruddy joystick I will push it up his arse.

    The article even states there is some evidence that “would-be jihadists treat war games as training tools, a bit like a pilot might use a flight simulator”. Yeah.... Twiddling two analogue sticks really trains you on how to use a gun in real life doesn't it? Lol complete dickheads.

    All this says to me is that the Sun newspaper has A:Sky TV and B: at some point watched the film 'Four Lions'. I am surprised they didn't mention that 'Puffin Party' was responsible for all this nonsense. Chris morris must be snorting milk out of his nose laughing right now!

    Maybe that's why they keep blowing themselves up, they think they will re-spawn and be able to go again...

    :D Funniest thing I have ever read. So, if you blow up 7 US marines, you can control an ACR? lol
  • zax
    I meant , AC-130

    If COD4 online is real life then the terrorists can expect to die from a grenade every 10 seconds.

    It's really not a good way to spend your time.

    WOW! more bullsh**. Why dont the Sun go after the real terrorists, like my fuck*** neighbours that allow their fu**ing dogs to shit all over the place, the walkways, the communal stairs, the lifts its fuc*ing disgusting. What about the fuc*ing yobs that go round terrorising all the weaker kids on the estate? go after them.
  • Mike H.
    Yes, becasue real life battle zones, are just like in the game. Like when the Eifel tower collapses, and where you storm a building against people with high caliber rifles, wearing only a bomb disposal suit. Utter bollocks. Let them train on it, they will soon get raped.
  • Mary H.
    "LOL LMFAO HEADSHOT! lets blow up canary wharf FTW"
  • Frank P.
    Pokeyurmum would be a much better game for them to train on as they could have weird and wonderful creatures doing the fighting for them. I would bum that Pikachu all day long.
  • Torriderplum
    Are we sure it's not the Americans training on COD, they like to spray bullets in every direction
  • Mr C.
