Taste isn't the main problem with the new JFK video game. The main problem is its reinforcement of the official "theory." This and other video games have been developed, not only for money, but to condition young minds.

If you thought the new video game inviting players to try their virtual skills at assassinating JFK was tasteless, hold on to your hat. A just-released mission in the Kuma wargame series is themed “Fallujah: Operation al-Fajr." It re-creates the recent assault on Fallujah, which may have left thousands of civilians dead.

Break for has an in depth analysis of this game. This is the seamless integration of military gaming and real military action. The two have become one. Virtually. A seamless virtual reality whose barbarity and insensitivity is puzzling to the "reality-based" community.

Wonder how long before a video game of the My Lai massacre surfaces.
