I’ve been seeing a lot of ads lately for a videogame called Desert Storm: Conflict. Although it putatively is a simulation of the 1990 Gulf War, is it clearly intended as an anticipation of the upcoming Gulf War, Episode II. Cashing in on war fever with a videogame? There’s something about this that strikes me as wrong, wrong, wrong. And weird.

  1. Did you see the recent story on the ABC evening news about the bombed-out dollhouse and other war toys? There was some really scary stuff, targeted at kids aged *3* and up!!!
