    That must have been the happiest day of Jack’s pathetic life. I’m amazed he hasn’t gloated yet.

    Yyyyyyyyyeah, the thing is, those are things I support, or second, as it is said. I was simply voicing my support. A LoZ game pitting Link against the Taliban has OVER 9000 percent of my support. Don’t like it? There’s the door.

    *_* Where do I start..? Okay, how is you posting “SECONDED” about 5 times contributing to the discussion?

    Now, judging from your time spent on the forums, you aren’t the sharpest poster on GP, but FUCKING HELL.

  5. Shadow D. Darkman says:

    Do you? No? Then don’t post crap like that.

    Those guys are truly in it for the money and power, they just use the mind-messing religious ideology to get poor, weak-minded people to be their lackeys. Why would a leader sacrifice his own work and legacy to do dirty work?

    belive me, when religion’s involved people can do great good, or great evil.  though if you said religious terrorism it would be fairer than islamic terrorism. 

  9. Chaltab says:

    I don’t recall the IRA having a thing against free expresion of ideas. Obviously we hate all terorrists, but THIS is why Islamic terrorism is especially difficult to make ground against–because it is rooted in a totalitarian mind-**** ideology instead of the more normal motivations for terrorism like money or independence.

    Agreed… but we’ll need to give Link some sniper support…

    Don’t worry, they were just acting out video game violence.

    Remember kiddies, video games cause all violence, all historical wars, erectile dysfunction, stroke, HIV, sonic gonorhea, and extreme legislator stupidity.

    Well, they do hate all forms of civilization past the stoneage so it was only a matter of time before they pulled this one.

    "Furniture and goods worth thousands of rupees were destroyed…"

    Huh, same currency used in the Legend of Zelda series.  Hmm…

    You know, Link could fight the Taliban in the next game.  That would shake up the series a bit.

  21. DavCube says:

    The sad thing is, he WOULD do that. He already said posters here should be legally executed, asking terrorists to do the job isn’t that much more deranged.

    But then again, this would shut down the ‘simulators that terrorists train on’ retoric as well…

  22. hellfire7885 says:

    I wonder how long before JT praises them and says this needs to happen in the US


    He does endorse terrorism after all

  23. Derovius says:

     Atleast these people admit to their deeds, the US has killed 100,000 people (either directly, or by proxy) since they invaded Iraq, and still try and claim they are doing "good". These terrorists are the only ones who don’t seem to be in denial.

  24. Kincyr says:

    Wikipedia had info of this hatred of videogames since before JT tried to equate us with them

    I really should keep track of the things I call that turn out to be true, I lost count several times

  25. PHX Corp says:

    Should we put in the Politicians and personalities: game stores, gamers that are victims of Islamic Terrorism

    It says that It’s was a mater of time before the Islamic terrorists got thier sorry butts on the hall of shame
