America’s Army in the NY Times

February 21st, 2005 by Crusader

The New York Times ran an article (registration required) last week concerning the US Department of Defense-funded first-person shooter America’s Army, which relates how the developers undergo Army field training to help facilitate the game’s “realism”:

Aside from the atmospherics and surrogate soldiering, the developers came away with a lot of concrete information. Toward the end of the summer they hope to release a module called Special Forces: Overmatch, which will allow gameplay as a member of the Green Berets. Many of the vehicles they rode and weapons they fired will appear in the game.

    In America; the people are not civil and not militia.

    United States (UNITED STATES CODE Title 28, Section 3002, clause 15(a) “a Federal corporation”) on the other hand, is an investor of a military complex corporation beknownst “UNITED STATES Army”, and coerces “people” to join-up. The Constitution exlicitly prohibits conscription, yet who ever said you couldn’t be forced to volunteer at threat of being slandered and thrown in “Federal” prison. Prison is not allowed by the Constitution. It is writting in the Constitution, that army is only to be raised for preventing invasion. For purposes of fraud, people are forced to volunteer subscription to an “army” not defined in the Constitution: thus there is UNITED STATES Army, and its similar alphabet gangs.
