The Taliban are using computer games to train their 'soldiers' in the art of war.
It was alleged that PC flight simulator games were used to train the would be pilots who attacked the World Trade Center in New York, so it was no surprise when military intelligence reported this latest battleground development.
However, the Taliban have seemingly made a tactical error in their choice of games.
Mustaffa al Hammed Hatbar, Taliban general, told us "it's not our doing. It's the suppliers, they screwed the order up, we paid for sixteen copies of 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II', ten copies of 'Army of Two' and a handful of 'Battlefield Bad Company'."
"What they sent us was a stack of 'Lips: Number One Hits' karaoke game, a pile of 'Rockband: Beatles Edition' and 'Project Gotham 3' car racing, I mean that's not even the latest one!" he continued angrily.
"We didn't read the smallprint, and we now discover the games are all non-refundable!" he said, "it's almost terrorism, this!"
Rather than the Taliban honing their skills in the art of war they are now more prepared to sing harmonies at our boys, whilst waving a tiny plastic Rickenbacker 325 controller.
This reporter is not sure which is worse.
More as we regurgitate it.
