image for Video Games blamed for Increase in Wars.

An increase in the number of Wars in the last decade is being blamed on the rise of evil video games that glamorise genocide, a new report suggests. The War Reduction Committee cites recent games like Battlefield 1942 and Command and Conquer Generals in a recent report.

A spokesman said:

"It is worrying what effect these games could have on the minds of our leaders, and there is a direct correlation between the increased sales of these games and the number of wars across the world."

The situation reached crisis point a few weeks ago when George Bush invaded Iraq just months after the release of Conflict Desert Storm, a war game set in during the first Gulf War. President Bush was seen exciting the Washington branch of Electronics Boutique with a copy of the game just weeks before the invasion of Iraq.

Tony Blair, is claimed to have been fiercely addicted to Battlefield 1942, whilst Vladamir Putin, the Russian Premier is said to indulge in week long sessions of the Age of Empires, each of these rulers is well known for making war with other countries for no real reason.

When told about this report former Prime Minister John Major said "This is very worrying."
