The ACLU has taken exception with the recruiting tactics of the United States Army, especially the use of the game America's Army, saying that the game encourages kids below the age of 18 to want to join the military before they reach an age of reasonable consent.

The game, they feel, violates the U.N. protocol which requires countries to shield those under 18 from military recruitment, encouraging young kids to want to go to war, the way they play it in the game. Now, we think that, just as always, any kid who has a difficult time discerning what they see on a game from reality deserves what they can get, even if that means a trip to Iraq.
