War is the worst and most horrific behavior of humanity. This game show celebrates the strategies, instruments and effects of war. The result is desensitization and dehumanization. I'd rather stay humane. Please cancel this morally corrupt perpetration and keep its memory as one of the sign posts of television gone beyond acceptability, taste and restraint. Shameful garbage. A sign of the times.
Place yourself as an innocent citizen of an invaded country. BRRRRRRRROOOM. In drive the tanks, the transport vehicles, the guns, the planes, the helicopters, the big guns, the little guns, the Shock and Awe of potent weapons of death and destruction. The people, men and women, driving that gear and wielding those weapons are enjoying themselves as they compete to be the best marksmen, the creators of the biggest booms and explosions. Move in! Move out! Let's go! G.I. Joe! KAPOW. There go your children. PiwPiwPiw! Pick off your neighbors. BOOM! Your house goes flying into the air in flaming pieces. It's the Americans! And they LIKE IT! And you've figured out that they've gone insane and inhumane. How can you respond to these acts of jovial injustice, contestant murder, compensated destruction and hijinks horror?
Thanks 'Stars Earn Stripes' for helping to inspire another generation of retribution and devolved humanity. Let's do better.
