Operation Start Up Tour

From the propoganda front...

Plans by a Christian group to send an evangelical video game to U.S. troops in Iraq were abruptly halted yesterday by the Department of Defense after ABC News inquired about the program.

Operation Start Up (OSU) Tour, an evangelical entertainment troupe that actively proselytizes among soldiers, will not be sending the "apocryphal" video game in care packages as planned, according to the department.

"Left Behind: Eternal Forces" was inspired by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins' best-selling book series about the battle of Armageddon, in which believers of Jesus Christ fight the Antichrist.

Favorite clip from the comments thread...

There are really only 4 things the soldiers in Iraq want:

1. Gatoraid for their water
2. Oreo cookies
3. "Silly String" to catch trip wires for bombs.
4. Porn.

The rest of the stuff is eventually thrown in the trash.
