UK General Praises "Playstation Generation"

General Sir Richard Dannatt told an audience of business leaders that the "Playstation generation" was more than a match for what is required for combat in Afghanistan.

"There was a time when commentators and some more experienced members of the Army expressed concern as to whether the 'PlayStation generation' were up to dealing with the gritty bloody conflict that is routine business in southern Afghanistan and Iraq.
"Well, I'm pleased to say that they are. Our young soldiers, drawn from across British society, are more than a match for what is required of them and I salute every one of them."

Well there you go, but what about the Wii and 360 generaiton?

this isnt gaming news, purely a publicity stunt. This dude is just trying to attract more mindless recruits to Britains ailing armed forces to ship off to fight for someone else's oil craving.

That is so wrong. So basically, the guy is saying that video games have made the youth into killing machines, perfect for the army?

No that's not what he's saying. He was saying there was concern among commentators and Army brass that the Playstation Generation (i.e. this video game playing generation) were not cut out for the military, War, etc. Essentially he was stating there was worry that this generation was a bunch of pansies who couldn't handle the war.

And he goes on to state the worries and concerns were unfounded.

Reading comprehension FTL!
