Teens Going To War: Are Cartoons the Cause?



Teens Going To War: Are Cartoons the Cause?
November 21, 2011
NEW YORK - It’s tough to keep track of your children, and monitoring their viewing experiences can seem impossible. But if you’re afraid your teens may be going to war because of it, then you may have to take it seriously. The consequences could be very dire.

The culprit seems innocuous enough. It’s a colorful, happy show. However, under the jokes lies a problem. The show is Axis Powers Hetalia, a show that makes light of cultural stereotypes, and satirizes the tragedies of World War 2, with the countries being represented by animated characters.
Teens say they’d be willing to die for their favorite characters, influenced by the relationships they have within the show. “If going towar means America and Russia will get together, then it’s worth it,” remarked a fan. She enlisted in the army, hoping to support her fandom. Struggling through boot camp, she presses on anyway.

“People join the armed forces for many reasons,” Sgt. John Madison, an army recruiter in Buffalo said, when asked about the subject. “But I must admit, going to war for cartoons is a new one. I only hope they know what they’re getting into. We’re very serious about this, and it may be more than some of these kids can handle.”
Cartoons and anime may all be in good fun, but when your teens are risking for lives for it, is it really worth it? Parents need to talk to their children, and make sure they know the difference between fantasy and reality. Because otherwise, it could mean the difference between life and death.Visit FOX News online for more info. 

Ugh.Really, fox news? Really?What kind of bullshit is this?
