Delegates at the 31st International Conference of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Red Crescent raised the concerns over the potential “International Humanitarian Law” violations – which can constitute war crimes - during a workshop in Geneva.

So there, you have it, this organization is more concern with virtual life and with real life. Shouldn't they be out there, saving lives or whatever their mission is?

War crimes my friends, when you blow up a zombie's head in a video game. But going into war without the consent of the congress isn't?? Interesting logic, to say the less.

WOW!!! Really...... yea, I'm such a murderous bastard for playing a game once in a while where I kill fake people, animals, creatures, etc... Some how I dont think my friends and the dog and the cat would agree with that. No one should be donating anything to the red cross, They pocket most of that money anyways.
