Prince Harry Says Taking Lives Is Like Playing Video Games

01.22.13 10:01 PM

While guns continue to be vilified by the Presidential Administration and some lawmakers as the sole benefactor in killings, Prince Harry of Wales said something in a BBC interview that should give pause to those who claim violent video games do not affect a personís psychological state.

There has been little focus by lawmakers or the mainstream media on the possibility that the rash of mass killings carried out by males in their 20s in recent years could be a byproduct of recreational activities. But in a recent interview, the British prince unwittingly offered a shining example of why a look beyond the guns involved in gun violence is needed as he compared the horrors of war to playing video games.

Harry, who co-piloted an Apache helicopter during a 20-week tour in Afghanistan, told the BBC that taking the lives of insurgents was no different than kicking back on the couch and playing video games.

ďItís a joy for me because Iím one of those people who loves playing PlayStation and Xbox,” the 28-year-old said. “So with my thumbs I like to think Iím probably quite useful.”

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid responded to the Princeís comparing killing in war to playing games: ďTo describe the war in Afghanistan as a game demeans anyone–especially a prince, who is supposed to be made of better things.Ē

Mujahid continued: ďIt shows the lack of understanding, of knowledge. It shows they are unfamiliar with the situation and shows why they are losing. … Itís not a game. Itís very, very real.”
