This was pretty much my reaction when I saw the Israeli Defense Force’s blog last night.
Unbelievable: The IDF Has Gamified Its War Blog

Thanks for sharing this. I just wrote a rebuttal on why there is NOTHING wrong with IDF Gamifying War. Games MIMIC War. Not the other way around. Plus, when “our enemy” Bin Laden died, it was pretty “glorified” with 2000 tweets every second. And we were just under attack ONCE. War is harsh and adding incentives for people to participate is the least insidious thing people can do, assuming they are already in a war and being attacked often…
