Cuba says Call of Duty is repulsive...well duh

Having played earlier versions of Call of Duty, I can concur that is American jingoism gone wild.

This newest version does cross the line. Castro is a world leader, but the Americans just can't accept that, so we get stupid story lines like this.

If Castro lives to be 110 and dies quietly in his bed, the Americans will still claim they killed him.

Cuba has condemned the release of a new video game in which United States special forces try to kill a young Fidel Castro.

State-run media said the game, Call of Duty: Black Ops, attempted to legitimise murder and assassination in the name of entertainment.

The Cubadebate website said it would also turn American children into sociopaths.

It is expected to be one of the biggest selling video games of the year

The BBC correspondent in Havana, Michael Voss, says Cubadebate takes a dig at all the failed real life attempts to kill Cuba's former president.

The website says that the US government is trying to achieve through virtual reality what it had not been able to do in real life during Mr Castro's 50 years in power.
