Terrorism. It could be all around you. It could be in the air you breathe, the food you eat, the loved one you kiss goodnight and even the MMO you play. Yes, friends, according to a recent presentation by Dr. Dwight Toavs, professor at the Pentagon's National Defense University, virtual worlds could easily hide a real terrorist plot. And to illustrate his point, Toavs supplied this example screen from World of Warcraft. It looks innocent enough, just documenting a good old dragon fire spell on the south gates of the Keep. Unless...wait...what could they really be referring to?

Holy crap! It's The White House! Never mind that the "dragon fire" is a spell from Everquest. Mount the griffins and arm the bunker busters! And somebody ask Mommy for $14 because my WoW subscription just ran out!! [Danger Room]

You know the terrorist are just laughing their asses off at crap like this. Do they really think that people would do that? And WHY would they do that? Couldn't they just talk to each other about the plan that they make? Why would they go onto a computer game to do it? And then again, why an MMO game? They could do it on Xbox Live just as easily. Whoever is coming up with this shit deserves a nice bitch slap.
