Army's Shopping Mall Game Center Shut Down By Protests

• David Swanson via

The Army Experience Center, an amusement hall built in a Philadelphia area shopping mall to make killing and dying look like fun to kids, has been the focus of repeated protests and criticism. This past weekend hundreds again protested at the AEC, and police arrested six protesters and one journalist. The journalist was not with the protesters, and was picked out of a crowd, apparently because of her professional camera.

Days prior to this long-planned and publicly announced protest, the Army announced that it would probably be closing the AEC and not opening others in other shopping malls, as had been planned. The reason? Are you ready to hear this? Wait for it ...

The Army doesn't need any more recruits, because the bad economy has driven up recruitment significantly.
