So, it's a doll house.

Yep, a dollhouse, where civilians are hauled out into the street and killed or taken to a makeshift jail so their home is inhabited by men in camo. Do they issue the WMD with it? (It's a "Make-believe" situation for Shrub.)
Won't be on our kids' list.

How sad that they make this kind of toys
I tried to look at the "antidote" toy that it's mentioned there but is not available anymore... wonder what was it.

How terrible!!

My son has no idea what a weapon is, and I will try to keep it that way as long as possible!!

Not going to be on Noahs wishlist, thats for sure....

If you google "World Peace Keepers Battle Station" you'll come up with some hits....the second hit shows a picture of the so-called "antidote" toy....

Warning--the "Battle Station" part of the title is more relevant (IMO) than the "Peace Keepers" part.

Heck, I'll make it easier for you....here's a link:

Ugh, this is the sort of thing that makes me want to crawl right off the planet. Isn't there a nice planet somewhere that hasn't been irreparably screwed up?

That's the antidote????
I really thought that it was an ambulance or a group of unarmed peacekeepers ... I also want to live in another planet some times.
