Apparently, the monitor sets off a series of missiles that are targeted at the location of players that Treyarch has banned in Black Ops over the preceding 24 hours. Of course, the missiles aren’t real and only appear on the screen, but maybe they can get the military involved to take this program to the real-world-application phase.
