35. Person of the Year was supposed to be the biggest newsmaker
a group of soldiers following orders is news, but not the true news. Look behind the machine and see who is plugging it in.

Maybe we should have a Most Corrupt Individual of the year?

Ask the soldiers, and a truthful answer would be that they are not happy being part of the machine that invades countries without immediate provocation and kills thousands of civilians.
