11. I think that's why I'm less than freaked out about it
I can tell you that civilians absolutely could not handle hospital humor. The stuff we pull in hospitals to cut tension would gag slime mold.

The tragedy of this video was that overtired people mistook a camera lens flash for weapons fire. The tragedy was compounded by an apparent military coverup of the incident.

However, this is what war is about. All wars are like this, the slaughter of innocent civilians who were in the way being repackaged as collateral damage so that people back home won't be disgusted and the boys who caused the war can continue it.

What we need to be angry at is that this war was pursued based on lies and in order to further empire. What we need to be angry at is the waste of lives, the world's good will, our own treasury, and in a very large part our future on this rich man's war of convenience.

Wikileaks has done a service in obtaining and posting this video. It's high time everybody knows what war is really all about. It's not glory, it's filth, misery, blood, death, waste, and a bunch of rich old men getting richer.

Just excuse me if I don't waste any outrage on the troops.
