A Cheap holiday in other peoples misery

We may not want to admit it, but the war in Iraq is now primarily about murder.
So writes Chris Hedges in a gruesomely absorbing five page article in Salon this week which perhaps a examines reality of the war in Iraq far away from the vile claims of impending victory that emanate repeatedly from The White House and the drum beaters.
These veterans give us a true narrative of the war -- one that exposes the vast enterprise of industrial slaughter unleashed in Iraq. They expose the lie.
Its worth your time.

And now that the Military Tribunals have convened to try the 9/11 suspects, this guy comes to mind. Either you, as a nation, stand for something or you don't. In this case it's a fairly clear distinction, the lines are hardly blurred.

What are they afraid of?
