Good Clean Fun

George W. Bush’s brutalization of our children goes on — and on and on. This is from Alternet:

Iraqi families were routinely fired upon for getting too close to check points, including an incident where an unarmed father driving a car was decapitated by a 50-caliber machine gun in front of his small son, although by then, Mejia notes, “this sort of killing of civilians had long ceased to arouse much interest or even comment.”

Soldiers shot holes into cans of gasoline being sold alongside the road and then tossed incendiary grenades into the pools to set them ablaze. “It’s fun to shoot shit up,” a soldier said. Some open fire on small children throwing rocks. And when improvised explosive devices go off the troops fire wildly into densely populated neighborhoods, leaving behind innocent victims who become, in the callous language of war, “collateral damage.”

Seems like any compassion they might have is being taught right out of them. How can they do that to other people? Once they learn it there, they can come back and feel it's okay to do the same, here.
No wonder the Iraqis are so unsettled. That's how enemies are created. The Iraqis that were happy to have the military involved, way back when it started, probably have died or have had second thoughts.
