This piece from the Telegraph is extremely depressing. It’s not as if most of us don’t already know it, but it’s still sad to see it spelled out this way. I applaud the guy for standing up for what he believes, and doing his small part to stem the multi-generational social damage we’re doing. While there’s some guilt on the part of US soldiers and commanders, most of them are performing honorably. I think it’s important to realize that US soldiers themselves are also victims – as their leadership has failed them all the way to the top.
