Window Into Insanity

Our mainstream media covers the war while generally shielding us from the reality of war. The truth is that most of us don't want to know. Testimony last Saturday by Marine Corporal Saul Lopezromo in the murder trial of Corporal Trent Thomas, which received fairly broad coverage, opened a small window into the brutality and insanity of war.

Lopezromo didn't hold back, and pretty much summed things up while testifying about their orders to "crank up the violence level" and the practice of dead-checking.
"If somebody is worth shooting once, they're worth shooting twice."
This is hands down winner of quote of the day for July 14th, 2007 and should be a finalist for quote of the year.
