I have, over the years, spent countless hours trolling the news. But, in light of recent events, I've become less able to tolerate it. It's beyond depressing. It's disgusting. It's disenfranchising. I haven't fully read any of those articles . . . . click-on-scan-click-off is enough to tell me that I cannot identify with this behavior [I did read this piece at Guerrilla News]. No amount of detailed analysis will prove to me that any of this was justifiable, nor that it was isolated. I am deeply chagrined. The questions that must be asked up and down the chain of command are: if you knew, why the fuck didn't you do anything about it? and if you didn't know, why the fuck not? The possibilities here are complicity and incompetence.
Now, tell me again, because I'm confused . . . . why was it unpatriotic to oppose this war? To speak against it? And, what does it mean to be a patriot? What about the moral high ground? Can someone explain to me who has the moral high ground?
