The sickening news of the American army's excesses in Iraq only echos what former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara in his book "the Fogs of War" had darkly opined. He had said that had the truth been known, America would also have been indicted for war crimes.
So, Iraq is not anything new and is only a continuing tradition.
My question is, is any army innocent of excesses in war?
I would just like to point out:
If this army were PRIVATELY RUN, there would be the biggest media frenzy in the world over these leaks, and the company would have lost BILLIONS.
But, because it's publicly owned, through a government granted monopoly, it'll still be in business, it'll still commit war crimes, and it will likely have increased funding next year.
Wake up America: privatization makes sense.
