Personally, despite what may or may not have been the intentions of the current lapdog press agencies, at least the end result is that they are doing
their job. The more openness the better. The more openness with information, the more - perhaps (one can dream) - the more likelihood that people will
become disgusted with this whole twisted (mis-)adventure in patriotic ego-stroking (not just Afghanistan).
I say, let it all out - not just the soft, cushy, human-interest fluff about veterans with mental health problems, or who can't find work (probably
because of the mental health problems) or who have high suicide rates (most definitely because of the mental health problems) or who beat their
spouses or children or become alcoholics or pill-heads or heroin addicts...
Let out all the corpse-mutilation and village massacres and "Collateral Murder" and "Downing Street Memos" and Secret Service Sex Scandals and
Pay-to-Play Political Parties and all the other deprived, immoral, unthinking, willful ignorance that this country has to offer...let it all out in
the sunshine and then maybe the citizenry will be forced to show some recognizable compassion...anything outside of their disgusting little
masturbatory bubbles where they watch other people's "realities" and think everything's just fine.
