The Butchers’ Children

~

Rolling Stone Magazine recently published a story on young soldiers trophy hunting for humans in Afghanistan.

the dutiful response is outrage and disbelief at this historically consistent combat stress behaviour.

soon, someone will score airtime with a tearful plea that intimidation and torture do not work.

but one look in any woman’s purse will show that intimidation and torture do work.

the story itself contains nothing about fixing a broken war policy that kills innocents.  if it did, there would be, at the very least, congressional contact numbers or form protest letters to sign at the end of the article.

it’s not the story that changes, it’s the audience.

this post is pointlessly dedicated to Gul Mudin and Jeremy Morlock, the two victims.
