    Why Are We So Blind to the True Horrors of War? | World | AlterNet

    :rolleyes: I don't think in some cases that it is blindness,as such, that keeps us from learning the truth of the War, is that it is fear, of being proven right, about what is actually happening, and denial of the facts and cause.:( and why?

    Chris Hedges right?

    He was on Gary Null's show today.

    Are you familiar?

    Because we haven't had a real war fought on our soil in well over a century?

    Because only a very small percentage of our population has actually been to war?

    And we use drones...some one sits at a computer all day bombing the people we are at "war" with and then goes home to their families for a good old fashioned double cheese burger.

    :doubt: No!!!! doubt!!!! I am not blind to the horrors of war, not by a long shot. I have had my dose of a Bloodshed myself in Vietnam. You are right tho, these folks know nothing about the true meaning of war, and have never been there or done that, in their whole sick assed lives, but they think they do, by pushing a few computer keys and that's their idea of war.
