The old man was career military, Air Force, pilot, for 24 or so of the prime years of his life. He went in the Army Air Forces during Deuce with the burning hard-on to be a fighter pilot, and instead spent the war years stateside as an aerial gunnery instructor for B-17 and B-24 bombers.

On the other side stands a mass of increasingly bitter people whose alienation, desperation and rage fuel emotionally driven and incoherent political agendas. It is a recipe for fascism.

“The abused are only Iraqis”, a US General to General Antonio Taguba.
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the latest, vast cache of documents from Wikileaks, is that anyone was surprised at the revelations. For Iraqis, Afghans and the region, and Iraq and Afghanistan watchers across the globe, countless millions of words have been written and eye witness reports sent since day one of the highly questionable legality of the Afghan invasion the absolute illegality of that of Iraq.
