Mind-Bending Irony

I note the mind bending irony of the USA sanctioning and rewarding the killing of as many as one can in combat while many Americans, some in high places, express moral outrage regarding a few Marines urinating on the remains of the day.

What is even more ironic is the fact that those that issued the orders to invade and kill – at times based upon false assumptions – were given a free pass: “Move on.”

The lowly grunts who urinated on the mission-accomplished engender disgustingly hypocritical outrage, to the point that Sec. of State Clinton had to comment and promise an investigation. – Daniel Seidenberg, US Army, Ret.
