It's not a new query,but suddenly particularly relevant: Why has a society capable of such fantastic technological advances never moved beyond Neanderthal methods of solving problems?

Clubs have been replaced by daisy cutters, for sure... but we have not advanced a centimetr from the primitive belief that "might makes right" After the hubris of Bush's Inaugural Speech, open discussion about the morality of war and its horrific weaponry is really, really vital.

But we're not going to have that dialogue. We no longer even discuss the dubious morality of the invasion of Iraq....seems we're simply looking for the best rationale to justify the whole fiasco. Here's a take on the whole concept, that rings a familiar bell: War is hell, but we've been systematically desensitized to its depravity'

Kind of makes sense in a world where nothing else does....

"As a nation, we are the greatest killing machine the world has ever known. Our unsurpassed killing technology has been sold to the American public as a symbol of pride and superiority. Killing an enemy, real or conceived, is sold to Americans as a positive experience. Through the auspices of a media well versed in hype and promotion, a relentless campaign has been waged in this country to make us comfortable with the killing game that is war.

In the three years since the media helped George Bush & PNAC unleash his invasion on Iraq, half the nation seems to have no problem with the moral questions that are implicit in waging a war for no clear reason. In fact, they seem to have no problem at all with the continuing carnage. On the contrary, there is still an inexplicable pride in watching America at War as staged on the nightly news. One has to wonder if half the nation has any clue at all that killing for an unjustifiable reason is murder."


Media, Murder and American Morality!
