Some War Dead Were Cremated at Facility Handling Pets

Regardless of what is said, the United States of America and its citizenry, because of their complicity, are completely insensitive to the sanctity of life: “We Torture” and “We Kill.” Instead of being outraged, as Americans we allow both without batting an eye.

America’s leadership is so unconcerned about the men and women they send into harm’s way that situations like what is described in the article, “Some War Dead Were Cremated at Facility Handling Pets,” happens.

Of course, we give obfuscatory reasoning as to why we kill and torture/we always have the perfect apology. Of course there are reasons here, and we do have an apology, also, but the fact remains it should have never happened.

Regardless of reason and no matter how rational it may sound, to me, it's completely unacceptable.

In light of all that has happened, including, but certainly not limited to, our torture policy, treatment of returning wounded veterans, the wars in and of themselves, Katrina ... and now this new revelation, Americans still question that we may have lost our moral authority -- REALLY?
