    in Iraq."

    Given the nature of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, to declare Kyle or anyone else knows who the "bad guys" are vs the "good guys" is very naive.  The people who live there have good reasons to consider us the "bad guys."  And, of course, one person's idea of a "bad guy" could be quite different from another's.

    Otherwise, your post makes sense.

    •  Good point. I was going with the standard story (3+ / 0-)

      here and my guess is that a sniper would be more likely to hit people who are a real threat than say a drone controlled by someone using a joy stick in washington but you are so right about the fog of war. I hope our species will someday get over it's need for so much intragroup carnage.
