    Waking From My Moral Coma
    By William Rivers Pitt
    Truthout | Op-Ed

    Wednesday 13 March 2013

    I've been having trouble with mirrors lately. When I look these days, I see a bastard staring back, a stranger, a guy who should be ashamed of himself.

    He is.

    A long, long time ago, I wrote this: "America is an idea, a dream. You can take away our cities, our roads, our crops, our armies, you can take all of that away, and the idea that is America will still be there, as pure and great as anything conceived by the human mind."

    I still believe that, and therein lies the problem. I am a sucker for that dream, that idea, and for the last few years I allowed it to seduce me.

    Hunter S. Thompson had Richard Nixon as his white whale, and while I would never in Hell think to compare myself to The Doctor, we share a similar experience, insofar as George W. Bush was my white whale. Deep in the heart of those Nixon years, Thompson lamented about "what a fantastic monument to all the best instincts of the human race this country might have been, if we could have kept it out of the hands of greedy little hustlers like Richard Nixon." So it was, for me, with Bush.

    (snip)

    I am finished with the moral geometry that says this is better than that, which makes this good. This is not good; this is, in fact, intolerable. Allowing the perpetrators of war crimes - widely televised ones at that - to retain their good name and go on Sunday talk shows as if they had anything to offer besides their ideology of murder and carnage is intolerable. Entertaining the idea that the billions we spend preparing for war cannot be touched, and so the elderly and the infirm and the young and the weak and the voiceless must pay the freight instead, is intolerable.

    The pornography of America's global killing spree is intolerable, and, by the by, I am sick of hearing about drones. A child killed by a Hellfire missile that was fired from a drone is exactly, precisely as dead as a child killed by a Hellfire missile fired from an Apache attack helicopter, precisely as dead as a child killed by a smart bomb, precisely as dead as a child killed by a sniper, precisely as dead as a child killed by a land mine, or by a cruise missile, or by any of the myriad other ways instant death is dealt by this hyper-weaponized nation of ours.

    Exactly, precisely as God damned dead, and the blood is on our hands regardless of the means used to do the killing. The issue is not the drones. The issue is our hard, black hearts, and the grim fact that the debate in this country right now is not about whether the killing is wrong, but about the most morally acceptable way of going about that killing. Drones are bad, but snipers are better, because you don't hear the buzzing sound in the sky before your lights go out forever. Or something.

    It is the killing, it is the permanent war, it is our deranged national priorities. It is the system we live under which requires the serial deaths of all those innocents to maintain our economic health that should appall us. We sup upon the blood and bonemeal that is the byproduct of the idea that is America, and we sleep. And we sleep.

    The rest: http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/15...-my-moral-coma

    Yay! Pitt is back!!! Reads like the same old BS to me. I think he needs to write another book/pamphlet with Scott Ritter too!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Ummm, don't you have to have morals in the first place before going into a "moral coma"? The Pittstain, along with the rest of the DUmbasses, have no morals, have never had any morals nor will they ever have any morals in the future.

    The DUmmies are fighting a civil war over what a shit-sack the Preezy turned out to be. But look how Pittiful tiptoes around the fact that his Messiah is an extra-judicial killa. The downside is what's happening to the country under Obamao and the Dims. The fact that over 50% of the voters are in the something for nothing crowd is very worrysome. I fear that the Dims have managed to pander their way to a permanent majority.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    This exactly summarizes my feelings about U.S. foreign policy. It is down right evil. It makes me ashamed. Fuckers do it in my name. Every congress and administration since Reagan is guilty (and the ones before Reagan are too-- the guilt just morphs a little so it needs it's own slightly different colored moral stain).
