I think the writer is a dangerous lunatic. Discuss. PS...it's a really cute jujitsu move he tries to pull off by talking about how we naive Americans have to be reminded that it's a fallen world, and we don't like looking into a cave of horrors, and the solution is to accept the inevitable atrocities our soldiers will commit (his characterization, not mine.) This is beyond "destroy the village in order to save it" territory.
