I rember watching TV with my family and seeing US Soldiers being wounded and killed in Viet-Nam. Then I was the US Sodlier.

Then we called them 'body-bags'. Now we call them 'transfer tubes'. Camera crews are only allowed to film what the administration tells them they can film. I see plenty of footage, but never a wounded or killed American, very few Iraqies either for that matter. By comparison, any violent video game has more blood and gore.

We have been systematically desensitized by our government and media throughout the years that the horror of war is gone for us. Children grow up thinking that it will be cool to join up and go kill the enemy.
