    There seems to be a blur between what is real and what’s a game in the use of drones. Targets taken out on the screen 2000 miles away from where it’s actually happening. Assassinations by CIA drones go completely unrecorded in the public. Is it really war? Are the “gamers” controlling the drones soldiers or civilians?

    Does a drone strike that occurs outside a war zone even part of battle? What is the difference in a bomb that is placed in a van that goes off and a hellfire missile that goes off in the same area if they both have 90 percent civilian casualties? How can one be called a terrorist act and not the other? Questions not asked in this country but you can be assured that they are in the minds of civilians in that country.

    I like to think internet gaming isn’t just some simple way to get kids prepared for real life killing. How much easier to just push a button, rather than look into the eyes of an enemy before skewering him with your bayonet.

    I never understood why all war isn’t considered terrorism. It sure s hell is terrifying to the people who live among it.

    I so like dark! It dark that we seem to remember through the years. Perhaps that’s why those chiller movies have stayed with us for so long. Nice Oso!
