That is a valid point

although I'm sure you can see the reason for all the down votes. I didn’t down vote you. :)

During a valid conflict (if there can be one of those), the military must follow distasteful and confusing orders sometimes.

There is an historical example of what you suggest, Vietnam.

The nitty gritty of war hasn’t been seen on TV since. They did bath us in the tech of it, but not the guts.

If the MSM actually showed things like Manning’s cables and drone strikes on a daily basis, the war would have been over long ago, whether the public outcry was against the soldiers themselves or their leaders, where it should be squarely placed, IMO.

Just open the box and see
