Chilling corollary b/t our 'reality' and Ender's Game, this

Lt Col Bruce Black (US drone pilot who flies predator missions into Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, speaking of the emotional detachment after engaging in 'combat' through a virtual Predator Drone interface): "The disconnection is astounding ... it's amazing."

"Astounding?" "Amazing?" I'd call it a cynical, sickening and dehumanizing aspect of 'modern warfare'.

Thanks for the link, Manystrom.
