So, one of the hot topics this week on the internet was the now infamous video of a U.S. Marine throwing a cuddly, little puppy off a cliff while it yelps in fright. Said Marine has been kicked the fucked out of the Marines and the other Marines participating in the video are under disciplinary actions now.
While this is indeed disgusting and vile, why are so many people nationwide up at arms about this? Hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent men, women, and children are being killed by American soldiers every month in Iraq. The estimated total is somewhere between 84,389 to 92,067 civilian deaths.
Can we, as a populous, not wrap our heads around the massive statistics of death coming out of Iraq? The little boys and girls getting their faces blown off... do we really need to see a graphic video of that to get us upset?
I mean, the power is with us. We can all get upset about a dead puppy and we can light the internet on fire about animal cruelty.
How's about lighting the internet on fire about the gigantic clusterfuck of death going on the Middle East. You know? The War? The one with all our names attached to it?
