As I've said before, the army has a culture problem the reflects on the rest of the world

Shooting people? Yes sir, it's a hell of a hoot - World -

An American Lieutenant has said the shooting people in Iraq "it's a hell of a hoot". This is not the first time I've reported on such instances. It is this kind of attitude that leads to a kind of culture that says that the solution to the world's conflicts is to blow your enemies up. Sure they think killing lots of terrorists will end up killing terrorism. What would you say if they said the same thing. Killing all the imperialists will rid imperialism. I can see all you right-wing loonies standing up right now and saying that you will never stop fighting, that if they killed more of you, they you'd get real pissed and there'd be more fighting. Duh, that's what happening. You kill one, you piss off the whole of the Arab world and now there is this culture of conflict between the two sides of the world. No leader is looking to resolve problems, just blow people up that are different on both sides of the debate.
