Michael Ware, Former CNN War Correspondent, Speaks Out On Alleged War Crime CNN Refused To Air

Nobody cares about the horrors of war, Mr. Ware. It’s why the American war machine has been able to rumble on year after year. Politicians, pundits, or the average citizen don’t want to hear how terrifying it is to be in war. All they want to hear are that we are winning and that some casualties are inevitable.

By the way, this kind of stuff is ten times more newsworthy than the whole debacle concerning General Stanley McChrystal a few months ago. That was basically one general saying stuff he shouldn’t have. What Ware will be exposing Americans to here are things Americans ought to know, because parents are sending their children to war without fully knowing what it is they do there.

The roots of this problem goes back to the ignorance of the masses. It is absolutely appalling how much some people in America (militaristic ideologues, religious fanatics, big business, etc) have gotten away with. People need to wake up.
