  •  What about... (none)
    when the Pentagon allows for a heroic fantasy of the action, such as was originally the case in Tillmans death, or when they let it run even further in the case of Pvt. Jessica Lynch?

    I know where you're comming from and agree with it in concept, but there is far too much suppression of the ugly truth of war.

    I too think only a dumbass would believe Tillman was fragged. You have to feel bad for the soldier(s) who made that mistake.  No way something like that doesn't haunt you the rest of your life, they may be a second casualty in many ways.

    And even though Jessica Lynch never fired a shot at the enemy (her gun jammed) she was a soldier serving her country, suffered being taken prisoner, and deserves to be reguarded with honor.

    Tillman was a hero who died in combat.  Full stop.

    The most important thing about life is to stay amused by it.
