    They have to fill the rag up with something, otherwise they’d have to cover the collapse of the whole ramshackle edifice of the Blue Social Model in general (and Eurosocialism in particular) in excruciating detail.

    I miss the days when Newsweek had worthwhile news, and Time really reported on the times. I like the Economist well enough, but couldn’t we manage to put together something like that in America?

    Peeing on a dead combatant a war crime? GMAB!

    On the other hand, many Americans (i) have been living in a safe cocoon (ii) are woefully under-educated, especially in the classics. Maybe many do have to be told water is wet…

    If those reporters are this upset over the soldiers peeing on the dead guys, just wait until they find out that they’re the ones that killed ’em in the first place! You can wash pee off. You can’t wash dead off. Killing someone is the zenith of dis.

    I’ve not been to war in an arab country myself, so I might just be whistling Dixie here, but I’m gonna predict that a majority of Taliban would answer “being killed” when choosing between that and being peed on, as far as which they think is the worst.
