Chris Hedges, in an astoundingly well-written piece for The Nation, hits home on many points. But perhaps most striking was the following observation:

"The coverage of war by the press has one consistent and pernicious theme -- the worship of our weapons and our military might. Retired officers, breathless reporters, somber news anchors, can barely hold back their excitement, which is perverse and -- frankly, to those who do not delight in watching us obliterate other human beings -- disgusting."
