Quote of the Day

“If bomber crew members had had to turn a flamethrower on each one of these seventy thousand women and children or, worse yet, slit each of their throats, the awfulness and trauma inherent in the act would have been of such a magnitude that it simply would not have happened. But when it is done from thousands of feet in the air, where the screams cannot be heard and the burning bodies cannot be seen, it is easy.”
— Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, On Killing
