20. Extremely important point.

Thank you for that.

War is sanitized in so many ways ....from the manner in which people can kill with drones, to the way in which it is reported.

I think that this is connected to the lack of focus the general public has, for example, on the very real needs that veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq have, and which too frequently are not being met. The sanitized coverage allows for shitheads on the rabid-right to blame President Obama for something that really isn't his doing. (There are many examples of the VA doing outstanding work, and the shitheads would never think of crediting President Obama for those.)
