33. The term "hero" doesn't mean what it once did

If you listen to our corporate media, every American who ever set foot in Iraq or Afghanistan is a hero.

I've even heard the term applied to the millions of us who served during peacetime and never left the US.

Somebody is trying real hard to justify the bazillions of dollars we spend on these silly ass wars.

Was the late Mr Kyle a hero? IMO, no. Was he a coward? I see nothing to demonstrate that he was. He appears to have been an imperfect human being, as we all are, with a truckload of issues.
