JERRY POURNELLE ON PISSGATE: “The Marines acted without thinking of the consequences and must be made to realize that; but I have always believed that far more serious acts take place in every combat action. War is Hell. A rational army would run away. Those men did not run away, and I’d far rather have troops who urinate on the enemy than troops who surrender to get their throats cut while in captivity. And I hope they had bacon for breakfast that morning. I’m told they did. I don’t appall as easily as many, I suppose.”

There’s a moral-poseur bubble going on at the moment. It’ll be interesting when it pops.
