We are the most violent nation in the world

(RTAmerica) This Wikileaks footage shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Elden and her driver Saeed Chmagh being shot by laughing US military men in a helicopter over a public square in Baghdad. After the shooting a minivan full of adults and children drove into the square to rescue survivors and were also attacked, killing an injuring the occupants. The US military listed the adults as "militants" and originally claimed they did not know how the deaths occurred. Now the truth comes out with this video.

(WQ) We are the only nation in history to drop nuclear bombs on human beings -- not once but three times (Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Nevada). Yes, that third one means "we" (the military, which rightly speaking isn't "us") experimented on our own servicemen and citizens without them knowing it. Human guinea pigs cannot be used without their written consent; then again, targeting innocent civilians is also a war crime for which we punish others by death. We love killing -- as long as it's plausibly deniable that we're bad. We're good. We're patriotic. We're wholesome. And we value freedom, honesty, and personal liberty above all things. You know, like our saying, "Live free or die." We love killing. Look how we've made a video game of it.
