Chew Compassion

I don't get enthusiastic when i receive emails with pictures or movies of airplanes, helicopters, guns or soldiers in action. Plane crashes, aircraft interceptions, dismembered terrorists - what's the deal with you, people? It's not that exciting, people (good and bad) die there, unbelievably huge money is spent on those things. And it's not even pretty - the fake explosions and crashes in Hollywood movies look far better, and they don't get me that excited either.

In principle, there's just nothing particularly good about army, any army - army is nothing more that an unfortunate necessity sometimes, so why make so much fuss about it? I consider it idolatry.
