further note to self

... must remember that I am unique, with a unique and somewhat specialized perspective, and that chances are fairly high that other people will not see as obvious at all that which strikes me as bloody obvious (and without any doubt vice versa).

And now, a quote from the other war

Many of these veterans returned home deeply disturbed by the disparity between the reality of the [Iraq] war and the way it is portrayed by the US government and American media. The war the vets described is a dark and even depraved enterprise, one that bears a powerful resemblance to other misguided and brutal colonial wars and occupations, from the French occupation of Algeria to the American war in Vietnam and the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory.
