Got his gun – lost his legs, arms, and penis

“‘Contrary to common opinion in the United States, war is not inevitable.  Nor has it always been with us.  War is a human invention — an organized, deliberate action of an anti-social kind — and in the long span of human life on Earth, a fairly recent one.  For more than 99 percent of the time that humans have lived on this planet, most of them have never made war.  Many languages don’t even have a word for it.  Turn off CNN and read anthropology.  You’ll see.

‘What’s more, war is obsolete.  Most nations don’t make war anymore, except when coerced by the United States to join some spurious ‘coalition.’  The earth is so small, and our time here so short.  No other nation on the planet makes war as often, as long, as forcefully, as expensively, as destructively, as wastefully, as senselessly, or as unsuccessfully as the United States.  No other nation makes war its business.'”
