"Killing 60 people, and then blaming the killing on those same people, rather than apologizing for any deaths? This is inhuman," one Afghan official said.

 - Well, no more inhuman than statements by General Westmoreland or the six commanders-in-chief in charge of the crucifixion of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

 - And as a draftee, don't remember anything particularly human that was said by my generals or president about saving Korea from communism.

Humanity is something in short supply while wars are prosecuted. As a U.S. Army member of the allied occupation forces in Nazi Germany, got to see the inhumane devastation that is just part and parcel of war.

And humanity must perforce not be taken into consideration at all when investment bankers fund the preparation and promotion for war, for war is just business, nothing personal. While dad sold apples on the street corner in investment poor America, Rockefeller, Ford, du Pont, Morgan Jr., and most wealthy investors built up the Nazi war machine and their own fortunes.

Figure, no American should be too hard on Petraeus. He is trying to be human, like we all are, under the present circumstances of just another profitable war.
