Inspiring

This is the story of a man who guarded - perhaps still guards! - his right to carry weapons despite what the government had to say about it.

I suppose I should mention that it's M. Bouffant's fault that I'm pissy right now.

Not sure I want to say what I'm inspired to do.

Make a better world for all, I s'pose.

It's a fucked up world and no mistake.

In related news Wikipedia tells me
Zedediah "Zed" Owens is a laconic, goateed product designer who is frequently worried that he may be over the hill. It has been revealed that he is a former Special Operations sniper, who has since been recalled back to duty in Iraq, where, as one strip revealed, he is now actively hunting insurgents as a sniper once again
Hot Shit huh?

Those Juba videos are so sad to see, just cold slaughter, one butt-scratching bored kid after another popped to the ground. I suppose if American snipers attach videocameras to their rifles it's no different.

Americans are just plain weird. What is it in our collective makeup that makes us worship heroes if they are Americans while loathing the evildoers who are not, even when they do EXACTLY THE SAME THINGS.

Soldiers fight. Snipers kill. We went to their country - how is it we can begrudge them the right to fight us? Who is the hero and who is the villian? Is it Juba, or is it Michael Monsoor.

Or maybe it's a little harder than that. Maybe you can't just paint this picture with two colors. Maybe soldiers are all a little bit murderer, and a little bit saint. Maybe when you've spent time under fire, when you've laid that sight on a human and squeezed the trigger, when you've had all night to consider the dead piled in front of your hole, you don't think in those terms anymore...

Sure doesn't apply just to soldiers. Those are just the guys unlucky enough to test our moral limits for us while we pretend to sinlessness.

Hope the job hunt's going okay.
