This was written a while ago but it applies more than ever.
I have little time for anti-war sentiment; war is something humans do well and we do it naturally, and it has been brought to unthinkable levels thanks to our technology, allowing us to create a large population and enough materiel to inflict and endure incredible loss. War is a horror, but it is a fact of life, and you cannot wish it away. Wringing your hands over it does no good. You must deal with it honestly.
I am ashamed of what my country is doing. Heartily ashamed. The loss of life alone is enough to mourn for any one person, for any one society. You can weep for that, I know I have. But the subverting of remembrance is a step more horrific, and it's something I cannot bear. I can mourn the dead unashamedly. If I cry over this, I feel I must cover my face. It is ignominious and vile.
