|Gen. Mark Hertling:|
I'm wearing the glasses
so that you cannot tell
that my head is hollow.
Speaking today to the Defense Writers Group, Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, the commander of the US 7th Army said he believes it is too early to tell whether the multi-year occupation of Iraq “created an ally” in the new Iraqi government.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen in Iraq,” Hertling said, “I’m hopeful for increasing positive signs.” He went on to complain that America is “not feeling particularly appreciated” for the eight year occupation of Iraq, which killed hundreds of thousands of people by even modest estimates.
I bet he thinks all those people with relatives blown to shit by our drones in Pakistan, in Yemen, and in Honduras are equally ungrateful.
