Someone sent me this link to footage of a building (which i believe is in falluja) being blown up by a U.S. missile. Turn up your volumes and listen to the shrieks of unrestrained joy as the building goes up in smoke, taking god knows how many innocent civilians with it. Notice also the use of the term "bitches" used in feminizing, and therefore by implication degrading,their perceived enemies. There you have it, militarized masculinity: it hides behinds big guns, never looks its victims in the eyes, and constucts its manhood at the expense of the "womanized" other.

Is it any wonder that domestic violence rates are disproportionately high in the households of U.S. army servicemen?
