Shocking Disclosures about the War

News reports indicate that 90,000 documents classified as secret by the United States government have been made available to the public through a website WikiLeaks. These documents relate to the war in Afghanistan and supposedly reveal what is really happening over there. They paint quite a different picture than we get from the regular media. It seems that people actually get killed as a result of our armed intervention in that far-away country. Imagine that! War results in people getting killed. This is supposed to be a shocking revelation about what is going on. From my perspective, it is to be expected that people get killed in war. Our men and women in the armed services are trained to kill and given the equipment to do so. It should not be a surprise to the American people, but that is what happens when we send our troops into war.
