'War-porn nation'

Soldiers are returning from Iraq with gruesome MTV-style home videos that are simply shocking CNN- and Fox-weaned Americans. Body and Soul writes: "Today's LA Times [article]... at first glance seems to be no more than the latest piece of evidence that the war in Iraq is warping young men and women, who can only cope with its horror by turning into moral monsters...The most interesting part of the story, however, is...the larger portrait of how Americans as a whole deal with the horror. The families are shocked to see a piece of war that CNN forgot to show them" (Body and Soul)
