True, human beings do keep dying: "Coalition of the Willing" personnel, Iraqui civilians, etc.

I was born in 1966 so I can't speak from firsthand knowledge. However, the movies I've seen and whatnot regarding the Vietnam War seem to show a lot more public outrage (I'm thinking of the crowd scene in Washington in "Forest Gump") and I'm thinking of the, "Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?" protest anthem. Is it my imagination or do people these days just not give a shit? Maybe it's a result of our desensitisation from watching so many violent movies and TV? I mean, whatever happened to the outrage? How come this isn't headlining the news .. ah, fuck it. I give up. People just don't give a shit any more.
