I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
Why Do Americans Hate Beheadings But Love Drone Killings?:
(Coleen Rowley) The answer lies in human psychology. And probably like the old observation about history, people who refuse to understand human psychology are doomed to be victims of psychological manipulation. How is it that even members of peace groups have now come to support US bombing? One lady framed the issue like this: “I request that we discuss and examine why the videotaped beheading of a human being is understood to be more egregious than the explosion (almost totally invisible to the public) of a human being by a missile or bomb fired from a drone.”
My Commentary: Doublethink much?
