Hypocrisy, Military

Killing Things That Move

I was going to publish this comic later but changed my mind after the massacre of young children in Texas. This comic is a result of my frustration with America’s hypocrisy over the value of human lives. You can read more about Nick Turse below the comic.

This comic was inspired in part by Nick Turse’s horrifying book about Vietnam, Kill Anything That Moves. You can read an interview with Turse here. You can read a review of the book here.

We’ve recently seen a Russian soldier convicted of war crimes in Ukraine, but reading Turse’s book makes one wonder why American soldiers and officers weren’t charged with innumerable war crimes in Vietnam. Well, not really, but it does bring up again the hypocrisy of the way we value human lives.
