Michael Moore weighed in on the inflated controversy that has been generated by the new movie American Sniper. His argument is that snipers are cowards because they don't believe in a "fair fight".
It's war, not a boxing match. There are no referees. The object is to kill the enemy and destroy his ability to make war. If you do this well enough, it's called victory.
There aren't many living Americans that know about victory, we haven't had one since August of 1945. The end of the last war where we decided that killing the enemy and destroying his ability to wage war was important.
I don't know if we even have to decide if Chris Kyle is a hero. That's pretty subjective. He was a damn fine sniper. I might think he meet my idea of what a hero is. They made a movie about his life. It's an extremely popular movie.
I will tell you one thing I know beyond a doubt. If I had to go into combat and was told to choose between Michael Moore and Chris Kyle to join me, I could make a snap decision.
