An Extraordinary Anti-War Speech

This anti-war speech made in 2008 by war veteran Mike Prysner is extraordinary for its bravery, lucidness and honesty.

It seems to me that the powerful are so insulated from true answerability that the people are no longer rigorous at all in demanding proper morals and standards from our leaders. We seem to have reached such levels of complacency that we applaud the style, disregarding the substance. And so, a succession of patently self-serving leaders has waltzed through various corridors of power in recent years and no doubt will continue to.
