That is interesting. I have never heard that point of view so I took the question at face value. I don't know if this reaches the news in Britain, but right now there is a brouhaha over the friendly fire shooting of Pat Tillman, a gridiron star who volunteered for service in Afghanistan.

In WWII, Americans shot better, I think. Audie Murphy and all that, you know.
