Marine general loses it

I have no idea what would make this guy say this stuff, but he did. I suspect it's more than just war, I think it's the dehumanizing role of the armed forces themselves (I have read some horrible stories about that). But stranger still are the themes of hyper-masculinity found in his comments. I wish I knew the context of this whole thing: whose panel was it? What question was he asked?

Statements like that are truly sad. It goes back to the idea that you'd like to the think that the US is above that. I can draw the line between rubbing titties on some poor brainwashed Taliban kid and reveling in shooting people. The idea that it is fun to end human life is sickening... it may be necessary, but I would never agree that it is "fun"
