hummer

I don’t like Hummers. Never have. But I can’t say I thought about it this way before today:

I want to suggest that Hummers are one small–ok, not so small–part of a larger problem, which is the domestication of war. The more that the equipment of war is packaged for retail consumption, from fatigues to Hummers, the easier it is to think that war is not much different that tearing around the desert for an afternoon.

The pictures embedded in the post are staggering.
