CNN Should Never Be On In A Military Establishment Again...
TED TURNER: I think the global policeman should be the United Nations. And I don't think we should need one. I think we should use courts the way we do in civilian life. It's time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and start acting like civilized, educated human beings.
PIERS MORGAN: You made the point to me in the break there, more American servicemen have --
TURNER: -- are dying now from suicide over there than are dying in combat.
MORGAN: That's shocking, isn't it?
TURNER: Well, what -- no, I think it's -- I think it's good, because it's so clear that we're programmed and we're born to love and help each other, not to kill each other, to destroy each other. That's an aberration. That's left over from hundreds of years ago. It's time for to us start acting enlightened.
Not surprisingly, he has now apologized:
"I was implying that it is good that the public is more aware of these tragedies and is more averse to war and war-related fatalities.
My message has always been one of peace, I believe that we're born programmed to love and help each other, not to kill or hurt each other."
Is there anyone out there that believes this man, the very same man that married Jane Fonda, supports our troops? I believe Fonda recently said that Turner was her favorite ex-husband...the highest of compliments in the f-ed up land of Hollywood.
Many Americans shunned Starbucks over an Urban Legend about not supporting the troops...will anyone shun CNN over disgusting comments by its founder?
