Brian Williams is catching hell for describing the Syria bombing as "beautiful" and comparing it to a lyric of the late Leonard Cohen. Why am I not shocked? Because so many of the broadcasters wax EUPHORIC about war. They said that when Bush invaded Iraq comparing it to the 4th of July. It turned into a disaster that keeps on growing into the longest war in US history. GET THESE INSENSITIVE BRUTES OFF ESPECIALLY MSNBC SUPPOSEDLY THE PROGRESSIVE NETWORK THAT CARES ABOUT FEELINGS. GD IT, BRIAN, WE ARE TALKING WAR HERE NOT BEAUTY .... THE DEATH AND THE CARNAGE IN THE MIDDLE EAST IS NOT "BEAUTIFUL" IT IS TRAGIC. HE QUOTED LEONARD COHEN MISERABLY AND COMPLETELY LOST SIGHT OF WHO LEONARD COHEN WAS AND WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO SAY AND IT WASN'T THAT BOMBS BLASTING A PEOPLE WAS OH SO BEAUTIFUL. I THINK BRIAN IS MISTAKING LEONARD COHEN FOR OUR STAR SPANGLED BANNER'S ROCKETS RED GLARE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR ETC.! LET'S CHANGE OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM TO "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL!"
