WOW!… Ted Turner: I Think It’s “Good” U.S. Troops are Killing Themselves (Video)

Ted Turner was on with Piers Morgan last night.
He said, “I think it’s good U.S. troops are killing themselves.”

CNN posted the transcript:

TURNER: It’s time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and start acting like civilized, educated human beings.

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.

    He caught himself saying ‘terrific’. What a nasty waste of air. The suicides having nothing to do with being enlightened and everything to do with not being respected or supported by their own government.

    Hey Ted, could you please go over to the Middle East and explain your theory to Al Qaeda and the Taliban?

    Why someone who would say such a thing has any stature in society is beyond me.

    Anthropologists would argue with that “born to help and love each other” stuff.

    Yeah I was wondering how that squares up with evolution’s survival of the fittest.

  • Robert

    Like the clip says, it’s “terrific!”

    What a $#!+head.

    Same goes for the network.

    Remember, it was the CNN network that was caught cooperating with Saddam so they could get access.
