Ted Turner: Military suicides outnumbering combat deaths is 'good'

• Ted Turner, Fox News

CNN founder Ted Turner, in arguing for a greater role for the United Nations as the world's policeman and condemning U.S. military spending, said recently that rise in military suicides in relation to combat deaths is a "good" development.

Turner made the comments in an appearance on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." The interview aired Oct. 19, but the comment about military suicides was highlighted Thursday by Brietbart.com.

From the transcript of the interview:

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.

I fully agree with Mr. Turner. I am not happy to hear of the deaths of our military by suicide or combat but when you have to figure in the deaths of innocents caused by our invading military, then what Mr. Turner has said makes a lot of sense. Just what will be coming upon us for this next year after these November elections has already been decided by those that handle the pesidents of this nation. Whatever it is going to be in not going to be pretty.
