    To many lost within the ever popular culture inflicted patriotic-religious-military mindset, non-traditional sex and love are the subjects of scorn and disgust, while innocent deaths and widespread destruction are applauded and revered. Petraeus’s downfall and disgrace was due to his love of a woman, but the American fundamentalist patriots ignore his crimes against humanity, and put their hands over their hearts saying, “God bless our troops and God bless America.”
    Sad state of affairs.
