The military in the United States portrays itself as endowed with the highest virtues—honor, duty, self-sacrifice, courage and patriotism. Politicians, entertainers, sports stars, the media, clerics and academics slavishly bow before the military machine, ignoring its colossal pillaging of state resources, the egregious war crimes it has normalized across the globe, its abject service not to democracy or freedom but corporate profit, and the blind, mind-numbing obedience it inculcates among its members. A lone soldier or Marine who rises up inside the system to denounce the hypermasculinity that glorifies violence and war, who exposes the false morality of the military, who refuses to kill in the service of imperial power, unmasks the military for what it is. And he or she, as Chelsea Manning has learned, swiftly pays a very, very heavy price.

This U.S. Army photo, provided by the Tacoma, Wash., News-Tribune, shows Staff Sergeant Robert Bales in March, 2012. The Army's caption describes it as being taken the night of the attacks. Bales, who murdered 16 Afghan villagers in 2012, says he had lost compassion for Iraqis and Afghans over the course of his four combat deployments. The News Tribune newspaper obtained an eight-page letter Bales wrote to the senior Army officer at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., requesting that his life sentence be reduced. He said his mind was "consumed by war," and that after being in prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan, for two years he now understands that what he thought was normal was the farthest thing from it.(U.S. Army/Tacoma News-Tribune via AP)
