This segment was horrifying. The military has a new program to coerce soldiers into Christianity--a peculiar brand of bloody Christianity. If this springs from concern for the troops' well-being, then stop forcing them to engage in longer and more frequent tours of duty. But this has nothing to do with their well-being. It's trying to put a positive spin on wars we don't want to win and turn them into crusades. That way, soldiers can nver question the war because it's attached to their religious beliefs and God, unlike politicians or a country which has turned against the wars back home, is never wrong. Except when he said THOU SHALT NOT KILL, apparently.
