Ted Turner Sees Troop Suicides as "Good" for Ending War Support

Not the most elegantly framed sentiment

|

In an interview with CNN host Piers Morgan last week, Media mogul and CNN founder Ted Turner said the fact that there have been more suicides than combat deaths in the Army this year is not "shocking," but "good."

Highlighted first by Breitbart.com, the Oct. 19 interview has Turner speculating that "it's time to put war and conflict behind us and move on," and the rising rate of self-inflicted troop deaths is good because it brings attention to that view.
