No sanity here

Re: "No honour here," Mindelle Jacobs, Edmonton Sun, July 28, 2009.
The dementia, posing as logic, behind so-called "honour killings" should be familiar to baby boomers who recall the Vietnam War, specifically a statement attributed to a U.S. Air Force Major by war correspondent Peter Arnett. In response to the destruction of a Vietnamese provincial capital, the officer offered the rationale that it was "necessary to destroy the town to save it."

"No honour here?"

Try 'no sanity here.'
