America, born in genocide and constantly renewed by bloodbaths, treats mass murder as a virtue. Chris Kyle answered the clarion call of white supremacy, manifest destiny and imperial delusion. Now that he’s dead, the world is a better place.
Kyle declared that Iraqis were not really human beings and thus had lost any right to stay alive. He was a Navy SEAL sniper in Iraq who served five tours of duty and by his own estimate killed 150 people. This week Kyle was himself shot to death and by another veteran.
Chris Kyle had developed a routine of taking veterans out to shoot to try to help them.
Mr. Routh turned on Mr. Kyle, 38, and a second man, Chad Littlefield, 35, shortly after they arrived at an exclusive shooting range near Glen Rose, Tex. For reasons that were still unclear, Mr. Routh shot and killed both men with a semiautomatic handgun before fleeing in a pickup truck belonging to Mr. Kyle.
