"My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse. But if you're on the roof of your home defending it from invaders who've come 7K miles, you are not a sniper, u are brave, u are a neighbor." -- Michael Moore

So ... it's not easy, but I am trying to make sense of this.  Michael Moore is saying his uncle was worse than a coward because he invaded another country in World War II, where he was killed by a sniper.  Moore apparently knows that this was a sniper, not someone defending his home, even though he killed Moore's worse-than-cowardly uncle, who was invading the sniper's home.

And somehow Kyle, who put himself in harm's way for his country, repeatedly, oftentimes being on the ground and being shot twice and involved in six IED blasts (that is, he wasn't always sniping), even after he left the service (helping other vets), even to his own death ... was a coward, according to Moore.

I am going to admit failure in my attempt to make sense of Michael Moore. G+
