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 Infowars.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.

Here's the exchange:

TURNER: It's time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and start acting like civilized, educated human beings.

MORGAN: You made the point to me in the break there, more American servicemen have -

TURNER: - are dying now from suicide over there than are dying in combat.

MORGAN: That's shocking, isn't it?

TURNER: Well, what - no, I think it's - I think it's good, because it's so clear that we're programmed and we're born to love and help each other, not to kill each other, to destroy each other. That's an aberration. That's left over from hundreds of years ago. It's time for to us start acting enlightened.
