Drones have their problems with collateral damage, but are much more effective in targeting terrorist cells than the invasion of a sovereign country that never attacked us.(Also, doing an lol after a comment about killing children seems rather deranged, JMO.)

Killing Children

If America fails to finally find compassion for the legions of “other people’s” children it has killed, then it will never comprehend why its own, internal massacres occur with such frequency.“Indiscriminate violence made America what it is today.”"It was a horrible scene and I would not let my Company fire. It looked too hard for me to see little children begging for their lives, have their brains beat out like dogs." – Capt. Silas Soule, witness to 1864.America has a long history of killing little children.”

Americans love to think of themselves as innocents. As a result, when they are victimized they are not just in a state of mourning, but one of total disbelief when finding themselves on the receiving end of barbarity. In the moment of bereavement and shock the well documented acts of barbarity that have been and still are committed by their country are conveniently forgotten.

The reactions to the killing of 28 people, 20 of them children, at a school in Newtown, Connecticut are understandable. It is difficult to imagine not being saddened and angered by the news of the senseless slaughter, particularly the killings of children only six and seven years of age.

Yet it is wrong to behave as if little children have never before been targeted for death in this country. While president Obama may shed a tear at a press conference and take on the role of mourner in chief, he has ordered drone attacks which have killed young children. Between 2004 and 2012, 176 children in Pakistan were killed by American drone strikes. According to the president’s staff, he personally oversees the assassination “kill list,” which means he ordered the killing of 16 year old Abdulrahman al-Awlaki after having done the same to his father, Anwar al-Awlaki.

“It is wrong to behave as if little children have never before been targeted for death in this country.”

Of course, America has a long history of killing little children. Hundreds of thousands of children were taken from Africa to be enslaved in America, little children were lynching victims and children are now killed by drones, sanctions, and the other aggressions that this country meets out to the rest of the world. Israel, America’s client state, kills children in Lebanon or Gaza or wherever it feels the desire to carry out its evil intent. Entire families have been wiped out in Gaza, but the president who so solemnly mourns the loss of life in Connecticut, defends the carnage when his ally is the perpetrator. If Adam Lanza had been wearing a police officer or soldier’s uniform, he could have killed anyone he wanted without fear of punishment.” He also could have expected to have nothing but praise heaped upon him.

Video Games Targeted By Senate In Wake Of Sandy Hook Shooting

In 2011, the Supreme Court struck down a California law banning the sale of violent video games to minors. Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for a 7-2 majority, said the law was "unprecedented and mistaken" and noted that fairy tales -- which are read to children at bedtime -- have "no shortage of gore."

well, if you were wondering what the plan is for energy, you didn't have to wait long. And, once again, and again and again, we have Obama on video tape lying about this during the campaign:

The Center for Sustainable Economy (CSE) filed a lawsuit Monday seeking to halt the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's (BOEM) first five-year Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas leasing program approved since the Macondo oil spill in April 2010.
CSE argues in the lawsuit that incomplete and flawed economic analysis led BOEM to rush ahead with new offshore leases that may not be economically justified in violation of the National Environmental Policy Act, Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, and Administrative Procedure Act.
