That's what happens when you have things like the TSA and the Patriot Act.
Oh, wait, that's the school shooting in the USA that happened today.

Sad thing is, these attacks in China against children are far more common.

Our heart breaks for the young children that lost their lives. Please pray for them and their families!! We also lost someone very dear to us, our 18 year old son. He died in a very “UNUSUAL WAY”. The day he died he was all excited about getting to his cross country running class to test out his new shoes he was given free the night before. See NEWS VIDEO COVERAGE at http://RacetoHeaven.com
Our son was an AP calculus student in high school, cross country runner that ran 40 plus miles a week since the age of 8. When he died an autopsy was done and no drugs or alcohol were in his system.

The china attack:
"A Guangshan county hospital administrator said the man first attacked an elderly woman, then students, before being subdued by security guards who have been posted across China following a spate of school attacks in recent years. He said there were no deaths among the nine students admitted, although two badly injured children had been transferred to better-equipped hospitals outside the county."
Seems a knife is not as deadly as a gun. Of course there were security guards there ...

First of all, it is a tragedy. It is sad regardless who are the victims and where it occurs.

In this tragedy these 20 shooting victims were just little kids who were awaiting the happy Christmas holiday and Santa to visit them.

What happened last week has rekindled a hot debate over gun control.

Personally, I support tougher gun control. But many Americans especially those of the National Rifle Association insist that patriotic Americans have the right to own guns to protect themselves and their country. Fair enough as long as it does not hurt innocent people such as these kids.

I know why USA is so eager to launch wars in foreign countries by now. USA attacked Afghanistan, and Iraqi, and was/is involved in proactively subverting Gaddafhi's Libya, and now Syria.

The American leaders are not stupid, and indeed they are smart. They know the nature of many Americans. If they do not launch war overseas, and create an outlet for killing, there will be more shooting and killing spree within USA. You can't ban guns overnight and it will be a political suicide to try to do so.

So they divert the energy, ethusiasm, and skills of militant Americans overseas by adopting a extremely militaristic foreign policy. If used properly, these patriotic citizens are extremely good fighters and they will kill their "enemies" ferociously.

That explains why there are so many massive killings and attacks on Muslim civilians in the Middle East.

This militaristic policy is selfish, but it is good for Americans though bad for people in the Muslim world!
