Presidential Administration Kills 11 More Children

0 Shares

The current Presidential Administration evidently has a great deal in common with the Taliban when it comes to furthering agendas on the graves of dead children.

Rounding out one of the bloodiest weeks in the 12-year Afghan war, fighting between U.S.-backed Afghan forces and Taliban militants on Saturday left 11 Afghan children dead following a U.S. airstrike attempting to annihilate militants hiding in a remote residential area. The children were all between 1 and 12 years old.

According to reports, officials claim that six militants were also killed in the drone strike.

As the U.S. government continues to pump taxpayer money into a war effort in Afghanistan that has been unsuccessful by most accounts, some estimate that an average of 4.8 children die each day in the country as a consequence of ongoing conflict. In Pakistan, where the United States carries out clandestine drone strikes in an effort to eradicate militants, child death tolls directly-related to the strikes hover around 200.

During a vigil for victims of the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., President Barack Obama had this to say about protecting innocent children:

Since I’ve been President, this is the fourth time we have come together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by a mass shooting. The fourth time we’ve hugged survivors. The fourth time we’ve consoled the families of victims. And in between, there have been an endless series of deadly shootings across the country, almost daily reports of victims, many of them children, in small towns and big cities all across America — victims whose — much of the time, their only fault was being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The news of the most recent child deaths in Afghanistan makes it hard not to wonder: Does the President’s logic about the tragedy of children becoming the victims of brutal and terrifying murders at the hands of misguided madmen not apply when the goal is not taking away Americans’ rights, but rather continuing the government’s perpetual war?

    How can this sort of thing be happening? According to Obama supporters, Obama has ended the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan and we no longer have troops there. What? That isn’t true? Well, what do you know. Another lie from the left.

    USSA blowing up children and families around the world all in the name of freedom

  • Mr Diesel

    Obobbo kills ten times as many children as New Town and the MSM is silent.

    Get the troops out and get “planned parenthood” in there. They would have had this situation well under control in the same 12 year period.

    ‘Ouch’ I but my forked tongue!

    I am pleased to note your use of the term “government’s perpetual war”.

    While only partially accurate—our never-ending conflict, responsible for deaths of millions of children, is more properly our War of Capital—it is refreshing to know that a few of your Fright Wing psychophants may allow the truth of that notion to burn through the haze from the Faux Noose Fog Machine and register, if only for a moment, in their very narrow minds.

    Not sure howl old you are, Sam Rolley, but I trust that you shared equal concern for the charred children left in the wake of our misadventures in Panama, Nicaragua, Iraq, Vietnam, the Dominican Republic, et cetera.

    Past columns in this vein, Mister Rolley?

      Just a bunch of proxy wars to benefit corporations. All in the name of “freedom”.

      So anything Obama does, no matter how many deaths, that’s okay? And why forget Waco in your rant? Typical of the left, you’ll use any excuse to justify your own wrongdoing. How yesterdays failings can possibly warrant your approval of the shameless killings taking place today is something only the limited mind of a liberal could understand.

    54 million and counting….America babies that had the promise of a life snuffed out by Planned Parenthood….where is the outcry for them? The sociopaths at PP kill about 3,000 monthly, and if they survive the ordeal, (and they are now a human being that breaths air and this is nothing more than murder), they are thrown into the trash to be taken out to the dump truck….where is the outrage? Are the people responsible for these murders in jail? Heck No. I agree with one of the bloggers above and I am ashamed I feel this way, but I think the government had something to do with Colorado and Sandy Hook … and I still believe that the murdered were killed with handguns and the semi-automatic rifle was still in the trunk of the car because right after the police arrived, it showed a policeman pulling the rifle from the trunk….this story got changed by the propoganda lamestream medias to address the political agenda of the communists/marxists/socialists in the Senate, i.e. Feinstein, Reid, Schumer, etc. to disarm America. More people have been killed by their own government after being disarmed than all the soldiers in all the wars ever fought since the war against England for our freedom. Look it up if you don’t believe me. This is what we can expect if this bunch of pricks pass comprehensive background checks….this leads to confiscation, you can bet on that.

      I don’t like abortion either, but put the blame where it belongs, which is on those seeking the service as well as those performing it.

  • noname

    what about the children of Waco?
    Where is the outcry for someone to do something?
    Who payed for those deaths?
    Are those crispy children forgotten now?

    • independent thinker

      I imagine if you asked the under 30 crowd about Waco or Ruby Ridge they would mostly say “HUH what is that?”.

      • noname

        it was a warm up….

    MR OBAMA SAYS WHATEVER WILL GET HIM THE MOST APPLAUDES AT THAT TIME, TRUTH BE DAMNED!

    You think this might happen if you hide behind women and children?

    So many here turn this into a personality issue or a political issue. The fact is that both parties and many personalities have fostered US foreign policy that has killed millions of civilians around the world since the Viet Nam War. Romney was in favor of the same foreign policy as was John Kerry. The government uses the people’s party and personality preferences to divide and conquer us. What is wrong is wrong whether it is the FBI giving extremists real bombs at the World Trade Center in 1993, Waco, the Incubator Babies Lie to get us into the Gulf War, Oklahoma City, the false flags of 9/11 and the anthrax letters, the drone attacks, the New Town brainwashing- induced atrocity, etc. It is all to keep us funding the military and to permit the Police State to expand here at home.
