How many of those parents who lost children in the Connecticut shooting are christian?
If you pray over their bodies after this then in my opinion you disrespect their memory, where was your bloody god when they needed him most!?
I had a long cry after seeing the story, but I'm not forgetting we are still killing children with drones, oh do you want me to feel sorry for your loss?, I feel sorry for the children NOT you!
Shame on you, Nina, for comparing this tragedy to military drone strikes on the other side of the world. Our president does not relish the thought that anyone must die in a military arena. Especially innocent children. And to imply that Mr. Obama knowingly murders innocents is an outrage.
War is a scourge.
Why do the actual objects of these attacks ensconce themselves among innocents? You seem to be able to blame only one side of the conflict.
Why is that?
Because their cowards and they hope that hiding behind innocents will protect their despicable ass.
Nina, don't forgot, this American war machine is the result of Europe's two world wars. Before that the US had an outdated, weak military and that was fine and good with us. I am sure the draftee US soldiers sent to liberate your country were not exactly thrilled about taking on the German Army.Total war, the bombing of cities, killing civilians is also a European invention.
So now we are saddled with this giant military complex. Just like the one that broke the Soviet Union. It's hard to shed it.
Perhaps the Dutch army would be willing to explain the Afghanistan situation to you. They have first hand experience.
If you want to launch a tirade against America I suggest you open a new thread. To hijack this thread after what our country experienced yesterday is a little callous don't you think. Did you jump onto the Norwegians as well when they were victimized by that European psychopath? Probably not.
Did she say he relishes it?
Ever military leader knows that innocents are a "casualty" of war. Do you think President Obama is somehow an exception?
I believe she did. Apparently she thinks Obama wakes up every a.m. wondering "How many more innocent civilians can I kill today." His job in terms of security is to protect the United States. Period. If she knows a better way to do it, I didn't find it in her post.
Nina, your first words appear to say that Obama has ordered the targeting of children and first responders the way the shooter targeted the Connecticut school children.
You did indeed digress, but your final paragraph gives me hope.
One of the hellishly difficult things that politically active people have to do is to refrain from dumping our emotions in convenient places. Instead, we have to collect the energy our emotions give us and use it effectively. With practice, it becomes easier to do but we might look like mechanical people.
We have emotions, but dumping them would weaken our efforts.

Added later, Nina.
Your words in the posts just above lead me to question my conclusion about hope.
