Taliban targets and shoots a little girl
 
http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2...-shooting?lite

Idiots.. These people are such tough guys that they fear a 14 year old girl. Must be their message isn't as correct as they would like everyone to think. Any political/religious movement that calls a peace loving 14 year old girl an enemy that must be killed has some serious problems. Of course, we already knew that. Hopefully, more people in Pakistan start to see that.

If we go on killing little girls with drones, then the Taliban will get support regardless! ;)

Beautiful girl ... so sad to be born into such turmoil.

Ironic isn't it? That her ideal leader is President Obama ... and yet he's the one sending the drones that have been killing people. the irony is painful.

I hate the drones - I hate Obama's use of them - I hate that Bush used other equally tragic measures and I hate the Romney is looking to flip back to the Bush policies if he gets elected!

It's not the tools that I hate - it's the idiots that push the buttons! :censored:

So do I ... which is why I don't understand how Civil Libertarians within the Democrat party can continue to support Obama.

People need to stand for something ... there has to be a tipping point ... an action that is unforgivable and warrents no further support.

I don't like that we kill innocents with our drones either but these people deliberately targeted a little girl. At least we aren't doing that!

We don't target children, now that doesn't say children don't die from our bombings, or ops there's always collateral damage. There is a huge leap from collateral damage and specifically targeting a child.

Bush tried to use the rational thought process that fear [shock and awe] would set these people straight. This kind of enemy doesnt use rational though as shown by their actions. Who would have thought?


Dropping bombs might as well be a recruiting process for these people.

#10 Mr. Wiz Oct 09, 2012 12:19 PM

These people didn't need any help recruiting before we took the battle to them.Part of our justification for the war are these types of examples. We are supposedly helping them rid themselves of these despicable people and they continue to fuel that sentiment with these acts.

I once allowed myself to be swayed by that argument. But no longer. Perhaps being a father has turned me soft ...

It turns my stomach at how quickly we've become used to collateral damage.

Because the alternative in Mitt Romney is truly terrifying to contemplate! :)

B/S :censored::censored::censored:

Sorry friend but that's B/S for the masses as pumped out by the Washington machine and it no longer convinces many of us!

Your right they want nothing more than to die fighting us. Problem is even if we pulled everything out of all Islamic nations and stopped supporting the Jews they will still attack us. They want us to convert to Islam....
