America Abroad: What About the Children?

  • Ivan Eland reminds us that "the arrogance of simply ignoring the rule of law in foreign countries is a rich American tradition, practiced by the U.S. government as well as missionaries" — American Arrogance Overseas Should End.


  • "What justification has been provided by the government of the United States for its decision to kill these five children?" asks Robert Naiman — Team America Kills Five Kids in Marja. "The U.S. government did not decide to kill these particular children; it only decided to kill some Afghan civilians, chosen randomly from Marja's civilian population, when it decided to launch its military assault."

    It's time for you to come back to America and get a grip. You're living in a country whose freedom was substantially purchased at the sacrifice of American lives. Whatever delusional Utopianism drives you to constantly criticize your country for things like unintend civilian casualties needs to be curtailed. Grow up. It's a real world. South Korean freedom was no doubt, obtained at the cost of unintended US caused civilian casulaties as well.

    It's fine to criticize the war, but his is just petty, sneering, cheap-shots. Have ther moreal decency to stop being a hypocrite. Leave Korea - after all, isn't it just one more outpost for U.S. imperalism, for imposing its non-native ideals of a helpless population, etc.

    I'm done with this site. I have no more time for Utopian American self-haters.
