President Obama has shed tears for the victims in Connecticut, and frankly I find it kind of hard to take. Search around at this website and you'll find that Obama has killed nearly 200 children in Pakistan. I have a friend from Pakistan. He has a son that I met years back when he was smaller. I can't help but think of all the children that look like this boy that have had their lives snuffed out in our drone war when I see Obama. Obama obviously knows what he's doing in Pakistan. It's not like he's unfamiliar with the killing of children. But now he's ready to come out and show some tears. Why now only? Is it a different sort of animal that is dying in Pakistan? Yeah, they were born to parents that happened to live on a different side of a border line from us. So their death isn't also worthy of sympathy?
The American people generally can be forgiven for reacting only to victims in Connecticut and not Pakistan. They don't really know about Pakistan. This is not the kind of thing that is discussed in the mainstream media. The media is of course going to talk about Connecticut, and any normal healthy person will feel sadness for the victims. But our President is not in the dark about Pakistan. This is not the first time in his presidency that a report of child victims has come across his desk. This time he's moved to tears in public, but not before. Did something change? Child victims are suddenly tragic. Why now and not earlier? This is what we need to ask ourselves.
