Top 10 Reasons Why It’s Just Fine for U.S. to Blow Up Children

Is it really necessary for me to explain to you why it’s acceptable, necessary, and admirable for the United States and its minor allies to be blowing up houses, families, men, women, and children in Syria?

This latest story of blowing up 85 civilians in their homes has some people confused and concerned. Let me help you out.

1. Somebody mistook them for ISIS fighters, determined that each of them was a continuing and imminent threat to the United States, verified a near zero possibility of any civilians being hurt in the process, and determined that some more bombing was just the way to advance a cease-fire in Syria. So this was not only an accident, but a series of unfortunate events, mistakes, and miscalculations of such proportions that they’re unlikely ever to all align again for at least a few days to come.

2. This isn’t actually news. That the United States is blowing up civilians by the hundreds in Syria has been endlessly reported and is really of no news value, which is why you don’t hear anybody at presidential conventions or on TV talking about it, and why you shouldn’t talk aboiut it either if you know what’s good for you.

3. Quite a lot of families actually got away without being blown up and are now refugees, which is truly the ideal thing to be in Syria, which is the most totally prepared place for more refugees in the history of the earth, or would be if liberal internationalist do-gooders would provide some aid and stop whining about all the bombs falling.

4. Who gets labeled a “civilian” is pretty arbitrary. The United States has killed thousands of people who clearly were not civilians, and who likely had no loved ones or anyone who would become enraged by their deaths. So why lump particular groups of families into the category of “civilian,” and why just assume that every 3-year-old is a civilian, and then turn around and complain with a straight face when the government labels every 18-year-old male a combatant?

5. Houses do not actually have feelings. Why be so bothered that people are blown up in their houses? I’ll let you in on a little secret: The word “battlefield” hasn’t meant anything that looks like a field for decades. They don’t even have fields in some of these countries that don’t know any better than to get themselves bombed over and over again. These wars are always in houses. Do you want the houses bombed or do you want the doors kicked in? Because when the Marines start kicking in doors and hauling people off to torture camps you whine about that too.

6. People who live in an ISIS territory are responsible for ISIS. Even those who didn’t vote in the most recent ISIS election have a responsibility to get themselves burned alive, and if not then they are responsible for the evil of ISIS and ought to be burned alive by Raytheon missiles which at least make somebody some money in the process for godsake. And if ISIS won’t let people flee its territory, but won’t burn them alive, then it’s time for the international community to step in with efficient burning-alive systems that meet international standards.

7. Donald Trump has sworn he would start killing families. If the U.S. government does not continue its centuries-old practice of killing families, Trump might gain support and endanger us all by creating the new policy of killing families.

8. When airplanes take off from Turkey to commit mass murder in Syria, it helps to bring Turkey back into the community of the rule of law and international respect for human rights, following the recent coup attempt. Keeping U.S. nuclear weapons in Turkey serves a similar purpose.

9. Sometimes when you blow people up in their houses, their heads can remain on their bodies. When U.S.-armed moderates behead children, they’re doing it for the goal of moderating the moderation of moderate allies and allied moderates. But when the United States kills directly, it is important that there be a chance of some heads remaining on bodies.

10. Unlike every other country on earth, the United States is not a party to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, so, in the words of the great Thomas Friedman, suck on this.

    Sharply expressed; thank you, David.

    Until Americans demand arrests because of “Emperor’s New Clothes” obvious War Crimes, Wars of Aggression, and forever lies to bullshit these crimes, this is all we’ll have.

    The easiest solution is for US military, law enforcement, and government at any and all levels to honor their Oaths to protect and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, to demand those arrests. If this starts, in an “Emperor’s New Clothes” moment, this tragic-comic empire will be shut down.

    How many more innocent families will be slaughtered before Americans stand for honor? How many more trillions will be looted, lies tolerated, tyrants upheld as presidential?

      Americans don’t even care if their U.S.-funded fighters in Syria behead small boys like in this video from earlier this week.

      > “How many more…”

      Millions more until Americans secede from Washington D.C.

      • Carl_Herman

        Prove it, Charlie. Prove that “Americans don’t even care” when informed fairly and fully.

        I say you can’t, or will avoid that burden of proof to conclude Americans are that amoral.

        Yes, Americans will “secede” from the criminal .01% when they recognize my above point: their “leaders” are War Criminals using our flag, military, and tax dollars to act as a rogue state. WHEN that is clear, Americans will show you they care very much.

        • Charlie Primero

          Americans firmly rejected the anti-war candidate for President Ron Paul…


          Every two years Americans elect congressional representatives who steal money from unborn taxpayers to pay for their “freebies”.

          Your belief that Americans do this merely because they are “uninformed” is absurd.

          They do it because they are immoral and greedy.

          • Don Kent

            “They” do it because they are duped and manipulated by a very sophisticated propaganda machine. You can’t find a report of these 85 civilian deaths anywhere in the msm (at least the NYT, LAT, or WP) Why is that?

          • Actually they did not, but you would not know this by sitting on the sidelines. Would you?

            Jun 6, 2013 How Ron Paul Was Cheated Out Of Presidency

            A compilation of footage that shows how the establishment used illegal tactics to get Ron Paul out of the presidential running. Everything from bias to voter fraud. It makes us sick and we hope Ron Paul and his family have a bright future ahead.


          • Carl_Herman

            Lincoln is right, Charlie. Kucinich faced a similar situation among the Dem candidates: showing massive leads in debates’ real-time polls only to have those results tanked when it came to “official” reporting.

            And again, Charlie: prove your claim that Americans are “immoral and greedy” when informed.

            And how will these “immoral and greedy” Americans secede in your view, Charlie?

          • Charlie Primero

            The won’t. Immoral and greedy Americans will ride the FedGov gravy train until it is unable to service its debt and collapses. Moral people who value freedom, peaceful international relations, and honest money will leave before that happens.

            With 19 TRILLION dollars in National Debt, collapse is a mathematical certainty. The only question is when the restructuring and “austerity” cuts in spending will happen.

          • Carl_Herman

            So to summarize, Charlie: you provide zero, zip, nada evidence of Americans’ choice to be the immoral and greedy beings you assert if they were fairly informed of the facts. You should ponder your lack of evidence to consider if your statements are factually informed.

            Under the current debt model, yes, the debt pile will topple. That said, it’s a debt pile existing as computer digits made into pretty paper called debt securities, so it’s no problem that compensating digits and paper can’t fix.

            Documentation of obvious solutions with money and public banks known since Ben Franklin was so excited about operating colonial Pennsylvania without taxes he wrote a pamphlet:

            I’ve provided enough options to you, Charlie, if you’d like to join those of us advocating solutions for a brighter future along with a pathway to stop the criminals (arrests). Your call to come up with your best self-expression.

            Just curious: are you an American who’s left the US? Others I know have, others stay to engage in the contest.

      Please don’t bother us with facts. We’re Americans, you know.
