As if their children were less valuable than our own, most Americans either ignore or remain passive-aggressively ignorant of the civilian carnage associated with these so-called "targeted strikes."

We need to plaster the internet with pictures of innocent victims of our state-sponsored terror attacks on other nations. Nations we have never declared war on.
Obama is 'staying the course' for Bush, that is why you don't hear Bush criticizing him. Because they BOTH work for the same NWO bosses.
Adult humor (truth) / not for children:
His attack was not unprovoked".

Wow! The line "Adukt humor (truth) / not for children." is from my comment on another story. How did it get posted inside THIS comment?
Someone is spying on us at Care2.
Some people's comments are disappearing also.
In case you are curious, the 'adult humor' was this:
The Truth About Republicans by George Carlin"

Thanks for posting this, Judy. It seems the "collateral damage" from these drone attacks is always presented by MainStreamMedia as necessary. The murder of innocent civilians--women, children...families is not only horrendous, but actually causes more "terrorist attacks" in those countries. And now, they're flying these drones inside our American borders as well, (although I guess they're not "armed"). So, the question would be, Why is America provoking terrorism overseas?

I am well aware of this. Now how do we get the rest of the nation to understand it? They have been bombarded /droned ad nauseum into believing "if we don't fight over there, they will come over and get us". On camelback? or another hijacked plane via boxcutters. Ok, so the "enemy" whoever that is, is not sophisticated, yet managed to turn our world 9/11 right into the hands of the war machine.
We had constant reminders of the Soviets all drooling to "come over here and get us". Now what do we have? The Russian Mafia which is more interested in making a capitalism buck than desiring to kill you, me, and everyone else down the street.They are here alright, giving the home grown Mafia a run for it's money.
My point is..how long can a people remain frightened? 10 years, 100 years will we still be POSITIVE that terrorists from the east are gonna get us?

Thank you, Judy, for this antidote to the Administration's pro-drone propaganda this week.

And never forget, the government is implementing various domestic drone programs, too,
generally unarmed but equally damnable.

The "Masters of War" are manipulating us with fear, and for the most part, it's working. The so called "war on terror" is a ticket to endles, unwinnable war. If the enemy is "terror", who exactly is the enemy, other than our sheep-like selves? How do we define a win in this war?

One thing is certain. We will continue to bankrupt ourselves with spending on technology for surveillance and killing.

I myself used to think that people would care if only they knew, but sadly, I have been disillusioned of this. The fact is that some people are compassionate, some are filled with hatred, and the majority suffer from the disease of the soul known as indifference. Not enough people actually CARE about these children and innocent civilians. As an example, look at how few signatures we get on important petitions and I keep seeing the same base group of people posting on these issues. You would think that with 19 MILLION members on Care2 there would be enough responses to overload the site. The only issues that most people seem to respond to are those that affect their own well-being. Take for example the outrage over "pink slime." People care more about "contamination" involved concerning their "right" to consume the flesh of a dead animal than they do about the suffering of that creature or all the starving children around the world. Look at how many are members for years with nothing to show for it, no passionate posts or butterflies diligently earned to donate toward easing the suffering in this world. I applaud the dedicated activists on this site who use this as far more than a social media. You few are the ones who are carrying the heavy burden of trying to change this world for the better. You guys ROCK!
