September 3, 2008. We killed 15 people in a Pakistan. This was the first time we have openly operated on Pakistan soil.
A Pakistand security official was quoted as saying "You can't keep on raising the intensity and missing out on targets and still expect to be respected as a big military power."
August 21st, We killed 90 children, women and men civilians in Afghanistan. We then lied about it. It turned out someone shot a video. We had to take back our lie. We are investigating ourselves.
My questions for myself. How many children is it OK to kill in our search for a murderer? Is it OK to drop a missile in the country side of New York, or Vermont, or New Hampshire if a known murderer lives there?
What happens to a soldiers heart when he discovers the people he has killed were civilians. How does this affect him when he get back home to his family?
I am beginning to ask myself these questions in order to hopefully have answers for my son as he get older. I do not feel it's fair or just to ask our troups to go into war, in our name, without asking ourselves if there is anything we could do to promote peace.
The Republican ticket is not showing any hope of getting out. What can I do?
