Want to see how the US military justifies killing children?

I used to think G5 was the biggest moron ever. I stand in awe of how wrong I was.

Never let a good tragedy go to waste. Saul Alinsky and Rahm Emanuel would be proud

This post would make a lot more sense if this was the first time the US killed children in their Afganistan/ Pakistan bombing campaign.

Because?

Because?

We've killed hundreds of kids with our bomb strikes in recent years. So quite a few tragedies have "gone to waste," as you put it

Your point is? Those stories get virtually no play in the US media. Most people in the US have no clue how extensive our drone program is

Huffington Post, CNN, UK Guardian, Wiki Entries, local news outlets... and that is from the first page of a single google search.

Are you really arguing this?

Do you really think our drone program has gotten heavy coverage in the US media? Because I can honestly not remember a big story about it. Sure, if you look around online you can find whatever news you want, but that doesnt mean every story gets the same national attention.

Maybe you watch different stuff than me, idk. There have only been a couple of threads on here about it that I recall and none were very popular

Edit: the google page you is blog posts and foreign coverage. Not a single real article from a major US news source (unless you count HuffPo). One is even a letter to the editor in the Florida Today complaining about the lack of coverage

Or are we going by the "If I don't see it, then it isn't happening" rule?

Cook was allegedly involved in an incident with a woman on June 23 outside of a Tallahassee bar, Clydes & Costellos, according to a heavily redacted incident report obtained by the Sentinel. The woman, according to a separate probable cause affidavit compiled by the Tallahassee Police Department, had bruises and abrasions after refusing to give her phone number or go home with an FSU football player. A probable cause affidavit stated one unidentified man approached the woman for her phone number and spoke about taking her home with him. She declined, stating she had a boyfriend. The man and a group of friends identified as five to seven FSU football players, including Cook, began to get into a heated argument with her. She told investigators a person got too close to her and she pushed him away, prompting a man she later identified as Cook to punch her multiple times in the face http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/florida-state-seminoles/os-fsu-dalvin-cook-accused-battery-20150710-story.html
    • And you can find a Terek Hill or Gaberial type in later rounds ..  IF i get a RB i want a 20 to 25 carry guy that can run inside and out.. Catching the ball is gravy but the most important part is being able to carry the load and kill the clock in the 4th qrt..
