Military Child Killers

That is U.S. military child killers–in Afghanistan. It seems that “as the U.S. military withdraws from Afghanistan, it is leaving behind a deadly legacy: about 800 square miles of land littered with undetonated grenades, rockets and mortar shells.” One father said of his son after he heard a boom and ran to him: “The left side of his body was torn up. I could see his heart. His legs were missing.”

Unfortunately, the attitude of some American conservative warmongers and military apologists is this: Oh, but the kid was just a foreigner. He was just a Muslim. He was just a towel head. He was darker than us. He would probably grow up and become a terrorist anyway.

This is yet another reason why I don’t support the troops. They kill children. Sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly, but they kill children.
