    None of us are experts as to whether we should still be at war, or whether we should be using drones, but this picture makes a valid point about us in general not giving a damn about large numbers of children that are killed overseas by us, or others.

    Right, right. Because I was born in this country I`m supposed to be feel guilty and personally responsible because my military sent drones in that killed civilians.

    Funny that people think drones are out there targeting civilians. Take off your blinders, dig a little into some of those cases and you`ll be surprised what you find. All you hear on the news, not just Faux News either, they`re all guilty of it, is never the whole truth. They say "This many children were killed, this many civilians killed, blah blah blah..." They always forget to mention that the target was a known terrorist hideout that had a bunker in basement where women & children were holed up and no one knew about it. Want to know why they were there? Because the hadji`s don`t give a f*ck if women & children are killed so they stuck them down there hoping we`d drop a few bombs and kill them all so they can say, "Hey, these a$$holes are dropping bombs on women & children." They do it because they know people in the western world become outraged when innocent people are killed so it makes us look like the bad guys.

    The point is that it`s a tragedy when any innocent person is killed.....and it happens every day, although most people take little notice unless it`s in their own back yard. If you can`t understand that, then you might be a sick fck

    Thats an honest post. It is sad that kids are being killed anywhere. However, this incident shows how biased the media is. They show all the stories behind the victims and people feel calmer and forget that they need to be mad and rage to change sh%t in this country. God bless every kid an I hope that ANY kid killer burns for years before dying.

    After the shooting I was actually having a discussion with someone about how our military is murdering innocent children knowingly and no one seems to care, and yet when the shooting happened here it`s all anyone will talk about. But I feel both are horrible, not that one is worse than the other.

    whodat6484, What about, for example, the time our military saw some children, about 10 years old, digging. They knew they were children, no adult was nearby. They decided that the children were planting bombs, so they dropped a bomb on them. In reality, the children were searching for dung to use as fuel to heat their house. That wasn`t some terrorist hideout that no one knew had children. It was out military seeing children and deciding to murder them on a false assumption.

    rather like over here The press reported a British kid was killed in the shootings, as to say forget about the rest of them one of our own is dead. Terrible, no more to say

    Who really gives a f*** about those children though? Like honestly? No one. That`s what is sad. You can all act like you give a damn, but you certainly don`t because you never brought it up before hand. I`ve always been aware of the atrocities we commit--from our past, and our present, and certainly our future will proceed down the same path of inanity.

    And Dunbar`s number doesn`t account for the fact that we can still IMAGINE deeper than 200 people. We just can`t fully conceptualize their personalities, likes, dislikes--after a certain number. But I can certainly imagine my garbage man has a wife, kids...hopes, dreams, passions, hobbies, interests, etc.

    @Lillian

    If you`re referring to the NATO led airstrike in the Nawa district of Helmand province in October I`d point out to you that it was not a `false assumption.` It has been reported that 3 insurgents were targeted as they were planting mines in the field.

    It`s a tragedy yes that these children got caught in the crossfire but at the same time instead of trying your best to point out children being killed by the NATO led forces why not start pointing out the numerous children killed in suicide bombings performed by their own people as well?

    vv Good points @djwajda! Afghan terrorists of various stripes kill their own FAR more often than the NATO forces.

    Acid in the faces of little girls? Anyone remember ALL those times it has happened?

    Ben Stein Makes an excellent point: USA`s `liberals` are all upset by this: a random mass murder. BUT Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, leader of Iran, wants to murder ALL JEWS everywhere, including their children, and the Democrats are willing to let him...

    The ONLY reasons the MSM is playing this tragic event non-stop is
    #1 ratings
    #2 it furthers their `ban all guns` agenda

    One year ago to the month my nephew was kicked to death at his high school. It never made the news. He was burty murdered in school and no one cared. He was a poor black/Indian teen and was not news worthy.

    Tragedy happens everywhere, this tragedy is no worse than many that have gone before. It`s still OK to be upset about it though, but I think it has to be kept in perspective against similar atrocities committed by the west in the name of justice and international security. Maybe if we did think a bit more about worldwide suffering we would have the impetus to take our governments to task.

    "It has been reported that 3 insurgents were targeted as they were planting mines in the field. "

    The "3 insurgents" WERE the 3 children. They were the ones killed. They were not planting bombs, the false assumption was that they were planting bombs. In reality they were digging for dung to fuel their house. It wasn`t that children were nearby and were killed on accident. The children /were/ the targets!

    anything that is not american, is not worth crying about. It`s like when you watch action movies and 50 bad guys die: nobody cares, but 1 american gets hurt and we even get special sound effects and music. That is the way it is in real life.

    That`s a pretty bad example to use. Bad-guys (as you put) in films ARE BAD GUYS. You`re not supposed to be bad for them. Not only that but that`s not the point of the picture. It`s that the media only pays attention/covers their own yet don`t bother with other countries which are far worse of AND are the result of Americans themselves wanting war.

    Regardless if you live in America or Afghanstahn, innocent people died due to BS actions of a gunman/government. You can put bad guys in that category.

    f.uck off. They`re not the same thing. What happens during a war is absolutely horrific, sure. but the coalition are GENERALLY not going out of their way to murder children. That Lanza kid had a clear intent when he took his mother`s guns and drove to that school, he wasn`t mistaking the identity of those 5/6 year olds,he wasn`t given bad intelligence, he wasn`t suffering from stress or trauma from being in combat too long, those kids weren`t `collateral damage` they WERE the intended targets. The soldier who murdered 16 afghanis back in march is one exception and could arguably be put in to that category, but the amount of media coverage was minimal in that case.

    July 24, 2011(CNN)-An 8 year-old boy was hanged by militants in Afghanistan`s Helmand province after the boy`s father -- a police officer in the southern city of Gereshk -- refused to comply with militants` demands to provide them with a police vehicle, officials said.

    Oct, 31 2012(Telegraph)-The first blast killed ten when their vehicle hit a bomb in the Kshata Dizor area of Musa Qala district at around 9am on Wednesday. The governor`s office said the dead included three women, four girls and three small children.
    A second blast in Kanjak area of the same district hit a motorcycle, killing one man and wounding one woman and three children.

    Nov 8, 2012(BBC)-In the Helmand attack four women and two children were among the dead when their minibus - believed to have been to a wedding party - hit an improvised explosive device (IED) in Musa Qala. Six other people were wounded.
    A spokesman for the Helmand governor blamed the explosion on the Taliban.

    hmmm
