    Wonder why this little story didn't make it to NBC, CNN, FOX, Drudge, etc. No lip syncing angle?


    "The Obama Administration recently underwent its first U.N. treaty body review, and the resulting concluding observations made public yesterday should be a cause for alarm. The observations, issued by independent U.N. experts tasked with monitoring compliance with the international treaty on the rights of children in armed conflict (formally known as the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict or "OPAC"), paint a dark picture of the treatment of juveniles by the U.S. military in Afghanistan: one where hundreds of children have been killed in attacks and air strikes by U.S. military forces, and those responsible for the killings have not been held to account even as the number of children killed doubled from 2010 to 2011; where children under 18 languish in detention facilities without access to legal or full humanitarian assistance, or adequate resources to aid in their recovery and reintegration as required under international law. Some children were abused in U.S. detention facilities, and others are faced with the prospect of torture and ill-treatment if they are transferred to Afghan custody."

    Because as far as children's rights go they have it pretty good in the US. You want rights violations then look at North Korea, Africa, and the Middle East. In North Korea were people resort to cannibalism to survive. In Africa where babies and children are raped by men with AIDS because they think raping a virgin cures AIDS. And the Middle East where child marriage and sex slavery are ways of life.

    Did you read the passage or just react? The UN is talking about US drone strikes and prisons in the Middle East.

    Fuck the UN and their reports on our actions while they welcome legitimate despots and human rights abusers with open arms.

    So you guys would rather we have American troops on the ground dying in guerrilla warefare? I mean the real issue is that the insurgents live amongst the populace. I mean I wish right wingers could keep their bullshit straight. Bush only really gave one word of advise to Obama before leaving, keep using the drones. I didn't object to Bush doing it, neither did FOX Snooze, and I don't object to it now. I mean there's a reason US casualties have dropped considerably. It ain't safer we are just using technology to wage our war.

    Violating human rights? As Dick Cheney so eloquently says, "so what".

    I was guessing that his point was, their quality of life before our military arrived was abysmal. In fact, Afghanistan is the worst country on the planet for children and mothers. For mothers, their life expectancy (outside of the conflict) results in the worst death rates during childbirth and their child mortality rate is the worst.

    Well, the "boots on the ground" argument has merit, but we're using drones in countries where we do not have an active combat situation (Yemen, Pakistan).

    It's not an unreasonable criticism; that we're hovering over their skies. The people there don't know if, at any moment, their entire block is going to be obliterated.

    To them, it's like a Star Wars Death Star.

    When you declare war on another country, do you have any personal responsibility to remove yourself from the vicinity of innocents? Your loved ones? Family? Schools, hospitals, religious buildings? These terrorists ... who's main targets are soft civilians mind you use these people as human shields. They have no regard for their own lives or anyone else's.

    The United States has done more than any other country to make precise munitions. There is no vested interest in killing innocents. It makes for bad propaganda, Hell, its not cost effective. Show me one country with more discrimination in targeting its foes.

    The day these ragheads take to a battlefield they can stand a be killed like warriors. They are well aware of that so will continue to hide behind burkas, in mosques, and under cribs.

    Yeah, but the problem is after WWII, when we became signatories to the Geneva Convention, we agreed not to kill civilians or, at the very least, to minimize killing them.

    It's not like we can just implement the Marshall plan, despite it having worked out pretty well in both Japan and Germany.

    It's a different world.

    [h=1]Gunmen Kill Nigerian Polio Vaccine Workers in Echo of Pakistan Attacks[/h]At least nine polio immunization workers were shot to death in northern Nigeria on Friday by gunmen who attacked two clinics, officials said.

    Most of the victims were women and were shot in the back of the head, local reports said.

    It also signalled a new wave of anger targeting immunisation drives in Nigeria, where clerics once claimed the vaccines were part of a Western plot to sterilise young girls.
