Obama's Collateral Damage

Yes, it's President Obama's war now, and the blood of innocents is on his hands. He has chosen to escalate the war in Afghanistan, to send another 21,000 U.S. troops to the country. He is now guilty for the loss of innocent lives.

Tears streaming down her face, the Afghan woman sat in a corner of a room with no roof and broken windows, mourning 19 of her closest and dearest relatives. “They were parts of my heart,” she said.

Six weeks after American warplanes bombed her village in Farah province, on Afghanistan’s remote western border, mistakenly killing dozens of innocent women and children, the terror of the moment when the bombs fell and the ground erupted, turning one mud-walled house after another into rubble, still lives in her mind.

“I lost them all at a glance. Why am I still alive?” the 62-year-old woman asked.

The dead men, women and children, many of them her relatives, now lie in graves. The survivors still wonder why their families were wiped out by American airmen with whom they had no quarrel.

According to Barack Obama's government , those lives were worth only $2000.00 each (that's the "compensation" paid to the families of those killed).

Looks like once again, in spite of liberal assurances that this guy was different and was going to bring us real change, we have a mass murderer in the White House.
