U.S. Army Starts Targeting Children

pv30r2z6 U.S. Army Starts Targeting ChildrenImage by Anthony Freda: www.AnthonyFreda.com.

 

Obama and the American military label all young men – between the ages of say 15 and 35 - who happen to be in battle zones as suspected insurgents who they can target and kill.

Under the Bush administration, children were tortured.

Now, the U.S. military is starting to target children for assassination in battle zones. As the Nation reports:

In a despicable article in Military Times, the US military says that children are legitimate targets in the war in Afghanistan because sometimes the Taliban and other insurgents use kids.

 

In the original incident, which I cited in October, The New York Times reported it this way:

The…case of three children allegedly killed in a coalition strike was reported by local officials in Helmand Province’s Nawa district. The officials said that the children were killed in a NATO strike on Sunday afternoon as they were gathering dung to burn as fuel, a common practice in the desert reaches of southern Afghanistan where there are few trees.

 

***

 

The Marja governor said that NATO forces watched as improvised explosive devices were being planted, and targeted the insurgents planting them. “As a result two I.E.D. planters were killed and the shrapnel killed the three children who were wandering nearby,” he said. Other reports said that three insurgents had been killed.

 

A spokesman for the international forces, Maj. Adam Wojack, said that the coalition forces were aware of the allegations and that the episode was being investigated. “I.S.A.F. did conduct a precision airstrike on three insurgents in Nawa district, and the strike killed all three insurgents,” he said.

 

“None of our reporting shows any civilian casualties or any children.”

But on December 3 Gannett, which owns Military Times, ran an article headlined: “Some Afghan Kids Aren’t Bystanders.” It said:

When Marines in Helmand province sized up shadowy figures that appeared to be emplacing an improvised explosive device, it looked like a straightforward mission. They got clearance for an airstrike, a Marine official said, and took out the targets.

 

It wasn’t that simple, however. Three individuals hit were 12, 10 and 8 years old, leading the International Security Assistance Force in Kabul to say it may have “accidentally killed three innocent Afghan civilians.”

 

But a Marine official here raised questions about whether the children were “innocent.” Before calling for the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System mission in mid-October, Marines observed the children digging a hole in a dirt road in Nawa district, the official said, and the Taliban may have recruited the children to carry out the mission.

Shockingly, the article quotes a senior officer saying that the military isn’t just out to bomb “military age males,” anymore, but kids, too:

It kind of opens our aperture,” said Army Lt. Col. Marion “Ced” Carrington, whose unit, 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, was assisting the Afghan police. “In addition to looking for military-age males, it’s looking for children with potential hostile intent.”

War crimes?  It would appear so.

But the U.S. government exempts its own acts from the definition of terrorism, even as it labels others as terrorists for doing the exact same things.

If the army is now public enemy number one for targeting children, let's celebrate our new national heros, the corporations

Azteca America, Fundacion Azteca America and Hermes Music

who paraded through Los Angeles in a colourful carnival, throwing toys at needy children to brighten up their christmas.

So THAT's what a Smart -Drone is! 

It's able to detect someone's age before exploding over his head and - get this! - leave anyone else in the crowd that's outside the 15-35 age-range completely unharmed!

WoW!  Wonder if can it be adjusted to work on a specific individual when Congress is in session - say like a certain female pain-in-the-ass senator that represents  New York!

And how could I have forgotten--The U.S. military's campaigns against Native Americans?  How many women, children, and elderly people, considered less than human, were simply slaughtered for any, or no, reason whatsoever?

You act as though this is something new.  Seriously, either learn history or shut up.

Lincoln's War--Union forces routinely Southern slaughtered women and children.

Any U.S. counterinsurgency, from the Philippines to Vietnam--U.S. forces routinely killed women and children.

World War II--Allied forces slaughtered several million German, Italian, and Japanese civilians, mostly women, children and the elderly.

Internally--ever hear of Mrs. Randy Weaver or the innocents at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco?

It is the nature of tyranny to kill anybody opposed to it.  Leviathan always has, and Leviathan always will, kill even its own to feed.

what is the punchline?

the author of the artilce gets the message out that what you stand behind is bad and if you want to be informed (begood) then listen - for a price.

what the actual cost is of listening to for profit gloom and doom and boom is you disconnect further from folks who are brainwashed, have information that will further disconnect your behavior from the norm and never get any closer to the significance of what it means to really live

this place is a punchline and i love a good laugh - as the joke is how this info is disected, distributed and made for bots to control how the real voting in society is done (thru markets)

does anyone know what a goddamnedmutherfukinnaggerslave is yet?

By god I won't ever criticize some military guys for targeting children, or innoncent people, they were there, risking their lives, not me. I don't know the smell of fear, I push papers around in a desk and I play Call of Duty. Who am I to give bad or good points on the behavior of active soldiers?

But I will criticize the head of the NATO armies, what the F are we doing in the middle east?

Come on, there are more than enough islamist scumbag in the occidental world to give the troops a proper fight worth dying for.

.
You know we've had to imagine the war here, and we have imagined that it was being fought by aging men like ourselves. We had forgotten that wars were fought by babies. When I saw those freshly shaved faces, it was a shock "My God, my God—" I said to myself. "It's the Children's Crusade." k.v.
.
Slaughterhouse-Five
.
"You were just babies then! she said.
"What?" I said.
"You were just babies in the war - like the ones upstairs!"
I nodded that this was true. We had been foolish virgins in the war, right at the end of childhood.
"But you're not going to write it that way, are you." This wasn't a question. It was an accusation.
"I - I don't know," I said.
"Well I know," she said. "You'll pretend you were men instead of babies, and you'll be portrayed in the movies by Frank Sinatra and John Wayne or some of those other glamorous, war-loving, dirty old men. And war will look just wonderful, so we'll have a lot more of them. And they'll be fought by babies like the babies upstairs."
So then I understood. It was war that made her so angry. She didn't want her babies killed in wars. And she thought wars were partly encouraged by books and movies.

Children victims of WAR, DRUGS, GANG SHOOTINGS, STARVATION BY POLITICAL GROUPS, CHILD LABOR, and other horrible things are indeed fact.

 

However a dead 18 year old is just as wrenching to his parents as a dead 12 year old.

 

Even sophisticated and educated WW2 Germany used pre teens in the battle of Berlin.

 

Drug gangs use pre teens in a war of  kill and be killed.

 

It is always the innocent who damn the wars for the outrage they are.  And, of the innocent, the young are the most compelling for avoiding killing.

 

Organized war with armies of Nations doing battle is one thing. But, when a Nation goes to War with itself, the kids are going to be in it one way or the other. As our Civil War illustrates by the killing of more Americans that all of our Wars--- stable Nations are a better choice than unstable Nations.

 

It may be that the USA needs to use better judgment in being involved with the internal affairs of other Nations. Isolationism may have a place, even in today’s World.

 

But, what about the children. What price for stability and by what definition.

The propaganda effort performed by this article is missed.

It is not about age, childhood. It is all about innocence.

'American' armies do not kill innocent people. The very fact one is killed by an 'american' army is enough to turn that one into a non innocent thing. Usual 'american' trick. 'Americans' state they do not kill innocent people. So de facto, anyone killed is a non innocent people.

Quite a rich topic actually. And that is another strong hallmark of 'Americanism' Noticeably, the 'american' system of justice do not sentence innocent people. This innocence story trailed back to the times of the King's justice which was exposed as imperfect by 'Americans' as they said it forced innocent people to confess acts they did not commit (torture)

Slowly, inch by inch, 'americans' have introduced innocence as a judicial matter, ensuring they wont miss.

An institution of justice is not about establishing innocence, it is about establishing guiltiness. At least it was until the rise of 'americans'.

You are either guilty or non guilty of the accusation. Establishing guiltiness is cumbersome for 'americans' as it would force them to come up with established and accurate accusations. Depriving them from going to fish (they accuse you of something, use that accusation to probe any aspect of your life and finally, find something totally unrelated with the accusation but that might indicate you are not innocent. As such, you are a legitimate target for an 'american' system of justice)

Now introducing innocence as a new factor allows a bullet proof institution of justice that can perform any act under the very fact that innocence can be rendered flimsy that no one is innocent.

As this is the case in Afghanistan. Were those kids innocent? Hard to tell save you rely on the proverbial kids' innocence.

As reported, they might as well one day pick up dung that was used by one of the afghan supports to the Talibans. Making their innocence flimsy.

Does this mean they are guilty of something? Only if this kind of support is agreed upon as a valid accusation of guiltiness. Which is not probably the case.

But by shifting the discussion from guiltiness to innocence, 'americans' ensure themselves that they escape discussing whether or not it has to be a guiltiness factor. Kid was not innocent. It is this lack of innocence that justifies the murder.

King's justice was about sentencing people guilty or not guilty.

'Americans' made the famous "innocent until proven otherwise" a central tenet of their 'americanism' thing.

In such ways to shift the burden of no longer discussing guiltiness but innocence.

Finally, the conclusion rendered by 'americans' is that an institution of justice (especially 'american' justice aka injustice) can not do wrong by killing or putting in jail non innocent people, even when they are not guilty of the accusation laid against them.

Because only innocent people should be preserved from the actions of such institutions.

Hence the focus on kids. Traditionnally, kids are supposed innocent (as unable to perform the sin of flesh) but it is another tradition that 'americans' are going to dismantle. Very easily in case of wars, since 'americans' introduced total war concepts on humanity.

All 'american' propaganda to divert from the major shift that 'americans' imposed on the perception of justice.

It is no longer about being non guilty.
It is all about being innocent.

Another 'american' legacy to the world.

Aint 'americanism' the best thing to have ever happened to humanity?

"There is a serious theme that runs through," Offit explains. "And that theme — that concept of our inhumanity and our self-destruction, and our irrationality — if anything is becoming stronger. God, you read the Times in the morning, it seems like Kurt Vonnegut's worst nightmare has come true."
.
"We have become such a pitiless people," Vonnegut lamented. "And I think it's TV that's done it to us. When I went to war in World War II, we had two fears. One was we would be killed. The other was that we might have to kill somebody. And now killing is Whoopee. It does not seem much anymore. To my generation, it still seemed like an extraordinary thing to do, to kill."

Hello George Washington

Women get raped, torture is common, children murdered and atrocities committed as those who perform these sadistic acts justify it in one form or another.

It is no wonder many of the young who return and witnessed or partook in them are never the same.

The Declaration of Independence is no longer the  cornerstone of America. It says all men are created equal, it does not refer to where they may reside or where they are born on this planet.

Jesus Christ was reported as having said the "Men's hearts will waxeth cold".  History has shown us that men are capable of acting without conscience or good intentions.

Unfortunately the only way this is usually overcome is by taking up arms.

And that is the ironic aspect to this.

Keep in mind the USA is the #1 first aggressor in these cases. Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan - these are not HITLER. USA is there to murder first, steal oil second and to violate every law in existence.

The USA has no legal or defense basis to be there for war. None.

None of these countries pose a threat or even SPOKE a threat to the USA. Not one.

"steal oil second".  So how come the oil contracts in Iraq have been wrapped up by Russians and French companies and not American ones.  And China has been wrapping up the minerals contracts in Afghanistan, riding on the coattails of the US.

Your thesis presumably is that the US is engaged in warfare to altruistically benefit a bunch of parasite states.

Read 'Project for a New American Century's world plan for the US.....    Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Iran...........we're a bit behind - should have invaded Iran by now.  

It's not JUST about oil, it's about having the US DOMINATE strategically important regions to guarantee access to resources.   The pesky locals aren't cooperating though.....
