Obama Orders First Murder

Congratulations are in order for President Barack Obama, who today has successfully completed the common rite of passage of Presidents: ordering his first murder.

See folks, don’t forget that morality doesn’t suddenly change for you when you enter the oval office or when you enter a battlefield (whether legitimate OR illegitimate). But in fact, presidents have a knack for just ignoring “conventional” morality, take Nixon for example, who said, “Well, when the president does it that means that it is not illegal.” Given, there is a great difference at times between what is legal and what is moral, but Presidents who believe they are above the law probably won’t have a problem being above morality either. From the UK report:

Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.

Security officials said the strikes, which saw up to five missiles slam into houses in separate villages, killed seven “foreigners” – a term that usually means al-Qaeda – but locals also said that three children lost their lives.

So while pro-war conservatives should be thrilled that Obama is continuing the Bush foreign policy, we should call evil for what it is – unlike most mainstream media shills for Obama or Bush.

Hat tip to Rob Wicks for the story and for this quote:

So, while you can look into the loving eyes of your own beautiful daughters, somewhere in Afghanistan, a grieving family will never look into the loving eyes of three children again.
That’s the price of war, friends…
