Arab Children by Jay Janson

Headline news: Jerry Sandusky found guilty of child sex abuse, should spend rest of his life in prison , by Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports, 6/22/2012.
By comparison, America's Armed Forces, since end of WW II, have been murdering children on all continents by the tens of thousands, but nobody has gone, or is expected to go, to prison.  Children being killed in US invasions and bombings in dozens of small countries is understood to be excusable for being collateral and non-intentional. The same vast majority of Americans that will certainly and naturally wish to see Sandusky locked up and the key thrown away, are insufficiently interested in the ongoing ten years of collateral murder of great numbers children in Afghanistan and never imagine those responsible should be arrested as Sandusky was.

Americans have been mass-murdering children collaterally in countries already made poor and vulnerable from centuries of Western imperial military occupation and exploitation for the purpose of "maintaining unjust predatory investments," cried out Martin Luther King Jr., before someone shut him up with a bullet to his head.

By King's reasoning, the intended result of all this massive collateral non-American child sacrifice is the American ruling wealthy continuing to own or control approximately half the wealth and natural resources of the planet (UN statistics).

Wall Street investor owned and Pentagon fed commercial media anchors, commentators, editors and reporters are always telling us that Americans, on the contrary, are heroically and selflessly spilling their blood to protect people in all these little countries from their own 'bad guys' (American designated) - who somehow threaten the freedom of all Americans (not only the freedom of America's wealthy rulers to invest wherever).

Meanwhile the deaths and maiming of untold thousands upon thousands of children who fall in harms way of advancing US military are rarely mentioned, while each death of an US soldier is poignantly deplored, often alongside the dead soldier's photo in dress uniform.

Should any 'bleeding hearts' protest the collateral murdering (of many millions if the parents and uncles and aunts of the children killed are counted in), the murder-excusing and dismissive slogan 'War is war' is solemnly pronounced as a discussion closer

It is to little avail, that at even with the high level exposure of presidential candidate debate in which conservative Ron Paul patiently explains that all these US invasions and bombings and costly occupations of small nations are, and have been, illegal for breaking laws inherent in the US constitution, including for their being undeclared wars.

Undeclared war and the 'accidental' taking of children's lives in countries the US president orders invaded - 'to defend the interest of US corporations and investment banks', MLKjr - has become part of the American way of life. War became part of the American dream long before these corporations and investment banks financed and collaborated with Nazi Germany's rise to number one military power.  The collateral taking of children's lives during the US invasion of the Philippines and the undeclared wars on Native Americans was perceived a necessary evil though by far fewer citizens back in that age of limited power of the war promoting press.

This aspect of US life style like so many others is created by today's pleasantly
fascist minded controlled press advertizing American superiority and exceptional-ism praising war and consumer materialism to the now long self-indulgent population of the affluent superpower which came to supplant the British and French empires in world domination.

Some of us are old enough have witnessed the collateral massacring, in our name, Korean children in Korea, Vietnamese children in Vietnam, Laotian children in Laos, Cambodian children in Cambodia, Dominican children in the Dominican Republic, Cuban children in Cuba, Panamanian children in Panama, Grenadian children in Grenada, Somali children in Somalia, Afghani children in Afghanistan, Iraqi children in Iraq, Lebanese children  in Lebanon, Pakistani children in Pakistan, Libyan children in Libya and apparently now willing to do the same being planned for Iran, while encircling China with bases and military alliances that will inevitably lead to collateral murder of Chinese children in China, never forgetting the children dying in arranged massacres of Greeks in Greece, Guatemalans in Guatemala, Iranians in Iran, Congolese in Congo, Argentinians in Argentina, Peruvians in Peru, Chileans in Chile, Haitians in Haiti, Colombians in Colombia, Salvadorians in El Salvador, Nicaraguans in Nicaragua* and now Syrians in Syria.* *

And all this cutting short the lives of our overseas brothers and sisters precious children was in the aftermath of a world war, which was originally aimed at the Soviet Union by Hitler's wealthy US backers most of corporate America and its financial industry and took the lives of twenty-seven million Soviet citizens, more that a fourth of which were children. Toward the end of the world war, there was especially gross disregard for children's lives shown in the fire bombing of residential areas of German and Japanese cities and the atom bombing two large cities murdering between 40,000 and 50,000 children.

And here this writer would like to caution a "make no mistake" as presidents like Obama, beholden to the Military Industrial Complex (as was Eisenhower while president), often warn when defending a war promoting lie. Make no mistake, the mind of the century, Albert Einstein stated, "Killing under the cloak of war is no different than murder."***

Sandusky is being prosecuted and if guilty verdict stands will be incarcerated. Sex crimes should always be prosecuted. How about the campaign to Prosecute US Crimes Against Humanity Now. Many at least in the King Condemned US Wars International Awareness campaign see this as what King would be calling for were he still alive today and still dedicated to what he called atrocity wars inoperable for non-participation.

What is unfolding in Syria is an armed insurrection supported covertly by foreign powers including the US, Turkey and Israel. Armed insurgents belonging to Islamist organizations have crossed the border from Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. The US State Department has confirmed that it is supporting the insurgency. A monolithic unified slant media cartel restricts reports to indiscriminate killing of civilian protesters by Syrian government.

Blowing Children Into Body Parts By Jay Janson
http://www.countercurrents.org/janson220711.htmBlowing Children Into Body Parts. By Jay Janson. 22 July, 2011. Countercurrents. org. This article is about the author's two sons, who weren't blown to pieces as toddlers, whose dad never had the experience of seeing his firstborn's young philosopher's eyes staring up to the sky fixed in a lifeless stare as if astounded that parts of his arms and legs were gone. Never had to pick up the entrails of my second born, unable to find his head, which we always remembered for having had the heartbreaking smile of a three year old.

The article is also about President Barack Obama's two daughters which Obama never had to bury with closed casket for their remains being incomplete and unrecognizable.

It's also about David Petraeus' six grandchildren, who are all alive and will probably never be blown into bits and pieces by missiles guided by some low ranking officer sitting in front of a screen of coordinates somewhere in the Mid-West.

Its about CIA Head Leon Panetta's two grown children, who have enjoyed waking to the morning sun tens of thousands of times, got to finish school and university and make love and have fun in contradistinction to thousands of children in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan and Libya whose destiny was never to reach adulthood and be the pride of their parents, but instead, to be collaterally murdered as part of a homicidal U.S. foreign policy of world investment conquest.
