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 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).
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
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.
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.
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.

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.
