"Six children and three women were killed and another three civilian men were wounded,"
"They had four guests at home when the bombing took place. The bomb killed Aka, his wife, four children and three of the guests. One of the guests was wounded,"
You owe it to your two daughters, learning about right and wrong by watching what their dad is doing.

You owe it to humanity, to negotiate with the Taliban, still the government in most of Afghanistan, a government Ronald Reagan spoke well of.

You owe it to yourself as Commander-in-chief, to know exactly why, and for what, the men of al Qaeda are fighting willing to die for. You owe it to your military and targeted citizens safety not to dismiss all U.S. designated enemies disingenuously as simply evil and jealous.
