I don't think I can stand to watch the POTUS have a great time and laugh tonite
since he has authorized the killing of innocent children today.

Makes me sick.

And don't give me any shit about how Gadaffi isn't any better, just think about that before you even say it.

4. We are part of a group that targeted a home where they knew children lived. is that enough for you.
Who's bombs they were and who tossed them will be forthcoming I am sure.

However, Susan Rice, Obama's guru got this thing going and I'm sure she didn't do it all by her lonesome.

I know this is a NATO operation under a UN sanction. Who makes the final say on whether an individual is a target of US bombs?

9. Not only that, but NATO has been saying for days that they're not really on an
assassination mission bombing Gaddafi compounds, homes, etc. just that they're trying to take out some offices and this and that sort of thing.

Can anyone say with a straight face that's still the case?

you like that is one thing. Unfortunately, he has partial ownership of it, the good, the bad and the ugly.

war. If NATO had stayed out of it, Ghaddafi would have killed and tortured the rebels and their families, so children would have died because we did nothing. Believe me this is a damned if you do or damned if you don't situation.

34. So where did you get that information? How do you
know who was targeted unless you were there with the generals making the orders? Maybe they didn't know he had his family there as human shields.

61. What kind of father who knows he is a target keeps his
children near him? I certainly wouldn't do that. Anyone meeting with Muammar is a target. You send the children away somewhere where they will not be near you.

Uff da!

71. Oh, dear. I don't want you to do anything, Ms. Bean.
I'm pretty sure you shouldn't watch the dinner, though, since I would want you to be ill. You can freely hold outrage for whomever you wish. I may respond to that if you post it on DU, or I may not. It just depends.

Still, if I were a target of a possible assassination, I'd sure make sure there were no children around wherever I was. Especially no grandchildren. I'm funny that way. I don'l like putting children in dangerous situations. I guess I learned that from my father, who always held his children's, grandchildren's, and now great-grandchildren's safety as his top priority. Seems natural to me.

74. I may respond to your responses to me. If you say I don't know it all, well then
pray tell, tell us what you know that makes me so wrong.

1. It was the sons house
2. We must know he has children that live with him
3. Your stance is that it is OK for the US to make such a calculation to kill innocent children along with Gadaffi.

Those are the facts as I see them at this time.

63. It was Gaddafi's choice to be there. He knows that anywhere he is a target.

Go ask Gaddafi why he wanted his grandkids to be in the eye of a military target.
NATO warned him NOT to use human shields.
It was Gaddafi choice to do so.

Now, ciao! I have to go WATCH Our President at the White House Correspondence Dinner.

67. Ask NATO and the US why it's ok to kill children because
they happen to be there.

Your argument is nauseating.

73. It's a joke, Ms. Bean. Of course you know nobody on the general
staff of NATO. To think you did would be ludicrous. I don't back up jokes.

64. +100. And the owner of the house should have sent the
children away from there for that meeting. People who are targets normally do not keep their children near them in such situations.

66. -100. NO, it doesn't work that way. We are better than that MinMan.
You know it. We are better. We knew or should have known there were children there and we made a choice to bomb away anyhow.

24. Who TF do you think you are to tell anyone what they can or can't say to you?

If you don't want to hear it, don't start shit.

Gadaffi isn't any better. I said that because it will knot your drawers.

and that we have the right to be.

36. What about all the children and women and men that Gaddafi has ordered killied?
And you are upset because NATO is going after Gaddafi in order to stop him from killing more innocent?
All Gaddafi has to do is pull his troops out and step down and it would be all over, and he knows it.

Ridiculous!

Watch the damn dinner and enjoy it or turn off your damn TV!

44. Apparently you know nothing of WHY we/NATO is there.
Gaddafi went on TV and announced that he was going to go into Misurata and KILL PEOPLE.
Would you have been happy for the USA and the rest of the world to just let Gaddafi's troops go in and massacre a WHOLE CITY of people including the children and women?

70. so because Gaddafi does it means we should to it too?
it's even worse when we do it because we are supposed to be morally superior to Gaddafi

never thought I'd see the day when DUers excuse the murder of innocent children.

38. Threads like this make me sick, because it's all about you wanting to feel morally superior
lets not pretend it has anything to do with dead kids. of course you will dramawhore it up with "authorized the killing of innocent children" to make yourelf feel better with your fake outrage.

58. no, they knew it was the son's house.
You don't think our intelligence service would know whether this son had any children or wife.

And why is he dead. Are we now targeting all of Gadaffi's family.

We are better than this. No matter how you try to rationalize this, we are better than this.

54. So far the only information has come from Gadaffi's spokespeople.
There has been no confirmation from NATO or any other source yet; we don't even know which NATO nation's forces did it -- or, for that matter, even if it really happened as claimed. Maybe for the time being you could pull your panties out of your crack and wait to find out what really occurred? It might not even be true.

and will be re-elected in 2012 ;)
