I Fail to Understand These Double Standards

Red Cross: Dozens of Afghans Killed in US Airstrike

Al Jazeera



Earlier, Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, said in Washington that the Obama administration "deeply, deeply" regrets the loss of innocent life, calling such incidents as the reported killing of the 100 people "particularly painful".

But neither Obama nor Clinton specifically accepted US blame for the deaths.

Yes, how dare the world suggest that US planes did this? It must have been those bad Gremlins, stealing their fighters and dropping those bombs. Bad Gremlins.

Not surprisingly, all the countries that shout as champions of HR are silent. Of course, when their Big Brother does these things, it is acceptable. They don’t want to be on the bad side of the Big Brother do they?

Argh...This whole worlds is nuts.

I followed the link to to DM article. It appears that the UN and REd Cross have been claiming higher casualty figures than the US government?

Obama is no different to the rest of the empiricist US citizens. The problem with the world is people ike to belive that essentially it is politically correct. while in reality it is just the same as it always has been. With the powerful garnering for more power and human lives being nothing more than pawns.

People will look back in about a thousand years and talk about our times like we talk about the Romans. This is just the way the world has always worked.

Wrote a bit abt Obama here

Actually HR organizations are the only ones that make some noise. On the contrary all the countries are silent.

I think I haven't been surprised by what goes on in the rest of the world for ages. Cynicism has come early.

Thank you for your comment. I have corrected the image linking problem.

Cheers, Marisa.
