Uncompassionate towards suffering
By Tommy D. Bergeron
January 19, 2006
It seems to me by watching TV that most people in the U.S. are
very uncompassionate towards suffering the U.S. causes in other
countries. While I know there are those who care about death
and destruction and splattered blood and guts and torn families
and dead children created from our U.S. hands, are most people
not caring? Is this why we aren't talking with great sadness
about the U.S. accidentely bombing wrong houses? Or bombing the
right houses with children in them?
When terrorists kills "innocent"
U.S. people we are horrified. When the U.S. kills "innnocent"
non-U.S. people we aren't.
If there is a terrorist in
the U.S. is it ok to bomb a whole neighberhood to take them out?
Would we just hear about that in the news and disregard it. Do
we think, "oh well, not my neighberhood?".
Sincerely, a foolish non-innocent
