    World Focus: Killing Children: From Ghazi to Detroit
    Friday, May 28 @ 03:03:22 UTC
    Child VictimBy Ron Jacobs
    May 26, 2010 - counterpunch.org


    In Iraq, the news that families were having the doors to their houses kicked in by heavily armed US forces who then proceeded to awaken everybody in the house, overturn their bedding and other belongings and arrest the household's menfolk became commonplace for several years following the US invasion of that country. All too often, women and children were killed by US troops during these raids.

    In Afghanistan, a similar scenario continues with daily raids of houses and businesses being conducted by US forces in that country. The scene usually unfolds with a kicked in door and several uniformed soldiers entering the house with their weaponry ready to fire. Occasionally, a concussion grenade is thrown first while helicopter gunships hover noisily overhead. Sometimes the soldiers' guns are already blazing when they enter. All too often children end up dead or wounded.

    World Focus: Call It What It Really Is: Sick
    Saturday, October 18 @ 09:05:45 UTC
    Child VictimA Nation of Assassins

    By DOUGLAS VALENTINE, www.douglasvalentine.com

    What do you call it when George W. Bush, without provocation and based on false pretenses, sends an army to invade a foreign nation; and then, without any attempt to negotiate a surrender, effect an arrest, or put this nation's leaders on trial and present evidence of their crimes, instead puts multimillion dollar bounties on their heads, relies on collaborators and spies to track them down, and then corners them and blows them away in their homes, in their own country?

    Do you call it what the Israelis, who lately have done it hundreds of times, call it?

    A targeted kill?

    War and Terror: The unthinkable is becoming normal

    Child VictimDo not forget the horror. The saving of one little boy must not be a cover for the crime of this war!

    by John Pilger, Independent.co.uk

    Last Sunday, seated in the audience at the Bafta television awards ceremony, I was struck by the silence. Here were many of the most influential members of the liberal elite, the writers, producers, dramatists, journalists and managers of our main source of information, television; and not one broke the silence. It was as though we were disconnected from the world outside: a world of rampant, rapacious power and great crimes committed in our name by our government and its foreign master. Iraq is the "test case", says the Bush regime, which every day sails closer to Mussolini's definition of fascism: the merger of a militarist state with corporate power. Iraq is a test case for western liberals, too. As the suffering mounts in that stricken country, with Red Cross doctors describing "incredible" levels of civilian casualties, the choice of the next conquest, Syria or Iran, is "debated" on the BBC, as if it were a World Cup venue.

    War and Terror: More bloodlust than a real war
    Friday, April 11 @ 17:51:08 UTC
    Child VictimBy Alan Ramsey, www.smh.com.au

    Behind the gloating of John Howard (restrained), Donald Rumsfeld and the Murdoch communications empire (hysterical), what is there to be proud of? This was no war but a travesty. It was an invasion by 300,000 military forces to "disarm" Saddam Hussein of his "weapons of mass destruction". It was not about "regime change". We know this because our Prime Minister said so, repeatedly, for months. And he wouldn't lie, would he? This was a "war" to strip a "rogue state" of biological and chemical weapons to keep them out of the hands of "international terrorists" and "other rogue states".

    When Baghdad fell on the 22nd day of the Anglo-American invasion, with Australia's tiny force no more than the military tea lady, the outcome in numbers, as reported from US central command at Doha, Qatar: US forces 255,000; British forces 45,000; Australian forces 2000. Casualties: US 101 dead, 11 missing, seven captured; British 30 dead; Australian nil. Iraqi military, between 5000 and 10,000 dead (estimate); Iraq civilians, 600 dead and 4000 wounded (estimate).

    War and Terror: Shedding no tears for Iraqi civilians
    Friday, April 04 @ 20:40:29 UTC
    Child VictimBy Firas Al-Atraqchi, YellowTimes.org

    In a shocking twist of events on the ground in Iraq, the so-called humanitarian mission of the Anglo-American coalition took a dark and sinister turn.

    On March 31st, ten women and children were killed near Najaf when a van they were in was riddled with fire from U.S. Marines who had tried to get it to stop at a military checkpoint. After Saturday's suicide bombing that caused the death of four U.S. Marines at another checkpoint, coalition forces are now instructed to shoot at any vehicle or person that does not stop.

    U.S. Marines said they had shouted at the driver to stop but to no avail. They then fired warning shots, but the van ploughed on. The matter is still under investigation.
