Child Soldiers? Obama approves.

Obama Waives Child Soldier Ban in Yemen and Congo
Tens of millions of dollars of U.S. military financing will continue to flow to Yemen and three other countries that recruit and use child soldiers, despite a 2008 U.S. law designed to restrict U.S. taxpayer funding of foreign militaries that enlist children to fight in war.

The White House issued a memorandum Tuesday evening to allow military funding to Yemen, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Chad, three of the six countries on the State Department's list of foreign governments that recruit and use child soldiers in state-backed armed forces and militias.

Human rights advocates say the presidential waivers, issued for a second year in a row, undermine the intentions of Congress.

The Man of Peace is promoting the use of child soldiers. How can anyone support someone with such principles? Maybe they hold this inconsistent view of him which washes over the actual by relying almost entirely on Obama's rhetoric... It's pretty sad--both for those kids and for the US democracy.

What? You expect old people to go out and fight? Or even more disturbing, you expect politicians, rich people and the elites to do the fighting and dying?

Like I said, least deserving Nobel prize winner yet. I would rather Fibiger be recognized than Obama.

I am uncertain what that video actually had to do with the approval of children soldiers.

So, for those who voted for Obama, what do you think about this?

Surely, when we try to justify voting for Obama, we must reconcile such costs (e.g. subsidizing the production of child soldiers), which in turn requires an adherence to moral relativism--which is odd if you accept universal human rights (e.g. no child soldiers/compulsory child labor).

How can alleged 'liberals' support such a morally decrepit person?

The Ends justify the Means. Why don't you understand that?

Two, one to screw in the lightbulb and one to suck on Obama's cock.

C'mon Nobunaga. This is a classic tactic. Why defend the president when he can strawman his way out? He types the post, makes him feel better about how clever he is, and then he parachutes out of the thread. Sauron forbid he actually criticizes one of the greatest Republican presidents ever (I'm referring of course to President Obama).

Where are the liberals who supposedly are against such atrocious crimes? Where's the left-wing which supposedly disapproves of this?

And why do they continue to support the Executive?

They are all busy signing some Amicus brief. I don't know why Amicus doesn't wear boxers or why this brief has been such a sticky issue, but that's what's going on.
