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.

http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/obama-wai ... d=14663930

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?

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?

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.

Children are small and quick. Also not perceived as threatening. They're cheaper to recruit and train as well, taking less time than the average adult to reach fighting time. Perfect soldiers and operatives.

Obama is now the third guy, and the second black guy, to be building a child army. He is following the footsteps of Dumbledore and Kony. Lets start an Obama 2013 campaign right now to prevent this from happening!

This event still amuses me. Obama supports the training of child soldiers, and the general electorate not only hardly cares but also will continue fervently supporting the President while refusing to think about his actions and consequences.

What a strange world.

So we're supporting these rebels in Syria, right?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-22840728

The same rebels who, if you read the article, executed a 15-year-old boy for a statement THEY THOUGHT was blasphemy but actually was a mis-translation on their own part.

I guess we need an al-Qaida for when al-Qaida is gone, so we're getting them ready.

That doesn't seem very relevant, given that your "running out" is still three years away.
