Civilization has devolved. I'm trying to think of any other time in history, other than recent history, where grown men used children as tools and shields in war. I am aware of sexual exploitation of children in failed civilizations of the past. And sacrificing children in ancient pagan rituals. But somehow this seems a bit different ....wholesale. The scale is different. Not to mention the Orwellian joke of the entire thing based on "compassion."
"In a clearly-defined contrast in morality, Israel released a video showing a planned airstrike that was called off when the pilot realized that children may have been within range of his target. Hamas, however, continues to openly boast about how they have encouraged Gazan civilians to sacrifice themselves as human shields."
The little children in great danger, holding hands, staring blankly ahead, are pawns in a larger game. That game is run by adults. How cold do you have to be to use children in this way?
It is evident that the Obama administration orchestrated this crisis in the mode of the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis. It is a matter of public record that as early as January of this year, the administration was soliciting for private contractors to aid in the transport of these children – so they knew these kids were coming.
Redstate - White House Planned in Advance for Illegal Border Surge
Finally, an event the president can’t claim he was surprised about or heard about in the news! Yes, for the first time ever, his administration actually planned well in advance, for the massive swell of illegals coming across the border. Specifically they planned for 65,000 illegals, mostly children under the age of 17, to come across the Texas border.
Well, it is what it is. How cunning is it to use the compassionate against the sovereignty of their own nation? The Palestinians have nothing on Obama. He is cut of the same cloth; cold and calculating against the civilized, against anyone who would block his ultimate goals of power and control. Men who would use children for their own power are mentally sick, psychotic. They have devolved into barbarism that those on the left proclaim they have "evolved" past. God saved Abraham's son from sacrifice. How godlike are these men who demand children die and suffer, are used as pawns for political power? Even God backed off on that one. "We," (Christians) Americans don't do things this way.God bless America as we used to know it.
(caveat: The part about Abraham is my understanding of the compassionate God who doesn't demand sacrificial innocents for His own sake. )
