I read with sorrow in my heart the news that nine children were killed during a raid on supposed Taliban forces in Hutula, Afghanistan this Saturday. But I suppose that for many of your readers, this is just another example of a supposed "liberal media bias." Curse those devils at the New York Times and CBS for trying to bring a human face to war! How dare they! Curse them for showing us the real consequences of our actions! When they show us consequences, they aid and abet the enemy! Don't they know that?
Now reflect on the partial-birth abortion bill passed in Congress earlier this year - an act that seeks to protect the sanctity of human life and does so quite admirably. This act, unbeknownst to some, was largely passed through emotional diatribe and a video of the actual horrific deed being done. Now just think: What kind of laws do you think that Congress would pass if they and their constituents could see the true face of war and those who truly suffer from its consequences? What if senators and representatives, before they had to support our president's militancy, were forced to look into the eyes of the people that their votes would destroy?
