America, the Child Killers
What if all the children were counted up that America has caused the death or oppression of. From the slaughter of the Indian to their crimes against the immigrant worker, to their conquests and wars around the world. Some Americans are under the illusion their country helps people, but how can they think so with all these deaths of children at their doorstep. Killing children is evil, there is no excuse for this. America is evil.
Here is another article showing Americas treatment of children.

U.S. helicopter attack in Iraq kills seven children CAIRO, May 8. —
Seven children, students at a public school in the Iraqi town of Mandali in Diyala province, were killed after a U.S. helicopter gunship fired on the town, according to Iraqi police sources.
The children were students at the Al-Saada school near the border with Iran, the EFE reported.Along with the children, three other individuals were seriously injured by the attack, and the number of dead could rise. Diyala has been one of the provinces with the most violence this past year, with constant incidents.
An AFP report out of Washington said that the Pentagon had announced Tuesday it was sending 10 additional combat brigades — about 35,000 troops — to Iraq.
No decision had been made on the number of troops that will be stationed in that Arab country in the future, but deployment orders will make it possible to keep up to 20 combat brigades in Iraq until the end of the year, said Bryan Whitman, a spokesman for the U.S. Defense Department.
Whitman said that the 10 combat brigades, all active-duty Army troops, had received their orders to deploy from August to December of this year.
