Newtown kids v Pakistanis: what explains the disparate reactions?


First of all,my warm condolences to the grieving families.My question is not intended to offend anybody here,but rather to know what explains the disparate reactions.Most of the world's media,which has rightly commemorated the children of Newtown,either ignores Obama's murders or accepts the official version that all those killed by the U.S Drone Strikes in June 2012 are 'militants.The children of north-west Pakistan, it seems,are not like American children. They have no names, no pictures,no memorials of candles and flowers and teddy bears.They belong to the other: to the non-human world.

    What it doesn t make any sense to me,with all respect to the grieving families, is that why he’s crying over the recent tragic deaths of children in America but is unmoved over the deaths of those who become victims to his drone program in Pakistan.

    Do such people as "JThomp42" think that the drone strategy is viable? Could they not care less about dispatching drones to kill people who are innocent victims, writ large in the absence of a trial? Should other countries use drones this way too?

    But if the tables were turned, wouldn't Americans do the same?
