The bombs used at the Boston Marathon, according to USA Today, weighed about 20 pounds each. They were packed with shrapnel to wound as many people as possible. President Obama called the bombing "an act of terror."
I believe every day President Obama commits his own acts of terror in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and who knows where else. He is following the evil path laid out by George Bush.
Since 2002, drones have attacked Pakistan about 350 times, killing over 4,000 people, according to Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.). In 2012 alone, U.S. and NATO drones fired over 500 Hellfire missiles into Afghanistan, according to the United Nations report on protection of civilians.
Hellfire missiles, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Boeing, contain 20 pounds of explosive and about 80 pounds of metal. If this isn't bad enough, there is a variety of Hellfire with an added "fragmentation sleeve" designed to produce more shrapnel. Our military claims that using drones minimizes civilian casualties, but using a 100-pound Hellfire missile seems intended to maximize casualties and terrorize the population.
Before we condemn acts of terror by others, we should stop committing our own acts of terror. If we stop killing other people's children, maybe, just maybe, they'll stop killing ours.
