We Interrupt Your Outrage

I know that we, as patriotic Americans, are all consumed with sorrow over those Eye-ranians who've been slaughtered by the Evil Regime in Tehran. (You know: the same Eye-ranians that we'd be happy to convert into radioactive vapor any time the Israelis instruct us to.) And I know that we patriotic Americans are thrilled by our very own President Rainbow Brite sternly admonishing those Evil Tehran Regime guys to leave off mistreating their own subjects. But just have a quick glimpse at this, before it slides completely down the memory hole:
At least 45 people have died in a missile strike by a US drone aircraft in Pakistan, officials there have said.

The people killed in South Waziristan region had been attending a funeral for others killed in a US drone strike earlier on Tuesday.

Intelligence officials said at least 45 people had been killed and dozens more injured in the later strike, when two missiles were fired.

But a local official told BBC News the death toll was more than 50.
Of course, these are Pakistani wogs, not Iranian wogs. But that's not the real distinction; after all, a wog's a wog, right? No, the difference is that we snuffed the Pak wogs, and the Evil Tehran Regime snuffed some Iranian wogs. And any wog we snuff has it coming. Either that, or it's just regrettable but necessary collateral damage, war is hell, can't make omelets without breaking a few etc., etc., blah blah blah.

Alrighty, then. We are dismissed to our normal vital business, which this week seems to be "Jon and Kate Plus Lawyers."

I wonder how the "patriotic Americans" (as you put it)would feel about YouTube if Pakistanis started posting video of women bleeding to death after a drone attack.

Why, we'd say, war ain't pattycake, or maybe, it's a shame them tally-bans made us do this by using civilians as human shields, or hail, I bet she was a turr'st anyhow. In short, it wouldn't bother us a damn bit.

And then, come the next 9/11, we'll be all hurt and confused: why do they hate us? It must be because they hate our Freedumb™.

It's good to see that you're finally coming to understand that what the US does is always right. You might make patriot status after all.
