War is no laughing matter for moms

by blondesense liz

Remember when bush joked at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in 2004 as he pretended to look for the WMD's around his podium? No one really thought it was funny... certainly not the families of those who were killed in Iraq... needlessly.

'Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere."

I wonder how many moms were grieving at that time?

Now obama may have topped that by quipping at last weeks White House Correspondents Association Dinner that he'd send unmanned drones after the Jonas Brothers if they hit on his daughters.

"Jonas Brothers are here, they're out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don't get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I'm joking?"
I wonder how many moms are grieving today? What about all the Pakistani moms who were blown up? Or their kids? Husbands? Families? Best friends? Hundreds of innocent civilians in Pakistan have been killed by unmanned drones. The drone pilots are adolescents stationed in California who get to go home to their families after work.
