Obama’s War On Children

You have to wonder about a guy who wants to disarm US citizens but walks guns to Mexico and won’t fight child soldiers overseas

U.S. President Barack Obama issued a new executive order last week to fight human trafficking, touting his administration’s handling of the issue.

“When a little boy is kidnapped, turned into a child soldier, forced to kill or be killed — that’s slavery,” Obama said in a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. “It is barbaric, and it is evil, and it has no place in a civilized world. Now, as a nation, we’ve long rejected such cruelty.”

But for the third year in a row, Obama has waived almost all U.S. sanctions that would punish certain countries that use child soldiers, upsetting many in the human rights community.

Late Friday afternoon, Obama issued a presidential memorandum waiving penalties under the Child Soldiers Protection Act of 2008 for Libya, South Sudan, and Yemen, penalties that Congress put in place to prevent U.S. arms sales to countries determined by the State Department to be the worst abusers of child soldiers in their militaries. The president also partially waived sanctions against the Democratic Republic of the Congo to allow some military training and arms sales to that country.

Maybe he’s planning to hire the tots to provide security at our embassies.

    Just one more thing to add to the list of unbelievably damaging actions of this president that won’t be reported by the media. Consider that we’re one month out from the election and he’s been caught in a major cover-up, has refused to meet with world leaders during a crisis, has promised Russia that he will be more flexible after the election, has the worst economic numbers in recent history, has failed to deliver on virtually every promise he has made, with exception of a clusterfcuk of a health bill, has used the DOJ as his personal body guard, including Fast&Furious…..and yet, he’s still in this race. What the hell is wrong with people?
