The CSPA is a law against human trafficking. Section 404(a) says
… none of the funds ... may be issued to the government of a country … that recruit and use child soldiers.
Last Monday , Obama declared
" ... it is in the national interest of the United States to waive ... 404(a) of the CSPA.
IOW it's in the US interest to pay for enslaving children to fight wars. The same day it served the US interest to torture a child into confessing to crimes. I keep asking myself, is there some level of depravity our elected officials won't sink to, and they keep showing me: No, there isn't.
Obama specifically identified Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, and Yemen”, all among the worst countries that are enslaving children to be soldiers, and he supports this.
Take Yemen. “We” are planning to give 1.2 billion dollars--that's twelve hundred million--to a country with 23 million people. That's 52
Well fuck you Obama, for signing this, and for claiming to represent MY interests when you did it. Just who is this “United States” who wants to torture and kill children? It ain't me. It ain't anyone I know. It's not in my interest to send children to war. If that is what serves the interest of the “United States”, then I am not part of the “United States”, and I don't want to be part of it.
If the United States' interests are to enslave, torture and kill children, then fuck the United States.
