For a while now I have had this fantasy, that a bill like the following would be brought up by some Barbara Lee or Dennis Kucinich type lawmaker:
The family of any child under the age of 3 who is killed, whether intentional or unintentional, during combat operations of the United States, shall get a face-to-face formal apology from a representative of the United States Armed forces responsible for such act, as well as receiving $1,000,000 in compensation.
I want to see that debated on the floor of the House. I want to see lawmakers vote "no" that the children murdered in these wars of ours do not deserve apology and compensation. I want to see some lawmaker saying things like "Gee, don't you think that maybe we could make it 4 years old?" or "Is a non-American child's life really worth THAT much?".
The men in uniform would be sweating bullets if the area of responsibility started escalating...
