As the father of a child, I find the Newtown massacre deeply disturbing and I hope it moves Obama to stand up to the NRA bullies. But the president has shown no such reluctance to pursue practices that result in the killing of innocent children in Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere.
You would think with all the hoopla surrounding the end of the U.S. "combat mission" in Iraq that Americans are no longer fighting a war there. Unfortunately, the reality is much different. Americans are still being killed in Iraq.
