Murder by shrapnel bomb and drone is part of the NATO-USA policy. The media tells NOTHING of the HORRORS in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Syria...and the HAARP weapon that sits off the coats of N Korea.

"During invasions and initial periods of occupation, the U.S. military dropped cluster bombs in Afghanistan and fired cluster munitions in Iraq. The State Department position is: “Cluster munitions can often result in less collateral damage than unitary weapons, such as a larger bomb or larger artillery shell would cause, if used for the same mission.” Perhaps the bomber(s) who stuffed nails and ball bearings into pressure cookers for use in Boston had a similarly twisted rationale.

But don’t expect explorations of such matters from the USA’s daily papers or commercial networks — or from the likes of NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered,” or the PBS “NewsHour.” When the subject is killing and maiming, such news outlets take as a given the presumptive moral high ground of the U.S. government."
