President Obama and the Central American Child Refugees

                In a television interview yesterday, I heard President Obama declare that Central American refugee children will be returned home, and literally advise children’s parents to learn to keep them at home.  How cold.  Many of the children have no parents; they have been killed notably in the Honduran war zone.  No more “give me your poor, your huddled masses (of children no less) yearning to breathe free.”  Worse, the CIA was the major drugs for arms operator that devolved into continuing open warfare in Central America.  The United States has been the dominant warrior in the region since the overthrow of the Guatemalan government in 1954.  And now our president pens up and proposes to deport children fleeing from the war zone we created.
                Today the president is asking Congress to appropriate a half billion dollars to further arm “the moderates” in Syria.  And refuses to halt the reign of drone terror in the name of fighting terrorism.
                When it comes to international relations, I’m thinking this president will go down in history as heartless.  It’s a sad thought.            Love and peace, hal
