Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: Whose Kids are being Killed?

Posted on March 17, 2022

The expression “whose ox is being gored” comes from Scripture, Exodus:21:35. Nowadays, the phrase is often used in politics to describe how different people in similar circumstances are often treated quite differently depending on the relative “importance” of the individuals.

Important people, which often means rich and powerful people, get better treatment by society and government than those in poorer circumstances. Why? Because the rich and powerful are better positioned to reward those that help them than the poor. It’s not a particularly noble phenomenon, but it reflects human nature and reality.

One would hope that this form of discrimination would not apply to children who are not old enough to be responsible for their circumstances especially in war. Not so. There is a huge difference in how children, babies even, are treated depending upon who they are and who killed them.

Let’s compare Ukraine 2022 and Gaza 2014.

The war in Ukraine started February 24, 2022. I watched a significant amount on TV. Saw the footage of buildings being destroyed residential, commercial, mixed use. It looked like a horror show. Whole portions of ten story buildings falling to the ground. Continue Reading…..

  1. Doug’s tweet on the right column about the “Last train out of Russia”
    is poignant.

    I have an “unsettled” feeling about our current state of affairs concerning,
    especially, Russia-Ukraine. The main stream press, left and right, are falling
    all over themselves in their love for Zelensky and Ukraine.

    Are they that good, are the Russians that bad. World War II was a long time ago.
    As was the Holocaust. Nobody did more to defeat Hitler and stop the Holocaust than
    the Russians. In the process they lost 8-10 million soldiers many lost in driving the Nazis
    out of present day Ukraine.

    Let me repeat the number 8-10 Million Soldiers. That’s an enormous loss of life. By comparison
    the USA has lost about 1 Million soldiers in all our wars from the Revolutionary War to our most recent
    losses exiting Afghanistan.

    What I find unsettling is the almost unanimity of opinion that we should do anything Ukraine
    wants us to do to assist them. No limits.

    Not everybody is on board….completely. Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard have expressed reservations.

    I don’t know where this will end up. The Russians are supposed to be good at Chess.
    We’ll see.

  2. It’s Unanimous.

    Wolf Blitzer and Jake Tapper, both of CNN, agree Putin is a
    “war criminal.”
