Air strike kills 15 civilians in Yemen by mistake: officials

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/12/us-yemen-strike-idUSBRE9BB10O20131212?irpc=932

MY guess is no one will pay dearly for this on our side.

Sadly that’s what happens :/ Oh so we’re more powerful, okay I guess we can say what is morally right or wrong.

PURELY FOR DISCUSSION SAKE:

Why do you care about random Yemenese people?

@donjaime23, I don’t, but I have mirror neurons and empathy, so I feel bad when people die in such situations as a wedding, and therefore the illusion that I feel sad.

I would personally feel better if people never died in horrible, disturbing ways, because my own safety and satisfaction of life would be improved.

@ijesuschrist, People all over the world die in horrible & disturbing ways every minute of every day…do you feel sad for all of them?

@donjaime23, Ignorance is bliss you big silly willy.

@ijesuschrist, Agreed (about the big silly willy part, not that ignorance is bliss.) So, just to dig a little more if I may, IF by saying “ignorance is bliss” you mean that you stay (relatively) happy by ignoring the fact that thousands globe-wide die horrible, miserable deaths every minute of every day, WHY then would you tune into this particular incident? Why not ignore it too?

@donjaime23, The irony of it is striking. Its a bit too dramatic for Earth: The Sitcom, though.
