    Its tons of fun to play whodunnit.

    We just need to remember that's all we're doing here.

    Nah my friend. Most of the US(including this forum) will move on to another issue. One innocent kid will still be dead and two parents will still be in mourning. There isn't much that is right about that.

    Sort of like Kony?
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    The same way. Most people are too stupid to realize Kony is just a player in a really big chess game. They'll stop caring when they have to do more than watch YouTube videos.

    Maybe to put this in another context would be helpful.

    Person A is doing 70 in a 25 zone.

    He runs a stop sign and t-bones a car that ALSO ran the stop sign but was travelling 25 mph.

    Driver B dies.

    BOTH ran the stop sign, but driver A was speeding.

    Responsibility is APPORTIONED in such cases isn't it?

    And would make driver A MORE responsible. Right?
