Maybe I'm Simple-Minded

I grew up on a poultry farm, back in the day when the chickens were out on a range with little houses in which they could roost at night. Not often, but once or twice, a local dog would decide he had a taste for chickens and take to killing a few every night. There was only one solution to that sort of destructive behavior: The dog would have to be put down.

So what are we to do with this:
Iraqi schoolgirls taking their midterm exams were the target of a mortar attack Sunday morning that killed five of the students and wounded 21, an Iraqi interior ministry official said.

Insurgents fired at least three mortar rounds at the al-Khulood girls secondary school in western Baghdad, the official said.

The girls who were killed were between the ages of 12 and 14 years.
And while you're pondering my simple-mindedness, explain to me why killing such animals has, according to John Kerry, made the United States an "international pariah?"

Killing mad dogs who kill school girls is behavior so beyond the bounds of reason that . . . . that what, John?
