Yemen genocide continues, aided by American bombs. Shameful!

Tears for Sandy Hook are appropriate;
 those who defend the guns that were used in the the slaughter
of Sandy Hook's children
 are shameful.

Tears are appropriate for
Yemen's children,
killed by bombs dropped by Saudi and
 manufactured in the United States. 
America's slaughtering bombs are 
delivered  to the Saudi 
with the certain knowledge ho they will be used.
And no tears.

Tao Te Ching (Dao De Jing) by Lao Tzu   
He who has killed multitudes of men should weep for them with the bitterest grief.

Chapter 31
Tao Te Ching (Dao De Jing) by Lao Tzu
Create Don't Destroy, Avoid Weapons, Stop Wars, Delight Not in Warfare, Be Peaceful, Avoid Wars,  偃武  

"Now arms, however beautiful, are instruments of evil omen, hateful, it may be said, to all creatures. 
Therefore they who have the Tao do not like to employ them.
The superior man ordinarily considers the left hand the most honorable place, but in time of war the right hand. 
Those sharp weapons are instruments of evil omen, and not the instruments of the superior man.
He uses them only on the compulsion of necessity. 
Calm and repose are what he prizes; victory by force of arms is to him undesirable. 
To consider this desirable would be to delight in the slaughter of men.
He who delights in the slaughter of men cannot get his will in the kingdom.
On occasions of festivity to be on the left hand is the prized position; on occasions of mourning, the right hand. 
The second in command of the army has his place on the left.
The general commanding in chief has his on the right; his place, that is, is assigned to him as in the rites of mourning. 
He who has killed multitudes of men should weep for them with the bitterest grief.
The the victor in battle has his place according to those rites."
-   Translated by James Legge, 1891
