A Sad Day For Russia

This just breaks my heart. I watched the coverage on NBC Nightly News, tears welling up in my eyes.

People who use children as hostages, and subsequently execute them, are not fighting for the freedom of their people. They are terrorists, preying on the most vulnerable members of society. They are not interested in a resolution to the conflict, they simply want to inflict as much pain as possible. Killing innocent children is not a noble way to defend your cause, and I have no respect or sympathy for the plight of those who employ such methods.

Sometimes I just fucking hate the world we live in.
