Compare & Contrast

United States: Constitution, Article 3, Section 3:
The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.
This provision is "a declaration that the children should not bear the iniquity of the fathers." Wallach v. Van Riswick, 92 U.S. 202, 210 (1875).

The Taliban in Afghanistan: London Times June 11th:
A seven-year-old boy was murdered by the Taleban in an apparent act of retribution this week. Afghan officials said that the child was accused of spying for US and Nato forces and hanged from a tree in southern Afghanistan.

Daoud Ahmadi, the spokesman for the provincial governor of Helmand, said that the killing happened days after the boy’s grandfather, Abdul Woodod Alokozai, spoke out against militants in their home village.

Mr Ahmadi said: "His grandfather is a tribal elder in the village and the village is under the control of the Taleban. His grandfather said some good things about the Government and he formed a small group of people to stand against the Taleban. That's why the Taleban killed his grandson in revenge."
Question: Why do some lefties (not all) still confuse civilized coalition soldiers with actual baby killers?

Answer: Because they're anything but liberal.
