If an enemy sniper is shooting from a building with 200 innocent civilians in it, that building is a valid military target and can be blown-up. That is what war is and if that makes you uncomfortable, don't start any wars to begin with.

RyogaM: Given his impassioned opposition to the use of drones, I have to assume he will not be voting for Romney, and would still be opposition if Romney did win.


This would be the only reasonable response to people that opposed to drone strike IMHO.

MyRandomName: bugontherug: MyRandomName: But I can link you to many groups who were loud about drone strikes prior to O taking office.

So link some. Difficulty: if the group is found to have opposed drone strikes post O taking office, you must admit that you are without value as a human being, and then shoot yourself in the head.

Deal?

Okay, you need to learn how to farking read. I said they were loud, not that they completely stopped.

http://thecoloradoobserver.com/2012/05/anti-war-left-mum-on-obama-dro n e-attack-policy/

I know reading is hard, but the level of outcry from the anti-war and anti-drone groups have decreased since O took office. Sorry you are too farking retarded to notice this. So how about you take your own stupid advice.


"The page you requested cannot be found."

You have now admitted you can find no group which opposed drone strikes before Obama took office, and which ceased to oppose them after Obama took office. You are without value as a human being. Suck it.

MyRandomName: I truly believe that the fact they were used to oppose GOP politics were a major player in the furor they had. Their numbers have been numbed now that one of "their guys" is in office. Sad but true.


So you're admitting that you're a moron who invents narratives to suit his own beliefs? Good to know. Kill yourself.

I'm as liberal as they come.

That billboard is tasteless and inappropriate, but the message is correct. The problem is, the same billboard could be used for essentially EVERY president we've ever had, just by changing the names.

US foreign policy isn't too concerned with the deaths of non-American people. We, as a country, simply don't care if foreigners die, unless they are celebrities.

I think the US isn't alone in this, but since we have our fingers in everybody's business, it makes us look more heartless than average.

MyRandomName: It's not necessarily from just O being in office, it could be simply a dying over time, but there is a lot less protests these days than there were. I used to see them weekly up until about 3 years ago.


It could also be because Obama has withdrawn substantially all of our troops from Iraq...

Alright. I can see it now. You're trolling. Nobody could possibly be this stupid.

Kadaffi had hired a lot of mercenaries from neighboring countries that are predominantly black, as opposed to libyans who are lighter skinned. Everyone in libya knew this, which made it open-season on anyone who was black. It was a bad scene.

MyRandomName: 1) I am not a single policy voter. Sorry. I am simply against drone strikes as they are currently used, especially on only suspects and not known terrorists. It's bad policy.


See, now you have made me amused. I assumed, given your truly impassioned and articulate opposition to drone strikes, that you actually cared. Actually, you only "care." You are opposed, but, hey, not so opposed that you won't vote for a guy to do exactly what you say you oppose. So, you are exactly the kind of Fark independent I find amusing. So full of passion but not full of passion enough to actually do anything about it.

As for me, I never opposed drone strikes, not when Clinton did them, back when they were not drone based but sub-based missile strikes, not when Bush did them, not when Obama does them, and not, if Romney gets the chance, even him.

And, again, since you are voting for Romney, my last line in my previous post stands as written:

Must be tough, being a Fark independent, seeing all your outrage expended on actions that will have no affect on the presidency.

Obama's policy of using drones to kill and maim children.

It's funny that conservatives started to care about killing and maiming children in foreign countries only after a Democrat became President isn't it?


Also, that self-described liberals/progressives stopped caring, revealing themselves to actually be mere partisans.
 
2012-07-29 02:42:53 PM
Let's see: Bush, a born-again Christian killed over 100,000 people for no apparent reason or gain then ran our economy off a cliff and conservatives considered him to be the second coming of Christ.

Obama, gets the job done with OBL and starts picking up the pieces of the rubble that Bush left behind while Republicans continually try to trip him and then scream hysterically that he isn't picking up their trash fast enough.

Oddly, Republicans, who claim that they are not a bunch of klansmen, have selected a cultist from a splinter religious group who claim that black people are Satan's agents and until recently would not allow black people to enter their cultist buildings.

Mitt Romney reminds me of that porker Smegma Whitman who claims to be a "job creator" and is currently off-shoring as many jobs at HP as she can. I'm sure their are a whole bunch of no-teeth trailer-trash republicans who would claim that Romney off-shoring jobs was just a way of creating more jobs here at home.

It's worse than that.

Obama is not everything we hoped that he would be. He's good but he compromises too easily He wastes too much time on the fallacy that he can find a middle ground with idiots. He supported DOMA and warrantless wire taps.

We're a bit bummed out.

But drone strikes still give us a better cost/benefit ratio.

God, you're right. There aren't any progressive groups or officials calling for the immediate cease of our involvement in killing poor brown people. I wish they'd start. It was terrible the way they all proclaimed it was fine a soon as the democrat was elected. That was a reprehensible thing to do.

You forgot to thank the theater that disarmed everyone at the door, making everyone in there a target for a nutcase.

yeah because what you want in a dark theater full of teargas and panicked people running around is untrained people shooting at muzzle flashes.

Wrong. What I would have wanted in that situation was someone to shoot the bad guy.

randomjsa: blastoh: So, you are.... 5? maybe 6? What is it with conservatives that everytime they are called out for doing something stupid, instead of trying to rationally explain their actions, they instead reply with "something something something liberals something?"

Do you just have no explaination for you actions or beleif systems? Is everything you do and beleive based off of liberals?
A clarification would be great here.

I observed how liberals behaved, the things they said, and the sort of images they liked to invoke while Bush was in office. I continue to watch how they behave even today. This is precisely the sort of thing liberals have engaged in since they lost in 2000 and it hasn't slowed down even slightly since then. As I said when Obama was inaugurated, I want every liberal to look back at how they've behaved over the last 8 years and think long and hard about it... Because that was the level we sunk to, and now you can expect no better from your opponents.

Of course, we've listened to the screeching about racism, or various other stupid things because admitting that Republicans dislike Obama for political reasons would mean having to admit that all that vitriol spewed by liberals while Bush was in office was also for political reasons. No more, no less. That's all it's ever been and ever will be about.

If this sort of thing bothers you, and it should, then liberals can start by cleaning themselves up because... You're the ones that brought us down here.

Weird that the right-wing has only recently decided the Afghan war is a terrible idea, especially now that troops are being withdrawn. For eight years it was about keeping America safe and hunting our enemies no matter WHERE they fled, but only in the last three years do I see demand to bring our boys home. Hm, something must've changed over the last three years.

What's your alternative? Vote Romney? Vote Green Party? Getting some, even a little of what you want out of a President is a pretty good thing. Romney isn't looking out for you. Green Party doesn't stand a chance (and never will).

I guess your choice right now is to vote for Obama and get some of what you want or vote for Romney and get nothing you want and a bunch you don't want. Seems a pretty easy choice to make to me.

Oh, the poor poor innocent precious pre-born fetuses!

Are those the "children" you really mean?


State Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-MO) on June 22, 2009, provided several "commentaries" to a press release from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services on a summer food program.
The program provides "food during the summer for thousands of low-income Missouri children who rely on the school cafeteria for free or reduced-price meals during the regular school year."
Davis, who serves as the chairwoman of the Missouri House Special Standing Committee on Children and Families, questioned whether the program is "warranted," and inquired --

Who's buying dinner? Who is getting paid to serve the meal? Churches and other non-profits can do this at no cost to the taxpayer if it is warranted.... Anyone under 18 can be eligible? Can't they get a job during the summer by the time they are 16? Hunger can be a positive motivator.

Republicans Choose Weapons for Foreigners Over Feeding Hungry American Children
Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 by Doug Marquardt

Sounds hyperbolic, but it's true. The Ryan budget that House Republicans passed last week cuts billions from vital social programs, including food aid for poor, American children. But the House panel that controls military spending recommended nearly $850 million additional dollars from American taxpayers to build a missile defense shield for Israel.



Your alleged "concern" for children is blatantly fake.

I would like to say this is not representative of Caldwell. I would like to say that in general, there people in Caldwell are more sensitive and intelligent than this. Sadly, I cannot. The sheer, blind hatred of the president in this area since the moment he was nominated is staggering. The day after the election I was overhearing people wishing for and discussing assassination. Now I avoid any political discussions with people here, you simply can't have them.

The billboard in question's been here for a very long time, always showing "humorous" statements about politics, most are patently forgettable. Over the last several years, it seems to have grown more rabid, and I have mentioned in other places my concerns about the sign's potential for danger. Then you see something like this...it's shameful. It's disgusting. And sadly, it's politics as usual.

Both Fast and Furious and the Afghanistan War are legacies of that nightmare we call "George Bush" that Obama have to work on fixing up. I don't think you understand the situation well. It's as if Obama came into the movie theater and started shooting at James Holmes and managed to take him down (maybe not out), you'd be calling Obama some whack-a-doo for shooting around in a very public location.
