arethereanybeernamesleft: vygramul: Not anymore. One of Obama's first executive orders.

His second was to accelerate drone attacks. No need for torture. They're dead, Jim.

For the life of me, aside from Obamacare, I don't know why Republicans don't like Obama. He's George Bush, with results and a larger kill list.


They should like Obamacare, too. Because they're the ones who proposed it - conservatives like Heritage Foundation, not just one-time moderates like Romney.

"Also, the Bush administration carried out fewer targeted killings: Of the 336 attacks as of July 2012 in Pakistan, 284 have occurred under Obama. Bush officials were better able, therefore, to suppress discussion. Also, human rights advocates had their hands full with the more visible problems of the Bush era: torture, Guantanamo Bay and military commissions. A number of them then joined the Obama administration; rather than condemn targeted killing as the violation of international law that it is, some former critics are defending it, presumably as part of their job."

Oh, good. I was afraid we'd have to deal with a double standard.

Hell, the technology's been there since 1967.

That's so cute. A woman writing about what's legal and illegal about war. It's like watching those adorable monkeys ride those tiny bicycles.

Drones are killing people? Why exactly aren't we just nerve stapling them?


Because they need you. They look up to you.

Kurmudgeon: James F. Campbell: This is one of those issues divides real liberals from party-line Democrats.

I remember the people jumping from the towers on 9/11. I'm a liberal and a Democrat.
I also remember people dancing in the streets over there.

steelkidney: James F. Campbell: Mmm. This should be an interesting thread. This is one of those issues divides real liberals from party-line Democrats.

And that's the problem isn't it.

I've got a cousin in Pennsylvania that's about as liberal as it gets- pretty darn disgusted with a lot of the current administration, as much as she wanted to support it. Just like I was pretty darn unhappy with "W", as much as I wanted him to be a good president. Funny thing is how much we agree on how things *should* be, despite party alignment (that's quickly eroding for both of us due to extreme jackassery in Washington) and the couple of philosophical differences that we have.


Yeah, I bet someone who's "about as liberal as it gets" is itching to go out and vote for Mitt Romney.

meanmutton: GAT_00: When a Republican does it. Duh.

It appears as though you have it backwards: When a Democratic President does it, they're perfectly fine, even if they're killing American citizens without a trial. If it was a Republican President doing it, there would be significantly more opposition to it.


It's okay if we shoot people. We've got a black president.
