Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: I seriously don't understand how President Drone Strike could be considered weak on foreign policy.

Obama'd probably pilot the damn things himself if they'd let him.


Who's saying they don't already?

The fighting in Libya is spreading into central Africa and otherwise peaceful nations are now being destroyed.

That's a worker, not a drone.

It's a weaver ant. Read the book Kill Decision, by Daniel Suarez.
The wikipedia page on weaver ants doesn't distinguish between "workers" and "drones", but does mention that "workers perform tasks that are essential to colony survival, including foraging, nest construction, and colony defense"

So, basically you missed the reference and your drone vs. worker comment is also incorrect.

You're right, I missed the reference. But that is a worker ant, as it is wingless, outside the colony structure and seems to be foraging. Drones neither forage nor defend the colony, and are generally winged until they find a queen with which to mate.

I think it would be helpful to nation relations if they could lay the bombs out on the ground and maybe schedule a cook-out for lunch and let people come together and eat and write "We're sorry" on the bombs and then ship them over and drop them. That just seems like a peaceful, purposeful lunch.

jakomo002: Libyans and Egyptians will never ever ever trust Americans. Ever. Americans might forget (or not know) that the US fully and vigorously supported both dictators (Mubarak and Gaddhafi) for decades before they were ousted. The people in those two countries still blame the US because they have memories.


Let's say we fly two drones into their tallest mosque (which we previously rigged with explosives), and pretend they are passenger planes. And then blame the attacks on 9/11 truthers. Maybe that'll change their hearts and minds.

The proposal for use of drones is expected to be approved shortly by the Pentagon and the White House, CNN's Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr reported. The official said the plan is for U.S. surveillance drones to gather the intelligence and then hand it off to the Libyans to strike the targets.
