Vectron: Obamabots: "Nothing to see here citizen."


Vectron: A U.S. drone strike targeted a group of "al-Qaida militants" on the outskirts of the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Wednesday night, killing at least three "terrorists", government officials said.

And we know they were terrorists because the goverment told us so.
You people are pathetic.


So vote republican? Not sure what you are trying to say here - plenty of people who voted for Obama don't agree with all of his foreign policy decisions or his stance on things like domestic wiretapping and Guantanamo Bay. The problem is, the republican camp looks a hell of a lot worse.

signaljammer: It reassures me that, like myself, you bastards are so un-central to our society that you have nothing better to do than this all day. Obama's gangsta foreign policy is disgusting to a moral mind. Many children have been killed by drones. Weddings and funerals have been attacked. First responders have been targeted in follow-up attacks. Reminds one of the IRA.


Obama is the worst thing to happen to weddings and funerals since that Lou Grant movie.

Smeggy Smurf: Funny how all these libs were biatching about Bush's war but applaud Fartbongo's war. Either be a chickenshiat or a bloodthirsty bastard. Quit farking around with the fence.


Liberals don't actually mind imperialism, war crime, and atrocity, but by God it had damned well better be efficient!

Obama gets thousands killed for pennies on the dollar and the pale:brown ratio is far more acceptable.
 
2012-11-08 01:49:50 PM  
But remember folks, despite being responsible for all these drone strikes, Obama had nothign to do with killing Bin Laden. The seals acted on their own and he was never, in anyway, involved. so says the right wing vets on my facebook at least.

What kind of emotion should I be feeling here

Terrorist is a buzz word. Our government uses far more terror tactics at home and abroad than any "evil" group of angry foreigners. 9/11 didn't "terrorize" us anywhere near as much as an 11 year war in Afghanistan does to those people.

I know you're just joking around there, but there do seem to be quite a few people ignorant (willfully or otherwise) of the fact that when "libs were biatching about Bush's war", it wasn't the war against al-Qaeda that they were referring to.


well, they were biatching about how that war was prosecuted. We got rid of torture, that's a good thing. We even made a pretty show of pretending we wanted to try major terror suspects in civilian courts in downtown Manhattan. Gitmo is still open, we've thrown away that silly "terrorism is a law enforcement issue for civilian courts to handle like embezzlement or jaywalking" idea and kept with our policy of guilty until proven posthumously innocent. Little has changed except who is cheerleading for what now

Cpl.D: Sure I was. We've got an enemy we've got to deal with on foreign soil. We get them with a drone strike. Drone strike isn't popular. What's the most common alternative we've exercised in this situation? I'm way sure it wasn't giving them five dollar gift cards to Hot Topic.


I'm not really all that opposed to the judicious use of drone strikes. Then again, I've never been all that opposed to the judicious use of drone strikes. More than I can say for some around these parts.

You must have been in a coma during Bush's presidency.


Nobody called Bush a "terrorist" for going after al-Qaeda. This is something that actually never happened. There's no way you could be remembering something like this happening - unless, perhaps, you're misremembering things that people said about Iraq.

Vectron: JDAT: Although I'm no fan of Obama, I applaud his use of our military technology to take these people out. I have to think that implanting the thought into terrorists around the world that they could be bombed at their exact location at any given time with no warning whatsoever has to be effective at some level.


I can't wait until the president unleashes this technology on DomesticTerrorists. The thought that tax cheats, speeders, preppers, gun hoarders will know they could be bombed at their exact location at any given time with no warning whatsoever has to be effective at some level.


100,000 federal workers are behind on their taxes, including 700 congressional employees. These workers owed more than $1 billion in unpaid taxes 2010, up from just under $600 million in 2004, according to the Internal Revenue Service - So, no, that's not gonna happen

I have no problem with this. Allows us to kill terrorists without ever having to step foot in a god-forsaken hellhole like Yemen, and somewhat reduces al-quedas ability to hide there. Keep it up.

Or maybe it's that extremists don't drive the democratic party's agenda. Or dictate administration policy. Another way to look at it is that blanket stereotypes are stupid and are just used to keep you ignorant.

It isn't terrorism when governments do it. It's an act of war.

Unless it is done with the permission of the other nation. Then it is just business as usual.
 
2012-11-08 01:54:48 PM  
Thanks for keeping us safe President Obama!
 
2012-11-08 01:55:02 PM  

imgod2u: This is a disturbing trend no matter how you think of it. I agree that drones are practical and that they often get legitimate targets that otherwise would have eluded capture but the idea of zero checks and balances kinda makes this Judge Dreddy.


Less accountability and more secrecy makes for a successful war.

In this respect, Obama has proven far more capable than Bush, because he can keep up the attacks while taking few losses.
Since reporters get pulitzers for covering soldiers rather than robots, the process can continue with minimal criticism.

The thing I like about drone strikes is less people in harm's way, less civilian casualties. As long as they do the targeting right and the local intel isn't on crack. I do think drone strikes are the best alternative. Until something better comes along, anyway. Or even better yet, people finally grow up and this shiat isn't necessary.

Well I can't fault you for that if you don't like any of the options, although I would recommend checking out some of the minority parties - there has to be someone there with a platform that is at least close to what you believe. And it would help get a third party on the ticket and in the debates and maybe break us out of this extremist deadlock.

OK,
Bush is criticised for his war in Iraq because Iraq was not involved in 9-11.
There has been no proven link between Iraq and Al-Qaida.
Obama, on the other hand, is attacking Al-Qaida, wherever they may be.

Incidentally, those calling Bush a terrorist are just as wrong as those calling Obama a terrorist.
It is not terrorism when governments do it, it is war.
Terrorism is war fought by NGOs and private citizens.
It is legally an odd area.
Are terrorists enemy combatants or criminals?
The Geneva Conventions and the Hague Conventions apply only to wars between nations.
Their creators did not envision the modern situation.

The worst Bush did was declare war without a legitimate Cassus Belli.
Oh, and make us look like idiots in front of all the other nations.
