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.


Actually, when you consider that "Bush's war" and "Fartbongo's war" are being conducted in completely different manners, and that the former was largely ineffective, but the latter is proving to be much more effective, its not all that funny. It actually makes perfect sense.

skullkrusher: our policy of guilty until proven posthumously innocent


A military strike is not a punishment. Casualties of such a strike have not been deemed "guilty" by anyone for any particular crime. I'm not sure how notions like that to the contrary have come about, but the sooner they die off, the better.

Cpl.D: Holocaust Agnostic: Cpl.D: skullkrusher: 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.

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.

Until that time, I'm very glad we have wise people like you to decide who is to childish to be allowed to live.

Do you warm up before doing that kind of stretch?


What stretch? You said it right there.

That wasn't terrorism. That was appeasement.

aspAddict: Biological Ali: 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.

Bush is openly criticized for the war efforts.
Obama is hailed as a savior for his.

The difference? Obama is giving out shiny stuff to the populace, so yay?


If by shiny stuff you mean food and housing, then yes, yay.

Bush went after the wrong guys. Obama didn't.


The men that brought down the towers are dead. Everthing since then smells like bullshiat.

If only people were as worried about collateral damage from indiscriminate drone strikes like they were when there was a republican in the oval office.

But as long as noones calling Obama out over his choice of arugala or dijon.....you know...the important criticisms to be outraged about.

that's sort of the point. If we're gonna treat terrorism like a law enforcement issue, executing people without trial probably isn't how it should be done in the US.
 
2012-11-08 02:11:57 PM  

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.

I can't speak for every liberal but I for 1 was outraged when W invaded the sovereign nation of Iraq that had no known ties to Al Kaida. I always thought the war in Afghanistan was justified and was in fact where we should have sent all of our troops . maybe you should talk to a liberal about their political views instead of just assuming what they are
 
2012-11-08 02:12:20 PM  
Ha Ha!

Gimme every teaparty dork who thinks Obama is a muslim Kenyan or women don't get pregnant when they're raped over these left wing nut jobs who think it's terrorism to kill Al Qaeda wherever they're found. Our whackos are infinitely smarter than the liebutturds.
 
2012-11-08 02:12:37 PM  

Metetron: Not outraged about killing terrorists, just outrage at the hypocricy. Peace prize, yeah right.


I might be confused about Nobel's selection process, but I'm pretty sure Obama didn't nominate himself for that.

I've never really understood the supposed "outrage" over the use of drones. The only difference between a drone and a regular aircraft is that the pilot for one is thousands of miles away sitting in an office while the pilot for the other is actually in the aircraft. Does it hurt less if you get blown up by a drone? Because I don't see the difference.

When German bases were bombed during WWII, were all the people killed "executed without trial"? 

This "executing without trial" notion makes no sense, and people really need to stop using that phrase in this context. These drone strikes aren't carried out as punishments for specific crimes that the targets are being accused of - they're being carried out to weaken an organization that the US is at war with.

The Bush administration tried to link Iraq and AQ but they were going in regardless due to the various UN resolutions Iraq violated....the AQ link if it materialized would have just been icing on the cake.

It was like banging a pregnant chick without a condom....it's not like she was gonna get extra pregnant.

...And fighting of course being unquestionably nessecary. Because people aren't "grown up" enough and need to be killed until the are. You and the politicians you support naturally being wholly fit to make the call of who gets bombed or no.

So, it's a joint Yemini-US operation, authorized by the Yemini, that took out several terrorists without injury or loss of life to any of our people. And Republicans are STILL trying the "unprovoked act of terror" card.

And I'm laughing at all of you idiots who are so farking terrified that Obama is going to start shooting missiles all over America. It's both sad and hilarious how you've convinced yourselves that Obama is some kind of Angel of Death just waiting for the right opportunity to declare war on us (is this because of the traitor that was taken out a couple of years ago over in the Middle East? Get over it, people who publicly denounce their citizenship, flee the country and join the group they support in active violence against their former home country are no longer citizens). Obama relaxed gun laws across the board and you're still pissing yourselves over the idea that he's gonna suddenly swoop down and carry off your precious boomsticks. Bush spent ten years, an obscene amount of money, and thousands of American lives attacking innocent countries with absolutely nothing to show for it. Obama authorized the successful takedown of bin Laden, helped remove Ghadaffi, and got our troops out of Iraq, all with minimal injury and death to our people, and our foreign relations have strengthened. Apparently that's unacceptable to you people, for whatever reason only you and God know.

You proved you were unhinged and psychotic the previous four years. Stop yourselves before you slip into complete insanity.

first of all, we are far removed from the carpet bombing cities mindset of WWII. Secondly, no, it wasn't "executing people without trial", it was killing the uniformed enemy. However, as we were told many times before BO took office, this is different. Irregular enemy, Geneva Conventions, etc etc etc. I didn't make up the new rules, I am just wondering why we suddenly don't need to follow them anymore
 
2012-11-08 02:26:56 PM  
I'm 100% sure that the people killed were terrorists, because a Democrat ordered it. If a Republican ordered it, I would be outraged about military operations without a declaration of war, civilian casualties, the millions of dollars spent, increased outrage by people in the Middle East, involvement in a long-running civil war that's none of our goddamn business, and imperialism in general. Thank goodness none of those things are a problem, because a Democrat is president.

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.
