Holocaust Agnostic: 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.


Allow me to rephrase my statement in the manner to which you are accustomed.

ShawnDoc: Was he supposed to give the terrorists a few days off just because he won re-election?


Yes. George Bush waited almost a year before he attacked the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and some field in the middle of nowhere.

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.

Sticky Hands: The ability of the other to strike back is part of it, however there is also the worry that the killing becomes too sanitized and "too easy". There are more than a few arguments that the shift to an all volunteer military made the USA more likely to adventuring all over the world. That fact that the troops sign up seems to make people case that much less, and since our press very rarely reports what is happening to the other side... well that's all the war we get. Killbots, well they just make this worse. yeah they hurt in that they eat up the treasury, at least the raw materials do, but for every one that goes down a replacement must be made, so it's nice job security, all at the minimal cost of some people no one here will ever know or see. Bonus? if there are no troops, there are also no embedded reporters, unless they are embedded on the other side, in which case... oops.

What too sanitized and "too easy" killing might look like.

Oh, and make us look like idiots in front of all the other nations.
But since stupidity is not a crime, he was never impeached.


Fark you and your cassus belli, if I frickin want to rule Pomerania from my seat in Poland you better believe I'm going to just hire the largest army I can to beat the ever loving crap out of you, you heathen bastards.

Biological Ali: skullkrusher: Biological Ali: 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.

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.

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.

This isn't war, this is pest control.

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.

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.

yeah, the good people at Antiwar.com were real fond of Bush. You sure told them.

I was channeling bush, instead of just an alternative? Uh, sure. Go with that. Have fun.

*handwaving to avoid asking yourself the hard questions!*


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.
