BullBearMS: cryinoutloud: /just a graph, I have no opinion about it.Gee, I wonder why so many of those killed are called "militants"?ndeed, newspaper revelations last week about the "kill list" showed the Obama administration defines a militant as any military-age male in the strike zone when its drone attacks.
cryinoutloud: umad: So life sucks, STFU and deal with it. Quite the patriot you are.And you're a dick on every subject, either trolling or you're just a natural asshole.
BullBearMS: Here's the story of one of the "militants" killed by the US as told by a journalist who had chanced to meet him when he came to protest drone killings of civilians.
Champion of the Sun: It's kinda weird that only a tiny minority of the populace has a problem with this. Not even 10% of us can get upset about the CIA using flying death robots with no oversight. I guess we're either incredibly stupid, or desensitized to killing. Probably both
Anonymous Bosch: For the people biatching about how it's "okay when Obama does it":No, not really. But as stated above there's a farkton more blame for Bush here. We, as a country, wouldn't be doing this if a certain War On An Abstract Concept didn't get started on the first place. But that would've required an atmosphere in 2001-3 wherein actual debate could've occurred, instead of the swarm of chest-thumping, flag-waving idiots we had terrifying politicians into rubber-stamping shiat like the Patriot Act.My father had the gall to tell one of his co-workers that he thought the war in Iraq was a bad idea, and the response he got was that he obviously just wanted to see Americans die.Should Obama or the CIA be doing this? Is it moral, ethical or legal? fark NO. But you conservative assholes let the genie out of the bottle, and people tend not to give power back, as you might have noticed from the umpteenth extension of warrantless wiretapping recently. You didn't just condone torture and murder and the destruction of civil liberty, you cheered for it. And some of you are still out there cheering for it as long as Obama doesn't get the credit. You ceded any pretense of moral authority the United States of America ever had because you got scared..
halfof33: I like it when a guy who has been here a month starts right out with the ad hominems.So it is not a problem that the Administration is assassinating people in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia?Ok then.
Anonymous Bosch: For the people biatching about how it's "okay when Obama does it":
halfof33: WhoopAssWayne: I'm sure all the fark liberals screaming for a Bush war crimes trial will just happily add Obama to the list, right? Right? Yeah, that's what we thought.Some guy was crowing last night about Bush being a "war criminal" and how he couldn't visit certain countries without fear of getting arrested, and I pointed out that many countries aren't particularly happy with The Administration's use of hunter/killer drones, and how is that working out for you./hypocritical slurpers gonna slurp
GameSprocket: stirfrybry: It's not bad when liberals do it. Just get over it. Republican bad, liberal good. It's simple as that. If you have trouble with it, too bad, you're probably racist anyway.Just gonna phone it in, huh?
