They have uranium apparently.

Weren't they suffering a world class famine in recent memory that we held hands to save them from?

Old "electricians working on the Death Star" debate.  While I agree with a need to minimize/avoid civilian casualties, but if you're knowingly hanging out with militants/terrorists, then you might want to question your judgement of whom you have over for dinner.   It's not like the US blowing up guys like this left and right is a new or unknown thing.

The target was described by the official as a "senior leader" affiliated with al Qaeda and Al-Shabaab, al Qaeda's affiliate in Somalia.

Wow.  Looks like that whole "Al Quaeda has successfully struck against the great satan, surely this is a sign that all of us militant/terrorist groups should stop fighting and unite under their banner" idea isn't working out so well.

// By which I mean that even though they are still a somali operation that doesn't give a shiat about anything else, affiliating with Al Quaeda just earned them an explosive-driven leadership reorganization where, had they stayed independent, we'd just ignore them like we have every other terrible international crime being committed in Africa.

dbrunker: [img.fark.net image 670x627]


Wow, that poor guy.  It must have almost broken his brain to take an entirely legitimate complaint with firm historical precedents undeniably indicating abuse of power and still make it sound like the usual mad bullshiat his comic usually spews.

Though I think this takes me off the fence between thinking he might be serious and thinking he's parodying right-wing arguments to make fun of how terrible he thinks their logic is.  That  has to be intentional mockery, to straight-face that he'd have to be harder-core than Jack Chick.

I'm sure Obama thought that bombing Somalia was the perfect way to disrespect you and your hack artist friends and not because he's the farking President of the United States who thought it was a good time to erase a senior terrorist leader off the face of the planet.

Because Al-Qaeda's operatives work on a schedule to make sure they're in firing range during your pop music circlejerk shows on TV. And Obama clearly controls the media and goes out of his way to inconvenience your friends in the music business just to spite you.

Hasn't President Obama  won two or three Grammies for audio books?

The man has a soothing voice.

Maybe he'll "bust a rhyme" and the SOTU,Tuesday night, with Biden beatboxing behind him.  That would be different.

I don't think Biden could be black enough to beatbox.


Well, this is where the Black Congressional Caucus needs to jump in.  They've got all of Monday and most of Tuesday to beat some farking rhythm into him.  It's not impossible!  Well, then again.....but, they have to try, dammit!

He did accept it. He should have turned it down and said the real honor would be if you're still willing to give me this award in 8 years.

You can't be a true humanist and the president of the US. That's the joke of it all.



EXTRA EXTRA Obama disrespects Nobel Peace Prize! Spurns international expression of good will towards America! Why does this elitist think he's too good to accept an award from this esteemed organisation!? Some say it is because Muslim Law would not allow it! Others say he is a Communist who wants to outlaw any recognition of one person above another! Is it possible that the Nobel folks are too religious for this Atheist!? Or does he...

2014-01-27 01:54:36 AM  
This is just going after Al Shabaab who is behind that big Kenyan mall attack a few months back.  Since we can't exactly send in the FBI and grab them in Somalia, it makes sense to try and pick them off with a drone.  We did try a seaborne raid by SEALs awhile back, but they aborted instead of causing collateral damage (and got away without injury).  Nothing really to see here and it's good for Obama to use the tools in his arsenal to remove threats to ourselves and our allies.

A drone is better option than a pilot or a team on the ground.  If you lose a drone, it is a couple million, you start losing guys and it can lead to a full scale involvement costing billions and trillions and numerous lives. Unfortunately all targets are not as drone friendly as terrorists in remote lawless areas. Drones can breed hostility to be sure, but given the area of operations there isn't a whole lot of options when you identify a threat.  If you kill some terrorist family members and friends, you may make them hostile, but chances are they weren't exactly friendly to the US to begin with.  And anger against the US doesn't necessarily mean people will take up arms and chances are they won't be all that effective anyway so you are degrading their capabilities by removing effective members even if you create a few low level terrorists in the process.

Intervening in Somalia is good because it's a lawless shiathole where they have a documented history of being assholes and supporting regimes that have a documented history of trying to hurt us.

Intervening in Syria is bad because it's a first-world nation with a morally dubious government, but a government that is fully intact and friendly with other nearby states that are gnawing at the bit hoping we or Israel decide to intervene so they can launch World War 3. And any 'documentation' that the government alone was the only guilty party of using chemical weapons is dubious and should be treated with skepticism because it's the same bullshiat Colin Powell sold the Iraq War on. That and in many people's opinions, using chemical weapons is not enough grounds to invade a sovereign territory otherwise we'd have had to invade our own allies for doing the same thing, and we'd have to shut down the CIA for helping Saddam Hussein use chemical weapons on his own people and on the Iranians during the Iran-Iraq War. So it's not like our hands were clean, even though Obama tried selling action on Syria based entirely on America needing to be the moral authority on the matter aka playing world police all over again, this time in a new country.

If Obama intervenes, it is bad and he should not have intervened. If Obama fails to intervene, it is bad and he should have intervened. If Obama asks us to decide what to do, it is bad and he is an indecisive and shirking his responsibilities as a leader. If Obama doesn't ask, it is bad and he is a would-be emperor.  If Obama now does whatever we already said he should do, back when he wasn't doing it, it is bad and he is trying to make us look bad.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: tinfoil-hat maggie: Gyrfalcon: So if we intervened in Syria it would be good; but if we intervene in Somalia, it's bad. Or is it that intervening in Syria is for the right reasons (to kill Assad) but intervening in Somalia is for the wrong reasons (to kill some nameless al-Shabab leader)?

I'm so behind on the talking points anymore.

No it's only bad if we can't build McDonald's and and Coca-Cola plants. Oh and don't forget let them make Nike's for $2 a day.

If Obama intervenes, it is bad and he should not have intervened. If Obama fails to intervene, it is bad and he should have intervened. If Obama asks us to decide what to do, it is bad and he is an indecisive and shirking his responsibilities as a leader. If Obama doesn't ask, it is bad and he is a would-be emperor.  If Obama now does whatever we already said he should do, back when he wasn't doing it, it is bad and he is trying to make us look bad.

That's a neat infographic. So the overwhelming majority of all deaths were neither children nor civilian, meaning they were adult enemy combatants. And the vast majority of those have come under Obama's reign, as adult civilian deaths decreased, meaning it was Bush that killed most adult civilians with drones. What's even odder is that there is that category for children other than civilian - meaning there were enemy combatant children that had to be targeted.

Actually, we pretty much were. Certainly our hands weren't clean in our own hemisphere, and the oil and scrap embargo on Japan was hurting them plenty; but the US didn't have much to do with all the colonies in Asia or the dustup in Europe prior to WWII.

Or Lebanon or all over Central America. We spilled a lot of freedom in the '80s. Hell, we bombed Gaddaffi's house and tent. Clinton loved the Tomahawks. GHW Bush invaded farking Panama for Christ's sake, kidnapping their goddam president.

It's all allowed. Since the AUMF was a shiat bill that should never have become law, blowing up terrorists anywhere with whatever munitions the guy in charge wants to play with can be considered prosecuting that war on -ism.

Because Al-Qaeda's operatives work on a schedule to make sure they're in firing range during your pop music circlejerk shows on TV. And Obama clearly controls the media and goes out of his way to inconvenience your friends in the music business just to spite you.

That's a neat infographic. So the overwhelming majority of all deaths were neither children nor civilian, meaning they were adult enemy combatants. And the vast majority of those have come under Obama's reign, as adult civilian deaths decreased, meaning it was Bush that killed most adult civilians with drones. What's even odder is that there is that category for children other than civilian - meaning there were enemy combatant children that had to be targeted.


This needs to be further emphasized.

No, he's a peace prize winner.

/Now let's watch him kill more people.

You don't don't understaaaaand!

America has a duty to eliminate terrorists and radicals. Any dead civilians are just collateral damage, and they probably deserved it for being near or related to suspected terrorists.

It's a tough world, kid, and the ends justifies the means.


Under Bush, these were legit sentiments.
Under Obama, they're not.

Like I said. We get it, he's a democrat.

crab66: Is this the part where conservatives  pretend they don't like bombing brown people just because Obama did it?


FTFY.  Just like any other political thread.  If Obama does something, the GOP will always say it is bad and the rank and file will bleat the talking points here.  Nevermind they bleated against the exact same points when it was their guy sitting in the chair.

Me?  I don't like drone strikes for the same reason I don't like Stand Your Ground laws.  They are a smack in the face to our espoused ideals of due process.  They vest in a single person the power of judge, jury and executioner which is way too much power for one person to wield just on their say so.  And of course, dead men tell no tales so make sure you kill 'em good so they can't tell their side of the story.

Most of it has been facile, bland, the same rounded words and rounded sentiments, the same soft accusations and excuses. I see him enjoying the sound of his voice as the network newsman leans forward eagerly, intently, nodding at the pearls, enacting interest, for this is the president and he is the anchorman and surely something important is being said with two such important men engaged."

Like their "valid" reason to attack China?  That's why we were helping China build an airforce in the first place.  Because of Japanese atrocities there that made the european holocaust seem civilized.

1) Japan slaughters and tortures 3 million chinese civilians
2) U.S decides to help China build an airforce

Your interpretation -> Japan has a "valid" reason to attack the U.S!!!!  derp.

I have a mild complaint about drone strikes, in that in my opinion there is an increased chance for civilian casualties. I also am mildly upset about bombing things in other countries without getting their permission first, though I also feel this complaint is irrelevant in cases like Somalia.

That being said, as I pointed out with that nice graph up-thread, I do understand that the vast majority of drone strikes only hit legitimate targets. Of my list of complaints about Obama, the drone issue is near the bottom.

Before you cheer the attack on Somalia, at least google something first:

Somalia has resorted to piracy because Chinese fishing boats are illegally fishing in Somali waters... and not just illegally fishing, but massively overfishing, causing population collapse.

Without a navy, Somali could not protect is own fisheries, and so that central pillar of their economy collapsed.

This.  Most of the "scandals" being trotted out by the right wing propaganda machine fall apart once you scratch an inch below the surface which is why they've been squealing with glee when the ACA website wasn't working.  OMG!  An actual failure!  Sure it was up and running within a month or so but finally they had something they could (sorta) pin on Obama.

So what you are saying is  after they bombed us, we started fighting back.  Okay.

What I'm saying is that we started building air fields and training pilots a year and a half before December 7th. We would have started bombing them in the middle of December whether or not they bombed Pearl Harbor. Attack was imminent, which gave Japan a valid reason to bomb Pearl Harbor.

That couldn't possibly have been because Japan had already been in a war in China, occupied Manchuria for 5 years ,and was saber rattling about the rest of their "Economic Co-Prosperity Sphere".  No.  It was all American paranoia that caused the Japanese to bomb Pearl Harbor.

I think that the moneyed interests that Iran had in Iraq after Saddam was out of the way kind of fostered Iran's change of heart regarding Iraq. But why not, considering it was Iraq that attacked Iran to start the Iran-Iraq War to begin with. It has also been shown that the more financially stable and interconnected a country's economies are brings the odds of conflict down to nil. So the prospect of Iran and Iraq increasing their stability and decreasing their odds of wanting to engage in conflict which would interfere with that a good thing. Saudi Arabia is a good comparison to show us how that works. They are financially stable and they haven't started shiat with anybody in a long time. Yes, I remember where the 9/11 hijackers mostly came from. And they do play with the politics of neighboring countries, but what international power broker doesn't?

lots of people had that opinion before they bombed pearl harbor.

You can't possibly believe that we were minding our own business up until Pearl Harbor.

but you might be the most retarded farker i have run across since my very first account back in 2003.
