AverageAmericanGuy: Meanwhile, the Navy Seals and Army Rangers are considered heroes.

Perspective is an interesting thing.

Murdering civilians is totally similar to killing terrorist fighters in a declared conflict in accordance with the laws and rules of war.

Annual Performance Review

Employee: Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo
Career: Mid Level Assassin (Central Region)

Professionalism: 90%
Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo is a professional assassin that has performed over 800 operations. He is well liked by his colleagues and can be called upon to perform extra killings when required.

Appearance: 90%
Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo is often covered in blood because of his job requirements but he attempts to clean himself up whenever possible and portray the organization in a positive light. If he is returning to the office to catch up on paperwork and he has blood or brain parts on his person, he uses the employee entrance as to not offend potential customers or business associates. On his "Non Kill" days, he dresses professionally and reflect positively the business culture that we have worked hard to present.

Education: 95%
Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo has continued to learn different ways to kill. He shows inventiveness in difficult situations; i. e. he once strangled a person when his weapon jammed. He is always reading about new killing methods. He is willing to share this knowledge with his co-workers and victims.

Attitude: 40%
Sadly, this is a minor setback for Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo. He no longer shows the zest for killing that he had in years prior. While he does the job, he is often morose about it as if killing didn't matter to him as much as it used to. We have implored him to take a vacation but he declines citing work and backlog. We hope that this is a minor setback for Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo and that he soon regains his enjoyment of killing.

Recommendations: Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo should continue in his present career path but given a lighter workload until his professional attitude improves. If possible, he should be given a challenge that allows him to rediscover his love for killing. Maybe blow up a busload of nuns. Something easy yet satisfying. At this time, we don't want to promote Jesus Ernesto Chavez Castillo but will review this option at a future date. We recommend a 4.3% raise and giving him an assigned parking spot at Corporate if one is available. If not, maybe he can kill someone who has an assigned spot. That would certainly put the brass back in to his bullets.

Please note that I do not have an assigned parking spot but Bob in Accounting does.

Yeah, those terrorists at weddings enjoying their BBQ goat. So glad we have bad men to protect us from them.

Show me someone in the Middle East barbecuing, and I'll show you someone who's grilling. I guarantee they have not grasped the difference, when most American don't either.

Sorry for getting off topic, you can go back to discussing the latest 800+ folks killed in Jesus's name.

Boojum2k: hardinparamedic: Even if we blanketly legalized every drug in the United States for recreational use, there is no other way this ends other than in violence.

My off-the-cuff plan: Work with the Mexican President to set up an operation, tell him we need Mexican police to watch the cartel's various headquarters for a possible Mexican SWAT-style move.
Put the Mexican SWAT types on some training mission far far away. Make sure this leaks.
When the various cartel's leadership comfortably gather as they know the raid won't happen any time soon (thanks to the info being fed to them by the police assigned to watch them, along with many of those off for training), hit their compounds with drones until they're flat.

There are some flaws to that, I admit, but it might work.

If it gets legalized in the states, then there are no smuggling routes to fight over, also no money to fund a fight. If you kill off the leaders, then it just creates a power vacuum for those left alive to fill. How do they decide who gets to come out on top? More violence.

Public Savant:Well, okay.

There is absolutely nothing flawed or wrong with your gross oversimplification of things.

Bless your heart.

Want me to get you a towel? Your brain is dripping out all over that strawman.

Unfortunately, he does have a point. Most of the casualties from our counter-terrorism operations in recent years outside of occupied zones have been either civilian, children, or unconfirmed as to whether or not they're combatant or non-combatant.

Now, I'm NOT saying that drones are a bad thing. I think they're the way to go, but we HAVE to have a human intelligence element on the ground to mark and confirm before we start launching Hellfires at white specs as displayed by a shoddy and rather low resolution FLIR sensor with hand ground optics for focus and collimation. Our drones need to improve, our intelligence needs to improve, and our intelligence networking and confirmation needs to improve before we can be in the right for using pilots 3500-8000 miles away to pull the trigger instead of operators on the ground within a mile who can confirm intelligence.

It's a shiatty world out there, yeah, but we don't need to be flinging explosives willy-nilly and making even more enemies.

A screen writer should sit down with this guy and have him tell his story. This would be a great movie.

Jesus Ernesto (El Camello) Chavez Castillo said he agreed to testify against his former boss because "I feel I did the right thing, since I did so much wrong,"

I'm sure a troubled conscience was the reason and not the deal prosecutors made with him.
