    I’m sure the Libs will be calling for war crime tribunals………

    “We supported al-Qaida training camps. How many Americans died, we do not care.”

    Or we could just nuke them, like the extremists want. But how many civilians would die then?

    Why is it, do you think, “they” support al Qai’da?
    We in the West seem to think we know what “they” think despite not really knowing much about “them”. We, on the other hand, show “them” what we think of “them”: not much.
    Dehumanise them. Easy to kill with a shrug and a comment: “Better a few than many”

    How about none at all. Break the cycle.

    Yes.

    However, the local populations won’t bother seeking justice, just revenge.

    Libs called for Bush’s war crime tribunals but got no where.
    A study showed for every two ‘terrorists’ killed by a drone, 98 civilians died.

    The cons won’t call for war crimes, they are to busy making a profit off arms.

    We are at WAR! People get killed in war. Our Ambassador was tortured, sodomized, and assassinated and a stupid film was blamed rather than our enemies and this Admin. failing foreign policy.
    Progressive America bashing.

    How many civilians died as a result of all those classified SpecOps actions the last 50 years ? We will never know, because they are classified. But we have been doing it ever since the cold war and the birth of the CIA. Drones are just a new and more public way of doing it. Congress banned this sort of thing after Vietnam, so guess who brought it back ? Does Nicaragua and the Contras ring a bell ?

    Are we at war with Pakistan? News to me. When did Congress declare war against them?

    Maybe we’re just at war against the entire rest of the world. So our government has a blank check to bomb anyone, anywhere, with no accountability whatsoever, all in the name of liberty and small government of course.

    I fear you, and the way you think, are in the minority. But thanks anyway.

    In case you hadn’t noticed at the time, Bush was Cheney’s puppet.

    Why aren’t you cheering, the way you would if Bush was still prez?

    It was only after Obama that word of a drone strike being called OFF got out, because troops on the ground pointed out four girls were gathering wood, and the thermal image the guy miles away saw, was NOT “terrorists”. Drones CAN be used instead of snipers, at less risk to our troops, but without sound confirmation of target identity, they are no better than nukes at getting “the right folks”.


    At least now we’re targeting individuals, instead of whole nations, or dropping 2,000 pound bombs on restaurants in crowded neighborhoods, like throwing darts, blindfolded.


    But the REAL answer, is GET OUT, and don’t be dragged into yet MORE wars by fanatics pretending to be “our friends”.

    And that’s still twice as much as GWB did.

    -————————-
    The problem is that the people that we ARE at war with, nominally in Afghanistan, do not recognize the existence of the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and cross it at will.
    The Pakistani government refuses to defend that border, so Pakistan has effectively become the home of the Taliban.

    That’s the problem when you declare war on a group that doesn’t care where they are based, just so long as they can attack you.
