    While she’s correct, our efforts at hegemony have been fueling terrorism for decades. Little things like Iran/Contra, Grenada, Panama, Guatemala, and of course all Middle East nations, but one.

    Truth is truth, regardless of its source, and regardless of how the source is perceived. It is unfortunate that truth is so often ignored, and how many people’s lives become “collateral damage” as a result.

    Ah, but Isreal is also now largely controlled by a religious fundamentalist group and many would argue it acts like a terrorist state.

    Emperor Bush II is creating terrorists? Next you’ll tell me he can’t speak unless he has a prepared speech before him, or that his history of substance abuse is effecting his ability to function as a rational being.

    I didn’t see anyone belittle or mock her for saying this, and I didn’t see anyone defend the President. This one appears to be all in Matt Bors’ imagination.

    Drones don’t fuel terrorism. Drones kill terrorists, without risking soldiers lives

    Drones fuel terrorism when they kill civilians whose surviving members seek revenge by joining terrorist groups. Cannon shells, RPGs, and other weapons that kill at a distance do the same. Soldiers who fire on unarmed non-combatants also fuel terrorism. Terrorism is how people who can’t form an effective army against their opponent get revenge and try to get their way.
    An A-10 pilot I knew worked on the drone project during its early days before it went ‘live’. HE considered it terrorism since we were using ‘robots’ to kill at a distance. He thought it was dishonorable and unethical. He also showed me pictures of bullet holes in his aircraft received during Desert Storm.
    I don’t want our military sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, father and mothers killed in combat. But I don’t want non combatants killed just because they made the mistake of living in a house beside one where the ‘bad guy’ lived.
    How do we balance that?
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Enoki: She does not wear a burka. Learn facts and a vocabulary before spouting off.

    And drones ONLY kill terrorists, and NEVER innocents, because WE are the GOOD GUYS and the GOOD GUYS never kill innocents.
    So therefore everyone our drones kill was a terrorist. Even the unborn children.

    “Oh that is bull, we are the ONLY Nation who does not “nation build””
    Are you totally blind to what the neocons did during G W Bush’s term. They wanted to be the new Roman Empire.

    “It is all about body count to them. ours, theirs, infidels, what ever plays best to the cameras.”
    What? Really? Terrorists will deliberately present false news reports to manipulate public opinion in their favor? Why don’t they have a candidate then? Sounds like they’ve got campaigning down cold.

    R.T.: I’m sure your A-10 “warthog” pilot friend can also tell you that while it was one of our best designed military aircraft, with a pilot to make last moment decisions, they’re being converted to just “stand off” and launch drones: a dumb idea.


    Every time I see “commanders” demand helicopter pilots launch hellfires, or a drone attack, I’m reminded of a real incident when the South Vietnamese Air Farce guy we called in, dropped his bombs seven miles away, ‘cause we were getting shot at. A Marine F-4 pilot heard what was happening, and came in, dropping napalm within a few meters of us, exactly where we told him to, and avoided “damaging friendlies”(me and my buddies). He wasn’t using thermal imaging, prone to gross error, or the commands of some “pilot” half a planet away, he was using “eyes on” targeting in real time, not even the 10-30 second delays that drones have in their “commands” from those bunker “pilots” so far away.


    I LIKE knocking off “bad guys”, when accurately identified, but hated the way Bush was using drones. Don’t care for some of the attacks under Obama either, but at least they DID start demanding some more accurate intel before striking.


    The recent incident in Somalia, where the “mission” was called off at the last minute by the SEALs, because there was too great a risk to a lot of “friendlies” (as in collateral damage) it IS a smarter way to conduct missions, and REDUCE that payoff the “terrorists” are looking for as “rationale”.
