“If you live in a war zone …” Got it. It’s the 8 year old’s own fault for living in a war zone. 8 year olds should be living their lives watching the skies and hoping they can outrun a Hellfire missile if they happen to spot it coming. 8 year old Americans are exempt.
What’s brave about operating a drone thousands of miles from your indiscriminate targets?
If a drone operator presses a button knowing children are in his target area, he’s making a conscious choice to kill them. There’s no moral superiority there – he knows he’s killing kids.
Neither are 8 year old children at a wedding in Afghanistan, but the drone operator knows they’re going to die when he presses the button. But, hey, they’re brown and far away, right? So just “collateral damage” to hypocrites like you.
So you can’t refute the argument? I didn’t think so.
Nope, I’m pretty well clued up on military terminology. Which is why I know that ‘battle’ involves combat between two or more forces, not detonating remotely bombs that you know will kill civilians at no risk to yourself. Therefore doesn’t apply to the people who bombed the marathon, or to the people operating drones. Happy to have cleared that up for you.
I’m a Guardian-reading British “leftie”, and I marched against Thatcher in the day. There’s a lot to be said against her, but this is juvenile, inaccurate propaganda. And it fails the most important test for a political cartoon – it isn’t witty or funny.

Alabama_Al, it’s an excellent example of Poe’s Law: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe%27s_law

“But he won, Karl, he won!” Four more years, loser.
