    8-1 children dying over militants?
    Link?
    Yemen is the Mecca of terrorism……
    This is just about the ONLY thing where Barry has listened to people much smarter than him and I applaud that.

    Here you redacted!

    Two failed strikes on Ayman Zawahiri killed 76 children and 29 adults.

    To kill Qari Hussain, the US also killed 128 people, including 13 children.

    Those were in Pakistan. Here’s a scorecard for Pakistan and Yemen from last December.

    Not a pleasant editorial cartoon, but a hard-hitting one and to the point, whatever the viewer’s opinion might be. Herblock used to strike me this way.

    More Obama bashing. The Congress could prevent the use of drones anytime they want. They make the laws, instead they bitch about the President.

    When you introduce a weapon of war, you should not be surprised when that same weapon is used against you. The whole concept of “we fight them over there so we won’t need to fight them over here” was barely defensible at first, but now that we have drone warfare, it’s easy for them to fight us over here, no matter where our military happens to be stationed.

    “The Congress could prevent the use of drones anytime they want.”

    The NRA is already printing bumper stickers that say, “When drones are outlawed, only outlaws will have drones.” Congress will never prevent the use of drones. Follow the money.

    Um, there’s a considerable difference between something capable of carrying a hero cam and a robot plane that carries a half dozen hellfire missiles.

    He’s killing those other children to keep his children safe. Theirs’ have to die over there so his don’t have to die over here. I wonder how he explains that to his kids (and wife).

    WHICH reminds me of a story that’s making the rounds:
    During a protest in LA about police brutality and unnecessary shootings, a guy walking by got upset. He yelled at the demonstrators “I’LL BELIEVE YOU ABOUT POLICE MISCONDUCT WHEN PIGS FLY!”. A man carrying a sign walked over to him calmly, pointed in the air and said “Look there”. He was pointing at a small drone flying over the crowd taking pictures, with a little sign saying “POLICE” on the back of it. He looks at the drone, looks back at the crowd, says “GIMME THE DAMN SIGN!”, and joins the protest.

    Oh, brother, link…do your own Googling! It’s been widely established that the accuracy rate for drones is about 2%…and that’s killing “militants,” i.e., people who had no plans to attack the US, only one of its allied dictatorships.

    Congress likes drones. Both parties love indiscriminate murder of Muslim civilians.

    No doubt. You never want to be first to use a weapon.

    @Gregory Kruse

    The only problem with that is, of course, as I know you know, that killing those foreign kids makes his own kids less safe. So he’s mean AND stupid.
