    If a US drone pilot (operator?) deliberately targeted school children, we’d charge him with murder no matter where the school was. When terrorist start punishing their own then I’ll take these kinds of complaints seriously.

    Well, if the lawyers say it’s OK, it must be OK.

    People who defend the drone attacks should have their houses fire bombed while their families are home. The White House would be a good first choice.

    A few months ago I kept getting absurd justifications to my protests and disgust regarding the appalling drone programme.
    Perhaps Rall’s reversal of the roles puts it in perspective for those who still support the drone programme.

    Radish has it. Simple role reversal.

    Well played, Mr. Rall.

    It’s funny that our right wingers would be outraged if we decided to “allow” a foreign nation to build a military base in the U.S., but don’t understand why when we do that elsewhere, it makes far more enemies than friends.

    Speaking of ironic: fighting terror with terror….isn’t that like going to war to preserve peace?

    Think of it this way: Death is dropped out of the sky without warning, and without concern for exactly who and how many are killed. If this happened in your neighborhood, would you think “Let’s get those bastards” or “Maybe those people have it right, and we’re wrong”?

    The more we kill, the more reason we give them, rightly or wrongly, to hate us. Remember, just as we dislike their governments and their leaders, most people are like us: we all just want to be left alone. But they will hate us because they hate what our government does.

    I submit that if we had specifically gone after bin Ladin and brought him to justice without unjustified and limitless wars and botched occupations, we would be in much better shape financially, as well as being far more secure.

    You can’t kill an idea with a weapon; most of the time, you will accelerate its spread. And you will never, never eradicate EVERYONE who feels a certain way. The best you can do is show them why they’re wrong. We are busy showing them that they have justification for their hatred. This will continue to bite us in the butt for at BEST a generation after we leave them alone.

    Was that a threat to the White House?

    No. It was an example of role reversal.

    pdchapin what will happen after you start taking these complaints seriously? Will you change the channel?

    As usual Ted Rall makes an irrefutable point about equality that is responded to with sheer nonsense from the opponents of justice and proponents of ignorance.

    I wouldn’t be so sure. Throwing an underling under the bus isn’t really too much of a problem for the US military. As long as the Trillion Dollar annual war budget keeps increasing then all is fair in love and war. You can even oust a General for the wrong kind of love. Just make sure we keep bombing kids and you can have as much patsy justice as you like.

    Teddy is irrational. 9/11! Irony? Gut off the heads of people in the neighbourhood! That is the way to end all terror and evil forever! Hooray, no more evil!

    Robespierre lives on in America, 2013.

    Right on the money! Obama uses drones against “our enemies” and kills dozens of women and children in the process and few speak against it.

    Love it when Ted spreads the ‘hurt’ to both sides. Libs were frothing at the mouth when Bush did it… now they’re all crickets… hypocrites till the end…
