    At least he showed everyone what a filibuster is really like, not just an “I object!” .It was a stupid subject to be filibustering on because there are already laws pertaining to said subject, just not specifically armed drones.

    An unarmed drone can save lives as well as an armed drone can save lives. There is no need for a Federal armed drone here that I can see. As for in Somalia, Pakistan or in other hostile regions, definitely, yes. As for the nationality of a said combatant/terrorist, it does not matter. Perhaps you would like to volunteer to “arrest” these people so they could be brought to trial as one lawmaker suggested. If so, Good Luck.

    I thought the Democrats picked up two senate seats in 2012. Maybe you’re thinking about 2010.

    SWAT to deal with Terrorists?Police are neither equipped or have the necessary skills to meet such an opponent.I witness this in class one day on WMD training. They were showing videos of terrorists being taken out by 30 mm guns on an Apache gunship. I said out loud when some of them got hit. “Nothing but Chunks!” I was immediately slammed by MY own kind for being INSENSITIVE to them. I went WHAT? Do you know what they would love to do to us? The instructor stopped the onslaught by siding with me. You cannot expect a terrorist to act in a civil manner. They are not like a criminal on crime spree. They are killers who show no remorse or respect of who they kill. They are the Active Shooters in a school on a rampage. When you engage as a SWAT or police you have to use more brutal behavior. No negotiations, no mercy, kill on sight unless they drop the weapon on seeing you.As for training. I have an M4 (only allowed to carried and equipped in the police specifications in other words unmodified), 12 ga shotgun with 4 (yes only 4 rounds), soft body armor (said to stop only 357mag maybe, low bid), a SIG 357 P226 DA pistol, and that is all. We train in anti-terrorism maybe once a year (yea that’s all and its mostly shooting at targets, green paper ones to offend no one). Pretty heavily armed and trained to meet Jihad Joe and his friends don’t you think. I personally rely on my military training to get through something like this (my company says I am a bit rough but would be alive doing it my way).
