    Obama expanded drone attacks and had killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of innocents. To ignore the blood on his hands is to support that bad policy of shoot first,  ask questions later. Maybe.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      Obama's "expanded drone attacks" are nothing compared to Nixon's 11 day bombing campaign involving 200 B-52 bombers killing 1600 people. And I haven't even included Nixon's Cambodian campaign.

      By the way, if you want to allege that Obama managed to rake up "perhaps thousands of innocents" in kills, you need to show references. Extraordinary claims and all that.

        Never.
