  •  So you think American citizens should be killed (8+ / 0-)

    for what they say, ericlewis0?

    Good to know you are a strong free speech advocate.

    Okay, but the guy was a propagandist, and was probably guilty of something. Not that he should have been killed for it, but some sort of trial and punishment were in order. So, he is bad example, you say, doesn't tug at your heart strings. Understood.

    How about his kid killed in a separate targeted attack? How about that for venality? Good old USA in the kid killing business?

    If I figure right, the teenager's death doesn't move you either. Because after all, if the president orders their death - they must be bad. Even the collateral damage at funerals and the "double tap" victims who may have been rendering aid to those recently blown up.

    And you realize the next president will have the same powers? And they might be a right-winger, even farther to the right than our current president, I mean.

    As far as efficacy, drones are creating new enemies faster than they can killed. There is no reason to support their use unless you just want to cheer a new way to kill people.
