    How does anyone get around that?

    Honest question because I don't know the answer here.

    Is the point of an election not, in part, saying "I trust you to represent me, including to protect me"?

    I think that's why it was so hard to swallow the stuff Bush did; total frustration that there was no way to get around what he was doing.

    The UN checking in is a good step, I feel. Otherwise, have the rules not always been changed and is this not the very nature of war itself? I'm entirely anti-war. But if having to be strategic and the CIC, each one is subject essentially to their own laws, aren't they, without violating international laws?

    So I don't see how it's different here whatsoever. And I say this as someone definitely not in favor of drones.
