    Dear Mr. Tutu.  Yes, that's what the government of the United States and a majority of citizens think. Sorry bout that.

      generally speaking, yes, probably.  we americans are often not as generous of spirt as we would like to think we are.  i think that a lot of people are focusing on the targetting of american citizens because i suspect that most people feel that the best case for challenging obama's drone assassination program is as regards its application to american citizens.

        facetious mode for awhile.  Somebody's gotta do it.
        I hear that about what the best approach is, I need to think that thru.  That kind of thing has been tried before and it hasn't worked (70's CIA, Iran Contra, etc.), but who knows.  At this point it's hard to envision anything stopping this train.  I can think of a major citizen's action to stop the war or US imperialism but there doesn't seem to be enough urgent support for that.  Something happening internationally perhaps, but I still think that would include enough caveats to allow them to just continue on. A potential WWIII with Russia and China might get enough people riled, at least on channel 44.

          i've been in that mode pretty frequently.  i share your skepticism about anything stopping this train, given the popularity of the president's programs.  cripes, when you can convince your citizens that it's ok to kill them on your whim, i think that means that you've really made it as an authoritarian leader.

            That's my "Happy Valentine's Day feel-bad turd" in everybody's punchbowl. Enjoy.

            I was out late tonight participating in a "One Billion Rising" Light Brigade event. Was pretty cool, got some folks educated. We probably should have had some One Billion Rising stuff in the post tonight, Joe, but I didn't think to mention it to you before. But maybe you can put some photos or videos of events that happened today around the world in tomorrow's post.

            On Monday night, we will be attempting the first ever Anti-Drone Light Brigade in my shitty  little cow town here in CA.  I'll keep you posted.

            Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day. Fight the Power!
