  •  drones kill terrorists. (0+ / 0-)

    And that pisses them off, sure, but nonetheless, we don't send drones where there isn't terrorist activity already. Obama is not indiscriminately droning anyone. Your argument sounds like "the criminals only kill joggers because the cops kill criminals."

    The bad guys make this happen, and you blame the good guys. That doesn't make you more enlightened, it makes you... get ready.... a bad guy. Yes. You support bad guys. There's no nuance to it at all. We would pack up the drones and bring them home if the bad guys knocked it off, and you know it. You can wag your finger at me all day long but everyone can see right through you.

    And I'm here to elect democrats. Calling Obama whatever it is that you are calling him doesn't help elect democrats, does it?

    I'm afraid that my signature won't match the mood of my comment.

    •  Thank you for demonstrating perfectly and (0+ / 0-)

      clearly your intellectual and ethical incompetence, precisely as I described it, except with an added soupcon of staggering factual distortion. I don't know whether you really believe that our drones aren't killing hundreds of ordinary civilians, many of them children, or whether you don't care, or whether it just suits your trollery to pretend to live in some alternate reality where the wedding parties all end with the arrival of a unicorn in stars & stripes livery, to carry the bride and groom off to a blissful honeymoon.

      Somehow, I suspect that had drone technology existed in 1981, and had British drones been exploding in the backyards of Boston in order to take out anybody who happened to be standing next to one Michael Murphy or another (MI6 being persuaded through the judicious application of torture that at least one person in Massachusetts named Michael Murphy was actively recruiting couriers for the IRA), probably the average American would have been more than a little upset with the British government. I guess you don't see it that way.

      As for this:

      And I'm here to elect democrats
      Yeah, right. Sure you are.

      You're a troll, and the only reason I'm having a dialogue with you is because your troll persona so exquisitely exemplifies the brokenness of the worldview you purport to hold.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      •  You're right. (0+ / 0-)

        I see the light now.
        So you're saying Obama sent drones in to these islamic countries to kill ordinary civilians and wedding parties?
        And I'm the troll?
        Why aren't we droning say, Morocco? Is it because there are no wedding parties or is it because there are no terrorists there?  

        And if I am intellectually and ethically incompetent, and I agree with the President, please, tell us what he is. You know he is personally involved in the selection or approval of targets, right? Come on, say it. You called me it.

        And how do you explain the leaders of these countries welcoming the drones in to eliminate their bad guys? Are they ethically incompetent? Are they islamophobes? Do they hate wedding parties? Or are they trying to kill really bad dudes and asked for our help?

        And finally, who uses the word soupçon? I mean really. We know you are much smarter than us, but now you're just running up the score, aren't you.

        I'm afraid that my signature won't match the mood of my comment.
