  •  You have no idea how I think. (0+ / 0-)

    Why are you so willing to sacrifice the constitution?  Why are you so afraid of people in the middle east?  

    I know the use of drones creating more terrorists holds no water with you but it certainly does with the Pakistan government.

    If we weren't blowing people up over there, you would have less fear of them blowing you up here.

    But carry on with your love for killing people over there.

      I know that they want to kill us, and I am glad we are killing them and making their planning of attacks very difficult. Most of the time, I don't think of them at all. But it is simply ignoring fact for anyone to say that Islamic terrorism does not exist, or that if we did nothing that they would not attack. We know, for a fact, that such things exist and exist for the sole purpose of killing westerners. This is really not too complicated.

    •  You are naive aren't you? Pakistan is in on it. (2+ / 0-)

      Where do you think some of the targeting comes from? There have been reports of deals made with them where we take out someone they want dead in exchange for other considerations.

      There is nothing in the Constitution forbidding self defense. I see no nobility in either hyping the threat or terrorism as some do, or denying it as too many on the Left do.

      The idea that these people,who abuse women as a matter of faith, are somehow just good guys pushed to suicide bombing/chopping off heads by extraneous forces is an insult to reality.

      Drones are weapons. We could easily kill innocent people using any other weapon in our arsenal. Downing the drone fleet, which the MIC isn't going to let happen, is no guarantee of saving lives or abuses of the Constitution.

      The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.
