    with all due respect, most of the US wars were not to be the preventative force of evil.
    Most wars are resource wars for the corporations.
    How many countries are we now droning or building bases in that have vast qualities of natural resources?  
    I can't rec your comment enough.
    And for those that defend this cowardly, brutal use of of drones, reverse the situation.
    If this president can have a kill list to take out'enemy combatants' whatever the hell that means, then other countries should be able to do the same in the name of 'defense'.
    My god!  Haven't you seen the pics of the children who were killed by our drones?  
    It is 100 times worse the Sandy Hook.
    9/11 did not happen because 'they hate us for our Freedoms'.
    Most of them are gone now since the GWOT started.
    They hate us for our goreign policies.
    Invading soverign lands.
    Commiting coups and installing puppet dictators who brutalize their citizens.
    As long as they are friendly to US interests.
    Meaning corporations.
    Obama said in this order when he bombed Libya.
    "we have an obligation to protect US interests and lives".
    I can not believe people here are defending the drone program.
    That disgusts me.
    I agree with paradox.
    Bring the troops home.
    Close the bases and spend money on defense and let the forporations foot the bills for these wars of agression.
    The president's job is not to defend the US.
    It is to defend the Constitution and Obama has treated it worse then Bush.
    Ask yourself why they hate us, then Google the pics of 20 children killed by drones.

    Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?
