@Cajun: Hooray! One down, 47% of America to go!
(j/k!)

Arrrg! MacGovern Them Barbary 'musclemen' have vexed us long and terribly! Let us set sail, and show them our wrath!

(The USA was fighting Muslim "Terrorists" back in 1801-1805...)

NOY according to the MSM!
Bush has wars = huge demonstrations organized by various Democrat, leftists and Unions (sorry to repeat myself).
Obama has wars = sound of crickets



You notice my avatar says "Obomney" right? I didn't vote for Obama this time around (early voting, it's a mess on election day). I voted for Obama in '08 because I WANTED him to reverse the evils of the Bush admin. Instead he compounded on them, thus he lost my vote.

I'm sure the millions of dead civilians really appreciated that!


Now that mentioned it, relations normalized with increased trade actually. So yeah not as the way I originally stated it.
My point is though the way we're using Drones suggests that we're really unaware of the emotional/political ramifications of such attacks. Sure one attack in a generation some hard feelings but not likely to lead to blowback. But we're talking about MULTIPLE attacks within a year.

Djibouti = Africa...
But high marks for the effort!

What the hell am I saying?
We'd defend Israel AND we're neutral?
*facepalm*


Lolz @Cajun! I wasn't going to berate you for it, I know what you mean (stay out as best the USA can) & support that (somewhat). I'm glad you noticed the inherant contradiction in your statements...

Which we followed up by cleaning up our mess.

I'm sure the millions of dead civilians really appreciated that! Close to 10 million actually... thanks for digging our graves America!

The "Two-Ocean Navy Act" violated a treaty which the USA signed with Britian and Japan, which really REALLY pissed off the Japanese! Of course their plans were already made, so it didn't 'directly' cause war...

#9 Palau: USA provides her defence needs. BZZZT! NEXT! (that's not "has no army" they just use another nation's army)
Ditto: 7, 6, and 3 others too...

Drones are BAD PERIOD! The president who uses them is irrelevant.

Only "Code Pink" has the balls to protest Obama's AND Bush's drone use. ONLY THEM! How sad is that?

You Got It! lolz!

I meant the 'you' to be plural, sorry! I should have said "you both got it". My bad!

...we'd defend Israel...

See? Those 3 words there are EXACTLY what fires up the Jihadists! No further fuel is required! Until Israel is GONE they have Jihad.

Azurbaijan is in the "Middle East"? idk bro, that region is usually refered to as "The Cacucauses" eh?

One the one hand: drones save the lives of soldiers that would otherwise be needed.

On the other hand: making warfare as easy as playing a videogame is one hell of a slipperly slope.

Ummm pretty sure firebombing Germeany and Japan did cause massive civilian casualties. That and a nuke or two.

In any case Israel is a strong nation with a vibrant economy and is considered regional superpower. Our absence from the region wouldn't jeopardize their existence

Certainly not as perilous as causing massive civillian casualties that would later encourage to take up arms against us.

*Erdogan's the current prime minister but his predecessor's a better example as a leader.

[quote">That worked SO WELL in preventing WW2! The "head in the sand" policy has never failed the USA before![/quote">

Certainly not as perilous as causing massive civillian casualties that would later encourage to take up arms against us. We only lost three ships. Secondly we were actually responding to events in Europe.

Obviously these are small countries. But keeping a limited footprint in the world does NOT invite attack.

Bush drones = BAD! Breaks the law!
Obama 3X as many drones = GOOD! He's above the 'law'!



Drones are BAD PERIOD! The president who uses them is irrelevant.

But realisticly? There might be a 2-3 hour "window of opportunity" to launch a strike. I don't think Congess works that quickly...


It's not like we give up looking anyway.

You Got It! lolz!


Don't throw me under bus so quickly, yes as I've already said Letters of Marque authorize captures.

That's true @FP! If Israel was destroyed, then AQ couldn't use it for recruiting!


Not what he was suggesting, we'd defend Israel but we'd let them handle the peace process on their own.

Name 3 middle-eastern non-despots

How about let congress approve of a list of targets BEFORE bombing.

@Cajun: Didn't you get the memo?
Bush drones = BAD! Breaks the law!
Obama 3X as many drones = GOOD! He's above the 'law'!

But realisticly? There might be a 2-3 hour "window of opportunity" to launch a strike. I don't think Congess works that quickly...

Drones to immediately kill... anyone sporting ICP tats

Careful @BoredFrank, your inner facist is slipping out!

@MacGovern & @Cajun: OUR guys are "privateers" while THEIR guys are "pirates". Get it?
I got me Letters of Marque! Iz a privateer!!

You Got It! lolz!



We can haz... Letterz of Marque?

@chalket & @jamie: I think @triki-trakes was being sarcastic. I HOPE he was, otherwise...

...it INVITES attacks.

"advanced technology of war is the very reason why terrorism exists."

@uunxx: Are you delusional?
#1: Partisans Wiki says they've been used since 1789!

Both the Confederacy and (more famously) the Union used "Raiders" in the US Civil War.

We'd call those, and countless others in history, "terrorists" in modern times.

"you'll blow up a subway station"
I thought you only had "a club"? (lolz!)

"It would undermine a key selling point for them."
That's true @FP! If Israel was destroyed, then AQ couldn't use it for recruiting! Great idea! (you have a bad case of "the dumb" today dude, fyi)
HINT: Jihadists don't NEED an excuse! Our mere existance as infidels is all the reason they need. It says so in the

Iraq was already preventable.

@FoolsPrussia: True that! Saddam could have NOT invaded Kuwait...
Oh, you were blaming Bush again? Nevermind.

"1) Stop supporting despotic leaders who persecute their people"
Name 3 middle-eastern non-despots. Go on, you can use google and everything to try to find them.
Hint: Israel is one...

"2) Take a position of neutrality in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict"
That worked SO WELL in preventing WW2! The "head in the sand" policy has never failed the USA before!

"3) Support democratic movements within middle eastern countries"
Um, that's what THEY call 'interference'. So how does that count as NOT interfering & making them angry?

"4) Remove U.S. troops, particularly from Afghanistan, which is viewed throughout the mideast as an occupation"
ic: surrender! That will make them stop hating y'all! NOT! If USA is seen as weak? I

"I am glad to hear that drones are being used and for the people that beleive that drones will be hovering over america helping police....well you shouldn't have a problem unless you are doing illegal activities would you?"

the battle cry of a truly naive person. unchecked power is NEVER a good thing to give the government and using the "trust me" tactic, never a good way to go about keeping the gov accountable.

YOU are exactly the problem in this country. Uninformed and terrifyingly naive.

this is what happens when the people of a government that is designed to be BY THE PEOPLE forget that part and stop paying attention.

every time I hear someone say, "Oh I am not that into politics" what I actually here is, "My freedom doesn't matter to me one bit".

@uunxx "advanced technology of war is the very reason why terrorism exists. There was no terrorism in times when all people were equal and they just bludgeoned each other."

Yea there has actually been terrorism for a LONG Time, Burning Down houses attacking the people they didn't like. What do you think the KKK was?
