No offense, but posts like yours really blow my mind. Who are these "terrorists" that we're supposedly being protected against? As a member of ATS with access to mountains of information, how much research have you done into 9/11? I mean really done? Ever hear of "Operation Northwoods?" Look it up. Are you old enough to remember the massive deception of the "attack" in the Gulf of Tonkin? It's all in the NSA archives. Know anything about FDR's foreknowledge of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor? How about Waco, the USS Liberty or TWA 800? What about those Iraqi "weapons of mass destruction?"
You describe yourself as a "loyal citizen." Does this mean you don't question anything the government says or does? Do you really think the government is above lying or deceiving the public? (both Republican AND Democrat.) Ever hear the phrase, "dissent is the highest form of patriotism?"
It simply amazes me when people refuse to think for themselves.

Then ponder this for comparison...
Are you trying to justify killing by citing more killing?!
I think both situations are an abomination to humankind.

I feel very confident in my knowledge of American history so thanks anyway for the "brief lesson". Just because I disagree with you I am some teenager with no knowledge of American history and I just follow what the Government tells me? No, I don't think so.
I am a middle aged man with a college degree and yes, I have taken many history classes in my day. Have a great day!

Let me see if I have this straight. An airstrike by drones firing Hellfire missiles is against international law, but an airstrike by say an F-16 firing Maverick missiles isn't? Get real.
