I find these drone attacks to be similar in essence to the MAC SOG program in vietnam.....
That program sought to capture and kill Vietcong infrastructure...meaning the local leaders.....Charged with doing this job, the spec forces, carried it off fairly well......
Trouble was, they alienated the other viets who were sympathetic to the west.........and many wrong people got snuffed im sure......This is what weve come down to, using muti billion dollar gear to kill one lonely fighter.....
and fifteen suspects whom we DONT know......
There is a bit of overkil here that eaces the US far from the mora high ground,....actually lowers us to the level of the inquisition.....

If some of those unimportant people happened to be friends or family, would you agree with that position? Bombed for working in the wrong mailroom? If someone from Lake Forest, Illinois came and bombed Canada, then went home. Canada decided to bomb the APT building he was living in, or the office building, whatever, and you had family there that was killed by the bomb, would you accept that line of thinking? I sure as hell wouldn't. Taking out 20 people, because one of them might be a bad guy is just plain evil if you ask me.
borrowed money keeps this government operating, not your tax dollars
the taxes are obviously an attempt to make you feel good about yourself. participation increases self-esteem.
as far as the Flag being yours...that remains to be seen
many people would happily desecrate it under the right circumstances.
but the dead man is guilty as sin and he knows it. and anyone that was with him.
