I would assume CIA spies pick the targets. I did not actually say the Pakistan people were terrorists. I said they basicly harbor them. I find it hard to believe a lot of Pakistan people did not know Bin Laden was in Pakistan. But, The American people are divided too, so i see where your coming from. I do not think everyone in Pakistan wants to harbor terrorists. You must realize the American people are just spectators in the Middle East just as the Pakistan people are spectators.

I am gaining in respect for You sir.
How do the CIA pick their targets for drones to blow them and women and children into tiny pieces of rotting flesh???
Do they wander about Pakistan?
Do they have cameras on Pakistan?
Or do they just "PICK" any suitable looking target?

If any highly trained agent wanted to KILL a specific person, they could with one bullet.
Two to make sure( Osama bin Loaded?)
No sir, these are randomly chosen , and spread out acts of terror by America upon Pakistan.
These are COWARDS sat at desks in forts pushing buttons not caring who or what they murder.
These are American cowards, not soldiers facing an enemy equally armed.
These are third world innocents been slaughtered to create an excuse to escalate ever more for PROFIT wars by Americas corperate military regime.
Obama is an agent of that corperate system.
Wake up.

Basically it's just a piece of junk.



Drones use missiles. Missiles aren't bullets, they're bombs. A missile can't blow up just one person, unless that person is several yards from any other human being.

And what are the odds that a coward terrorist isn't hiding in the middle of civilians?

/TOA


So! terrorists are cowards???( I have it confirmed upon here that Obama is a terrorist)
Is Obama living with women and children?
These so called terrorists hiding with civilians ....might just live with said civilians, they may just be civilians????

Semantics here...If organized military action constitutes terrorism then yes...Every nation in the world with an active military is a terrorist organization.

But of course the truth is....

Terrorists are defined by the specific action or TARGETING INNOCENT CIVILIANS in order to create FEAR AND TERROR amongst a population with the goal of effecting policy.

Terrorism works best if the target is a democracey...cuz in dictatorships the neccessary relationship between civilians and leaders is broken.

TERRORISTS...TARGET CIVILIANS

THE USA TARGETS TERRORISTS...

One's aim is to kill terrorists to prevent many civilians from being murdered by those terrorists...and in those strikes, sometimes civilians are killed.

The other (Terrorists) GOAL is to kill as many civilians as possible.

I have no doubt that everyone here understands the fundemental distinction, but for partisan purposes coddle ignorance and the fallacy of FALSE EQUIVELANCE when speaking of the President of the United States,

"The USA targets terrorists"

HOW????
You explain how YOU or the USA knows who is a terrorist?

Do You or the USA watch these so called terrorists go and kill civilians???
Do YOU??
Does the USA????/
Then what, do they follow them to their homes???

Actually, yes. Here are two concepts that you should look up: intelligence and surveillance.

Should I indeed?

So You are stating what?
That civilians of Pakistan are identified by "INTELLIGENCE and SURVEILLANCE" and then drones are targetted to where they live with women and children to be blown to smithereens ???
And I need to look up about intelligence....hmmmmmmm.

NavyDoc,
Tell Me please ...if with Your INTELLIGENCE and SURVEILLANCE ...that You determined that a person in Los Angeles was committing murders to gain financially...would You condone and encourage a drone attack on said person wherever Your intelligence and surveillence said such person was... and never mind if civilians are also blown to bits.
Would Your intelligence justify such???

Drone Carnage, bomb carnage, shooting carnage, there's no difference how people die. The Iraq war, Afghanistan war, and any other war for that matter, simply isn't a moral decision, period. War and killing people is not something a civilized society should be actively engaged in.

We tell our children to solve their differences without fighting, yet as adults we use war to solve our differences. What's wrong with this picture? The countries of the world can't even come together to help settle differences between 2 feuding neighboring countries.

The result is the innocent end up paying with their lives, and our sons and daughters end up sacrificing their lives for those pulling the political and hate strings. Until people of the world stand up and unite and say enough is enough, wars, drone killings, bombings and shootings unfortunately are here to stay.

My god, the sycophants have taken over this forum. If this were a topic about drone strikes under Bush, ATS and the MSM would be FILLED with outrage. Since it's their guy they have nothing but excuses and deflections. Truly disturbing.

You don't make much sense....LA is US Soil with all the jurisdiction, legal resources and agencies that come with that geography.

A better example would be...say the Man who proudly masterminded the murder of 3k innocent Americans was hiding in foriegn country/Pakistan for almost a decade sheltered by factions of Pakistani Intelligence (ISI).

Who cares which party orders the drone attacks ? The moral questions really lie on the operator of the drone. Emotionless, he or she kills people , on command, by the very nature of doing their job correctly. Correctly and skillfully killing innocents and terrorists alike, who the operator must be trained to care less about...."It's just my job, man!" What's the moral prerogative of a person who is a skilled game player killer??

It still bewilders me why people star your posts on this website.


Anwar Awlaki was an American citizen killed by a drone in Yemen, yet there was NO EVIDENCE that he was part of any terrorist organization, he was just SUSPECTED. Gee, doesn't this sound similar to NDAA? With NDAA, you can be arrested with no evidence, just suspection, no trial, no jury and held indefinitely.

Actually, forget everything I said. Everything is going to be just fine. Continue your crusade of not questioning anything, believing everything the TV tells you, and continue your hibernation.

Oh... so it's just fine to bomb a bunch of civilians if there's a terrorist hiding amongst them. Really?


I think that's a really sad and lazy justification for taking innocent life...

Indigo5,
I am making sense as regards to LA been droned attacked.
Once You legitimise drones as is happening now, then it will be accepted to use them anywhere.
Murderers are murderers, no matter where they commit such inhuman acts.
Therefore murderers will be called terrorists???

I view Obama as a murderer....a terrorist who has ordered mass murder.
Those people in Pakistan are exactly the same as You , and their children the same as every American child.
Those murderers sat in fort bragg, or wherever they are pushing buttons on a screen , and randomly MURDERING women and children will have no feelings of remorse if ordered to target anywhere.

Wake up.

Not that I agree with the military decisions of my county and/or politicians, but I guess the authority to do so is granted by possessing the world's largest stockpile of strategic nuclear weapons...just my guess.

Cosmic911,
Are You stating that because America has the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons it can do as it pleases in blasting anyone to rotting flesh???
Are You proud of this....it is been undertaken in Your name.
Are You a supporter of drones killing children, because that is what is occuring in YOUR name.
Pakistan people are humans, they are the same as YOU, they go to the toilet same as Obama does, they have the same dreams for their children, but America with it's huge stockpile of nuclear weapons can murder them because it can????

Can You please explain why this so called "mastermind" who murdered 3k Americans was not targetted by a drone????
Oh no ..supposedly a whole team of special forces were supposedly sent to put a bullet in His head.
Dead men can't talk.
If You still actually believe the hollywood script of who demolished three towers, and that such is still been used to justify the slaughtering of millions of innocent civilians , then I pity You and all Americans who have bought such a lie hook line and sinker.

Are those who manufacture the drones proud Americans???
Are those who manufacture the missiles proud Americans?

Do You feel safe in America now that drones are blowing up anyone SUSPECTED of been a TERRORIST.

Will You proudly cheer at Your rigged elections whoever decides to send drones wherever to preserve the LAND OF THE FREE???
