Funny how the murder of innocent civilians is used as a justification as to why America wages unjust war on all these countries in the name of protecting us/them from "terrorists"....and then we go there and inflict terror on these poor people. These Drone attacks are beyond cowardly and the "people"...yeah...remember us....DON'T WANT THEM !!!!!

The irony of drones is that to save the lives of American soldiers they make killing all the easier. I don't have to imagine that Generals and Politicans alike since time began have salivated over the thought of drones. This is warfare evolving. Imagine terminator esq. armies deploying at the politcal whim of the worlds countries. Without Human lives at steak on both sides of the war equation we have no reason to search for peace. War will begin with robot on robot combat till one side begins to lose and then it will commit flesh and blood to the fight. Ugly.
We are on very, very thin ice here...
Yes, and Ron Paul wanted to put an end to it by closing many military bases overseas. He was extremely popular, filled stadiums with several thousand people in each city in California, defeated Obama in head-to-head polls - but was not allowed by TPTB to gain the Republican Primary nomination (and thereby the Presidency). This tells us that the one who did get the nomination, Romney, is simply a stooge.

Just heard the "at what cost?" part there on ATS live, and yes, they may have taken out some senior members of the big boogey terrorist groups but out of all the innocent casualties, how many family members of those people have taken to an uprising against the evil U.S. empire?

4700? That's it?
I highly doubt that. It is most definitely higher then that. I am most certain a patriot, but people will never be against this totally until the bombs start landing on ourselves.
