Ah, I got you!!! You admit that it is okay to kill civilians if they are illegal combatants (as defined by the Geneva Accords) but what about the civilians that help them?
I flew Medevac for a time in the Army and I had Geneva Non-Combatant ID card. In other words, if captured I would not be a POW but a "detainee" whom they are to return to their country as soon as possible. But the Red Cross on the side of a helicopter does not show up on a radar scope so I assumed certain risks.

You did NOT get me, unless YOU didn't get it. I wrote THREE times that the civilian deaths were , and I used the same adjectives all three times, regrettable. They always are and I always hope that somehow the U.S. can go after the Bin Laden types, the terrorists, kill them but avoid killing innocent lives. Are you going to compare the number of civilians killed in Iraq under GWB and the number of civilians killed by drones . Look at my above post a few minutes ago, I just detailed it for you, 400 to 1. BTW, no innocent deaths are negligeable. Every life is important.

Your service, either as a combatant or Medivac, was, no matter the nature of war, valiant and noble if you were an honest soldier. I assume you were, so thank you for that, as you were putting your life on the line.

I did not know that the American army air force flew Spitfires. Live and learn. Americans flew them for the RAF of course, but news to me they deployed some to the U.S. forces.

Hummm, just Google "ObamaCare Rally" and see what pops up! Remember I told you that ObamaCare and the rest of Obama's agenda is a drag on our economy? Well now that it looks like ObamaCare is dying, the stock market is shooting up and I am ..... RIGHT ON!!!

'Obamacare Rally'? It's as good a reason as any: Friday, 15 Nov 2013 | By: Jeff Cox | Finance Editor

Stocks in general and health care in particular are showing virtually no fear that the Affordable Healthcare Act's dismal debut may have more widespread repercussions.

In a perverse way, the current market's movement, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average approaching 16,000 for the first time ever, could be called the "Obamacare rally."

I don't care if it is OSHA, EPA, the War on Coal or ramming down our throats ObamaCare, it all has had a negative effect on our economy and that is why this is the longest recession recovery in history. And it has nothing to do with Bush either. Obama, and the Progressives, own this economy, lock, stock and barrel!

No you did not answer my question. Answering a question with another question is not an answer. And you call them "parables"? I call it shifting the blame.
In your sick mind it is okay for Obama to kill innocent civilians because ..... Bush did it. But you will bash Bush on the issue but ignore the fact that three our of four people killed in Obama's drone attacks are innocent civilians.
Now, how many deaths are you okay with? None if it was Bush but how many for Obama?
At least Bush tried to capture them and put them in GITMO while Obama would rather kill them than capture them.

Sort of like in 1976 when I was is Hawaii when my wife and I were out in the front lawn taking to my captain neighbor and his wife. We were talking about Vietnam when one of us asked the other where we were in 'Nam.
He was a Ground Pounder with MACV out of Tay Ninh and I told him I use to fly for LTC Jimmenez out of Tay Ninh and suddenly he asked me if I had written on the back of my flight helmet,'Caution, contents under pressure, do not puncture or incinerate', and I said yes. He then said, I remember you but all I saw was your mustache and green helmet visor.
It was at that point his wife asked me how old I was and I told her I was 25 and she said, "You were 19 y/o then!" and I said yes and she said now she was worried about her husband in Vietnam.
But G.H.W. Bush was was just three months past his 19th B-Day when he was shot down and I was 19 and a half when I got to Vietnam.

From Wiki: World War II

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, Bush decided to join the US. Navy, so after graduating from Phillips Academy in 1942, he became a naval aviator at the age of 18. After completing the 10-month course, he was commissioned as an ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve at Corpus Christi, Texas on June 9, 1943, just three days before his 19th birthday, which made him the youngest naval aviator to that date.

He was assigned to Torpedo Squadron (VT-51) as the photographic officer in September 1943. The following year, his squadron was based on the USS San Jacinto as a member of Air Group 51, where his lanky physique earned him the nickname "Skin". During this time, the task force was victorious in one of the largest air battles of World War II: the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

After Bush's promotion to Lieutenant (junior grade) on August 1, 1944, the San Jacinto commenced operations against the Japanese in the Bonin Islands. Bush piloted one of four Grumman TBM Avenger aircraft from VT-51 that attacked the Japanese installations on Chichijima. His crew for the mission, which occurred on September 2, 1944.....

No, my stock broker did. He said there will be a major correct ..... just as soon as Bernanke stops printing Obama Bucks. Has Bernanke stopped printing Obama Bucks? NO!!! Why not??? Because the economy is very week and he is afraid to.

Icahn cautious on stocks, will not walk away from Apple
By Svea Herbst-Bayliss and Jennifer Ablanm - Nov 18, 2013

(Reuters)- Activist investor Carl Icahn said on Monday he is "very cautious" on the stock market, saying he could see a "big drop" because earnings at many companies are fueled more by low borrowing costs [caused by Bernanke printing Obama Bucks] than management's efforts to boost results.

Well, it's a good investment, guarantees a steady income for Berkshire-Hathaway and is a 700 out ofmany contributions these employees have made to Heinz and we are committed to treating all employees with the utmost respect and dignity."
SUUUUUURE. Bastards. Up yours, Buffett.
I apologize for cutting your post.

You have stated the absolute truth and the only cover these top 0.1% have is they contribute to charities (philanthropy).

Back in the 1880s they all were getting bad reputations from the Muckrakers so they decided to get involved in philanthropy which is a good thing, even though they just did it for good Public Relations.

The Shock Doctrine: Naomi Klein on the Rise of Disaster Capitalism
http://tinyurl.com/2aqdqh September 17th, 2007
Pinochet's coup in Chile. The massacre in Tiananmen Square. The collapse of the Soviet Union. September 11th, 2001. The war on Iraq. The Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Award-winning investigative journalist Naomi Klein brings together all of these world-changing events in her new book, "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism." In her first national broadcast interview since the publication of "The Shock Doctrine," Klein joins us in our firehouse studio for the hour. Klein writes, "The history of the contemporary free market was written in shocks." She argues that "Some of the most infamous human rights violations of the past thirty-five years, which have tended to be viewed as sadistic acts carried out by anti-democratic regimes, were in fact either committed with the deliberate intent of terrorizing the public or actively harnessed to prepare the ground for the introduction of radical free-market reforms

We'll have to discuss this one day. I have absolutely no contempt for the rich and, like you, I disapprove of those who don't wish to honestly earn a living. I hate welfare cheating but hate corporate welfare even more as those people don't need handouts or to cheat. What I wrote in the post that you just replied to is pretty much how I feel about the whole situation. Not everyone has the will, the talent, the wherewithal to be rich - hell, there is no way more than , let's say , 5% of the population can be very rich. Were we all rich, we'd be all poor - can you see a billion-dollar rich guy doing his own plumbing and picking up his own garbage or doing the valves on his Mercedes?
There are fewer and fewer rich people who have made their fortunes from the ground up. You have CEOs who act like they own the companies in which they have less than 5% of the shares. Yet, take the CEO of Blackberry who was brought in less than 2 years ago to turn it around. To make a long story short, he ran it into the ground instead. He did manage to lay off over 40,000 employees worldwide, though. How do they think they feel when they learned last week that the aforementioned CEO had been fired but would pick up a severance pay of $22 million for TWO FRIGGIN YEARS OF FAILURE. You tell me how fair that is. Oh, his contract called for $44 million severance pay but they negotiated it down to 22. Awwww, poor bugger. When I say it's not a level playing field, that is what I mean.
I also have a difficult time trying to understand why it is the board of directors of so many big corporations shower failure with so much wealth, at the expense of the shareholders and employees that provide much of the resources to make it all possible. It does seem very unfair and even immoral, but it happens all the time. I feel about the same way about those cheats as I do the lazy and slothful poor. Whether you believe in God or not, this life we all experience is a blessing not to be squandered, wasted, or capitalized on at the expense of others.

Wong.

1. Cost of Living. From 2008 to 2013 the cost of living has risen only 8.8% in five years. In comparison in during Bush's administration from 2003 to 2008 the cost of living rose 17% in five years. Almost a 200% increase.

2. Salary. Average hourly earnings rose from 22.01 in January 2009 to 24.10 in October 2013. An increase of 9.49%. As such, average hourly earnings kept pace with cost of living during the Obama's administration.
