Are we discussin armed drones?<quoted text>
I posted it to show the drones were utilized under President Bush & many civilians were also killed in the process.
You f*cking loons act as though this is some Obama came up with.
As far as targeting American citizens by the government, it happens all the time.
If a US citizen is threatening to do harm/ has done harm to people & they can not be captured to prevent further harm, then they are killed or wounded.
The police do it all the time.
We have the cleric go & join terrorists & actively recruit suicide bombers to attack US assets.
You take him out if you can because invading Yemen to try to capture is too risky.
If a US citizen joined the Taliban & was attacking US forces, I guess you would jump up & say " Stop, you can't shoot that attacker - he is a US citizen. OMG OMG OMG". Yep, I guess, according to you, we should just allow him to kill as many soldiers as possible until we can capture him & put him on trial.
The same with the sniper in the clock tower.
And, does the govenment have the right to invade my privacy without just cause? In other words, can the government spy on the private property of the American public in general, without evidence of a crime?
The liberal courts have always objected to this. So, why today it is these same liberals that are promoting this?
That, by itself, is so suspicious it convinces me that it shouldn't be done.
