I hear where you're coming from Gleck. I certainly empathize with the point that rather than having kids invade and occupy half the world for decades, drones are a preferable option. And I certainly understand that coming from you given your service. Me, I never served, although I guess technically I still have a few years where I could, I doubt it'll happen. We don't listen enough to guys who have actually served when it comes to these issues.<quoted text>When were people not dying? Please tell us again how you would handle al Qaida terrorists. You did say that you would favor invading countries. As I stated from the beginning these drone strikes are a very dangerous, slippery slope. And innocent civilians have been killed. All my friends are opposed to the drone strikes. Except the one's who have actually experienced war first hand. It seems to me that presidents are often given no good choices, only bad choices, horrible choices, and unspeakably horrible choices. I think the drones are the lesser of evil. So untill someone can give me a more viable solution, yes I support it. BTW why don't you read the article. Take a break from the right wing echo chamber you're obviously living in. You just might learn somrething.
Killing Awlaki and his teenage son, both American citizens, is what really convinced me on the issue. And I worry about us getting carried away with the program to the extent that we end up doing more harm than good. But I certainly understand and respect your point of view here.
