So Obama gets to pretend he's a tough guy killing our enemies, the military can strut a bit, and the military-industrial complex gets to make more killing toys.

While the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan continue to suffer...

Bleah.

"Suspected" drone hit. Those poor, innocent people in Pakistan who shoot little girls who want to be educated may have blown each other up. Ever think of that? Why don't you go over there and bring them some love?

Undoubtedly, Obama feels that his days in the White House are numbered and that he wants to be remembered as the fighter who fought al Qaida and destroyed them. However, the fact is that al Qaida that destroyed the US Embassy in Libya during 6 hours on 9/11 with no resistance of Obama as the loser in chief are flourishing in the Middle East and Northern Africa where they are involved in the Arab Spring wars in Syria, Yemen, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt (Sinai. The using of drone attack to kill suspected Taliban terrorists without intelligence on the ground in Pakistan is illegal and against the American constitution even if the liberal deceitful media that serves the Obama’s re-election efforts keeps quiet about Obama’s failures to follow the American laws. Obama effort to distract the American people from his failures in the debate and his effort to cover up the al Qaida attack is fruitless and give bad name to America. Will GOP Congressmen ever stand up to the dictator Obama who kill people without knowing who they are?

Sure, label me. Maybe it was a drone that shot that 14 year old Muslim girl. Maybe Osama bin Ladin did not hide in Pakistan for years. Maybe the Taliban are tolerant, loving people. Maybe you don't have the guts to go to the Skat Valley and prove that you are right. Just for the record, I am against stationing troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, etc. I am also against sending troops to get killed fighting enemy combatants when a robot can do it. If you think only innocent civilians get killed in those strikes then it is you that is in denial.

If you're talking to me, you're full of crap. Hey, let's face it, you're full of crap anyway.

A murdered 14-year-old girl doesn't justify thousands killed in drone strikes, SOME OF THEM civilians. No one's said "only innocent civilians," Mr. Strawman.

I don't give a crap about the Taliban and don't want any Americans going down Skat Valley, tough guy. Hope that clears it up for you. In fact, I'm against troops, drones, OR a U.S. or NATO presence there. The war's a mess we have to get out of and should never have gotten INto. The only reason ever to have been there was to kill off bin Laden and AQ's top leadership. Bush bungled the former and hung around long after the latter was mostly accomplished, and now that Obama's directed bin Laden's death, there's no further reason to be there killing people and enraging Muslims.
