So now Catholics might be fair game for Obama drones? I mean I could see it if they voted Republican and belonged to the NRA, but not all of them – right?
Wpouldn't be the worst use of drones, but not by law they won't be.

Now you really stepped in it..There was military involvement at Waco.. It included:Members of the 1st Cavalry Division of the Army’s III Corps at Fort Hood, Texas. According to a report by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the list of military personnel and equipment used at Waco included: 15 active-duty military personnel, 13 Texas National Guard personnel, nine Bradley fighting vehicles, five combat-engineer vehicles, one tank-retrieval vehicle and two M1A1 Abrams tanks. Additionally, Fort Hood reportedly was used for much of the training for the bloody attack on the Davidians and their children. All in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.

Evidently you ARE "that stupid". Then again, a woodtick has a pretty small brain.. I suppose that is all we can expect from such as you..

Now take your whoopping like a big boy and admit your ignorance of the facts.

I watched the Waco situation on tv everyday for a long time and it was a military tank that went through the wall of their building . That was Janet Reno's screw up, and she had the military very involved!

<quoted text>Wait!!! I in knw way support Obama or any of his ideas, but Waco was David Koresh fault that all those people were killed. Hell no freaking idiot would pour gas every where and not expect something bad to happen.
So....That's your answer? If someone breaks a law, or the government wishes to arrest them, they (the government) have every right to use any means to take you in, legal or not?..You're OK with the use of miltary assets and personell against the civilian population in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act?

Nobody is arguing whether or not the warrants were legal or justified..The debate is the means used by the DOJ to execute the warrants..[The US Military is not to be used against US Citizens in the absence of Martial Law].

Law enforcement had a choice to wait it out and they chose the more aggresive path that lead to the deaths of all those innocents.

Others blaming Janet Reo, I'll go along with that as well as Clinton.The "buck" stops with the President.

<quoted text>No not at all. Obama or the goverment does not have a right to use military force against American. I agree with you 100%. I am just saying that Koesh really was the cause of that place catching on fire and killingthose people. That's where the blame should be.
I agree..The guy was a nut.

So, Reality, you admit that using US troops on US soil has a long and varied precedent. Thanx for clearing that up.

How many days did it take you to come up with that? I only wonder because it makes as much sense as your claim no military was involved at Waco.

Go back to that old dog you dropped off of.

Of coure USTroops are used on US soil. They just haven't been doing so under orders to kill whoever the president has on his kill list before. That would be the great big difference.

. Of course there hasn't been, ans there won't be under this, or any program as that would be unconstitutional.

That's some fancy footwork there boy... Backtrack and deflect...Clinton violated the Posse Comitataus Act.. A Democrat. Obama was/is, or seems to be contemplating the same type of violation.

Nobody proved your point..Your point was slam dunked, you were shown to be an idiot who was ignorant of the facts, and as always you were, and are not able to man up and come clean...

Backtrack, deflect, twist, and shout.....

In what year did the National Guard in this country, KILL four unarmed students??

The year was 1970.

Kent State, May 4, 1970: America Kills Its Children

“Guardsmen wheeled and fired directly into the students, hitting thirteen, killing four of them, pulling the trigger over and over, for thirteen seconds”.

Probably would have used drones back then, had they been in use at the time.

The drones wouldn't have been scared and nervous and fired on innocent civilians.

Did you have a point to this post and any particular reason you directed it to me?
