“this is the result of dehumanizing people considered enemies, be they political, military, economic or cultural. pretty soon it becomes ok to treat any member of that group as having less value as a human being as we and ok to kill them. from this we start treating them as "collateral damage" when non-combatants are killed because our lives are worth more than theirs and if it means sacrificing a few of them to meet our objectives that's ok. this is part of the appeal of weaponized drone strikes. the notion that because we won't have "boots on the ground" and risk american lives as if american lives were somehow more valuable than others makes it ok.”

“The limited collateral damage resulting from drone strikes is far more preferrable to the tens of thousands of innocent people killed by conventional actions, like the war in Iraq.”

nancy04181947 on Nov 10, 2013 at 10:04:14

“To compare the drone strikes on terrorist to what was done to the Jewish people is insulting to Jews. The Jewish people were innocent individuals who didn't deserve what happened to them. Has there been innocent people killed with drones, yes. The number is exaggerated. It is estimated to be in the hundreds, NOT 100's of thousands as people want to claim. People who lie to make a case against drone strikes.

The terrorist killed by drones were planning on killing thousands of people. The Yemen leaders want America to kill the terrorist in their country. Sometimes people die to save thousands. That's part of war, and we are at war with terrorist; the unseen army. It is a fact.

And don't give me the whole "they weren't prosecuted and tried". Big deal. I wish we had used drones on those who attacked the World Trade Towers. We would have close to 3,000 people having coffee, going to church, or planning a relaxing day with their families.

It would be great to live in the dream world that everyone is peaceful and people don't want to harm others. That is fiction not reality. If people are planning and promoting attacks on innocent people, and our country sat by and did nothing, they would not being doing their job. You are entitled to your opinion, and I am entitled to mine. There hasn't been another 9/11 so we must be doing something right.”

“Because when the Church spread the Christian faith into Europe, it made the decision to "substitute" many of its main holy days for existing pagan ones to make the transition less upsetting for the locals, even as it took many pagan deities and transformed them into "saints" so the people who already worshipped them could hold onto those traditions and put up less of a fight at the change. Christmas is a substitute for the holiday of Yule, which is celebrated with a "Yule log", feasting and decorations of mistletoe, holly and evergreens. Sound familiar? :-)”

“we need to take a look at the physician's adage of "first do no harm". I think our perceived need to "do something" and "keep us safe" with "no boots on the ground" stem from our national paranoia about terrorism where we are driven to act without reflection. there's another adage: "prescription without proper diagnosis is malpractice" which is what our military, high tech response looks like when we rely on it to the exclusion of more peaceful resolutions to the problems confronting us in the world.”

“Sadly, I agree.

obama won in the first place on a very thin resume. The media did him a pretty big favor by leaving him alone during the campaign. Not much vetting.

I can't explain the second term. He didn't produce much during the first term to warrant a second.

Mitt wasn't a great candidate, but he was head and shoulders above McCain. I honestly think Mitt had a better plan for jobs and fixing the economy. Unfortunately the democratic echo chamber killed his chances.

This country is in dire straits. Unfortunately I think most Americans lack the attention span to elect someone who isn't a cult of personality...seems like we (well, some of us) are interested in the wrong things.”

“nope. it was the reagan administration that was played by saddam.According to retired Army Colonel W. Patrick Lang, senior defense intelligence officer for the United States Defense Intelligence Agency at the time, "the use of gas on the battlefield by the Iraqis was not a matter of deep strategic concern" to Reagan and his aides, because they "were desperate to make sure that Iraq did not lose." Lang disclosed that more than 60 officers of the Defense Intelligence Agency were secretly providing detailed information on Iranian deployments. He cautioned that the DIA "would have never accepted the use of chemical weapons against civilians, but the use against military objectives was seen as inevitable in the Iraqi struggle for survival." Despite this claim, the Reagan administration did not stop aiding Iraq after receiving reports affirming the use of poison gas on Kurdish civilians.”
