    Is that the question we should ask before each potential operation?

    It ends when our enemy has had enough. Or it ends when we submit to Islam. Which of those two options do you prefer?

    Actually that would do it. When no more Islamofascists exist this war will end.

    Awesome. I admire your optimism.

    I think we should continue killing these guys because it is just so much fun.

    Using your logic I think we should shoot for a goal of making them invincible. Let's kill then by the bushel full.

    Therefore what? Submission to Islam?

    First you need to grow up. Islam has been at war with the rest of the world since roughly 700AD. The Barbary Pirates were Islamofascists. As long as Islam exists there will be Islamofascists. The world has always been a dangerous place. That is why we band together to form governments. If you are asking the question, "Why do they hate us?" you are asking the wrong question.

    Exactly. I can see the justification for this in Yemen even more so than if it were to take place in Iraq and Afghanistan, since the US doesn't have a large presence there. I would hope that only under these severe conditions when there is truly no alternative would such a thing happen.

    The Ron Paul / ACLU position is important to take note of however, because at the end of the day, a US citizen was killed by a US strike with no legal process whatsoever, excepting a presidential order. Agree or disagree, we must all appreciate the fact that this citizen was killed only because the POTUS ordered it. That should be a frightening thing to consider.

    No moreso than being called a racist at every turn for simply disagreeing with, or criticizing someone.

    So, there's no way you could ever believe anything a Muslim said ever? Sounds like we're in for a long war. Hell, I bet if I thought like that, I'd think it was best to kill "them" all... I'm sure that's not what's in your heart... or is it?

    No. Wrong. Incorrect. The purposeful denegration of religious practice is entierly different than disagreeing.

    Your post is quite dishonest. It is known as "Dishonest my omission". You have been reported, and I hope the Mods bust your chops on this. However, for the rest here who may not understand, here is the entire quote. Not that your post was valid regardless, but at least you could attempt to be accurate. The bolding is what you cherry picked, omitting the rest:

    Libs. If you are that worried about losing your "rights" as Al-Dirtbag did, then I have some excellent advice. Don't put a towel on your head, then move to Yemen, then engage in the planning and implementation of attacks against the US of A and its non-hostile citizens. And last but not least, when you see yourself on the news, falsely accused of being an enemy of the US of A, then turn yourself in to US authorities, and we will straightren it out "judiciously".
