    In warfare there is no such thing as proportionate or disproportionate response. That is something Israeli bashers made up to whine about Israel wiping out terrorists. I value the life of a soldier and law enforcement agent more than I do some piece of **** who betrayed his country by siding with the enemy and left it.So I would rather a bomb be dropped on that piece of **** than for an American solder or law enforcement agent risk their life to go kill or arrest some piece of **** terrorist traitor.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    We didn't. The Paki intel outfit captured him in a raid on his home.

    How closely do Yemeni intel services work with the United States?

    Look at the bright side: Awlaki is dead, so there won't be any boo-hooing about him getting roughed up a little.

    The only honor in war, is winning and coming home, intact, both mentally and physically.

    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".

    While I wholeheartedly applaud this killing/assassination or whatever they call it, this here is a load of horse****.

    Aside from that, DPC's comment was about honor, not about disproportionate responses.

    I was addressing those who did not agree, and thank you for your position on that aspect. However, you need to learn what racism is, and is not. The process that I laid out was not predicated to only putting a towel on one's head. It was the whole sequence. For instance, I can put my bath towel on my head right now and not worry about a bomb dropping on my head as a result.

    Otherwise, you know where to put your race card.

    Then explain to us all what the "race card" was. Al dirt-bag was a white guy, btw. Get a clue.

    Here's a hint. "Jihadist" is not a race.

    your comment about "a towel on your head", was racist.
