    A Hellfire missile strike from a drone is not equivalent to bombing with Daisy Cutters.

    But if you have a better idea for decapitating the AQ hierarchy in Yemen, I’d certainly love to hear it.

    100,000, maybe a million dead Iraquis, and you think a high incidence of civilian casualties would rule that out. You can understudy to GWSoupForBrains mouthin' dat trash. Inspiring, high sounding, emanations from the south end of a northbound polecat.

    However, I'm glad Saudi Arabia is cooperating with us in this situation.
    There's a helluva lot more justification to going into Yemen than there is Uganda. Last time I checked, AQ doesn't have a chapter in Uganda.

    The only problem with your logic, is that there have been more Iraqis killed by the insurgents than by American ordnance, which begs the questions: Why aren't the Iraqis hatin' on the insurgetns like they supposedly hate us?

    Piling up a dead bodies of innocent people, women, and children is piling up dead bodies and giving people an excuse to flee into the mountains to take up militant arms. There is no difference.

    This is certainly working. Look the past ten years. Terrorism is being curtailed and contained in Yemen, rather than spreading. Working like a charm.

    Given your temper tantrum in our pm's, I am surprised that you engaged me, especially when my post was not directed at you. Are you throw a fit and storm out again?

    Even with precision Hellfire strikes, there is always the possibility of civilian casualties. I've been to the Predator command center in Nevada. The drone flight teams there are extremely professional and topnotch.

    Tell that the relatives and friends to the pile of dead bodies that they are creating. "Sorry about slaughtering your innocents, women, and children, but we have some very professional and topnotch people working on this."

    Its working like a charm as terrorism keeps spreading to different countries.

    Do you have evidence of, "piling up bodies"? Photos, perhaps?

    All I have to say to people who are mad because civilians get smoked during an attack, is they shouldn't have be hanging so close with a known terrorist.

    I already link one incident and times that by the number of drones attacks and bombings that have been carried out.

    This is the attitude that is jeopardizing more lives, including American soldiers. The more we justify and kill innocent, women, and children, the more ammo we create for militarism. No wonder our war on terrorism is approaching a decade, with no end in site, as terrorism spreads across to new countries.
