"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I have no problem with drone bombing training camps, hide outs, stockpiles, communication centers -- anything to wipe extremists off the face of the planet.
Who are we to say we're right? We're Superman, and with great power comes great responsibility. President Obama and those that fight terrorists carry that burden.
Could this be a potential problem -- ultimate power ultimately corrupts? Dick Cheney? WMD lies taking us into war?
That's why the integrity of the 4th estate is so important--so that corrupted officials always get exposed.
It's funny that people such as yourself don't see an issue with the drone program. If another country flew drones over out land and dropped Hellfires on us, we'd be going to war.
“Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.” ― Ron Paul
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. – Thomas Jefferson
I was asking you a rhetorical question that implied you were being a hypocrite with regard to your criticism of President Obama.
Relaying facts on record is not 'preaching'. I'm noting the lack of criticism about an unjust war vs. the current criticism toward justified military action. The right was okay with 'enhanced interrogation' but using intel to take out high-value targets is somehow bad because it's President Obama.And don't preach to me about WMD's, Iraq, etc. You didn't have to go fight the war that you knew was based on fautly intel.
I recall several planes filled with people and jet fuel being hijacked in flown into buildings. That is a legitimate reason to go to war. Though the action was not sponsored by any one particular country, (e.g. Japan Pear Harbor) we are still morally justified in wiping every terrorist cell off the face of the earth. Unfortunately, weeding your yard is a process that never seems to end.It's funny that people such as yourself don't see an issue with the drone program. If another country flew drones over out land and dropped Hellfires on us, we'd be going to war.
...oh I already said that, hehe.
