    Do you think bombing others in Countries that one has not declared War on should be considered a Lawful Action? Do you hold the same concepts when innocent people are killed from those strikes?
    Actually, we have been killing the rank and file terrorists for 4 years. The drone missions have been successful with very little collateral damage. As for it being lawful, it seems to be because the UN has not weighed in and declared it unlawful. We also have the cooperation from the governments we are conducting drone strikes in. As for the innocent people who are killed from these strikes, it is not good, but the efford to keep collateral damage down is to be commended. It is much better than waging war or just turning a blind eye to the problem.

    A "hand full?" This is just one location. Multiply this by 23 and that's a very conservative estimation.

I suspect they blame the USA because they hate anything not radical muslim though
    It's good to hear someone understands how news travels in some of these countries. THey do not have freedom of the press, so they are spoon fed things that make the US look bad and that inflames these things causing riots and such. Because of the Arab Spring, a lot of these people are finally able to protest and use their freedom of speech, and it is easy for me to see how that can be misguided given it is a new experience for most of them. I think, if you look back on US history, the same was true during our revolt from England. It takes time to change how people think and once these people learn to think more critically, we will see these things happen.

    So we should take away their right to free speech because they get upset about ours?

    OBL had been out of the loop of decision making for a long time. His effectiveness as a terrorist had long since passed. Killing him was anti-climactic.

    What about the rest of the Islamic world? Now Obama needs to deal with them effectively. Unfortunately, I don't think he can.

    No.....I am the one that says their Religious Leaders who called them to violence, should be out there Calming things down. That they should be reading from their good book about not attacking the innocent while standing in front of the Embassies.
