    OK, from 6 months ago, I see that I didn't think an invasion of Libya to save 4 lives was good. You turned that into I don't have a problem with drones in Pakistan. I don't particularly, but I don't get the connection.

    Once that point had been reached, was there really much that could be done? Once the hole's been blown through the wall, you're a bit late to the party.

    Would you have been in favor of invading Libya to save 4 lives? That's basically what you're talking about.

    Why did the Ambassador go to Benghazi when he knew it was unsafe? He could have stayed in Tripoli.

    You're worried about the President not being exactly transparent about National Security, but you can't answer these questions. Basically, what do you want to have been done differently?

    We wouldn't have needed to "invade" Libya as it was Libyan government that offered the C130 to transport US security personnel to Benghazi from Tripoli...

    If I remember correctly, some moron President back in 1994 authorised the signing of the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention ban on CS gas (teargas) that prohibits the U.S. military using CS gas on the enemy. The U.S. military is only allowed to use CS gas on American soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen.

    Well, thanks for making me look that up so we both learn something.

    Although most often associated with civilian police forces, tear gas and pepper spray still play a role with the U.S. military – primarily with the U.S. Marine Corps – which uses the non-lethal agents to help with riot and crowd control. Marines are also trained on how to use tear gas and pepper spray for self-defense, either against other people or animals such as bears and dogs.

    U.S. Marines are frequently exposed to tear gas and pepper spray during training. This helps familiarize Marines with the effects of the agents and teaches them how to function and perform their jobs after they have been exposed to the gas and spray. Although the U.S. Army concluded in a 1993 report that exposure to pepper spray and tear gas may lead to serious problems such as cancer and heart disease, these agents continue to be used as a means of subduing enemies and civilian populations without killing them.

    Then shame on them, and those like you for empowering them with your rabid defense for partisan pleasure rather than what is right and should be corrected.

    >" Use of CS in war is prohibited under the terms of the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention, signed by most nations in 1993 with all but five other nations signing between the years of 1994 through 1997. The reasoning behind the prohibition is pragmatic: use of CS by one combatant could easily trigger retaliation with much more toxic chemical weapons such as nerve agents. Only five nations have not signed the Chemical Weapons Convention and are therefore unhindered by restrictions on the use of CS gas: Angola, Egypt, North Korea, Somalia, and Syria.[18]

    Domestic police use of CS is legal in many countries, however, as the Chemical Weapons Convention prohibits only military use... "<

    >" Members of the United States armed forces are exposed to CS during initial training, and during training refresher courses or equipment maintenance exercises, using CS tablets that are melted on a hotplate. This is to demonstrate the importance of properly wearing a gas or protective mask, as the agent's presence quickly reveals an improper fit or seal of the mask's rubber gaskets against the face. Following exposure while wearing a mask, recruits are ordered to remove the masks and endure exposure in the room for one minute. These exercises also encourage confidence in the ability of the equipment to protect the wearer from such chemical attacks. Such an event is a requirement for graduation from United States Army Basic Training, Air Force Basic Military Training, Navy Basic Training, and Marine Corps recruit training.[62] CS gas in the form of grenades is also used extensively in the United States Marine Corps in some service schools. CS gas is used during the final field exercise of the Scout Sniper Basic Course to simulate being compromised. In addition, it is used during the 25 km (16 mi) escape-and-evasion exercise ("Trail of Tears"), the last event before graduation from the course. It is also used during several events in the Marine Corps Basic Reconnaissance Course (BRC) including some rucksack runs and escape-and-evasion exercises. While students going through the course are given the opportunity to bring and wear a gas mask for the event, usually none are worn because once donned, gas masks could not be removed until the end of the exercise. This could last anywhere from 3–12 hours and would make running 25 km while wearing 125 lb (57 kg) of gear virtually impossible.

    [edit] VietnamIt has been reported that thousands of tons of CS gas were used by the U.S. forces in Vietnam to bring Viet Cong into the open. It was also used by the North Vietnamese forces in some battles like Hue in 1968 or during the Easter Offensive in 1972 "<

    ^^The attack on the embassy in Libya was not a part of a war. It was a terrorist attack. The use of CS gas would be allowed
