    You even agreed that it was. (http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1061543364)

    I see you are nothing but a liar, but guess what? Now you're nothing but a liar on my ignore list.

    Nonsense

    When the police encounter an american killing people, they kill them without due process. They don't wait for a trial. They just shoot

    Now, the military can use a drone to do something similar

    In any case there are two issues here. Killing of American citizens who are on American soil and killing American citizens who are on Foreign soil. The administration says the first is wrong except in cases of imminent threat, and it says the second is permissible when the person has become by their actions an enemy who merely threatens the US. I agree with the administration on both counts.
    So, by this logic, every enemy combatant in Gitmo should be executed. No jury, no trial, no muss, no fuss.

    I believe there is only One issue. Killing of Americans by the US Government. The location is completely immaterial.

    But in the context of drones, it could never be acceptable to fire a missile to kill the person who is killing others.

    Au contraire

    If a drone strike stops or ends a terrorist attack, it would be more than acceptable

    Give an example, using history if you like, in which a drone strike would have ended (not prevented) a terrorist attack in progress, and not result in the deaths of innocents.

    Sure it is. Such as the “terrorist” attack you posit.

    There are a few American citizens that I wish we could vaporize with a predator launched hellfire missile.

    I must say that while this comes as a surprise, the words "can't" and "won't" are two different things. In addition to this, it states clearly "on American soil" so Obama can still kill you if you leave the country.
    Hell, the SPLC labels patriots as "terrorists" and presently union thug teachers are teaching kids patriotism is "terrorism."

    The flipping government is setting precedent and manufacturing a new breed that will accept the destruction of patriots.

    As far as the drones - If I can see it I will shoot it down and recover it, posting pictures while making a vid to put on youtube.

    Re: White House admits it can't kill Americans with drones in US

    I am the worlds most notorious serial killer and child rapist. I have killed hundreds and kidnapped babies, which I roasted and ate. I also happen to be able to teleport, not easily, but I can.

    Your snitch tells you that I am in apartment building. Its a big building and there are dozens of people living there. You can't alert them without alerting me. If I get away again, I'll kill many more people.

    Is it OK to bomb the building?







    (I'm now retired from cereal killing and I prefer Sushi to babies)

    I like the trigger words (no pun of course) but I own and live in a house.
