Especially if you are in some place considered a foreign warzone by the US government. really, do you expect the US military to cease it's drone strikes if an american citizen happens to be present voluntarily supporting those who we are at war with? That seems a little absurd to me. I would also happen to think that if obama and holder were not the ones talking about this you might consider a person who leaves america to join a fight against it's military in a foreign war as an enemy combatant and getting what they deserve. You are claiming that it makes you very nervous that the US would use a drone to kill a person who is technically a US citizen while they are fighting against them in a place like afganistan.

    No no, don't let me stop you from running with that. It is wrong in your mind for obama and the US military to act against a US citizen who has joined opposing forces in a war according to you. i am perfectly fine with them using a drone strike to kill that sort of person in a war, but if you think our military should endanger itself and its safety in a warzone I welcome you to your opinion.
    You really have no idea what this thread is about, do you? Of course you don't. All you think you know is that someone criticized Obama and you have to do something about it.

    It is just amazing how back in the bush years these partisan people would have been happy to have drones killing off traitors who aid the enemy. Damn, we were almost ready to string up reporters for drawing pictures in the sand back then. But now that obama is there the opinions have changed. Now it is dangerous for the military to be at war and shoot americans who are assisting the enemy. Some of us share the same opinion now as we did back then that if you are out there assisting the enemy in fighting against the US military and you geta missile rammed up your ass for your efforts, then good. if it makes you nervous that you might be whacked by the military outside the country, you are paranoid, and you can stay in the US where they say they cannot use drone strikes.

    i am wondering why these guys are so scared of a drone strike in their world tour, but none of the other tools of death that the US military has deployed all over the world scare them. could it be that drones have been associated with Obama, and are a military weapon they can differentiate from all other military weapons to pretend obama is evil? My thought is if the military was going to kill you on foreign soil where there is no present war they would use a good old fashioned gun and bullets. They work well, they are cheaper than a drone flight, and they tend not to inflame other peaceful countries as much as unmanned drones killing people on their streets. far be it from me to stop the drone paranoia.

    Hacks and partisans on both sides have picked up on this and ran with it, imagining all kids of CIA black drones flying overhead taking about Americans for the smallest of infractions.

    If Drones were used to patrol the mexican boarder that would okay with the right, but the left would be upset. The reverse would be true if drones were used to take down an anti-government militia group.

    If Drones were used to scout for hidden marijuana crops in Humbolt county, the left would be up in arms. However, if drones were used to monitor carbon emissions from a specific power plant, the right would scream foul.

    See, so no perfectly reasonable and legal use of drones over the American homeland will be 100% okay. One has to wonder why we keep making more of them.

    in other words, you have no argument so you are going to play the partisan hackery line. it is not my fault you guys latched onto a completely partisan load of BS yet again. the response came from a completely partisan and BS bit of grandstanding from rand paul. You cheer it on and then get mad when others find it completely pointless. the military has always been restricted from acting on US soil unless it is wartime or some massive emergency. despite the claims from partisan news sources, obama has not changed that reality. obama has not taken over the country and subverted it's military for his own purposes. yes, even though the fix noise crazies and the becktards claim it daily, it has not happened. the statement pul got was the same position the military has had for years.

    You will notice people were getting completely fed up with the repeated battles against the obama nominations which really were a lot of wasted time for failure. I find it interesting that Paul has done the same delay tactic, but instead of looking like the same old fail because the nomination was going through anyway, he distracted people by pretending this was about drone strikes on US soil. It was a brilliant peice of distraction an you fell for it. he got his predictable statement so it looks like a victory to you, yet you still can complain about the contents of the victory.

    yes, i know exactly what this was bout. it was about wasting our time and distracting people with the same old BS fight because both parties are on the same side when it comes to money and power.

    My opinion is that you don't have a clue what we're talking about. This whole thing stemmed from questions posed to Eric Holder regarding possible drone strikes against Americans (that posed no immediate threat) in America. Try not to cramp up from that chronic knee jerk condition you have.

    Your "points" were about something that didn't have anything to do with the topic of this thread.

    Something you STILL haven't figured out.

    I think it's starting to dawn on him, but it is funny to see him to pretend he knew all along.
