    I removed that point and shouldn't have included it.

    If you read any of the dozen links, reports, and studies that have been posted in this thread you would see this evidenced.

    How about, and I know this is a totally crazy idea, we just not bomb these countries in the first place? No need to worry about civilian deaths, since we won't be killing anyone at all!

    How about we do nothing at all about anything and just hope it works out?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    The sad thing about this story is not that it's now being done by the use of drones, it's the fact that the US is still killing more people than it admits.

    On a positive note, Obama is doing it in a way that the US would refer to as 'surgical strikes', as opposed to carpet bombing and the indiscriminate bombing of whole villages, towns, and cities as they did in Viet Nam and Cambodia.

    Not that Obama should be lauded the praise too much though, he's still carrying out the killing.

    Americans who object to the use of drones are just more racists and haters who are looking for a reason to blame Obama again. The same people who would happily applaud the use of huge destructive weapons on whole cities. Nobody should be fooled about that fact!

    The only one who is doing any dodging here is you- I have no use for those who, like you, appear to support terrorists.

    The day will never come that I will be doing your research for you.
