    It seems you know nothing of Nicaragua either. Were you cheering for the Communists?

    Re: Head of the Pakistani Taliban Killed by US Drone Strike

    [QUOTE=Sherman123;1062493765]The leader of the Pakistani Taliban, Hakimullah Mehsud, has been killed in a US drone strike sources are confirming to the BBC.

    BBC News - Hakimullah Mehsud killed by drone, Pakistan Taliban say

    Again??? How many times do we have to kill the leader of the Taliban before he's dead? Don't they kill him about twice a month? And the net gain is.....?

    They keep coming up with new ones apparently, though some may be getting more reluctant to run for their highest office. There is now less status in the job and the risk/reward factors are growing further apart.

    How ignorant. It's just going to snow again tomorrow, our schoolyard enemies will have ammo!!!!!

    I don't give a **** about ideology, at all, but you're right, it's silly.
    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.

    Sure, but that is still no justification for endless war in the ME that we find ourselves in.

    They are enemies as supporters of Al-Qaueda (among other things) and as such we should be conducting such strikes and disposing of our enemies through death or being prisoners of war.
    Allah is their leader. People on the ground are just full of rhetoric and hate that they can relate to.

    1. Per both the USA's and international law, killing that is not in self defense, not on a battlefield and not after a trial is considered murder.

    2. Many of the people targetted by drones are not enemies of the USA, they are involved in Yemen and Somalia's civil wars.

    3. I don't believe that a handful of government officials acting in secret with limited information should be trusted to pick people to assassinate all over the world. I belive in due process and fair trials, formerly considered a traditional "American" value.
    So, here you have an enemy combatant who has bragged about being the mastermind of a suicide attack that killed several people, and because you support his mission, you consider him some sort of innocent civilian and bemoan his killing as "murder".

    Got it.

    You sure can't show much more support than that.

    The only way to fight terrorism, which has no state, is to keep them endlessly on the run and killing their leaders as we find them. It's just what they are; there is no reasoning with them.

    Leave them alone and let them get organized, and another 9/11 will follow, multiplied by 10.
