    Obviously you aren't aware that "war" to a Islamic extremist isn't a war they fight to win.

    Suicide killing in the name of Allah is their grandest achievement.

    Anyone who thinks this will stop Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, terrorism, or international distaste for American drone activity on foreign soil, is clutching to fool's gold in an over-eager attempt to feel like we are actually getting somewhere with all this.

    I should expect more wisdom in this forum. After 12 years nonetheless.

    No one needed affirmation that drones are effective killing machines. Murder can be an effective political strategy for the short tem. It is not proven that killing leads to long term peace, justice and stability.

    Of course it does. The Indian Wars are proof of that. So is WW2. We killed a ****load of Germans and Japanese; straightened their asses out just fine.

    I don't know if you remember, but when we invaded Afghanistan Taliban members defected en masse. A lot of people joined the Taliban for ethnic rather than religious reasons, or were simply forced into it at a young age. If the leaders won't be willing to listen to reason, then at least some of the soldiers will.

    Killing yerrorists no more creates terrorists than insulting Islam makes Muslims hate Americans.

    You are correct that killing can resolve conflicts, when the killing and destruction is done to near genocidal levels. However, you can't consider it long term justice when genocide was committed.

    Killing the enemy isn't genocide.

    There is no winner there. Much less us.
