    No problem.

    I'm a supporter of limited drone strikes, on known and verifiable terrorist targets.

    As to my response, for clarification, the Paki's have every right to shoot down any non-Paki military aircraft that crosses their border. For that matter, it's their country, and they can shoot down whatever they want, whenever they want.

    We also have the right to strike enemies of the US whenever we locate them, and wherever they are. If the Paki's and the A-stani's want our strikes to stop, then they should get the terrorists themselves, unless they support the terrorists which if verified would open up more targets.

    It makes logical sense to me.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I agree. Cut off aid, and leave. Don't allow visas from that country.

    That will not happen. What will happen is that US aid will continue, we will leave the area after pulling out of Afghanistan and the situation will allow the Jihad to continue while funded, in part, by us.

    I know. It is sad. We can't commit to our own goals as a nation.

    Exactly. The US is gonna do what's in American interests and the Pakistanis are going to do what's in their interest. Neither side is right or wrong.

    Have fun shooting em down boys, there's always more!

    When we first started using drones on Pakis/Afghani terrorists, I approved and thought they were a good idea. Fighting terrorism with terrorism. Terrorists sneak out and attack with suicide bombers that they have trained and equipped. This causes deaths of lots of innocents and not so innocents. Terrorism. Fight fire with fire and along come these stealthy drones to zip a missile up some Jihadi's rectum while at a meeting to organize another suicide bombing or something similar. It's all good. Along comes Military administration and suddenly there are lots more targets because every General wants to use all his toys and the careful selection of targets becomes less selective and innocents are killed. It is an administrative problem that can be solved by firing a few top military or CIA, if that is who is operating the drone strikes. Killings of women and children are unnecessary and unforgiveable. Heads should roll. Otherwise, I think the drone program is a great weapon against terrorists.

    That doesn't establish the infinity war and as such is useless to the Corporate State.
