    I lived it OWO. That's way better, and more memorable, than reading about it years later. John Yoo is a domestic enemy of the US Constitution, and his boss considered it to be but a piece of paper.

    Are you offering up this man as being wise and honorable? I hope not

    Could you elaborate on that common offense thing?

    Lawsuit over American drone strikes dismissed by U.S. judge | Reuters

    This is injustice on many different levels.

    1. The US government has not declared war on any nation, specifically Yemen.
    2. This was a targeted assassination, not a battle in any war zone.
    3. It was SPECIFICALLY directed at American citizens, civilians, not foreign troops.
    4. In legal terms, the dismissal is a violation of the First Amendment's protected right of redress.

    I'm sure there's more but these are some of the main issues.
    I think the judge was right, there is no legal basis for any of those points.

    We are conducting warfare in Yemen.We are not at war with Yemen.You can not declare war on groups of people or individuals.


    No one wants innocent civilians killed, have you been drinking?
    If you support drone strike in a country that we are not at war with just to nail a few alleged terrorists then you.

    Many people, though, are willing to live within a margin of error. You are, for example.
    The innocent people killed are just a margin of error to you?That is some ****ed up thinking.
    I might. Because I'm not all emotion. Are you?
    I consider myself a nationalist/patriotic American. I would never support another country dropping bombs in the US.Borders mean something to me. The fact that you would even consider another nation supporting this to our country proves that you are unpatriotic and therefore anti-American.


    Oh stop. It worked in the Philippines. Are you just spouting off talking points now? This is so sad
    .


    What is sad is you supporting dropping bombs in countries we are not at war with.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    lol "proves"? hahahahahha

    What is sad is you supporting dropping bombs in countries we are not at war with.
    Err...it's somehow "less sad"? Your arguments don't even make any sense.

    We are not at war with Yemen so this is not war.

    Patriotic Americans do not support other nations using military force inside American borders.

    Err...it's somehow "less sad"? Your arguments don't even make any sense.
    What is sad is you trying to justify this nonsense of declaring war on individuals or groups as a means of conducting warfare on countries we are not at war with.

    Sure, okay.

    We are not at war with Yemen so this is not war.
    No, we're at war with al Qaeda.

    I disagree.

    We're not conducting war on Yemen. You statement is nonsensical.

    The US government also disagrees with e constitution. So the US government doesn't have any credibility on what is and isn't right.

    No, we're at war with al Qaeda.
    A huge line of BS used to conduct war in other countries without actually declaring war.

    I disagree.
    Many closet globalist pieces of **** agree with you.Borders and national soverignty mean anything to them.So they would agree with another another country using military force inside our borders.


    We're not conducting war on Yemen. You statement is nonsensical.
    We are conducting war in Yemen therefore we are conducting war on Yemen.

    Nor do you. Nor is your interpretation of the constitution necessarily right. It's sad a grown man (apparently?) needs to be told that.

    Declaring war isn't necessary.

    Many closet globalist pieces of **** agree with you.Borders and national soverignty mean anything to them.So they would agree with another another country using military force inside our borders.
    What? Who cares?

    We are conducting war in Yemen therefore we are conducting war on Yemen.
    Er...no. That makes no sense. Or as much sense as "You are Tom Hanks because I say you're Tom Hanks".
