    Congress made clear after 9/11 that an actor does not need to be a formal state to be an enemy of the United States. And it made clear that nations which harbor Islamic jihadists are enemies just like the jihadists. The U.S. cannot allow jihadists to gain immunity from attack just by hiding in nations whose governments do not fully control their territories-- whether they hide in cities or elsewhere in those nations.

    Lol! Show me where he said THAT!

    I guess Ike and Bradley didn't read Clausewitz, because 15,000 French civilians were killed by Allied ordnance during Operation Overlord.

    And unless we go to war with those countries, we cannot simply eradicate entire cities.

    That's not true. It would be a MAJOR debate by the international community, but there's no formal writing set in stone for that case as those cities are occupied by terrorists. As we know, if it aint in writing, it's fair game.

    you are saying we should be kept in the dark
    and the media - the fourth estate - should do that
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    They would love that. Why do you suppose they continue to purposely commit atrocities and film and promote their actions worldwide. Why? What is their intent? What is it they want most to gain by their actions?

    They're hoping their brutality will intimidate the hand wringers into doing nothing.

    So mass killing of innocents would achieve what? You state you are against drone attacks by Obama, yet are for mass killing by bombing cities.
    I am confused by what you are posting as they are diametrically opposed.
    So I wait your clarification.

    I never stated my opposition for them. I merely said Obama killed women and children at a wedding when he droned it.

    I don't mind dead terrorists by drone or tomohawk missile.

    Nice attempt to LIE though
