    Predator Drones Could Face Legal Challenges From Human Rights Advocates

    Human rights activists at odds with President Obama over his recent national security decisions are indicating that they might legally challenge the U.S. military's use of Predator drones, a weapon that intelligence officials say is their single most effective tool in combating Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    IOW failing with their White Phosphorous routine they now pick something they know will garner attention. One of the most successful in this war weapons in our arsenal.


    "This is part of a broader campaign on the left to begin the drumbeat of withdrawal from Afghanistan and Pakistan generally to change the direction there and make it about only providing aid and not about military engagement," Bennett said.

    I especially love how they use the plight of civilians. Same people who advocate abandoning civilians to mass murderers want you to believe they care about civilians.

    Anything to weaken America is fair game.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    As I read it, it is a handful of people on the ultra far left. Predator is not going away, and should not. Both sides have their people too far out on the edge to be even close to mainstream, and these are people like that.

    By repetitious spewing the Far Left has convinced the Moderate Left that abandoning people to terrorist is not only just but right..as long as you blame Bush while you do it.

    Depleted Uranium is a good example of that as well...as is Napalm.

    Huh? You got anything in there other than the usual ultra right wing spew? Any evidence at all that this is anything beyond a few ulta left wing nutjobs?

    "Even when you're attacking a legitimate military objective, you cannot cause civilian casualties that exceed the value of a legitimate military attack," Rona says.
    What a ridiculous load of double speak.

    The Predator works, works well and doesn't endanger American lives so of course the whackadoodles on the far left want it stopped.

    That's what it sounds like to me, too. I don't think this is really gonna go anywhere at all.

    Oh Bull****, the far far left has done nothing of the sort to convince the moderates on the left to follow their lead.

    Keep dreaming. All sides have their respective whackos.

    Extremist left wing jerkwads. Let them make their challenge. The right has theirs, the left has theirs. **** all of 'em with a ten foot pole. These idiots shouldn't be getting any press at all.
