    Re: US drone strikes may break international law: UN

    Well I agree with post #1 that the UN deeds to go the way of the Great Auk. It outlived it's usefulness the same day it was formed.

    US drone strikes against suspected terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan could be breaking international laws against summary executions, the UN's top investigator of such crimes said.
    Using this logic killing the enemy on the battle field is also breaking International Law.
    It's bad enough we have to deal with home grown Liberalism now the UN I believe is emboldened because of Obama being a Socialist/Communist who is proven to be weak on such issues as Terrorism and is willing to appease regardless of the cost in U.S. Security or in American lives as is seen in his delay on critical decisions while our young people are dying in Afghanistan.
    I believe if you look around you'll see that I have posted a solution to not only this issue but world peace that would do away with the false belief that we need the UN at all.

    Don't be snarky. Fighting a "kinder" "gentler" war really is stupid. You can't win friends and influence people that way. You kill the enemy in larger numbers than he kills of ours and you don't relent until they stop coming your way. Lose this war in afghanistan and you will only embolden our enemies and weaken our allies. This "dithering" of the present administration is doing just that.

    No you show up in a way that your first invasion can happen without a single bullet. If our presence is welcome there surely we could have found some opening point right? You don't bomb the **** out of more innocent than good in situations like Operation Shock and Awe. The mission title itself gives it up for a terrorist like scare tactic.

    We are in occupied territories to reign by controlled chaos. Make chaos for everything except this little bit you need to control. And you have the greatest chance to win in the end. But it seems the most cutthroat. It is just how I feel about dehumanizing and almost fully automatizing the death industry.

    Using robots to dispense of life is saying, "Your safety isn't important enough for more of our lives... But well throw money at the situation and use wide reaching explosion assassinations to Team America your country. On par with suicide bombers. (who are assholes that target their political rivals with bombs without care for the innocent around) To be on the same side of the coin of oppression but with a heavier hand and better technology is just?

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"

    I'll be as snarky as I want, I have the intellect to back it up. You've mischaracterized what I had written. The point was to address the real problems in the area and make some attempt at getting to a root cause. Killing tons of people isn't going to solve the problem. You're not going to run out of terrorists. Setting up "democracy" doesn't necessarily mean there will be no terrorists (IRA for example). Killing innocent people isn't going to get us anywhere.

    What is losing the war in Afghanistan? What is a time frame? What are reasonable goals? It's not laid out. What is the cost of "failure"? What does "failure" look like? People keep saying these things, but no one (so it seems) has thought about any of this. Do we even have legitimate power to go into Pakistan and bomb civilian areas claiming there are terrorists there? For ****'s sake, when the hell did the US become God?

    If we're not going to think about the root causes of any of this, we're not going to get to a solution. If we're not driving towards solution, there's no point to continued fighting. All it will be is wasted human life.

    As long as these drones are breaking terrorist heads, who cares about legality?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    You can keep your delusions.

    Afghanistan appointed Osama bin Laden as their Commander in Chief in August 2001.

    Can you inform the class what happened in September, 2001?

    And 8 years later...how far have we come? How much longer you want to go at this? How many more American lives do we need to throw at a mishandled and misguided war? How many more civilians in all sectors must perish, be destroyed, have their lives uprooted till we are satiated? We've killed well more than 3,000 civilians in the area, are we even yet?
