You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

So until someone, anyone can come up with a better way of killing them, I’m not going to argue against the drone attacks, the alternative of just letting them go, isn’t acceptable to me.
I'm kind of not kidding. If we're cool with killing innocents, then it shouldn't matter how many we kill. Think of Iran as a vast glass wasteland for example....
It’s my opinion that every since WWII we have sent out men and women of the armed forces in to be killed without the intent of winning. We need to stay out of others affairs, in the case of 9/11 it should have been said to any country, okay we have good sound intel that OBL is being harbored in your country, you have X number of days to tell us where he is or turn him over to us, after that you can expect The USA to do everything and anything deemed necessary to get him.
Show the world that when you attack the US on our soil, that we will utterly destroy you. If you have to do that once every 20 or 25 years, in my opinion it’s better then fighting an endless stream of wars with no intent on winning anything.
We actually did a great job of that in the past. The first Iraq war. The post-9/11 Afghanistan overthrow of Mullah Omar. But then it whets our appetite for the bloodlust and the money-lust and we enter decade long wars that eat away at our souls. That how we got baby Bush's Iraq war and his extension of the Afghanistan war. We never learn to sat goodbye.
Accomplish the mission and get the **** out. Use all necessary force.
Good for us I say. No border in this world should be safe for Al-Qaeda to hide behind.

The only thing I do know, is when the US is attacked on our soil, I want a response that is so severe that it will cause anyone thinking of doing it again to have 2nd and 3rd thoughts.
Again Iím not for innocent civilians being killed, but until someone can come up with a more effective way, then using drones, Iím not going to be against them. They do kill terrorists, we put no American troop lives in danger, and from all the non biased information I can find they have a better percentage of terrorist deaths to civilian deaths of any other means we have available to us at this time.
