    Perhaps not - what you refer to is deliberate on the part of the bombers. Obama has simply ordered bombings that occasionally takes out men, women and children attending a wedding celebration - I'm sure that wasn't his intent - that's what makes it indiscriminate.

    Yup... Only in Texas... [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Read the story. The truck was attempting to flee, and was refusing to stop for law enforcement. IMHO, that makes it a target. Also, the troopers did not shoot the immigrants. They shot out the tires of the truck because the driver was evading arrest, then the truck crashed. That there were illegal immigrants in the truck makes this unfortunate, but the driver should have obeyed the law and stopped. The immigrants should have also obeyed the law and waited in line to come here.

    Doesn't matter whether it was intentional or not. Obama is to blame for the killing of innocent people. He has blood on his hands.

    My point, lost on some I suppose, is that if you kill innocent people using a drone bomb or a shot from a helicopter, there is no difference. Both indiscriminately ignore innocent life that may be lost in securing, in their opinion, the death of the guilty. To me, it would be like Texas electrocuting a murderer and a few innocents in the audience got zapped too - too bad, so sad - they were just associating with the wrong crowd.

    I disagree. In the case of Texas, the driver was attempting to evade arrest. Also, troopers did not shoot the illegals. They shot out the tires of the truck, and the truck crashed. The truck should have stopped when ordered to by law enforecement. IMHO, this was a good shoot by the cops.

    I don't dispute these facts - I was simply following up on the discussion yesterday where some on the left claimed that the Texas example was wrong because it ignored "due process" for those on the ground but didn't think due process should equally be given to those killed by drones, even when they are American citizens. My point was that it would be wrong in both cases if innocent lives are lost.

    I dont object due to due process, I just dont beleive there was enough of a threat from a speeding pickup truck that the LEOs in the helicopter should open fire. I do believe AlQueda leader ship poses that much of a threat. I do understand your argument though.
