    No smoking at the border. Second hand smoke kills illegal immigrants.

Shooting unarmed guys in the back of a pick up truck is just poor form. There is a bit of a difference.
    Really? A big difference? How do you know the guys illegally entering your country in the back of a pickup truck aren't members of Al Quida? The difference, from my perspective, is that the drone attacks are happening in countries most Americans couldn't find on a map and are killing people most Americans identify as dangerous and not like them, even though some of them are actually American citizens. Bring the drone attacks closer to home and all hell would break loose.

    Where there is no difference is in shooting indescriminately from the sky from a drone or from a helicopter - to suggest otherwise, is dishonest.

    Also, in case you'd like to see a documentary instead of a fictional narrative based on truths, speaking of the brutal conditions illegal immigrants must face just to become an illegal immigrant, I recommend you watch the following video of a man who actually decided to weather it all with 4 immigrants making the crossing:
    Watch Mojados, the Mexican Documentary by Tommy Davis
    And what does any of that matter here? You have it terribly bad in your own country so it's okay to break into another's country? We already have our own hard luck stories and folks born to poverty to deal with.

    I think it's pushing sarcasm beyond where it should go. Would that type of "sarcasm" be tolerated if jews or americans were the target?

    So as a civilian in a helicopter, how would you know?
