    Imagine of a terrorist group was openly rebelling in North Dakota, and Canada had already been fighting this group in Manitoba. Would you ask Canada for help to asplode these terrorists. That's basically the best analogy to Pakistan, without putting in too much effort.

    So your postulating that the US Feds and local law enforcement were not powerful enough to to deal with the terrorist group; and, that the terrorist group had infiltrated our national and local governments. Yup, that would make us like Pakistan. So, YES!, I'd ask for help. I like your analogy, it makes thinking about this subject easier.

    He could be postulating that the US Feds and local law enforcement don't give a rats ass what happens in Canada and that the terrorists were not violating any of America's laws.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    There are so many agreements that the US and Canada have between them and us that even planing atacks in the US is illegal. Many counrtries have these agrrments. So you're thinking that he is thinking that the US Feds and local law enforcement don't give a rats ass what happens in Canada and that the terrorists were not violating any of America's laws. Gosh, don't know what to say. Maybe he'll clarify.

    OK. So you’re saying that the terrorists based in the US, those doing the bombing and killing people in Canada but principaly based in the US. And we, the US, couldn't handle it or a significant number of us didn't want to. Then I would want Canada to bom the terrorists here in the US. Don't you agree?

    Except we wouldn't leave Canada hanging out on a limb like that, and we'd round up Canada's bad guys for them, which Pakistan would never to for us even if it saved Pakistani lives.

    Pakistan is a strange ally, but an ally nonetheless. Therefore, it is okay for us to send drones into their country just as it would be okay for us to do so if Pakistan were to be invaded by Russia.

    Hmm. I don't think I can agree that Pakistan is an ally. They claim to agree to work with us, but fail to do it when the time comes. If Canada were the country in question, there simply wouldn't be a need to send in drones. If some extraordinary thing happened and Canada needed help to get "our" bad guys (too much empty/rough terrain to cover?) they would, not only agree to US drone flights over Canada, they would probably request them. THAT is how an ally behaves. So in my book, Pakistan is not an ally.

I decided to come up with this poll question because I have been thinking for awhile about how our government sends drones into Pakistan to kill people that if I was the citizens of that country the Pakistani politicians who gave the okay for such a thing would be getting lynched and publicly executed for allowing such a breach of sovereignty for the civilian causalities those drone strike sometimes cause.


    Should it be okay for other nations to send drones into your country to kill and or spy on people?

    Yes
    No
    I do not know
    Good to see a conservative and vet who understands the Golden Rule and why it pisses so many people off when we don't follow it as a nation.
