    Yes, but what the supposition was about terrorists operating in the US or Canada. Ignored is that terrorists would not even be able to start the supposed operation. You have to be careful about how you arrive at equates unless you are doing it intentionally in order to influence those that can't think logically.

    Terrorists are only unable to operate effectively in the scenario (supposition) because of the intense cooperation between the US and Canada. Two countries operating effectively in concert produce good results, permit domestic intelligence agencies to operate with precision on the ground, and thus eliminate any need for drone activity. Pakistan could learn from this lesson. If they dislike drone activity over their country, then help us out for real, the way Canada would. Drone strikes could be eliminated and the Taliban et al, which has been a thorn in the side of Pakistan as well, could be rendered ineffectual if not destroyed to the benefit of both Pakistan and the US. With extensive cooperation from Pakistan terrorists could not operate in the first place, which is your point about the border between the US and Canada. A simple equation, really.

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
    No, it would not be okay with me for other countries to send their drones into the US and bomb it, even if there were terrorists. However, I have no issue with our government working with countries to deal with such threats just as they do with other wanted criminals.

    Where is the line drawn? Pakistan is supposedly fighting the terrorists, but then they are also accused of sheltering them.

    If we do not intend to seek "equivalency" and "equity" through government then why should such an institution exist? For power?

    When Osama is found living a life of luxury in a Pakistan neighborhood just down the street from a military installation I think Pakistan is obviously harboring terrorist.

    A clearly incompetent government (and perhaps some knew where he was), but still a sovereign state. We did not declare war on Pakistan, therefore we should not act within their country without permission.

    Pakistan has done little to help us resolve the problem of terrorists in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region. If Pakistan understands that we're after these guys and refuses to let us chase them into Pakistani territory, then the very least Pakistan could do is chase them out of the Pakistani border (most of them aren't even Pakistani nationals) and back into Afghanistan where we could sweep them up. Pakistan has refused to do even this tiny service after the Billions we've provided to them. Pakistan has practically gone out of their way to prove themselves an enemy of the US. So they can hardly be surprised when US ordnance falls inside their borders. Additionally, they should be happy that NONE of it has landed in regions heavily populated by Pakistani nationals.
