Drone strikes — billed by President Barack Obama as tactically surgical and less deadly to civilians than conventional air power — are 10 times more likely to cause innocent casualties than bombs or missiles unleashed from U.S. jets, according to a new study based on classified military documents.http://investigations.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/02/19254842-study-us-drone-strikes-more-likely-to-kill-civilians-than-us-jet-fire?lite
The Gadfly has some significant disagreements with President Obama on a variety of issues.
This issue is significant.
Blowing up a whole house full of women and children just to get one pissant jihadi asshole is fucking not an effective way to position your country as the moral arbiter of right and wrong in the world.
In fact - it makes you look like an uncaring, fucking unrepentant bully and tyrant.
Obama is being advised by some real stone-age fucking characters and they aren't doing their jobs solely in the interest of national security. The Gadfly doubts that Obama has any political courage or will to look those murderers in the eye and question their judgement. It's a conundrum.
Bottom line is - this country is run by sociopaths and it makes The Gadfly question the validity of this government (Democrat or Republican) and the people who are running it.
Think about it. They have already lied us in to two wars. They have lied to us about their domestic spying activities. They have lied to us. Liars. Liars. Liars.
Lying Liars. It's what they are.
'Nuff said . . .
