  • The mere fact that the government is bombing and killing people that they have decided are terrorist without any oversight is very chilling. Bombing in Yemen and Pakistan without declarations of war isnt much better.

  • You are welcome. I had the same reaction. And I have no problem whatsoever with the use of drones in wartime to kill the enemy, and I am not "pro-terrorist" by any stretch. On the other hand, the government makes lots of mistakes and we usually do not resort to killing citizens unless they have had a trial, been convicted of a capital offense, and have exhausted their (usually mandatory) appeals.
