News Media Left and Right have gone bonkers over:
The Obama Administration's "kill Memo."
It authorizes killing enemies in this bogus war, something we have had in every war.
Obama did not start these stupid, fraudulent and larcenous "Wars on Terror!" He inherited them from Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Fossil Fuel, and he is trying to get out of them as fast as the Military Industrial Complex will let him, as safely as possible.
Nor did Obama start the use of drones! He inherited them, too! The whole thing is a fucking mess that has wasted untold millions of lives and trillions of dollars!!!
Whatever the anti-Obama hype may be (or dreamt up), the whole purpose of drones is to save lives and money, not waste them! Drones replace the human conflict that always results in greater human causalities. That they are being used to kill as well as gather info is a natural military aberration that can't be helped because that's what the military does; but drones still save lives and money, through smallness, precision and zero human to human conflict.
That drones sometimes can cause collateral damage is why we should not rush (9-11 HYSTERIA) into war in the first place, but as I said before, Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld BUSTED THAT CHERRY ~ and conducted a BIG $$ TRAIN GANG BANG ~ a long time ago!!
There is no Bush and Obama warmongering parity here. No hypocrisy! But there is a robust and prolific RepubliCon strategy of casting false equivalencies ~ "Both Parties are the Same" smear campaign! And, apparently, substantial confusion.
Imagine if we are struck again by another act of terrorism. Will you bitch about using drones to surgically find and strike the perpetrators instead of mounting a full-scale invasion and multi-year occupation?? LET'S HOPE NOT!! But while we are still in this Con lemon of a mess, we might as well make lemonade and perfect a better way to fight terrorism. Meanwhile, let's take the ammo away (not give more) from the terrorists abroad and at home... PLEASE!!!
The Obama Administration has not gone on a criminal murder spree, YET!! (I wish he would on certain Cons in Congress)!
SO GET FUCKING REAL PEOPLE!!
