Was he supposed to give the terrorists a few days off just because he won re-election?

I think republicans are just angry we have a huge stockpile of aging nuclear weapons that we haven't used.

They would be much happier with these strikes if we destroyed whole cities with them.

I remember another president that did similar things; all of you guys say he should be tried as a war criminal; what makes this any different?

On a serious note; BOOM, headshot

Clearly the better solution would to have first enacted a blockade, then plant chemical weapons evidence, put together a coalition of the willing, then invade and spent ten years there, killing thousands of civilians and hundreds of our troops. Those defense contractor owners aren't going to put together next year's megayacht with only dreams and puppy dog farts.

Yes. George Bush waited almost a year before he attacked the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and some field in the middle of nowhere.

And we know they were terrorists because the goverment told us so.

This is a disturbing trend no matter how you think of it. I agree that drones are practical and that they often get legitimate targets that otherwise would have eluded capture but the idea of zero checks and balances kinda makes this Judge Dreddy.

We've been doing this for years. It's sneaky and underhanded, but involves loss of fewer of our personnel, and more dead persons of interest. If terrorists want to face a trial before they get executed, they'll have to join a formal state and declare war.

It reassures me that, like myself, you bastards are so un-central to our society that you have nothing better to do than this all day. Obama's gangsta foreign policy is disgusting to a moral mind. Many children have been killed by drones. Weddings and funerals have been attacked. First responders have been targeted in follow-up attacks. Reminds one of the IRA.

I think their premise is that he shouldn't be authorizing this sort of strike against them at any point in time.

You know, not all use of force by a government is terrorism. That's a loaded term.

Although I'm no fan of Obama, I applaud his use of our military technology to take these people out. I have to think that implanting the thought into terrorists around the world that they could be bombed at their exact location at any given time with no warning whatsoever has to be effective at some level.

Plus, it's a hell of a lot cheaper than an invasion.

Way to get some Mr. Prez!

I know you're just joking around there, but there do seem to be quite a few people ignorant (willfully or otherwise) of the fact that when "libs were biatching about Bush's war", it wasn't the war against al-Qaeda that they were referring to.

Sure I was. We've got an enemy we've got to deal with on foreign soil. We get them with a drone strike. Drone strike isn't popular. What's the most common alternative we've exercised in this situation? I'm way sure it wasn't giving them five dollar gift cards to Hot Topic.

I can't wait until the president unleashes this technology on DomesticTerrorists. The thought that tax cheats, speeders, preppers, gun hoarders will know they could be bombed at their exact location at any given time with no warning whatsoever has to be effective at some level.

GodDAMMIT! I am sick and tired of people biatching about "drones" (they're UAVs, not drones--drones are what you use for target practice). We go to all the trouble and expense to develop these things to schwack just the right people, and minimize collateral damage, and you STILL aren't happy about it. Hey, you know what's a lot farking cheaper than drones? Saturation bombing. Great big dumb bombs that make the huge booms are a hell of a lot cheaper than the little bitty precision guided missiles and UAVs. I say fark it, let's just go back to turning shiat into parking lots if we're not going to get any credit for trying to minimize casualties.

Also, don't like shiat getting blown up by UAVs in your country? How about you get rid of the terrorists? It's an amazingly simple solution. You do it, or we do it for you. Fark Yemen.

You must have been in a coma during Bush's presidency.

neenerist: An anti-war blog cites a Chinese source citing a local security official in Sanaa who reports three terrosists "were confirmed killed Wednesday night in a Yemeni-U.S. joint airstrike operation which targeted the militants' vehicle......The United States has escalated its drone strikes since Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi took office in February, as part of the anti-terror cooperation to help crush the resurgent militants who had taken advantage of Yemen's political upheaval last year."

Ben Ghazi!


Well, since it was authorized by the Yeman government, it can't be classified as a terrorist act. Had he done it without their authorization it would have been considered an act of war - like what we've been doing in Pakistan, but fark Pakistan.
