Send in the Drones
Over at HuffingtonPost, today, they had a story about the tragic death of innocent people, especially children, from our drone attack. It pissed me off to no end. I left a comment but I got no replies, responses, likes or faves. So, here goes…
3,000+ Americans have been targeted, all of them as -- if not more -- innocent as any bystander in Afghanistan or Pakistan. And here is the key, essential, way more important point: innocent Americans were all targeted ON PURPOSE!!! The intent was to attack and kill as many innocent Americans as possible.
OK, the 125 at the Pentagon may have been quasi-military targets, but they were more bureaucrats than solders, and although there’s many a Tea Bagger that would say they were doing us a service taking out federal bureaucrats, still there was noting “collateral” about it. The innocent bystanders were the targets.
That is the enemy.
I left a question. 3,000+ not enough? How many more Americans have to be targeted or killed before you will say send in the drones? Give us a number. Or, do we have to pass the number before you say enough is enough?
As the atomic bomb is to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, so to killer drones are to 9/11. It’s the new war. Don’t North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the ones around him realize that if they start something, they will be targeted? If they start something, they will not live long enough to know how it will end.
I realize that life in American may change when the drones come home to roost. They’ll be looking over my shoulder or that of the police. Who knows how they will be used, but used they will be. It’s the new “new.”
But back to our current unpleasantness.
What if they take some innocent kid and promise him 40 virgins in heaven if he will strap Iranian highly enriched nuclear material to his body and detonate it in an American city and kill millions of innocents – ON PURPOSE – would you send in the drones then?
