    Waterboarding is nothing compared to what those American haters would do to US. Example #1:

    That one would be Al Queda one man could not have done it or planned it alone, much like Obama did not kill OBL the seal team did with information acquired from Bush's captured terrorist. [ dead terrorist tell no tails]

    Waterboarding although cruel, the victim survives.
    Drone strikes kill the terrorist their neighbors and their hostages.

    Less than the 500 deaths per day of Iraqi citizens killed by Sadam Hussien.

    Less than the genocide of Saddam Hussein and war with a country is different that killng the hostages held by terrorist to kill the terrorist.

    The concept of “Total War” – war involving not just the military but all civilians irrespective of age or sex, together with the entire infrastructure of a country – became a horrible reality during the 20th century, driven for the most part by steering scientific discoveries and technological progress towards unlimited use in warfare.Total War is very much alive today and is being spearheaded by the United States and its Allies.

    This is being abetted on all fronts by US, European and global mainstream media that willingly oblige.In the case of Obama’s Total War Doctrine, the media go along with US official policy, and describe the murder of innocent people who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when American democracy-building drone bombs fall, as “militant combatants”.

    You see, Total War requires intense and constant psychological warfare to convince public opinion – both at home and abroad – that “our boys” fighting “to spread peace and democracy”, always do the “the right thing” by killing “the right people” who threaten America, Europe, Israel and the rest of the West; in other words, by only killing “militant terrorist combatants”.

    In war, there is always collateral damage. It's sad, but war isn't pretty and it isn't clean. They started it on 9/11 (and if you're a "truther" shut up before you start). I never thought Obama had the stones to go after bin Laden, but he has turned out to be a real "Chicken Hawk" --- but in kind of a good way when it's terrorists that are getting a chance on a daily basis to meet Allah. In this area he has actually almost been presidential, something he lacks in every other arena.

    Frankly I support drone attacks that killed people like Awlaki. I support waterboarding. I might change my mind about that support though if the prez gave me a sneak peek at his "Kill List".

    I was perfectly okay with Awlaki going up in a puff of smoke even though he was an American citizen. The same is true of Gadahn and I hope they get him soon. However, Awlaki and Gadahn have pretty much condemned themselves to death on the world stage with their actions.

    Having said that I can't stomach the idea of one person answerable to no one deciding to pull the trigger with zero accountability before or after the deed.

    UPDATE:

    Abu Yahya Al-Libi, considered a 'rock star' in the jihadist world, is killed in a US drone strike in Pakistan, as officials say it will be hard for Al Qaeda to replace one of its most experienced and versatile leaders.

    Excerpt from today's media. Just goes to show not all drone strikes are bad things. Al Libi was number 2 and still is number 2, (something he would wipe with his left hand), in my opinion.

    Ron Paul is the most American way to resolve things. War=Failure.... Obama has been at failure his whole term. He involved our military in 3 new failures besides Iraq. The Failure On Drugs is a major blight on the American way of life... Freedom.

    If Ron Paul is unelectable freedom isn't a value of this country any longer. It is such a shame the freedom experiment could end soon. Will we all be in chains no... but we will lose the ability to fight against govt and win. Not that this would matter to good people... until the rulers decide that your demographic is no longer a good thing and you now have no power to fight them. What if in 3 or 4 years they tax you for being fat.... and there is nothing you can do about it but lose weight..? They are in our bedroom, our bodies, our minds and coming soon our dinner plates. Have you heard the scuttlebutt about NY banning softdrinks over 16ozs to control fatties...? It's coming lady... just you wait.

    The wilds of Yemen are no place to be plopping our people in hoping for a live extraction. Not when the whole stinking fetid country isn't worth the life of one American soldier. I thoroughly detest Obama in nearly every way but I kind of like the idea of bad guys not being able to move about freely for fear that an unexpected "package" is about to show up.

    On a different note what intel could we have gotten from the man who's name rhymes with Obama? We'd already risked American lives plopping them into a country even more hostile than Yemen. I think Osama would have squealed like a stuck pig at the mere site of a pair of nail clippers. Probably would have rolled up Zawahiri and others too. Then you put a double tap in him and swear he tried to escape.

    No intel to be garnered here either. Although I would argue that it took SOME intel to accomplish this:

    SAND MONKEYS???? I think that qualifies like using the N word. Nasty and hateful. Where would you learn such low class stuff. The is a trend to dehuminize who you want to kill. The Nazi were Krauts. The Japanese were Nips and the Vietnam were called Gooks. Does it make it easy to kill people if you can convince yourself they are no human beings?
