"U.S. and Pakistani officials support drone attacks because they don't see a good alternative to combat al-Qaeda's operations in the tribal areas. I don't disagree with that view. But this policy needs a clearer foundation in law and public understanding than it has today. Otherwise, when the pendulum swings, the CIA officers who ran these supposedly clandestine missions may be left holding the bag.
So ask yourself: If you don't like the CIA tactics that led to the capture and interrogation of al-Qaeda operatives, do you think it's better to vaporize the militants from 10,000 feet? And if this bothers you, what's the alternative? "
Our default is killing terrorists by drone attack, Do you care?
The Washington Post, Dec.2
Joe, the Morning Moron Scarborough is ecstatic with the article by Mr. Ignatius. Yes, Joe is all for our brave CIA folks who "risk their lives kicking the doors' and then have to do all that dirty job of "interrogation by some sleep deprivation', and the- the ungrateful public (which one, I so far hadn't heard of any?- MS) calls them criminals and denies them the divine right to have unlimited sex in Thailand. Oh, yes, drones seem to be the public dears as well as the ones of the current administration ( Obama certainly lost my vote because of that- MS) and the public (which one again?- MS) does not care. Mr. Ignatius asks for the alternative. How touchy.
You know, folks, I don't know about you but I am sick of the shills who write and talk for big money and pretend to be oblivious of everything. According to both Ignatius and Morning Moron the US public is somehow unique and all previous history of mankind does not apply here. We have to discuss questions which had been asked and answered once again. But we know better. Here's a polite answer to both those folks:
Both torture and drone killings are crimes against Humanity. War on terror is a sham. Al- Qaeda does not exist and as such those actions above are not even war crimes. They are just crimes, tortures and murders. We, the people here will call them as they are because we know what can await us if we don't. If we don't the machine of murder and torture will turn on us. It is already turning on us. If not us, our children will be tortured or murdered en masse. You, David and Joe might be tortured, your kids or your family. It is the self- evident truth, it happened always in history; there's nothing new. And that's why we call those things what they are and call the perpetrators criminals and murderers. Everyone who willingly or unwillingly supports any of these endeavors is either a criminal or a damned fool, which is practically the same.
Now, about the alternative. The alternative is the rejection of lies. The alternative is careful and honest investigation of the policies and methodologies of our government and our institutions. It means criminal investigations of the terror incidents on method, motive and opportunity. It means finding those who benefit. It means prosecution of the corrupt elite of the several governments which uses the terror for its own malicious purposes. It means stopping the murders we commit first and foremost. In short, the alternative is only one-put honest people in charge.
And here's a very blunt, rather rude answer to Mr. Ignatius, Morning Moron and all morons in our media:
You, stupid morons want to take us for fools and accomplices for the atrocity. You know very well who you are and what's going on. So, chew your turds in your mouths without us. You better be afraid of the judgment day because it will come and you will feel the wrath.
Mr. Ignatius, if you have at least some remnants of being human, take the money you have been paid for the article and donate it to OEN. You don't deserve a penny for that sh*t and you know it.
Eat your checkers.
