In recent weeks, more than 50,000 Americans have signed a petition to Ban Weaponized Drones from the World. The petition says that "weaponized drones are no more acceptable than land mines, cluster bombs or chemical weapons." It calls for President Obama "to abandon the use of weaponized drones, and to abandon his 'kill list' program regardless of the technology employed."
Count on lofty rhetoric from the Inaugural podium. The spirit of Dr. King will be elsewhere.
