Obama or Romney, and every future U.S. President elected in this evil system, will continue to wage drone warfare on people all over the planet, violating national sovereignty and human rights, and terrorizing people from the air.
Drone operators, remotely protected from physical harm (though some do suffer PTSD as a result of their killing), refer to their victims as "bug splats", and carry out a tactic know as the "double tap", by which they bomb a group of "suspects" according to Obama's latest "Kill List" or "Disposition Matrix", then, when others such as the victims' comrades, family and friends go to help the victims, our drones bomb the rescuers. Of course this is deeply immoral and savage, as well as a clear violation of international laws such as the Geneva Conventions. But it is now part of U.S. strategy to terrorize the people in areas the U.S. considers suspected of supporting "terrorists". As recent, independent studies have show, despite U.S. government propaganda, very high proportions of U.S. drone warfare victims are NOT "terrorists" at all, but innocent people, including women and children, going about their normal daily activities.
Arthur Silber is an essayist who writes powerfully about such matters of basic morality. Here are excerpts from one of his recent essays on the subject of Obama's "Kill List":
"The claim of a "right" to murder anyone for any reason is the greatest expression of evil we can imagine. Both Obama and Romney claim the President has such a right. Obama has actualized his belief on many occasions. Any individual who claims such a right cannot, by definition, represent a "lesser evil" of any kind. He claims as his own the greatest evil possible. Every other issue, no matter how important it may be in itself, no matter how passionately we may feel about it, is necessarily less significant.
