I am anti-drone. I am not anti-Obama

He's wimpophobia like every Democrat since Kennedy. He doesn't want to come across as a dove or soft on terror. Even though Al Queda now only consists of a five year old and a blind guy with a pocketknife - our country is still in that state of fear.

I blame him, yes. He should know better. But it is no surprise why.

Seriously, the biggest threat to the USA right now is our Military Industrial Complex.

You don't go against them. If you do, you end up like a Kennedy. Not here to argue conspiracy theories, but the MIC wanted them (JFK and RFK) out. Whether or not they took them out is irrelevant - when they want you out they will remove you. Just ask Henry Agard Wallace who was dropped unceremoniously after advocating a peacetime America (again, none of this is conspiracy theory - this is all well documented in the annals of US History)

A president alone won't stop the MIC.

A congress and president won't stop the MIC.

There are only two things that can stop them: (1) complete insolvency by the US government and (2) complete insolvency of the MIC.

So what is it going to be?

1. Good point!

We can hate the policy without hating the person.

But I guess that would go for Bushinc too, which is difficult.

2. Wouldn't the use of drones be a threat to the MIC?

It seems to be more CIA territory rather than an overly bloated military's territory.

5. It should be somewhat telling that it is mostly Dems who are against

the unchecked use of drones to kill at will. The GOP is pleased as peaches with bombing the shit out of poor people....
