These false equivalency posts (Drones vs. Boston attack) are ridiculous

The irony is, its easier for terrorists to target only troops (combatants) of a nation state if that is what they wanted to do since nation states conveniently have bases full of them where there are few civilians. Some folks are only too happy to point out how many bases the US has all over the globe and yet miss how this is the finishing touch on any equivalency between a drone strike and a terrorist attack like Boston.

Despite all of these bases full of US service-people (and no, I don't want them attacked either), still the terrorists target civilians. Conversely, its hard for a nation state to surgically attack only terrorists since they (whether it is their intent or not) use civilians as human shields.

This being the case, I would argue it's much worse that terrorists kill civilians than for a nation state to have collateral civilian deaths in a drone raid.

xpost from LBN: Ex-Credit Suisse Executive Pleads Guilty to Inflating Value of Mortgage Bonds

Source: New York Times

A former senior trader at Credit Suisse Group pleaded guilty on Friday to charges that he fraudulently inflated the value of mortgage bonds as the housing market collapsed, becoming one of the highest-ranking Wall Street executives to admit to crimes related to the 2008 financial crisis.

Kareem Serageldin, the former Credit Suisse trader, admitted to mismarking their positions to avoid losses in their investment portfolio at the end of 2007. He appeared in Federal District Court in Manhattan a week after being extradited from Britain.

During the court hearing, Mr. Serageldin, 39, said that after discovering that members of his team were fudging the value of its bond portfolio, he made the fateful decision to participate in the fraud rather than put an end to it.

Looks like we have at least one investment banker going to jail for the fraud that led to the financial crisis.
