36. Okay, then you can stop going on about the "illegality" of drone strikes

...and concentrate on the immorality of it.

That's fine.

But with all your talk about legislatures, and trials and judicial authority... I had the impression you had something to say about legality.

So, okay:

Guy elected by people to limited term decides to kill someone = illegal

Guy appointed to life term and subject to no election decides to kill someone = legal

That is your distinction between "extrajudicial" killing and "judicial" killing.

Frankly, I don't even support the death penalty, so this distinction doesn't mean much to me on a moral level.
