64. Hell no

 

My comfort does NOT enter into the equation. Legality went out the window a looooong time ago.

NO man can be responsible with that kind of power. Not even beginning to discuss the moral objections. Please remember, one of the first briefings a new American President gets is that he has his own private army, VERY well equipped, VERY responsive, VERY loyal, at his disposal. Congressional approval be damned (not that THAT would change anything).

One must consider at least 2 primary forces at work here:

1.The domino effect. All these actions precede the next level of acceptance of the horrors we (as a nation) inflict on the third world.

2.The paradigm of devoting our lifes forces, on technical, financial, emotional levels to these activities and policies.

We lost any moral high ground a while back. If we don't physically force change, I fear the path is quite clear.
