The US has been unsuccessful with drone warfare so far, so why are we using these robotic aircrafts in Libya now? Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar calls America's announcement that we are using robot war to tackle Gaddafi as a desperate attempt to get out of the stalemate that they are currently faced with.

1. Someone must be making a lot of money from them.
That's what all our killing and torture policies are about, money. Same thing with Guantanamo Bay. Didn't Halliburton get the contract to build all those disgusting cages to keep human beings in?

However, if the American did not support any of this, they couldn't get away with it. But to their eternal shame, when the history of this era is written, it will show that the American people DID support the use of these horrific weapons, drones, and torture and all the other massive crimes against humanity, either out of fear or for political reasons.

History will not be kind to the American people. In fact, once you go outside the US, the consensus is that the American people are to be blamed because of either their silence, or their support for these medieval tactics.
