We are talking (in this case) about the U.S killing U.S citizens.

I have no problem with using drones on foreign national enemy combatants but I absolutely draw the line on using them on US Citizens.

Is this a partisan issue or is it the NEOCONS from both sides standing up for this shit?

Please direct me to the Known Terrorist List, so I will know who not to hang out with.

yet y'all cheer on the Israelis when after Munich they sent teams to hunt down the terrorists. No proof or anything.




Better example: How many of these posters support the cops when they gun down people without bringing them to trial?

Are those people not Americans? Do you posters not say "Don't do criminal shit" or "don't act like a criminal and you won't get shot?"

Yet they are adamantly opposed to this. Why is that?



***I know not all who are opposed to this support the criminal acts of police.

ummm...the point is that someone should have to be able to:

1) PROVE you are "hanging out" with...

2) "known terrorists"




i have ZERO issue with throwing rapists into prison forever. But,the Sheriff doesn't get to just come grab my arse and SAY "bhp is a rapist" and away I go. there needs to be some proof...some oversight....some allegation and testing of evidence, etc

Here's an even better question: How many of those instances where cops gun down people occur when the officer's life is in extreme danger?

a problem with it. It clearly says americans in foreign countries, not in America. Don't go to an AL Quaida training camp or have coffee in a cafe with Mullah Omar and you have nothing to worry about from what i can tell. I am halfway through.


This country has absolutely gone to shite.

I'm glad everything is so black and white for you. That guy is a terrorist, this guy isn't. I guess they walk around with signs on their heads. You know one of the American's killed was a 16 year old on his way to a BBQ. He may have been a terrorist, I don't know, I didn't get to see the case laid out against him.

But you are right, I completely trust my government to tell me the truth and if this kid was a terrorist then I believe them. It's not like they have a vested interest in saying he is a terrorist once they already killed him.

Why the frick even have a Constitution if we aren't going to follow it? It's not their to pick and choose what we like and don't like.

FIFY



Seriously....do you not get the nuance in the positions? Those opposed are saying the Gov SHALL NOT deprive a CITIZEN of his life or property without DUE PROCESS OF LAW!!


I have ZERO problem with putting terrorists (including U.S. Citizens) through a wood-chipper (though I acknowledge this cannot happen for constitutional reasons)...But, the U.S. gov is bound by the U.S. Constitution, IMO/

And what mechanism is being implemented to determine that? And why can't they be tried for treason?

Show me where they have been proven guilty in a court of law, as guaranteed by the 6th Amendment...

TIA

shrug.

Again. I have zero problem taking these guys out before they take an innocent life out. You don't want to die at the hands of the US military. Don't be consorting in terrorist training grounds with bearded guys.

Pretty simple...it's a lot like I had zero sympathy during the rash of kidnappings of Americans and others in Lebanon back in the 80s. I was like..these guys are dumbasses for being in an area of the world where they hate us.

They're still working on that list, and buddy, you're mighty close to being on it. You best tone down that attitude.

So what if they aren't a "Known Terrorist" or "Accomplice of a Terrorist"?


What if its a lone American in Mexico who has said that they are going to kill someone. Its ok to take them out with a drone strike?
