And get this, and get it good — all these missile strikes that kill people are against “militant suspects.”
Got it? — “I suspect you are a militant, therefore I am going to kill you.”
There is no requirement to legally identify a suspected enemy of the United States before firing a missile at him. Whether people in the sights of drone cameras live or die is determined by a nimble-fingered mafia of robo-cowboys playing assassination video games. To use a cliche, they embody police, judge, jury and executioner in a court of no appeal.
Every time we slaughter innocents in foreign lands, that death becomes a recruiting card for anyone who would wish us ill.
The blatant hypocrisies and ham-fisted illogic in US foreign policy is enough to make me want to scream.
