    I have no problem with our drone program. I'm glad we have it and would have no problem with it being expanded should the need arise. As to valuing American lives above all other I proudly do so and make no apologies.

    I have mixed feelings. I have to wonder why get involved at all? Let countries deal with their own situations and "IF" they ask for our help, give them the conditions up front as to how we will help and how they will repay AND exactly what the end results are going to be.

    Exactly. We rule the planet the world must submit to the USA. We don't need approval from anyone we make the rules if they don't like it they are terrorists.

    @PNWest Well put. 50 civilians killed for each bad guy summarily executed is acceptable. They have a Sandy Hook every day but we don't need to worry about it. The world will respect us out of fear.

    Why doesn't this "man of conscience" talk about the genocide being committed against white people in South Africa and Zimbabwe? Until he talks about that, his words mean nothing to me.

    Said it before, I'll say it again. When it comes to saving troops lives, I fully support their use.
    I do NOT and will not agree that usage domestically is a good idea.
    If we keep letting the Fed open more and more of Pandora's box the question isn't if, it becomes a question of when.
    And that is the day we go to war with our own country.

    @PoliticalSpice What weapon isn't? Do you think the Soviets withheld a nuclear apocalypse because they were trying to be nice? They feared our missiles as much as we feared theirs. Japan didn't hold back every bit of technology they had in their war against us, was it because the were deep down the good guys?
    What you said basically translates to, "Well, if they got em they will use em". No shit? We're talking about an enemy that flew planes into buildings as bombs. Damn right they will use them. And it doesn't hinge on our actions one way or another, that's just naive.
    The question is, how far will they reach?

    @PoliticalSpice You really think our current enemies could get one all the way to Oklahoma without us so much as noticing let alone dealing with it? Do you seriously not have that much faith in your countries military might?
    Say what you will about the Defense budget, I probably agree, but its money well spent. We have so much more stuff in our arsenal its not even funny.
    The closest you will see a drone of our enemies come is to an embassy somewhere. Whatcha wanna bet?

    @PoliticalSpice "Just remember that when a drone flies over oklahoma and takes out some second amendment types..."
    And as far as death goes? It doesn't have a political stance. Blood is red and pain is real. Its a very bi-partisan thing and I don't separate when it comes to Americans dying. I sincerely hope you don't either.

    Kind of disappointing to have to shoot you, except for occasional disagreements between us I never thought to take it that far...oh, I don't own a firearm, can you loan me yours?

    Except our country... we have no problem killing our own despite their rights defined in the constitution.

    I just read today that Capetown is listed as "critical" on the world's worst crime spots. While I in no way support apartheid, what has happened in South Africa since the blacks took over is a worse situation that before. That's unbelievable. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

    The citizenship of the target is immaterial - I don't trust ANY President to pursue an assassination policy without judicial oversight. If it turns out the program is illegal I won't be upset.

    100% agree. If we were actually at war with a country it would be one thing to take out military targets like this, but even then I'd want their leader captured and brought to court. If we treat our enemies no better than they would treat us, we are no better than them, and if we are no better than them, what are we doing fighting them?

    @dances-weebles obviously... 'spreading freedom'... biggest lie told to the American public in generations.

    Those drones will be the death of the U.S. We are aimimg them aimlessly it seems.
    We have too many weapons and too many itchy trigger fingers at the ready. DISASTER.

    Dear Mr Tutu, No in fact, the lives of people in other parts of the world are not as valuable to me as American lives. Sorry about your luck. Sincerely,.....

    Drone strikes are just another program started by Bush and expanded by Obama. The drone program has created much anti-American sentiment and was the reason given for the Benghazi attack.

    Yes he's right. Terrorists should be targeted if their threat puts us in a position where taking them out would be considered self defense. Then it could be said that they were the aggressors. But to use drones to kill people who are suspected but no proof or due process is needed..that leans a little too far towards being tyrannical. Our government doesn't need to demand that others have respect for human life if they aren't willing to do the same.

    next to nelson mandela and the dali lama mr, tutu is one of the most highly respected men in the world and a man of peace. yes, we should respect what he says.

    I don't know who this guy is, and don't particularly care, but he is right. We should not be killing US citizens w/out due process, I don't care who they are. Using drones to attack military strongholds in a time of war? Sure, go ahead, but declare war. Using drones to attack people that may or may not be 'plotting terrorism' w/out due process? I will never agree with that. It's no different than sending F16 fighter jets to blow people up. Part of the reason these people hate us so much is because of actions like this. Continuing them is only going to make more enemies.

    i don't believe that any military personnel should be allowed to kill anyone else unless they are actually standing in front of them and looking in their eyes.

    @dances-weebles Not w/out a declaration of war. An actual declaration, the last of which happened in 1945.

    @AceLuby here's another great idea. i think that if any nation wants to go to war with any other, then the political leader of said nation should lead the first change.

    There is no honor in war anymore when a video game geek can wipe out 2 dozen civilians at a time along with the bad guy.

    @dances-weebles The drones are just political tools. Soon the president will be able to fly the drones himself on his xbox in his living room.

    Spoken by someone who has a record of anti-Jewish sentiment. So what do I care about statements he makes from his yacht? Move along Tutu...
