  • We have gotten to the point where "war" is whatever the politicians say it is. **** the Constitution and it's requirement for a declaration thereof.

    I ask also for the evidence that al-Awalaki had, in fact, taken up arms against the US. So far as I've been able to determine, he was known only to have spoken out against US foreign policy. He's not alone in that regard.

    Sorry, I'm with Ron Paul on this one.

  • I think we are all on that slippery slope and there is no single right course of action.

    Had we remained isolationists throughout all of the 1940's Hitler would have ordered even more people to be exterminated. If we let evil thrive we in absentia condone it.

    That said however we cannot and should not dictate that our ways are the only right ways and condemn all other forms of society in the world. If it works for a society, so be it. Same goes for religions.

    The difficult part is knowing which is which and what courses of action are truly legitimate.

    I think the US has stepped over that line more than once and by doing so other societies look upon us as the ones needing to change.

    While we have one of the best countries in the world, we must admit that we are far from perfect and can always benefit from looking at the ways others do things at times.

    While this alleged terrorist was dealt with as those who were not from our country tells the world that we treat domestic terrorists the same as foreign ones, what does it say about the way we treat all alleged terrorists? That answer doesn't paint the America we love with such a pretty brush from outside our borders.

    Have a good evening
