  •  So it's intent that matters (1+ / 0-)

    When US drones are striking weddings or funerals, or attacking rescuers who come to the site of a drone strike, the intent is not to terrorize, and thus, we are superior to the terrorists, even as we leave a trail of dead civilians in our wake, just like they do.

    I suppose this difference in intent allows us to sleep at night, while the people of northwest Pakistan no longer have this luxury at all? Can you imagine living in a place where your house might explode at any moment?
