    Paul et al are right (not right wing) about the cowardly, criminal and unconstitutional Drone war.

    Murdering people with remote control flying robots is as immoral a behavior as possible... whether it happens in Louisville of Waziristan.

      I do think, though, that some of the Republican obstructionists here are right for the wrong reasons.

      Which, I guess, is better than their usual practice of being wrong for the wrong reasons.

      Cowardly I don't give a shit about.  If somebody needs to be killed, I'm just as happy to have it happen with our troops 3000 miles away as face-to-face.  Because sometimes the other guy shoots back, ya know?  But criminal and unconstitutional - yeah, those matter.  When we decide as a country to go killing people, the Constitution tells us how to do it.  Congress declares war, in accordance with those international treaties on the matter which we have ratified, and then the President carries out the conduct of the war as commander in chief.  Letting the President just decide who to kill whenever and wherever he wants is insane.

      But it's not the most immoral behavior possible.  Or even the most immoral thing that we've done.  Torture, rendition, hell, the whole criminal invasion of Iraq and its hundreds of thousands of casualties and millions displaced.  And that's just in the current "war" on terror.  Internment, Tuskeegee, smallpox, slavery.  Or how about that we're STILL at war with North Korea.

        But some say back-shooting is worse than anything...
        Others say Kiddie Buggering Priests are the Slime.

        Whatever makes you sick.

        I become ill when I think about bankers & soldiers & priests & loggers &vulture capitalists & miners & authoritarians & royalty & slavery etc. etc..., not necessarily in that order
