    causality here? As far as most of the world is concerned Obama is just another aggressor like Bush. It is not only that we are rich (or that our masters are rich, more appropriately). It is that we exploit resources and deny access to these resources to other countries. We have supported corrupt dictators with American military force while these dictators stole from the people. I/P is a huge issue that places the US in the position of being blames by just about every country in the world holding us responsible for what Israel does. Basic issues like access to water, the ability to trade, the ability to access International courts are limited by the US.

    Drones are not working. Carpet bombing did not help in Vietnam. The Blitz did not work for the Germans. And allied air attacks on Germany did not end the war or even reduce military armament production. Drones unify our enemies against us. Something that may be a smart tactical move maybe a very bad strategic move.
