I don't care what catastrophic reason he has for it, that's uncalled for.

Remember just a few months ago how the Supreme Court ruled that Obama can't do that after the filibuster? Yeah, what happened to that? Oh its only for terrorists? Define terrorist? This is really scary pit, and it was UNTHINKABLE that it could have happened even 5 years ago. A tyrannical govt is sounding more and more possible. I'm not saying its a tyrannical govt as of right now, but its getting closer to that point. Obama can actually just blast people using drones on US soil, if they are "terrorists", just think about that for a moment before you post. Think how big of a deal this is, and think how easily it could be abused if the ones in charge wanted it to. Nothing should ever justify this.

Discuss.

Also, there was an article about this a few months ago, but back then it said that Obama could use drones on US citizens OUTSIDE US soil. Now it's ON US soil. Big difference.

It's not "Obama can launch drone strikes," but rather, "Obama can approve drone strikes.

And wtf is this in the article:
The administration claims it has the legal authority to assassinate Americans provided that they are a senior al-Qaeda operative posing an imminent threat and it would be "infeasible" to capture them.



Also, US gov. has been screwed for years. Like, since the 2nd industrial revolution. The idea that you can have a group that facilitates the right of individual choice is a fallacy in itself.

Obama has no power to do anything. Hes just the spokesperson for the government. And yeah this is scary. but so what? Since you were born any country could attack you at any point with any bomb they had and for no reason. How is this any different? Unless you are some fool who thought the government cared about us and they where perfect little angels

I think it's pretty obvious really. Living in America is supposed to be a protection against that, as any country that did so would be starting a war or a world war. Since America has the most military clout, however, that changes when they have the ability to issue strikes against their own population.

He should target helicockter pilots.
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

Yeah, so?

If he's going to launch a drone strike against a US citizen, he's bound to have a decent reason . It's not like he's bored one sunday, and just decides to wipe out a primary school.

If I was bored one Sunday that's just what I'd do...

I'd probably do it three or four times just to keep my high score once I invented a game involving drone bombings and primary schools.

Or I'd watch tv.
ayy lmao

The USA is the land of the free. Yet we in our socialist countries don't need to worry about getting droned by our government. I really don't understand what's wrong with the higher court in the USA, in Europe this would never get through.

It's fine, you can just shoot them out of the sky with your handguns. That's why you need them, right? To protect against the government.
