Can The U.S Government Bomb Americans At Home?

Well you have probably heard by now that Hugo Chavez is dead…

However did you hear that Attorney General Eric Holder verified that Obama and himself believe that the federal government has a right to kill you with a drone? No? Well in a reply to Senator Rand Paul, Holder wrote…

 

As members of this administration have previously indicated, the US government has not carried out drone strikes in the United States and has no intention of doing so. As a policy matter moreover, we reject the use of military force where well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat. We have a long history of using the criminal justice system to incapacitate individuals located in our country who pose a threat to the United States and its interests abroad. Hundreds of individuals have been arrested and convicted of terrorism-related offenses in our federal courts.

The question you have posed is therefore entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no president will ever have to confront. It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States. For example, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances like a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001.

Emphasis is mine. So, what the fuck happened to Due Process? Oh yeah, that took a fatal round to the head after the NDAA went in effect. Obama claims he’s not a dictator but who else but a dictator can order your assassination whenever he desires? Wouldn’t be the first American he’s killed. Here’s a New York Time’s story about his kill list. I’ve covered drones in the following posts: A Nation Of Slaves, Look Up In The Sky! Its a bird! Its a plane! No! ITS BIG BROTHER!, and What Would You Do If America Was Another Country’s Battleground?

Still think you’re free? A boot on your throat decided by a majority is still a boot on your throat. Get your head out of the tv and wake up! If this country melts down I’m leaving you to your fates. The cancer of apathy will not claim me. Instead think of my words as chemotherapy. Don’t reject the treatment and go terminal!

All Life Is Precious, Not Just Americans Lives

Is the blood of an American innocent worth more than the blood of a Pakistani innocent? Or any other innocent?

People are sympathetic for the parents at Sandy Hook, which is a good thing, but do they realize how many innocent kids and adults have died overseas? Obama’s strategy of drone strikes has killed multiple innocents. The Guardian has an article here on it.

In America when this happens someone’s going to face the consequences. Why different there?

A favored technique is the Double Strike, bomb a place, wait till someone comes to help, bomb it again. How do you know they were guilty? Wouldn’t you see if there were and survivors if it happened here?

Or the bombing of funerals? Who cares, guilty by association, sucks to be you. Would you stand for that here?

We cry over the massacre of kids here, but not the slaughter of kids overseas by a kid in a room at a video game controller in New Mexico, ordered by our Nobel Peace Prize winning President. Twisted priorities.

Humanity knows no borders.

A Nation of Slaves?

Government these days is just one person trying to screw the other person and get a piece of the pie. The pie being control over a weak populace that demands to be taken care of. 

I wish people would realize that whoever takes care of you is your master, they own you. And the government knows this, it’s why they always offer “help” and new programs using money taken from the very people they “help”.

Why not let them keep their money and help themselves?

Oh, yeah. That would make them independent. And someone who’s independent can’t be controlled so the government has no sway over them.

Why do you think they have so many regulations to just start a business, which makes you self-sufficient.  Or bust you for drinking raw milk or growing your own garden? Because you meet your needs, and therefore don’t need help. So you must be punished, made an example of.

Why beg for help from a government willing to detain me indefinitely without a trial courtesy of the NDAA, assassinate me with a drone, like American citizens overseas in Yemen. No trial for them. Or spy on me without a warrant due to the “Patriot Act”. Trust my government to take care of me? No. Fuck the government. Fuck the Republicans, the Democrats. I’m voting for the one party that actually will recognize my sovereignty. The Libertarians.

Maybe if enough people woke up and got off their damn knees we can make a difference. There’s a reason I hold people like that in such disregard. The failed potential. I have no pity for them. Only those who try on their own get my respect.

What Would You Do If America Was Another Country’s Battleground?

Let’s look at a news story….
Ministry of Defense chief Holmes defends American drone strikes

June 6, 2012

UK Defense Secretary Sherwin Holmes has backed the use of drones to target militants in America, two days after a missile strike reportedly killed Irish Republican Army (IRA) leader Sean O’Malley.

Mr. Holmes said the UK had made it “very clear that we are going to continue to defend ourselves”.

He made the comments while attending a conference in neighboring Canada.

On Tuesday, America summoned the UK deputy ambassador to reiterate its “serious concern” about drone strikes.

There have been eight UK drone strikes in the past two weeks despite Washington’s demands for them to be stopped.

America says the drone attacks fuel anti-UK sentiment and claim civilian casualties along with militants. The UK insists the strikes are effective.

‘Our sovereignty’

UK officials say Sean O’Malley died when two missiles struck a suspected militant compound early on Monday in Oklahoma City, a city to the west of Broken Arrow, a town west of the Cherokee Nation tribal area.

At least 14 people are thought to have been killed alongside him.

The Parliament said O’Malley’s death dealt a heavy blow to the Irish Republican Army as he played a critical role in its planning of operations against the Crown, and had become second-in-command to  Boyle following Connery’s death.

“There is no-one who even comes close in terms of replacing the expertise the IRA has just lost,” one official said.

Speaking in Vancouver on Wednesday, Mr. Holmes made it clear that the UK would continue to use unmanned drone aircraft to kill militants in America, dismissing complaints that its sovereignty had been violated.

“We have made it very clear that we are going to continue to defend ourselves,” he said. “This is about our sovereignty as well.”

Mr. Holmes argued that IRA leaders who had orchestrated the June 21 2003 attacks were located in America’s state of Oklahoma.

He also said the drone strikes helped protect Americans, who have been the targets of attacks by the IRA and its allies.

The defense secretary also told the conference in Vancouver that the UK and Canada would need to “continue to engage America, overcoming our respective – and often deep – differences with America to make all of North America peaceful and prosperous”.

“America is a complicated relationship, complicated for both of our countries, but it is one that we must continue to work to improve.”

The UK is hoping Canada can provide additional support to Mexico, including trade, reconstruction and assistance for local security forces.

‘Red line’

On Tuesday, the American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the UK deputy ambassador, Lilly Allen, had been summoned to be officially informed of “the government’s serious concern regarding drone strikes”.

Ms. Allen was told the strikes were “unlawful, against international law and a violation of America’s sovereignty”, a statement said.

“The Congress had emphatically stated that they were unacceptable. Drone strikes represented a clear red line for America.”

Before the increase in drone strikes over the past two weeks, there had only been 11 such attacks in the preceding six months.

CNN’s Tricia Edwards says there has been a sense in Washington D.C that this increase in frequency of attacks is being seen as a means of putting pressure on – even punishing – the country at a time when it is refusing to re-open supply routes to NATO troops in Mexico unless certain demands are met.

If O’Malley’s death is confirmed, London may feel vindicated, but it will not appease a large section of American society, for whom UK drone attacks have become a source of considerable resentment, our correspondent adds.

Obviously this isn’t a true news story…or is it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-18343142
Just replace America with Pakistan, the UK with the US, Canada with India and Mexico with Afghanistan and a few names I pulled out of the air and you have a real news story.
  • Now after reading that, how would you feel if this was true?
  • So what makes American Sovereignty any different from Pakistan’s?
  • What would you do if the United Kingdom or some other country started blowing up civilians when they try to kill their enemies on our soil?
 What did thousands of Americans do after the 9/11 attacks? Joined the military.
See the double standard? For every civilian we kill, we piss off a little more a country with nuclear weapons, and the sons of families who lost loved ones to a drone strike with a raging pissed-off hard-on for America. It’s cyclical.
What do you think about it now? The constant wars, interventions, lives and money wasted, Anti-American sentiment?
