we won't stop technology, they will do this behind our backs if not in front of our face. I would like police to use them for car chases and suchJay Shrewsbury

Are you really doing a comparison between those wars and this?
Let me ask you something......Are we at an official war against Pakistan and Yemen?......No.
What gives us the right to go into their countries and do this?
The U.S is nothing more than hypocritical bullies who cry foul all the time against countries such as Iran, North Korea, etc. but they are allowed to do whatever they please under the disguise of protecting their citizens.
Again....is Canada participating in these aggressions?
Is Europe doing something?
Why can't we protect our homeland right here?
Are we that incompetent?

Canada and Europe do not have to engage in such activities because the US is there to do it (as I am told on a regular basis by other posters). If we had a military budget as large as that of the States and had drones of our own I would fully support using them in ways necessary to achieve the military goals of my country.

Pretty much a country goes berserk over 3,000 deaths and starts to fight wars against anyone it deems "dangerous".....meanwhile the world watches as they torture people, violate countless laws, and do as they please.
Of course no one dares to actually stand up to this bully because they have so much power and they don't want to be the next country that is deemed "dangerous".
9/11 was one of the worst days in this country's history, but the bigger tragedy is the way the U.S has handled all of this mess in the decade that followed it."The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness..."

But at the same time that was a strategic operation which was done very carefully and executed correctly.
If for example they used a drone to kill OBL and at the same time they kill a bunch of other innocent people, including kids, then I would've questioned the strategy.
Here we have a country that has so many problems at home (financially) but we also take it upon ourselves to be the "World Police".
I'm sorry to say this, but when it comes to the country I live, I want to be SELFISH and say that we SHOULD NOT have to protect anyone except our citizens here at home....not the world.
All the money that is absorbed into the military could be used to have better infrastructure, better education, better social programs, more help where it really matters....the people of the United States."The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness..."
