    No JB he's saying what he honestly believes.

    Which to me is more frightening than if he were just making shit up to piss us off.

    I was really hoping he was just stirring shit.

    Otherwise, what he's saying is "If the US has top secret advanced weapons systems that give us a tactical and strategic advantage over everyone else, why can't they have that technology too"?

    It's thinking like that, that's going to get us all killed. Hopefully the guy never runs for congress. Who knows what he'd be willing to sell to our enemies.

    That's exactly what he is saying. And it's exactly what he believes too. It's the same thinking that allows places like the NY Times to release details on covert operations we are conducting against al-Qaeda and the Taliban and not lose a minutes sleep. They look at is as their patriotic duty to ensure we are not superior to anyone else in the name of fairness. And today that line of thinking starts at the very top and continues downward.

    And they'll do it all in the name of "fairness".

    Killing scores of people, including civilians, with inaccurate weapons, in nations that we are not at war with, from the comfort of a control room half a globe away, is not "superior".

    Drones are not accurate, they cause a lot of collateral damage, innocents are killed, and it's done in a way that is truly frightening. We aren't even at war with some of these countries, and we have a method of killing people that is similar to a video game.

    It is a terrifying concept. I also think nuclear weapons are terrifying, and the United States building and using them kick-started a paranoid half-century where everyone is panicked about being blown up. Once you open up these cans of worms, you take us into a new era. You cannot expect the US to be the only nation that has these technologies for long.

    We were attacked by, and continue to be threatened by, civilians. Most of us don't care what nation they are hiding in.
    The control room is comfortable. That seems to be an issue? Maybe we could make it less comfortable. Happy?:)

    The world will go on without you. There is nothing you can do. You don't count.

    It ended the war swiftly and saved American lives, but it also opened up a can of worms and entered us into an era of nuclear paranoia. It also killed hundreds of thousands of civilians.

    It may be too simplistic to label it as "good" or "bad". These things tend to have many consequences.

    Is the life of a soldier worth less than a civilian?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    According to Liberals it was. Never mind how many lives it saved on both sides and the years it cut off the length of the war.

    Somehow in the eyes of Liberals we have no moral authority to tell anyone what to do because we've nuked another country.

    You mean like the Taliban did to us on 9/11?
