    From what I understand, the attack on the embassy in Libya was in retribution for drone attacks.

    I've noticed some USMB posters calling Obama a murderer because of these drone attacks.

    You have to wonder what that label of murderer coming from Americans does to help stir up terrorists.

    Not as much as a drone attack killing innocent civilians and wiping out families because some 20 year old kid, sitting behind a joy-stick in Nevada, with this juvenille Top Gun attitude, called in an air-strike, because he confirmed there were no children seen in 3 SUV's traveling on this road in Afghanistan. The fact that he deliberately sent confusing messages to commander's in the area and the helicopter crews that fired the hellfire missles, by actually seeing children from his drone, but referring to them as "adolescents". If they were children, no attack. If they were adolescents, they could be of jihadist age, so attack is authorized.

    How would you like to live in a country where there was a chance you might get hit by a missle on your way to the liquour store, from some foreign military illegally in your country?

    drone attacks should not be used unless the target is very specific

    The targets are always specific, like the wedding party we hit that killed 33 Afghan's.

    Valerie, what are you trying to say, exactly? I realize that these attacks appear to be terrorists and that the Libyan government has nothing to do with them.
