    In light of the current climate...

    this view might not exactly be agreeable to all.

    But take a look at this column by Ted Rall anyway....

    Every couple of days, our president orders drone attacks against innocent people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and, no doubt, other places we are unaware of.
    I'd really love to see a source for this one.

    it is a lot of power for the prez to wield and i believe he and the military should be able have that power. but there should be some sort of check on it. i think both obama and Bush used the drones way to much...

    its a power that needs to be regulated but i have no idea how...

    I still have a beef with Ted Rall for the way he trashed Pat Tillman.

    He knew nothing about the kid then accused him of wanting to kill stuff in Iraq like a big dumb animal even though Tillman enlisted shortly after 9/11 and was killed in Afghanistan by his own men.

    And for the record, Tillman hated most of the people in the military because he thought they were whiners.
