The Young Turks: How Drone Strikes Help AlQaeda

The drone strikes are killing civilians and causing anger and a thirst for vengeance. This has been quite obvious to anyone who has cared to pay attention.

We’ve been reporting on this for quite some time now, but with the recent reports on how the Obama administration fudge’s the facts about civilian deaths there is renewed discussion on the effectiveness of the drone attacks:

  1. i must have missed the reports where we killed some of bin laden’s, al-zawahri’s, atta’s families? so the young turk is in favor of smart prone strikes. does he think the strikes that have killed civilians where on purpose? so, obama ordered the operator to just kill anyone? seems how he is privy to presidential phone calls, does he have the transcipt where obama said, “just kill some muslim so it looks like we are doing something?” the operator said, “well i see 14 women and 21 kids.” obama says, “let the hellfire fly”?????? colatoral damage is always bad, but also always a fact of air power. sometimes we even kill our allies.

    i don’t remember any canadian terrorist arising from this incident?

    perhaps the locals should help us fight al-qaeda rather than joining them? how is it al-qaeda controls parts of nations? so the young turk is against us invading nations, against these strike, what would he have us do?????? al-qaeda in the arabian penninsula has tried twice now to bring down our civilian aircraft. what member of the underwear bomber’s family did we kill? this is a dirty war brought to our shores by al-qaeda. we will continue to take it to other’s shores, including the shoreless afghanistan.

    now if he is denying that any civilians have been killed, that is a huge mistake. we should be paying out blood money where appropriate, it is a well established practice in islam. that may win some favor from those who have lost loved ones and minimize radicalization.

  2. man i keep missing alot of news. when did we bomb nigeria?

    “Only in Nigeria do Muslims express positive views of al Qaeda; 49% have a favorable view and just 34% have an unfavorable view of bin Laden’s organization.”

    can’t copy and paste the tables. jordon is very supprising to me. though they where more westernized then the number say. go figure.

  3. young turk, would you consider this a smart drone strike?

  4. Mike,
    Ur problem is you don’t seem to understand who the Obama administration is targeting. They are bombing “suspected terrorist” on their “suspected terrorist list.” This means anyone can get killed without right of due process. Remember the “suspected weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq? Perhaps the local are sick of u killing them and their families. Maybe they think they can take revenge on those soilders who piss on their dead bodies. Consider Nigeria’s past with France, and then ur brain might grasp why ppl supported bin Laden. Did u know Tim Osman also worked for the CIA? Operation false flag ring a bell?

  5. mb,

    “Ur problem is you don’t seem to understand who the Obama administration is targeting. They are bombing “suspected terrorist” on their “suspected terrorist list.”” well yeah, who else would they be targeting?
    “This means anyone can get killed without right of due process.” yes, there is no due process in war. you crack me up. so you want the fbi to serve a warrant in yemen? the raid on bin ladens compound was a travisty of justice in your mind. they should have knocked on the door and read him his miranda rights.
    “Remember the “suspected weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq?” i do another glaring example of our intelligence community letting us down. much like pre 9/11 fbi. but what i don’t get is why saddam didn’t just let inspectors in?
    “Perhaps the local are sick of u killing them and their families.” i’m sure they are. but the way to end that is to drive the terrorist from your midsts. not to join them.
    “Maybe they think they can take revenge on those soilders who piss on their dead bodies.” maybe so. bad ideal on their part though. we kill terrorists. do they really think another 9/11 type attack will make us stop attacking terrorist. this makes no sense.
    “Consider Nigeria’s past with France, and then ur brain might grasp why ppl supported bin Laden.” has al-qaeda attacked france? terrorism is a bad strategy anyway you slice it. listen many countries in the world where under the yoke of colonialism. we don’t hate the british? ya’ll hold on to grudges way to long.
    “Did u know Tim Osman also worked for the CIA? Operation false flag ring a bell?” no. i’ll google, but can i read a wiki page or not? lol.

  6. ah, code name for osama bin laden. yes we supported the mujahideen. so? we should have let the soviets run roughshot over them?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_%E2%80%93_Osama_bin_Laden_controversy

    the question is, why after the soviets withdrew, the afghans began fighting amoungst themselves? especially considering they are all muslims, and followers of the religion of peace?

  7. mr bennet,

    more suspension of habeas corpus.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-18353329

    i don’t think you understand the suspension clause?

  8. Interesting link, Mike. Wonder if Omar Hammami was executed by his compadres? Viva la Revolucion, oh delusional one.

    CAIR actually defends al shabab recruitment here to disgust of some muslims.

Have your say!
