And these bombs have also destroyed hospitals, schools and market places and such criminal activities are considered war crimes. One can't help but feel that Obama has lost control of the U.S. Military and the CIA!
Take a deep breath. Inhale. Exhale.
CIA "killer drones" don't strike hospitals, schools, and market places. The vast majority of drone strikes are conducted after following someone for days. There have been mistakes, but those are the exception and not the norm.
Syrian forces target market places; Boko Haram targets schools; and ISIS targets everything. I understand you don't like our military, but I encourage you to try to deal with facts and not conjecture.
Jared, wake up; Connie is correct. First of all the CIA nor Pentagon releases data on who or what they hit with the drones or planes, with the exception if they "score" on the killing of a "leader". So of course you as an patriotic flag waving indoctrinated person will say of course they don't do that Just point your fingers to what "others" do. First start exploring why "others" do these things. Why did 9/11 happen? Because they love us?
No Jared, we are no "holy" nation who bribes leaders all over the place while their people starve. This is what happens when our failed foreign policies over years and years bite us in the butt. Just start counting how many wars we were involved in since WWII (and lost), as well how many dictators we made rich or removed. Sorry this country creates only more and more enemy's every day by our actions worldwide. All our "rebuilding" of nations to our "model" failed.
Just as an example which no one wants to hear here: Since 9/11 we've only created more and more terrorists and frictions in the world than ever before; our revenge has cost double of the 9/11 victims in soldiers as well hundreds of thousands civilians in countries who never did us harm; let alone the cost of trillions to carry out this revenge on people who had nothing at all something to do with 9/11. We are continuing this way without learning from our mistakes. For every drone killing we get multiple enemy's back. Congratulations America, you created this mess and don't want to change; thus the results will bite us forever. We never learned from Vietnam/Korea, let alone from all the wars we are having right now, using the same stupid policies.
People who have food, education, an job as well a decent roof above their heads, don't start terrorists activities, provided fanatic religious idiots are not pushing such via indoctrination/education/media as well our "meddling" all over the world.
