That Seal Was Real

June 16, 2012 4:26 pm
"Dear Obama, when a U.S. drone missile kills a child in Yemen, the father will go to war with you, guaranteed. Nothing to do with Al Qaeda."

Yemeni lawyer warned on Twitter last month. Ibrahim Mothana for New York Times on the inefficiency of drone strikes: How Drones Help Al  Qaeda.

Unfortunately, liberal voices in the United States are largely ignoring, if not condoning, civilian deaths and extrajudicial killings in Yemen — including the assassination of three American citizens in September 2011, including a 16-year-old. During George W. Bush’s presidency, the rage would have been tremendous. But today there is little outcry, even though what is happening is in many ways an escalation of Mr. Bush’s policies.

It’s amazing how the US government and general public fails to realize one basic truth: Violence begets violence.
