basedgodtrilla: politically-enlightened: evilteabagger: Here’s the final product. A woman literally took it, read it a little bit, came back ripped it up and shoved down my hoodie. First, Anwar al-Alawki was a dual citizen of Yemen and America. Get your facts straight. Two, he was a terrorist. We kind of say “Screw you!” to your rights when you are a terrorist. Second, we are NOT involved in more wars. WE have had presences in more than just Iraq and Iran for YEARS. Learn the definition of war before you claim we are war in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Somalia. Third, no one cares about drone strikes. They work. And guess what? Americans don’t die when a plane does the killing. Fourth, most people COMPLAINED that Bush didn’t deport enough! Now people are complaining Obama is deporting too many. Pick one. Fifth, secrets should remain secret. There are some things that will NEVER be released, Freedom of Information Act or not. Sixth, ALL OF THESE THINGS (concerning detaining enemies) HAVE HAPPENED FOR YEARS!!!! This is what needs to happen. If by torturing one human being, you save THOUSANDS of lives, It is worth every second. And yes, I’M A LIBERAL. Literally the worst defense of Obama, EVER. al-Alawki never committed an act of violence in his life. He spread propaganda, which is entirely different. And killing his US born 16 year old son too- a horrible mistake that should not have happened. Murdering another individual and saying “screw you” isn’t just, by any means. Of course we’re involved in more nations than before. Tensions with Syria have never been higher. Just recently an aerial blockade was placed over Syria by the Obama administration. Sanctions, technically an act of war, have been placed on Iran as well. Also- lots of people care about drone strikes? Especially the families of civilians that get killed by drone strikes? Yeah, deporting people is bad, and you shouldn’t support your president doing it so much. Nearly 3000 children have been placed into social services after their parents was deported. You shouldn’t support that at all, especially as a “LIBERAL” Also- secrets involving the government killing civilians, or targeting US citizens, or committing crimes should NOT BE KEPT SECRET YOU GIANT FUCKING DOLT. The government is SUPPOSED to serve the people, and as the recipients of that service, we have the right to know what the government is doing. Finally- just because it happens for years doesn’t make it okay. I’m pretty sure Mao Zedong killed people in his nation for decades before it stopped. It doesn’t make it okay. And torture has been proven- repeatedly- to be ineffective, since nearly all victims of torture say ANYTHING to make it stop. That should easily quash your dumb utilitarian logic. And jesus as a LIBERAL you should be staunchly anti-war, and against MOST of the things mentioned above. You’re just condoning it which is so sad. I would say tensions being higher with Syria could be said by just about any country in the world. That is not Obama’s fault. If you want to blame anyone for what’s going on with Syria, blame al-Assad. He’s the one ordering the deaths of entire segments of his own country’s population. If you want to be pissed off at anyone right now, get pissed off at him. Also, people shouldn’t be putting so much blame on Obama for deportation. Obama’s administration may be responsible for large numbers of people being deported, but they are also responsible for fighting unjust and racist laws against immigrants. In my own state, they’ve been fighting one of the most egregious breeches of civil rights for immigrants and citizens.
