    "If" the drone strikes are taking out enemies then I find no fault with Obama. I question the idea that Obama is killing innocent people. Sorry, doesn't add up. The fact that terrorists will respond to the killing of their own people who are enemies is not surprising and in no way shows what Obama is doing to be in error.

    Yea it will happen since the enemy hides in and among non combatants. Here is an idea....they non combatants shouldn't let them do that. Gee what a novel idea.

    No one is doing it on purpose when it does happen. Of course if one is completely a non interventionist first then trying to make hey out of every thing is common place. You still did not answer my question.

    Yes I did.

    Doesn't matter if it's done on purpose or not. Dead innocents are still dead innocents. Adding more dead innocent bodies to the pile isn't reducing the number of combatants it's increasing it.

    Only if the so called "innocents" are not sympathetic to them. And they are otherwise they would not let them be around them.

    And no you did not answer my question. Still waiting

    You don't know who's sympathetic and who's not. You're speculating. I thought you were against speculation.

    I'm no general but even I know you don't win a war by increasing the number of your enemies.

    And yes I did answer your question. I just didn't answer it the way you think I should have answered it.

    Sure we do. If they are able to live in and among them then they are sympathetic. This is common place.

    As I figured, can't answer it.

    That reasoning sounds an awful like "all Muslims are terrorists" to me. Aren't you one of those that have been saying this reasoning is wrong?

    As I figured, you won't accept my answer.

    Have you ever feared for your family's safety?

    By moving out of the battle zone? By getting a gun? By telling terrorists to leave you're family alone?

    I figured you wouldn't answer this question . . . . Aren't you one of those that have been saying this reasoning is wrong?
