... you said this and with what I presume is a totally straight face, don't see how the two are essentially the same thing.
That's the problem with idealists.
They are totally, totally incompotent in the face of a problem that demands a realistic solution Their minds aren't wired to concieve of rational- even 'more likely' - scenarios outside their own idealogical realm. It eventually arrives at the point where you wonder how they can function in life being so totally detached from reality, but I guess they can. It's also a totally amusing tendancy of authoritarian leftism to propose murderous actions when it's in service to some stupid ideal. "Save the baby seal, shoot the seal hunter" types.
Sorry, though. While I may have sociopathic tendancies and I think you know by now you won't get any shuickin' and jivin' out of me by squealing 'racist', my proposal results in LESS bodies than yours (excluding the Spiderman scenario, but I'm pretty sure you realized how dumb that was before you even hit 'post'. I can only assume it was purely rhetorical and not an actual suggestion.) and while I don't ****ing care if we fly sortie's of AC130 gunships to strafe the refugee camps, I can still acknowledge that my own situational-sociopathy in regards to people outside my own culture isn't nessacarily the best way to manage global policy. If you'll go back and read the post, you'll notice that I've been a champion of discretion.
I think your ideals on "drones" are just so visceral that you don't even understand what they are. They've just become another ringing bell to your pavlovian ideal system. They perform some tasks that were once left to carpet bombing.
LOL, sorry guys I am not biting. TimWakefield and you are pranking us right?
