I think we need to question not only our drone policy but our overall policy of going to other countries and KILLING people.
What can we really hope to gain by constantly having our military in somebody else’s country, blowing stuff up and killing people? The idea that this in ANY way makes us SAFER is ludicrous. If someone blows up your brother, sister, mother, father, cousin, child, village, pet dog etc do YOU like them? Do you want them to be safe? Or do you develop an almost obsessive desire to cause them harm?
We are gambling on everyone in these countries being Buddha or Jesus, but the odds are they are not feeling the love for us when we murder the people they care about.
