Back to terrorism and drones, this happened yesterday, about 400 miles from where I used to livehttp://www.ndtv.com/article/south/hyderabad-blasts-at-least-12-killed-57-injured-333905?pfrom=home-lateststories
We don't use drones, we dont attack training camps in our neighbouring countries. All our forces are inside our borders (unless token units are on UN missions). Yet they decided its time for many innocents to die.
Quick check on Screwtape's list:
severely curtail the assassination-by-drone program -- N/A
pull all our troops out of iraq, afghanistan, etc. N/A
Stop trying to have puppet governements. In the long run, they hurt us. See Iran. N/A
stop trying to promote democracy. most people don't have it because they are not ready for it. heck, I hardly think the US is ready for it anymore. N/A
revoke corporate personhood N/A
cease torture - probably N/A
cease covert operations - N/A
try to reform the monolithic intelligence community to make them actual intelligence gathering entities Almost Impractical- too huge a spectrum
cease all financial and military support for Israel N/A
broker a fair resolution for the palestinians. N/A
de-garrison the planet. we have expensive military bases everywhere. Why? To "project power". That seems unnecessarily hostile to me. N/A
What I would say is that there are people out there who needs no reason to perpetrate an act of terror. This is the "enemy", he is real and he is filled with hatred. He will keep killing just because he can.
