Eight people died when missiles hit a compound near Mir Ali, an al-Qaeda hub in Pakistan’s North Waziristan region. Seven more died when hours later two missiles hit a house in Wana, in South Waziristan. Local officials said the target in Wana was a guest house owned by a pro-Taleban tribesman. One said that as well as three children, the tribesman’s relatives were killed in the blast.
COMMENT: This same crime would have been committed by the person I voted for–which is why I felt so bloody guilty voting for McCain. But McCain would have not started funding abortions overseas. So the bottom line was that I thought McCain would be less of a monster than Obama. So far it looks like my guess was accurate.
That being said, I have to admit, even though I tried to prevent it, I find this situation more personally endurable. At least now the guy ordering murder by robot isn’t the same one claiming to care about “pro-life” issues. No, Obama is honest that it is all above his paygrade, whether newborns or Pakistani post-borns have a right to not be killed.
