Reach out and touch somebody

Where is your god now?

Pakistani officials say a suspected U.S. drone has fired missiles into a tribal region in the country's northwest, killing at least five people.

Security officials and witnesses say the missiles struck a religious school Thursday in a North Waziristan village near the Afghan border, a stronghold of al-Qaida and Taliban militants.

Suspected U.S. drone aircraft have launched about 12 missile strikes against targets in North and South Waziristan in the past two months.

There was no immediate confirmation of the strike from U.S. officials.
In'shallah baby.

"Drone aircraft"--a perfect metaphor for your logic. Uninhabited, automated, unfeeling, deadly. Five people dead and you seem to cheer.

I am done for a while Neo. I hope you look over some of my comments and consider the logic of them vs holding the fort at all cost. Good luck with the wood cutting---I love that kind of work too.

"rob budde says... Five people dead and you seem to cheer."

that'd be five homicidal high value terrorist targets, my unfocused hippy friend... (they don't launch tens of thousands of dollars of ordnance on random targets).

see rob, we've got a bit of a situation here, where these guys aren't playing by any sort of civilised rules... ... (see the updated post).

that's why it's called "war" and not "circle of friends".

and hey, pal... i always acknowlege what you say... i just don't happen to agree with most of it.

later.
