Killer Drones

At times she can be the apex of care and concern - other times she's as cruel as a cat tormenting baby rabbits before making the kill.

Duality of hoes perhaps.

Not unlike the magazine (an ancient slick paper ammunition holding device found in Dr's offices and supermarket check outs) that effed over Mc4, nom de penned "Rolling Stone"

If one needs to find out how the bigger than baby X cats made their Rickenbackers and Casinos all backwards on the "Relover" CD, or how Kid Rock overcame strippers, coke, weed and whiskey to focus on crafting more tunes - Rolling Stone is the mag for ye no doubt.

Yet getting all pushyfied about Drones Gone Wild reflects some serious discombobulation.
The use of drones is rapidly transforming the way we go to war. On the battlefield, a squad leader can receive real-time data from a drone that enables him to view the landscape for miles in every direction, dramatically expanding the capabilities of what would normally have been a small and isolated unit. 
"It's democratized information on the battlefield," says Daniel Goure, a national security expert who served in the Defense Department during both 41 and 43"s administrations. "It's like a reconnaissance version of Twitter." 
Drones have also radically altered the CIA, turning a civilian intelligence-gathering agency into a full-fledged paramilitary operation – one that routinely racks up nearly as many scalps as any branch of the military.
Pretty sweet, right? Hold up - here comes the suck part - 
But the implications of drones go far beyond a single combat unit or civilian agency. On a broader scale, the remote-control nature of unmanned missions enables politicians to wage war while claiming we're not at war – as Great Satan is currently doing in Pakistan. What's more, the Pentagon and the CIA can now launch military strikes or order assassinations without putting a single boot on the ground – and without worrying about a public backlash over American soldiers coming home in body bags. 
The immediacy and secrecy of drones make it easier than ever for leaders to unleash America's military might – and harder than ever to evaluate the consequences of such clandestine attacks.
And exactly how is that a prob, pray tell? Oh, yeah - the LOL meme that Ex and Colonel K whipped out eons past 
''Are we creating more terrorists than we're killing? Are we fostering militarism and extremism in the very places we're trying to attack it?' A great deal about the drone strikes is still shrouded in secrecy. It's very difficult to evaluate from the outside how serious of a threat the targeted people pose."
Cheese and rice!    

See, this backassward kinda academic (cult of irrelevance) inappropriate handwringing and worrying about the wrong thing chiz is the height of doofusness.  

Great Satan shouldn't really give a flying  Sturzkampfflugzeug what enemies, frenemies or non nation state actor supporting nations think of Great Satan's eternal penchant for upgrading, creating and deploying new vaggazzled ways of war
"From the perspective of Pakistani law, we probably committed a murder," says a former CIA official. "We commit espionage every day, breaking the laws of other countries."
Oh snap! What a dang shame!!
