What do you think of the Distinguished Warfare Medal that's in the news?

February 16, 2013

Does anyone care about the drones that are being used all around the world, including the USA? Does anyone care that innocent people, including US citizens and children are killed by drones? Without calling for me to be banned, and calling me an extremist, what are some thoughts about the new medal for drone operators in the military? Is it okay for Obama to have a "kill list" of Americans, and to use drones to kill Americans on American soil? And then to award the drone operators medals for killing Americans?

"The Defense Department has decided to create a medal to honor US soldiers who sit at a computer and operate armed, unmanned vehicles bombing people thousands of miles away."--By John Glaser

"Does President Obama think that he has the power to kill American citizens on U.S. soil? If he accuses a guy in the Arizona desert or rural Montana of being an Al Qaeda terrorist, is it ever kosher to send a drone over to blow him up, as was done to Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen killed in Yemen? Or is it never okay to drone strike an American citizen to death here in the United States?"--Conor Friedersdorf, FEB 15 2013

Boris and EJ don't like my posts and call me names. Just because I support the Constitution and believe in our republic. Hmmm...

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
