There is one consistent belief that has been held and continue to be held by leaders of America. They fervently hold to the belief that if we kill leaders of terrorist organizations they will collapse and peace will reign. As you recall, we did kill Osama bin Laden and the result was….. I think there are now MORE terrorists in al-Qaeda than when the dead dude led them. Today, we Americans have refined the method of killing bad guys. We send drones into the air, they are informed that the guy down there wearing a robe is a very, very bad guy and must be obliterated from the face of the earth. One question lingers in my mind, how did American intelligence receive the information that led to the conclusion this particular guy was a terrorist?
Our intelligence believed that an Afghan who has been designated to be “Doody” was a terrorist. The drone hovered over the area where Doody lived and soon a missile went down to earth. For some reason, the missile hit an innocent Afghan man and his son. The boy was killed and Doody continued living. So, they began to send machine guns bullets down to earth until Doody was no more.
Again, who decided that Doody was the bad guy?
Has anyone in American intelligence considered that if I wanted to get rid of an enemy or person I considered to be someone who was not my friend, all I have to do is inform American intelligence that he is a terrorist.
