Over the Easter holiday in Yemen, which, of course, is not a holiday in Yemen, drones were blasting objects just as in the Ukraine, black hooded men were pretending to be soldiers fighting for freedom and peace and the Russian way of life. Every so often this weird idea enters my mind that we can spend one religious holiday in peace and quiet. An estimated 55 “militants” or “terrorists” or “Islamic fighters” or “bad people” were killed because “informed authorities”decided that these men were bad and members of al-Qaeda. How can I, or anyone else, dare to disagree with the CIA or the NSÅ or a member of “Special Forces” or some person operating a video stick in Virginia that when we Americans claim that a man is a bad person, he is!
The CIA on the scene insists all of the 55 who died due to Drone attacks were indeed, very, very bad people. OK, so a few minor innocent people died, but in the war against terror, once in a while the innocent must suffer. Barack Obama will sleep peacefully tonight knowing that 55 bad, bad people died in the fight for freedom and the American way of life!
