    Drones, nukes, all that stuff is never justified. It ALWAYS has more bad than good. Kids die, innocent civilians die, it's never good.

    No we aren't. The reality is, it doesn't really matter but America wants to go to war anyway.

    But why are they in war? Oil-rich mongrels? As soon as an Afghan goes to America they are defined as a terrorist, when they have been created by terrorism from the American govt, yet the media does not convey this.

    They are defined as a terrorist for safety, one mistake could lead do a shooting or something like that

    Really? The only reason "shootings" occur is because they are trying to get the media to capture their suffering at the hardship of these terrorist attacks by American govt. and if the govt. is trying to help then why are they killing innocent lives?

    If the terrorists are trying to do something good why are they killing innocent lives?

    Well, I don't condone terrorism but when you look at it from a neutral point, America is doing more harm than good, the only reason they are interested in these wars is for oil. The "terrorists" are bombing your country as a means to get attention from the media for the mass murder that is taking place by your army/drones etc.

    Innocent lives are killed everyday and you don't care, but now that America is doing it to a country you don't even live in.

    What? America is killing innocent people with these appalling "drones" and why does it matter if I live in that country? What, do I have to live there to care about the innocent lives, dying endlessly? Does it not bother you that your country terrorizes these people everyday and as soon as they attack your country they are suddenly "Terrorists", open your eyes, America is the problem. I am not condoning terrorism but people only care about their own race, maybe if we all weren't so racist we would realize this.

    Or maybe if America wasn't here you would not be here right now. As soon as they attack our country only the people/group who attacked it are the terrorists and its because they terrorize us and kill a lot of our innocent people. Can you stop being so ignorant

    Wow, what, how would I not be here, where was America when Irish citizens were being murdered by the British, I would be here because Ireland never needed help from the US, infact you's needed us during the war. Don't you understand why they attack your "people", it's because your country has destroyed their countries, families, children and economies for years, now that you's are getting a taste of your own medicine you don't like it. I know what it's like to be assumed as being a terrorist because I'm a nationalist from Northern Ireland during "the troubles". Just like Muslims, the IRA took to the streets of London for the London government to do something about the murdering of innocents and second class treatment experienced by the Nationalist community. And I am not being ignorant, America is a straight view country and say the killing of innocence is okay, because you are too afraid to know your own history.

    When the hell did we need you drunks in a war. And they did not attack us because we are killing their families. We sent our troops AFTER 9/11 which was a terrorist attack. Too afraid to know your own history? I am not arguing for America I am arguing for these drones only. What if Muslims came to your country and started bombing it, killing INNOCENT lives, what the fack would you do? Let them keep doing it, while doing nothing about it? Or would you attack them and try to stop it, America isn't even meaning to kill innocent lives.

    Also "Drunks" is stereotypical again, this is quite patterned in all your answers -.- America used Ireland as a landing base were the Irish would repair planes etc during the war. Of course 9/11 was a terrorist attack, although there are theories as you know of an "inside job". America may not have attacked Afghanistan but the whole Middle-East is a community of Muslims. Our country has been through terrorist attacks, we don't start wars we sort it our politically, the fight against terrorism must be on an educational and political level. If they are not meaning to kill innocents then why are these drones being sent out, this is one of the worst ways to prevent killing innocents. Last week they bombing a wedding? I think it would be obvious if they are innocent or carrying an AK-47. Also, no need to be rude, I am not contradicting your opinion, I am discussing my thoughts on this topic, who says I am right? I don't claim to be right so don't get annoyed?

    I am curious which war that was. We wouldn't go straight into war, the congress has to approve of that so of course we tried to set it out politically. They are not meaning to because they are using all the technology they have to make the JDAMs more accurate (the missles on the drones). And they are just bombing cities they pinpoint the enemy location and try to take it out, so no American soldiers have to risk their lives again.
