    American government assassinates one of it's own citizens

    So the Obama admin just bumped off a guy who kinda sorta had some affiliation with Al Qaeda. Or maybe didn't. No evidence was presented and no attempt was made to indict him.


    How do the American members feel about their government awarding itself the power to kill any of you if they deem you a terrorist?


    A good thing?


    Indifferent?


    Worried you are marching towards fascism?

    How is that different than any government in any form that has ever existed? Has there ever been a government that didn't "award itself" the power to do that in some form regardless of what any citizens may have thought about it?

    Pretty sure it doesn't happen in other modern democracies. Citizens get due process.



    The point is that it is setting a new precedent in American politics and law. Citizens are all supposed to be protected and receive certain rights. Allowing the government to kill them on the basis of an allegation is pretty new.

    So what are you (cassin) trying to say exactly? (i.e. do you actually have any personal opinions/feelings yourself about this, or are you incapable due to the American 'education' system / media brainwashing?)

    Is your response to the question of how you feel about your government murdering a human being that has not been proven guilty of anything really, "How is that different than any government in any form that has ever existed?"

    Troubling but unfortunately I've no doubt that most Americans would say almost the same thing, since most standard citizens have been brainwashed/stupefied since birth anyway, to keep them in-control.

    Don't worry your pretty little head. "America is the greatest country in the world." That's all you need to know!
