    The Liar in Chief

    President Obama said this during his social network outing about a week ago, available on YouTube.

    “For the most part, they’ve been very precise precision strikes against al-Qaeda and their affiliates, and we’re very careful in terms of how it’s been applied.... This is a targeted focused effort at people who are on a list of active terrorists, who are trying to go in and harm Americans, hit American facilities, American bases, and so on."


    "drones have not caused a huge number of civilian casualties"


    Here is a great investigative report of what is actually happening, I give two small excerpts:

    "The CIA’s drone campaign in Pakistan has killed dozens of civilians who had gone to help rescue victims or were attending funerals, an investigation by the Bureau for the Sunday Times has revealed."


    "But research by the Bureau has found that since Obama took office three years ago, between 282 and 535 civilians have been credibly reported as killed including more than 60 children. A three month investigation including eye witness reports has found evidence that at least 50 civilians were killed in follow-up strikes when they had gone to help victims. More than 20 civilians have also been attacked in deliberate strikes on funerals and mourners. The tactics have been condemned by leading legal experts.
    "

    I don't know what is "huge" number according to Obama, but the conservative estimates from this report makes clear for Obama few hundred innocent civilians some of them helping the wounded or attending funerals is not huge.

    Cheers somehow does not sound appropriate here. If you can edit it out, it would be fine.

    We have been involved in war pretty solidly since 1990. If you want to look at something pretty astonishing check this out.

    Are we willing tp allow Pakistan and its stooges to kill in India.
    If there are some collateral damage (how ever despicable they are) occurs in people harboring criminals, so be it. No peace, or rule of law is without sacrifice.
