There is a huge lack of perspective when it comes to Americaâ(TM)s place in the world. About the drone killings of US citizensâ¦what are we supposed to do? Just let them incite and plot against us in safety? We tried thatâ¦it doesnâ(TM)t work well. And you canâ(TM)t just send in the police to arrest them and bring them to the US. Think of how complicated and dangerous it would be to capture them and bring them back to the US. It is so easy to sit there and criticize, but if you were responsible for the safety of millions of US citizens would you just let the bad guys plot away? A leader has to assume that eventually they will attack and how would you feel if thousands were killed because you didnâ(TM)t act? And for those non-Americans out there - until youâ(TM)ve had airplanes turned into guided missiles killing THOUSANDS and then heard and seen right before your very eyes the same group plotting a repeat or more horrendous performance you have no right to tell us how to defend ourselves. We really are trying to do the right thing but people out there are trying to kill usâ¦Câ(TM)mon, cut us some slack.
