Comment Re:Just like a call center (Score 1) 52

It will run like any other call center does. Where each team of client support representatives, has a supervisor to handle the difficult problems, military will have supervisor that will take control and shoot.

erm.. no

Civilians are not allowed to pinpoint targets with lasers or fire missiles. They operate only Reapers that provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance,

So I checked on the website and sure enough.. I could not log in. so I phoned them and I was told that About 10,000 passswords had been reset and that it was a "minor data breach" and if i wanted my account checked i could. I then asked if anyone had ordered anything since last night as that was my last known order. All was well. They are very much playing it down ... but we shall see, there nothing on the interwebs about it yet

The original poster is not entirely right. Here is for example the data for Pakistan:

Total strikes: 421 Obama strikes: 370 Total killed: 2,489-3,989 Civilians killed: 423-965 Children killed: 172-207 Injured: 1,158-1,738

So yes, many civilians but not anywhere near 96%. In any case, there is still a huge difference to terrorism, because drone strikes are not intended to kill civilians, many civilian deaths are only accepted as a side-effect. It boils down how you interpret the "double effect doctrine". In my point of view, drone strikes are serious crimes just like terrorist attacks but the two things should be kept apart and not one can justify the other.

hmm... interesting you just HAD to point out Obama did more!.. you think maybe it's a partisan thing? ..lol

Where the hell else can I carry it? I've got jeans and a t-shirt. The phone fits in my jeans pocket so that's the only logical place to put it. I guess I could get a belt clip and have it catch on everything but I think not. How about they could just make it where I have to actually unlock the screen to make a call? Problem solved!

fucking simple... I buy trousers (or pants to you yanks :P ) with my stuff in min... cargo trousers, the map pocket is great for yer phone when paired with bluetooth headset.
I also buy shirts/tops at times with phone in mind.It's not rocket science
But no... it always boils down to.. " WAAAAH... moan moan moan"
So just for you..... have a gander at this

Harmless? Marijuana is linked to higher chances of developing mental disorders and other psychiatric problems. Not to mention the smoke is harmful for our lungs.

I'll give you that alcohol and tobacco are far worse, but to call it harmless is just as wrong as to call it as dangerous as heroin.

CBD is a fantastic anti-psychotic and is going under further research. and anything can unlock a genetic predisposition ... alcohol, light... anything can trigger it.. not just cannabis

Maybe if you had bottled water, you'd drink it instead of coke and other nasty things. Despite popular belief, tap water, even with a Britta, is nothing like bottled water which is actually nice to drink.

Not to mention it's bottled by the same companies like Pepsico and Coke that make soda. So if people keep drinking water these companies have nothing to worry about.

We should make them worry and stop buying bottled water. Not only are you flushing your money down the toilet, but getting all those empty bottles out of our waste stream would be a great benefit for all of us.

I hear yah , just check out some vintage Penn and Teller to illustrate the point hilariously! https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

In Afghanistan, there are nearly no Arabs. It's inhabited by Pashtuns, Tajiks, Uzbeks, Hazara, Aimaqs and other ethnic groups, none of them is Arab or speaks a semitic language.

Maybe it's time to actually inform yourself about Afghanistan before making such bold statements?

Erm.. I think you'll find that Muslims are more than adequate at speaking Arabic seeing as how it's the language of the religion itself...
