Missile Attack on Syria vs. Drone Strikes: What’s the Difference?

It’s interesting to see the reactions of the lemmings of the Democratic Party’s Anti-War Wing, now in action to stop Obama’s retaliation against the Mass Murderer and War Criminal Assad. Every few weeks, for the past few years under Obama, the press has reported drone strikes on Islamic radicals in al-Quaeda and various other groups, and there has been far more criticism of these as a vapid, immoral, and stupid policy from the Ron Paul-Libertarian wing of the Republican Party than from any Democrats. But now that Obama is going to take the very same action against a vicious head of a Nazi-like regime, many Democrats, as well as that Repulican-Libertarian wing, are up in arms.

But how do these two actions — a missile strike on a mass murderer and his military and drone strikes on mass murderers and the heads of their militias — how do they fundamentally differ? It seems to me not very much, except that by constantly killing innocent civilians along with the guilty jihadists in these drone strikes, Obama creates a fresh huge wave of cannon-fodder recruits for the radicals. In a raid on Assad’s military, or Assad himself, probably only guilty war criminals and their assistants would suffer.

Silverwolf’s brand of Libertarianism — and we think it was Jefferson’s too — wants those Jeffersonian inalienable Natural Human Rights to extend to every single Human Being on Earth, not just in America and Western Europe. And when we see such egregious mass murder and war crimes being carried out with impunity, it seems to us that the Western Powers, with the most powerful military in the world, have some sort of moral obligation to intervene to stop the carnage and kill the Nazi. Using the use of chemical weapons as an excuse for smashing a murdering Fascist, as if all the other weapons from incendiary bombs to napalm to land mines wasn’t excuse enough, is fine with Silverwolf. Hitting the Syrian military with missile strikes is no different from the frequent hitting of Jihadists in Pakistan, and no rank-and-file Democrats or Republicans are making a big issue of that except a few like Senator Paul, although we have made an issue of it because of its murder of innocent civilians along with the guilty. So it just goes to show how hypocritical is the Democrat’s and Republican’s current opposition to missile strikes against Syria. It may be unconstitutional to hit Syria without Congressional approval, but just as unconstitutional as Obama’s frequent drone attacks, which none of these same puling politicians on Syria whine about.

So Silverwolf disagrees with most of his fellow Libertarians on this issue

Obama is right for once. Smash any Fascist who uses chemical weapons!

Hoooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwww! — Silverwolf
