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

September 8, 2013

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!

Silverwolf’s Jeffersonian Epistle to the Fascist, President Obama

June 10, 2012

In light of the Hitlerian NDAA Bill, signed by the President on December 31, 2011, a day that will live in Infamy, which allows the US Military to arrest and secretly detain in military prisons for an indefinite period any US Citizen without benefit of a lawyer, and in light of the President’s claimed authority to assassinate American Citizens at will on a White House “Kill List”, and in the light of the President’s Murder of another 18 women and children in a NATO air strike in Pakistan, and in light of all the other Human Beings he has Murdered and permanently maimed in his immoral drone strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen, and in light of the President’s denying to the terminally ill in those States which have legalized medical cannabis the use of that medication, which in itself is another form of premeditated Murder, Silverwolf addresses the following Jeffersonian epistle to the President:

Sire,

No longer persevere in sacrificing the Rights of One Individual to the inordinate desires of the Executive Branch, but deal out to all equal and impartial Right.

Let no act be passed by Executive Order that may infringe on the Rights and Liberties of the Individual, but deal out to all equal and impartial Right.

These are our grievences, which we have thus laid before Your Majesty with that freedom of language and sentiment which becomes a free people, claiming their Rights derived from the Laws of Nature, and not as the gift of their chief executive.

Let those flatter who fear. It is not an American art.

Presidents are the servants, not the proprietors of the People. Open your breast, Sire, to Libertarian and expanded thought. Let not the name of Barack Obama be a blot on the page of History. It behooves you  to think and act for yourself and your People. The whole Art of Government consists in the art of being Honest.

We are willing, on our part, to sacrifice everything which Reason can ask to restore tranquillity. On your part, be willing to restore the Bill of Rights on a generous plan.

The G-d who gave us Life, gave us Liberty. The hand of Force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.

This, Sire, is our last, our determined resolution: To vote you out of office.
