Default dude gets ptsd from mudering kids with drones

apparently being a drone killer isnt all its cracked up to be. at least this dude has a little bit of a conscience, even though he probably killed more kids than adam lanza

Would you prefer drone operators celebrate each child kill like Palestinians do when they kill some Jewish kids?

Murder implies intent. This guy did not go out seeking to kill kids.

LOL! Typical bad reporting.

Guessing it was he didn't plan on joining the military when he went to the recruiting office with his friend.

What a foolish thing to say IMHO ichy.

The "Dude" may have joined the military by accident, but when he did and proved he had the talents it took to pilot a drone, he proved to us all, that he was not just a cog automation in a killing machine. Because his decisions and actions ended up killing innocent children. Making our 'Dude" a finer human being than you ichu because he recognized his own guilt rather than rationalizing it away.

On the other hand I could recount to you my experiences in a rather painful divorce, when the only thing that kept me sane was killing millions of non existent zylons in some computer game. At least it kept me busy and and sane. As I got the last laugh when my ex wife went to jail for multiple felony fraud counts three years later.

If I had used violence against my ex-wife, I would be criminally liable, and how is our
" dudes " case any different?

Our "Dude" pulled the trigger just as certainly as our latest Newton school shooter. They both pulled the trigger and real and not imaginary innocent children died.

I rarely participate in these political hatred masturbation sessions known as the P&N forum .

But I just have to say, after spending so long reading your posts, you are hopeless, complete, total, and utter dumbass of the highest order.
Your posts are almost always shit, and this one is no different.

Wow!

That might have set a new record for moronic equivalence statements on the internet.

First off, because you're probably not the best example of society already, based on your posting. Second, you're CONDITIONED to follow orders. All this guy did was follow orders. If he went rogue and bombed a orphanage, go on and hang him, but he followed orders...and militaries and based on following orders. They fall apart when ANYONE is allowed to question orders.

What's perfectly predictable is he is a Hamas apologist and would find any reason to excuse worse action. He does have a deep seated hatred going back many decades so there's no help when he won't take it.

Back then when the internet didn't exist, you could get away w\ simply making those hippies out to be crazy. Because after all, most american's back then thought we were in a legitimate war apart from those damned hippies and returning veterans who joined their ranks.

And now today we know that staged events like the gulf of tonkin are used to conveniently get us into wars that we have no business being in.

And then when you realize the government does such calculated things you start to look at similarities to pearl harbor or even 911.

Can the drone operator, abort an attack if he thinks there are too many civilians in the way? Or does it require someone higher up the chain of command to cancel it.

he can abort it in the sense that he can send it somewhere else if he has enough time.
