I think the more interesting question is, why do we expect that those in the Middle East won’t hold it against us for striking their land? If America were constantly being bombed, there’d be outrage. Yet we think it’s okay to do it in Pakistan? It’s wrong.

It is a major failure of the Obama Administration.

Great points @brandon Killian. Sounds like we are poking a hornet’s nest and not expecting to get stung. We defeated the Axis, so why are we so concerned with these cave men?

It so morally wrong it is beyond words. Waste of money and killing innocent people.

On the cost of drones; they are more than $900,000 per year. The fiscal year 2012 budget included nearly $5 billion ($5,000,000,000) for drone research, development and procurement. This figure represents the known costs; it does not include funding that may be classified.

@John The $900,000 price tag I got directly from Obama’s speech today. Ha, I guess I should have known it was a lie.
