On what planet do these people live?

Lord Bingham, described as Britain's 'Top Judge' by the Independent, deplores the use of unmanned drones against the Taliban, describing them as, "cruel as to be beyond the pale of human tolerance". The Independent goes on to note that, 'International lawyers also argue that air strikes using drones are state-sanctioned assassinations where the targeted suspected terrorist has no opportunity to defend the case against him,' a right denied to the victims of the 7/7 London Tube Bombings, victim's of the Passover Massacre, and those targeted in the Bali Bombings.

Remember, were the war on radical Islam treated as a law enforcement matter, as Lord Bingham (henceforth to be known as Lord Haw Haw) and former presidential candidates wish, the terrorists will have more legal rights than you or I.

Pray tell, Lord Haw Haw, what is the proper way to kill someone?

I seem to recall 'human rights' advocates making a stink during Operation Desert Storm because the U.S. Army was bulldozer bunkers held by Iraqi troops. The alternative was going in with hand grenades and bayonets, you lead the way though.

Most famously, international campaigners have banned land mines and are now moving on to other areas, inbcluding white phosphorous (smoke bombs) cluster bombers, and now apparently, UAVs.

Where are the campaigns to end suicide bombings and slitting the throughts of flight attendants?
Will's book about the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment and the Battle of 73 Easting, is called A Line Through the Desert. It may be purchased at Amazon
