It was just one night
Within hours of winning the election, Obama bombed Yemen. The drone war violates both national and international law, has absolutely no public oversight, and continues the long tradition of colonial war that threatens global security and the safety and dignity of people around the world.
Tuesday was a huge victory. Racists, sexists, homophobes, and drug warriors all got their asses handed to them. But elections are signifiers, not the signified. It was just one night. The ice caps melt, wealth continues to concentrate, and the war machine marches on. Lets not forget that the real fight, the fight over the knowledge and culture and attitudes that actually determine what politicians and governments do, continues every day."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez

This has nothing to do with the election he would have bombed Yemen had he lost as well, he would still be our president today no matter who had one. The office doesn't change on Nov 7th.
Oh wait you want to talk about drones? Do we really care it was a drone instead of a B-2? Hey at least with the drone it doesn't cost us as much to bomb Yemen.
Oh wait your complaining about civilization as usual, its cool I get it.
So what do you want me to do about it?

I'm pretty sure they had this OP planned for months now.
It's not like he sat down and was like, "Aight, as a celebration, someone pass me my Sixaxis, I wanna bomb yemen."

This thread is now about one night stands and their many consequences. Go.
