    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.

    "Three terrorists, including local al-Qaida commander Adnan al- Qathi who is wanted for bombing the U.S. embassy in Sanaa in late 2008, were confirmed killed Wednesday night in a Yemeni-U.S. joint airstrike operation which targeted the militants' vehicle near Sayyan village outside the capital Sanaa,"
    This is a problem?

      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."

                  A bit harsh don't you think? If someone isn't a democrat or an Obama supporter he is that?

                            Pat,
                            Please provide evidence of breaking international law. An attack must have reasonable precautions against civilian casualties. Was this attack different than any other air attack committed by any other nation in the world? What national law was broken? Please be specific.

                            I think citing legal reasons without solid evidence cheapens the idea of international law. Also, the legal does not speak to right or wrong and what we want out leaders o be doing.
