    Personally, I've long been against drone strikes against supposed terrorists. I've never understood why the nations these acts occurred in didn't protest vehemently. The drone strikes are obviously extra-judicial, assail national sovereignty and result in widespread chaos and terror. The deaths that result should be categorized as premeditated, aggravated murder. Drone strikes are terrorism. How can you claim to wage a war on terrorism using acts of terror. "Logic" like that makes my poor, simple head throb with agony. I'll never get it.

    Anyway, I'm glad to see wiser heads than mine are working on the problem. I doubt reports like this will solve the problem, but the will begin to reframe the argument in a way that will hopefully shame the U.S. into rethinking the policy:

    The Military-Industrial establishement could care less what the UN Security Council thinks. There is money to be made in the Drone and Arms industry.

    Don't look up!
