Illegal, Unjustified and Deeply, Deeply Stupid -- part II

U.S. Airstrike Aims at Qaeda Cell in Somalia
The latest attack [Monday night] by American warplanes apparently came in a remote area of southern Somalia and killed between 22 and 27 people, according to an elder from a neighboring town, who spoke to Reuters by telephone from the Kenya-Somalia border crossing at Liboi.
[Sunday night's] attack, by an AC-130 gunship operated by the Special Forces Command, is believed to have produced multiple casualties, the Pentagon official said. It was not known immediately known whether the casualties included members of a Qaeda cell that American officials have long suspected was hiding in Somalia.
As long as they're aiming at what they think is al-Q'aeda, who's gonna argue, right?

Only a maniac intent on martyrdom would argue with American warplanes. Clearly.

Therefore, they can drop bombs on anybody, anywhere, anytime, provided they claim they're aiming at al-Q'aeda. And if you don't like it, then you're a terrorist.

Three Cheers for The Phony War.
