Is anybody else bothered by this?

In the predawn hours of Jan. 29, a CIA Predator aircraft flew in a slow arc above the Pakistani town of Mir Ali. The drone’s operator, relying on information secretly passed to the CIA by local informants, clicked a computer mouse and sent the first of two Hellfire missiles hurtling toward a cluster of mud-brick buildings a few miles from the town center.

The article in today’s Washington Post goes on to report that the missiles succeeded in killing a top Al Qaeda operative, Abu Laith al-Libi. So … success?

The strike force relied on local informants to target these particular houses. (Who else was in the houses? What if the informants were mistaken or lying?) And the strike was carried out without prior permission or notification of the Pakistani government … because they might say, “No”; because the delay could jeopardize the success of the operation. (Doesn’t the Pakistani government have a right to say, “No”? Would we tolerate a foreign government carrying out unilateral military actions on our soil … regardless of the justification?)

  1. I’m not bothered by this. There are good people in this world and there are bad people in the world. In the Bible God destroys many people because they are bad. Sometimes entire cities were destroyed by God. The way that I understand the bible good means that you have a relationship with Christ and are going to Heaven. Bad means that you don’t and you are going to hell. Jesus says that know man can know the father unless they know him. Pakistanis are Muslums, they don’t beleive that Jesus saves. That makes them bad people. Just like the many Muslums that God told his people to destroy in the bible. Now for the Christian Pakistanis, if they were to die from this bomb then they win. They will spend eternity in heaven with God. Simple as that. On the day that this happened a very very bad person was removed from the face of this earth. Kind of like David (good guy) and the giant (bad Guy) God has given the US military the knowledge to build the weapons that they have. He has given them this knowledge so they can beat the bad guys. The day that America forgets that there is a good and bad guy is the day we are in trouble.
