// __ Obama Killed a 16-Year-Old American in Yemen. Trump Just Killed His 8-Year-Old Sister.
Even though I don’t agree with any of it and I know that they don’t give a sh!t about how much “collateral damage” may be in their way, I took the time to read twice Glenn’s article and the NY Times ones, trying to figure out what they gained out of it:
// __ U.S. Commando Killed in Yemen in Trump’s First Counterterrorism Operation
The military’s Central Command said in an earlier statement on Sunday that “similar operations have produced intelligence on Al Qaeda logistics, recruiting and financing efforts.” In previous raids
// __ A Raid on ISIS Yields a Trove of Intelligence
in Iraq, Syria and Somalia, commandos have recovered laptop computers, thumb drives and cellphones that yielded important information about militant leaders’ locations, activities and associates.
yet, no where is clear why they had to kill 30+ people. It is all about what they see as hypothetical ends justifying the means at any cost.
Two weeks after the killing of Awlaki, a separate CIA drone strike in Yemen killed his 16-year-old American-born son, Abdulrahman, along with the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and several other innocent Yemenis.
… the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and the several other innocent Yemenis have names and had lived so long until they were killed by USG because that “hit” gave them some points in their computer games …
The New York Times yesterday reported:
that military officials had been planning and debating the raid for months under the Obama administration, but Obama officials decided to leave the choice to Trump.
For Christ’s sake, how much multitasking do you expect Mr “Yes we can” to do?!? He never said or implied “Yes I can”. He was packing the hell out of the White House and at the same time busy bombing people all the way to the end of his term. Yet, having left “unfinished jobs” should be enough to claim back his Nobel Peace Prize.

computer materials inside the house that could contain clues about future terrorist plots
… “could” contain “clues” … as perceived by the genocidally, psychopathic USG. Trump, just doesn’t care about political correctness (which doesn’t have to be a bad thing, really). In fact, let’s keep the count straight. So, far he has killed, how many? 30 individuals? I would bet one of my balls Trump will start less wars, kill less people than Mr. “Yes we can”, “it turns out I am better at killing people than I could have ever imagined” did.
At some point during the Vietnam war they stopped the head counts, because, they said, it was “immoral”. Yeah, right! USG genocidally invades a country based on lies and then talks about morality! I think head counts are alright. At the end of the day, this is what it is all about, right? You kill one of our own and we will kill 30 of yours. I know, you don’t even have to kill one of our own.
Some of you have had issues when I compare USG with Nazi Germany during WWII
a) USG and their Western NATO acolytes have 8 timed the genocidal ratio of Nazi Germany during WWII (I know, I know Muslim people don’t count anyway, right? Oh, no, wait! Isn’t that the same Nazi mindset?)
b) When Nazis were doing their “freedom loving” they didn’t go half way around the world to mess with people who couldn’t defend themselves on an equal basis, but fought on Britain, Russia, France, … head on and all at once and kept fighting even after Russia raised the killing ratio to 1:1. Why is it so hard for USG and their NATO allies to find Russia and China on a map?
c) After the election I heard someway say “our secret service will not let someone like Trump be the POTUS” I wondered what she meant, since Trump had been already elected. I thought she meant that they had something on him that they could use to mess with his candidacy (they had already posted on the Washington Post nudes of his wife, mother of his son), but a friend clarified to me “no, she meant they would kill him” … Let’s see, now, how gringos fair in that department:
Even semi-god, Nobel Prize in Physics Max Planck lost his son Erwin in one of those attempts:
at least eight women and seven children, ages 3 to 13, had been killed in the raid
Again, those women and children were human beings with names … We should not play their “they are less of a people than we are” game. Pronouncing Arabic is not that hard. The IPA would greatly help with it. Their names should be written in Arabic, with their English (and optimally IPA) transliteration.
And Trump notoriously vowed during the campaign to target not only terrorists but also their families.
Even mobsters understand you should not do this. But again, it is not even primarily about Trump, but USG as a whole and “We the people”. Politicians do this because they know they can get away with it. “‘The’ land of ‘the’ free and ‘the’ ‘brave'” has “democratically” gone down the toilet.
I have had to admit sooner than I expected I was wrong. I did expect Western MSM and US IT companies to keep being up Trump’s @ss, but, no they have, once again, paid homage to their emperor, way quicker than I ever expected.
