    Those drone strikes killed so many innocent civilians overseas. Look up what we did in Yemen. He hardly sounds remorseful. And Palestine. All the money we give Israel that funds ethnic cleansing. Yes Obama is a breath of fresh air compared to Trump no doubt. But Obamas foreign policy was no better than Bushs.

    saying there probably would have been more casualties without the drones doesn’t make them right

    Ahhh yes! Our ; Nobel peace president; he was so tormented about using the drones on people, but being a such a deep thinker , he could not allow the Afghani children to bomb our subways . He had to protect America . He is so full of it but in a intellectual sense, he measures every word . But the reality is that he was just another killer who hid behind his shiny , meaningless words.what makes him even more evil is the fact that before he droned them, he went on ; peace mission; visit. It’s like somebody coming to your home and check how many of you living there so he can kill you. In a military language we call this a ; limited theater of operation; .

    To whomever is reading this, I want to remind you that God loves you very much and he has a wonderful plan for your life! 😁

    If you died suddenly this very moment, where do you think you would spend eternity?? If you are not sure, God wants to let you know that he loves you and he sent his Son Jesus to die for your sins that you would not perish but have eternal LIFE!

    Gods love for you is everlasting and cannot be measured. It has no boundaries will look past all your faults. God showed you how much he loved you by sending his one and only Son into the world so that you might have eternal life through him. This is real love, not that you loved God, but that he loved you first and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away all your sins. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If you are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that you have not fully experienced his perfect love!! Friend, you have a choice, but know that YOU ARE GODS CHOICE and he will never change!

    The bible says in Romans 6:23 that the wages of Sin is death! But the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour!! Romans 10:9,13 says that WHO EVER CALLS ON THE NAME OF JESUS AND BELIEVES IN THEIR HEART AND CONFESSES WITH THEIR MOUTH THAT HE IS LORD SHALL BE SAVED!

    Im going to say a prayer for you! Lord bless my friend and their family with a long and healthy life. Lord I pray you protect them and make yourself real to them the same way you did for me in Jesus name. Friend, If you would like to receive Jesus in your heart or rededicate your life to him, right where you are say this with me with your heart and your lips out loud…

    Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart, forgive of all my sins, wash me and cleanse me, set me free. I believe that Jesus died for me and is coming back again for me. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Jesus make yourself real to me. I accept you today as my Lord and Saviour. I’m born again, all my sins are forgiven, I’m on my way to heaven because Jesus is in my heart!

    Friend if you’ve said that prayer, I pray that from this day forward your life will never be the same. I tell you today that all your sins are forgiven, and always remeber dont run from God but run to him because Jesus Loves You and has a plan for your life!

    If you prayed with me, plz type amen!

    God bless!😁

    The one remaining question about the drone program I have is, he says drones strikes are preferable to conventional methods of war, on which agree, but the US wasn’t at war with Pakistan or Yemen or many of the other countries where strikes occurred. Even if you call it a war on terrorism, which is as stupid as the war on drugs but okay, it is police work, not soldier work. Is it really necessary for the police to use drones?

    Obama is a president that you can fall asleep watching. Biden probably will be too, since he is “sleepy Joe”.
    Congrats Americans, you’re going to sleep at night again.
