Skeleton crew out in the protest zone this morning. Only three out there today. Two older white-haired men (one with a backwards purple hat-perhaps channeling his inner 1980's MTV self) and a tiny ancient woman that appeared to be shrinking and disappearing under her large and colorful scarf/bandanna.
The protest of the week today:
-I am glad he included the FYI. It immediately let me know that he had something of value to share with me. Thanks shipmate.
-For some reason, I didn't picture unmanned aerial vehicles when I saw his sign. Instead I thought of Star Wars.
-Nothing is ever ALWAYS.
-I doubt he was referring to the Star Wars drones.
-In which case, I would be hard-pressed to find a way in which unarmed observation 'drones' are tools of terrorism.
-Again we loop back to differing definitions of 'terrorism.'
-Without getting too serious here though, a valid discussion could be centered around the relative value that the United States places on the life of one of its own citizens and that of someone from say, Afghanistan for instance. This is a discussion (for a different blog post altogether) that is addressed early on in Shannon Beebe's excellent The Ultimate Weapon is No Weapon.
