5/9     If U.S. doesn't do assissination, then what do you call
        Operation Neptune Spear aka "Mission Kill Bin Laden"?
        \_ I think theoretically the difference is that the goal of one is
           "kill him/her", while the goal of the other is "capture him/her,
           and don't hestitate to shoot with the possibly of killing if he/she
           and don't hesitate to shoot with the possibly of killing if he/she
           resists capturing."
           \_ OBL did not resist. He didn't even have a weapon on his hand
              when he was shot in the head.
              \_ Like I said, it was "theoretically".  He might have been two
                 seconds too slow in raising his hands, which could be
                 conveniently considered resisting capturing.  -- PP
           \_ Right.  Similarly, those Predator drones are actually designed
              to capture people alive, and they only fire their missiles as a
              last resort.
              \_ Hmm, those missions I cannot explain.  Maybe the Pentagon/CIA
                 phrased those as "destroying enemy facility while tolerating
                 collateral damage on enemy lives"?  -- PP
        \_ US hires the best lawyers to take care of semantics
        \_ "Being a US citizen will not spare an American from getting assassinated
        \_ "Being a US citizen will not spare an American from getting
            assassinated
            by military or intelligence operatives overseas if the individual is
            working with terrorists and planning to attack fellow Americans."
            assassinated by military or intelligence operatives overseas
            if the individual is working with terrorists and planning to
            attack fellow Americans."
            -Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair
           It is obvious that our policy is that we assassinate anyone that we
           feel like.

        No wonder the UC is short in funding.  Just put a damn lid on!
        \_ Before you complain "Now that there are studies for everything,
           some day we'll hear about studiets on studies", please note that the
           Pentagon is always one step ahead of you:
