Privacy, Security, Encryption "Mr. Obama decided to accelerate the attacks - begun in the Bush administration and code-named Olympic Games - even after an element of the program accidentally became public in the summer of 2010 because of a programming error that allowed it to escape Iran's Natanz plant and sent it around the world on the Internet. Computer security experts who began studying the worm, which had been developed by the United States and Israel, gave it a name: Stuxnet." And we're letting these people have unmanned drones. Seems legit.

You are ascribing me thoughts I don't harbor.
It's obvious, as you go back in time, populations have constantly replaced one another on the same patch of land. French do not seek compensation from rome on the grounds of occupation of gaul.
On the other hand, your your choice of wording is revealing: as far as genocides go, you are referring to one where the "murdered, raped" population actually grows by over 300%.
Agreed, it still doesn't make it right.

Selective indignation is when people are more riled up by a targeted computer virus, than, say, beheadings of schoolchildren in sulawesi or treatment of homosexuals in egypt.

But never mind, selective historical justifications, different standards of it applied to their own and to "others" is rampant among indoctrinated...
