The killing of U.S.-born Anwar al-Awlaki means that one very, very bad bad man had a very bad bad day! Meanwhile, a debate seems to be shaping up as to whether or not killing him via drone is somehow "cricket" in terms of warfare! My response, hell to the yes! Dead is dead and this creature needed eradication! The fact that he was born here only makes his acts and intentions more heinous and frankly, citizenship doesn't matter a tinker's damn when you're openly and vocally plotting against the U.S. and its citizens!
I don't want to sound like some sort of hardass, but these are the same people who planned and financed and directed the killing of some 3,000 innocent humans on 9/11 and they need to be erased from the face of this planet if we ever have a hope in hell of moving into a better place in terms of international terrorism. If they think they can kill, maim and traumatize this country or other innocents with no consequences, then they will continue to do so!
Screw it! Wipe them all off the face of this blighted planet and let God sort out the details!
