  1. The drones don't hurt anyone, idiots. There are no weapons on them, they're for reconnaissance Stop fucking up the lives of everyone who lives on the base. You're just pests.
    We're not the ones who choose war. Your "beloved" leaders: aka liars (like your president) choose that. We have no choice but to do what we're told or go to jail and have our lives ruined for disobedience.
    Why don't you do something useful like work on getting that little shit you put in office impeached?
