Barack Obama ‘has authority to use drone strikes to kill Americans on US soil’

Capable of firing an explosive shell or canister shot every six seconds, the Hotchkiss 1.65" Mountain Gun was a light artillery piece with a range of 2 miles.The canister shot produced a fan shaped spread of thirty lead balls, and was particularly devastating at close range.Four of these were used at Wounded Knee.

This is a rather stupid dialogue at the national level. A good parallel is what the US 7th Cavalry did to Indians that had been disarmed prior to Wounded Knee. It was a slaughter by government forces justified because there was a gun. The current administration has set the stage for a high tech slaughter by drones with the statement ‘engaged in combat.’ One can only hope the collateral damage to women and children is not dusted off as ‘regrettable and unfortunate situation.’
