The Bolt From The Blue

President Obama has ordered more drone hits in Afghanistan in the last six months that President Bush did in three years. Why is that? Is it because more drones are available now? Is it because it is cleaner and nicer to kill from ten thousand feet than ten feet? Israel relies more on human attacks, as witness the recent affair in Dubai, but which is better, man or robot? Which is better, the shot in the dark or the bolt from the blue? 



In nature’s balance, all would say

Is predator and prey

In Pakistan by night or day

It’s Predator and pray

In Israel it’s if I may

We have a different way

We show that terror does not pay

And leave him where he lay

Now who can say the better way

To bring the foe to bay

In truth I think they’re both okay

And dare you to say nay
