The mistake the writer makes is to think that the knaves in the Senate, who have been bought and paid for by the corporate dollar, actually feel any facility to do anything except what they’re told when it comes to voting about anything that affect the vested interests of the 1%. Half of the Democrats there are as Republican as that uber-republican good old Joe Leiberman.

interesting analogy with Dublin in the seventies… There was however a shoot to kill policy informally instituted and tacitly approved by Thatcher. Quite a scandal in Gibraltar when the SAS were engaged with “taking out” several provisional IRA suspects. Some might argue that targeted assassination has always been the dirty business of Governments, of which drones are just the most disgusting, if logical development.
