Remember when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stood up on the Senate floor for nearly 13 hours in an ideological protest of the Obama administration's hypothetical authority to use drone technology to kill U.S. citizens on American soil? Well, now he's saying killing a certain U.S. citizen on some specific American soil in Watertown, Massachusetts last Friday may not have been the worst thing in the world. During an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Network Monday night, Paul attempted to make a distinction between the American "sitting in a caf" example he has often cited and the "imminent threat" faced by Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Friday night. "I've never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an active crime going on," Paul said. Though his next example offered up a disturbingly low bar for the predator drone option. "If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash," he said, "I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him."

How the Working People Can Be Saved From the Oppression of the Landowners and Capitalists For Ever: http://www.icl-fi.org/ The enemies of the working people, the landowners and capitalists say that the workers and peasants cannot live without them. "If it were not for us," they say, "there would be nobody to maintain order, to give out work, and to compel people to work. If it were not for us everything would collapse, and the state would fall to pieces. We have been driven away, but chaos will bring us back again." But this sort of talk by the landowners and capitalists will not confuse, intimidate, or deceive the workers and peasants. An army needs the strictest discipline; nevertheless the class-conscious workers succeeded in uniting the peasants, succeeded in taking the old tsarist officers into their service, succeeded in building a victorious army. The Red Army established unprecedentedly firm discipline-not by means of the lash, but based on the intelligence, loyalty and devotion of the workers and peasants themselves. And so, to save the working people from the yoke of the landowners and capitalists for ever, to save them from the restoration of their power, it is necessary to build up a great Red Army of Labour. That army will be invincible if it is cemented by labour discipline. The workers and peasants must and will prove that they can properly distribute labour, establish devoted discipline and ensure loyalty in working for the common good, and can do it themselves, without the landowners and in spite of them, without the capitalists and in spite of them. Labour discipline, enthusiasm for work, readiness for self-sacrifice, close alliance between the peasants and the workers - this is what will save the working people from the oppression of the landowners and capitalists for ever. ////////////////////////////////////////// Recorded: End of March 1919 (??? ???????? ?????? ?????????? ?? ????? ????????? ? ????????????)
