Wed, 19:55: “If a drone strike kills a man’s son, the father will go to war with you no matter what. That has nothing…” http://t.co/6xPuCkyuZC

And if we don't use the drones, we'd be sending in troops (or using airstrikes) and they'd *still* be mad at us. But we'd also have folks back home mad about *our* casualties.

And since *ignoring* the people we carry out drone strikes against is *not* a *viable* option, just what would you have us do?

Wed, 19:51: Sweden Allows Public Masturbation | http://t.co/1hpWAHnqNh http://t.co/V0SB5Yvgm1

You didn't read the *second* link I sent you.

Time (and a whole bunch of other places) got it wrong.

The court ruled that since he wasn't masturbating "at" someone, he wasn't guilty of sexual assault (the women who complained was *behind* him!).

But that doesn't mean that public masturbation is legal. Just that it's not sexual assault *if* you aren't "targeting" someone.

It's still possible to be charged with things like creating a public disturbance.

BTW, this should tell you a lot about how carefully stories get checked out before getting published.
