Cross-posted from TomDispatch.com It’s been going on for so many years ― Predators cruising, looking for their prey. Some

Whether in a dark alley or a high-rise tower, the psychopath seeks to dominate others in order to satisfy their own desires. To deploy fear, shame or deceit to acquire your submission, the psychopath needs to know how you feel and how you will react.
And we must stand forever vigilant in protecting our impressionable children from the exploits of the Jews and the homosexuals
Partly for convenience, and partly because the chicks dig it.
While the BBC essay and others, including the original report in Science, do not make for especially pleasant reading, I urge everyone to read something about this new groundbreaking study, for its results are important for every single human on Earth.
For all the fact that drone strikes are regularly reported by the media, very few Americans have a basic understanding of the contours, tactics, geography, strategy and weaponry used in the CIA's largest assassination campaign since the Vietnam era.
Savage. Menacing. Ruthless. Predators get a pretty bad rap. But behind those jagged teeth, powerful jaws and razor-sharp claws, every predator has a softer side. Maybe even an adorable one.
Clearly the strike that killed the two hostages on January 15th was not a random drone attack on an innocent Pashtun tribesman's house. The CIA had come to the correct conclusion via spies, eavesdropping and or surveillance that Taliban terrorists were holed up in the compound and launched a "signature strike" on it.
I understand raccoons need to eat too, just not my chickens. I can't argue with nature, but I can keep my pets safe. Although their suburban yard is large, they have limited space to run and hid for cover. They are trapped.
Wild claims by anti-drone activists dominate the conversation, since the CIA and military have an official policy of not commenting on drone strikes. Average U.S. citizens cannot talk to drone pilots to find out whom they are killing based on what intelligence and why. However, recently, at a conference on drones at Boston College, I got the extraordinary opportunity to do just that.
Children as young as 3 and 4 are often shown as sex objects in child porn and even those who are older do not often have the "choice" or the capability to make a "choice" to be involved. This is a clear and simple form of predation.
Earlier this year the UK government finally gave up on trying to control the American grey squirrel in the UK. Which prompts the question: Why has the grey squirrel been such a success in Britain?
By taking action, Michael M. and John Kirby were able to provide investigators with information. As difficult as this must have been for them, they acted not to save themselves but to help prevent other boys from being exploited by a sexual predator.
By protecting some of the jaguars' most important habitat, we're opening the possibility that these cats may find their way north from Mexico either on their own or with help from people, forming a population of jaguars in the United States for the first time in decades.
The rest of us don't need to have absolutes declared about nature. Is the predator absolutely the big force, or is the vegetation absolutely the big force? Wait a minute, maybe the hippos are the big force?
