How would the US react if a country we're not at war with sent stealth drones into America to kill targeted US citizens
Posted 3/11/13 , edited 3/12/13
I'm sure they can find a legal reasoning to deny the justification of drone attacks somewhere it's all about exploitation.

Tip tip tippity tap.

The given circumstances that a nation we are not at war with at sends drones into American airspace under the directive to target select citizens. I definitely don't think retaliation by invading or launching missiles would be an immediate action, more likely to happen would be a series of pressured bureaucratic and political executives from both nations to compromise (though more likely than not it will be an attempt to acquire unilateral agreement with favorable terms for the U.S.). The immediate actions though would probably be tracking or shooting down said drones out of the sky first. If it were to escalate and a drone strike were to transpire, U.S. citizens will probably rattle the cage and demand that congress write up a declaration of war.

Ditto.
Just make sure he doesn't come back to his leader position to do more stupid shit, though...

Who? The country launching the drones or the target?

I'd say both but I was thinking of the country launching them. History has proven the superpowers are willing to protect the countries they take interest in and disregard the rest.

example. The genocide in East Timor went unnoticed in the media because journalists were banned from visiting, the US supplied weapons and fighter jets to assist the Indonesian army to kill 102,000 civilians. Around the same time as the Cambodian genocide which received massive coverage because they were an enemy, Indonesia were friends of the states.

The conflict depends what your interested in so drone strikes in another country would be to the US's concern of how they wanted to either justify or condemn it to the rest of us.

To answer your question: The last time someone used aircraft to attack targets on US soil, we bombed the shit out of them, sent in 250,000 ground troops and reorganized their government and occupied them for 12 years and counting.

In other words, it already happened, and we effed them up pretty hard, as well as a half dozen other countries in the region.

Was 9/11 actually caused by terrorists, or was it a conspiracy by the government in order to garner public support for the war that it wanted to initiate in Afghanistan?

I think it was a blowback for horrendous foreign policy. I know the pentagon had intelligence months prior to the attacks so they probably allowed it to happen, just like pearl harbour, so they had a pretext for invasion to like you said, gather domestic support for a horrible war.

Regardless of the cause, the effect is very well documented. I think that something similar would happen in the instance provided by the OP.

What if it was China doing this?




I don't know about that, but if it's the other way around actually something like this happened in the 1999. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._bombing_of_the_Chinese_embassy_in_Belgrade

Bill Clinton was president at the time, and thankfully he taken care of the situation properly.
