What hypothetical are you referring to? Its not a hypothetical that innocent children are being murdered as a result of this drone war. You're hypothetical is pretty ridiculous though, and would be hugely offensive to someone who's relative or friend was killed as a result of US drone strikes. Nor is it unreasonable to be morally opposed to such a thing in a way that the "single issue" is enough to abstain from voting at all.
The point of the article is that the Obama win isn't a cause for celebration. The article made your points (that one candidate may very well be better than the other in many areas), and understood that view as perfectly reasonable. And I think its a valid point considering half my friends went out and celebrated the Obama victory and half my Facebook feed was full of gloating (the other half was full of things about how this is the end of America).
I was referring to the article he posted using hypotheticals to appeal to the emotions:
But I didn't mean to put that much emphasis on that part of the article. Of course this happens and innocent people die and we need to be doing something about this, and like I said, talking about it (such as in this article) is a very good first step.
Should have been clearer, my bad. In my defense, I had just woken up haha.
