Every American president needs a little of that in today’s world The Three Faces of Barack Obama by Thomas Friedman

Wait, so every American president needs to be quick to drone? That’s the whole problem, that drone attacks are seen to be rash and sloppy—too quick.

It was revealed by Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill in February that drone targets were being located by using phone metadata and geolocation of cell phones. Instead of being careful to make absolutely sure that the targeted individual is the one killed—and not simply innocents in the unlucky vicinity of a certain cell phone—they are quick to rain the missiles down.

And, of course, Constitutional protections were too slow for President Obama’s drone army, which assassinated two American citizens—one a 16-year-old—with no trial. And the US government is reportedly considering another American citizen for extrajudicial execution.

Alterglobalization Declaration: Take Up the Baton by Michael Hardt (Ft. Antonio Negri) 1

Hardt and Negri prefer this term over “anti-globalization,” a term that suggests protesters' opposition to cross-cultural, international solidarity. No, the protesters and theorists oppose the sort of globalization proffered by capital (banks, corporations, and their governmental agents) and seek an alternative mode of international organization.

“Globalization,” to corporations and financial institution, means the erasure of borders for capital but not for people.

Think NAFTA, which allows for corporations to freely establish factories in Mexico to take advantage of cheaper labor, while citizens who wish to come North for better wages are criminalized.
