Dear Leader OBOMBA sends another greeting of peace to innocents

... the drone strikes are not sitting well with many Americans, including libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, liberals and some Republicans. Many have headed on over to Amazon’s page for the Maisto Fresh Metal Tailwinds 1:97 Scale Die Cast United States Military Aircraft toy, where dozens of individuals have published “reviews” of the product.
Most of the comments are quite critical of the president’s drone strikes and have been written over the past week. Much of the “reviews” include sarcastic comments about the president’s secret kill list, government-sanctioned murder and assassinating American citizens.
“This is the best toy ever. Finally, I can pretend that I'm a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize!,” wrote Raini Pachak in a review. “It's like I'm sitting right there in the White House with my very own kill list!”
“I thought this would come with "baseball cards" of American civilians living in other countries that I could target for termination, I had to satisfy myself by destroying everything in my house and giving up on everything I ever believed in, liberty, freedom, and due process!,” wrote Sandinista death squad.
“!!Wow!! You get to feel the thrill of being Commander-in-Chief Obama while bug-splatting little children around the world. I bet the President got a fleet for his own children for Xmas -- what great family fun! You can use the President's kill list or make your own!,” said Awdio Kreep. “This toy is obviously endorsed by the Department of Defense and the defense industry. A Nobel Prize candidate for "Best Peace-Promoting Toy’.” digitaljournal.com
"Whether your violating constitutional rights at home, or bombing children abroad, this toy's perfect for all clandestine missions! Double tap strike to triple your pleasure and casualties!"
"The coolest detail about this toy are the small body fragments you can litter around your target area following a drone missile strike on a wedding party. THEN (this is where the real fun begins) you circle back in an hour and fire MORE missiles at the people rescuing survivors and mourning the dead! Sure if another country did such a thing we'd decry it as heinous terrorism, but when good Ol' Uncle Sam's finger is on the joystick, you can bet that we call what we hit our target, no matter what."
"Nothing teaches your kids about the fact that they may one day be the target of an extra-judicious execution by executive order via a flying death robot from the movie Terminator, then this beautiful piece of replica toy war crimes."
"I really wanted to show my toddler that it's okay to murder people and still come out a "hero" as long as you're in an air conditioned trailer remotely operating a Predator Drone 10,000 miles away in Pakistan.
"I mean, if the government sanctions murder, it must be ok, right?"
"... I bought ten of these for my boy because, as he so rightly says, "So many countries, so little time". He hasn't played with his Matchbox V2 Buzz Bomb once since he became a "Drone Operator". It's given him a real grasp of imperialism, murder of innocents, the art of war and the complex geography of the Middle East. Thank You Maisto, we look forward to your Cluster Bomb, Land Mine and Gas canister multi pack with anticipation hitherto unseen in the world of play." Business Insider.
You've had a busy play day - You've wiretapped Mom's cell phone and e-mail without a warrant, you've indefinitely detained your little brother Timmy in the linen closet without trial, and you've confiscated all the Super-Soakers from the neighborhood children (after all, why does any kid - besides you, of course - even NEED a Super-Soaker for self-defense? A regular water pistol should be enough). What do you do for an encore?
This goes well with the Maisto Extraordinary Rendition playset, by the way - which gives you all the tools you need to kidnap the family pet and take him for interrogation at a neighbor's house, where the rules of the Geneva Convention may not apply. Loads of fun!
