  • A strategy game or strategic game is a game (e.g. computer, video or board game) in which the players’ decision-making skills have a high significance in determining the outcome.
  • (Strategy (game)) Strategy is a solitaire card game which uses a deck of 52 playing cards. It belongs to the same family as Sir Tommy and Calculation, and this can be regarded as the more difficult cousin of Sir Tommy.
  • Strategy video games are a video game genre that emphasize skillful thinking and planning to achieve victory. They emphasize strategic, tactical, and sometimes logistical challenges. Many games also offer economic challenges and exploration.

    civil war

Debate on Drones – Georgetown University

Debate on Drones - Georgetown University
Ladies, gentlemen, esteemed opponents and respected Deans and professors, good evening! Today’s topic is one that completely breaks through the old parameters of the established technologies of warfare. "The United States is justified in using drones to kill American enemies abroad” is an important discussion to have because it raises several important questions.
.
.
.
Let’s look at some reports:
Pew Research Center, Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the Long War Journal, the New America Foundation all report that out of just the past 37 drone strikes conducted in Pakistan in 2O12, close to 3OO people were killed. They all report that close to 29O were terrorists and militants. These reports add that O civilians were killed and perhaps 2-4 were unknown.

Let’s look at the year before, 2O11. April 22 was one of the many drone strikes in Pakistan. US official assured us that “no evidence to support the claim of civilian deaths in April 22 strike.”

Let’s get out of Pakistan. On December 17 last year, the Yemeni government announced that it had conducted a series of strikes against an al Qaeda training camp in the village of al Majala in Yemen’s southern Abyan province, killing a number of al Qaeda militants.

Now why would this house not support drone strikes — these apparently very precise, clearly tactical weapons that eliminate terrorists by the thousands. BECAUSE ALL WHAT I TOLD YOU WAS LIES! These aren’t lies that I devised right here and now — these are lies that the US officials and media outlets have time and again repeated.

In reality, the reason why Pew Research Center, Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the Long War Journal, the New America Foundation all reported that drone strikes primary hit militants was because the US military changed the definition of a terrorist. Today, any adult male in the target area is considered to be a terrorist. That’s why there were no civilians killed.

Half this hall is full of terrorists should these imprecise drones murderously strike us!

In reality, the reason why the US official had no evidence to support that the April 22nd strike did not result in any civilian casualties is mind-boggling because NYT, WSJ, CNN and AP all reported that 5 children and 4 women were killed.

In reality, the journalist who went to cover the drone strike conducted in December 2O11 in Yemen revealed that among the victims of the strike were women, children and the elderly. To be exact, 14 women and 21 children were killed. The US government then had Yemen arrest the journalist who took the photos and showed the victims and showed the Made in USA bombs, and then when Yemen was going to release the prisoner, the “US President Barack Obama directly called the Yemeni president and” say no.

Nathan Freed Wessler, a lawyer from ACLU, a New York based civil rights union organisation that is now suing the US Government, argues that the killings of Al Qaeda’s leader in Anwar al- Awlaqi in Yemen, a country with which the US is not directly at war, by a US Military drone strike was illegal and extra-judicial as there was no “public presentation of evidence nor a trial”.

John Wayne Gacey, a killer clown, who butchered dozens of kids was given a trial just because he was a US citizen despite him being an unequivocally horrible human being. Jeffery Dommer was given rights – he ate kids. He killed them, chopped them up and ate them and the US government gave him rights. Why? Because he’s a US citizen. It’s not because the US cared about Jeffery Dommers or John Wayne Gacey or wanted to protect either one of them. But we’re not sure whose guilty UNLESS we give them a trial.

Let’s look at another case

Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) — A Pakistani man, Kareem Khan, is suing the U.S. government for $500 million over the death of his son and brother, whom he said were killed in a U.S. unmanned drone strike last year, his attorney said. Kareem Khan said an airstrike on December 31, 2009, targeted his home in Machikhel, a village in North Waziristan.

This case was never even heard.

Let’s talk military strategy
As somebody who has interned with the Pakistan Army, and as somebody from Pakistan, I assure you that this is my subject. You know you’re in trouble when even Michael Hayden, the former CIA Director, is against drone strikes. It is important to realise where you are striking! Is it in New York City? No. Is it Islamabad. No. It isn’t where the government has influence, it is where the “American enemy” has influence. When you strike them, get scores of innocent women and children while you are at it, and fly your video game-like toys away, the neighbourhood is left alone at night in wails, and the only people to solace those wails are the comforting voices of al- Qaeda that reassure you they will get revenge.

“Every time the US attacks increase, they increase the rage of the Yemeni people, especially in al- Qaeda controlled areas.Th

The F-16 as flown by one of several test pilot’s. the F-16 has been in opperational use by up to twenty six countries since 1974. This photo was given to us by friend neighbor and adopted elder Ray Dryden

The F-16 has been the mainstay ‘jack-of-all trades’ weapon of choice for over thirty years and stands testament to airforce technology. Increasingly sophistication of equipment aided pilots in adapting to violently turbulent situations. As early as the first world war air battles had captured the attention of all the armies from much needed ground support to the deadly dog fights which filled the skys. After the primitive bi-plane (four individual wings) of the first world war the american airforce began develoment of monoplane (two seperate wings) aircraft capable of traveling farther distances with greater fire power. The US Navy experimented with larger bomb loads in 1931 testing air dropped explosives up to 500 pounds***, thus making them more able for attacking enemy ships. The persistant goal of developping airborne technology is to foster scientific knowlege for the future betterment of all weaponry. this scientific knowlege can be seen as a creative push to a positive change in the technology*. One such push can be seen in tactical use. one such use was the formation of the bomber squadron durring raid opperations. The theory went that a tight grouping of aircraft moving at high speeds would have a high chance of accuracy on ground targets and have a better rate survivability***. On occasion tactics alone could fill the gap of technology and leave the battle victorious. Durring the first month of world war two an american "mercinary air force" were able to safe guard the ‘Burma road’ against Japanese attack. Although the road was eventualy taken the supplies that mannaged to pass the volitle war zone made tremendus contribution to the far east theater. The effect this aircraft had on world wide air power was global production of advanced multirole aircraft. The Japanese began development of the F-2 with a primary goal of sea lane protection yet capable of performing air to air combat as well**. Due to the similarities of the aircraft it can be assumed that the majority of the inspiration for design orriginated from the F-16 either from direct assistance or admiration for its abilities. The F-16 was as much a piece of innovation as it was a merger of existing technologies. The F-16 development hinged upon design schematics from the F-111 ardvark and the F-15**. The F-15 was designed to be the biggest compettetor in air combat. This was acheived superior weapons cargo and a low wing to weight ratio, giving it the ability to turn tightly without the loss of speed**. The F-15 also saw the dawning of the Heads Up Display (or the HUD) a technological marvel that gave the pilots the ability to seek out and annihilate enemy**. The HUD depended on wireless detection of targets and communication between pilots to form their battle strategy. "Such connectivity [has helped] joint forces gain greater awareness to attack the enemy,****" with this advantage our figters have proven themselves to be adversaries beyond compare. One article of orriginal innovation to the F-16 was its ability to withstand a hurtleing nine G’s. This degree of durability to survive nine times the force of earths gravity has given the F-16 an incredible advantage on outmanuvering the enemy through extreeme agiity. American back enginering is evident from post luftwaffe similar aircraft such as the B-2 bomber in comparison to the nazi flying wing. Also the direct adoption of the v-2 rocket, the nazi "buzz bomb", in addition to project paperclip in which nazi scientists were cleared of all war crimes in exchange for intellectual gains. Such gains were injected into the budding United states space program. These gains came in leps and bounds which enabled the United States to stand head to head with the russian kosmonauts. Th F-16 was the first provebial swiss army knife of the skies. "All F-16’s delivered since November 1981 have built-in structural and wiring provisions and systems architecture that permit expansion of the aircraft’s multirole flexibility to perfom strike, night attack and beyond-visual-range interception missions,**" this piece of equipment truly had a tool for every occasion, and, on top of that, could leave combersome unnecessary tools behind. The evolution of military aircraft technology has been comparable to a game of chess. The aircrafts weapon possibilities are focused to have different angles of atack for engagement. Bullets can be seen as pawns easily suplied and containing minimal firepower these pieces advance in a linear pattern curving to attack its victim as affected by gravity. Missles are the Knights of the fighters arsenal firing straight from the plane then curving to strike the enemy into oblvion. Castles can be compared to the bomb payload which falls straig
