Reader Input: What gives US bombing rights?

-A +A

Why are we so hypocritical when it comes to the use of drones?
We don’t see China, Russia, Iran or North Korea using them. We use them to kill militants, but they also kill innocent women and children.
What gives us the right to bomb sovereign countries, when we advocate democracy and human rights?
And aren’t we the only country to ever use a nuclear weapon on another country? Where do we get the authority to attack others with impunity, other than in the defense of our own country?
It appears we suffer from denial and self-importance.
