WTCI can agree to disagree on the need for a UN probe of Israeli, US and UK drone strikes. But this Toronto Star staff-ed’s lede is really warped.

How would Americans feel if another country launched a drone strike in the streets of New York City to kill an enemy? It’s a far-fetched notion, to be sure.

Al-Qaida already used manned aerial vehicles over the streets of, uh, New York City to take out a pair of skyscrapers. We call it 9/11.

How would the Toronto Star feel if terrorists used airplanes as missiles in the streets of Toronto?
