Don't be fooled by the title. There is no "War" to US drone attacks, it is simply murder
. Tribal areas of Pakistan have been consistently
targeted by US drones in our never-ending global war on terror. Sources in the film say that over 1,400 civilian deaths have occurred in Pakistan due
to drone attacks. The administration has even gone on record stating that there have been NO civilian deaths simply by making everyone killed in to an
enemy combatant even if some of these victims were little more than newborn babies. Paint a beard on that 5 year old, that changes everything,
Most of these attacks are now called "profile strikes". That means if you drive a truck, or are seen in a group or any of a hundred other innocent
activities you might
be a terrorist - and that becomes actionable "intelligence". It's a rare attack that catches a known terrorist based on
credible information. Given all the reasons they have said a US citizen could be a terrorist you know they don't need an excuse at all - oh look! he's
got a Ron Paul bumpersticker or an NRA emblem or he buys fertilizer.
Americans rightfully think Sandy Hook was a horrible mass tragedy. What if I said we have committed dozens of Sandy Hooks against people on the other
side of the world? Do you still sympathize or do you write them off as "collateral damage", people that don't matter?
The people of Waziristan live under a constant cloud of death. People are afraid to get together, to celebrate, to play soccer, to go work. They never
know when or where an attack may come from. Their lives have been stopped. Their own government either cannot or will not protect them. 4 Tribal
leaders were killed in a single attack - can you imagine the outrage if 4 Senators from the US were killed at a meeting?
What we are really doing is creating more terrorists. When we attack civilians and wipe out entire families and clans what else can we expect? What
would you do if your family were wiped out by a country you weren't even at war with?
This keeps a constant flow of young men hating the US joining up for jihad. When we run out of enemies we simply make more by using drone attacks.
This isn't war, it's just murder and a racket for those involved in the sale and manufacture of such weapons. It's also the tool of control already
beginning the fill the skies over the US. Today it's Waziristan, tomorrow it's Wisconsin. Just as chemical weapons were outlawed during WW1 we need
to do the same with drones. The potential for abuse is simply far too great.
Even if you don't give a rat's ass about the lives of those killed I beg you to look at the blowback we are creating. Check out the size of the crowds
that gather to protest this very illegal and very immoral method of warfare.
These people hate us, and rightfully so
Warning: This video contains graphic scenes of death and destruction some may find disturbing.
I would hope everyone would find this disturbing.
