The United States government and its military continue to target with killer drone warfare people all over the Middle East and North Africa. Pakistan has been bombarded with drones continually, and these drone attacks are indiscriminate in their deadly slaughter.
It is unlikely that anyone who is a true threat to the U.S. is ever killed in these attacks, but even if this were the case, any innocent bystanders or family members are not considered when U.S. drone strikes rain down on Pakistani villages. Women, children, and the old are not spared when cowards in uniform sitting in plush offices in the U.S., target and fire upon innocents in faraway lands. Those missiles bring death and destruction to any who happen to be in the area, and the “collateral damage” is irrelevant to those politicians and power brokers in the government and the military.
Sheldon Richman wrote this article recently titled “America’s Drone Terrorism.” In it, he referenced a critical and extensive report about drone warfare called Living Under Drones, that was a joint effort by the New York University School of Law’s Global Justice Clinic and Stanford Law School’s International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic. It is well worth the time to look at this information.
The so-called “War on Terror” is simply government code for perpetual war. There is no real or stated enemy, there is no geographical limit for aggression, there is no current threat, nor has there been an attack by any country on the U.S. mainland. Therefore, there is no valid reason for war.
The new policy of secret “kill lists,” lists of those the U.S. government without the benefit of due process of law targets for assassination, is a way to achieve the government objective of unending war. These assassinations (murders) are affected mostly by the use of killer drones, and in the end will create many more enemies of America.
The government objective is perpetual war, and they are attempting to achieve this goal by manufacturing fake terrorists to include on secret kill lists, and then using drones to murder them. So long as the sheeplike Americans remain in a state of fear, this ploy will allow the government and its military to continue its assault on innocents, and will lead to never ending war!
