Unmanned droned strikes are all about American domestic politics rather than about the countries where they are used. They cater to illusions of power, giving Americans a sense that their technical prowess is unparalleled, despite the Pentagon’s inability to counter improvised explosive devices, which are no more than old-fashioned mines laid in or beside roads. The drones have even been presented as being more humanitarian than other forms of warfare, simply by claiming that any dead males of military age killed in a strike must have been enemy combatants.
America is Deluded by Its Drone-Warfare Propaganda (via azspot)
Every time someone says drones are the most humanitarian way of killing, I die a little more inside. Human welfare and killing people doesn’t go together.
From a country where we debate the death penalty, we send out drones to other people’s lands to kill the people there that may or may not be involved with a group of people trying to save their land, out of our sheer fear of their power.
Then we claim that the innocent ones who died were collateral damage. Let me damage your fucking face, Obama, you son of a bitch. And it’s not just Obama, I blame the Congress, the Senate, and all of American government and higher up people who have the power to stop this but don’t. Screw all of y’all. I’m going to make sure there’s a special place in hell for you, you bastards.
