Child Casualties As a Result of U.S. Drone Strikes

WarCosts:

During my recent trip to Pakistan as part of our upcoming documentary film, Drones Exposed, I was struck most by the stories told to me by children who had experienced a U.S. drone strike firsthand. The impact of America’s drone war in the likes of Pakistan and Yemen will linger on, especially for the loved ones of the 178 children killed in those countries by U.S. drone strikes.

War Costs’ latest video brings attention to the children who have died as a result of drone strikes. The video names some of the children who perished in these strikes, and points out the obfuscation tactics of American officials who will not own up to the significant amount of civilian casualties that have occurred due to this legally- and morally-dubious policy.

 

In addition to the video, War Costs offers this report detailing the effects of drone strikes on children. The findings come mainly from the diligent investigative reporting of TBIJ and the groundbreaking reports on the impact of drone strikes by Stanford and New York University researchers (Living Under Drones: Death, Injury and Trauma to Civilians from US Drone Practices in Pakistan) and researchers at Columbia University (The Civilian Impact of Drones: Unexamined Costs, Unanswered Questions). 

In an effort to compel answers about why these innocent civilians have died without acknowledgement or explanation from the U.S. government, War Costs is calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to debate and pass Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s bill that calls for more transparency regarding U.S. drone strike policy.

Libya No-Fly Zone Will Result In Occupation

In Libya, News, NWO, World Revolution on March 10, 2011 at 11:48 PM

America has learned from the Tunisia and Egypt revolutions, and is making sure they take full advantage of the ongoing revolution in Libya. The MSM propaganda machine is working hard pushing for a no-fly zone, and at the same time the U.S. government is secretly making deals with Saudi Arabia to help arm Libyan rebel forces. And it’s not just America, Britain has also been caught trying to help the rebels, with news of SAS soldiers being detained after a midnight helicopter entrance into Libya. They have since been released.

This must be made clear, a no-fly zone would be considered an act of war, and would first require Libya’s air defense systems to be bombed/destroyed. Not only that, but look what has happened in Afghanistan and Iraq. It’s called “Humanitarian Imperialism.” A no-fly zone, no matter if it’s carried out by the U.S., U.K, or U.N., will result in nothing but another occupation.

Rep. Ron Paul spoke in Congress today, and expressed his stance on a Libyan no-fly zone. He said:

“It is my opinion that we should not. It would be foolish, it would have a downside, and we should think very, very carefully, before we go expanding the wars that we are already involved in.”

“We have to remember, a no-fly zone is an act of war.”

“There’s no Constitutional authority for a President to willy-nilly go and start placing no-fly zones over countries around the world.

He mentions the no-fly zone and sanctions imposed on Iraq, and it ending up in a war based on lies, saying, “We went to war when we shouldn’t have gone to war.”

He goes on to say:

“To expand this war now makes no sense whatsoever. It’s against International Law, it challenges the War Powers Resolution, and for that reason we should stop and think. Congress should act. I am preparing to introduce a resolution next week, so that the Executive Branch can’t do this without approval from the Congress. Why should we do this?”

“This is the kind of thing that has been going on for too long, and contributes significantly to our bankruptcy.”

He finishes by saying:

“If we want to do something for humanity, we need a new foreign policy. A foreign policy that isn’t based on Militarism, it’s built on more co-operation and more trade, and not picking our dictators.”

Let’s hope Dr. Paul’s words don’t go unheard, and America heads his advice to not intervene in the Libyan revolution, because once the U.S. is in a country, they don’t like to leave.
