U.S. politicians had initiated murders by drones throughout the world, against anyone angry about U.S. brutalities in their area. These attacks started in 2004 under President W. Bush (Jr.) after his series of lies preceded his ordered deadly invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, killing and maiming tens of thousands, were war crimes under international law, so the criminality from murders through the use of drones was a relatively minor matter, in their eyes. Calling them war crimes was Amnesty International.
Starting in 2004, U.S. politicians ordered hundreds of attacks in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen. Following the standard pattern, U.S. politicians first denied the extent of the murders by drones. At the time of this writing, there have been a reported one thousand people killed by drones, including over 200 children. The murders are carried out by CIA or military personnel sitting at monitors in the United States, including in Nevada.
Every murderous drone strike generate many more people justifiably angry at the United States, and wanting to kill Americans—in addition to the millions that had already reached that stage after the U.S. murderous attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq.
U.S. Using Drones to Kill Innocents—Even Children!
After the brutal killings of tens of thousands of Afghans and Iraqis, virtually everyone in the Middle East became a target to be killed at the whim of a drone operator safe in Nevada or other far-off location. U.S. politicians considered it proper to kill anyone, and then blow apart medical personnel coming to their rescue. www.wikileaksusa.org/collateral_damage. [soon]
Even U.S. citizens were targeted and killed. Naturally, there was never any trial or fact-finding commission to establish that the victims had committed any crime, or that anger toward the U.S. for its many crimes was justification to murder them. Obviously, innocent people not listed as targets were also repeatedly killed. U.S. personnel executing t he attacks even fired at and killed medical personnel coming to the aid of the wounded and screaming victims.
In addition to murder by drones being a crime, the murders violated the territorial integrity of the nations where the drones exploded. The Peshawar High Court in Pakistan ruled that the drone attacks were illegal, inhumane, and violated the UN charter on human rights, as well as constituting a war crime.
