Yemen Attacks 4 Oil Tankers And Saudi Oil Facilities With Drones - American Professor And Italian Citizen Killed By Drones - UNMANNED: America's Drone Assassination Wars; 90 Percent Of People Killed In Drone Strikes Are Not The Intended Targets, Signature Strike Movie

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CREATE A TERRORIST? CREATE A TOP SECRET METHOD OF ASSASSINATING FOREIGNERS YOU HATE, WITH NO ACCOUNTABILITY, NO JUDGE, NO JURY, NO PUBLIC TRANSPARENCY

What if every country chose to start flying drone assassination squadrons over other sovereign countries airspaces, without their permission or consent, and just started assassinating everyone that they thought was an 'enemy' of theirs? Other countries would start shooting and bombing US cities and towns, assassinating anyone that they thought was an enemy of theirs.. How would the US respond? Why is it ok for the US to do this illegal assassination CIA program, but not for anyone else? 

Trump Cancels Drone Strike Civilian Casualty Report: Does It Matter?
On March 6, without explanation, President Donald Trump revoked an Obama-era rule requiring an annual public report on U.S. drone strikes, including civilian casualties. This prompted worries: What are they trying to hide? Are they planning something big? Covering up a disaster? As The Atlantic’s Conor Friedersdorf put it, “Trump just gave himself more power to kill in secret.”

These fears are overblown. Not because criticisms of the drone campaign are unwarranted, but because the statistics the Obama administration generated weren’t especially believable. (Though the reporting requirement was in place last year, the Trump administration ignored it.) Obama’s official numbers systematically underestimated civilian casualties and did not disclose the location of strikes.

The drone program, which refers to extrajudicial strikes against suspected terrorists outside of war zones — i.e., Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, rather than Afghanistan, Iraq, or Syria — began under George W. Bush and accelerated under Barack Obama. When, in the last year of his presidency, Obama ordered the public disclosure of information on casualties resulting from strikes taken outside traditional war zones, it was the first time the United States officially acknowledged the extent of the drone campaign. But everyone already had a good idea.

IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME; YEMEN NOW USING DRONES LIKE BOMBERS, AND OTHER NATIONS HAVE NO DEFENSE AGAINST THIS

And so it starts.. Other foreign countries are starting to target 'enemy' people and infrastructure, just as the US is doing in their country. What is good for the goose, is also good for the gander. Tit for tat and all that. 

AfricaTruth Yemen’s Houthi Anasarullah movement announced Tuesday that it has targeted Saudi Arabia’s “vital installations” in a “big military operation” using drones.


Drones are becoming sophisticated and larger. Drone bombers are becoming capable of carrying more, bigger and deadlier weapons. When drones start carrying weapons big enough to take out ships and buildings like the Pentagon, things will change in the world? Why?  Because all of the standing armies and most powerful airforces in the world cannot cancel out or defeat these kinds of drones. And since the drones carry no insignia, pilots or ID marks, nothing can be traced back to the source. Drones are the perfect weapon..

Because the US has set the precedent of targeting anyone and anything in the name of 'fighting terrorism' or 'state security' now it is 'legal' for any nation to attack any other nation in it's soft underbelly. Drones can be used to take out critical infrastructure and nothing can be done about it, since no one even knows where the attack came from, especially nowadays, with the advent of 'stealth' drones, which cannot be seen on radar.

And so it begins.....

Saudi Arabia says its oil infrastructure attacked by drones
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia said drones attacked one of its oil pipelines as other assaults targeted energy infrastructure elsewhere in the kingdom on Tuesday, shortly after Yemen’s rebels claimed a coordinated drone attack on the Sunni power.

The assaults marked the latest incidents challenging Mideast security after the alleged sabotage of oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates earlier this week amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels, whom Saudi Arabia has been fighting against since March 2015, said they launched a series of drone attacks on the kingdom, across the border from Yemen.
via AP News Saudi Arabia says its oil infrastructure attacked by drones

And so it begins.....

This attack was not the first one.

GRAIL Yacht Protection Services Houthi Rebels Attack Saudi Tanker
Location: Red Sea, off coast of Yemen

A Saudi coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki stated that the Houthi armed militias conducted an unspecified attack on the tanker at 1330 hours Tuesday, and a coalition naval vessel intervened. The tanker suffered "a slight but ineffective hit" and continued on its northbound course with a naval escort. 

In a separate account, Houthi forces claimed that they had targeted a Saudi naval vessel in retaliation for a recent Saudi bombing raid on Hudaydah. In the past, the rebels have had modest success in attacking coalition military vessels with anti-ship missiles, improvised mines and remote-controlled bomb boats - notably the deadly strike on the Saudi frigate Al Madinah in January 2017."

NEARLY 90 PERCENT OF INDIVIDUALS KILLED BY AIRSTRIKES FROM DRONES WERE NOT THE INTENDED TARGET IN ONE GIVEN 5 MONTH PERIOD


"How many deaths will it takes 'til he knows that too many people have died?" Vietnam War-era protest songs have been running through my head this week, with the so-called war on terror back in the news. As the U.S. has relied more and more heavily on drones and airstrikes, not "boots on the ground," the war has faded out of sight and out of mind for too many people. Not anymore.

Drone Papers: This is horrifying -- "Nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets" in one five-month period. The startling details of these disclosures simply confirm the bleak truth which we always knew was occurring: that there is no precise and systematic way by which the administration is conducting these targeted killings – and that the administration is simply treating the entire world like a battlefield. Read the articles in The Intercept, then read FCNL's statement.

THE US CIA AND MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX FUNDS, SUPPLIES, TRAINS AND MEETS WITH TERRORIST GROUPS ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT THEN ASSASSINATES THEM IF THEY GET OUT OF LINE


The US funds, supports, trains and supplies terrorist groups all around the world, but then sends out assassination drones to 'take them out' if they don't do as the US orders them to do.

Two hostages held by Al Qaeda were killed during separate US drone strikes on terrorist compounds, the White House has revealed. American Warren Weinstein and Italian national Giovanni Lo Porto, who were being held by the militants, were killed during counter-terrorism operations in a border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan in January.

No judge, no jury, no trial... assassination via bomb. It seems the Constitution, Bill of Rights and everything America stands for has been tossed out the window. US citizens are just like foreign terrorists, no rights, no freedom; just kill me fast via memo.

Since 2004, drone strikes have killed an estimated 3341 people in Pakistan

Less than 2% of the victims are high-profile targets. The rest are civilians, children and alleged combatants …

- So my question is, if you are a pakistani wedding party and get blown up by a drone, do you feel better because it wasn't a suicide bomber, or can't you tell the difference?"

Highly anticipated full length documentary about the effects that the drone wars have had, focusing specifically on the 'collatoral damage', such as a 16 year old called Tariq, in the country of Pakistan. Approximately 300 children have been killed up to this point. Is it ok to kill innocent children?

Is this drone assassination program making us safer, or is it creating more terrorists at an accelerating pace, due to the anger and desire for revenge that it generates?

Is hunting humans that carry guns allowed in any country that drones operate in? What happens to anyone legally carrying a gun and hunting wild animals in the wilderness of countries where drones operate?


SIGNATURE STRIKE; FULL MOVIE AND ROUGH PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT


Unmanned: America's Drone Wars • FULL DOCUMENTARY FILM • BRAVE NEW FILMS
Video; https://youtu.be/mpzk7OdbjBw 1 hour

A drone kill authorization is as simple as a 'signature'. A signature drone 'strike' (notice there is no mention of killing, death or assassination?) means there is no confirmed ID that a target is a terrorist; they just fit a 'signature', so that is enough to assassinate them and anyone else nearby. One of the signatures is a person carrying a gun. Another signature is multiple people in a car, driving to the border of a country, or as in the case of Tarik, just driving around in a city. If you happen to accidentally be around anyone who is part of this 'signature' you can also be 'taken out'. 

25: in, a tribal leader meeting was held, called a jurga. A gathering of elected tribal leaders is much like the city council members or mayors in the USA coming together to resolve disputes or to create laws. The tribal leaders notified the local Pakistani military that they were holding a public government meeting, open to all. They would have tribal leaders attending, and they were going to meet during broad daylight. 

Four missiles from US drones hit this meeting. All of the 40 - 44 elders at that meeting were killed. The CIA and mass media labeled all these elected tribal leaders 'terrorists', claiming that because they were not holding a bake sale, this justified killing them all. 

30: in - One year later, a senior US government official, John Brennan, said that there has not been a single collateral death, and that all drone strike assassinations had killed only terrorists. Their definition of a terrorist was any male over the age of 14, up to the age of 60 that fits the 'signature'. No intelligence or proof of anything is required to assassinate anyone. 

31: The enemy body count in Vietnam was highly flawed, just as the drone strike body count is, and for the same reasons. How are we winning the war on terror, if when we kill one person, we create ten more terrorists? How is winning any war, much less the war on terror going to be accomplished by killing people who may even be neutral or our friends, who are trying to make a positive difference?

32: This killing of 40 elected tribal leaders led to a blowback against the US, in the whole nation of Pakistan. Huge public rallies against drones all across Pakistan resulted in a 'destabilization' of foreign relations, which made the US less safe. Those huge public rallies against the drone attacks then created public denouncements by government officials in Pakistan, against those attacks. 

33: The extreme suffering of the victims families surrounding the drone attack on 40 leaders led to a legal lawsuit being filed against the CIA and US government in Pakistani court. The Pakistani high court found that drone attacks are illegal and called it a war crime, on 11/04/2013. The court concluded that CIA officials are committing the offense of murder. No further drone strikes will be tolerated. 

34: At this point, we have the Supreme Court and government of a foreign country saying that drone strikes should be stopped, as they are illegal war crimes, and the notice of this was provided to the US government and the CIA, both in public via mass media announcements in the US, and via other communication channels. 

35: The ACLU filed lawsuits on behalf of three US citizens who were killed in US drone strikes. The public all around the world is growing weary of CIA and US government announcements that this practice of assassinating even US citizens from the air, with no trial, no jury, no evidence, is legal, necessary and justified. The public believes that drone strikes are illegal terrorist actions and they want them banned completely and absolutely. These drone strikes will lead us into a world of chaos and lawlessness. 

38: The drone strike operator realizes that he saw a child killed as a result of a drone strike on a 'high value target', and that the burden of that is on him personally. The CIA and US government calls this collatoral damage, but the drone strike operator sees it up close and personal. Despite being far away, watching through a telescopic lens as a child is torn apart by a bomb is something that only a cold, hardened, heartless person can continue to do with impunity. The drone operator started asking questions; Why was he there? Why was he doing this? 

As a religious person, he went to the chaplain, and was told this was 'God's plan'. He came to the conclusion that he was not part of anything good, wholesome, healthy or contributing to the greater good. He felt like he was destroying himself. He felt like he was taking a sledge hammer to who he thought he was as a person, and breaking that person down. 

40 to 47: describes the drone attack on a family where a mother was killed and eight children were wounded, plus one adult had his leg broken. The victims report that the drone strikes are usually one missile hits, and then other one hits five to ten minutes later, to kill those that come out to help, usually relatives and family members.  The CIA claimed terrorists were killed and no one else was wounded, but according to the family, there were no other victims, just a mother and children. 

50: The more terrorists we kill by drone strikes, the larger the terrorist groups seem to grow. 

51: In a bomb attack on New York City, a Pakistani said he did what he attempted due to the drone strikes, and the number of children killed by them, and the effect that the drone strikes had on families. Another suicide bomber killed himself and 7 CIA operatives, as revenge for the drone strikes, in 2009. 

52: Christians in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan are increasingly being targeted with bombs and attacks. The Taliban says that suicide bombers are no longer being trained, there are crowds of volunteers just waiting to go and do anything, including suicide bombs, in response to the drone attacks. 

There is a huge cash, jobs and profit motive behind the drone strikes. Every member of Congress wants contracts put out by the military for their district, and the Pentagon makes sure that these contracts are spread out all over the US, so everyone will support a larger and larger military budget each year.


US COMPANIES PROFITING HANDSOMELY FROM ASSASSINATION ROBOT DRONES UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA; A REPUBLICAN PRETENDING TO BE A DEMOCRAT



Boeing has received 1.8 Billion in contracts for drones so far. 

Northrup Grumman has received over 10 Billion. 

General Atomics has received 6.6 Billion

Raytheon has received 6oo million

52: There are now 50 countries using drones. If we can assassinate people that are viewed as 'threats' to our country, why can't they fly their drones over the US or even Israel, and 'strike' people who are threats to that country? Why can't other countries attack other countries, including the US? Why couldn't a drone carry a dirty radioactive bomb into a US city from a country that hates the US for drone bombing in their country, despite repeated demands and court orders to stop it? 

The US and Israel would not allow one single drone to fly over their country, under any circumstances.

53: The decisions made in the last few years will come back to haunt the US. Drones are an excuse to not think seriously about or have any meaningful debates around foreign policy issues and the use of violence, specifically assassinations. 

54; Advisor to Patreus says that they have seen community based programs have much more positive effect than drones do. What we need to do is demilitarize US foreign policy around terrorists. Terrorists are a minor law enforcement problem, to be handled by the courts, not a war and military bombing problem. The evidence is that the military is the worst solution in regards to terrorism, but Washington is full of lobbyists pushing violence and spending tons of money on weapons, bombing and drones, as well as other secret operations involving dark money. 

55: There is a better way to deal with terrorists, by drying up the swamp. It involves helping people, instead of killing people. If you get rid of the environment that creates terrorists, you get less or no terrorists. What are these solutions? A roof over their head, food to eat, clean water, schools, lifting them out poverty, giving them meaningful alternatives to terrorism, and a stopping of drone attacks. (Peace Corp types of things)

56: The US drone strikes and Pakistani military operations are pushing the tribal area residents over to the terrorist extremist point of view. The drone attacks have not succeeded.

57: Drone operator and victims speak. Drone operater says he wanted to do good, to make a positive difference, to be a hero. I swore an oath and I gave my word. The only thing in the world that is worth anything is your word. I had to get away as quickly as possible.

THE BEGINNING OF ROBOT KILLER DRONES BEING USED AGAINST AMERICANS ON US SOIL


rogerthat July 9, 2016 Due Process? A Drone Was Used To Blow Up A US Citizen Without Trial This Week

Jul 9, 2016
Submitted by Daniel McAdams via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

The Dallas shootings have ushered in a very new world for US citizens. For the very first time, drones have been used on US soil to kill Americans without trial or charges. …

The media and opinion-leaders are presenting us with a false choice: if we question the use of drones to kill Americans — even if we suspect they have done very bad things — we somehow do not care about the lives of police officers. That is not the case. It is perfectly possible to not want police officers to be killed in the line of duty but to wholeheartedly reject the idea of authorities using drones to remotely kill Americans before they are found guilty.

What if police had sent in a drone to take out Mark Hughes? What will happen in the future to a future Mark Hughes, falsely accused by police of being involved in a shooting? Will we come to accept murder without trial?"

IMAGINE YOUR CHILDREN GROWING UP UNDER DRONES ARMED WITH MACHINE GUNS AND BOMBS CIRCLING ABOVE




Source/credit Alternative World News Network

Other countries are developing drones too.

What happens when the drones start appearing above America too, armed with machine guns and missiles?

America is not the only country that can send drones overseas and assassinate people deemed to be 'terrorists' enemies of whatever particular state or country.

What happens when the drones start circling US cities and assassinating those deemed to be 'terrorists' inside America by whatever foreign country that also owns drones?

SUMMARY

It is clear that drone assassinations are having the opposite of the intended effect, to reduce the risk to the US by terrorists and terror attacks. The picture that comes to mind is a person hacking at the leaves of weeds. In response, the weeds produce even more flowers and many more seeds.

Instead of going to the root of the problem and dealing with the issue via law enforcement, community action and political means, the military has taken over and is applying a nuclear bomb to a problem that is not worthy of any weapons at all.

If a terrorist commits a crime, put him or her in jail, whether in a foreign country or here in the US.

Fear of terrorism is not excuse for assassinating people, including US citizens.
