168 Pakistani Children Killed in US Drone Attacks

This was the February 13, 2013 news headline the day after the President of the U.S.’s State of the Union address... ”Five Afghan Children Among Ten Civilians Killed in NATO/US Drone Attack”  ”Four women and five children were killed, and five children wounded.” LINK

Pakistan – till date 168 children killed in drone attacks – Telegraph.co.uk LINK

Afghanistan – till date still counting….

Obama has authorized 193 drone strikes in Pakistan – four times the amount authorized by George W. Bush. According to Global Research, over the past 4 years Obama has authorized attacks in Pakistan which have killed more than 800 innocent civilians and just 22 Al-Qaeda officers.

That constitutes at least 36 civilians per target. LINK

And what has been acheived after spending billions of dollars?

Taliban is very much alive and kicking. Manifold increase in heroine production. And a lethal hatred towards the USA.

There is more, lots more but then who is listening…who really wants to know…who really cares for these innocent children who are Not our children!

America’s secret drone program, continually lowering the bar for lethal action, turns the president, the CIA director and counter-terrorism advisers into a star chamber running a war beyond war zones that employs a scalpel rather than a hammer, as the new Langley chief, John Brennan, puts it.

But as The Times’ Mark Mazzetti notes in his new book, “The Way of the Knife,” “the analogy suggests that this new kind of war is without costs or blunders – a surgery without complications. This isn’t the case.”

Mazzetti raises the issue of whether the CIA – which once sold golf shirts with Predator logos in its gift shop – became “so enamored of its killer drones that it wasn’t pushing its analysts to ask a basic question: To what extent might the drone strikes be creating more terrorists than they are actually killing?”

Mazzetti writes that Sir Richard Dearlove, the head of M16, the British Secret Intelligence Service, watched one of the first drone strikes via satellite at Langley a few weeks after 9/11. As he saw a Mitsubishi truck in Afghanistan being blown up, Dearlove smiled wryly. 

“It almost isn’t sporting, is it?” the Brit asked.
