"The Bush administration sent 44 drone strikes to Pakistan; the Obama administration sent over 300. The intended target is the Taliban, which has been hit, but the drones also have killed an appalling number of civilians. Between 500 and 900 civilians have been killed, over 1000 injured. The democratic government looks like a joke for legislating against drone strikes and having no power to do anything about them. And what is the stated purpose of drone strikes in Pakistan? Spreading democracy."

From the drug war to the war on terror, the United States is wreaking havoc around the globe.

Obama’s drone strikes involve CIA’s tactic of attacking rescuers, funerals and weddings. I once met a young man from one of the federally administrated tribal agencies (where the US drone strikes occur) and he said something (in Pashto) I’ll never forget: “No one cares if we’re killed today or tomorrow. No one.”

I have nothing else to add.
