In case the human soldiers ever wise up and reject Nazi like wars of aggression around the world, these machines have no such qualms about morality. There’s an imperial arrogance with the people manufacturing these weapons. As long as business is good, it doesn’t matter what we’re actually doing to the world. They’re so excited that it’s just like a video game, with the same controller and everything. How easy to invade and kill people when you have the better toys.
Seizing the opportunity both to flex its domestic drone capability and finish what the Nazis failed to accomplish on Omaha Beach, the NSA has turned its airborne lethality on WWII vets currently attempting a beachhead at various DC monument sites commemorating past and fading glories.
Agreeing to meet us in an underground parking lot in Georgetown, one NSA official explained, “Our black ops budgets are immune to the fiscal train-wreck in Washington. Since the Afghan poppy season produced a bumper crop this year, we decided to strafe war-hardened, patriotic octogenarians as a test of our in-country capabilities.”
Could this be true? What would Ike say?
Reached at a Beltway coffee shop, one off-the-clock VA official reluctantly offered this assessment while attacking an elaborate German strudel:
“The VA observes a ‘one fascism per lifetime’ policy. Thus any WWII veteran injured in the current skirmish will not be eligible for medical coverage and could well imperil his benefits. We could go broke if we don’t exclude civil insurrections.”
“But we are broke.”
“All the more reason.”
Of course these all-too-human bureaucratic obfuscations are largely academic, especially as the drones now self-police their own shoot-to-kill provisions. Speaking in a metallic voice devoid of human emotion, a spokesman for the Pentagon’s Drone Emergency Auxiliary Division (DEAD) offered this: “The glint of aluminum wheelchairs on memorial grounds will be met with the full force of our deterrent capability.” Pressed to elaborate on the source-code of these marching orders, the spokesman beeped before offering, “The glint of aluminum wheelchairs on memorial grounds will be met with the full force of our deterrent capability.” Then, without warning the spokesman locked it steely gaze on my aluminum tape recorder, prompting this reporter to seek higher ground.
Drones, it should be noted, are designed to be short on words and long on lethality, mistaken identity and plausible deniability.
Recalling an era when men put their blood on the line, 89-year-old Lt. (ret.) Rusty ‘Big Red One’ Everett reminisced, “Had I known we’d be defeating German Panzer divisions to make the world safe for Yankee drones, I might have rethought the whole equation. You could see the Nazis on the cliffs above us. In hindsight, it was strangely comforting.”
No one in Congress could be reached for comment. As a general rule, few in Congress are ever reached for combat. Not far from Lt. Everett’s wheelchair, the clanging weight-plates of the still-opened House and Senate gym pounded away like the guns of Navarone.
Robert Greenwald documents the war crimes of Obama et al. The murderer in chief has racked up at least 178 dead children with his mechanized killing fleet. Compare this child killing to his accusations against the Assad regime in Syria.
‘They fly in town, they get shot down,’ man says
On the Vice website, no less.
Finally some good news… maybe…
And it’s been decided — the future WILL have sexy skull caps.
My new White House petition, full text:
Federal Representative Surveillance Act of 2013
This act shall mandate that the offices of the President, the Vice-President, appointed Cabinet Level Secretaries, Senators and Representatives be wired with listening devices and live streamed to the Internet, so that the public may listen in and record the activities of these public servants. Further the email and web browsing activities of all federal executive and legislative public servants shall be made public on the Internet in real time. Further, surveillance drones equipped with listening devices and real time high definition camera systems shall be implemented where feasible to escort the aforementioned public servants and to monitor their activities as they pertain to the public interest.
Obama on the defensive: attempts to blame congress for Guantanamo, but Medea Benjamin calls him on it. He then makes a hollow stand for the rule of law, and Medea brings up the drone murders — causing her to be expelled from the auditorium. The drone issue inspires Obama to go for the bullshit about the resolve and resilience of the American poeple, yada, yada…
