Well this was inevitable.

Meth-carrying drone crashes near US-Mexican border

Drones will do plenty worse than that my friends. It’s coming.

They are vulnerable to conventional attacks too, or even power problems, flooding, earthquake, tornado, meteor, truck bomb, aircraft crash, shoulder fired rocket, etc. They are in fact gigantic dirty bombs just waiting to go off while their critical cooling systems degrade on their own year by year.

​Game of drones: British nuclear power plants vulnerable to drone attacks

Some 16 British nuclear power plants are acutely vulnerable to drone attacks, a confidential report conducted by a leading nuclear expert reveals.

Wikileaks published a secret CIA study that makes a liar out of the drone program’s defenders (including Obama). CIA, in secret, sounds a lot like Robert Greenwald!

The 2009 CIA study lends support to critics of US drone strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen by warning that such operations “may increase support for the insurgents, particularly if these strikes enhance insurgent leaders’ lore, if non-combatants are killed in the attacks, if legitimate or semi-legitimate politicians aligned with the insurgents are targeted, or if the government is already seen as overly repressive or violent”.

Drone strikes counterproductive, says secret CIA report

Since 2004 drone strikes have killed 2,379 human beings. Of those thousands killed, only 12% could be positively identified as “militants”. Drone strike victims are overwhelmingly innocent civilians.

These innocents are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandmas, old, young, and they are NOT terrorists.

The US drone policy by all evidence is not making us safer. The opposite is happening: anti-American sentiment fuels terrorism.

A year ago for the first time drone survivor families from Pakistan came to the United States to testify before Congress. Conversations have since changed on Capitol Hill and more members of Congress are paying attention and asking the right questions. The number of US airstrikes in Pakistan has been declining in volume every year but there is still much more work to be done**. We need to continue to ramp up the public pressure against drone strikes.

Sign the petition to stop killing innocent civilians.

In Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars, the eighth full-length feature documentary from Brave New Foundation, director Robert Greenwald investigates the impact of U.S. drone strikes at home and abroad through more than 70 separate interviews, including a former American drone operator who shares what he has witnessed in his own words, Pakistani families mourning loved ones and seeking legal redress, investigative journalists pursuing the truth, and top military officials warning against blowback from the loss of innocent life.

Throughout Unmanned, Greenwald intersperses in-depth interviews with never-before-seen footage from the tribal regions in Pakistan to humanize those who have been impacted by our drone policy. This footage, alongside interviews with Pakistani drone survivors, describes the brutal reality of drone attacks ordered during the Obama Administration. The film highlights the stories of 16 year old Tariq Aziz, killed by a drone a mere week after he participated in a public conference in Islamabad in 2011, and a school teacher, Rafiq ur Rehman, grappling with the loss of his elderly mother and the hospitalization of his children due to a drone strike last year, showing how delicate life can be in this virtual war where no one is accepting responsibility for the casualties.

US Surveillance Flights A Step Toward Expanding War Into Syria

I remember discussing this absurdity with my wife a couple of years ago. They were helping the Syrian Jihadis, who had massacred thousands already. They are the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the rest of the NATO clowns. Probably Israel as well, but that might be trickier.

So they helped radical Jihadi terrorists inside Syria for three years.

The obvious endgame would be–to get what they really want–use the Jihadis they had helped as the cassus belli. Now they had to go fight the terrorism they created!

syrian2I doubted that could fly. It doesn’t pass the laugh test. It doesn’t align with the paradigms and myths even. It’s so flagrantly obvious, so ridiculous on its face, but here we are today. ISIS terrorists are sweeping across Asia, and now “we” can go bomb them, and ANYONE ELSE NEARBY “WE” DON’T LIKE.

As in the 1980 Afghan/Soviet Jihad, the US creates the monster, with a lot of money and a lot of help from its “friends.” Then it turns around, and screams: there are terrorists in the world!

Oh really? You mean the ones you were arming, training, funding and transporting around the region?  Oh yeah, them.

This sad formula assumes our population are drooling imbeciles.

Are they wrong?

ISIS was helped by US “partners,” and the US has aided their cause in Syria for years in the UN and with covert supplies, including weapons, and a training program in Jordan. The treasonous US puppet masters assume their Jihadi lieges are easily vanquished should the US decide to wage war on them. The Jihadis assume the US is so corrupt and stupid that it is helping the people who want to kill them.

 

USAID-JIHAD-XPRESS PROGRAM-halfsize

 

This goes beyond “policy” a banal word that masks reality. It is material support for terrorism. It is potentially treason. It is official US policy to help radical Jihadist “terrorists” in a bunch of nations today. Isn’t that supposed to be a problem?

Pentagon Funds New Data-Mining Tools to Track and Kill Activists

 

Last year, government documents revealed that Department of Homeland Security had customized its Predator B drones, built originally for foreign military operations, for domestic surveillance tasks and to “respond to emergency missions across the country,” including “identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones.”

These drones are now being used on U.S. soil by the FBI, Secret Service, Texas Rangers and some local police forces. The DHS had also proposed to arm its domestic fleet of border patrol drones with “non-lethal weapons designed to immobilize TOIs [targets of interest]” – an option also being pursued by local police agencies that want to arm drones with rubber bullets, tear gas and other riot control weapons.
