As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Being Antiwar,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“Believe in something.
Even if it means droning civilians.
✈ Just drone it”
My Commentary: “Eight years, zero scandals”… Hmmm… So, mass murdering innocent civilians, including children, isn’t a ” scandal”?
Obama-Led Drone Strikes Kill Innocents 90% of the Time in Afghanistan, in Just a Single Five-Month Campaign:
When combining the officially-acknowledged, yet incomplete, government-reported numbers of casualties from drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Afghanistan, the most modest possible totals show that between 616 – 1,258 civilians were killed, which includes between 186 – 241 children.
Get the Data: Drone Wars:
During Obama’s presidency, between 449 – 926 of the above-mentioned civilians casualties occurred (about 72.9% – 73.6% of the totals), which includes between 80 – 112 children (about 43 % – 46.5% of the totals). This is just more bipartisan criminality taking place in the ludicrous, endless “War on Terror.”
Oh, and this doesn’t even include US drone operations occurring in Iraq, Libya and Syria…
