Drones: Obama’s Invisible War

In the midst of a crisis which has in recent weeks created a political chasm between Russia and the United States, there is an ongoing carnage in the name of combating terrorism against Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Somalia.

The story of the CIA-led killer drones which are killing women and children on a daily basis is a tale accorded inexcusably scant attention in media. Indeed it is being ignored.

Just recently, the US director of national intelligence James Clapper ordered US senators to remove a provision from a major intelligence bill that would require the president to publicize information about drone strikes and their victims.

The bill originally required the president to release a yearly report clarifying the total number of “combatants” and “noncombatant civilians” killed or injured by drone strikes in the previous year.

Reports clearly indicate the number of drone attacks on Muslim countries has increased tremendously since Barack Obama took office in 2009. Quite ironically, the man who was initially compared to Martin Luther King won the Nobel Peace Prize nine months later.

I for one always presumed that George W. Bush was a political retard who thought he was burdened with a messianic mission and that he felt he had to save the world. Quite naturally, the election of a colored president in the US engendered some false hope that there might appear tangible political upheavals in the country in its approach towards the world in general and toward the Muslim world in particular.

To the dismay of many, this dream was however shattered altogether to be ensued by an era of apocalyptic darkness and escalating mass murders in the international arena.

According to the New America Foundation, a Washington-based public-policy institute, Obama authorized 193 drone strikes in Pakistan alone from 2009 to 2011, that is, over four times the number of attacks that President George W. Bush authorized during his two terms.

To date, the liar-in-chief has only acknowledged that the United States has killed four Americans in drone strikes. According to The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, Obama has launched over 390 covert drone strikes in his first five years in office and thousands of civilians have been killed in the strikes.

The drone warfare is indeed a war in disguise, a form of war meant to lull American public who are manifestly fed up with their government’s military interventions on the one hand and to vindicate their gory policies through a mechanism of invisibility on the other.

Contrary to their claims that the drones are only used to wipe out the al-Qaida elements in different parts of the Muslim world, their strikes have however proven to kill civilians. Women and children are unfortunately among the routine victims of their ‘targeted’ assassinations.

For the US government, war has taken a new shape, ranging from cyberwar to drone strikes, from assassinations to other forms of covert operations.

It is agonizingly sad to see that certain governments including Pakistan and Yemen have been even collaborating with the CIA, providing them with the space for their inhumane intrusion.

A known victim of the assassination drones attacks is Pakistan which had long declined to admit that it had been aware of the attacks and that it had even helped the US government. In 2011, ex-Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf acknowledged that his government clandestinely signed off on US drone attacks. It was actually part of a deal by Washington to help retain the Pakistani strongman in power.

A cable sent in August 2008 and later posted online by Wikileaks, then-US Ambassador to Pakistan Anne Patterson mentioned a discussion about drones during a meeting that also involved Malik and then-Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.

“Malik suggested we hold off alleged Predator attacks until after the Bajaur operation,” Patterson wrote. “The PM brushed aside Rehman’s remarks and said, ‘I don’t care if they do it as long as they get the right people. We’ll protest in the National Assembly and then ignore it.’ ”

Yemen’s president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi has also confessed that he “personally approves every US drone strike in his country and described the remotely piloted aircraft as a technical marvel that has helped reverse al-Qaeda’s gains.”

Further to that, there are third-party governments which are aiding and abetting Washington in carrying out its massacre of the civilians in Africa by allowing them to use their military sites in the country. According to a report by the German Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, the Stuttgart-based supreme command of the United States Africa Command (US Africom) and the Air Operations Center (AOC) at the US air force base in Ramstein, in the state of Rhineland Palatinate, are directly involved in the drone attacks.

With a morbid mind, former US president George W. Bush, who was incapable of truth, commenced a series of invasions and military expeditions in the Muslim countries, caused inconceivable human losses and left a legacy of horror and bloodshed which came to be followed by his successor Barrack Obama. Then in order to keep up appearances and beguile the American public, Obama who was essentially expected to behave differently took the wars from the battlefields to the towns and exacted an irretrievable toll on the civilians under the banner of fighting terrorism.

By all standards, Obama is a brazen criminal and those who collude with him in perpetrating these acts of atrocity are no better. All of them are indeed under the watchful eyes of God and they shall meet their dismal reckoning.

As Noam Chomsky once said, “Wanton killing of innocent civilians is terrorism, not a war against terrorism.”

    Great article, check mine out and let me know if we’re on the same page. I find countless people don’t want to be woken~up because they’re either ‘in’ the matrix or are vermin who don’t want the humans they prey~on to wake up either.

    Good blog! You’ve obviously put a lot of time and effort into researching the NWO. I would just encourage you to expose the Jesuit Order more, considering they’re the ultimate leaders of the illuminati power structure. If you want to see several online photo albums that expose the fact that the Jesuits secretly rule the world, then I would strongly urge you to visit the following website and click on the link that says “photos.” Let’s just say, the pictures don’t lie… JESUITS.WEBS.COM

      Sorry, for some reason my last message didn’t post the web address that exposes the Jesuits. Here it is again. Remove the spaces. J E S U I T S . W E B S . C O M

      Note: If it still doesn’t show up, just click on my name “CJ.” I linked the address there.

  3. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing
    very good results. If you know of any please share. Thanks!

    America is depicted in prophecy as the “lamb like beast that speaks as a dragon”. In its infancy as a nation you see these lamb like characteristics, but after the signing of 14 th amendment in 1868 it has morphed into the dragon.

      The lines are being blurred until there is no more difference from one thing to the other i.e. people, faiths, sexuality, parent/child relationship, gender, etc. You should read “Land of Diminished Distinctions”.

  6. My brother suggested I might like this website.

    He was totally right. This post truly made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how
    much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

  7. I’m gone to tell my little brother, that he should also pay a quick visit this website
    on regular basis to take updated from newest information.

  8. Venho desejar um bom Natal e que não nos caia um drone em cima.

  9. Ainda sem nenhum drone na cabeça, desejo um feliz 2015.

    A New World Order is a necessity. The rule of law, not the jungle, shall prevail. Religious differences and faux geographical lines have been rendered totally useless by technology. Do not think of the NWO as a scary event, think of it as an orderly consolidation of inefficient systems into one system that can be actually be governed and wars adverted. This has been a dream 4 centuries in the making. It is happening. It is unavoidable. It will occur in your life time and when it is over, you will see that this is not about big cold government, but efficient government consolidating interests for the embitterment of humankind so we do not start a WWIII and eliminate our species over nationalism, race, religion, or other silly faux division lines. We are all the same and we can consolidate the many conflicting political, financial, legal, military interests, religious, social, and do so in a way that increases sustainable development, maintains our democratic and natural rights as human beings and most importantly, we will never have to point thousands of 1 megaton nuclear weapons at each other under the guise of MAD/domestic/international security. The cold-war brought about the final steps needed to start consolidating currencies, trade corridors, political and legal systems, and those that stand in the way of human progress will eventually see the light or they will decay as unnecessary stone age thinkers and eschew reason for selfish isolationist agendas (which are failing time and again in the 21st century). Welcome the sustainable development and global interconnectedness (aka the silly term New World Order). If you look at the collapsing American financial and system via unrestrained debt issuance, unending war, and Congress is ancillary to Executive Orders and America is governed not by collection but by what works as Americans sleep. This will happen quickly and most are and will missing how quickly it is happening. This is inevitable, necessary, and will help our species continue as a going concern. Look no further than Chicago collapsing or the idiocy behind out State and local leaders. Change must occur before it is too late and financial disaster eliminates our political and financial hegemony over our partners in the coming restricting of all global interests.

    Noam Chomsky. LOL. Is he still at MIT bantering about academic non-pragmatic solutions to problems he has no idea how to fix (i.e. the taxation of international business transactions or the concept of singularity of humanity with technology. He is an old stale irrelevant social commentator and he is definitely one the intellectuals that will have to go once the ball starts get rolling. BTW: The I bet you finally understand how deep this agenda really goes not. Do not fight it, it is for your best interest. Embrace it and help implement it: one way to help, support more trade agreements, empowering the UN so it has governing teeth over the US and the EU, and of course, the elimination of 501 tax status of ALL churches in the US. Lets close them all down and start with a new concept: religion is good, but zealots must be eliminated. 616-32-33-1776; It is coming!

    What we need is a Global Resource Committee team or something similar to designate and regulate the use of resources world wide to promote a healthy economy to starving nations and rich economies to have tax incentives to go green and provide high green tech to nations under threat of poverty and ones that are in it neck deep.

    The team will be randomly selected by the best scholars that have little to no ties in big corporation share holders so there won’t be risk of voting for money/bribes and union votes over riding the principals that started it.

    All too often government programs start off good but new people come in for the votes and not before long the original vision is long lost and that program is under name only while the actual practices are far removed or twisted beyond belief.

    Take our road infrastructure. It started off good but now is a giant cesspool of arguments that never go anywhere and bad pot holes from neglect.

    Here in Oregon half of I-5 have pot holes from 10+ years ago. It took 5 years to do a stretch from Roseburg to Sutherlin while in California *back when they had good economy* it would take Cal Trans only 6 months. Maybe a few months longer if unforseen difficulties happened but never more then a year to redo a long stretch of road. Even in rural areas.
