US Drone Strikes on Children

Cheers to Dennis Kucinich of Ohio for delving into the Obama administration’s use of drone strikes.

I just found out that America has killed 175 children over 8 years of these strikes, according to The Bureau of Investigative Journalism. So that means we murder a child approximately every 2 weeks. The standard attack is Hellfire missiles launched from Predator drones. I remember the outrage I felt recently when the Taliban shot a girl¬†who was just trying to go to school. I can’t believe I just sort of sit by passively while the American government, acting on my behalf, is out there slaughtering hundreds of children, and plenty of adults too. Rather than be complicit I’m going to write Obama and my Congressional Reps about it. If you’d like to do the same you can do so here:

  1. Contact President Obama
  2. Contact your Representative in the House
  3. Contact your Senators

  1. thanks Pierreville. I share the outrage. And I believe the number is higher than 175 as this estimate is based on accounts which had to have had some kind of effect on a journalist/reporter. I will pass along other figures if I come across them. (Not that anyone wants to hear of anything even higher)
