Give 5 Billion $ more and carry on!!! 'fuking Pakistan' leadership. Say No To Aid


Th ey'll say no when (not if) the dollar collapses. The fiat currency is losing it's power, and once it is no longer the reserve currency of the world THEN we'll see the fruits of the U.S. government's warmongering.

The so called "Islamic fundamentalism" isn't born on drone attacks. What this "former high-rank official" is saying is that if the Washington regime halts the drone campaign on Yemen (or other countries), the rising of new "terrorists&quo t; will suddenly stop, just like that. However, they seem to forget that the anti-Washington regime feeling on the arab and muslim world goes deeper than that. It comes from poverty, exploitation of resources and populations an geo-strategical expansionism . To summarize, on imperialism.

All boils down to the same ole common denominater, money. Drones cost big bucks not to mention the human support teams that fly them, all in all costing us billions in taxes. And who makes out like bandits? Contractors in the DoD. Nothing new here. But thats why Cheney and his cronies sent us over there to begin with 12 years ago, money. Bush wasn't in the equation, he was and is brain dead.

The only problem with this situation is that the current mentality of the war hawks is, "We need more drones!" Eventually, when the global leadership tires of complaint's from its people, the drones that are stopped for overseas deployment come back to the U.S. and are deployed on the formerly free democratic society we had. Its a heated debate as we the people don't want them either! Nor do we the people condone nor desire ongoing superficial war's on terror that never end! Which was the reason we elected this administration to stop all of this.

I have been saying this for too long but people do not want to listen.

If you look at any attempts to squash assymetrical warfare in a foreign state, what you find is the outside force can never win through violence. The French captured or killed every 'rebel' in Algeria only to confront a mass uprising. The US tried to bomb the Vietnemese into submission and only created a populace which would not cooperate.

Drone warfare has no intention of stopping extremism worldwide; rather, it is a tool to foster chaos around the globe which keeps the hegomonic powers in place
