Drones and the hypocrisy of only caring about “our” own victims

Drones and the hypocrisy of only caring about “our” own victims

By Dark Politricks

First off I would like to hope that you all had a good Christmas and I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog as much as I have enjoyed writing for it.

I hope you continue to read it in the future and tell your friends about it whether you agree with all the articles or not – remember this is a free speech site so I display articles from all spheres of the alternative news.

They might be right or left wing in your eyes but they are all stories that are under reported in the main stream media. Therefore it is important to spread such news so that people indoctrinated by the MSM can find out alternative sources of information and hopefully widen their perspective.

However not everyone will have celebrated a happy Christmas. Not after the recent massacre in America, the terrible wars around the Middle East we are helping to stir up and the people dying at the hands of our military industrial complex all over the globe.

After the Sandy Hook School Massacre America the rest of the western world, and probably much of the world we are not busy bombing and killing children in, cried for the victims if they heard about it in the news.

20 innocent children dead and 6 adults. What is not to be sad about there.

Now I am not looking at the causes of the massacre, the psychotic drugs, the availability of guns, the debate about  gun control or anything to do with the ease that someone can walk into a school and kill so many people – so quickly.

What I want to do is compare is the way we mourn and send out condolences and our best wishes to the victims of families in our own country to how we treat the child victims of our never ending war of terror i.e the US drone strikes that happen across the world on an almost daily basis.

From Pakistan to Yemen, from Somalia to Afghanistan the USA is killing 49 innocent people for every 1 “bad guy” with the use of their drones.

Because of the lack of mainstream media coverage, and the constant propaganda that these drone strikes are “surgical” and any civilian deaths are justified “collateral damage”, we don’t get to see the same close up personal tragedy and family stories of the victims as we do when it’s our own children being shot dead.

We don’t see the dead bodies involved in the drone strikes, the families grieving, the tears and all the outrage that must be felt by the victims families who had done nothing wrong except be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I spoke about the indoctrination we are all being fed the other day.

In my eyes there is no worse form of indoctrination than that which conditions the new generation of soldiers – the Predator drone fliers. Brought up on a diet of PlayStation games that make them see shooting dozens of people dead as “fun” and “playful”.

These game playing kids then go and work for the US military and sit behind screens in Las Vegas before killing people halfway across the world using similar controllers to the PlayStation’s that they are so used to.

Maybe there was some psychology doctor that helped design the controllers thinking that the sub-conscious link the flier had between the job and the games they were so used to would make it “easier” to kill real life pixels as opposed to fake ones. Maybe it helped them relate their job to the “fun” they had playing “shoot the bad guy” at home.

“We modeled the controller after the PlayStation because that’s what these eighteen-, nineteen-year-old Marines have been playing with pretty much all of their lives.” – Unnamed military robotics researcher (source: Wired for War)

When FOX News and all the rest of the war machine propaganda tells you that we “don’t kill kids” or that our drone strikes are very surgical and that we avoid the deaths of innocent people whenever possible they ARE LYING TO YOU!

This is an excerpt from a report about drone strikes that was reported by the German paper Der Spiegel and is mentioned in the video. It tells the story of how drone fliers in Las Vegas killed a child and when they started to question their actions they were told the victim was not a child but a dog – a two legged one at that. A conscience must be a hard thing to have working with drones.

A drone flier described a drone strike in the following words:

“Bryant and his coworkers sat in front of  14 computer monitors and four keyboards. When Byrant pressed a button in New Mexico, someone died on the other side of the world. He remembers once incident very clearly when a Predator drone was circling in a figure-eight pattern in the sky above Afghanistan …. with seven seconds left to  go, there was no-one to be seen on the ground. Bryant could still have diverted the missile at that point. Then it was down to three seconds. Bryant felt as if he had to count each individual pixel on the monitor. Suddenly a child walked around the corner, he says.

Second zero was the the moment in which Bryant’s digital world collided with the real one in a village between Baghlan and Mazar-e-Sharif. Byrant saw a flash on the screen: the explosion. Parts of the building collapsed. The child had disappeared. Bryant had a sick feeling in his stomach.

“Did we just kill a kid?” he asked the man sitting next to him.

“Yeah I guess that was a kid”, the pilot replied

“Was that a kid” they wrote in the chat window on the monitor,

Then someone they didn’t know answered, someone sitting in a military command center somewhere in the world who had observed the attack. “No that was a dog” the person wrote.

They reviewed the scene on a video. A dog on two legs?” – Der Spiegel

Watch this report by The Young Turks on the war we are fighting with drones.

However it doesn’t really matter in the US Defense Department’s eyes whether it was a kid or not as long as he was over 8 years old as they have classified any male over the age of 8 as an enemy combatant until proven otherwise.

That means they can kill 8 year old boys and say they were terrorists unless their family make it all the way to a US embassy or military headquarters to prove otherwise – not very likely is it. No wonder they say their strike rates are so accurate when kids are legitimate targets.

What also riles me about the drone strikes is the lack of real reporting on the ground. If there were actual real reporters doing their job rather than sucking off heads of departments then maybe the people at home might know what is being done in their name.

Instead all we hear is how great the drones are. We never get to see the bodies and the grieving families like we do after a US school massacre. However the kids ages are the same, the names may be different but they are still someone’s child.

One Yemeni reporter who tried reporting on the actual real nature of the casualties after a drone strike was sent to prison afterwards for trying to tell the truth.

When the new President came in there was hope he was going to be released as the public were outraged that he was imprisoned for telling the true story of how drone strikes ruin peoples lives.

What stopped him from being released?

A phone call from President Obama.

He told the Yemeni President, or more likely blackmailed him with increased aid budget dollars fresh of the printing presses, to keep him in prison as he was a “terrorist”.

He didn’t want real reports of the deaths and mayhem caused by the US’s war of terror being told to people.

No he preferred the propaganda and spin that everything was rosy and bright and the drone strikes shot sunbeams and flowers on the innocent whilst only killing those evil CIA linked al-Qaeda terrorists.

Yes that is your President America – someone who would rather a reporter who tries to tell the truth about your drone strike war rots in prison than have any real reporting of the casualties get out and be read by the American public.

And if you are sitting there thinking I don’t really care OR they are all Muslims and terrorists – it doesn’t matter if children and women get killed in the process. Then I ask you this:

Do you call yourself a Christian?

Did you just celebrate Christmas?

And if the answer is yes then ask yourself – would Jesus discriminate between the deaths of children in Pakistan or Yemen and those in America?

Are not all innocent deaths equally sad and tragic?

Would Jesus only be crying over the deaths in a US school or would he see all child murders the same?

Is God as hypocritical and biased as some in the US Government are?

And if you are not a Christian then just be aware that these amazing drones are coming home to you.

In fact they are already patrolling your skies!

How long will it be until police forces that are already planning to fly drones in the skies above your houses like those in Seattle or the Montgomery County Police Department who has just purchased a $300,000 Vanguard Shadowhawk drone with a grant provided by the Department of Homeland Security start to use deadly weapons on them instead of just cameras?

This Vanguard Shadowhawk drone has the capability to shoot tear gas and rubber bullets, as well as “taser projectiles.”  How long before it is fitted with automatic machine guns and other deadly weapons.

As the ACLU Website says:

U.S. law enforcement is greatly expanding its use of domestic drones for surveillance. Routine aerial surveillance would profoundly change the character of public life in America. Rules must be put in place to ensure that we can enjoy the benefits of this new technology without bringing us closer to a “surveillance society” in which our every move is monitored, tracked, recorded, and scrutinized by the government. Drone manufacturers are also considering offering police the option of arming these remote-controlled aircraft with (nonlethal for now) weapons like rubber bullets, Tasers, and tear gas.

And a recent article entitled the coming drone attack on America explains how the US Government has recently allowed for the expansion of drones after a massive lobbying effort by the military industrial complex to use this drone technology at home.  I wonder how many Congressmen they really do have in their pockets?

“In February of this year, Congress passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, with its provision to deploy fleets of drones domestically. Jennifer Lynch, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, notes that this followed a major lobbying effort, “a huge push by […] the defense sector” to promote the use of drones in American skies: 30,000 of them are expected to be in use by 2020, some as small as hummingbirds – meaning that you won’t necessarily see them, tracking your meeting with your fellow-activists, with your accountant or your congressman, or filming your cruising the bars or your assignation with your lover, as its video-gathering whirs.” – The coming drone attack on America

Therefore if you are dismissive of foreign drone attacks killing innocent people then what will you think when the LAPD or NYPD start killing, tasering or firing rubber bullets into crowds of protesters or kill the wrong person due to bad decision making.

With all the corporations and banks considering buying their own drones, who will know for sure that a drone that fired a lethal shot at an Occupy Wall St protester was owned by a police force or a bank just trying to rid it’s path protesters?

And if you don’t worry about the government spying on you as you are in the “nothing to hide, nothing to fear brigade” then just think how easy it is for a terrorist living down your street to build a drone out of a remote control helicopter or plane and add a basic payload system to it.

Don’t believe me – watch this video and be afraid, be very afraid!

Then ask yourself why you don’t care as much about all the innocent deaths across the world caused by the US military killing 8 year old “enemy combatants” as you do with school children killed by your brilliant health system and your 2nd amendment gun rights.

Is it because you are hypocritical or is it because you just don’t care about the drones coming back home to spy and attack US citizens?

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?

    Great Christmas article – make people think for once about “what would Jesus do”
    There is nothing worse than right wing religious pro-lifers eager to kill other people whether it e in death row or innocent collateral damage halfway across the world just because they have a funny sounding name.
    Have a happy Xmas all you hypocrites
