Peace Groups Blockade Creech Air Force Base to Protest 'Illegal and Inhumane Remote Killing' by US Drones

Death from above would be oh so Instant Karma if it came to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Thank you, Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, and all the others.

It was Vice President Biden who championed the US Drone Slaughter program.
Protests, such as these, are the only way to end this. When President Biden takes office, in a few months, there is absolutely no chance he will end this crime against humanity.

There is nobody actively attacking the continental U.S.
So why are we killing other human beings abroad?
Insane war crimes invoked over war profiteering.
If we don’t sound off loudly in some fashion, it’s not just our government to blame, it’s all of us. If we are attacked at home we have it coming in spades.

Because of the canard repeated ad nauseum: " if we do not stop then over there; we will have to stop them over here’!

It is insane to be creating enemies abroad.
I’m getting longer in the tooth but I still say bring most of our military home, let foreigners fight it out among themselves, and we could cut our bloated defense (offense) budget.

That is the whole problem! The defense budget is sacrosanct.

No one has EVER attacked the continental U.S. and no one ever will. We know 911 was orchestrated by the CIA/Mossad cabal. Generals who push the “adversaries” bullshit are trying to maintain trillion dollars budgets and fat salaries for’retired’military wonks.

Some people volunteer for the Empire’s war crimes machine primarily for the generous pay, health care, college subsidies, family subsidies, free training and other benefits. Others volunteer for all of that, and also because they like to kill.
ALL volunteers are complicit in the Empire’s war crimes.
The following fantastic true crime podcast highlights the brutality of our “brave heroes defending our freedoms.”

Why should anyone be fighting for any reason?

Not that the reasons are righteous or that anyone should fight wars.
Profit, greed, religion, border disputes, sovereignty, oil, minerals, ores, etc etc.
We would make up a reason if these others were not available.

You might “know” it but that doesn’t make it a fact in reality. Intelligence organisations don’t have the capability to do such a thing and governments, leaking like sieves, would have long ago made it public.

The Left as well as the Right tend to absolve soldiers at the bottom of the chain of command from moral responsibility. I’ve never believed that to be true, particularly in all-volunteer militaries such as the USA’s.
