The United States of America, under the command of President Barrack Obama, is murdering innocent people, including women and children, in Pakistan on a daily basis.
As many as 80% of U.S. drone casualties are civilians according to Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik, and only an infinitesimally small number of victims are bad guys.
The latest US study claims that only 2 per cent of drone strike casualties in Pakistan are top militants. Estimates on the number of drone strike killings vary from about 2,500 to over 3,000 victims, as many as 174 of whom were children.
Researchers at Stanford and New York University say that the American drone strike policy in Pakistan has not helped Washington achieve its goal of curbing terrorism in the region.
The killing of innocents has actually resulted in the opposite: locals hate the US because of the unceasing fear that death may come from above at any moment.
Malik’s accusations are “a major blow” to US diplomacy in the Pakistan, declared Ahmed Quraishi from PakNationalists Forum. “The Americans have been trying very, very hard to convince Pakistanis the drone attacks are actually for the betterment of the country… but I think… this just totally destroys the position of the US from inside Pakistan.
There is no evidence the drone strikes have helped Pakistan cope with its militant problem, Quraishi continued, but the Pakistani military has historically been very successful in conducting anti-terror operations on its own soil.
Pakistani authorities have repeatedly demanded that Washington cease conducting drone strikes to no avail. They have also urged the US without success to share drone technology with Pakistan, saying Islamabad could put it to better use against terrorism.
Pakistan has no objection to using drones against militants, but that it is the method by which the strikes are made the country disagrees with.
So the Pakistani’s, who are much better suited to hunt down the terrorist militants themselves, have been rebuffed by the U.S. because the Americans want to do the killings. We just don’t care that the innocent civilians we are killing by the day have good reason to hate us.
The intentional killing of 80% innocent civilians in order to get 2% of the hard core bad guys is totally unacceptable by any moral standard.
This is just one of the reasons why so many people of the world hate Americans. They perceive the USA as a mass murderer of innocents.
