The secret impact of drone warfare

President Obama has been referred to as the drone president due to the number of drone strikes that have been executed abroad. This week, a report by Columbia University was released and sheds light on the secrecy of drone strikes and the affects of the communities that have been targeted. So what are the real consequences of this type of warfare? Naureen Shah with the Counter-terrorism and Human Rights Project reports their findings.

    Sheer coincidence. Besides, what kind of little boy goes to an anti drone meeting for grown ups?

    It doesnt add up c:

  2. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:08 am

    As for road raging and running people down, i’m saving it for the ows protesters.

    The one bit of ego i do have is towards them. I need in that store. They are in my way. It’s not my fault they cant grasp the concept of a two and a half ton truck with window rattling loudness coming towards them at full pelt isn’t likely to stop before it hits them :I

    But hey, you want to find and beat up people you disagree with on the internet. We’re both the same sort of violent :/

  3. melodylane57 on May 8, 2021 at 2:12 am

    those statistics are based on the american public and the propaganda they are fed. at least i hope.

  4. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:13 am

    Nothing you said has any merit beyond simple insults.

    The fact still remains you actually denied the US having the largest military force on the planet c:

    i want u to watch this video: media wars question more. abby martin is in the video.

  6. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:17 am

    So how bout dat Molycorp? And how they’re soon going to outpace china in rare earth metal sales? :3

  7. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:18 am

    Well, technically any soldier behind the controls of a drone is safe from harm. So it’s plenty capable of saving soldiers. For every drone downed it could be a man in a jet, or a man on the ground conducting recon :/.

    There’s already plenty of bans on weapons. Ye olde geneva convention and the numerous nuclear treaties to just name a few c:

    Heck, the future is actually moving towards frangible munitions and smart munitions, things that work to maim less and kill more :L

  8. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:19 am

    But i dont call myself that. I call myself Nicodemus c:

    And as for the rest of what you said, none of that has to do with the fact that they ’16 year old pakistani boy" story is suspicious :/

  9. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:20 am

    We should probably move to prevent this before drones are banned under some convention. They do save soldiers lives as much as they end them.

  10. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:22 am

    You sound mad that you denied infallible fact c:

  11. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:22 am

    Oh look, another person who thinks that JUST because china is the major producer of things that require rare metals that it means that they produce EVERYTHING that involves them. That’s totally why there’s plenty of places based here in the US that deal in rare earth metals c:

    And regardless of whatever lie you try to push, simple fact is that china doesn’t make anything for us for a military purpose. Hopes of that went away when obama pissed them the fuck off.

  12. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:23 am

    In the famous words of one McNealy brother: "Keep talking shit son, i’m reloading my gun".

    Come at me infantry puke. Unlike in the military where you were getting shot at with FMJ, i have +P federal hydroshocks. Enjoy your missing limbs n_n.

    And lol calling me childish and saying i run on ego? You’re the one who’s been all high and mighty saying "oh it’s not your way it’s my way, your way is dumb and you’re stupid, i’m right because i think i’m right". Hypocrite :L

  13. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:23 am

    But i dont hate RT. I hate their owners for bending over to the russian government :L

  14. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:25 am

    You certainly dont act like a military veteran c:
    Unless you have some proof of that, i’m inclined to believe you’re just a 15 year old who’s making shit up.

  15. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:29 am

    Also i like molycorp’s slogan.
    "Building tomorrow’s world, today!"
    It’s so fifties <3

  16. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:29 am

    It doesn’t matter whether or not you care, you still denied hard fact.

    You denied in-your-face fact. It kind of trumps whatever insults you try to lamely dish out c:

  17. WOLFY on May 8, 2021 at 2:32 am

    there is no honor in this….and those who participate in such behavior will pay with their souls

  18. Cadstar on May 8, 2021 at 2:32 am

    Exactly – the more controversial and important the topic the more paid shills flock to debunk or ridicule like moths to a flame. Don’t fall for them guys, they have sold their souls to the devil so to speak but hey – what goes around comes around. Have to correct u on one thing though. It’s not MSM it’s LSM (Lame Stream Media) lol. All the best.

  19. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:33 am

    But RT actively ignores other things, like basically every moment of unrest in china and russia. No the anti-putin rallies do not count.

    And while RT does cover things MSM doesn’t touch, they only cover them to gain popularity and put their anti-western spin on it :/

  20. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:33 am

    *sigh* whatever you have to tell yourself to feel like less of a liar son c:

  21. 98bigbutt on May 8, 2021 at 2:33 am

    US Imperialism caused 9/11.

  22. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:35 am

    There’s a difference between actual death and living in fear of it.
    So people living in terror doesn’t count for anything :/

  23. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:35 am

    Because 85% of drones think Libyan airspace is very ‘camp’ and not suitable for their shenanigains c:

  24. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:35 am

    Lol you’re still on about the ego? Even though you’re the military man who feels the need to troll others? You’re saying i have ego issues, and yet you’re the one displaying them c:

    As for the gun, you’re the one who’s threatening me. I have the right to defend myself in this awesome state. You can fuck off or eat licensed-to-conceal-carry lead.

    I dont need my firearm for making a point, especially to someone so blissfully ignorant as yourself. You probably would think it was a fake :L

  25. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Meh, terrorizing little chinese dudes is easy. Rip up their rice and tower over them >:3

  26. rddaos on May 8, 2021 at 2:38 am

    after 9/11, we have every right to take some revenge against islam

  27. rross27 on May 8, 2021 at 2:39 am

    (SEARCH) "U.S. Drone Kills 16-Year-Old Pakistani Boy Days After He Attends Anti-Drone Organizing Meeting". This is the future for protesters! Pakistanis met in Islamabad to discuss the impact of US drone strikes in their communities. One of the attendees was a boy named Tariq Aziz who had volunteered to learn photography & begin documenting drone strikes near his home. Within 72 hours of the meeting, Tariq Aziz (Age 16) himself was killed in a US drone strike, along with his 12-year-old cousin.

  28. alexgatillofull on May 8, 2021 at 2:40 am

    They forgot to say that ppl are in fear cause alot of the civilians are suffering "shell shock" cause they are bombing like crazy and there have been alot of mistakes but drones dont get fatigue cause there is no pilot on it so it stays circles for hours so they bomb a target and if someone or medical personal get there they bomp it again called double tap" that sounds like terror to me way to tell this people that u are the good guy and want them to have democracy and if u have an attitude to

  29. BadSushi1 on May 8, 2021 at 2:41 am

    Go America. Now you can conduct war and kill people from the comfort of your own home. May the revolution come before the New world order kills us all.

  30. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Well i can at least name one. Molycorp c:

    Also, rare earth mining is on the rise in the US due to discoveries of some shit called bastnasite, which is rich in rare earth metals. Enough so that china will lose their edge on the rare metals market in less than 10 years o.o

    Oh and if you dont count that, for the longest while the US was the top seller of that good ol magnetic-ey goodness known as Neodymium. We produce the magnets that the whole world uses 😀

  31. ClipsDOT TeeVee on May 8, 2021 at 2:45 am

    9/11 was an inside job.

  32. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:45 am

    *sigh* well i gave you a chance. Proof of your denial is in your inability to admit to the truth c:

  33. rross27 on May 8, 2021 at 2:47 am

    Martyrs simply don’t fit into the ‘nice’ box. They bleed all over it. The vision of people; blown-up, water-boarded, sexually abused, with eyes gouged out & their fingernails torn off is not ‘nice.’ In fact, their heroic sufferings & witness rip the mask of pretense right off the Gospel of Nice. It is said that if we do not stand for something, we will fall for anything. Every drone & torture technique giggled about now as we reserve the right to remain ignorant, will come to be used against us.

  34. abel2088 on May 8, 2021 at 2:47 am

    I wish this Nation would just stop middle eastern campaigns and let them all kill themselves.There will always be war in the middle east over race, religion and land. I say Isolationism! 

  35. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:48 am

    Only you did deny it, instead going off on a childish tangent about how "you dont care" and how that somehow alleviates you of your ignorant crimes c:

    Look, i’ll give you a chance. Without any extra BS added to it, admit that the US has the largest navy, air force and drone force in the world :/.

    If you cant admit to that much without drowning it in your "sauce de l’ignorance", then you will have truly never denied any such thing c:

  37. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:52 am

    Well you didn’t lie. You denied the truth. :L
    And proof of denial is in your inability to admit to the truth.

    And lol more insults. Desperate man 😛

  38. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:54 am

    "Look buddy boy. Humans cost money."

    What i dont understand is, how do the sheep not understand that? o.o

  39. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:54 am

    RT isn’t just funded by the russian government. They’re owned by the russian government, and they actively have to do whatever they’re told. They’ve already been caught catering exclusively to the kremlin’s opinion, nevermind their pro-putin standpoint.

    Who gives a fuck about Fox news ?

  40. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:56 am

    You do realise that we produce semiconductors here in the US, right?
    Heck, the radars and stuff are also made by american firms. :/

    You should do some research about where all the components for our things come from. You’ll find that absolutely nothing is made in china and that you cant make anything stick without using semantics to do so.

  41. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:58 am

    OSHI-

  42. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 2:58 am

    Spank russia like the naughty girl it is 😉

  43. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 3:00 am

    " I love you"
    Ah wub you too c:

    It doesn’t make you any less ignorant or at fault of denying hard fact.

  44. Danil Marks on May 8, 2021 at 3:00 am

    fuck Russia

  45. Daniel Celmer on May 8, 2021 at 3:01 am

    i was just trying to make a point. at least RT covers stories that the MSM wont touch. For instance, they covered the occupy bilderberg protest. no other news outlet did that.

  46. PRINCECOUNTYBEATS on May 8, 2021 at 3:03 am

    Bro I am so glad I subscribed to your comments, this one I had to say kudos to. Keep telling these fools whats good brother.

  47. damnright4 on May 8, 2021 at 3:03 am

    yup nukes are ok, even if Iran wants one..at least nukes gurantee mutually assured destruction,on both sides. So the only way to win is to not play..Blow back from these drone strikes will be paramount.. Its already starting..Its not about a stupid youtube video insulting their god…They are attacking our embassy’s and killing our ambassadors because of all these drone attacks.

  48. Quandary121 on May 8, 2021 at 3:04 am

    Gotcha

  49. Dragon Butt on May 8, 2021 at 3:06 am

    BUT it was never about the truth in the first place. It was about facts. Facts of which you denied. :/

    And lol i love how you’re so on about my ego that you cant even realise that your own is exploding out like a five year old with a soda.

    But whatever. Iggners gonna remain ignorant.

  50. rross27 on May 8, 2021 at 3:06 am

    I can’t take anyone seriously that calls themselves, PeePeeVag. Someone so fishy should be a little more slippery than to assume nobody would read over their asinine comments & cartoon channel to see who the "real" 15 yr old actually is. You’re insecure & uneducated rants are SPAM intended to annoy, as you do not seem to have the mental capacity for a constructive thought. If the only way you can make yourself feel good is by attempting to make others feel bad, this is known as a, "Sadist".
