The young never known U.S. NONVIOLENCE or the dead

Afghanis suffer
Children suffer
Generations suffer
U.S. carnage from air, land, sea must stop: protesting killers, naming the dead
Excerpt, editing by
Carolyn Bennett

Crimes against people and the peace

The U.S. War on Afghanistan now 12 years old ─ longer than the official American war on Vietnam ─ has gone on for half a generation, or more.
Protests USA

On Sunday October 6, 2001, former President George W. Bush announced the attack on Afghanistan.  Some perceived the action as revenge for 9/11; but that was only a pretext for action that U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Vice President Richard Cheney and “other neo-cons” had been planning for many years.  On the morning on 9/11, Rumsfeld said:

…it was time to ‘go massive.’ 

‘Sweep it all up. Things related and not.’

Protests Pakistan
Already torn by Soviet occupation, the destruction wreaked by the United States of America's going “massive” has left one of the poorest countries of the world suffering brutal civil war between war lords, deeply impoverished, further threatened by continuing U.S. domination, Islamic fundamentalism and the same warlords obscenely enriched by billions gushing from the U.S. treasury ─ handed over by U.S. Executive and Congressional branches of government.

Obama government
Unspeakable cruelty

The United States of America under the leadership of the Obama government has vastly increased the use of militarized drones and surveillance drones ─ especially against the peoples and lands of the Middle East, South Central Asia and Africa ─ as part of its expansion of “special operations” and “targeted (extrajudicial) killing”.

Across national borders and in violation of international law, “Reapers,” “Predators,” and “Golden Hawks”, all varieties of drones (UAVs, unmanned aerial vehicles), are the growing face of the U.S. “war on terror”; and these weapons have caused the deaths of thousands of people.

The Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare is therefore laying organizing grounds for a protest to occur within the United States on November 15 through 17, 2013

Protest at General Atomics in Washington, D.C., a major manufacturer of drones, Friday, November 15. Actions are called at other manufacturers around the country.

Drones Around the Globe: Proliferation and Resistance (Registration and Program) Washington D.C. the weekend of November 16-17, 2013.  Organized by CODEPINK, Institute for Policy Studies, The Nation Magazine, and National Lawyers Guild (Georgetown Chapter), coordinated actions will complement and support the gathering.

TBIJ’s “Naming the Dead

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has launched a dedicated website – www.namingthedead.org – which lists the known names of those reported killed by drones in Pakistan together with as much biographical information as can be gathered. At launch the site listed just over 550 names, collated from media reports, court documents and academic and NGO publications.

This represents little more than one in five of the 2,500 people that are reported to have been killed by drones in Pakistan. Of the named individuals, 295 are CIVILIANS, including 95 CHILDREN, while 255 are alleged militants. There are only two WOMEN identified.
