US Predator strikes in Pakistan: Observations

From The Long War website.   These two writers tell the story of our Predator (unpersoned flying aircraft with missiles and bombs, flying at 50,000 feet, pin-pointing a target on the ground and wiping out the target and whomever else is around the target, and maybe the target was not there in the first place) attacks this year compared to last year.   Since 2004 the US has killed a High Value Target in only 17 out of 76 airstrikes (22%).  Some say the Predator is against the Geneva Convention due to its indiscriminate killing of unknown people on the ground.  That’s my personal viewpoint.  Under PAGES on the left, read the full story.
