Second Story: Hakeemullah Mehsud Is Alive

It is almost that everytime that a “high-value target” is killed by a U.S. Assassination Drone, the “target” shows up alive some days later. Is this announcement just a smokescreen to “smoke out” the “target”, to get him to show his head so he can be picked off, or is it done to cover up the innocent dead left behind? One of the results of using “spotters on the ground” to identify “high value targets” is that this is a way to get your enemies killed by the U.S. government. You point out the people that you have a big-time grudge and the U.S. blows them away with an Assassination Drone. Read the Hakeemullah Mehsud story here and view other Assasination Drone attack stories at The Long War Journal.

Third Story: And the War goes On.

More innocent civilians to be “displaced” during the battles to come: “NATO Eyes Massive Offensive in Northern Afghanistan Attack to Center Around Kunduz, Will Be Similar in Scale to Helmand” The U.S. and NATO will be conducting attacks across Afghanistan over the next year (and beyond?). What was the 179th poorest nation out of 180, will surely become 180th after these destructive attacks. What is the Human Price, and why are we not protecting the population? Just put yourself in their place, in a small village where you barely eek out a living, and you are forced to leave or die there. You move your family out of your village, but where do you go and what is there if you return later? You be the judge. Read: Army Capture of Swat Valley Town Leaves Trail of Destruction.
