From The Guardian:

The director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s national security project talks about why the Obama administration’s drone assassinations are not just illegal in many cases, but are becoming increasingly risky for the US itself. She states that what the U.S. has been using as the grounds for its use of Drone attacks on persons on the “Kill List” will be used by other countries as the basis for them using Drones for their “Kill Lists”. If the U.S. believes it has the right, so will other countries. Then What? READ AND VIEW THE VIDEO HERE.

And from “The International Business Times, here’s an interactive list of countries with Drones, and also a list of which of those countries have “Armed Drones” READ AND VIEW THE COUNTRIES HERE.

We have let the cat out of the bag. What will the future look like? And sucking up all human correspondence in all countries, the U.S. is turning into a “watch all citizens and track them” state. Change we can believe in, yes Mr. President?

    WASHINGTON — Unmanned aircraft have proved their usefulness and reliability in the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq. Now the pressure’s on to allow them in the skies over the United States.

    The Federal Aviation Administration has been asked to issue flying rights for a range of pilotless planes to carry out civilian and law-enforcement functions but has been hesitant to act. Officials are worried that they might plow into airliners, cargo planes and corporate jets that zoom around at high altitudes, or helicopters and hot air balloons that fly as low as a few hundred feet off the ground.

    On top of that, these pilotless aircraft come in a variety of sizes. Some are as big as a small airliner, others the size of a backpack. The tiniest are small enough to fly through a house window.

Put 12 Drones over the Gulf of Mexico oil Rupture NOW. Let’s see the whales, dolphins, and other large fish swimming through the oil slicks. Show us, use the technology in a Positive Manner instead of using them as Assassination Drones.

Defense secretary Robert Gates Comments: “The Pentagon has requested an additional $33 billion to support the added financial costs of President Barack Obama’s new strategy for the war in Afghanistan, now the longest conflict in U.S. history. Gates told senators that if there is no passage of the funding by the July 4 congressional recess, “We will have to begin planning to curtail defense operations.” THAT’S RIGHT, NO MORE WAR FUNDING, TAKE ACTION:

ACTION: Call: 1-888-543-5234 (toll-free number established by FCNL) connects you with the Capitol Switchboard. Tell your Representatives, No More War Funding. End the Wars NOW.
