168 children killed in drone strikes in Pakistan since start of campaign

As many as 168 children have been killed in drone strikes in Pakistan during the past seven years as the CIA has intensified its secret programme against militants along the Afghan border.

In an extensive analysis of open-source documents, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that 2,292 people had been killed by US missiles, including as many as 775 civilians.

The strikes, which began under President George W Bush but have since accelerated during the presidency of Barack Obama, are hated in Pakistan, where families live in fear of the bright specks that appear to hover in the sky overhead.

In just a single attack on a madrassah in 2006 up to 69 children lost their lives.

 History repeats itself every generation. Allow me to draw the following picture, Back in the early 40's during the holocaust, here is a Nazi who spends his work day at the death camps murdering thousands of innocent men, women, childred and babies only to go home that night to sit down and have dinner with his family.

Today, here is a man who grew up in a generation of violent video games watching SWAT team movies who spends his work day behind a computer thousands of miles away killing and murdering innocent men, women, children and babies and when he is done for the day, he too goes home to sit down to have dinner with his family. The disconnect is frightening and as evil as it comes.

How much more sick, twisted, demented evil can one continue to justify?

The day is coming when we will all be held accountable, and sooner then we may think.
