drone w-obama background (1)

Mr President you had Hafiz Saheed Khan, the ISIS leader  in Pakistan and Afghanistan  killed last month by a US airstrike.  How many more extremist suicide bombers will attack European cities this coming year, in response to endless occupation and these continued brutal acts of airstrike/drone killing? And just equally brutal ISIS response! This is why we resist at Creech to stop Perpetual War!

We resist at Creech Air Force Base, the command center for the United States drone strikes in seven countries, to stop the illegal and brutal targeted killing operations by drones.We resist at Creech to commemorate the hundreds of children and thousands of others from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Syria, Libya, Iraq and elsewhere that have been murdered remotely by order of the President, the top military command of the Pentagon and the CIA. We resist at Creech to prevent future remote murder of children and women. We resist at Creech to stop the spread of a US lead arms race in drones.

A total of 78 countries now deploy surveillance drones. The United States and Britain fly U.S.-made armed MQ-1 Predators or MQ-9 Reapers, and Israel builds its own. But three newcomers — Nigeria, Pakistan and Iraq — all took advantage of China’s growing exports of the unmanned aircraft systems that are reshaping modern warfare. Some nations, including Russia and Iran, designed and built their own missile-firing drone fleets. Others, including India and Jordan, reportedly buy theirs from Israel. Now all the major forces in Syria’s civil war now use drones, Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces, Russia, Iran and Islamic State militants all have flown unmanned aircraft the size of large model planes to reconnoiter targets, while the U.S. and Britain have operated giant Reaper surveillance and killer drones. Somehow in the twisted logic of the military and the President the spread of drones is making the US safer.

Mr President the spread of drones is not making us safer it only spreading or widening the war.  Mr President drone strikes/airstrikes and the spread of drone cannot win the war or destroy ISIS, in fact ISIS has grown stronger as a result of drone strikes  and before to long they will have armed drones. The only way to win the war is to stop drone strikes that are killing women and children, destroying hospital, schools, infrastructure and destroying people’s lives and to start rebuilding people’s lives, hospital, schools.

All INVITED TO JOIN US SUN. NOV 6 to SUN. NOV. 13 DRONE RESISTANCE WEEK at CREECH TO BREAK THE SILENCE AND SPEAK OUT AGAINST ENDLESS VIOLENCE AND PETULANT WAR!
