Since Barack Obama took office, thousands of civilians have died as the innocent victims of US drone attacks in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia – well more more than half of these have been children. Are the lives of Arab children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, grandfathers, grandmothers…. expendable, not to be counted? Since the beginning of the use of weaponized drones in those countries that many more innocent people are dying than “suspected terrorists” – yet the attacks go on each week under the direction of the President, and the people continue to die.
