By Remote Control:
A Teach-In on Drones
June 22nd, 6:00pm, Mudrakers
Less than 10 years ago, our military had fewer than 100 “DRONES”, computer-operated killing machines.
Today our military has over 7000, responsible for the killing of 93% to 97% civilians during their attacks, and Obama has asked for an additional $150 MILLION in his recent War Supplemental to increase the number and technology of DRONES.
What are these killing machines? Where did they come from? How are they operated? Is American life so much more precious than any other life on this planet that it is acceptable for us to kill remotely, to kill without direct risk to American life, to utilize robots, drones, video-operated killing machines?
Find out everything you never wanted to know about the new and improved means with which our military is stamping out life in the name of our empire. And find out what we are going to do about it!*
