66
On Wednesday, the US Air Force launched a missile attack on the Pakistani tribal area of ​​North Waziristan. The attack killed 17 people, two were injured. The identity of the victims is still unknown. According to preliminary data, the militants of the Afghan terrorist group Haqqani Network are among the dead. Over the past month, this is the second UAV air raid in Pakistan.


US drone destroyed 17 man in Pakistan


The American drone fired four missiles at a building near the market town of Miranshah in North Waziristan.

New raid drone once again complicated the relationship between Washington and Islamabad. "The government of Pakistan constantly asserts that the attacks of drones are counterproductive, they lead to the death of civilians and violate human rights," the statement of the Pakistan Foreign Ministry quotes The Huffington Post.

In the period from June 5, when Navaz Sharif became the head of the Pakistani government, this is the second air strike on Waziristan using the UAV.

            Of course, it is very important for our citizens what happened there in Europe with the Morales plane. It is strange why this journalist is not discussing the topic of a clearly political order for Urlashov?
            Here a brave man spoke at the rally:
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfKVvd_lM9s
            and they quickly sewed a deal! and not in Europe, but here at home! But Misha Leontev is more concerned about the Morales plane - you can talk about him freely, but beware about Urlashev!

            That's what the forum users had to answer him? that Leont'ev did not catch the importance of Urlashov for a person under the nickname S_mirnov or that in general an article about something else is being discussed and expressed on the article ...
            or for example, a person with a nickname (took the closest with the pluses at the moment 22)

        According to the publication of the Long War Journal, which monitors the statistics on the use of drone UAVs, American flying robots attacked various targets located on the territory of Pakistan in 2008 - 35 times, in 2010 - 117 times, in 2011 - 64 times and 46 times during 2012 of the year. The vast majority of such operations are carried out by the CIA as part of a program to prevent potential terrorist attacks against American citizens. According to Ben Emmerson, the death of civilians during the use of shock UAVs can be equated with war crimes. According to the British Bureau of Journalistic Investigations, from June 2004 to September 2012 in Pakistan, up to 3325 people were killed as a result of UAV air strikes, of which up to 881 were civilians, including 176 children.

      I don’t understand another thing: Pakistan seems to be a serious country, nuclear weapons have a great army, India is constantly stepping on their heels ... so what they will not introduce a no-fly zone along the Afghan border? They would set up air defense and bring down everything that flies to them, and everything that shoots at their territory. I am sometimes amazed, because there are quite obvious and about simple solutions: Amer bomb, they are knocked down for all business for this. And if America will present something in such a way, you can always put on shoes in a nonsense like defend the airspace from terrorist attacks, and don’t know who shot down your landless vehicles.

I think the drones are still knocking down, but that no one has typically heard about this, and the silence of the Pentagon is the surest sign that the thing is being done.

      Pakistan, by the way, has air defense, and even the bomb is vigorous. But this "striped peacekeepers" does not stop. There is no political decision to protect their populations. If amers act so brazenly without fear of consequences, there seems to be a secret agreement with the Pakistani government.

      And then the latest news about the clashes and losses, there is no more strength to watch and listen ..

      Probably other people's children are not particularly sorry. The situation may change when everyone will serve there, but this is unlikely.

    "The Pakistani government constantly claims that drone attacks are counterproductive, bring civilian casualties and violate human rights."

    and don’t say so, these Pakistanis are already tired of their claims! well, you think, they’ve primaried a dozen other civilians, with whom it doesn’t happen ... but seriously, Pakistanis would have long taken the Amers as a tender one, otherwise they will only be indignant

    to the Islamists who take notice, h ... do you flurry your displeasure to show ... overthrow the legitimate government of the countries (the example of Syria, Libya) as prostitutes are laid out in front of the USA and the EU, hope for Uncle Sam to help him. Yes, they use you as a condom and then shoot them with Apache ...

    Somehow languidly Pakistan protests. Could react more seriously. After all, an attack on a country possessing nuclear weapons. But the leadership of the country does not seem to care. So well fed. By the way, such incidents inevitably strengthen anti-American sentiment in the country and strengthen the position of religious extremists. Legal language: grossly violated international law, violated air borders, the killing of residents without trial. Direct aggression. Only two countries in the world allow themselves this: the USA and Israel. Despite everything, Pakistan continues to be a geopolitical ally of the United States, which the West has become arming as opposed to gaining weight in the Indian region.
    Instead of indignation, the Pakistanis would throw air defense systems to the border and shoot down Amer radio-controlled toys. It’s even interesting what would happen next what .

    America is preparing its tough American marines for a potential meat grinder in Azerbaijan. As always, for the seed game, to get used to it, we will easily defeat and shoot everyone, we are America, we are marines, yeah.

      What kind of Americans are they? They took and cut off their comrade’s leg (it’s probably very cool), and our poor conscripts would simply get a jack and a mustache from the car ... What touches me is that there are graffiti everywhere, how many balonchiki and artists? literally on every corner. And yes, everyone walks absolutely soundlessly, especially over the enemy’s head. But there is no silver lining, they obviously do not underestimate us, however they are not the first.

    Yes, but if you kill a million - they will call you a hero; you kill one - a murderer! When will the Americans start wetting their toilets? Sheltered by the hawks think they won’t get it? All would have to get chestnuts from them with the wrong hands. And the packs on the eve of the withdrawal of amers are looking forward to getting a lot of loot, and they are silent.

    Based on Nicola Abé's killer article and Christopher Sultan's translation of “The Woes of an American Drone Operator” on Spigel on December 14, 2012. This is a story about an American soldier. As a child, he strove to become the best in the class, get higher education, and defend the country. He enlisted in the military, became a drone operator and killed dozens of people. But suddenly he realizes that he cannot go on like this. In the middle of the desert in New Mexico are elongated metal containers the size of a car trailer. They have no windows. Doors cannot be opened just like that, due to security concerns. Air conditioners always maintain an internal temperature of 17 degrees Celsius. Inside the containers, behind 14 monitors and 4 keyboards, there are constantly sitting operators - employees of the US Air Force. In one of these containers, Brandon Bryant has served for more than five years. When he pressed a key, people were dying on the other side of the planet. The buzz from the computer fans is constantly in the container. These computers are the drone’s brain, so the military calls the container a cabin, and the operators call pilots. But these operators do not fly, they just sit at the monitors, as if playing a flight simulator. Brandon Bryant was one of them. He cannot forget one shift in any way. The Predator drone cut eights in the hot Afghan sky, 10000 km from New Mexico. In the crosshairs of the electronic sight, a small clay house with a flat roof and a canopy shelter for goats were visible. After receiving the order, Brandon Bryant left-handedly pressed the key, fixing the sight on the roof of the house. His partner immediately pressed the joystick button, sending the drone a command to launch the Hellfire rocket. 16 seconds were left before the explosion. These seconds lasted forever, like a slowdown in a video game. Bryant could not take his eyes off the video from the infrared camera on the drone transmitted via satellite. Seven seconds passed - the rocket flew normally, not a single person was visible on the ground. Three seconds later, Bryant saw the yard of the doomed house, as if he looked out the window. Suddenly, he saw a child coming out from around the corner of the house. At that moment, Bryant seemed to be transported to that village between Baghlan and Mazar-e-Sharif. The flash on the monitor is an explosion. Dust, smoke and pieces of walls scatter in different directions. There was no child anywhere.

    I would like something else: for such drones to be in service with us ... Many people confuse drones with intelligent robots ... These are two different things. People press the button and this is the most important thing.

    UAVs are not funny .. They can be done by thousands of them and the air defense simply can’t cope .. (which are designed for serious purposes) Here is a signal interception and hacking control (when these things turn around and fly back to their administrators, bringing death and destruction to them ..) It would be funny here .. !!
