Petitioning U.S Defense Secretary Leon E Panetta and 2 others


The continued use of unmanned drones to carry out missile attacks against suspected terrorists is a clear violation of international law and directly violates the sovereignty of these nations.

Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia.....
The U.S. is not at war with these countries, yet conducts air strikes in its territory on a near daily basis. Individuals are targeted for killing without any due process of law or attempts to detain.

WIth every strike made estimates are that 50 innocent civilians are also either killed or injured, including women and children. I say estimates, as to date there has been no transparency from the U.S government on exact figures. In fact all real data and details of Drone operations are classified as top secret, and your administration officials have refused to make public even the much-disputed legal opinions underpinning it.....

I wonder how the U.S government would feel if situations were reversed and every few days 50 innocent American citizens were killed by un-authorised drone strikes from a foreign power...?
My guess is it would be considered an act of war....

The simple truth is that through this 'counter-terrorism' strategy you are only fuelling and creating future terrorists....
Hatred for the U.S rises with every innocent child blown to pieces by this heinous and indiscriminate act of government terrorism.
It is tantamount to mass murder, plain and simple....

This program should be immediately STOPPED, and apologies made to the families whose lives have been ripped apart by your actions...
