Stop Drone Warfare in Pakistan

The drone war the President is waging in North Waziristan isn't "precise" or "surgical" as he would have Americans believe. It kills hundreds of innocents, including children. And for thousands of more innocents who live in the targeted communities, the drone war makes their lives into a nightmare worthy of dystopian novels. People are always afraid. Women cower in their homes. Children are kept out of school. The stress they endure gives them psychiatric disorders. Men are driven crazy by an inability to sleep as drones buzz overhead 24 hours a day, a deadly strike possible at any moment. At worst, this policy creates more terrorists than it kills; at best, America is ruining the lives of thousands of innocent people and killing hundreds of innocents for a small increase in safety from terrorists. It is a cowardly, immoral, and illegal policy, deliberately cloaked in opportunistic secrecy. And Democrats who believe that it is the most moral of all responsible policy alternatives are as misinformed and blinded by partisanship as any conservative ideologue.  We as Americans are paying for this travesty with tax dollars that could be better spend on education, debt reduction, or ANYTHING else.  With the money in this nation being fought over like dry bones in a pen full of starving dogs, wasting money on something so morally and ethically ambiguous is nothing short of an outrage. STOP PUTTING CHILDREN'S BLOOD ON THE HANDS OF ALL AMERICANS.  NOW.
