For those who are in denial, ask the families of people
who died in the wars of choice started by Obama or
the thousands who have died in illegal, extra-constitutional
drone strikes which violate US treaties and US civil law.
(an average of 50 innocent people are killed with each drone strike.)
“Unprovoked military aggression is a war crime
under international law. This is completely clear.
There are no ifs, ands or buts about it.”
In May 2012, the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal found the United States government including [former US President] George W. Bush, [former US Vice President] Richard B. Cheney, [former US Secretary of Defense] Donald H. Rumsfeld, and Alberto Gonzales; the attorney general, guilty of war crimes for conspiracy to violate the Geneva convention for condoning and allowing civilians to be held indefinitely at Guantanamo.
This judgment also applies to [US] President Barack Obama, who allows these crimes to continue and has refused to prosecute his predecessors. As long as Obama remains in office and is officially
engaged in war crimes, the US remains a lawless nation.
“In the name of fighting terrorism the U.S. has been carrying out a silent war of drone strikes in Pakistan, Qatar, and other Middle Eastern states, order death-strikes on what it say are “terrorists”. But recently released numbers reveal the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) warfare program, largely controlled by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, has a very low succes rate in terms of killing high-profile militants, while having large levels of civilian collateral damage with some strikes killing women and children.
In response four petitions by tribal leaders complaining that U.S. drone strikes were killing civilians, Chief Justice Dost Muhammad Khan and the junior judge on Pakistan two-judge Peshawar High Court panel decided that the drone were war crimes as they killed innocent civilians.”
