Why do we put no value on certain innocent lives?
Are we not all human? This Pakistani girl, Nabila Rehman, stood before the U.S Congress to talk about witnessing the American drone strikes that killed her grandmother. Only 5 congressmen attended to hear what she had to say, and nothing changed. She’s come to fear clear blue skies because that’s when the U.S drones fly. That’s the definition of terror, but it doesn’t go away for these people. 90% of those killed in drone attacks are civilians because these drones target groups of people based on no real evidence, like phone signals that come from within big groups, like weddings. Weddings have been bombed to pieces in Yemen, Syria, and Pakistan, and we just sit back and call it collateral damage. Think about that for a minute, being bombed along side many relatives and friends on your fuckin’ wedding!! They sometimes drop another bomb on people coming to help the wounded in a “double tap” strike. Here’s a real life consequence of what happens when we see other lives as less valuable and assume we are the good people. We have truly become inhumane hypocrites, and have the audacity to give ourselves a pad on the back to assume by dropping bombs on other countries we are doing a good thing!
