    This book is a very important read, specially in the context of ongoing election fever in US It is all but natural to romanticize about Barack Obama s presidency, when one is presented with an option between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton After all, Obama called for change, a change for law and order, a change for ensuring justice is done for all In his own words when he was a senator But what is avoidable is refusing to ever allow our legal system to correct these mistakes.For people This book is a very important read, specially in the context of ongoing election fever in US It is all but natural to romanticize about Barack Obama s presidency, when one i...

    While the term War on Terror has fallen out of use during the Obama Administration, the fact remains that we have found ourselves fighting a war against terrorists for well over ten years And any war is a dirty business, and people die in wars from ancient times to the present The Bible is filled with verses which direct the righteous to kill every man and woman, child and infant, cattle and sheep, camel and donkey, and all that belongs to them Untold thousands of non combatants died in t While the term War on Terror has fallen out of use during the Obama Administration, the fact remains that we have found ourselves fighting a war against terrorists for well over ten years And any war is a dirty business, and people die in wars from ancient times to the present The Bible is filled with verses which direct the righteous to kill every man and woman, child and infant, cattle and sheep, camel and donkey, and all that belongs to them Untold thousands of non combatants died in the indiscriminant fire bombing of Dres...

    The reliance on the use of drones has not only been presented as an effective alternative to boots on the ground but has become a major part of US counter terrorism policy Yet its indiscriminate use leading to many innocent bystanders being killed, its implementation which appears to be based on questionable intelligence as well as its application as a means of assassination should be raising many questions The Assassination Complex looks at how drone warfare and related technologies, used The reliance on the use of drones has not only been presented as an effective alternative to boots on the ground but has become a major part of US counter terrorism policy Yet its indiscriminate use leading to many innocent bysta...

    Over a period of four and a half months in 2012, US forces used drones and other aircraft to kill 155 people in northeastern Afghanistan Nineteen were jackpots The remaining 136 people were classified as EKIA Enemies Killed in Action The number of jackpots divided by the number of operations gives a 70 percent success rate, but it ignores well over a hundred other people killed along the way This means that almost 9 out of 10 people killed in these strikes were not the intended targets I Over a period of four and a half months in 2012, US forces used drones and other aircraft to kill 155 people in northeastern Afghanistan Nineteen were jackpots The remaining 136 people were classified as EKIA Enemies Killed in Action The number of jackpots divided by the number of operations gives a 70 percent success rate, but it ignores well over a hundred other people killed along the way This means that almost 9 out of 10 people killed in these strikes were not the intended targets I m going to do my best to summarize this as efficiently as possible I m not strictly, in theory, a pacifist If there is anyone who deserves to be killed in a military operation, it is the extremist with the aspiration to kill those with a different ideology than themselves However, The U.S drone program is a completely unacceptable, inhumane dare I say evil method for the disposal of terrorists The idea of drones is attractive One can conduct mission...

    I m not sure what needs to be said here If you ve been living in a cave one not hit by a drone strike or are too easily distracted by mindless pop pap like Pokemon Go, you have no excuse not being aware of the current assassination program entrenched in D.C., the complete erosion of habeas corpus and the right to a trial let alone a fair trial , the abject violation ...

    The book repeats itself many times, there are plenty of redundant information, i have really struggled to get to the end of it.Many sources are Anonymous and i am normally very skeptical because you can say that a source said something, but in fact you can say whatever you want Other sources have names, but no actual any results will show up if you google their names.There are many criticism towards the Obama administration, but none against the previous ones where the program actually starte The book repea...
