How US Drones Forge as Many Foes as They Kill

World View: The enhanced use of unmanned attack planes is at the heart of American foreign policy

By Patrick Cockburn

Contd.

From the White House's point of view, drones have the great advantage of being largely secret. Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger were once denounced as war criminals for waging a secret bombing campaign by B-52s on Cambodia. The official silence over today's drones can be justified by claiming that this is a covert war against al-Qa'ida waged by the CIA and the US Joint Special Operations Command, and requires secrecy to be effective.

Are the drones as effective as claimed? Air power has always over-sold itself as being cheap and deadly compared with ground forces. It was first used by the Italians in their colonial conquest of Libya in 1911. Britain's "Bomber" Harris, who led the RAF Bomber Command during its mass raids on Germany in the Second World War, cut his teeth devastating Kurdish villages in Iraq in the 1920s.

Air power can deliver much, but it cannot deliver everything. This is as true of drones as it is of B-52s. The drones make more political sense at home than military sense abroad. Whatever the accuracy of the missiles, targets must still be identified before they are destroyed, requiring good local information. Where the local state is weak or nonexistent, as in Yemen, Somalia, Libya or Waziristan in north-west Pakistan, this is easy to do because the CIA can have its own network of agents or co-operate with local intelligence agencies.

But there is something misleading and almost comical about a picture of al-Qa'ida as a tightly organised group along the lines of a miniature Pentagon. It is, on the contrary, much more a series of political and religious attitudes combined with willingness to wage holy war using certain tactics, notably suicide bombing.

Drones have other serious disadvantages. They create rage in the countries where they are used, such as Pakistan. If, as is evident, they are carried out with the connivance of Islamabad, this discredits the government as American proxies. Exact figures about civilian casualties are often mythical since outsiders do not know who is living in family compounds in Afghanistan or north-west Pakistan (witness the time it took for US intelligence to find Osama bin Laden in his Abbottabad compound).

Many places where drones are used are inaccessible to foreign or even local journalists. Civilian casualties can be minimised or denied. I reported in 2009 a US bombing raid on three villages in Farah province, south of Herat, which killed 147 people, according to locals. There were craters 30ft deep which a US spokesman cheerfully suggested had been made by Taliban fighters throwing grenades into houses. This was an obvious lie, but it was impossible for journalists to prove the opposite.

Of course, local people knew what had happened. They drove their tractors pulling trailers full of body parts to the provincial capital where government soldiers opened fire, killing three of them. I wondered at the time how many of the surviving young men of the three villages, and in the rest of Farah province, joined the Taliban because of that bombing raid.

Drones do not change very much on the ground. They do provide political camouflage at home and abroad, concealing the US retreat in Afghanistan and Iraq. They store up trouble because they may create more enemies than they eliminate. They rely on a network of informants that can only be established in weak, failed or failing states. They also invite other states such as China and Russia to invest in drones to kill their dissidents beyond their borders. Secret assassination campaigns by drones, hot-air balloons, bombs or rare poisons all carry the risk that somebody, somewhere is plotting their retaliation.

yes, many people get fascinated by such deeds....

They start cheering the winner without knowing the cause. People who analyzed that war, know that it was an "orchestrated win"

Instead of that, you should be supporting truth and justice and equity, irrespective of whichever side it lies.

Tomorrow when Isreal gets beaten, would you loose your support to it and cheering for the "New Winner"?

If you were reading accurately, you would see that the fire hydrant simile originated with Kenhunt. Israel will never lose to Muslims in any significant way. You will be shopping for a new deity.

. Of course there is no proof. It is just a matter of belief with nothing but words to substantiate it. Nothing wrong with that. All belief requires a leap of faith, by whatever believer.

Who can live in the world without faith? Have you proofs for every thing that you see in the world.

Would you "drink from a bottle that says Danger, Poison" ?

There are no proofs? Just your faith to guide you!!

Do not tell me that every bottle that has that able actually contains poison!!

If you do not have faith, you cannot survive even for a single day in this world.

That occurred well before Israel became a nation in 1948. The book of Daniel is a very important book of prophecy where god is teaching lessons to notonly Jews but the world as a whole. You'll notice that God had Daniel and his people evetually freed. Daniel was put in the room where ther were lions but the lions did not harm Daniel at all. Also, Daniel is a good source for you to see the prophesied final empire that is pitted against the Jews in Daniel.

Did you forget Herod at the time of Jesus birth ? Those were all lessons God was teaching the Jews because of their rebellion against . At least Israel is now a nation and they are there to stay in spite of you infidels.

I did not see that movie you are mentioning here. Ahmadinejad is nearing the end of his presidency and Israel still remains the Jewish homeland as it will forever and ever .....Amen.

“Israel hires Internet soldiers,” Israeli students and demobilized soldiers get paid to pretend they are just regular folks and leave pro-Israel comments online.

Israeli Foreign Ministry Deputy Elan Shturman is quoted from the Israeli Occupation Magazine saying,Quote:

“Our people will not say:‘Hello, I am from the hasbara department of the Israeli foreign ministry and I want to tell you the following.’

Nor will they necessarily identify themselves as Israelis,” he said.

“They will speak as net-surfers and as citizens, and will write responses that will look personal but will be based on a prepared list of messages that the foreign ministry developed.” CONTINUED
