Drone strikes in Yemen
Nine young children killed: The full details of botched US raid in Yemen

(...) Intense surveillance was carried out for weeks, rehearsals took place in Djibouti, and Navy SEALS awaited the go-ahead from their commander-in-chief. It came just five days after President Donald Trump took office.

But as the elite team descended under the cover of darkness, what could have been the first major victory for the new administration in its renewed mission to defeat radical Islam quickly went dreadfully wrong.

As cover was blown, enemy fire returned and contingency plans failed, tragedy unfolded on all sides.

It is already known that 8-year-old Nawar al Awlaki, the daughter of al Qaeda propagandist Anwar al Awlaki was among those who died in the attack. But following a field investigation, the Bureau can today reveal that nine children under the age of 13 were killed and five were wounded in the raid in al Bayda province on January 29.

Details emerged piecemeal last week regarding civilian and military deaths, the disputed value of the targets and deficiencies in planning – some of the information coming from military sources in unprecedented briefings against its own administration. Insiders told CNN and NBC that the ultimate target was AQAP leader Qasim al Raymi. If the soldiers didn’t find him in the village they hoped they would find clues as to his location.

But despite the growing reports of failure – and despite the death of Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer William Owens and the destruction of a $70 million Osprey aircraft – Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer has continued to insist that the mission was a “successful operation by all standards.”

Evidence gathered by the Bureau must surely challenge that assessment. A fierce gunfight turned into an intense aerial bombardment, and the outcome “turned out to be as bad as one can imagine it being,” said former US ambassador to Yemen Stephen Seche. (...)

and a sad f'n follow up to the previous post...{#Sad}

Over 900 Children Killed in Afghanistan in 2016

Record Child Deaths Fueled by Airstrikes

15 years into the US-led occupation, the civilian death toll in Afghanistan continues to get worse, with the most recent UN Assistance Mission annual report showing 923 children, a record for the war, were killed in the last year, a 25% increase over the already large numbers in 2015.

Civilians have been getting killed at a staggering rate for years, ever-worsening figures driven by constant fighting in and around populated area, and what rights groups have repeatedly described as a lack of effort to avoid letting civilians get swept up in their endless war.

The U.S. military's stats on deadly airstrikes are wrong. 

Thousands have gone unreported...

h/t antiwar.com

The American military has failed to publicly disclose potentially thousands of lethal airstrikes conducted over several years in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, a Military Times investigation has revealed. The enormous data gap raises serious doubts about transparency in reported progress against the Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban, and calls into question the accuracy of other Defense Department disclosures documenting everything from costs to casualty counts.

In 2016 alone, U.S. combat aircraft conducted at least 456 airstrikes in Afghanistan that were not recorded as part of an open-source database maintained by the U.S. Air Force, information relied on by Congress, American allies, military analysts, academic researchers, the media and independent watchdog groups to assess each war's expense, manpower requirements and human toll. Those airstrikes were carried out by attack helicopters and armed drones operated by the U.S. Army, metrics quietly excluded from otherwise comprehensive monthly summaries, published online for years, detailing American military activity in all three theaters. 

Most alarming is the prospect this data has been incomplete since the war on terrorism began in October 2001. If that is the case, it would fundamentally undermine confidence in much of what the Pentagon has disclosed about its prosecution of these wars, prompt critics to call into question whether the military sought to mislead the American public, and cast doubt on the competency with which other vital data collection is being performed and publicized.

I don't think there are easy answers. I mean if you are a terrorist or freedom fighter or whatever, don't live with kids - but that's not even practical if you are living in occupied land (in your view of occupied, of course).

The hard answer is to work for peace and a world where everyone has security and a decent livelihood.

and there you have it

the unvarnished truth

the difference between the political leaders

brass tacks = even if you're peaceful and innocent, politicians, regardless of partisan hallucination, have a higher claim on your life, your liberty and your justly acquired property than you do

btw, your life is your property and taking that life is the worst possible human rights violation possible

how can we initiate violence/aggression today for the betterment of society?

is there such a thing as the initiation of virtuous violence? or moral murder?

‘Majority of terrorist attacks in US initiated by FBI, not terrorists


I have always said 2 of the most powerful terrorist organizations on the planet are the CIA and the FBI.

I think there are a lot of contradictions in the person. I think also that everyone wants to get something out of it. Donald Trump and Chris Christie want to go bomb someone, anyone, they don’t care where. Hillary Clinton and President Obama want to cancel the Second Amendment. Everyone wants to get something out of it. The media just wants a lot of people to watch the media. So, unfortunately these kinds of events are politicized. We won’t know the truth except we should probably understand that this was a deeply disturbed person and unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect society.
