Military Veterans Target US Drone Strikes in TV Ads

A group of military veterans is taking aim at U.S. drone strikes overseas with graphic TV ads directly asking Air Force pilots to stop flying the unmanned aircraft, calling the operations immoral and illegal.
The ads are the first commercials opposing U.S. drone operations ever shown on American TV, according to sponsors, which include the Veterans Democratic Club of Sacramento County and the Sacramento chapter of Veterans for Peace. The campaign is spearheaded by an activist website, KnowDrones.com.
The commercials are airing this month on Comcast in Northern California communities near Beale Air Force Base, which is home to Golden Hawk reconnaissance drones. Pilots at Beale remotely fly the spy drones over areas believed to be controlled by terrorists in foreign countries and pinpoint human targets for attack by armed Predator and Reaper drones.
The two 15-second spots show images from a drone operations video screen, an explosion and civilians searching through rubble after a drone attack. On-screen messages read "Drone killings violate law and morality" and "Drone pilots. Please refuse to fly. No one has to obey an immoral law."
One of the ads, which includes images of dead and mutilated children, is being run only after 10 p.m., while the other spot airs from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Both are posted on YouTube.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those Veterans who put this together, and pulled together the money to make this happen: GOD BLESS YOU!!

Extrajudicial assassinations run counter to everything this country is supposed to stand for. Having no due process whatsoever, just characterizing the alleged bad guy through Obama's "he needed killin" flawed logic, this country is no better than one run by a dictator who decides to kill at will, and doesn't mind all the non-combatants who will get killed, or maimed for life, in countries with no real medical care whatsoever.

We are supposed to be a nation of laws; unfortunately, under this President, we have become a nation of people, with the political hierarchy making decisions about who gets assassinated - or doesn't - with absolutely NO true law behind it.
