It’s being sold as a cleaner way to wage war. But unmanned military drones are wreaking havoc in Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere. On this edition, we bring you voices from Pakistan of families destroyed by drone strikes. And we hear from Medea Benjamin and other activists who are working to build a global movement against this controversial military technology, which accelerated after 9/11.

Featuring:

Medea Benjamin, Code Pink founder; Sister Megan Rice, anti-nuclear activist; Pakistani drone attack survivors and their family members

  1. get over the drone shit…unless YOU are willing to put YOUR lives ON THE LINE TO GO AFTER TERRORISTS around the world. I’m no war lover…I am a vet…I hate violence…but I hate terrorism a whole lot more…I wish for and work for alternatives so that folks around the world will turn AWAY from the terrorists but the REALITY is that bad guys are out there…I NEVER find any of the folks blowing their wad about how BAD drones are out there risking THEIR lives for ANYONE…EVER!!!!!!!….I would love to see the Somalis working and having a great life…but you have to stop the terrorism AND provide alternatives….
