Blacks and women and are put on the side burner when it comes to this country’s so-called morality. Sad, but not shocking truth…. Not sure if mankind will fully ever be capable of an equal moral conduct.
Conflicting reports have emerged of the toll from Thursday’s drone strike on an Islamic school in Pakistan. Anonymous officials say the dead were five members of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network. But Pakistani opposition leader Imran Khan said the attack killed civilians, including children.
Imran Khan: “Four children have been killed. We will release their names. We will even get the pictures.”
Reporter: “But they were students?”
Imran Khan: “Students, we don’t know as yet. Four children have been killed, and two teachers have been killed in this. And there have been several people wounded badly. We want a clear — a clear pronouncement by the American government that there will not be any more drone attacks in Pakistan.”
Khan has vowed to block NATO supply routes until the U.S. pledges to halt drone attacks. The strike in the district of Hangu was believed to be the first outside of Pakistan’s tribal regions.
The sentencing hearing for Army whistleblower Bradley Manning begins today following his acquittal on the most serious charge he faced, aiding the enemy, but conviction on 20 other counts. On Tuesday, Manning was found guilty of violating the Espionage Act and other charges for leaking hundreds of thousands of government documents to WikiLeaks. In beating the “aiding the enemy” charge, Manning avoids an automatic life sentence, but he still faces a maximum of 136 years in prison on the remaining counts. The sentencing phase is expected to last at least a week, with more than 20 witnesses set to appear.
A Military judge found Bradley Manning guilty most of the 21 of the criminal counts, not guilty of the “Aiding the Enemy charge”. Who is Bradley Manning? He is a US Army intelligence analyst who released the COLLATERAL MURDER video which shows the killing of unarmed civilians & two Reuters journalists by a US Apache helicopter crew in Iraq. Manning also shared documents known as the Afghan War Diary, the Iraq War Logs, and series of embarrassing US diplomatic cables. These documents were published by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, and they have illuminated such issues as the true number and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq, along with a number of human rights abuses by U.S.-funded contractors and foreign militaries, and the role that spying and bribes play in international diplomacy. Given the war crimes exposed by these documents, PFC Bradley Manning should be given a medal of honor.
Remember, wars used to be televised on the news until the US did not want people to know the ugly truths of war & the atrocities that occurred by the hands of our beloved country. Torture, rape, death and lies are the duties of the US Army. Would you want your son or daughter to enlist in order to carry the crimes with punishment which should follow of our government? Any person who is able to kill an innocent life, torture of person (mentally & physically), and rape (men appointing their patriarch stance) should be punished upon the laws of humanitarianism (But of course, that is not the way of our country. An attempted façade only those who seek the truth may see thru)…. Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden are the heroes who jeopardized their lines for the sake of the public, so that we may know what our government throws a cloak over in order to carry out it’s corporate agenda.
Corporate agenda meaning a large number of our politicians were and are CEO’s of major US corporations who have bought their way into the judicial system. Our so-called Democratically system is funded by corporations who pay high dollar to lobbyists in order to have a seat in the most expensive chairs of government.
This country started off by murder & the enslavement peoples, it has continued to be a country fueled by elitism and the trampling of those denied entry to a better opportunity.
Don’t be fooled by the concealment via mass media.
