What a bunch of bull some people try to feed us and have been fed by others. When I saw this I had to cringe.
The person who posted this titled it Peaceful Resistance Always. Of course she is a democrat and a supporter of Obama.
So what is the real story of Obama and Peaceful Resistance:
Obama embraced the US drone programme, overseeing more strikes in his first year than Bush carried out during his entire presidency. A total of 563 strikes, largely by drones, targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen during Obama’s two terms, compared to 57 strikes under Bush. Between 384 and 807 civilians were killed in those countries, according to reports logged by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
That figure does not include deaths in active battlefields including Afghanistan – where US air attacks have shot up since Obama withdrew the majority of his troops at the end of 2014. The country has since come under frequent US bombardment, in an unreported war that saw 1,337 weapons dropped last year alone – a 40% rise on 2015.
Afghan civilian casualties have been high, with the United Nations (UN) reporting at least 85 deaths in 2016. The Bureau recorded 65 to 105 civilian deaths during this period. We did not start collecting data on Afghanistan until 2015.
|Total people reported killed||11-12||147-203||204-292||1389-1597|
|Civilians reported killed||1||0||3-5||65-101|
Notes on the data: The Bureau is not logging strikes in active battlefields except Afghanistan; strikes in Syria, Iraq and Libya are not included in this data. To see data for those countries, visit Airwars.org.
This is what Peaceful Resistance gets you.
and this bullshit is overwhelming we only need one photo even if there are many more: The Obama administration has insisted that drone strikes are so “exceptionally surgical and precise” that they pluck off terror suspects while not putting “innocent men, women and children in danger”.
and really folks. Did the Nobel committee lose their minds?
According to St. Pete for Peace here is a run down of peaceful resistance: (more…)
