How Obama’s drones stir growing hatred of America and fuel terrorism

Ron Paul: The drone war is illegal, why do you think people hate us?

Yemeni Farea Al-Muslimi explains how Obama’s drones generate hatred for America

“What radicals had previously failed to achieve in my village… one drone strike accomplished in an instant: There is now an intense anger and growing hatred of America.”

Very interesting video. The witness is clearly a friend of America and in general “pro-American”. He is just “telling it like it is”.

It is very costly for the U.S. to defend itself against the hatred that it generate. How long will the United States be able to afford the cost of the hatred that the drones generates? This issue has been discussed on the Ron Paul Forums.

Here is an excerpt:

Washington’s drone war has turned Yemenis against the US and sparked “intense anger and hatred,” which Al-Qaeda has exploited for recruitment, according to witness testimony at the Senate’s first public hearing about the legality of drone strikes.

Yemeni writer Farea Al-Muslimi has revealed the shock and hatred felt towards the US after a drone bombed his home, the village of Wessab: “The attack terrified thousands of simple, poor farmers,” Muslimi told the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights in its hearing titled ‘Drone Wars: The Constitutional and Counterterrorism Implications of Targeted Killing.’

“The drone strike and its impact tore my heart, much as the tragic bombings in Boston last week tore your hearts and also mine,” he added. “What radicals had previously failed to achieve in my village… one drone strike accomplished in an instant: There is now an intense anger and growing hatred of America.”

What is it going to take for the U.S. to wake up? The U.S. is generating hatred against America at a faster rate than America can pay to defend itself.
