C.I.A. Drones causing mental disease

The pharmaceutical companies are loving this. Imagine drones flying around your neighborhood shooting missiles at people. PTSD FOR SURE!! Apparently the identity of the murdered was not that important because the article cant provide it. The important thing is that people were killed. Any further questions and you will go on a no fly list.

MIRAMSHAH: Unmanned US spy aircraft carried out three more missile strikes in the North Waziristan Agency on Sunday, killing nine people. Some reports said that at least 13 militants were killed in SundayĆ­s drone attacks.

Tribal sources said the drones in the morning fired two missiles, striking a car carrying three people in Donga Madakhel village in Dattakhel Tehsil. They said the three men travelling in the car were killed in the attack and their bodies were mutilated beyond recognition.

In another attack, a drone fired two more missiles and hit a motorcycle in the same area, killing two people. In the third attack, a CIA-operated drone hit a car in Dindarga village near Gharyum area of Razmak Tehsil, killing four people.

The sources said in the first attack, the drone had fired two missiles at a moving car near North Waziristan’s boundary with South Waziristan. There were no details about the identity of those killed.

It was the 10th attack by the US drones in North Waziristan since the start of the year 2011. On the other hand, tribesmen continued their protest against the frequent missile attacks by the US drones in North Waziristan.

After Miramshah, which is the main town of North Waziristan and where hundreds of tribesmen had staged a protest on Friday, hundreds of people on Sunday held a huge rally in Mir Ali, the second biggest town of the restive tribal region.

The tribesmen kept their businesses closed and staged a protest on the main Mir Ali-Miramshah Road. They chanted slogans against US President Barack Obama and CIA officials and held them responsible for civilian deaths.

They condemned the drone attacks and killing of innocent people and asked the United Nations and major world powers to take note of the suffering of tribesmen in North Waziristan. The protesters complained that the drone attacks had been promoting militancy and violence in the tribal areas. They also said that a large number of tribesmen were suffering from different mental disorders due to the climate of fear created by the drone strikes.
