US drone attack in southwestern Somalia kills at least 22



A US assassination drone has pounded Somalia’s southwestern region of Gedo, killing at least 22 people in the attack, Press TV reports.

The attack was carried out on Friday when the unmanned aerial vehicle fired missiles at an area near Gedo’s Dhobley town.

Authorities say dozens of people have been wounded in the airstrike.

The US military uses remote-controlled drones in Somalia for reconnaissance operations and targeted killings.

It really makes me wonder if any of those people in the image above deserved to be subjected to the abject terror that was inflicted upon them simply because they were in an area which suspected "terrorists" inhabited.

2. Some people just don't grasp the logic.

Look: if we drop enough bombs on them, they will eventually realize that violence isn't the answer to anything. I can't make it any clearer than that.

3. I wonder how we would feel in the USA if another country

started using drones in our territory to kill our citizens because they suspected they were terrorists. Hmmmm.....

5. Look like some high expolsives were stored where the drone's missles hit.

I doubt that the people that the drone fired at were eating muffins and singing kumbaya. They were most likely plotting how to kill as many people as possible with bombs. Fuck them, they got what they deserved. May the party start for them in hell.

6. Do you think everyone living in that area was a terroist?

Do the innocent deserve to die for circumstances beyond their control? Posts like this make me sick.
