Study: US drones terrorize Pakistani civilians, breed hostility

A new study has concluded that US unmanned aerial drone strikes are terrorizing Pakistani civilians, killing hundreds of innocent people and breeding anti-Americanism among the population.

The study, "Living Under Drones" (note: as of Tuesday morning, links to the study were not properly functioning), was commissioned by the London-based human rights group Reprieve and conducted by law professors from Stanford University and New York University. Researchers interviewed around 130 civilians living in northern Pakistan, where frequent US drones have taken a heavy toll on innocent civilians.

"Drones hover 24 hours a day over communities in northwest Pakistan, striking homes, vehicles and public spaces without warning," the study states. "Those living under drones have to face the constant worry that a deadly strike may be fired at any moment, and the knowledge that they are powerless to protect themselves."

US drones flying over US cities is bad enough,

so yeah, I couldn't even imagine how I'd feel if they were foreign drones. Although, the fact that domestically manufactured drones are flying around here makes it worse form a certain perspective, because it serves as a constant reminder that Americans let their country turn into what it has.
