"(CNN) -- U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan have killed far more people than the United States has acknowledged, have traumatized innocent residents and largely been ineffective, according to a new study released Tuesday.
The study by Stanford Law School and New York University's School of Law calls for a re-evaluation of the practice, saying the number of "high-level" targets killed as a percentage of total casualties is extremely low -- about 2%."

The Amnesty link shows a girl who looks like Malala, the child shot in the head for being a girl and wishing to go to school.

Children, their teachers and ordinary Muslim people are being killed in horrifying numbers by the people who the drones target.
The numbers killed by drones are trivial in comparison.

Neither Stamford nor any other Westerners can go to the tribal lands and find the truth about who the drones kill.
It is in the interest of the Taleban, who control those areas absolutely, to exaggerate civilian casualties and conceal activist deaths.

So what have we got so far
Attacks on civilian areas that are killing non-combatants (good o' 'collateral damage').
The US refusing to reveal figures on what those casualties are and suppressing attempts to debate the issue in Congress.
Surveys showing that, rather than controlling terrorism, these attacks are escalating it.
The same reports are pointing out that the attacks are almost certainly a breach of both international laws and those on human rights abuses - in fact, acts of terrorism themselves.
World-wide condemnation of the attacks by human rights groups and war crimes observers, including Amnesty International - Britain appears to be the only Nation actively supporting them by providing information on the targets of the attacks - colluding in what appears to be a war crime (as Guest.# points out - back to the balmy days of WMD).
As well as this, there is a growing 'Drone' manufacturing industry, straining at the leash and complaining that it is not been given enough support to allow it to reach its full potential.
When it does, we can look forward to Drone sales to whoever has the wherewithal, so if that nice Mr Assad can hold out for long enough, perhaps he might be able to get his hands on some and bring 'normality' back to Syria - that nice Mr Cable has already told us that the arms industry isn't particularly fussy about who the British armourers sell weapons to.
If all this wasn't enough - the Drone attacks have Keith's blessing - what more can we possibly need to help us identify an atrocity?

Messages recovered from Osama bin Laden's home after his death in 2011, including one from then al Qaeda No. 3, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman reportedly, according to the Agence France-Presse and the Washington Post, expressed frustration with the drone strikes in Pakistan. According to an unnamed U.S. Government official, in his message al-Rahman complained that drone-launched missiles were killing al Qaeda operatives faster than they could be replaced.

I don't want to see innocent civilians being slaughtered by of ineffectual and illegal terrorist 'counter-terrorism (sic)'
Jim Carroll

Also from my link

Five. Retired high-ranking military and CIA veterans challenge the legality and efficacy of drone killings
Retired US Army Colonel Ann Wright squarely denies the legality of drone warfare, telling Democracy Now: "These drones, you might as well just call them assassination machines. That is what these drones are used for: targeted assassination, extrajudicial ultimate death for people who have not been convicted of anything."
Drone strikes are also counterproductive. Robert Grenier, recently retired Director of the CIA Counter-Terrorism Center, wrote, "One wonders how many Yemenis may be moved in the future to violent extremism in reaction to carelessly targeted missile strikes, and how many Yemeni militants with strictly local agendas will become dedicated enemies of the West in response to US military actions against them."
Recent polls of the Pakistan people show high levels of anger in Pakistan at US military attacks there. This anger in turn leads to high support for suicide attacks against US military targets.

And the European Union is made up of what exactly - boy scout groups?
The Governments refuse to give the facts - it is not in their interests to do so.
The U.S. has actively suppressed discussion on the facts - it is in their interests to do so.
A British Government lied and breached international law in order to support the U.S. - it was in their interests to do so.
Nothing has changed since the illegal invasion of Iraq.
Reports from around the world - U.S. Canada, the Arab States, Britain, Australia, Ireland...... all condemning the Drone attacks as illegal - and producing researched documentation to prove they are
The landslide victory in the European Union make it official that Europe condemns the use of Drones - how many countries is that?
"It is a distraction to obscure the real issue facing the world right now."
The drones are not a distraction - they are a major part of the problem; they increase terrorism - researched; they alienate otherwise friendly Arab States - researched; they slaughter innocent civilians in their thousands - researched (as far as the U.S. will allow the figures to be made public)
Here we are again Keith versus humanity in his support of US atrocities and the poodles who appease them.

Extracts from Jim's Yemen link.
"Drone strikes are never the solution. It is a tactical band-aid but it can be quite an important one if you don't want to see planes dropping from the sky in the West," said Magnus Ranstorp, a terrorism expert at the Swedish National Defence College.

The drones' main success has been to severely limit AQAP's movements and ability to hold territory as it did back in 2011.

"When they move from A to B, they have to think 100 times. They've lost their freedom," said Mustafa Alani, a security analyst with close ties to the Saudi Interior Ministry.


Yemen's interior ministry said 55 militants were killed on Sunday alone, which would make it the biggest strike against al Qaeda militants since at least 2012.

It said three of those killed were leading members of al Qaeda. Yemen said 10 al Qaeda militants were killed in Saturday's attack.

A senior security source said investigations were being carried out into the identities of those killed, but confirmed that "leaders in the organization" had died.

Rumors have been swirling that those killed include AQAP leader Nasir al-Wuhayshi and Saudi bombmaker Ibrahim al-Asiri, especially after several eyewitness reports emerged that at least one helicopter had landed after a late Sunday night strike in the restive southern Shabwa province.

Tribal sources told Reuters on Sunday that five suspected militants were killed in that attack.

I am sure there are individuals and groups on both sides of the argument, so your statement was wrong.

Meanwhile the massive industrial scale slaughter of Muslims by Muslims goes on unabated such that the effects of all the drones in the world pale into insignificance in comparison.
Indeed, there is no comparison.

The Stanford report bears out that not only are the civilian casualties significant but the bombing is having the effect of escalating terrorism.
The "Governments" are in hock to the U.S., and if they weren't - there' is always the veto to fall back on.
F*** the Governments - they are all a bunch of self-serving shysters when it comes down to it.

Yes, drones do kill innocent civilians. So do terrorists, many times over. Neither are right and justifying one with the other is a ludicrous argument. However, given the choice of targeted bombing and indiscriminate bombing I think the former is the lesser of two evils. Neither should exist but, sadly, they do. Until people learn to live with each other they always will. And I think there are prime examples of people who cannot live with each other on here!

There are many Mudcat members who see nothing wrong with the use of drones by police and other such authorities. Their reasoning is that if you have nothing to hide then why worry. They frequently use the term tinfoil hat.

As for which governments have condemned or voiced reservations about the use of drones to kill people, a quick Google found the following:

'EU Parliament proposes a ban refers drone strikes as "unlawful."

Strasbourg - European Union Members of Parliament condemned the use of drones in targeted killings in a vote of 534 to 49. The vote proposing a ban referred to the drone strikes as "unlawful."'

And address the rest of the posting with the research and the reported results of the attacks on people who are otherwise supportive of fighting terrorism - not to mention those U.S citizens who have condemned the actions
And the US governments efforts to hide casualty figures by quashing debate on it.
If   If you take your nose out of the arses of the Governments of the world - all who have economic and financial interests in keeping on the right side of America, you would realise the wave of opposition to U.S. behaviour.
Now the production of Drones has entered the market-place, the Arms Industry being what it is, we are a hairsbreadth from having these weapons sold to extremist states - Bahrain is one of the West's favourite customers at present - now there's a thought
