Revelations of former drone operator: ''I saw men, women and children die''

Publication time: 26 December 2012, 15:42

American drones, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), have been responsible for a large number of war crimes against Muslims, mass murder of women and children, the destruction of houses and etc. since their inception in the early 2000s.

 

In the last year, even pro-American puppet regimes express dissatisfaction with the continued killing perpetrated by drones. Despite this, the US is constantly expanding the range of assaults.

 

The drone strikes occur in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan. There cases of using of drones in Sudan.

 

Former United States drone operator, 27-year-old Brandon Bryant from Montana worked for nearly a decade flying Predator drones.

 

Changes, occurred over the decade in the life of Bryant, made him think that he could find a better job, than killing Afghan children.

 

"I saw men, women and children die during that time, he admitted. - I never thought I would kill that many people. In fact, I thought I couldn't kill anyone at all".

 

Replaying his experience, Bryant noted that after killing his first two men by drone strike, he then "cried on his way home" from work. The 27-year-old commented about how he felt lost from sanity, "I felt disconnected from humanity for almost a week".

 

Shockingly, Bryant detailed the accounts of a time he mistakenly, but by orders, killed a young boy in Afghanistan.

 

Before the hellfire missile hit the target and the mud-roofed house was destroyed, a boy walked around the corner. Bryant recalled asking, "Did we just kill a kid?" In response, his operational partner said, "Yeah, I guess that was a kid".

 

If more honorable and moral individuals who have been in the drone business were to come out about what is going on, we probably would hear more of the same stories, writes in this connection Spread Libertynews, which told the story of the drone operator.

 

The newspaper points out that despite of the mass murder of children and women it can hardly be expecting that the situation would improve.

 

For instance, Obama's "counterterrorism" advisor, John Brennan is looking forward to an expansion of overseas drone use.

 

Brennan explained earlier this year, "There are aspects of the Yemen program that I think are a true model of what I think the US counterterrorism community should be doing".
