As Americans mourn the deaths of 20 children and 6 adults in the Newtown, CT tragedy – and¬†the gun control debate¬†has reached a fever pitch – autonomous killing systems are being funded by American taxpayers, and drone strikes continue to kill an increasing number of civilians abroad.
Barack Obama and the U.S. government policy makers have shown an¬†incredible level of hypocrisy¬†before; on the one hand lamenting such senseless deaths as have occurred in “mass shootings” while conducting their own mass killing, torture, and terror campaigns in foreign lands.
A culture of violence can’t have it both ways, though, and the welcoming of drones¬†into American skies by Congress¬†is sure to unleash physical havoc shortly after concerns over surveillance and privacy are dismissed.
As a clear sign of what can be expected, the U.S. government has asked a federal judge to throw out¬†a lawsuit brought by the families¬†of three Americans killed by drone strikes in Yemen. ¬†If federal courts rule that these cases are without merit, it will set a dangerous precedent that only the executive branch of government can decide which Americans have a constitutional right to due¬†process, while further enhancing a framework where the government will decide who is fit to be mourned and who should be forgotten.
