I was in Danville, Ohio, where I talked with a woman who had traveled to Pakistan several years ago. She said among a good number of people there, she experienced a distinct “coldness toward Americans.” One of the reasons is we have been sending unmanned, drone planes into the mountain regions of Pakistan/Afghanistan and bombing suspected Al Quieda and Taliban targets. The problem is the bombing runs are also killing innocent civilians (men, women and children) in these remote mountain villages. This would be akin to another country bombing in our Rocky Mountains to eradicate, say, terrorists; but at the same time killing some of our innocent men, women and children in places like Aspen. I mean, how would we react? Note: A recent Green Party news release explained that Pakistan Green Party leader Liaquat Ali Shaik, in a tour of American cities, met with American Greens to discuss major points of agreement, including the need to “end drone attacks.” The release said some 900 civilians have already been killed in these attacks and villages have been left in ruins. What’s more, almost a million people have apparently fled the area for other parts of Pakistan, many ending up in refugee camps. The Green Party calls for immediate relief and resettlement programs, including compensation for those who have been affected. Our administration would agree with that.
