U.S. Killer Drone Policy of

Targeted Assassination

  Military drones train at the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Center in the center of Hawaii island and other sites in Hawaii

     The Obama administration has released a previously secret 18-page policy guidance document [President Policy Guidance, or PPG] that lays out how potential drone targets may be chosen and approved and the President’s role in the decision-making process… The release comes as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union

     If the target is a US citizen or someone living in the US, or if there is not unanimous agreement among the President’s key national security officials regarding the nomination of the target, it will be submitted to the President for a decision. However, the head of the nominating agency themselves can approve lethal action against a proposed individual if all of the major national security officials unanimously agree it should be undertaken, but the President has to be apprised of the decision.

     Read the full article here Newly released American drone policy explains how US citizens, other targets can be chosen

      They make it sound like you are being nominated for an Oscar or Grammy award, but the reality is that the president and/or the head of the Killer Drone nominating agency and other national security bureaucrats are acting as Judge, Jury, and Executioners. What has happened to due process of law?

More Drone Killings and More War are NOT the Solution to Ending Terrorism.

Drone Killings and War are Terrorism! Why Do Americans Hate Beheadings But Love Drone Killings?

End U.S. military interventions for global control of resources!

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
    4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
    5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.

Bombing as American as Apple Pie

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

            It’s Bombs Away for the USA                                 In Libya Again!

(one of many countries where the U.S. created total chaos)

     How many countries is the US currently bombing?

 Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen?      (Have I missed anyone)

 (It seems like the media doesn’t care)

In addition to countries the U.S. is bombing, US Special Operation Forces are presently in 147 countries (more than 70% of the nations on earth)  http://www.alternet.org/world/do-you-know-how-many-countries-us-militarys-deployee

Here’s a quote I wish I was hearing from one of the U.S. presidential candidates:

“If I were the president, I could stop terrorist attacks against the United States in a few days. Permanently. I would first apologize to all the widows and orphans, the tortured and impoverished, and all the many millions of other victims of American imperialism. Then I would announce, in all sincerity, to every corner of the world, that America’s global interventions have come to an end, and inform Israel that it is no longer the 51st state of the USA but now — oddly enough — a foreign country.  would then reduce the military budget by at least 90% and use the savings to pay reparations to the victims. There would be more than enough money.  One year’s military budget of 330 billion dollars (now $600+ billion) is equal to more than $18,000 (now $30,000) an hour for every hour since Jesus Christ was born.  That’s what I’d do on my first three days in the White House.  On the fourth day, I’d be assassinated.” —William Blum, author of “Killing Hope:  U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II,” and “Rogue State:  A Guide to the World’s Only Superpower”

NO MORE WAR!

Save humanity and all life from destruction!

mushroom cloud leaflet     War, especially nuclear war, and human made climate disaster, are the greatest threats facing our world today. The U.S. has a permanent war economy that requires endless enemies and endless wars.

The U.S. Military is the world’s greatest polluter. It is the single largest consumer of oil and the largest emitter of of CO2 greenhouse gases. It has caused extensive radioactive and chemical contamination of the planet’s air, water, and soil, including the Hawaiian Islands. Leaking massive underground fuel tanks threaten fresh water sources on the Island of Oahu. Pearl Harbor, once a rich fish breeding area is now a military toxic super fund site. Chemical, biological and radiation weapons have been test fired on several island. The 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area in the center of Hawaii island is contaminated with a wide rage of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation. Yet this base continues to be used as a live-fire bombing range resulting in the spread of this toxic pollution, endangering the lives of troops, residents and visitors alike.

The U.S. is currently waging war in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, and elsewhere. The enemy is ISIS but the U.S. is the daddy of ISIS. It helped create ISIS. Now the U.S. is surrounding Russia and China with military bases resulting in increasing tension and the risk of nuclear war by accident or design. Hundreds of nuclear weapons are being pointed at each other and the weapons are on hair-trigger alert. Meanwhile President Obama has authorized the spending of $1 Trillion dollars over the next 30 years to modernize the U.S. nuclear arsenal which is already capable of destroying the world many times over. Surely we can find a better use of such funds to heal our planet, rather than cause more death and destruction. Let us unite to stop this madness and put an end to war.  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45140.htm  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-19/chinese-military-vice-chairman-urges-troops-get-ready-combat-xinhua  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45187.htm

August 6th and 9th are days to commemorate the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. It is a time to reflect and rededicate our lives to building a just and peaceful world for future generations.

Stop Bombing Hawaii!

For people, plants and animals, for air, land and sea…

RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific), the world’s largest U.S. led deadly war game, is taking place in and around Hawaii from June 30 to Aug. 4.

Ka La Ho’iho’i Ea – Hawaii Restoration Day!

On July 31, 1843 British Admiral Richard Thomas restored the Hawaii Kingdom government from an earlier British unjust and illegal takeover in February of 1843. King Kamehameha III proclaimed before a large crowd, ua mau ke ea o ka ‘aina i ka pono (the life/sovereignty of the land is perpetuated in righteousness). The King’s statement became the national motto.
