"According to American and Pakistani sources, U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan kill ten civilians for every 'militant' killed. And according to U.S. General Stanley McChrystal, of the more than thirty people who have been killed and the eighty who have been wounded in convoy and checkpoint shootings in Afghanistan since the summer of 2009, not one was found to have been a threat: 'We have shot an amazing number of people, but to my knowledge, none has ever proven to be a threat,' said the general. But as bad as these war crimes are, it should never be forgotten that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are themselves criminal." (04/13/11)
