    If Iraq was a war crime what is the killings using the predator?


    The United Nations denies targeting America and Israel, but an investigator has launched a study of drone attack impacts in the very same nations the U.S. has reportedly used the technology: Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Palestinian territories and Somalia.

    The goal of the study?

    To assess whether reparations are warranted, the U.N. investigator said in a BBC report.

    “There is a need for accountability and reparation where things have gone badly wrong,” said Bem Emmerson, a U.N. special rapporteur and a British lawyer, according to the report.

    A means to avoid committing war crimes?

    Surgical strikes against hostile elements kill far less people then a full on invasion.

    Problem is these drone strikes are far from surgical. The amount of innocent women and children killed in these Drone attacks is staggering.

    Terrorists are not legal combatants or innocent civilians protected under the Geneva Conventions.

    There is no war crime if innocent civilians die by accident in the act of attacking terrorists or even legal combatants. The intent to harm innocent civilians has to be established for a war cime, which is impossible to claim in court.

    These anti-US scum at the UN should be kicked out of this country for openly supporting terrorists with their kangaroo court activities. The US doesn't target innocent civilians on purpose, collateral damage is part of a war and it is a war terrorists started against us.
