Through the very successful panhandling of Col. Ann Wright at the recent Veterans for Peace conference as well as donations from her and a number of others, KnowDrones.com now needs only about $1,900 to publish the letter from veterans to U.S. drone operators urging them to refuse to participate in drone surveillance/attack missions. To read the letter and donate: http://www.gofundme.com/aftimes You can get a tax deduction and save us the GoFundMe service charge by sending a check to: VFP – Chapter 87, P.O. Box 191244, Sacramento, CA 95819.
The need for this campaign was dramatically underlined last week by the announcement of the escalation planned for the U.S. drone war program that will put U.S. killer drones over the Ukraine, South China Sea and North Africa as well as Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.
Other nations to come under U.S. drones, according to an article by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, are: Iran, Syria and the Trans Sahel region of Africa; that includes Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Algeria, Niger, Chad, Sudan and Eritrea.
