“Horrible & Numbing”: Chilling Testimony From U.S. Air Force Drone Operator On His First Kill
I do know how depressing this all can get and I, by no means, intend to ride the wave and thus feed the egregore. However, I'm not folding to see the actual hand revealed nor playing my fool card in hope that the suit might change on the next trick (ever heard of the poker-tarot game?). There is nothing to lose for insomniacs like us in throwing our best effort in a bid to put an end to the constant hijacking of our minds by alerting heavy sleepers. In comparison, the risk of doing nothing would be far worse. So much worse indeed. As Dumbledore told Voldemort on their ultimate confrontation: “your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness” (Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix). Wouldn't all this provide sufficient motivation to all those who aren't already dead inside? If not, is there any hope of resurrection from such kind of death?
Former Air Force pilot Brandon Bryant is one of the first ever United States drone operators to speak out against what has been happening overseas for a number of years now, which is the murder of countless innocent lives. Bryant served as a sensor operator for what’s known as the “Predator program” from 2007 to 2011. He was responsible for manning the camera on the unmanned aerial vehicles that carried out attacks overseas before leaving active duty in the Air Force, and, as Democracy Now reports, was actually given a certificate that credited his squadron for more than 1,500 kills.
The US clearly encourages and rewards this type of activity. Think about that while you consider what is still happening around the world, including in Syria.
