The Obama Administration has launched more than 390 drone strikes, eight times more than the entire George W. Bush presidency. This increase will forever affect the psyche of Pakistani/Afghan youth, who now look to blue skies with fear. Since 2009, drones have killed between 416 and 951 civilians in Pakistan.

This is truly tragic, and utterly unjust. I can't imagine any other country being able to carry out hundreds of military strikes in a foreign sovereign nation, killing hundreds of its civilians, without there being an overwhelming international outcry. We, Americans, may be content with our government-- self-styled global defender of human rights and justice-- carrying out such usurpations of international law for national security interests, but I wonder what we will think when China or Russia begin following our example?
