US DRONE STRIKE YEMEN IN PHOTOS: UNITED STATES OF ASSASSINATION (BURNT OUT VEHICLE AND BODY PARTS)

Dear Americans,

These are very graphic pictures. The photos show the victims killed by a US drone strike near Sanaa, Yemen on 23 January 2013. That’s about a 20 minute drive from where I live with my wife and 3 kids.

I would love to assure you that this man Obama turned into dead flesh deserved his fate, for he was a criminal, a terrorist.

Unfortunately, my dear Americans, I cannot assure you of this. For I do not know who this man was, when he was still alive, and I certainly know that you do not know him either.

But what bugs me about this dead man that we all do not know, is that no policeman, prosecutor, judge, jury or court in the United States of America knows him either. No American court, judge or jury decided that this man is guilty of anything. Obama decides, and we are not allowed to know how he decided.

Does that bug you? It really should, if being American means anything to you.

Obama executed this man in your name. Obama says he does it to keep you safe. The death of this man whom you do not know should really bug you, dear Americans.
