US military diverts flood waters to save self

To go along with yesterday’s post…here is another post from “God’s Politics Blog”.  It is a short post but has several links within it that give you more background.   The US has apparently diverted flood waters in Pakistan to save a military base that launches unmanned drones for extra-judicial killings in Afghanistan…and in the diverting of flood waters we’re putting more communities in Pakistan under water.

Define trespassing…please

An interesting article/blogpost about a group of peace activist who illegally trespassed on a US military base…they’ve turned their trial into one about the ethical/legal use of remote controlled warfare rather than their walking onto a military base.
