"We like to think of the drone war as something far away, fought in the deserts of Yemen or the mountains of Afghanistan. But we now know it's closer than we thought. There are 64 drone bases on American soil. That includes 12 locations housing Predator and Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles, which can be armed."

We will protest this on the Hawthorne Bridge at 1st and Madison on the west-side at 3:30 PM on Fridays until we pass some regulations against the use of drones. Obama joking about the use of drones is not funny to the 60 children who have been torn apart by our drone action since he took office. President Obama has a kill list and orders the killing of individuals who are our enemies. Civilians in the way at the time of our drone attack are not very important, it is like---Well, too bad! This use of drones indicates we are murderers in the international community and it must stop. Join us if you can, stop say hello, wave or beep your horns at these old guys who want these wars to stop and the use of drones outlawed. Not so much to ask!
