American Women Marching into Tribal Pakistan: Obama 'Worse Than Bush'

Anti-war activists head to Waziristan to protest drone strikes

By STEVEN NELSON

October 5, 2012

Thirty-two Americans associated with the feminist anti-war activist group Code Pink are in Pakistan for a march from Islamabad to that country's tumultuous tribal belt to protest American drone strikes that reportedly kill civilians along with their terrorist targets.

...snip...

Alli McCracken, who said she was one of the 24 American women in the contingent, said via an E-mail that Obama is "worse than Bush in some respects; he uses drones significantly more than Bush ever did, allowing him to carry out covert wars all over the world with zero accountability to Congress or the American public."

Obama, according to McCracken, has shown "total disregard for international law" when authorizing these strikes. Asked if Obama had authorized "murder," McCracken said, "Yes, as far as we know - and we know very little, since the drone program in Pakistan is operated by the CIA, and therefore cloaked in secrecy."

Medea Benjamin, one of Code Pink's leaders, is also in Pakistan for the march. We "are concerned about our safety, but more concerned about the safety of the people on the region, who live everyday with the threat of being obliterated by a hellfire missile," Benjamin said in an E-mail.

...snip...

Ahead of the protest march, the Associated Press notes that local press is buzzing with news of possible suicide attacks against the activists. The AP notes that a Pakistani Taliban spokesman denounced the march, saying "[we] don't need any sympathy" from "secular and liberal" protesters.

Why don’t they wear their vagina costumes? The local Taliban will get a big kick out of it!

In some respects I agree with her. If he's re-elected, I fully expect the Federal government to deploy deadly force from drones on American soil.

I hope you will survive, because for sure Obama will do nothing to help you if things go awry.

She's right about that.

Sorry honey. Hellfire missiles have a unit cost that greatly exceeds any expenditure that would occur to have you meet your maker right now. You're not worth the cost, frankly.

I don’t believe it. The Pak gov’t would not let them into the tribal areas. Unfortunately, ‘cause it would probably be a one-way trip.

and if these goofballs get kidnapped !

100’s of millions of dollars of intelligence reconnaissance gear will move off their normal missions to gather leads on them, HUMINT sources will be tasked to find them instead of their usual more useful tasking and 100s of hour of analyst time will be spent looking at the data. And worse if they are located, young men whose toe nails clipping are worth more then the whole combined lot of these protesting hags will then put themselves at risk to rescue them !

Vagina costumes were my first thought too. The Paki’s love vagina costumes. I highly recommend them to Code Pinko.

Let's see how deeply they believe in feminism. I bet they don the burlap bags the moment their feet hit the tarmac.

Wait, does Pakistan still have airports, or do they have to tote everything in on donkeys now?

Especially if someone starts a rumor that, the reward for detonating a suicide vest around Code Pink, is that Code Pink makes up part of your 72 virgins.

They'd be even safer than on the Berkeley campus...

Cheers!
